I recommend Louise if you’re tired of working with 20-something trainers who can’t get you. With over 20 years in the trenches, Louise is up for developing a custom fitness program that’s achievable. How quickly is up to you, so what are you waiting for?! ~ S. S.

How many calories have I eaten today?  How many pounds did I lose this week?  Did I get in my 45 minutes of aerobics today?  These are all questions I dreaded answering over the past 25 years as they had come to mean failure to me on a daily basis.  I wanted so badly to feel successful. Louise met me exactly where I was in my struggle to see myself as a healthy individual.  She didn’t try to fix me as she knew I was not broken.  She didn’t put me on a diet.  Health comes from within and it is a way that you see yourself.  As you begin to see yourself this way, you begin to act accordingly. If I want to be healthy, than I do things that healthy people do. As I continue to move through this process with Louise, I am gradually understanding the full potential of my life and my health. I look forward to the many possibilities that I have moving forward.   Ahhh……peace!!!! ~ R. T.

Louise taught me the fundamentals of exercise, a gift that will last forever. She opened my mind to doing new exercises that normally I would not have tried. She is a coach, mentor and friend and she exudes positive energy! ~ S. M.

I started working out with Louise during the Six Week Summer Intensive program. She challenged each of us to keep a journal recording our sleep, exercise, food intake and energy level. The health journal has held me accountable to my exercise and dietary goals.  Louise did a great job providing individualized training in a large group setting. 4 of us from the Six Week Program hired Louise as a small group trainer which has been a great extension to the program.  As a result my exercise program has been intense, I have made new friends, I eat healthier and I feel great! ~ P.

After 3 weeks (6 workouts) of the Summer Intensive 2008, I had achieved a higher level of fitness (and really, what matters more; better looking legs) than I’d been able to achieve in a year of working out on my own. That was eye opening. She provided us with the skills and desire to continue working out and achieving a higher level of fitness. Her enthusiasm for how people advance in skill/fitness, and her ability to challenge you to a new, attainable, goal you can reach is amazing! The encouragement, guidance and, ultimately, success make working out enjoyable; something I never thought I’d ever say! ~ L. C.

How I describe Louise? Motivational, appropriately challenging, current in techniques and information, and positive and encouraging to achieve appropriate goals. Your messages are clear and consistent. I know that I can get a great, challenging (but not impossible) workout. You almost intuitively know how far to push so that we can succeed. You help me achieve more and live better. ~ J. K.

I am in the best shape of my life because of the training I have done with Louise! She is able to recognize my limits and knows when I need to be pushed and when I need encouragement. I have lost over 20 lbs of body fat and gained more than 8 lbs of muscle while working out with Louise. More importantly, I have learned so much about proper form, honoring my body and pushing myself beyond what I thought was possible. Exercise is no longer something that I should do but instead is something that I truly enjoy doing! Thank you for being such an inspiration!!! ~ K. N.

Louise has been my massage therapist for 8 years and has been my source of mental and physical well-being. My hour with her every few weeks is my time of complete relaxation, a time to forget the long hours of work and daily commute into Washington, and repair of the physical stresses of work and play. All I can say is Louise is the very best! ~ Dr. P. M.

Louise’s skilled hands have brought me much-needed relief from chronic pain. While she is attentive to where I am experiencing the pain, she consistently works to alleviate my discomfort at its source (which is not always where I feel the pain) which is far more effective. Her personal training expertise enables her to fine tune recommendations for physical exercise to support and expand the effects of massage. Her holistic orientation and insight into human nature are invaluable in helping me to balance body, mind and spirit. ~ S. C.

Louise somehow knows more than I do where my body needs extra help. She has helped me become more in tune with my body and to listen to what it is telling me. She has helped me to replace the negative images I had of my body with acceptance of what is and hope for the future. Through a program of personal training, regular massage and nutritional counseling, Louise has helped me turn back the clock by 20 years! I have achieved a fitness level and a lifestyle that will allow me to do the things I love to do such as golfing, skiing and gardening. She is supportive, encouraging and challenging all at the same time. She has helped me learn to make life choices that will lead me where I want to go. ~ F. W.

Louise? She’s knowledgeable, has a sense of humor, is motivating but not demanding, and recognizes individual potential. Oh, and by the way, my quads still hurt! ” ~ S. E.

You have my utmost respect. You have helped me so much and I am so much further along than I was a year ago. I never would have believed at my age I could do what I am doing. I really look forward to my work outs to push myself harder than the week before. ~ S. S.

Thanks for all you have done to help me. I am SOOO thankful for your coaching and wonderful advice. It has made a difference in my success. I can’t tell you how much the training sessions have helped me. I am hooked. I can’t believe the difference they have made in my physical abilities as well as the wonderful results I am seeing in my body. They have taken me to a higher level! ~ P. T.
