TERI, LATIN TEACHER
Back in December 2012, when I was at my heaviest and possibly my unhappiest at 232 lbs., I decided to turn things around. I had always known that mindset was the key weight loss success, but I had never understood the importance of strong support group. With Angela as a co-worker, friend, and fitness motivator, I was able to reach my weight loss goals (over 50 pounds!). She gave me the proper combination of tough love and praise to keep my eating in check and to push me physically. I would have NEVER chosen to run 5-minute warm-ups before a workout before Angela. But now I'm saying, "Bring it! I can do this! I even finished my first 5K in May 2014!
HAYLEY, ARABIC TEACHER
I love being trained by Angela for so many reasons. First of all, she's a fellow teacher, so she knows what it's like to deal with a ridiculous amount of stress. Another reason is that she doesn't just show me what to do; rather, she teaches me in detail how to do each exercise and why it's beneficial for stress reduction and self-improvement. And best of all, Angela is patient, kind, and positive. Don't get me wrong, the workouts are challenging and really work me hard, but all without body-shaming or focusing on getting that perfect bikini body. I feel so inspired, self-loving, educated, and grateful for my wonderful body after working out with Angela.
NALAH, HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT
Working with Ms. Gentile has been quite beneficial to my health in many ways...As a basketball coach, she made my body so sore, I would hold up traffic walking up the stairs! Conditioning was far from painless, but it was quick and fun. Doing wall sits with the team while screaming the lyrics to a Ke$ha song are part of the moments I will never forget. As a mentor, she taught me the importance of healthy eating. When I first wanted to start eating better, she was the first person I turned to. She explained the significance of a balanced diet and recovering properly so that I wouldn’t be as sore. She helped me design a meal plan that could be easily applicable to a busy teen as myself. Essentially, Angela Gentile has set my foundation for what it is to live a physical fit and health conscious lifestyle. As a role model, she will continue to be an inspiration to me and I know she will always have my back.
REAL PEOPLE, REAL STORIES
KATHERINE, CHEMISTRY TEACHER
I enjoyed working with Angela because she understood that not everyone’s goal is to run a marathon. Some of us just want to be a little more fit and active. Angela is great at helping you meet personal goals and working with you to find beneficial exercises that help you get stronger even if you have some physical limitations. Angela is able to adapt workouts for all levels of fitness and ability while encouraging you to do your best.
KATINA, SPANISH AND DANCE TEACHER
I loved working out at work after school with Angela! She is great for providing fitness for educators and teachers because she brings the gym to us. She tailors the workout to everyone's fitness needs and goals. She is a great balance of the coach who pushes you, while offering support and comfort. She's the BEST!!!
VIRGINIA, COLLEGE STUDENT
I started working with Angela when I was 14. She was my basketball coach at the time, but has since then grown to be my mentor and close friend. She singlehandedly taught me everything I know about working out and leading a healthy lifestyle. Her contagious passion and dedication for health and wellness are what separates her from everyone else. To this day, during tough workouts or when I’m looking for the inspiration and motivation to lace up my running shoes, I always think about what Angela would do, and then I find myself on a run, at yoga, or at the gym. My favorite thing about Angela's approach to working out is her creativity - she knows how to think beyond what the textbooks say in order make something that will work for YOU, which is a really special quality to find in a professional. I feel so blessed to have had so many opportunities to work with Angela since 2009 and look forward to many more.
JENNA, STYLIST AND PERSONAL SHOPPER
Angela's workouts are so fun and different that it makes the time go by quickly!! She is super supportive and not intimidating at all...not to mention the RESULTS! I'm a wardrobe stylist so I deal with clients who want to look their best. I always send them to her and they've had positive feedback as well!
INDIRA, REAL ESTATE MANAGER
I love working out with Angela. She really puts together different workouts. Plus, she actually teaches me how to do things, the right way with correct form. They are hard, but she isn't intimidating or discouraging, only positive. And, I am seeing results!
Angela single handedly changed my life. At the start of 2013, I was 50 pounds heavier and got winded walking up a flight of stairs. I called Angela sobbing and explained that I wanted to change my life, but didn't know where to begin. Angela introduced me to the world of eating healthy and moving my body regularly. She transformed me from someone who could barely walk a quarter of a mile to someone who regularly runs races. I would not be where I am today if it wasn't for Angela - I consider myself supremely lucky to have trained with her, and cannot recommend her highly enough.
