hi, i'm Denise.

i'm your trainer match!

I love being a trainer. No two clients are the same. Each has their own story, challenges, and solutions. An effective trainer sees each situation with fresh eyes. Attention to individuality is essential to creating change.

my specialties.

Illness Recovery

I have more clinical experience than most personal trainers.  As a certified Medical Assistant and Cardiac Rehabilitation Therapist, I’ve been blessed to help many people in their recovery process.

Looking at the Big Picture

My training as a Health Coach will help us look at all the different aspects of daily life that contribute to your fitness journey.

Working with Seniors

Many of my clients are over the age of 75.  It is a gift to work with this population.  I love helping them increase their activity while they share their stories and wisdom with me.    

General Fitness

I love helping people step up their current fitness level.  No matter where you start, together we can build strength and maybe even have some fun.

I have been working with Denise for almost two months now. I have already seen results in my own personal strength and I recently had to go shopping for some better fitting clothes 🙂 Denise is just the trainer I needed right now. Being in my mid-fifties I needed someone who would push me, but be patient. She has been all that plus much, much more! Thank you, Happy Human and Denise! You have brought a new level of joy to my life. I can’t wait to see how my body changes even more in the months to come!!

the fine print.

We think you are going to love working with Happy Human.  And we know that it can daunting to sign up for a program before you’ve met your trainer in person.  So cancel anytime before your 4th session.  You’ll get a FULL refund of all payments to that point.  No questions asked.  No messing around.  No kidding.

  • Personal training sessions – with one of the finest personal trainers in the area.
  • Support – workout design and general support for days when you don’t meet with your trainer.
  • Lifestyle Coaching – If you’d like, we can help you set up the rest of your life support your new fitness habit.
  • Virtual Classes – All Happy Human clients, on any plan, get free access to our schedule of virtual classes.  This is $75 to $100 per month value!
You are paying for a regular weekly time (or a series of regular times).  Your trainer will get in touch with you to find a day and time that works for you.
Any major credit card. Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express are accepted.

If you can’t meet at your regularly scheduled time, please contact your trainer. We may be able to reschedule. We cannot guarantee that there will be a slot available. But we will do our best!

You can get company credit for any cancelled sessions.

Cancel 24-hrs ahead of your regularly scheduled time.  Then fill out a quick online form to get your credit.   Your credit will automatically be applied to your next payment.

No problem!  Just let us or your trainer know you’d like to pause your plan until you return.

Yes! We love working with 2-person teams. It’s just $10 more per session as it does make for extra planning time for the trainer. Please select training with a partner as an ‘add-on’ when you checkout.

Your card will be charged on the first Monday after you sign up.  Then it will be charged every other Monday.

Not at all. Just let us know if you decide to stop and we’ll cancel your payments.
