Teri Sumner Smith with Align Chiropractic

My name is Teri Sumner Smith and I hold a certification in both personal training and health coaching, however it has been a journey to get here. After having my third child, feeling tired and lethargic, unable to regain my energy, I became fed up and frustrated. I had tried several different weight loss strategies, by means of both diet and weight loss pills. I tried one so-called natural diet supplement and had a horrifying experience. My health continued to get worse and I ended up putting on 30 pounds. I found that I was taking care of everyone but myself. After 15 years and a major family health crisis, I looked in the mirror and I didn't recognize who I was.

At that point I decided I needed to start taking care of myself in order to take care of the most important people to me. MY FAMILY. I have three amazing children who are my pride and joy.

To deepen my understanding and ability to help my family, I began exploring the Institute of Integrative Nutrition's Holistic Health Coaching Program a few years ago. I studied nutrition and lifestyle factors that could impact my family and how to best support a healthier lifestyle. As a part of this study, I attended The National Personal Training Institute and received my Personal Training Certification.

My mission is to help people develop healthy, lifelong habits in order to sustain long term success. If your goal is weight loss, you will get an action-packed, fat-burning session. Your personalized program will be designed to enhance aerobic endurance, cardiovascular function, muscular strength, overall conditioning, balance and range of motion so that you can maintain optimal wellness.

My personal passions in life include fitness, self-improvement, cooking, tennis, biking, hiking, exploring nature, traveling to new and familiar places, and all kinds of musical and charitable events. Above all else, I enjoy making memories with my kids.
