... the problem comes in finding activities that you enjoy and can fit into your schedule. Goodness knows there is no shortage of options out there. Sometimes is just a little exploring of the options to find the right fit for you.

At the gym
I aim to create programs that are realistic, fun, time efficient and effective, for both myself and for my clients. I subscribe to the belief that you need to enjoy your exercise in order to be able to fully commit to lasting changes to your lifestyle. And let's be realistic, if you don't enjoy it on some level...you won't want to do it.
Typical adult recommendations are as follows:
Strength Training: 2 to 4 days per week
Cardiovascular Training: 4 to 7 days per week
Flexibility Training: 4 to 7 days per week
