Use of cables, free weights, elastics, bodyweight exercises, TRX straps, BOSU, & balance tools.
Health and Weight Loss
Unique to each individual's needs, I utilize the formats and techniques that the individual prefers, or is best suited for, in order to create habits that lead to positive health changes.
Body changing exercises revolving around use of Clean, Jerk, & Snatch. Foundational exercises are taught alongside resistance training and power assistance movements are taught to enhance the overall skill of the individual or technique pertaining to a functional activity
Outside of the classroom Yoga may be taught alongside other training goals or stand alone for those to deepen their personal practice. Versed in Vinyasa(movement/flow) and Hatha(longer holds, less transition) as well as several guided meditation techniques. Personal practice design is available with 100% unique tailoring to the individual. Focus in my practice of Yoga is always on proper alignment, connection to breath, and unique physical concerns.
