The first session with me will be an assessment to get a baseline. This will include girth measurements and a body fat test (if you want), a cardiovascular test, strength test, flexibility test and a postural assessment. With these markers in place and with your goals in place, I then create a personalized exercise plan for you.
Client Success Story
As a 66 year old male, I have been a Type 2, non-insulin dependent Diabetic for 14 years, congestive heart failure 12 years ago and have high blood pressure. About 9 months ago, my spouse and I decided to enlist the services of Maurie Cofman, my personal trainer, in order to get a more balanced exercise program. The results have been remarkable! I have been able to reduce my daily diabetic medication by 75%. I also have more energy, my muscle tone has increase significantly and I have a better outlook on life. Recently, I went in to see my cardiologist, who was also very impressed with my results. My heart is stronger and clearer and now I don’t need to have a stress test every year. Now I consider the two most important people in my health program are my doctor, who I see every 3 months, and my trainer, Maurie, who I see twice a week.”

As a personal trainer Maurie is knowledgeable on how specific exercises will sculpt and affect different groups of muscles on the body. She starts with an individual's personal assessment and finds out the clients goals. She then sets up a specific program to help meet those goals!
Maurie starts with warm ups before each session. Each session is a specific group of exercises which she changes up to work different sets of muscles. She assesses the client's strength, then is able to tell when they are able to increase the amount of weights.
She was also open to changing it on short notice if needed due to the client's needs.
After Maurie's sessions I would definitely feel like I was gaining in strength and endurance. As a nurse I could notice the difference when I worked.
She's not only a great resource but she was a lot of fun to be around, she had a fun sense of humor and we shared a lot of laughs together.
This was my first time with a personal trainer. I would definitely recommend her, she made me feel comfortable and helped me meet my goals.
