Lori – I just wanted to put in a plug for you as a trainer. I’ve been very impressed with how you individualize your training and make an effort to get a question answered if you don’t know the answer. Not only did you check out my condition (Fibromyalgia) and how you can help, you sent me an email within the same day as we saw each other. You’re organized and fun to work with. I asked for some cheat sheets so I could practice at home and remember what to do and you had them ready the next time I saw you. You have a great, cheerful attitude. I would recommend you to anyone!

For the past seven years, my clients have reaped the benefits of working with Lori Michiel and her team. My clients are living with less pain, greater strength, endurance and flexibility; fewer falls as well as less depression and more energy for life. Speaking as a Professional Geriatric Care Manager, physical exercise is an integral component of a Care Plan, especially for my clients with health issues. Moving the body is essential to physical, emotional and cognitive well-being and Lori and her trainers know how to safely and effectively engage my clients in an exercise program that is appropriate for their needs.

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.
