I always wanted to work with a personal trainer “some day”.  Well some day came when my reason for losing my weight and getting in shape was more important to me than excuses.  I absolutely love working with Jean!  She makes house calls, is also extremely knowledgeable about nutrition and behavioral issues and takes a coach approach for a holistic solution.
Jean was very thorough to find out all my concerns, desires and issues and made sure that they were addressed in every session.  Even better than that, every session was different so I never got bored.  Jean also gave me exercises I could do on my own or on the road in a hotel room to target my ‘problem’ areas.
I was also prone to a knee “issue”.  I had previously gone to an orthopedic surgeon who after looking at ex-rays and saw no real problem guessed that it was a meniscus issue.  Thankfully this came up in conversation with Jean who taught me about the importance of stretching the IT band.
My knee “issue” is now gone. Jean is a joy to work with, knows her stuff from all angles, and brings a totally integrated solution to the mix.  Oh, did I mention I lost 37 pounds in a little over 3 months? Thank you Jean!

I am 68 years young now. I needed an exercise and healthy eating plan that would finally work for me. I tried so very many and desperately needed something to benefit my active senior years.  I had been hanging on to 10 unwanted lbs. and yo-yoed them for years. That, however, was a small part of my problem.
I kept hurting myself with various exercise programs only to do no exercise at all.  I also still do physical labor with semi-retirement.  I would come home aching with back pain and get an ice pack. Just 1/2 day and my work was done and so was I.
I heard about Jerry through a friend and saw how her success with the training was making her into a new person. I started working out with Jerry in January 2009. Let the change begin.
He is teaching the right exercises for me.  I then started his weight management program.  I now come home from work with no aches or back pain and energy to do what ever I want or to do whatever needs to be done for the rest of the day.  I actually enjoy exercise now, a first.  I am just a couple of lbs. away from my goal weight that I haven’t seen in years.
I actually returned from a 10 day trip during which I happily exercised  and came home 1 lb. lighter!  Now that is another first.  This program of fitness has changed my life, mentally, physically, & spiritually. Looking forward to 70! ~ Louann Hatch 2009 ~
