When I was searching for a personal trainer in my area I discovered Craig. I am pleased to say that after just a few days working with him he showed me his dedication and thrive to be my personal trainer. Ive noticed immediate results and he is very good about challenging you to beat your current best records. After three months, I noticed upper body strength for the first time in my life (I have never been able to do push ups before now). And his attention to my formerly fractured arm he helped get me past it (I now have range of motion I havent had in years). He checks up on you after doctors appointments to find out their advice so that he can change your workout to be safe accordingly. He listens to you when you tell him something doesnt feel right, hurts, or is stressing; and he changes the game plan while still achieving the end goal. He is a hard working trainer that knows how to push you hard, but not over the edge. Incredible, trainer, coach, and human being. He has three characteristics that make him the best personal trainer. They are knowledge, attitude and character.
Regarding Knowledge: Craig takes the time to assess your strengths and weaknesses. Hes an expert in how the body works, so the exercises he has me do always make sense for my goals. Were always doing something different. You will see results and you wont be disappointed. But the awesome part is he keeps you motivated. He believes in you when you dont think you can and he lets you know it. He handles everything you throw at him with incredible grace and optimism. ( I know because Ive thrown it all, from injured shoulder, knee, foot, abdomen, and pulled muscles). He just doesnt give up on you. And his optimistic daily notes help keep you focused on the goal.
Craigs attitude and energy are similarly fantastic. Its contagious. He has a motivating effect which is exactly what you want in a trainer. Craig also knows the right things to say to keep you moving and trying your hardest. It is positive reinforcement at its best. The result is a workout with a far higher out put than you could get on your own.
Craig inside (character) is a solid as his outside. He believes that each of us have limitless potential. This too is motivating, and up-lifting. It makes for great coaching. Contrast that to some trainers/coaches/managers, etc. Who try to motivate by breaking you down. Craig is the opposite of that.
Bonus: Craig keeps in regular contact between sessions with texts/emails or phone calls to keep you motivated and on track. He is constantly reminding me to combine my diet with my workout. As he says, you cannot out exercise a bad diet. And he genuinely tries to follow up and make sure you are making good choices at meal times.
Finally, If you are looking to invest in your good health, look no further than Craig. Ive never exercised harder, but he makes each workout unique. Not only is he a great trainer, hes an even better person. Im PROUD to say, Ive lost 30 pounds with Craigs professional training and compassionate support and I live a much healthier life style.
Thank You Craig,
