    Kim is a wonderful trainer and instructor for people of all ages and at all levels of health and fitness. She is caring, confident and creative in her approaches to teach all of her clients at that level of need and physical abilities. She is a gem and I would highly recommend her to anyone!!

    I have gone to many gyms and have several different trainers over the past 30 years. Kim Kleiman is the best trainer I have had and teaches the best classes I have attended. She is encouraging, attentive, and creative. When I had an injury, she took the time to research and create safe workouts for me so I could continue to exercise without further injuring myself. I actually enjoy going to workout and really miss it when I can't be there. Not only does she train her clients well, but she is continuously educating herself on new fitness research, body mechanics for client safety, and looking for ways to provide variety to the classes. She is reasonably priced and pushes just the right amount. Since I have been taking her classes I feel strong and motivated to continue. I recommend her to my friends and anyone who I speak with who is looking to exercise. I have had a few friends start with her since I began and they all have been happy with their results ( one even commented above). I would encourage anyone looking for a great workout class or personal trainer to give Kim a try. You
    Will not regret it!

    I highly recommend Kim Kleiman! She is amazing! She gets the very best out of her clients, no matter their age or level of fitness. Her dynamic approach is fun and engaging, even for those of us who usually hate rigorous exercise. I like that her methodology is focused on health and well-being, rather than numbers. As a result, her clients lose weight and gain strength, endurance, and self-confidence. She helps you reach goals you never thought possible. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable and well-versed on women's health, she also truly cares about her clients. She's the best!

    When I started Kim's fitness class a year and a half ago I hadn't exercised in 14 years. Her gentle but firm encouragement keeps me going back. She designs different workouts every time, so you are never bored. I can now keep up with the class. I have lost weight and inches, but most importantly I feel strong and healthy! If you are looking for a fitness class or personal trainer I highly recommend Kim Kleiman.
