Testimonials

“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.”
-Angelique K.

“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.”

-Leslie M.

Testimonials

“As a family, and for me personally, we have significantly improved during our time with David and we are grateful. We clearly would not be where we are today in our strength and fitness journey without David and we are glad that he is on the team at Courts Plus. David is concerned about our health and physical development. He listened to each of us and our specific needs. He personally develops a plan tailored for the individual, keeps track of progress, and continues to move us forward.”

– Dan Fischer

“David has been training my son for almost a year now. My son, Jeff, plays tennis. He started training with David to improve his strength, speed, and agility. My son thoroughly enjoys training weekly with David. Each session has a different goal and something new to work on. This allows for challenge and motivation. Jeff never complains about training. He has thoroughly enjoyed it. His tennis coach has noticed significant improvement in coordination, speed, and agility. I also have personally trained with David. He has customized a workout plan tailored to my needs and physical issues! David is great to work with!!”

Testimonials

“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.” -Patty A.

“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.” -Don W.

“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.” -Cole C.

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. -Lee P.

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! -Ellen D.
