    Diane Anderson is a wonderful trainer! I have a significant amount of weight to lose and am confident that she can help me get there with the workouts she designed and her encouraging, patient, and fun approach to fitness. I used to hate moving, but now I look forward to every workout-- even challenging ones. Diane is extremely knowledgable, dedicated to your goals, and nonjudgmental as well. She also makes sure I am pain free...we do appropriate stretches and use techniques like MELT to prevent injuries & alleviate pain. She's a blast! Working out with Diane if you have the opportunity!

    I've worked with a lot of fitness instructors, and Diane is by far the best instructor I've had the pleasure of training under. She is encouraging, pushes you to work hard, and always comes into the workout with something new for you to try. But perhaps what puts her above and beyond other trainers is her commitment to the rehabilitation and safety of her clients. I've called her plenty of times when I hurt something and she walks me through how to take care of myself with gentle exercises. Training with Diane has transformed my body and I strongly recommend her!

    I am so fortunate to have worked with Diane before and after having both knees replaced. I put off the needed surgeries for years because so many people had told me about the horribly painful surgery and recovery process. As suggested in a book, I started working with Diane about 6 months before the surgery. The workouts were increasingly challenging and she was delightful. The surgeries were very successful with very little pain and very quick recovery compared to others in my knee replacement group. I am convinced my body easily handled surgery because of her workouts. Easy peasy! I highly recommend Diane's tailor-made workouts whether you are in shape or not - she can get you in shape no matter where you are on the spectrum.

    Diane was my personal trainer for over three years and I enjoyed every single session I worked with her. She is a true knowledgable professional, a great inspiration to many people who truly cares for everyone she works with. She has challenged and motivated me regularly. She is amazing, I would highly recommend her.
