I met Sheryl Wilson while recovering from a neck injury. I observed the careful yet challenging way in which she trained a client. Sheryl took the time to talk to me about my fitness goals. As an older person, I was interested in working with a trainer who understood how to increase core strength and aerobic capacity. Sheryl understood that working on balance, coordination and increasing elasticity was important as well. She really listened to me and asked many questions. She designed a workout that met those goals. Sheryl revises your program and she is constantly challenging you, yet she is extremely mindful of any restrictions. Her knowledge about the body and exercise physiology and her ability to really look at the client as they work make each session a rewarding experience.
If you are looking for a caring trainer who pushes you (in a good way) and who honestly cares about your body and work-outs, you have come to the right person! Sheryl is the best of the best. I have grown up with trainers all my life, starting in high school, and I have never met anyone as fantastic as Sheryl. She genuinely cares about your goals and your body. I moved to New York and my husband and I wanted to get pregnant. She trained me throughout my entire pregnancy and taught me facts about my body and how it is psychically changing to protect myself from injury and back pain. I went through my pregnancy feeling great! I even trained with her the day before I delivered! And when I was ready to get back into it after having my baby, she was right there with me. Sheryl is supportive to no end. She helps you with your goals and she makes you stick to them and be accountable! Sheryl works at getting results and is a fantastic trainer!
I wish I had found Sheryl earlier- while I was still pregnant. She has helped my diastasis immensely and is incredibly patient and attentive. I do not believe there is another person more qualified in pre and post natal training (especially with moms left with diastasis or hernias that they may not even be aware of!!). I almost have my pre baby body back! The flexibility to use Skype to train with her has been invaluable as a mom of two young children.
Dear Sheryl, It has been mentally and physically rewarding working with you this past year. I have finally after 55 years of working out with various people - in various countries - in various gyms gotten the idea of using my core muscles. What a surprise I had when I signed up for hooping lessons to find out that you are such a capable, knowledgeable instructor on pre and post - partum fitness. The frosting on the cake is that you are such a pleasure to work with - fun - and so sincerely interested. I plan to keep up this relationship for a long time going forward. Sincerely, LFS, NYC
