VIRTUFIT PHILOSOPHY:

Variety is the key to fitness, allowing all levels to achieve balance, self-reliance, harmony and well-being through monitored progression, complete safety and fun. Everyone can make great strides and enjoy fitness with diversity and adherence. When fitness is a passion it becomes contagious. I have never duplicated a workout with a client in over 100,000 sessions. Your success will include your nutritional, cardiovascular, flexibility, strength, psychological, cognitive and restorative health. This varies for all clients, but as you progress it will be easier and easier to find your way. The philosophy I prescribe to is that of consistency with variety. We must constantly test ourselves, our heart and our head to improve.
