    I have been involved in the very top level of sports and athletics for most of my life. As a former professional rugby player in South Africa and England,and soldier in the Unites States Army, I have a vast and unique knowledge base in regard to strength and conditioning. I have been fortunate enough to train and learn from all-time ranked powerlifters and many top tier athletes in my previous professions. I specialize in strength-based athletic training, hypertrophy and body recomposition (changing how you look). My mission is to provide you with a unique, challenging yet effective program allowing you to see results, reach goals, and leaving you wanting more. I am excited to share my expertise with you - whether you are wanting sport-specific programming, to look and feel better, or just be able to live a healthier lifestyle!

    ELITE TRAINER*

    After receiving my degree in Sports Medicine and Physical Education, I became certified as an athletic trainer and have worked in the physical therapy/sports medicine field for 17 years. I currently have over 20 years' experience. Although there are many duties and skills performed in this profession, exercise instruction has been the most important component of my career. Rehabilitation, basic daily activities, competitive sports, and recreation are all guided and improved by exercise. Good overall health and fitness makes every facet of life more enjoyable. Growing up, my athletic focus was dancing and swimming in which I competed from age 5 through college. During my collegiate years, I was also in a head-on car accident and had to overcome my own injuries. This has made me see how crucial exercise can be from both ends of the spectrum. Knowing that we all move and function differently and have our own unique history of aches and pains is key to individualizing workouts, as well as teaching proper techniques. Making time for some form of exercise every day can be one of the best decisions anyone can make. If you are just starting an exercise program, continuing a program after major orthopedic surgery, or an experienced exerciser wanting to try something new, I am here to help.

    I believe exercise is not about a number on a scale or wearing a certain size of jeans. It’s about being able to do the things you need to do and want to do. I became a trainer because I love to help people reach their fitness goals and improve their quality of life and do the activities they enjoy. I have been involved in the fitness industry for 20 years, teaching classes and working with all ages and fitness levels. I have seen the importance of being held accountable and setting realistic fitness goals and believe that every step forward should be celebrated.

    Exercise is beneficial for any age or fitness level; however, one size does not fit all. The key is to incorporate what motivates and challenges you while at the same time retaining an element of fun. With this in mind, I take your current needs and abilities and create a comprehensive program around them. Working with populations ranging from seniors to power lifters, I provide guidance, education and motivation to help individuals reach their health and fitness goals.

    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.

    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, rehabilitationm and weight loss clientele. Strength training and power lifting are also in my “wheelhouse” so to speak. 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 body building. 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!

    Courteney Suiter

    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.
