"Lorne works hard to modify exercises to make them work for me. I enjoy working with him and have made significant progress"
"Lorne Opler has been my personal trainer for in-pool training for some three months. He has been imaginative and creative in developing a program for me to improve my mobility, with the goal of enabling me to walk again following serious neck surgery. His work has aided my progress in improving my strength, balance, and coordination."

"Lorne is very good about setting fitness goals…Lorne really cares…he appreciates the challenges that come with aging and is supportive and engaging in his approach. My dad does seem in better condition."
Daughter of Lorne's client
"I have been training with Lorne in the pool and on land for a few months. Both the pool and the land exercises are great. I am certainly far more conscious of just how often I try to exercise now and even when walking I keep remembering how to walk more comfortably and safely. I find myself doing more exercise on my own since I started working with Lorne."
