In the time it takes you to drive to the gym, park, walk in, and reverse that process~ you could be done with your in-home workout! I come to your home, condo, office, or offer a local gym.

I use an individually tailored, holistic approach to helping people, and base my program for each client on their specific conditions, goals, and nutritional needs.

I am concerned with the overall well-being of area residents and offer much more than supervised exercise. I am able to help people who vary widely in their specific needs, capabilities, and improvement objectives.

Receipt of the award for Small Business of the Year for 2010 validated my "No Pain. Period!" philosophy which argues that people should feel good, not pain, while they progress.


I serve Manatee and Sarasota Counties including Longboat Key, Lido Key, St. Armands Key, Bird Key, Sarasota, Anna Maria Island, Bradenton, Cortez, and Palma Sola.

nutrition1When we hear the word bacteria we usually think of disease, but there are good bacteria that help us fight off IBS, eczema, colds, allergies, and urinary health, to name a few. Antibiotics kill both the good and bad bacteria, so replacing the good is important.
Good bacteria (probiotics) are found in yogurt, sauerkraut, miso, chocolate, pickles, and kombucha tea to name a few sources. Research points to eating 'prebiotics' which assist the growth of bacteria that have favorable effects on the intestinal flora. Pictured are some foods that feed our good gut bacteria. Bananas, chicory and dandelion root, and Jerusalem artichokes are also good sources. More Information Here

caloriesLess exercise, not more calories may be responsible for expanding waistlines. A lack of leisure-time physical activity has been linked to increased obesity, particularly in young women~ reports the American Journal of Medicine.
According to a new analysis of data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), in the past 20 years there has been a sharp decrease in physical exercise and an increase in average body mass index (BMI), while caloric intake has remained steady.The number of US adult women who reported no physical activity jumped from 19.1% in 1994 to 51.7% in 2010. For men, the number increased from 11.4% in 1994 to 43.5% in 2010. During the period, average BMI has increased across the board, with the most dramatic rise found among young women ages 18-39.
If you are one of these individuals, and can be self-motivated~ do SOMETHING active every day. If you need help~ find an experienced, Certified Personal Trainer.
