I am so much more aware of everything I eat. I am making so many more healthy choices and now I have more energy and am exercising more. Thank you so much Karen!
I am thrilled with Karen’s program. I am not burned out as I had worried I would be, rather I am enthusiastic and eager to keep improving. I have more energy, confidence and a true sense of control in my life. Add to that weight loss and clothes that fit so much better – I am very happy.
Karen is an extraordinary person, one whom I hold in the highest regard. Yes, she is a great personal trainer and nutrition coach but she goes above and beyond in caring for her clients. My experience having Karen work with my young adult was an enriching one. Karen cares about the whole person: mind, body and soul. Karen listens, assesses and finds ways to get people to open up their mind, heart and soul. She helps them to understand their weakness and their strengths. She assists them in setting goals to improve those areas in need of some work. Of course, she teaches them by explaining the reasons why certain foods and exercises are better than others and how they work to make their body work best for them.
My time with Karen over the past year has been transformative. She is patient, flexible, and real. When I began working with her, I felt as though my constant struggle with my mind/body relationship would see no end. I learned quickly, though, that there is a way in this life to enjoy food, live happily, and love and know your body through balance. The uphill climb is continuous, but with Karen’s help I have been aided in learning how to nurture myself through healthy movement and to be compassionate with myself always.
I came to Karen because I had dug myself a deep hole and I did not know how to get out of it. I did not understand what was good for me and what wasn’t and I did not know that putting the right foods in my body would not only make me look better and feel better, but that overall I would be a thousand times happier with myself and my life.
Looking back on it now, I cannot believe what my lifestyle used to be and I am so grateful I opened up to Karen.
At first I was nervous to meet with Karen because I was embarrassed that I couldn’t change my lifestyle by myself and I was also a little afraid of her judgement. However, after just one session with her I could not wait to start the process and was so motivated to be healthy.
She was completely different than I expected. Her job is to help you care for your body but Karen goes above and beyond and helps take care of your soul. Working with her was life changing and has taught me such amazing lessons about my body and my mind that I will always remember.
Karen never judged me, never made me feel ashamed if I stepped off the path for a little and always celebrated the smallest accomplishments, even if it had nothing to do with weight loss.
She wants to hear about your life and is so excited to accompany you through a process that ultimately was the smartest and healthiest journey of my life. And what Karen has taught me even changed my family’s lifestyle as well.
It is amazing that so many people in this society don’t know what they are putting in their bodies and for a long time I was one of them. Karen has taught me that eating healthy is rewarding, inspiring and surprisingly delicious!
Karen’s happy glow is what motivated me to start the journey and now my own happy glow is what motivates me to continue it!
With Karen’s help, I was able to discipline myself and change my outlook upon my body and who I truly am, which now allows me to say without hesitation that I not only love my body but I also love who I have become!
After suffering a concussion, my daughter had to recoup academically, socially and emotionally. It was a stressful and down time in her already stressful adolescent life. I’ve known Karen a very long time and have always enjoyed her company and very upbeat personality! But, it was when someone describe her as a, “healer,” I knew she was just the person we needed!
What an unbelievable gift our time with Karen was! My daughter learned so much about nutrition, emotional health and most importantly herself! After a very short time with Karen I notice a marked difference in my daughter’s overall happiness, confidence, physical and emotional well being. I am not even so sure if Karen knows what a blessing she was for us at that time! She encouraged, coached and embraced us as if we were one of her own! I can’t say enough, and am forever grateful for the life lessons and love that Karen continues to bestow on our family.
Even though I knew it was good for me, I had never stuck with a weight training program in the past because I really didn’t enjoy it and felt intimidated by it. I was also so sick and tired of counting calories and not getting anywhere. I began working with Karen as a personal trainer and nutritional counselor three years ago. At that time, I felt tired, defeated, and frumpy. Over my time working with Karen, I feel more energized, more confident, more positive, stronger and healthier. She has made working out fun and productive, and has shown me that eating nutritiously can be delicious and life-changing. I feel like a different person now. I am so grateful to Karen for her kindness, enthusiasm, patience and knowledge.
I have known Karen for many years, both as a friend and personal trainer. But it was during my daughter’s recovery process from an eating disorder that I first reached out to her for her nutritional guidance. Karen has provided nutritional counseling, fitness coaching and emotional support for my daughter in the most comprehensive and nurturing environment. Her love and commitment to helping my daughter on her journey has made a significant difference in her recovery and how she lives her life.
Karen Tenenbaum is a phenomenal partner in helping you take the best care of yourself through nutrition and exercise. She lives what she preaches. She has an authenticity about her and she really wants to help you make a difference in your own life. So whether you’re an experienced exerciser or not, I highly recommend her!
