Hi, I am Elyse Jarard, fitness professional and owner of Venus Fitness for Her in Cincinnati, OH. Why did I become a fitness professional? Because my passion for health and helping others get healthy is overwhelming and I can't help myself! :) My mission is to help women and girls to live healthy lives and help them disseminate this message to their families and future families. I also believe being involved in the community is very important and have started a beginner friendly triathlon for the whole family to raise awareness about ovarian cancer.

    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!

    Elyse is highly skilled and is sensitive to clients age and abilities. Her studio is a wonderful place to explore and develop better health habits. Elyse is very supportive and affirming what ever your ability.

    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.
