Working with Mary Ellen as a Trainer and Life Coach I have grown in strength both physically and mentally. Coaching is a process where attentive listening by my coach and her guidance to each of the many topics we discuss each week has helped me overcome my challenges and self sabotage in working toward my personal goals. It's been a process and an eyeopener. I truly believe if not now when? I started when I couldn't think of a sit up or a plank . I'm 64 and I feel like 30. I DON'T TAKE ANY MEDICATION- I am short and curvy BP 110/70 I feel hiring Mary Ellen is the best gift I gave myself and my family; I want to be around to enjoy life in good health! The best investment in life is my health- I highly recommend Better Balance and Life Coach/ Personal Trainer I just signed up for a 5k the day before Mother's day with my 32 yr old daughter.

It has been a pleasure working with Mary Ellen. In a world of distractions couldn't ask for a better coach to keep me motivated and determined towards the goals I want to accomplish as she helps me to build the systems for it.

Maryellen is a true professional. She really listens to your goals and puts that at the forefront of her workouts. She is motivating and supportive even when you want to give up. I can't say enough great things about her. If you are looking for someone who challenges you and supports you throughout your workouts Maryellen is the one for you.

My mother is a 77 year old woman who just lost 145 pounds and had both knees replaced last year, so her mobility is limited but she wanted to gain stamina and strength through regular exercise at home. She absolutely ADORES Maryellen and says she's a brilliant personal trainer and an extraordinary human being who is helping her achieve her goals! Maryellen is incredibly encouraging and tailors each session to my mother's specific needs and objectives. She's humanistic and kind (you can tell she meets her clients wherever they are in their fitness journey without judging where they initially find themselves) but is extremely motivating and results driven. We have already seen some tangible improvements after only a few weeks. Maryellen has also given my mother a sense of confidence and discipline that has inspired her to work hard on days when they don't meet. We feel so grateful to have found this amazing practitioner!

I'm already within my 2nd session and I already see myself improving with her by my side pushing me every step. Words can't describe how happy I am so far.

FAQs

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    HCI Certified Life Coach HCI Certified Health Coach NCSF Certified Personal Trainer Red Cross Certified CPR/AED

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I wanted to get people motivated about their health and fitness. Obesity is a real problem in this country. Educating people on the best way to be healthy and active and fit is a great job. So many people want to do the right thing for themselves but just don't know how to go about doing it. I was able to lose the weight I put on after having 3 kids and I want to help others do the same.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    Make sure the trainer you hire has a certification. PT's dont have to have a license. You should look up the certification online to check for its value. Some certs you can get in one weekend of training. You want someone who knows what they are doing and who has been given an extensive education in personal training otherwise they can hurt or injure you.
