After trying crossfit, UFC, fitclub, team sports, and a few personal trainers, I decided to expand my search and am very happy I did. I found Jaisen and he's been a pleasure to work with so far. From the start, he helped me develop concrete and measurable goals (one of them being get back to soccer in the spring). With other trainers, the idea was just to "get in shape," which could mean anything to anyone. The service Jaisen provides is very personal, from scheduling to working out the right parts of the body in the most effective ways. He goes at the pace that is best for you, but pushes you and is all around good company. I was also looking for a trainer that I could get along with and feel comfortable with, at my not so comfortable weight. He's all around motivating, understanding, hard working and professional. The price is great as well. I would highly recommend him to my friends and family.
My first meeting with Craig was great, the level of professionalism he has was what help me pick him from other options, his energy, level of commitment and attitude are amazing. He tailored my training in what I need to improve and i feel better everyday. He is really one of a kind, speaking coach, life coach and carrear coach, he is the best
I had an amazing experience with Rhonda. The session is never boring and it's in a open nonjudgmental environment. She is flexible with your schedule. Truly the most "personal" personal training I have had!
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!
I have been working with personal trainers for the past 9 years and, in which I have worked with almost 6 different great trainers! With that being said, my current trainer, Bejko Evis, truly took it above and beyond and took the service to a whole new level. Throughout the last couple of months working with him, he was always extremely knowledgeable, hard working, caring and he always pushes me to break new records. If you are looking for a high intensity workout with s cool guy- Evis is your man!
I wasn't sure how coaching worked and if it would be for me. I was a little shy at first to reach out and talk to someone I didn't really know. After working with Judy, I was able to really express my true thoughts and feelings regarding topics I could barely tell anyone else. I gained more confidence and strategies for reducing stress and learning how to deal with specific triggers that hindered my potential.I throughly enjoyed Judy and her feedback to my concerns. The frequency and timing of sessions was easy to manage with a busy schedule and the resources she provided me will continue to help me in the future. I would definitely recommend Judy's services as she is a reliable, personable and incredible individual who has helped me progress in areas I was always unsure how to correct on my own. Judy has been a pleasure to work with and is really worth a try if you’re in need of life coaching!
Tom has shown that he genuinely cares about how, when, and if I progress. He is invested in whether I actually achieve breakthroughs toward my personal success. Considering that my goals are so immense: to metamorphosize an ashamed, unhappy, ineffective, & lonely guy, with limited professional influence, into a proud, happy, effective, socially fulfilled, & profoundly influential version of myself, it would have been easy for him to give up on me. Even though I'm confident many life coaches in his position would have terminated our relationship months ago, dealing with such a high-maintenance client as myself - expressing to him hundreds of suggestions / criticisms / requests, expecting a personalized experience that caters to my individual needs, and offering frequent pessimism or guarded skepticism at best - he has been patient, flexible, & determined to support my progress. It has been several months since Tom started coaching me, and I have consciously delayed writing a review until I might have a sense not just that he cares and won't give up (after all, that's part of the job description), but that he will actually help me transform myself, in ways that countless others haven't. I have worked with therapist after therapist for years & years, undergone treatment with psychiatrists, hired dozens of countless project collaborators and personal assistants, and tried more times than I can remember to count on the support of family and friends in order to help me make the steady progress needed to break out of a deep debilitating personal rut that has lasted for decades. All of the above have been unsuccessful. I naturally wasn't expecting Tom to be any different. But I gave him a shot, deciding that I deserved a chance for renewed hope. I almost gave up on him and on myself, but he didn't give up on either. And finally, after months of 'blood, sweat, and tears,' I have come to believe there is hope at the end of the tunnel. I'm beginning to make steady transformative progress, and I'm looking forward to the journey that lies ahead. Prerequisites for success: I have to be patient, make a few reasonable leaps of faith, and make an investment in my future, emotionally and financially. I also have to be an active participant and be willing to gradually take the reins myself. I finally have to accept his limitations, while recognizing and counting on his strengths. His limitations: Tom is not a miracle worker, and in comparison to others I've worked with, he's not the most charismatic, inspiring, eloquent, forward, original, perceptive, intellectual, tech-savvy, exciting, or assertive. But his STRENGTHS far outweigh these limitations: He is persistent in his efforts. He is determined to be an ally on the road to victory, offering extra support when needed, never conceding defeat. He is compassionate, showing empathy for my experiences & struggles, frustrations and pain, & and my initial often-pessimistic attitude. He is patient, and will put in the time to understand, listen, and reevaluate / regroup when necessary. He is humble and modest, not expecting recognition, praise, notoriety, credit, or gratitude for going above and beyond. He is affordable, & ends up charging far less money than he could for his time, and far less than any of the other life coaches I considered, let alone being a mere fraction of the cost of a therapist or psychiatrist! He is respectful, as a friend would be, but sensitive & honors any boundaries I set. He never speaks down to me. He is honest, and when requested, very candid about what he thinks needs improvement, more, focus, or a shift in perception. He doesnt rub me the wrong way as a salesman might, as though Im a source of income, but always treats me like a person who deserves to achieve his dreams. He is passionate about helping people. He works very hard, often going above and beyond what others would do, putting his clients ahead of his personal life. He is fair, respects agreements, honors his word, readily forgives, and shows lenience. He is creative, willing to try to approach problems from new perspectives and angles. He is open-minded, willing to work with approaches and systems hes unfamiliar with that I know are likely to be effective. He is trusting, and gives me the benefit of the doubt, while also helping me to become more accountable. He is reliable, and I have been able to count on him in ways I couldnt count on therapists, employees, mentors, friends, & family. His system of "open access" helps me throughout the week, and this unique system of coaching has been the key to my success, helping me beat procrastination and not lose sight of my goals. He is flexible, & accommodates limitations, changes, and conflicts with my schedule, deficiencies in my attitude, and treats my perceived failures like learning opportunities to take a new, more promising approach. He is resilient, and puts up with much more than necessary for someone in his position, and never complained once to me about it. Finally, he is kind, complimentary, and friendly. He's like that 'conscience on your shoulder.' I would recommend him to anyone who is considering hiring a life coach, or to anyone who has unfulfilled dreams they know they deserve to and could achieve, but haven't. Thank you, Tom, for your efforts, and quality work :)

I really just started my personal training journey with NBI Fitness and I am quite pleased - I'm pleased with their level of expertise when it comes to fitness. I'm also pleased with the attention and encouragement to help me reach my goals. So they are awesome!!
I actually am a personal trainer who moved to the area to continue my education. I needed a trainer to motivate me to stay in shape after those long 12 hour study days. Rich pushed me when I didn't think I could do an extra set or lift that heavier weight. He's the type of trainer who could kick your ass in a workout, which of course is what I wanted. However, I see him work with many different types of people, of all shapes, sizes, and ages where he is able to create a program catered toward his clients needs. He is educated and understanding and will teach you how to work around your injuries. Thanks Rich!
Working with Kathy is awesome- I do see myself working with her for a long time. Love her coaching and encouragement as well. Kathy, trianing is all about proper form and no injury! And that is key for proper weight-lifing!!! One can get awesome training without the overly soreness- muscles are worked without the extreme shred. Love it! Great workout and great coach. Thank you !!!
Kylie was really professional, kind, attentive and caring. The space was beautiful and provided a safe, relaxed environment. We talked before and after the session itself to address my specific needs and the advise and guidelines I received in addition to the healing is already helping me release emotional blocks and live more according to my intentions. The session itself was relaxing and comfortable. I would highly recommend her services! Best regards, Hilde
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!!!
I met with Jerry today for personal and career coaching and it was a really great experience. It was my first meeting and I think it went very well. It's true what others have said, the meeting really feels more like a conversation than any other type of therapy and it really gets to the root of what you want to accomplish and defined steps on how to achieve your goals. I left feeling refreshed and with a very positive outlook.
Kevin is truly a ' best in world' trainer. I can't say enough about Kevin but please read this and hopefully you'll have a better idea of how he has changed my life on a very personal level. I have severe health issues and take lots of medicine. My doctors told me i need to work out with someone who can handle the complexities of my case to build bone density and I was lucky enough to find Kevin. He is like a personal trainer, chiro, physical therapist and friend all wrapped up on one. He is so committed to helping me have the best quality of life and so well versed on many things I trust him implicitly and consider him part of the core team working to make me better. I've had the oppty to work with trainers in many states who were all supposedly the best and can say that Kevin is in a league of his own. He is so creative and comes up with a different ways to challenge me, make it fun, change it up, incorporate things to help build core and posture overall and bring things into the mix like boxing that he knows I really like. I truly look forward to our sessions and always feel better afterwards, it's been great to see the progress and my doctors are thrilled that I was so lucky to find him- he has blown away any expectations. Whether you have health challenges or are training for the army or wanna look good for your wedding or the summer bathing suit season Kevin will not only help you achieve your goals but will quickly become part of your way of life. I can't say enough about Kevin and his dedication, expertise, continual desire to learn more ways to help and just being a cool guy and easy to laugh with-if you are lucky enough like me to work with Kevin you should jump at the oppty! Seriously, he is worlds best trainer.
Justin is a true pro. Very valuable coaching in preparation for a business presentation I was giving. He asked good questions to understand the context of the situation and tailored his coaching to that specific opportunity. Great insights on the importance of the physical/mental connection needed to help make a successful speech. Always on time. I highly recommend Justin to any interested in improving their public speaking skills.
Gabriella is more than a life coach/therapist, she's a friend! Best experience ever. I love her! She's helped me beyond what I ever expected.
Working with Jeanine was an absolute pleasure and it is remarkable to see how much positive transformation she has facilitated in my personal and professional life in just 6 weeks. It is evident that coaching is Jeanine’s passion and she has an incredible gift. Her style is incredibly personalized, consultative, thoughtful, and inspiring, and I found myself empowered by her ability to offer a plethora of resources and guidance. Now that we have completed coaching, I am particularly grateful for Jeanine’s conscious efforts to serve as a teacher while giving me the tools to create change in a gradual, sustainable way. Through meditation, intention-setting, and reflection, Jeanine has enabled me to achieve heightened self awareness, feeling more centered, present, and confident. Not only did Jeanine help me accomplish every one of my goals that I set for coaching, but I am now pursuing my dream career and ready to continue to use the tools that she provided to continue to evolve my aspirations while savoring the journey along the way.
Vonne! In reflection, one of my favorite qualities about her is keen sense to listen. She factors in the importance of goals and how they can relate to ones personal finances. She is incredible at allowing you to think beyond saving or making money but also how one is a part of the larger picture. I’m super thankful for our time together and trust she won’t steer you wrong.
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.
My experience with Theresa as my health coach was excellent. She helped me see further into my eating habits and ways to work through my daily urges. Theresa has a lot of patience and very knowledgeable about health coaching. She not only teaches but also follows it in her own life. I admire how discipline Theresa is when it comes to healthy eating. This was a great experience, I would recommend her to anyone that is serious about making real changes in their life. You won't regret it!!!
