Shannon is my personal trainer and running coach. She adapts to my body requirements as needed. I'm running better, losing weight, eating better, etc. She's amazing. Results are great! I would recommend her to anyone. Love her!

Having been a runner since my pre-teens, I have competed in both short distance sprints & long distance races (up to a half marathon). In that time I have studied under amazing, award-winning coaches & have amassed a great deal of knowledge regarding the subject. In our discussions/training, we will cover breathing techniques, proper running technique, warming up & stretching adequately before performing, etc. In conjunction with hands-on training, we will discuss dietary plans, varying training regimens, proper hydration, & how to build a routine that will increase your overall physical & mental wellness.

Every one of us have had to run at some point of time – be it as a punishment for coming late to school, a way to reach a train that you can’t afford to miss or simply a part of competing in a sport. While most of us know it is healthy, not many people do it on a daily basis. Probably, if they knew about its various health benefits they’ll be more encouraged to include it in their lifestyles.
Here are some of the top reasons why running is healthy for you.
Great for your heart...Great for your lungs...Helps you lose weight...Slows down aging....Reduces depression...Aids digestion.... Good for your bones....Helps you sleep and Makes you happy

I coached and trained many people in life and business. It started with friends and pretty soon it turned into a little side business.

Marcel tutored my 6 year old daughter in German. He is very friendly and likable, and she enjoyed working with him right away! He even played "Filly's" with her (a German My Little Pony toy!" He is very patient and makes learning fun. He was punctual and also flexible. We had a great experience working with Marcel!

I always had a passion to learn to play the guitar but could never find an instructor who was patient or willing to have fun throughout the lessons, if you're looking to learn amazing guitar techniques and/or songs you've always loved listening to but could never figure out how to play them, Christian's the guitar instructor for you!! He taught me everything I needed to know to progress in my playing and because of him im still going strong 3 years later. Highly reccomend this instructor!
