Exercise has always been part of my life. I love to dance and growing up in Melbourne, Australia, I participated in dance classes from a young age. As I grew older my exercise expanded to include: aerobics, running, strength training and martial arts.
After receiving my gym instructor certificate and finishing my degree in human movement (aka physical education), I moved to Jerusalem, Israel, in 2001. There I became a certified exercise instructor and started my personal training business.
Having trained clients with physical pain I realized that the mental aspect of pain needed to be addressed as well. Therefore, I trained to be a life coach with the “Yozmot Group”. Having finished the courses, I now have to complete my practicum by training a total of 6 coachees (clients) under supervision to receive my certificates.
Why Me As Your Personal Trainer/ Life Coach:
⇒ I like getting to know my clients.
Understanding who you are and what you are capable of, mentally and physically, allows me to push you to where I know you can go.
⇒ I love to be creative when training my clients.
In any situation, I can show you interesting and challenging exercises that will help you achieve your goal.
⇒ I’m fanatic about correct form and technique.
You know you are in good hands due to my extensive knowledge of exercise and years of experience.
⇒ I’m insightful.
This allows me to understand what is really going on with my clients at an emotional and physical level. In turn, I am able to provide my clients with clarity and guidance.
⇒ I am patient and encouraging with my clients.
I understand that it takes time to learn new things and to create a change in your life.
I enjoy giving my clients the positive motivation they need to succeed.
⇒ I care about my clients.
I like to check up on my clients to find out how they are and what they were able to achieve towards their goal throughout the week.
