I went to Linda two months before I had a hip replacement. I had hopes of losing weight and strengthening upper body muscles and leg muscles to make my recovery easier and faster. I lost a few pounds and did so well with my program that the physical therapist was ready to discharge me from their program after my second week. Linda came to my home and met with the therapist so that she could continue my post-rehab training. I returned to Linda's location one month after the surgery and my progress has been incredible.

I lost a few pounds and did so well with my program that the physical therapist was ready to discharge me from their program after my second week.

Linda came to my home and met with the therapist so that she could continue my post-rehab training. I returned to Linda’s location one month after the surgery and my progress has been incredible. I have no pain, can walk on a treadmill, and go up and down steps with no difficulty. I am doing exercises in the gym that I never thought I would be able to do.

My progress is most gratifying. I feel great! I strongly recommend the Proactive Wellness Concepts Personal Training Program!

Before coming to Linda, I had been experiencing lower back pain that appeared to be nerve connected.. My tendency when starting an exericise program on my own has been to overdo things and become so sore that continuing was difficult. It was my hope that working with Linda would motivate me to start exercising again and address my weaknesses in a safe manner. I have been working out with her for three weeks now and already I have seen improvment in my lower back. I am sleeping better at night and moving more freely during the day with noticeably less...

Before coming to Linda, I had been experiencing lower back pain that appeared to be nerve connected.. My tendency when starting an exericise program on my own has been to overdo things and become so sore that continuing was difficult. It was my hope that working with Linda would motivate me to start exercising again and address my weaknesses in a safe manner. I have been working out with her for three weeks now and already I have seen improvment in my lower back. I am sleeping better at night and moving more freely during the day with noticeably less pain and better posture. Linda has been very positive, professional and focused. I have been pleased with the results I have obtained and look forward to more sessions. I would recommend this program to anyone!

I met with Linda last year in order to accomplish a couple of specific goals, become a better softball player, lose a few pounds and become more fit. The first goal I wanted to accomplish was to be a more competitive softball player. I have been a member of my church's softball team for several years and over that time we have moved up the ranks from division 6 to division 4. With the prospect of moving up to division 3 looming of the horizon I knew that I needed to improve my game. Linda has helped me become much... Read More

The first goal I wanted to accomplish was to be a more competitive softball player. I have been a member of my church’s softball team for several years and over that time we have moved up the ranks from division 6 to division 4. With the prospect of moving up to division 3 looming of the horizon I knew that I needed to improve my game. Linda has helped me become much more fit overall and in addition have created softball specific exercises to help me become a better, more competitive softball player. The side benefit is that I now look and feel a whole lot better and have more energy than I have had in years!

Client came to us who was recovering from lung cancer, and has been in remission for a year. She was in the service, and had been given a deadline regarding testing for her bi-annual PT test. She requested that we help her recondition her physically, and help her with her balance, and endurance. After her assessment we designed a plan that would help her get back on track without injuries or pain. After a complete program, she was able to pass her PT test with flying colors, and her results were better than they were before her bought with cancer.... Read More

To Whom it may concern,

I have personally and professionally known Linda Nedilsky since April 2003. She became my personaltrainer for over a year. We have worked together on various projects concerning my health, fitness and wellbeing. I can recall a number of occasions when I had to call upon her expertise in dealing with proper nutrition and training. Her extensive knowledge and experience with the various training techniques and her outgoing personality always was a blessing. With her knowledge and continuous supporting techniques, I am able to say she was advantageous to the success of each pound and muscle strength that we worked on together.

I have never worked with any professional physical trainer who was accessible twenty-four hours a day to discuss or just be there. Linda not only had exceptional work ethics, but truly took a personal interest in the success of each of her clients. She was not only honest with us on each session; she went over board to help in the success of these training sessions.

Linda has the most remarkable talent to help those of us who are over 50 and have orthopedic or other health issues. She has done amazing things to help me with my arthritic spine, high stress and more. Linda has a unique ability to assess and treat with a combination of MFR, personal training, muscle work, nutrition and coaching. She individualizes each person's session based on observation, symptoms reported and/or observed by her. It is not your typical group class where everyone does the same thing regardless of ability or appropriateness; she has stopped my workout in progress to address... Read More

Linda has the most remarkable talent to help those of us who are over 50 and have orthopedic or other health issues. She has done amazing things to help me with my arthritic spine, high stress and more. Linda has a unique ability to assess and treat with a combination of MFR, personal training, muscle work, nutrition and coaching. She individualizes each person’s session based on observation, symptoms reported and/or observed by her. It is not your typical group class where everyone does the same thing regardless of ability or appropriateness; she has stopped my workout in progress to address an observed ‘problem’ and will immediately do MFR to resolve or ‘fix’ the issue, then resume or suspend the activity based on her stellar judgment. I recently had back surgery and Linda has been instrumental in both my immediate recovery program and now in my rehab plan. I can’t say enough positive things about Linda and her exceptional skills. Check it out; it may make a huge difference in your life. It was life-changing for me.

Recently I hired Linda Nedilsky as my post-rehab trainer. I had been experiencing lower back pain that appeared to be nerve connected. My tendency when starting an exercise program on my own has been to overdo things and become so sore that continuing is difficult. It was my hope that working with a professional post-rehab trainer, I would be able to start to exercise again and simultaneously address my weaknesses in a safe manner.

I have been working with Linda for three weeks now and have already seen improvement in my lower back situation. I am sleeping better at night and moving more freely during the day with noticeably less pain and better posture. Linda has been very professional. Since working with Linda, I have not experienced strained muscles or soreness that in the past had kept me from taking care of my daily responsibilities exercising at the gym. I have been very pleased with the way we have been able to work together and the speed of noticeable results. I would recommend her to others who are interested in getting rid of pain, and gaining strength and flexibity.

Linda, Thanks for taking me on - as what I thought to be a lost cause. I remember when I used to go to step class. My knees and ankles would bother me after just a few minutes. It seemed that I had little stability in my hips or knees. I contacted Proactive Wellness Concepts and schedule a consultation. The owner, Linda explained to me muscle and fascial restrictions can cause us to feel off balance. At PAWC, they offer a complete assessment including testing your balance and coordination, range of motion and posture alignment. After completing the assessment, Linda... Read More

Linda,
Thanks for taking me on – as what I thought to be a lost cause. I remember when I used to go to step class. My knees and ankles would bother me after just a few minutes. It seemed that I had little stability in my hips or knees. I contacted Proactive Wellness Concepts and schedule a consultation. The owner, Linda explained to me muscle and fascial restrictions can cause us to feel off balance. At PAWC, they offer a complete assessment including testing your balance and coordination, range of motion and posture alignment. After completing the assessment, Linda designs a program that is specifically geared to your needs. In my case, I wanted to improve my balance, get stronger knees and hips so I could go to my step class and not feel awkward, or feel joint pain.

Thanks to PAWC, I can stand on one leg, lunge with confidence and make it through an hour of my favorite step class. Linda has re-educated me about making the exercises I do really count. She has done way more for me than I could have ever asked for and I can’t thank her enough!

Questions and Answers

Why hire a personal trainer?

A highly trained qualified personal trainer provides many benefits…

Motivation. On those days when you are feeling a bit tired and overwhelmed by life, our trainer will keep you on course and feeling positive about the changes you are making with your own health.

Accountability: Ever have those days when it would be much easier to sit and read a book or watch TV, rather than to exercise? Having a scheduled appointment, with a trainer, helps hold you accountable on those days when you just have trouble “getting going.”

Exercise form: There are plenty of videos and books that show you how to exercise, but none of them offer personal feedback. Having that one-on-one personal attention allows you to ask questions and learn how to execute exercises with proper form to avoid injury and still get the results you need.

No cookie cutter programs: As NASM certified trainers we custom design workouts to fit your fitness levels and goals. No matter what age, fitness level or fitness goals, we can help you by designing programs that are specific to your needs, and adjust your program as you improve.

What is a Nationally Certified Personal Trainer?

Just about any trainer can get a certification on line, so buyer beware.

The Top Five Certifications:

ACSM, ACE, NASM, and NSCA are all accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA). NCCA accreditation is generally held as the standard for the field—certifying bodies must undergo comprehensive evaluation and regular renewals to keep this accreditation.
