Gail has been in the fitness industry for over ten years. Starting as a group fitness instructor, then moving on to personal training, and finally finding her niche in the mind/body world of fitness. As an advanced yoga practitioner, she has a well-rounded approach to both physical fitness and emotional well-being and applies that knowledge to bring it all together in her training sessions. One of Gail's best attributes as a trainer is her ability to see the whole person and devise a plan based on their needs and strengths.
There is no typical training session. Within each session, every person will recieve guided exercise as well as health/wellness coaching because the body and mind go hand in hand. As the body moves and grows stronger, so does the mind. As the mind becomes happier and the body stronger, life opens up to new possibilities.
Gail learned all this first hand through her own physcial transformation, losing 30 pounds in college and keeping it off into her mid-thirties. As well as letting go of anxiety that plauged her through her 20s, by diving into her own personal daily yoga and meditation practice.
Gail's love of improving lives through fitness and wellness go hand in hand with her passion for learning. This year she will complete her 500 hour Yoga Certification which will keep her current American Council on Exercise personal training certification up to date, as well as ensure her clients are recieving top notch education in form and function.

Bob Weissberg has practiced Reiki, which means "Spiritual Energy", since 1999, and has been a Teaching Master since 2004. Bob has been a physician since 1978, practicing in a variety of convnetional and holistic settings, and currently works part time for a federally qualified health center in an underserved area of Troy, NY. During a transitional time in his career, Bob connected wtih Reiki, which has been an important part of his personal and professional life since. His training has been with Mary Browne of Berne, NY, and Frans Stiene of Australia and Netherlands.
The practice of Reiki promotes and supports deep healing on all levels, wherever it is needed, and complements all other healing methods. Reiki, as first taught by the Buddhist healer Mikao Usui in early 20th Century Japan as "Usui Reiki Ryoho", connects practitioner and recipient to the Great Bright Light, which is shared by and supports all Life. In a real sense, it is pure healing.
Bob is grateful for the opportunity to offer this beautiful practice at The Bodyworks Wellness Center as a practitioner and teacher. Reiki healing session of 30 or 60 minutes and classes are available by appointment at 518-331-8918.
