A southern transplant and musical theater enthusiast, Battles turned her attention from the bright lights of Broadway to the Upper West Side where she couldn’t be more thrilled to be part of the GRFP family. Battles came to personal training after rehabilitating from a dance related injury. She saw firsthand how difficult and frustrating it was to battle back (no pun intended!) and regain her previous level of fitness, and she wanted to dedicate herself to help others do the same and to achieve their own health / fitness related goals. Battles loves functional training and incorporating methodologies from her Pilates, Yoga, and Dance background. Her certifications include NCSF, Zumba, 30-60-90, and BarreBod.
