​VANESSA BOGENHOLM

A Very Different Type of Personal Trainer. I'm A 100% Mobile Trainer.

I know wanting to better your health and get fit is a priority for most people, but making that leap and actually doing something about it can be tough.

I hate gyms, always have, so don't work in them......I come to you in your home or a local park, where you feel comfortable and tailor a program to fit your wants and needs. I have all the equipment we will ever need and work out with you.

I specialize in getting people feeling strong again; especially people that haven't been active physically in a long time, if ever, in their lives.

Examples of Current Clients:

• helped a woman lose over 100lbs and a man lose over 120lbs.

• a man gain 20lbs of muscle and the arms he always dreamed of

• eating disorder clients become athletes

• older adults gain balance and mobility getting out of their wheelchairs

• young adults get fit and ready for scholastic sports

• heart attack and stroke patients get back to better health

• damaged joint and back problem sufferers learn how to manage their injuries to live fuller lives

• and many other clients learn that exercise can be fun and a regular part of their lives.

    I started working out with Vanessa a couple of years ago, right after I got married, in hopes of getting in better shape as I was hoping to get pregnant. Little did I know how soon that would happen! I have to say that working out with Vanessa not only kept me fit and strong during my pregnancy, but I feel like I had a pretty easy labor and delivery because of how strong I was! I only took 2 weeks off after baby was born, and we picked right back up. She has always designed workouts that are made specifically for me, and every workout is new and exciting! She pushes me to be better. She is honest, encouraging, and will make you work so hard, without even noticing! I feel like Vanessa is family! I love working out with her, and moving closer to my fitness goals.*

    As a 68 year old unfit man I thought I was beyond redemption but I decided to see if i could make one last effort to turn the corner. Amazingly Vanessa provided the answer. She has designed specific routines to work on my weaknesses and has pushed me to do things that I did not think possible - I am even jogging a little! She has a wicked sense of humour which often helps me to ignore the protests my body is making. She has made a real difference to the way I look at exercise and I will be eternally grateful. I cannot recommend too highly.*

    Vanessa is awesome. I really like the fact that she comes to my house as I have now no excuses not to exercise. She has the right balance of being a good motivator and being able to push me out of my comfort zone. Vanessa was able to identify problem areas immediately and developed a plan to address them. She has a great personality and a very positive attitude. I highly recommend her.*

    Vanessa took on the difficult job of rehabilitating a 65 year old family member after a hospital stay. She assessed her very well, gave her clear directions, provided instructions to us regarding support materials, and kept her on task and encouraged. Also, she is very reasonably priced. We highly recommend Vanessa!*

    Vanessa is helping my 87 year old father with strengthening exercises. My father generally dislikes most physical activity because of his limited mobility. Vanessa is very encouraging and he really enjoys their time. He even requested to have her come more days of the week. Our family is very pleased with her service.*

    Honestly, don't hire anyone else but Vanessa. No one can get your tired bottom into shape better or faster than her. I know, I was a professional athlete who totally let herself go. and, voila - I'm on the right path with Vanessa. She's a Drill Sargent, but with a million dollar smile. And, more importantly she pushes you, but not to the point of exhaustion or failure. She understands that fine line - the true successful line of REAL RESULTS!*

    Vanessa has been training my teenage son for a few weeks now. She immediately understood his reluctance to change his lifestyle and helped him understand the benefits of a more active life. She is addressing nutrition as well as exercise. Vanessa is very professional, experienced and motivating. I would highly recommend her.*
