Background

Summary

As a Personal Trainer, I worked closely with client’s Physical Therapist and Medical Physicians to help achieve optimum health and well being . I also instructed and motivated clients in isometric and ambulatory exercises. Evaluated the effects of each session and adjust the session regiment to achieve maximum benefits. Personal training is used to improve the clients' endurance, coordination, increase strength, decrease pain and prevent further injury, while encouraging clients to overcome the emotional and physical barriers that may hinder their results.
