It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial for Aimee Stevens
I met Aimee through my gym Cityfitness, Johnsonville in Wellington NZ mid-2009. I approached Aimee as she was running kettlebell sessions and I wanted to add something new to my training programme. After the first session I felt comfortable with Aimee that I signed her up as my Personal Trainer until she left in May 2010.
Aimee has a very warm and friendly personality that she was able to quickly put me at ease. Learning a new technique was very scary but I was impressed with Aimee’s skills and ability to teach with such ease it made sessions challenging but enjoyable. Towards Christmas, Aimee introduced a 5 week intensive programme which included a combination of personal training and kettlebell sessions plus a meal plan. We each set personal goals and mine was to lose 5 kg by Christmas. Overall, the journey was challenging but not only did I lose weight I also developed core muscle strength. I had never achieved the type of results I had with Aimee with any other Personal Trainer which I credit her ability to motivate and extend my abilities both mentally and physically as key to her success.
Another point of difference I found with Aimee compared to other Personal Trainers was how she dealt with any injuries I had. For example, I would normally stop weight training due to lower back pain but Aimee would watch my technique and correct me on it which enabled me to continue. She also provided great advice on stretching techniques when I developed knee problems.
It is with much sadness that Aimee is leaving us as I feel she will be a great loss to the gym. I will miss her bubbly personality as she has a natural way of making people feel good about themselves which is a real credit to her.
I would like to thank Aimee for all she had taught me. She is a true inspiration not only in her professional life but also in her personal life as she continues her travels onto other countries. I count myself very fortunate to have met her even if it was only for a short time.
I would highly recommend Aimee as a Personal Trainer and would be more than happy to provide a verbal testimonial if needed.
All the best Aimee, stay safe and I hope you return to New Zealand soon.
