Z“I’ve been lifting on and off for just about a decade and a half now, and in that time, I’ve had the opportunity to work closely with quite a few personal trainers. When I first signed on for a personal training package at Denver Gym & Fitness, I was in a total rut. Averaging maybe one or two visits to the gym a month, I dreaded working out and had zero motivation to push myself. Any confidence I’d once had while in the weight room was for sure long gone.
But when I went in for my initial consultation with Head Trainer Kelsey Manilla and explained my situation, she couldn’t have been more accommodating to my personal fitness goals. We started off slow at my request and gradually worked our way up, all while focusing on the fundamentals like form, warm-ups, and diet. In a matter of weeks, I’d regained my endurance, no longer and began making leaps and bounds in terms of progress. These days, I’m smashing the personal records I set back in my high school wrestling days.
It’s now been about six months since I started working with Kelsey, and I feel like a completely different person. This is easily the best shape I’ve been years, and I can proudly say that I both look and feel great. I would even go so far as to say hitting the gym is now one of the highlights of my week.
I couldn’t be more grateful to Kelsey for guiding me every step of the way on this journey. Since our very first session together, she’s pushed me to be the best I can be and believed in me when I didn’t even believe in myself. Without a doubt, Kelsey is the best personal trainer with which I’ve ever had the privilege of working!”
