MEET BERNIE NEIGHBOR
ACE Certified Personal Trainer
If someone had said “You should do a triathlon,” Bernie would had laughed off that idea prior to 2013.
In 2012 Bernie was trying to find direction and meaning for herself after losing her only sibling to cancer. She was significantly overweight, exercise was not part of her life and she was unhappy with herself. Bernie’s husband Shawn ~ who happens to be her biggest and loudest cheerleader ~ and her meet in middle school and have been married since 1994. They have two beautiful kids, Macy & Davis. As a wife, mom, daughter, sister, and friend, everyone took center stage before herself.
Change had to come.
In September of 2012, the process began. She gathered a team ~ a fitness trainer, a nutritionist, and a counselor ~ to help navigate the journey of weight loss. In seven months she had lost 70 pounds and by the summer she was closing in on almost 100 pounds. Then, in June 2013 Bernie competed and completed her first triathlon, a swim-bike-run sporting event.
Bernie prides herself on providing customized, non-intimidating personal training experiences. While most trainers count and watch as you do the same routine over and over, she actually plans and oversee every client’s customized program. She helps push you a bit further every time. She celebrates milestones, and provides advice for life and fitness outside of the gym.
Fitness results matter to Bernie as much as they do to you. She believes that no matter your weight, health concerns, or commitments, you can achieve your goals. She can help get you there.
