I am a passionate health and fitness professional and I love the type of work that I do. I have been teaching varied types of classes to different populations since 1987. Working out, sharing, increasing my knowledge,and changing lives though fitness is my mission. Working with seniors of all fitness and cognitive levels is one of my specialties. Acting as a driving force by creating new lives for the inexperienced exerciser, through personal training is another. I believe positivity and optimism are the keys to opening doors and moving on to the next successful level. God makes it all possible because life is a gift to cherish.

    Yvonne is the best, hands down. She has helped me become stronger and has kept me motivated to achieve many fitness and health goals. She always updates the class to keep our interest and changes it regularly to meet our needs and new fitness requests. Her training has truly helped me see results and stay focused.

    I hired Yvonne to work with my elderly and slightly senile mother. She was compassionate and thoughtful in the way she developed activities that would enhance Mommy's ability to perform activities of daily living. She is skilled, humane, and focused on the individual she is working with. If I lived in Pennsylvania, she would be my personal trainer too.

    Yvonne is an excellent trainer. She keeps me motivated throughout our sessions. Her routines are challenging, fun, yet attainable. She is always punctual and is considerate of our time. She is outstanding!!

    Yvonne is an absolutely terrific trainer. She works hard, creating a different plan for every class and every session, and constantly increasing the intensity. Classes are fast-paced, never repetitive, exhausting, and effortful. You always feel great the rest of the day-and sore the next. Tasking her classes has been terrific for me. In addition to being a great instructor, Yvonne is a person of integrity and compassion. I highly recommend working with her.
