used there gym for a little while and was not happy. they dont pay much attention to your needs and leave all the time to answer phone.Feb 9, 2013Spartan T.'s reply
Hello Marty B.... I have searched QuickBooks for Marty B and there is no record of you having been a client at Spartan Training. So unless you are not being honest about your name here then you are mistaken about training at our Studio with either Vicki or myself...I had a similar situation with another person who posted a review and didin't use their name...It took me a year to find out who this person was and what I discovered was that this person had never been to our studio, had never met me or Vicki, yet he was posting this defamatory review which was a total lie...Believe it or not this person was a business owner himself and of all people to do something like was just beyond the bounds of forgiveness...Recently the courts have ruled in favor of the business owner in a $750,000 lawsuit: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/12/07/woman_sued_over_bad_yelp_review/ ....I am myself considering a lawsuit over the review... So as you can see i am taking all reviews serious and I am going to protect Spartan Training against these kind of reviews that have no basis of fact... In the 6 years that Spartan Training has been in business we have not had one negative review...Because we take care of our clients...in fact if you bothered to read the website you would see that Spartan Training offers a 100% money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with the training sessions. Spartan Training has no record of you training as one of our clients...I will eventually find out who you are through IP disclosure and when I do I will pursue legal action... The days of writing false reviews are coming to an end as the courts are now recognizing the facts. Your statement aboveI: "used our gym" nobody uses our gym...because everyone has a personal trainer...so what exactly do you mean by that statement? Also "pay much attention to your needs" what needs are you referring to? Moving on 'leaving all the time to answer the phone' leaving where the phone is right here in the studio...and I do not answer the phone when a client requires assistance... From my perspective if you have been a client of Spartan Training I think that you would already know that Vicki and I are accessible and open with all our clients and if there is a problem then you would discuss it directly with us and we would resolve any problem then and there. But this didn't happen and I have no record of any Marty let alone a Marty B ever with Spartan Training...So why are you posting this review?
I have known Robert, as a cyber friend, for several years as we both have been part of a online community. He has always been very honest, trustworthy and has a wonderful sense of humor. I know he is dedicated to his profession as a personal trainer and if I lived anywhere near Chandler, AZ he would be my first choice because he is totally committed to his clients. If you read Robert and Vicki's newsletter and the blog, it is obvious that they are very well educated about fitness and nutrition. I have been so inspired by watching the videos with Vicki. She makes weight lifting appear to be so effortless and even enjoyable. All the articles are great, on the newsletter, and I have used the recipes and they are delicious. But my favorite topics from the articles are transcending temptation and how to be more disciplined. I am a huge fan of their newsletter. Although I live so far away from AZ and wish I could personally engage Robert to help me become more physically fit in person, I would highly recommend Spartan Training based on what I know of Robert's integrity and dedication. He is a gentle soul who understands the connection between mind~body~spirit.Apr 12, 2011

- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Before you hire a personal trainer, make sure they know how to use their muscles. A few simple questions will be sufficient. 1. What are the stretch position for each muscle group. 2. How do you fully activate the muscle fiber being used in an exercise? What is dynamic tension and what does it do. 3. What is the most effective way to train a muscle? 4. How do you isolate the muscle being used in an exercise? If the personal trainer cannot answer these questions, then it would be a good idea to look for another trainer.
