    Heike is without a doubt the best trainer I've ever had the pleasure to work with. She's extremely knowledgeable, funny and empathetic. I have back issues and she was better than any physical therapist at determining what would and wouldn't help me strengthen it. However she's not just for people with injuries or those who need physical therapy. If you want a killer workout to get you into shape she can do that too. I can't recommend her enough.

    Thank you Beth! Baby steps in your training plan have given you much more confidence and strength. Listening to your body and taking the right approach each time will make your core even stronger. Keep up the good work and your body will respond the right way.

    I join a long list of Heike aficionados. I was with another trainer when I first met her and was immediately attracted to her by her sunny (or sun-like) persona and humor-laced quips. At that time I overheard her gently remonstrate with an elderly client who hadn't done his exercises; she was both consoling and correcting--a very fine balance. I thought, what delicacy and refinement, and yet bluntness! It's a form of love, this interaction, isn't it, so personal, so positive, so nurturing.

    Heike is a talented thoughtful and multifaceted trainer. Working with her has been a joy. She has worked with me since I conpleted cancer surgery, chemo and radiation. Returning to strength has enabled me to take back my life. She is a consumate professional and a bright spot in my day. I can wholehearted recommend her to anyone, regardless of fitness level. Anyone would be lucky to have her as their traniner.

    Heike is the type of trainer we all think we deserve but seldom get. She tailors her training specifically to the needs of her clients and keeps it interesting as she does it.
    She is extremely well informed and has extensive experience in Pilates, marathons and yoga-- she listens and adjusts as she personalizes each session. Plus she is personable and warm.

    I was having back pain due to poor posture and knee injury. In less than one month I have corrected some of my problems and have a plan to move to better health. As one leaves her studio it is common to see long term clients who praise her without reservation.
    She must be one of the best in the area.

    I am glad we found each other and your curious nature make our session all the more interesting.

    Heike is amazing. She is not only incredibly knowledgeable, but also extremely personable. I've taken other pilates classes in the past and have never felt the positions as deeply as I felt them when working with Heike. She makes tweaks that cause you to truly get into the muscles in the way that Joseph Pilates must have intended when his system was developed. Besides the overall fitness benefits I received, she resolved pain that I've been dealing with for 10 years that others doctors, massage practitioners, etc. could not fix. I highly recommend Heike to everyone!

    Thank you Ericka and it was a pleasure working with you. You are an amazing student of the Pilates Method.
