What is a Holistic Personal Trainer?

It’s a personal training that involves discovering the condition of the client’s body internally & externally, to identify postural deficits, musculoskeletal imbalances, current lifestyle (Weight, Exercise, Nutrition, Health, Energy, Mental, and Emotional Fitness, Lifestyle) & more. This information is used to meet each client where they are physically and mentally to effectively facilitate the goal attainment process which leads to client success in multiple dimensions.

Linda’s goal as a Holistic Health Practitioner: (with over fifteen years of experience) is to promote adherence & self-reliance to fitness, nutrition & the adoption of a holistic lifestyle. As a Healthy Habit Formation Coach, she’s non-judgmental, an active listener & empathic which ensures that her clients are mentally present not only at the beginning & session’s end but on a moment by moment basis; this promotes mindfulness leading to the development & strengthening of the client’s mind & body connection. In the end, her goal is to have the stimulus become the reward. Therefore, fat loss or muscle gains & healthy lifestyle adoption become byproducts. Her ability to customize her services based on each client’s present moment condition ensures that he/she remains engaged, challenged & successful in reaching his/her Fitness, Nutrition & Lifestyle goals.

After sustaining a severe tibia plateau fracture (plate & screws) over eighteen years ago, Linda’s recovery ignited her desire to adopt a healthy lifestyle & her passion for helping others achieve optimal physical & mental wellbeing. This is done by correcting physical limitations through nutrition, exercise & eliminating any barrier to health & wellness with effective behavior modification techniques.

Linda exercises regularly & follows a low glycemic carbohydrate, gluten free, soy free & a sugar-free nutrition plan; by so doing, she is now a recovered “sugarholic!†Linda not only talks-the-talk but walks-the-walk! Let’s begin your journey to optimal wellness together!

Linda loves nature & is a four-season hike leader with the Blue Hills Hiking Club, an AMC co-leader, road cycles, four-wheels, camps & more.
