This review is for the Sports Performance Program that Gwen organizes. My 15 year old daughter started training with Gwen when she was 12 years old. She started off as one of the youngest athletes in the class. Gwen and her coaches made her feel at ease and walked her through the various exercises with patience, humor and professionalism. Fast forward 3 years later and Chloe is still energized after leaving a workout and looks forward to her next class.
She helped me to regain strength and range of motion, with no discomfort or pain.
Gwen put together a program specifically tailored for me that helped take me from believing I was just going to have to live with my limited motion and pain to almost 100% recovery.
Been limping for a year after foot surgery. Gwen quickly determined the problem. In only 2 weeks I’ve seen an amazing improvement. Wish I’d visited her sooner. Terrific lady and a great therapist.
