About this pro

I have been a personal trainer since 2000. I have worked in all aspects of the health industry. From checking guests in at the gym, to 1 to 1 training, custom small group classes to bootcamps. I treat each client as an individual and together we collaborate to make their custom plan. I care about all aspects of their health and wellness which helps so many of my clients, achieve success! 

I can train people in their homes, offices or local parks. I can teach custom group classes for the ladies of the neighborhood or your office co-workers to a group of friends. You pick the time, days, location and the style of class. I come teach all the fun! No excuses! I can teach boot camp classes. So from 1 to 1, small group to boot camps, I can do it all!

All of it! I love helping people dispel myths about health and wellness. I love educating my clients and helping them achieve their goals. I love helping my clients feel better, more energized and live longer healthier, happier lives! It is such a joy seeing people transform their lives.

  • Mary Nash

    When I lived in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, Janalyn was my personal trainer for years. She got me back into shape after back surgery not once but twice. I also have lupus. She was particularly knowledgeable with exercises that would not hurt my body further and also with nutrition and supplements to help me deal with my illness better. Even though I live in a different state, I still consult with her anytime I need nutritional or exercise advice. You will not find a better trainer.

  • Corrin Culhane

    Very professional and gives you a variety of exercises that work for your fitness level. She listens to you and what your needs are and will customize a plan for maximum results! Highly recommend.

Currently, I price based on what is needed. Therefore, I make a custom package based on what you need and not paying for what you do not.

Here is some guidelines to pricing:

$70/hour if I travel to you, $60/hour if you travel to me, 5-20% off if purchase a package. Current special, unlimited training, nutrition, total access for $500/month. You can't get a trainer 1 to 1 for less than $1k/month and that's just for training. My plan is half off for a limited time.
