"Never having worked with a personal trainer before, I didn?t know what to expect but I knew I didn?t want a ?boot camp/drill
? type of trainer who would intimidate me. I wanted to be inspired, get a good workout appropriate for ...more my age and fitness level, and in order to stay motivated, I wanted it to be fun.
most definitely provides all that and more.
She is friendly, relaxed, and really knows what she is doing. She always arrives on time for each training session (at my home ? how convenient is that!) and comes fully prepared with a workout that has tons of variety. Never with the same exercises from one session to the next, she includes a good warm-up at the beginning and helps me stretch at the end of the session so I am never stiff or sore in the days following a workout. The exercises are strenuous and, although I am exhausted at the end of a session, I am also energized and motivated.
is always interested in how I am doing with my weight loss and gives me helpful hints when I reach difficult plateaus. As a consequence, since starting my training sessions with her (approximately 4 months ago now), I?ve lost weight, my eating habits have changed dramatically, and I am becoming more confident and comfortable with my body.
Although I would benefit from weekly training sessions with
, my budget only allows for once every two weeks. I believe her hourly rate is appropriate to the service she provides, and I know every dollar I spend on my training with her is money well spent. In fact, after about the fourth check I had written to
at the end of a training session, I discovered I was entering those amounts in my checkbook
as credits rather than debits. A funny little Freudian slip, and not so good when it comes to balancing the checkbook, but very indicative of the value I place on my training sessions with
. I recommend her without hesitation.

"I wasn't expecting a whole lot. Took the $20/month black card deal. Now my wife and I go about three times a week. It's clean, it's run professionally, and its never crowded. We both swear it wasa great deal. She comes free with my black ...more card, and their locker room and showers are clean. The machines are all working, and the staff is very helpful. The owners there about once a week and he talks to everybody and makes sure they try all the equipment and
any questions you have. "

"I had been having problems with my foot ever since prior incident that resulted in PAIN. I was in mortal pain and didn't know what to do. About that same time I was told that I had plantar fasciitis. My friend did too. She went in and had surgery on her heel. I opted not to, and continued gimping along. I was faithfully wearing a brace at ...more night that was supposed to help. It did not. The physical therapy I had tried hadn't yielded any lasting results either. My family and I were downtown and saw the ROSBS stretch therapy booth, particularly the sign, which read, "Tell me what hurts". After that first visit, I returned every week for a month. At the end of the first treatment I noticed such improvement. By the end of the first month, I KNEW I had made the right choice not having the surgery. My friend is still in flat shoes….Not me! I'm wearing all my favorites. NO more pain at all.
, zero, zilch!! I'm so thankful for
