A personal trainer can create a safe, effective program that meets your individual needs. Sharissa has designed thousands of workouts for all types of bodies.
On working with seniors:
“I love to work with seniors,” says Sharissa. “Seniors are a population that is often ignored and underestimated by most fitness professionals and by society at large. It is amazing to me to watch a person who is over 60 and was told just to stay in bed for their health a generation ago to improve with exercise. I love to facilitate the improvements of my senior clients. I love seeing them walk better, not have to worry about falls and bone breakage, and be able to do things they haven’t been able to do in years. Anyone can improve. You just have to work at it with the proper guidance.”
On working with pre- and post-natal clients:
“I also love to guide my clients through the birth process. My pre-natal clients have very easy births with little pain, and my post-natal clients look like they did before having their babies – and sometimes better. ”
