“T​​erril is my weekly motivator in chief. She takes the necessary time to focus on me getting the positions right and giving clear concise directions . It is so nice to have someone encourage me and then celebrate my accomplishment. I feel as though it matters to her if I struggle and then come through that struggle into a place of confidence.”

“Working with Terril is so much fun. All that’s missing is wine! (Unless, you count my silent whining, while working the hip flexers!). Thank you, Terril!!”
