I have been in business and a member of IDEA since November 1990. I have been certified by the American Council on Exercise since 1990 as well. I have a personal training business that I primarily work out of studio located in my home, as well as train at the client's home as well. I have built my business through referrals and have strived to educated my clients on good eating, exercise and work habits. I stress the importance of health over aesthetics or vanity and have been successful in assiting clients change their lifestyles in order to be more fit, functional in daily living and most importantly feel good about themselves.

    I worked with Sheryl for 9 years before my family moved away. I think she was exceptional. She guided me through intense work outs to prepare my for my first triathlons, and many equestrian competitions. When I broke my back, Sheryl was instrumental in helping me regain my strength and self confidence to train as hard as I once had. I highly recommend Sheryl to anyone who wants to not only transform their body, but their lifestyle as well.

    On a friend's recommendation, I started working with Sherry three years ago when I was pregnant with my second child. She tailored workouts to my progressing "expansion" and gave me a detailed plan to follow at home. My post baby recovery was so fast and almost painless which I attribute to our work together.
    I continue to work with her weekly. She teaches me to value strength and health rather than chase a number on a scale. Most important for me, I found a real love of exercise thanks to her.

    Sherry is absolutely fabulous! I am a 56 year old woman and have been training with Sherry for the past five years. Within the first few weeks, I could see and feel a positive difference. I am much stronger and have lots more energy. I love the way Sherry mixes things up. She pushes me to the limit without pushing too far. I would absolutely recommend Sherry!

    Sherry is terrific - she started with a thorough assessment, built a program to help me achieve my goals (fit to surf!) and worked carefully to get me there while navigating through injuries/physical issues. Her workouts change each session, and she constantly challenges me to achieve more than I think I can. She follows up/checks in in between sessions with advice (holds me accountable) and provides recommendations for workouts between our sessions. My figure has transformed, I feel stronger and fit. I highly recommend Sherry as a partner to better health and well being - or whatever your fitness goals.
