I want to help you achieve your goals whether it be through fitness or recovering from an illness or an injury.  While at WVU I worked with numerous members to adjust their exercise programs to meet and exceed their specific needs.  I can also offer a modernistic and alternative type of exercise through aquatic training.  In water, you can gain greater strength and balance with less impact on your joints.  You will see faster improvements in water than on land.  Come see me and we will work together to accomplish a higher quality of health and wellness.
