"I don't have Tonya Rocho's email address, so can you tell her that I finally figured out her run with the hip thing, like a bounce, it's nice. I need a 15:54 for my two mile run and I ran a 15:37 for my last pt test. The one before her techniques was an 18:18. Tell her I'm doing well and I've probably made like 50 copies of her workout she gave me and passed them out. People were asking me where I got this workout from and when I showed them the handouts they all asked for copies. We now do her workout at 6am and 5pm every day if mission dictates it. I had to reserve the aerobics tent for both times because it is full, like 25-30 people a session. Please tell her to send some more exercises, whoop my butt."
You have no idea what a mile stone this is for Mic, not only keeping up with your workout program, but passing it along and sharing it with others and writing back about it. This is coming from an Asperger's kid who doesn't socialize with others, talk or write about things he's doing!! He really connected with you Tonya, and for that we are ever grateful to you for.

My cardio was off the charts. So...with the diet we set up for myself and fitness program I feel Tonya took "personal training" to a new level. She really put the personal in our training and was very true and sincere in our workouts. She was brutally honest with me during my weigh ins and body fat checks. She always says the numbers keep you honest. Finally....Tonya is a no nonsense trainer and has a great personal training gym. She has plenty of weights and other equipment to keep one busy and fresh. So...I suggest...if you are looking for a "real personal trainer", see out Tonya at Rock Solid Wellness Studio. You won't be sorry you did.
I have just finished a three month fitness and weight loss program with Tonya. After my three months I added an additional month because I thought I needed it. I am 62 years old and was somewhat out of shape and over weight. Other than disc golf as a form of exercise my fitness level was pretty much non existent for about two years. In the beginning I could barely complete my first fitness assessment. Leading up to my final assessment I made strides with body fat loss and strength levels. With the last assessment I handily completed everything Tonya gave me to do.
When I started in bootcamp, I was not in good shape, and yet I never felt out of place or self conscious. The workouts are a balance of cardio, strengthening, and stretching. Recently someone asked me about working out, and did I hate it? If I hated it, I certainly would not do it. I really enjoy it. I get to work out every morning with an enthusiastic, knowledgeable trainer and a group of fun and encouraging people.
Working with Tonya is a great investment in your health and it's fun too!
I started working out at Rock Solid because I wanted to have better health. I have been doing the Boot Camp for 8 months. That is the longest that I have ever stuck with an exercise program. I really like having a set schedule for exercising since it keeps it a priority. Bootcamp is not boring, because every day it is something different.
Hi Tonya, Finally heard from Mic. He is gone on missions for 14-21 days. I wanted to send you what Mic wrote me regarding your workout. Thought you would get a kick out of his comments and that your workout program is reaching across the globe to the sands of Iraq -- hey, it may be a promising business venture in the future for soldiers in the military for you!!
Working out at Rock Solid Studio is enjoyable, challenging, fun, and never boring. Tonya also has a great background in nutrition and can provide menu plans which work together with exercise to accelerate reaching your goals. I started working out at Rock Solid just over 6 months ago and I am very pleased with my results. I have increased strength and my endurance and I have more energy too!
Working with Tonya is a great investment in your health and it's fun too!
Tonya does a super job as a personal trainer, nutritional expert and motivator. She is enthusiastic, very energetic and professional in her work with her clients. You can tell she really enjoys what she does. Tonya takes the time to help you set personal goals and creates workouts to help you reach them. Her great coaching advice gives her clients the most effective techniques to get the best results quickly. She keeps the workouts new and changes routines to keep it interesting.
Tonya is so knowledgeable, and I trust what she tells us to do. I know I am not going to get injured. Tonya makes sure to explain modifications for each exercise, so as not to aggravate old injuries or create new ones. She takes into account each person's fitness needs, so that you never feel that you are over or under pushed. She always stresses doing the exercise right and at your own level.
I truly am enjoying Boot Camp!!! I didn't think I would like working out in the early morning but I actually love it! I have more energy during the day and I do feel good.
Not only has she coached me in properly exercising my body, but she's also helped me better feed my body as well as teaching me better food choices for my family since I'm the one preparing the meals at home. Today we, my family, are fit, energized and enjoy being active as a family.
My husband just completed his first adventure race which consisted of a 30 mile bike ride, 10 mile canoe ride and a 4 mile hiking/orienteering trek and enjoyed every minute of it. We plan on doing another one in the fall, my first one since I'm expecting in June. We are also teaching physical activity to my 3 year old and showing her the importance of it.
I've been training throughout my pregnancy...yes, pregnant ladies can workout too. I was just as surprised to hear the news but also glad that I would be able to keep up with my workouts and not lose any head way we had made prior to me being pregnant. This pregnancy has been so great. I've had more energy, been able to work longer than my first pregnancy since my work is physical work.
I've been able to manage my weight very well only gaining approximately 25lbs and I'm already 7 1/2 months along. I'm grateful to have met Tonya. I was at the point of giving in to the food cravings and just letting my body go! Now I'm so glad that I didn't. I'm enjoying life and able to keep up with my 3 year old without loosing wind anymore.
My life is more fulfilling and gratifying. You too can succeed at this; I'm just a regular person like you that needed some pushing and guidance. A personal trainer is well worth it; Tonya is worth it. Her knowledge in physical fitness and nutrition is awesome. Just when you think you've got the hang of of thing or think this getting easy, she picks up on it and brings it on.
I encourage you to try Tonya out; she will change your life and the lives of people around you as it did for my family and one of my patients. She too noticed my results and asked what my secret was. She came back 3 months later and was proud to say that she had lost 95lbs! She was a totally different person, she had melted away. It was awesome to see. She told me that I was her inspiration...I was just blown away, excited and surprised that I could do that! Inspire someone, me! If this happened to me I know it can happen to you too. Small steps create great change. Take the leap you won't regret it."

"I would highly recommend Rock Solid Wellness Studio. Tonya is a delightful and very motivating trainer. She understands the hardship of trying to get fit and healthy. She is always willing to go above and beyond to help you achieve your goal. I will continue with Tonya as a trainer until all of my goals have been met! 5 STARS FOR THIS BUSINESS!"
Tonya has been my personal trainer since 2008. At that point I was ready to give up. I had reached my plateau and was very frustrated with my body. Once "under her wing" inches began to fall off, my energy began to rise and people started noticing all of our hard work.
After your class I realized that for the first time I could truly feel athletic at some point. This is something I have never felt, I never played any sports for recreation or in school, I am lacking in grace and coordination and have always felt I missed out on that ability of athleticism. I guess I just want to say I felt great, when I caught my breath, after today and you are a wonderful trainer.
Thank you and see you tomorrow morning!
I would like to thank you for a wonderful start to my morning. I love the class - OK maybe not during the lunges or a few other choice exercises, but I felt comfortable to push myself but not to a point where I needed to prove anything to anyone other than myself, and by the way, that I did.
