“My name is Mike Krieger, and I’m the co-founder of Instagram and its former CTO.
My wife and I sought out Ariel for personal training services, starting a year and a half ago. We were particularly excited to find Ariel since she brought a combination of energetic workouts with a deep understanding of the human body and overall fitness.
The improvements in my overall strength and form have been noticeable, ranging from becoming more proficient at pull-ups to steadily increasing my deadlifts and other weight exercises.
Beyond just strength, though, Ariel has helped me understand how to think about my physical fitness holistically and long-term.
I’ve recommended Ariel to other friends and would absolutely recommend her for her services.”
“Working with Ariel has been a huge improvement on my overall health and well-being.
I started working with Ariel 8-months postpartum after the birth of my first child. Prior to my pregnancy, I was an active runner and yogi, and regularly worked on core strength.
After pregnancy, my core was basically destroyed and had some pelvic floor dysfunction. Ariel helped me rehab my core in such a thoughtful way, and now I’m feeling so much better and stronger (stronger than I was before pregnancy!).
I thought my stomach would look perpetually pregnant, and not only do I feel like I have my old stomach and pelvic floor back, I get regular compliments on how I look.
As a former athlete, Ariel has also handled my rehab with empathy and support. I was so frustrated with taking things slow, but also knew that if I pushed too hard it might set me back. Ariel has just the right level of enthusiasm and celebrates my wins. She’s able to make significant progress with me even though I’m only seeing her once a week with my working-mom schedule.
My partner and I have also benefited from Ariel’s nutritional coaching services, as she’s helped us find clean and filling meals that can be prepped in an hour and last all week.
I’m so thankful to have started working with Ariel, and look forward to working with her for many years to come.”
“Ariel has been my personal trainer and coaching me on how to optimize my overall health, and to be honest, it’s been a pretty transformational experience for me.
I first reached out to Ariel for help because for about a whole year, I had not prioritized my mind or my body and I was feeling pretty crappy in every way possible. I didn’t even feel like myself anymore.
Ariel has really gotten to know me as a person and my body’s abilities and needs. She’s so thoughtful in her approach to coaching. I feel like she genuinely really cares and takes the time to cater all of our workouts and health sessions to my needs. She’s also taught me how to be really mindful of so many important things like how to set a sleep routine and how to listen to my body. She’s even taught me how to be a more mindful eater, and she has the most fun and effective workouts!
Since working with Ariel, my joint pain is almost completely gone. My strength and endurance have improved dramatically. I’m way more flexible, my sleep is 10 times more restful, I have improved energy, and my emotional wellbeing is the best it’s ever been.
Ariel is so great at her job and I just feel really grateful that I’ve had the opportunity to work with her, and I hope you do too.”
"I've been working with Ariel for just under two years on fitness, posture, and general well being.
She's helped me with some specific RSI issues that I've had from computer and phone overuse, and she's also given me a lot of nutritional guidance that has really helped.
Overall, it's been really spectacular. I've lost over 30 pounds, my posture is better, I feel better, I sleep better, and I just generally have found it to be a much better way to live.
So if you're on the fence about working with Ariel, I really can't recommend it enough; give it a try."
“I’m a female in my mid-thirties who was looking to tone up and feel in better shape.
I’m busy and prioritizing workouts can be hard for me, so making the best use of my time is super important.
[Ariel] knows her stuff and caters her workouts to your body type and goals. I’m someone who gets bored easily but Ariel definitely switches it up enough and keeps you on your toes.
Ariel helps me feel and look my best. And the best part is that Ariel is someone you will always look forward to seeing. She’s an awesome person, great attitude, and will push you just the right amount. I am so grateful for her!”
“I’ve been working in the fitness industry for about 30 years. I decided to start working with Ariel about 2 months ago because I wasn’t seeing the results that I expected to see [in my health]; I felt frustrated and stuck.
Ariel put together a plan for me with nutrition, meditation… just basically my whole life. I’ve lost 15 pounds, I sleep better, I feel better, my skin is improving, I wake up in the morning without an alarm, and that is honestly a miracle.
Ariel really knows me; she gets me. I really appreciate the time we spend talking during our coaching sessions. I’ve gained so much confidence and I’m enjoying food again.
If you are looking to take your health to the next level, I can not recommend a better person to help than Ariel. She’s the best.”
“Ariel was my personal trainer at Equinox in SF for close to a year. She is an excellent motivator and planner and ensured we had a new and different workout each session, individually planned to help meet my goals, and challenging me to continue to progress towards them.
She was always on time with a smile on her face and was focused on me and ensuring we maximized our time together. She frequently added in tips about nutrition and additional workout options and really practiced what she preached.
Ariel is serious and committed to what she does, but is fun and interesting as well. I moved to Southern California and miss her greatly!!
I highly recommend Ariel to anyone looking for an overall health coach who can help you achieve your personal goals.”
