    I don't like exercise! Dana has made it MORE than fun for me to meet her twice a week for almost 2 years. I have a recurring repeating injury that occurs as a result of my every day life that requires thought and perspective to counter act and she is continually educating herself and me on the best way to attack my very specific situation. I am grateful for her enthusiasm and her genuine concern for my well being.

    Dana is a fantastic pilates trainer and overall person. She has helped me tremendously to not only look my best but start feeling my best. I believe my work with Dana has made a huge impact on my chronic pain. She is knowledgable, personable, friendly, and patient with her clients. I would recommend Dana to anyone!

    Dana is an awesome trainer. She is so personable and fun. She is incredibly knowledgeable about body alignment and Pilates. I started Pilates with Dana about four months ago and became hooked. She is a pleasure to work with!

    Dana is a wonderful instructor, she is fun and personable. I am not very flexible, but thanks to Dana now have a better range of motion.

    Dana has been training me for months. Her knowledge of physiology and biomechanics has made her a perfect instructor for me!! Having bilateral hip replacements; my training protocol has to be carefully thought out and executed. Dana has accomplished both. I look forward to training with her twice a week, and plan on sticking around for A LONG TIME. I have had year's of trainers in my life, and can say with confidence Dana is the best!!! I can't wait to get my "six-pack" that Dana promised me if I continue to work hard and she shows me the way!! DR. Craig
