Hi, I'm Andreea!
I have a B.S. from Loyola University of Chicago in Exercise Science. I am a Certified Personal Trainer as well as a group fitness instructor. I work with a variety of populations ranging from 10 year old all the way to 96 year old clients! I love meeting new people, assessing their strengths, limitations, and creating a personalized plan to help each client achieve their goals and improve their health.
One thing that initiated my interest in exercise science was learning about the extensive connection between the brain and the rest of the body. Exercise can be used as a means to help one's mental capacity as well as their physical well-being. Exercise can be used to treat depression, increase attention, increase energy levels, sharpen focus, and so more. You just can't go wrong. I'm here to try to help YOU learn about all things fitness to improve your own health, both mental and physical.
A little about my style...
During my initial assessments, I conduct a variety of tests that examine each client's flexibility, mobility, power, strength, endurance, etc. I also take a variety of measurements such as body fat composition, BMI, and circumferences. The workout plans I create take each individual's strengths and limitations into account, and they focus on small realistic goals that are geared towards achieving the main fitness goal.
My goal is always to improve overall health, increase energy, focus, strength, and endurance in a healthy, enjoyable way.
