Kat by Anita R.

Catherine (Kat) Polo is quite simply a GREAT trainer. She is always prepared, focused and ready to challenge me. She pays very careful attention to form, reminding me that doing it quickly isn’t what’s important; getting the form right is what matters. She considers any injuries or chronic conditions, giving me confidence that she will “do no harm.” Variety is assured; while some “exercises” are repeated, you won’t get bored! She has a great sense of humor and makes working out fun. But you will do work; I am tired when I am done; and if I am sore the next day, I know the new exercise really did “work.” Tell her your goals and then do what she says, and you will see the results, whether it is increased strength, flexibility or endurance you want, or all three!

Gale Wetmore, my first ever personal trainer! by R.H.

Based on my success with you as my first ever personal trainer, at almost age 66, and my experiences as one of the older baby boomers, I firmly believe that there are many more like me out there who would be similarly thrilled and relieved to become involved in a similar program. I ended up in personal training only because when I did the personal fitness assessment, I was shocked, and frankly scared, at how far out of shape I was, not to mention my deep concern that without help, I would not know how to use all the equipment and might end up going nowhere.

Working with you, I have not only begun to improve my core strength, a concept about which I previously unaware, but also I appreciate your working with me with where I am starting, out of shape, injured knee, etc, identifying muscle groups large and small that need recognition and movement, kind of like physical therapy for all parts of the body. All of this will be so valuable to folks such as I, hoping to live a healthy and active later phase of life. I know I will get there, one step at a time. And I am confident that there are many more out there in situations like to mine, but who similarly have no clue how much they need this type of help and how and where to get it.

Thanks, Gale,  for all your help to date. I'm amazed at the positive difference it is making already.

Glenn is such a wonderful, positive and friendly Group Power teacher. I have loved going to Island Fitness and have made friends there. I’ll be back when we move back to the island. Thanks for everything, especially your kindness.

I have had several training sessions with Jillian Bateman and have really enjoyed working with her.  Jillian is professional and knowledgeable.  She is also patient and encouraging.  I highly recommend her as a trainer.
