As an intern with ACC Human Performance/Exercise Health Services program, my objective is to help motivate people with an inactive lifestyle to learn the benefits of physical fitness while overcoming everyday barriers; when life gets in the way. Establishing Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time based (SMART) short-term goals of improving and maintaining one or more components of physical fitness will help individuals develop a routine to help them achieve their long-term goals.

Together, we will design and implement an evolving training program specifically targeting your fitness goals.

Kristen VolekKristen Volek, ACSM Certified Personal Trainer

My personal philosophy about physical activity is: I believe that by incorporating a healthy lifestyle consisting of good nutrition and exercise we can improve the performance of the human body.  These simple, yet important, components of wellness can help create a vibrant and long lived life, one of good quality. Together, we need to examine the needs of one and other as well as society to achieve this. Ultimately, each of us must take responsibility for our own health, the health of our families, our society and much more globally.  The small decisions we make on a moment to moment basis affect our health, our resilience and our overall quality of life. 

As an intern with ACC Human Performance/Exercise Health Sciences Program, it is my objective to help individuals discover their goals to achieve ultimate health and wellness.

I am certified with the American College of Sports Medicine as a Personal Trainer. I am also American Red Cross CRP/AED, First Aid and Bloodborne Pathogen certified.
