While I’ve been athletic for a good portion of my life, I’m well acquainted with the struggle of weight loss. I know every excuse in the book – because I made them. I tried nearly every diet program on the market, and battled with body image. Through those experiences, I realized that every body is different. There is no one-size-fits-all recipe for success. Long lasting success comes from creating a fun, active, maintainable lifestyle that yields results – whether the goal is fat loss, improved mobility, increased athletic performance or all of the above. It has to leave you wanting more.
Let me help you achieve a maintainable level of fitness that will enable you move confidently into each day, no matter what life throws at you. With a special focus on whole body movements, Olympic and Power Lifting techniques, and Interval Cross Training, overall fitness and strength can grow by leaps and bounds. Whether your goals include improving flexibility, losing body fat, increasing overall athleticism, event specific training, or anything in between, I want to design and coach a program that will get you there. Put me on your team and let’s discover what you’re capable of.

In high school and college I was an active person participating in swim team, color guard, and track. Even though I was active, I still struggled with my weight. In college, I decided to really get down to the nitty-gritty and get healthy. I hired my own personal trainer who encouraged me and challenged my idea of fitness and what eating healthy really looked like. I lost the weight I needed to and started competing in triathlons. I started beating my personal records again and again. Even after a bad bike crash (that put me in urgent care after the race) I got up, hopped on my beat up bike, finished the race, and placed 2nd in my age category.
I believe every individual is created unique and different! Therefore, every individual’s fitness abilities and needs are also unique and specific to them. My goal, as a personal trainer, is to meet you at your current fitness level then create a fun, effective, and engaging program specific to your health and fitness goals. My job is to help you be the best you can be in your body!

I have been personal training for 21 years and I enjoy it more and more as time goes on. I have a dynamic, creative, and very unique style of training that benefits clients at any level. I possess a strong background and invaluable experience in training athletes, fitness competitors, rehabilitation and weight loss clientele. Strength training and powerlifting are also in my wheelhouse. I take my client’s goals seriously, your success is my success and your failures are my failures.
My philosophy about fitness is simple; don’t start that which you cannot maintain. If it’s too drastic or too difficult eventually you will backslide. There are plenty of modalities these days from CrossFit to bodybuilding. I utilize a training platform that takes things from all styles and focuses heavily on accountability and lifestyle change. Making sure I provide clients with the tools to not just succeed but to learn how to maintain the goals we accomplish together. There’s no point in doing something if you can’t keep it up after. Let me be your tour guide to a healthier, better looking you! I will keep things positive with high energy and the workouts inventive and challenging so we are constantly moving forward and never getting bored. I never met a plateau I couldn't conquer!

My name is Courteney. I am a mother and a health enthusiast; however, I have not always been this way. I became interested in health and fitness toward the end of my undergraduate studies. I began turning my life completely around for the better, and I started seeking out natural and holistic alternatives to physical and emotional ailments. Eventually, I got to a point where I wanted to serve others with the information I had learned. I had contemplated changing my major during this time but realized that my emphasis in behavioral modification assisted in helping my clients achieve the goals they sought after. Since then, I have continued to pursue my graduate degree, became certified in personal training, and I am currently re-certifying in nutrition. Most of my clients have sought and achieved weight loss, mobility and flexibility, and mass building goals. I am truly passionate about the work that I do and you will see this when you meet with me. Nothing motivates me more than being able to see my clients progress toward their goals and learn to live happier and healthier lives.

I am a wife and mother. I enjoy running, hiking, weight training, gardening, spending time with family, and traveling. Fitness has always been a part of my life in one way or another and in just the past 4 years, I started working with members. I have had the opportunity to instruct group classes, Women on Weights and Prenatal Fitness and I've worked as a health and well-being coach at the Haselwood Family YMCA. My focus is to pass on my excitement and love for fitness to each client as they work toward reaching their goals with knowledge, discipline, and encouragement through a personalized training program. Whether you are new to your fitness journey, looking to break through a plateau, or want to find your way back to a healthy lifestyle, I will aim to challenge you every step of the way.
