Yvonne was heaven sent! Without her guidance, encouragement, and genuine care, I could have easily wasted money on a gym membership. I have a series of health issues, that she is helping me work through. In the two short months she has worked with me I have lost weight, inches, and most of all, body fat. As a certified nutritionist, she has structured a weight management program with supplements that works for me, and a training program that keeps me challenged and focused on my goals. I cannot thank Yvonne enough for all she continues to do for me. When it comes to certified personal trainers, she is definitely number 1, she really is!!!!!!!!

Meeting Yvonne in 2004 has really had quite an impact on my life. I hadn’t particularly ever been an enthusiastic proponent of structured exercise but in the last two years my energy level has gone up, I feel stronger and best of all, my spirits have lifted. Yvonne’s positive attitude and pleasant personality make going to the gym a treat instead of a chore.

Yvonne Hendricks creates a training program that is Fun and Challenging, yielding great results in a short period. Thanks to her I am now back on the right track and will always be grateful.

Through my PT sessions with Yvonne, I have learned workout routines that I can do anytime & anywhere at home or on vacation. She inspires me to exercise (both weight training and cardio) and she has taught me the importance of eating right without completely sacrificing the foods I like. I now eat 6 times a day and have lost “got-rid-of-weight”.

As a registered nurse, I always have taken care of everyone else, but have neglected to realize what I was doing to myself. Now I have met Yvonne, I am finally taking care of myself. I have always known what to eat, and how to exercise; but lacked the motivation to actually carry it through. My self-esteem was shot, and I hated to exercise. For many years, I have been to multiple trainers, on multiple diet pills, and have wasted hundreds of dollars in gyms that I never went to. After meeting Yvonne, things have changed. I am finally realizing what I am doing to my body, and the effects of my negative eating habits. Yvonne has made me believe in myself, have fun exercising, and actually like going to the gym. She has even changed my thoughts on eating, her knowledge base on nutrition is amazing. She listens, and makes a menu that actually goes to your lifestyle, believe me everyone says they do, but SHE DOES!!!!!!!!! I am going to live now, and be happy, and it took Yvonne to help me get there.

“Yvonne has trained myself, my husband, Taras, and my son, Paul (who never wanted to exercise, only play on the computer) and taught me ways in how I can be healthier for myself and for my own patients”. “I’ve even used some of her stretch and massage techniques on my patients”. “She even has trained me throughout my pregnancy.”
—Natalya Rodionova Trestman M.D., Yonkers, NY
The time that we trained together impacted my life by giving me more confidence to learn new and different techniques to make myself more physically fit. It also encourages me to take a more positive outlook to be more health conscious by always exercising and eat healthier foods. I learned how important it is to be physically active and talk to other people about the benefits of exercise.

Yvonne has been a positive force in my life. With her guidance and comprehensive method, she has helped to reshape my body to a level of toneness I had thought unattainable and motivate me to a healthier overall lifestyle.”

I am annual marathon runner. Your explanation regarding MHR and percentage use for fat burn really changed the outcome of my work-outs. I had been feeling tired for months and tried your 65% ratio for 2 weeks and then altered it back to 75%. I not only dropped 4 lbs. but I have improved my overall productivity during my run. I can run faster for a longer period of time and don’t feel as tired. It has made all the difference! Thank You Yvonne.

I was recently diagnosed as a diabetic and I don’t know why but my doctor never explained to me about glucose levels being regulated through protein and carbohydrate ingestion values. Since reviewing your website, and in just 2 weeks, my sugar levels are now under control and I haven’t had a 220mg reading since! You are heaven-sent Yvonne!
