    Inna is a phenomenal coach. She cleaned up a few technical issues with both my press and my deadlift when I trained with her at Starting Strength HQ.

    Inna is a fantastic coach. I have been working with Inna, alongside another one of her coaches (Nick), for about 4 years now. Inna is one of the most dedicated people I have been privileged to work with. I had just left another gym I was in and was so happy to find someone who applauds strength above all. Inna taught me how to lift without fear of hurting myself. She is able to look at each lift and know exactly what you need to do to move further along. She is so encouraging. When I built my own home gym she was so encouraging about my working on my own and always welcomes me back when I need some one on one time to tweak my lifts. Any time I feel defeated by my workouts, she finds a way to show me how strong I am and how much potential I have . I highly recommend Inna to anyone looking for fantastic starting strength coaching.

    Inna is an amazing coach. She introduced me to lifting and has ever since supported me. Every time I trained with her, she gave me nothing but her undivided attention, acute feedback and positive vibes. Training with Inna is fun and rewarding! Without her I’d be weak!

    Inna is simply the best coach one could ever hope for! She is dedicated, kind, encouraging, personable, knowledgeable, and supportive. She taught me not only the techniques but also the love and appreciation for getting stronger. Her work in and out of gym is something to admire and respect! Inna’s cues and teaching really helped me learn a lot about lifting and how I understand my body. So happy that I got to learn from Inna. She will change your life!!

    Inna is the most amazing, attentive kind and caring coach anyone could have .I had really bad neck pain for years from working at computers all day , after a few sessions of strength training correctly I was shocked it was gone. I have come to Inna numerous times after sustaining injuries and with her help and brilliant guidance I was healing and working out again pain free. After being hit by a car and tearing my ACL, Inna taught me alternative ways to rehab my body and to help with my pregnancy. I highly recommend training with Inna if you can get a chance .
