Kind Words from our Clients

Sheri L.

My family engaged the services of Lori Michiel for my 77-year-old mother. I was very pleased with Lori's overall professionalism, starting off with in an in-depth health questionnaire, and then physical assessment. She was very engaging, personable and easy to work with. Her approach with my mother (a difficult person) was always right on target, and she was encouraging, positive and upbeat. She would give us reports after each training session to keep us apprised of what went on. I would definitely recommend Lori Michiel to anyone seeking personal training sessions for those over age 50, as she is quite knowledgeable and experienced with the health issues of this population, and appears to have a natural affinity for these individuals.

I've become more confident in pushing my limits as I learned techniques from Lori that were customized to my age and condition. Before, I would pull back from activities for fear of pain or further injury, but she taught me how to build muscle and stamina progressively and safely. Confidence is built on a series of successes; The Lori Method™ works!
Lori's principles of dynamic stretching revolutionized the way I approach stretching. I've seen a great increase in flexibility and have even built additional strength using her techniques.

Rolanda

I learned from Lori how important exercise is to my well-being and that I need to be accountable to myself and make exercise a part of my every day. I actually see Lori's face when I swim, or use the tread mill and know that she will be proud of me and my efforts to live “the good life”.
