Circuit training and the treadmill weren’t doing it for me anymore, and I was looking for a more comprehensive exercise program. About the same time, the media was full of reports about how flexibility and balance needed to be maintained as one got older. Kiona offered an introductory class at the gym I use, and I thought I would try it. As I went though the routines, I was surprised to discover how poor my balancing ability had become over the years. I’ve been attending Kiona’s weekly classes ever since...Read More

Dear Kiona…Just want to let you know how T-Tapp has helped me recently. I was spending many hours hunkered down over a cross stitch, sometimes as much as 6 hours a day. Because of this, I was inactive, muscles got tight, weak, etc. I started using T-Tapp Basic Workout Plus about 2-3 weeks ago to loosen up and get moving again. It has made a huge difference! My husband saw me doing it, and has done it several times. He said he had less back ache, and the numbness that he usually has in one of his toes was less. He actually was mad at me today because I did it without him!!! Thanks for introducing me to it.

Several years ago, I realized that I had to get back to the gym and get exercising regularly. I met Kiona in the gym where I was teaching and she introduced me to T-Tapp and her local weekly class. Here was a no-impact (and strangely, no-music) course guaranteed to make me lose inches and tone up. I was in a class with people who would never cut it in a high impact class and all of us saw changes not only in our figures, but in our abilities. This class raised my energy levels, tightened up my lose skin and relaxed tight muscles. The latter was very important for me, because I noticed that I was losing my range of motion, especially in my neck and shoulders. When I would back out of a parking place in my car, it was difficult to turn my head enough for a good view...Read More
I am a pretty active 66 year old lady with a fairly common set of alignment, aches and pains, and flexibility issues. I dance but don’t exercise beyond that. My visits to my chiropractor had increased and I was seeing Dr. Hudock, several times a week. About three years ago, I was introduced to T-Tapp through Nikken CardioStrides and fell in love with Theresa’s core-building workouts. However, I didn’t do the workout regularly.
I took T-Tapp workshops with different trainers, including Theresa Tapp herself, but knew I needed regularly workshops with a trainer to get the results and personal commitment I needed. I talked with Kiona and suggested she do some workshops in Richmond, where we had never had a visit from a T-Tapp trainer.
Kiona, now comes to Richmond or Charlottesville regul...Read More
Kiona….Thank you so much for the T-Tapp classes — If it was not for you, I would not have improved in T-Tapp so much! Thanks for all your great tips — I am REALLY glad I came to the classes because I realized that T-Tapp is the best workout for the time put in — and I feel great doing it! I got a much deeper understanding of what I was trying to do when I was working out — It was so fun too 🙂 I am planning to keep up my T-Tapp now that I have moved from Maryland to Illinois and I wish you the best with classes! I will really miss them!

Kiona. . . . . . . . .thanks again for your support, I can’t tell you how much it means to me. Just having someone behind me that believes I can do this means a lot. So many times at work, I’m ALWAYS the one trying to convince everyone else that they can do this, that or the other, and I never get support. Everyone thinks because I’m small that I don’t have issues, well. . . . . I’ve had High Blood Pressure since I was 25, everyone else in my family has Heart Disease but me, and Cellulite plagues my skin Most of my co-workers are a good deal larger than I am, and they just don’t understand my concerns; my need to simply EAT, and the fact that I want to feel and look THE BEST I CAN at the ripe old age of 40.
Your help, concern and support means the world to me, I’m soo thankful I’ve found y...Read More
Kiona provided great motivation by sharing her own story and personal tips. If I can only fit in a few moves a day, it’s more than I’m doing now. And if I do them with good form, I’ll still see inch loss! So as you can tell, I’m motivated. I did the BWO+ 3 days in a row now. I’m going for a 14 day bootcamp. But if I can’t, I’ll just rest for a day and keep going. Starting slowly but diligently now will get me to my goal quicker than waiting until 6 months before the wedding and trying to kill myself with the full workout. Thank goodness for Kiona! Check out the rest of my post on line!

I wanted to let you know how great I have felt after each of the three sessions [of your Mini-Clinics] I attended, and how much I enjoyed the series. It’s certainly been the most valuable fitness instruction I’ve ever received, and I would love to go to anything you ever do here in No. VA in the future.
I also want to share that my migraines have been less severe and less frequent in the past two weeks or so. Although I’ve been making other big changes in order to control them (the meds I take, being very strict about avoiding foods that are known triggers, and basically a total Attitude Overhaul!), I can’t help but think that T-Tapp has played a role in the relief I have been getting...
Thanks so much for your time and patience. You were always available to answer any questions or concerns that I had about T-Tapping. And a special ‘Thank You’ for helping me to receive my CRT, BWO+, and Total Workout so promptly (the same day). Thanks, that was awesome. I have been tapping since Saturday, and 3 days later I still feel the benefits of the program. This is one of the best exercise programs that I have used. I have used step and other aerobic tapes, but I have not seen results achieved as quickly as I have while tapping. Here it is Day 3 and my posture is better, my abdomen flatter; i.e., I look better in my clothing. Also, through years of weight training, I have achieved more muscle definition in the chest area than I ever achieved doing flys and chest presses...Read More
I had a chance to go to a clinic with Kiona (my first clinic) on Saturday, and in the interest of scientific research, I measured myself on Saturday morning and again this morning, to see if I’d show any inch loss from the clinic. Did I! I lost more than 4″ from a 3 1/2 hour clinic! I did no workout the following day, except for walking around town and a bit of stretching to work out some (ok, a LOT of) soreness. So that inch loss is purely from the clinic. The only place I measured that hasn’t shown any loss is my waist, BUT I am only 3/8″ over my lowest ever waist measurement (pre-baby, that was) and I am still so sore around my ribs and waist I suspect that I’m still holding onto some swelling there...Read More
