From the start I was confident that I would receive high quality, tailored instruction.  However, I did not know that this work would shift my definition of myself, and eventually, would shift my I can, I do and I wills....


The work has increased my knowledge, overall strength and, perhaps most importantly, it has impacted my concept of who I am and what I am capable of.

I’m so glad I crossed paths with Hilary. I wasn’t seeking a personal trainer and yet it turns out it was just what I needed, or at least Hilary was what I needed.


My previous exposure had been observing trainers at the gym and I wasn’t impressed. But I started going to Hilary’s outdoor bootcamps and when the weather got cold, I realized that I wanted more.

 I began attending training with the simple goal of moving more and being held accountable after two years of remote work with minimal movement. I was nervous and felt guilty that I had “let myself go”. However, what I continue to receive out of training sessions at TGCF training sessions in an extremely welcoming, inclusive and positive environment created by Hilary that truly makes you feel good about your body ands it’s abilities.
