Physique Training

Summer specializes in physique training for those who want to go beyond basic weightlifting and sculpt their body. The process of changing body composition involves a disciplined and precise combination of nutrition, weight training and cardio. If you have the drive, Summer has the knowledge to guide you on the path to your best-ever figure.

Strength Training for Seniors

Summer specializes in the design and implementation of strength training programs for older adults.

Training protocol changes at age 50. Often, we find ourselves stuck in the same old routine, or noticing that our old regimen is causing new aches and pains, or even if we haven’t exercised in years, we may come to realize that it is time to make a change. Although there is no fountain of youth, strength training aids in reversing many of the degenerative processes associated with aging, especially muscle loss, metabolic slowdown, and fat gain.

With her studies and interest in Senior Fitness, Summer is best qualified to guide you on your journey to greater strength, mobility, and health.
