I started working with Anjie because I wanted to become more comfortable in the gym. I didn’t grow up playing sports or really getting any fitness experience at all, so I’ve always been very intimidated by gyms and all of their equipment.

When I first met Anjie, I explained my background to her and we made a plan to introduce me to strength equipment while ensuring that everything moved at a pace comfortable enough to avoid burn out. Working with Anjie was always a highlight of my week. She was always patient with me, but firm enough to push me past what I thought my limits were (a lot of which were mental).

I didn’t get to work with her as long as I would have wanted to, due to COVID-19, but I’m confident now in my ability to strength train at any gym and continue my fitness journey outside of the Toledo area.

Thank you, Anjie, from the bottom of my heart!
