What Karen’s Clients Say:
I’m so happy about the way I’ve been playing golf this year. I’ve been working out with Karen for quite a few years. This past year, I asked her to help me improve my golf game through our training sessions. Yesterday, I played my best game ever. I have seen a tremendous improvement in my flexibility and power. I know much of it is because of my biweekly workouts with my wonderful trainer, Karen. Yay, Karen!
Karen helped me get in great shape for my daughter’s wedding. I trained with her twice a week and saw great results. Now, I work with her to motivate me to continue exercising.
I have trained with Karen for nearly three years. She helps me improve my strength and endurance as I participate in increasingly demanding runs and triathlons. She adapts workouts to my needs to help me achieve results and avoid injuries. She does this by focusing on form and technique. Thanks, Karen!
I have been training with Karen for three to four years. I appreciate her approach. She puts the “personal” in personal training. She designs full-body workouts to meet my specific needs for strength and endurance. It is not a workout “routine.” Karen mixes up the exercises to better strengthen individual muscles as well as the entire muscle group. She focuses on proper form to avoid injury, which I greatly appreciate at 67 years old. Karen is an experienced trainer who has helped me remain fit enough to enjoy a very active lifestyle.
