I started working with Val about a year ago. Prior to that, I had been struggling to regain lost fitness as a result of several knee injuries and surgeries. Not for a lack of trying, but I wasn’t seeing the kind of results I was expecting even 2+ years later. After working with Val, I am finally getting back to my pre-surgery levels, and have even surpassed “2017 Kim” on several metrics, including sprints. (I never thought I had a sprint before working with Val!) She is incredibly positive, encouraging and responsive. I know that when I have a breakthrough session, she is going to be just as, if not more excited than I am! And when I don’t have a great workout, she’s always there to point out the positive and provide some insights and motivation to kill it next time. Couldn’t ask for a better coach!
