All of her workouts are specifically catered to my progress and goals. She's extremely knowledgeable and cares about each one of her clients both in and out of the gym. Candice continues to help me achieve my goals and produce the results that I want. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a little boost in the gym or wants to completely transform themselves.
I met Candice when she was an instructor at Orange Theory Fitness and liked her immediately. Whether working with her one-one-one for personal training or in a group setting, she is very focused on form and insuring that you are getting the most out of every movement. And don't let her quiet demeanor fool you…she is a beast and will give you the workout you need, even when you don’t want it! She truly and genuinely wants to see her clients succeed and be the best that they can be! Candice rocks!
Candice Cunningham is a talented and creative personal fitness trainer! She is completely dedicated to helping her clients achieve their fitness goals; she develops personal programs for everyone that are challenging and never boring. Every day is different with Candice! She keeps you motivated and focused with her results-driven style of training. She’s the BEST!
I have been working out with Candice for over two years now. I have always worked out my entire life but through the years I've put work and other personal commitments before my workout regiment. Candice has helped me get back on track to where I need to be with my exercise goals as well as weight loss and eating healthy. She clearly cares about her clients and is passionate about helping them achieve their goals.
My favorite part of working out with Candice is that our sessions are very efficient. We always work multiple areas using compound movements and get a great work out in without spending hours at the gym!
Candice has always been so conscious of the safest and most personal way to get fit. Many other trainers I have been to don't seem to customize workouts to the individual and just want to see results through the same monotonous exercises. Candice genuinely puts the health of her clients first while varying each workout to keep it interesting and challenging her clients by targeting new muscle groups each session.
I have always felt that she prioritizes her clients by ensuring that no previous injuries are aggravated during a workout, modifying an exercise to a client's ability, and focusing on the safest way to loose weight through an overall healthy lifestyle. I think it speaks volumes to her character that she is so passionate about her client's individual goals.
Candice is always so positive about what she does and she has helped me to lose inches over this past year. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a trainer that will be there every step of the way.
I have been training with Candice for a year now in my journey to healthy, and she is just amazing! I have come such a long way, but I wouldn't be ready now to hike, snorkel and white water raft again without her support and encouragement. When I hit the gym with her, I know that she pushes me harder than I would push myself. But I trust her and I always feel safe training with her (which is a big deal when you really have a long way to go)!. I am really fortunate to have found such an amazing trainer!!!

Our small office team has been working with Candice for about a year and seen terrific results. She plans specific exercises for each of our abilities yet makes working out as a group fun and motivational.

Candice has been a really inspirational trainer to work with. She comes up with fresh approaches; and when I have had some injury, knows how to adjust the workout routine to improve and speed along the healing
Working out with Candice is the best decision I made in a long time. She knew exactly how to evaluate my fitness level and push me just enough in each workout to drive me beyond what I think I can accomplish. She constantly changes the workouts introducing new and exciting unique exercises that drive results. As an advanced tennis player, I need a strong core and legs and Candice definitely specializes in these areas. Candice has taken me to the next level of my fitness and I can't thank her enough for that!
I'm a runner. I haven't always considered myself a runner, but 10 year or so ago I discovered that I enjoyed the sport, and it was a good escape from life's frustrations. It also helped me keep my lupus under control during a very stressful time in my life. I ran 5Ks, then discovered half marathons and worked my way up to full marathons. At my peak marathon condition, I was thin. Way too thin, but I didn't realize it. I thought being thin was healthy. And you'd NEVER see me in a gym.
While training for my second marathon, I injured my knee. I had run with a stability knee brace for years, but this injury was worse - unbelievable swelling and resulted in physical therapy. My physical therapist got the swelling under control and got my knee strong enough to complete the marathon, but insurance would not allow me to work with her to get back to full strength.
I continued to run short distances, doing what exercises I could remember to get strong, but I had no structure (or accountability) to my workouts. I also moved during that time and my running schedule was thrown completely out of whack. I joined a gym so I could try to rehab myself, but because I didn't know what to do, I didn't get too far. I was running less, burning less calories, and still eating the same. Yes, I gained weight.
Finally, I met Candice. She met with me a couple times a week for a month or so, but I wasn't seeing the results I had wanted. She assessed my diet, and knew right off that, although I was eating good food (fresh, non-GMO whenever possible), I was eating all wrong ( I ate like a runner...high carb, not much else). So, I decided it was time to get serious and let her do what she does best
When Candice asked me to write a testimonial for her, I agreed, but to be honest, I had NO idea what to write. I mean, what do you really say? I pay money for her to make me do stuff I hate. The end, right? It wasn't until I looked at a photo of myself from December of last year (2012) and a photo of myself from November of this year (2013) that I found the words I needed to say to her: thank you. I started this journey back in June/July as "something to do." There was no goal outside of that. I didn't really think I'd stick with it
And if I'm being 100% honest here, I really didn't think it was going to work. Each week, we spend a half hour together and in all this time, she has NEVER pressured me to lose x amount of pounds or x percentage of body fat in x amount of time. She forces nothing on me and she never makes me feel bad for being human. We simply focus on having a good work out and getting stronger. She motivates me to do my best. She never settles for anything less than that. As one session morphed in to 6 months of hard work with Candice, I was really surprised that I a) stuck with it, b) enjoyed it, and c) I didn't care what the number on the scale was. This whole time, I had no idea the person I was becoming on the outside thanks to her, and as I type this and look at these pictures, I am still absolutely in disbelief .
So, to Candice: thank you from the bottom of my heart: thank you.
To you, the person reading this: whats the worse you have to lose? Send her an email, schedule a session, and stick with her. I promise that you will not be sorry!
And warning, don't be fooled by how little Candice is; she WILL kick your butt.
Where do I even begin? This weight loss, physical training, body building puzzle has been a crazy up and down journey. I have worked so hard for 2 years to find the right balance for myself and it never seemed to happen. It was a breath of fresh air to have the guess work taken out of what do I eat, how much do I eat, and what the right balance was for me with training. I have looked forward to every Sunday getting the menu ideas and work outs! It brought about excitement for what I had to look forced to in workouts and made saying with eating clean a breeze! I can't thank you enough for all your encouragement and info and for helping meet a goal I struggled to reach alone. 10 lbs in a month and 1/2" off my things feels amazing!!! I can't wait to see where else my journey with you will take me!
