Meet Lori


Lori’s philosophy:

Challenge yourself every single day.

As you go through the grind of every day life, challenge yourself. The challenge can be as simple as “I will not eat that last cookie” to “I am going to work out for 1 hour today.” Every second of every day we face numerous choices. Simply choosing to walk instead of take the elevator or doing an extra push-up or drinking a glass of water leads to a little healthy progress on the pathway to healthy living.


In my past life, I was a collegiate athletic coach and educator. I worked with student athletes to improve their personal fitness and skills so that we could be a stronger team. I will carry that dedication and effort over to my personal training clients. My goal as a personal trainer is to help you achieve your goals. My aim is to get to know my clients on a personal level so that I can better understand your motivation and can effectively aid in your progress.

I want to talk to you, listen to you and laugh with you every single workout all while challenging you to push yourself…
