Rob is more than a trainer. He is a personal advisor on fitness and combines this with his knowledge of diet and lifestyle choices to help an individual fulfill their individual goals and potential. In combination with this, I strongly recommend his relaxing massage experience for the well being of your body. A complete package at a fair price for anyone wishing to improve their physical body and make lifestyle changes. My first experience with a personal trainer, and I strongly recommend his expertise and guidance to anyone! :)Apr 13, 2016VerifiedHolistic Renaissance's reply

Excellent masseuse! Very professional and knowledgeable in the services he provides. I would definitely hire him again and am considering using Rob as a personal trainer.Sep 5, 2016VerifiedHolistic Renaissance's reply
A 2 for 1 combo!
TESTIMONIAL 11/01/2017 ---------------------------------------------------------- So, I had a big plan. Part of my plan included getting fit & healthy in a year & create a new lifestyle for myself. I googled personal trainers & found Thumbtack, of which is how I came to meet Rob Ciccone & Holistic Renaissance LLC. I was skeptical(because of the unknown)but hopeful & very determined. The first couple months were drenching with no weight loss but inches leaving!. Rob has without a doubt surpassed all of any expectations I may have had. His programs & exercise workouts are hard but very effective over time, with effort. Rob's dedication, reliability & timeliness are impeccable qualities in him. 6 months into my journey with him was a turning point with compliments & wow's flying everywhere, including a comment from a date who said "tell your trainer Thank you...He must be an ass man". Rob enjoyed the laugh!. Halfway thru my journey I started massages with Rob. They are absolutely amazing & I look forward to each & every one. 12 months later...between actual weight loss & body fat lost, I'm down 25# & over 5 inches in my waist. Rob has left me feeling more confident than ever before. Fit & healthy to stay, sexy, more passionate & determined to make this my new lifestyle. In all simplicity, without Rob's help, I could not have realized my goals. My gratitude & respect run deep & Rob just might be stuck with me for a Lifetime. Thank you Rob...You are irreplaceable without a doubt!!! Sincerely TamraNov 13, 2017Holistic Renaissance's reply
Thank You Tamra, It's been great watching you transform!
I engaged Rob to stay on top of my workout regime while on vacation in Orlando. The workout sessions were exactly what I asked for - engaging, fun & challenging. Rob is super professional, very knowledgeable and motivating. I also had Rob give me a massage on my second training session and he really knows what he's doing - great technique with super effective results. When I travel to Orlando in the future Rob will be on my 'To Do' list!Aug 9, 2016VerifiedHolistic Renaissance's reply
I aim to keep the workouts fun, glad you thought so! See you next time!
My biggest concern was that I had 8 knee surguries in my life and alot of times trainers mistake being overweight for laziness. Rob had none of these preconcieved thoughts. He listened and adjusted to my needs to help me meet my goals without sacrificing the hard work that it would take. Every workout left my muscles feeling like I accomplished something but not my knees. Every muscle was sore but did not leave me in fear of the next workout. I will never forget everything he taught me. I will forever be thankful for the choice I made when I picked him. He was willing to help me with my grocery list, ways to cook simple things. He did not just give me a list of foods to follow. He helped me overcome little problems that had huge negative effects like times to eat. This was hard for me because I work overnight 12 hour shifts. People always say 'If I could do it so can you' but Rob actually showed my how. In him I got much more than I expected and for the price of having someone com to your home he is priceless. I have tried several trainers in the past 10 years and none have had the patience or the know how to deal with my physical limitations. To say that I am thankful to have met Rob is an understatement. I have achieved more in one month with Rob than I have in 10 years of working out on my own or with any other trainer. I look forward to more months training with him and to my success story Rob will be the reason that I have a success story to tell.Nov 17, 2015Verified
