Teri has experienced the many changes the exercise industry has gone through but can attest to the fact that commitment to an active lifestyle and good nutritional choices are the keys to better health! A “just do it” attitude will get positive results, as one keeps committed to their physical and emotional wellness. “I really enjoy what I do, helping people improve their life by simply teaching them a new exercise or guiding them through a lifestyle change. I could not think of a better career ” says Teri.
Teri believes a successful fitness center provides a positive environment for exercise and wellness. Learning the proper “how to” in exercise and understanding the “why” we do exercise makes it easier to accept what needs to be done to achieve each persons goals. These proven ideas mixed with fun and a positive outlook is what the CVAC fitness center staff and programs are all about.
Teri lives in the Chagrin Valley with her husband Leo and their three active boys: Alex, Nicholas, and Eric.
