“We found out that Cheryl was doing a boot-camp style workout so we decided to drop in for a work-out. On the drive to the class I commented to my wife and daughter that I thought the class would probably pale in comparison to the workouts we are accustomed too. WRONG! The class turned out to be spot-on and was physically challenging. The varied stations were great and the fact that the class was being conducted on the beach made for a beautiful backdrop and increased the level of difficulty by 20% or more. It is obvious that Cheryl knows her stuff and the $10 was well spent. I would highly recommend working out with Cheryl you will not be disappointed.”
I just wanted to say Hello, as well as tell you how much of a inspiration you have been to me!!! Having you as a Personal trainer is by far one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life!
Not only did you teach me how to push myself beyond what I ever thought was possible, you taught me the importance of fueling your body and the importance of healthy eating. It is because of you, that I now eat “Greek yogurt”:-).
You have made a huge impact in my life and I will never forget you!!! I Lost a total of 30lbs and still going strong. Doing classes like TRX training, Body Boot Camp, Cardio Kick and Body Combat!!! There is nothing I won’t try, I ran the Philly Half-Marathon and attached is a picture:-). I Miss You Tons!!! and this Summer I look forward to doing Boot Camp/Kettle bells on the beach with you in Sea-Isle:-)
I have known Cheryl, as a fitness trainer for both individuals and sports teams, for the past ten years. In March, 2009 I asked Cheryl to help the La Salle College High School Football Team with their strength, conditioning and flexibility workouts. Cheryl took our team through workouts, specifically strength and flexibility, and our team improved immensely using her workouts. She demonstrated a take charge attitude and immediately gained the players respect and controlled the group from the very start. Her motivation, knowledge and command of the sessions were very evident and most importantly the workouts proved very productive.
We adopted many of the exercises she demonstrated to our full time workouts and continued using them throughout the pre-season and season.
Thank you for training me for the past four years. I have learned so much. I realized that my body can do much more than my mind thinks it can. Whenever I am either exhausted in a game or about to give up, I think to myself, “If you can survive Cheryl, you can do this;” as odd as that little saying might seem, it really does help and I owe it all to you. I truly appreciate all the time and effort you put into making these workouts challenging, relatable to our sports, and in a weird work out way, fun. Thank you for teaching me to always try harder and never give up, I will need it next year. Thank you!!
I don’t know if it’s appropriate or not – and don’t really care – but I want to give you a big hug!!! I feel so much better, especially with the new program, which by the way, is exhausting. In a good way. And I really do feel much better! Thank you!
I have struggled with my weight for my entire life. I have been on every diet known to man and spend thousands and thousands of dollars in my attempt to lose weight. I tried numerous personal trainers and ended up being frustrated with the lack of their personal investment in me, and my goals. On a last ditch effort, I thought I would give personal training one more try when I saw Cheryl’s ad at the Abington Club. She was personable and understanding and made me feel comfortable confiding in her about my hang- ups and my goals. The results: I lost 30 lbs in 6 weeks!! But more importantly I felt strong and confident for the first time in my life. I felt like I could do this and win the war against the weight! I’d recommend Cheryl without hesitation to anyone and especially to that person who has given up on diets, on trainers and given up on yourself. There is hope and I am proof. Cheryl changed my life, let her change yours!
I have had the opportunity to know and workout with Cheryl for the past 15 years. She has coached my three daughters in various athletic summer sport leagues. She has instilled in them to be their best but more importantly to enjoy what they are doing.
Her energetic personality and enthusiasm will make any challenging workout fun and have you looking forward to the next workout session.
I have known Cheryl Herzog for close to 5 years. All you have to do is mention the name “Cheryl” in the hallways of Upper Dublin and the girls who have attended her preseason workout sessions either smile or cringe because they know she can really “kick their butt” so to speak.
While working and training high school athletes, a person needs a certain personality to reach all levels of ability. Cheryl can reach every single athlete right where they are and challenge and work them to become better. She has that quality, work ethic and passion that inspires the girls to do their best and is evident in her own fitness level.
The girls’ lacrosse team has won three straight league championships. We came into the season and were able to outrun our opponents because of our fitness level. It all starts with the preseason workouts that Cheryl Herzog offers to anyone that wants to take her on!
I really wanted to thank you for the work you did with me both as part of the Golf fitness program and our individual sessions. As you know, I have a history of heart problems and so was very reluctant to work with a personal trainer or to participate in a group with others who did not have pre-existing health issues. My concerns were unfounded because you were able to individualize the pace and workload within the group program and, of course, in my individual sessions. As a result I came much further than ever before and further than I would ever have believed possible and the quality of my life increased dramatically!
Cheryl, I have participated in various post-heart attack training and recovery programs over the last 13 years, and exercised on my own as well. My experience with you far exceeds any previous effort. You are an excellent motivator with insight into each of your clients that allows you to bring the most out of them to the greatest effect almost without them realizing it.
I met Cheryl Herzog while taking a Bosu Class she was teaching the summer of 2001, I was immediately hooked on her motivation and how she made me feel after each workout. I began training with her on a one-on-one, and I was never in better shape in my life (I was 45). I hired Cheryl to train my husband – this was work for her; he met her 3 times a week and we were all impressed -he lost 25 pounds! … In 2005 my daughter gave birth to her first child, again I called on Cheryl – after 6 weeks of working out with proper nutrition, my daughter looked amazing. To sum it up in a nutshell, Cheryl Herzog was my very best find at the Jersey Shore…She’s the Best!!!
Cheryl has been working with the members of my field hockey and softball teams for the past 4 years. As a varsity coach of two programs at Upper Dublin High School, it is very important that I provide the best opportunities for my student-athletes to excel in their sport and maintain a high level of fitness. Cheryl Herzog helps my student-athletes achieve both of these goals.
She demonstrates the epitome of creativity and intensity within her workouts. From session to session, her workouts are original and challenging, yet they always target the major goals that my high school athletes need.
Cheryl also does a terrific job of explaining to the players why certain exercises are important, and how it is directly related to their sport(s) of interest. It is clearly evident that she maintains a high level of training herself and consistently stays up to date with the most research studies in exercise physiology and fitness.
Cheryl’s workouts are very intense (as I have also participated in many of them along with my student-athletes), but she has an innate ability to motivate her participants and challenge every one of them to reach above and beyond their potential.
I would give her my highest, most enthusiastic recommendation.
Cheryl Herzog has been my personal trainer for 9 years and I can’t say enough wonderful things about her. I am 50 years old and am in the best shape of my life. Her knowledge of the body and how it works is incredible, which made me feel very confident with her since I have had 2 back surgeries. I recovered quickly because I was in such good shape.
Cheryl’s bubbly personality is very motivating, making sure her clients get through some challenging exercises with the correct form. I also enjoy our sessions because Cheryl has a list of exercises in her head for every body part so I am never bored! She truly cares about her clients’ health. I love our workouts!
I have had the good fortune of working out with Cheryl for several years. Individually, when I have the opportunity to meet with Cheryl for a workout, I always feel as if it matters – not just to me, but to her as well. In a group setting, I always feel as if Cheryl is talking to me directly and personally. I find that in a group environment, that kind of inspiration is extremely motivating.
ANY DAY THAT I TRAIN WITH CHERYL IS A GREAT DAY FOR ME!!!
It is with confidence and great pleasure that I enthusiastically write this letter of recommendation for Cheryl. I have been working out at the gym for over fifteen years. I have had many experiences with personal trainers and I can say that without a doubt there are none that compare to Cheryl. She has a vast knowledge of the body and of the latest techniques. Cheryl is able to appropriately apply and work with all individuals, ranging from professional athletes to the elderly. Cheryl gives all the attention and planning to each and every client as though they were her only client. Her enthusiasm for what she does is contagious and she is able to encourage you to be the best you can be. Every Cheryl workout you leave with a sense of huge accomplishment.
I have recommended her to numerous friends and all have become Cheryl devotees.
I am a hard case that resists direction and fitness even when I know that it is in my best interest. I met Cheryl when I was in desperate need of motivation and direction. Cheryl’s no-nonsense approach combined with her knowledge of body dynamics was just what I needed to get started. She is small but she is powerful. She is the ultimate athlete and is capable of huge feats of strength despite her size. She has tons of energy and a positive can-do attitude. Her motto is “If it’s meant to be, it’s up to me” and I began to truly understand that while on her program. Best of all, Cheryl is fun and funny with a great spirit and a wonderful sense of humor. When I found Cheryl, I found a personal fitness trainer for life. I would highly recommend Cheryl to anyone, any age, any size to help them and motivate them to reach and maintain their fitness goals.
