“Theresa is a dedicated professional who knows how to get results in a positive way. She pushes me to achieve my best conditioning, but is always mindful of safety and will work around any temporary limitations that I might have. I would give Theresa 5 stars as a personal trainer!”
“Before I started training with Mike I spent years in group fitness classes that required constant modification with limited results. My back problems necessitated that I scale back most exercises and I had all but resigned myself to avoiding some altogether. Mike listened to my needs, researched my back condition, and helped me target my tight and weak areas to build strength where I needed it most. Mike’s curiosity, enthusiasm, and good humor makes our training sessions challenging and fun. I knew that I had made real progress when I could do over 10 pushups in a row – one of my previously “off-limits” exercises.”
“I was looking for a way to build a fitness routine that would become an internal part of my life. I had tried many modalities: gym, classes, DVDs, YouTube, but none of them stuck until I could Theresa. She has excellent intuition, patience and a genuine positive approach to fitness. I also really enjoy her holistic attitude regarding healthy living. No matter what level of fitness or type of training you seek, I can tell you that Theresa will do all she can to tailor her skills and gifts to support you in your goals.”
“I started training with Mike when I was exhausted from too much training and poor nutrition. My aerial progress had stalled, and I thought that more training was the answer. Mike created a plan for me that emphasized core strength, shoulder health, and working smarter not harder. He was detailed and patient while explaining the “why” behind my questions and I learned a lot about how my body moves and recovers. When we paired this with nutrition coaching, I saw solid gains. Over the last year, my inversions have gone from shaky to strong, my endurance in the air has increased from 2 minutes to 10, and I feel stronger, healthier, and more knowledgeable. Even my sleep has improved! I can’t recommend Mike enough. Work with him—your body will thank you!”
“I have been working out with Theresa for several years now. She started training me in circus when I was visiting Boston one summer. After training with her I realized my body had never felt as strong or as flexible before that I decided to continue training with her after returning home to the UAE online… Recent years I have been very interested in holistic health and how our life style from what we eat to how much we move effects the overall health. What’s very impressive for me in Theresa is her knowledge of human body as well as her background in nutrition. During our sessions she informs me regularly on each of the muscles we work with and their functions and how they relate to one another. I can ask her about my diet and get great advice. In addition to all this she’s very relatable and cares. It’s great to be training with someone who remembers details about me and prepares a program for me. Last couple of years she also tailored our sessions preparing me for pregnancy and later for postpartum. Because of my age I was worried how my body would take delivery and difficult task of caring for an infant. I honestly think as a result of working out regularly with her before delivery and later gently introducing workout after delivery and during nursing I feel in great shape now!!!”
“I’ve experienced a ton of success with Theresa & Mike working out with them in semi-private [small group] trainings. I felt like my next step in self-improvement was to start changing my nutrition. I’ve spent most of my adult life eating whatever gave me that instant gratification. I knew that I should be eating more vegetables and leaner meats and less sugar and fats. However, any diets I started would quickly fizzle out once I got bored or wouldn’t see any quick results.
From the beginning Theresa has met me where I am at. We started with a simple process of just tracking what I was eating to see where we could make minor tweaks and start developing better habits. When I’ve been ready, she will add on another manageable piece to focus on. I’ve found that these steps are all much easier to become habit forming to the point it’s not work.
One of my biggest challenges is my hatred for meal planning and trying to decide on what I might want to eat days from now. I always thought of veggies as a side dish and not something specific in my diet. Theresa has helped by providing me with different handouts and links to meal planning and recipe to try and expand my horizons.
After weeks of focused and intentional eating I’m feeling much more alert and energetic. I can tell when I’m getting the nutrients I need versus eating junk food and feeling lethargic and unwell. I recently had to wear a suit and after dropping 4 pants sizes, all my suits are too big! I’ve never had this problem in my life before and it’s the best problem I’ve ever had.”
“Theresa’s fitness class has refined my technique and pushed me beyond any core routine I’ve ever done. I have been taking her class for a year and I’ve noticed a huge increase in strength, but it’s helped me manage and avoid injuries. Theresa’s detailed instructions have helped me pinpoint areas that I’ve been neglecting and get the most out of the hour workout.”
“My fitness level is better than it has ever been. Mike also addressed the pain in my shoulder that I assumed was permanent and I am now pain-free, which is incredible.”
Mike’s calm demeanor, intense focus on technique and knowledge of human anatomy set him apart from other trainers. His workouts are always evolving and building on each other. I could not be happier working with Mike and highly recommend him as a trainer.
