I hired a personal trainer for five weeks. She was knowledgeable, pleasant, and showed me how to use the weight machines and also gave some good advice on loosing weight quickly. However, she was often distracted by her fitness app, and during those times was not attentive to what I was doing. Although not her style, I would have preferred to have a more upbeat trainer that really motivated me to push my limits instead of just standing there watching me do repetitions.Mar 25, 2017Verified
I went through the process of reaching out 6 different personal trainers, and ultimately selected Cass Fitness because of their responsiveness, value, the fact that they come to my building's gym, and how much I enjoyed my first session. I'm only two workouts into my relationship with Cass Fitness, but I would highly recommend them so far.Feb 2, 2016Verified
Matthew Bible has helped me immensely in my efforts to be more physically fit. Over a six month period working with Matthew I have been able to see increases in all my personal records. Some of my measurable gains include increasing my bench press maximum from 205lbs to 315lbs; I can run a 5k in 25 minutes, which is down from 37 minutes and I have gained muscle, but lost 10lbs! His workouts are not limited to the standard gym norms, a fact that I both love and hate! We do varying styles of planks, pull-ups, floor bridges, push-ups, and some exercises that can only be shown and not explained, these creative exercises are odd but I cannot argue with the results! Matthew is there working with you every step of the way and making sure that not only are you doing the exercises to your full potential, but that you are also doing them correctly. I highly recommend Matthew as a friend and a personal trainer!Jan 16, 2014
I trained with Matt for my first personal training experience. I went in knowing what I wanted to improve and work on, also hoping to get a better understanding of my body and how I can improve my lifestyle to make it a bit healthier. I was a bit nervous since I wasn't sure what to expect. I was thinking the worse like: he was going to be really hard and tough on me, make me feel anxious or awkward, or even not feeling comfortable at all. That was not the case! He was great! He has a wonderful character and is super nice. I felt very comfortable during the session which was one of the most important things for me. I can tell he knows exactly what he doing and is very knowledgeable which made me feel like I was in the right hands. Fitness seems like his passion and he keeps up on the latest nutritional research and news. He is also very aware of my goals which we are strongly working on, my habits, metabolic type, and physical abilities. Why did I wait so long to meet him and start training? It is so much more beneficial than going to the gym and doing the same old work out each time. He provides different techniques and settings each time which I loved! Really great investment-not just to improve your lifestyle and physique, but to also gain a great friend in the process!Jan 27, 2014
Matt is an excellent trainer. He lives, breathes, and eats fitness, which is hugely motivating for his clients. Working out with Matt is never dull, because hes great about not repeating the same workouts each session. He also does a good job of explaining why he has you do certain exercises and has a good eye for proper form and execution. I also think Matt is a great conversationalist and so keeps your mind occupied on an entertaining story rather than the pain! And he definitely will not let you get away with anything that keeps you from achieving your fitness goals. Training with Matt may be the best investment you can make in yourself and I highly recommend working with him.Mar 31, 2014Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Our typical process is interacting with a new customer either here on Thumbtack or our other methods of advertising. We then set up a time to call the customer. We set up a free assessment for the client to get a great idea of how we will program their workouts along with making sure the customer is a good fit with the trainer. We send a new client questionnaire to get a better idea of their goals, lifestyle, dietary habits, injury history, etc.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?In addition to certifications, I study at least one hour every day through fitness books, journals, blogs, research on common topics further than my certification book dove into.
