Since retiring from Olympic and World Cup competition, I live in Lake Placid, with my husband, U.S. Biathlete Tim Burke, and continue to travel between that great former Olympic village and key locations in Europe to participate in a number of professional activities.

Personal Training is as unique as each individual client. As your professional fitness expert, it is an honor for me to help you reach your fitness goals and improve your quality of every day life.
It doesn't matter what goals you have, what shape you are in, or how old you are. After your initial consultation, you will begin individualized training to quickly make progress on your goals
Your Personal Training sessions will fit in your daily live. We will find the times which work best for you, in order for our workouts to become a routine priority in your life.
We can set up short-term plans (days, weekends) or longer term objectives (seasonal, year-round) in a number of activities, including skiing, running, walking, hiking, cycling, stretching, mobilization, and functional or specific strength.
As your personal trainer, I also will answer your questions about nutrition, relaxation and/or training plans.
Effective training is all about efficiency! The aeroscan® is the best physiological test I know. These test results will improve the efficacy of any training program and produce more results with less effort.
Using the aeroscan® test protocol, you will learn your optimal fat burning zones, aerobic capacity zones, and maximal training zones.
Regardless of whether you are a beginner or an experienced competitive athlete, with the aeroscan® test you avoid overtraining and “pointless“ training sessions.You will train at the optimum training intensity from the very first minute.» Why take an endurance test?
You go running few times a week and wondering why you don´t loose any weight? You might want to know your most effective zones to burn fat. The areoscan® test will tell you exactly how many calories you burn from which nutritional resource at each moment.» Why take the aeroscan® slimfit fitness test?
Exercising on a regular basis is one of the key points for a healthy lifestyle, but only one. Another critical point, which all of us do on an even more regular basis – is eating. Why do we eat? We want to provide our body with energy. We want to feed our cells daily with all macro and micro nutrients that they need in order to perform various functions so that we can be healthy.
You can find high quality macro and micro nutrients in healthy, organic, whole foods (foods which are not packaged or processed). As a personal trainer, I love being with clients, coaching and supporting them in exercise and nutrition. I am an active, health conscious individual, I like to eat healthy, enjoy big salads and a wide variety of vegetables, but once in a while (like the majority of people) I have french fries, nachos, or other processed, convenience foods. That´s life, but is important to find a good balance an a well fitting solution for your life.
For some of us, me included, it might also be time to consider high quality supplements for your energy, recovery, immunity and overall wellbeing to fill the gaps and allow you to achieve a higher quality of health. More information about this topic, you find HERE.
I am a certified Z-Health trainer. Z-health is neuroscience based training, which involves all the systems our brain uses to make us not only see well, but balance and move well.
Our brain is our control center; it regulates not only our knowledge and mood, but also our vision, our balance, movements, mobility, pain, stress, our power.... Pain, for example, is a decision, or construct, made by the brain, based on the perception of threat. When our brain needs to compensate for bad vision, it slows down movements. That´s why you walk slower and take smaller steps when it´s dark. Our brain´s priority is it to be safe, to stay alive. When it doesn´t feel safe, due to the vestibular or balance system not providing accurate information, our brain will slow us down. It can do that by making us dizzy, sending out pain, reducing range of motion, mobility, flexibility, etc.
This are only a few examples. Our brain can be very creative in how it controls our activities and behavior. The nice part is our brain can be trained, with specific movements, eye work, specific balance exercises, and more.
I am so passionate about this neurological training, because it can make a huge difference in a short amount of time. Our neuro-system reacts very fast and gives you feedback immediately.
AND: it really is for everyone!
