For a Life Without Limits
“I appreciate your knowledge and encouragement! You have gotten me over the hump of worrying that I would injure myself with any exercise, and I'm so grateful to you for that.” Leslie B.
" I trained with Gwynn for a year and a half and she’s awesome! She helped me get back on track fitness-wise after a move. She was very tuned in to helping me achieve my goals by designing a research-based aerobic and strength training plan just for me. Gwynn presented it in such a friendly, clear way—it was the perfect mix of learning, challenge, encouragement, and fun. Thanks, Gwynn!" Jodi W.
"When we met, I had never worked with a trainer, nor enjoyed or participated in physical activity of any kind. At 52 I knew I needed to find a way to be more fit, live a healthier lifestyle. Since day one, Gwynn has been respectful, encouraging and made me feel capable of achieving my goals. She keeps enough variety in our workouts to keep them interesting, and Gwynn is always pushing me just enough to improve. I think she is a wonderful, caring and conscientious trainer." Frances D.
"I initially started working with Gwynn in 2009 due to lower back pain associated with weak core muscles. I wasn’t looking to be a supermodel, but I did want to be healthier in order to enjoy my favorite hobby, horseback riding. Gwynn not only helped me to strengthen my core (eliminating the long term pain I endured) but she also helped me to see how balancing many different kinds of training could let me achieve a level of fitness in my late 40s and early 50s that allowed me to ride several times a week and begin to run 5K and 10K races. I trained with Gwynn for over ten years until her relocation to Franklin and will be forever grateful for her influence in helping me to live an active, healthy lifestyle." Gretchen B.
Client Success Stories
Can you identify a time:
When you got off track health-wise because of injuries or business?
Or perhaps you simply did not know how to begin an exercise habit that fit your personality and lifestyle?
Or how to exercise without hurting yourself?
Or when your healthy exercise habits simply fell off the radar?
What if you have no clue of what exercises to do, where to begin, or how to continue?
A client who is a professional educator and business owner wants to remain healthy and become stronger to enjoy her family and grandchildren who live nearby. She wants to improve in balance, mobility, and stability and depends on Gwynn to do her exercise planning for a full body workout session. Sessions include a warm-up, cardiovascular and strength exercises, and a full-body cool-down stretch. She appreciates clear explanations and demonstrations during each session.
What if you have a busy schedule and keep putting off your own personal health and fitness?
An executive works primarily from the corporate office, but also from her home office. In spite of her demanding schedule, she recently commited to daily walks on her treadmill at home. She is an accomplished equestrian and on weekends rides for enjoyment and relaxation. With frequent travel and lunch meetings, she does her best to maintain healthy eating habits—both on the job and at home. Her focus with regular personal training keeps her accountable to her goal of reducing stress by remaining healthy, strong, and mobile.
What if your healthy lifestyle is temporarily derailed by injury?
A professional woman transitions from physical therapy to personal training with Gwynn. At first her upper body work consists of the therapy exercises. Maintaining a pain-free shoulder girdle is priority, while focusing on improvements in shoulder mobility, strength, and range of motion. Additional exercises focus on core stability, balance, and lower body strength. Personal training rounds out her existing activities of walking, running, and yoga. Later, when she begins horseback riding instruction, she gives even more attention to improving her core strength, stability, and mobility.
What if your entire life been thrown off-track because of many challenges?
Prior to personal training a client has several major surgeries, a leg fracture, a move, and a divorce. She transitions from physical therapy to personal training with Gwynn. She is determined to gain general body strength and endurance, to get rid of her walking cane, and to reduce her isolation and depression. Working together, she learns self-massage techniques that improve her mobility and feeling around the surgical sites; gradually increases her endurance-- from simply standing on her porch--to walking cane-free around the block; and building full-body strength using fitness equipment that is transported in Gwynn’s car.
