Testimonials

I am, among other attributes, “body by Betsy”. The result of Betsy McNally Harris’ knowledge, skills and abilities focused on me! Betsy is a teacher by profession, a former gymnast and body builder in competition and owns a number of certifications in fitness training.

I trained w/ Betsy for over a year until she relocated. Betsy’s approach was total, individualized to my goals and what would be healthy for me. She attended to my body, mind and spirit. During that time, I added lean body mass; improved flexibility, core strength, balance, and my eating habits/diet; and would come away from training sessions, fueled by endorphins, and that delicious sense of well-being.

I give Betsy my highest recommendation as a trainer. Get your “body by Betsy”.

For the past two years, I have spent hours upon hours doing cardio on top of cardio. It got to the point where I would be working out 3 times a day just trying to “burn more calories.” I realized that even though I would sweat, my body just wasn’t feeling challenged anymore. I could practically run 5 miles and do an hour of dance cardio in my sleep. I was an athlete in high school and I realized that I missed the feeling of being SORE and worn out from working hard. So I came to Besty, and I’m finally feeling challenged again! I had no idea how to lift weights, but now I have a bunch of weighted exercises that I can continue to build on. My cardio is no longer long and slow, but quick and intense (and hard!) Also, being a vegan, I have always been concerned about fueling my body correctly for training – and Betsy has given me so many new ideas and recipes! I like to think that Betsy has helped me make a change in my lifestyle for the better, and I plan to keep it up!

Betsy, you are an inspiration to your clients! Not only do you give us your knowledge, you are there with us every step of the way. When I started your online 6-week program back in October, I didn’t know what to expect. I had no idea what I would gain from this since we were not working in person. However, what I gained was knowledge from a great teacher…and health professional. You made me look forward to the workouts and the meal plans you sent each week, because I saw changes in my body that I had always longed for. On your program I have lost over 20 pounds and have toned and gained strength that I have never had in my life.

Everyone has a busy life and mine is no exception, but you made it easy to put away those excuses and just do. Your program made me want to eat better, not only for me, but for my family. Your weekly updates were caring and genuine, and you my friend, are great at what you do. After taking two of your six week classes, not only am I still working out every day, but eating clean is now my way of life. I don’t even have to think about it or work hard at it anymore, it is just what I do. I have you to thank for how I look today.

Every once in a while you come across someone who makes difference. Betsy McNally is one such person in my life. I started working out with her few months before my wedding. As a bride to be, I desperately needed someone’s help to get shaped in physically, and Betsy did such a wonderful job to help me to achieve my fitness goal especially for my wedding as well as my perspectives on fitness and health. She was so supportive, motivated, knowledgeable and fun as a result she has truly helped me to look so good on my wedding as well as She has also changed the way in which I will exercise the rest of my life. I started to love my body as well as gained confidence through my experience with Betsy.

Betsy has been inspirational, motivating, creative and tough – not only succeeding in helping me to focus but stay focused. When I met Betsy she was able to read beneath the surface and recognize that I needed cheerleading and support just to believe I could truly succeed with my personal fitness. Not only did just I want to lose the extra weight I had accumulated over the years but I wanted to look in a mirror and feel good, go shopping and enjoy it and get dressed in the morning and be ready for the day.

Since I met Betsy 6 months I have accomplished things I never thought possible. I could not run 2 feet and now I have run a 10K with 10 minute miles. I was overweight and a size 14 and now I am really fit and a size 8. I am super excited to develop my body and build my strength long term. Betsy keeps me so challenged and interested. And when I slack off she holds me accountable. Betsy has an exceptional amount of energy and is truly inspiring. She knows her stuff, especially how to work with women and our bodies. Betsy is knowledgeable and professional and the best part is she is so fun to spend an hour of my day with.
