(Tai Chi)



Dear Jim,

Thank you for your hospitality during the workshop in Kansas City KS. Silk Reeling is very powerful;... the results are tremendous and there is no limit anymore to what is possible to accomplish.

All the best to you and perhaps we will meet again.

Jim has been very attentive to my goals as well as introducing me to the importance of goals I hadn't realized (improved balance, increased back strength). I have worked out with personal trainers twice in the past and the differences between those experiences and this one are dramatic. Jim epitomizes the term "personal" trainer.

I continue to be amazed at the improvements I've seen in my overall health. I have more energy....I feel terrific!

In addition to being an outstanding person to work with, Jim is also a great asset to the field of Health and Fitness. He has a quest for knowledge that keeps him on top of his profession and shows his devotion and commitment to the field. While working around and with Jim for the past 5 years, his energy and high level of commitment has motivated me to become a better person in my field. Jim is a true example of what a Health and Fitness professional should be.

Thanks so much for doing the CPR class last night. One participant made the comment that she had taken this class many, many times over the years but this was by far the best one she has attended. Hats off to you Jim! You do a great job and we appreciate it.

My experience with Jim has been positive, educational and fun. Jim shows his students respect and cares for their total well being.

I felt totally comfortable with Jim due to his professionalism and background. Jim keeps abreast of new ideas and training by going out of state to attend classes so his clients may benefit to the fullest. During my hour sessions with Jim, he would give me his full attention on how I was performing the exercise to ensure I was doing it correctly to avoid injury.... I felt Jim taught me enough to go out on my own. He gave me a good foundation and understanding of the exercises, the equipment and knowledge. I highly recommend Jim to make a positive change in your overall lifestyle.

For a year and a half, I have been a client of Jim's business, The Home Gym.... During this time I have lost 65 pounds, and the cholesterol level and body mass index have substantially improved. Though I have some arthritis and am certainly no athlete, Jim offers a great deal of patience and encouragement to the weekly sessions. In addition to the exercises being challenging, Jim is skilled at bringing creativity and variety to each session .... Respect for the client, flexibility in scheduling, and expertise and knowledge as a personal fitness trainer describe the professional and dedicated service of Jim Starshak.

I enjoyed being part of the Tai Chi Class at KCKCC this semester! Thanks for your great teaching and encouragement. Your fun attitude is also GREAT! Keep up the good work. I hope to see you in class again next semester!

I feel very fortunate for having the opportunity to work with you....I appreciate your professionalism, knowledge, and encouragement. I think I am headed in the right direction & have been able to work out more without pain. Thank you for your part in this journey.

I consider Jim to be an enthusiastic, mature individual with a sincere desire to grow professionally.

He has managed to juggle his much respected work at the fitness center with his academic pursuits. The individuals he trains in the fitness center commend him highly and always request his service. When he works with them, they have his undivided attention. If they ask an exercise related question, he ensures that they not only have their question answered, but that they thoroughly understand the information.

I would not hesitate recommending Jim to you. Your program will benefit from his service and dedication.

Jim is always available to help others--be it a member, student, or co-worker. He has encouraged me over and over.... He is able to help both clients and co-workers obtain their goals. I have often watched him coaxing his clients into doing things they never could, or would, do before. He takes time to listen, he really cares about them.
