ISSA Specialist in Group Fitness (IN PROGRESS)
Participating in a group fitness class offers a great, and often more affordable alternative to working one-on-one with a personal trainer.

As an ISSA student working towards my certification in this area, I can plan, implement, and lead group fitness classes to help you achieve optimal results in a fun and safe environment.
