I have worked with personal trainers before, but none have even come close to being as good as Jill. Her Zumba classes are a blast and highly addictive!!! It doesn’t matter if you’ve never taken one before, Jill makes you feel so comfortable that you’ll feel as if you’ve been taking them forever. Not only is Jill a wonderful trainer, she is a wonderful friend. She has a heart of gold and I can promise you that one session with Jill will be all you need to gain a friend for life. I consider myself very fortunate to have her in my life…

Jill has inspired me to lose 75 lbs and 5 sizes!
Barbara’s Success Story
I am writing this letter to let you know how much I appreciate the efforts of one of your staff members, Jill Ackiron Moses. Jill is the main reason I actually go to the gym and it is because of her that I have become a healthier, more active person.
Back in October 2009, I was very depressed and feeling down about myself because of my weight. I had been crying to both my husband and my friend about how bad I felt about myself. My friend told me to stop crying and to come to the gym as her guest.
When I walked into the gym that first day, I was obviously obese and I wasn’t able to keep up on the elliptical machine for more than 5 minutes. I was in tears. I don’t even want to tell you how much I weighed at the time because I am still embarrassed. My friend suggested that I join the gym and try personal training. Reluctantly, I accepted the personal training plan suggested by staff member, Steve, and waited for Jill to call.
I have to say that I wasn’t really motivated at first, but Jill’s bubbly attitude was conveyed even over the telephone. I started training with her and found that I wanted to try harder and harder each time. She adapted my routine to fit my needs and helped me recognize my strengths and weaknesses. She always followed up with me and kept me interested. She even convinced me to attend her Zumba class. I had never taken any type of class before and I am quite awkward to say the least. But with Jill’s help, I now am a regular attendee and enjoy Zumba whenever I can.
I am proud to say that Jill has inspired me to lose 75lbs and 5 sizes at this point. Each time I feel down or want to stop, she inspires me with encouraging words and compliments in and out of class. I don’t know what it is, but her patience and positive attitude make exercise enjoyable and this comes out during her classes. I even got my 13 year daughter to join Synergy and come to Jill’s classes with me. She has asked for personal training sessions, only with Jill, as a Christmas gift!
Thank you for having Jill at the gym. She is truly a gem!

I can’t even express how thrilled I am that Jill is my trainer. She is so good at what she does, and takes my complaining in the nicest way.
I believe that things happen for a reason, and Jill came into my life
at the perfect time. I needed to exercise, lose weight and just get healthier in general. All three are being accomplished and I really hardly complain anymore.
I certainly would recommend Jill whole heartily.

Every week, evenings.., Jill is there early without fail… smiling, joking, and motivating us. As a group of women, we were all chose to improve our quality of life through, fitness, laughter and encouragement. As a parent, I know we all get weighed down by our hectic schedules.., with Jill’s help we all make time for ourselves.
Jill”s classes every week, gives us the opportunity, to burn off the weeks’ stress and calories. Jill’s generosity has enabled us, as a community of parents, to support each others goals and encourage each others well being. It is great to see the smiles on everyones faces at the end of the class. Sometimes, the kids tag along and we all get a laugh out of the kids dancing along to Zumba from 7 yrs old to seniors in high school. It has been a wonderful experience that we plan on continuing for a very long time. Not only is Jill, professional and reliable..,she is a genuinely good person and her positive attitude shapes the attitude of the whole group. I now also attend Jill’s boot camp at her studio, and my own health goals are becoming more and more attainable. Jill is a great communicator and is All About “solutions and living well” in a realistic and attainable way. She’s like a stand up comedian/motivational speaker/ and Zumba instructor rolled into one. From all the “Moms in valley stream sd 13” Thank you for all that you do.

Jill is certified in a multitude of varied activities — Zumba, TRX, yoga, weight training. Her Zumba classes are fun and easy to follow (unlike others I’ve taken!). She is always striving to learn new things and improve her craft. I highly recommend her!
Learning Why Training is Important
MJW’s Success Story
I have had arthritis and Parkinson’s for over 11 years. I feel the exercises have helped improve my range of motion and my balance. With Jill’s help, I’m feeling much better. Jill is a wonderful trainer – she not only demonstrates but explains the “hows” and “whys” of each exercise.

Training CAN be fun and effective!
Joan’s Success Story
Both my husband and I have been training with Jill since early July of this year. We are
her first clients at 5:30 a.m. To say that Jill has changed our lives would be a perfect assessment
of the effect she has had on us.
Since she is aware of our need to rush off to our business in Brooklyn, she is always on time.
Her appearance is fresh, her mood is bright, her techniques are learned, and her approach is always professional.
Jill began our sessions with questions involving our age, our health, our abilities, our outlook on
life, our eating habits and our goals. She explained her methods and her ambitions for us. Every
meeting left us anxious for the next.
She listens to my husband’s corny jokes and laughs along with him; she is so respectful of our age and our abilities. She guides us through our work outs, makes suggestions, offers her gentle “critique” and makes the entire experience a pleasure. We easily progress to the next level without
ever feeling the pressure.
We have trimmed down; we hurt less; we laugh more and even getting out of bed at 4:45 a.m.
is not so “terrible” all because of Jill.
Please know that we have gone to other facilities; had other personal trainers and tried this regime several times in the past. We never had fun doing it. This new venture at the gym has been absolutely beneficial and pleasing. We look forward to a long standing relationship.
Very truly yours,
J. G Baldwin NY
