Top Rated Weight Lifting Trainers Around Ashburn, VA
Robert Armstrong is a terrific personal trainer-- knows when to push and when to back off! He works well with all types of people -- male/female, young/old! Will help you loose weight and/or get fit. He is especially good with middle school/high school age kids who want to improve their athletic performance or begin a weight lifting regimen. Of the 5 boys in my 15 year old's work out group -- 3 are committed to college programs and 1 is playing D3 football. A fourth just earned best football work ethic award for his high school.
I've been training with Elin for about 2 months now and hands down he's the best trainer I've ever used. His teaching principle is based on building a strong foundation and from these core movements to gradually move on to more advance techniques and forms of training. Needless to say this is exactly what I was looking for as I have had other trainers who only encouraged me to lift heavy weights even when I clearly explained that I had no experience exercising (let alone weight lifting). It's a miracle I didn't injure myself. From the first work out on Ive been completely confident in the things I'm doing and never once felt like I was being given more than I could handle; however this by no means states that he's going to go easy on you. If you're a newbie its critical you facilitate perfect form and not build bad habits, by choosing Elin I guarantee you'll have that and so much more. I work full time but still manage to commute 4 hours round trip on bus and metro to attend my Saturday sessions and will happily continue to do so. Elin you're awesome!!!
I work out with Chris twice a week working on strength training. Chris set me up with a structured weight lifting plan as well as dieting info. Chris is very committed to his clients improvement. He is always by my side during training giving me positive motivation. When I leave I feel great and can't wait to meet up with Chris for the next training session. Chris your the BEST!
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!
Wilma tailored weight lost programs for me two years in a row in 2011 & 2012 for 3-4 months each time before I had a special event. I successfully lost weight & exceeded weight loss expectations under her tutelage which enabled me to shatter goals. I look forward to working out with Wilma again and learning more about latest trends/tips/tools in order to best meet my weight loss goals in 2013. Thank you so much!!! Jacqueline
First, what a great guy! I'm a female and always felt comfortable. Brian has so many different ideas and techniques I never get bored. I'm training for a specific event and within 30 days every number improved. I did my cardio on my own and did strength training, core workouts, legs, lifting, etc. I highly recommend.
Laurie was a wonderful motivator. I was working out and doing what I thought I needed to do to gain strength, muscle and lose weight but nothing helped. While ultimately success is up to each person and how well you follow the advice, Laurie gave me the tools to lose 15lbs and 11inches in 3 months. More than that, she gave me the tools to maintain my weight loss for the last year. I highly recommend her services!
I worked out with Svet when I weight 270 lbs and within a few months I got down to 230 lbs thanks to Svet and his intense workouts. Couldn't have done it without his expert knowledge and help. Thanks Svet!
Sean is incredible to work with. His background in NPC competitions and gymnastics give him an edge over any personal trainer I have worked with EVER. He tailors individualized workouts geared to achieve realistic goals whether it’s weight loss or training for a competition. I have noticed amazing results already. These workouts and nutrition advice are very effective and he is committed to helping you achieve results. I recommend him to anyone at any fitness level. Phenomenal Trainer!
I love Gee! Not only did she help me get back to my pre baby weight, but also a body I've never seen before training with her. Plus she's so funny! I hated working out but I knew I had to do something. She's so fun and keeps the workouts interesting plus she pushes you like no other, I fell in love with the gym. Me. Yes me. I actually WANT to workout. Thanks Coach Gee!
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
Ray is a consumate professional who knows how to take you to the next level. I've been lifting weights for 20 years and had hit a plateau, Ray provided me new routines and nutritional advice that allowed me to reach new heights. Highly recommended!

To put it succinctly for those that don’t want to read this whole review..... Julian, as my personal trainer, is phenomenal! He is super knowledgeable, well trained, educated, I would say an expert about training the body to get the results you want. He has a great energy, enthusiasm, and passion for getting you in the best shape you can be! I can't recommend him highly enough. I chose to work with Julian, personal trainer and owner of Prepare for Performance, cause he listened to what my goals were and his approach to over all strengthening fit with me. I love how he mixes up the workouts always focus on engaging my core in everything we do. I have never really exercised or been into fitness because weight was never an issue, until I hit my mid 40s. Feeling really fatigued, bad posture, headaches, gravity.... Working with Julian is so important to me because able to judge my abilities and push them just the right amount. He plans the workout so that I'm pushing my limits every session. While I whine and complain he gets me through it. Even with all the technology, YouTube ect...these are not workouts I could do on my own. Every session is different, challenging, and feels wholly customized so I may reach my goals. Working out with Julian may be my best decision of the year. My posture is so much improved, I have upper body strength *for the first time in my life*, I am able to do things I would never have done before and feel great (while I am still not thrilled with how I look,there are improvements, I actually will take my shirt off and swim. god, I missed swimming!) Working out is still hard and something I would never do if it were not for Julian. He is fun, engaging, smart, and a “hard a#$” when he needs to be. If you are wanting to feel better about yourself, feel stronger, happier, and joining the gym just does not do it for you...Julian will get you into shape!!
Ki works out with me on an ongoing basis. The focus is on keeping my muscles strong with a combination of weights and cardio. She works with my schedules and comes to either my home or my local gym. Even when I need some flexibility in my schedule, she works with me.
I just started training and I already love it. He pushes me but also makes me push myself and I feel like I will get the results that I really want by continuing with him. He has a great website that not all trainers on here had and he I think he knows what he's talking about even more than the most professional trainers! He is the perfect trainer!
I worked with Jaime for over a year and a half. He helped me realize a long-time goal of incorporating weight lifting into my lifestyle. I was a leaner guy looking to bulk up, and was basically starting from scratch. Jaime worked with me to customize a workout routine that drastically changed how I feel about my body. The best thing for me is the longterm health benefits his routines gave me, but people commenting on how good I look is also nice. Jaime brings a lot of knowledge to the field of personal training which is plagued with misinformation, but his biggest assets are his personality and passion. He brings an energy to the workouts that is palpable, and he truly cares about the people he works with. He is doing what he loves with his life and it shows. I ultimately stopped working with Jaime only because I finished grad school and had to go back to work. Once my schedule becomes settled I hope to work with him again to reach fitness goals that once seemed unattainable.
Training with Michael has been a great experience. From mapping out goals to working through sessions, he has kept me motived since the beginning! Having my right hip scoped back in 2014, I had been hesitant in getting back to doing certain exercises (squats, leg press, knee-ups, etc..) that would aggravate my hip. Michael worked on what I felt was comfortable in the beginning. He introduced stretches that opened up the hip joints. Focused on proper form (which is exactly what I had wanted to learn) when weight lifting. Within two months; I was able to deadlift, squat, and do jumping lunges without having hip issues. I'm very satisfied with my results after working with Michael, I plan to keep working with him in the future. -Altan A.
Amazing personal trainer. Vast knowledge of both calisthenics and resistance training, and incorporates both into a well rounded training regimen. His guidance helped me reduce my body fat by 15% and improve my strength and lifting technique. Professionalism and motivational skills are also top notch.
Shawn is great!!! He arrived early, was very, very professional. He had the latest equipment and started off with weight, BMI, body fat, measurements, etc. Having trained for years in Miami, I always had excellent trainers and since living here this hasn't been the case, that is until I met Shawn. Looking forward to working with him. Recommend him highly.
Ken trains me three times per week. During that time, we warm up, lift weights, use the TRX, use body weight and stretch. Ken is organized and friendly. He is a good motivator and gets me to reach my exercise goals such as learning to plank.
