Hello, my name is Jane and I am here to help adults and seniors who want to get "in shape" safely.
As a certified personal trainer, corrective exercise specialist and meditation instructor I can help you to get fit and toned, so we can together be on a solid path towards a healthy, strong and functional body including relaxation techniques to calm down body and mind if you wish.
If you suffer from chronic pain e.g. like back,neck, knee or, movement limitation or postural issues, we can find the underlying causes. When I started my personal training career a decade ago many clients (icnluding myself and family members) experienced movement limitations due to a tight body and/or aches and pains like back, knee, shoulder or neck pain. I had no choice and started to study and leaned the underlying causes of those aches and pains of a body out of alignement and balance. I am also a life long student of the Alexander Technique, the study of the body in motion and how to move the body without this excess tension we all carry around that leads to stiffnesses and limitations sooner or later.
If this is your first virtual session, I will guide you through the process, it will be easier than you think.
I am here to serve you and I look forward to meeting you! Stay safe and well!
Your personal trainer,
My favorite client story
My client Barbara texted me one day and told me:
Thank you so much, Jane. The Publix bagger was so surprised that I carried a 5 gallon container of drinking water to the checkout, and then to the parking lot :)
(Please note that this very nice senior lady could hardly walk or move 2 years before)
Another client improved his golf swing as his whole body felt looser and more dynamic PLUS his knee pain was gone after 4 months of training with customized easy corrective exercises “homework”.
A 69 year old client said her panic attacks calmed down to very light anxieties that she learned to control. I was so happy I could and still help her through effective meditation techniques.
My favorite exercise
The exercise you actually do:)
My favorite quote
“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now”
My training philosophy
Less pain more gain. Behind each movement and exercise is a purpose.

I loved the way you did it - upright movement when you started, the best meditation, and gentle wake up exercises to finish. i felt great afterward.
I was recommended the Biomechanics Method for my lower back pain issues and it took a few sessions with everyday homework before I noticed a subtle but very noticeable difference.
A text msg from a client with arthritis: Thank you so much, Jane. The Publix bagger was so surprised that I carried a 5 gallon container of drinking water to the checkout, and then to the parking lot.
This Cognitive Anatomy work really helps me with my spasms in my upper back. They already started to relax when you were working on the legs. Thank you so much.
I have been training with Jane Waldman for over six months and she is exceptionally good. Jane has developed a comprehensive long term plan for my sessions. This involves strength training, stretching, balance, nutrition, and my general well-being. Jane has also advised me on how best to improve myself outside our individual sessions. Since working with Jane I physically feel much better and motivated to keep improving. In addition, and with some dietary changes, I have lost 36 lbs. over this period. I could not recommend Jane Waldman more highly.
