I joined the Center in July 2013 to get into a regular exercise regimen. I planned to take a few sessions with a trainer and then go on my own.
That plan changed when I met Barbara. Two and one-half years later, I am still training with her twice weekly. I have osteoporosis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). My goal was to increase my bone density and muscle mass, improve my posture (affected by the osteo), and improve my pulmonary function. Thanks to Barbara’s knowledge and dedication, my bone density test showed substantial improvement, my posture is improving, and my COPD is controlled with just a once daily inhaler. My muscle mass, balance, and mobility are much better than when I started this program. Barbara makes exercise enjoyable. I look forward to our training sessions. She always changes my program so the sessions are never boring. She is friendly and easy-going. Her focus is clearly on her client. She makes sure everything is done correctly to get the most effective workout. Barbara is such an inspiration! I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to improve their physical and mental well-being.
