My Philosophy of Care

The reason I became a wellness specialist was because of my family history of heart disease and strokes.

At the age of 8 years old I started noticing the obesity in my family. When I was at family gatherings I watched as most of my family members over ate. I taught myself to stop eating when I was full and to push away from the table. This was the first thought about my destiny.

Heart Disease ran on my father’s side of our family. Most of the men on my father’s side of the family died before the age of 50 years old. When I was 19 years old, my father died at the age of 67. This was my second thought of my destiny if I didn’t change the way I lived.

Strokes run on my mother’s side of our family. Most of the women on my mother’s side of the family have had strokes and died or ended up in a nursing home. When I was 26 years old, my mother had her first stoke at 62 years old. I saw my destiny again because I was a smoker like my mother and father. When my mother had her first stroke, the doctors told her to quit smoking. My Mother told me she didn’t want to quit smoking. So I made a deal with her that if she would quit smoking I would quit smoking too. So we did! Soon as I quit smoking I joined my first gym and stated exercising. This was the third time I saw my destiny and I really wanted to change my destiny.

After seeing three different times in my life that I needed to change my part of our family medical history. I have never stopped exercising since my mother’s first stroke. I hired a personal trainer and fell in love with having a personal trainer. After having a personal trainer for several years, I decided I wanted to be a personal trainer. I now have been a personal trainer for 20 years. Exercising is my hobby and I’ve made my hobby my career and I love it.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

After we have our first consultation, we will start with our first session. Your first session will be starting with what we decided to have as your first goal. Depending on your goals, we would start you any where from stretching, cardio to using some weights.

My Inspiration

My inspiration to become a functional personal trainer was my family long history of heart disease. I worked out on my own for many years and didn't reach my goals on my own. I hired a personal fitness trainer and that is when I saw the change in my health. My trainer helped me with my food, strength and cardio to get me stronger and healthier. I fell in love with training. I wanted to help others get to where I did so I went one step further and became a functional personal trainer.

Darlene is very knowledgeable and has a passion to help her clients.
I highly recommend Darlene for any of your personal needs regarding fitness and health. Darlene is very concerned about her clients and put all of her energy into helping each and everyone. Amazing Trainer and again highly recommend her.
I worked out with Darlene for many years, during that time she managed to keep my body both healthy, flexible, and younger than my age. Darlene was always up to date with current health, and fitness facts. I consider Darlene a well rounded trainer who cares about her clients! Chris J.
I have worked with Darlene for several years. During that time she helped me with many issues that I faced as an aging women. Her classes were excellent and helped me in many ways but mostly to maintain my muscle strength and keep my flexibility. Darlene is very knowledgeable about the body and in particular the aging body. I would highly recommend her for men and women.
I became friends with Darlene when I lived in Texas. I acted as sort of her "guinea pig" when she first started training to become a personal trainer. She is excellent at what she does. Just wish we still lived near each other so she could help me now. I highly recommend her.
At 60 years of age, when I completed 6 months of chemotherapy and 30+Radiation treatments for breast cancer, I was in the worst state in my life, both physically and emotionally. Darlene was recommended as a physical therapist who could help me. We began working together and she helped me gain strength, balance, muscle tone and confidence. She knew how lymphedema needed to be treated and how cancer treatment depleted one physically. I have now worked out with her individually and in groups for more than 13 years. As I’ve aged she has adjusted my routine and advised me through these years, challenging me to continue to exercise. I’m grateful for for her expertise and friendship.
Darlene helped me get back on a schedule with my fitness. I really enjoyed the classes. Her instruction was customized to my issues and goals. She was great at correcting my form or suggesting an alternate excersise to accommodate my lower back. She's a professional and you will benifit from her experience.
Darlene has been my personal trainer for over 10 years. She has helped me to increase my upper and lower body strength, motivates me to do cardio and stretching, has helped me to strengthen my core muscles, and has ultimately improved my functional fitness for daily activities. I am pleased with the results Darlene has helped me achieve and maintain. I recommend scheduling a free consultation with Darlene regarding your personal fitness needs and goals.
I worked with Darlene for over 10 years before I had to move away. She’s an incredible trainer. Very knowledgeable, patient and a sense of humor which I appreciated. When I work out now, I have her voice in my head telling me what I need to do. I highly recommend her.
Great workouts that keep you challenged!
So thankful to Darlene for her assistance on my fitness journey. I learned a lot that I have been able to continue for my lifetime wellness.
Darlene has been my trainer for almost 15 years, beyond fabulous. Dedicated and devoted to each and every client on an individual basis, due to their physical needs and goals. Safe, knowledgeable, and strives for you to be strong, healthy and happy.
Darlene has helped me stay fit for over 10 years. Her exercise routine is not one size fits all. She takes great lengths to tailor a routine that is suited just for you. I would not be as able bodied and strong without her expertise. I highly recommend her for your own well being.
I have been working out with Darlene for over fifteen years. In the beginning she motivated me to get in shape, but most of all to stay with it. Her positive attitude and skills make working out both enjoyable and beneficial.
I used Darlene for years. She is so professional and so well qualified. I still call her for advice on physical fitness, diet and health matters.
I have been working out with Darlene for years, She's absolutely fantastic. She takes the time to get to know you and your abilities. She is kind and has patience. You can tell that she has a passion for fitness and loves her job. I would highly recommend Darlene for a personal trainer.
Darlene has been such positive influence in helping me stay motivated to reach my health and fitness goals. I know when we work out I am not going to get hurt because she has an in-depth knowledge of the body and it's muscles due to her multiple certifications and continuing education. She knows how to work with and/or around any physical limitation I might have. Working out with Darlene is always fun and different.......you will not find a more caring and professional private trainer!!
I have been working with Darlene for two years. As a cancer survivor with significant Lymphodema my needs are unique. With Darlene’s guidance and encouragement I have full range of motion in my shoulders, have seen strength and endurance and flexibility increase, and feel great. I could not have accomplished this without Darlene.
Darlene helped me regain my movement in my arm after breast cancer surgery. She has helped me stay healthy in a positive environment. Over the years, if I have had any issue with something sore or hurting, she has researched and provided direction for improvement. I highly recommend Darlene.
I have been working out with Darlene for several years and love it. She works us hard, she knows our individual issues and works with them. It’s obvious she loves her job. I’m in much better physical shape since I started. I feel stronger, more energy, more focused. I would highly recommend Darlene for a personal trainer.
Been training with Darlene for many years. She is an expert in all aspects of taking care of your physical body. Also is trained in CPR and teaches many classes.
Darlene is thorough and outstanding. Best professional for fitness and total health.
