“I really enjoyed working with Claire. I had been wanting to cut down on drinking for literally decades. Nothing I did stuck. I'm happy to say that I'm now drinking so much less than I used to and I feel a lot better about myself mentally and physically.
I appreciated Claire's coaching style because she met me where I was. There was no judging or a scripted plan that I had to follow—two things I don't do well with! She helped me decide how much change I wanted to make and I progressed at my own pace. Her approach helped me learn to watch my thinking about drinking and to see it for what it was.
I really had no idea how much the thoughts I had about drinking (e.g., "I need to drink more to have more fun" or "I need to drink a lot to feel more relaxed") were contributing to my behavior. I didn't even know about some of the things I was saying to myself until I paid more attention to them.
Change isn't easy and it wasn't a linear process, but over time, it did happen! I am very grateful to have been able to work with Claire. I highly recommend her if you are ready to even consider making a change in your drinking.”

"Claire is amazing at what she does! After 6 years of being a stay-at-home mom, I hired Claire to help me return to the workforce. When we started, I was filled with anxiety and uncertainty.
Over the last few months, she has taught me how to define my goals, determine and focus on what I need to do to reach them, and actually succeed.
And in the process, I gained a better understanding of myself that I never would have achieved without her help. She is the perfect mix of patience, clarity, and assertiveness."

"Working with Claire was an incredibly valuable experience. I had tried so many times over the years to reduce my drinking. I would do well for a while, but then quickly fall back into old habits. Claire made me realize that my many attempts in the past to quit/reduce drinking relied on willpower alone. And she pointed out that willpower is not a sustainable solution. Instead, Claire taught me to question my wants and habits and work toward changing my thoughts about alcohol and drinking situations.
I'm very pleased with where I am now and have never been so hopeful about being able to permanently stick with my reduced drinking goals."

"I was dealing with lingering emotional issues, trying to better my own emotional connection with family members. I had tried things on my own, but really needed her professional expertise and coaching skills to help me understand where I could do more, and how I could change my own thoughts and feelings. I was stuck in a rut. Claire helped me to break my negative patterns of thought. Claire was patient, forthright and understanding. The coaching was full of examples I could relate to—I found this very important when trying to grasp a new concept. I recommend Claire and her work to anyone."

Claire has worked with me in regard to a new way of thinking about my work, this has helped shift my focus.

“What I find so gratifying about working with Claire is how we maximize our time together. I have a very busy schedule between work and family and I want to know that the short amount of time I do have to work out is well spent. Claire has consistently arranged our workouts in this regard, so that I always leave feeling great and that I’ve gotten the most out of them. There are those who think that working with a trainer is just too expensive, but when you factor in all the intangibles as well as the overriding desire to stay fit, I truly feel that it is money well spent!”
- Mike T.
“I’ve been working out on my own for years and eventually let my busy schedule sometimes give me the excuse not to work out. I finally decided to get fit with a personal trainer. At my gym the turnover among personal trainers was high and I was slightly intimated about how to go about the process of finding a trainer best-suited for me. After doing research, I found that there is little accreditation within the fitness industry – basically, anyone can call themselves a personal trainer if they choose. I was fortunate to eventually find Claire Cleary who customized a workout built for me around the goals I sought. I have been working out with Claire for nearly two years now and she is the only trainer I’ve seen who tracks and records my progress. She also always suggests healthy eating options for me as well. Working with Claire is not just a smart use of my time, but it is an investment in myself as well.”

“Working out with Claire has helped me transform my body. She is so great at motivating me and providing me the information and encouragement to help me change my life.

- Alyssa G.
“I just celebrated my 1 yr anniversary with Claire. I’m 20 lbs lighter and 3 sizes smaller. Claire’s constant commitment to health and fitness has showed me what eating good food and exercise can do for me. I have energy, my mind is clear, and I feel strong. I feel like I can take on the world, or my two kids, lol! You’ve changed my life. Thank you Claire!”

"Claire goes above and beyond to help her clients achieve results. With her support, I trimmed my body fat from 22.5% to 18.8% in just a few months – simply by increasing my strength training and cutting down on my cardio. She introduced me to a variety of exercise techniques including TRX, new ways of clean eating including her fun Shakeology challenge and overall ways to improve my form for optimal results. I always look forward to my training sessions with Claire and was amazed at how far I could push myself with her encouragement and guidance.”
