PERSONAL TRAINING AND/OR PRIVATE YOGA INSTRUCTION
PERSONAL TRAINING & REASONS TO GET STARTED:
Why? – As I’ve approached a certain age (which I won’t mention), I’ve found that adding in weights, resistance training and more cardio is essential. Especially with hormone changes that do all sorts of weirdness to your body!!!
Another why? Personal Training really compliments the 20 years of experience I have in teaching yoga, my understanding of optimal good alignment of the physical body/working with imbalances/health challenges/injuries, health mentoring, EFT, energy work and my love of sports.
Why work with me? Aside from the above mentioned, I will challenge you, I will get you to hit your goals, I’m a nice trainer not a military type trainer. As some of my clients say “I’m sneaky with how I get them to do things!”
I also know what its like to struggle with illness. In 2005-2006 I couldn’t move my body, I almost died, I’ve several organs removed, my body is disfigured, I have an ostomy bag, it is a disability but I don’t let all that hold me back. Rather it gives me a huge appreciation of my physical body and emotional/mental health. I’m all inclusive and have a great understanding when it comes to body image and all body types no matter what you’re going through.
Don’t like working out? – No worries, the thought of going to a gym is about as appealing as doing my taxes. – I’m not that sort of personal trainer or fitness person. I do fun stuff, without having to use a bunch of crazy equipment. It’s about being active when you can, doing the right sort of things for your body in order to achieve your goals. Plus I’m a great motivator!!!
Results? – I’m now in better shape and stronger than I’ve ever been. Seeing the results my clients get is so satisfying. The unexpected things they experience like having more energy, being able to lift heavy stuff around the house and garden, feeling better about themselves. One client told me “she felt a bit apprehensive about spending this money on herself. Now says its the best spent money EVER!”
Everyone has different goals hence why a personalized training is so effective. If you are willing to show up and put in the work, then you will achieve results. Witnessing my clients transformations is truly amazing!
Can’t get out of your own way? – I use my favorite modality (Emotional Freedom Technique) to help clear blocks about getting fit, body image, weight release as well as for stress, anxiety – actually I use it for everything and my clients love this!
Want variety? – I can offer a combination of everything I do to help you achieve your goals and to feel good about your self and your body.
Are we a good fit? – Message me if you want more information or if you have questions. I like to make sure we are on the same page so that we can work well together.
Virtual or In Person? – Virtual works great but if you live in the Cape Ann/north Shore area we may be able to meet in person depending on weather and Covid.
I’m offering a FREE 15-30 minute assessment if you are thinking that you’d like to get started or to see if we are a good fit. Just send me a message to set up an appointment.
FREE ASSESSMENT AVAILABLE FOR PERSONAL TRAINING
Different packages available. Contact Elaine to set-up a zoom appointment.
“Before I started, I felt like my energy and fitness levels were decreasing and I couldn’t figure out what to do about it. I had gained weight and my usual exercise habits weren’t helping. I knew Elaine had the expertise to help me get on track. Now I am down 6 pounds, feel much stronger, and my posture has improved dramatically due to her keen eye on alignment. Elaine continually customizes my program, pushes me, keeps me accountable but is also realistic in her expectations. I plan to continue working with Elaine and I highly recommend her.” Laura R
“Working with Elaine for personal training has greatly improved my stamina, strength and confidence in my physical abilities. She tailored her training to meet my specific needs by strengthening muscles to reduce pain in my knee and by building my cardio endurance which improved my tennis game. I learned to appreciate the small things that help me be successful in training such as proper breathing techniques and positioning so I get the most out of the workout. Elaine kept a smile on my face and is a great trainer to work with!” Sue
“I hadn’t done any yoga for 5 years due to two knee and one hip replacement. Traditional classes were not suitable for me so I decided to work with Elaine. I knew she had the experience I needed.
She helped build up my endurance, targeting the areas that need more strength and stamina and has helped me with my balance. I really like that she is so very knowledgeable and knows how to push me without exceeding my capabilities. Elaine is always so patient and encouraging and makes our time together spiritual, productive and fun!
