Welcome back! It's been a few months since I got a newsletter out, but during that time I've been busy re-establishing Pure Body Fitness in the Auburn, Alabama area. I moved here in January to support my husband Will as he pursues his Olympic Dream as a discus thrower. If you'd like to learn more about
Will's pursuit of the Olympics you can check out his website
, follow him on Twitter
or visit his facebook page
Here in Alabama I work at two locations providing one-on-one personal fitness
coaching - Moore's Mill Fitness Club
and Premier Training Studio
. I also teach an outdoor fitness class (check out the side tab), and will be starting to teach Zumba very soon!
If you are motivated to get to the
gym on your own, but need some help being effective while you're there, I can also develop an online fitness program just for you wherever you are. This customized workout program can be created, and accessed through a
website, which provides animated examples of how to do each exercise. There's also an option to include notes to and from the trainer to help keep you accountable. Programs start at $99/month, and are available to people anywhere in the country that need some help accomplishing your fitness goals. Please email me
if you're interested in this new service.
