Success Story – Clare Stanish

October 17, 2017 2:10 pm / Posted in


I would like to congratulate Clare on her successful journey in getting into shape and for following her dreams. She lost a grand total of 56 pounds and 33 inches in one year. This was not an easy journey for Clare. She had a very stressful job and become ill half way through the program. Clare stuck to the program when times were really tough and because of this she is a completely new person.  She is in excellent health, quit her job and opened up her own business called Busy Bee Organize – . Clare is a much more confidant women today, is stronger, and has the tools to be successful in her daily life. Please enjoy reading her story.


“I started to exercise because I knew I needed to change my lifestyle. I had moved out of my parents house fresh out of high school and once I started making decisions for myself (like what I was eating) I got a little out of control. I was eating a lot of junk and not exercising at all.  Looking back, I know that I was depressed but didn’t know what to do about it…. until my soon to be mother in-law suggested we try personal training together.”

“The first time I came to Burke’s studio I felt a bit intimidated and nervous. Here I was overweight and feeling like a slob. He was kind, friendly, and made me feel at ease. He made me feel like he understood my struggles and that he would be there for me every step of the way as I started my fitness journey.  I quickly felt very at ease and welcome coming into the studio. Burke is very personable and gets to know his clients well. He has a great sense of humour and always makes sure we have fun during our sessions :)”


“I definitely helped reached my goals. To start, he gave me exercises at my skill level and slowly built me up to where I can do basically anything I set my mind to. I had some personal struggles while training and he showed a huge amount of compassion and understanding and went out of his way to accommodate me during this time.”

“He is very knowledgeable, caring, and understanding. If I was having trouble with anything he would stop and help me out. He makes suggestions and shares his wealth of knowledge without hesitation. I found this very helpful especially at the beginning while I was making a lot lifestyle changes and felt like I needed the extra support.”


“Burke is an amazing personal trainer. I owe a lot to him as I feel much happier, healthier, and ready to take on the world in my “new” body! Now I feel great! The encouragement and enthusiasm Burke has motivates me to keep pushing and trying new things.”

“Every Saturday is a blast! I wake up looking forward to seeing Burke and going in for a workout. Looking forward to lots more fun and sweat at our Saturday sessions :)”
