Abby is a certified personal trainer, pilates instructor on mat and apparatus, D1 swimmer, tri-athlete, coach and adventurer (Appalachian Trail, Mt Washington, Adirondacks). As an exercise movement specialist, educating people on “how to” make them healthier through movement and nutrition is just the beginning. Creating a well-balanced life comes from believing that you are what you eat and you are designed/built by how you move. It is my passion to help people find the balance of all 3 parts of life’s cycle of health… mind, body and spirit. To have a healthy body you have to have a healthy mind and spirit. I am passionate about delivering quality coaching, nutrition, training and knowledge to all of my clients. I have 3 very active boys and 3 step-daughters, ages 9-16, all of whom live and breathe, sports, health and happiness, while juggling life’s challenges. “You have only one life to live to make it as healthy as you can. What is right in front of you for the taking is yours to grab and own; your breath is where it starts, the flow of movement is what gets you to it, and your mind and body will do the rest.”
