    I have been a client of Sandy's for 7 years now! I am a paraplegic (paralyzed from the chest down with no trunk/ab/core control), so the challenges Sandy faces in working with me are plenty!

    Never seeing the negative, the always positive Ms Schaad has brought me miles from the weakened client I used to be. We have worked on upper body strength, long-distance and sprint wheelchair (rolling) endurance, and surprisingly, core strengthening! We change up the workouts frequently so that neither of us gets bored, and I am always surprised at her creative ideas.

    As the above testimonial mentioned, she NEVER lets me waiver from using the proper form and posture while doing ANYTHING!

    I highly recommend Sandy to anyone considering a trainer that can offer a variety of workout options, i.e. Pilates. strength training, flexibility, etc

    Client of Ms. Schaad for about one year. I found her to be very knowledgeable and very professional. Her focus during our sessions was extraordinary. The slightest deviation from the required form was always caught resulting in a consistency of training I wouldn't have thought possible.

    I recommend her without qualification.
