One-on-one attention is the core of my personal training philosophy. No two people are the same, so no two workouts should be identical. Group fitness gyms, bootcamps, CrossFit classes, BodyPump workouts, and other high-intensity programs are designed for one thing and one thing only: to make as much money as possible by optimizing space and time. Instead, I decided to create a facility that puts the client first.
The average person isn't prepared for group training. Over the past 20 years, sitting has thrown our bodies out of alignment. We must realign the hips and spine with stabilizing preparation before attempting any complex movement. That's where I come in.
I chose to specialize in training clients with back injuries because it’s something I personally had to overcome. I was born with degenerative disc disease that weakened my spine. When I was 17 years old, I lifted weights that were far too heavy and herniated two discs in the process. In seconds, I went from invincible to injured. Over the next year, I tried physical therapy, acupuncture, and steroid injections, but nothing worked. I had to have double microdiscectomy surgery and completely restart my fitness journey with substantial life changes.
To this day, I have only met one person with a worse back than mine.
Faced with chronic back pain and permanent degeneration, I had to find a job that allowed me to stand instead of sitting at a desk. It hurt, but I still loved working out, so I chose to study and pursue personal training. Over time, I learned from my mistakes and shifted my focus from heavy weightlifting and cross-training to functional movement and core strength.
My practice is specially designed for middle-aged adults with injuries, but I can help clients of all ages and mobility levels. Eppinger Fitness is a private facility with one-on-one instruction and low-impact workouts, so it’s perfect for introverts and COVID-cautious clients.
Relax, be yourself, and learn at your own pace in a safe, supportive space.
