We can make almost any space work!
I love to meet your pets and am not the least bit concerned about how messy your space may be at the moment.
Working with me one on one is a highly personalized experience that meets you where you are. Together we create a strength program that feels good and builds your strength and stamina so you can do the activities that bring you pleasure.
“Gillian prepared exercises designed around my desires for strength training and physical condition with lots of one on one ‘trying out’ of different exercises until we had the routines perfected. If I had a question which she could not immediately answer, the next time I was there, she had the issue very well researched. I am very pleased with the progress I’ve made! And it was great fun working with her, not a dreaded ‘have to’.” ~ Paula Peek
“I work behind a computer all day and due to some minor injuries had a really hard time motivating myself to get moving again. Every time I wanted to start working out again, I would push way too hard and aggravate my injury, and I could never motivate to do lighter exercise since it seemed too boring. Gillian really helped me expand my repertoire of exercises and motivated me to take reasonable, gradual steps so I didn’t push myself too hard. Having someone map out an exercise plan and hold me accountable to it was the only way I was going to get my body moving again, and now I’m in a regular habit of exercise every day. Thank you Gillian!” ~Audrey
Are you ready to build strength, endurance and health, YOUR way?
A 45 minute session is $50 and a 20 min. session is $25. I usually recommend starting with a few 45 min. sessions so we can be thorough. Package pricing is available.
To get started or ask any questions e-mail me: Gillian@mindfullyactive.com or click here to schedule a Tea and Exploration call! (Also: see FAQ below for more info). My goal with these calls is not to convince you to work with me but to be sure you have all the information you need to make the right decision for you!
I look forward to meeting you and helping you build feel good strength and ease of movement!

Q. I’m looking for a HAES® friendly personal trainer. Are you familiar with HAES®?
A. YES! I am a Health At Every Size® personal trainer and ASDAH member. I’ve signed the pledge here. (Check out the pledge link if you are unfamiliar with HAES® and want to learn more.) If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to reach out. HAES® can be a confusing concept and sometimes people put it into practice in slightly different ways. I’m happy to talk with you about how it affects my training.
Q. What equipment do I need to buy?
A. I will give suggestions for a variety of home exercise equipment that can be very helpful and make things more efficient and fun! But there is no requirement to buy anything.
Q. How much time will I need to commit to exercise outside of our sessions?
A. Exercise commitment outside of our sessions will vary based on YOU. I find that doing at least a little each day (even just a few minutes) really pays off. I’ll give you guidance for however long works best for you, be it 5 or 60 minutes.
Q. None of the times for the Tea and Exploration call work for me?
A. Send me an e-mail (Gillian@mindfullyactive.com) and let me know what time zone you’re in and what times will work! I’ll get back to you ASAP and let you know if we can work something out 🙂
Q. Can I do this with a friend?
A. Yes! A 45 min. session is $60 for 2 people that are needing roughly the same type of exercises. Package pricing available.
