    I started with Monika with the goal of weight loss. At my initial consultation I also discussed the fact that at 33 years old I had a total hip replacement with pain that still continued daily. As a nurse with long hours on my feet all day- pain medication was a part of my normal life. After a couple of weeks with Monika I could for sure feel a difference. I have been with her around six months and I am officially pain free! While my doctors continuously provided more pain medication- Monika determined which muscles were weak and worked on these muscles. With the food modifications/ consistency- I have lost inches in the process/clothes size decreased. I actually look forward to every session because I know that she has my best interest in mind. I need her mix of smile- encouragement-toughness to keep me going. I appreciate the “can do” attitude. She is a great trainer and really cares about her clients!

    This is my first ever time working with a trainer and I am so glad I found Monika. She paid attention to my goals and customizes the workout to those goals. I do not want to be buff (as if that is even a possibility!), but I do want to be stronger and more balanced in muscular strength.

    Initially I worked with Monika to get stronger and more toned for my best friends wedding. She impressed me with her knowledge and her focus to make sure my goals were met. She's not a typical trainer - where you workout and they forget about you until your next session. Monika texted me and was in constant communication to help me make better daily nutrition and workout choices. A few months into our training, I found out I was pregnant. Monika changed the workouts and adapted to my new condition. I have learned so much from her! She isn't an average trainer; she truly cares about your health and meeting your personal goals. I wouldn't trust my fitness journey with anyone else but Monika :):)

    Monika knows exactly what I need at every workout. I can tell she has spent time preparing a routine that is just for me. She knows when to push me and when to modify an exercise so I can be successful. She is reliable and a delight to be around. I can't say enough good things about her.

    At age 67, my body started to lose balance, strength and endurance. Monika provided a program/workout for me that included all of the above; a metabolic theme. Thanks to her, I am stronger, more balanced and receiving more cardio benefits. My core is stronger and the torso smaller. She's a Pro.
