In need of a Boston MA in home personal trainer? Home Bodies can help.
Claire Barthelemy is a senior at Boston University, majoring in Public Relations. She was born and raised in Los Angeles, but came to the east coast for school. This past Christmas break she was home in California with her parents, Janice and Eric, where she found out that they were giving her the gift of a personal trainer for Christmas! Her parents thought that she needed to relieve some stress and become more physically active. As a public relations major thinking about her career after college, her mother thought that getting into better shape and having improved body image would do wonders for Claire’s confidence. Claire’s mother also hoped the trainer could help her daughter with cooking, since making meals for just herself was sometimes a challenge nutritionally.
Claire had exercised in the past but never followed any formal program. Freshman and sophomore year of college, Claire went to the gym in the building that she lived in, but it was tiny, and she never went consistently for more than a month or so. She never really knew how to work out effectively, and would never keep it up. The main reason was that she felt discouraged when she didn’t see immediate results.
Claire has been training with a Home Bodies trainer for seven weeks. Claire’s trainer, Ashley Arpe, comments, “I can see all over how her body is getting re-shaped. Her confidence has risen, her posture is greatly improved, and she has abdominal muscles she never thought were possible. Plus her legs, biceps, triceps, chest, and shoulders are all nicely defined. Overall Claire is very happy. I've explained to her that losing weight is a slow but steady process when you do it correctly."
Claire has loved her trainer and her program so far. “Ashley has really motivated me,” says Claire. “I am much more eager to go to the gym. Ashley has taught me many new exercises. She has provided meal plans for me every week that I know how to modify a bit if needed. She has helped me incorporate foods that I like to eat, and I have been able to stay on track. Hiring an in home personal trainer has been one of the best things I have ever done."
When Claire began training with Ashley, her primary goals were to lose weight, relieve stress, to make an overall life change to become healthier and have more energy. Claire has really enjoyed the fact that the “Home Bodies” program is not just about fitness - it is also about eating right and living more healthfully. Claire was open to learning how to change what she was doing, because what she was doing obviously wasn’t working. Claire works with Ashley three times per week, so she is getting intensive coaching on not only exercise, but all areas health and fitness.
