Her caring nature, professionalism, knowledge, expertise and love of her work is a joy for all of us who train with Audrey. I admire her sense of responsibility, ability to figure out how to work around inabilities (was going to use disabilities but don't like that term), and above all to count to 10 or 12 or 15 or 20 while taking notes. Thank goodness for your sense of humor which make the time more like play than work! ~ Helen L
I met Audrey when I decided that I needed to work with someone who could help me get into shape without injuring myself. Well, I got much more than I bargained for...I got not only a trainer but a nutrition counselor, a health services referral specialist and most importantly a new friend. Audrey has helped me to be a healthier me and taught me how to work my body so that I'm now stronger than I've ever been in my life...I still see muscle formations that I never knew I could have! I also feel that the physical strength has helped me emotionally, reminding me of just how strong a person I am and building my confidence in myself. Audrey has been witness to some major changes in my life...marriage, retiring from a job she had to listen to me bitch about on a regular basis...and has provided a source of stability for me. ~ Caryn S
I was rehabbing my shoulder for the 3rd time and had reached the point where I could actually start hitting tennis balls again but was hesitant to do so. She told me to wait a minute, then went out to her car and returned with 2 tennis racquets and a ball. We then went outside and played a little light hitting which prompted me to realize that I was indeed strong enough to return to the courts. I had healed, and Audrey had demonstrated it without chewing my ear on why didn't I just go out and play. She is positive energy and certainly made a difference in my life. ~ Brooks G
A few years back I found myself dealing with severe leg and back pain. I was completely incapacitated, and the worst part was, my doctor couldn't figure out what was wrong. I had MRIs. X-Rays. Multiple exams. I took painkillers. Went to rehab. Nothing made sense, nothing helped. A few weeks later, I mentioned to Audrey that I still had pain and numbness in my leg. She said, "It sounds like you have nerve damage. You need to see a neurologist." No one had mentioned this possibility to me before. So I went to the neurologist. Guess what: I had nerve damage! Good thing l went to the neurologist and finally got some help. Good thing I had a trainer creative enough to put the pieces together! ~ Pam K
10 years ago I could barely curl 6lb weights. This morning I hauled about 20 armfuls of wet wood into the house for our stove and barely broke a sweat. Thank you Audrey for the amazing strength training this the past decade!!! I'm still surprised at how strong I am and how much I can do without fear of injury. ~ Bonnie M
Our primary care physician recommended that we see Audrey to help with various health issues. We have enjoyed Audrey’s home visits for more than two years and find her reliable, knowledgeable and an all-around great person. She has the ability to change an exercise plan at a moment’s notice if needed, and has creative ways of getting around conditions such as arthritis to avoid pain. As a matter of fact, her training is making the arthritis much LESS painful! We think her experience is one of her best assets, as is the fact that she will come to our home, so there is no way we can procrastinate and put off our exercise. ~ Doug & Janet M
'You can do ANYTHING for 30 seconds'
'You've GOT this'
'Get out of your head, don’t worry what it looks like and JUST DO IT'
All these words of encouragement make my training sessions with Audrey sound like a carefully scripted TV commercial. But it always WORKS! I was tentative and nervous when I first started training with Audrey. I still remember how unskilled & exhausted I was at first (and it was only a 1/2 hour session). Audrey has a unique ability to make me feel like a seasoned athlete and that is what got me hooked! The convenience of having her come to my house is a huge bonus and because we work in a small-ish space, there is no time wasted in transition from one piece of equipment to another. Audrey watches me very carefully while I'm doing an exercise which I find incredibly reassuring. My fitness level has improved tremendously and it's great fun to be coached by someone who seems to have an unlimited "bag of tricks" in her wheelhouse. It’s always good, hard work and never boring. ~ Nancy R
