I join a long list of Heike aficionados. I was with another trainer when I first met her and was immediately attracted to her by her sunny (or sun-like) persona and humor-laced quips. At that time I overheard her gently remonstrate with an elderly client who hadn't done his exercises; she was both consoling and correcting--a very fine balance. I thought, what delicacy and refinement, and yet bluntness! It's a form of love, this interaction, isn't it, so personal, so positive, so nurturing.

Heike is a talented thoughtful and multifaceted trainer. Working with her has been a joy. She has worked with me since I conpleted cancer surgery, chemo and radiation. Returning to strength has enabled me to take back my life. She is a consumate professional and a bright spot in my day. I can wholehearted recommend her to anyone, regardless of fitness level. Anyone would be lucky to have her as their traniner.

Heike is the type of trainer we all think we deserve but seldom get. She tailors her training specifically to the needs of her clients and keeps it interesting as she does it.
She is extremely well informed and has extensive experience in Pilates, marathons and yoga-- she listens and adjusts as she personalizes each session. Plus she is personable and warm.

I was having back pain due to poor posture and knee injury. In less than one month I have corrected some of my problems and have a plan to move to better health. As one leaves her studio it is common to see long term clients who praise her without reservation.
She must be one of the best in the area.

Heike is amazing. She is not only incredibly knowledgeable, but also extremely personable. I've taken other pilates classes in the past and have never felt the positions as deeply as I felt them when working with Heike. She makes tweaks that cause you to truly get into the muscles in the way that Joseph Pilates must have intended when his system was developed. Besides the overall fitness benefits I received, she resolved pain that I've been dealing with for 10 years that others doctors, massage practitioners, etc. could not fix. I highly recommend Heike to everyone!

I want to take this opportunity to thank Heike for a wonderful year of Pilates. I am 85 years old and was concerned that the training might result in further damage to my already compromised spine. I needn't have worried. She was always very careful and devised her treatment plan to suit my particular circumstances. She was extremely knowledgeable and professional and helped improve my stooped posture as well as my general muscular-skeletal health. She did it with a pleasant personality that made the experience enjoyable. I had to leave her when she moved to a location too far from my home, but I did it with regret.

I came to Heike through an internet search and then interviewing trainers over the phone. She sounded very knowledgeable, tough but fair. I did not want to waste her time and am very picky about who I wanted. I needed someone that would hold me accountable, push me, but also understand that it took decades to get to the shape I am in and it was not all going to get fixed overnight. She gave me a new way of eating (not a diet), lots of exercises that I can do on my own, worked my extremely hard in our sessions, but let me also take a breather when I clearly needed it. I lost 35 lbs. and felt the best I had in a great while. Since I travel all the time, I don't train with Heike anymore (sad), but I am grateful for her time, attention, and for training me on how to take better care of myself for the long run. Thanks Heike!!!

Heike is a wonderful trainer. She pays very close attention to each client's issues and especially physical challenges. I agree with others' comments about her ability to listen and observe and the personalization of the workouts. Each week she comes up with new exercises to keep it fresh.

I have been working with Heike for about 9 months after deciding to give Pilates a try. I was immediately impressed with how much attention she pays to my individual issues and how effective she is at addressing those issues in ways that work for me. The hour flies by because she keeps me entertained.

Heike is very knowledgeable and great fun. I have neck, back and knee issues and she's able to work competently with all of these issues. I am very happy with the progress I have made with her. I feel and look better without a doubt. Highly recommend her.

Heike can tell by looking at her clients what's going on with their bodies, but she's a great listener as well as a fabulous observer. As other commenters have noted, she personalizes her work with each individual. And she comes up with practical ideas for "homework." She's also very upbeat. I'm a huge fan.
