If you haven't noticed I really hate slight pushing but what a hell of a way to end a workout
Nothing like sled pushes to finish off the workout.
Working with Cierra for almost 3 years, Jon and I both feel that our strength and agility have improved significantly. We are both over 70 and she knows what we need and how to motivate and help us safely gain confidence and skill. We tease her about elder abuse but she is the best thing we have done for ourselves to stay healthy and active going forward. We love her.

All of my clients no matter their age, abilities, or goals learn how to properly hinge. It is so important in every day life and in the gym to learn to hinge. Here is a client who is in their 70’s performing an amazing hinge. We do this to help strengthen his back, hips, and knees and to teach him proper movement patterns!

Does your back hurt when you hinge? Message me and I can coach you into proper body mechanics for a hinge.

Tell me (show me) you have long hair without telling me you have long hair.

Some people like to be smacked on their shoulders, or on their thighs or on their butts before they lift.
I rely on my hair to get me ready for my lift by smacking me right in the face. And this is why I usually have a big Trunchbull bun on top of my head when I work out.

Happy Birthday to the strongest ‘old dude’ I know!
Love you so much! Thank you for loving me and mom and being the best strongman training partner out there!


No matter your age, no matter your fitness level, no matter your goals, or lifestyle, everyone should know how to hip hinge!!

This very basic foundation movement is so important for your every day life. While it is basic, it can be difficult to learn how to do correctly. And practice makes perfect!

The hip hinge is used for picking things up off the ground, picking up your kid or a grandkid, bending over to change out the dryer or to put dishes in the dishwasher, and so much more!

I will be doing a video soon with instructions and cues on how to best perform this movement!

Yet again my testimonial Tuesday falls on a Wednesday LOL.

‘The best personal trainer I have trained with. She listens to what you really want to get out of the workout. Will push you and motivate you at the same time. She is very knowledgeable on what she's doing. Personalizes workouts and food plans just for you. One of the best people I know. Caring and smart. You will by far gain knowledge and insight for the workout that makes you feel the best.’



Just posted a new YouTube video on neck warm-ups and neck stretches! The link is in my bio if you want to check it out! Thank you everyone for always supporting me and liking and commenting and sharing all of my content. I work hard to create it for you guys and I’m so happy that it’s helped so many of you so far!!!


Hello everyone!

’After injuring my back years ago trying to squat heavy I thought squats were no longer a exercise I could preform. Each time I attempted to squat my back would seize up and I’d have to head home. This inevitably discouraged me from evening exercising all together. Starting with Cierra she listened to what happen and took that into account with developing me a training program. She started me with the leg press machine and slowly progressed me into a full squat. Now doing the squat was difficult for 2 reason, 1. I didn’t want my back to seize up and feel pain and 2. She only wanted me to squat the bar with 10lbs on each side. Needless to say my ego was not happy. However she explained how we are starting to light to get the body prepared to have a load on its back and work on proper squat mechanics. Taking these foundational steps have progressed me into being comfortable squatting and squatting heavy with weights over 300+, which I though I could never do. I tell this story because she heard my issue, took that into account and developed a training program that worked specifically for me. Not only have I been able to drop weight and increase endurance, I’ve now been able to do exercises of my choice with no issues and have seen great improvements with my overall health. So if you were looking for a well educated trainer that will push to improve yourself I have no hesitations in recommending you contacting Cierra.’

I have been training with Cierra for over 4 months now, she's helping me achieve my goal in transitioning into a power lifter. She is one of the most meticulous, organized and thorough trainers I have ever trained with. She pushes me every week to achieve my goal and knows how to set limits. I feel as though she is extremely knowledgeable in kinesthetic health and functionality within each work out. I look forward to the work outs she puts in front of me. I highly recommend her to anyone who has goals to be reached because she will get you there. Thanks Cierra!!!
