  • I feel stronger, fitter, healthier and happier all thanks to Meryl. After suffering a shoulder injury and falling off the fitness wagon, I needed help and thankfully found Meryl. She makes working out fun, but be ready to work hard and push yourself. She also goes above and beyond with affirmations and eating plans to train you body, mind and spirit. I've learned a lot in a short amount of time and will carry on the tools she gave me. Highly recommend!!!!!!

  • Meryl is the best trainer ever! She helped me lose 2% body fat in just 30 days! It was great to work with her as all of her workouts are fun and dynamic in nature. I highly recommend working with her for any of your personal fitness goals!

  • I've worked with excellent trainers before, so I know when somebody knows her stuff. Meryl had a plan from day one, and is relentless in helping me implement it. She's also a fierce advocate for me on days when I'm not feeling able to give my best. I've a long way to go before I get to the "destination", but I have no doubt about Meryl's ability to help me get there. Training sessions are fun, varied, and tough in exactly the way they should be. I've made tangible gains in two months and feel better than I have in years.

  • Working with meryl has been a joy! I am by no means an athlete or a health nut. I'd sit forever and live off donuts if i could (I probably have at times). I was waaaay off the fitness wagon when I started with meryl but she has gotten me on track! It's actually fun to work out now ( close to fun as it will ever be for a person who loves to lounge as much as I do). I'm on my second leg of training and I have had amazing results in body fat percentage reduction, weight loss and overall fitness in just 2 months. I'm now motivated to keep my fitness goals going and her training has been instrumental in getting me to this place. She's also fantastic at working with people with injuries. Highly recommended!

  • Meryl is the absolute best! She is always prepared when I arrive for my workouts and makes me feel totally comfortable. Also, she is quick to respond to any questions I have regarding my nutrition plan throughout the week. I always look forward to my sessions with her! Would definitely recommend!

  • Meryl is a great trainer. She is very skilled and enthusiastic. She takes time to really get to know her clients and their desires and goals. Based on her client's expectations, Meryl tailors every session towards helping her clients achieve their wishes. She pushes you to perfection and is there every step of the way even when you are not in session with her! Meryl is an absolute pleasure and I would highly recommend her to anyone!

  • I'm so lucky to have found Meryl! She makes me enjoy working out and eating healthy. I look forward to every training session!

  • Her training is very effective and she is so disciplined, but the training is not boring at the same time. I have been training with for almost 4 month and I have much progress with my muscle strength. Don't hesitate to contact her to be her future client and you will not regret it! She's very awesome!!!
