I hold my decision to employ the services of Joe Policastro, founder and sole-proprietor of StrongFit LLC, as one of the best I've ever made in regards to my overall health, appearance and self-confidence. I began working with Joe in September of 2012, and was immediately impressed with his highly professional approach to helping me reach my fitness and health goals. Holding a BS of Exercise Science from the University of Cincinnati, Joe Policastro works with a wide array of individuals, and takes the time to develop a training schedule and plan based around your particular aspirations. If you wish, he also works with you to create meal plans that best coincide with your custom exercise regimen to optimize one's results. In the past year I have realized a reduction in body-fat percentage from 20% to 10%, enormous strength gains, marked improvement in endurance and stamina, increased proprioception, and a highly transformed body image. I would have never achieved these results without Joe Policastros dedication to getting me there. I would recommend the services of StrongFit LLC to anyone, regardless of age, sex, and current overall shape. Policastro is a true professional and treats everyone with the same level of care and respect, and Im certain youd find his ability to put you at ease one of the many things that sets him apart from other personal trainers.
I can't help to think back from time to time about my life before I had personal trainer. I was an average size woman that could not run a quarter of a mile or do a single pull-up. I tried 3 personal trainers before I was interoduced to Kyle Blandford. Since I had not had any luck with the 3 previous trainers I wasn't holding out much hope for this new guy. I am proud to say after are very first session I tossed out any preconceived notion's I had about personal trainers. I explained to Kyle verious goals I had and gave him a very accurate picture of the kind of shape I was in. Kyle never let me feel that my goals weren't obtainable even if I shared my own doubts out loud during training. In the weeks and months to come I would begin to see just how good of a trainer Kyle was. Not only had I lost weight I was the strongest I had ever been in my life. In November of 2016 I ran my first 1/2 marathon. I can honestly say this would have never happened without the knowledge, encouragement, dedication and personal training from Kyle Blandford. To boot I can also do countless push-ups along with 10 unassisted pull-ups. The confidence I have now is priceless - thank you from the bottom of my heart! Brooke
Katie is the BEST. I work out alot and know how to work out. I've been to a few personal trainers or dieticians over the years with no success. What Katie did for me was more important than any workout...she debunked all the myths and fad diets I was utilizing and thus not getting to goal weight. She talked about the sience behind losing weight and applied this to my diet and work outs. I only had that last stubborn 10lbs to lose and did it in less than 6 weeks. I love my life style.....not my diet. Katie taught me it's OK to have a banana or a carb. Try to eat as clean as possible and if you fall off make sure it falls in calorie range. Thus, I never feel deprived. Another important aspect Katie brings to her service is she truly cares about you as a person . She noticed I was beating myself up about my physical appearance and she taught me ways to be more positive with myself. She also taught me ways to deflect those people who try to sabotage your diet. I'm so glad I found Katie because she's helped me physically, mentally and emotionally in this journey that I will incorporate for life. THANKS Katie!!!! I feel and look AMAZING ;))))
I had just gotten engaged when I decided it was time for a change. I was terrified that I would be disappointed in my wedding photos, and in my dress shopping experience, so I knew I needed to try something different. I had attempted to loose weight before, and was successful to a point. However, I would get tired of the same routine, bland foods, and made up every excuse my hectic schedule would allow, to skip my workout or get fast food. Before I knew it, any weight I had lost, I gained back and then some. I felt like I had no clue what to do to successfully loose weight, and felt like I needed some help to get started in the right direction. I had always been really intimidated by the idea of personal trainer or fitness classes. I thought I would be way more out of shape than anyone else in the class or feel uncomfortable with one on one attention. However, that shiny new ring on my finger gave me that extra incentive to step out of my comfort zone and look for a personal trainer. I really had no clue where to start. I made a request on Thumbtack and spoke with several trainers just to see if personal training would even be a good fit for me. After meeting Josh the decision was easy. He made me feel comfortable with things I was nervous about, such as creating a meal plan I could stick to, even though I'm a very picky eater, and assured me my goals for my body were achievable. I was still extremely nervous to start my workouts, but Josh made me feel much better from the start. I've been working with Josh for over 5 months now and though I still have a long way to go, I've achieved more than I ever realized I could. When I started working out consistently I expected to loose some weight. However, I didn't expect to become stronger, leaner, have a happier attitude, more energy, more confident, and a better understanding of nutrition any my own body. I've learned so much from Josh! My entire mindset has refocused. I'm no longer only doing this for a dress, or pretty wedding photos. I'm doing this to better my entire life and thanks to Josh, so far so good :) I'm starting to see more and more improvement from myself and it feels great. I'm so happy that I made the decision to seek out a personal trainer but even more happy that I chose Reed's Wellness and Fitness Training specifically. I cannot say enough great things about Josh's approach to helping people. I could go on forever about the different things he does that makes making these lifestyle changes manageable. From specific nutrition advice, to working around injuries, or helping to strengthen muscles that caused me continual back pain, it has been truly a personalized experience that I don't see how any other trainer could do it better. I would HIGHLY recommend Reed's Wellness and Fitness Training no matter what your fitness goals are. Josh definitely knows what he is talking about and truly cares about your fitness goals. —Abbie
Derrick is a great trainer with genuine personality. I've worked with several other trainers, and I would say that Derrick has three strong areas. 1. Working with injuries - He is experienced in working with and around injuries. 2. Attention to detail - He tracks your progress and limits and builds on it. 3. Energy - Derrick has the energy and positive approach to help you to your fitness goals. If you're intimidated to start working out, Derrick will get you on track.
Jason Kelly is one of the best trainers I've ever worked with very knowledgeable and very professional would recommend him to anybody
John is really great to work with, and all of the trainers at 650 Fitness are professional and fun to work out with. I'm glad I chose 650 Fitness because I look forward to each session. I feel like I'm making great progress!
I've been working with Eric for several months and I can see great progress. Eric is a good listener and manages the personal training plan based on your goals and objectives. Mission 5 is neat and clean and rarely crowded plus a great, central location. I interviewed many personal trainers in the greater Cincinnati area and I am glad I found Eric. I strongly recommend Eric to anyone who is looking for a top notch trainer that understands nutrition, your boundaries, goals and objectives.
Yes it is wonderful having a personal trainer come to your home, but that's just the beginning. Tania is professional, respectful, kind, and warm. She creates workouts that meet your needs and also don't make you too sore. I haven't had a personal trainer do that before. She is in tune with me and knows when to push and when to back off. She's the best personal trainer I've known. I've worked with 4 others over the years.
Jessica is so great at what she does! I was very hesitant to start working with a personal trainer being that I never have before and really have never lifted weights other than machines at large gyms like Planet fitness sometimes. I’ve progressed more with her in the last couple months than I ever have. I feel great and look forward to my sessions with her each week. She offers so much more than just an hour session. She’s helped with my diet and my work outs outside of the personal training sessions as well. She will adapt to your needs and comfort level but still push and encourage you when you need it. So glad I decided to give her a shot!
I am very impressed with Travis. He was very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. He put me at ease and made me feel important by the way he took and interest in what I wanted. I have paid a lot of money in the past for personal trainers and he spent more time with me the first day than they did in weeks. I have already referred him to my friends. I know I will see results once we get started. I am very satisfied. Regina Stotler
Met with Brian for our initial introduction, very professional instructor / trainer... Had a great session and arranged for further training. The location is easy access and has everything needed for intense workouts. Brian is the type that will motivate you and push you for maximum results. I'm looking forward to the next sessions.........
He really works to what's best for you! Very adaptive to both my busy schedule and all my limits and needs. He's helped me tremendously! Fabulous trainer and nutritionist.
I hired Joe as a personal trainer sometime ago and I can say it was the best decision I have made in my lifting career. He quickly was able to help me correct my improper form and help me get a structured workout together. The guy is a genius in the gym. He really knows what he's talking about!! If your looking for a down to earth trainer with the know how.. Joe is your guy.
I am in Seneca's master class and have had him for a personal trainer too. He takes in account of your limitations and refines work outs for you. Have recommended him to others for their personal training.
John Walker is an exceptional trainer and truly cares about those he works with.
Jason is incredibly knowledgeable and great at what he does. He constantly motivates me to reach my goals from session to session and week to week. He is flexible with my hectic work schedule and very accommodating. I always leave my sessions feeling proud of my progress and excited to attend my next session. I highly recommend Jason to anyone considering working with him.
Tom is a great personal trainer. He keeps things fun and varied. I worked with him for over one year, and learned a lot about functional fitness, kettle bells, and self defense. As a female, I felt safe and respected by him, which is not something I can say about other male trainers. Whether you are a beginner who doesn't know where to start, or someone with experience who wants to take things further, I would highly recommend him.
Mitchell has been my trainer for seven years. He is, in a word, outstanding. There is no judgement, he is compassionate and "meets you where you are." If you want to get back in shape, he can do that. If you are a competitive body builder, he can train you too. His work outs are creative and well thought out for you and your individual needs and goals. He always has a variety of exercises so you don't get bored. Mitchell has seen me through several surgeries and certain exercises are off limits. I have had four surgeries on the same knee and the surgeon commented that I probably would not regain full bulk and strength in my quadricep muscle. Using creative, non-traditional exercises, Mitchell has brought my muscle back. I think the beauty of Mitchell as a trainer is with regular visits you get total body workouts with multiple approachs. I never know what he's going to have in store for me.
Jeff's personal training has transformed me into the shape I was in during my late 20's. He has adjusted the exercises and intensity as my body has progressed through the time I have been working with him. He is an excellent trainer and an even greater person.
