When I started working with Michelle my goals were to improve myself physically and spiritually by stepping out of my normal workouts and comfort zone because they were no longer working for me. Since working with Michelle she has inspired me to reach for new goals by setting and creating new and out of the box workouts that alone I never would have imagined possible. Trusting Michelle in this way and following her lead has shown me that I am stronger than I thought. She has given me a new confidence to see my capacity for accomplishing my dreams in all areas of my life. What is different about Michelle that I have not found in other trainers is that she cares about all of me and is invested in my whole life. She is not only a trainer but has become a friend and a mentor to me.
Johnny is the man. I wasn't sure what to expect as I spend a good amount of time in the gym already, but from the start he's given me challenging workouts that are specific to my needs and different than my normal routine. He's very easy to talk to and makes the whole workout enjoyable but definitely challenging. I'm currently working with him to prep for my first physique competition and he's making the process (that's quite challenging) very attainable. I highly recommend him!
One of the best trainers there is, knowledgeable, accountable, caring, always striving to learn more and be the best for his clients. Not many like him. Without a doubt Doug is the person you would like to have as your trainer.
I've been going to the gym regularly since after college and during that time, my body never seemed to change - no matter how much I thought I was pushing myself the muscle never appeared. Going to the gym had also become boring, but I didn't feel comfortable trying new workouts. I had previously written off training after witnessing sessions at my previous gym - too many trainers just barking orders and looking uninterested. At the urging of a friend though I gave Jeff a shot and after my first session knew I had struck gold. When you're training with Jeff he is totally focused on you - figuring out your short and long term goals, working with you to overcome obstacles, and scrutinizing the mechanics of your body's movement and how it affects your workouts. Over the last 8 months I have learned an incredible amount - things about my own body, new movements and workouts, and what it really means to push yourself. I have a newfound confidence when working out by myself that I didn't have before. All this had lead to two things; first I am actually seeing results! Muscle where there hasn't been before and generally feel stronger and healthier than I have in the past. More important though, Jeff has made working out fun - I'm actually enjoying workouts and not thinking of it as a chore. I'm looking forward to many many future sessions with Jeff and highly recommend him to anyone looking for training.
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.
I've been training with Debi for 4 months now. Having had 2 back surgeries, I was out of shape but hesitant to get back into the gym. Debi is understanding of this and any other anxiety, and is very encouraging. She really listens, and has the knowledge to implement a plan to help you reach your goals. I have always loved working with weights but wasn't sure if I'd regain my strength. Well, I've lost weight, gained strength and endurance beyond my expectations thus far; and I'm looking to compete in a powerlifting competition in 2 weeks. I'm not done improving yet, and I know Debi will be there every step of the way.
When I first met Cara, I knew I wanted to work with her. We got along, and I loved her energy. Her 18+ year experience shows in her knowledge about meal plans, posing and workouts. I had given her a tough task to compete in my first show 6 weeks out. Some said it wasn't possible, but I was confident that she would get me there in a safe and healthy way. She really cares about training her clients the right way, preserving muscle and cutting the fat, and eating! Every time I had a question or reached out to her, she was responsive, no matter what time it was. The day of my competition, she specially requested a breakfast for me, hand delivered it to my hotel room, and rushed back to the hotel room when I realized I forgot my jewelry. She always went that extra mile. Long story short, I reached my competition body fat/weight goal in time. I can't wait to start training again for my next shows with Cara! I highly recommend her to anyone who is competing in their first show, or who is thinking about switching to a new coach.
I would like to take this opportunity to recommend Kandace P. Platts, as a fitness/personal trainer. Kandace has been my trainer, motivator and confidante for 3 months. She has been able to walk that fine line of being the cutest drill sergeant and inspiring work out buddy with an ease that is uniquely hers. As a registered nurse, she has helped me with my diet which in turn has helped me push through those harder work outs and has reduced my hypoglycemia moments. I have worked out muscles that I didnt know even existed and even, when I give my dirty look after a touch 10th rep of some crazy exercise, I always feel a great since of accomplishment. Kandace has exceeded my expectations in so many ways. I am so grateful for her encouragement and knowledge and the best part, it is all done with such grace and a beautiful smile. I am so looking forward to working towards my first bikini competition with you.
I've always had trouble working out on my own! Crossclimb personal training gave me the structure, confidence, motivation and empower me to reach my goals! I can't believe I can now confidently wear a bikini and not feel self conscience at all! Thanks guys!!
Liisa has been one of the most understanding and informative trainers I have ever met. (Now Friend). If you are starting from the beginning or need to be challenged, Liisa is the person
Alicia is one of the best trainer I ever had. The best part is she creates the routine that suits you well.. She understands our goals and then prepares the work out schedule. She is the best out there .. I would get trained with her again 👍
Jason is an excellent personal trainer, and someone I would highly recommend to friends and family of all fitness levels. I worked out with Jason for about 4 months leading up to my destination wedding, and certainly glad that I did. Jason is extremely knowledgeable in both fitness and nutrition and was able to tailor a program specifically to me and all my imperfections. Jason is extremely personable and easy to talk to and gives you that feeling of "oh yeah maybe I can do this". In terms of results you will be optimizing every second of the time you spend in the gym when you work out with Jason. He will make certain you are doing exactly what you need to be doing, and exactly when you need to be doing it. If you're like me and get in the gym and stare at the equipment wondering what to do next, that problem will quickly be solved. Throw out all the excuses we all use, bad knee, shoulder injury, no time, etc. Give Jason a call, get in for a consult, and let him help get you back on track. I was a 30 something newbie to working and out and after a few months with Jason I gained enough confidence in my ability to work out productively and safely enough that I was able to venture out on my own. When I need that kick in the butt to get me reinvigorated I know who to call. I was enjoying my sessions with Jason so much, that I started bringing my wife. Jason was able to put something together where she and I could work out together and have fun doing it. I was really impressed with how well he adapted to my request and took time to develop a workout routine for 2 people that kept us both moving without too much wait time between exercises. Some even involved a little healthy competition, which was motivational. I could go on and on but very sincerely and highly recommend Jason.
I have been training with James for about 9 months. From day one, I began to see results from the way I felt, the level of energy I had, and the way I looked. Within the first three months I lost 25 pounds, and that shows how effective James is. He personalizes all of the training sessions to make sure that you reach your goals whether your goal is to run a 10k, do fitness competitions, become a skillful boxer or lose 7 inches off your waist. I worked with other trainers before and none were as effective as James. He is very professional, and very passionate about the work that he does.
Ryan is a good trainer who will get you results. He is professional and prompt. I have been using him for over a year now after hiring him from thumbtack.
I have been a very active member of Elevate Health Studio, for approximately 4 years......if you are looking for a new gym "home", you have found it. The staff and trainers constantly strive to guide their clients to work as hard as possible, always at their own level, to reach that next step in fitness. They also take their own education and training very seriously, by taking new certification courses themselves, so they can introduce their clients to new ways of keeping fit. The class offerings each day, the fun, the work as well as the new friendships, have kept me motivated and interested for nearly 4 years! The environment that has been created at Elevate is a perfect balance of "let's do this" and a comforting home. Elevate's offerings are vast - they have equipment, amazing classes as well as several fundraising events throughout the year, that benefit various local charities. The owners, Amy and Melissa are very passionate about their business and it shows in every aspect of this gym. Definitely give it a try!!!
Cody is extremely knowledgeable and capable of tailoring strength, conditioning and longer-term training plans to meet the needs of individual athletes. In my younger year, I was a serious athlete and fortunate to work with many talented coaches. Now older, I'm amazed at how much I continue to learn from Cody. My strength, flexibility and speed have all improved. After many years away from competition, I'm once again having fun swimming, biking and running to train for TRI events. Thanks to Cody, who designs individualized workouts and longer-term plans that are both challenging and interesting, I'm enjoying the time that I have to devote to training, more than I ever have.
Drigo is an extremely focused and passionate coach who always exhibits the utmost professionalism. My wife and I been clients of his for 2+ years because he always finds new ways to motivate and inspire us, which leads to amazing results. The aesthetic results have been remarkable, but our true joy comes from how we FEEL - both during and after the workout. I'm a personal trainer myself, and have managed and groomed numerous coaches; Drigo is the coach I always refer to as the example of the ideal health and fitness coach. Truly one of a kind.
"After a disastrous competition prep that left me physically and mentally depleted, I was weary about venturing into training again. Once I made the decision to return to training, I first searched for a local gym that could accommodate the level of fitness that I aspired to achieve. After visiting several in the area, I chose Eastmans. Initially, I observed but did not engage John Eastman. Almost immediately he made an impression on me with his attention to detail and personal knowledge about each member of his gym. A month later I approached John about personal training. I explained my history and apprehension relative to my recent experiences. Johns nature is very calm, open, insightful and informed. I felt at ease with him and confident that he understood my goals. Not only does John possess a wealth of knowledge related to a range of fitness topics, but he is not opposed to learning something new, which is a rare characteristic. I began to train with John three mornings per week. Each morning, John would be prepared with a written plan. As we progressed through our workouts, he would log my strength and progress within the plan he had created. It didnt take long before I began to see results and restore my strength. In Johns work, theres no such thing as winging it. This is also reflected in other aspects of Johns life, including the cleanliness of his gym and his commitment to his own fitness. John helped me to get back on track in a healthy way, find my passion for training again, (and pushes me to compete again). Lastly, but by no means the least of importance, John is a man of integrity. He can be trusted. I enjoy my mornings at Eastmans. John, as a person and a trainer, and his gym, can be credited with this!"
Marisa is an amazing trainer, Ive been working with her for the past year and 1/2 and I couldnt be more happy. I was a competitive athlete all throughout High School, which at that time, made it easy to stay in shape. Growing up I had an extremely fast metabolism which meant I was used to eating whatever I wanted. After college, I soon realized that I had let myself get into extremely bad shape, and had formed many horrible eating habits, I realized that I actually had no idea how to workout on my own and had no idea about nutrition, so I went on the hunt for a personal trainer. I was unsure of what to expect , but Marisa offered the first session free of charge, and after that one session, I knew that I had found exactly what I was looking for. I signed up for one of her package deals. She created a program that was specifically tailored to my wants and needs, and she switches it up every 2 weeks so that I dont get bored or plateau. I am amazed at the results that I have seen, and couldnt havent done it without her. She gives great nutritional advice to incorporate into my fitness routine and I always look forward to our sessions because I know they will both be fun and productive. She has such a positive energy about her and definitely practices what she preaches. With her help Ive learned to not just have a workout routine, but to actually start living a happy healthy lifestyle. I could not recommend a better personal trainer to anyone!
I reached out to Steve to help me train for my first bikini competition. He gave me a personalized diet and helped personal train me every week until the show. He was awesome, he answered all my questions and was very interactive throughout the process. He made me feel so comfortable in the gym and was really supportive. I never would have done so well if it wasn't for him! I was so happy I've continued working with him for over a year.
Great trainer knows his stuff! Whether its weight\fat loss,weight gain or increase in strength he is the one that can help you! I have come very far with Paul and now actively compete in powerlifting, figure competitions and strongman events. Really nice guy and welcoming to all! Gym warriors is a very fun and positive environment with members who like to push themselves to be the best they can!!! Wonderful
