She is absolutely the best. The extent of her care, devotion, and knowledge is truly second-to-none. In one word only: EXCEPTIONAL.Apr 13, 2017VerifiedYoung! Strong! Happy!'s reply

Tammy is awesome, caring, and dependable. You cant go wrong.Mar 31, 2017VerifiedYoung! Strong! Happy!'s reply
I truly appreciate your feedback, Andy.
My dear client moved south and I wanted to make sure he had good coaching in his new life. I found Tamara via Thumbtack and she was responsive, interested and engaged. I felt that she did not have an ego that would get in the way of hearing feedback. That's very important with a referral. My client (who has some medical issues and needs high quality personal training, including aquatic therapy) felt an immediate connection and it seems that all is well and he will get what he needs. This was a great way to help him and I was happy to find Tamara.Oct 8, 2016VerifiedYoung! Strong! Happy!'s reply
Dear Jayah! An assessment coming from a professional of your caliber means a lot to me. I am very happy that all three of us made this connection and I'm looking forward to helping Harvey continue on the path that you have started him on. An open line of communication is crucial to our success as a team!
Tamara is the best! She takes her career very seriously. She has sincere interest in my well being. She is extremely knowledgeable and is very forthcoming with information. She always comes prepared and with a progressive workout plan. I am seeing results and am having fun too!Aug 9, 2016VerifiedYoung! Strong! Happy!'s reply
Thanks so much for your kind words, Lori! It's been a real pleasure working with you. I can't wait to see how much we can accomplish together!

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?The rates for my sessions start at $35 for 30 min. Regular rate: $60/hr for a long-term commitment and $70/hr for a stand alone session. Rates for ongoing training in small groups: $80 for a group of two; $100 for a group of three.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?In our first conversation, I like to ask you some general questions about you, including your vital stats (age, approx. measurements), any physical or lifestyle limitations, as well as goals and some preferences. After that, I prepare for our first complimentary meeting using the information that I already have about you. I design a workout session that would best fit your needs and abilities. I also think of specific health topics for us to discuss, based on your interest or needs. I design our complimentary session as a “sampler” for you to experience my style of work and to get acquainted with a small fraction of the vast arsenal of exercises that I offer to my clients. The total number of individual exercises that I employ in my work is in the high hundreds (see the list of categories here). During the first session, I ask questions and make observations on your personal and physical needs and preferences, as well as areas that need to be improved. I also learn more about your goals, motivations and lifestyle specifics. Additionally, I perform a brief physical testing to determine measurable stats (heart rate, strength, endurance.) If necessary, I also describe various ways to find and sustain the motivation necessary for your personal wellness success. At the end of our introductory session, I answer any of your questions, and we discuss the training options and packages offered. At that time you will be in a position to make an informed decision on whether you would like to work with me on your wellness goals, after which we sign the client-trainer agreement. After our complimentary session, I work on creating your client profile that helps me design a general plan spanning the period of our training cycle. This plan briefly summarizes your current physical state and includes suggestions on types of exercises to be employed and nutritional advice with brief explanations of their benefits. The plan also states your objectives as well as tangible and attainable goals with specific deadlines.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Wellness has been my passion for three decades. A voracious reader, I continuously expand my knowledge base through extensive research on a variety of subjects, including mental/emotional wellness, psychology, longevity, nutrition, medicine, physical therapy and of course fitness. I strive to bring to my clients the best of knowledge accumulated and hand-picked over many years of rigorous studies: LIFE/WELLNESS COACHING: I focus my studies in behavioral psychology, have completed study courses with some of the best life coaches, completed an internship under a life coach and now ready to receive my certification in July. FITNESS/HEALTHY LIVING: National Academy of Sports Medicine - Personal Trainer Certification. Extensive training and experience in fitness, dance and holistic living sets me apart from a typical trainer. Aside from being a Certified Personal trainer, I have years of experience as a Physical Therapy Aid. I am currently working toward my Weight Loss Expert certification. I have a long-standing experience in areas like group fitness, dance, Yoga and meditation. I educate myself daily and have a solid understanding of body mechanics and metabolism. My other areas of interest are endocrinology, fasciology and physical therapy. I challenge myself to bring cutting-edge scientific knowledge to my clients, which leads to: variety (see below) . . . I'm thrilled with this opportunity to share my passion for holistic wellness, fitness and belly dance with my clients, students and audiences alike.
