Silke S.Verified 4 Reviews
I'm Silke and I'm a NESTA certified personal trainer. A bit about my backgrond: I've been into sports since I was a teen. At age 15, I joined a gym, started with weight exercises and cardio. Later on, I got into Yoga, martial arts (Wushu) and Pilates. I also do spinning and hiking and I used to play a little basketball. To me, exercising is so much more than just being fit or looking good in a bathing suit. I just love the way I feel when I work out, physically and mentally. Martial arts taught me a lot about the mental aspect of training. I'm also passionate about nutrition, and while I don't have a degree in that (yet) I do have a lot of nutritional knowledge.
I initially helped friends with workouts privately and that motivated me to get a licence as a trainer. When I work with others, nothing gives me greater joy than seeing their transformation on every level. I love the fact that I can help people to get healthier [or overcome or improve specific health issues] and feel better or become a master in skill related training. It's just amazing to see people reach their goals and to be part of that journey.
In the first session I'll do some evaluations and we discuss your goals. After that, I will start you on some customized exercises, specifically tailored to your goals, needs and abilities. Furthermore, I will create a plan for future workouts. Last, not least, I will make sure that you'll have fun! Workouts should always be fun, never feel like a chore.
Since I had a couple of sports injuries, I also learned a lot about recovery and what one can do to speed up the healing process. So if you have any health issues or you're dealing with a sports injury, I will come up with a plan that will help you heal faster.
I also discovered [almost by accident] how to get rid of cellulite. I'm using a unique combination of exercises to melt away the dimpled skin. I've done that with several clients and the results were amazing!

Silke has helped me tremendously in transforming my body. She’s made our sessions fun and enjoyable and they are completely tailored to my needs, helping me improve my problem areas. She’s extremely knowledgeable and always comes up with new exercises that keep me engaged while being highly effective. I can’t recommed her enough!!
Silke Sorenson is a truly excellent trainer. She is the perfect combination of toughness and sensibility. She works with the whole person mentally, emotionally and physically and because of her efforts to go the extra mile I am much stronger and flexible, and have better balance. I was able to lose the weight without gaining it again and most importantly working out has become fun and something that I look for.
Working out with Silke has been bitter sweet, she completely kicks your butt, but the results are truly amazing. :) Great payoff. I also came with sports related knee injuries from playing soccer and shoulder injuries from lifting with bad form. she helped me through the recovery process building the muscles around the areas for better stability. I really appreciate her help in getting in shape and building strength.
I had a goal to meet. I had to get into a dress for my wedding day. I tried dieting and exercising but nothing worked. The task seemed unsurmountable. Silke came to my rescue and created a rigid regimen to lose the inches that I needed to fit into my dream dress. Through a strict diet and exercise and her not letting me give up on my goal, I succeeded. Without her guidance, knowledge, and tenacity I would have never achieved my happy day. Walking down the isle, I have never felt more fit and healthy in my life.
