I signed up with Irina because I wanted to build strength. I'm a petite frame and I was sick a few years ago and I just never gained back my strength. Irina was able to design a workout program for me to build strength and tone my muscles, in a progressive, safe way. It's hard work, but it's also fun. She knows when to push and when to encourage, and I truly feel that she is as invested in my fitness goal as I am. As we get older, our health becomes an investment, and Irina is definitely worth the investment! Helen Hardiman – Total body strength and conditioning
Irina is a fantastic trainer! She really knows her health and fitness and caters her workouts to her client’s needs. For example, she prepared a body weight training program for me when I was going away for a week without access to gym equipment. She both encourages and challenges me – her workouts are tough, but I always look forward to our sessions together and have felt the results in my strength and endurance as the weeks progress. I definitely recommend her! Kathryn Moore – Total body toning and conditioning
I was looking for a personal trainer that would come to my home as I am rather shy and don’t do well in large groups. This is how I found Irina. Right from the beginning I knew she would be the right fit. She had the 3 P’s: prepared, professional and personable. My goal was to gain muscle in my lower body and build core strength so I would be able to do more vigorous activities like completing the Grouse Grind. I was a little nervous at the start as I am sixty years old and have led a sedentary lifestyle. I was fearful that I would not be able to keep up, but Irina was wonderful. Irina is full of encouragement and she is realistic with what I needed to be doing. I was also made to feel like an individual client as the sessions were set for my particular abilities and goals. She is very knowledgeable about how our muscles work, how best to exercise our bodies, and how to maximize our efforts. I enjoyed the sessions very much and I loved the feeling I got afterwards of having worked as hard as I could. In a few weeks, I have noticed a difference in my body and I have Irina to thank for that. Misa Atagi – Lower body and core strengthening/conditioning
Irina is a fantastic trainer who knows what she’s doing and works hard to put together appropriate routines for me. As someone who works upwards of 70 hours a week, I love her flexibility and commitment to being there for me when I am available. She’s even created a whole new branch for her business because of me and my travels, which consists of online training – she does an amazing job even miles away and works to “tone in every time zone” :) Great personality, knows her stuff, and gets you results.
