SPECIALIZING IN SENIOR EXERCISE, WEIGHT LOSS, NUTRITION, FLEXIBILITY, JOINT AND BACK PROBLEMS, NEW TO RUNNING, NEW TO EXERCISE, SPORT CONDITIONING
I know wanting to better your health and get fit is a priority for everyone, but making that leap and figuring out what to do about your physical fitness can be tough.
I hate gyms, always have. The comparisons to others, the what do I do next, all of us have had that same feeling in gyms. And do you want to use a machine after 25 other people have sweated on that pad and just wiped it with a towel?? How do you not feel self-conscious at a gym with 100 people when you have back and knee issues, are in pain, are overweight, don’t know how machines work, (yes even I have fallen off a treadmill) or work out with a 25-year-old personal trainer who is more interested in picking up the hot girl that just walked in? Or the best, going to a class of 50 people, not being able to see the instructor and watching ½ the class do things just wrong and hurting themselves??
But beyond all that, HOW DO YOU GET MOTIVATED TO WORK OUT??
I specialize in getting people feeling strong again; especially people that haven’t been active physically in a long time, if ever, in their lives. My fitness studio in San Jose CA is private, just me and you working out to get you feeling confident and healthy in your own body which makes you mentally happier also. Working out one on one (or 2 if you have a friend or partner) allows me to know what your body can do and how to get you to where you want to go.
My clients never get hurt and many have been with me for years.
The Classes are live-streamed and are small, 4-6 clients so I can help everyone do exercises correctly. Only clients that have private sessions with me will be able to do the classes live, but all can watch and participate online. These are the only classes that online participants can interact with me and clients in real time and feel part of the class experience. They are fun and will motivate you at home also. https://trainwithv.TV

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING
Vanessa is amazing! I’ve never had a personal trainer so I wasn’t sure what to expect but I needed someone to hold me accountable and push me. When I found her through a google search and researched her business model, I felt it would be the perfect fit for me. She comes to my house, she doesn’t make me work out in a gym, and she knows her stuff. I explained to her over the phone that I wanted to build endurance and get in shape for an adventure trip I booked. She showed up and immediately started telling me the areas she could tell (just by watching me standing) that I was feeling pain and needed to correct/strengthen. It was frightening how correct she was. I’ve had 3 sessions with her so far and she works me relentlessly, but in a good way. I look forward to a very long, life-changing workout journey with her.LISA R.
I started working out with Vanessa a couple of years ago, right after I got married, in hopes of getting in better shape as I was hoping to get pregnant. Little did I know how soon that would happen! I have to say that working out with Vanessa not only kept me fit and strong during my pregnancy, but I feel like I had a pretty easy labor and delivery because of how strong I was! I only took 2 weeks off after baby was born, and we picked right back up. She has always designed workouts that are made specifically for me, and every workout is new and exciting! She pushes me to be better. She is honest, encouraging, and will make you work so hard, without even noticing! I feel like Vanessa is family! I love working out with her, and moving closer to my fitness goals.*CHRISTY S.
As a 68 year old unfit man I thought I was beyond redemption but I decided to see if i could make one last effort to turn the corner. Amazingly Vanessa provided the answer. She has designed specific routines to work on my weaknesses and has pushed me to do things that I did not think possible – I am even jogging a little! She has a wicked sense of humour which often helps me to ignore the protests my body is making. She has made a real difference to the way I look at exercise and I will be eternally grateful. I cannot recommend too highly.*GRAHAM C.
I’ve been working with Vanessa only a few weeks and already see the benefit. Our focus is on getting my body into alignment so I’m not re-injuring while at the same time pushing it further to build-up my strength. She doesn’t waste time – get’s right the workout knowing just how to push. And, she’s personable and supportive. As for nutrition, we’re starting with my reframing my mindset instead of food intake. Important reframing for me! She’s a gem!This customer rated you highly for work quality, professionalism, responsiveness, value, and punctuality.*IRENE K.
Vanessa is awesome. I really like the fact that she comes to my house as I have now no excuses not to exercise. She has the right balance of being a good motivator and being able to push me out of my comfort zone. Vanessa was able to identify problem areas immediately and developed a plan to address them. She has a great personality and a very positive attitude. I highly recommend her.*MARINA L.
Vanessa took on the difficult job of rehabilitating a 65 year old family member after a hospital stay. She assessed her very well, gave her clear directions, provided instructions to us regarding support materials, and kept her on task and encouraged. Also, she is very reasonably priced. We highly recommend Vanessa!*HOLLY M.
