“I have always thought of myself as non-athletic and someone who avoided exercise at all cost. I began working out with Dannielle after some prompting that it would be fun. I was nervous and a little embarrassed at first. She immediately put me at ease. The workouts are fun and challenging. Conversation, laughter, encouragement always accompanied exercise. She pushed me to do things that I never thought I would be capable. Through the time spent with her my whole attitude towards working out has changed. Meeting with a personal trainer used to sound like something I couldn't do, but I have learned I can do it and even enjoy it!” ~Melanie W.
“I started working with Dannielle three years ago when I was struggling to lose the last 15 lbs of baby weight. I found her to be a trainer of tremendous versatility, intelligence and discipline--plus she knows how to make a workout fun! She is an excellent motivator without being aggressive. She understands the individual needs and fitness level of her clients, all the while keeping in mind the types of exercises that her clients actually enjoy doing. With her vast knowledge of nutrition, she was able to gently guide me to better food choices that would help me achieve my goals faster. She motivates and encourages me to make sure every workout session counts. Three years later I am still working with her, not because I need to but because I want to!” ~Lisa W.
"Working with Danie has been a great experience. I started training with her over a year ago and she has made fitness as fun as possible for someone who hates to work out. I decided to find a trainer because my weight loss had plateaued and I was getting bored with only using the elliptical and I didn't feel comfortable in the group classes.
Danie is always prompt and very forgiving when I am not. She is very encouraging and motivating pushing me way past my comfort zone with humor and persistence. Every week she has a new challenge and I never know what to expect.
It is definitely never boring or repetitive. Danie always makes me think I can do whatever crazy thing she has thought up and never makes me feel inadequate or lazy when I am unable to complete the set.
Her nutrition knowledge has helped me restart my weight loss and provided me with valuable information.
Thanks to Danie I have started losing weight again, have more confidence and have started reaching my fitness goals." ~Melissa L.
"If you aren’t drenched with sweat when you leave the gym then you aren’t doing it right. I found this to be true after my training sessions with Danie. As a trainer that practices what she preaches, Danie knows the discipline it takes to reach personal goals. Each week I looked forward to her smiling face and her unique and challenging exercises. Through Danie pushing me and teaching me proper form, I was able to see results in my body that I was not able to achieve on my own. I learned that by incorporating core strengthening exercises in each work out just how important a strong core is for daily activities as well as overall fitness. In between sets, Danie would utilize the down time to keep my heart rate up with cardio bursts. I particularly liked the fact that her training sessions incorporated very little use of the nautilus machines which lead to exercises that could engage more than one muscle group at a time. Danie has a way of knowing what you are capable of and pushing you there to maximize each workout and achieve the results you want. I now view my work outs as a lifestyle versus a chore. I completely enjoy working with Danie and the results are amazing!" ~Meredith M.
"Three months ago I decided it was time to get serious about improving my overall strength to prevent injuries. I knew I did not want to use weight machines because I wanted to be able to exercise at home when I needed. Danie was the perfect trainer to help me. She is knowledgeable, friendly, and motivational. The training routines during our sessions seemed simple enough – lunges, squats, planks, push-ups, etc. – but the variations Danie included kept the sessions challenging and really focused on proper form to prevent injury. She knew when I needed to be pushed and when an alternate exercise was necessary. My strength has definitely improved-especially my core and upper body. It is amazing when you “engage your core” how much easier an activity is to complete without the chance for injury. Thanks Danie!" ~Terry G.
