“I’ve lost 12 pounds and 31/2 inches off my waistline in just 12 weeks.” Most of my life I have battled with my weight. My biggest issue was my diet. I would never look at the way I should be eating, but eat what I wanted and not very healthy. I was feeling bad about myself and realized one day I needed to do something about my weight instead of always feeling sorry for myself. My husband brought to my attention one day in early November how he had come across One on One training with Natatia Gemmell. We had a meeting with Natatia and joined her training starting November 8 2016.
With her help in training, also helping us with a good healthy diet , I lost 12 pounds and 31/2 inches off my waist line in just 12 weeks. Natatia made an excellent point, we eat to live, we don't live to eat . I recommend everyone who wants have a healthier life style please join her. I feel better about myself and have more energy . I look forward to my training with her. She will make a difference in your life as she has done for me. My husband also has shown improvements in his waistline and his diabetes numbers have lowered. Thank you Natatia.
Ok 7 weeks and I have no more muffin top and my closet of clothes fits again! Can't wait to see what happens in the next 5 weeks.
“Thanks to Natatia’s guidance I am getting in the best shape of my life”
I had my consultation with Natatia on my 49th birthday. I was at my heaviest weight of 320lbs and desperate for help to get myself in better shape before turning 50.
I was unable to do a lot of things with my family and I wanted to make sure I would be around for my children and future grandchildren. I started my journey the next day, and over the past 6 months, I have lost over 60lbs.
Thanks to Natatia guidance I am getting into the best shape of my life. This journey has not been an easy one and I have struggled many times along the way but Natatia is always there to support me, encourage me and cheer me on. She is teaching me the benefit of eating clean and getting regular exercise and I am feeling great! I am looking forward to seeing where I will be after the next six months. This is not a diet, it is a lifestyle change. A few months later I’ve lost over 80 lbs and I’m still going!
Thank you Natatia, I honestly couldn’t do this without you.
“Less than a year later, I have dropped 50 pounds”
I started with Natatia in mid-November. My daughter had convinced me to go to her because of her experience training with older people. (I was 58) and the fact I was losing mobility quickly. When I started I was way overweight, had diabetes and hypertension, and was taking 8 to 10 pills a day. My body fat index was over 35.
Within a couple of months, Natatia had me eating correctly and into a regular exercise routine that had me losing weight.
Today less than a year later, I have dropped 50 pounds, has a body fat index of 9, have excellent mobility, and am taking 0 pills per day to treat my diabetes and hypertension (it is controlled through diet and exercise). Also, I have added a lot of muscle and feel great again! Hiring a personal trainer is not cheap, but how much is living longer worth to you? To me, every penny!
I highly recommend Natatia. Here commitment to your health will exceed your own.
“Thanks to Natatia I am much stronger in body and mind.”
I had my consultation with Natatia in the middle of May 2014. Due to back problems and muscle weakness from nerve damage, I wanted to try personal training as opposed to joining a “group” session and maybe risk injury, because my form was incorrect.
Natatia listens to all my woes, then worked out a program of ever-increasing difficulty, and challenge, to help improve my strength and flexibility. Her attention to detail ensures that your form improves and this helps reduce the risk of injury. It wasn’t easy, believe me, but Natatia has the ability to make you do more than you think you’re able to… “Give me five more”...I hear it in my dreams. She scrutinizes your Nutrition log, praises your good food choices, laments and suggests alternative options for your cheats and non-healthy choices. I joke that I hear her voice in my head when I reach for a cheat treat:)
By October I had lost 26 lbs and looked great for my nieces’ wedding back home!! After using the festive season as an excuse to cheat, I started back with the program again in the New Year and has almost reached an acceptable weight. Thanks to Natatia, I am much strong in body and mind.
“I stand tall, walk better, have more energy, and a great reduction in my arthritic pain,”
I starters working with Natatia in December of 2014 - barely able to move and constantly in pain.
By April 2015, my weight is down almost 30 lbs; I stand tall, walk better, have more energy, and have a great reduction in my arthritic pain. My diet is better - Life is better.
Natatia is a great encouragement, a wonderful trainer, I highly recommend her.

"I’ve lost 22 lbs, gained more strength and definition.”
I was feeling down and unhappy with my body. I didn’t have the skills or motivation I needed to lose weight and eat properly. In the past 9 months, Natatia has developed 3 training programs for me and has given me the knowledge and motivation I needed to become fit, feel good about myself, and stick to a healthy nutritional program. I’ve lost 22 lbs, gained more strength and definition.
I had been going to a gym for years, and although the facility is well equipped with plenty of fitness classes, it was not what I needed to achieve my goals. Have a one-on-one trainer put all the emphasis on me, and the programs were personally developed for me which I feel made a big difference because everyone is different. I would recommend Natatia to anyone.
“I reached my goal and feel that I have, in fact, exceeded my goals.”
After struggling with an injury, being inactive for over a year, and having tried every mainstream therapy available, I decided to take a charge and made the decision to sign up for personal training to help me work through my injury. Natatia was very understanding and motivating, pushing me to my limits all the while respecting my limitations.
Her knowledge in the field of health and fitness far exceeded my expectations and she not only motivated me physically but also inspired me to make real changes in my life to support my goals. Natatia showed me that my diet was just as important, if not more so than my workouts. She showed me how my current diet lacked balance and that “healthy food” I was eating wasn’t as good for me as I first thought. Natatia was relentless in checking into my diet, making sure I stayed on track. She never judged or scolded me for my many “cheats” but instead gave me ideas of alternative choices for next time. I now have the tools to continue eating a balanced diet that will help me stay at my goal for years to come.
Our sessions forced me to create a routine and build my workouts into my lifestyle. On those days where I felt drained of energy and wanted nothing more than to head home after work, those sessions helped me to stick to my routine. Natatia gently pushed me through my workout and I left feeling amazed at the energy I found to complete the exercises. Because of her motivation and knowledge, I reached my goal and feel that I have in fact exceeded my goal. I have recommended Natatia to family and friends who have also seen similar results and will continue to recommend her to others looking to reach their goal. I look forward to working with Natatia again in the future.
