In August 2009 I suffered a detachment of the ACL of my
knee. In preparation for an ACL reconstruction surgery,
I hired Rhonda as a personal trainer to assist me in strengthening the muscles surrounding the knee. At the time, I was also suffering from a shoulder injury: a tear in my After a bad experience, with a nameless trainer, it took me a long time and some real encouragement,to phone
for an initial appointment with Rhonda. There was some reluctance to
