Didn’t realize she was an athlete until she was an adult
I have been working out with Analisa for about 7 years. She is the first person who ever took me seriously when I told her my real fitness goal, “you know those people who get out of bed and WANT to go exercise? I want to be one of them!” She understood that for me the mental part of exercise is a MUCH bigger challenge than the physical. She keeps me going when I don’t want to. She celebrates my victories even though they are not running marathons or competing at the Olympic Games.
Oh and since everyone always asks if I’ve met my goal yet…”no but I’m getting there! Now I have many days where I want to get out and do something physical…and that is huge for me!” Thank you Analisa! For all the sweat and time and energy…and for being the one person in my life who really has helped me see my body as the vehicle that takes me on amazing adventures and not just seeing how slow I am and how many flaws my body has. It is the only body I will ever have. Thank you for helping me appreciate it just as it is!

1) Very much in tune with emotional/spiritual and mental contributing variables…you are aware of where the person is at.
2) Variety is key and you mix up the work outs based on goals and progress
3) You are fun, pleasant and great to hang out with…don’t underestimate this….
Lastly…push people to excel and tune into their internal motivators…..as you do that….people really respond.

Analisa’s knowledge of how to train, how to live a sustainable a healthy lifestyle along with her high level professionalism has helped me not only to become more fit, but has dramatically improved my diet and sleep. Her experience and focus have resulted in bringing a healthier way of living for me that was beyond my expectations. Analisa has customized my workouts, diet and sleep regiment so that they complement rather than conflict with my busy schedule and it has resulted in a more balanced life for me. By being extremely focused and dedicated she efficiently designed a thoughtful regiment for me based on my body type, my personal challenges and goals that I can fit into my daily life without complications. Furthermore, because of Analisa’s intoxicating personality the training sessions are upbeat, fun and something I look forward to. She offers her undivided attention both in the sessions and with regular checkups regarding my diet, sleep and overall well-being. With Analisa I have much more than a trainer. I have a better way of life.

I walked into the gym 9 years ago to get more exercise safely and I found more than I could have dreamed of in the experience of learning to move better and stronger!
At first, my goals were no longer feel sick and tired.
You’ve taught me what I can do to feel strong and well both inside the gym and in my everyday life.
I didn’t have any idea I could lift my body weight, ever. And I have now! I can deadlift, I can carry, I can always put my suitcases in the overhead bins while traveling!
Over the years you have assisted me through multiple heart attacks and hernia surgery. I am happy now. I am stronger. I have more muscle and less body fat. I can physically work harder and smarter than ever before!
I greatly appreciate my time with you.
Active professional, mother, and athlete.
I've been working out with Analisa for almost four years, and it's completely changed my perspective on movement and my body. When we started together, Analisa asked what my goals were, and I told her that I wanted to feel badass. Analisa developed a program for me that includes kettlebells, powerlifting, and boxing. Analisa was the first person to ever describe me as an "athlete," and her positivity and belief in my potential has given me confidence that, no matter what I weigh, my body is powerful and healthy. I worked with Analisa through my pregnancy, and six months after giving birth I'm stronger than ever. I love that I can swing a 48kg kettlebell and deadlift over 100kg, and knowing that I have that kind of strength has positively impacted all areas of my life.

You seem to have the right balance of focus and humor in your workout interaction. You have a way of making people know that you are really loyal to them and don’t see them as a billable hour each week.

When researching trainers, on paper you seemed like the perfect fit for Mandy with your areas of expertise and advanced study. When Mandy met you it was an instant connection and a perfect fit.
You have paced her workouts so she continually improves without “punishing” her developing muscles, joints. You educate her on why you do certain exercises and help her learn about her body and functional movement. You remain “in tune with her” and know when to not push and pull it back and just spend the day mobilizing. You train her with such care we have no worries when she is with you and no worries about the fitness path you put her on. You are a role model outside of her family of what strong and beautiful looks like and that it’s ok to be a strong chick….’cause they rule. You challenge her to do better and celebrate her successes as much as you let her know when she wasn’t quite up to pat. You have provided her an environment to reinforce our family message of hard work will always pay off. We feel blessed to have found you and are so thankful for all the improvements you have helped her gain.
