Do you also teach dance classes?
Yes. My dance classes and workshops are biomechanics-based, meaning they're a great way to learn about anatomy and healthy movement. Please visit my dance website: BodyWAGGING.dance
When do you train?
How long are your sessions?
Sessions are 55 minutes.
Where do you train?
I'm based outdoors near Dolores Park at Noe/Liberty Streets. I also train in Pacific Heights, Russian Hill and at my clients' homes.
What do you do if it rains?
I use a nearby garage gym at 21st and Sanchez so we don't have to cancel (or get soaked!).
How do I start?
Some clients can jump right into my small group sessions (2-6 people). Others are better off starting with a series of 1:1 workouts to introduce their bodies and minds to an expanded fitness vocabulary.
What should I eat before exercising?
Eat carbohydrate-rich foods and hydrate. If you only have 30 minutes, a piece of fruit will digest on-time. If you have 1 hour, a small meal that's low in fat and based on fruit, whole grains or root vegetables. If you have 2 hours, a mid-size meal. If you have 4 hours, a full meal.
How do you accept payment?
Please pay via Venmo or with a personal check. After our first month together I'll start sending you monthly invoices with a list of our sessions and fees.
What's your cancellation policy?
Please cancel at least 2 days before your session to avoid a cancellation fee. Previous-day cancellations incur 50% session fee. Day-of cancellations incur 100% session fee. My administrative day ends at 6pm.
Are your group sessions mixed-level?
Yes, my group workouts accommodate all fitness levels with a format that allows each individual to work at their own pace.
Do you offer any discounts?
I offer discounts in special circumstances. Please contact me to learn more.
What is Functional Fitness?
Functional fitness emphasizes full-body movement patterns that make you more adaptable and versatile. Examples include: pushing, pulling, or throwing objects; climbing stairs or structures; running and jumping; stabilizing against resistance. These all use multiple muscle groups and challenge your strength, agility, balance and coordination, giving you a broad spectrum of benefits from every workout.
