"Abbey's knowledge and love for her work paired with her individually designed program and FUN make working with Abbey the singularly most important physical activity I could do. At age 56, I am stronger and more active than I ever thought possible." - Shelley, NYC
So what will we be doing?
The first personal training session will consist of a fitness evaluation. We will look at your physical history and discuss your goals to determine what needs to be done to reach your best level of fitness and health.
From there we will get you started on this exciting new journey! Not only will you be working towards a healthier you but also discovering new things about your body you may not have known. Our sessions will never be completely the same we will of course be working towards your goals but it will never feel just like a "routine". At the start of every session we will check in to see how your body is feeling. If the day was particularly stressful or there is an ache, our workout will address these concerns. Every few weeks we will also check in to see how the program is progressing. Are your goals going to be met? Or do we need to modify things a bit? Comunication between us is very important and I strongly believe in keeping progress assessment as an open dialogue.
The exercises will draw upon different forms that I have been studying and teaching for years. The challenge of the exercise will always be at your level and geared towards what you need to ultimately better balance the body. By drawing upon several different exercise forms be it weight training, yoga, or pilates we will have a well rounded work out that does not neglect one area.
Breathing will also be a very important part of our session together. How is breathing an exercise? Well, without focused breath in your exercises the muscles are being starved of oxygen. Without oxygen you might as well not be doing the exercises because the muscles are not going to contract or stretch to their full capacity. We want to maximize your time - New York is one busy place. Who can afford to work out poorly and who should anyway! Our sessions will be to the point, working to bring your body into a better balance and accomplishing your goals through the use of low-impact yet challenging exercises.
I promise that you will finish the workout feeling refreshed and energized. At the end of the session we always close with several deep assisted stretches that will leave you feeling more limber. We will also do some specific massage as your body needs it. My goal is for you to feel longer, taller, and ready for anything after every session!

In my 40+ years of exercising to stay in shape, I have worked with numerous personal trainers and experienced a wide variety of training philosophies and styles. I have never been as pleased nor achieved such visible, and more important, functional results, as I have in the two years I have been training with Abbey. Owing to her extensive knowledge of the body and the preciseness with which she targets specific muscles, and the unique way in which she tweaks every exercise to customize it for my particular needs, my posture has totally changed and my long standing lower back and neck issues have been remedied. Abbey puts 110% of herself into every minute of a training session. Anybody, young, old, male or female, is certain to benefit from her many talents. - Sherry, NYC
