    Dynamic, energetic, super-knowledgeable and dedicated! Joanna is fabulous on focusing on the specific needs of her clients as individuals, from their health risks to their desired outcomes. In a very short time, I have gone from being disturbed by that middle-age "muffin-top" to having a strong core and a much improved body image. Thank you, Joanna, for your tireless commitment on behalf of your clients' well-being!

    I worked out with Joanna for six months and enjoyed every sessions. Joanna is very knowledgeable and understands the individual needs of her clients...even as they change, she changes with me! I will recommend Joanna to others in the future!

    Joanna is like no other. Her credentials and professionalism speak to
    her expertise; combine this with her talent and it sets her aside from
    other fitness professionals. Joanna puts together the most creative
    and enthusiastic workouts – you will love the results and feel
    marvelous afterwards! I never get bored with my workouts and Joanna
    inspires me to want to do better and be stronger. Motivation is the
    key to maintaining any workout and believe it or not, with Joanna, you
    never want to stop!

    Making the commitment to personal training with Joanna is the best decision I have made for myself in years! As a woman in my early 40s, weight gain is a never ending battle. And I was finding that all of my “go to” exercises and routines that had helped me over the years just didn’t seem to work any longer. I had been looking for a Pilates instructor for a very long time but could not find anyone close enough to home to fit into my schedule. So I was so ecstatic to find Joanna! Although I had never used a reformer, as soon as I started my sessions I knew I had found my niche. Within just a few weeks, I started to feel like my old self again. I have gained strength in areas of my body that I thought were unattainable at my age. And I enjoy these workouts! It’s precious time that I set aside just for me and I leave feeling empowered. Joanna is very encouraging and customizes routines based on my personal needs. She is always flexible and works with me to accommodate scheduling. I highly recommend Joanna, regardless of your age or gender, as she can help make a real difference in your health and overall happiness.
