I have been working with Jeff for four years and wanted to post an updated testimonial to both thank and recommend Jeff as a personal trainer. My recent Bone Density Scan showed marked improvement on both T-Scores and I attribute that to the individualized training that Jeff provides through his expertise and knowledge. I feel so much stronger and know that it has made a positive impact on my daily life. activities.

As a middle school teacher, tai chi has helped me in many ways. Tai chi works the whole body using slow, fluid moves. Tai chi has helped me to regain and maintain my focus, patience, strength, flexibility, and balance. Jeff and Kim are instructors that take the time one-on-one as well as with groups to work with the students. Recently I had surgery for a torn rotator cuff from an injury. Before surgery, I did some tai chi in the waiting room since I was the only one, and the large window faced trees. Before IV/anaesthesia, my heart rate was 52, lungs at 100 per cent, BP 117/72, everything was perfect; even the nurse tried the monitor on herself to make sure it was working! Now I will be using tai chi to slowly work my arms back to excellence. Whatever your ability, Jeff says to just try the tai chi moves the best you can - you will see a remarkable difference.

As a professional in the stressful field of emergency services, I can say that making the decision to try Tai Chi Qigong as a stress relief outlet was not one made without reservations... Jeff & Kim provide excellent instruction in a welcoming and warm environment which fosters a genuine desire amoung skeptical students to continue their practice outside of class... Not an easy feat in today's society. Their consummate professionalism and never ending pateince is a rare gem which I would recommend to anyone looking to enter into the AMAZING art of Tai Chi. I look forward to continuing under their instruction for the indefinite future... Worth triple the price even if it was half the level of service, I am sure that this passion translates to all other areas of the business as well...

I was in a severe car accident in 2001. As a result I suffered from muscle and nerve damage in my legs and back, limited range of motion, plus chronic headaches and constant leg muscle cramps. The slow movements of Tai Chi have made a huge difference, within months I noticed the results. I have regained about 80% of range of motion, no longer have leg cramps or headaches. I even have feeling back in my right knee which had been numb from the accident. Thank you Jeff and Kim.

My name is Christine and I participated in the Tai Chi in the park last summer. Since then I have shared with everyone how peaceful the hour is, even with traffic around you and people watching. You find serenity and Kim and Jeff make you feel supported no matter what your level or ability is. I can not thank them enough for supporting Wendy's Place and if you have not tried Tai Chi yet, what are you waiting for?

I started working out with Jeff a few months ago based off of a referral. It was evident right away that Jeff truly knows his craft. He has a whole arsenal of exercises he uses to help you work on what you need to and is extremely focused on ensuring you use the right technique to avoid injury. Couple that with his knowledge of the body and you can feel absolutely confident your working with someone that will help you get the right results, the right way. I highly recommend Jeff.

I received a gift certificate for some personal training sessions with Jeff as a Christmas gift from my daughter. She does not live in the area and had done her research in her search.I am five years out from total hip replacement surgery, but more recently was diagnosed with serious osteoporosis in my back. Regular weight bearing exercise was recommended and my daughter knew me well!! Motivated by her gift,I started working with Jeff last December and quickly came to feel and appreciate the benefits. In a follow-up scan my bone density has improved and that is a testament to Jeff's individualized training sessions. He is an excellent personal trainer, and a teacher as well, as he explains the what and why of the work-out so that in understanding the process I am able to become more focused and stronger. I am standing taller and people are taking notice! I highly recommend Jeff's expertise and ability as a personal trainer.

An area fitness center owner enthusiastically recommended Jeff to me as a personal trainer. The endorsement was well founded. Jeff employs his knowledge and expertise in multiple health and exercise disciplines to create a functional, holistic workout regimen. Successive sessions build on preceding ones to maximize effect and gains.

For me, the results of his program, guidance, and direction have achieved results far beyond my expectations in the three months I have engaged his services, and I am very happy to be able to recommend him to anyone seeking a personal trainer. He does not disappoint.

Hey Jeff,
Today was my second day of practice and I thought I would drop you a line. The other runners and the coach are nice, today we did a 4 mile run, mostly up hill. I didn't stop to take a break while going up. Some of the older kids invited me to go for an extra half mile or so to the top of the hill. I was the first to be back out of the group. I just wanted to say thank you so much for giving me a champion attitude. I couldn't have done it without you. P.S. my calves and quads burn like we had a work out session.

When I began training with Jeff I knew it would be good for me, but I didn't know that it would change my life. From the first session, Jeff worked with me on everything from weight loss goals to cardio to weight training to posture. Since we started, I have lost over 30 pounds. I can't remember the last time I felt this good. My weight loss success is all due to Jeff who continues to encourage and inspire me today. I would recommend Jeff to anyone who wants to improve their health and quality of their life. Thank you Jeff.

I attended a CPR-AED-First Aid training at the school I work at in early June. Kim, our instructor, was fantastic. She gave realistic scenarios and good advice on how and when to give CPR and First Aid. She made the long class worthwhile and I am happy that I attended. I hope I never have to use my training but I feel that I would be well prepared.

The 4 hour first aid/CPR/AED class did not even feel that long. I easily could of kept going listening and learning from Kim. Kim's delivery of teaching and explaining many vital situations helped me feel engaged in the class and easily absorb the important information. I felt very comfortable from beginning to end and would highly recommend taking the class with Kim. I appreciated her time with me and her kindness. Thank you Quiet Korner Health & Wellness!

I had to be CPR certified for work, I took a class with Kim and I was amazed how well she delivered the information. I feel more confident if I had to react to an emergency. The class was very well taught, hands on and Kim was terrific. All classes should be this interesting.

Jane and Joan are absolutely correct about Jeff. After hip replacement surgery at the end of September and routine physical therapy, I began working with Jeff on flexibility, endurance, balance, and strength. All improved significantly under Jeff’s expert guidance and gentle yet firm encouragement, and I returned to work in January.
Unfortunately, our sessions were interrupted when, like so many others this winter, I fell and broke my arm. However, as soon as the orthopedist clears me, I will resume my sessions with Jeff, first to reverse the regression I’ve noticed, and then to work my way back to full use of all of my limbs.
Jeff’s care and concern have extended to keeping in touch and encouraging me through this unexpected setback. Clearly, Jeff Boccacio is a professional who is exceptionally dedicated to the health and well-being of his clients.

In July of 2013 I had a total hip replacement preformed by Dr. Joyce. From there I went on to work in unison with my Physical Therapist and my Personal Trainer; Jeff Boccacio. I would like to thank Jeff from Quiet Korner for all the encouragement and motivation and his persuasive way of keeping me moving and focused so that I could remain pain free and walk correctly again. The work we did in the pool at the Southbridge Conference Center has truly expedited my rehab outcome. I can happily report that I will be going back to work in September full time, pain free, better balance, stronger and with a clearer understanding of my health and wellness. I strongly recommend Quiet Korner services to anyone!! Thanks again!

After having a total knee replacement, I progressed well in rehab but once that ended, I regressed. Once I started working with Jeff as my personal trainer, he made an individualized program for me with the goals of improving my balance, flexibility and strength. I would never have made so much progress on my own. I recommend Jeff very highly for anyone looking for a personal trainer after surgery or for specialized issues. Jeff is structured, yet flexible. His enthusiasm is inspiring.
