    Before I was working out with Alexa, I felt sluggish by 4pm! I had less tolerance for my kids and just felt tired. Now that I've been exercising with Alexa I have so much energy and no longer feel sluggish by the end of the day! She keeps the workouts fun, interesting and challenging!

    I had spent years working out several times per week (sometimes with a trainer) and seeing only marginal success. After seeing how great a business associate looked (who was 10 years older than I am), I asked if he was working out more. He said he was working out LESS. So I checked out Alexis and was hooked immediately. In a VERY short amount of time, I saw results, felt great, and looked better than I ever had. And I too, was working out less. But it is not just the workout, it is Alexis' knowledge of her domain, her personalization of every program, and her delightful way of motivating me. I owe her a great debt of gratitude.
