Success Stories

From Patricia Mair:

I started training at age 57 after a long illness. I was 35 pounds overweight and feeling pretty stiff and out of shape. In addition to my physical condition, I also felt mentally sluggish and extremely discouraged.

I decided to invest in one series of sessions with a personal trainer. Meeting Katherine proved to be one of the greatest benefits of my life. I began working with her and the first gift I received almost immediately was a wonderful feeling that YES, I CAN DO IT!! What a great motivator for the mind as well as the body.

When we were in session, Katherine was totally focused on me, as if my bulges were the most important thing to her. Each workout was tailored to meet my specific needs while being different and creative. If I appeared to be straining my back or knees in a potentially harmful way, she was aware of it even before I started to complain and immediately directed me to make an adjustment. As a result I experienced no injuries. The workouts were thorough leaving me feeling exhausted but deeply satisfied with a greater sense of peace and well-being.

In addition to the physical workout, there was another layer of personal coaching on diet and lifestyle. While I was groaning through pushups, Katherine generously shared her knowledge about nutrition and health. I gradually learned to create a lifestyle to support fitness. There were setbacks for sure, but she always helped me pull through. My success seemed important to her, and this care and concern lured me forward to my goal.

I lost that 35 pounds and now at age 60, I am still working out with Katherine. One package of sessions turned into three happy years. The highlight of my week has been the time I have spent with her in the gym. There has been much laughter and a few tears along the way, but she has been there for me, leading me to victory. My body as well as my soul has been revived. Life looks and feels so much better now.

I don't know how to fully express my deep gratitude to Katherine for all that she has done for me over these past years. What began as a professional relationship became a friendship that I treasure.

THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart!!!

From Aneta Piwko:

I have to admit that being a sports and fitness freak for as long as I remember, used to be (a little) self-conceited about my training skills until in 2007 my eyes opened up when I met Katherine. It happened when I received a complimentary 1-hr training session with her while renewing my gym membership in the now-closed 24Hr Fitness in Marina (if you dash through the reviews of the place you'll see how much the gym members praised her while trashing the facility itself).

WOW! That was a small revolution in the way I was looking at my workout regimes Katherine added so much variety and efficiency to my workouts, she understood where I compensated and helped me strengthen those parts of my body which were inhibiting both my general fitness and sports performance. And, on top of being the most competent and reliable personal trainer I've ever trained with, she's a super-fun personality. Never before have I taken so much pleasure in working out.

Because of my job I have to leave San Francisco for longer periods of time and each such period reminds me of how effective my sessions with her were because I always deteriorate physically (even though I work out regularly) and when I'm back she always brings me back where I want to be with my fitness. Who would have thought that me, a San-Francisco addict, will miss my workout sessions as much as I miss the city itself?!!!

I was so glad to find out that even though my old gym closed, Katherine has set up her own business and stayed in the Marina. I'm looking forward to working out with you in a few months Katherine and thanks for everything!
