Before meeting with Ruthie my knowledge of nutrition was very minimum. I knew what was “good for you” but only in a generic sense. Ruthie is extremely knowledgeable in the field and she was able to break down what I needed to focus on in order to perform at my highest level on the field as well as in my job. She was able to implement a personalized nutrition plan specific to my needs. Since I began working with her I have felt a drastic change in mental clarity as well as athletic performance. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone that is looking to take their athletic ability and/or general health to the next level.

Ruthie has been my “go-to” personal trainer for about 2 years. When I first started working with her, my goal to “tone up and get in shape”. What I got was that, plus so much more. Unlike typical trainers I’ve worked with in the past, Ruthie wasn’t all about pushing me to my absolute max (read “burn-out” to the point I gave up). Instead, we focused first on correcting dysfunctional movement patterns so that I was actually working the muscles meant to work in various movements & exercises, rather than relying on the stronger muscles that liked to take over weaker ones. The result was more symmetry in my body and a much stronger core such that I was able to advance my training without burning out and more importantly, without injury. Ruthie is patient and encouraging, challenging “just the right amount” without going overboard, and very supportive. She held me accountable to my stated goals but gave me enough leeway to get back on the path when I veered off without making me feel bad about myself. Ruthie offers the best in personal training and nutritional counseling, I highly recommend her!
