I have always been a person who loves to be physically active.  I jogged my way through my 20's, 30's, and 40's. I love cardio! Then, in the summer of 2014, I injured my hamstring to the point that I could barely walk.  I decided it was time to call Vanessa.

I went to Vanessa for personal training twice a week and did home programs prescribed by Vanessa.  My leg got stronger. Vanessa suggested that I join her fitness classes. I was reluctant to give up any running time, but decided to give it a try.  I loved it! I discovered that I liked some variety in my work out routine. Also, I discovered that the more my entire body was in shape, the better running I could do.

I love Vanessa’s classes because they are always challenging and you leave feeling like you worked to the best of your ability.  Vanessa always gives you three levels of options for each exercise, so you can work at whatever level you are capable of. She is careful to watch your form and make sure that you are not doing anything that will be harmful.  She suggests alternate exercises for people who have injuries to consider. Vanessa frequently changes her classes and keeps up with the newest trends, so you never get bored!

I also love personal training with Vanessa.  She always pushes me to my limit without pushing too hard.  She is friendly and chats away with me while I’m working. Before I know it, the time is up and the work out is done!

With the combination of running, personal training, and fitness classes, I was in good physical condition.  However, I didn’t look like it. In the spring of 2017 Vanessa and some of her clients did a photo shoot challenge.  I couldn’t believe my eyes! The transformation in the girls was truly impressive! I told Vanessa that whatever they were doing, I wanted to do that too.  Vanessa hooked me up with a nutrition counsellor. Vanessa started giving me work outs with heavier weights. Within just one month, you could see a remarkable loss of fat.  It was very encouraging. I kept following the food plans and working with Vanessa. By the time of the photo shoot, I had lost 30 pounds! I have reached a body weight and physique that I am proud of.  I feel lean and fit! I hope to maintain or improve upon what I have accomplished going forward.

I am very thankful that I have been able to work with Vanessa over the last 4 years.  She is a great support and makes working out fun. Her rates are VERY reasonable. You definitely get your money’s - worth and more when you work with Vanessa!
