    I was looking for a trainer with experience with older people to give me a training regimen for workouts at home. Jacqueline has met my expectations and given me a varied program to work to maintain and improve my fitness level and strengthen my corps. She is always on time, pleasant and caring, yet skilled and encouraging me to push my limits. I believe my end results will exceed my expectiations. I am grateful for Jacqueline's assistance and can strongly recommend her to anyone seeking a personal trainer.

    Not only is Jacqueline an excellent physical fitness trainer, character-wise she is a very positive influence on me. I feel privileged to participate in her Diabetes Intervention and Prevention class, and I am confident that I would benefit from any health and physical fitness class that she instructs. She is an outstanding teacher and leader!

    I have been taking the Ageless Conditioning class at the Elsie Stuhr Center with Jacqueline for over five years. I am also taking her Weight Management and Fitness class. She is a consummate professional highly trained and certified in senior fitness. In addition, her classes are light-hearted and fun for participants without failing to always be attentive to their special needs. My desire to work on my own fitness has been enhanced by her willingness to share insights as to how best to build a regimen that works for me. She is personable, warm and welcoming to those seeking assistance in maintaining their independent status as they experience many of the conditions seniors are subject to. I recommend her without reservation to those desiring a healthier, happier emotional and physical life experience.

    14My husband & I trained with Jacqueline last year and we absolutely loved her. She was very professional, always on time for appointments, very knowledgeable, and I felt I could really trust her with all of my health issues. She addressed all of our concerns and got us started in making some great lifestyle changes with diet and exercise. We got a lot stronger, more balanced, and fit. I would certainly recommend her training and service to anyone, young or old, healthy or not.
