If you have never experienced personal training or a workout with Sydney Stiles, you have a very extraordinary surprise coming! ​ I found Sydney on her website about five years ago while searching in Traverse City for a trainer who could teach me and train me using TRX.  Little did I know that she would come with knowledge in many different areas of body work including foam rolling and trigger point release.  She was also able to help me with the exercises my physical therapist sent home with me.  I couldn't have landed on a more versatile person to meet my needs in personal training. ​ Not only is she well learned about the human body, she also has a wonderful personality in dealing with people on all levels of fitness.  She adapts to individual needs that may change for each workout yet comes prepared with her well thought out plan for each session.  I personally enjoy her wonderful sense of humor and positive attitude she brings each time I see her.   ​ Luckily we are able to train outside in good weather as we are only in Michigan during the summer.  We can hook up to a tree with the TRX.  She also brings other equipment for other types of work. ​ My husband observed her expertise and decided also to work with her at our home about three years ago.  He as well has been thoroughly impressed with her knowledge and abilities, including her great personality. ​ If you have the opportunity to work with Sydney, don't hesitate! ​ -Beth and David Howard

Julie English, MI

I really enjoy working with Sydney.  She's aware of my special needs, listens to what my goals are and plans workouts that help me achieve them.  Being a paraplegic, I was unsure if a certified personal trainer would work for me, but she immediately put my mind at ease with her knowledge and creative presentation of each exercise. ​ An important goal for me early on was to have the strength and stability to safely hold my new grandson.  Sydney came up with creative exercises to help me do just that.  There isn't a goal I've brought to her that she hasn't been able to help me achieve. ​ - Julie English

I am 74 years old, and I began training with Sydney about five years ago. I’m moderately fit, but I do have arthritis in my joints, and I was beginning to feel my age with regard to flexibility, balance and strength. Although I tried going to a gym, I found that working out with a bunch of strangers on sometimes complicated equipment was not my thing. I found it boring, uncomfortable and unsatisfying, never knowing if I was doing the exercises right or whether I was making any progress. Then a friend introduced me to Sydney and TRX - what a difference! Not only did she make me feel comfortable and confident through her expertise, patience and highly individualized approach, but the whole experience was (and still is) FUN! Of course we work hard in our sessions - and I say “we” because Sydney puts in as much effort as I do - but the results and my sense of accomplishment are totally worth it. She constantly monitors, encourages and corrects my movements as necessary, ever mindful of my individual limitations and abilities. The name “Energized Fitness” is perfect, because I feel energized after every workout, knowing that my training sessions are productive and looking forward to where Sydney will take me next in my fitness level.
