Hi, my name is Tammy Eaton and I have been a personal trainer in Springfield since 1996. I grew up in Gravette, Arkansas and played basketball throughout my college career before graduating in 1994 from the College of the Ozarks in Branson, Missouri.
I went to the Cooper Institute for Aerobic Research in Dallas, Texas while still in college and earned my Personal Fitness Specialist (PFS) certificate.
In 1998 I became certified through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). The NSCA is one of the most respected and recognized certifying agencies for Personal Trainers in the United States. Among the high standards required for this certification, continuing education units are required each year to remain certified.
I have trained kids as young as 8 and big kids as old as 94. I feel like I have a particular niche with the older population. Even as a child I always loved spending time with my grandparents and have become quite close to many clients through my years of training. I have seen many of my older clients pass away knowing that I improved their quality of life during their last years; that is rewarding to me.
