Jonathan got me into incredible shape. I was out of shape and chubby prior to seeing Jonathan. Now I'm lean, stronger, and at a healthy weight. Also, he is a great martial arts and Krav Maga coach. I've been training Krav classes elsewhere but not getting the results I wanted. Now my punches, kicks, maneuvers, and techniques are on point.

O.J. is by far and hands down the best trainer I have ever worked with. Sitting down and being able to identify your goals and the exact reasons for why you decided to come to someone like him to help you is what OJ excels at. From the very first day, he took the time to figure out not only what my goals were but where I struggled and needed his help outside of the usual "I want to lose weight" or, "I want to get toned." He is great at identifying your problem areas but also making sure you feel comfortable enough to share them and focuses your work out on specifically those target areas. I am not an easy cookie to deal with. After having the lap band done and never being someone who ever really worked out, OJ took the time to understand that the gym was never my thing and unfortunately I am a complainer who hates doing anything. The thing I love about OJ is, he doesn't care what you like or don't like! he will push you in the most caring way possible to be your best and that is never easy with someone who doesn't want to do it but knows they have to do it. I only trained with OJ for 6 months and unfortunately my training with OJ came to an end because he had to relocate back to the West Coast, two (2) years ago and I have to say, I am still struggling to find his replacement! I would highly recommend him for anyone who wants to reach their ideal self. He is not only educated and experienced but great at delivering results!

I have hired Manuk as my personal trainer because I'm Sweatin' for the Wedding. My wedding is in a couple of months and after searching for several private instructors I picked Manuk. Why? Because he guaranteed me results in a healthy way. No gimmicks. I've been training with Manuk for a little over 2 months and I have lost a healthy 15 pounds! I feel so energetic after workouts and Manuk is there to motivate me for every step, every jump, every mountain climber, every push up I do. Manuk is also flexible with his schedule which is always a plus for someone who is busy planning a wedding! He also keeps track of my food log. He educates me on the numbers I should aim for my nutrients and calories. Overall I've seen AMAZING results with Manuk and I can not wait to see my results in the next few months. Thank you Manuk for getting me motivated again!!!!

Excellent coach, he's very committed, enthusiastic but respectful at the same time. I have been training with him for two months now and since the first week I could see results. The session goes from lifting weights to self defence, he really makes the work out to your necessities, pushes you to give your best.

I have been training with Meghan for the last 3+ months and have noticed a significant improvement in positioning, mobility and balanced strength ever since. Meghan is professional, attentive and focused on helping me achieve my fitness goals. Her programming changes every week to ensure I am engaging and activating muscles in ways that will improve strength as well as guarantees that I will never get bored. After being an active Crossfitter and olympic weightlifter for four years, Meghan's isometric and body weight strength programming continues to challenge me in fun and surprising ways.

I have been working with Sandy for about two months. She has been fantastic to deal with. She is knowledgeable, motivating, and her work-outs kick butt!! Sandy has been very flexible in scheduling appointments and she is always on time. The sessions she has created for me have been an excellent mix of cardio, strength training, and AB work. None of the sessions have been boring! I highly recommend her services!!

I really enjoy my sessions with Chris - he’s calm, collected and listens to what you want out of a personal training experience. He’s also really encouraging and constantly challenges you during the session - while always watching and correcting any moves that aren't right. I enjoy the workouts – the time flies by and we have enough rest in between sets that I felt strong and enjoyed my session rather than collapsing in a sweaty heap – but boy, did I feel it the next day! Chris focuses on resistance with me. I would highly recommend Chris.

Worth every penny for sure. First, the facilities at Next Level Fitness are top notch and allow for variation in exercises. Equipment very well maintained. Lee is the type of trainer who listens to what you want to accomplish and helps you achieve that. I wanted someone to motivate me and push me and he was awesome at increasing intensity when needed while being very careful about avoiding injury. Knowing that I am a runner, Lee didn't focus as much on cardio. Instead, he tackled my weaknesses by focusing on compound movements and core exercises since I'm a beginner in strength training. In short, he is not a cookie-cutter trainer. The warm up and stretch routines he taught me have been very helpful in maintaining healthy and happy joints (specially since I run frequently). Furthermore, he helped learn how to continue training on my own beyond our sessions, unlike other trainers who just want your money. I feel prepared to hit the gym on my own for a while, but I will definitely be coming back to Lee. He is very flexible with his time and will go out of his way to accommodate you. Always on time, always prepared, very organized, and overall a pleasant person to be around.

I have been training with Idrise for 4 months and have achieved awesome results under his guidance. After having done various types of strength training over the last 3 years I have found my niche with Idrise. Idrise was able to motivate me and help me better understand body composition, nutrition and what works best for me. His years of experience as a trainer and fitness competitor make him a true professional in his field and I am so happy to have found him. Results don't lie and with Idrise I guarantee that is what you will get.

Jennifer is an all-around great human being and an amazing trainer. I wanted to find a trainer that I felt comfortable with and one that would listen to my health goals. Jennifer immediately made me feel at ease. I instantly felt like I was working out with a friend, but a friend who pushes me and keeps me accountable. I never felt like "just another client" to her. She cares about my progress and always keeps in touch with me throughout the week. She is available to answer questions re diet in between session and will even provide “homework” when needed. She is so energetic and sweet that I actually look forward to working out with her! Jennifer knows how to mix things up so that I don't get bored, strength training, circuits, cardio, weights, to name just a few. We never fall into a routine or gut stuck in a rut. She brings different work out equipment for us to use and challenges me at every session pushing me further than I ever imagined. She is absolutely the best trainer I have ever had and I am beyond grateful that she is leading the way for me on this health journey.

LK Fitness has been a life changing experience for me. 2 years ago I started with LK Fitness and I'm healthier than I have ever been! At 51 this is one of the best decisions I've ever made. Laurie -LK Fitness genuinely cares about the individual goals and helps to work with your specific needs. I have a few limitations with my knee however Laurie makes every effort to provide me the same workouts-benefits regardless of my limitations! I highly recommend LK Fitness to anyone looking for a personal fitness trainer "who cares" about helping you and to live a healthier life style by incorporating fitness exercise that's right for you!

Kelly helped me get into shape right before I became pregnant. She helped me focus on a work-out plan that fit well with my goals and what I wanted to achieve. She also customized a monthly meal plan exclusively for me and my interests. I couldn't be more happy with her dedication to push me when I needed the drill sergeant trainer, but also balance it out and be supportive when I was not feeling well or sick and needed to take things slow. Another plus factor with Kelly is that she LOVES dogs. We incorporated workouts that helped me focus on myself, without feeling guilty or losing out on time I could spend with my dog outdoors. Kelly is super professional, educated and experienced in personal training. I would recommend her to any of my closest family and friends.

My focus working with Sean has been injury prevention and functional movement training. He has been realistic with our planning, patient with my progress, and supportive of my goals. I work with Sean 2x a week and his emphasis on fostering a culture of fitness has encouraged me to eat more sensibly and incorporate gym time along with adequate sleep, allowing me to build a fitness habit for the the rest of my life. If you’re serious about learning about fitness and understanding your body, let Sean work with you.

When I talked to her over the phone just to do basic free consultation with her, I already knew that she was knowledgeable and I had some good feelings about doing a first session with her. I have been training with her for about 5 months, I was seeing her 3 to 4 times a week first, but now, seeing her once a week as she has given me enough confident to do right training on my own, and seeing her once/twice a week still helps me to see that Im steadily staying active and keeping my ideal weight. I had a big belly (whoops) and I wanted to get rid of it and start eating healthy and living healthy. Seeing her 4 times a week for the first month and half (maybe for like 2 months or 3 months actually) really helped me to squeeze myself. I realized how my ideas about "healthy eating" was not actually that healthy at all by getting meal plans by her. Also, her training is hard yet not boring. She does all kinds of sports and is good at incorporating them into conditioning. She will push you, and if you are the type of person who gives up so easily, she may just drop you, as she is a warrior and she loves people that have 'can do attitude'. She is there to reach your goals, but if you don't have the attitude to change your life, then there is nothing anyone can do for you. She tells all the time, YOU have to want it bad enough and I will help you to get there. But if your heart is not there, I can't help you. She is right, and she has motivated me in so many ways, and these days, I feel like I get attentions from ladies while walking into a store or walking down the street. I feel good and I know I look so much better than before. If you feel like getting trained by a warrior who knows how to make you like a warrior (I mean to reach your goals, not to train to go to war or anything..), contact her.

I've trained on and off with mallory for years. Her workouts are always creative and challenging. We managed to work beyond my goals in the past and we are working towards that again. I always feel motivated and my questions are always answered in detail. I hardly have many questions because she is thorough and usually gives an example of exactly what not to do. I highly recommend training with mallory :)

I needed a personal trainer to come to my home and help me get back on a work-out routine. Going to school on the evenings and being a stay at home mom made it difficult to dedicate time to work-out. Pamela came to my home 2x a week for 8 weeks and motivated me to push myself for 30-min sessions. That commitment jump-started my new exercise routine which I have incorporated into my busy lifestyle. She has a firm, yet sweet approach to motivate you which is a great combination to have especially when you want to give up on the last rep! She also provides weight-training equipment such as yoga mat, weights and medicine ball. At the end of the 8 weeks, I reduced my BMI!

Working with Carolyn has been a dream come true. She pushes me to levels I didn't think I could achieve, but with her amazing knowledge of the body and muscles and her ongoing compassion, she was able to easily guide me to success. I have increased my strength and lost inches and look forward to more. I would highly recommend Carolyn for your personal training needs!
