Hope has been my personal trainer for the past year, as well as the trainer of my two adult children. She has been absolutely wonderful! She always strikes the perfect balance between challenging her clients to improve and recognizing their limitations. Hope also has a warm, caring personality. She is a great person and true professional.

-Melissa Lucas

Hope motivates me to show up [on the Fitness Floor] and follow instructions. I pay to spend an hour with a beautiful woman who makes my heart beat faster! The side effects include increased stamina, strength, energy, and cardiovascular health. I used to take three different prescriptions for high blood pressure. Now, my physician discontinued two of them and significantly reduced the third. I’m very grateful my wife and I are Hope’s clients. Our improved physical and mental health are a direct result of her dedication, professionalism, and competence.
