Where would I be without Valerie. I have been training with Valerie in both Cycling and Strength for the past year. My all-round fitness is grown in leaps and bounds….. or should I say lunges and intervals. I am stronger today than I was in my 20’s. (and I am a lot older than that now!) Valerie is always positive and encouraging. There is never a “weakness” but an opportunity to work on the “limiter”. She is excellent at describing each exercise and explaining what muscles are worked. Valerie is as excited as I am, if not more, when she sees my progress. All I can say is THANK YOU Valerie for being the best coach/trainer a person could ask for.
Working with Val is so wonderful! The 45-minute Full Body Strength classes are so varied and interesting (though quite challenging) that the 45 minutes fly by! Val manages to mix it up from week to week and makes it easy to follow her with cheerful and precise cueing. The Training Peaks app makes accountability come into play. It’s great that Val always responds with feedback after receiving an update on the app. It is a pleasure to work with Val and the program does produce results if you are consistent!
I love working with Val. She creates a safe place to share goals and struggles. Val creates workouts that are helping me meet my goals while also making sure that the workouts are engaging and that they fit into my lifestyle. I have seen results in a few short months. Val checks my daily workouts and adjusts them appropriately. Her regular check ins and constant encouragement really round out the whole process and allow me to push harder.
Val 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!
