Danielle has been my coach for over a year and a half, she has become my friend and inspiration. Thanks to Danielle’s patience, encouragement, guidance and expertise, I took second place in my first regional Figure competition and third place at the OPA Provincial Championships. I couldn’t have done it without her. Danielle is now helping me prepare for the CBBF Figure Championships in August 2013; nationals will be my third competition.

Competing in this sport has been a huge personal accomplishment for me. I have always struggled with my weight and self-confidence. I actually decided to participate in my first Figure competition as a way to push my comfort levels and face my body-image issues. Danielle has not only helped me overcome my insecurities, she is also helping me set and accomplish goals that I never thought were possible. I can’t say enough positive things about Danielle; she has been unbelievably patient and supportive.

Before I started working with Danielle I did my own research about diet and training. For years I tried various diets, and I would search for training tips and routines in fitness magazines and on websites. The bottom line is that I was overwhelmed and confused; I didn’t understand how to make sense of all of the information available. I was unsure if I was making the right diet choices to sustain my physical activity, or if I was choosing the right weight training and cardio routines to build the body I wanted. On my own I was never able to achieve my personal physical goals. Working with Danielle changed everything for me. Danielle has taken the time to know me personally, and she designs my diet and training programs specifically for my personal needs and goals. Since I began working with Danielle I have continued to make noticeable improvements – I have never been healthier, stronger, as muscular, or as self-confident as I am now.

Danielle has helped me every step of the way in preparing for my competitions, well beyond diet and training. She taught me about stage presence and how to pose, and even helped me learn to walk in high heels. Danielle also stayed with me during both of my competitions, helping me with my tan, my suit, my hair and makeup. She has done more than prepare me to compete in Figure; Danielle has given me knowledge about diet and nutrition, physical training and how to maintain a healthy lifestyle that will influence me for the rest of my life. Most importantly, because I worked with Danielle I have achieved my personal physical goals; I have learned to appreciate my body and see myself in a new light. I am more confident now than I ever have been.

Danielle’s own physicality provides a testament to her expert knowledge and ability. I highly recommend Danielle as a trainer and coach to anyone wanting to compete or improve their physicality.

Thank you for everything you have done for me Danielle!
