Patrick

Pat is also a certified Exercise Coach and Holistic Lifestyle Coach through the C.H.E.K. Institute.  Patrick draws upon years of athletic strength training and conditioning and flexibility training and enhances it with a holistic approach that includes nutrition and rest.

Patrick believes that an exercise program should balance one’s autonomic nervous system, not overwhelm it.  He assesses a client’s physiological load and functional imbalances in the core and back musculature, and writes an exercise program that will lead to results.  Clients include individuals of all ages and fitness levels seeking weight-loss or strength and flexibility through proper movement combined with improved nutrition and lifestyle practices.

Sara

Fitness is my number one passion and I want to share that passion with you. I am from an athletic family and have played many sports growing up: soccer, tennis, wrestling, snowboarding and track just to name a few. I started body building my senior year of high school, inspired by my mom, who liked to copy Miss Olympia work outs. I went on to play college soccer and tennis but when those came to an end I fell back in love with the weights.

My specialty has become body contouring with muscular strength and hypertrophy. I love working with people one on one, as well as small group settings. In my career as a trainer I have learned muscle recovery through massage technique and am continuing my education in corrective exercises to fix muscle imbalances and pain caused by our everyday life. I am here to aid in you becoming the best version of you! I look forward to continuing to grow with #teamEWB as well as guiding you through your fitness journey!

Rebecca

Rebecca began taking yoga classes in college and her first teacher was her mom! Her initial draw was the relaxation that came from savasana and meditation.  Her goal is to hold space for her students so that they have a safe space to look forward to every week. A space free of judgment, comparison and expectation where they can express themselves and move their body on their mat.
