Personal Trainer Meg Brown
We are proud to announce that Trainer Meghan Brown recently became a member of Strength Collective. She brings a unique range of skills including a background in nursing as well as pre- and post-natal training fitness certifications. She has a great enthusiasm to her practice. And let’s be clear, if you’re a trainer and you don’t have some kind of enthusiasm for your work, maybe you should rethink this career. Meg believes progress is ALWAYS possible, no matter your age or ability.
Fitness for Life
In Meg’s words…
I want my clients to have the confidence to run up 3 flights of stairs without getting winded. To play a fast game of tag with their kids without blowing a knee. To jump rope without a leaky pelvic floor. Or maybe to finally be able to do a perfect pushup from the floor! With focus and guidance, all of these things are within reach.
Growing up in an active family, exercise was just something you DID. I know this is not the case for everyone, and life often gets in the way of good intentions. I will work with you to find a way to integrate more activity and movement into your daily life.
Before shifting my focus to fitness, I was an oncology nurse for 9 years. This background helps me understand the difficulties of living with chronic disease, and how to continue to be active through treatment.
Also, as a mom to 3, I understand the demands motherhood places on the body and the mind, and I specialize in helping women make the transition from pre-natal to postpartum and beyond. Once postpartum, you’re always postpartum, so this includes those who had babies long ago! My small groups are a safe place for women to bond, to push each other and to discover their true strength.
My favorite modalities are strength training and yoga, but I also enjoy running, cross-country skiing, cycling and Crossfit. I was a member of the UW-Madison rowing team in college, so get ready for some rowing intervals!
