Lenora is the kind of person one always hopes to meet. She's the girl next door- you know, sweet, empathetic, encouraging, and caring. But don't let her fool you for one second, she's also got the personality of a female Richard Simmons! She will push you, and you will rise to the occasion with her help. When I met Lenora through mutual friends about 11 years ago, I was eager to work with her because she was so empathetic and seemed to understand immediately what was holding me back. But I showed up to my first personal training session and found a fistie and incredibly motivated lady who was not gonna let me wiggle out of one single step. Very quickly my self-esteem improved, my flexibility improved more than I could have imagined, and I consistently met my weight loss goals! More importantly I learned how to push myself and how strong I really was physically. She helped me find that fighter in me hich has been burning until this very day. Do yourself a favor and pick up the phone and call this dynamite of a gal. Don't wait one more day.Jan 26, 2018
Lenora trained me for over a year, including while I was pregnant. She is super knowledgeable about different exercise as well as physiology. I highly recommend her for anyone looking to get in shape or maintain their current fitness level. She is also an ideal trainer if you have specific health concerns/issues - she goes above and beyond.Apr 3, 2018
Training with Lenora is a rewarding experience. Not only did she push me beyond what I thought were my limits, with great results, but Lenora added yoga, stretching, dietary discussion and body mass analysis for a total overall mind, body, and spirit workout.Jan 22, 2018
Although I have wanted to be more fit, I have a lot of pain in my body and traditional trainers push me too hard and I end up in more pain, feel unlisted to and quit angry and frustrated for the experience. Lenora from It's a New Dawn listens and has helped me get rid of pain I didn't think possible such as pain in my wrists that has kept me from doing yoga for years. I finished a yoga class yesterday with no problem. At age 56, I have lost 6 percent body fat in three months, (that's a lot) I am much stronger. chores are getting easier, food choices are getting easier (she watches your nutrition too). I find my blood sugar more steady and therefore my moods stable. In short, this is a trainer who has a customized, safe approach to getting healthier. I am doing exercises that I didn't think were possible for me to do.May 5, 2019
Before menopause I worked out routinely, usually in group classes. I didn't love working out, so the social aspect kept me going. During menopause it was harder to keep moving because everything hurt all the time - even walking upstairs became a huge effort. Then after menopause I didn't recognize myself in the mirror, who was this round person who had difficulties bending down to tie her shoes? I tried to resume working out the way I had in the past, but it no longer felt right. While I was determined to get back in control of my body, I was paranoid that I would injure myself in the process. I'd done a lot of research on the mind body connection, and I wanted to find someone who understood a woman's body and its evolution. I was hoping to workout at a reasonable pace and see noticeable improvements in my body. Lenora and I interviewed each other, and it felt like destiny - we clicked. Lenora's dedication to each client's individual workout, nutritional intake, and mindset sets her high above other trainers. Lenora is amazing. In conclusion, Lenora believes in me - and as a result, now I do too.May 1, 2019

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing depends on if client is coming to my home or theirs. It is higher for traveling for me. 85$ a session for personal training 75$ for a yoga session (private) 60$ for a reiki session ( this is not a class, it is an actual reiki session) There are discounts for packages that we can discuss.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I assess each client and find out their goals and needs and go from there. If it is a match we work together on obtaining those goals.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have studied health and wellness and spirituality since the age of 16, (I am 54 now) it is my whole life you could say. I am an RN, have many yoga certifications, have two personal training certifications, I have five grown children and two grandchildren. I record a biweekly podcast on health and wellness called It's a new dawn4u. I practice what I preach for sure, and want others to achieve that state of health I know is possible because the body is BETTER than a machine and I KNOW it is possible!
