Erika Bolneo – Personal Trainer

I have been a personal trainer for 7 years and not a day goes by that I don’t feel great fulfillment knowing that I am making a positive difference to my client’s lives.  My job is to motivate, inspire, educate,and make exercising an enjoyable experience, to ensure clients get real results FAST.  I believe in a holistic approach to health which includes healthy eating coupled with regular intense and light exercise, stretching, sufficient rest and time for leisure.  Once the lifestyle for wellness is adopted, the individual’s true physical and psychological potential is achieved.  You only live once, why not live it being the best you can be?
