The Doctor's jaw dropped. He was stoked!
So I have two Huge "thank you's" today:
1. To our Coach Corinne Greenhalgh @ Body Revolution for pushing and challenging me every day! The best trainer! mixes it up every day, distracts and redirects my energy to the workout to keep me focused.
2. To my lovely wife, Megan Gallagher Melusky for all of your support and believing in me to do the thing I never thought I could ever achieve.

I helped Jill rehab from knee surgery the summer of 2010. She had muscular atrophy, weakness, as well as decreased endurance in the affected leg. We spent a solid 4-6 weeks building her strength and endurance back up and then were able to add in some speed, plyometric, and agility drills. We also focused on injury prevention for the upcoming season. The summer of 2011 we worked on overall strength and conditioning as well as injury prevention. She went on to have one of the best seasons of her career.

I thought and thought before coming up with a way to thank you for changing my life and my husbands life. I have finally come up with it so here it goes: I believe everything happens for a reason. We originally left the health club you were working at before you were working their and then decided to go back to that club for reasons unknown. My husband was a 460 pound man at the time and I was afraid I was going to grow old alone. He saw you training someone and said to me that you seemed like a good trainer so I went and got him a training session with you. Remember that first session you almost had to call 911! You came to me to let me know how worried you were and that was the start of a fantastic road to recovery for him. He now weighs in at 275, is on his way to get spinning certified, and personal training certified! As for me I am unable to let my multiple sclerosis beat me so I decided to stick with a trainer who can kick my butt but understand my disease and work with my weaknesses without allowing them to get the way of my goals!
I hope people see this and realize how one small thing can change life for the better. When my husband and myself decided that if we took better care of ourselves we could take better care of each other we had won! Not only had we won our lives back we acquired a new lease on life! That Corinne is something that not every trainer can give to someone! You not only helped us physically but emotionally you have shown us that nothing and I mean nothing is impossible! The proof was crossing the finish line of the Providence Rock "n" Roll 1/2 Marathon hand in hand with my husband!
Thank you for not only being a great trainer but for being a great person and a great friend!
Your Client for Life,
OMG I can't believe how great I look! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for a wonderful program. I wouldn't look or feel this great without you. You are a gift from the heavens! I love you for all your help and encouragement! I cannot wait until 7-10-11!
So Happy!!! Best Run ever, seven miles with hills. Thank You for helping me reach this goal.
I knew you where going to be one of the best trainers Raynham has ever had... I had you tagged from the very begining, the niceset genuine person that takes her time to get to know her clients and actually care about them.
