I have been training with Coach Kyie for almost three years and all three years have been a great experience. Coach Kyie takes every one of his clients personal goals very seriously and helps everyone not only reach his goals but exceeds them. In 2012 I attended a full time police academy and to prepare for the physical training I knew I had to do more then your basic arms and back day or just go for a run. I also needed something that was going to be challenging and rewarding. I heard about Crossfit and that a lot of military, police, and fire use this training. However, as I'm sure many people feel like I did joining a new gym or a group work out it can be intimidating. I was introduced to Coach Kyie and told him what I was preparing for. He took me under his wing and got me ready for training. I felt so comfortable working with him and eventually with his groups clients. It was a welcoming feeling and it didn't matter if you couldn't perform a move or run as fast as the next person. Coach Kyie will help you improve each session. And the best part of Coach Kyie is he will not let you do more then you possibly can even if you think you can ... He plays it safe and doesn't let anyone get hurt. If you are looking for a gym where you can better your health and wellness then the New England Fitness Compound with Coach Kyie is the place to be. You will enjoy your work out and get the results! Oh yah FYI the cost of the coaching is extremely reasonable! I hope to see you at the NEFC @0600!! 😀👮👍💪
Steve is very knowledgeable. He knows how to listen and communicate information. He cares about people achieving their greatest potential. I went to Steve for a specific type of massage called cross friction. We went over my concerns and how he could help me. I also had a full Swedish massage, it was very relaxing. As a physical fitness trainer and massage therapist I would say he is top notch.
Lou is a great trainer. He makes the workout challenging but still fun and effective. He is EXTREMELY knowledgable about fitness and nutrition . You should hire him; you wont regret it.
I sought out personal training because I was overweight, out of shape, & when I went to the gym I had no idea what I was doing. I was worried I wouldn't be able to afford it & also worried that personal training was more suited to athletes or bodybuilders. I posted on this site, & got some responses very quickly. Johnny was one of the first to contact me, & we worked out a plan I could afford which he felt would help me achieve my objectives. In two and a half months I lost nearly thirty pounds with a meal plan Johnny devised, meeting with him once a week, & doing workouts he designs & monitors on my own. I am in better health overall & feel more confident at the gym. I am still working with Johnny & feel my decision to do personal training with him was a wise decision. Johnny has a studio he shares with other trainers, & it's clean & never crowded. He has a lot of knowledge about fitness, health, & exercise. He varies my routines so I'm always learning new things. He works with bodybuilders as well as couch potatoes like myself, & I highly recommend him as a trainer.
After 1 month at Simply Fit I have lost 8 inches! Nancy creates workouts specifically for you based on your level of physical fitness and capabilities. She challenges me to work a little harder each time and has the flexibility to modify workouts based on your needs.
I signed on with Will around the 7th of July and began regular training sessions with him on the 15th of that month. By the end of August (6 or 7 weeks later), I had lost 15 pounds and completely revamped my diet. Will's approach focused on 3 areas: what you eat, how you train while you're with him and how you train when you're not. I believe my sessions with Will were so successful because he refused to listen to excuses for why I hadn't been working or eating properly and because he constantly pushes you to go further and try harder than you think you can. After every session, my body was sore but I felt like I had accomplished something. I don't really have anything negative to say. The sessions aren't cheap but they are in line with what one pays elsewhere. Also, Will has a pretty mediocre taste in music but he makes up for it with his taste in television shows and movies. Overall, I'd definitely give him 5 out of 5 stars. There is no way that I would have been so successful in putting my health back on track without Will and I've already signed up for another set of sessions with him.
Love working with Mica! I was working out at equinox and was paying way too much for training. The trainers seemed to be quite novice as well, nothing compared to her. I needed someone to kick my butt and help me with my nutrition and she did just that by starting me with an alternate food list. Training with her is the best part of my day. She's amazing.
I started training with Billy in Jan 2017 after losing 50 pounds on Weight Watchers. I interviewed other trainers at the time but never found a good fit. Upon meeting Billy for the first time, I was immediately impressed with his knowledge and experience about nutrition, strength training, anatomy, and overall fitness. He is an excellent listener and employs routines and strategies that support his client's goals / needs. Little did I know that I would reach my goal weight (lose another 30 lbs for total 80 lb loss), succeed in strength training taking me to new personal records that I never dreamed of (deadlifts, etc...), firm up body and run my very first 5K within 6-7 months of starting to work with Billy. I have had a few injuries (shoulder, back) from extracurricular sports that have required physical therapy. Billy understands PT's approach, is happy to communicate & build plans with them, and then modifies our routine to support PT objectives while continuing to stay on a path supporting strength training and overall fitness. I plan to continue working with New School Fitness / Billy on a regular basis (training for "Tough Mudder" or possibly "Spartan" - can't believe it - so amazing). After such a successful, and fun, first year training with Billy, I am happy to highly recommend "New School Fitness".
There are not enough words to explain how happy I am to have found Sean as my personal trainer at Always Strength Fitness. I have been working with him for ~ 4 months (3X a week for 30-60 min sessions) and I don't plan on stopping (unless Sean or I leave Boston :)) I found Sean on Thumbtack (after dealing with a few terrible Thumbtack trainer) and decided to "hire" him & continue our sessions for a number of reasons: 1) Sean has an Incredible Work Ethic and is an All Around Nice Guy- Sean is fully present during our sessions (not on his cell phone or taking selfies or multi-tasking). It helps me be accountable for showing up 100% during each session so I get THE MOST out of each and every workout. 2) Deeply Knowledgeable about Fitness, how the body works/functions, dealing with previous ailments & injuries, mind-body connection, etc - I had two injuries that I was working through and serious muscle imbalances that were getting in the way of being able to advance my strength training progress. Due to our workouts, I have consistently gotten stronger mentally & physically on all levels. Every day activities like carrying my 40 lbs son down a hallway with two giant bags of groceries to doubling the # of Harvard stadium steps in 30 min vs. when I first started working with Sean-- all have seen drastic improvements (night & day) in my endurance and strength. My body is no longer breaking down because Sean is helping me regain strength where I need it, building up strength where I can, and guiding me step-by-step to be even stronger. 3) The coolest part about our workouts is how strong mentally I've grown through our sessions, which has benefits for me in all aspects of my life. When I started working with Sean, I was super insecure about my "lack of fitness, strength, and ability"-- I was never an athlete or active as a kid. Every time I work with Sean and start a new workout, I swear on my life, before the reps, that there is absolutely no way I can complete the workout that he has laid out for me. But somehow with his guidance, positive reinforcement, and million-dollar smile, I do-- even with more reps, more weight, more difficulty, etc. I find myself mentally becoming stronger with each work out and being able to apply that new mental strength to everyday stresses and challenges at work and life. 3) Convenient location & logistics - Always Strength Fitness is conveniently located in Brighton/Allston with covered parking. They have all the equipment and tools to give you a comprehensive workout, regardless of your goals. Finding a time to train with Sean was easy and he's pretty easy to get a hold of and coordinate logistics, etc week to week, which I appreciate. There are definitely so many other reasons why you should work with Always Strength Fitness-- the ones I listed above are unique to what I was looking for, which I 100% found in working with Sean. If you have other goals that maybe I didn't list in my review, I am pretty sure Sean or any of the trainers with Always Strength Fitness will find a way to help you reach them without a sweat.
Annie was truly amazing! I am a swimmer and her training and nutrition advice immensely impacted my strength and endurance. She has so much knowledge. If you’re looking for a hardworking, knowledgeable, and passionate trainer, Annie is the person for you!
The Mandeville Method is like no other program I've tried it encompasses all aspects of training from strength conditioning and cardio. I've tried other programs that don't have a more complete program. If all around fitness and well being is your goal The Mandeville Method is worth a look
Ryan was my personal trainer for 2 months and then my group trainer for an additional 2 months. I came to him in order to get back in the rhythm or working out, having been out of the gym for a couple years. He provided me with a personalized workout/nutrional log completely tailored to my needs. He was an excellent motivator for me in and outside the gym, consistently challenging me and checking up on me outside of working hours. Ryan is passionate about fitness and nutrition and is a true professional. I have and will continue to recommend his services to anyone, at any level of fitness, looking for training or nutritional guidance.
Janey is amazing. His enthusiasm, professionalism and fun attitude completely changed my perspective on personal training. For less than two months, I have developed so much confidence on weight training/ interval training and really started to see results of my training. My legs have gotten much stronger and I have lost two pounds of fat in exchange for muscles. Most importantly, I have developed a habit of going to the gym even outside our personal training sessions. I think this is the most important part of this experience and I hope to keep up this habit for the rest of my life. Thank you Janey!
The trainers with MC Conditioning are very professional and knowledgeable. Their workout routine is rigorous yet custom to my fitness needs. The cost is very reasonable. Thanks to these trainers, I will have a beach body in a short time. I look forward to the five-day weekly workouts.
Jim helped me feel confidant and healthy for my summer wedding! I am an exercise obsessed 27 year old. When I came to Jim I was bored of my routine and looking for an extra push to feel my best for my upcoming wedding. Jim taught me a new skill set using weights and interval cardio training. For years I was only focused on cardio, never aware of the toning and strength that weight training provides. Jim was an excellent teacher, he was flexible, knowledgable and prepared. I would recommend him to anyone no matter your needs and fitness experience.
Working out with Micah and next level fitness has been the best workout program I have ever been on. Within the semi personal training Micah works with each person to help them achieve their goals of weight loss and/or toning. The sessions are tough but fun and micah is always there to support you and help you achieve the best results possible. I have never felt better in such a short period of time.
Dennis is by far the most supportive and motivating coach out there! Not only does he push me past my limits, but he constantly reminds his clients how awesome they are and how much success they are achieving. I have really enjoyed working out with Dennis for the past 6 years and this had created my love for the gym and has inspired me to get my personal training certification. Dennis is the best of the best and I don't think I could train with anyone else. I have recommended him to anyone who asks me about training and will continue to do so!
I have recently just started with Alan, to get my fitness levels up and to lose over all body fat. I have been avoiding getting back in shape the last 6 -12 months as my fitness levels are quite bad. I explained my worries to Alan and he has been great helping me slowly get my body moving again. Would highly recommend as he alters the workouts to your body and figure out what works best for you personally
I met with Mark to ensure that I was lifting weights with the proper form. He was very polite, professional and gave me a lot of great tips and pointers. I was also able to put together a good workout routine from his feedback and advice. He even went the extra mile and helped me put together a good diet. Would definitely recommend Mark as a personal fitness trainer.
Tom Doherty is an amazing personal trainer. Over the past 25 years, I have sought personal training expertise from at least 10 different individuals and interviewed twice as many. Sometimes, I was looking for help to tone and build strength. Other times, I was seeking a training program for a particular race or to participate in a particular athletic adventure (e.g. mountain climbing or a road bike tour). Over the years, I discovered that most trainers were basically offering the same thing, but maybe with a few different machines or a few different exercises. Tom’s skill set is one I have not come close to finding in any other professional. In addition to his bachelors degree in exercise physiology and experience working with college athletes as well as golfers, he has pursued extensive ongoing training in functional exercise and has developed a significant expertise in corrective exericse. He can recognize specific weaknesses or areas where the body is compensating for other places where it shouldn’t be. He has helped me recover from countless minor issues with pain or injury as well as significant issues with back pain which had sidelined me from most athletic activities. He loves what he does and it shows. He is funny, engaging and has a range of interests and experiences that are inspiring and thought provoking. He is knowledgeable about overall fitness as well as ultimate sports. He has raced in many marathons as well as 100+ mile team races. He is an avid snow boarder, runner, golfer and mountain bike rider. But, most importantly, professionally, he is intensely focused on each individual client’s health and well-being, paying particular attention to the person’s goals, blind spots, habits, motivations, and practices. His assessments of overall body balance, alignment and strength along with one’s injuries, pain, and endurance/fitness are targeted and informative. He educates clients about their particular body status and puts training plans together that prioritize the right set of strengthening and repair (as needed), so that whatever needs addressing first receives the right attention. He understands injuries and how other professional interventions can assist recovery (e.g. physical therapy, acupuncture, massage, etc.), so his training programs can work in conjunction with such therapies. His expertise is appropriate for those wishing to develop more elite athletic skills to those healing from injuries, eager to get back in shape. While his main client population is adults (ages 20s to 50s), he also has expertise in working with older adults and teenagers. He has had great success engaging older adults who may have lifelong habits, practices or injuries that need repair and correction along with light education. His training programs are targeted for the appropriate strength, mobility and capacities of the older individual. On the other end of the spectrum, he is a fabulous trainer of adolescents, girls and boys, understanding the different body types, developmental issues and appropriate training guidelines that can help educate young people about their own bodies as well as about their fitness capacities and goals. I highly recommend Tom as a personal trainer for these many different populations and targeted needs. He excels in this profession he loves. He is far more sophisticated than most “standard” personal trainers. He is committed to what he does and to ongoing learning about new developments and approaches in his various areas of expertise. Clients will learn far more than they might have imagined in their work with Tom Doherty.
Louise is a very skilled trainer who takes her time to get to know you, your goals, and your fitness level. She individualizes each session targeting your goals, adapting for an injury or impairment, if needed, and keeps sessions fun and exciting all the while making progress and working hard! Louise is extremely knowledgeable about safe and effective form for all exercises and activities as well as understanding the muscle groups. As a physical therapist, I am extremely confident in her plans she creates for me and I have continued to reach all my goals. I feel privledged to have found Louise to keep me motivated and support me in working on my strength, endurance, and balance goals!!
