The primary goal for Chelsea’s programming is to get her clients back to what they love to do- whether that is competitive sports, recreational sports, weekend adventures, 5k’s or being able to get on the floor and play with grandkids. Injury prevention and performance enhancement for everyday life is how we keep our bodies primed for all the activities we love to do!
