Training Philosophy

Sports. Longevity. Strength.

Hi, I'm Shawna! I became a nationally certified personal trainer over a decade ago, and every day I'm grateful to be able to share my passion for sports, strength, and the joy of achieving personal goals.

My professional approach to fitness was shaped by my personal struggle with injury and chronic pain. Early in my career, this experience sparked a passion for training methods that produce strength and performance gains while supporting long-term joint health and longevity. 

Strength training allows us to play harder and enjoy the activities we love, free of pain. I can't imagine a life without the joy of fitness and pushing the limits of my body. I aim to help my clients feel that as well, with training that starts with healthy movement and strength.​

I'm dedicated to helping athletes at any level discover that strength training can be simple, powerful, and confidently pursued.  It can be difficult finding an effective method to achieve your best performance, health, and fitness - helping you get there is my primary goal and privilege.

For years I have trained as an ultra distance cyclist. As with many endurance athletes, my body became very specialized to my sport. As a result, significant limitations had developed that made other activities very difficult. Shawna helped show me a better way to utilize my entire body more effectively. In a very short period of time, the results were amazing! With her help I have safely and successfully added other sports such as rock climbing and downhill skiing to my life. Thanks Shawna!
