Geoffrey Landry, Clarke Personal Trainer
"Since the age of two when my dad introduced me to a bat and ball, I have been playing baseball. I am currently training with the team at Cal State San Marcos and hope to be playing in the 2011 season. I also played football in high school and understand the physical strain sports can place on the body and how important it is to keep it strong and balanced. I have had my share of injuries and have experienced many different forms of physical therapy and personal training."
Geoffrey is working on his degree in Kinesiology and plans to attend graduate school to get his Masters in Physical Therapy. He then hopes to work in a clinic or start his own physical therapy business. He also plans on getting a Doctorate at some point in the future.
"Exercise is to gain strength physically and mentally. Gaining strength physically is the easy part. Lifting, building muscle, endurance, and strength all come naturally. The hard part is motivating oneself to get in the gym. Exercise not only strengthens the body but also strengthens the mind."
Dylan Wiltsey, Clarke Personal Trainer
In Dylan's personal exercise routine, he focuses mainly on improving explosiveness and core work. Although he trains differently with every client to fit their personal goals, concepts from his own workouts definitely have influence. Therefore, improving core strength is a fundamental strategy in the routines he develops for clients.
Dylan has played soccer all h is life, has years of experience in martial arts, and has been developing his own workout routines since he was 15. He continued to pursue fitness and received his personal trainer certification in 2009 through the National Exercise Trainers Association. He also plans on getting an additional certification later this summer.
Dylan is CPR certified, NETA certified, and a Kinesiology major with a focus in Exercise Science.
"Do or do not... there is no try."
AJ Kirkpatrick, Clarke Personal Trainer
I have been an employee at the Clarke since August 2010 and have been a member of 24 Hour Fitness since the age of 12. I have always had an interest in fitness training because it makes me feel good.
I have been involved in athletics ever since I can remember whether it was watching or playing. My life has always been revolved around sports, and fitness training is obviously a big part of that. That is where I gained most of my experience originally until entering college where I started obtaining knowledge of the true art of physical fitness. I was so interested in it that even when my friends would ask me for advice and I would enjoy helping them every time.
I am currently a Kinesiology student and I intend to apply and work for a Doctorate in Physical Therapy to eventually become a full time physical therapist. The main reason is I just truly enjoy helping people. Whether it is personal training or physical therapy, as long as I can help people get better, I am doing what I love.
In order to see gains consistency is one of the most important things in my opinion. If you stay consistent and no matter what you do, change will take place.
Andrew Dettelbach, Clarke Personal Trainer
I have been a part of fitness facilities for over six years and have spent that time perfecting my workouts. I have been a part of seven different gyms. Recently, over the last two years, I have spent a great deal of time training others on my free time and helping them to perfect their form in a multitude of exercises. Recently, I spent three months in a rehabilitation/mobility fitness center and have learned a ton about injuries and their treatments.
I have recently become NETA certified. Over the last two years, I have spent a great deal of time training others on my free time and helping them to perfect their form in a multitude of
exercises. I make sure that an exercise is comfortable and fun before I have them continue practicing and performing that workout. Over the last three months, I have spent a large portion of my time in a rehabilitation/mobility fitness center and have learned a ton about
injuries and their treatments.
Currently, I am majoring in Pre-Physical therapy and am hoping to continue on to my doctorate in physical therapy. I may also consider getting my doctorate in research such as exercise physiology or biomechanics. Another option I may consider is becoming a physician. The more classes I take that pertain to information about the human body, the more interested I become in different fields of medical and sciences.
Since the time I found out that a very close loved one in my life became pre-diabetic, I made it my goal to live, eat, and workout as healthy as possible to help better both of our lives. That
being said, I believe that the purpose of exercising consistently is to create a "healthier and happier you." First and foremost, people must come to terms with the fact that it takes time to become healthier. As time goes on, and exercises become more difficult and fun, an individual will feel better about himself or herself both physically and mentally. A toned physique is an added bonus of creating a healthy and fit body.
