Primal Conditioning Fitness Studio invigorates tired bodies and minds while bringing a fresh outlook to fitness.
Our fitness studio cannot be compared to a traditional gym. We pride ourselves on the exact opposite. At Primal Conditioning, you will never experience embarrassing locker rooms or crowded equipment because when you are here, it is only you and your trainer. Privacy and personalization are of utmost importance to us.
The fitness studio is your personal gym while you are here.
I have cultivated my passion into my career. In 2012 I earned my MS in performance enhancement and injury prevention through U Penn. I am a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer, and an NASM performance Enhancement Specialist. I am always learning and always incorporating new fitness ideas into my clients workouts as well as my own. I train clients privately and in group settings at the fitness studio in Keene, New Hampshire, as well as virtually with online tools.
I have been active since I was very young, with a background in dance and gymnastics, and a life long interest in whole food nutrition. Now I spend my time being active by hiking man of Cheshire Counties trails, swimming, and riding dirt bikes. I eat a natural diet, emphasizing lean proteins, vegetables, nuts, organic dairy, some fruits, and of course coffee. No gluten or soy for me! Practicing what I preach, I regularly lift heavy things, take long, enjoyable walks and hikes, relax with yoga or other flexibility work and get my heart rate up often.
Go Beyond the Dumbbell
We specialize in functional fitness training using a variety of tools. Go beyond the dumbbell or the treadmill – here you’ll be picking up loaded barbells, swinging kettle-bells, slamming balls, and using gymnastics rings to achieve a new level of physical and mental conditioning. But don’t worry, we are going to walk you through every step.
Primal Conditioning’s programs are based with total body conditioning in mind to increase vitality, metabolic process, and overall functional strength. The focus is on developing strength, enhancing balance, flexibility, and conditioning. Above all, an increased quality of life for all participants is the true goal. Primal Conditioning teaches you to reach your own potentials in fitness, health, and life.
At our core, we train individuals on a long-term, intimate basis and act as their primary hub for private personal training and multi-dimensional holistic wellness.
Nurture Your Body
We also nurture your body by sharing the science-based nutritional advise and advocate a holistic approach that goes beyond a one hour workout. Primal Conditioning recommends only tested weight loss methods, safe strength training routines, organic and pure supplements. You will not find “fad” juice cleanse kits, gimmicky machinery or staff trying to shove unneeded powders at you to make a commission.

Absolutely not! That is what Primal Conditioning is for! Each program is made for the individual and takes into account many health variables to get you into the shape you desire, no matter your starting point.
Depending on your Fitness Plan:
One-on-one in person exercise sessions take place in the private fitness studio located at 28 Park Ave (Suite 102) in Keene. Weather permitting, workouts may be done out doors in the open space behind the studio.
Online Training allows you to workout where you’re most comfortable, at home or at a gym, when it’s convenient for you!
I have a bachelors in exercise science from Keene State College and a masters degree in performance enhancement and injury prevention. I have a lifetime certification from the National Association of Sports Medicine (NASM) and a Level 1 Crossfit certification.
The barbell will soon become an extension of your body. Total body, demanding movements such as deadlifts, various squats and overhead exercises will be benchmarks in your primal conditioning program. Your body-weight and kettlebells will also be used on a nearly daily basis. Other tools such as dumbbells, resistance bands, stability balls, medicine balls and gymnastics rings will also be used.
Please use clean sneakers when exercising in the studio, although for most exercises, bare feet are encouraged if it is comfortable for you. You can bring any items you might need such as a water bottle (highly recommended), lifting gloves, and a towel. Bringing a snack for after the workout may be helpful.
A workout, from the warm-up to the cool down, typically takes around 60 minutes. I do not plan your workout with a time limit in mind, you are here to get things done! Therefore some workouts may be completed in as little as 40 minutes, and some may last up to an hour and fifteen minutes. Please let me know if you have any time constraints before we begin our session.
This question is largely up to you. Working out 4 times per week will not give you any more benefit than working out 2 times per week if you cannot commit to working out all 4 days. Be realistic about your schedule and about your energy levels. Your fitness goals will also be a deciding factor in this question. Primal Conditioning fitness programs can be adapted to fit in as little as one workout in the studio and one workout that you complete on your own. It is not uncommon for beginners to ‘jump start’ their programs with additional sessions.
A monthly plan will be decided upon by you and your trainer, so this answer will vary. Base pricing starts at $45 per private session, or $200-$500 per month depending on your program. If cost is an issue, please discuss this with your trainer. The online training membership is just $39 per month!
