Audrey Preston

South & The Summit

Trainer's Level: Advanced

Location(s): South, The Summit

Specialties: Core conditioning. Stability. Triathlon and other endurance racing.

Background: NFPT (National Federation of Professional Trainers) certified.

Experience: I've been a Personal Trainer at The Alaska Club since Summer 2018, and continue serving at the South and Summit Clubs as a Personal Trainer and Fitness Director. I also completed my first 70.3 (Half Iron Distance) Triathlon in June 2019, and hope that it won't be my last!

Philosophy on Exercise: Sometimes you need to slow down to speed up. Our culture values doing and achievement and undervalues rest. Because of this, often we beat ourselves up attempting to make gains and risking injury, when rest will grant our minds and bodies the ability to reap yields from our work. I want to coach people to find the fine balance that their body needs in work, movement, nutrition, and REST to enjoy overall HEALTH. Because health is not just a waist line or a number on a scale, it is also the sum of one's energy and ability to sleep and overall well-being!

Favorite Quote: Strive for PROGRESS, not PERFECTION! Finish Lines, not Finish Times!
