"Working with Catherine twice a week for the last 7 months has completely changed my life. She has not only helped me lose almost 30 pounds, but she has taught me to use gym equipment properly and has been extremely motivational throughout the process. When we train, I feel like the conversations about my week with food and exercise, nutritional information she provides and fitness guidelines are all just as important and the physical work we do. I'm truly shocked that I've come as far as I have, but once you start feeling as good as I do, you won't want to stop! I owe my dedication to this process to Catherine and I can't thank her enough for truly changing my life."
"I am a very "young" 76 year-old guy with a fairly active lifestyle. I swim for about 30 minutes every day and try to go for a 2 or 3 mile interval walk/run each day as well. Knowing how the inevitability of time wears at the body, I decided I would experiment with the idea of hiring a personal trainer to help me stay in as healthy a shape as possible-- for as long as possible. I wanted a professional trainer who could also give me the latest information on nutrition and who would administer cardio exercises well beyond my usual swimming and walking routine. Catherine Maurice came highly-recommended and immediately began working with me towards those goals. She helped me ease my way into a wonderful regimen designed to develop my body muscle and improve my flexibility to reach its maximum potential. Her experience, knowledge of nutrition and awareness of the intricacies of the human body as it pertains to proper exercise postures, response and procedures is awesome. I highly recommend Catherine Maurice and I feel very fortunate that she was recommended to me!
One warning to new clients: Cover your eyes as she demonstrates how you should be doing the exercise -- her form is Olympian perfect and may be discouraging to watch-- until she smiles and promises that if you "stay the course," you will also be able to do this in a relatively short time!"

"In 2007 while staying at the Four Seasons on Maui. I booked a trainer for ten days- any old trainer. I got Catherine, and every year since, I have booked Catherine for ten days, 90 minutes a day. By my simple math that is 8 years times 10 days times 90 minutes a day, or about 120 hours. . I would not use anyone else, because, quite simply, Catherine is AMAZING - as a trainer and as a person. As a trainer, she quickly defines your needs and goals, and sets out to make you meet the goals and match your needs. She pushes you the right amount, all the while being sensitive to your limitations. While, at the same time, encouraging you to go beyond them. She seems to have just the right attitude for a trainer - tough, but understanding.
As a person, I can't say enough about Catherine. She is smart, fun, and nice. I am fortunate to have gotten to know her a little bit over the last 8 years, and she genuinely cares about the well- being of her clients. She has encouraged me to email her with questions or concerns, I have about training when I am away, and I have consistently done so. Her responses are thorough and thoughtful. She has taken an interest in my diet, and recommends nutritional regimens. She takes an interest in my family. She takes an interest in my over all well being. She is, as I said above, amazing, SIMPLY AMAZING."
