Teresa Rus

Sioux Falls, SD 57104

I developed a passion for living a healthy/active lifestyle after recovering from back and hip injuries due to a vehicle accident. I found a new love and respect for physical strength and mobility; not something to be taken for-granted. In 2004 I began teaching group fitness classes, which quickly evolved to becoming a Certified Personal Trainer and Yoga/Pilates instructor.

    I meet Teresa at a fitness class she was teaching approximately 3yrs ago. I have been with her ever since. She is a great supporter and trainer! She pushes you to the max, and supports you to the finish. She is also very knowledgeable in healthy eating and can help you with any questions you may have! I highly recommend her if you want to get positive results!

    I met Teresa when she was filling in at a Total Training class at our local Community Center. I enjoyed her workout so much that when I found out she was doing personal training I signed up with a good friend. She is helping me reach my goals. She pushes me at our workouts and she motivates me to keep going, don't cheat yourself. When I hit a plateau, we talked about clean eating and what I thought was eating healthy really wasn't. She helped me get my food choices on track. I can't say enough on how she has help me and worked with me. If you ever get a chance to train with her, DO IT. You will enjoy it and she can help you reach your goals.

    Theresa is amazing. I was unable to get up or climb stairs due to chemo and cancer treatment. It was a slow go and grueling at times, but she pushed me enough to be challenging, but not so much that I was totally discouraged. Slowly, step by step I now do strength training and cardio almost everyday. Today my husband was watching me and said,"you are amazing for a 60 something woman." Thanks Theresa. She is a God send and a blessing in my book. I highly recommend her to anyone that is serious about training.

    Teresa is exactly what I needed! I am in better shape now at 40 then I was at 25. I have more stamina and drive plus I am making better food choices for me and my family. She expects nothing but the best and wants only the best for her clients. I recommend her to everyone!:)
