Fitness Knowledge, Skills and Abilities

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”.

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.
