Training with Gail was one of the best things I have done to improve my strength. Gail is not only knowledgeable and direct with her approach, but she often pushes me to my limit.


Prior to working out with Gail, my strength was extremely limited. I knew almost nothing about weight and strength training and how it relates to a healthier lifestyle. Her workouts have given my body more definition than I have ever had and I feel so much better about myself.


Gail’s genuine concern for my health and fitness needs is just what I need in a trainer. I have also received personalized advice on nutrition, which has helped me improve my overall diet.

For the past two years, I've been working with Gail to become stronger and more flexible. She is an excellent trainer and works as needed with each individual. She has had to tweak my workout several times, especially in the beginning because of my lower back muscle spasms, which would make me practically immobile or at the very least, in much pain.


I used to compete as an adult figure skater.  In my mid to late 20s and early 30s, I skated quite often.  Then I hurt my back in an effort to gain the one elusive jump:  the axel.  The constant falls on my left hip caused a temporary scoliosis due to muscle imbalance and spasm on one side.  Even though I worked with massage and chiropractic to relieve symptoms, I knew that my only way back to being physically fit was to get back to proper proportion through strength training.


One of the greatest side effects from my strength training is that I no longer hurt myself doing day-to-day activities!  My muscles are lean and strong and my clothing fits better.  The best thing is that I love the way I look in my bikini and in sleeveless shirts!  Strength training -- it's the way to go.  And Gail is the one to get you there!


I can honestly say that training with Gail has changed my life. My weekly sessions with Gail provide me with a well-rounded exercise program. Her program challenges me with cardio and strength building exercises. What I love about the program the most is that Gail has experience in Pilates, nutrition, and bodybuilding. The tips and support that she gives follows me at home and at my local gym. I started with one session of Pilates then added a second session of strength. With the combined regimen, I have lost 10 pounds and am 5 pounds from my goal weight.


Personal training with Gail has helped strengthen and tone my body. Each session is invigorating and uplifting. Gail tailors the workout to my body and my goals. Even on days that I am tired and feeling unsure of my stamina, I end up having a fabulous workout and leave feeling stronger and in a great mood!


As a trainer, Gail is serious about your form and pushing you to work to your potential. After each session Gail does a follow-up, via e-mail, by checking on how my body responds to each workout. She uses this information along with the notes that she keeps to track the progress I am making and to continue designing my program according to my body.


I am so glad I decided to work with Gail and only regret not starting sooner! I feel stronger and my family and friends have already begun noticing the change in my physical appearance.

Before working with Gail, my upper body was lacking strength. I didn't realize I was that weak until our first session together. She wanted me to do some chest flyes with 3 lb weights in each hand, I could barely get them above my chest. At that point I knew I needed some work!

I am happy to report that I progressed from 3 lbs to 5 lbs, then 8 lbs, then 10, and today (less than 2 years later) I'm using 12.5 lb weights in each hand and I can say I have gotten much stronger and more defined! Thanks to Gail for her motivation and expertise! I'm hoping to move up to 15 lbs in due time, but for now I'm extremely happy with my progress!


I feel healthier, look better and have more energy. I am able to lift my children with ease, in addition to lifting and carrying the heavy laundry basket up and down the steps. If I did not have Gail as a trainer, I would not challenge myself to the same level of our workouts.


She pushes me when I think I can’t continue, but realizes my limits. I have worked with Gail for almost 3 years. During that time, I was pregnant and maintained modified workouts. After giving birth, I lost 30 pounds and 3 dress sizes in about 5 months without nursing. I don’t know what I would do without her!


Thank you for providing me with the statistics from our 6 weeks together. I am amazed that I have lost a total of 3.75 inches from my body. My goal in consulting a personal trainer was to learn strength training exercises and eventually get myself back into clothing that I could wear before the birth of my child 5 years ago. I had stalled on my own and despite diligent work-outs on my treadmill, I could not achieve any further positive result. Having someone show you the exercise, do it with you and correct your form when needed has made all the difference.


I have taken what I have learned during our sessions, added additional cardio and have a work-out routine that is not boring, has shown results with no injury to my body and that can be done in a reasonable period of time on a daily basis. (This is an important consideration when you work full time and have a family to care for). The scale has even started to move in the direction I was hoping for. I have tried on those clothes from over 5 years ago and I am in them again. In a few more weeks, using what you have taught me, I am sure that I will be able to wear those clothes again confidently.
