    I have been training with Sam twice weekly for over two years, and I can unreservedly recommend her as an exceptional personal trainer and holistic health expert. Thanks to Sam my body has completely changed and I am stronger, sleeker, fitter and happier. Sam has so many important skills – where do I begin? Firstly, she is not just impressively knowledgeable and experienced in her field but she knows how to communicate and teach. Her instructions are clear and articulate, she gives physical demonstrations and she is constantly adapting the workout according to my ongoing needs. She has a deep understanding of anatomy and kinesthetics, making every session safe and productive. And she draws from a diverse range of disciplines – her state-of-the-art knowledge of yoga, breathwork, nutrition and bone health gives maximum benefit to our training sessions.

    But on top of all this, Sam is a special individual: ethical, caring, compassionate and never judgemental. Our sessions are not in the least boring, always instructive and always fun.

    Sam is constantly deepening her knowledge of overall human wellness. She also has the ability to share what she knows in a very unassuming manner. She customizes every workout, and is able to make changes on the spot when needed. She is always thinking of ways for me to get the most out of every workout! There are very few trainers that have the vast knowledge of yoga, ayurveda, traditional strength and aerobic training, corrective exercises, nutrition, and overall wellness. Because of this I feel Sam is hands down the best personal trainer out there! ~ Tyffanee

    I just recently moved to Park City from San Diego. My trainer in San Diego suggested that I give Sam a try. It was a very good recommendation. I have seen very positive gains in my health and fitness level. The first area that we worked on was my postural alignment. I had used the Egoscue method before but had gone away from it. I am now more consistent with my Egoscue routine and it works. I work out with Sam 1-2 times per week and we have been focusing on my core strength. The effort has been really worth it. Sam is knowledgeable and has an engaging personality. She is also very clear in her expectations and what I need to do to get the maximum benefit.

    I came to Sam last summer after being thrown from a horse. Needless to say, I really needed some help with my alignment. What was interesting though was Sam noticing a former injury to my shoulder that also had my spine out of alignment and had created on and off back pain.
    The exercises really helped me get back on track and now, after 4 years, my shoulder injury is healed. I actually had thought surgery would be the only way out.
    It was also interesting learning more about postural alignment. I don't think many people realize how important good posture is for all of us.
    I would and have highly recommended Sam.

    Sam is absolutely, hands down the best trainer in Park City, if not Utah! Her knowledge in the field is so impressive! I was working out with a different trainer before going to Sam so I was fit starting my sessions and had something to compare to. Anyway, 5 years later, I have had 2 babies and my body measurements are smaller than they were pre-baby. I know each exercise Sam has me do is healthy and will not create any injuries especially when I am pregnant! She is constantly educating herself in the field attending exercise and fitness classes so she is current on new ways to stay fit. I have found this to be rare in many trainers. SHE IS THE BEST!!!!
