Therese is certified by NASM and specializes in strength gains (her favorites to transform are glutes and back!) and improving body composition using a combination of functional movement, kettlebells and bodybuilding-style workouts.
Her training mentality consists of moving well and often, improving strength for life experiences and teaching her clients the tools to make improvements 24/7.
Therese instructs clients concerned with body composition in how to work through a pyramid of needs, beginning with the appropriate quality and quantity of movement paired with base nutritional requirements. Working from the bottom up ensures clients build a solid foundation to meet goals, exceed goals, and maintain them for life.
In addition to client-specific training goals, she places emphasis on deep core strength and mobility for all her clients, who currently range from the ages of 21 to 81.
Therese is also passionate about local, whole, sustainable eating and the impact specific foods have on the body. Therese's keen interest began as a teenager with visits to SF where she learned from her aunt, the founder of a bay area organic granola company. She continued to further her knowledge of nutrition and preparation through the years and loves to experiment with cooking and baking in a flexible range of dietary specialties.
Therese is certified in Strength Matters Kettlebell, Animal Flow Level 1 and is working on a Corrective Exercise Specialization through NASM.
