Ken has the unique ability to tailor his training to his clients needs and abilities, even as they change on a daily basis. I believe it is due to this that I see the results Im looking for when training with him. Im stronger, more confident, and during training Im frequently surprised to find that I can do more and better than I thought I could. Kens boot camps easily surpass any others I have tried in the past, as he provides consistent attention, guidance, and last, but not least, motivation! When training one on one, I have found that it is like second nature to Ken to adapt his training program to what each individual needs physically, and mentally, to produce the optimal results. If you are looking for a trainer to assist you in reaching your fitness goals, Ken would be my first recommendation.
To say the last year of my life has been hectic is an understatement. In October of 09, I lost my dad very unexpectedly. Then, another blow, my mom went in to the hospital for routine surgery and ended up on a ventilator and in ICU just 6 weeks after my dad passed away. After over 2 months in the hospital, she was able to come home with physical therapy and a home health nurse. (Thank God!) After all that, my family was still in the process of running my dads business as we waited for a buyer. Oh, have I mentioned that I have 2 very active boys who play several sports, a full time outside the home job and many other activities that we are involved in? Time for exercise? Um, I dont think so. Fast Food trips? You betcha! Easy, convenient and cooking was one less thing I had to deal with. Plus, I was way too busy to deal with worrying about what I should be eating and how I should be handling stress. If I swept it under the carpet, itll all go away right? Wrong! Exhaustion, illness and a few extra pounds started to sink in. The weather started to change and get warmer. The thought of having to put on a shorts or (gasp!) a swimsuit seemed like a nightmare. All the while complaining to my husband about how I dont have time get everything done in a day let alone ADD a workout. He did his best to still be understanding of what I was going through emotionally and try to help me see that exercise would help. Oh Id take a walk, try to eat a salad here and there. But it didnt really make much of a difference. Then, I saw the lifestyle changes one of my very close friends was making. Brandi was a busy mom and had an amazing transformation! She encouraged me along the way to join her, but I shrugged her off at first. How could I possibly commit to that? Then I saw her final pictures. (phenomenal!!!) It was time to do something for me. I emailed Hitch Fit the following week. I was put in contact with expert trainer James Hanton. He was very professional and agreed to meet with me before I made a decision about my plan or if I even wanted to commit to it. He was very patient and he listened to me. I was embarrassed when he asked me about my eating and exercise habits, but he never flinched or acted like I was doing anything wrong. He just listened. He asked how quickly I wanted to see results. I answered, 12 weeks., half hoping hed tell me that it was impossible. Instead he said, You can do it! After I left the initial consultation, I called my husband. He encouraged me and told me he had my back. You should do it, Andrea and I know you can. I decided to get going right away. No use it putting it off! After my first training session with James, I cried the whole way home. Not so much because I hurt from the pain of working out (well maybe a little bit) but more because I did it! I took the first steps to a healthy lifestyle and I knew from that point on I was 110% committed. After the first couple of weeks of sore muscles, I really started to enjoy the workouts. The designed meal plan was easy to follow and with a few tips from James, I even got a few new recipes to mix it up a bit. James was enthusiastic and positive every step of the way. He was flexible with my schedule if I needed to make a last minute change and he kept me on track and my eye on the prize! There were many times that I didnt think I could lift another pound, do one more push up or hold my position one more second. But I did! Just behind me Id hear Jamess infamous battle cry, GET IT! GET IT! And I pushed harder. I wanted it more and more with every pound I lost. My schedule was and is still crazy. But Ive learned to manage my time better and everything still gets done. And at the end of 12 weeks, there I was, forever changed! I dont think of this as the end of a transformation. Its just the beginning of a new lifestyle for me. I can deal with stress in better ways and make better choices. James, thank you for your encouragement and faith in me! I am truly grateful for all you have done. To my boys, thank you for your patience with me and for never complaining about a trip to the gym or for eating more veggies. (I told you we wouldnt miss pop in the house!) And to my wonderful hubby, I couldnt have done this at all without you. Thanks for making me feel beautiful every step of the way.
I started seeing Eric from a referral by my sister. I was currently doing lab testing and supplementation with my ND, and figured I would let Eric take a shot at my health issues. The first consult I overlapped with my ND, taking Eric's interpretation to her for review and 2nd opinion. Her response to his evaluation was that "he probably has more schooling, experience, and detailed knowledge about this evaluation than I do, so I think you are fine to work with him." I don't have insurance, so the cost of seeing Eric, or seeing my ND was pretty close to the same. After a slow year of testing and supplementation, we saw a few changes in the right direction. It wasn't until I finally started following his diet/exercise recommendations that the changes became much more obvious. I've always been on the "small" side for my weight, so I didn't really think my diet mattered much. Besides, I thought I ate relatively healthy anyways, and had fewer digestive symptoms after following a gluten free diet for the past year. I knew I wasn't in "optimal" health, but I didn't think his diet was necessary at first. But after a year of supplementation, he finally pushed that diet was the next step. Within just a few weeks of REALLY following his recommendations-- getting enough calories, timing of meals, walking every day, and WATER-- I could SEE a difference in my body, and felt a difference in my energy and moods. That let me know, ok ok, he's on to something. I just figured that his process was like my ND in that the blood work shows improvement but nothing I would physically see or feel a difference with. Now, almost two years later, (because of my own stubbornness in not wanting to continue this process) even though I still have some residual health issues, I also have the faith that by listening and really DOING what Eric recommends, we will be able to positively address those issues as well. Eric has helped me see my health like playing a sport. You have to commit to practicing the little things everyday, making good habits everyday, or else you will never see the progress you really are wanting to achieve. You can't be a successful athlete without practicing everyday. In the same, I can't expect to be in optimal health if I'm not willing to follow my "coaches" training recommendations on a consistent basis. When I do what he says, things work like they should...shouldn't that be enough proof for me? We will see in the next year. Regardless, Eric has shown he knows what he is doing, and has taught me to believe his ability to accurately evaluate and interpret what is needed for my optimal health...its up to me to actually follow through.
Rebecca is an amazing yoga instructor! She is so conscientious in giving the best instruction, making certain the atmosphere is calming and positioning is correct to be beneficial. I highly recommend Rebecca as a fitness trainer; she is extremely positive and has a fantastic temperament!! I was amazed how she helped my breathing while exercising!
I've been having a great time training with Seth! We decided early on my focus would be strength and endurance training; Seth took the time to gauge my fitness level in our first week of working out, and built a plan for me to follow toward my goals. He prioritizes form in our exercises and makes sure I avoid developing bad habits; always attentive, he constantly gives me feedback during our sessions, and offers plenty of advice and answers to my questions. Every session, he balances safety with my desire for progress, and helps me hit my limits without going too far. I only have one complaint: he can't take away the soreness I feel on days after our workouts! ;) I have a work schedule that changes monthly, but Seth is really good about being flexible; his rates are also quite fair, and you get your money's worth. Go ahead, try working with him, and you'll see what I mean!
knowledgeable trainer, top-notch facilities
Marco is a great and personalized trainer. Needed a trainer for my 16 yr. old son who is a swimmer, so he could get good dryland strength training to get stronger. We were with him a little over a month(schedule changes on our end made us unable to continue) and saw drastic improvements in strength and flexibility. Marco came to our house late at night after swim practice to meet our needs. When my son outgrew this he met us at the gym, once again late at night, fitting into our schedule. I would recommend Marco for anyone seeking individualized training, he is very professional and courteous.
My kids, Wyatt (14) and Reagan (12) run competitively and play soccer competitively. Tony has worked with them this past Winter and the results are very noticeable. They have both gained strength, become more explosive, and are less injury prone because of the training Tony has provided twice a week over the past 3 1/2 months. Tony is very knowledgeable and does a great job of motivating and educating young athletes.

I have been working with Jeff for 3 weeks. I contracted him as a personal trainer and he has exceeded my expectations. The first time we met he pointed out some strength deficits I was not even aware of and has been working with me to improve those. He adjusts the workouts to my needs each week and always encouraging. I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone looking into a personal trainer.

My training philosophy is based on the fact that a person can never stop improving. The body is a unique machine that needs to be maintained. It is our responsibility and duty to do the best we can with the body we've been given. It is my goal as a personal trainer to enable each individual to work at his or her own potential. I will accomplish this by teaching technique and proper body mechanics. - Wil McCoy

I started in the fitness industry as a lanky 119 lbs. Im a 23-year-old who did not only want to build size and strength, but I also truly wanted to gain as much knowledge as possible in personal fitness. I have been training with my company, S&D Fitness since 2011. I took a brief change of location, working as a personal fitness trainer with Maximus Fitness & Wellness (North Topeka) for just under a year. I began training in martial arts in 2009, and I incorporated that into my personal workouts, starting in 2011 when I joined Topeka's United Martial Sciences and learned from the best fitness and martial arts minds I have ever known. Currently, I have a Great Life membership, which has gym locations at Berkshire (45th and Gage Blvd.), YWCA (12th and Van Buren St.), and my favorite location to train, Western Hills (21st and Auburn Rd.) I can provide you entry as my client to these locations without any cost to you. I also have another training location at United Martial Sciences (6th and Kansas Ave.). In addition, I am a certified sponsored athlete and personal trainer with Complete Nutrition, which allows all my clients discounts on any and all supplements. Thank you, Drew J. Williams
