I received a Bachelors in Kinesiology and a Health and Wellness coaching certification from University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee. Also, I am an ISSA certified Specialist in Performance Nutiriton and NASM certified personal trainer. My years of working in Physical Therapy has proven beneficial in developing safe exercise programs for my clients. During 2009 I moved to Yanti, China where I attended Kunyu Mountain Shaolin Martial Arts Academy and was trained in martial arts and certified in 24 step Tai Qi and QiGong. This was especially rewarding since I am the first female in the academy’s history to earn this certification. Upon returning to the United States, I spent two years competing in INBF Figure competitions. I have moved to NYC to feed my ambition and strive to be the best by continuously adding to my fitness arsenal with certifications in Kettlebell, Powerplate and Vipr.

“Terra’s training style was tailored to my fitness goals and objectives. She did a wonderful job of mixing up the workouts and keeping things interesting. Each session built off the prior but included new moves and activities. My favorite part of our sessions was the warm ups. She looked at my objectives and fitness level and got us started on a Tai Qi program that pumped up the blood and calmed the spirit at the same time. She is great!”
