I’d never worked with a trainer before
and approached this experience with a fair amount of trepidation. I didn’t know what to expect, but I know what I didn’t want: a macho guy all into muscle and nothing else. Working with Sam far exceeded my expectations. Sam welcomed my approach to my body as an exploration and challenge of my perceived limitations, and a celebration of my emotions and spiritual well-being. Sam welcomed my questions, incorporated my requests into the routines, and provided consistent unwavering support.
I was impressed with his dedication and commitment to helping me be my best at each moment, and his willingness to listen to my insecurities and challenges, as well as what I felt were great strides in progress. I was quite impressed with his ability to stay focused, present and completely attuned to me (my favorite topic) at each of our sessions. The experience for me was a continual unfolding of new awareness and lessons about what barriers I construct for myself and how to overcome these obstacles with Sam’s feedback and help.
I have a new appreciation for my body, for myself and for what I am capable of. I am surprised how conscious I am of the choices I am making on a daily basis concerning my health on every level. Where I used to automatically reach for the candy bar or remote control, I now make a protein shake or take a walk (ok, truth: if not, I at least think about it). Sam, you’re the bomb (and pretty macho too)!
