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.
