    I have been fortunate to have Christine as my personal trainer for several months. After an initial assessment of my health condition, she created a program of weight training and cardio that has steadily increased my strength and endurance and has allowed me to tone up and shed a few lbs in the process. She varies the workouts; educating me along the way about form, muscle groups, and equipment options. That education has allowed me to supplement our twice weekly in-home sessions with my own workouts. She leads by example, as the picture of health, and motivates me to continually improve. Christine has the perfect blend of professionalism, sincerity and cheerfulness!

    I have known Christine now for a few years and consider my workout regime as fairly serious. I tend to be a bit critical about trainers/instructors since I believe they need to "walk the walk" so to speak and pardon the cliché. She is the epdumy of a a quality trainer who understands the harmony of cardio, endurance and strength training. More importantly, she embraces weight resistance training that will have one of the most impacts in anyone's transformation. Although she is very serious and professional about her training, she knows how to make it a fun and enjoyable at the same time. Her own fitness level is very motivating which I believe is a major factor in keeping one inspired to reach their own goals. Thank you Christine for your help and inspiration over the years, for a great website and for your wonderful laughter.

    It has been almost a year since I started working out with Christine as my personal trainer. She has not only begun to transform my body but also my eating habits, my attitude on exercising, and changed my tainted view on instant gratification. I had gained 35lbs. in just over a year and a half and I was overwhelmed and desperate to get back to my old self. I started off with a 12 session package and figured I would be good on my own from then on. Much to my surprise, not only was I just beginning to make some real progress but I would look forward to every visit. Christine has an incredible way of making each session exciting and motivating. She can push me to work harder than I ever thought I could and makes it fun at the same time! I am learning so many different ways of working out that I had always been too intimated to try in a group setting. I feel very lucky to have found Christine as my trainer and a new friend. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

    I started working with Christine in March to "shape up". I have rheumatoid arthritis which makes working out difficult at times.
    Christine assessed my range of motion and developed a plan to fit my limitations. She offered suggestions for every aspect of my fitness plan, including diet changes as well as exercise. She encourages and motivates in a very positive way, always pointing out my accomplishments. Her knowledge and passion for fitness is apparent in every session.
    I chose to work with Christine at my home. She brought the equipment I needed and was always on time and ready to go.
    I would highly recommend Christine to anyone looking for a personal trainer.
