My strength and muscle tone has improved dramatically
after only 3 months of training. Looking slim and fit
is a plus, but by far the greatest benefit is how great
I feel about myself.”

" If you are considering getting a Personal Trainer,
I highly recommend One to One Fitness. I am a marathon
runner and was a long-term client of Sherry’s.
Her intense, but fun classes enabled me to build up
my core strength, weight and cross train safely, and
ultimately knock 30 minutes off my marathon time in
only 6 months. Her many years of training and experience
enabled her to properly assess my needs, level of fitness
and design a programme that worked best for me. I thoroughly
enjoyed the small, intimate work out classes, and the
personal attention she gave me in a relaxed but energetic
environment. It also gave me the opportunity to meet
some new people and make new friends. Sherry is always
extremely supportive of my endeavours and has helped
me push myself to make sure I achieved my goals. It
‘s the first time I ‘ve ever looked forward
to a workout, not dreaded it – this I believe,
is the highest recommendation of all! "
- Glenn Cohen, age 46, Vancouver
“Three years ago I started strength training with
Sherry and One to One. I wanted to keep well so as not
to be a health burden to my family and society, also
for my own self esteem. I got it all and more from Sherry.
I am feeling great, fat has turned to muscle and I do
get many compliments on how much younger I look; at
83 this makes me feel good! Sherry’s program has
enhanced my energy level, my flexibility, and my self-esteem."
- Eve Humphrys, 83 years old, Vancouver
" Sherry was my Personal Trainer for more than
two years while she was living in Vancouver. Unfortunately,
she relocated and that is the only reason she is not
my trainer. Together, we were able to achieve terrific
results but more important than my physical changes,
Sherry brought her personality and her professionalism
each time we trained. She always showed such a sincere
interest in my well-being and used her talents to get
me to do my routines when most of the time, like most
people, I was not in the mood to do them. It is her
personality that makes the difference, her smile and
perseverance that makes her a skilled and talented trainer.
As such, I give Sherry my utmost reference and would
encourage any person considering a trainer to utilize
Sherry. It can make a world of difference."

" Sherry Ulaszonek is not only the best trainer
I know, but she is also my mother. Throughout my life
she has kept our family fit and active. Throughout teenage
hormones and two pregnancies she's always been there
to keep me looking my best with her fun, evolving and
challenging fitness regimens. I know my mom has spent
years perfecting which muscles and exercises are key
to maintaining ones womanly (hourglass) shape. Her workouts
make my body not just strong, but sexier too. I wouldn't
trust any other trainer. "

*Sherry did the impossible! She made fitness fun, effective
and a highlight in my busy, overcrowded life!
- Leigh Badgley, Producer/Director, Vancouver
Throughout my athletic career, I always wanted a Personal
Trainer but could not really afford one. When I found
One To One Fitness, I was impressed instantly. One to
One Fitness was what I hoped it would be, people to
socialize with yet personal attention. The classes are
small, Sherry is personable and knowledgeable. A variety
of exercises revolve around free weights, Swedish Ball
and Medicine Ball. I have worked out on my own and been
involved with Boot Camps and find this is the perfect
solution. You are in doors, it’s heated, there’s
no rain and little, if any down time between exercises.
I am getting stronger and my hockey game has improved
considerably. I have been going for the last 4 months
and I foresee being there a lot longer.
- Glenn Bedard, Teacher, Victoria
*Working out with Sherry not only increased my strength
and energy, but it prevents me from getting injured
in my work. Everything, even my skin looks better!
- Deborah Trudel, Owner, Belise Garden Designs,
*Sherry did the impossible – she took me from
huffing and puffing around the block to running the
Honolulu Marathon. She did this with great patience
and professionalism, wonderful humor and a sense of
commitment above and beyond the call of duty. She made
exercise fun again!”

My name is Jacquie, I am a grandmother who has worked
out and run for years (marathoner), in fact I worked
as a trainer for 8 years in a gym. But Sherry has made
the biggest difference in my workouts. She is my motivation;
she knows my weakness and troubled areas and goes for
it. She comes with my highest recommendation.’
- Jacquie Stannard, Sydney
"I have been going to Sherry's classes for three
months and am delighted at the results: I am stronger,
feel better and look better! Sherry is very knowledgeable
and her small classes ensure that she can monitor each
student to make sure he or she is doing each exercise
correctly. She is also very flexible and adds exercises
to meet individual needs. Classes are always varied
and Sherry ensures the whole body gets a workout. I'm

*Since I started working out at Sherry's One to One
Fitness Studio, I have not only lost weight and inches;
my upper body strength has improved immeasurably. Her
studio is well equipped and has the added advantage
of an outdoor garden area for fair weather workouts.
She leads you through the various programs in a friendly,
relaxed manner, while being careful to provide individual
attention to each client.
- Joan Jamieson, age 74, Victoria
" I give Sherry's strength training program all
the credit for helping me to enjoy and to improve such
activities as tennis, swimming, skiing, golf and rowing.
It has allowed me to be injury-free and I am no longer
stiff at the beginning of ski season."
- Marily Mearns, Vancouver, Occupation:

*I believe One To One Fitness offers the most intensive,
results oriented training available. Sherry's combination
of cardio and strength training has allowed me to lose
more than 20 pounds in the last 4 months. I have seen
my metabolism skyrocket, and am stronger now then I
have ever been in my life. Sherry's approach has challenged
me to work hard, and her small class sizes are great.
I particularly appreciate her creative approach to fitness,
and her willingness to incorporate new techniques into
our workouts. It keeps things fresh, and never boring.
- Jennifer Farry, Victoria
*Sherry truly has been given a gift. I needed a program
that worked for me. Physically, I was no runner; I wanted
to have fun within my time schedule/budget. My biggest
desire of all though was to see results... and she tailored
an excellent program for me. She helped to instill fitness
into my lifestyle, which I continue to this day. I will
be forever grateful.
- Maureen Kehoe, age 40 President Mekka Sales,
*I love Sherry’s classes! Her strength training
classes are totally upbeat and vigorous (and FUN). She
pushes hard (but not TOO hard.) The yoga classes compliment
her challenging Pilates classes and weight training
classes, by keeping the students flexible and relaxed.
Sherry is a wonderful motivator who likes to push us
to our boundaries in her Pilates classes and strength
classes but at the same time she has a beautiful soothing
voice with which to enjoy her lovely soothing yoga classes.
I recommend her classes to anyone either living in Victoria
or drop in to a class, if you’re just visiting
Victoria. You’ll be glad you did!!
- Sunny Trim, Owner Vancouver Corporate Yoga
*Seven years ago, Sherry’s enthusiasm for leading
an active life led me to take up strength training and
running under her professional guidance. Starting with
a walk/run program that led to longer and longer runs,
we eventually took on the challenge of running the Honolulu
marathon. Together, step-by-step, we gazed at the beautiful
scenery, endured the heat, and crossed the finish line!
Ever since Sherry encouraged me to “get active”,
regular cardio and strength training activities have
been integral components of my lifestyle. Not only has
my physical body benefited but my mental health is strong
and I am much better at coping with stress.
- Gail Hammond, Registered Dietitian, Vancouver
*About 7 years ago I met Sherry while training to run
the Sun Run. She then inspired me to train with her
at her studio. And I have subsequently not looked back!
At my age of 52 I have kept up the training, thanks
to her and am fitter than I have ever been. I have run
over 14 half’s and 3 marathons and now also train
others. She has been an inspiration. Training with Sherry
has been fun, productive and very fruitful. I would
highly recommend her as a trainer because she is good
for your body, your spirit and your sense of humor!
- Nazreen Suhner, Designer, Vancouver
My name is Brook Sanderson. I am 25-year-old registered
massage therapist. Before I began training with Sherry
I was nervous about overworking my upper body by using
weights. I couldn't have been more wrong. Sherry's classes
have helped my posture by strengthening my back and
I now feel balance has been restored to my body. Not
to mention the results are quick and the definition
looks great! Sherry is great at tailoring the workouts
to meet my individual needs. I would recommend her classes
to anyone wanting to shape up and improve their posture.

*I have been a client of One to One Fitness for two
years now and have referred many of my clients to Sherry.
She is extremely knowledgeable in dealing with rehabilitation
of injuries and building core strength. Within only
a few sessions I have observed remarkable improvement
in my clients
that have seen Sherry. I continue to attend Sherry's
classes and will happily recommend her to any of my

"I trained with Sherry for over 4 years and within
the first 3 months under her guidance it produced excellent
results. I completed a 9-day mountain adventure in the
B.C. backcountry carrying a 55lb pack and I ran my first
10K. 2 months later, Sherry's fitness training was instrumental
in me running in my first marathon and completing it
in 3hrs & 52mins."
- Sachin Poovaiah, QA Manager, age 32, Vancouver
" I believe that your environment determines future
lifestyles; I was raised in an environment that nurtured
the importance of health and exercise without really
realizing it, to me it was just the way of life. I first
realized that not everyone is exercise conscious when
my mom put on a workshop on exercise and nutrition.
I was shocked by all the unfit participants and remember
saying "I just thought everyone else was like us".
The great thing about my mom is that she has a way of
influencing you to exercise without you noticing that
you are working; she has a young spirit that makes exercise
fun. I am finishing my Bachelor of Science degree in
Kinesiology at the University of Victoria and am excited
to start working with my mom because I know I still
can learn alot more from her!"
- Alysha Ulaszonek, Daughter, 26, Victoria
Sherry's classes are wonderful! We all love her fun
loving, energetic yet professional approach to fitness
and weight training. She is exceptionally qualified
and knowledgeable and varies her class routines to make
each work out unique and interesting. Sherry's non-threatening,
relaxed studio environment provides a perfect atmosphere
for people like me who do not want to join a gym and
are tired of aerobic classes. I started resistance training
after reading about the many benefits for women over
50. I was weak and overweight. After attending Sherry's
group classes, I am stronger, have more energy and tone
and I've lost weight. Every friend I have told about
Sherry has joined her classes, and as of spring 2001,
15 of my friends have become her clients.
- Barb Eleworthy, Vancouver
*I have been coming to Sherry's for 1 1/2 yrs, 3x week.
I love it! Sherry has strengthened my core muscles and
greatly improved my upper body strength. This has really
helped my running. Her classes are loaded with ball
exercises, weights, cardio and FUN! She is extremely
knowledgeable in giving each individual the training
- Patti Scott-Moncrief, medical assistant, 57
I have been to many aerobics classes and worked out
in gyms for many years. Sherry’s classes
are the most fun and targeted classes I have ever experienced.
They are fast paced, (very little down time), and fun.
What I truly love is that her stations are extremely
effective - they isolate the area you are working on
and get to the heart of the matter quickly. I achieved
results that I never believed possible. She also introduced
me to many new exercises, like superman's, that feel
so good you love doing them. Sherry changes her routine
often so it is always fresh. It is also an environment
where you feel very welcomed and comfortable, regardless
of your fitness level.
- Wendy Floyd, Director of Sales and Marketing,
Laurel Point Inn, Victoria
I did my own strength training program at home for 2
years. I felt fit, yet, it was only when I started working
out with One to One Fitness that I started to see real
results, and quickly, within a month. I am now able
to push myself under the guidance of an expert.

" I have been working with Sherry and her One to

her client’s individual needs. Sherry has great
energy and enthusiasm for her profession and it shows.”

I LOVE the classes and I’m seeing results! I look
forward to every session. Workouts are well planned,
fast paced and always different. Intimidated by health
clubs and tired of boot camps, the small class sizes
and personalized attention at a reasonable price works
for me! I want a Body By Sherry.

"Sherry is a superb Personal Trainer. In a group
class she gives ample personal attention, while ensuring
everyone is working hard and having fun too! Sherry's
fitness expertise, combined with her unique teaching
style and wonderful sense of humor, makes her classes
unbeatable. By attending Sherry's classes on a regular

Sherry's workouts are very fun and creative. She has
an incredible amount of energy and is very motivational.
She brought balance back to my body after years of
bad training. I am now pain free thanks to Sherry.
- Simon Pshyr, age 30, yoga teacher, Victoria
Sherry's weight class has been both good for the soul
as well as for the body. There has been laughter and
fun, positive feedback, encouragement and valuable
advise. After 6 months of attending 2x a week and
getting over initial frustrations and fear of failure,
I look forward to each class and will miss Sherry's
instruction, awareness of individual needs and concern
for the correct procedure. My introduction to a multi
faceted free weight program through Sherry has made
a difference to my body; I feel stronger and carry
myself taller. This positive experience prompted me
to further educate myself and become a trainer. I

Both Roxanne and I have received quick results with
Sherry's weight training classes.
We experienced an increase in energy levels, stamina,
physical confidence plus lessened feelings of anxiousness.
We both have lost inches without dieting.
Roxanne and I believe that Sherry is an excellent
role model as she mentors and coaches participants
in teams and provides one on one attention. She knows
every muscle in the body and is extremely knowledgeable
about how the muscles and body works. She teaches
how to maximize one's time in the weight training
classes while preventing injuries when weight lifting.
Sherry is a seasoned group facilitator, highly motivated
and encourages participants "to push through"
the difficult times or resistant times with gentleness,
forthrightness, sincerity and friendliness. Sherry
Sherry's classes are affordable and take place in
a lovely peaceful setting with plenty of flowers in
and around her garden studio where the classes are
held. Both Roxanne and I highly recommend Sherry's
weight lifting classes.

"This is the best gift I have ever given myself
- the gift of fitness. It didn't take long to see
that Sherry is a well-experienced trainer with vast
knowledge of the working of the anatomy and she really
listens and personalizes exercises unique to each
class participant. It's not only a good workout but
is a social event that's lots of fun for young and
old alike. A unique fitness experience that is a refreshing
change from the large fitness clubs that are so impersonal
and intimidating. "

It was a happy accident that I discovered Sherry and
strength training. My husband was interested in specific
help to strengthen the muscles around his knee and
I decided to join him at One to One as something we
could do together. When I started weight training
with Sherry, I was 20lbs overweight, loosing my battle
with an encroaching matronly look and feeling out
of shape even though I did regular aerobic exercise.
Almost five months later, I've trimmed up quite a
bit, am getting my figure back, have regained muscle
tone and new muscle where I never had it before, like
my inner thighs! The most surprising thing for me
is that my balance is amazingly better and for the
first time in my life I simply feel "put together".
When I do other activities like biking or aerobics
I have better stamina and enjoy doing them because
of a new freedom of just having better ability in
them. Thank you Sherry for helping me change my life
and the way I feel about myself. –

I had knee surgery to correct torn cartilage and arthritis,
and even though my knee was improved, I still didn't
have the mobility I had before my injury. I joined
One to One with Sherry to try to get back more mobility
by strengthening the muscles around my knee. I am
very pleased with my results. I no longer consider
wearing the knee brace recommended by my physiotherapist
and I can kneel and squat with ease. The best thing
I've done for myself in a long time.

“I have had serious back pain for the past 3
years, I had worked out with various physio’s
and doctors but it was not until I started training
with Sherry that my pain started to finally subside.
Sherry goes back to basics and really works your entire
body. I always leave feeling great and it is a blessing
my back pain has started to go away.”
