I have been working with Chiho since late Fall 2013...with a bit of a bump in the road which halted our workouts for about 7 months. Since working out with Chiho regularly again I have seen amazing positive changes to my health and appearance. I would definitely say that I am in the best shape of my life. Chiho has motivated me to push myself harder and achieve amazing results. I have worked out with a few personal trainers over the past 10 to 15 years and none of them were able to help me achieve the results that Chiho has. As others have mentioned, Chiho is extremely intuitive...she is extremely knowledgeable and just seems to know exactly what your body needs and she genuinely cares about each of her clients. I recommend her to people without hesitation.

Chihoko Harrison has a unique and very effective approach to rehabilitation. I've had amazing results in a very short period of time using the stretching and exercise techniques she prescribed. I highly recommend Chihoko as she is one of the most knowledgeable, professional and thorough fitness experts I've ever had the pleasure of working with.

I arrived at Chiho's two and a half months ago as an out of shape, pain riddled, physically and emotionally exhausted 58 year old. I knew I had officially entered old age when I was unable to put on my underwear without sitting down. I had no balance and was in constant pain from
sciatica and poor posture. I had a Eureka moment yesterday when I was able to put on my tights while balancing on one leg. I had been to many gyms over the years and always ended up in more pain and in worse shape than before I started. Chiho knew exactly what I needed to become stronger and I have never felt any pain whatsoever after a session with her.
I unreservedly recommend Chiho to anyone who wants to improve their fitness level, regardless of what level they are at. Please do yourself and your health a tremendous favour by trying Chiho.... you will also consider her to a be a Fitness Goddess.

I am 68 years young and Have had private sessions with Chiho Harrison for six months I found the manipulation and exercise routine that we did together , and that I did at home , were very helpful in strengthening my core and stretching my tendons and ligaments all over my body. I would strongly recommend her as a teacher and therapist.
Chiho is an excellent, well rounded fitness trainer. She is extremely knowledgeable in all areas of fitness and is continually learning new skills to enhance her abilities as a trainer.
She is a terrific person and I look forward to training with her every week. She continually challenges my body and yet is intuitive with what my body needs at the time.
I have recommend her to many of my friends who also now see her and rave about her workouts. Thanks Chiho!

Chiho, not sure how to put in words how much I appreciate your stretch and core program.
I enjoy every minute of the exercises as you put us through our paces and just over extend our abilities to get the best possible results.
Your classes would be excellent for a novice or experienced exerciser. You adjust your classes to fit the need of the client. Whether it is a one on one class or a class of 4 you adjust each one of us to our level. I think about my posture more and work on my balance each day. This is such a wonderful complement to my visits to the gym. For me as a senior this class works on everything I need to keep me mobile as long as possible. Love coming to your class and feeling fulfilled and gives me incentive to go the gym to continue what you started.
I love coming to Chiho's class as it is the perfect environment for a hard of hearing person. Small class, quiet music and an instructor who can relate to each persons level of fitness. I feel very comfortable in her class as I know Chiho is knowledgeable in her field. In a small class she can work more on a one to one basis and is aware of any issues a person may have.
You are the best!!
Chiho is so gifted and amazing at the work she does. She is intuitive, precise, supportive and really knowledgeable with what my body needed! After just a few lessons with her, even my yoga friends noticed the significant improvement with my posture. Thanks Chiho, you rock!
I was looking for a new toning and weight loss program as I had reached a plateau with my current exercise routines. I was skeptical at first as I had tried several different trend workouts in the past. I was so surprised when the weight started to come off and even more surprised when I could see the inches coming off especially through my torso. I have more strength, stamina and endurance and feel great! Everything I hoped to achieve was realized and within the necessary time frame.
Chiho is very motivational. She knows just how much to push you in order to assist in achieving your goals. She provides a wide variety of workout routines, not just the Mastermoves Disc, which keeps things varied and interesting. She will provide workouts to suit your current fitness level. With a flexible schedule and positive attitude it made getting together with Chiho fun and enjoyable. I would recommend Chiho and the Mastermoves program to anyone who would like core training and overall body conditioning.

I've had a few health challenge over the years. I gained a lot of weight, hips and back pain limited activities. Going to gym or exercise class was frustrating and painful. Since training with Chiho, I am in a lot less pain, have greater ease and range of motion.

I’ve had the privilege of working out with and the results have been amazing. I’ve lost 38 lbs without changing my diet. I’m wearing jeans for the first time in 17 years. The best part, I’m suffering with significant back disc issue that requires surgery. After working out with Chiho, the pain has become more manageable. She is patient, understanding and creative in her work out methods. I also have my daughter working out with Chiho. Since they have been together I have witnessed improved muscle tone, flexibility and overall body shape improvement. I highly recommend Chiho for anyone who is looking for quick and lasting results.

I had the pleasure of meeting Chiho at the West Coast Women's Show in Abbotsford, BC. Immediately, I signed up for a free one hour session with the purchase of The Mastermoves Core Training System. During that first session in October 2010, I discovered that she is a passionate and extremely knowledgeable instructor. Since then I have continued my training with Chiho 2x week.
I love my workout sessions with Chiho, and she continues to encourage and inspire me to stay in shape and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I always feel positive and refreshed when I'm finished one of our sessions. My goal was to train my core muscles and Chiho continues to challenge me and strengthen my core in a variety of ways that help me maintain balance, flexibility and relaxation. She has also helped me work out a fitness plan I can follow and enjoy from home on the days I'm not with her. Chiho is an exceptional and experienced instructor who I am so grateful to know and have as my personal trainer. "Chiho is Awesome!"

Before I met Chiho, I was discouraged about being overweight and out-of-shape. I'd tried to get fit so many times, and in so many ways, that I was afraid to try, and fail, yet again. But from the moment I met Chiho I felt renewed hope. She is a wonderful role-model for me. She radiates health and she's kind and friendly; not the least bit intimidating! When we work out together she is encouraging, and happy for my successes. The expertise she has gained through being an athlete and P.E. instructor is evident in the attention she pays to my technique, ensuring I achieve the most possible from my efforts. The simple equipment and exercises - exercises which feel good for my body - encourage me to keep up my practice at home. I am very grateful for the opportunity I now have to regain health and vitality back into my life!

I was impressed with Chihoko’s flexibility, core strength and lean muscles. I have exercised extensively for the last 20 years but wanted to concentrate on improving my core and flexibility. I found working with Master Moves is fun, easy and portable. My routine is to start my day with stretches and continue with either the upper body or lower body routine. I love the fact that I can do this in my own home. I am still committed to my running program and hiking in the summer. I would recommend Master Moves to anyone, no matter what their fitness level or situation. It represents a variant of physical fitness that fits into my lifestyle. My goal is to develop greater core strength and stability through Mastermoves.

I would like to first thank you for such a great system. I really enjoy the mastermoves program. Chiho has brought fitness back into my daily routine. I will be the first to admit that I’m a lazy person. But when I first started Mastermoves, Chiho helped me to learn at my own pace. She saw that I needed a gentle “Shove” and was able to help me achieve, not only a healthier figure but much better posture. Chiho was also able to work with my schedule and even when last minute changes were needed. I have recommended mastermoves not only to my friends but my family as well. I have finally found a friend that not only makes time to help me achieve my “mirror happy” but knows how to push the drive back into me when laziness sneaks back in. After working with Chiho, feel refreshed, tired but ready to battle my day with confidence. I feel that her showing me mastermoves was just the beginning. Thank you.
I really enjoyed my core training sessions with Chiho. I look forward to each visit, for the first time I actually completed a program. Over the years I have joined many gym's and after a few visits never went back, so this has been a real accomplishment for me. Under Chiho's watchful eye she made sure that I got full benefit on each move we worked on. Many thanks Chiho for making this an all around beneficial experience, not only for the body, but for better mind set as well. I'm not just a grateful client but feel I have a new friend.
