Personal Training for Every Level

Listen to what my clients have to say...

The power to motivate is a true gift – and Tess Burns has that talent.
I no longer fixate on how much I weigh, but how fit I feel. I’ve dropped 3 pant sizes and my BMI has dropped about 6 points. I still have a ways to go, but know I will get there because Tess has taught me how to make fitness a part of my life – something I’ve never been able to figure out.

– Rebecca Bull Reed, Associate Gardens Editor, Southern Living Magazine

“Tess is the BEST instructor ever! She works you HARD but yet we have FUN! She is always checking our position – shoulders down, elbows bent, etc. – for the best workout!

– Judy Davidson, Television Production Manager

Tess is a great trainer! I got engaged and wanted to lose weight. I was worried that I would want to quit and/or run out of money before seeing any results. Sometimes it was hard during the sessions but I was always glad I did it afterwards. I’ve definitely toned up a bunch! I’ve lost 11 inches and started running and being more conscious of what I eat. She is very encouraging and positive, and keeps you laughing. She definitely knows her stuff and I’ve already seen great results. I would definitely recommend Tess!

– Meagan Weiss, Assistant Property Manager

Tess – you are wonderful. You explained things very well, are so upbeat and optimistic, and a real cheerleader. I am more fit, in much better shape, have more stamina, and feel younger than my years. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

– Denna Yockey, Line Dance Instructor

Tess has helped me step up my fitness level to achieve a healthier me while working around my schedule. She has worked to tailor a plan specifically for me and encourages me the entire way! Thanks Tess!

– Mendy Burns

Tess brings a certain spunk and fire to each of her classes. You can tell her heart is in it and that she genuinely has a good time setting the pace and keeping everyone in high spirits while pushing them to their max. I for one, need to be pushed by a teacher to run faster push harder and burn more calories. And it has to come from someone like Tess, who is a natural leader and understands how to push while making you laugh at the same time. That’s the kind of workout I want.

– Tiffany Narron, Social Media Manager

I am SO grateful for my over abundance of self confidence and improved posture!
