Midori is a wonderful personal trainer. Because of her knowledge and experience, I feel very confident following her program. Her positive energy keeps me inspired and I look forward to working with her every week!


Midori’s metabolic program helped me get a jump start in redirecting my eating habits and exercise regimen which need some attention. Her method of delivery, even over Zoom is both personal and engaging. I highly recommend giving it a try.


I highly recommend Midori's Metabolic ignition -smart training program. I suffer from a chronic blood disorder and often deal with bad bouts of anemia often.  With her program, I was able to adjust my nutrients and now I have been finally sleeping through the night for many days in a row and that itself is an accomplishment. Today I had my lab work and the doctor said that my blood work looks good! It has not happened for a long time! Thank you so much, Midori!
