Over 3 years ago, I asked Brenda to help me get in shape for my WFX- fit test. The test is required for my job as a wildland firefighter, and I was worried that my poor level of fitness (due in large part to my sedentary, student lifestyle, and also because of back problems,) would lead to failure. She sat down with me and came up with an intuitive plan. Using exercise and nutrition, she explained what would be necessary. She worked with my crazy schedule, and was there with me every step of the way…. literally. We did a lot of stairs! The workouts and lifestyle changes were challenging, but so is the fit test. With her unwavering support, I got in shape and passed the test! The job is seasonal, and so when the same issue came up the following two years, she was right there with me again, and again. I am incredibly grateful to have her in my life, and for everything that she has done for me. I love my job, and I could not have done it without her. Brenda is an amazing coach and trainer because of her intense determination. She is the type of person that can, and does, make anything happen. This is because she digs in to everyskill and piece of information within her reach, and then never gives up.
