What clients are saying about Teresa

 "Teresa’s greatest gifts are her inquisitive mind, her passion for her work and an unwavering focus on her clients during a session, even in a crowded gym.  Couple that with her training in a multiple of disciplines and she has a combination that is impossible to beat. She is very personable, genuinely interested in you, and a pleasure to work with."

Personal Training

 

"Teresa is personable and has a lot of integrity.  She is passionate about health and fitness, and it is clear from speaking with her that she is very knowledgeable about diet, physiology, and physical injuries.  

She prepares exercise routines that are individualized and challenging, and offers dietary advice.  Teresa emphasizes correct form with each exercise and motivates me to push past my perceived limits so that I get visible results.  My balance, strength, and stamina have all improved since I started working with Teresa.  She goes "above and beyond" to make sure her clients are satisfied. 

Teresa brings enthusiasm and energy to every session.  Her easy going and friendly nature creates a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere.  She makes each workout challenging, creative, and fun.  Most important of all, she is a good motivator.  I highly recommend Teresa as a personal trainer."

Personal Training and Nutrition Coaching

 

"I have always struggled with my weight, and couldn't achieved the results I wanted by exercising on my own.  I realized I needed the extra motivation from Teresa to push me further in my workouts and help change my eating habits.  Since Teresa has inspired me to make changes toward a healthier lifestyle, this has become a crucial aspect of my life.  After six weeks of training with Teresa I lost 14lbs.  I have gained more confidence and feel better about myself.  I have chronic left shoulder pain after injuring it in a motor vehicle accident years ago, and I used to use this as an excuse not to exercise. Teresa started training me slowly by prescribing rehabilitative exercises for my shoulder which has strengthened it, and reduced the pain and swelling.  I will continue each day to take the information that Teresa has taught me regarding my workouts and nutrition and follow through with this new healthier lifestyle that has changed my life for the better!  I know this change is a lifetime process and I will face many obstacles every day, but knowing that I can count on Teresa to help support and encourage me to keep on going will help me to never give up!

Thank you Teresa from the bottom of my heart to yours for inspiring me to continue on with my new journey to a better me, and helping me achieve my lifetime goals!"

Somatic movement Education

 

"Teresa is a very caring person who is very passionate about proactive health care!  Both my husband and I are very impressed with the initial somatic movements Teresa taught us.  We both noticed a considerable difference from feeling very heavy with pain prior to the somatic movements to feeling very light and a dramatic decrease in pain…..in fact so very little that it was hardly noticeable after we completed the breathing and somatic movement exercise.   It was like magic…..from excruciating pain to hardly any pain at all!  We are very interested and excited to learn the remainder of the somatic movements to improve our overall health care and maintenance!  To Better Health . . .

Personal Training

 

"I have been working with Teresa for almost a year and it has been wonderful. She is a pleasure to work with and has helped me regain strength and mobility after a few years of health issues. Her training complements my running program and she knows how to help me with different exercises, stretches or somatics when I arrive with a crick or creak in my back or shoulders. I look forward to our sessions and I am in better shape all the time!"​

Rehabilitation and exercise therapy

 "I have been using Teresa for over 9 months to help me with the rehabilitation of my ankle after 2 major surgeries. The improvement from day 1 until 9 months later is awesome. I still have another surgery pending but am confident that my recovery will be sped up with her help. When I got a shoulder rotator cuff injury, she added exercises to heal and strengthen it. I returned to school recently and spent 10-12 hours a day just sitting. When I requested we change up the routine and just spend my hour stretching out all the kinks, soreness and pain, Teresa was happy to show me stretches I didn't know existed and I felt amazing after. She has also helped me with nutrition and a grocery store shop. The value I have received from her services, personal training, rehabilitation training and nutrition training has been well worth it and I have every intention of continuing with her help once my ankle rehab is over and I can focus on my weight goals. Lovely, knowledgeable, and highly qualified woman."

"Teresa is a truly exceptional trainer.  Her extensive knowledge of the human body and her passion for fitness show during every session.  When we began training, I had set some lofty goals for myself and within a few months I was stronger and healthier than I had ever been.  I cannot say enough about her and would wholeheartedly recommend her to all my friends and family."
