    I had a back injury several years ago and eventually got better to the point where my primary care doctor suggested I work with a personal trainer to gain strength and hopefully help prevent any additional back trouble. I have been working with Christine now since January of 2017 to do that. Given my medical history of back trouble, she advised several circuits and routines designed to strengthen my core and my whole body overall. I'm in my 40s now and while I could lift more weight back when I was in my 20s, I truly feel my entire body is overall stronger now than it ever has been. In addition, I have not been experiencing back pain, which allows me to live my life pretty much the way it was prior to the initial injury. I give Christine credit for those two major changes in my life (my overall strength/endurance and lack of back pain). Christine is always very attentive to how I might be feeling on any given day (tired due to a bad night's sleep, etc.) and she tailors her suggested routine for me based on what information I give to her. She's great at setting goals for me and is great at motivating me to achieve those goals. I highly recommend Christine as a personal trainer / fitness instructor, I couldn't be happier with my continued progress in my fitness goals, and I will continue to work with her to achieve those goals!

    I have had the pleasure of working with Christine for over a year now. I discovered I have diastisis recti after having two children when my youngest was two. After much research I found that I could correct it through the proper exercise. I contacted Christine and she was able to come up with a plan to help me close the gap. I have made significant progress and am happy with the results! She has taught me to really listen to my body and proper technique. Christine is creative in her workouts and makes our sessions fun. She really listens to what my goals are and helps me to reach them. I have tried many workout programs and never saw results like the results I have seen since working with Christine. She has really helped me sculpt my body into what I want it to be. Christine is very motivational and I would highly recommend her to anyone.

    I have been training with Christine for 10 months now and I love it! This is a true testament to her since I have never been one to spend time working out. She is always finding new ways to challenge me and makes the session different each week. I find her style to be motivating and encouraging and although she is always pushing for more, she does it in a way that you don't even realize it. She is great about knowing what others are capable of and finding ways to get you there, especially when it comes to achieving goals. I like that she is always worried about proper form and making sure that exercises are done correctly to avoid any injuries. Education is a key part of any workout with Christine. Overall I couldn't ask for a greater trainer to learn from and keep me motivated to live a healthier life.

    I have been fortunate to have Christine as my personal trainer for several months. After an initial assessment of my health condition, she created a program of weight training and cardio that has steadily increased my strength and endurance and has allowed me to tone up and shed a few lbs in the process. She varies the workouts; educating me along the way about form, muscle groups, and equipment options. That education has allowed me to supplement our twice weekly in-home sessions with my own workouts. She leads by example, as the picture of health, and motivates me to continually improve. Christine has the perfect blend of professionalism, sincerity and cheerfulness!

    I have known Christine now for a few years and consider my workout regime as fairly serious. I tend to be a bit critical about trainers/instructors since I believe they need to "walk the walk" so to speak and pardon the cliché. She is the epdumy of a a quality trainer who understands the harmony of cardio, endurance and strength training. More importantly, she embraces weight resistance training that will have one of the most impacts in anyone's transformation. Although she is very serious and professional about her training, she knows how to make it a fun and enjoyable at the same time. Her own fitness level is very motivating which I believe is a major factor in keeping one inspired to reach their own goals. Thank you Christine for your help and inspiration over the years, for a great website and for your wonderful laughter.
