    Wow. John is such an amazing trainer. He's a cool, down to earth, chill guy, who challenges me to do me best. I had never done free weights before and was very insecure about ever trying it. However, John made me feel very comfortable. He showed me the proper form and developed a workout plan for me to reach my goal of bulking up and getting more muscle. I now feel confident in the Gym, instead of feeling like everyone is watching the silly skinny dude. And results! Literally within a few of weeks I was seeing results. I feel stronger than I ever have been, lifting more than I ever thought a skinny dude like me could ever lift, and feel generally more confident. I highly recommend John to anyone. A nice dude who will get you results! You can't beat that.

    Nutrition always lacked
    My problem was always trying to get enough food. I'm an extremely active person and nothing worked for me gaining strength and size. John has helped with my food for about month in a half now. I can not say enough about his services. I feel better lifting than I have in years. I have hit pr's on deadlift and bench already and felt great doing it. If you're looking for help in nutrition I highly recommend John. He has been a game changer for me.

    John is great. You could not get anyone better for pushing you, chit chat, knowledge and attentiveness. He has always been punctual and is flexible with my sessions timing. He is fun to be with. He has even made friends with my dog.

    I am a recent trainee of John and he is hands down amazing! His method and style of training is outstanding and more importantly extremely effective. He pushes my limits and provides me tips on how to continue working out effectively outside of our training sessions.

    Most awesome trainer I've ever had. Super knowledgable and professional. It's very difficult to find trainers these days who actually practice what they preach and base their regime on science not blogs. John is definitely an exception! I am very grateful for his assistance in helping me reach my goals . Thanks John!

I was challenged, motivated and I am feeling my workout today... something I have not experienced in way too long. He has been very responsive to my texts and questions. I look forward to continuining our Journey.

    John is an amazing personal trainer, he is the type of trainer that makes you feel so good about what you're accomplishing, while at the same time pushing you to excel. I'm the type of person that thrives with positive reinforcement and that's what I get from John, he's also very flexible and able to work with you on scheduling. I would highly recommend training with him.
  • Maite C. Jan 7, 2015
    Trained with John for 4 months and he's been able to help me understand how to work out properly. His knowledge level, Professionalism and his true understanding of the physical mechanics of the human body is demonstrated in his ability to train and motivate clients of varying levels. He willingly shares his expertise with you and make sure your sessions are fun and challenging learning experience.
  • Rick M. Jan 7, 2015
    After I followed John's program my body changed drastically. His diet and exercise plan and coaching along the way really helped me get the results I want. Thank you John!
  • Gia V. Jan 7, 2015
    Great tips and ability to work around equipment, body and medical restrictions. Was really great with offering advice in weekly Skype calls to overcome personal hurdlers whether motivational or range of motions. Unfortunately, I didn't stick with the program long enough to see the results that would've only taken a few months of truly dedicated work but that is a failure on my behalf and have no reflection on John or the attention he gives his clients. If you put the work in you will see your body do amazing things!
  • Sonia S. Jan 7, 2015
    All I can say is John is wonderful. He is not only a good trainer but he is a wonderful human being. I have been training with him since September 2014. I recently switched from training 3 days a week to 4. I have seen significant differences in my strength levels and my body. He is always on time, very courteous, and I can see the passion he has for fitness. He lives by what he preaches. I am very fortunate to have him as my trainer and I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
  • Charmaine K. Jan 7, 2015
    John is a fantastic trainer! He is knowledgeable, credible, motivated and intense, but with an easy going personality. In addition, he is also reliable and has our best interest at heart. As odd as it sounds, we actually look forward to his work outs! But don't take my word for it. The results speak for themselves. Look at his own physique and look at the transformation of his trainees. I recommend him without reservations.

    I've worked with other personal trainers in the past. But my experience with John exceeded my expectations for several reasons. Upon meeting him I felt quickly at ease. He was able to quickly assess my physical ability and pushed me just enough past my comfort level. I had an amazing workout! He was very encouraging and positive towards me. It was very obvious he was extremely knowledgeable not only in training but he also came up with a detailed strategy to help me reach my fat loss goals especially with my nutrition. I feel very confidant in his ability to help me. I also know he will keep me free from injury. He exceeded my expectations. It was the best experience I've had with any personal trainer.
