It has been my pleasure to work in this industry for 37 years! It was great to be there when it really took off in the early 80's, watch all the trends and follow the latest in exercise science. Along with helping individuals get in shape, I also love the challenge of working with people who have health issues or physical limitations. Working along with other practitioners to help people achieve their goals is a specialty of mine as well. Now let's have some fun!

    I recommend Denise as an experienced and professional trainer. I came to her with a case of plantar fascitis. She did extensive research on the condition and helped me get through the problem. Subsequently we worked on conditioning me for a 50 day ski season. She did a great job and I got through the season with no injuries.

    From Leslie Vermut:
    It has been a pleasure working with Denise over the last ten years. I came to her with a bad case of bursitis on my left hip which Orthopedists could not cure. Denise cured the problem in a couple of months by strenghtening my hips. I felt like a miracle had occurred.
    I enjoy every workout. Denise is warm, friendly and professional. She works with you at your own pace, and never makes you uncomfortable. It is unbelievable how much more fit I am than other people my age. I owe this to Denise, and her belief in me.

    I have worked with Denise for more than ten years, three times a week....until recently, when the schedule has become a bit erratic. I was way overweight and tired easily. My internest recommended her to me and to many of his patients. She saw me through 53 lbs of weight loss, rotator cuff surgery, significantly improved stamina, better diet, introduced me to like-minded distinguished people with whom I am still friends and with whom, for the most part, she still works. She has learned new methods during this period of time and looks for new ways to help her clients....she is personally very athletic but tailors her coaching to the level of her client's endurance and physiology. As an asthmatic, she knows the techniques of physical training even for the breathing-impaired and has treated several Parkinson's patients effectively. She stays in touch with various physicians about their patients and advises the latter on diet, as well as exercise. Denise's open-minded, intelligent and rigorous attention to detail makes her a star.

    It has been my honor to train Mr. Litton. Not only is he a brilliant man, but a great friend and family man as well. I have learned so much from him as well.
    Thank You Jim
