WORKING WITH BRANDON HAS BEEN MY BEST PERSONAL TRAINING EXPERIENCE: HE'S FRIENDLY, ACCOMMODATING, INNOVATIVE, AND MOTIVATING. I'VE HAD TRAINERS AT MULTIPLE GYMS AND LARGELY BECAME DISENFRANCHISED BY THE PROCESS BECAUSE EVERYBODY SEEMED TO USE ONE OF TWO MODELS: WORK ME UNTIL I DIE, OR COPY P90X. I CAN, AND HAVE, DONE BOTH ON MY OWN. THIS WAS NOT MY EXPERIENCE WITH BRANDON. FIRST OFF, HE ACTUALLY LISTENED WHEN I EXPLAINED TO HIM MY GOALS AND DESIRE TO DO DIFFERENT TYPES OF EXERCISES. FROM DAY 1 WE USED A COMBINATION OF WEIGHTS, RESISTANCE BANDS (WHICH I'VE NEVER DONE WITH ANOTHER TRAINER), PLYOMETRICS, COMBINATIONS, AND EVEN BOXING (YES, I SAID BOXING - ANOTHER FIRST). EVERY WEEK I COULD TELL HE PREPARED THE WORKOUTS SPECIFICALLY TO HIT CERTAIN MUSCLE GROUPS, IN A CERTAIN ORDER, AND IN DIFFERENT WAYS. HE WAS ALWAYS PREPARED AND NEVER JUST WINGING IT AS WE WENT ALONG. HE EVEN INITIATED A SATURDAY SESSION TO MIX UP OUR ROUTINE WITH SOME CITY RUNNING AND INTERSPERSED EXERCISES - IT WAS A GREAT IDEA FOR DOING SOMETHING DIFFERENT AND STILL GETTING A GREAT WORKOUT. BRANDON ALSO MET ME AT MY HOME AND WAS EARLY FOR EACH SESSION. WE USED THE FULL AMOUNT OF TIME FOR TRAINING, NOT CUTTING IT SHORT TO RUN OFF TO ANOTHER CLIENT ON THE TOP-OF-THE-HOUR. I FELT LIKE MY TRAINING TIME WAS MINE AND BRANDON WAS 100% THERE. I HAD TO CHANGE OUR SCHEDULED MEETING TIME AND EVEN RESCHEDULE SEVERAL SESSIONS AFTER THAT, BUT BRANDON WAS VERY FLEXIBLE AND KIND ABOUT IT. I HAD EVEN INJURED MY KNEE (HELPING SOMEONE MOVE) AND BRANDON STAYED IN TOUCH BY OFFERING ME TIPS ON HOW TO CARE FOR IT AS WELL AS SIMPLY CHECKING IN TO SEE HOW I WAS DOING. BOTTOM LINE IS THAT BRANDON IS DEDICATED AND YOU CAN SEE THIS EASILY IN HOW HE TREATS YOU, YOUR TIME TOGETHER, AND YOUR WORKOUT.
Robert is amazing!!! He kicks my butt and makes workouts fun at the same time. No two workouts are the same. I've been doing a small group class for three months and I do one-on-one boxing once in a while and I'm already in much better shape. And I look forward to my workouts every week. I definitely definitely recommend Robert if you're looking for a trainer! He's the best.
Ben Supik & the Activate Team are great. They accommodate my training sessions to work with my schedule and offer a wide range of classes to meet all interests in training. I have been boxing for over a year and have enjoyed it very much. Can't say enough good things about my experience with Activate.
I love working with Cornelius. We meet twice a week and July will be my 3rd month of having him help me with fitness and strength training. There are many reasons why I would recommend him. Here are a few. I am 45 year old woman, 5.5 in height and weigh 230lbs. I was a strong swimmer when I was younger, but have never spent much time in gyms. I would describe myself as having little to no awareness of myself as someone who can train. But I did know that I needed and wanted to get into much better shape. I was also excited about developing better balance, a stronger core, and even new skills like boxing. When I met Cornelius he asked me detailed questions about why I was there and began to develop a program around my strengths, goals and limitations, which included a lower back injury and tendinitis in my left elbow. Every time we meet he asks briefly on how I am doing, and I know he is thinking through the workout to take me to the limit of my capabilities while still ensuring that it is enjoyable. I always have a great time and am tired but invigorated when I leave. This has altered how I view exercise and feel about myself. The gym where we train is tiny but has taught me important things about how less is more, and that you can do a lot with what's around you. This has been a huge help in keeping on training when traveling as you don't need to find a gym but can do many things to build strength and keep in shape where you are. Finally, I feel safe and respected working with Cornelius in the little gym and know that we are on a steady positive path to making real and lasting improvements to my health and wellbeing. I can't think of a better investment to make than that.
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 with Anthony for a couple weeks now and have really enjoyed it. He is great for all levels. Every class I get a mix of circuits, cardio, kickboxing, wrestling, etc. Each class is exciting because it's never the same. I feel great after I leave and am always looking forward to the next class. Great find and very professional!
Chad Hake and the CrossFit First Law Team are a fabulous and friendly group that provide insightful, individualized coaching for all fitness levels. The program is challenging, but scalable and supported by knowledgable professionals that are engaged in continuous learning about their sport and strive to inspire others to live healthier, happier lifestyles.
When I first met Dimitri over a year ago, I had a long way to go on my fitness journey and was a little bit intimidated about starting a training program. During our first training session I nearly passed out because I was out of shape, and I wasn’t fueling my body the way I needed. Right away Dimitri made me feel reassured that I could, and would, get stronger and better if I put in the work. He took the time to help me set my goals, discuss my likes/dislikes, and from there, created a custom plan for me to reach my goals. The program he designed relies on high-intensity intervals, coupled with strength training and kickboxing. I had never tried kickboxing before, but now it has become my favorite part of our sessions! A few months into our training I injured my ankle and thought I would need to put training on pause. Because of Dimitri’s expert knowledge of kinesiology and his extreme attention to avoiding further injury, I was able to continue on a modified program and make steady progress towards my goals. Not only is Dimitri incredibly knowledgeable about fitness and nutrition, but also he is encouraging and supportive during every step of the way. He pushes me harder than I ever knew I could push myself, and thanks to him, I have been successful in my fitness journey and boosting my confidence. With his help, I’ve lost over 25 lbs, gained lean muscle and drastically improved my strength and flexibility!
Liz has been my personal trainer for the last 5 months. I love working with her, the sessions are tailored to my needs and goals I've set out to reach. Liz comes up with a plan to help her clients get there. She motivates me to give it my best, and in such a positive demeanor. Since working with Liz I have seen the biggest changes month to month regarding my weight, inches and body fat percentage, all dropping significantly. Her whole outlook and attitude have really helped me not only at the gym but at home. I think of Liz as I decide between having a healthy dinner or a box dinner. I finally feel like I've made a lifestyle change thanks to Liz. This is what I wanted and needed.
Some of us have spent a lifetime going from one diet to another, looking for a quick fix. Of course, this doesn't work because the real key to weight loss and fitness involves a lifestyle change. Going to a big box gym doesn't always fit, our lives are not cookie cutter perfect. That's why you need a personal trainer like Debra Baker who understands how nutrition and exercise play a key role in weight loss and maintenance. Not only does she have the credentials, she cares and wants you to reach your fitness goals and have a positive experience. I highly recommend you give her a call.
Derwent is the type of trainer others should aspire to be like. He is passionate about training clients and sets goals that challenge a person to meet and exceed their potential. He gives 100% of his attention and never appears to be rushing through the perscribed training program just to check the box and move on to the next client or task. He really cares about the success of his clients. Derwent is my professional trainer for life! I love the Renewed Fitness platform used to track workouts and check-in, in addition to being able to monitor my progress. My trainer can see what I'm doing and communicate with me in a timely manner. The video clips and other graphics that demo each exercise remind me to be focus of my form. I appreciate having the option to add exercises or move them to a different day when my schedule dictates.
I've been working out with Todd for almost 10 years. I started as one of his boxing students but kept going to my personal trainer. My former personal trainer had me looking good physically but I was not really physically fit. I consolidated all my training with Todd because I wanted to look good AND be fit. My physical strength rose dramatically after I trained solely with Todd, especially core strength and endurance. My doctor always comments on the change when I go in for my annual physical. Most of the personal trainers at large gyms in D.C. focus on physical appearance over usable strength, but strength, balance, and endurance are really what you want to aim for. You'll look good if you are truly physically fit. Most of Todd's clients have been with him for a long time, so I would say they all understand this. I would strongly recommend him to anyone who wants to both look fit and, more importantly, BE fit.
I've been working out with Eric for almost 3 years now. He is dedicated, inventive, insightful and experienced coach. I have done boot camp, boxing and kick boxing classes and at each one of these I would be challenged to push my boundaries and get to the next level. I love it! This is just a small part of what TNSF offers and I wholeheartedly recommend for everyone interested to stop by and give it a try.
3 words, Distant Performance Program!! This is the most awesome and innovative idea I have ever taken part in. I had my own gym, I hated their trainers, I thought their rates were ridiculous and all of them looked 19 years old. I could already out lift most of them. Vertex showed me that I could control my routine, on my own time and allowed me to include my input and experience. It was the best strength routine I had ever had...I have never, in the 10 years I've been lifting, seen faster results than with Vertex's routines. Greatly impressed and will be going back for round 2 in 6 months.
I have been training with Aaron for almost a year and am in the best shape of my life. Aaron has extensive knowledge of both boxing training and traditional strength and condition training and combines both in his workout. He knows how to pace training to be difficult but within my capability and steadily raises the bar each session.
I have been boxing with Nick for over a month now and it has been great working with him. He always takes into account what I want to do but also pushes me to do better and more than I thought I could.
Ce is a phenomenal trainer with years of experience in many areas. I trained with ce for 10 months in crossfit and boxing and never felt healthier or more confident than when I was training with him. Ce works you hard and will never give up on you. I lost weight, toned up, and became much stronger Than I can ever remember. If he hadn't moved to a new city, I would keep training with him for as long as possible. There aren't enough good things to say. You will get results and you will not regret it.
