“I have been training with Jamie Smith for the last year and a half and love the results so far. She is able to make each training session challenging and fun by switching up what and how we work. Some days we will do heavy lifting with free weights while other times we will just use my body weight. My favorite by far is mixing weight training with balance discs. During the time that I have been training with Jamie I have lost weight (32 lbs) and body fat (12%) while increasing my strength and endurance.”
“Jamie has been my personal trainer for 2 years. Her work outs are challenging and are tapered to my own activity level, and modified if needed. The workouts are multifunctional, designed for using several muscle groups with one specific exercise. The work outs are never boring. With her help, motivation and coaching, I am physically stronger and have significantly reduced my weight.”
“I have been seeing Jamie for personal training for about 9 months now, usually 1x a week. I can’t recommend her more highly. In the 40 some workouts we have done, I have rarely done the same exercise twice. She is prepared for every single workout and works every major muscle group. By doing a fitness analysis my first time, she was able to determine which areas I needed the most strengthening – and tailors the workouts to my abilities. She knows her stuff – not only in fitness but in nutrition as well. She gives me very sound advice and goals, not fad diets that don’t work. What I love most about Jamie is how encouraging and approachable she is. I was nervous about going to a personal trainer, fearing it would be intimidating. But Jamie is so upbeat, positive and non-judgmental. It’s always a great time, and I look forward to seeing Jamie every week!”

“Roman is an excellent trainer at courts plus. Before I had a trainer, I came to the gym not knowing what exercises I should do and would end up leaving only doing a few lifts, straining myself in the process. Once I heard that Courts Plus had a trainer program, I signed up, and my experience at Courts Plus only got better. Having Roman showing me lifts and exercises I should do during the week, as well giving me an exercising program, motivated me to come to the gym. I would recommend anyone that is new to lifting or working out in general to have a trainer such as Roman to guide them. – Jason Lowranc”
“I think Hidie loves working with her clients. She has amazing knowledge of the human body. Working with Hidie is like having my own personal physical therapist, who is continually helping me stay fit, as my body ages with the usual aches and pains. She manages to adjust “on the spot”, so that I don’t hurt myself as I’m trying to help myself. And she makes working out a lot of fun! I feel pretty lucky to know her.”
“I have been training with Hidie Larson for more then 13 years. She has always been very professional and very friendly during our work-outs. Through the years we have had as many as 4 or 5 working out with Hidie at the same time and she always knows what degree of difficulty each one of us can handle. She keeps our workouts refreshing and comes up with new and interesting drills all the time. She maintains good records on us so we know where we have been through the years. I look forward to seeing Hidie once a week.”
“I can tell that Hidie puts a lot of time and thought into my workout plans. She must know 15 different ways to work the same muscle. Hidie’s loyalty and patience are amazing. She waited while I underwent two joint replacement surgeries and then played a major part of completing my physical therapy.”
Hidie has been my trainer since 1997, she is an excellent trainer. She is very compassionate & understanding of each person’s needs. She has helped me work thru various injuries over the year.
Hidie is a true professional at her job.
I feel lucky to have Hidie as a trainer. For any health issues coming my way she has the knowledge to help me resolve them. In a fun way she pushes me out of my comfort zone to work on my strength and tone. She also cares about me as a person and I enjoy our camaraderie!

“Rhys is a very positive and encouraging trainer. He works hard with his clients to strike the correct balance of exercises so that they can achieve their end goals while watching closely to make sure the individuals maintain proper form to prevent injury. I have greatly benefitted from my time with Rhys and continue to look forward to our sessions together.”
