Over the years, I have had the opportunity to work with several personal trainers and Markshane is the best I have found. The routines are tailored for my body and fitness level and each routine is different. The custom routines, keep you motivated and are targeted for your specific body needs. Markshane is tough, but professional and personable. He takes a special interest in your fitness goals. The recommendation is really in the results and I have seen the results. After just a few weeks, I have lost weight and can see my body becoming fit and tone all over. I am now performing workouts that I did not know I was capable of doing and gaining strength as I watch the positive changes in my body. Shape Up Studio comes highly recommended by me.

She has not only helped me with transforming my body, but she has also helped me adapt a healthy lifestyle and whole new mindset. 5/5 stars for Megan and Every Body's Fit!

Having Rich as my personal trainer was the best thing that I could have done. He has elevated my workouts and my fitness level far above my expectations. His personalized workouts and attention to details are what sets him above other trainers.

To be honest I don't quite know where to begin. There are not enough adjectives to describe how amazing Lauren Allen is. I was first introduced to Lauren through a coworker who was sharing her experience and I just had to find out for myself. I have had personal trainers in the past however I never felt comfortable enough in my journey or happy enough with my progress to continue. When I first met with Lauren I let her know this and she assured me that she would do everything she could to make me feel comfortable and to this day she has only exceeded my expectations. My initial goal when meeting with Lauren was to get in shape for my wedding by working out and eating clean. Little did I know in a matter of 4 short weeks Lauren would make me fall in love with working out and find a new appreciation for my body through the changes I have already seen. She's also taught me how to eat in a way that is real, it does not feel like I am restricted like all other diets, I am eating real food and remaining cautious of portions and moderation. Lauren has made my journey one that I will never forget and I know I will continue far past just getting fit for my wedding. Thank you Lauren for giving me my life back. I have always struggled with accepting myself and the way I look but when we work together and train you make me feel as though I am capable of anything and that all my goals are within my reach. Anyone looking to rediscover a love for themselves, Lauren is your girl. Not only will she make you look and feel great she will give you tools that will last a lifetime.

Allison, is the perfect trainer for me. She challenges and inspires me to move beyond my current ability, while also respecting where I am the day we train together. Her motivation is extremely encouraging. She listens to my needs and patiently and thoroughly answers questions and explains how to properly and safely do poses. I am truly falling in love with yoga and feel very inspired to commit to a consistent practice. I cherish her kindness, gentleness and acceptance. I highly recommend her!

Tom is awesome! He has taught me so much about physical fitness as well as what sort of nutrition I should be putting into my body. He completely changed how I look at food and nutrition. I am so much more mindful of what I eat now. And I feel amazing! Before I met with Tom, I was always so tired and lethargic, especially after meals. And I don't even have kids yet!! Once I started training with Tom, he enlightened me with his vast knowledge of health and fitness. Now I am just so much more aware. He's great! Very patient, but gets the job done! He's the best out there!!! Don't hesitate to choose him as your personal trainer!

When you think of hiring a personal trainer you want someone who motivates you, who challenges you, and someone who holds you accountable. I found exactly that with Mike. I love how convenient the workout sessions are: you pick a location and time that works for you and he brings all the equipment you'll need. Most importantly, he works with you to create realistic and attainable goals. When it comes to being healthy there's more to it than just the physique you're trying to achieve and Mike understands that. Which is why you gain a great life coach aside from a knowledgeable personal trainer. Not to mention, he's always just a text away to help answer any questions or concerns.

Colby was my personal trainer for about a year and he is amazing at what he does. I've had other personal trainers in the past and he is by far the best. I saw immediate results and continued to see even more results throughout the year. He was always pushing me to the next level even if I felt like I wanted to give up. In addition to providing personal training, he discusses proper nutrition to meet your goals. He was always available to answer any questions I had. I would see Colby's other clients in passing and also noticed dramatic results with them throughout the year. If I hadn't relocated to NYC I would still be working out with him. i highly recommend Colby if you are serious about results and want a trainer who genuinely cares about you and your fitness goals.

I was a scared girl who wanted change but I didn't know where to start. I walked past the gym for 2 months until I finally found the bravery to walk in. I was matched up with Candon as my trainer & started going once a week. I have been working with Candon for 6 months straight & he has helped build confidence in me to workout & challenge myself, even on my non training days. It's about always improving myself for a happier & healthier life, starting from the inside out. Candon now works with me twice-three times a week to achieve my goals. It took a long time for me to realize that personal trainers honestly and genuinely want what you want. He will be your biggest fan. I have a spinal injury which creates a struggle when doing certain moves, but I ask Candon to push me harder and he does. If I need an easier day, he doesn't hold it against me or make me feel bad about it. He just asks for communication and honesty regarding what I'm struggling with so he knows how to help me. He praises that I've taken effort to still show up even on my low/hard days because he knows that with each day I show up...is another day closer to me reaching my goal. He is one of my #1 supporters on my overall health and fitness journey and I genuinely know that he wants to see me happy. To date I have dropped over 70 pounds with about 40 more to go. I am now transitioning away from weight loss & into muscle building/toning and I've never been more eager! I recommend Candon for ALL levels of fitness from the beginner/novice to the extreme/advanced weight lifter. He is well rounded with his education and understanding of the body & different muscle groups & has an amazing character. He is always curious and open to learning & experiencing more...AND he also loves golf! Stop waiting to make this change. Call today.

We've been training outdoors ( under cover when it rains ) which I really wanted , along with another girlfriend for approximately 3 month's . I am in amazing shape at 52 years old and I lost 8 lbs !!! I'm over the moon happy .... My vitality & energy are off the chart's and I sleep like a baby . I feel more balance in my life. Working out with Lynda has overall improved the quality of my life and I am Very Grateful 😄 Shelli

Tyler Stubbs, without exaggeration, has the most knowledge of how the body works than anyone I've ever met. Of all of the things I could say I loved about training with him, this is definitely what set him above so many other trainers (many of whom have years on him). In the past I had left so many gym sessions feeling unaccomplished because I had an unhealthy mindset when it came to excerise, and I had no idea what I was doing. I found myself without confidence or desire to go to the gym most of the time. Once I began training with Tyler, however, his knowledge and passion for what he does made for a successful workout every time; both physically and mentally. He had a complete handle on every exercise he instructed me to do; it was clear even to me that he organized each session meticulously and knew exactly what muscles were being targeted at all times. It was very clear that this trainer spent a lot of time planning outside of his paid hours (something that can't be said of many professionals). On top of this, his expertise allowed him to replace or adjust any exercise based on injuries I have. For example, I have a weak hip that is very hard to predict during my workouts. Not only did Tyler identify the cause of my hip pain before my physical therapist could figure it out, but he also was able to adjust any exercise that was bothering my hip- a quick minded feat that I was very impressed by. Tyler was endlessly encouraging during sessions- pushing me to reach my potential but also recognizing and acknowledging my limits. In three words, Tyler Stubbs is dedicated, professional, and knowledgeable beyond his years and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a quality personal trainer.

I am so happy to have found a personal trainer who is extremely knowledgeable about the field and very patient with someone who is just getting into fitness. I have been training with Stacey for almost 2 months now and love that our workouts are challenging yet fun. Aside from the workouts, she has created a diet plan specific to me and my needs. My fitness goal is to lose weight and to tone. I am definitely confident that continuing my training and diet plan with Stacey will get me to my goal body! Thank you for all that you do!!
