As A Part of the Exercise Inc Team
What brought you to Exercise Inc? The first thing I noticed when I first visited the Brownsburg location was the professionalism and knowledge displayed by Bo, Vee, Amanda, and Holly. It was very obvious that Exercise Inc was far more professional and thorough than any other place I have ever worked. Then, after I finished my first workout, I was completely sold. Over the years, I have had several injuries and surgeries and have arthritis in several joints. I haven’t been able to train for several years. This type of workout has not only allowed me to train again, but to do it completely pain free. I wanted to be a part of this and thank Bo for giving me that chance.
What year did you become part of the team? 2013
Why do you like being a personal fitness coach? I love helping people feel healthier and stronger. It is very satisfying to be able to help people meet and exceed their fitness goals, whatever they may be. Fitness goals may sound similar for everyone, but to each person their goals are very different. Finding these individual goals and then working toward them is the key to success.
What is your favorite exercise? The leg press: I have always had strong legs and have always enjoyed training legs. I love the intensity of our leg press!
What is your least favorite exercise? Anything that isolates the abs.
Anything else you want your clients to know about you? I have been training clients since 1985. They range from a 10 year old boy to an 85 year old man and everything in between. I have also trained many professional and amateur athletes, including a top professional boxer and a collegiate shot put champion.
