Meet Paula Henry
Paula Henry has over 15 years' experience in the fields of fitness, conditioning, training, and coaching, with certifications in Fitness (ISSA-CFT: Intl. Sports Science Association – Certified Fitness Trainer), Pn1 (Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification), Sport Coaching, USSA (US Sports Academy) Sport Coaching, USA Track & Field, USA Swimming, API-CPX (American Posture Inst. – Certified Posture Expert), and CPR/AED.
Her passion is for helping others learn the needs, strengths, and weaknesses of their physical selves, and guiding them towards an exercise plan of action that will best serve their personal goals as they progress through all stages from youth to ‘young at heart.’ An avid runner, cyclist, and coach, she has participated in (and volunteered and/or officiated for) races throughout New England, including the Big Kahuna — the Boston Marathon.
Her new studio is conveniently located on Rte. 1 in Rowley, MA, near the intersection of Rte. 133, and easily accessible from Interstate I-95. It offers a full range of strength and fitness opportunities, with 2000 sq. ft. of space, an array of state-of-the-art equipment for weight and resistance training, and treadmill, elliptical, cycling, and rowing machines for focus on conditioning and stamina.
Paula’s unique ability to help others internalize fitness training takes advantage of ‘teachable moments’ to foster better understanding of how and why we move and perform as we do, and how best to support, nurture, and rehabilitate the body as we put stress on developing muscles, tendons, and fascia, or recover from injuries and health issues as we age.
A cooperative and consistent partnership on fitness goals leads to the best outcomes.
When Paula was about 27 years old she discovered that she is too young to be so old when her three and a half years old child was running across the parking lot and she couldn't catch up. That’s when she knew that something had to change. That incident started her journey to fitness and being healthy. She changed her diet and did everything. She starved herself skinny. It wasn't really that hard to lose weight because when you're not eating, your body will shed whatever it needs to shed. But what Paula discovered after she had lost a significant amount of weight is that she was still in an unhealthy place because she wasn’t strong enough to move around. Read more...
