    Connie Aronson created a work out program for me that I can use traveling and when I am home — just what I was looking for. While I am a new client of hers it was evident from the onset that she has a holistic approach derived from a substantial body of up to date knowledge about human performance, and driven by a passion to fitness and athleticism.

    Very kind of you to say Mark~ thank-you and I'll look forward to working with you again!

    Connie is an absolute DELIGHT to work with. She has an incredible amount of knowledge and a talent for conveying body awareness cues that create a lasting effect. I came to her asking for a program to increase my base fitness for rock climbing, and gained a much greater sense of proprioception as well as a solid set of maintenance exercises. I can' t recommend her enough!

    I love Connie's TRX class. The workout is fantastic. I feel a very definite increase in core and overall strength. Connie has an unusual skill for creative analogy when encouraging her students to think about how to use specific muscles and how to position the body for maximum benefit. She is always so present for each person in the class.

    Connie is an inspiring role model, knowledgeable trainer, and all-around-stellar-human. Her positive energy is infectious and she inspires me to work harder, laugh more, and make every day count. She is extremely professional and takes her job - and training time - very serious, so you can always be sure to get a challenging workout tailored to your needs. I highly recommend Connie for all types of clients and goals!
