My trainer, makes me laugh, makes me stronger, shares her wisdom and is generally a beacon in my life. I always feel better after I see her.
I have had a roller-coaster of physical problems to deal with, but they have all been made easier because my trainer was concerned and compassionate and upbeat. She never fails to make me believe in myself, even when I seriously falter. She seems to intuitively understand that my highly strung, tightly wound personality trips me up once in a while, and sends me into a depressed state. She always helps me to climb out of that.
Equally importantly, everyone remarks on how securely and sprightly I now walk. As you know, that achievement has a lot of core work behind it -witness my minute long plank!
For body and soul, for humor and professionalism, for exacting standards and originality, she's the best.
