ERICA- mom of 14 month old
I have been following Jacqueline’s program for about 6 weeks now and
am enjoying it. As a life long fitness buff, one of the most
difficult parts of becoming a mom for me has been carving out a space
in the day for exercise. I don’t have much time and can’t be far from
my 14 month old, so I’m looking for a fitness regime that is
stimulating, challenging and can be done in my basement. Jacqueline’s
program fits the bill!
The program is well written and nicely laid out with supporting photos
to check your form. It is easy to follow and requires very little
equipment. The exercises are challenging, just doing the warm up makes
you sweat,and you can increase the intensity of the workout by adding
weights where suitable. It is clear that Jacqueline has put a lot of
thought into grouping exercises that will use as many muscle groups as
possible in a small set. The result is an invigorating workout in a
very short period of time.
I am definitely feeling more toned around the middle and can see
better tone in my arms and legs. My upper body strength has increased
noticeably, which is great for scooping up the baby. I would recommend
this program to moms of any age, with kids of any age!

I will definitely say that Jacqueline’s workout programme is short and effective especially for the tired and still working expectant mother. It is easy to do and can even be further broken up throughout the day when you
have a few minutes to spare. Targets the muscle groups that weaken through the pregnancy and are even great to do when not preggers anymore!

“These workouts helped me feel strong and stay relatively flexible. I have no doubt that I’ll bounce back to my pre-pregnancy fitness level a lot faster thanks to Jacqueline’s guidance and expertise.”

I’ve been training with Jacqueline for over 6 years, and can’t live without her now. She initially helped me to get my health and fitness goals on track and has since then helped me find my inner athlete. She ran my first half-marathon with me, and I went on to run a full marathon a year later. She’s extremely knowledgeable and I trust her completely with my safety and also with continually motivating me to go further. Jacqueline’s a very creative trainer, and continually changes my program so that I’m constantly improving in one way or another — I’ve never once been bored, or even considered giving it up. I’m strong, fit and healthy thanks to Jacqueline, and in the best shape I’ve ever been.

I was very fortunate to have met Jacqueline Gradish 5 years ago. I had chronic back pain due to a serious back injury and had received bad rehab from another clinic. Jacqueline designed a training program specifically for my needs and had be back 100% after training with her for one year. I have continue to train with her to maintain my fitness goals for the past 5 years. Jacqueline is very knowledgeable regarding rehab training and total body fitness. I highly recommend Jacqueline to anyone looking for a very knowledgeable and versatile trainer who borrows from many disciplines to provide a unique and satisfying approach.

I’ve been working out with Jacqueline since the summer of 2003 and I’ve never felt better. I’m stronger, leaner and less stressed than I was before I started training with her. Her workouts are tough, but they’re also creative, super effective and lots of fun. I don’t know what I’d do without her.
