Three years ago, I began Training with Nora. I was rather reluctant at first I might add. At the time, I was pretty frustrated trying to reach my health goals. I would have some success for a little while, but then I always seemed to have a set-back. I’d lose some weight, but then I couldn’t keep it off. It always seemed like I gained back even more. Then I’d feel down about it and it would be an even bigger struggle to get back to where I was. When Nora approached me for Training, I was really at the end of my rope. I had been going to gyms for over a decade and nothing worked in the long term. I was ready to give up.
Nora interviewed me and we began to discuss my “Health Goals”. I was pretty blunt with her. I told her that I would make her a deal; if she took my case on, I’d train with her for 10 weeks. I’d follow the instructions to the “T”. BUT, if I didn’t have results in 10 weeks, I’d be done with Gyms for good. She looked me in the eye and said “You’ll have results in 8 weeks”.
It was TOUGH! There was so much to learn. As hard as I worked, Nora worked doubly hard figuring out what we needed to change next, how to make gains, what was working and what was not. We both worked our asses off. She taught, I listened, and we WORKED! But she always made it fun.
The results have been astonishing! 10 week goals were smashed in half that time. Fat just disappeared. Inches came down, down, down. Muscles exploded. My energy level is a force to reckon with. Together we’ve run miles of trails, finished Survival Races, paddled across the bay, and lifted weights impossible for most. I’m still training to this day. I don’t imagine ever stopping. My goals keep changing as I reach every new plateau. I am the fittest I have ever been. I’m proof positive that her program works.
Nora encouraged me every step of the way. She showed me what was possible and helped me get to every goal. Her attention to “my case” is what made the difference. This is a true Personal Trainer. There’s no cookie cutter program here. It’s a program specific to your needs. In the end, you will find she is the most positive influences on your personal health. Her results are truly astonishing. All you have to do is listen and do the work. She’ll take care of the rest. – Chris Galasso
