  • Prevent muscle atrophy and cell death.
  • Live in a pain-free body (regardless of our age).
  • Reverse and prevent the physical changes that occur to our bones, muscles and skin as we age.

"Two years ago I left a 20-year marketing career to focus more time on Essentrics. It's been one of the most fulfilling and rewarding decisions I've ever made..."

How Essentrics Helped Me

Learn more about why one of our Master Trainers, Jenny Bertrand, became an Essentrics instructor.

"The first time I ever thought of pursuing Essentrics teacher certification, I immediately tried to dismiss it. Realistically, how could a mom of three young children working in a demanding career, while studying for an MBA, possibly fit it in? Plus, I wasn’t a fitness teacher, so what did I know about leading exercise classes? After finishing my degree, however, the idea to teach Essentrics kept percolating in my mind, and I realized I needed to look into it further. So, I ordered the Level 1 materials and got to work. Working on the certification helped me get a lot more out of the workouts I was already doing with the Essentrics DVDs, so I figured out right away that even if I never actually became a teacher, I was receiving great personal benefit.

To earn my teaching hours, I offered free classes to my co-workers during lunch hour. From the first class, they LOVED how Essentrics made them feel. Even though I still had a lot to learn to teach it well, the pre-choreographed workout was so good that even a new teacher like me could succeed right away. Getting the feedback and seeing the results people were getting, hooked me to teach and learn more about Essentrics and how it works. Plus, I was feeling better than I ever had even though I had always exercised.

Since taking that first step to earn my level 1 certification about four years ago, I have gone on to earn all four levels. Two years ago, I left a 20-year marketing career to focus more time on Essentrics. It’s been one of the most fulfilling and rewarding decisions I’ve ever made. It’s also one of the scariest because it was a big change, but I would absolutely do it again! Every day I get to spend time with people who have decided to take some time to take care of themselves. Every day I get to hear inspiring stories about what Essentrics is doing for people. Every day I get to do something that fills my soul and nurtures my body and mind. I’m so glad I took that first step."

This is my story. I'm 64 years old and have always done aerobic workouts and light weights. November of 2014, I injured my shoulder while shoveling a heavy snowfall from the driveway. At about the same time, I was caring for our grandsons and doing quite a bit of lifting. Over the next nine months, my shoulder just got worse to the point that I couldn't raise my arm over my head and getting dressed was painful.

Then, one evening in August 2015, I was watching PBS and Miranda Esmonde-White was promoting her Classical Stretch DVDs. I had never heard of Classical Stretch before, so I looked it up on the computer and tried doing a few of the programs on her website. I also learned that she had a workout program on PBS at 6am, three times a week, so I started working out with Miranda in the morning. From the very first workout, the range of motion in my shoulder seemed to improve. I was hooked. I ordered the Season 7 Health Series and have been working out with Classical Stretch daily for almost six months now and have recently added Season 10 Strength & Flexibility for more variety.

I am so pleased with Classical Stretch and how Miranda Esmonde-White has helped me to heal my shoulder and improve my level of fitness. People probably get tired of me talking about the benefits of Classical Stretch, but I am 'over the moon' excited about it and wish everyone would give it a try.

Thank you, Miranda for creating such a wonderful program.
