Water Fitness

I became certified as a Water Aerobics Instructor with the American Sports & Fitness Association in August.  I thought it was time to make it official since I've been doing water exercise since I was in my the 70's!  I've also been training many of my clients in the water this past year.

So now I am certified so I can group train at a gym or rec center!  Currently, I train a small group of women at one of my client's community pool.  Our group consists of four women who liked the idea of getting a great workout while enjoying each other's company.

If you are interested and have a couple other friends who would like to form a small group class at your pool, contact me and get more information.

Or if you prefer to train privately at your private or community pool.  It is amazing what exercises one can do in the water that you aren't able to do on land!  This is very empowering!!

Some exercises are done without any equipment, but I find using water paddles, a water volleyball, and an exercise flotation belt very beneficial to rounding out our workouts.

Best of all--water workouts are FUN!

Sessions can last anywhere from half an hour to one hour and 15 minutes--depending on your fitness level and your time constraints.

If you live in the Palm Beach Gardens area and would like to find out more about water exercise training with me, please contact me.

Welcome to My New Personal Training and Fitness Blog!

Since I'm coming to the anniversary of my 4th year of being a certified personal trainer, I thought it was time to finally create a blog regarding personal training. 

I have to admit that after years of creating websites in the past, I didn't feel compelled to hurry and create a professional website. I was too busy working at a gym training clients and then after leaving the gym, training clients privately.

I do have a website, but I haven't taken the time to expand on the information.  I got published almost 4 years ago, but with having a profile page at Idea Fit and a personal training Facebook page, I just linked to those.  Also, because I also had a personal trainer page, at LinkedIn, a Pinterest page, and also listed at various personal trainer directories, I just didn't feel the urgency.

I also already had a blog, but the subject matter was regarding leading a raw food diet.

I will use this blog to share information regarding personal training, fitness and health articles, pictures, quotes and to keep you up to date on various workshops I'm attending, new things I'm learning, and various types of training I'm doing with my clients.

In addition to getting fitness information, It will be a way for you to get to know me and learn a little bit about my personal training style.
