    Me and my husband have been working with Nez and Robert for a little over a month now. We can definitely tell a difference in our strength and the way our bodies look. They are an awesome team, the program is easy to follow, flexible to our schedule and prices are very reasonable.

    Nez is an amazing trainer. She is always so encouraging and willing to help with whatever fitness goals you may have. She has created such a positive atmosphere at FitNez Training Center that leaves you wanting to come back and work out more. Definitely one of the best!

    The staff and member are amazing they will quickly become the kind of people you can't live without. After a few minutes it will no longer feel like a workout and it'll more like a day out with friends. The trainers will promptly transform you from who you were into who you always wanted to be. Amazing is the only word to describe this place.

    I've been training with Nez and Robert for over a year now and have never seen such better results. She has helped me find a new passion with weight lifting and in the process I'm seeing the results of my body like I had not seen before on my own or with other trainers. She truly cares about the progress and achievements of her clients no matter how small and creates such a great training space for everyone. If you're looking for a results from a trainer who genuinely and will make your goals happen, Nez is the one to go to. She is the best I've had and pushes me more every time I train!!

    I first trained with Nez when I was a member of Art of 8 gym and instantly fell in love with her boxing and kickboxing classes! The combos were great stress relievers and the cardio sequences in between really helped me get in shape. I then continued with Nez to her small group weight lifting program. Her program design is great, flexible and she is very accommodating. I was working full time and finishing my last semester at school, so if I ever had to miss she would allow me to make up the class because she truly wants her clients to get better and stronger, unlike most gyms that just care if you pay. The environment is motivating and supportive, and the programs she creates definitely work!

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I would advise the client to meet their trainer in person. (Example, don't pay the fitness manager/owner any money until you meet the trainer he is hiring for you!) Make sure their personality and coaching style fits the type of trainer you are looking for. Resumes are great but its really the personality of a "personal trainer" that matters. You need to have a connection, a friendship, a trust with your trainer. Make sure they truly care and are considerate of YOUR specific goals and not just interested in taking your money and blurting out big anatomy words during your training.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
What's their availability for you? Are they too busy? Is their schedule flexible? What are their policies to cancel? What is their fitness lifestyle? Do they demonstrate and represent a healthy lifestyle of a personal trainer? Are they always on their cell phone? Can they relate to your goals? Do they have experience/knowledge to train you to reach your goals? Can they answer any questions you ask them regarding your workouts, like 'why is this specific drill going to benefit me to reach my goals'? If something on your body hurts while your training, can they stop and help you mobalize that area? Do they teach you about mobility/stretching in addition to your workouts?
