Customers Say...

Flo is an amazingly strong dedicated woman. She will push you with her workouts but she will be right next to you the entire time. I do the online training, for a few months now, and she helped me rebuild y lower back strength after my injury. I have been getting back into my workout routine and getting even stronger than before! I highly recommend Flo as a coach especially for endurnce training...she loves to run and is getting me into it! - Richard Cruz-Novoa
Flo has been training me 5x a week since January. During the past 3 months I have noticed an incredible difference in my body and mind. I am so much more confident in myself and am no longer afraid to push myself past my limits. I have her to thank for that! 
Flo creates each workout customized to her clients' needs and goals based on their daily progress, which is something that really shows her focus and dedication to her clients. She answers any questions, ensures proper form and makes sure to push you harder than you'd think you can go. She is always coaching you on building a strong and positive mindset, as well as giving nutritional advice. This is the first time that I have been able to successfully commit to working out consistently. The progress I have seen is amazing!
One of the biggest struggles for me is that I have a shoulder joint tear that has made it very difficult to progress in workouts the past couple years even going to physical therapy. Throughout this training with Flo, my shoulder has gotten stronger and I have slowly been able to lift more with NO pain. She really listens and focuses on what you need and her plan to start strengthening these muscles has worked perfectly.
The only reason I would give this a 4-star review is because I am training virtually. I wish that I didn't live out of state so that I can train with her in person! 
The thing that motivates me the most is that she lives and breathes what she speaks. She trains herself harder than anyone I know without fail, which makes it really difficult to give her any type of excuse! I would definitely recommend Rising Phoenix Fitness to anyone searching to make a lasting change in themselves and reach their fitness goals. Flo is really dedicated to her clients and is truly passionate about helping people better themselves. - Vanessa Cruz - 

I have been working out with Flo for about two months now. She is an incredibly inspiring trainer whose love for what she does comes through in her work. 
Flo is really flexible with workout times. She was great with working with me to find a time that worked with my busy schedule. She keeps the workouts varied and tracks progress with every session. She pushes you hard but you see the results. I've always struggled with knowing when to increase weight and reps and she has been a great help with that. She works with clients of all abilities and shows you how to do each move with proper form. In addition, she also offers great nutritional help and guidance. 
Flo is a wonderful trainer who believes in what she does, but more importantly, she believes in the ability of all her clients. She's very encouraging and she's all about empowerment. I highly recommend her as a trainer! - Stephanie Gawlas Wash -

The mix of nutiriton guidance and physical traiing made it easy to change my lifestyle and become healthy and happy. - Maria Vastola -
