I’d love to hear what you have to say about training with me, taking my classes, etc. Get in touch and, with your permission, I may add your comments to this page. Thanks!

Having a weekly session with a trainer keeps me from having lapses in my exercise. In the past, I’ll get into a habit for a while, but eventually I’d start slacking and find myself saying ‘I’ve got to get back to the gym.’ Now I have to go because I’ve made an appointment, which commits me to going.

People may view it as a luxury for rich people, but if you think about it, weekly training costs less than some people spend on a week’s worth of cigarettes or a night out on the town.


I think of my trainer as part of my health team, along with my doctor, dentist, massage therapist, pharmacist etc.

I chose to start with a personal trainer because I was sick of always going to the gym and not knowing what to do. I was always focusing more on “I have to stay at the gym for one hour”, thinking the TIME spent there (sometimes just dilly dallying) justified my workout. I did my research on trainers before I chose Christie, and when I found her profile I just knew she was going to be the one that helped me.

When we met, I had just gotten engaged and like any bride to be, my first thought was ,”I need to get fit”. Christie and I talked about my goals and the plan to achieve them. After meeting with her, I quickly learned the importance of a lifestyle change, the importance of proper form, and the happiness of becoming stronger rather than just losing weight.

I have been working with Christie for over 3 months , she keeps my workouts fun and interesting by switching them up and keeping me aware when I slip out of form (fun fact, if its easy, you are doing it wrong!!). She holds me accountable for my actions and I can feel myself getting stronger, not to mention her positivity is so contagious.

Starting with a personal trainer was the best idea I had if for nothing else just having someone motivate you when you feel like giving up.

My trainer tailor made my training routine working around a non gym related shoulder injury.  I still was able to get a great work out while supporting the healing of the shoulder. It would have been difficult to do this on my own, and I may have continued to injure the same area.

On my own, I tend to reach a plateau and feel comfortable there.  I also avoid doing exercises that I do not like or that I cannot do well such as core, push ups, planks. My strengths get stronger, and my weak spots tend to stay weak. With a trainer, I am getting a well balanced routine, that is constantly changing.

I have been training with Christie for approximately 2 years, and I have yet to see a plateau.  She skillfully navigates me to help to get to the edge of my fitness level, and pushes me just a little more. She helps me to keep up with a changing target, minor injuries, energy level of the day, my goals. This is is the most fit that I’ve ever been.

I save time. It is the most efficient and way to work out. I think of my trainer as part of my health team, along with my doctor, dentist, massage therapist, pharmacist etc…I rely on her expertise and relax into the training routine of the day.

I feel great for the whole day, and the next day too.

It’s so hard to wake up early and go to the gym, especially during the winter. I know that even though in my heart I am motivated to go to the gym, it’s so warm in bed and another 30 minutes of sleep is always welcome.

It’s great to work out at the park during the warm months. I appreciate Christie’s inventiveness and flexibility in taking it outdoors.  She has an infinite combinations of exercises that we can do with minimal number of training equipment.

Big hugs and we truly appreciate everything about you!
