Online Training

Online Program Consult, Assessment, and Exercise Strategy Session

The goal of the online consult is to provide you with a better understanding of how your body is adapting to the demands placed on it. I used an active range of motion assessment process to figure out where we may be able to improve your overall movement. Depending on your goals we will decide on breathing and exercise strategies. I send you a follow up email with the recording and exercise I most recommend for your success. 

COST

$250 Initial Consult, $200 each additional session.

Online Programming

Online Programming is perfect for those people that wish to workout on their own, in their home, or at their own gym but don’t need the 1 on 1 accountability and focus that in person training provides.  This is also a great option for in person clients who want to receive additional training when they are not with me in the gym. There are two options for assessment when starting an online program, depending on your location, goals, and exercise history.

 

 OPTION 1 – ONLINE ASSESSMENT

If you do not live in the Charleston area but still want to have me build you a custom program to do on your own, we will start with a personal assessment.  I will email you an a full intake to help me understand your goals and needs assess so I can gather information on your goals, posture history, movement capabilities, etc prior to our call. After completing this information we will schedule an online meeting to do a full live assessment and to go over specifics regarding goals, time restraints, equipment availability, and anything else you feel is important to your success.  I will then write you a complete 4 week program depending on your needs. This is a very detailed program and I prefer to write each 4 week block after an assessment each month so I can make sure to give your body exactly what it needs. 

ONLINE ASSESSMENT WITH CUSTOM 12 WEEK PROGRAM INCLUDES:

  • Complete self evaluation emailed to you directly.
  • 1 hr complete postural and movement analysis with goal setting via video chat.
  • 12 week (3 x 4 week blocks) custom program (length varies according to needs and goals)
  • 1 1 hr assessment and training session every 4 weeks via video chat to go over program, exercises, form and to discuss any concerns or issues you may have.
  • Email access to me to answer questions regarding your program during the duration of the program.

COST $800 per month (3 month commitment required)

OPTION 2 - IN PERSON ASSESSMENT

For those clients who live in the Charleston area, 2 in person sessions at my private gym in Mount Pleasant (The St.Clair Strength Shed), is the best way to get started.  During these sessions we will do a complete postural analysis and a basic movement assessment. We will discuss your personal goals, time restraints, current equipment and any other factors that I may need to keep in mind when developing your program. The goal of these sessions is to figure out the perfect plan for your body so I can devise a custom 12 week program that will deliver results and focus on your specific goals.

IN PERSON ASSESSMENT WITH CUSTOM 12 WEEK PROGRAM INCLUDES:

  • 1 hr complete postural and movement analysis with goal setting.
  • 12 week (3 x 4 week blocks) custom program
  • 1 1hr in person training session every 4 weeks to go over your program, exercises, proper form, and to discuss other concerns or issues you may have.
  • Email access to me to answer questions regarding your program during the duration of the program.

COST $800 per month (3 month commitment required)

A bit more about me as your trainer

I have a passion for helping people achieve their fitness goals while always taking their postural balance and joints into consideration.  I believe that it is possible to restore the body while continuing to pursue any movements you love and I know that doing so will provide you with a stronger body and mind and allow you to perform at a peak level no matter how you choose to move.   I have been training individuals, groups and athletes for over 20 years. 

As a gymnast for 12 years and a lifelong athlete I developed a strong understanding of movement and strength, but, unfortunately, I also developed a multitude of improper movement patterns and musculoskeletal injuries.  Because of this unbalanced movement I have a personal understanding of chronic pain. However, my chosen profession has served me well as I also have a scientific understanding of how to fix that chronic pain through my education.  My own personal journey has allowed me to develop a deep passion and empathy for all of my clients and anyone suffering from chronic pain.  My educational background, devotion to lifelong learning in my field, and enthusiasm for understanding human movement allow me to stay fully engaged in my clients fitness at every session. 

I hold a degree in Nutrition and Exercise Science from Florida State University and I am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist as well as a Certified Personal Trainer through NSCA.  I have advanced training through the Postural Restoration Institute in Postural Restoration’s Myokinematic Restoration,  Postural Respiration. Pelvis Restoration, And Cervical Revolution. I also have an Advanced Weight Loss and Sport Nutrition Certification with Precision Nutrition

 
SO WHAT DOES ALL OF THIS MEAN FOR YOU?
  • I have spent my entire life educating myself on human movement so that I can truly help you understand your body and how to get it functioning at its best.
  • I am committed to constant learning so as new ideas and research emerge I will always be eyes and ears wide open so I can better serve my clients.
  • I not only can help you get stronger but I can perform a complete assessment of Lumbo-Pelvic-Femoral Pathomechanics (in layman’s terms – I can assess the relationship of the position of the bones of the hips, legs, and knees and how they function with the ligaments and muscles) and help guide your body back into alignment so that you can avoid or fix common issues such as low back pain, knee pain, SI pain, “piriformis syndrome” and many other issues.
  • I can assess thorax, rib, and diaphragm positioning and function, as well as breathing pattern disorders. Using this knowledge I can help prevent overuse of accessory respiratory muscles that may lead to injury or pain in the shoulders, neck, mid and lower back.
  • I can develop a program that address all of these issues whether your goal is to look better, feel better, train for an athletic event, perform better at your sport, or just to have a kick butt, sweaty, calorie burning, workout!  Whatever your goal is, I can get you there with a healthy body!
  • I can teach you to take care of your own body using research based exercises that help keep you in alignment during your time spent moving without me.
  • I can motivate you and be your cheerleader when you feel you are up against insurmountable odds. I want everyone to feel what it’s like to love moving.  I can help you feel like and move like an athlete.
  • I hope to develop an online resource that provides you with information as clients that you can use to better understand and help your body and fitness goals.  For fellow trainers and movement focused professionals, I hope to share my ideas and passions so we can all form discussions and learning through engaging and learning with and from each other.

In addition to being a trainer, I’m a mom, a wife, and a strong woman.  I can still run, surf, wakeboard, hike, bike, swim, kick butt in the gym, do pullups, flip in the air, walk on my hands across the room, and anything else I set my mind to. My most recent passion is kiteboarding which I picked up at 39.  I intend to move and find happiness in movement for as long as I can.
