CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

WHAT CLIENTS SAY ABOUT ALEENA:

"Working with Aleena has been a blessing in so many ways. Coming out of 2 years of chronic illness and 7 years of back pain, I had no idea how to physically rehab my body. I tried on my own for a bit and ended up discouraged and thinking I’d never be able to move comfortably. Aleena thoughtfully provided me with consistent training centered around breath, ribcage positioning, and stabilizing exercises. Everything was body weight, so I didn’t need to buy any new equipment! Within days I started noticing a difference, and a month later I was comfortably running over 2 miles, able to move about my day without my back constantly hurting, and looking forward to the potential of doing triathlons. My whole body is now moving much better and I can see visible shifts in my feet, ankles, pelvis, and back. She’s very engaging, makes her sessions fun and within your ability range, and draws from an incredible amount of knowledge on biomechanics."

"I have worked with trainers before, but Aleena outclasses them in her thirst for knowledge. Along with her strong fitness chops, Aleena is well-versed in the human body-biomechanics, injury prevention

She will help you achieve your goals to get or stay in shape. and her training is geared to improve your day life. After a few sessions, you will feel better, which translates to better performance outside of the gym, whether that is running cycling, or playing a sport."

When I started training with Aleena I had chronic back pain and a litany of injuries related to my dance career. Through thoughtful, personalized training Aleena has gotten my body so much stronger, and taught me how to look after myself. She's been a true partner to me, advising on nutrition, teaching me kinstretch and breathing techniques, and helping me achieve my goals. I highly recommend Aleena if you're looking for a knowledgable, engaged trainer who will offer you more than just exercises in a gym.

I enjoy training with Aleena because it's helpful to have her cue the movements and give each of us specific feedback on our form. I can feel myself gaining more awareness and learning more about proper form as the weeks progress earlier, but I am learning a lot more about my own body and proper technique with the live sessions.

"Before working with Aleena I was wearing a knee brace all of the time because of the pain in my knee. I was researching knee surgeons for a knee replacement and now, after 4 months, I am relatively pain free and I haven't worn a knee brace since April. Thank you for giving me a much better quality of life and the ability to enjoy playing with my new grandson."

○ Sharon S ○

"I've been training with Aleena for several years now, working on Olympic weightlifting and overall strength. Aleena is the best! She brings a positive energy and focus to every workout, and does a great job at teaching proper form so that I feel confident with my lifts. Aleena also offers advice on nutrition, and has incorporated Kinstretch techniques into our workouts to improve range of motion. I highly recommend Aleena to anyone looking to improve their strength and form."

"I am a 40-something working mom, and Aleena is my fitness guardian angel! Although I was in pretty good shape and had worked with other trainers before, I had no idea how good I could feel until I started working with Aleena. It was only after training with her that I realized how much tightness I had gotten used to carrying around in my neck, chest, shoulders, and hips. Her emphasis on breathing and movement exercises in addition to strength training has improved my sense of well-being more than I thought possible. I haven’t felt this strong, flexible, and free of aches and pains since my early twenties! Aleena is a joy to work with in every respect. She is extraordinarily smart, knowledgeable, professional, and devoted to her clients. She pushes you hard but with a kindness and warmth that leaves you feeling entirely accepted and unselfconscious even as you’re challenged to meet new goals. Her level of focus and attention during sessions is incredible: she watches your every movement and fine-tunes everything for the best results. When I recently sprained my ankle, she was a godsend. I walk out of every session feeling a glow of health and energy!"

 "I had the pleasure of working alongside Aleena when I lived in NYC in 2019. I am confident when I say that she is someone that will always put in the hard work so that she can consistently achieve the desired outcomes that her clients deserve. Even to this day we are in constant contact brainstorming ideas off each other to ensure that we are bringing the highest level of efficiency to our clientele."

Aleena has been a tremendous asset to all of our students, teaching them how to use and control their bodies for dance and for life. Aleena makes classes and workshops fun, gives each student attention in a group setting, and tailors each session based on objectives and needs. We love working with her.
