EDUCATED client(s) about balance, core strength, and stretching.

Results: Provided targeted training in core strength and balance, combined with focused stretching to complement a strength training regimen. Client has seen decrease in pesky injuries and has been motivated to stick to training plan; and despite advanced age, client remains active and energetic.

STEEL BLUE changed my life! Not only did I learn about a strong body, but with Leslie’s fantastic knowledge of human anatomy, I learned that stretching both before and after working out is key to feeling that total sense of a ‘body in good working condition.’ No gym I ever previously attended focused so very well on the importance of this part of the workout. Leslie truly helps us to be STEEL BLUE FIT!

I have been in continuous personal training with Brian Waas for almost three years.  My initial goal was to maintain my agility, balance, strength and endurance, which I was sure I could not do on my own.  With Brian's guidance and supervision, I have exceeded all my expectations.  He is thorough in his planning, but always cautious.  He insists on proper warm-up and session-ending stretching.  Each main session has a sound mix of strength work, aerobic exercise, and balance activity.  I have been consistently impressed with his knowledge of physiology, and have taken advantage of his special capability in deep massage/body work.

My husband and I have been training with Leslie for almost nine years. She works mostly on our core strength and balance. I consider myself to be fit for a woman of 69 years, and my husband is amazingly strong and flexible. He is 76 years old and is always busy and moving. Leslie plays a very big part in our well-being.

DEVELOPED a specific training program for an Olympian athlete.

Results: Improved upon athlete’s training by solving a key problem – develop core strength and power without adding muscle weight to a long-distance runner. Client won a bronze medal for the 10,000-meter race in the 2008 Summer Olympics.

REHABILITATED injured athlete(s).

Results: Assessed muscle imbalances and weaknesses following surgery and initiated a comprehensive plan for recovery which included strength training and massage therapy. Client has successfully recovered from back surgery and renewed regular activity, including biking, kayaking, and golf. A second client’s recovery from wrist surgery left surgeons amazed at her unprecedented progress.

Leslie was unwilling to give up on me and pushed me to make progress on my plan for recovery. Because of her spirit, I was inspired and determined. Despite having the need for multiple rods and pins to put my wrist back together, I now enjoy almost complete mobility, and I have quickly regained strength as well.

DESIGNED a comprehensive program for client who is at high risk for osteoporosis and has post-mastectomy scar tissue.

Results: Designed a comprehensive strength training program while providing periodic myofascial release therapeutic massage. Assessments have shown increase in muscle strength and release of scar tissue; x-rays tests have shown an increase in bone density over the past two years.

DESIGNED a comprehensive program for a client suffering from rheumatoid arthritis.

Results: Developed a program specifically designed to reduce pain and swelling and add strength and balance to improve the day-to-day life of an RA patient. Client has lost weight and added strength and balance, and enjoys reduced inflammation and pain in her knees, and her doctors are amazed by her transformation.

Leslie is patient and understanding and has taken my fitness farther than I thought possible. She knows just how to train me so that I don’t have a flare-up of rheumatoid arthritis. Leslie encourages me to work hard, but also knows just when I need to back off to avoid damage, to rest, take a day off, and repair. Thank you!

SERVED clients’ needs through massage therapy and continuing education.

Results: Worked to educate herself and her clients to best serve their various needs. Clients respond with glowing reviews about massage therapy and more!

Leslie's massages have been the most beneficial of all of the therapists I've gone to over a fifteen-year span. I am an ex-jock and an active tennis player with torn ligaments in my hands/wrists and a torn rotator cuff. Thanks, Leslie, for all you are doing to keep this ol’ man going.

I’ve known Leslie for 23 years. She has been my friend, inspiration, motivator and my miracle worker. Leslie is the epitome of youth and vitality. She is always looking for ways to educate herself and her clients, on the most beneficial practices for the health of our minds and body. She is very passionate about her work and I thank her for her dedication.

Seven years ago I was having trouble with my balance after surgery and a friend of mine gave me some really good advice. She said "Sandy, you keep falling and hurting yourself and you need to do yourself a favor and go see my trainer, Leslie." Well, that was some of the best advice I have ever gotten and I often find myself saying the same thing to friends of mine. You see, Leslie really is the best at what she does as a trainer and as a massage therapist--simply the best! She is passionate about keeping up with the latest education available pertinent to her career in order to serve her clientele to the fullest. I certainly rely on her to keep me "put together". Thank you, Leslie, for seven years of personal care and friendship.
