Retrain. Rebuild. Be Active.
Because fitness is an exciting, life-long journey. Sometimes we have a setback and that’s ok. But it doesn’t have to end there!
Each one of our muscles has a specific job for which they are designed. Unfortunately, with improper movement, many other muscles try to assist whether they were designed to or not because the brain is programmed to just get the job done. Poor movement patterns develop causing muscle imbalances. They could be caused by a sport, exercising incorrectly, work, an illness or injury. Whatever the cause, we need to retrain these muscles to do their primary job and rebuild them so they have what it takes to focus on only that. Continuing to move incorrectly could lead to limited mobility, bad posture, pain or injury. In short, it’ll put your adventure on hold.
What’s the process?
Get the right muscles to activate at the right time
When you want to do something, you’re not going to think of every movement you have to make to get it done. When you want to drink you don’t think, ok, now I will lift my arm, unbend my elbow, open up my fingers, wrap them around the cup… you get the idea. Muscles firing when completing a task is more subconscious. We need to retrain the brain to set neural pathways that will make the correct muscles kick in at the right time.
Fix muscle imbalances
Muscle imbalances are formed when our brain repeatedly tells the wrong muscles to move. That means some muscles are much stronger than their opposing muscles. It could be seen in the form of limited mobility, bad posture, or pain. With the correct exercises here and there, we’ll rebuild these muscles to get them balanced and doing their primary job.
Go on your adventure.
Be confident that your body will perform because now you are ready. You earned it. Safely go hiking, biking, or kayaking. Have a great time!
Small Group Personal Training
-let’s get to work-
Because it’s just more fun together!
Programs are offered in the form of Small Group Personal Training. Don’t worry, groups are small enough for you to get the personalized attention you need. Plus, if an exercise is not right for you, I will switch it out for one that is. So that means that you will not have to do an exercise just because everyone else is. In fact, everyone in the group is given a separate consultation and assessment before we begin so they will have their own customizations as well.

Cardiorespiratory Training will get you breathing better. Important stuff. Just like with other types of exercise, it has to be progressive. Train at the level of your body – even if it’s just breathing exercises – and progress or even regress as needed. And remember: You don’t have to be stuck on a boring treadmill to do it!! Let’s get out and play!

Nice to meet you!
I am Fatmah, Certified Personal Trainer for over 15 years. I founded OOMIE Fitness – a Personal Training Studio for Women – back in 2005 when I got tired of sitting so much because of my tech career! My career change led me to earn a Personal Training Certification with a specialty in Corrective Exercise to get my butt and yours up and moving!
My passion led me to focus on Movement Retraining to get the body properly stacked and moving optimally. Sometimes we need to pause and rewind to get ourselves back to moving correctly and that’s ok. That’s what I’m here to help you with!
Rebuild your foundation!
“We have been given a wonderful gift in the human body. Take care of it.”
Why does correct posture matter?
When your body is properly stacked, forces placed on it are distributed through your body in a way that won’t put too much pressure on a single joint. This keeps the body moving optimally and pain/injury free.
Ever found yourself huffing and puffing after walking up a bunch of stairs?
That’s because your heart is not used to that much work. If you haven’t being doing cardio that’s the right intensity or if you are just getting back from an injury or illness, you’ll have to train your heart to pump the right amount of oxygen-rich blood throughout your body.
Your core is your foundation
The core muscles aren’t just abs as we have been conditioned to believe. Just because someone has a “six-pack” does not mean they have a strong and stable core. Core stability relies heavily on training the muscles of the back, glutes and hips in addition to the abs.
Exercise destroys the body
Giving your body time to recover between workouts will allow it to grow stronger so you could see the results of your hard work. But recovery doesn’t mean sitting watching TV all day.
