Client Testimonials


  • “As a seasoned triathlete, I am always looking for that edge to lower my times. From buying new equipment, multiple training plans and even changing my diet. I wasn’t seeing the results I was looking for. It wasn’t until I had a personal training experience with Ali at Never Give Up, that I knew this was something special. Her energy, enthusiasm and passion she shows is unmatched by other trainers. Her significant triathlon background was crucial. She knew what it took to take my training to the next level. Together we developed training goals and with the one-on-one training sessions, Ali was able to focus on my weaknesses to help me to lower my times and increase my overall strength. I cannot thank her enough for the results I have seen!”

  • “I’ve been working individually with Ali and attending to her Spin classes for over a year now. As a client, I couldn’t be more pleased with my experience. On a professional level, Ali’s extensive field experience (both as a personal trainer and as a professional athlete) combined with her educational background (Master’s in Education) makes her an excellent trainer choice for clients looking for a PT/fitness instructor at any fitness level. Her educational background has increased her sensitivity to working successfully with individual learning styles while her experience in fitness world has made her highly skilled at conducting classes/sessions, and developing personalized fitness and nutrition programs to address specific needs. “

  • “The trainers at N.G.U. have proven to be the most reliable and hardest working trainersI know! They always puts the clients and needs first and are all very easy to work with and are always enthusiastic and energetic. it is clear that the owner, and her staff, aren't happy unless her clients are happy!”

  • “Ali spends time listening carefully to her clients & adjusts her programs according to their daily life activities, goals & needs. Ali would never make you feel inadequate or incompetent, only provide the appropriate amount of discipline & necessary to keeping sessions productive & challenging. Perhaps what makes Ali so much better than other trainers is a combination of her energetic personality & adaptable training style. Above all, she’s a highly gifted motivator, personable & dependable. Personally, I’ve never had more fun sweating, been more motivated to maintain a healthy lifestyle, or seen such positive results physically, than I have with Ali Cook by my side. She’s a natural & certified pro and I’ll continue to recommend her without hesitation.”
