Tina’s Success Stories
Tina is a great trainer. She knows how to motivate you when working out. She makes it fun. I do not like to exercise, but Tina always changes up my sessions so I don’t get bored. They go by quickly.
I signed up for personal training because I was extremely out of shape. After only three months of training with Tina, the change in my body, and my attitude towards exercise, has been amazing. In addition to teaching me the proper ways to use the equipment and demonstrating other exercises, Tina makes working out fun. Sometimes, I get frustrated because I can’t do something. Thanks to Tina’s approach, I end up laughing and accomplishing the task! She puts in a great deal of extra effort. Often, she checks in (via text) the day after a workout to see how I feel. Then, she makes any necessary adjustments to our next workout. Also, I travel frequently for my job. Tina has provided me with a set of exercises I can do in a hotel fitness center or my hotel room. This has been very effective in helping me avoid an entire week without physical activity. Originally, I planned on only a month or two of personal training. However, I added several more months of training sessions because of my positive experience. I am so happy with Tina that I recommended her to both of my daughters who now use her for training as well. Training with Tina has given my 16-year-old daughter much more confidence as a LAX player. This is not only the result of being physically stronger but also because of the advice and encouragement Tina gives her. I went from being an out-of-shape ex-athlete who dreaded exercise, to someone who is motivated to work out as often as possible. Thank you, Tina!
Before I started training with Tina, I hated exercise. I did not have confidence in my ability to become fit. Tina has been encouraging throughout our training sessions. She is fun and supportive. She encourages me to do more than I thought I could. Now, I look forward to training and feel stronger every day. Tina is amazing!
I started training with Tina because she really listens. She gets to know you and your needs. Every session with her varies, with challenges that have helped me increase my confidence, strength, and endurance to become stronger and healthier. Tina’s work ethic is highly professional yet personal at the same time.
Tina is great! She introduced me to a large variety of equipment and techniques that worked my major muscle groups. Session after session, Tina challenged me to push myself a little bit more. Week after week, I could tell I was getting stronger (arms, legs, and core), which further motivated me to work harder. I felt terrific when my clothes went from being too snug to being lose! And through it all, Tina was my biggest cheerleader– even more than my family! Thanks, Tina!
