Bringing Physical Therapy & Wellness to You!
Growing up as a fit and healthy kid, staying active was easy! It wasn’t until she moved to Minnesota to attend college that Addie began to notice the ill effects of not prioritizing fitness and good nutrition. Her poor nutrition led to severe acne and an immediate 20 pound weight gain. After struggling to maintain a healthy lifestyle, her weight fluctuated over the next 5 years. She lost this weight three times and re-gained it twice before finding a permanent solution through educating herself on the topics.
Addie earned her Bachelor of Art’s degree from Hamline University then continued on to school for personal training and nutrition consulting at the National Personal Training Institute. These skills deeply impacted her own life and helped her build a career she is passionate about! Addie happily offers safe and effective personal training as a nationally certified NPTI – Advanced Certified Personal Trainer. Additionally, her skills include NPTI Nutrition Consultant and a background in Stott Pilates Matwork.
She asks her clients to learn and grow every month, so she strives to do the same. Her hobbies include biking, golfing, making and sending cards. She also enjoys cooking in batches and baking on occasion. She lies in her hammock and reads whenever possible.
