Cindi of Strength is a hidden gem in Long Beach. I have been in weekly training
sessions with her for several years and have never regretted our time together.
Everyone knows that working to stay in fitness can get old and boring from time to time. With Strength you will always be challenged in new and exciting ways each session. If you’re serious about your body….Strength is seriously for you.
I had the privilege of training with Cindi for a few weeks during a short stay in Long Beach. Before that I basically only did cardio because I was a typical girl who did't want big muscles. Cindi completely changed my concept of working out and toning my entire body. After only a few weeks of training sessions and Sunday morning boot camp work-outs, I felt better and was looking more fit and toned from head to toe. I have a new outlook on the idea of a total body workout thanks to Cindi.
Since I started working out with Cindi, my strength, balance and overall physical condition have improved 1,000 percent! Besides being right on top of things (no, one cannot get away with anything...witness her sign: There will be a $5.00 CHARGE FOR WHINING!! , Cindi trains with form, ability, and a sense of humor always in mind! Her clients become her friends; there is none better!
Cindi is magic.
A 2 day-a-week workout has brought me to 20 lbs or so lighter and in much better shape than ever. 24/7 she is in my head encouraging me, supporting me, and helps me to feed the whole family better. We eat slower. We can hear her say “If you don’t love it, don’t waste calories on it!” She’s helped me to realize my Strength and flexibility. Having a trainer who is brilliant and beautiful friend helps. She is professional and educated. I went to physical Therapy for an arthritic knee. Cindi was already having me do all of the exact same exercises. Now I am pain free. If there is pain from strain, she changes the exercises. I don’t weigh myself everyday anymore. Such freedom I have never known.
I have been training with Cindi for several years, I started her workout class in the park and continue to attend the class plus I have a private lesson during the week. I am a runner, half and full marathons. Cindi is also an experienced runner and knows the weights and exercises I need to perform in order to make my core stronger so I benefit and improve my running. She also makes sure that I perform the stretches that help me to stay injury free. When I am working with her I never feel that I will become injured. She is very knowledgeable and cautious with us. She makes sure our form is correct when performing in her classes. She is focused and expects you to give all that you can, but at the same time understands that everyone is at a different level. It doesn’t matter how many girls are in the class she has the experience and ability to work and push each one to the level that they are capable of. I have and will continue to train with Cindi and refer her to all, plus she is a very warm and compassionate person that you want to spend time with, even if she is pushing you to the max.
