Fitness PhilosophyEvery client is welcomed and respected at the studio, regardless of your fitness background. My approach to personal training is client-centric, meaning your program is designed based on your goals, fitness level, medical limitations, time constraints and personal motivations. In order to maximize adherence to a fitness program, I help you set realistic goals that are achievable through regular exercise and positive lifestyle modifications while maintaining time for other important aspects of your life.

Prior to working as a Personal Trainer, I worked as the VP of marketing for a busy real estate firm, so I have experienced first-hand the challenges facing busy professionals in sedentary professions. At the age of 40, I embarked on a new career path because my passion in life is helping people achieve a better quality of life through improved fitness. This career change took courage and a leap of faith, and I hope to serve as an example of how it is possible to create the life you want, at any age.

Beyond general fitness training, I possess experience working with clients post-rehabilitation and with a range of conditions, including chronic back pain; osteopenia/osteoporosis; arthritis; postural deviations including scoliosis; diabetes; autoimmune disorders; eating disorders; PCOS; stress and anxiety. 

I would be honored to assist you in achieving your fitness goals. I offer a free initial consultation (with studio tour) so that you can decide if my services and training style are a good fit for you.


I needed someone who would create a program for me that was safe for my back and was aggressive enough to see results without being too hardcore. She pushes me but always ensures I have good form to prevent injuries. I never feel out of place despite me being extremely uncoordinated. I have noticed tremendous results with Janice in a short period of time.
