Great 1st session with Val! She knows my goals and is very accommodating. I was nervous at first but she really made things comfortable! Definitely hard work ahead for sure but i’m looking forward to working with her!
I have a back injury and so losing weight has been hard for me. Valerie waa great about giving me exercises that would strengthen the muscles in my back without giving me pain that I had experienced when working with the personal trainer at my gym. She made a plan for exercises, cardio that was easy on my back, and an easy diet to follow to get me on track. I would definitely would recommend.
Valerie really listens and makes the effort to give me exactly what I need. She cares about her clients and their success! Thank you Valerie!
The expertise and guidance she’s provided through my strength training sessions have been amazing. Her consistent updates and redesigning of my sessions keeps me progressing consistently. The results were faster than expected.
Valerie is a true professional who works with you to understand your pain points and what you want to achieve out of the program. She explains each exercise thoroughly, the impact on the going to make and the “why” Behind doing it, and the result I can expect out of the workout. She is working with me through some of my weak spots to slowly and steadily build strength.
Valerie is awesome! She is very understanding and flexible with her schedule. She is supportive and has helped me tremendously with weight loss and muscle gain, as well as being a great friend! Thank you Valerie!
I’ve discovered through Valerie that I actually love lifting weights. I go home sweaty and exhausted but feeling great. I’m definitely seeing and feeling results from the work outs I do with her. Typically I hate running but she makes me run a little each time I see her and it’s gotten much more tolerable. It’s so much easier to go on runs on my own time now.
