    I have been taking classes from Alexis for years. They were always fun, always exciting, always different enough to keep you coming back and keep you from getting bored. During those classes it was easy to see that not only was Alexis an awesome teacher, she was also incredibly knowledgeable about health, fitness, the human body and how they all work together to make you your best self. So, when I decided to treat myself to a personal trainer, there was only one choice! She has been an amazing motivator and helps me work with my body in a way that feels very personal. She is and will always be my trainer for LIFE!

    I’ve personally trained with Alexis for several years. Her years of experience and certifications are impressive and prove to me she is dedicated. She challenges and encourages me to set personal fitness goals and helps me to achieve them.
    She is the epitome of what I expect in my personal trainer. She’s amazing!

    I've been working out with Alexis for almost 26 years - yes, you read that right - 26 years! And I plan to continue working out with her for many more years. She's dedicated to her clients and their health and well being. Alexis continuously learns new techniques and approaches to maximize the effectiveness of our workouts and to be a valuable resource. If she doesn't know the answer to a question, she'll research it and get back to me. Alexis individualizes the workouts of my workout partner and myself to accommodate any special issues that arise. She's a gem.
