Who I Especially Like Working With


Very simply put, Betsy has been my personal trainer for the last couple of years, and she has given me advice on all aspects of weight gain vs. weight loss and on nutrition, etc.....I am happy to report that I have lost over NINETY (90) POUNDS over the last year-and-a-half, mostly due to Betsy's expertise and gentle guidance....Feel free to check out my before & after pix on my Facebook Page. I feel like a new man and I'm CONSTANTLY complimented by all of my friends and colleagues on how I look now. Betsy is by far the best and kindest soul, and I would wholeheartedly and unequivocally recommend her for anyone considering a new personal trainer....

My husband and I have been working out with Betsy in our home for over the past 2 years. Betsy designs workout that are always different. They are hard but certainly not boring! My husband has arthritic shoulders and Betsy has been careful to work around his limitations. He is also a rather reluctant exerciser and I have been impressed at how receptive he has been to Betsy's guidance and prodding. She can walk a delicate balance with him. The other issue worth noting is that Betsy is the MOST reliable person I have ever worked with in any area. She rings our bell at 8 a.m. sharp--never late, never early. In this day and age that is remarkable. I can recommend Betsy without reservation.


Betsy is awesome. Always on time, and committed. I've trained with her for about 3 years, have had good results. She works with your schedule and gives you a great session . Have absolutely no complaints. I recommend her wholeheartedly!

I recently started working with Betsy and I must say that you see results if you stay committed. With a good variety of exercises and training methods I am working out parts of my body that I have been ignoring during my own workouts. I know by sticking with this positive and motivating training I will achieve the goals I am looking for. Thanks Betsy!

I recently lost weight but have always struggled with that last 10 pounds. A friend recommended I try Betsy and I'm so happy that I did! Not only did I drop the 10 Lbs but I am also now exercising 3-4 times a week and have never felt better!!! Thank You!!


Betsy's workouts are challenging but not impossible (which is a positive). She focuses on my specific needs and creates workouts that push me out of my comfort zone. She pays special attention to form in order to prevent injury. She is reliable and keeps you accountable for your own goals. Since I began training with Betsy, I have become more toned, more flexible and more confidant.
