"He's friendly, patient and attentive, not at all pushy, abnegating, self-absorbed or sleazy as some other trainers are apt to be labeled. I, for one, was surprised when he made it clear that he's ok with me taking multiple breaks in a session. I'm taking lessons from him as a personal trainer so we're doing the standard muscle endurance and conditioning. You know, the squat, push-up, sit-up, pull-up thing. (For those of you wondering he also has free weights and a bench calling your name.) But he's incorporated the teaching of Muay Thai self defense (Muay Thai is more about attack than defense though but some say the best defense is a strong offense) techniques in addition to the Thai language in his training. I love this because it gives the personal training concrete practical use and it makes the whole process fun, engaging and instructive. There's variation every day so you're not going to get bored of running around in circles everyday. More importantly, in terms of physicality, he walks the walk. He's clearly fit. He shows you exactly how he wants you to do an exercise, he does it with you a few times, redirects you when you are wrong and challenges you to take it to the next level when you are right. Basically, all you have to do is communicate with him and he'll oblige. Great guy, great trainer. I'm going back. But really...if you're on here reading this, what do you really have to lose?"

"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."
