Hear what one of Ruthie’s clients has to say about her:
The JCC has an outstanding training program and it includes a phenomenal trainer, Ruthie. I had back surgery 2 years before I began training with Ruthie. She is flexible and works with my schedule. On rough days when I don’t feel like going to the gym, I think of my trainer and become motivated to get to the gym and get it done! She also checks in with me after workouts to see how I am doing and even suggests homework to help set goals for my continued success. I have lost over 30 lbs. and 3 pant sizes in less than a year. She is knowledgeable in different activities to use according to my limitations due to my surgery (and future knee surgery in 6 months). Without the JCC’s trainer program, I would never have the success I have attained today.
