“Jocelyn…just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your class this morning. I loved/hated every minute of it! Now I’m actually tired and I have a whole work day to get through! Your class was fast paced and imaginative. I love doing exercises that I’ve never done before. I really appreciate the thought and preparation you put into it.”
“I started working with Jocelyn just to get my bearings for some fitness goals. It had been several years since I had stepped in a gym, and although I was physically active running, I was not as physically fit as I would like to have been.
I signed up for a few personal training sessions to get an idea of what to do and then I was going to do it on my own. Well, that was several months ago and not only am I still working with Jocelyn doing personal training, but I have now also started attending her booty camp!
And the changes that working with Jocelyn have brought about in my life have not only been with my fitness. She is so supportive and encouraging during her classes, that you can not help but walk away with more energy and self-confidence. Since I started working with her, I ran Hood to Coast, I got a promotion (and this was in part due to my new self-confidence), and am now two sizes smaller! I still have more goals that I want to tackle (a recent bear of a workout comes to mind), but I am excited for the challenges to come.
Jocelyn is what every fitness trainer should aspire to be!”
“I started working with Jocelyn in July of 2012. My new years resolution (which I accomplished) was to run a half marathon: my very first. Jocelyn was integral in helping me to accomplish that goal.
I love working with her. She makes me feel like I can accomplish any goal I choose. I mean, I ran 13.1 miles after training with her for three months. That is amazing!
I have never been someone who walks into a gym with a clear idea of what I should be accomplishing. That is, until now. Due to Jocelyn’s guidance and encouragement, I know what I’m working towards and how to achieve my goals.
I now have workouts that I actually want to do on my own (which, by the way, she sends in an email to me after each session). Moreover, they are workouts that I actually go and do on my own. All of them are effective. None of them are intimidating.
She’s top notch. She’s inspiring. She’s creative. She’s motivating. She’s someone I can’t wait to see on a weekly basis.”
