My weight had been like a roller coaster for years. And, honestly, it really was hard to notice, as I was probably gaining 4 or 5 pounds every year. It would all be fine if I were content; but I wasn’t.
I was lucky enough to have met Shari Beth at a mutual friend’s gathering. I found Shari Beth very easy to talk to, as I learned about her business. It took me a few months, but I finally called. She set up an appointment for an evaluation (when I heard this, I thought to myself that this was not going to work AND who has the time for an evaluation?) I dragged Dave with me! Before long, we were both signed up with SB. It was November of 2012.
It has been 2 ½ years, now, and what a positive journey!! I look forward to my sessions and, I must admit, I am not sure what I enjoy more – our discussions or my work out! There have been a few times when all I really needed was to talk and that’s what we did!! No exercise, just talk! And Shari Beth knows when I need that! So yes, my weight has gone down now over 20 pounds but, over this time period, it was not always headed in the right direction! I learned that this is okay. My family often questions me about my choices, asking whether or not Shari Beth "told me to do that!"
So, from learning to look at things positively, to ideas for simple meals, to the Whole Life Challenge and just someone that is always willing to listen, Shari Beth is more than just a trainer, she is a true friend

In a million years, I never thought I'd need or use a personal trainer. I had always believed that there is nothing that can be taught to me that I don't already know. As it turned out, I was very wrong! Shari-Beth has a way of getting into my head and making me think about things in a different way than ever before. I am so much more aware of what I do, how I do them and what I eat!
I couldn't recommend any trainer more than I do Shari-Beth!

I met Shari-Beth in May 2015 while participating in a challenge where she was our leader. After meeting her and experiencing her positive attitude and energy, I decided to train with her. Shari-Beth is a fantastic personal trainer. She devises a program that is appropriate to your needs and ability and knows how to push you in just the right way. She makes you want to learn to develop a healthy life style. An added bonus is that she is so easy to talk to as well. I look forward to my sessions. She is by far the best trainer I have worked with. Fitness can be enjoyable when you find the right person to work with and I know I have.

I was inspired by you from the day I googled "personal trainer near Livingston", read your story and knew I had to meet you. And you continue to inspire me every day. How, you ask? When you trained me a few years ago, you didn't just help me physically. You helped me emotionally more than anything. You always had a positive attitude even after all the "stuff" you went through and you taught me to look for the silver lining in every situation. At the time, I struggled with how to mourn the loss of my mom dying at 61 years old and also the loss of my marriage and thought I will never see the light at the end of the tunnel. But even after I moved too far away to continue training with you, I always kept your positive mantras in the back of my head. And almost 5 years later, I see the light- I am studying to be a health coach at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I have gotten very involved with the Jewish Federation and might go on a mission next year to Israel, I volunteer at both my children's schools, I am helping other women through tough times and most of all I am in an emotionally good place. I have amazing friends all around me and keep busy and when there are rough times, I keep my head high and know that this too shall pass. I truly believe that I owe you the biggest thank you for your positive influence over the past few years which ultimately led me on a successful emotional journey.
I have worked with Shari-Beth for approximately 4 years. Her training sessions provide not only exercise, but education on health and wellness related issues. She has updated equipment so you are always learning new ways of exercising which makes each session exciting. I have learned so much and continue to do so.

Shari-Beth has been a life saver for me. Not only does she give me an amazing workout but works with me to figure out different ways to lead a healthier life all within my means. She has a host of ideas and modifications to accommodate my lifestlye. She is never judgemental, just.... supportive, helpful and motivating. Did I mention what a great workout you get on top of all these other perks.

Shari-Beth has helped both me and my daughter. I have lots of age related issues, and she is always mindful of them and manages to give me a full body workout each time by modifying the exercises. She is the best!

Shari-Beth is the best trainer I have every worked with. She customizes your sessions to help you attain all your goals - weight, strength, flexibility, cardio - while being sensitive to any injuries or issues you may have. She is also so much fun to spend time with. Our sessions go by in a flash.
