I connected with Leslie through this website, and words can hardly express how grateful I am to have met and hired her. Leslie is everything I was looking for in a personal trainer, and so much more. She has a vast working knowledge of anatomy and kinesiology. Her ability to individualize your program, and keep you completely safe while also thoroughly challenging you, is simply unparalleled. I would not hesitate to recommend her to practically anyone, whether 20 or 90, athlete and gym rat or completely new to exercise, dealing with an illness or injury or in top shape. Leslie excels in her effort and ability to appraise her clients individual and evolving needs. When it comes to physical training, she knows what I need before I do. Not only that, but Ive found the same sometimes holds true on a mental and emotional level as well; in the short time Ive been working with her, Ive gained more useful insight than perhaps Ive ever gotten from any therapist or teacher. Ive quickly come to consider Leslie a friend and mentor on top of being an invaluable trainer. Truly an ace personal trainer and a gem of a person.Mar 27, 2016Verified
Leslie is very easy to work with.. I was generally apprehensive to working with a personal trainer, but I found working with Leslie to be very encouraging. I have acquired some really beneficial workout/eating regimes that I wouldn't have without her support.Dec 20, 2017
Leslie was my personal trainer for several months at my local gym. Besides being very personable she was a very effective trainer. Not only did she continue to build my overall body strength & muscle tone she really educated me on the importance of stretching. She showed me several stretches to incorporate before, during and after my workouts. To this day I continue to follow her techniques in my daily routine. Leslie is an effective and conscientious trainer.Feb 20, 2016
Leslie Hughes was my personal trainer for almost a year. During that time I was having some difficulties with a shoulder problem and was taking physical therapy as well. Leslie was very good to teach me stretches and non-weight bearing exercises that were a tremendous help during that time. I work full-time and she was very helpful in scheduling our sessions to fit my needs. I would highly recommend her as a personal trainer. Vivian SmithFeb 13, 2016

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I focus on one-on-one training and generally charge $40 per session for this individual one-hour training. However, I do a free one hour consultation before we start. I really like to sit down and get to know my clients, make sure we have a comfortable relationship. This consultation will include a general conversation, a health history questionnaire, as well as family history and medication. Things I will need to know before we begin the workout sessions, and to ultimately help you achieve your goals. We then assess the situation as a whole, and are open to negotiation.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?All of my service is centered on the convenience of the client Our first visit together is always a free consultation that includes a very detailed health history questionnaire. Then I like to take it a step further; my assessments also include the emotional, spiritual and environmental aspects of the clients life.
