          “Maxine was my personal trainer for about one year before she moved to a different gym. Prior to meeting Maxine, I was working out regularly and was in reasonable shape, but I was having a great deal of trouble getting to the ‘next level’. Also I had knee pain and wanted to drop a few pounds. Maxine considered my goals, made corrections to my routine and introduced me to new exercises including some which would strengthen my knee; she reviewed my diet and made suggestions so that my workouts were more effective. While with Maxine, I lost almost 10 lbs (bringing me to my ideal weight), my strength training and balance were hugely improved and my knee pain went away. Maxine is always very easy to speak with, considers what I say and is very informed. She never forgot to follow up with me via email with specifics or reminders. I really enjoyed training with Maxine and would highly recommend her.” – Richard Astur

I have worked with 3 other trainers in the past whom I thought were good, but when I started training with Maxine these people do not compare. I am getting the results and service that are beyond my expectations.” – Edward Liceaga

“I began working out with Maxine in the fall of 2008 when I was 35 years old. I had not actively worked out since my mid 20′s and I was more overweight than I had ever been in my life had terrible eating habits. Oh yeah and did I mention – I had not actively worked out since my mid 20s?  I still remember the first workout with Maxine like it was yesterday. I literally thought, “There is no way I can do this. I’m tool old to work out like this. This is too hard!”  Oh, and I was sore the next day to the point where it was tough to walk. But I came back the next day. And the next day. And the day after that. After a year working with Maxine, I dropped 45 pounds.

 Three years later, I have lost a total of 60 pounds and work out about five days a week – I absolutely love going to the gym and exercising. I feel completely different about who I am as a person. Maxine was the catalyst who helped me change my life. There is no one I would recommend more to others who are looking for help whether it be to lose weight, get in great shape, tone up, or train for something serious like a triathlon or fitness competition.

 She is a phenomenal trainer and is an expert with various exercises, weights, and machines and knows how to motivate people and get them to do the work that it takes. She doesn’t give anyone shortcuts and she is bluntly honest about where you stand. But more than all of those things, I trust Maxine and anyone who works out with her should trust her because she genuinely cares deeply about her clients and the goals that they are trying to accomplish-you feel like you are a team when you work with her.

 I feel like meeting her was a gift and I am so grateful for everything she helped me accomplish. More than words can express. ” – David Blocker


I have been working out with Max for 2 years.  Due to work, I have lived in many cities and have belonged to many gyms.  I have joined many running clubs, tried numerous trainers, nutritionists, and classes.  I can finally say I have found the answer to my training dilemma.  Maxine, combines all of the above into one.  She has provided a diet for me to follow, a cardio routine to challenge me, and her weight lifting sessions tie everything together to help me achieve my goals.  The hour session breezes by as she keeps each session fresh and challenging.   She has the ability to see my energy level and mood and adopt her workouts so I can maximize our time spent together.    Being a busy professional she is extremely flexible in working with me to make sure we find time that works during the week.   For anyone currently searching for the right trainer, please do yourself and try Maxine.  You will not be disappointed.” – Anonymous Client
