David B.

David lost weight, shed inches, and improved his health all while living a life he loves!

"My health journey started at 340 lbs. Rather than go into the story and details about everything that I tried, diets, exercise, programs, etc.I thought I would share my current chapter with Coach Mindy. From my previous journey I picked up some great healthy habits and a much longer list of what didn’t work and what not to do.  I had come to the realization that I needed to FOCUS and FINE TUNE my nutrition to accomplish my current and future goals of a healthy body weight. This is when I engaged Coach Mindy. 


It has now been 4 short months in directly working with Coach Mindy. We have an accountability call once a week where she reviews MyFitnessPal app and what I have entered every day for my food intake. She checks to see if this is in alignment with the Macros she has set that are unique to me.  She will give me kudos or suggestions on how to improve the following week. This space is a very safe space. She is quite good at making you very comfortable to encourage you of listing everything you consume. It does no good to not track the liquor or the sweets. You track everything! Bottomline, results! You bet! Every day I am satiated, not starving, not hungry, satisfied! No cravings! I currently sit at 285 lbs. I am also at a plateau according to the scale.  However, this journey is much more that the scale. 


I just had my wellness exam and a year later my blood work is excellent, my blood pressure is back to normal (good) levels and my doctor is extremely happy. Yes, I am having to purchase new clothes. While the scale has not been moving the last several weeks, the inches are changing on my body. Definitely less body fat %. After covid we will be able to test to see what the actual number is. I have a long way to go but am excited about the journey and have a high level of confidence in getting there. Get a goal, stick to the goal, share the goal, let Coach Mindy be your accountability partner and stop the noise in your head. LIVE and LOVE life."

Kristi R.

Kristi is loving the variety, flexibility and convenience of The Online Fitness Club!

I’ve been using the Online Fitness Club for several months and it’s great! With my gym being closed as a result of COVID, I needed something that would not only be an accountability partner but provide me with a daily workout routine I could take anywhere. I’ve found the app to be very intuitive with an interface that is easy to use. The how-to videos are fantastic and easy to follow. The variety of exercises make the Online Fitness Club a great choice for anyone who wants to try different exercises—plus, with no gym membership and no equipment required, I have no excuse for not getting in great shape! I don’t get bored with the diverse workouts, and I can even privately message Mindy with questions or concerns.

The Online Fitness Club is the perfect program for busy schedules that don’t allow for gym time, frequent travelers, or for someone just getting started who needs to set smaller goals. I highly recommend it!

Christina M.

Christina feels stronger, fitter and empowered!

The Online Fitness Club has been great for me! Mindy has helped me gain strength in targeted areas and correct muscle imbalance. I’ve gotten stronger, and that success has encouraged me to push myself to do more and harder cardio. 

I love that I get a workout that really addresses my needs and pushes me to do the best I can!

Stephanie S.

Stephanie lost 10 lbs and rediscovered a love of fitness and life again!

"January 2019 was the start of a new approach to a healthier and happier me. Finding Mindy was happenstance for me, but I wish someone had told me about her program sooner! Being a woman in my mid 40's I was experiencing new challenges physically, mentally, and emotionally. I felt lost, discouraged, and weak. This is where Mindy came in. She provided guidance, encouragement, tough love when needed, compassion and relatability. 

During the Healthy Habits Game Plan I discoverd I still have passion for fitness, gained confidence, and learned I don't have to do it alone.

If you need that kind of support...this is the place for you!! The weekly training videos provide useful pro tips, reminders and get you working towards a growth mindset. You’re not stuck, just paused! Go for it! Learn to love yourself again!"

Carrie M.

Carrie discoverd a healthy balance that was rewarding and sustainable!

I was about to pay $500+ to a trendy deprivation diet program, and had already started depriving myself to get a jump on things.  In essence, I was starving myself, had low blood sugar, could barley get up, and was no longer physically able to exercise.  My body literally stopped.  I had worked with Mindy a few years back and lucky for me, our sessions popped into my head, so I called to report what I was doing and could she help me? She  talked to me about the perils of doing harm to my body like this, talked about balance, loving my body, and asked me to listen to what my body was telling me...I felt horrible, I had less than zero energy, I was sad, but was going to champion through to a better me!  What!?  The light started shining through as she coached me over the phone, so I signed up for the month of common sense Mindy nutrition, ate an apple, and that one apple gave my body the nutrients it truly needed, my mood lifted and I went running.  It amazes me what one piece of fruit can give a body, what a well balanced eating plan can offer, so if you're about to spend the big money on the newest trendy diet, turn around and RUN to Mindy Garrett.

Tammy H.

Tammy unlocked her potential, gained valuable insights, and realized her worth!

"Before the Healthy Habits Game Plan I felt tired and wasn't sleeping enough, fat with no control over what I was ate, and sorry for myself, "No one cares, why should I?"

During the Healthy Habits Game Plan I learned it's not a race, it's a journey, I discovered I like working out, I learned I can meal plan and when I do I spend less money, and I discoverd I can be a healthier and happier person.

Now that I have completed the program I feel like I can ask for help, pick healthy foods, and live healthy and happy!"

Eileen V.

Eileen discovered how small steps empower her to create meaningful change!

"Thanks Mindy for helping me shift my mindset and helping me to make small changes to eat healthier and move more. I am starting to see some results and that is encouraging! Baby steps in the right direction!"

Kris N.

Kris discoverd fun, creative and challenging ways to burn fat and build muslce!

“I’ve had the pleasure of training in private sessions with Mindy Garrett of Mind and Body Elite and, I have to say, she is the best personal trainer I’ve ever worked with! This lady really knows her stuff! Before she works with you she provides you with a list of questions to complete about your health history and exercise history. Then she does an intake evaluation to determine your fitness levels, any limitations you might have, and your health goals. Then the fun begins!!

Mindy was always very prepared for each session complete with my favorite music, a great warm-up, and exercises to train all parts of my body in different ways. I learned so much from her! She taught me exercises I’ve never done before and provided me with handouts of exercises I could do at home. I’m not an exercise junkie, in fact, in don’t really like to work out at all. But Mindy made it fun AND challenging at the same time. She pushed me harder than I would have pushed myself and introduced new ways of moving to me. I highly recommend working with Mindy if you want an efficient, quality, cross training type of work-out that’s fun! She rocks!”

Kara N.

Kara lost over 50 lbs and has kept it off for 2 years!

"Mindy does a great job training each individual at their own level. She is encouraging and never boring. She understands nutrition and human nature so she is the perfect coach for someone trying to lose weight and get fit."  

Tom V.

Tom lost 30 lbs, improved his health and is living healtheir and happoier than he ever imagined!

"Four years ago I was walking with a friend up to an observation deck. I quickly became tired, winded and unable to continue. As I walked back down, frustrated, my friend asked me if I was ok. I abruptly replied "I'm a little out of shape in case you haven't noticed". I hadn't seen a doctor in years, but decided to have a physical, and learned that I was overweight with high cholesterol. I tried to lose weight, get in shape, and get healthy but had no idea how. I thought going for a walk once in a while and eating less was enough. It wasn't. And so the frustration led to an apathetic, defeated attitude and even more weight gain over the course of another 2 and a half years. Then I learned that my neighbor is a personal trainer, Mindy Garrett of Mind & Body Elite. I put off seeking her help because I was convinced I could do it alone. I couldn't.

Finally, I broke down and went with my wife, Ashley, for a consultation. Mindy's Jumpstart program was just what we needed. We started with nutrition counseling and fitness training, and quickly learned how easy it is to maintain a healthy diet, which soon became routine and normal. After a month we no longer needed nutrition counseling. The fitness training was challenging, and that's the point. I learned that a leisurely stroll doesn't challenge the body to improve. We learned how to exercise. In the beginning it was frustrating because I was focused only on losing weight. The most important thing I learned from Mindy is that fitness is a total package. There isn't one metric to measure it. It took 3 months to see weight loss, but in those 3 months I was replacing fat with lean muscle, my clothes were fitting better, I had more energy and I stopped having heartburn several times a week. My strength, agility, balance and endurance improved. Then I finally saw the scale move, and once the weight loss started, it continued very quickly. It has been 18 months and 30 pounds since that pivotal first meeting with Mindy. I am now at a healthy weight and cholesterol levels, and in the best shape of my life. It hasn't always been easy, but it has been a lot of fun and by far the most rewarding experience. Thank you Mindy!"

Christiane F.

Christiane got off blood pressure medication and improved her overall health and quality of life!

"I started working in small group sessions with Mindy a year ago and really enjoy the classes.
In addition to the fun environment, and group support, I was able to stop taking the blood pressure medication I have been taking for over 10 years. Another benefit of the workouts is the number of migraines every month diminished significantly.


Thank you Mindy for giving me back my health so I can enjoy my new grandson!"

Crystal B.

Crystal rediscovered the freedom of a healthy, strong body, and has the energy to do the things she loves most!

“My experience with Mind and Body has been nothing but positive. Mindy encourages personal growth while working within my constraints. My physical transformation is apparent to not only myself, but others as well. More importantly, I feel stronger and can keep up with my three kiddos, where before I was either in pain or struggled with endurance. The small group setting allows for the opportunity to have fun while motivating and pushing one another. I truly appreciate Mindy and all she has done to help support a healthier me!”

Karen R.

Karen wanted to empower her daughter with healthy lifestyle tools in a fun and energizing way!

"Mindy has worked with my 10 year-old to help with overall conditioning, functional fitness, and flexibility...she has done an amazing job with my daughter, who now understands the importance of things like balance and proper stretching in maximizing sports performance while preventing injury.  Best of all, she makes fitness fun!!"

Ed B.

Ed found a healthy way to combat work-related stress while feeling encouraged and motivated!

"Mindy’s Small Group Class is always fun, challenging, and good for me. I had gone several years without working out after a couple surgeries and couldn’t find the motivation to get going on a program. I joined Mindy’s Small Group Class about six months ago and have not regretted a single minute of it. She has a way of pushing the class to new levels and at the same time being very supportive. When we are engaged in a particularly hard circuit she encourages us to keep going with short motivational sayings. My job is very stressful and as the time goes by during the workout I can feel the stress evaporating and a sense of peace overcoming me. I feel better than I have in at least three years and look forward class twice a week." 

Kelly B.

Kelly discovered fitness can be fun in Mind + Body Elite's small group fitness classes!

“I am not a person who likes to exercise, but I love working out with Mindy! She is very supportive and challenges me every time. I never know what plans she has for the small group so working out never is boring. I also appreciate her vast knowledge regarding kinesiology, healthy choices for eating, and sense of humor!!"

Brandy B.

Brandy, a busy mom of 2, lost 3 inches off her waist!

"Mindy is an amazing trainer. I never left a session not feeling and knowing that I got an
amazing workout… I am healthier and stronger because of her help. And, my waist is 3
inches smaller thanks to her!"

Theresa B.

Theresa wanted to support her daughter's nutritional needs to best support her athletic performance and recovery!

"We have used Mindy solely for nutritional needs. Having a high school crew team member, who works out 3+ hours, five days per week, we needed to make sure her nutrition needs and goals are being met. Mindy made the personalized program informational and fun. My daughter said "this is going to be easy" and enjoys figuring out the food combos!  Thank you Mindy!"

Laura L.

Laura empowered her son with the tools for a long and healthy life!

“Mindy from Mind+Body Elite is an amazing motivator. She is creative and supportive! I have been wanting to improve our at home diet – but didn’t really know how to start and was completely overwhelmed by the prospect. She totally transformed how our family eats, which has been great for all of us. In addition, she motivated our “avid indoorsman” to get fit (and ask for whole wheat substitutes and “more green in his smoothies”!). He loves their workouts and is always in a great mood following. Kudos to Mindy and Mind & Body Elite!”

Hodan B.

Hodan lost weight and feels amazing from the inside out!

"I've been training with Mindy for about 2 months now. I can honestly say that Mindy is one of the most motivating, charismatic and genuinely nice people I've ever met. You can see and feel how much she loves what she does. Mindy has been helping me get back into shape after gaining 15+lbs over the course of a year and half. I've lost about 8lbs in about a month. I have never felt better in my life, and Mindy not only keeps you motivated through your workout, which is tough, but throughout the week. Mindy is there reminding you to stay focused, eat right, drink water and get on with your daily exercise. With that said, even with all of Mindy's talent, abundant knowledge on targeted exercises, ability to keep the workouts fun, interesting and difficult, getting fit and staying fit is not a piece of cake. Actually you need to stay off cake and instead put in the required work and keep focus on your goals. If you are willing to put in that effort, Mindy WILL make sure you achieve them. You won't be sorry. Okay, maybe a little bit the day after she works your glutes really hard, but hey it's totally worth it!"

Abby G.

Abby found a fun & manageable way to get back on track.

"I first came to Mindy for personal training and her Jumpstart program — I had been out of a fitness routine for some time and getting back on track seemed daunting. Mindy broke it down into something fun and manageable. Her positive and can-do attitude is great and she’ll never let you sell yourself short (or grab the lighter weights, when she knows you are capable and can do more :) A big thank you to her for keeping me on track and helping me continue to reach my goals!"

Sandy C.

Sandy is enjoying the freedom of pain free movement thanks to her private training sessions with Mindy!

“One of the biggest benefits of my time training with Mindy was getting rid of low back pain. Before we started our workout regime I would have pain usually about 3x per week. I know for a fact that a good work out routine can do wonders!!”
