VIDA Fitness Client Profile — Norrisa Tworkowski
I’m in my late 50s. I was very inactive and had substantial weight gain. Sitting all day at my desk and in front of the computer made matters worse. I got a wakeup call by the onset of heart related health issues. I recently took up running for fundraising but now I’m hooked on running.
I am most excited and thankful for my awesome Personal Trainer, Luciane, because not only have I gone from a size 16 to a size 10, but my cardiologist gave me a clean bill of health!
Why are you using a Personal Trainer to achieve your goals?
To keep from injuring myself by not using proper techniques; for motivation; and, personal accountability that forces me to get my workouts.
What do you like most about your trainer?
Luciane is very patient, but tough when you try to wimp out on her. Once she knows your goals she pushes you to reach them. She is truly a “master” trainer in every sense and mixes the workouts so training sessions are never the same.
What is your main goal?
Overall fitness, weight loss and some body building. I want to advance my running skills.
How has your trainer helped you reach your goals?
As a result of Luciane’s expert personal training, I’m a much stronger and lighter person.
I was able to run road races for the first time in my life! I completed a 5K and a 10K race last year and will be attempting my first half marathon in three weeks.
I’m ready to take on the streets of DC at the upcoming Nike Women’s Half Marathon with a strong finish. Thanks, Luciane!
