"My husband and I have been going to Ellen's training studio for over a year. She makes weight training sessions fun! Ellen varies the routine every week based on how we feel and what distance we are running the next day. Jim and I know we are stronger and more balanced since she started our training. Just can't say enough about her training knowledge and level of professionalism." Grace B.
"Been a client for a number of years and have been able to lose some of the weight that I wanted to lose. I am not a diet person so I am doing it slowly. I have higher energy levels and all my blood work is really good according to my Doctor. Could not be happier. Thanks to Ellen I have dropped three sizes and have muscle instead of fat. I highly recommend Ellen for anyone looking to tone up and not have someone critical of your weight." Julia S.
"Ellen delivers a creative environment that makes working out fun. For the last 8 months, we've been working out with Ellen, and couldn't feel better!
I've been playing sports and lifting weights with trainers for years, but not until I started working out with Ellen did I finally learn the right way to do each exercise. She has gotten me to focus on the specific muscles being used, and hones in on my posture to ensure the movements are correct throughout.
My wife, who also works out with Ellen, and couldn't look or feel better.
Did you know how important it is to stretch, especially as we get older? I didn't either. All of these years of working out and feeling minor pain or discomfort, all because I wasn't taking enough time to properly stretch. Ellen has also instilled in us the need to stretch, and demonstrates good stretching techniques (just as she demonstrates all the exercises)." Bill C.
"... I'm also THRILLED with the progress we've been making! Everyone has noticed the change and when I weighed myself on my body fat analyzing scale, my body fat was the lowest it has ever been!!! ... Maybe someday I'll be your poster child."Traci D.
"I am really excited about the improvements I have seen in my cycling since I have increased my workouts from once a week to 3 times a week. I can now keep up with the fast riders and also have the ability to sprint when I need to. It is so nice to not be at the back anymore! I shared with Ellen my goals and my workouts with her are tailored toward these." Leslie K.
"When I was looking for a trainer, the thing that stood out for me about Ellen was that she was a Weight Watchers Lifetime Member. I knew she understood the struggles of weight loss. As I started working out with Ellen, we set goals together and achieved them. One year after becoming a Weight Watchers Lifetime Member myself, I am still working out with Ellen. Our goals are now more focused on performance (5k times!) rather than weight loss (over 35 pounds lost!). Thank you Ellen for helping me to achieve my goals! " Ashley F.
I've been training with Ellen for six years. I first recruited her to help me get in shape for my wedding and, after seeing the transformation in my body, I've stayed with her. I'm always getting compliments on my toned arms, and I love it! The best part about Ellen is that she always comes up with new ideas for workouts and is very willing to adapt to my needs. She is a great motivator and sets a wonderful example of a healthy lifestyle. THANK YOU for all you do! Sandy L.
At 62, I am improving my stamina, strength, coordination, balance, and flexibility. Ellen Rodriguez set me on this path about four years ago. I find Ellen's training sessions unique and interesting. We repeat exercises but never and entire workout. Ellen's approach balances concern for the realities of my age with real physical challenges, challenges that I am proud of accomplishing.
I am enjoying it! Tom J.
Ellen's enthusiasm is infectious! John W. Mecom, Jr.
I want to tell you how much I appreciate the work that you did with me. It is amazing that it has awakened my muscle memory. I rode Wednesday and Thursday. I already noticed a marked improvement in my connection with my horse, Tippy. In fact last night I gave a loud hoot when she made a smooth long sliding stop (the first in a very long time). I will ride today and show her Saturday and Sunday at Great Southwest Equestrian Center. I know that your Pilates exercises woke my core and legs. The exercises are working (and I am feeling it in my thighs and stomach, ouch!). It's great. Gerry W.
I am a 26 year old mom of 2 children under the age of 3. I started training with Ellen to loose my baby weight when my daughter was 6 months old (about 7 months ago). I was 176 lbs and always had problems with my knees which limited me when it came to working out and running. I have lost 25 lbs (*and still loosing) and have never felt better about myself! I am always getting compliments and I have more energy to devote to my family - which is much needed! Not only has Ellen helped me accomplish a much desired goal but she has also helped me develop a healthy lifestyle (nutrition, wellness, stretching, etc. - you name it). I have never been one of those who love, let alone like working out - but now I get excited just thinking about it! With Ellen the possibilities are endless and she has done a great job keeping me encouraged throughout this process. I have never been a runner but now we are focusing on my first 5k race!!! Thank you Ellen - for changing my life and helping me develop a desire to live a healthy lifestyle. Needless to say my husband is very grateful too. Tanisha C.
