    Since working with Tarah and becoming 100℅ committed to my health I have lost 10lbs and went down one dress size. Tarah is a phenomenal trainer who understands the struggles and obstacles her clients face. She offers a variety of training and nutritional options, that cater to any budget. Tarah goes above and beyond for her clients, she encourages, and leads by example. If you are serious about your health and fitness goals I undoubtedly suggest you contact Tarah today.

    Tarah have me hope again. She was patient and very understanding. She gave of herself freely. Tarah was available day and night. She was more than a trainer she was a friend. She pushed me when I needed pushing and motivated and uplifted me when I met a challenge. She helped to save my career. She cares more about you as a while person than just getting to the size you want. I am truly blessed God sent me more than a trainer.

    Thank you!!! My goal is to ensure that you feel like a person/friend not just a client. I am a wellness business because I want to assist in overall wellness, not just fitness. Thank you for trusting me to do that for you.

    Tarah is an awesome trainer! I'm glad I found someone that to some extent knows the weight loss struggle and can relate to the time constraints of a working mom. She also knows the target areas that women want to perfect. It's not easy to find that trainee/trainer match, but I found mine!

    Tarah D. from Physical Vitality Health and Wellness replied to this review on April 23, 2014:

    So glad that you are pleased with your training! I strive to do just that!

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. Weight loss, postnatal and muscle building are my most common types of jobs.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. I would suggest that each client find someone that has a body like the one they seek. That is important. I remember some years back, I was looking for a trainer. Sadly, not one of the trainers in the gym looked the way I wanted to look. Also, make sure that your trainer can offer an individualized meal plan. That is important because food is a crucial part of toning up, losing weight and building muscle.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. I wish that I understood the body and how burning fat and building muscle works.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. We include a customized meal plan with every package to enhance the health and fitness experience. We also do some of the training sessions with each client. We want results and that is the best way to get them.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. The thing that i like most about my job is that I love doing it. It is not work at all. I enjoy seeing the clients joy when they see results, it makes me just as happy. I love knowing that what I do can make someones day a little brighter.

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. I always get asked if i was ever bigger or if i had any children. Yes on both accounts. I was previously 200+ the day I gave birth via c-section. A year later I was almost 160 and I am not a tall person. I never knew anything was different about my size besides the fact that my clothes were much bigger then before pregnancy. This February I had a body fat test done and it showed that I was 50% body fat. That simply would not do. I believe that in order to train the client, you have to have lived it. I've lived it!

Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?

A. I wish my clients knew that I appreciate them even before they are my clients. They make me a better a person and a better trainer. I even check on old clients that I haven't seen in over a year

Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?

A. Wow! I had to see the gym trainers that were not what I wanted to be. No one could teach prenatal and postnatal fitness with experience of their own and not one of the females had any muscle tone. That prompted me to stop complaining and do something about it. Getting certified and starting my own business because I wanted to be a part of the solution and not the problem.

Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?

A. Every 2 years, I must get re-certified. I am also working on certifying on being a wellness coach. I like to continuously keep abreast of what is new for my clients.

Q. Write your own question and answer it.

A. Why choose Tarah?
She started this business due to her own journey. She has an autoimmune disease that is considered rare and often called "the silent killer". After being diagnosed with over 20 disabilities and given 23 medications, it was time for a change.
Tarah decided to properly educate herself about vitamins, food and exercise. Doctors wanted to give a new medicine every week with more tests, but she decided that she wanted to live a healthier lifestyle. She understood that without these changes, she could meet an early death.
The goal is to help others understand so they will live longer and healthier. "I do not only want to be a teacher, I am a student always learning". A slow start is still a start. She focuses on the importance of nutrition because it is the basis of our lives.
She specializes in pre and postnatal fitness due to her own experience with diastasis recti (abdominal separation) after childbirth via c-section. She is dedicated to improving her clients' health and wellness through weight training, cardio, nutrition counseling and a regimented clean diet. Her goal is to encourage and empower!
