Whether you are looking to improve your physical, cognitive, or nutritional fitness, either-way, fitness is an ongoing journey. As with any long-term successful plan, you have to account for hurdles, roadblocks, setbacks, and relapses. All of these unless accounted for can hurt your progress and self-esteem.

Mr. Bill Gates- the founder of Microsoft once said, "we all need a coach" and that quote is the most relevant to the field of health and wellness. As your coach, I would help guide you to overcome any unavoidable setbacks. After gaining a good understanding about your personal health and fitness needs, I would see the signs of these oncoming relapses ahead of time whether, that shows up as a sugar binge or not being able to exercise due to bad weather or a busy life, and instead of you having to figure out how to bounce back. I would have already gently and carefully nudged you away from these temporary or permanent setbacks.

Relapses and setbacks cannot be avoided no ...

Dr. Suman is one of the most amazing people I have worked with. Her knowledge in the field is unmatched, but, I loved working with her because she is patient, kind, very compassionate, and will do all it takes to help her students. Please work with her if you are looking for someone to help you get off the diet cycle and learn to eat for your health. She does not stand for fads and will help you see results.

Private Fitness Teacher

Fitness has always been my passion. I love mixing up the routines and the endorphins I get from being active. My goal is to create a workout that you get excited about. Every 'body' is different.
We will work as a team to meet your goals athletically and aesthetically. I believe working with your own body weight can be truly challenging when you understand alignment, what muscles to engage, and the biomechanics of the body.

I am pre and post natal certified through the PMA.

My daughter has only had her first lesson with Lindsay but we were both impressed with her. She is friendly and was able to make the exercises very tailored to her specific needs and goals. We are looking forward to continuing to work with her.
Rojean
Lindsay has been an amazing yoga/ballet instructor for me. I started taking beginners ballet lessons with her in June of 2019 and she was so patient with me. I later on decided to take yoga with her a couple months later and she is just nothing short of awesome! She is very well spoken during yoga and really knows what she’s doing. She always accommodates with my needs and makes sure I’m comfortable with whatever we’re practicing for that day. For example she’ll ask how I’m doing that day and if I say I’m feeling anxious, we’ll do a relaxing and calming session, or we might do something more physical and energetic if I need to get hyper and start my day energized. She has obviously had a lot of experience in this field and it really does show. I’m super glad I chose lindsay to be my instructor and would never consider going with anyone else.
Maureen L.
I love taking my online classes with Lindsay! Having a really busy schedule, I thought at first this was an indulgence to have a class in the comfort of my own home, however I've rethought that since I've started. These are necessary to keeping, not just my physique in shape, but my ballet up to par, as well as my mental state of being calm, focused & happy. Lindsay is very skilled at shifting each class to what is best for me that day. She's skilled & knowledgeable, proficient, professional, friendly, fun & gives me a thorough workout! Thank you Lindsay!

Great first lesson! Teresa is very pleasant to work with and extremely knowledgeable. Looking forward to many more lessons to come!
Kiri
Teresa was awesome! She worked with me and my limited flexibility and really set me up for success with exercises to integrate into my routine. She was also very cognizant of a prior injury and presented long term alternate solutions to tissue regrowth. I really look forward to working with her again!
Brittany
She was really great, we have only had one lesson so far but she made me feel very comfortable and I feel like she will be perfect for me helping me get over my stage fright. She came up with quite a few ideas up front and can tell she is taking it seriously, which makes me even more confident in her because it is such a serious issue for me. I am looking forward to working with her.

"Kathy L: I started training with Patty in my early forties for quite a few years. I looked and felt the best I ever did in my life. When my daughter went to college I took a break because of finances. But I told Patty I would be back. Well it has been about five year and in June of this year I made the call I was thinking of making for months, asked Patty if she could fit me into her schedule. Thankfully yes. When I workout by myself I would make excuses, and my eating habits became terrible, and I gained weight. Patty got me back on track quickly. When I would make excuses she asked me when did I think I could get it together and it made me think. Patty said maybe if I got my eating under control with my workouts maybe other situations in my life would start to fall into place. Patty was right I already have started losing weight and other things in my life are falling into place. Patty is a
great trainer and motivator. I am glad Patty is in my life. P.S. I travel forty minutes to see her and it's worth it !!!"

"I m a female senior citizen of 75 yrs old and have suffered from chronic back pain and weak and stiff muscles. when I met Mary I fell in love with her. Her pleasant and warm disposition attracted me immediately. I liked the idea of her online training sessions, so I don’t have to travel to a gym. She is very patient with me and knows how to keep me motivated to continue exercising. She has changed my life and boost my desire to get better.
Mary is very talented with many years of experience in both Pilates and physical training and she is a beautiful ballet teacher as well! I highly recommend her !"

"I have been taking private sessions with Mary for a few months now, but due to Covid-19 we have recently discontinued the in-person training and moved on to online virtual sessions via Zoom. To be honest, I was hesitating to move on to virtual training since I was not familiar with technology and the concept of online training and so on. However, Mary is such a kind and lovely person which really helps when training remotely at home. She always explains everything clearly, so you can easily understand the necessary know-how and technique of each exercise and get the same benefits as of an in-person session. In addition to that, if I were a little out of place, she would kindly let me know by correcting any misalignments that might occurred throughout our sessions. I look forward to all our sessions with Mary! Highly recommended!"

"SHARLENE: I have been training with Patty since 1999. My body has changed quite a bit through the years working out with her. Patty has guided me through training slumps, weight fluctuations, injuries and menopause. She is extremely knowledgeable in all areas of resistance training and cardiovascular training. Patty teaches you the proper form to use while preforming an exercise to maximize the benefit to the muscle as well as to prevent injury. Over the years I have watched Patty study for additional certifications to improve her skills as a trainer and educate herself on new information and techniques in may areas. I have always been impressed with her drive, talent and skills. I highly recommend Patty as a trainer"

I do not have to leave my home and that makes it so much easier to continue on with exercise. It is the perfect amount of working out.
