Give the gift of health and wellness
The holidays are here! But, 2020 has not been a normal year and for many, it will continue to be that way for months to come. With new therapeutics and at least three different potential vaccines, there is more to be positive about as we approach 2021. However, let’s not forget the most powerful tool we have available to combat any illness — our immune system. Having a healthy and robust immune system is a result of eating properly, exercising and making sure to get plenty of vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin D. Every doctor in the world will tell you that overall health and wellness is more than just about weight loss or muscle gain. It is truly a way to re-envision your journey toward health and wellness.
For the holidays, consider buying a gift certificate to help motivate that special person. Remember, this is not a “weight loss” program. Working with me is about a holistic view of the entire health and wellness profile. I will take the time to assess current fitness levels and dietary intake and then customize a plan. There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach. Each person is unique and deserves the special attention that a personal trainer can give. I want to keep each person safe, but moving forward toward their goals of becoming a healthier and happier person.
Need a little more incentive? For every 10 sessions purchased, I will add a bonus session at no extra cost. And, if you want to really make it interesting, ask me about my discounts for couples working out together!

Why I became a Personal Trainer
Living in Cartersville in NW Georgia, hardly a week goes by where I don’t hear about the fitness level of so many Americans. It’s never good news. We hear ad nauseam reports about sitting for too long, not moving enough, eating the wrong foods and the need to exercise more. But, how does the average American, sitting in commuter traffic for sometimes two to three hours a day, along with 8-9 hours at a desk, find the time to “move more”? Add to that mix life with a spouse (or significant other), children, pets, etc… and by the time you have a moment to yourself, the last thing you feel like doing is moving!
I was in that exact same predicament just a few years ago. I was adding weight, losing muscle tone, eating poorly and feeling my energy levels slipping with each passing month. I tried to find a personal trainer, but everywhere I turned, I had to pick from either a chiseled, muscle-bound male or a petite, female swimsuit competitor. Admittedly, I was jealous of their bodies and how they had sculpted themselves into paragons of fitness, but I knew that wasn’t going to be my path. I needed a realistic plan for results that would put me back to a healthy weight, give me additional muscle tone and promote a healthy heart with attainable cardio workouts. I needed to find someone, well, like me, only IN SHAPE! It was time to take a leap of faith.
Taking the next leap, are you ready?
While getting my personal trainer certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine, I added the diet and nutrition modules to provide me with a well-rounded approach to health and fitness. I had to become my own personal trainer to get the results I wanted.
I decided a career change was in order. After all, I could not be the only one juggling family, career and extracurricular activities. With that, SJD Health and Fitness became a reality here in NW Georgia. It is my goal to take all I have learned and help others achieve their own goals for personal health and fitness. What’s more, my backstory is the same as so many others and I hope it can be the inspiration you need to find that path to a better you.
SJD Health and Fitness operates in Cartersville, Georgia, conveniently located to support all of the surrounding communities, including the municipalities of Adairsville, Kingston, Emerson, Euharlee and White within Bartow County. Because of my location, I am also able to serve clients in Cherokee, Cobb, Paulding and Polk counties, which includes the cities of Acworth and Dallas.
