I’m a former type A mom who had to get everything done, there were no days off. I felt like I always had to be “on” or people wouldn’t respect me. Every workout had to be intense and at least an hour to “count”. I ate great most of the time but on occasion had too much wine on a Friday night. I pushed myself to the limit because that’s how I thought I would get max results in all areas of life.

All of that lead to me feeling burnt out, never in the present moment and with no real results to show for it. So what changed? I discovered the magic of listening to what my body was telling me to do and trusting it.

I learned how to workout more effectively & still get results in 30 minutes or less. I have built in time for stillness during my day to have some alone time which is especially needed now as a mom to a busy toddler.

    I have been working out with Andrea for 8 months. It has been phenomenal and life changing. I now view exercise and nutrition in a whole different way. I appreciate the reasons for working out and the importance of strength training. I started with Andrea before my wedding and continued after the wedding. For the first time I saw changes in my body that I had been trying to make happen for years on my own. Working with Andrea gave me the results I needed. Andrea is very positive, upbeat and encouraging. I do and will recommend Andrea to everyone!

    I've been working with Andrea for personal training almost one year now. The experience has been amazing. I've had incredible success both with weight loss and general health and fitness. I feel amazing, so much more energy and stamina than I used to have. I'm 37 and feel like I'm 25 again. I've worked with other trainers in the past and had success but it either wasn't lasting or they had me doing moves that ended up hurting me in the long run which hampered my progress. Andrea is so well educated and tailors the workouts to challenge me taking my personal situation into account. She's always changing it up and making me push myself. I've created good habits with her help and can't say enough good things about her work.

    Andrea has been my trainer since May. She has been the best investment I have made for myself in a long time. She really customizes your workouts to meet your own, personal fitness goals. Not only has she helped me to get in better shape, she has taught me how to correctly do each workout and find where I need more work. She does assessments with you every couple of months to show how your progress is coming. I only do the 30 minutes sessions with Andrea and she has really taught me that it's not about the amount of time you work out, its the type and quality of workout that you do. I would highly recommend Andrea to anyone in the twin cities area.

    I am a male and I was hesitant to use Andrea because she specializes in women's' fitness but she has taken the time and has the knowledge to be an excellent trainer for me. I would recommend her to anyone.

    Andrea really helped me during my pregnancy. Between our workouts and her motivational skills I maintained a very healthy weight during the pregnancy (even with gestational diabetes), gained an amazing amount of fitness and ended up healthier than I was pre-pregnancy after the baby was born.

    I was so impressed with her ability to train that I have hired her again to help me get into even better shape - I want to be a Hot Momma!! I haven't felt or looked this good in ages.

    Andrea is fun to work with and she really goes the extra mile during and between training sessions. It's easier for me to feel motivated when working with someone who has such a great attitude and work ethic.
