Testimonials

"Christy has two key elements necessary to train a woman through pregnancy: knowledge and enthusiasm. Using her knowledge (and personal experience!) of pre-natal physiology and training techniques, Christy trained me from start to finish. Christy was able to adapt my workout to meet my constantly evolving needs. In addition, Christy seems to have limitless enthusiasm for her work and is relentless in trying to motivate slackers like me. And it works. Without Christy's help, I would never have been lifting weights and stretching 6 days before giving birth!"

Weight Training

Did you know that inactive adults over age 30 lose about 3-5% of muscle tissue every 10 years? Strength training will prevent the reduction in muscle tissue which can cause the body metabolism to slow. Strength training will also keep the bones less vulnerable to conditions like osteoporosis. If you are not doing so already, add a weight training routine to your fitness program today!
