Janet has been my trainer for six months and my progress has been amazing. She started me slowly because I've been pretty much inactive most of my adult life. Starting with 5 pound weights and simple strength building exercises, I was barely able to last an hour without sitting down several times. Now, after six months, the only time I sit in our workout sessions is when it's part of the exercise. I've lost a total of 23 pounds and feel better about myself and my health. She has motivated me to strive to be what I can be, to be healthy, to make good choices, and has become a good friend. My partner and I truly enjoy our sessions with Janet. She's great!

I have know Janet for at least 8 years and she has been my trainer for the last 4. Her ability to recognize my strengths and many weaknesses as a client are extremely valuable to my health issues. Because of her health background, I am comfortable and confident in her assessment and plan of action each workout. Her calm demeanor and ability to get me to achieve my mission during my sessions is remarkable! I am not easy. As a former athlete and health professional I would Highly recommend Janet to anyone.

Results results results. Until I trained with Janet I never saw a difference in either my body or how I felt. After two weeks of training I had more energy, after 4 weeks everything was tighter. Once I finally got serious about my eating (took me about 2 years of training) I lost weight as well. Now I look as good as I feel. She keeps me motivated and interested. Love her blog too.

I was recommended to Janet by a friend who has trained with her for over 20 years who is in amazing shape. Because Janet had no available regular training slot she agreed to meet with me 3 times to write me a program and get me started. We started with a long session where she did an assesment of different ways my body moved, (found out my one foot turns out and the other doesn't), then talked a lot about realistic goal setting and how much time and effort I would really give to exercise. She then wrote me a fitness program (with pictures and instructions) and came over to show me how to do the exercises correctly. We met another time after that to make sure I was comfortable with the exercises. In between she has given me frequent e-mail updates to make sure I stay on target. Though I am sorry she can't train me regularly, I am sure I am finally on my way to getting fit and feeling better.

Janet makes exercise fun. I had always hated working out, found it painful and boring until my friend recommended Janet. I feel better than ever, and for the first time look forward to exercising. She is always on time, focused on me, and seems to have a new way of exercising every time we meet. I have become someone who loves exercise (I now enjoy walking on my own on days we don't meet), I have lowered my blood pressure and my cholesterol. I feel very lucky that she is my trainer.

Janet is the best trainer I have every had. I have trained with her for over 12 years, I have never been hurt and have had great results. I look better now than I did 12 years ago. There are plenty of days that I don't feel like working out, but at the end of every session I always feel better and am glad I did. She is very professional, but each session is different and enjoyable. I can't recommend her highly enough.

I have been training with Janet for over 8 years. With her help I have reshaped my body and gotten more energy. She keeps coming up with new exercises (she is always reading about fitness and going to conferences) so I am not bored. She is very professional, always on time, and a wonderful person to know. I enjoy every session, even when I sweat!

I met Janet while taking her fitness classes 20 years ago. The classes were so great I started training with her. She is an amazing trainer and person. She was one of my major support people during my breast cancer diagnosis and double mastectomies. Since then (9 years cancer free!) I am in better shape than ever thanks to her.
She also has a great blog; I learn from it every time she posts.

I have had the pleasure of working with Janet now for three years. I attend exercise classes with Janet approximately 3 times a week. She is very unusual for a personal trainer. Because of her health background, she has an RN and worked for many years as a nurse, she has an understanding of the body that most trainers, without her education, simply can not have. She has been able to tailor exercises specific to my needs and the needs of the other women in the class. She addresses our individual needs, our strengths and weaknesses, with sensitivity.

Janet is always prompt, always very pleasant, and always has a different routine, emphasizing different muscle groups. There has been an enormous change in my body, in my stamina, and hence my confidence, since I have been taking Janet's classes.

Janet is an inspiration. While she talks little of herself in the class, on occasion she will share aspects of her personal life. She is extremely fit, eats well, enjoys food, her family and lives a balanced lifestyle.

I recommend Janet as a trainer without reservation.
