- T. Anand

I am so fortunate to have Ronaye for a trainer. I have lost 50lbs as well as a lot of my insecurities by working with her. I have found my confidence again. I have also found a true loyal friend. I kid with my friends that I'm off to see my phsyciatrist because sometimes I get more out of our workouts from her just listening to me then I get from her actually kicking my ass. You can tell she truly cares about her clients. I feel that is very rare considering I went through 2 other trainers before I found her. So believe in me when I say she is the best!!!

My favorite days of the week are my training days with Ronaye, the days I forget about everything else in the world and learn all about myself!!!! Or put myself first.
- M. Duivestyn

I was fortunate to reconnect with Ronaye at a friends wedding in July of 2011. I was at a place in my life where I was desperately wanting to make changes but unsure of how to get there. I began working with Ronaye, this time my journey took a different route than in years past. I have discovered that for me, getting healthy, fit and strong has taken many different paths. Ronaye has helped teach me that dealing with the emotional "stuff" that has blocked my path to my finish line, has been essential to reaching my health and fitness goals.

Ronaye has been the one constant during this process, working closely with me and encouraging me during my successes and challenges. She has made me understand that it is necessary to go through my "stuff" and deal with it once and for all in order to be successful in reaching my goals.

I'm now in a place where the pounds are dropping and I'm feeling good! I can see my finish line! I know that, along with my family and friends, Ronaye will be there waiting when I cross that line cheering me on!!!

My name is Carolina. I am a 26 year old woman who uses the gym a lot. I was working out constantly at the gym but I was not seeing results, in fact the scales seemed to be moving upwards. I was upset that my body was not improving with all the time that I was putting in at the gym.

I had seen Ronaye around the gym, I was impressed with her work ethics and admired her physique. I decided to strike up a conversation with her, Ronaye was very warm and friendly. She set up a consultation in which she listened, non judgmentally, to my concerns and gave advice. I immediately put Ronaye's suggestions into place.

I started receiving training and nutritional support from Ronaye with great success. While training with Ronaye, she provided me with physical and emotional support. I was re-educated on proper nutritional information.

Through the guidance Ronaye has given me I have continued to lose weight, 19lbs in 7 weeks and am 2 lbs from my goal weight...I feel amazing!

Ronaye's unique approach has changed my life!
- C. Thomas

I have tried to lose weight dozens of times. Over the past 3 months I have lost 16lbs thanks to Ronaye's training and nutritional guidance. I can even do 60 pushups or 60 squats in a minute - not bad for a 73 year old man. I now weigh 208lbs and I am so excited to reach my overall goal.

Thanks Ronaye!
- Theo

I was 70 years old, 5’ 3 1/2” tall and weighed 190 pounds. I knew the extra weight I was carrying was affecting my health – I got short of breath very quickly, and it hurt my legs and feet to walk short distances. I had given up dieting because I have lost thirty pounds three or four times before and gained it all back plus another five or ten pounds each time.

Ronaye assured me that she could set up a program that would be do-able and wouldn’t require a great deal of time and would require me to make very little change to my diet which was already very healthy.

Ronaye tweaked my diet and set up an exercise program that only takes 45 minutes five days a week. I am happy to say I have lost 38 pounds and 32 and ½ inches. I have some muscle definition now, feel stronger and am a much happier person. I really missed walking and am now able to walk long distances without discomfort.

I have only got 2 pounds to go to reach my goal weight and then Ronaye and I will reassess and see if I need to lose more. Ronaye has been very supportive, kind and positive. She really listens to my concerns and is extremely knowledgeable. I have suffered from fibromyalgia for some time and Ronaye created an exercise program that started very gently and was very gradually increased as I felt I could do more, she is very in tune with what I am capable of and encourages me to push past what I think my limits are.

I would highly recommend Ronaye to anyone who needs a tailored food and exercise program because of any health or physical challenges. She is amazing!!
- L. Konings

Ronaye has been my personal trainer since 2010. She took the time when I first started my fitness program, to learn what I could and couldn't do and tailored a program for me. Since then it has been a quick progression of being able to do more physically.

Over the last year and a half, with her knowledge and motivation, I have been able to lose 150 lbs. She is friendly and always has an upbeat attitude which makes training that much more enjoyable. That being said she also knows when to kick your butt. I would definitely recommend her to anyone starting a new fitness program, you wont be dissapointed.
- S. Pesdirz

I have been training with Ronaye since 2010. When I started training with her I was 200 lbs and wearing a 2x in clothing. Now I weigh 120 lbs and am wearing an xs! With her program custom-tailored to my specific needs and goals, I was able to lose 80 lbs in a year.

Not only that, my strength and endurance really improved too. I can now run a 10k and with her help am currently training for other races. I have had other trainers before and never achieved the results I have achieved with Ronaye. She is knowledgeable and experienced in all the parts of personal training: nutrition, cardio, strength training and more. I have a recurring knee injury and Ronaye is very helpful in helping me overcome it. It was very important for me to find a trainer that is both friendly and motivating, and Ronaye has been the perfect fit. She is easy to work with. She is also tough but genuinely cares about her clients.

Ronaye will construct a program for you based on your overall fitness goal. The great workouts and easy nutrition plan will work for you as it has for me. If you are willing to work hard to achieve your goal give training with Ronaye a try you will not be disappointed.
- S. Nader

"It has been my good fortune over the past several years to have Ronaye as my personal trainer and I am definitely pleased with the results. I have found Ronaye to be a dedicated and reliable professional who is genuinely concerned about the physical well-being of her clients and their long-term health benefits. She seems to possess a sound understanding of the physiology and diet, balancing both weight training and caloric intake. Over the past two years she has given me valuable guidance on nutrition and fitness activities that promote my personal goals."

"The results I have achieved to date are largely due to Ronaye’s perfect combination of diverse training methods, individualized exercise programs and challenging yet achievable goal setting. Since working with Ronaye I have noted a marked improvement in my appearance, aerobic capacity and all around improved definition. Her professionalism, extensive knowledge and enthusiastic commitment to her work and ultimately her clients, provides the perfect scenario for success, helps to set the foundations for a healthier lifestyle, and sets her apart from others. Ronaye has been more than my trainer over the years; she is my motivator, inspiration, the voice in my head that makes me push myself to what I am capable of, and more importantly someone I consider a friend."

"Her professionalism is outstanding and drives me to focus both during and outside of our training sessions and has led me to try for my first ½ marathon with fantastic training results. Through consistent and positive feedback and encouragement, she retrained my attitude while I retrained my body. She quietly discovered the athlete in me that I never knew. I believe anyone who is serious about improving their physical health would benefit from utilizing Ronaye’s knowledge and experience."
- M. Faris

"Ronaye is an extremely dedicated and trustworthy Trainer. She keeps herself in 'Peak Attitude' in every situation and shows a tremendous amount of care for her clients."
- M. Gahan

"Ronaye has been my Personal Trainer for the last 7 months, I have had many trainers over the last 4 years, I always start off with the goal of losing weight and 2 weeks in I have either lost interest or I have given up, but Ronaye is different. I have lost over 30lbs and 15% body fat! Ronaye made my workouts hard and challenging but they are always fun. I feel like I am working out with an old friend, I can always talk to her and never feel judged. Ronaye provided a variety of workouts and when I asked to try something new, she would come back the next day with new challenges."

"I would recommend Ronaye as a Personal Trainer to everyone. She is knowledgeable, hard working and extremely friendly. I would never be able to replace Ronaye as a Trainer."
- S. Van Der Pauw

"Ronaye has been my Trainer for 11 months. From the beginning moment of any training session, Ronaye's attention was completely focused on me, her client and at all times I felt secure that I would progress safely under her guidance. She handled my concerns about my own body image with great sensitivity, as well as sensible advice and over the course of this year has inspired me to feel confidence that I can indeed change my life."

"I cannot speak highly enough of my regard and appreciation of her professionalism and personal warmth, which gave me (a non-athlete and novice to exercise) the confidence to attempt and the inspiration to persevere in striving for a better level of fitness."
- S. Hunter

"I have been training with Ronaye for the past year. I work from my home and wasn't getting enough physical exercise. I hadn't worked out for 10 years and wanted to start again but wanted to work out safely. I am so THANKFUL for Ronaye, I have scoliosis, a weak left shoulder and arm from repetitive work related movements, a weak ankle from a previous fall and feeling a little intimidated about working out again after such a long interval."

"I find Ronaye to be very motivating and inspiring, she keeps me on track to feeling and being healthier and stronger, I always look forward to my sessions. Every session with her moves me past self-imposed limitations, giving me a sense of accomplishment. I have definitely surpassed the goals I had set for myself. I achieved these goals a lot faster through Ronaye's extensive and multifaceted knowledge and expertise of different and never boring workout routines. I didn't know one could attack a certain body area in so many unique and enjoyable ways! She is AWESOME! I could never have accomplished alone what I have with Ronaye and in so short a time. She is always conscious and very careful of my weak areas, ensuring total safety and even alleviated the painful areas over time. Each week I was greeted with a smiling, happy face it made my commitment a very JOYFUL JOURNEY! I definitely have made the improvements I was looking for and am receiving lots of compliments from my husband and friends."

"I highly recommend Ronaye as an unparalleled, motivated Personal Trainer."
- A. Stefanek

Ronaye has been training me for several months and in that time I have taken my heart rate from "poor" to "elite athlete", my body has toned up and my overall health is great. I look forward to my workouts, Ronaye always keeps it fun and interesting. Not only has she inspired me to want to be fit for life but also taught me that I can achieve and push past any limits I set in the gym. She has been kind, caring and understanding of my battle with the bulge. Every day I look forward to learning something new with her. Thanks Ronaye.... You Rock!
- B. Wilson

Ronaye is my Trainer first, also a friend and very funny. I have a love/hate relationship with Ronaye. Hate when she is working me hard (kidding) but I love her when I leave because I love myself for the accomplishments that I have made. Without passing judgment Ronaye understood and dedicated herself to my needs. She took the time to get to know why and how I put weight on and has worked with me through those reasons. I have found a sincere friendship and gained strength in more "weighs" :) than in just my muscles. Ronaye proves that a woman can have it all.... and have beauty and brains too!!
