"Eight years ago I realized my health and fitness could no longer be pushed aside simply because of a "busy schedule." Fortunately, I had always been active, but the years and gravity had definitely taken its toll. After going the family fitness club route with little satisfaction I discovered Rock Bottom Fitness.
Owner Amy Beckenstein has proven to be one of the best discoveries I could ever have made! After taking time to evaluate my strengths and weaknesses Amy put me on a schedule that included aerobic activity, machines, free weights and one of the areas original "boot camp" programs.
A three time per week commitment on my part, and Amy's very focused, interesting and every-changing array of circuit training and aerobic activity have made all the difference in the world and feeling toned and strong is its own reward.
For six years now I have had the joy of working-out with Amy and truth be told, I can't imagine putting my fitness needs in any other hands.
She is encouraging, understanding and energizing, and I feel fortunate to be counted among her clients, and friends!"
"Although I had been to a trainer before and got into great shape, I eventually let myself go to the point that I didn't want to even try to get back to toned. With some prodding from Marja I got back in the gym, she showed be a better way to manage my nutrition and was very slow and methodical in her ramp up of my training. She took her time and that's what made the difference."
"I have been working out with Amy for 4 years. Initially, I was a little skepical of the whole "personal training" idea, as I had never had one before nor a dedicated work out routine. I wasn't really sure what to expect. However, 4 year later, I have lost 4 sizes and 25 pounds! Amy has really changed the way I view fitness and food. While I was never remotely considered overweight, I was definitely out of shape.
Her 30 minute workout routines are as fast paced and as intense as any 1.5 hour routines I had tried in the past, with BETTER results!! Amy knows my limits, and has pushed me beyond whatever I imagined I could do! She might not always be my "friend" in the middle of an intense workout, but I always thank her later!"
"I have been training with Amy for 13 years. She always pushes me to the limit and makes every minute of my workout count.
She makes my work outs so much fun! She always has new exercises to try and mixes it up. Most of all she is so encouraging and her encouragement drives you to reach your goals inside and outside of the gym."
