I purchased Elyse's special from Living Social and can safely say it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Ever since I first started attending in March 2012, I have looked forward to each and every session. She is very motivating and creates unique/fun works outs that keep you wanting to come back again and again. She does a great job at recognizing when/where I should be working harder and when I need to take a break. I feel so much healthier and continue to get stronger with each passing week. Thank you so very much Elyse!!

Who hoo!! Best finish in a Sprint Tri ever, ran a record 5K at the end and actually had fun because I was so well prepared! Thank you to Elyse and Team Venus for the encouragement, support and diverse training. The Tri group was an incredible experience both in training and comradarie. I loved finding a group of women that are flexible, dedicated and motivate each other. Elyse provides varied workouts, expert trainers and knowledgeable advice coupled with a loving support that Im not sure any other facility can touch. I feel Elyse truly does this because she loves to teach and help others make healthy lifestyle changes and achieve their goals. Elyse is an incredible wealth of knowledge in many areas and her approach is individualized.

Elyse is a truly a beautiful person with a heart for the wellness of those around her. She walks the talk and has established Venus as a home for the health and fitness needs of females of all ages. All the programs are useful to those, like myself, who are looking for ways to be more healthful! I've especially enjoyed the practical classes on eating healthier---cooking with green, healthy smoothies, etc.--classes an have invited friend who later thank me for caring about their health. Elyse presents well-received talks for businesses and networking groups. Venus, and Elyse, are a blessing to many people in the Cincinnati area! We all have to be personally responsible for our health and Elyse works diligently in supporting us women to be better informed!

I worked with Elyse at her studio in several ways. I attended 12 weekly healthy weight loss support sessions and opted in for an exercise session with Elyse. She has great energy and appropriate sensitivity for all ages and abilities. She is highly skilled and is affirming in her training sessions. I like that Elyse takes a whole person approach to your fitness which is actually more of a wellness program. Venus is a great place for women to find their way to a healthier way of life.

As a former "gym rat" and fitness instructor, I wanted a great work out in a place that was more low key than the big gyms in town. Urged by a friend, she and I bought the Groupon and did semi private/group sessions with Elyse. I was pleasantly surprised by our workouts which were tough, but fun and basic. An hour went by so fast! Elyse is friendly, warm and supportive. She will give modifications for every exercise no matter if you are super fit or have never worked out in your life. Don't be surprised by the sparse studio...you can do a lot with those ropes, balls and pads if you know how! I plan on going back at sometime during the fall/winter. I highly recommend this to everyone!

I think of Elyse as my personal fitness guru. Her knowledge, support and raw enthusiasm have helped me train for a marathon and complete my first triathlon. Whatever shape you are in she meets you there and helps you get to your goal. She sees the potential in every shape, weight and body type. I can't say enough about how valuable her training has been and the confidence she has given me to set even bigger goals for myself.

I look forward to and participate in the "Fit to Fight" Triathlon each year. It is a very well-run event and demonstrates Elyse's passion for health and well being. Would love for her to open a satellite gym in south Dayton area (:

Elyse and her fitness studio are great! She is encouraging, warm and good at what she does. She has helped me throw a party, participate in a triathlon and learn tips about fitness and well-being. Go Elyse!!!

Elyse is my tried and true resource for all things fitness. I appreciate that she keeps her expert eye to the many "breakthroughs" in the health and fitness category, endorsing only those things that will truly work for her clients. As a result I've adopted many lifestyle change recommendations from Elyse on issues that I might otherwise not have considered. Elyse's innovative spirit ensures workouts are never boring. I love training with the Team Venus Tri group, there's nothing routine about the tri workouts and they're fun! Elyse keeps it fresh and keeps me fit!
