What other fabulous ladies have to say about working with Candace Smith

I know it's been a long time coming but I seriously enjoyed the workouts and coaching guidance that the STRONGER Way Training program gave me! 

Candace set me up with the right tools and motivation I needed to finish the program out. What I loved most about the program was that 

Candace asked me every month what I wanted more of, or if there was something, I wanted to add in. For me that gave me a sense of customizing my routine but learned some new workouts which was fun. 

The one thing I learned was to make sure I was eating enough to match my workout routine. 

Candace was always there when I had questions about nutrition and gave me great tips. I would rank this program a 10/10! 

You really get the full package with having a trainer like Candace. 

At the end of the program I noticed I still went through the same workouts just because of how much I enjoyed them. They are for the most part full body plans and they work really well. I'm impressed with the result and I would recommend The STRONGER Way program to anyone! 💪🏼

I was 51 years old when I began training with Candace. I was actively exercising when we began but was starting to have knee pain. I was also motivated to learn how to do push ups. My goals therefore were for her to check my form and to learn a new skill. I had never had personal training before and, quite honestly, was a little intimidated initially. Candace is affirming and encouraging in her approach. She sets reasonable goals and would never allow me to be unreasonable with myself. She kept our work outs interesting, fun, and challenging...always pushing me to try something new or just have fun with what we were doing. She was skilled at injury recovery and knew when to adapt when I just wasn't feeling it. My biggest surprise in working with Candace is the amount of information I learned about the role of nutrition in strength and overall health. Candace was always responsive between sessions. She stays on top of research and industry trends so her responses are educated and informed. My initial thought was that I would meet with Candace for six sessions...that turned into two years because her role became invaluable to my progress! I am stronger, more confident, and generally more healthy today as a result of Candace's expertise. I would highly recommend her!

I've been following Candace on Facebook for several years, and I've loved her approach to fitness - consistency, gimmick-free, integrity, lifting the heavy things, and eating without demonizing any food groups. 

I feel like fitness programs for women focus on high cardio, dropping a food group like carbs, or starving ourselves. Any weight training is often bodyweight only to avoid getting "bulky". This is not what Candace provides!

I decided to try her free Juicy Booty June program and I fell in love with her coaching! The program allows me to lift with structure and I can hit the weights without guessing. 

There are demo videos for each of the moves, and she was always willing to answer questions or provide feedback from videos of my workout. 

I was gushing over the program to my husband, and mentioned that I wanted to buy the STRONGER Way training membership, and he asked me "why not?" 

With his encouragement, I purchased the program, and I have not regretted it! With the structure and exercises in The STRONGER Way Training, I can easily track my progress over the month, ask any questions that come to mind, and request exercises for the coming month. 

Since starting the program, I've seen better muscle definition, increased the amount of weight I can lift, and many everyday accountable have become easier - like giving my 10-year-old a piggyback ride! 

Candace also provides advice to help with the mental challenges that come with exercise - when progress isn't linear, daily stresses, limited access to weights/gym, etc. Her approach focuses on consistency without gimmicks.

"Candace is an amazing trainer because I feel that she approaches diet and fitness the RIGHT way. She never let me starve myself and encouraged me to enjoy the foods I liked in moderation. With patience and consistant workouts, I started to see results. The results I have received from training with her have been results that lasts! This is coming from a chick that has tried multiple ways to lose weight (Insanity, CrossFit, etc.). She creates workouts for me that are consistent so I don't have to think when I enter the gym. This way I can see myself progress over time. She would incorporate fun short cardio tid bits to ensure that I got my heart racing but not dreading it at the same time. I highly encourage anyone hire her as a fitness coach. Her style of training is a definitely a lifestyle, not a fad."

I had a wonderful, challenging yet enjoyable experience training with Candice and I would and will be hiring her to train me again soon! I love her attitude and how she inspired me to push myself. I gained muscle strength and tone that helped me have less back and body musculoskeletal pain. Candice is one of the best trainers in the region!

Candace is an awesome personal trainer! She really cares about your goals and is hungry to never stop learning and growing in her field. She will make herself available to best suit your needs, whether that means meeting you at a gym, or personally training with her in own facilities one on one.
