Before I started working with Terra, I would only do cardio workouts, mostly because I didn't know how to strength train without 1) hurting myself and 2) feeling embarrassed because I would be doing it wrong. When I met Terra that quickly changed; I learned how to properly do a push-up, deadlift, and chest-press the very first day we met. She pushed me to believe in myself and go beyond my comfort zone and unlike other trainers, it was truly Terra's encouraging and motivating style that helped me do this. To this day, I credit feeling comfortable and confident in the gym to Terra. Terra also helped me drastically change my relationship with food. Before meeting Terra, I had tried almost every diet, and failed every time because diets are too restrictive. Terra helped me rethink my relationship with food, why we need food for energy, and that I can have any food I want--but in moderation. Her continuous checking-in and support, as well as informative videos about macros, helped me change my 15+ year relationship with food. Ultimately, Terra cares deeply about all her clients and she ALWAYS puts her clients and their needs first. Terra wants to help everyone reach their potential and help everyone get to a place where they are happy and feel in control of their bodies. If I hadn't met Terra, I wouldn't have lost 40+ pounds, and I would still have a negative relationship with food and a fear of lifting weights in the gym. Thank you Terra for your care and motivation: you truly changed my life.

Terra is absolutely amazing. I had always been skeptical about hiring a fitness trainer based on poor experiences around my friends and previous injuries (multiple right knee arthroscopies) but this was a life changing experience. She gave me the confidence to believe in my progress and push myself in a way I was comfortable. She’s very receptive and will really listen to you in order to better work with you in reaching the goals you set. My back and knee pain improved greatly, to the point that even the quality of my sleep improved from night to day. I highly recommend Terra as a fitness coach if you’re looking to be your best self and create healthy habits that you’ll find yourself adapting to in no time thanks to her!

I was working with Terra for a few months before the Pandemic took hold. When I began, I was overweight and very stiff jointed. I had trainers in the past, so I was prepared to work. The difference here is who knew working out could be fun. We did stretching, squats, deadlifts, beginner's push-ups, and my favorite; I got to put on boxing gloves and work out a little frustration. Who knew I would feel ever so much better after Terra's visit. After the city closed down, Terra and I continued our sessions via Facetime. We adjusted to this new world. I continued to workout during the week. Unfortunately, I lost my job due to Covid, so my world needed further adjustments which meant giving up any extras. I miss Terra and our sessions and the way she kept me motivated. Now, I continue to workout. I have a glider, tons of weights, places to attach rubber ropes that I can pull. I hurt my hip and spine but am on the mend. My doctor recommended a recumbent bike, and with hope, I will take off some Covid poundage.
