"I met Danielle Klassen in January of this year when my doctor told me that I had to change my lifestyle (exercise and diet). As I could not join the Boomer Bootcamp that she conducted at that time, Danielle kindly found me a partner to work with and provided us with a 'special' workout twice a week.
I had neglected my fitness for years, especially my abs. Well, Danielle managed to have me work all parts of my body (including that protruding tummy). And guess what? For the first time in my life, my pants began to fit loosely, my upper arms didn't jiggle as much and I had new found energy!
Danielle is terrific. She is fun, extremely knowledgeable and always organized and ready to go. She varies the exercises so much that it keeps me guessing and the time speeds by. Working out with Danielle also made me realize that I was back in the '60s with my exercise program.
The result: in two months time my cholesterol and blood sugars are back to normal and I have lost 6 pounds.
Accolades to Danielle... I couldn’t recommend a fitness trainer more highly."
