VELMA MAYNARD-JACOBS

A personal trainer since 2009, Velma is AFAA-certified and specializes in injury rehabilitation. She fell in love with training after sustaining an injury and finding that only physical therapy gave her a head start towards recovery. Now, she uses her functional movement specialist (FMS) certification to help runners, athletes and the senior population build mobility, strength and flexibility. In her mind/body approach to training, she pushes clients to go just outside their comfort zones. Velma believes that when you address the imbalances in your physical and emotional health, you're on the path to overall wellness.
