About Me

Hi, my name is Gisele. I’ve been an exercise enthusiast all my adult life. I started as a runner in my late teens early 20’s and became hooked on strength training in my 30’s. I thought I was ahead of the curve. I went to the gym 3 days a week and worked out hard, right? Wrong. As the years progressed, reality reared it’s ugly head and bit me in the you-know-what. My lifts were getting weaker and recovery time was longer. Joint pain had become an unwelcome visitor in my daily life. I was collecting belly fat regardless of how many reps I crunched on the ab equipment at the gym. It was frustrating but I wasn’t going to give up just because I was getting older. So three years ago I switched tracks. I said goodbye to my graphic arts career and signed up for a 500 hour program at the National Personal Training Institute (NPTI). This in depth program provided me with instruction in anatomy, exercise physiology, nutrition, and practicals in everything from running to olympic lifts. I wanted to own it! I thought I was in pretty good shape going into the NPTI program. I was wrong. But after several months of stability, core, balance, circuit and strength training, I saw an amazing difference in my posture and core strength. I learned how to effectively manage and eradicate joint pain that, in my mind, was permanent. I was empowered! Since graduating, I have continued my education with a National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) certification and have specializations in Corrective Exercise (posture is everything) and Senior Fitness. I am also a certified kettlebell instructor. I worked at a local gym for 9 months to get some more training experience and have been an in-home personal trainer ever since. As a licensed SilverSneakers FLEX instructor, I also enjoy teaching balance classes at the Ambler Senior Center. I thank my mother for my early endeavors into exercise and nutrition. She introduced me to yoga, yogurt and my first slice of whole grain bread.

What to Expect

Our first meeting will include health screening questions and assessments for heart rate, body composition, posture and movement. In addition, there will be a nutrition consultation (never say “diet”, say “food replacement”). You will receive printed copies of all your workouts. A typical session will include: 1) Foam rolling - sometimes we’ll do this at the end of the session instead. 2) Warm up - varied cardio exercises, dynamic stretching, core and balance drills. 3) Workout - compound exercises, all body movement patterns, isolation exercises with single leg/arm progressions, and plyometrics. 4) Cool off - static stretching. I design my workouts in supersets and circuits which target increased metabolic rate and a shorter road to lean body mass. Adipose beware! Some of the tools we will use are dumbbells, kettlebells, sandbags, stability and BOSU balls, balance pads, platforms, suspension straps, cones and bands.
