I have a passion for helping people achieve their goals while highlighting the importance of connecting to and being aware of their body. With this emphasis, I believe it is possible to restore and strengthen the body while continuing to pursue movement that you love. I have been training individuals, groups and athletes for over 5 years.
Competing in gymnastics and playing tennis at an early age made a huge impact on the importance of movement for me; I developed a strong understanding of muscle coordination and strength. My first career, a sedentary one, was working as a financial accountant in NYC. Movement slowly lost its place in my life and my body clearly suffered. It wasn’t until after I developed my first back distress that I began to prioritize movement back into my life. I started to notice that small improvements in my diet and physical activation had positive effects on my overall wellbeing. I fell in love with the process and realized that sharing these discoveries with others was what I wanted to do in life.
My new career was taking off, however the journey with my personal fitness goals began to take their toll - symptoms of overtraining and musculoskeletal injuries manifested from compensatory movement patterns. I soon learned at Shine Physical Therapy that building strength and conditioning on a structure that was already out of alignment was doing more bad than good. Because of this unbalanced movement I have a personal understanding of frustration and pain. However, my current chosen profession has served me well as I also have an understanding of how to fix and overcome this pain through my education and experience. My own personal journey has allowed me to develop a passion for helping others feel confident with the transition of their physical therapy exercises to a fitness program based on their goals and what they love to do -- whether that be in a gym setting, yoga studio or outdoors. I look forward to working with you and helping you bridge your physical therapy routine back to your fitness routine! -Constance
