To Whom It May Concern,
I'm a Former U.S. Marine, and have been physically active for many years now, over 3 decades worth of physical training. I've read every health and fitness publication there is, and have acquired an extensive knowledge of training techniques and dieting plans, as well as trained with some of the best athletes in fitness the world has to offer, yet after having met Latia and engaging in the techniques that she recommended to me, I have come to realize that there's nothing out there that compares.
Latia's knowledge is incredible. Her training and dieting techniques have given my the edge I've been looking for, taking my physical potential to the next level of conditioning that I could not receive anywhere else. She was able to make adjustments in my diet which allowed me to lose unwanted bodyfat as well as show me how to carve and sculpt my physique to my satisfaction, and at 45 years of age I find myself looking and feeling better than ever before.
After seeing the results first hand, of which came rather quickly (3 weeks), I can honestly say that anyone can achieve these same results as well. Should they stick to Latia's program without deviation, they would end up extremely gratified. Latia is a great motivator and mentor, always positive and helpful beyond reproach. She is now the one and only of whom I would seek guidance from when it comes to my health and wellness, and I'm sure that once other's decide to take her on, they would most certainly feel the same.
I can't stress enough about how beneficial it would be to those that wish to learn from Latia, not just in fitness and wellness but a wide variety of traits as well. Don't just take my word for it, find out for yourself...you will be very happy you did!
Regards and Good Health,

To Whom It May Concern,
I have had the honor of training with Ms. Latia Del Riverio since October of 2008. I have admired and respected her success in her career for many years and to be able to finally work with as my Health and Fitness Trainer was a dream come true for me. She has not only helped me to improve my external physical appearance, but she has also helped me to improve my inner self-confidence, which I will always cherish from her and is one of the many great qualities that separate Latia from any other trainer. Latia has become my mentor, life coach and a wonderful life-long friend, who has taught me such valuable skills and brought out the best of my abilities to accomplish things I had never dreamed I could ever do. She exudes such positive and motivating energy, and every moment I train with her is truly an honor and very inspiring. She possess such strong leadership skills, that will make you believe that nothing is impossible and challenges you to keep pushing yourself. She is one of the most hardest working, determined, sincere, caring, and intelligent people I have ever met in my life. She is always punctual, reliable and very well prepared for every training session with me, and will always give me 110% she can guide me to achieve all my health and fitness goals. I remember her encouraging me to find a picture in a fitness magazine of a woman's body I dreamed of looking like one day. Now, several months later I look at myself every day in the mirror like I am looking at a new woman with such happiness and confidence of how I look and feel about myself... I have never felt so confident in my appearance and I owe it all to Latia! She is truly a person with a heart of gold and I strongly feel that no one can even come to matching her in the industry! She is truly the best in every way!

I was sick of my weight fluctuating up and down. After years of struggling and going up to a size 12 waist I had enough. I sought out Latia through a previous clients of hers because I knew I was ready to get serious. I started with Latia in August 2005 for a 12 week program(Level 1) and I dropped 25lbs. and was a size 8 waist line. That was my goal when I first began, but once I was there I wanted more. I quickly learned that Latia's program was like no other, it was not just a "One Size Fits All" program like the ones that I have tried before. Now I am into October 2006 on my 5th level and am at a size 4 waist line!!! Not only did I reach the goals I set, I've surpassed them and am now on my way to getting a Fitness Training Certificate myself so that I can work alongside Latia as a trainer also. It hasn't been easy though. I have had to change my lifestyle to get to where I am today. It's been hard, harder than I thought... and sometimes when I thought it couldn't get any harder... IT DID! The harder I worked though, the better the results. Latia's training and program is truly life altering. I will never stop working out again in my lifetime. What fascinates me the most is how she personalizes each person's program to cater to their body. She took the time out to see where I needed more work and where I needed less. And it shows. Since I have been traingin with her I have passed her 4 other clients based on my results who have and are still succeeding just as well as I have. Latia not only trained me, she taught me what I am doing and why I am doing it, giving me the confidence to do it alone - without any help. She has challenged me in such a way that I now challenge myself. I now know how capable I am of doing many things that I never knew I could. I am not only happy with my body and my life, I am proud of what I've achieved - and that is all thank to my life long friend Latia. I am giving Latia the highest recommendation I can possibly give.
To: All those women who want to loose weight get in shape and feel great!
3 and a half years ago I returned from a 3-week holiday in Italy. To my dismay, I accumulated 180lbs of body weight and become the heaviest that I had ever been. Upon returning home, I began researching personal trainers. My new goal was not only to loose weight, but to look great and feel great during the process.
Latia was highly recommended to me by a friend who ad lost over 60lbs and became almost unrecognizable. After meeting Latia, I was convinced that she was the right trainer for me. I could sense a high level of commitment, compassion for my needs and a caring spirit to do all that she could to help me meet my goal.
The result? A wonderful friendship, numerous inches lost and a whoopin 46lbs gone from my 5;10" frame. I have gone from a size 14 to a size 6 with my determination and ongoing coaching from Latia. I work out on a regular basis and find it encoutaging seeing Latia continuing to help more women reach their goals.
A personal trainer who cares enough to become a personal friend and advocate......is well worth your time!
Good luck Ladies!!

To Whom It May Concern,
This letter is in regards to Latia Del Riviero. I have known Latia for approximately 1 year, and have been a client of hers for up to 6 months now.
In this time, Latia has proven herslf to be an incredibly strong individual, with a continuing positive attitude, and an absolute joy to be around. Her energy and optimism is incomparable to anyone I have ever known.
As a personal trainer, she gives her clients the motivation needed to strive for only the best, and never fails to make each and everyone of the people around her a priority in her life.
Latia is a very hard working individual, with a drive to always succeed. I believe that no matter what her goals in life may be, she will always accomplish them.
I wish Latia only the best on all her future endeavors.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact myself at anytime.
I would like to take this opportunity to write a letter of recommendation for Latia.
I first heard about Latia, when a friend of mine was training with her to loose some weight and get back into great shape. Not only did she shed all of the weight she wanted, she looked absolutely amazing!!! Her body was so sculpted and toned, I was shocked that a trainer could actually make that much of a difference because I have seen people work out with other trainers before and never had I see results like Latia got out of her clients.
I was sold on a personal trainer and I wanted to train Latia.
I signed up with Latia at the end of Aprial of this year and I am so excited about the great results that I am starting to see (and it has only been 6 weeks!!) Her program is tough but well worth the pain. She makes the workouts challenging but fun and they really keep me interested - every week, we are changing the routine and I am not bored. I enjoy going to the gym now because of her and what she has taught me. Latia is very well-organized and is extremely knowledgeable about food, the equipment, weight routines and what exercises are good for which muscles.
Over the past six weeks, I have really gotten to know her and I must say that she is one of the most genuine, thoughtful and positive people I have ever met. She keeps you motivated during the tough times and really knows when to push you and when to ease off. She even calls me, asking how I am doing and if I need anything - how many other trainers would do that?
I would highly recommend Latia to other people (I already do this everyday!!!) who want to work out with a trainer but with one that can actually get you what you want but also, with one cares about you as a human being.
Please feel free to contact me at the above listed number if you have any questions or would like to talk further about my recommendation for Latia.
To Whom It May Concern,
I Had 4 months to lose weight in order to fit into my wedding gown. My husband, an avid fitness buff, hired Latia to train me, after exhausting all other ways of losing the weight. I virtually tired every fitness trend to weight loss centers (Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, Weight loss clinic) You name it I've done it. Nothing worked like Latia's program and I found her weight training program to be invaluable. It's a miracle from God. I swear by it. She's helped not only to lose all the weight, but her training helped me to make a healthier life style change. I was alwys on a constant battle with stress, having 4 differentjobs (Dental Technician, Make-up Artist/film, Hair, and Esthetician) trying to find time for myself was impossible.
Having been trained by Latia has made a vast improvement in my health. It's also taught me patience and discipline with lasting changes. Integrating healthy habits to my daily schedule has become second nature to me now. Her seamless program combined with my heard work and dedication has made a major impact in my life.
Latia certainly has been a great inspiration. I believe that Latia is a trainer that tryly cares for her clients. Her dedication, drive, focus, and faith show themselves. All the money I've spent on the training was worth every penny and the results were Priceless. I'd have no problem recommending Latia to anyone who would like to make a Lifestyle change, as it has in mine.

Everytime I thought that things couldn't get worse, they did. When it comes to loosing weight and getting into shape, I've struggled most of my life. The typical roller coaster. After two kids, things got worse than ever. Then my supportive husband found Latia.
The minute we began to speak over the phone one night, the weight began to lift off my shoulders. We spoke for about two hours bout habits, goals, and everything else. I felt connected to this person whom I had never met before. A few days later we started working together on a lifestyle switch. Latia understood me lie no one else could. She is motivating, to a contagious level sometimes. Today, after loosing some 60 pounds, I still feel that something is missing when I don't make it to the gym. I have learned about health and fitness from Latia in six months more than I have learned in my whole life.
I knew what I wanted, Latia put me on the path, and now I'm in charge of my life - once again.
If anyone should recieve a medal of achievement, it is not her trainees for achieving what they never thought they could, but Latia for making them believe that they can, and for showing them how to get there.
I am a new person today because of Latia. Im proud to be her trainee, and her friend. My kids now call her Auntie.
I would be glad to act as a personal reference, in person for Latia, anytime.

Absolutely immaculate! Latia is beyond what a personal trainer usually is. She is a life and fitness coach and partner. Latia molds you into the shape that you want to be in, working on you from the inside out. Her personal knowledge and success in the fitness arena are reflected into routines that only a master trainer can put together. Because of her background as a psychologist, and because she has achieved the highest levels of excellence in fitness, she is in a unique position to weave highly complex components of total fitness and healthy lifestyle into highly effective programs for her trainees.
After speaking to three or four potential personal trainers for my wife Elizabeth, I met Latia. In an instant her knowledge comes through. Her commitment and devotion to her practice take her right away to the heart of her next trainee. She looks and lives the part, and she understands what is going on deep inside the mind, and the body. She creates a following based on experience, and a unique skill set. She also spends the time it takes to ensure that her trainees abopt life-changing routines and thinking. She does not go by the clock. Latia is a true example for personal trainers to follow.
Words are good, but by themselves not enough to convince. Results speak for themselves. Latia has helped my wife achieve in three months what she had been trying to accomplish for 9 whole years!
I highly recommend Latia and wish her the best in her endeavours. She is now a friend, and has a special place in our home and in our hearts.
To Whom it May Concern:
I am fifty-year-old-women, a confirmed couch potato, who has always struggled to keep my weight down. The thought of being fat and fifty was depressing me.
I had tried everything from fad diets, pills, expensive diet programs, ab machines, running, ridding a bike to work but nothing seemed to get that stubborn weight off. In fact I was getting heavier!!!
My daughter had been going to Latia and did very well on The Program, so even though I hated the gym and thought it boring, I decided I had to do something about my weight (at 199 pounds and 5'5" I looked horrid).
Thanks to Latia, I have lost 40 pounds (despite an accident that broke my pelvis and had me off work for 7 months). I feel and look (so I'm told) 10 years younger, have more energy, feel better about myself, I am stronger, and my cellulite and varicose veins are gone.
It has been lots of hard work and determination, but with Latia's program and diet, her encouragement and patience I've come this far and I'm confident that I'll get to my goal weight and stay there. The gym is fun now and I've fully recovered from my accident, and have found a new way of life.
Thank you Latia, you've given me my life back and a new motto "Fit and Fifty"
Dear Ms. Del Riviero,
Just a note to comment you for the encouragement, enthusiasm, and professionalism you have shown in training Maria, Heather and Marilyn. A thank you to Maria for being the first to recognize what professional development can accomplish.
Today, Marilyn proudly brought home her certificate of completion for her Level 1 Training. I realize how frustrating it's been for Marilyn, she has tried diets and straight running in the past. Your program is not only successful, but offers overall health and self esteem benefits at the sametime. I'm convinced that if you work hard to accomplish a difficult task (one that you may not accomplish without professional assistance) you will feel better about yourself, whatever they may be.
I know you do not do this to get rich, but regardless, the money is well spent. In order to motivate, and encourage others you have to be a true believer yourself, and you have certainly proven that over time.
My name is Jezebel Erding and I have had the privelidge + pleasure of training under the professional guidance of Latia Del Riviero for almost 3 years. From the very first day that I began my training with Latia, I sensed that my relationship with her would be life changing if I would only follow her highly qualified leadership, and life changing it was indeed!
It didn't take long before I began reaping the "oh so wonderful" benefits of Latia's professional knowledge + experties! Immediately my body fat started dropping and my energy level started to soar as I learned about how certain foods affect my body, as well as how to specifically tone + stengthen areas of my body that were important to me.
Thank's to Latia's coaching + support, I have lost 32lbs, revealing the lean, strong me that I would have never discovered if it weren't for her.
Latia is more than a personal trainer, she is also a friend. A friend who is there to guide you + wants you to succeed + achieve your goals!!
Thank you Latia!!!

I have had the pleasure of treating Ms. Latia Lapre for the past three years, along with many of her clients. She proves to be well disciplined and highly qualified as a personal trainer. I also declare my knowledge of her professional status as an I.F.B.B. Pro since 1991 when she won Ms. Canada. I have no reservations in referring Ms. Lapre as a personal trainer. She is well spoken of by her clients and by me.
