“Working with Joanne is how this Stella got her groove back.”

In my first session with Joanne she asked me to describe how I ate, and I have to laugh because I told her that I ate relatively healthily, and I meant it. Oh, what I had to learn. I did not even know what eating healthy looked like! I was utterly and positively stuck in my life. At 46, I had grown into a 60-pound overweight couch potato. Climbing the stairs left me winded (and that was the full extent of what I considered my “exercise” program!). While it sounds cliché, working with Joanne truly changed my life.What I value the most in working with her is how well she paces her instruction so that I can digest what I’ve learned (and I’ve learned a staggering amount!) at the pace that works for me. From the start, I knew I didn’t want a diet—I wanted a genuine lifestyle change, and that’s exactly what I’ve gotten. In less than 4 months’ time, I have dropped 4 pant sizes and I exercise 5 -6 times a week because—get this!—I want to. I cannot recommend Joanne highly enough.
