About Fluidly Moving Body Works and Anita Hoy...
I have been a personal trainer in central Vermont since 1991. It has been my greatest pleasure to help many people identify and achieve their health and fitness goals. My passion for fitness grew out of a sense of adventure, the wonders of the outdoors, and a desire to be a healthy role model as a single parent to three young children. From those early days, I made small, persistent changes in the kinds of food I ate and prepared for my children, and I made outdoor fun and adventure a routine part of our family time. I soon realized these changes and activities led to the foundation of healthy living and I was excited to share what I was learning with other people.
By the time my children were teenagers, we were backpacking, bicycling, and pounding the pavement on long distance runs. During that time, I completed a Master’s Degree in Fitness Education and Health Psychology at Norwich University.
In 2002, I began offering facilitated stretching and massage to clients who were suffering from a range of aches and pains and illnesses, even including diabetes. Diabetic neuropathy is a very painful symptom of diabetes and I noticed that a client suffering from this sometimes debilitating symptom improved as I came up with a more hands on approach to their treatment regimen. Working with this client led me to complete a 3 year certification program in Integrated Bodywork and Acupressure Massage.
As the coach and therapist I can provide the tools you need for weight management, strength training and endurance programs as well as work with mobility, overuse issues and chronic pain. Heart, mind, body and spirit. I view your physical well-being as a holistic process, no one part or element of your being is separate from other. It is my belief that focusing on all four of these essential parts of us allow us to attain our highest level of functioning, whether we are 20, 80 or older.
This philosophy is why I started Fluidly Moving Body Works in 2011. I gave my business this name because it fits my belief about what it takes to develop a healthy mind and body. Over 30 years of experience as a fitness trainer and massage therapist has brought me to the understanding that only fluidity of thought and action can help us achieve our fitness goals and increased personal power. I completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in Transpersonal Psychology, Burlington College, VT. In 1998, I completed Master of Arts degree in Fitness Education and Health Psychology, Norwich University, VT in 2002.
