    Great experience all around!

    Intro: I signed up for the TFW 8 Week Challenge. Shane helped me set goals for my weight loss and strength training, and even some personal goals to work on. He took my weight and body fat and measurements. Over the 8 weeks, my goal was to lose 5 lbs, but I lost 9 lbs! I definitely felt stronger and better about myself after the 8 weeks!

    Training: Shane is experienced and well-versed. The workouts were always changing (some day more cardio and conditioning, other days more weights and strength training). I felt he became "in tune" with me and knew the right amount of how hard to push me, yet not make me want to puke or anything too torturous haha. He was patient with my abilities and helped improve my form and technique wherever possible.

    Location: Right off the 101, which was convenient. Facility was always clean and cool! Great variety of equipment and options, which helped things from getting stale.

    Conclusion: 5 stars all around! I wish I wasn't moving to another state because I would've been happy to stay training with Shane at Ascension Training Systems. Thanks Shane!

    All I can say is, WOW! Shane helped me lose 32 lbs in just over 14 weeks! I was skeptical at first because I worked with a trainer in the past and saw no results. But Shane was always super supportive, helped me set goals, and kept me motivated the entire time. Best of all, he figured out pretty fast how to effectively push me (safely) without discouraging me. I highly suggest anybody and everyone to give Shane and Ascension Training Systems a shot, you won't regret it! Thanks Shane!

    Shane is so awesome! I was in the need of a personal one on one trainer in Scottsdale that was a decent price point. I met with about 4 trainers through Thumbtack- he was the most welcoming and friendly one and I'm so thankful I chose him! I had to get in shape to fit into my very tight wedding dress and he helped me reach that goal with nutrition advice and hard work in the gym. He is very understanding and accommodating to my crazy work schedule and so I have been with him 10 months now. He is worth every penny!!

    One word that describes Shane Lamers, AMAZING!! When I found Shane I weighed almost 200 pounds and my body fat was at 31%. That was in August 2014 and by the start of 2015 I had literally shed over 50 pounds, dropped by body fat to 16% and my 38-40 size pants/shorts were now a size 30-32. Not only did Shane provide me with the personal training necessary to accomplish this, he also provided me the nutrition coaching which is critical to this type of life changing transformation. His Training For Warriors expertise and coaching methodology works if you give him the opportunity to change your life. He truly changed mine!

    After only one session, I am happy to give Shane a 5 star rating. I look forward to working with him and would recommend him to others.

    I've only had 5 sessions with Shane at this point but my opinion, at this early stage, is very favorable. I'd give him a very big thumbs up so far.

    Shane is professional and knows how to structure a program that is specific to my needs. He pushes me hard but is also conscientious about good form and safety.

    I look forward to each "challenging" work out with him. I'm very pleased and would recommend Shane to my friends and family.
