My favorite client story

My client, Val, suffered from sciatic pain for years. Within the first two months of training, her pain was completely gone! She was amazed that with some simple exercises and stretches, she was able to be pain free without the use of medication.

My training philosophy

I listen to my clients, to learn about their goals, concerns, apprehensions and medical or physical limitations. Each workout is designed with each client's needs in mind. I am extremely encouraging, patient and understanding.

My training experience

I have trained clients in a gym setting, in their homes and parks. I started teaching fitness classes 30 years ago and became an ACE certified personal trainer in January 2015.

I would highly recommend Cathie to anyone looking to improve their physical conditioning. She has improved the quality of my life with her dedication to and interest in my personal health.

It’s been one of the best health decisions I’ve made. My goals were to develop muscle strength and to improve my balance and flexibility. Cathie has helped me to fulfill those goals at my age of 63! I am in the best shape I’ve ever been in my life. I am amazed at what I have accomplished over this past year, especially due to the fact that I had never worked out in my life. She has a positive, fun and encouraging demeanor. She is very attentive to making sure that I perform each workout with good body mechanics and safety. I highly recommend Cathie as a personal trainer! With Cathie, I’m looking forward to keeping my family’s longevity going strong!

Cathie is a brilliant, top notch trainer for all ages. She helped me, with much positive encouragement, after I had brain surgery and built up my confidence, especially with my balance. Whether strength, muscle building or weight loss, she’s always very positive and helpful. Anyone could greatly benefit.

She provides an approach for her clients that is very individualized, based on each person’s needs and limitation … all the while keeping in mind what the client wants to achieve. Cathie is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her work. She is one of the most warm and friendly people you will ever meet.

Teresa Y.

I found her extremely knowledgeable, detailed, thorough and thoughtful. She worked up techniques, that she would alter weekly, that fit my needs and interest. I would highly recommend Cathie as a personal trainer.

Sharon M.

Cathie is very in tune with understanding the need to keep me engaged and balancing my work outs to keep them fresh.

Hi, Amber. I want to recommend Cathie Sandison. I am 66 yo & have been a client of Cathie's for the past 5 years. Best choice I ever made! I have continued doing virtual workouts during the past year in lieu of the pandemic.

Susan

So sweet and understanding. 10/10

Tulsi P.

I recommend Cathie. She is very motivating and positive. Work out of her home or she can meet you at the park with a workout routine, weights, etc.

Cathie is amazing! I have been training with her for 2 years and she has transformed my strength and agility. When I started with her I had to wear a knee brace on walks and now I am jogging without a knee brace! Cathie is skilled at creating personalized, whole body workouts. Each week is different and the time flies by. Cathie is a genuine, kind and patient person. She motivates me to show up every week :-)

Cathie is wonderful to work with... very encouraging and positive. While I am already pretty active with exercise, she helped me take things to the next level. I am improving my areas of weakness and learning to work around areas of past injuries in knees and shoulders. Highly recommend!

L.H.

Working with Cathie has been one of the best health decisions I’ve made since my retirement! My goals were to develop muscle strength and to improve my balance and flexibility. Cathie has helped me to fulfill those goals over the past 5 years. Never having done a workout in a gym or with a trainer prior to meeting her, I have been truly amazed at what I have been able to accomplish. I am currently 66 yo and in the best shape I’ve ever been in my life! Cathie creates workouts specific to my needs & adapts them accordingly, while also being very attentive to ensure that I perform each workout safely & with good body mechanics. She is always positive, fun and has such an encouraging demeanor. I highly recommend Cathie as a personal trainer! With Cathie, I continue to look forward to keeping my family’s longevity going strong!”
