Proven Success:
Kalise did a GREAT job on her personal training with me. I haven't been at the gym since my 40 year old daughter was in high school and I never knew I was doing so many exercises wrong. Kalise was patient with me, taught me to do things correctly, pushed me when I needed nudging and weekly gave me a rundown of what I learned so I could make cheat cards for myself.

My goal was to learn weight bearing exercises for my osteoporosis as I was scheduled to start a regime of shots. She took an InBody test at the starts of my sessions and again at the end. The results were confusing for me but my doctor was very pleased. She said she had never seen such improvement over such a short time. My doctor is familiar with AVAC and asked who the trainer was. She wrote down her name so I would not be surprised if Kalise got more requests for weight bearing training.

But the best part of this thank you is to report my doctor said I do not have to take the shots, just continue with my exercise program and see you in 9 months. That was the goal and it worked.
