I began working with Jess and Mike in January 2011 at a time in my life when I was extremely out of shape and feeling somewhat discouraged about my ability to alter my sedentary lifestyle. Seven months later, I can honestly say that I have not felt this strong and healthy since I was in my early 20s. The incredible results I have achieved to date are due largely to Jess and Mike’s diverse training methods, individualized exercise programs, and emphasis on teaching their client…Dee C.
Although I make it a point to run and workout almost everyday, I certainly lacked the discipline and knowledge I needed to increase my core strength, balance, and running stride. Jessica has done a great job encouraging and pushing me to do all of the workouts that I would try to avoid when I was on my own schedule. She certainly is disciplined in her approach, as well as thorough in her evaluation before we started this program. I have much better balance, core strength, flexibil…Ted
I am happy to be a client of Valeo Training and to work with Mike. His sense of humor and genuine interest in my progress keep the sessions enjoyable. I appreciate his professional knowledge and ability to motivate and push just enough to get me to achieve results I didn’t know I could! Also, his flexibility in scheduling really helps in that sometimes I have a crazy life that gets in the way. I truly feel my whole life has become better since working with Mike.Carla B.
I really enjoyed working with Jessica. It was especially important to work with someone knowledgeable while I was rehabilitating my knee after arthroscopic surgery. Jessica helped me build up strength and flexibility with workouts that were interesting and varied. She knew it is important to me to get the most out of my exercise time, so I loved that we worked multiple parts of my body with every exercise. I feel like I am back where I was before my knee surgery.Kathie
A scary call from my doctor’s office brought me to Valeo – words like “high blood pressure” and “high cholesterol levels” got my attention and set me into motion. Mike evaluated my fitness level and body composition and set reasonable yet challenging goals to accomplish over the first eight weeks. Never in a million years did I think after just a few months that I would look forward to hitting the gym early in the morning, but Mike makes working out fun while coaching me through demanding cir…Andrea
I first started working with Jessica nearly 3 years ago in a circuit class offered through my employer. Today I’m still hooked! Mike now teaches the class I’m in and I also worked with him along with another co-worker for personal training sessions early last summer. I appreciate the approach both Mike and Jess have to fitness and they certainly push me harder than I would ever push myself on my own and I’ve definitely seen results. I told someone recently that I think I’m stronge…Stephanie H.
I’m not an athlete. I never lifted weights at a gym. I am a 43 year old recently divorced, stressed-out, accountant. I was fatigued; my doctor kept prescribing different medications that didn’t seem to help. I was depressed over my unexpected divorce. I lost the strength to play with my kids. I’m too cheap to pay for a personal trainer, but I struggled to make changes needed in my life. So, I hired Mike to be my personal trainer. The initial biggest change wasn’t even physical, it was m…Chuck
BeckyI really really like my trainer (Mike Luepke) and here’s why….- he doesn’t put up with my BS excuses (one day I told him I had an aneurysm, the other day I told him my prostate hurt)- he constantly expects me to push myself- he’s encouraging, without being condescending- he listens to me & my goals- he gives praise when it’s earned — not just all the time- he’s punctual, prepared, professional- he has a good sense of humor- he’s very fit and strong and energetic- he’s very kn…
I have been working with Mike and Jessica for about a year in the Muscle Movement class offered at Hope College. It has been a wonderful experience and has helped me tremendously in my overall fitness. I have more strength in my core and upper body than any other time in my life and I can feel the difference every day; whether it’s toting my children around, maintaining good posture at my desk, or training for half marathons. The community and fun atmosphere of the group of women who work ou…Mary
As a former professional athlete, I always had exposure to the latest and greatest fitness techniques and programs, but the many years of competitive sports have taken its toll on me. Lower back pain, hip joint pain, and knee problems have been the result. I have always been and still am an avid weightlifter, thinking more muscle would ail my aches and pains. Through word of mouth, I contacted Jessica for a consultation. She took the time to really listen to my concerns and answer all…Dan
