I went in looking to lose weight. Stephen gave me a great diet plan to go by. Many options on food preferences. I also chose to have him as a personal trainer. The man knows what he's doing and at reasonable rates.
A truly outstanding personal trainer in every respect. He goes above and beyond to ensure that I achieve my goals. When I wake up in the morning and look at myself in the mirror, I cant believe I had this six pack under all that fat!
Hello, my name's Jonathan Bari. I've been working out with Wayne as my trainer for about a year now. In that time, we've focused on various aspects of physical fitness and he has put me through a myriad of different routines to strengthen my core, endurance, etc. I find Wayne to be incredibly knowledgeable in all aspects of fitness and well-being. He understands what it is to have a healthy lifestyle - there's no fad diets and shortcuts in his book. He always conveys the importance of proper form above all else. Form is everything with him, and if you aren't working out properly, he doesn't hesitate to call you out on it. As I said, there's no shortcuts with Wayne. As a personal trainer, he's truly all you can ask for. He's not just a "gym trainer" that will run you through a gambit of boring fruitless workouts without giving you the attention you deserve. If you are looking for shortcuts, fad diets, and the easy way to get healthy, don't bother wasting his time. Wayne is the real deal, and working out with him isn't easy. Then again, fitness isn't supposed to be. He's tough, but fair, and if you're willing to put in the work, he'll give you his all to make you a better you. Highly recommended.
Richard has been my personal trainer for a couple months now, and I have been thrilled with the progress I've made so far. Before seeing Richard, I had a lot of pain in my knees from running, and he took that into account when creating a workout plan for me. He has also been very flexible about scheduling appointments, and his rates are very reasonable. He is so friendly and I've definitely seen improvement in my overall fitness, so give him a call if you're looking for a trainer!!
Karl is an awesome trainer! He pushes you (just the right amount), easy to talk to and makes each session truly fun. In all of my years of seeing personal trainers - I have never seen such awesome results. I get complimented on my toned arms on a daily basis!!
Personal chef for a girl's weekend. He made a great menu and the food was delicious!
Tommy is the best personal trainer ever! If your looking for someone with patience, consistency, and compassion he is the one. He really takes time and loves what he does. I never thought weight loss was possible for me because of my busy lifestyle and poor eating habits but Tommy made it possible and I"ve lost 12lbs so far with JUST changing the way I eat. Im so excited to see what exercise has in store. If your looking for a personal trainer with quality skills he is the one. I promise you will never regret it!!!
The best experience i ever had with a personal trainer. Highly recommend Jeremy.
Alice is a very perceptive counselor who can zero in on what is relevant, and do it in a way that is not threatening or annoying even though the subjects are personally difficult. I would seek her assistance in the future.
Best Personal Training Experience I've ever had!
Mara is the reason for my success. I have lost over 20 pounds in about 6 weeks because of her. Before working with Mara I was struggling to change my lifestyle to a healthier lifestyle. In the past I never had to watch what I ate, and one day I realized I blew up! I didnt know what to do or where to turn. When I saw my gym offered the services of a nutritionist I jumped on it. Mara provided me with a meal plan, a grocery list, weekly consultations and weight-ins. Within my first week I lost 4lbs and have been loosing ever since! Mara has pushed me to be the best me that I can. I would have never lost the weight I have without her. She has taught me so much about the food I was eating verses the food I eat now. She would look at every one of my meals and let me know when I was doing great and also let me know when I wasnt. She would touch base with me almost everyday and became my own personal cheerleader. Because of her my confidence in myself is back. Mara has opened my eyes to a new lifestyle that I will take with me the rest of my life. I was struggling for 3 years to lose weight and become healthy, working with Mara that happened in just 6 weeks! Mara has taught me that anything is possible. She is the sweetest person I have ever met. From our first meeting she made me feel beyond comfortable with her. I can not thank her enough for believing in me, pushing me and staying by my side every step of the way. I would recommend Mara to anyone out there who is looking to begin a healthy lifestyle and/or lose weight.
Before working with Jim, I exercised occasionally, but never felt like I was getting anywhere. I mountain biked, played with the kids and ran with my dog, and generally considered myself in OK shape (albeit 15lbs heavier than I should be). My workout runs were typically 2-3 miles at top speed (around 7:30 pace, and my Heart Rate would max out around 180bpm). I didn’t enjoy these “all out” runs, and would usually dread going out for my next run. I’m the type of person who likes to succeed at whatever I’m doing, so I’d exercise in “bursts”. During a burst, I’d exercise frequently and would enjoy seeing my pace improve from 8:00/mile down to 7:17/mile (my personal best 2.5 miles). When I stopped seeing improvement (or got injured), exercise would drop down my priority list, I’d stop for a while and would pick it up again a few months later when I had time. In retrospect, my workout regime was unenjoyable and unsustainable. In March 2013 I weighed 187lbs and felt generally unhealthy and out of shape, so started running. I reached out to Jim and mentioned to him that I was running and he started asking questions. It quickly became clear to me that Jim knew a ton about how to train, and he offered to help coach me. On Jim’s advice, I started wearing a Garmin watch and HR monitor on my runs so he could track my workouts. After a few runs he evaluated my situation as: 1. I have a gifted heart rate (who knew?) so had good potential 2. I was running one type of workout (short+fast), and needed to: a. Slow down and get in more miles, and b. Do different types of workouts, each with its own specific purpose 3. Change my diet to get off my “sugar cycle” and shift and my metabolism to become efficient at burning fat Jim said if I followed his program that I would accomplish things I wouldn’t think possible. I figured I’d give it a try. It turns out that following Jim’s recommendations were easy to do. In fact, switching to longer, slower runs made the whole running experience dramatically more enjoyable. I actually looked forward to going out on runs because I was didn’t suffer the way I used to. Jim also gave me some interesting podcasts and books on the topics of health and fitness; I’d listen to them while running on the trail and get more informed and motivated. I found it very motivating to have Jim monitoring my exercise. I’d send him a report after every workout including the Garmin file; he’d analyze it and give specific recommendations on what workout to do next, diet, recovery, sleep, injury prevention, etc. During this period (April 2013-July 2013) I got the exercise bug. I talked to Jim or emailed every day and was really enjoying it, but I was still running much slower than I used to; I probably averaged 9-10 minute mile pace and hadn’t done anything near my 7:17/mile record. I couldn’t see the results, but Jim constantly analyzed the heart rate, pace, elevation profile of my runs and assured me that I was getting much fitter. It turned out that he was right. He was Mr. Miyagi and I was the Karate Kid. I did a sprint triathlon with some colleagues from work in Aug-2013. Despite never having ridden a road bike and being a weak swimmer, my fitness allowed me to finish 3rd in my age group, and (to my surprise) I ran the 5k at 7:02/mile pace after having swum 750 meters and biked 12 miles. After this, I started seeing some amazing improvements: • Aug 2013: Weight had dropped from 187lbs to 163lbs; resting heart rate had dropped from 70 to 48bpm • Oct 2013: Olympic triathlon: 28th of 204 people. Ran 10k at 6:58/mile (after 0.9 mile swim + 24 mile bike) • Feb 2014: Half marathon: 6:44/mile pace (finished top 5%) • Mar 2014: Sprint triathlon: won age group. 11th of 194 people. Ran 6:27/mile pace (after swim + bike) • April 2014: Olympic triathlon: Ran 6:48/mile pace (after 0.9 mile swim + 25 mile bike) • May 2014: Trail Half Marathon (>2,000’ of gain): 3rd overall out of 134 participants (1:44, 7:56 per mile pace) • July 2014: Half Ironman (“70.3”): 76th of 2535. I even beat 5 pros. Qualified for 70.3 world champs in my first 70.3 • Sep 2014: 70.3 World Championships: 902nd/2235. I raced well and enjoyed it (the competition was very fast) • Nov 2014: Ironman Arizona. 10 hours 46 minutes. 170th of ~3000 (top 6%) despite injury issues. • 2015 Season: 2 Ironmans, a 70.3, a sprint (won age group) and an Olympic (8th overall out of 608 athletes!) It has been really fun to improve this quickly. Jim’s transformation approach has made it enjoyable and sustainable. If I hadn’t worked with Jim, my March 2013 exercise burst would have ended a month later, I’d probably still weigh in the 180s, be doing bursts of exercise and my fitness goal would still be to break my 7:17/mile record. Instead, I’ve successfully and sustainably transformed my health and fitness. I set a goal in early 2014 to qualify for the 70.3 and Ironman world championships. A year ago, that goal would have seemed (1) unachievable and (2) completely insane. Now I’m half way there. I know it IS possible, and more importantly I’m enjoying the journey. I talk to Jim daily by email or on the phone. No matter how much faster/fitter I get, I find it immensely helpful to have Jim pore over the details of my workouts, provide feedback, prescribe new workouts, rest, sleep, injury advice, nutrition ideas, equipment, motivation and goal setting. My goals and exercise program will change, but my transformation is permanent. Jim’s approach made it possible.
Best results, service quality, and sessions are actually fun! I've lost 22 lbs over 4 months and I feel great! Even helped with nutritional coaching and meal prep!
Our family has interacting with Michael Demakis on various levels. My daughter, a soccer player, has worked with Mr. Demakis on strength and agility for approximately the last 2.5 years in preparation for, and now playing college soccer. His training in combination with his recommended nutritional program has yielded great results. Specific areas of improvement that we can directly relate to Mr. Demakis include: strength, agility, ball control, endurance, speed and acceleration and most importantly a strong core that helps resist injuries and improves rate of recovery. I personally have worked with Mr. Demakis on nutritional program that has allowed me to lose 43 pounds. My wife and I now work work with Mike on a weekly basis to improve my strength and flexibility. We highly endorse Mr. Demakis as a personal trainer for the college-bound athlete as well as for those of us who want to get back in shape.

Nora has been my Personal Trainer for over 2 years. She has helped me smash through many health goals while keeping me challenged and motivated. My success has been exemplary. I get compliments every day, and I am ecstatic with my increased strength. The personal care she gives me as a client is truly outstanding. There's no such thing as a cookie cutter formula with her. Every client gets continually assesed and her programs are designed to maximize your development at each stage. I'm living proof. She has a well deserved reputation in our community for being an experienced professional that get results. It's easy to rate her ?????.
Clear cut knowledge and expertise of strengths, weaknesses, and limits. Pushed me farther than my body has ever gone without damaging. Great advice and routines.
My body looked incredible after just a few sessions working with John. I tend to be lazy about working out but John kept me motivated and made sure that I was challenging myself enough to get the results without getting injured. I even saw ab definition for the first time in my life! I would definitely recommend personal training with John.
I attended my first small group fitness class at Vargus Fitness in February 2012 and haven’t stopped going since. The owner, Mike, is very knowledgable regarding exercising and what you should be doing versus what you should not be doing. I’ve never felt intimidated or uncomfortable while being there but rather strong and confident. The workouts are intense and you ALWAYS feel like you’re getting the workout of your life. You will definitely feel every bone and muscle in your body getting a full workout. The classes and his personal training sessions change on a daily basis and the best part is these classes are universal in that they are appropriate for a beginner in the fitness world or someone who’s been working out for some time. I also really like the motivation the staff provides and they never let you slack off. The staff focuses on every person individually throughout the class and will provide you with guidance/assistance/corrections on any exercises you may find difficult or that you may be doing incorrectly. Additionally, in the 2 years I’ve been attending Vargus Fitness, all of the other clientele I’ve met have been nothing but nice, fun and motivating as well. We push each other to higher limits and enjoy calling each other out if one of us falls short on an exercise. If you’re more interested in the one on one training, there are also personal training classes available. Again, similar to the boot camp classes, the personal training is just as intense and the staff can accommodate your workout to your specific needs.
