I've been a personal trainer and PT manager for over a decade. I am passionate about transformation of all kinds..physical, emotional and spirtual. I believe in a common sense approach that combines progressive and traditional training methods. I believe that your success comes through my ability to listen and translate your goals and needs into an individualized approach. I own a company called The Results Factory where I support the independent personal training businesses of over 100 trainers in Los Angeles, so if I'm not the trainer for you, I will help you find the perfect fit. Please check out my website and send me a note. I look forward to helping you succeed!!

    In my honest opinion, Gretchen is a LEGEND! A true athlete, motivator, and knowledgeable professional. I feel so lucky to have been introduced to such a genuine person and consummate professional. I can't recommend her enough. She helped me drop 3 dress sizes in 6 weeks before my wedding and for that, she will always have "Hall of Fame" status with me! If you need someone to get you on the right track, call Gretchen!

    Gretchen has been my trainer for nearly four years and have been the best trainer I've ever worked with. She is very experienced and knowledgeable and is always teaching me new things. Her warm and engaging personality make tough workouts almost enjoyable. I highly recommend her and trainers she recommends to others!

    I've trained with Gretchen since 2006 and love her! She is goal oriented, listens to your needs, and knows her stuff. She is well-educated and can easily work around injuries or temporary requirements of her clients. She assesses your situation couples it with the appropriate work out/nutritional program and sets realistic goals. Above all, Gretchen is patient. If things aren't working, she reevaluates and attacks the problem from a different angle. I've had other trainers throughout my life and Gretchen is by far the best!

    I began training with Gretchen about 5 years ago and it has been a total success since that time.
    Her knowledge of the body and training for general as well as specific things was great!
    She devised a program for me to help improve my skiing, which included core stability and leg strength.
    I noticed the following ski season that I felt much more stable and had greater stamina.
    The general training helped me to be able to engage in sports activities that I had not done in years without any concern.
    I could not more highly RECOMMEND a personal trainer than Gretchen.

    OMG. When I was getting ready to film my first show- I had three weeks to get IN SHAPE. Not only did Gretchen enable me to accomplish my goals- she pushed me to set new ones that lead me down a path that has brought my love for fitness training into my entire well being. She is truly the best and every session I get with her (and/or anyone she recommends) is a gift. Worth the investment without question.
