I enjoyed working with Sheri because of her warm, encouraging personality. I wanted to do half of the Camino de Santiago and knew it would be a stretch physically. I love to walk but had never been what you would call a hiker. I didn’t have a lot of upper body strength and wasn’t sure how I would do carrying all of my belongings on my back. I hoped not to use the services that carry backpacks for pilgrims unless absolutely necessary. After meeting Sheri at a local Camino meeting I was impressed with her positive attitude and curious about her services. I signed up after her complimentary consultation and committed to the twelve-week training program. It was the best thing I did to prepare myself. Sheri gradually helped me improve my balance, core strength and legs in particular. I learned which side of my body was compensating for the other due to past minor injuries and was able to strengthen what needed the most work. Sheri worked with my schedule to add weight and increase distance of hikes in preparation for the Camino. I would have added weight in too aggressive a fashion if she hadn’t made the suggestions she did. My husband benefited as well because we did most of our training walk/hikes together. We weren’t sure if we were truly prepared as we headed out from St Jean…but found that we were! I carried my pack the whole time and didn’t have any physical issues. I would highly recommend working with Sheri. I believe she will help you achieve your goal whatever it may be!
