Tawana V. McNeill, MS

Charlotte, NC 28277

When you do what you love and love what you do, it’s never “work”! I have had the privilege of working with 350+ clients over the course of my 5-year career as a Certified Personal Trainer and Health Coach. Playing an instrumental role in the realization of a wide variety of health and fitness lifestyle goals has been one of my greatest accomplishments. I have witnessed clients achieve consistent weight loss success, functional mobility after injury and/or disease, strength and speed gains and total body transformations. Having worked with clients of all ages and fitness levels, I discovered the one common thread among all is the deep desire for change. I'm here to facilitate that!

My approach to personal training is fun, high-energy and “tough love”. I expect accountability, discipline and consistency. My clients learn very early on that I’m “in it to win it” with them and my high expectations are almost always matched by their enthusiasm to put forth their best effort and live their best life.

I am experienced in one-on-one and group personal training, the latter being the source of my passion. My specialties include: strength & conditioning, athletic training, (rehabilitation) corrective exercise, PNF stretching and calisthenics.

    I am honored and feel extremely Blessed to have Tawana as my trainer. She is always excited and energetic and customizes my workouts to challenge me. She is hard but compassionate. Our sessions are one in which she gives her clients her undivided attention. She consistently checks on your progress and provides valuable information to help her clients to succeed. This is her true calling and she always gives 110% of her authentic self. I look forward to my time with her and my workout. She is an awesome trainer and even better as a person.

    I look forward to each workout I have with Tawana. She immediately took the time to get to know my body-- its weaknesses AND its strengths. She developed a plan for me that was personalized with my goals in mind. She pushes me always but in a way that makes me keep coming back for more. As a person, she's vibrant, energetic, and laughs with you throughout your session. She is there to motivate me and not intimidate me, but she's tough when I need her to be. Finding her as a trainer has been such an important part of my quest toward fitness, and I'd recommend her to anyone.
