Motivation and spunky personality
Alissa’s Pilates DVD’s are awesome! They combine her spunky personality with motivation to create exactly the right workout in the right amount of time for my schedule. You get a terrific work out and come away feeling like you’ve met goals, worked hard, and had a good time doing it. There’s no one I’d rather wake up to work out with!
Back Pain and Body Mechanics
When I signed up with Alissa to do Pilates, I was skeptical that Pilates was a “real workout”. I thought I would do few sessions and move on. Well, it has been over a year now and I am still doing it. Two reasons kept me in the game: First, my back pain said good bye to me after 2 months of Pilates. A pain that I endured for few years was just gone. Second, Alissa’s knowledge not only in Pilates but in body mechanics and massage were of tremendous help to me when I managed to injure myself –a number of times- while lifting weights. Patiently and sensibly she worked with me to help me recover and on a number of occasions she adjusted the workout sessions to accommodate my body needs. Knowledge, professionalism and sensibility are what Alissa offers to her clients.
Arthritis relief and alternates for my age
I was over 50 when I needed to find a personal trainer to deal with back, hip, and knee issues caused by arthritis, injury, and weight. Because of her education and experience, I trust Alissa to help me get into better shape while paying attention to physical restrictions and without causing harm. She designs customized exercises to address my particular needs. For the first time in my life, I like working out!
