Testimonials

I don’t have enough words of appreciation for Karen Owoc. As a physician who was hit with a diagnosis which meant a sudden stop in my daily activities, I was so fortunate to be connected with Karen. I understand how an acute or chronic illness can be devastating to patients.

Karen has helped me heal and return to my normal form and way beyond that. She works diligently and cautiously with me. She listens to my body. She improvises a workout if I cannot do it. Her knowledge is impressive! I am always excited about working out with her because I’m excited to see what my body is capable of! She is truly a gifted healer!

Sonia Multani

MD

Karen Owoc has been working with me since shortly after my heart surgery (triple bypass in 2015 at age 58) and again after my total hip replacement. She has now started me on a healthy modified Pilates routine and easy-to-follow eating plan to lose weight and manage my diabetes.

She is one of the many great humans — docs, nurses, surgeons, and Karen — that I credit for keeping me alive. I just shot the best round in years today! Best my body has felt on the course in a long, long time! I still have weight to lose, but I feel great!
