Who is Frankie Painter Fitness?

A little about me...

I’m an exercise enthusiast, avid reader and proud mom of two amazing teenage boys.  I became a Personal Trainer in 2005 and began teaching Group Exercise in 2007.  I am certified by the American Council on Exercise as a Personal Trainer and Health Coach.  I’ve also received certifications in Pre/Post Natal Fitness and Exercise for Cancer Survivors.  I’m a runner, triathlete, unicyclist and master pogo stick bouncer!

My thoughts on things...

My belief is that everyone can achieve a healthy lifestyle by making small, manageable changes that over time create newer, healthier, fitness and nutrition habits.  Movement should be fun, food should be delicious, and attitudes should be positive!
