Kenneth A. Howell
Lead Personal Trainer
I enjoy working with people, helping them reach their goals in weight control, sports enhancement and physical fitness. I believe that fitness is the root of longevity and healthy living. If we want to be healthy and active in our senior years we need to get fit and stay fit. In many cases, high blood pressure, cholesterol, and overall feeling of well-being can be improved by exercise, healthy eating and staying fit. Exercise should be extended outside of the gym. I believe that you should enjoy life and stay active through bike riding, hiking, golf, tennis, swimming or any other event that you enjoy and that gets your heart rate up.
Some people come for specific training with a good working understanding of what it will take to meet their goals. Others need to be educated as to the feasibility of their goals and what it will take to accomplish them. I very much enjoy working with people to give them the tools to be successful at their quest. I specialize in strength training and sport enhancement conditioning. I also enjoy working with seniors to improve strength and balance for stability. I have had additional training in weight management, obesity, heart disease, shoulder problems, running, and protein/creatine supplementation.
