Kristy TRX
Kristy Cimbing Wall
"I have been working out with Kristy for nearly 2 years now and I have appreciated her support and flexibility throughout.  I have occasional back issues and she has been great at accommodating exercises that will not exacerbate the problems.  She tailors the program to my interests and my needs, while maintaining a good balance of exercises to meet both strength and cardio goals." - Jennifer

"I have known Kristy but a short while but she has already demonstrated a keen interest in my welfare tempered by a cautious approach regarding my safety  which I very much value. I look forward to her sessions every week."  
- John

"I have been working with Kristy on and off for over two years.  She is really encouraging, and challenges you to achieve your goals.  She listens to what you want and creates a program suited for your needs.  She will give a variety programs that will keep your body guessing so you get the best results.    She pushes you to go that extra mile or lift that heavy weight but with a smile." - Susan

"Kristy takes everything into consideration when developing a workout program... strength, cardio, and nutrition... she does it all. She is always checking and adjusting to fit my needs. She has me running (something I thought Id never do.) She knows how far to push you so you improve but are not discouraged. And she smiles the whole time she does it."  - Mike

"I started training with Kristy when I transferred my membership to the Downtown Y.  I had been training with someone else for years, and considered myself to be strong and fit.  Kristy challenged me to think of myself as an athlete who is capable of much more.  I was interested in running, but had never followed a consistent program.  Kristy developed a program with me, and I run regularly and have now competed in several 5K runs.  My family and friends are amazed and impressed with the changes in this 50 something woman!" - Barb

"Kristy's down-to-earth approach to fitness is making it easier for me to stick to my fitness goals."  - Richard

"Kristy provides a positive approach to training. She is very knowledgeable and is constantly improving her knowledge through training and seminars. She ensures that you push yourself to achieve the most you can throughout your training regime. She creates custom programs for you and is very responsive to your personal requirements and will adjust the program to suit your needs as they change during your training session.  Kristy is always "up" and ready to start when you arrive for your session, she is a great motivator and I personally enjoy our time together."  - Karen

"I have been training with Kristy for about two years. I would highly recommend her to anyone. I find her very professional, enthusiastic and dedicated to her clients.

I am an older person who is trying to get fit after years of little to no exercise. When I started working out on my own, I injured myself which led to trying out a personal trainer.

Kristy has been a godsend. She worked with my physiotherapist to set up an exercise program for me. She then took the initiative to find other assessment tools to further fine tune the program. Kristy schedules regular assessments to measure progress. She is careful to make sure that I maintaining proper posture and using the right muscles while I am working out and pushes me just the right amount so that I am improving but not injuring myself. Lastly she does all this with a positive encouraging attitude, sticking by me when I have set backs. "

"Kristy really puts the "personal" in personal training. She has spent a lot of time trying to understand my goals, and helping me make a realistic plan to meet them. She works really hard to make sure my fitness program makes sense for my situation. She's been a tremendous help to me while I recover from a sports injury, and has given me a lot of concrete advice that has made a big difference in my recovery.

Kristy offers so much more than just exercise: she has knowledge in nutrition, flexibility, interval work, endurance building, injury prevention, and range of motion, among other things. She has taken a lot of time to assess my fitness level to help me keep track of my progress, which is great for motivation. She's also extremely well-connected to the Ottawa community, and can offer useful advice about other fitness resources in the city.

Most importantly, Kristy is extremely passionate about her work, and cares a lot about all of her clients. I'd recommend her in a heartbeat

"Kristy has been my personal trainer since February of 2010.   At that point I had limited experience with personal trainers, and had not been actively involved in fitness/exercise programs for many years.  Kristy did a very thorough interview (1 hour) and series of tests (two 1.5 hour sessions) with me to determine my level of fitness and my goals.  Over the year I have worked with her (usually weekly sessions), she has created new, more challenging programs for me approximately every 6 weeks.   She has introduced me to equipment and techniques.  She has provided me with nutrition and supplement advice.   She has persuaded me to set new goals and timelines and encouraged me to meet them.  I find Kristy an excellent motivator.

My fitness level has gone from what I would call not very good (typical middle aged office worker, difficulty completing a 5k and poor muscle tone) to very good (I can easily run 45-60 minutes, have increased my overhead lifts by 15 lbs, have good muscle tone and greatly improved core, upper and lower body strength).

Because I am confident that Kristy Belanger's abilities, I have recently asked her to work with my 17-year old son, who is quite fit but needs to train different muscle groups so that he can play rugby this spring with less chance of injury. "

"Kristy has been my personal trainer for over one year. I am 72 years old and a couple of years ago I had an excessive amount of stress in my life and to compound matters I became ill and had to have surgery. At the same time I lost my son. When I started with Kristy I told her I wanted balance, flexibility and body strengthening. I can only say that to my surprise, I have surpassed these goals and  I now have a lot of energy and I am walking straighter and definitely feeling much stronger. I no longer take medication for my BP which continues to remain in the normal range.

Kristy is an intelligent, pleasant young woman, who loves her work and has great empathy for her clients. I think she is extremely suitable to work as a trainer for persons of all ages and all walks of life."  - Margaret


"I'm 45 and have been training since my teen years; weight lifting, running and now triathlons. I came to see Kristy because my off season workouts had become dull leaving me less than motivated in my training. Kristy had put together fun and challenging workouts for me in the past so I knew she could help re-energize my workouts again.

She started by providing me with detailed fitness tests including FMS screening and a great full body endurance workout. Although I was a little disappointed to see that I had lost some of the stamina I had gained from the previous year I wasn't given much time to dwell on it. One of Kristy's pronounced traits as a personal trainer is that she has great positive energy and enthusiasm that pushes you to keep striving forward. That kind of attitude is infectious so it wasn't long before I was exercising at intensity levels I wanted again. Kristy also offered to help me develop a full training program in preparation for the upcoming run/triathlon season. She took an iterative approach with the plan and continues to help me fine tune it. She provides me with posture feedback during workouts, suggests alternative exercises, and makes sure I have sufficient recovery time planned when we move things around. I now have a complete and exciting personalized program that includes power and endurance strength training, time for flexibility and mobility exercises as well as swimming, cycling and running.
