My weight training started 18 years ago, and it has changed my life. It has increased my energy, kept my metabolism raised, increased muscle mass and prevented bone loss. There are other activities that increase health benefits, such as balance, and cardiovascular work, which I also incorporate into my training, if necessary. I have been a Personal Fitness Trainer at The SeattleGYM for four years, and it has been a positive and rewarding experience. I believe that weight training, when done consistently, will improve your physical and emotional health and outlook. My workouts are tailored to the individual, no matter what your goals. I work with men and women and no matter what your age, weight training can be beneficial regardless of your current condition.
