I never imagined gaining strength and stability could be an empowering practice before I began working with Tess. Through her energy, mindfulness, and extraordinary skill, I was able to gain a deep appreciation for this work — I cannot imagine my life without it now. Tess rocks and I am so happy that is someone like her helping people find the fun and joy in fitness!

I found Tess when looking for a trainer to work with after an ankle injury. I was new to the world of physical activity but she had a blog post about working out like a pirate (when you have one foot damaged) and her playful tone in the article told me that this might be the trainer for me. I was right! Tess' attitude was immensely helpful, positive, and fun!  I now LIKE strength training which was inconceivable a few years ago. I think it's amazing and empowering and a freaking high and that is entirely because Tess was willing to meet me exactly where I was (a couch potato) and step by step take me to the next thing. I always feel that I'm in safe hands with Tess; she challenges me in the perfect way that will get me over the next obstacle without discouraging me. It is not an understatement to say that Tess has changed my life. I know that sounds cheesy but it's absolutely true. I went from wanting a few exercises I could do while sidelined with a sprained ankle to making daily movement an integral part of my life.

Making the decision to start training with Tess has honestly been one of the most important things I have ever done for my body. Due to childhood surgery, the odd injury, and generally not knowing how to take care of myself, I had thought my body somewhat broken. But, working out with Tess has taught me that I'm not broken. By training the right way with a focus on technique, I am strong and confident in a way I have never been before in my life. I still have my limitations, but Tess has taught me that they aren't huge mountains, they are just hills to be climbed one step at a time.
