I first met Crystal in spring 2011 after the birth of my second child when I wanted to get back into shape before returning to work. I worked out with Crystal for a few months, however I had trouble mastering returning to work, being a mom and taking care of myself. I continued to follow Crystal on facebook, knowing that at some point I would return. Fast forward to January 2015 when I had constant back pain. I was seeing a chiropractor at least once a week. I knew that could not continue and I needed to get back to taking care of me. One weekend when I had so much back pain that I could not move, I got in contact with Crystal. We decided on private sessions until my core was stronger and then I could move to her Boot Camps. Crystal worked me 2 or 3 times a week for about 9 months tailoring each sessions. I am still quite nervous about pulling my back muscles, so Crystal offers me alternative exercises during boot camps to keep my core strong.
Crystal is always well prepared and keeps things interesting with no workout session ever being exactly the same. She is also a very kind and caring person who never hesitates going the extra mile for her clients to achieve their fitness goals. Crystal provides the right amount of motivation for me to push myself just a little bit more to go beyond what I think I do. She actually makes the whole training process fun and I look forward to the challenge she offers me each session we work out. Crystal is always there for her clients to answer questions. I was traveling and wanted some workout advice, so I sent Crystal a text- she answered promptly with suggestions of exercises while I was traveling. In addition, because you go on vacation Crystal believes one should continue to exercise, so she will often give me "homework" while I am away. I am always glad she does this, as it gets me focused at least once a day.
It has been about 18 months since I re-contacted Crystal. I no longer have back pain, and I only see a chiropractor every 2 months. I feel better about myself, I have more energy to be with my kids, sleep better and work better.
Crystal is a fantastic trainer, who keeps you motivated at all times. She makes you want to work out, and adjusts workouts based on need and injury. We do everything from running to yoga to strength training, and it's never the same work out twice. I highly recommend Crystal to anyone looking for a fun fitness routine that gives results.

I found Crystal when I was looking for a new local bootcamps trainer, Crystal seemed like a really likeable down to earth kind of person that I could feel comfortable with as a person and after I started attending her boot camps in 2009 I was hooked. In all these years not only have I lost weight and inches, I also gained stretch, stamina, improved cardio, and friends! Crystal is fun, personable, treats you like a friend and not just a client, and she knows what you're capable of and will encourage you to push yourself a little more to help you reach your goals. Her workouts are effective but fun, a mix of everything; cardio, strength, toning, kickboxing, agility, and always changing so you never get bored with the same thing.

Crystal has been my Trainer for approximately the last 3 years. I wanted to try to get into better shape and wanted to try something new. My sister's coworker recommended Crystal's Bootcamps as she had been a client of hers.
Crystal's classes are always different, I feel like I get a total body workout every week. She encourages us to work our hardest, supports us in making sure we are doing each exercise correctly, and is always mindful of what a person's limitations are.
I would recommend Crystal to anyone who wants to become a physically stronger person.
Crystal is a great trainer. I have never enjoyed exercise but Crystal makes the boot camps fun and engaging. She is easy to talk to and is not judgemental. Would highly recommend anyone wanting to start an exercise regime.
