    I loathe exercise, my preference is a good book and a few bon bons. However, my doctor has a different agenda and he insisted I exercise at least three times a week. This is where Gail McGhie comes in. I have been working with Gail for a few months now in my home. I only regret that I did not start doing this years ago. First Gail has the patience of a Saint, and I also found it can be fun to exercise.
    I am eighty three years old. Although it has only been three or four months of a steady routine... I am already much more limber, I stand straighter and I can touch my toes. Getting up from a reclining or seated position has become so much easier.

    I thought I was in fairly good shape & I thought I knew everything there was to know about exercise & fitness until Gail ran me through a TRX workout. She breezed through the routine while I struggled to keep up with her (ego thing). Her knowledge of exercise physiology and her coaching techniques bring a whole new dimension of fitness training into play. She helps you to improve balance and fluidity in movement and flexibility while strengthening your core in a challenging but fun workout. I would recommend her to anyone who seeks overall fitness whether you are just starting out or looking for variety in your workouts.
