I have enjoyed being a personal trainer at a private fitness facility for over 10 years in my home town. Most of my clients are age 50 and above. I see a huge need in assisting and encouraging senior citizens to stay healthy and active as they age. I was hired by my first PD individual 3 years ago when he was initially diagnosed. Immediately I began studying about exercise for PD. Then I came to notice how many other gym members had PD. They also began asking for my help. Soon after that a close family member was diagnosed with PD. That was it! I became laser-focused on learning about Parkinson’s Disease to help both my personal and my gym family. That is how I came across a PWR! Parkinson Wellness Recovery site on line. I am so happy to be a certified PWR!Moves® instructor and feel blessed that I can make a difference in someone’s life through exercise!
I offer private personal fitness training, PWR!Moves one-on-one training, PWR!Moves group exercise classes, and a circuit class using lots of equipment in the gym for our PWR!Moves. Our favorite circuits are with the punching bags, the Stroops bands for resisted moves, the balance beams, and the “River Rocks” for stepping and balance. Our classes are always informative and FUN! POWER UP!
