LET'S GET FIT TOGETHER
If you're looking for a smaller community to make a bigger impact on your health and fitness goals, then drop in and let's get fit together!
I have been running a successful virtual health coaching business since 2017 and have come to realize that although virtual is convenient and can produce successful results - it's not for everyone. So in order to help more people, I've created GET FIT EGV.
My vision is that it will help remove the complacency out of getting healthy and form a community within where we can support each other in all of our endeavors. A community of like minded people who love being healthy and strong.
What's right for you?
GET FIT EGV offers a variety of mediums to incinerate those calories! Whether you want to crank up the intensity or take a more relaxed approach and just work your arms or core - I have a spot at GET FIT EGV just for you.
SMALL GROUP FUNCTIONAL TRAINING
Making strides to better health together!
If you are new to this format of training, be sure to start with one of my weekend foundations workshops so we can make sure you're doing things correctly, with good technique and most importantly - safely.
If you're looking for a new place to call home, where community is a focus rather than competition, then look no further than GET FIT EGV.
Dialing It In Together
Personal training is available both in person (by appointment) or virtually.
In person training will take place at the GET FIT EGV facility.
Virtual personal training is offered via a couple of different methods. If this is something you are interested, let's talk and figure out what would work best for you.
For Everyone No Matter Where You're Starting From
Training at GET FIT EGV incorporates various forms of functional fitness, like barbell training, body weight training, HIIT, interval training, tabata, general weight training, boxing, kickboxing, running, rowing, yoga, powerlifting, olympic lifting, circuit training, boot camp, etc.
Whether you are just starting out, have been crushing your WODs at your current box or looking for that next PR, GET FIT EGV can scale it back or dial it up to keep you challenged and injury free.
LET ME BE YOUR GUIDE
I promise to take a personal interest in your goals!
SMALL GROUP FUNCTIONAL TRAINING
During our small group training sessions you can expect to not only build strength but improve your flexibility and mobility with the the various types of modalities involved within each and every workout. This is what's called functional fitness training. Read more about it below.
FUNDAMENTALS OF FUNCTIONAL FITNESS
Get Your Heart Working
Functional fitness is a classification of training that prepares the body for real-life movements and activities. Also known as functional training or functional movement, “It trains your muscles to work together and prepares them for daily tasks by simulating common movements you might do at home, at work, or in sports.” – Mayo Clinic. Movements such as squatting, reaching, pulling, and lifting will be made easier with functional fitness integrated into your exercise routine. According to WebMD.com, functional fitness is focused on building a body capable of doing real-life activities in real-life positions, not just lifting a certain amount of weight in an idealized posture created by a gym machine. For example, you could be deadlifting 400+ pounds in the gym, but when you go to put a suitcase in the back of your car, you throw your back out. Or, you can bicep curl with 50-pound dumbbells with perfect form, but picking up your child makes you pull a muscle. If either of these things sound like you, it may be time to incorporate functional fitness training into your routine.
1-ON-1 PERSONAL TRAINING
Whether we do this in person or virtually, together we will work on all aspects of being healthy - nutrition, strength, flexibility, mobility. We will work on making you whole again and/or taking you to that next level. 1-on-1 training means you get my undivided attention, we move at your pace and everything is done on your schedule.
Together we will improve your endurance, help build lean muscles mass and create a body that will continue to serve you in all your endeavors for years to come.
