I lost 17 inches off of my waist! My legs, hips, butt, midsection and arms are all shaped beautifully. I have this long, lean, extremely feminine muscle tone now, and I so so *love* it! Did I mention I am a mother of 4?! Meryl really knows what she's doing and delivers. Personal Training with Meryl is a must! More...

Meryl is so much fun to work with! It was like I blinked and got results with her. She is highly educated in fitness and nutrition, which is a winning combo. I had to buy all new clothes because I’ve lost so much weight and look so darn good! I smile when I look in the mirror thanks to Meryl! More...

Meryl has such a depth and breadth of experience a a Personal Trainer. Plus, she’s fun! She is not a drill sergeant type. Instead, she motivates and inspires you to get fit and stay fit. And the result? You look hot! And you’re healthy! Oh, and I dropped down from a size 12 to a size 6! More...

What a pleasant experience! Meryl is a true gem. She changes up the exercises every day, every week and every month! And the nutrition/supplement advice she gives help you lose even more weight and feel even better than the workouts do alone. And her workouts are realllly good!!! More...

Meryl is a ray of sunshine! She can get me to do any kind of workout when we train. I like the stretching and foam rolling she does for me at the end of every session. I really feel like a million dollars after our sessions. Also, Meryl is conscientious and has years and years of experience as a trainer, which really show when she trains you! More...

The whole experience with Meryl, or Miss ZipZapFit Queen as I like to call her, has knocked me off my feet. Meryl is a very gifted and talented Personal Trainer. She has this depth and breadth of info and knowledge that I have never ever encountered in a trainer, she is quick, things get done, she can get me to workout no matter how I am feeling and really makes me happy. I look very good right now, I look hot okay, and I have Meryl to thank. I'm 60 so I didn't really think I would ever feel hot again. I'm very healthy too. I didn't know I would reach my peak in health at age 60! More...

Wow!!! I dropped 50lbs in 4 months, and I have kept it off with Meryl’s help for an entire year. I continue to define and tone my shape, and I feel fantastic. I have so much energy that I don’t want to nap anymore. Meryl also helps you with your nutrition and supplements which really serves your end goal. I am so healthy too! My doctors are pleased with all of my numbers. THANK YOU MERYL!!! More...

So here's the thing...I have never been able to get the fat off, firm my entire body and tone it up and still look like a woman. Now...thanks to Miss Meryl...I am fit, and I look like a woman! I am hot! Also, I have confidence in myself and my whole life is just better. I am so happy an so thankful that I met Miss Meryl! A big thumbs up and five stars for ZipZapFit! More...

Meryl is awesome! Today was my very last class with her, and the progress was beyond what I thought possible. 6% loss in body fat and 6 pounds lighter. Meryl makes every second count and knows how to get results. If I ever injured myself, she knew how to deal with it and make it immediately better (or recommend people to go to). Following her meal plan is also incredibly important, but Meryl customizes it to every individual. I would recommend her to absolutely anyone who wants results. You WILL get them! More...

I like two things that really made ZipZap standout:1: immediate intuition on what needs to be worked on - very non traditional. In my case, being 6'2" guy, it was my hips, butt, core and then everything else followed. Most trainers I've seen go straight to arms/legs/chest etc. ZipZap hit the core and has given me a foundation to now spread out. 2: most importantly, ZipZap has an amazing network of professionals. So thru it's ever growing network I have had Chiropractic, leaky gut, alternative Chinese medicine, body massage and life coaching. Full end-end deal.Thank you to ZipZap and Meryl who is behind it all. More...

No nonsense, direct, professional. She motivates you. You always have her attention unlike other trainers that I see on their phones texting away while their clients are exercising. Works with you when you need to reschedule. I've stuck with her or perhaps I should say she has stuck with me through thick and thin. I was not a committed client initially, it took me awhile and the results are coming on quickly. More...

Meryl is a great trainer. She is very skilled and enthusiastic. She takes time to really get to know her clients and their desires and goals. Based on her client's expectations, Meryl tailors every session towards helping her clients achieve their wishes. She pushes you to perfection and is there every step of the way even when you are not in session with her! Meryl is an absolute pleasure, and I would highly recommend her to anyone! More...

Meryl would get a million stars from me if I could possibly give that many.
Before I met Meryl, I had low energy, I was really lacking confidence, I felt horrid inside and out. I didn't feel like my self.
**Meryl has changed my life**
I have fitness and body anxiety. In other words, a swim suit vacation can have me think about multiple ways not to participate. I never wore skirts without covering my legs in thick stockings, I never ever wore shorts. I also literally avoided anything fitness related, as I had so many aches pains, and fitness limitations, I just could not imagine participating in anything, even hiking was a headache for me. On top of this, after two c sections, my core seemed non existent, previously a dancer, my core was everything to me, I had always been incredibly strong. At the point I met Meryl, I could not even reach my core muscles to engage them.
Me a few months with Meryl.
I now hike on the regular with my kids, the great outdoors does not fill me with fear of having to get naked. I can even run with my kids, I play tennis, (what?!), I eat really well, I enjoy my life. I have a stronger connection with my kids and especially my husband. I even walk straighter.
All you need to do is show up for yourself, that means attend every session, listen to Meryl's feedback, trust her, if you are ready to do that, watch yourself transform, and just to be clear it is not about being skinny for me, it never has been, it has always been about getting my body strength back, I missed it, and now I have it I never want to let it go.
Meryl also gets in your head, has you change the way you talk about not only yourself but your life. She is absolutely adorable with my kids - patient and always encourages me to give them a hug or stop my workout if they need me, which is great because sometimes you can feel conscious of not wasting time, she truly understands the dynamics of working in a house with two very active talkative kids hanging around.
My life has changed, my business is FLOURISHING, my kids are inspired, my kids even listen to me better now.... my daughter wants to teach children how to be healthier.... everyone in my house has been touched my Meryl's effervescent, full bodied from her gut laugh and energy.
Oh, did I mention? ....she is funny as f*** and so much fun! I adore Meryl.

Meryl does a great job of keeping me focused and having fun. Training in my home works really well with my schedule and I look forward to our sessions.

Meryl has changed my body, mind, spirit, and my life. The first day I came to her, I almost fainted several times during the workout. That's how out of shape I was! Now, I can run longer than 20 minutes without breaks, I am super strong, and have much more energy. She is super smart, energetic, funny, and makes working out and being healthy FUN. She helped me reach all of my fitness goals, and more. However, the thing that I am most grateful for, is how she helped me take control of my life. I am happy, free, and fit as F*** after training with this amazing woman. She is everything you want in a personal trainer, and SO MUCH MORE. More...

Hiring Meryl is simply the best decision my husband and I have made in a long time. She's exactly what we needed which is a swift optimistic kick in the ass twice a week. Our bodies feel incredible now compared to just 3 months ago when we started. She is insanely professional, knowledge, kind, and pushes us each session to be better than the last. She is kind enough to make the trip all the way out to our home twice each week which in and of itself is beyond helpful and kind.If you're thinking about hiring, do yourself a favor and just do it. Besides, there's no gold in that floor you're staring at. More...

My experience with Meryl has been amazing!! Before I started with her I had no idea what I needed to do when it came to fitness. I am seeing changes in my body and my strength that I never thought I would be able to see again! She is extremely knowledgeable in her field, and I feel like I can ask her anything and get a straight forward answer (with other trainers I feel like they kind of danced around the questions). She makes working out fun, but she will kick your butt! I am excited to have my body back! More...

Meryl Hawk is this little burst of energy and kick in the butt that you've always known you needed but were too lazy to find within yourself. She is so enthusiastic, attentive, and encouraging that you want to work harder and gain her praise. She is tough. But she is absolutely a professional and will work with you to keep you motivated. In my case, I had a previous back injury that limited some of the exercises I could do. Meryl would always check on me and make sure I wasn't in pain and if I was then we would stop immediately and do something else. She is an incredible physical trainer and I am so lucky that I got to work with her. More...

Meryl is enthusiastic, extremely professional, and truly cares about your fitness goals and overall health! She's an endless source of wonderful recommendations. In my case, I have extreme allergies--so often my diet feels limited and boring. Meryl created a meal plan with careful research and plenty of options to keep things interesting. I look forward to our sessions each week and can't wait to see more incredible changes in my health. If you are looking for a trainer who will give you tons of personal attention and meet and exceed your expectations, Meryl is the real deal. More...

Meryl is a top notch, professional, extremely knowledgeable, dedicated personal trainer. She tailored my sessions around my goal to train for the upcoming LA Marathon in Feb 2016. I have become faster, leaner and stronger both in mind and body due to our PT sessions. Meryl is focused throughout our scheduled one hour session and scheduling is so easy! She is thoughtful and knows the right questions to ask.... She gave me sustainable recommendations for diet, wellness, homework, posture and so much more. Meryl is a positive force, and while her workouts push me to limits I have never been pushed to before  (balance, weights, core training), she motivates you through it all...... I like to say, "I need my dose of Meryl positivity today!" While I love to run, I do not like weights, and really that does not cut it. Meryl has shown me the way, and I am excited to exceed my expected Marathon pace time thanks to her! More...

Meryl is a great trainer.  She is nice and friendly and makes you feel comfortable to do the most challenging workouts.  She tries to listen to you and your complaints about the body to better work with it.   I love the feeling after the awesome workout with Meryl.  She conducts assessments and discusses nutrition and any other factors necessary for overall well being and fitness.   My body feels amazing even after one session with Meryl.

Meryl was my trainer a few years ago. She is such an amazing motivator and coach! Meryl always took time to help me with everything from nutrition to form while lifting. She created fun and powerful workouts for me, we always had a blast! Meryl incorporated everything from kickboxing, sprints, wall balls, free weights, and all kinds of other fun! I wish she was back in Texas so I could still train with her! While working with Meryl and following her nutritional guidelines, I toned up and was on my way to getting in great shape. Meryl took me from a depressed blob in my early 20s to the woman I am today, a fitness enthusiast training for crossfit and other competitions. I owe my change in perspective to Meryl. If it hadn't been for her encouragement, I'm afraid I'd still be eating Taco Bell several times a week and topping off almost everyday with a pint of Ben & Jerry's. I highly, HIGHLY recommend Meryl Hawk! More...

It is actually impossible to overstate how great a trainer Meryl Hawk is. I have been training with her for nearly six months and in that time, she has turned my workouts and nutrition around, and I look like a new man. She has such a sense of intuitiveness with regards to what her clients need. As well, with regards to scheduling, she is flexible, and in communication she is prompt to respond to questions. If you give her a chance, she will change you for the better, I promise. More...
