— percept: feel better.
"Percept" is the foundational term for my personal training philosophy. I want my clients to be able to feel better.
Not just to feel better. That's a given. I want to develop your *movement intuition* so that you:
know how an exercise is supposed to feel
understand what each movement is working towards
engage the why for each part of personal training--it's what gets you through the tough times.
Bolster Your Mood
Some studies show that exercise can improve your resilience to anxiety and depression (psst--it's the main reason I exercise). Let's discover what movement is best for you and get your mood and 'tude strong!
Give Balance to Your Schedule
A personal fitness routine can give you physical and mental stability when times get tough. There's no time like the present to get back into exercise. If you aren't perfect, you're in the majority. Let's work together to build your program!
Build Long-Term Health
One brick at a time, invest in your longevity with daily exercise. That wall will help prevent a myriad of chronic diseases--but it takes time to build. Let's get started now, even 10 minutes a day can be effective!
