Fitness & Weight Loss Coach
Making fitness a lifestyle, not a job.
Valerie Gangi Howard
Fitness has been a huge part of my life since I was 20 years old. I always worked in the corporate world but through the years I became successful at my "working out hobby" doing competitions. And....thats where the story naturally matured.
Now that I have retired from the corporate world, I get the opportunity to coach others on their fitness journey through exercise, diet, and learning good habits. The primary goal in my strategies is to help you think differently about fitness. The Goal, to create lasting behavioral change through positivity and confidence as you become the best version of you.

I would like to take a minute to thank someone who has made a great impact in my life, in a short period of time.
I began a fitness program with Valerie 8 weeks ago, and from day one, I was impressed with her focus and dedication to my goals and my health.
I know that some can be sceptical about online training, but Valerie put any question I had to rest. With video chats, and regular communication via text messages, phone calls and her PT application, it was all I needed to be motivated to restart my fitness journey. In the beginning Valerie took the time to get to know me and created a personalized plan. Each week, as needed, she would adjust my program to meet my needs and was always conscientious of my schedule and time restraints.
What I have appreciated about Valerie through this time, and what makes her stand out the most, is her knowledge. I always felt like I was learning from her with every conversation, and this knowledge is something that I will take with me for years to come! In the past I have started and stopped many different "fitness programs" that clearly didnt last longer than that term. With the support and dedication from Valerie, I now feel much more prepared and educated to be able to carry on this healthy lifestyle. My fitness journey is by no means over, it has only just begun.
Thank you so much for all you have done for me Valerie! I not only feel more confident in my skin, but it's amazing how much better I feel every day. You have made a tremendous change in the way I think about food, physical activity, and what being healthy means. Because of you, I look forward to the months and years ahead in my journey!

"I have worked with many personal trainers over the years, I can honestly say that Valerie is the most inspiring and motivating coach I have ever had. I have to admit that initially I was skeptical about doing an online training program, but once I started using Valerie's amazing fitness and nutrition app, all doubts are gone.
From our first Skype meeting, I could tell she was going to do everything possible to make the program work for me. The app is a life saver, personalized by Valerie to fit my goals, and so easy to use! Every thing is planned for you, and the workout instructional videos make it just like having your trainer right next to you. Within just a few weeks of following her program, I have had muscle gains and weight loss, and I am feeling so much stronger! She checks in on me and encourages me, she is really the best trainer that I have ever had!
I highly recommend Valerie and her program. =)"

"Working with Valerie has been the best decision I’ve made for myself. Valerie takes the time to listen, is upfront and honest. She helped my understand the process and what it will take to meet my goal. Valerie took her time building a custom food plan and training program that fit my needs and lifestyle. She helps keep me accountable by tracking my food log and making sure my workouts she designed are working out for me. The app is easy to use and it keeps me accountable when logging my food and workouts.
I couldn’t be happier with my decision to work with Valerie, I’m seeing the results and loving it. I would recommend Valerie to all my friends and family, she’s truly the best and she is very knowledgeable."
