Wendy has been a personal trainer for about 16 years now and has worked with older adults and special populations for about 10 years. Her calm yet inspiring nature makes her an ideal trainer to work with people 50+ that are new to exercise or experienced. She is always excited to share her knowledge and enthusiasm with those looking to make a healthy change in their life.
"Little changes made consistently can have a big impact"
In her spare time Wendy likes to travel, learn and spend time with family and friends. Currently she is working on her Spanish.
Every year Wendy looks to enhance her skills as a trainer and this year she is working on "Essentrics" Essentrics is a form of exercise that stretches and strengthens the body.

"My father is very proud of himself and is committed to keeping it up.
This is the best money I have ever spent on a gift for my Dad.
I have no doubt that we'd be dealing with a much different situation if it weren't for Wendy and the relationship she built with him, the confidence she helped build in him, and the awareness of what he is still capable of at nearly 80 years old.
I can't thank both of you enough."
You are a great trainer! You understand how to train someone who is not 22! You are patient, friendly and encouraging. I was more comfortable working with you than I've ever been with another trainer.
Wow! Wendy, you made me feel relaxed. You're completely unintimidating but still helped me to push myself. I truly appreciated how you'd check my form. I never once worried about injury. Your fitness knowledge is impressive.
Thank you for helping me get into a new and healthier lifestyle! I may never love working out, but you make the experience much more enjoyable. Your excitement and positive reinforcement for getting fit has rubbed off.
Training with you, Wendy, is so much fun! You challenge me but always find workarounds when my knees or shoulders are acting up. I'm now off all blood pressure medication. I even lost a few pounds. This is life changing!
My husband and I have been recently working with Wendy Palmieri. She did a fantastic job of setting us up with an individual program which took into account our medical issues and fitness level but also the goals we had in mind. The program was easy to adopt and ramped us into a better level of fitness safely and without pain. Wendy is positive, encouraging and flexible. It’s terrific to be able to work with people who understand the special needs we older people have and can still achieve realistic improvements. We’ll be working with Wendy on an ongoing basis. Thanks, Vintage Fitness!
I was amazed with the response and help I got from Erin in 2013 when I was looking for a PT for my 16 year old son who’s DS. His OT was about to discharge him from her services since she said that there wasn’t much more she could help him with (he’s totally independent and high functioning). However our major concern and a future goal for him was weight loss. His OT suggested a few websites and believe it or not only Erin responded promptly!!
After several discussions with Erin she was able to find – in hindsight I have to say – a perfect fit for him. Erin suggested Wendy Palmieri who’s been working with Reyaz for 19 months now. Wendy is just an amazing trainer who’s a very professional, kind and caring person. Reyaz looks forward to seeing her weekly and they have great sessions together. We’ve learned a lot from Wendy’s suggestions and insight and we’ve been very happy with this relationship so far. At times I think Reyaz and Wendy have too much fun during their sessions, but that’s the way she is – it has to be fun so that you enjoy what you’re doing but always in a professional manner.
I would recommend Wendy not only for what she specializes in – training over 50+, but anyone who’s got a disability and needs a caring trainer. Thank you both for being such wonderful professionals.

"Wendy is amazing. Adjectives that come to mind are: warm, generous, attentive, caring and professional. We know she is personally committed to our doing well. She takes time to listen to us and cheerfully accommodates to our restrictions and concerns.
As sisters (in our sixties), we signed up for the partners package. There hasn't been a session that hasn't been a lot of fun. Truly a customized routine every time.
It is masterful how Wendy can engage and physically challenge two different people at different stages in their life at the same time. We have each seen meaningful and tangible improvements in our strength, flexibility, agility and endurance.
After close to two years, we are as enthusiastic and committed as ever. That is the best testimony of all."
