I am 49 years old and have been struggling with my weight and body image since I was a teenager and frankly it has become exhausting. I have literally tried every fad diet that has been marketed in the past 30 years, and while many of them offered quick weight loss results, not one of them made me healthier or stronger, or became a lifestyle that provided lasting change. While I was not necessarily looking for a personal trainer or a nutrition coach when a friend referred me to Sandy, my mindset was that I could not leave any stone unturned when it came to my body issues. I have been training with Sandy for eight months and I have enjoyed our time together immensely! Sandy encouraged me from the beginning to set my goals and reach toward them on a daily basis. One of my goals was to be able to be a testimonial on her website and I am thrilled to say that Sandy has helped me achieve this goal. I have lost 14 pounds and have gone from 28% body fat to 17% body fat. I have strength and definition in my muscles. I am eating whole foods, preparing my foods in a healthier fashion and working out regularly. Sandy tailored my fitness program to meet my individual needs. She customized my nutrition plan to meet my finicky tastes while staying within healthy guidelines. She also supplied me with a home aerobic and weight program that I can use when I am no longer meeting with her. Sandy was always available to answer questions by phone or email and she gave me the accountability and frequent encouragement that I needed as my own worst critic. While I still have a couple of more goals in sight, Sandy has provided me with the tools and mindset that I need to move forward in a healthy and positive fashion. Sandy became more than my mentor, she became a dear friend, and I would highly recommend her services to anyone who thinks their goals are unattainable, because she will help you make them a reality.
