“Training with SE2 opened new doors and changed my outlook towards physical fitness, health, and exercise in so many ways. I am confident, strong, and most of all - pain-free!”


A practitioner of the Shotokan style of Karate, VJ struggled for years with knee pain and weight loss.  Although she had an existing workout regimen, when she began training with SE2 in 2014, she immediately saw the value of working with a knowledgeable personal trainer. Schmid and the SE2 team started with an assessment, established goals, and used a customized training program to help her gain lean muscle mass, improve strength, and expedite weight loss. More importantly, the program targeted building a strong foundation by using MAT techniques to test and activate the muscles, and weight training to build strength and resilience.

"SE2 understands that personal training is not simply about weight-loss or developing six-pack abs. It is much more. I want to be fit and strong through my entire life which for me means - practicing karate, moving easily, and feeling my personal best - whether I'm at the gym pushing myself or just being active in daily life. Schmid was able to take me from "somewhat fit" to really thinking about how each muscle moves, bringing together the connection between the mind and body, and showing how correct training can transform your life. Training with SE2 was one of the best decisions I've made.” -VJ
