Nancy began competing in dog agility in 2005 and became a nationally ranked competitor, having earned 16 Master Agility Championships. Following a torn meniscus repair surgery only 10 weeks before a prestigious National event, she sought to find a science based approach to help prevent recurrent injury and further enhance her athletic performance.
In Nancy’s constant pursuit of knowledge she has gathered a wealth of information that has benefited her tremendously in improved health, fitness, and athletic performance. This journey led Nancy to the study of assessment and corrective and functional exercise techniques which she enthusiastically shares with her clients.
Nancy earned her Personal Trainer Certification through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, followed by additional NASM credentials as a Corrective Exercise Specialist and Senior Fitness Specialist. She furthered her studies of corrective exercise and functional fitness by becoming certified in Gray Cook’s Functional Movement Systems. As she applied the principles she was learning to her own body, she was rewarded with significant improvements in her athletic performance.
These improvements led to a strong dedication to customize safe, effective programs specific to the goals of her clients, inspiring and assisting them to build a strong foundation through improved nutrition, strength, endurance, energy, and overall sense of well-being.
Nancy holds additional Certifications as a Functional Aging Institute Specialist and Group Specialist, Black Rank TRX & TEAM CAMPS Instructor, Level 1 & 2 Dynamic Variable Resistance Training Coach, Power Pilates Mat Instructor and Precision Nutrition Coach.
Nancy is a member of the Medical Fitness Network, Arthritis Foundation, Alzheimer’s Research and Prevention Foundation, IDEA Health and Fitness Association, Functional Movement Systems, and TRX Core.
Her current favorite activities include walking the beach with her cherished royal Cavalier King Charles Spaniels Cassie and Charm, gourmet cooking, and pairing fine wine with food!
Nancy’s greatest rewards come from seeing her clients look, feel and function at their best as they enjoy their hobbies, sports and activities of daily living more fully.
