I have personal experience with eating and body image disorders, and I didn’t have a positive relationship with fitness until a few years ago. I became involved in an inclusive and supportive exercise program for people of all ages, genders, abilities and fitness levels. This program helped me see that there are so many benefits to exercise, ranging from developing a sense of pride and accomplishment to feeling strong and confident in your own body and so much more. My experience in this program inspired me to become an ACE certified personal trainer and help others develop a positive relationship with fitness as well.
A few years ago, I became involved in a very inclusive and supportive exercise program that was unlike anything I'd experienced before. It changed my life to the point that I went from rarely exercising and absolutely hating it when I did, to exercising regularly and loving it. I wanted to help other people experience all the benefits that I gained from exercise, which led me to become a certified personal trainer and group exercise instructor.

Body Positivity means loving yourself unconditionally
"I can honestly say that working with Henley has changed my life in so many ways. I’ve seen progress in both my physical capabilities and my mindset. Our work together has helped me find joy in movement, which is a feat for someone who has always hated exercise. She is extremely knowledgeable about the body and is an amazing problem solver when faced with a physical challenge. I’m so grateful that I found her and would recommend her to absolutely anyone."
Henley knows her stuff, tailors workouts to fit me, changes it up so I don’t get bored, AND makes it fun. It’s worth every penny.
"I’m so thankful that Henley is helping me heal my relationship with movement and find joy in the movement I do in and out of the gym! She coaches me to stay mindful of my breathing and posture, which has helped me be more present in my body. Our sessions leave me feeling strong, powerful, and more at home in my body."
"I have been dealing with chronic sciatic pain for a few years and have been very nervous to return to exercise because of that. With Henley's knowledge of spine-related injuries, she can appropriately select exercises that are beneficial and safe for clients like me. Anyone who deals with chronic pain can understand that it takes a toll on your emotional health as well. Henley is very aware of that and ensures that I feel good about my body and what it does for me."
"Henley is excellent at listening and then researching exercise routines to help keep me moving as I deal with the usual aches and pains of a 79 year old — all with a smile. She is amazing - even on Zoom!"
