    I first worked with Crystal to get myself ready for a bilateral hip replacement. Her extensive knowledge of the body and its movements enabled her to tailor a work out to target the muscles I would use to recover quickly. We were very successful - my family and doctor were surprised at how well I bounced back. Four months later I was skiing!

    I continue to work out with Crystal for the same reasons - she knows so much about the body and muscle movements. She mixes up my workouts so I'm never bored. Her workouts are challenging and enjoyable. Her positiveness is a joy to be around. You won't be disappointed.

    I would recommend crystal as a personal trainer. I worked with her for a year during and after my pregnancy. She is great at making sure you progress and keeping the correct form so you don't injure yourself. She has great believing images of victory for her clients and always encourages to keep pushing.

    I have known Crystal for a long time and If you are looking for someone who will take care of you, believe for you and work with you with all that she is and with all of her heart then Crystal is the one your looking for.

    Crystal is one of the most exceptional personal trainers that I have had the pleasure to work with. She is a consummate professional, consistently positive, empathetic to her client's needs yet always able to push me to do one more repetition. Her creativity in developing varied routines and ability to modify on the fly to accommodate health challenges was beyond motivating. Her balanced routines emphasized core, flexibility, balance as well as strength and cardio. Every session was an adventure.

    Had we not both moved to new cities, I would still be working out with Crystal. Her workouts both challenge and inspire, her results are beyond remarkable and if that were not enough, her sunny and joyous personality is certain to keep you coming back for more!!

    I cannot recommend Crystal highly enough.

    I worked out with Crystal for about 18 months and the results were unbelievable. I'm in my late 70's and she gave me progressively harder and harder exercises so without ever exhorting myself I became stronger, more in balance and thinner! I miss working out with Crystal since she moved away from the San Diego area!....
