I hate to exercise… I don’t want to join a gym!


It often hurts when I bend or move...


I'm tired of always starting a new diet...


I have trouble (walking, opening jars, climbing stairs)…

“I want to get more active and feel more energetic. At the same time, I’m a bit ambivalent…”

Real challenges in your life make it difficult to get fit and eat better, or lose weight. Also, the couch and TV entice you. Equally important, finding time to exercise is a struggle. Not to mention, you may worry that you will not succeed.  

Of course, you also grumble about being lazy, but it’s cold out… or hot. Or raining.


You want support that improves your potential for success

To begin with, I listen to your fitness and health concerns, and find inventive ways to address them. In response, I create a fitness program to improve your endurance (that means you can do things longer) and strength. In particular, I train you to move without aches and pains.

Additionally, I review your relationship to food and eating. In fact, I’ll refer you to a nutritionist or dietitian if you want additional assistance.


Personal Training in Manhattan 


I believe in in your ability to improve your fitness level and health. To begin with, I understand bodies and how to help people who may not like exercise, move from reluctant to eager exercisers, without joining a gym (unless you want to).

At the same time, I believe you can think and act differently. Accordingly, you start by stating your fitness and health goals. Then, we explore how you act now. Finally, you identify what motivates you to change.

Correspondingly, I design a fitness program that is flexible and realistic. Equally important, it fits with your lifestyle, I just happen to offer an approach that’s easy for you to start, as well as keep up.

Three Unique Ways to Work with Me

All things considered, to get, or stay, fit and healthy, you have to be consistently active. Generally speaking, you will do that only if it’s convenient and enjoyable. So, I offer alternatives to joining a gym that make it easier to get started as well as keep it up: 


Aquatic Personal Training in Manhattan

In Your Pool

On-One-One Training & Aquatic Rehab (Chronic Conditions, Pre/Post Surgery, Sports Injuries) 

Do you have access to a pool? If you want to get in shape safely and quickly, aquatic workouts workouts don’t stress your knees, joints or back. And you don’t even have to know how to swim!


In-Home Personal Training Manhattan

In Your Home

Trekking to an outside gym isn’t always feasible, so I offer an alternative. Specifically, you can train in the comfort and privacy of your home, which provides added convenience (and one less excuse).

Apartment Gym Training in Manhattan

Your Apartment Gym

If your building has a formal gym, it takes minimal effort to access it. As a result, you reduce the effort to start a new activity.


“Jacqueline is a terrific aquatics instructor and trainer. She addressed grip issues in my hands (from arthritis), and discomfort in my spine (from fused lower vertebrae). We worked on aquatic exercises that improved my alignment, flexibility, and strength, while avoiding pain while I worked out. She was responsive to my physical limitations.”


Linn M.

“[I] retired [and} decided… to devote… time to getting in shape. Jacqueline understands bodies and how to help people… move from reluctant to eager exercisers. …I love that we can hold them in my apartment. …I can say with assurance that Jacqueline knows what she is doing. She is also fun to work with. I am delighted with the results.” 


Sondra P.

“I worked with, and got help from Jacqueline, training in my apartment building’s gym. As a result, I lost eight pounds and my balance and upper body strength have improved considerably. …I’m able to walk farther, use my arms better and fit into my clothes better. I feel much better and can exercise more effectively.”
