    I trained with Victoria Dosen for about two years.  I found her to be very knowledgeable, interested and experienced.  She helped me tremendously by improving my strength and flexibility.  She always listened to me when I expressed any limitations, etc.  She is also very patient!  I would recommend her to anyone!

    I’ve really enjoyed working out with Victoria. She makes the workouts both fun and challenging. The workouts are varied so you don’t get bored and they are tailored to fit your needs. I would highly recommend Victoria as your Personal Trainer.

    I first met Victoria when my husband finally convinced me to try CrossFit. I was certainly intimidated, but was met with kindness and caring upon first being introduced to Victoria. Her calm demeanor, coupled with a genuine desire to see everyone succeed was all it took for me to put my trust in this pint sized pixie. (Who, by the way, was the toughest thing I’d seen since baling hay with my dad as a kid) Victoria only asks that you try, and from there, she can help shape you, your goals, and desires. She’s not only interested in how you’re feeling, how you’re performing, and what you’re putting in your body as fuel, but also genuinely interested in YOU. Your life, your mental and physical well being. You don’t get that everywhere!  All this aside, she is thoroughly adept (and qualified) to give you some of the best instruction, motivation, and even an arse kicking if you need it!  I’ve seen plenty of trainers who have an air about them as they count the minutes…not Victoria. She’s got an incredible eye that can see where your flaws are, and explain exactly what you need to try to do to fix it!  I’m so glad I left my husband talk me into trying CrossFit, I’ve made a great friend in the process.

    Victoria will work hard to improve your total fitness!  Her extensive knowledge and experience with both exercise and diet allow her to give you a truly tailored experience.  While she doesn’t push a specific diet (no forcing you to go paleo, or vegan, etc), she works within your dietary habits and beliefs to encourage better health.  And, of course, her workouts are custom-built to what you need and helping you reach your goals, whether it be a lifting goal, endurance goal, or an overall fitness goal (she can even provide travel workouts when necessary).  Even if you have an injury (or are just having a bad day), Vicki is adept at expertly adapting a workout to meet the situation.  Let VixiFit help you meet your goals…. You will be glad you did!

    Victoria was the first personal trainer that I ever came to.  I wasn’t sure what to expect and never really thought I needed one. Victoria’s programming was amazing! Every week she challenged me with different workouts that were fun and difficult.  I immediately noticed that I was becoming stronger and was building more self-confidence, not to mention muscle.  I’ve had numerous knee surgeries, due to a reoccurring ACL injury, and Vicki always made sure to modify exercises so that I didn’t reinjure myself, but she still pushed me so that I could build strength back.  I’ve been in many gyms and have seen many trainers, both good and bad.  I consider Victoria to be a superior programmer and her knowledge and dedication to fitness speaks for itself when you look at her. Victoria trained me in a time in my life where I needed to get that drive and passion back and without her helping me, I don’t think I would be where I am now.  It was more than achieving a fitness goal, she guided me back to happiness.
