Client Testimonials

"Shannon is the best trainer I've ever had. I have been working out with her three times per week and the result has been a complete transformation.  The way Shannon designs a workout and guides you through it is different from what I've experienced in the past.  More than just improving strength, she has emphasized improving core, mobility and functionality. She's always changing it up, adjusting when needed, and making sure the right stretching and balancing movements are part of the workout. Shannon is also a complete professional, always engaged, always organized"- J.R, strength client

"Where has Shannon been my whole life?  For the first time ever I have been able to keep up with a consistent weekly exercise routine on an ongoing, long-term basis and Shannon deserves full credit.  She is engaging, prepared, and has great instincts.  She can spot the tiniest corrections that make all the difference, remembers the specific idiosyncrasies of my body and progress, and can push me past my comfort zone while staying empathetic and compassionate.  I'm stronger than I've ever been and continuing progress each day.  I might even be turning into one of those people who actually look forward to working out!


She is beyond talented at what she does and anyone considering working with her should do so without hesitation!"- Stevie, strength and Pilates client

"I have been actively engaged with the personal training industry since I was twelve years old. Since that time, I have rarely come across someone as professional, fun, and inspiring as Shannon.  Whether the workouts are highly-intensive or Pilates core strengthing, I leave the session learning more than I knew, while improving my overall physical condition.  Shannon is the type of person that gets you excited to workout each week and always leaves you in a better mood than before the session began."- Will, Pilates, strength and Aligned To Thrive client 

"I think a lot of us have gotten into the same routine and become hard on ourselves. When I started this program, I was impressed by its uniqueness. When I was finished I wanted to begin again because of all the confidence it left me with! Each day helped me build on to the last and made me excited for the next challenge and workout - which I have always personally struggled with. This program helped me connect with myself and reevaluate my outlook on my fitness routine and mental health as well. I learned a lot of new techniques and became comfortable trying things in new spaces at home and at the gym. I highly recommend this to anyone just getting started or looking to jump into an innovative new workout."- Monica, Aligned To Thrive User

"I’m 54-years old and proactively trying to avoid the high cost of healthcare by staying healthy, strong, and flexible.  I would rather pay a professional trainer to keep me healthy than pay doctors and pharmaceuticals to treat symptoms of aging and declining health.  I view Shannon as a critical part of my personal healthcare program.  I wish I could say I love to exercise, but I’m quite the slacker when it comes to physical activities.  Shannon quickly figured out that she can get my best effort for the entire session as long as she distracts me with conversation.  We chat about all subject matter and tend to laugh so much that others around us wonder how we’re having so much fun during a workout.  She does a thorough job of designing my workouts to fit my age, abilities, and daily aches or weaknesses.  She constantly mixes it up so that it covers all muscle groups and allows the proper rest time while preventing repetitious boredom.  I simply have to show up and engage.  I highly recommend adding Shannon to your personal health and wellness routine and let her customize a fun personal program for you!  She has greatly improved my mobility and strength, as well as lowered my anxiety and stress.  You will enjoy her enthusiastic spirit, knowledgeable professionalism, and constant quest to give you her best!"- Jolene, strength client

"I started working with Shannon a few years after my son was born as a way to ensure I could keep up with him for years to come (I am In my early 40s) and to be able to reconnect with my active old self.  I have some weight to lose but every time I would jump into any kind of fitness routine I would seem to get injured in some way and discouraged.  I have been working with Shannon for almost 2 years now and have never felt better.  I enjoy working out injury free and challenging myself to keep up with the great complete body workouts she puts together for me in my busy schedule each week.  Shannon is an incredible trainer- every single workout is thoughtful and complete and never boring.  She is incredibly passionate, knowledgeable, professional, positive and inspiring and a joy to have as my guide on my fitness journey.  We have also just begun working on nutrition together as well and I am learning so much and looking forward to seeing great results.  I am incredibly grateful for Shannon and highly recommend her to help you reach your fitness and nutrition goals." -Meg, strength & Pilates client

"I was in a slump, I had lost motivation to work out and wasn't seeing the results I had been with my old routine.  So when a friend of mine mentioned that he had started Shannons 8 week program I figured I would give it a try. It was exactly what I needed to get back into the gym and start seeing results again.  My past routines were based on traditional splits, and I never incorporated super sets. Shannons program is based completely around super setting and elevating the heart rate, and boy was my heart rate elevated.  I could barely keep up with the first weeks program and I had been working out religiously the last few years.  By the end of the program I had a renewed motivation in the gym and I started to see results again.  Its been a few months since I finished the program and I’m planning on starting it again to help break me out of this new plateau I’m entering.  The one thing I would change the second time around is I’ll pay closer attention to Shannons suggestions on food and diet"- Richard, Aligned To Thrive user

"I’ve been training with Shannon twice a week for almost 2 years.  She is by far the most knowledgeable trainer I’ve had (and I’ve been around a lot of them).  Her broad experience and education allow Shannon to bring a holistic approach to attacking and achieving your fitness goals.  I advise anyone of any fitness level to reach out to Shannon to see how she can help you to get on the road to a healthier body.  It could change your life."  Adam – Strength and Pilates client
