I would definitely recommend training with Svet and the rest of his team. Svet is a great trainer that actually cares about my goals and makes it possible for me to reach them. Each workout is different and is tailored to my current abilities, but at the same time it is sort of uncompromising when you have a bar set. You are pushed, but these trainers know exactly where your limit is. I was also given advice on food and how to eat along with a list of supplements picked out for my personal workout plan. Svet will drive out to my house or we can have the session at a community gym. The training is at a great price and it is well worth the money. If you want to reach your goals, train with Svetness!

When looking for a personal trainer, it struck me exactly how hard it is to find quality in any service. Most people are bad at most things, and people that take their work seriously are rare. I signed up for some classes with a trainer at my gym. Paid a reasonable amount. Got terrible advice and hurt myself. The trainer was probably trying his best but just didn't have the experience or knowledge to help me learn correctly. I was afraid to make a more serious financial commitment with no guarantee that I'd get better results... but I tried out ELIN, and I'm glad I did. I got a phone call from Elin and was immediately impressed with his knowledge and his ability to communicate effectively about critical aspects of getting in shape. It was clear this was a no-bs trainer that was interested in actually providing training rather than tricking me into paying an exorbitant price and then phoning it in. I began sessions with a trainer named Kris. Kris had the body to indicate that he knows how to work out, but that isn't always enough. You have to be an effective teacher as well. It turns out Kris has an excellent eye for form and was able to explain, over the course of our sessions, specific issues with my body that needed to be addressed. He found exercises that addressed those issues, and if I had difficulty with that exercise, he found a new one that worked better. He strikes an excellent balance between fixing form and letting you get on with the workout, neither constantly interrupting you nor letting you do useless reps. He was also able to explain and demonstrate over time the importance of the less glamorous parts of the workout, such as stretching and SMR, which all of us "know" are important but which we never really accept as crucial. In short, all of my expectations for hiring a professional trainer were met. These guys don't screw around. If you're serious, hire ELIN.

Chris is awesome. He has gone out of his way to accommodate my ridiculous schedule as a single parent. He personalizes each workout, as well as a nutrition plan, and follows up to make sure it's something you are able to stick with. I have never worked with a personal trainer before, and I'm probably not the easiest client, but Chris is approachable and friendly and he actually listens. Signing up for a personal trainer was daunting to me, because I thought someone was going to bark orders at me, but Chris is the exact opposite. I appreciate his calm demeanor, and he is able to push me further in my workouts without treating me like an Army recruit. That might work for some people, but it definitely would've prevented me from coming back. I planned on learning just a few techniques to apply at home, and only intended on working with Chris for a week, but his level of motivation has made me change my mind, and I'm working with him once a week now to stay on task with my goals. Highly recommend him, and if the other trainers at Jones4Fitness are anything like him, don't hesitate to give them a chance.

Shawn keeps our workouts challenging but fun. Before hiring him I wad super self conscious about going to the gym. But now I've let go of that insecurity and I realize that everyone is in the gym for the same reason...to see a change in themselves. While I still don't LOVE the gym (because it's the gym) I do love the feeling of accomplishment that I get after I workout and that is an amazing feeling. Shawn gives me something new each time we meet and he pushes me to do things I didn't know I could do. I have full confidence that I will reach my fitness goals by working with him.

Very professional. I especially appreciate the time they take to explain the exercises, and how they should or shouldn't be feeling while doing them. It's good to know that trainers care about your form while doing movements so you get the best from your workout while not injuring yourself.

I have been working out with Cornelius for about 2.5 years. His workouts are challenging and he pushes you. He is also flexible with scheduling. After shopping around he was one of most reasonably priced trainers in the area and he is worth it!

I've been working out with Cory for about a month now. He's great, he really pushes me every workout. I saw noticeable results after about 2/3 weeks of training. His gym he uses is very nice & he has plenty of equipment. I highly recommend.

Gary is an excellent trainer! He is very skilled, patient, and extremely accommodating with a great personality. My dad was in town from abroad for about a month and a half and I wanted him to get good physical training so that he can lead a better and healthier lifestyle. Furthermore, his hamstrings were really tight and he needed some guidance in making them looser so he can better function daily, i.e. be able to tie his shoes etc...My dad also had several other health issues like asthma and irregular heartbeat which Gary was able to work around! Gary was great at replying to my request and following up continuously to arrange times to meet. Then finding us a deal at a gym for one a short period (which apparently is not an easy thing to do!), and being accommodating to our travel schedules. Furthermore, my father was able to see a significant improvement in his physical fitness! He improved in all areas of fitness - cardio, strength, and more importantly for my dad, his flexibility. He is now able to tie his shoes with a lot less difficulty than prior to his training with Gary. Lastly, Gary was happy to provide my dad with written exercise instructions to follow for when he went back abroad so he could stay on track!! In summary, my dad and I were extremely happy with Gary's training skills, patience, and genuinely positive persona. I highly recommend Gary!!

I have trained with Emmanuel for the past 2 years. I cycled through a number of trainers before training with Emmanuel. He is college educated, professional, and respectful of my time. He caters his workouts to your individual needs and adjusts exercises based on aliments or preferences. He has a good sense of humor and is pleasant to be around. I would recommend Emmanuel Kargbo to anyone looking for a good consistent trainer. He is a former football player and sprinter, so he is perfect for ex-athletes.

Sean is a phenomenal trainer who tailors workouts based upon individual goals and needs. His background in gymnastics as well as NPC competitions is priceless. He is patient and flexible and takes his time with you while also explaining how best to maximize your workouts for the greatest success. True professional and very skilled trainer. I recommend him to anyone no matter what their fitness goals are. I’ve been working with him for 3 weeks now. I’ve lost 2 inches in my waist as well as have gained muscle and lost 6 pounds so far. Sean is amazing! He provides the guidance and expertise and you provide the effort (sweat and hard work) in the gym! Team work makes the dream work!!

Before going to Soupar as a personal trainer I had tried gyms, workout videos, and morning boot camps. All of them ended up being incredibly boring, and when it's boring it's not effective. Soupar know how to keep the workouts interesting and effective. He took the time to talk to me and figure out my goals, then crafted a carefully planned routine. And the plan is not rigid, but is tailored to address any issues that may occur during the time between visits. I credit him with helping get my weight down, my cholesterol in control, and helping get off the medication that the doctor put me on. Outside of sessions Soupar keeps track of all of his clients regarding exercise and diet. Overall he is a consummate professional who takes the goals seriously, while keeping the journey fun.

Extremely innovative, Michael's workouts are always varied and FUN! He is extremely accommodating to fit your schedule and makes sure each workout accomplishes your goals. Highest recommendation!

I can’t say enough good things about Julian! We definitely hit the jackpot with him and in a very short time, he’s become a great trainer, mentor and role model for my 15 year old son who has wanted to increase his strength/stamina while working on his soccer skills. Julian very quickly responded to my search for a personal trainer and was incredibly professional during our introductory call. It was evident that his knowledge of /experience with soccer as a player and coach would be a good match for my son. He also shared his philosophy about strength training with kids, specifically how he seeks to understand what motivates and is important to them, so he could then weave in his expertise which ultimately would result in a truly customized program to help accomplish their goals. He was eager to “meet” my son and scheduled some time to speak with him personally over the phone and get to know him. I was impressed at how he was able to get from a 15-year old boy, what his fitness goals were! In less than a week of my initial inquiry, my son was training in the gym with Julian and has absolutely loved every session with him. Julian maximizes every second during each workout and even encourages kids to come in early to get warmed up (so really, while you pay for a 60-minute session, you get 70-75 minutes!) My son has already noticed physical changes, but beyond that, his sense of confidence, focus, and dedication has increased tremendously. Julian provides encouragement inside and outside the gym by keeping tabs on my son and checking in on how he’s doing. Even when my son tried out for another soccer team, Julian gave him sound advice throughout the process, acted as a sounding board, and alleviated any anxiety he had. The investment you make in Julian goes far beyond strength training; you also get someone who takes a genuine interest in your well-being and wants you to be successful. He empowers you with exercises which don’t require you to be in a gym (my son did his own workouts during the winter break) and with general “life skills/lessons”. Go for a free consultation with Julian ... you’ll be hooked!

Niki is absolutely amazing as a trainer! She's firm but also reassuring and motivating. She's extremely knowledgeable about fitness and nutrition and is very accommodating when it comes to what I am comfortable with. It has only been one week since I've been working with her and I am already seeing results. Don't even think twice about booking Niki if you are looking for a challenging yet effective personal trainer.

I travel often and have an extremely busy schedule when I am not traveling. Utilizing League Elite's online training allows me to take advantage of personal training on MY schedule. Some days I prefer to workout really, really early and other days I prefer to work really, really late hours. Having 24hr access to my workout plan is P-E-R-F-E-C-T for me. Coach K and JB are awesome! They are professional, reliable and knowledgeable trainers. I like that they designed a workout and a meal plan specifically for ME. Thanks for all u guys do and thank u for your dedication to my progress! Now...the rest is up to me

George has been my personal trainer for 2 months now and I couldn’t be happier with my decision to choose him as a facilitator in my fitness journey. I train with him about 3 times a week and since I’ve started, I can already see and feel results. The idea of exercising and going to the gym always used to give me anxiety. I knew I wanted to be fit and healthy but I did not know where to start. After I started training with George, I began to see that exercising can be less of a struggle and more enjoyable. I actually look forward to going to the gym now because he has and continues to provide me with the directive and tools needed to attain my fitness goals...and it’s been working! From day one, he listened to my needs (which I feel is very important for a trainer to do) while pushing me to levels I didn’t know I could reach. Not only does he encourage fitness in the gym but also outside of the gym by providing a simple meal plan, despite his not being a nutritionist. George is very reliable, and communication has never been an issue. I can always appreciate someone who values my time and money as much as theirs. Which leads me to mention that his prices are VERY reasonable compared to others in the area. I can honestly say that if you choose to go with George as your personal trainer, you will not be disappointed!
