    I've been working with Vanessa only a few weeks and already see the benefit. Our focus is on getting my body into alignment so I'm not re-injuring while at the same time pushing it further to build-up my strength. She doesn't waste time – get's right the workout knowing just how to push. And, she's personable and supportive. As for nutrition, we're starting with my reframing my mindset instead of food intake. Important reframing for me! She's a gem!This customer rated you highly for work quality, professionalism, responsiveness, value, and punctuality.*

    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!*

    My first visit with Vanessa I was very nervous and Vanessa knew how I was feeling, made me comfortable and we got to work, using her 3 days a week and feel so much better after just 2 weeks.*

    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.*

    Vanessa clearly knows what she is doing. The exercises are not just rote standard exercises but are specifically aimed at my needs. She is an excellent motivator.*

    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 great so far...professional, knowledgable and personable. I'm 4 sessions into personal training, and my achy muscles thank her for the transformation that my body will be making over the months to come.*

    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.*
