Outstanding service from Svetness Personal Training. Svet, the company's CEO, met with me in person to answer any questions and learn what I was trying to achieve by signing up They offered me a complete solution with in home training, meal plan, progressive measurements to help me reach my goal, and even offered to shop with me at Wegmans to pick out food. I did 3 hours a week with Mahdi and have seen noticeable results after a couple months. They've grown their customer base so quickly that they're opening a brand new gym in Leesburg in January 2015. I've enjoyed my experience with Svet Personal Training and they have my highest endorsement.

I like to think I know when I'm doing when it comes to weight loss as I've lost over 275 pounds over three years. Then I hit a very frustrating eight month plateau and decided I needed help. That's when I met Agnese and employed her to get me back on track. I complain a lot when working out with her but I have now lost weight seven straight weeks and counting. Agnese is encouraging, disciplined and perhaps most importantly fun to train with. She has a way to push you harder to earn her approval and while she freely offers praise she is quick to correct you if you get lazy with form or effort. Agnese is certified to train for any fitness goal you may have. Our group training is made up of a variety of ages with a diverse end result as goals. Whether you want to lose a few pounds, train for an event or just develop better lifetime fitness Agnese is the trainer for you.

I came across Cornelius about five months ago when I was looking to do some strength training following a running injury. I've been seeing him about once a week and have really enjoyed the sessions. The first session we talked abut my fitness goals, and following that, he has put together a series of excellent sessions that focus on core strength, upper body work, and some agility. I've definitely noticed a difference to my overall fitness level, mainly through the sessions, but also through using the different exercises he has shown me at my gym at work. He is very focused on correct technique which has also helped me to recover from my injury, and remain injury free. I really appreciate his approach to the sessions, which is fairly low key and down to business, but in a good way. No yelling and high fives thats for sure. In terms of price, I didn't really do any research but I think the cost per-session is about average for trainers here in DC. Well worth the investment and I'm intending to keep going.

I have been doing strength training with Janet for about 5 years and recently added cardio. I am extremely pleased with my experience. She is very proficient at keeping workouts challenging and interesting, and does a great job motivating me to progress. I have seen remarkable improvement in my strength, in my appearance, and in my health, including bone density.

I discovered Jenise through thumbtack and by reading reviews about her. I had been seeking for a personal trainer. After my initial consultation, I knew that she was the trainer for me. To give an overview of my fitness level: I am 26. I am a non-athlete. Actually, I’m pretty uncoordinated and clumsy and have never regularly exercised before. I love yoga but I also never got into doing it regularly enough. Its rare to get the motivation for me to get up and go to the gym which is why I chose to seek a personal trainer that can come to me and give me an individualized service. When I contacted Jenise, she offered for a consultation and to see my goals and ultimately see if my schedule will fit in with hers. I should have worn appropriate clothing at that time to do a fitness assessment… nevertheless, after booking she came to me for the assessment, measurements, and weigh-in. We completed 12 sessions in a 1 month period. Just like learning a new skill or a language or an insurance for a healthier life in the future— every penny is worth it. If I could afford it, I would for sure continue working out with Jenise 3 times a week all my life!! But this has been a really great stepping stone to a STRONGER me. The workouts as other reviews mention are different each time although during every session you focus on different parts of the body. Usually you do one session focusing on lower body, one on upper body and one focusing on the core. She makes sure that your workout is high-intensity and always adds new moves or gadgets to the workouts to make it fun. Boxing, resistance training outside in the neighborhood, when the weather is nice, were some of the highlights for me. Even though, I liked the convenience of her coming to me.. I also liked going to her location at the end of the week to top off my workout and get the MOST out of my weekly workouts. Her gym has all the equipment needed to kick butt. She really understands the anatomy and where your weaknesses lie as a unique individual. She builds your workouts according to these and changes the number of repetitions or the amount of weight as necessary during the workout. She watches you closely on your form and ensures you get the most out of every exercise. I personally never liked working out because I never knew how to. I knew I had terrible form and didn’t know how to fix it. Jenise became a teacher to me and showed me how to properly lift. She also always reminded me to breathe when I exerted energy (I tend to hold my breath when I lift .. its no bueno!) Now I see that I have made progress and I have learned proper form, I am keen to continue with it. My 12 sessions came to an end last week. I would 100% renew more sessions with Jenise if it weren’t for my mother looking to join a gym with me. Right now, my finances and time aren’t allowing me to afford both, but I know for certain Jenise and I will be training again in the future. I can tell she has made a STRONGER me and I don’t want to lose any of what I have worked for this past month! If you are hesitant, I get that. Truly. But give it a shot. Jenise is wonderful. Trust her, she knows exactly what you need. I'm so glad I trusted her on this journey. I highly recommend CW3 to everyone!

I have been working out with Denise for just over 2 years. She is very knowledgeable about fitness training ~ whether it is using machines or "boot camp" type regimens using body weight, kettle bells, dumb bells, resistance bands or resistance balls. She also has good nutritional information to go along with the workouts as well. If you can't make it to the gym, she will come to you....

I love Gee! Not only did she help me get back to my pre baby weight, but also a body I've never seen before training with her. Plus she's so funny! I hated working out but I knew I had to do something. She's so fun and keeps the workouts interesting plus she pushes you like no other, I fell in love with the gym. Me. Yes me. I actually WANT to workout. Thanks Coach Gee!

I've been an athlete my entire life, and as such, I am familiar with training from an array of backgrounds. I have never had training as successful and rewarding as the training I get here. The lessons you learn here will help you become stronger both physically and mentally, as you learn to push through barriers like never before. I can honestly say that I am the strongest (both physically and mentally) I have ever been.

I've been training with Tim for more than 1 year. He is the best personal trainer I had so far. He'll adjust the training level based on your strength and push you to achieve your goals. I lost more than 10 lbs and decreased body fat by 4% already. I highly recommend Tim to anyone who is looking for a great personal trainer.

I can’t say enough good things about Julian! We definitely hit the jackpot with him and in a very short time, he’s become a great trainer, mentor and role model for my 15 year old son who has wanted to increase his strength/stamina while working on his soccer skills. Julian very quickly responded to my search for a personal trainer and was incredibly professional during our introductory call. It was evident that his knowledge of /experience with soccer as a player and coach would be a good match for my son. He also shared his philosophy about strength training with kids, specifically how he seeks to understand what motivates and is important to them, so he could then weave in his expertise which ultimately would result in a truly customized program to help accomplish their goals. He was eager to “meet” my son and scheduled some time to speak with him personally over the phone and get to know him. I was impressed at how he was able to get from a 15-year old boy, what his fitness goals were! In less than a week of my initial inquiry, my son was training in the gym with Julian and has absolutely loved every session with him. Julian maximizes every second during each workout and even encourages kids to come in early to get warmed up (so really, while you pay for a 60-minute session, you get 70-75 minutes!) My son has already noticed physical changes, but beyond that, his sense of confidence, focus, and dedication has increased tremendously. Julian provides encouragement inside and outside the gym by keeping tabs on my son and checking in on how he’s doing. Even when my son tried out for another soccer team, Julian gave him sound advice throughout the process, acted as a sounding board, and alleviated any anxiety he had. The investment you make in Julian goes far beyond strength training; you also get someone who takes a genuine interest in your well-being and wants you to be successful. He empowers you with exercises which don’t require you to be in a gym (my son did his own workouts during the winter break) and with general “life skills/lessons”. Go for a free consultation with Julian ... you’ll be hooked!

I am going on my 2nd month of working with Edwin and he is an absolute motivation and inspiration not only in the areas of personal training but also with personal and career goals. He values what he does as a personal trainer and has been readily available to answer any of my nutritional questions or concerns by giving alternative meal options and exercise homework. Edwin is very dedicated in helping me reach my goals and I appreciate it so much. Erinn

I train with Annie three times a week and observed results after the first month! Not only did I drop clothing sizes but I found I had more energy at the end of the day! Annie has a great personality and a beautiful family, I would recommend this for anyone who is looking for that "help from a friend" feel over being put into a cookie cutter training program.

I've been training 1:1 with Matt for a couple of months, and I couldn't recommend him highly enough. He helped me form fitness goals within our first two sessions and is patient and encouraging but also pushes me and holds me accountable. He clearly knows his stuff and is very attentive to form so as to avoid injuries. I meet with him weekly, but he's also available to advise and support me outside of our scheduled sessions. Very knowledgeable and experienced trainer!

When I first reached out to Damien for training I was underweight and had not worked out in over a year. Therefore, my fitness goals were to gain healthy weight (lean muscle) while staying toned. Damien’s training approach was personalized to my goals and not a “one-size fits all” approach to fitness. Therefore, he took the time to learn how my body reacts to variations of exercises, weight, cardio and nutrition. He was able to figure out the right equation for me to achieve my fitness goals. It was definitely a process! Which he let me know in the beginning that there is no quick fix, I have to put in the work, in the gym as well as on my own and to trust the process. Damien has a unique ability to push you during your workouts beyond what you think you are capable of achieving without the unnecessary intense in-your-face yelling like I’ve seen some trainers do. Damien is professional, knowledgeable and his physique, energy and attitude reflects a healthy lifestyle and bear the fruits of an effective exercise regime. After seeing the amount of discipline and hard work that he put into his own personal journey of bodybuilding, I was inspired to compete in my first women’s bikini bodybuilding competition. Training with Damien helped me build a solid foundation to start my journey in bodybuilding. I was very impressed and pleased with my results within a year and a half of training with him and highly recommend him. Damien’s passion and beliefs about health and fitness will give you the confidence to trust the process and believe in yourself!

My experience with TakeFlight Fitness was a success! I was skeptical at first about the goals I wanted to achieve and if they would happen within the 7 sessions that I scheduled. But to my surprise, the sessions with Paul helped me to learn about dieting, staying consistent and keeping positivity that you can always achieve any goal you desire. I didn't think I'd be able to gain any muscle mass and weight but I did and I managed to meet my weight goal of 140. Since then, I've been very consistent in maintaining my diet and sticking to my workout routines at home and in the gym. Everyone in my surroundings have also noticed the improvement in my body structure which lets me know that my experience with TakeFlight is recognized. My biggest take away from training with TakeFlight Fitness is that you have to understand it's not an easy job for fitness and there's a lot of scientific background to know how the body works. However, if you seriously want to change your lifestyle for the better, you'll do whatever is possible to reach that goal.

I've been training with Marshall for a few weeks now and am already very happy with the personal training and nutrition plan he has provided. First off, you will not find a better trainer for the money than Marshall in the greater Baltimore area. His prices are about half of what I paid at a boutique personal training studio in Baltimore City and half or more than other quotes I received. Secondly, the training he has provided has pushed me like no other trainer has pushed me before. His detailed workout routines and cardio plans have me seeing results already. He has also provided me with a detailed and easy-to-follow meal plan at no additional charge. If you are looking to get into shape, or just looking to get into better shape, I highly recommend Marshall without hesitation.
