How Type A Training Can get you in The Best shape Of Your Life

We know that reaching your personal fitness and health goals isn't an easy thing. Learning new exercises that work for you. Making sure you're doing the proper technique so you don't get injured. Our personal trainers know that most importantly is being as efficient as possible with your time when your at  the gym. Lets face it, your time is important and wasting it will only lead you to quit because of the lack of results you getting.  For some it can be down right intimating which can be another reason many people don't start an exercise program.

Lastly and I know everyone will agree is that the biggest issue is having to actually get to the gym. You need to choose if you going before work, during work or the very demotivating time which is AFTER WORK.  Do I need to mention weather and traffic? Many times these road blocks can prevent you from even starting a fitness routine.  This is where we step in. We bring the fitness to you in a safe environment making it easy for you to make that commitment to your health.

Strength Training

Do you do a lot of cardio? Our personal trainers in Manhattan know in order to get the most out of your training and to reduce injury, strength training must be included in any fitness routine.

Core Conditioning

Having a strong core is not only  helpful for any type of sports that you play but it will help reduce your risk to injuries by improving your posture.

Yoga, Pilates, and Flexibility

Many people complain of being too tight or not moving fluidly throughout the day. The solution is doing moment training. Move with more ease and less effort with these types of workouts..

Mix Things Up

Getting bored with the same workouts? It's true that this happens, that's the reason our trainers recommend every 2 to 3 months you should be changing up your routine to keep progressing.

I was lucky enough to have been born into a family in which health was a way of life. From the age of 5, I have been a dancer and gymnast. While in High School, I decided to become a personal trainer, so that I could share my passion with others. I started off working in a gym, and loved every moment. Then I decided to open my own private business training private clients clients singular, in a pair, and in groups. All my clients became happier with themselves, and were excited to share their accomplishments with me.

What sets me apart from other trainers?

I believe in training my clients not just physically, but by educating them on how to live a healthy lifestyle. In time, the lifestyle becomes second nature. Besides for the fitness component, I educate about proper nutrition.

I incorporate many different styles of training. I train indoors and outdoors. In order to achieve optimal health, my sessions includes cardio, strength, resistance, and toning. Depending on each persons likes and dislikes, I have a vast selection of styles to chose from. Plyometrics, floor work, dumbbells, flexibility, pilates, dance, gymnastics, planks, jump rope, resistance, and more. At every level of fitness, cardiovascular health, strength, and muscle tone can be improved. I’ve trained all ages, children through seniors. I have trained clients with no equipment at all, using only body weight; as well as with various types of weighted equipment.

I customize each workout based on the individual needs and level of each person.

Each of my sessions are fun, unique, and sweaty!


I worked in an office for several years while training and teaching my arts and had to deal with chronic back issues and sports related injuries.

I am a certified Personal Trainer through National Academy of Sports Medicine. I have also been studying various martial arts and Tai Chi for over 10 years well as certifications in Pre and Post Natal Training and Progressive Bodyweight Training. I like to employ a variety of tools from weights, resistance bands, kickboxing and bodyweight training to get people to their fitness goals in a fun way. I am excited to be part of Type A Training and look forward to helping others live happier and healthier lives!

As a professional Personal Trainer, my passion is to guide people towards a healthier lifestyle. Everybody is unique, with their own strengths and limitations.

My method is a holistic approach to build a custom plan based on your health in every aspect (mentally & physically & dietary), schedule, and more importantly, fitness goals and needs. I aim to transform your body and mind and influence you to make more mindful decisions when it comes to your health and lifestyle.

Getting in shape shouldn’t be a punishment. It’s an amazing empowering lifestyle decision that anyone can make. I believe in finding the pleasurable side of fitness; and while there may be a sore muscle or two along the way, the benefits will be worth the discomfort! I have developed my training regime by working with a variety of people and always love adapting my program to new clients.

I enjoy indoor, outdoor, and virtual training, whatever your needs are!


My goal is to teach and equip clients with tools to help them break through their barriers, feel empowered and reach for their goals with my fun and effective training programs.

My motto:

Always earned, never given!
