"...encourages me to challenge myself..."

I train with Dana because she encourages me to challenge myself beyond what I would do on my own. Dana became my personal trainer after I took one her Barre classes. She was offering a complementary training so I figured, “Why not?” I figured that I would get some exercises and then go off on my own. To my surprise, I began working with Dana twice a week. My goals were to get this 62-year-old body tightened, toned and into a regular exercise routine. What I’ve discovered is that Dana motivates me to work hard, accept new challenges and continue to invest
in myself.
