How did you get started doing this type of work?
Meryl was an Elite Gymnast for roughly 16 years. By the time she ended the sport, she had hurt almost every part of her body, gained a few pounds and did not like the idea of going to a gym to workout, because in her mind it was boring compared to practicing gymnastics as a workout.
Meryl hired a Personal Trainer after ending her gymnastics career to help her lose weight, tone up and get rid of some of the pain she was having due to gymnastics injuries. Her Personal Trainer changed her life! Meryl looked great, felt incredible and developed a positive attitude toward non-sport exercise after working with her Personal Trainer.
The experience compelled Meryl to share the same kind of life-changing experience she had with her Personal Trainer with as many people as possible.
Meryl is also a Nutrition Expert and Life Strategist.

Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
We are proud of every job we do because it's always our best job. We help each client set specific, realistic goals as well as decide on a healthy time frame in which to achieve them. We almost always help our clients achieve their goals in a shorter time frame than desired as well as transcend those goals, and we always have a fun time doing so!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Always ask the expert you're looking to hire why they do what they do. If their answer is not loaded with passion, wisdom and confidence, this may be a sign that they are inexperienced and/or unenthusiastic about their job.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
1. Am I willing to make time for a Personal Training, Nutrition and Life Strategy Program?
2. Am I ready to begin and stay committed to a change in lifestyle? All good Personal Training Programs help you develop a healthier and more fulfilling lifestyle and sustain that change for a lifetime.
3. What are my specific fitness, nutrition, personal and life goals?
