Holly Holmes, MA
Holly is originally from Fort Payne, AL. She is a graduate of the University of Alabama and has a Bachelor’s degree in Sports and Fitness Management and a Master’s degree in Human Performance & Exercise Physiology. During her time at UA, she realized the importance and need of Exercise Physiologists in the healthcare world. She decided that it was her responsibility to educate others on the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise and instructing them on the proper and safe ways to do so. Working side by side a well-trained Physical Therapist was the perfect fit to accomplish this vision.
In 1999, Holly became a Certified Personal Trainer by the American Council on Exercise. In order to maintain this certification, Holly completes many hours of continuing education to stay abreast of the latest trends in physical fitness, nutrition, and wellness. Holly and her staff provide clients with many Personal Training options to satisfy each person’s individual goals, ranging from monthly “check-ups” to a more structured program consisting of ongoing weekly personal training appointments.
Holly’s philosophy is to treat each patient and every Personal Training client like she would want to be treated-with respect, dignity, and compassion. She teaches the importance of making a commitment to a healthy lifestyle instead of buying into the “quick fixes. “ Being “fit” isn’t about being perfect, but being healthy! “When people start to see value in exercise is when I find my job most rewarding.”
-You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink. Meaning: You can give someone an opportunity, but you can’t force him to take advantage of it. My goal is to get patients and clients to “drink the water” and take advantage of Trinity’s knowledge, to reap the benefits of making healthy choices and being physically active.
