I just wanted to celebrate with you that I’ve officially lost 10 pounds since October when I first met you! Your bootcamp class was a real jump start to that process, and I’m so happy to be continuing inside with you throughout the winter 🙂 You continue to make our workouts fun, different every time, and effective. Looking forward to 10 more pounds lost!! I’ll keep sharing information about your class with my friends and see who else we can get in the gym with us.

Shari brings to the table a diverse and challenging set of workouts, routines and ideas. I will be turning 40 this year, and feel stronger than ever thanks to Shari’s one-on-one coaching and her unique ability to tailor routines to individual needs and goals. Being an avid mountain biker, rock climber and hiker, I need to be well-rounded in the way my body performs. Shari’s balance on core, strength, endurance, flexibility and proper nutrition allows me to stay lean and strong to excel in my mountain athletics. Her attention to detail is amazing when it comes to ensuring proper form so you can get the most of your workouts, and prevent injury. Shari is simply the best at what she does, and will get you to your fitness goals with an addictive positive attitude, and a smile on her face. Thanks Shari!

Hi Shari, I thought you might like to know I am almost 100% on the back issue. Rarely do I have pain even though my doctor told me my back was a total mess. She cannot believe the progress and I owe a lot of that to you.
I have joined the Longmont Rec Center and I love it. So many classes, beautiful equipment. I realize now how outdated the equipment at GAC really was I take a body pump class, it is so hard, never have I had a class like that. I can already see results.
I hope this finds you well and happy. I sing your praises to anyone who will listen.
Shari tailored every workout for me. She took special care to teach me workouts I thought I would never try on my own. During my 3 month training session Shari mentored me through a detoxifying cleanse helping me to shop and prepare for the week long en-devour. Rather than push me to lose weight fast, she helped to guide my eating habits towards a maintainable diet that helped my body build muscle and lose fat. Her workouts involved a fun combination of heavy lifting and functional exercises that made my whole body feel more capable. I feel more healthy and strong now than I have since college and the before after measurements prove this great feeling with a total loss of 4% body fat. For anyone looking to improve their quality of life through fitness and nutrition and have a great time while doing it, Shari is a perfect fit!!
Thank you so much Shari!!Chrissy

I have been working with Shari for over a year. I have seen amazing results. I am 53 and have had knee surgery (ripped quad) 1996, and back surgery in 2005. I have played competitive volleyball in the past but after my back surgery, I never thought I would ever play again. Shari has helped me get my body back into shape so I can play volleyball again. She even helped with my shoulder which I have had chronic pain since 1998 from overuse. She has also helped with hormone imbalances. Shari has helped me get on a regular fitness regimen, enjoy better nutrition, and supports me through thick or thin.
Shari makes workouts fun and different so you stay motivated. Shari is very attentive to your needs and listens when something doesn’t feel right and adjusts your workout accordingly. Her workout programs are not a walk in the park but that is what makes the workouts fun. First, you think that you would never be able to do “that” and then the next thing you know you are doing it. Just amazing!
You do have to take responsibility and dedication to improving your fitness level and must be willing to put the effort in. Shari will push you as far as you are willing to go. Shari will help you with core strength, balance, increase your metabolism and flexibility while making your workouts fun and motivating
I love being in shape and to have more energy to play volleyball. Come join the fun.

Take one look at Shari and you will become motivated! I have been training with her for the past 4 years and she continues to keep me motivated and always has a new and exciting workout planned. I maintain my weight and enjoy getting stronger. Thanks for the love light and balance you bring to my life.

Working with Shari has been Wonderful! She’s been super focused on creating customized workouts for me, working through them and whatever questions I have, while also demonstrating motivation and patience every step of the way! It’s obvious she understands bodies and how they work. She’s “tuned into” what my body & I need vs. just putting me through some “standard” set of weights and moves – I’m recovering from a serious injury, so that’s really important, which she has completely figured out: it’s about me and what my body needs and will respond to. I loooove the feeling of getting stronger and more balanced, which keeps me motivated to keep coming back for more!

I’ve worked with quite a few trainers and Shari is by far the best. She truly cares about her clients’ overall health – mental, emotional, AND physical – and takes the time to work with you on a program to get you healthy and fit.Shari incorporates not only physical fitness with weight training, cardio intervals and balance and stability, but also nutritional health and a yogic mindset. She is always supportive and understanding while tailoring workouts to my needs. The only reason I’m not working with her now is I moved out of state and I will miss her every day!
I worked with Shari on a weekly basis for several years. During that time, I’ve found that she is always on top of current fitness practices. She is always changing up her fitness routines to keep me motivated and my body changing. I have several chronic injuries that Shari understands, and is able to work around while still pushing me to get the utmost out my training. As someone that has worked with trainers most of my adult life, one of the things that I really like about Shari’s style is that almost all of the exercises she does incorporates core strengthening along with other body part workouts. We are almost always using balance techniques while working other body parts. This is the first time I have found a trainer that does this type of full body/core focus. As a result, I have that strong lean look I was looking for. At 40+ years old I am in the best shape of my life, thanks to Shari. Recently, I moved out of state. Losing Shari as a trainer has been a huge loss in my workout and my personal life.

Shari Lesser has been instrumental in my success at weight loss and personal fitness. Her combined approach of strength training and core development, through the use of balance apparatus, has supported my diet and fitness resulting in my current weight loss of 58lbs. Shari provides a positive energy and motivation along with a knowledge base in exercise and nutrition. The variety of exercises she has worked on with me, has provided toning beyond what my weight loss would indicate. I have successfully reduced clothing sizes that i had previously only achieved at a weight of 20lbs less than my current weight. I attribute this to the muscle tone and lean mass that I have achieved through my workouts. I would highly recommend Shari as a resource for anyone looking to achieve success in weight loss and fitness.
MARTINA September 2011
My name is Martina Juarez. I first started going to the gym in December of 2010. I have to admit, at first I was a little skeptical about working out since I had never been to a gym before in my life. I worked out on my own for four months, with no results at all! Then in April of 2011 I met Shari Lesser, my Personal Trainer. I told her about my battle with diabetes as a result of a high risk pregnancy. Her knowledge of fitness and nutrition helped me tremendously. With Shari’s help, I began to regain my self-confidence. After four months of training with her I lost a total of 40 pounds and still going!! She is a compassionate trainer who cares about her clients. Her personality and encouragement keep me a loyal customer. I could never thank her enough.
DENNIS COMBS 2010
When I was young I used to take my health for granted, now I realize just what a gift from God it truly is. I never dreamed (20 years ago) that I could ever do the things that I am able to do at age 55. To be able to swim 6-8 miles in the open ocean, or ride 120 miles over 3 mountain passes is just the most spiritually uplifting feeling in the world. I wish everyone could understand the link to fitness and health is to your overall well being. I am truly thankful for all that I have in my life. I wanted you to know I learned a lot today! I am excited to work on the exercises that you showed me today. I am a very coach-able client (if I have a good teacher and you definitely are a good teacher).
I just wanted to thank you for teaching me how to improve my core balance strength. It really made a big difference on my 14,000 yard birthday swim. I am stronger and more swim fit then I have ever been in my entire life. I was totally amazed at just how easy it was to swim 8 miles on my 56th birthday. My overall functional athletic strength is stronger than it has ever been. I wish I knew what I know now about eating well, training well, and living well, 30 years ago. Thanks again for teaching me the importance of core balance training for improving functional strength. You are an amazing personal trainer and a very nice lady.
