Yvette’s motto is “Life is short – make it fun!” Whether it is corrective exercise, competitive sports or an overall fitness program, her knowledge and experience will provide you with a safe, fun program while meeting your personal goals.
Yvette is an ACE Certified Personal Trainer, Yoga Fit Certified Instructor and Keiser Cycling Certified Instructor with a Kinesiology/Health Promotion degree from Boise State University. Since 1984, she has taught everything from ski conditioning to gentle yoga, all forms of dance (but just watch her do hip hop), step, high impact aerobics, and foam roller/sport stretch. Yvette’s enthusiasm and knack for teaching proper motor development and technical movement has made her a highly regarded trainer for high school and college athletes.
Besides Yvette’s smile and consistent encouragement, one of her strongest assets is her wisdom regarding sports injuries. She works closely with athletic trainers, physical therapists and physicians. She has an ongoing curiosity about the body and how to work with pre- and post- rehab clients.
Yvette is the 2008 NGA Northwest Natural Masters Figure Champion and has trained several medalists in the field. As a competitive cheerleader, gymnast and track athlete, she ‘amped’ up her interest in running and has teamed up with a group of friends to win the Masters Division of the Sawtooth Relays seven times.
If she isn’t cheering you on in the gym, you’ll find her hiking and camping with husband, Dave, and her crazy dogs.
