I couldn’t be more thrilled with my experience with Gravitational Performance & Coach McCormick. She has changed my life immensely in so many different areas  – my mental mind set, journaling, exciting moments & stressors, setting short and long term goals for this year  as well as my nutrition, and fitness! I’m on the West Coast & she is on the East but she sends me weekly videos, notes, texts & calls. The long distance doesn’t even matter because it feels like she is right by my side. If anyone is looking for some help in any of these areas – I would in absolutely no doubt recommend her! She deserves more stars than I can count!

Cheryl has always been a fit motivated athlete and has always inspired me to do better. I've known her for over 10 years and she has 'Benjamin button syndrome' meaning she gets younger with age. Even after 2 kids! I do anything she says!! She has always supported my green juice business too as she knows the importance of health and balance. Thanks For gravitating my fitness!
