"This is the longest I've ever stuck to an exercise program."-Cecille

"Lori is an incredibly thoughtful and inspiring personal trainer. She writes carefully researched workout plans that took into consideration my needs as a new mom. She has the right mix of understanding and encouragement to help me achieve my fitness goals. I always feel happier after a small group training class, and I've been going several times each month since March 2011! "--Jeanine

"Lori Murphy did a great job with my workout!! She was patient, and corrected any technique problems, without being intimidating. She knew my level, and pushed me, but was kind about it. Thanks Lori! I was SORE the next day, but totally worth it! "--LeAnne

"Just put on an old pair of jeans and they are kinda tight, my weight is about the same, which means......I've put on muscle! My arms and abs are starting to look pretty sweet too! Thanks Lori, you RULE!"--Kelly

When I'd get tired, I'd hear you say Kathy you're strong.-November 2014

About the Name

"Because you can" and "Do it like you mean it" are phrases I often heard from my dance teacher Colleen, who has always inspired her students to do the best they can, because they can. I’ve always taken her words to heart so this name is dedicated to her. She is truly a wonderful teacher, mentor, and friend.

Unemployment can sometimes be a blessing in disguise. After losing my desk job and finding it hard to get another one, I turned to exercise for both its mental and physical benefits. I was amazed at what I discovered. I was still unemployed, but my attitude changed, my energy increased, and I found myself loving the “new me.” A healthy lifestyle has its own rewards, and I had just discovered them. With these changes came a desire to share with others my experiences.We are living in a world today where people are less healthy and more overweight then ever. If you see yourself falling into that trap and want to do something about it, I'm here to help. I hope you will join me in living a fit and healthy lifestyle. Why? Because You Can
