Maki has been my Personal Trainer for five years now. The results I have achieved to date are largely due to Maki’s perfect combination of diverse training methods, individualized exercise programs & challenging yet achievable goal setting. Her professionalism, extensive knowledge and enthusiastic commitment to her work and ultimately her clients, provides the perfect scenario for success and sets foundations for a new healthier lifestyle. Having worked with other trainers over the years, Maki’s overall integrity and dedication are next to none; she’s the best.

Training with Maki has been the best thing I have ever done. She is always encouraging me to strive for more and try my hardest. The workout curriculum she has is intense enough that I always feel like I am working hard, but she also takes into consideration my overall abilities and tailors the workouts accordingly. Since I have been working out with Maki my overall strength has increased, and my endurance as well. The greatest outcome is that I have gained a new sense of confidence in myself that I never had before. Thanks Maki for being an amazing trainer and great person!

Maki is an amazing trainer! i have participated in her small group classes, and she always delivers a great workout! it’s very easy to observe her enthusiasm and know that she put a lot of planning and research into each individual class. It makes me feel good knowing that she cares enough about my success to intentionally design productive sessions, rather than just make things up as we go. I love Maki’s workouts that involve kettlebells and TRX… She is an expert in these functional, highly effective pieces of equipment. i would refer anyone looking to improve their fitness level or overall health to Maki. She’s fantastic!

“I’ve gotten better results with Maki’s HIIT program than any other workout program. I am stronger than I’ve ever been even though I worked out for years before this class. The workouts are never the same and are always challenging and fun!”

"Movement is a medicine for creating change in a person's physical, emotional, and mental states." --Carol Welch

Fitness Fact!

Change your exercise routine every 4-6 weeks to prevent training plateaus – For example, manipulate the training variables, such as the amount of weight, number of sets or repetitions and rest periods between sets and sessions. Changing one or all of your exercises can make a huge difference and give you measurable progress in strength, power and sport performance. Adding something new can also decrease your risk of injury and keep you motivated to stick with your exercise program. Keep your workouts varied. Have fun and stay interested!
