Teaching Philosophy:
I teach total body conditioning classes using weights, body bar, elastic tubes, and other pieces of equipment. I combine High Intensity Interval Training (Tabata) with weight lifting. My priority is safety, so, I come to class earlier to show and correct postures, explain how to use the equipment properly and give alternatives to equipment use and exercises. My second objective is that people have fun. I design my classes so they are varied and motivating. My classes are for almost everybody, I advise new people to start with low weights and take more rests, and experienced people to challenge themselves.
