We believe that the keys to staying fit as we age are all about having the right understanding and awareness about how our bodies move, how to work around injuries when and if they occur, having support from others, making movement fun, and most importantly, training for a better quality of life outside the gym.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
We do things a little differently at Your Health First llc. All of our training is done without shoes. Your wouldn't cook your dinner with over mitts on, would you? Training in shoes is not much different. You'll also never see our clients swinging kettlebells on their first day, or using any machines. We believe in teaching quality movement patterns from the ground up, rather than just exercises. Everyone starts with the basics, and progresses at their own pace. We train each side of the body both independently, as well as together. We believe in holding a private, judgement free atmosphere, where learning can take place without pressure, or competition. Most of all, we believe that learning to move better should and can be fun!

Hear What Others Have to Say
As a 76 year old senior, I have really bad knees with almost no cartilage remaining in my knee joints. Carrie has been teaching me how to walk, sit, climb stairs, and move without using my knees, therefore allowing almost pain free movement.
I fell flat on my back on an outing to the park with my family recently and, using Carrie’s techniques, was able to roll over and sit up and get back to my feet with a little help. I also learned just this past week how to get completely up onto my feet from a prone position without any help or support using only my own body and Carrie’s techniques.
I would highly recommend Carrie’s training to anyone with mobility issues, and especially to anyone with painful knees. Carrie is professional, personable, understanding, and her training facility is top notch.
