Move your body and grow stronger everyday

My approach to fitness coaching always starts with listening to your story and your goals. Then we will complete a movement and fitness evaluation together so that we have a strong sense of where you are today. Custom training programs are typically written in four week intervals that will progress, based on your feedback and my observations, to help you develop the strength and movement skill set needed to meet your  health and fitness goals. You might want to gain strength, develop endurance, hike a mountain, touch your toes or just be better able to go about your daily tasks a little easier. Everyone's goal is different, your training should be too.


At Be Awesome Be Strong we strive to create a welcoming inclusive uplifting space for people of all  genders, sexuality, sizes, age, ethnicity or ability. We currently offer training and small classes in out GarageGym in Amherst, MA and at the Sattva Center for Archery in Florence, MA.

Some of the ways we work towards being inclusive and uplifting are:

  • We will celebrate your accomplishments whether you lift 10lbs or 300lbs, do your first pull up or simply move easier that day. We strive to build community where each persons goals can be individual and valued.

  • Training spaces without built in mirrors. We have portable mirrors if you would like to use one to see your form during a movement.

  • A minimal flexible dress code based on safety. For Be Awesome events we ask that everyone wear clothes they can comfortably move in and that won't get caught on equipment. When only Be Awesome groups are training you can lift in socks or bare feet but for things like circuits or functional movements wear athletic shoes for your own general safety. Again for safety - no flip flops, slides, open toe shoes or street shoes. During small group training or one on one sessions a sports bra is fine. When archery activities for the Sattva Center are also happening please wear a shirt and shoes. Shorts are fine, comfortable pants are fine, an athletic skirt is fine, your kilt is fine.... just wear bottoms. We ask that you avoid T-shirts with graphics or text that are non-inclusive and for classes or during shared time with the archery range that you keep things family friendly. Not sure about something, just ask.

  • We do not have showers or locker rooms. Our space has one single gender neutral bathroom.

  • Training spaces that can be moved around. Do you need to shift some equipment to meet your physical needs? Need a chair nearby? Our space and our classes have options for modifications.

  • Our Florence, MA host facility, the Sattva Center for Archery, is wheelchair accessible, has parking available, and bike parking is available. This location is a 10 minute walk from the PVTA R44 Florence Center bus stop.

  • The Be Awesome Strength Team participates several times a year in regional powerlifting meets. Our team chooses meets and federations that strive to be inclusive of  LGBTQ+ athletes.
