What Angela’s Clients Say:
Angela has been my trainer since last November. She is terrific! Angela always gives me a challenging new routine. I’ve gained a lot of strength and stamina. I came in as an elderly couch potato and now, well, I’m an athlete! She encourages me, and checks in with me often. She even called me on my birthday. At my first nurse evaluation, I learned I gained five pounds of lean body mass. I also lost 2.5 percent of my body fat. I’ve got lots of energy now. I don’t huff and puff, even after a two-mile walk. Everybody should have Angela as a trainer!
Since taking Aquakinetics with Personal Trainer Angela, my chronic back pain and arthritis have improved greatly. I always accomplish a good workout at Aquakinetics.
When I joined the Center, my goals were to get in shape and learn how to use different exercise equipment. I began training with Angela. We have met every week for nearly 1.5 years. Although I feel very comfortable with the fitness equipment now, I continue to train with Angela because she helps me stay motivated with her kindness and persistent fitness suggestions. Every time I accomplish a fitness goal, she inspires and challenges me with a new one. I have surpassed my initial goals and expectations. I continue to look forward to each session with Angela. I highly recommend her!
-Personal Training Client
I am a senior who began working with Angela two years ago. I lost 16 pounds and was delighted with my success. I loved working with her. Then, I was sidelined with a serious heart issue. I had to be away from the Center for 15 months. When I returned, I resumed my workouts in the therapy pool. I was told to start with five minutes twice a week. By the end of eight weeks, Angela helped me manage 30-45 minutes in the pool. I was amazed by how my endurance, muscle tone, and balance improved. Now, I work out on the Fitness Floor again. I strongly recommend the therapy pool to anyone with medical issues or balance problems. And, Angela is the best!
After several years of membership, I am finally taking advantage of it! This miracle is thanks to Angela as my personal trainer. Angela is dedicated to helping me improve my health through exercise. She also provides advice on making better food choices. She helps me stay focused on my fitness goals. As I grow older, I want to stay active and strong for myself, my family, and whatever comes into my life. My stamina and strength have improved immensely. Angela is kind and helpful. She gently challenges me beyond what I thought I could achieve. She helped me see the tremendous value in exercise. Her knowledge and expertise have been invaluable to my physical and mental health.
