There are deep rooted reasons why managing stress is extremely important to me. In 2003, my Dad, whom I loved very much, took his life. Major stress late in his life led to severe depression, and ultimately to his death.
I became involved with the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention in San Francisco, and am a big advocate of mental balance and open communication.
I want to help clients with their stressful problems in life, both in fitness and in other areas. By listening, even offering advice during rest periods of sets, I can help clients with stress reduction (not to mention the awesome endorphin rush from exercise!).
I also offer a mixture of yoga exercises into my fitness routines.
