About My Holistic Fitness
My career in the fitness industry started at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas where I earned a degree in Kinesiology. While working on my degree, I worked for one of the country's premier luxury health facilities, Canyon Ranch Spa club, performing fitness assessments, personal training, and instructing various classes such as Cycling, Sculpt, Meditation, and Core Training.
Upon returning to Long Island, I worked as an Exercise Physiologist under Cardiologist Dr. Felix Oviasu in Garden City, New York. I then transitioned into another area of the Healthcare Industry, working as a Physical Therapy Assistant under Glenn Segal, PT and Bernhard Sengstock, DC at Universal Health and Rehabilitation in Islip, New York.
I began to apply the conservative, calculated approach that he learned in the healthcare industry to the fitness programs he was designing for his growing Personal Training clientele. My clients had remarkable results in both injury rehabilitation and prevention. My next goal was to take my clients to the next level, optimal vitality. My next position as a health club manager afforded me the opportunity to attend various seminars and lectures relating to the fitness industry. One particular lecturer, was Paul Chek , founder of the C.H.E.K. Institute. His holistic philosophy and science based knowledge resonated and was in sync with my wellness principles.
For the last few years I has been intrigued by the natural healing power of the body when it is in balance, and my clients have reaped the benefits. My training has shifted in focus from primarily treating the musculoskeletal system to a more comprehensive understanding of how multiple factors, such as hormonal balance, nutrition, digestive health, and stress can effect exercise, and how exercise can affect those factors as well. I am currently studying to become a Certified CHEK Exercise Coach this July.
