“The biggest success of being a personal trainer is helping my clients be able to move better overall. When a client comes back to me and says they biked to classes, or were able to work with no pain, or they could lift a heavier box when helping a friend move is a win. Being a personal trainer is continuously filled with successes and wins and I absolutely love that aspect of my job!” -Courtney Therrien
