How I can help you with exercise


Exercise is one of the most important and versatile therapies, and can either be easily integrated with any of the other services I offer, or used on its own.  The choice is yours!


Whether your goal is to motivate yourself to lose weight, reduce stressstop smoking and drinking, or to improve your sleep, strength, balance or flexibility, then exercise can help!


My process


At your first Personal Training session we will complete a Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q). This form collects a combination of subjective and objective information which will help me to assist you in planning an exercise program which takes into account your medical health history, as well as your goals

After that first session we can meet for personal training sessions at intervals which work for you. Some people choose once a week, some people choose more often. The choice is yours. You can also choose sessions of 30, 60 or 90 minutes, depending on your preferences.

Do you need to be a member of a gym to have Personal Training with me?

Well the simple answer is NO!

Some people just don't like gyms, and besides, there are other ways to exercise

The type of exercise I offer will be primarily body-weight exercises which require little to no exercise equipment.

On good weather days we could even exercise outdoors, where practical and safe

Whether you choose to exercise with me at the gym, at work, or outside, I will help you to find simple exercises that match your abilities and goals, which are not a strain on your time, and can also be fun!
