You Can Be Healthy & Fit For The Next 10, 20, Even 30 Years!

I've worked in the fitness industry since 1995. I love helping people get fit but was fed up working in cookie-cutter gyms where no one really cared about the members so I opened Body & Soul Fitness Studio and No Pink Dumbbells Boot Camp. I’ve helped lots of people get healthier, stronger, fitter, and more confident.

Unfortunately, there are still many people who are hesitant to join a gym, especially those of us 55 and over. Some are intimidated, or afraid of hurting themselves, or not sure what exercises to do, or uncomfortable with the spandex crowd, etc.

Or, maybe they have joined a gym and/or started exercising but gave up because they didn’t see results. Contrary to popular belief, all exercise is not equal.

I get it. We all want to be healthy, active, and look and feel good. We want to enjoy a high quality of life and remain independent. But we don’t want to waste our time doing things that don’t work or aggravate any issues we may have. Why would we?

Strength training is the key to an active, healthy life. It makes your muscles and bones stronger. It makes everyday tasks easier. Done correctly, it also helps with balance and flexibility. And, no, you don’t need to lift huge weights to get benefits but you do need proper direction to get the best results and avoid injury.


What I’ve found is that many folks want more supervision, personalization, and instruction in their fitness program but not necessarily one-on-one training. That’s why I created RetroFit. It’s a twice weekly, 8-week program of small group training that’s individualized for each participant. It begins April 8th. RetroFit is NOT your typical exercise “class”.

We’ll be doing movement assessments at the beginning of the session and all exercises will be adapted as needed. Everyone works at their own level. Obviously, I can’t explain all the program details in a simple blog post so call me today at (717) 509-7777 to see if you qualify or visit for more details.
