OUR TEAM

Shirley Van Egmond RHN, PT, Co-Owner

It seems like only yesterday, at my 6-week checkup after my son was born, that my doctor told me that I would likely be that weight the rest of my life.

I remember thinking, “HOLY CRAP that is not what I want!” I refused to believe this was the only road ahead of me, and right there started my journey to develop a healthy, strong and lean body for myself.

I believe everyone desires to be healthy, strong and energetic every day. As a certified Personal Trainer and Registered Holistic Nutritionist, I have used my knowledge and developed strategies that I share with clients, assisting them to achieve their own lean, strong, healthy and feminine body, all while valuing the limited time in their busy life.

 

 

 

Robert Apfelbeck PT, Co-Owner

I was blessed to grow up surrounded by a big family, and all the “happy mess” that goes along with that. I have and continue to watch my parents age and sadly decline due to lack of movement and continued exercise. After seeing what happens to us if we are sedentary I have dedicated years to learning the science and theory behind strength, In 2008 I completed my personal training certifications and now specialize in strength and rehab here at LiV.

I have clients that are very healthy… I also have clients rehabbing from hip replacements and steel rods, and even improving mobility and core strength with a very fun client with Cerebral Palsy.

If you’re looking to get a bit stronger and want stairs, doors and falling to not concern you any longer, you’re in luck because that’s my specialty.
