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.
I've been working with Jaime for almost a year. I didn't need to lose weight, but pretty much just needed to get in shape, get stronger and aim for that "toned" look that so many women are looking for. I've put on a couple pounds (again, I was too skinny, thats what I was looking for) of muscle. What is great about Jaime is that he listens to what you're looking for. So many trainers don't and assume everyone wants to lose weight. I keep asking to go heavier and heavier with the weights. He reigns me in so I don't hurt myself, but I'm now squatting 70 lbs, rowing 35 lbs, 35 lbs on each arm on chest presses (1 set only), and can do 20 pushups without cheating/assistance. For a little weakling, that a year ago I struggled with using 10 pound weights...I'm quite proud of what I can do now! My fiance has noticed my new "toned" look and comments on it all the time! :) Ladies, you want that toned look? Lift as heavy as you can. I am definitely not big, just getting tighter, stronger looking arms and legs. When you sign up with Jaime he gives you a heart rate monitor that you wear every time you workout. It helps to see how many calories you burned, average heart rate, and the time spent on the workout. He also gives you access to a personal online FitLog which you fill in with the info from your heart rate monitor and tracks your weekly progress. You can see where you met your weekly goals..and the weeks where you didn't. Oops. :) Jaime is helpful in that I was topping out on what I could do without a weight bench and he helped in finding me a good weight bench. He also went to Dick's for me and got me the 35 lb weights so I didn't have to cart them out of the store myself. And no, he's not a weirdo trainer trying to pick up on women. That was my biggest fear in using a personal trainer. He's just a nice guy trying to help his clients! He'll do it for his male clients too! I've had a good experience with Jaime. What I like best is that he listens to what you want and will customize your workouts to what you are asking for so you can work on your personal goals!
Elin and Kris are great. I started about only 2 months ago and the results I have seen have the best I have ever had ever. I have been through countless trainers and group classes and the amount of attention they give and the way they are able to gradually work your entire body out without sacrificing quality is the best I have ever seen. It is an experience you have to go through with patience to believe. Very hard to explain as the results are unreal. Very unique methodology. To date, they have exceeded my expectations, and look forward to more sessions as they have sold me not only on their methods, but more importantly on the lifestyle. Lastly I will say, Elin is impeccable in terms of following up. He really cares about his clients. Kris is the best trainer I have ever had as he genuinely cares about you and shows up with a smile day in and day out. He was so great, I referred him to my future sister in law before her big day! I can't speak highly enough about these guys. They are the real deal!
I first started working out with Cornelius about one year ago, after my girlfriend encouraged me to give personal training a try. I used to be one of those guys who thought personal trainers weren't necessary for a good workout, so I was hesitant at first but I followed my girlfriend's advice and signed up for a few sessions with Cornelius. After our first workout, I knew I'd be coming back for more. When I first started training I was WEAK, even though I had been jogging regularly. I had rarely stretched or worked on building strength. I also wasn't eating well. Cornelius immediately recognized these holes in my training regimen and started developing workout and diet plans to help me build strength at a healthy pace. Due to my lack of stretching, many of my muscles and joints were incredibly tight but Cornelius' taught me exercises and stretches that would help me build strength and loosen that tightness without causing injury. Thanks to Cornelius, I feel stronger and look healthier. The girlfriend who got me started with training has even pointed out improvements to my energy levels and confidence. The fitness plans Cornelius has built around my personal needs have been perfect. Throughout our workouts, he has been very relaxed and great to talk to but he also knows when to push me to workout harder. I look forward to each of our sessions, and I strongly recommend him to others.
Training with Jenise (BodyByJenise) has changed my life for the better! From the past two months I've worked out with her, I've definitely seen a huge difference in my body, eating habits, and overall energy. I use to workout in college but never remained consistent. I ended up gaining a lot of weight when I got out of college and never lost it. I seeked out services on thumbtack and received quite a few offers but decided to work with Jenise based on her experience, passion, and personal experience with weight loss and assisting clients. Boy, am I happy that I did! From my very first interaction with her, I knew she would be able to whip me into shape. I was already motivated when she walked into the gym (her body was stunning!) She listens and pushes you to reach your goal and puts her clients’ needs before anything else. Her ultimate goal is to not only help you to reach your weight/body fat goal but to also encourage you to have a better and healthy lifestyle going forward. If a workout may feel awkward for you, she finds another exercise to make you more comfortable while targeting the same area of the body. Because of Jenise, I am now consistent and excited about working out. Her passion for life and health is infectious, and she really drives you to make a lifestyle change that works best for YOU. She helps you navigate what food works for you, and those that don't. I never feel defeated after a workout with Jenise. She is motivating, positive, and understanding of where you are (physically) that day. I look forward to every session and never thought I would wake up every morning looking forward to our workouts. I highly recommend reaching out to her! I am so happy that I did!
I started training with Svet a couple of months ago and love it! He is pushes me just enough to get me to keep going without overdoing it. I usually give up pretty quickly and I was surprised with my progress. I was not only looking to get my self back into shape, but I also wanted to change my eating habits. I always struggled with random cravings and always gave in. He was able to help me with adjusting my diet and nutrition, providing information on different supplements and meal plans to keep me on track. Always a bonus!! Another thing I really liked was that we could either train at the gym at the community center or at my townhouse. They will really go where you want to go. Svet and his trainers know what they are doing and know a lot of great exercises, and you can tell that they love what they do! All in all I'm definitely giving a 5 out 5 and would highly recommend this team.
Convenience...Expertise...Results: I was looking for a personal trainer to get back into shape. I work in an Emergency Department with a schedule that has me going from a 7a shift to an 11p shift to a 3p shift all in the same week! Despite this crazy schedule, Arris has ALWAYS been able to schedule a time that was convenient for me! He was interested in learning about my health issues and my goals. As a matter of fact, once I got started, he helped me to loose 1-2 pounds each week! He designed a program specifically tailored to help me to get on the road to achieve my goals. He made modifications to my exercise regimen so that I was able to workout efficiently without concern that I would sustain further damage to my dodgy knee or exacerbate my plantar fasciitis. During one of my sessions, I mentioned to him that I was recently started on insulin. He listened to my concerns and, at our next session, it was quite clear that he had researched DM, as well as strategies to help me cope with fluctuations in my blood sugars that could occur with exercise. He has even offered to go grocery shopping with me to find foods that would help control my blood sugars, as well as give me energy. On the occasion when my schedule would not permit me to complete a session, Arris e-mailed me with a regimen that could be done at home. I highly recommend Arris Kontos and TwentyFourTraining without reservation!
I've been training with Derek for just over two years and can honestly say the man has changed my life. His knowledge of physical fitness, nutrition and the balance of life surpasses every trainer I have ever worked with. He gives you the knowledge to take your investments beyond your time with him. Highly recommend working with him on any level.
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
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!
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!
I came to Brian in January of 2015. I have struggled with my weight, self image, and self confidence my entire life. At 42 years old, 5 foot 7, and 276 pounds I was desperately out of shape, weak, and in need of guidance. Every attempt I'd made in my adult life to lose weight and keep it off was miserable failure. I'd gained and lost hundreds of pounds. If you can think of a fitness gimmick, I've tried it. NutriSystem, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Beach Body, Herbalife, all of them! None worked long term. Today, 5 months after starting with Brian I have lost 30 pounds, gotten incredibly stronger in all measurable ways, lost 6 inches off my waist, and I feel amazing! Brian teaches you that the key to long term success is to build strength to support your bodies efforts to be lean and fit. He doesn't promise any quick fixes or miracle cures. It is dedication and hard work that get you to your goals. Every session is packed from start to finish with exercises that keep me moving, burning fat, and gaining strength! No excuses, no escapes...you come to him to get results and he will give those to you as long as you put in the work! For the first time in my life I'm excited about my body, the way it is transforming and the changes I can see in myself every single week. Do yourself a favor...if you need help to get to the fitness level you want, then call Brian...talk to him, meet him for a workout and see what can happen with experienced guidance at your side! The results will amaze you...they do me! --Donno Cole Fairfax, VA
The best at what he does. Fit sculptors lives, breathes, and eats fitness. Not "feeling it" today? Just wait till you get a random text mid morning with just the inspiration you need. If Dimitar weren't such an awesome physical trainer, I have no doubt he'd be a motivational speaker or life coach. Working out with Dimitar is never dull, because he's constantly switching up your routine, and exposing you to new things. I see a bunch of trainers working with other people, and I can honestly say none of them are as great and encouraging as Dimitar. While those other guys are just counting off reps, Dimitar is putting in work WITH you. He'll run alongside you, get down and join you for burpees (while talking, no problem), and somehow keep you going till the end of your session. Whether or not you have the strength to walk home afterwards, is on you.
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.
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.
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 wanted to write you about my AMAZING experience that I have at Fitness Stop in Falls Church, Virginia. I have been training with them since February and I can’t believe what a transformation it has made, both physically and mentally. I continuously receive compliments about my weight loss which consequently has lead to my self esteem soaring. I owe all this to the trainers at Fitness Stop's great attitude, professionalism, and caring for their clients. My goals are steadily being met. I feel so much lighter and stronger than I have in a long time. I recommend Fitness Stop to anyone of any age group who is trying to lose weight, regardless the amount, and to those who just need get physically stronger to be at their healthiest. Take my word, it is worth it. You are worth it. Thank You, Sara Tabatabaei
Sam Turay is a great personal trainer; he is highly attentive to helping his clients reach their personal goals through educating clients on the proper techniques of exercise and eating healthy. My first session he asked me about my eating habits, exercising style, he then in turn taught me about using proper form, worked with me while doing the exercises and instructioned how I could maximize my workout experiences even on days I wasn't working with him. He's down to earth, honest, and conducts business with integrity which is definately a plus for me. Any chance I get, I tell anyone I know who wants to reach their weight loss goals about him. If you're looking for someone who will be encourage you and support you...he's the man!
Barb and I have been friends for a few years now. I've had the honor to witness her being a wonderful wife and amazing mom. Recently, I've had the privilege of working with her on this awesome 'getting fit' journey! This journey is not mine alone, she's with me every step of the way! There are many great trainers out there to work with, but, in my opinion, what sets Barb separate from all the rest is her sincere desire to help others achieve their fitness goals. She's had her own personal struggles and isn't afraid to share with those that will benefit from knowing that she has walked the same walk in her own life years ago. When I was ready to make the change with my own health and happiness, Barb was the only one that I would turn to. And I'm so very happy that I did!! Barb and I have worked together for over 2 months and I've learned so much from her. She's not only created a workout that is specific to me and my physical needs, but is thorough in her explanation and very detailed. We do not live in the same town or state, so we do everything via Skype, texts, FB messages, and phone calls. Shes literally only a phone call away. Barb is available 24/7, and I know this to be true, because I've needed a little push here or there and she's never failed to give me exactly what I need to get me through a workout or a difficult meal decision. I know she has many clients, but she has a way of making me feel like I'm her only one! And I'm sure that's how it is with each and every client, because that's just the type of person she is. She's sincere, dedicated, fun, and knowledgeable. Barb is the complete package when looking for knowledge, direction, and support. I've nicknamed her the "nice" Jillian Michaels, because she pushes you to a level that you just don't think you can reach, all with a smile on her face. Because, she knows that you CAN reach that level and more. I'm eternally grateful for her and once you work with Barb, you'll feel the exact same way as I do!
I've worked with Chad for over 5 months now and he has done a great job as my trainer. He is a great motivational trainer very helpful in and out the gym. He has also given great nutritional advice to me.
Justin is very knowledgeable about all things fitness and wellness. His gym studio is amazing with just the right amenities. Im enjoying my training!
