I am 60, overweight and absolutely hate exercise. I have no " head " for exercise in a group; by the time I figure out to go left, everybody else is going right. I feel klutzy and embarrassed when I have to exercise with others. After breaking a shoulder I started using Personal Trainers after Physical Therapy ended to ensure that I kept exercising. I have always belonged to a gym, but for me, having a trainer has been the difference between belonging and going. I have been with Barbara now for over two years and she's the best. She trains methodically and has everything planned and documented. She's done a ton of research into shoulder exercises and is extremely attentive to correct form so I don't injure an already compromised joint. She encourages me to progress steadily without pushing too fast. She includes balance training, which is essential for a woman in my age bracket. I feel very comfortable training with Barbara and highly recommend her to others who just aren't comfortable in a group environment.
