Diane, by Robin K.
My husband Fred & I moved to Bainbridge Island part time in 2005. He joined Island Fitness and I joined several years later. A few years ago Fred started working out 3x/week with Gavin. We could both see a difference in general health & body stability.
I continued on 3 machines halfheartedly, and continued to gain weight and inches yearly. This past June at the age of 71, I decided to try working out with Diane twice a week. I had my my speech ready -I don’t like coming to a gym, the machines are intimidating and here’s my list of past surgeries and health issues.
Diane began to proceed through 3 visits of thorough [ortho-kinetics assessment] evaluation of my body's strengths and weaknesses, including colored charts. I was impressed. We then started our own workouts. Diane never shamed or embarrassed me about what I couldn't do. I feel safe with her and her expertise and she respects when I say I can't do any more. Diane is fun, has great energy and is creative with our workouts. She is full of interesting tidbits on health, nutrition, life and octopus!!
It has been a great summer and I have lost 10 lbs and inches! I actually am looking forward to returning to our schedule when we return next summer. The gym is still not my favorite place to go, but besides church, it's the most important!
Thank you Diane!❤ Robin K.
