Coaching – Fitness
Monika has a focused personable style that highlights her strong grounding in technique. Her classes are designed well and showcase her anatomical knowledge of progressions and wealth of teaching experience. Private lessons with Monika are goal oriented, pragmatic and fun! Her no-nonsense approach to building strength from the ground up along with a wicked sense of humor makes her one of the most well rounded instructors that I have had the pleasure to work with 🙂

“Authentic is a word tossed around a lot these days…but very few speakers truly are. Monika is that exception. She stands confidently and yet humbly on stage. She is witty and sharp yet not condescending. Monika’s voice is quiet yet captivating. A refreshing and powerful female presence.

Monika is obviously a great photographer who takes pride in the moments that she creates. What is not so obvious, and more importantly in my opinion, is that she enjoys educating people and is a great person. I have had the pleasure of taking a night photography editing course taught by her and have been in attendance for one of her night photography seminars. The passion that she has for the art of photography definitely shows through. In her course, she takes the time to teach. When she helps, she will give you her undivided attention at making sure you succeed in what you are trying to do. If you do not understand something that she presents, she will patiently ensure that what she is trying to convey makes sense to you.
Furthermore, she enjoys sharing information and this is evidenced by her personal blog and other articles that she has published. These are the traits of someone who truly enjoys teaching about their craft.
I can say that in past two years that I have known her, she is a pleasure to be around because she not only remembers people but takes the time to actually talk. If you have an opportunity to learn from her, either by taking a course, listening to her talk, or hiring her as either as an instructor or as a photographer, please do so. You will have no regrets.
