I have been hesitant to write a review for Tom in fear of his schedule getting too busy to fit us in! We love Tom, he has been teaching my son (12) for almost a year now. He is so patient, kind, and gentle but at the same time encouraging and pushes him in just the right way. His technique is solid and my son has made excellent progress with Tom's instruction. I highly recommend lessons with Tom, just don't take our spot. ;)

A little over a year ago, after a 6 year hiatus, I was looking to get back to playing tennis again. I found Tom on this website and he was able to reintroduce me to the basics and get me to a point where I feel confident enough to join a tennis league. I am more consistent, have better footwork, and am better than I ever was.

Tom is passionate about tennis and teaching. He is friendly, patient, and tailors the lessons to match the students learning style. He has a lot of experience teaching students with a wide variety of skill levels. Tom also has played the game at the highest level, so he is able to provide insight that other less experienced instructors do not have.

If you are considering tennis lessons, I highly recommend Tom.

I am a NASM certified personal trainer who specializes in behavioral change, women's fitness, and weight management. I also am a powerlifter and have been competing in meets for the past 2 years. I've received either 1st or 2nd place at each of the meets I've competed in, and just recently received my USA Powerlifting Coaching Certification. I'm eager to help people, especially women, with their fitness journey and get everyone to start lifting weights!

If you decide to purchase a lesson package from me, you can expect fully customized weekly programs, weekly check-ins with me, and macronutrient recommendations. I am always open to questions or concerns that clients might have, and do my best to respond as quickly as possible. I look forward to working with you!

My pricing on here is equal to my weekly pricing - one week's worth of programming will be $30, but if you choose to pay monthly, you can purchase a 4-lesson package of $120. 4 weeks is a great amount of time to invest ...

I love learning french from Erica! She prepares in advance for the lessons, and creates study materials that I can access at any time. I'm interested in learning the Quebec pronunciation as well as France-French, and she is able to introduce me to that. She is patient, and great at helping me make sure I am forming my mouth in a way that helps me have the proper pronunciation. She is a great teacher!

Weekly Classes with Ellen was an ABSOLUTE PLEASURE!! I feel the time flew by through every single class, each one so unique, freeing, positive and fun!!! I ALWAYS LOOKED FORWARD TO EVERY CLASS!! I appreciate and love everything about her energy; so compassionate, non judgemental, kindhearted, insightful, and GENUINE! Her movement, dance style is truly beautiful and awe inspiring, very spirited and special! I get inspired to never stop dancing, just watching her dance!
So filled with utmost gratitude for her and I feel very lucky to have learned from her, even just through online classes, she has helped me let go, surrender in the most compassionate way to all the different ways my body felt like moving, while feeling the inner flow and freedom! Through each move. I improved tremendously in body and energy AWARENESS and CONNECTION! She taught me some of her super creative choreographies and all along giving me space to add free movement, I received both helpful and positive feedback, she really caters the classes to what YOU need and want!! I feel excited that I gained the ability to see and find, to really feel meaning, purpose, a story in any and every move! I will forever cherish these classes we had together!

Ellen is encouraging and took us from where we started. We’re excited by what we will be learning.

"When I booked my first lesson with Morris, I had no idea that table tennis could be such a great work out and so much fun at the same time. For many years I was a teacher - Junior High School, High School, and college. Morris has all the qualities that make for a great teacher. He is a superb player himself, he understands the learning process, he knows how to teach, and he respects his students. He makes learning to play table tennis a joy. If you want to learn to play table tennis, I enthusiastically recommend Morris.

"If you're looking for a transformation beyond the physical one... look no further Baruk is the guy!

Baruk won't just get you stronger physically... but he'll also help you develop mental and emotional strength as well.

Mind, body, and spirit... Baruk has lot's of knowledge and wisdom to share. He isn't someone with a brief training in certification... Baruk has extensive life experience in Yoga, Boxing, Martial Arts, and more. He hasn't just been around the block... but the world!

I love learning different combinations and seeing my reflexes get stronger. Baruk continues to push me past my mental limits... and what a rush of dopamine that hits when I go against the negative chatter of "Give up" in my mind!

His training has given me a stronger foundation of self-love and strength for the adversity in life.

If you're looking for a tough workout that makes you smile for getting through it at the end... a place where you will gain emotional and mental strength... and connect with the parts of yourself that aren't your thoughts but something truer and real...

Baruk is the trainer for you!

Plus, the scenery is beautiful with amazing wildlife - birds of alllll kinds - around.

Its a magical experience and workout. With the workout concluding with aromatherapy and focusing inwards... breathing... meditating... being.

In a world with so much noise, training with Baruk is my reset and reminder to stay present and have compassion for not just my journey, but others as well.

10/10 experience and the best training I've received.
You won't find this training at a gym like Crunch or La Fitness."

"With experience in ballet technique, gymnastics conditioning, and pilates, Veronica leads a very well-rounded class in strength and conditioning. She focuses on specific muscle groups and understands how to stretch and strengthen in a safe way for joints and tendons. Her motivation to address the supporting muscle groups instead of just bulking up the large muscles makes the work out very valuable as a dancer with an active lifestyle. It also helps that her pricing per lesson is very reasonable based on other online instructors. I highly recommend her for stretch and conditioning classes!"
