PERSONAL TRAINING BENEFITS

Exercise and physical activity are both natural and preventative forms of healthcare that help the body in several ways.

 

For pre/postnatal clients specifically, exercise can:

  • decrease the occurrence of pregnancy aches and pains

  • allow for a smoother delivery

  • increase chances for a quicker recovery and a healthier postpartum

  • formal education about how their body works during exercise

  • inspiration to give themselves grace during their journey to health

Personal Training

General Personal Training  { 6o mins. ]

 

One-on-one private, personal training session with Abby includes a warm up, specific cardio and strength workout tailored to your needs, safe cool down with effective stretching at the end, and time for questions and conversation, including nutritional guidance, navigating your relationship with fitness and health, and educational tips.

 

 "From the very start, [Abby] was so encouraging and supportive, making me perfectly comfortable. While she pushed me to give my very best during every workout, she encouraged me to listen to my body and talk about any frustrations or negative feelings I experienced. She never dismissed them and helped me work through them so that I could continue my workout successfully. I loved being able to change things up and that no work out was ever the same. I now ENJOY running, hiking, mountain biking, swimming and so many other activities! Not only did I lose inches, I also gained strength, courage and confidence!" - Jenny K.

  • a few minutes of soft tissue massage at the end of your session (yes, please!)

 

 

"I am thankful to have had Abby as my personal trainer during my pregnancy. She is very friendly, thorough, and willing to adapt to my needs. She is professional and well trained and the exercises gave me the strength I needed during labor. She is an excellent prenatal trainer and I loved working with her. I highly recommend her!" - Nikki C.

"Abby is more than a fitness trainer. She really helped to restore not only my health and body, but also my heart and mind.  She created a program for me that incorporated my needs as a busy working mom and helped me ease back into a fitness routine that I could manage after having my son. She reminded me of the importance of treating myself with grace and carving out time to put myself first. She creates a challenging and supportive fitness environment that honors each person's personal journey...without judgement." -Tracee P.
