Daniel
Elena was able to teach someone 500 miles away the basics to a slew of different Latin ballroom dances (salsa, marengue, bachata, cumbia step, etc.) In just a few lessons I was able to feel comfortable enough with the steps and timing to be able to dance in public with others! She was very amazing and was willing to accommodate to my needs as a student. She gave plenty of reference material as well as songs so that I'd be able to practice when not taking lessons. I would highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone who is wanting to learn Latin Ballroom dance, but doesn't know where to start!

We used Ebony this Spring to get my two daughters (ages 10 and 13) an extra boost of instruction prior to their dance recitals.

Ebony is extremely talented and knowledgable about all styles of dance. She was able to recognize each of my girl's weaknesses and focused heavily on improving those areas.

She is organized, punctual and extremely nice!

I would definitely recommend her as a dance instructor.

"Lian has given me a positive outlook on my fitness goals. I enjoy each session together. She gives me a list of foods not to eat and what is beneficial in my diet. I'm given time to meet goals she has set for me, and I'm given an incentive to improve each week to try to lower my weight. It's been a lot a fun learning what I can do to make me feel better about myself."

"Ron has shown me the benefits of Tai Chi and its application to daily living for your health and spirituality. I have tried exercise classes over the years but they bore me. Tai Chi has been a refreshing change and I rarely miss a class unless I have a conflict with business. Ron is gentle, unassuming and the relaxed atmosphere is very enjoyable. My mantra now is "no pain, no pain"."

"As a new entrant to Tai Chi, it has been a great fortune to find Ron with the advent of the online platform. My curiosity extended beyond the pre-packaged video instructionals and youtube channels as I realized the sheer complexity in the seemingly simple and graceful movements is best uncovered with individualized instruction. As well, the sheer volume of information available these days has created the problem of info overload, so a dedicated master of the arts is helpful to guide and go deeper, not purely wider. Ron's energy and spirit is unmistakably sincere, wise, and powerful. His dedication, as not just a teacher and guide, but as a student himself is inspiring. I encourage others to experience for themselves and see beyond this written word!"

"I am glad I found Baruk, he is awesome, great teacher! I was nervous at first but he is very nice and helpful. the workouts are great, lately they have been kicking my butt and I always feel like I can't do it but he always pushes you and motivates you to keep going which is helpful! I love the meditation we have at the end, it's a perfect wine down after all the kickboxing. It was awkward at first but now I can't imagine a workout without meditation at the end. I always leave feeling way better and refreshed than I came in for sure. I definitely would recommend Baruk to anyone."

"Kathy L: I started training with Patty in my early forties for quite a few years. I looked and felt the best I ever did in my life. When my daughter went to college I took a break because of finances. But I told Patty I would be back. Well it has been about five year and in June of this year I made the call I was thinking of making for months, asked Patty if she could fit me into her schedule. Thankfully yes. When I workout by myself I would make excuses, and my eating habits became terrible, and I gained weight. Patty got me back on track quickly. When I would make excuses she asked me when did I think I could get it together and it made me think. Patty said maybe if I got my eating under control with my workouts maybe other situations in my life would start to fall into place. Patty was right I already have started losing weight and other things in my life are falling into place. Patty is a
great trainer and motivator. I am glad Patty is in my life. P.S. I travel forty minutes to see her and it's worth it !!!"

"I have run on a relay team in the Akron Marathon for the past 7 seven years.
For the last 5 years I meet with Patty for a 20 minute stretch class, group personal training and Boot Camp Classes. I know this has made a huge difference on my ability to run Marathons on race day . I was better prepared. No cramping, no stiffness and more flexibility.
I get the same feeling after the stretching class that I do from a massage.
After the stretching session there is a great sense of relaxation and stress relief!
October of 2010 I became very ill with a Bacterial Infection. I was 60 years old at the time. I totally credit working out with Patty as a viable possibility that I survived the illness. I lost 38 pounds in 5 weeks and was really beat down.
I was able to fight back and that was entirely due to the fact that I was in the best shape of my life at the age of 60!
I totally credit Patty for teaching me the importance of good nutrition and consistent exercise. When I was 50 my Doctor told me " if you want to promote good health as you age, you can NEVER stop exercising " - so I began looking for classes that would benefit me in the long term - Patty was the answer ! Now at 63 I can honestly say I am in very good physical shape. I sleep better, handle stress better and am healthier than most of my friends!
