Personal Training & Small Group Training Testimonial:


Andrea has got me working on my fitness! At my age I simply have had to get my act together. Use it or lose it. I am a grumpy client, but Andrea sails through that challenge every time! And it is very impressive that I have been committed to my combo of weekly pt and class and furthermore I have a developed a strong affinity with bodyART. This says a great deal about Andrea.  Patient, encouraging, warm, consistent and persistant without the ra-ra that so often goes on in the fitness world and finally, very knowledgeable about all aspects of her craft.                                                                                                              (Kate - current client)
