Meet Your Personal Trainer
Hi! I’m Serena, your personal trainer. I know that your fitness journey will be a great experience so as long as you’re dedicated + commited to bettering your health!
Personal Training sessions can be a great way to start, adopt real change, recover from an injury, or focus on better nutrition habits. Working together can be so much fun as well as a great learning experience. Let’s train hard to reach your fitness goals, see and feel results, + learn how to stay healthy while navigating hectic schedules.
I’m currently accepting new clients in Center City Philadelphia, Graduate Hospital, University City, Washington Square West and Queen Village. I hope we can connect soon.
why circuit training?
Circuit training is my favorite way to coach. This type of programming allows for flexibility but also creates efficiency in our 45-minutes together. What is circuit training? It’s the use of intervals to challenge your cardiovascular system and involves a series of high intensity stations interspersed with short rest or relief periods. The high-intensity periods are typically at or close to anaerobic exercise, while the recovery periods involve activity of lower intensity. We’ll burn fat, get stronger and strengthen your heart all in one session!
Weight loss is the most popular goal request I hear from clients. While it’s definitely something to consider, let’s focus on building strong, healthy habits that support our weight loss efforts. If you’re commited and ready for change then I am too! Together we can get a lot done.
Strength training should be a part of everybody’s workout routine. It’s essential for a strong, healthy body. Most clients aren’t sure on how to lift weights properly or how to use them in a way that’s beneficial. This is something we will learn and improve during our sessions.
Such a familar word! Circuit training is one of the best ways to challenge your cardiovascular system and improve heart health. By using our timed intervals, we work through short rest periods that challenge our cardio. This helps to burn fat + work the heart like the muscle it is! It’s time to ditch the elliptical.
What People are Saying
“Serena is a boss. A lady boss, a boss at fitness, and all without being too bossy. I’ve attended her in-person and online studio workouts, and I can attest to the amount of sweat this woman can make me produce in a mere 30 minutes. She’s able to adjust the workout when I’m in a new place and don’t have free weights, she can make any exercise fit any injury, and her price is totally right for someone on-the-go or who doesn’t want to schlep to the gym. Two thumbs way up!”
“I’ve done all types of training from team sports to individual workouts. small group to personal training. Working with Serena has been, by far, the most efficient, enjoyable, and successful fitness program I’ve ever experienced. From day one, Serena catered to my unique needs and worked within the constraints of my busy schedule. Bottom line, I’ve lost 15 pounds in three months and feel more flexible and fit than ever before because of Serena and her innovative fitness and nutritional program.”
How long are in-home personal training sessions?
Sessions are 45-minutes. Please be ready and on time so we can start right away + get the most out of our time together!
Is nutrition coaching included?
Basic nutrition coaching is included. This means you can send me your food journals 1x each week so I can make notes and provide advice. You will also have access to the SerenaFit Nutrition Plan in your Member Hub.
If you’re looking to deep dive or for a prescribed meal plan I can refer you to our in-house dietician.
What type of set-up is ideal?
Any safe, open space works for in-home training. If you have a gym in your home or building that’s great but is not required. We can get in a great workout right in your living room using minimal equipment.
Can a friend or spouse join my session?
First time, yes! If they want to keep coming back we can talk about a partner session rate and get you set-up right away. This is a great option and has proven to be very fun for past clients!
