    I have been working with Jacqueline for a number of months now and I have been very happy with her. I contacted her to help me get on track because of a knee injury. I have a torn ACL and don't want to have another surgery. She works with me on building up the strength in my knee and the areas around it. Also much works is done on balance. She continuously does her research on new exercises and has the patience and makes sure they being done correctly. She clearly understands how the human body works and pushes you enough to get the most out of each workout.
    I admire how she takes care of herself and keeps pushing herself and her clients to get healthy and strong. I would highly recommend her to anyone that wants and needs to get in shape and get on the road to getting healthy.

    Thank you so much for your comments. It's a pleasure training you because I see the effort you put into every workout. It's also gratifying to see the improvement you've attained through effectively applying yourself.

    Having recently retired from full-time work as a professor of English, I decided that I wanted to devote my newly acquired time to getting in shape. I found Jacqueline by searching online and it's almost impossible to express how lucky I feel to be working with her. Jacqueline understands bodies and how to help people (who, like me, may not like exercise and have tried to avoid it for years) move from reluctant to eager exercisers. I look forward to our weekly sessions and I love that we can hold them in my apartment. After a careful assessment, Jacqueline suggested that we work on balance, strength, flexibility and core. It's now been about two months and I can say with assurance that Jacqueline knows what she is doing. She diagnoses problems quickly and finds inventive ways to solve them and she tailors all of the exercises to fit my changing needs and my growing strength. She is also fun to work with. I am delighted with the results.

    Thank you so much for your comments. I truly appreciate your affirmation of my ability. Just as important though, is to know you look forward to working with me, and I have made it fun for you.
