I am a passionate health and fitness professional and I love the type of work that I do. I have been teaching varied types of classes to different populations since 1987. Working out, sharing, increasing my knowledge,and changing lives though fitness is my mission. Working with seniors of all fitness and cognitive levels is one of my specialties. Acting as a driving force by creating new lives for the inexperienced exerciser, through personal training is another. I believe positivity and optimism are the keys to opening doors and moving on to the next successful level. God makes it all possible because life is a gift to cherish.

    Fergie (Yvonne) served as a personal in-home trainer for my mother for several months, focusing on balance and strengthening exercises. She is deeply knowledgeable and compassionate in her approach, customizing exercises each session to ensure steady and measured progress. She is a very understanding fitness expert, who encouraged and understood the unique needs of a geriatric client. She was flexible when needed and an absolute professional. We would highly recommend her and will definitely reach back out to resume services with Fergie (Yvonne) when the need arises again.

    I had the pleasure of working out with Yvonne for years. She changed my entire mindset and educated me on effective exercising. Her knowledge and passion for what she does shows in the workouts she creates, which are never the same. She keeps your muscles guessing, and makes it fun! I'm forever grateful to Yvonne and that she was placed in my life to give me the skills to live a healthy lifestyle.

    I had the pleasure of attending one of Yvonne's stretch classes. I have multiple sclerosis. Yvonne is not only professional and knowledgeable about fitness to the human body, she is also very gentle and compassionate to her students. Knowing my condition, she taught me to be gentle on my body and progressively work to complete the exercises. I did not need to rush. The stretch class helped increase my energy level and relieved some of the spasticity I experience with this disease. Looking forward to doing it again!!!

    I have been a student in Yvonne's fitness classes for years. She always leads a challenging and energetic workout with an encouraging and positive attitude. I always feel good after class and always feel glad I got myself there--despite it being 5am!!!

    Yvonne is the best, hands down. She has helped me become stronger and has kept me motivated to achieve many fitness and health goals. She always updates the class to keep our interest and changes it regularly to meet our needs and new fitness requests. Her training has truly helped me see results and stay focused.
