Hello! My name is Tawana but most of my clients call me “Tee”. I am a Medical Exercise Trainer, specializing in post-rehabilitative exercise programming and coaching. I work with clients of all ages and backgrounds who are seeking to gain or rebuild strength, mobility and endurance after recovering from an injury, surgery and/or chronic illness. Most of my clients have completed a physical therapy program and are looking to effectively bridge the gap that exists between the end of your physical therapy program and a full return to functionality and/or sport.
I also work with clients who are seeking body transformation, nutrition and/or health coaching!
IN MY OWN WORDS
The human body is fascinating and capable of amazing things. In my experience working with a good many clients I have learned that the biggest obstacles we may face are:
- staying in our comfort zone
- not knowing what our bodies are physically capable of achieving
- sedentary lifestyles that stiffen our joints and muscles, impairing us from reaching our full potential when we embark on a training program
- physical impairments and imbalances due to previous injury, surgery and/or as a result of chronic illness
My philosophy is: Get stronger, live longer!
Life is a sport. You must be healthy and strong to win.
In order to optimize any training program, your body needs to function properly. I am passionate about correcting physical dysfunctions while strengthening and stabilizing the body. Proper exercise prescriptions will achieve this.
My focus is on your long term success and functionality. I want you to be strong, balanced, stable and maintain your stamina well into your later years. Training with me will help you build that foundation and, during the process, you will learn a lot about your body, how it moves, how it should move and what YOU specifically need for optimal performance.
I understand that adapting new fitness habits is difficult and often fails. My goal is to change your view on fitness, so that it becomes part of who you are and your lifestyle.
