Fitness Training to Run a 10K

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.

I’ve been training with Betsy for about 8 months and I like to be challenged! With the techniques Betsy has taught me, I have toned and strengthened my body which I hope will help me to stay in shape for the rest of my life. I feel better, I have more energy, strength & flexibility. In addition, I’m more toned than I have ever been. I have a better understanding of how each muscle group works, and how to incorporate these muscle groups into my workout. Betsy’s an extreme advocate on how nutrition plays a vital role in exercising or simply staying fit. When I attend a session, I’m always excited to see what different types of exercises she has planned. I respect her sensible and careful approach Betsy puts into our sessions and always answers my questions thoughtfully and truthfully. She is upbeat, positive, outgoing, and pushes you hard so you can achieve goals. She’s been instrumental in helping me achieve my personal fitness goals. I would highly recommend Betsy to anyone looking to work hard for desired goals whether it be strength training, weight loss, or training for a sporting event.
