When I started training with Sean I was a 39 year old mother of two. I've struggled with my weight my whole life. I didn't exercise; didn't really know how to, and I certainly didn't watch what I ate. That's not the role model I wanted to be for my kids. I didn't want to be the mom who sat on the sidelines and watched her kids lives go by. I found Sean through a co-worker. Didn't know anything about hiring a personal trainer, but I lucked out and gave him a chance. It wasn't easy but I stuck with it and didn't quit. I trained with Sean for about a year. During that time I lost 40lbs and my strength and fitness level increased phenomenally! He not only taught me how to exercise, he also taught me about nutrition. Even though I don't train with him anymore, we keep in touch and I still ask Sean advice on all things fitness related.
Last Spring, I was pretty miserable. I was very overweight, very out of shape, and living with a lot of pain in my feet, ankles, knees and back. It was getting difficult to do the every day things I needed and wanted to do, and I was feeling lost. Exercise hurt too much which resulted in more sitting, more eating, and more weight gain. In a moment of motivation, I searched on Yelp for personal trainers near me and made a call to TruFit. I feel very lucky that Jaime answered the phone that day. We've been working together for 10 months now. In that time I've lost over 50 pounds, a few clothing sizes, and many inches. More importantly, my back pain is gone and I am back to hiking, walking, and I recently started running again. My joints feel much better and can carry me wherever I need to go. The best change is that my resting heart rate has gone from 84 beats per minute down to 63. I feel much healthier, happier and have a lot more energy. From day one, Jaime has been encouraging, motivating and challenging. Our workouts are always changing and I'm never bored. Jamie focuses on all aspects of health, not just our strength training sessions: nutrition, food habits, sleep, cardio, and more. He genuinely cares about me and is fun to work with. I have more progress I want to make; and I just signed with Jaime and TruFit Personal Training for another year. I'm looking forward to another year of success and finding out what I'm capable of next!
I can't say enough good things about Elin Personal Training and my trainer Alek. He is so particular about breathing and form, he keeps me motivated, has new exercises every time we meet and is very encouraging. I did not do any exercise before we started and I was nervous but I would highly recommend him. He's always on time and I would highly recommend this service. Very very worth it!!
I discovered Jenise through thumbtack and by reading reviews about her. I had been seeking for a personal trainer. After my initial consultation, I knew that she was the trainer for me. To give an overview of my fitness level: I am 26. I am a non-athlete. Actually, I’m pretty uncoordinated and clumsy and have never regularly exercised before. I love yoga but I also never got into doing it regularly enough. Its rare to get the motivation for me to get up and go to the gym which is why I chose to seek a personal trainer that can come to me and give me an individualized service. When I contacted Jenise, she offered for a consultation and to see my goals and ultimately see if my schedule will fit in with hers. I should have worn appropriate clothing at that time to do a fitness assessment… nevertheless, after booking she came to me for the assessment, measurements, and weigh-in. We completed 12 sessions in a 1 month period. Just like learning a new skill or a language or an insurance for a healthier life in the future— every penny is worth it. If I could afford it, I would for sure continue working out with Jenise 3 times a week all my life!! But this has been a really great stepping stone to a STRONGER me. The workouts as other reviews mention are different each time although during every session you focus on different parts of the body. Usually you do one session focusing on lower body, one on upper body and one focusing on the core. She makes sure that your workout is high-intensity and always adds new moves or gadgets to the workouts to make it fun. Boxing, resistance training outside in the neighborhood, when the weather is nice, were some of the highlights for me. Even though, I liked the convenience of her coming to me.. I also liked going to her location at the end of the week to top off my workout and get the MOST out of my weekly workouts. Her gym has all the equipment needed to kick butt. She really understands the anatomy and where your weaknesses lie as a unique individual. She builds your workouts according to these and changes the number of repetitions or the amount of weight as necessary during the workout. She watches you closely on your form and ensures you get the most out of every exercise. I personally never liked working out because I never knew how to. I knew I had terrible form and didn’t know how to fix it. Jenise became a teacher to me and showed me how to properly lift. She also always reminded me to breathe when I exerted energy (I tend to hold my breath when I lift .. its no bueno!) Now I see that I have made progress and I have learned proper form, I am keen to continue with it. My 12 sessions came to an end last week. I would 100% renew more sessions with Jenise if it weren’t for my mother looking to join a gym with me. Right now, my finances and time aren’t allowing me to afford both, but I know for certain Jenise and I will be training again in the future. I can tell she has made a STRONGER me and I don’t want to lose any of what I have worked for this past month! If you are hesitant, I get that. Truly. But give it a shot. Jenise is wonderful. Trust her, she knows exactly what you need. I'm so glad I trusted her on this journey. I highly recommend CW3 to everyone!
I love working with Cornelius. We meet twice a week and July will be my 3rd month of having him help me with fitness and strength training. There are many reasons why I would recommend him. Here are a few. I am 45 year old woman, 5.5 in height and weigh 230lbs. I was a strong swimmer when I was younger, but have never spent much time in gyms. I would describe myself as having little to no awareness of myself as someone who can train. But I did know that I needed and wanted to get into much better shape. I was also excited about developing better balance, a stronger core, and even new skills like boxing. When I met Cornelius he asked me detailed questions about why I was there and began to develop a program around my strengths, goals and limitations, which included a lower back injury and tendinitis in my left elbow. Every time we meet he asks briefly on how I am doing, and I know he is thinking through the workout to take me to the limit of my capabilities while still ensuring that it is enjoyable. I always have a great time and am tired but invigorated when I leave. This has altered how I view exercise and feel about myself. The gym where we train is tiny but has taught me important things about how less is more, and that you can do a lot with what's around you. This has been a huge help in keeping on training when traveling as you don't need to find a gym but can do many things to build strength and keep in shape where you are. Finally, I feel safe and respected working with Cornelius in the little gym and know that we are on a steady positive path to making real and lasting improvements to my health and wellbeing. I can't think of a better investment to make than that.

This is a great personal training gym with dedicated, motivated trainers! I trained with George Lazarov who kicked my butt into gear every time I wanted to give up. I am in my mid 40's and nowhere near a body builder, but just wanted to learn how to train with weights and get a little leaner. George taught me how to do things the right way and which supplements work best. No selling game here like other gyms - just training. They have beautiful equipment and the place is brand new and super clean! The personal attention, knowledge and professionalism of the trainers is everything you want when seeking a trainer. The owner Svet is super friendly and responsive to anything you need. They can even train you at home - Jose Martinez is the man for the in-home training! Can't say enough good things - you're going to have to try this place out! :)
Mr. LaMont is a very knowledgeable & dedicated fitness trainer. He has gone above & beyond to put me in a position to succeed with my weight loss goals. He's a great motivator, as he does it in suttle ways to make yuu think about what you are or are not doing. He has some slogans that just make you shake your head in amazement & after you think about it, it makes perfect sense to you. He listens to my concerns & pushes me when I need a push. It has been a joy to work with him in helping me change my lifestyle to a healthy one. Best investment in myself I've ever made. Miss L. Jones
When I first met Dimitri over a year ago, I had a long way to go on my fitness journey and was a little bit intimidated about starting a training program. During our first training session I nearly passed out because I was out of shape, and I wasn’t fueling my body the way I needed. Right away Dimitri made me feel reassured that I could, and would, get stronger and better if I put in the work. He took the time to help me set my goals, discuss my likes/dislikes, and from there, created a custom plan for me to reach my goals. The program he designed relies on high-intensity intervals, coupled with strength training and kickboxing. I had never tried kickboxing before, but now it has become my favorite part of our sessions! A few months into our training I injured my ankle and thought I would need to put training on pause. Because of Dimitri’s expert knowledge of kinesiology and his extreme attention to avoiding further injury, I was able to continue on a modified program and make steady progress towards my goals. Not only is Dimitri incredibly knowledgeable about fitness and nutrition, but also he is encouraging and supportive during every step of the way. He pushes me harder than I ever knew I could push myself, and thanks to him, I have been successful in my fitness journey and boosting my confidence. With his help, I’ve lost over 25 lbs, gained lean muscle and drastically improved my strength and flexibility!
I really appreciate Brian's dedication to my personal fitness goals. We discuss them at every session and he constantly adjusts his routine to ensure my success. He's a pleasure to talk to and the hour always goes by fast. Any questions I have he's always ready with an answer. I would recommend Brian to train anyone at any fitness level with any goals in mind!!
At the start of my training I was very unfamiliar with proper use of equipment and had spent little time in the gym! Personal training was a big step out of my comfort zone as I had never followed a set routine before, Michael alleviated all of my worries and started me from the ground up! He is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to excercises that beginners can preform, and has developed a program with visible progression and results. Would highly recommend him for his attention to detail and knowledge of nutrition and excercise as well as a fun workout!
Arris is an amazing personal trainer and the perfect motivator to get off video games and screens for our 15 year old son who has special needs. He is patient but still challenges Zach to improve each session. Zach looks forward to his twice weekly work outs with Arris and has shown great results in his strength and endurance training. Highly recommended for anyone as a personal trainer no matter if you are training for a sport or simply want to get into better shape!
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!
Jones4Fitness responded to my on-line request and promptly suggested Mariam Said as a Fitness Trainer. I pay by check every five training sessions and Jones4Fitness has been very professional and prompt in their communications. VERY IMPORTANT to me was a trainer who could adapt exercises to my physical needs. I have had knee surgery with another surgery pending on my second knee and right shoulder rotator cuff issues. Since January 2014 Mariam has led me through increasingly higher levels of exercise; always checking to stay inside my pain boundaries but extending my capabilities. By constantly designing exercises around my various and changing physical needs Mariam has given me the confidence to stop protecting my sore arm and knees and move forward. I now have increased muscle strength, range and flexibility, feel energized and have also lost weight. I would recommend Mariam Said for her compassion, understanding and training expertise and Jones4Fitness for their professionalism. Thanks Pamela Rieser
I am a mom in her 40's who has struggled with weight issues and maintaining a consistent excercise routine for years. I started fitness training with Fitness Stop LLC a little over a month ago. I met with Robert for an initial consultation, and then I was paired with Garid as my trainer. Garid is great! He comes to my home twice a week. Each excercise session is different from the last, challenging, and motivating. Garid adjusts my program as needed to accommodate previous knee and shoulder injuries. He pushes me beyond what I knew I was capable of in a friendly but firm manner. He is encouraging and knowledgeable. I feel stronger already, and I am truly excited about this fitness journey. With Fitness Stop as my guide I feel my quest for healthy living is off to a great start!
Justin is very knowledgeable about all things fitness and wellness. His gym studio is amazing with just the right amenities. Im enjoying my training!
I sought Sam for a complete overhaul: weight loss, conditioning, strength training, diet, the works. From the very 1st workout he was clear about 2 things: 1 that the results I'd get would match the effort I put in. 2 that he would push me to my very limits and I'd thank him for it. Trust me he did just that! His military and athletic background gives him the knowledge to target parts of your body through different intense, creative and dynamic workouts. You reach the end of every session feeling like you gave it your all. If you are serious about a lifestyle change and are looking for someone who will motivate, inspire and challenge you all the way to a better health, waste no time and look for Sam!
First and foremost I like that Chad truly listens to what my husband and I say. For example, if we mention wanting to work on something or that some body part is having an issue, the next workout he brings in ideas based on research and reading he has done regarding what we mentioned. We learn so much about fitness from Chad and are workouts are tailored to what we have requested and are just the right level of difficulty for us.
Ken is extremely diligent & conscientious in his preparation for each training session with me. He literally does homework ahead of time & researches the best exercises & stretchesfor my injuries, such as sciatica & recovery from meniscus tear & surgeryon my left knee. He is also extremely flexible, so, despite his prep, he is able to improvise on the fly ifI am unable to performparticular exercises. He is personable & warm & makes the hour fly by. I used to hate exercising but that is becoming less & less the case working with Ken.
I've struggled with my weight for years and have hired several personal trainers in order to lose my excess weight. Out of all the trainers that I've worked with, Julia is (by far) the one whose helped me out the most. I originally hired Julia in order for her to teach me how to properly use kettlebells. I used to refer to her as my kettlebell trainer. Julia went from being my kettlebell trainer to being "my trainer." By that, I mean that of the people I worked with at the time, she was my main go-to person because she's the one I actually trusted 100%. A lot of times, most personal trainers tell you what you want to hear and what I quickly realized about Julia is that she tells you the truth even when it's not what you want to hear. Julia doesn't sugar coat, instead she tells you what you need to do in order for you to get the results you're after. Julia taught me so many different exercises using kettlebells, my own body weight, animal flow and functional training. I used to weigh over 200 pounds and so far I've lost 40 pounds. I'm 23 pounds away from my goal weight. And my body fat percentage has decreased by 12% within a matter of a few short months. I started out at a very tight size 16 and now I'm a solid size 8 (and in some brands I fit into a size 6). Julia also taught me so much when it comes to food and nutrition. I used to have to take a picture of everything I ate and I used to have to text it to her at the time that I was going to eat my meal. I noticed that this helped me make more mindful choices when it comes to food. She also gave me better food suggestions every time she noticed that what I was eating wasn't a healthy choice. The selfish part of me wishes that Julia wouldn't have moved to Washington D.C. because as it is I'm still 23 pounds away from reaching my goal weight but on the bright side, ever since Julia left I haven't hired a different trainer and I've been successfully training myself 5 days each week. I've also continued to lose weight each week by weight lifting and eating proper nutrition. What she taught me is knowledge I'll have for life. The money I spent by hiring Julia is the best investment I've ever made for myself. I'm 2.5 months away from reaching my goal weight and to me that is priceless. Before Julia left Miami she also gave me lots of tips on how to successfully maintain my goal weight once I reach that point.
True definition of a trainer!!!! I decided to do the online training program. The trainer app she uses is the best. Coach Gee is always available to answer questions, no matter how big or small. The dedication she has to her clients is very evident. Thanks to her vast knowledge of nutrition, I am more aware of my ability to become a healthier me. One of the best investments in myself I have ever made!
