I ENJOY HELPING PEOPLE IMPROVE THEIR LIVES BY HELPING THEM BE ABLE TO DO THE THINGS THAT THEY ENJOY; BE IT THE ABILITY TO LIFT THEIR GRAND KIDS, RUN, WALK, LOSE WEIGHT OR JUST FEEL BETTER ABOUT THEMSELVES.
My clients range in age from 30-92 and many come to see me in order to manage pain or recover from a specific injury. I have had clients with scoliosis, neuropathy, arthritis, herniated discs, bursitis, and other chronic pain and issues that are interfering with their optimal quality of life. I also have clients who are looking to build strength, train for athletic performance, lose weight, or to just move and feel good, and I love working with all of them!
things i like to do
My first love is animals, primarily horses. I have been riding them my entire life and studied Horsemanship in college while completing my BA. I currently have 3 horses, 3 dogs, 2 cats and 7 chickens. The chickens are the only ones who earn their keep on my small hobby farm; more formally known as “Peg’s little slice of heaven.” I have also worked for several local veterinarians where I learned a great deal. All my friends tell me I should have been a vet.
I am also an ardent Tarheels fan; really to the point of being obnoxious. I love sports and appreciate the immense hours of training athletes commit to in order to excel in their sport.
I became a group fitness instructor over 10 years ago when a strength class instructor left and talked me into teaching the class. I guess the bug bit me because I then started teaching the senior strength class at Training Partners. Peggy and Charlene then convinced me I needed to become a personal trainer. I became an ACE certified Personal Trainer so now I get to work with clients one-on-one each week. I really enjoy seeing them improve their balance, strength and self-confidence.
Peg is an amazing instructor. She entertains us the whole hour! Her balancing segment is great, and I do feel a lot more confident when walking. Grateful to continue with her via Zoom during the winter months.
What a delight to have a class with Pegge again. She is a good instructor as well as a entertainer. She makes exercising fun.
