I was over 50 when I needed to find a personal trainer to deal with back, hip, and knee issues caused by arthritis, injury, and weight. Because of her education and experience, I trust Alissa to help me get into better shape while paying attention to physical restrictions and without causing harm. She designs customized exercises to address my particular needs. For the first time in my life, I like working out!
When I signed up with Alissa to do Pilates, I was skeptical that Pilates was a “real workout”. I thought I would do few sessions and move on. Well, it has been over a year now and I am still doing it. Two reasons kept me in the game: First, my back pain said good bye to me after 2 months of Pilates. A pain that I endured for few years was just gone. Second, Alissa’s knowledge not only in Pilates but in body mechanics and massage were of tremendous help to me when I managed to injure myself –a number of times- while lifting weights. Patiently and sensibly she worked with me to help me recover and on a number of occasions she adjusted the workout sessions to accommodate my body needs. Knowledge, professionalism and sensibility are what Alissa offers to her clients.
I have been working with Alissa for over a year and notice a big difference in my stability, strength and cardio fitness. She comes to my home 3 times a week and changes up the routines so it is never boring. We do everything from walking, toning, weights, pilates and aerobic dance. Alissa has a great personality and is a good motivator.

Alissa’s Pilates DVD’s are awesome! They combine her spunky personality with motivation to create exactly the right workout in the right amount of time for my schedule. You get a terrific work out and come away feeling like you’ve met goals, worked hard, and had a good time doing it. There’s no one I’d rather wake up to work out with!
