I have been exercising for over 20 years, and Donna Madonia is no doubt the best trainer I have hired. I have been training with her for about 3 years. She is mindful of what works for me personally, and doesn't do "boiler plate" training sessions. Rather, she evaluates you individually and knows what works and what doesn't work. I have had back and neck problems for years. Through Donna's training, I am more fit and stronger with much less pain. The right kind of form when exercising is crucial as well as the type and amount of weights one uses. Donna gets an overall rating of "10" and I highly recommend her.
I have been training with donna now for three years. Not only does Donna help build my streghth but she has helped to insure proper posture due to back and neck injuries from previous accidents. I highly recommend Donna as a personal trainer. She has helped me to stay focused and motivated.
Not only does she help you stay in physical shape but she also helps with wellness of spirit!!!
A true motivator! Donna has a talent for getting you to push yourself further then you thought you could. The best part about Donna is she does this in a fun-spirited, positive way.

Donna has provided me with creative and interesting workouts to target my fitness interests, from a workout to generally tone to a specific one to improve core muscles and balance to get me in shape for surfing. She is super-friendly and encouraging - even if I don't have an appointment with her, she always says hi when she sees me.

I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart! You have done so much for me... words cannot explain.
I have never felt better in my life and I owe it all to you. Just knowing when I was going to meet with you, no matter how I felt you were going to make me fell that I could do anything.
I have beaten my cancer and I have you to thank for it. I feel incredible and look better than I ever have in my 56 years o f life! You are an angel and someone I will always cherish!!!

Several months back feeling totally frustrated with the lack of any significant change in my body I enlisted the help of Donna Madonia a personal trainer at the gym I had been going to for a full year.
Within weeks of working with Donna there was such a dramatic change to my outward appearance that people I both knew and didn't know were stopping me to compliment me. Never in a million years would I think that I could have muscle tone and definition that I saw on other people training around me.
After 45 years of looking and feeling one way I now have more energy and strength due to the varied weight program that Donna has worked out for me. She is a true motivating factor with her boundless energy and extensive knowledge that she continues to share with me and her other clients.
I am a nationally established best-selling author (BUILDING THE SUCCESSFUL THEATER COMPANY, THEATER FESTIVALS, Allworth Press; BYE, BYE BOREDOM!, Scholastic, Inc.) and magazine contributor (GLAMOUR, MARIE CLAIRE, SEVENTEEN, WEIGHT WATCHERS, MUSCLE & FITNESS HERS, AMERICAN HEALTH & FITNESS, VIBRANT LIFE and many additional domestic/international titles). Donna Madonia frequently assists me as exercise consultant for my health/fitness related writing. I heartily endorse Donna's professionalism, experience, and expert abilities.
Donna is highly knowledgeable about an extremely wide range of fitness-related topics. She delivers consistently superb and thorough research on the many diverse and challenging fitness questions I pose to her. She does an excellent job in both creating specialized exercise routines for print, and making certain that these routines safe and easily understandable for the millions of readers who peruse my work.
I have worked with many consultants on my pieces over the years, and Donna's work is peerless. Her advice and contributions have impressed numerous editors I have worked with as well.
Donna is extremely organized, meets deadlines effortlessly, and is personable, pleasant, and meticulous. I look forward to collaborating with her on many more projects, and feel that any professional or client who has the opportunity to work with her is very fortunate indeed!
Donna Madonia earns my highest recommendation.
