Latest Review: Working with Markshane and all of his trainers at shape up studio has been the best fitness experience I've ever had. The first meeting with Markshane was a "get to know" you session and I could tell he really cared about me and my goals. When I came in for my first training session after the consultation, I could tell he listened to what I liked and wanted because my favorite exercises were sprinkled throughout the 30 min session. If you are hesitating to begin your fitness journey because you are uncomfortable in your body or with your current fitness level, don't be. The trainers at Shape up studio are kind, compassionate, and really want to see you succeed. I'm really glad I took the first step and started working out here. I have no doubt that Shape up Studio will get me to my fitness goals!

Latest Review: I highly recommend Megan for anyone looking to improve their fitness. Megan's personal training had a major impact in my life. I took yoga lessons for her for 6 months. Through her instruction I was able to balance my mind, body and soul. I also literally improved my balance skills which helps out on my favorite activity...downhill longboarding. Megan is extremely dedicated to and knowledgeable about personal training and fitness.

Latest Review: Rich has the rare combination of passion and patience not often seen in the fitness and training world. In my many personal ups and downs in my ongoing battle with my weight, Rich was the one trainer who knew how to push me, yet keep things fun and interesting. He never allowed workouts to get stale or repetitive and knew that perfect balance to push you to the limit without breaking you. The best part about Rich is that he is a normal guy's guy and doesn't look down on anyone. He knows how to relate complicated nutrition and training principles to a lay-personwho doesn't understand the first thing about any of it. My only complaint is he no longer is local so I can't train with him anymore! However, I recently lost 40lbs implementing those many little tricks he passed on to me years ago. As I said, he knows how to relate the information in ways that are easy to remember and so that you won't forget. Do yourself a BIG favor and train with Rich today!

Latest Review: I am so glad that I was able to choose Dustin R. as my personal fitness trainer. He works extra hard to meet and surpass our weekly goals. I am amazed on how dedicated he is to training me each session because he's always out early to set up and prepared all my exercises for the day. What I like most about his training is that he's always motivating me to go that extra inch no matter if I'm down to my knees. He not only trains me alone, but has also does group training for my friends and I which makes me work twice as hard. If you want results, have a healthy diet and be prepared to train hard with him for your best results.

Latest Review: I started working with Candon almost two years now and it has proven to be an amazing investment. He is a very professional and knowledgeable trainer in both physical fitness and nutrition. When I started working with Candon he was super flexible with my workout routine and fitness goals; I was newly pregnant and he was able to work with me throughout my pregnancy and beyond. One of the many reasons to choose a personal trainer is that they can watch how you exercise and tweak your posture/movements/etc to better tone your muscles and create a fitness routine so that you actually see results! Candon customizes your plan to fit you as well as push you to be better. He is fantastic at what he does and I am stronger because of it! Candon is always looking for ways to change things up and keep the workout interesting; I’m always super energized after our sessions! Candon is super flexible with scheduling around peoples’ busy lives. He also creates routines for you to do outside of your sessions with him. He is very encouraging and has become a good friend! I can’t say enough about him! He is the best.

Latest Review: Diane and I worked for a couple of weeks and she had showed me how professional she can be. She absolutely helped me a lot in teaching me new exercises. In the beginning of our course she asked where I wanted to be when it came to how I wanted my body to be and she made my own personal fitness plan according to what I told her. The fitness plan was great! Although we had only worked for a couple of weeks, I did see some changes especially in the way I eat. To top all of that she was very sociable and understanding. She actually tries to get to know you which is great. I felt comfortable opening about myself with her. My few weeks with her were great! I totally recommend working with her!

Latest Review: Lana is an AMAZING personal trainer! I've been training with Lana for a little over a month, every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. Her assessments of what you need to accomplish goals are exactly on target. Lana designed a program for me that has been working to help me achieve my goals. She has a way of challenging you that is very successful and rewarding, results are guaranteed. Lana knows what she is doing but is also smart and fun to work out with. She will push you without putting you down and knows how to challenge you to reach your goals. You'll be challenged right away and feel the burn, but somehow keep going back for more. Lana is always cheerful and motivating, and has the ability to constantly change up the routine so that it never gets boring. I'm so thankful for Lana, she not only helped me physically but also mentally.

Latest Review: Working with personal trainer Sarah has been an amazing experience for me. I'm a cancer survivor going through chemotherapy and surgeries. I lost so many pounds that I couldn't imagine how skinny I was. Knowing health is more precious than gold, I needed to change my lifestyle. But I know not where to start, how to exercise and what type of healthy diet plan to gain my muscle mass and be in a good physical shape again. Until a best friend recommended Sarah to me. When I discussed my goals and desires of my physical shape with her, I knew that I'm in such a good hand. Sarah is really professional. She monitored my workouts and planned out my typical meals for what healthy foods I should eat . Her training not only put together a workout plan for me, but it was a PERSONAL and UNIQUE lifestyle program that transformed my body. After about 10 months with Sarah's training, I met my goal from being 110 pounds to 175 pounds for my 5'6 height. I'm now very happy with my body shape as my chest has grown 3-4″ and my biceps have grown 3″. I look good and feel better than ever before. I have to thank Sarah so much for helping me and motivating me. She's really the one who transformed my life to be so healthy and happy!

Latest Review: I did a lot of research on the internet on Fitness Trainers before deciding on Colby and was thoroughly impressed & satisfied with the training program he set out for me. I loved the professionalism of the whole experience; his knowledge, work ethic, the FACILITY & STAFF. It was not a "meat locker" but people with a common purpose working hard to attain it. What I love was Colby was 100% on me in training ... no wandering eyes, answering phone with other clients and NEVER gave me the sense he was board with what he was doing. Always encouraging and keenly aware of what I was going thru mentally as well as physically. Though I have moved out of the area, I still hitting him up with advice and help & he always responds ... he is the man! Try that with some of the other trainers after your contract is up! Highly recommend him to anyone that is serious about their training on ALL levels. I am no pin up model lol. Thanks Colby!
