Ruth is a very friendly, knowledgeable personal trainer. I like the idea she has competed before. Very fortunate that we live in the same city and she'll come to the house to train at a very reasonable rate. Even got my roommate and mom to workout with her too!

5 years ago, weighing in at 378lbs, and a lack of motivation/ determination to do anything I decided to take my life back. The one constant thing in all this has been my personal trainer/ life coach Pete Haugabook. His unique meal plans, unmatched knowledge to weight lifting/ nutrition, and his ability to motivate makes him the best at what he does. To me, he’s not a trainer, he’s a friend. His meal plans won’t break the bank, and are extremely manageable. With his help, I have lost over 100lbs and have made fitness not only a routine, but a way of life.. Pete literally saved my life, and for that, I will always be grateful!

Just began working with my Personal Trainer Pete and so far so EXCELLENT. He is dependable, knowledgeable and passionate about what he does. He holds you accountable for your diet and he pushes you in your workout. With the guidance that is given during the workouts and the individual meal plans he creates for you weekly, he is the perfect trainer for anyone at any fitness level who is serious about positive changes. 2 thumbs up!

I was a bit apprehensive about starting with a personal trainer at first.. I didn't know what to expect.. But I was pleasantly surprised!! He was very professional and accommodating.. He was patient with my concerns but kicked my butt when I needed it too!! I was very excited about my results and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to get in shape!!

I am 36 and never had an issue with maintaining my weight or being active in the past and always worked out on my own. In 2013, my right hip started to give me a lot of pain and I was losing flexibility very quickly. I found out I had osteoarthritis in both hips. I decided to quit smoking and gained about 25 lbs. I was slowly becoming depressed due to the weight gain and hip pain. I tried yoga, pilates, other trainers, etc.... I could not lose the weight. I decided in June of 2016 to have my hip replaced and I wanted to be strong for my recovery. I found Health Targeted Solutions in July 2016 and I am so happy I did! I worked out regularly between July and Feb. Not only did I meet an amazing group of people that I now consider friends, I am coming up on 6 weeks since I had my hip replaced and know my quick recovery is because of Health Targeted Solutions. Al helped me strengthen my core, legs, and arms to prepare for this major surgery and Sue helped me learn how to eat correctly without starving myself. I cannot wait to go back and start training again with my new hip and watch my body transform even more than it already has. Everyone is so motivating and welcoming here, I recommend Health Targeted Solutions for anybody and everybody looking for a fun, motivating atmosphere! You will see results!!!

I've been going to Al since November (About 7 months now). I was previously a collegiate athlete and lost my passion for exercise because being fit had always come natural to me. I put on some weight, but never felt the need or desire to workout. I was nervous about going to a personal trainer, but my sister convinced me that Al was great--Let's just say my sister was completely right! I now go to Al about 2-4 times a week. I've lost weight and gained muscle. I have never looked forward to working out like I do now. As much as I know it is hard work, I feel amazing after!! Al creates unique workouts for every session, he will push you to achieve, and makes you feel proud of what you accomplish. He looks out for his clients and wants them to do their best all the time. Part of this review not only goes out to Al, but also to the group of people that he trains. There is absolutely NO judgement, you feel supported by everyone around you! All people are helpful, nice, and want you to do your best (just like Al). Since going to Al, I feel stronger, healthier, and more confident than I have felt since I was a college athlete. Al makes fitness affordable and makes things possible for people to achieve!

I love how flexible this training system is. I don't need to come in at a set time everyday. Al is very professional and very knowledgeable about fitness and I feel like I'm in great hands for achieving my goals. The value is amazing for personal training and I love the group training concept. Having others there completing their workouts and being super friendly helps keep me motivated and leaves me wanting to come back for more. Thanks Al for your hard work and dedication and I look forward to reaching my goals with you!

I can't say enough good things about Jenny and her personal training. Above all else she is a great person and really cares about her clients and getting them the results they are looking for. She will customize your workouts to your ability, they are never the same and are always challenging. She's not the type to yell and scream, she always motivates you by being positive. She goes above and beyond what most personal trainers would do, from customized meal plans to grocery shopping lists. I am proud to call her a friend now, and I want everyone to know you'd be lucky to have her as your personal trainer.

I don't think anything could be done any better!! Jenny is amazing! She's very personal and fits exercises to your personal needs. The hardest part about having a trainer is on the off days and Jenny makes that easy by sending you workouts to do at your own home with whatever equipment you have. Even when it comes to nutrition and eating clean and healthy Jenny will help you. She's extremely nice, helpful, and she wants you to reach your goals as much as you do. I would definitely recommend Jenny as a personal trainer to anyone. :)

David is excellent at his job. I hired David in September 2014 after the birth of my daughter. He helped me to lose the stubborn baby weight. I continued to train with him through my second pregnancy and now after the birth of my son, David is once again helping me to shed the baby weight. He is a wonderful trainer who is professional and fun to be around. I highly recommend his services.

Shannon is the most motivating trainer that I have ever worked with! She has helped me build muscle and shed fat and consistantly influenced me to make the necessary lifestyle changes to maintain my body! If it wasn't for shannon I would still be at 32% body fat , 152lbs at 4'10 and unhappy about the fact that I was barely strong enough to get up 3 flights of stairs! She kept me going even when I put unhealthy weight back on and got a little off track! She's the best! I'm now at 26.7% body fat and weight 138.2lbs! I'm not done yet either!!! Shannon is worth the investment because she will invest twice as much back into you!!

I started working out with Shannon when she taught a group kickboxing class that I attended. The group was typically 5 people or less. Shannon made a point to make everyone feel comfortable. She gave us individualized modifications to exercises, personal tips, motivation and nutrition information. She actually made me WANT to work out! I have used her for personal training as well. Her exercises and meal plans are very personalized to what you need. She really makes it a point to get to know your likes/dislikes and what motivates you to succeed. I would highly reccommend her!!

Shannon is by far, the best trainer I've ever had. I've participated in many kickboxing classes led by her as well as personal training sessions. Besides being incredibly knowledgeable, Shannon is encouraging, accommodating, and always professional. She truly loves what she does, which makes me love it, too. I've definitely become a happier, healthier person since I've met her.

I found Jason on Thumbtack and was so glad I did! He is a great personal trainer that strives to put together workouts just for me and my fitness level. Jason is always changing up routines, exercises, and tempo of workouts to keep them interesting; making the time fly by and keeping me engaged. I am constantly being challenged and as a result my strength, balance, and endurance have all increased in a short period of time. I would highly recommend Jason to anyone looking for a fun trainer, great workouts, and an overall healthier lifestyle.

So, you're looking for a personal trainer and are wondering if PHIIT training is for you. Well, speaking for myself and the results that I have achieved with Chris - I would say yes! If you are serious about staying fit and healthy you can not pick a better place to do so than PHIIT Training Studio. I have been working out with Chris at another location for about 2 years, and was very excited for him to start out on his own. He is extremely knowledgeable about different types of exercises (KB, TRX, weight lifting etc). I ALWAYS get a great work-out, and if I present with an injury (I am no longer 35!) we modify the exercises to accommodate and he always sends me home with a couple of ideas to help at home. Chris is easy to work with, he has lots of ideas to help keep you on your fitness path. I am very happy here and will continue to work out here.

Gus is such a thoughtful and knowledgeable personal trainer. I was a complete beginner in the gym and he was super patient with me and ensured we worked at a pace that was comfortable for me, but still ensuring we make progress. On top of that, his rates are very reasonable and he'll work with everyone on their budget. I highly reccomend hiring Gus if you are serious about getting in shape, learning about nutrition, and want to work with someone who understands what it's like to have been a beginner!

I was hesitant about traning because I wasn't completely out of shape, but Gus helped me get stronger and taught me a lot about things I can do to keep my body healthy.

Gus challenged me and it was great because I gained more confidence in myself and mentally and physically. He's a great trainer and love working with him!!

I would recommend Gus to anyone trying to lose weight, gain muscle, or just feel healthier. He's awesome!

Deborah takes the phrase of "finding a job that doesn't feel like work" to the extreme. Every day, she comes in wanting to help you out and make you feel like you're apart of her family. Her responsiveness not only comes with work outs, but her charitable efforts as well. She asks us what charity we want our dollar to go towards, and every session one dollar is given to that particular charity. She values hard work and determination, not only in the gym but outside as well. Quick to help and accept are her values. She wants each and every one of us to succeed, and she will go out of her way to do so. She prides herself in her work ethic, and doesn't show a sign of distress. She always puts a 100 percent in each session, and never less than that. She loves her "job", and makes you feel like a champion every time you leave the studio. If you're looking for someone who will push you to your limits, help you out in your worst times, and help others in need, Deborah is the person to go to. An extra in working with Deborah is her meal plans. Another reason she goes above and beyond is her desire to help with making a personalized meal plan that will benefit you. It's quite evident that Deborah is more than just a trainer, and is one of the most impressive human beings you'll ever meet.

I hired Jeannette to help me get back into shape after having my baby. I have always been in good shape ,and no stranger to a gym. After having my baby and juggling life, I felt I needed someone to keep on track, and that's where she came in. She assessed me, spent ample time explaining the program I was about to start. Plus, I developed diastasis recti from my pregnancy, Jeannette knew the exercises that would help me in this area. We worked diligently to gradually bring my abdominal muscles back together, and more importantly to help strengthen my low back and abs; which from what I've learned help with overall support to the entire body. Jeannette is thorough with every exercise she introduces. That helped! What I also appreciated was how she checked in between sessions to see how I was feeling, plus would send me information regarding healthy eating and exercises I can do at home. She's pretty much on it!
