Occupation: Financial Analyst at IBM
I started training with Solana in March 2019. It was my first experience with a personal trainer, so I did not know what to expect. Solana has developed a personalized program for me, considering my fitness level at the time and taking into account the areas I wanted to focus on. I started seeing the improvement in my strength level, endurance, physical appearance and emotional health just two months into it. I never liked exercising at a gym in the past, but with Solana I started looking forward to each training session. Solana is very professional, encouraging, flexible and just a pleasure to work with.

Solana Lewis is a fantastic trainer. Her experience as an elite powerlifting competitor informs her style of utilizing weights in her cross-training routines. Since I began working with her a year and a half ago, I have gained strength and muscle tone, and that strength has helped me to resume light running once again despite arthritis in one knee. Despite her low key demeanor, she is an interesting and energetic person, and I always look forward to our conversations as well as the workout itself.
