To give some background, I was a recovering bulimic who obsessed with food and absolutely hated looking at the mirror. Ive tried personal trainers a couple years of ago (usually the ones that give free sessions with your gym membership), but they didnt help with building a positive self-image. Finally, I was fed up with my body and my strength (or lack thereof), so I googled for affordable personal trainers outside of gyms with good reviews. One of the reasons I picked Brandon right away is because of his affordable rate. Forty dollars per session is a steal, especially when he drives to your location and pays for his own parking at your own appointed time. That kind of service is very helpful for a struggling college student. Not to mention, he quickly identified a good meal plan, and he used the free assessment to really personalize the workouts he gives. It also helps to have a trainer who cares about your progress and doesnt beat you up if you have a bad week. Sometimes life happens, but at least hes there to advise you on what you should change if something isnt working. I think he caught on that I love positive reinforcement, because his encouragement and advice really pushed me to change my lifestyle. The weight loss wasnt even the best part about his training. I used to hate sports, athletics, or any kind of physical activity, but now I love running. Working out has officially replaced my netflix binges. I am super thankful and happy that Ive had this experience.
Lisa is a very knowledgeable personal trainer. I am 55 and I have been struggling with post menopausal weight gain. Out of desperation, I went on Thumbtack and hired Lisa to help me lose weight, build muscle and gain my self confidence back. BEST THING I EVER DID! Lisa is honest, fun, and willing to work on whatever your personal goals are. Lisa spends more time with you than you pay her for, and she is very good about answering texts and emails as questions arise. I HIGHLY recommend Lisa as your personal trainer.
I hired John as a personal trainer because I needed someone to help me stay on track with diet and exercise. I did a session with him, and I knew he was the one for me. He was professional and always pushed me to make that extra effort. Even if I couldn't do it, he was supportive and optimistic about me getting it next time. John will help you achieve your goals by giving you a detailed plan about what he expects from you. He helped me get to my goals, and if I was still living in the Twin Cities area, I would hire him again.
Jessica is an amazing trainer. When I began training with Jess almost 3 years ago I was a year out from having twins. I learned early on from Jess that that inches come off faster than the pounds. After 4 months I was down 10lbs and that didn't seem like a lot but I lost 27inches and went from a size 12 to a size 6. With monthly measurements you can see and feel that you are achieving a goal and that building muscle does not mean bulking up if done right! As time progressed and I built more muscle, literally one day the pounds just flew off (20+ lbs lost). I stated when we met that I would never be able to do a sit up. I have since blown that out of the water and run numerous 5k's, 10k's, and 3 half marathons! The last being Big Sur, my dream! I also had a very high and erratic heart rate. After 3 years my heart rate has improved and is 30-40 beats lower while running. I now understand the need for a personal trainer. She pushes me beyond what I would make myself do. However, Jess will also listen as I have chronic IT Band issues. She understands when I say that I need to back down on something (as I never back down). Jess is an amazing trainer who will teach you new things about yourself and introduce you to new workouts you may not think of (TRX, Yoga, Boxing, how to use paper plates in a workout if you don't have equipment). She is truly amazing and most importantly we work as a team to achieve goals together! It speaks volumes that now my mother has come to understand why I use a trainer. My mother has now taken up strength training and yoga with Jess at the age of 62!
Went with BA Fitness for some personal training to change up my routine. Brett was awesome in getting me set up to have Kris train me. Things are going great and she is so flexible with my schedule.
I have been working with Bennett for about 2 months now and am very happy I contacted him. I am pretty new to fitness and have never been a regular gym goer. I always had some excuse in the past, but I became tired of not having the energy to keep up with my kids. Bennett has helped me with my mindset, confidence and persistence in working toward my fitness goals. I was a bit nervous to contact a personal trainer since I’ve never really gone to the gym with any regularity and didn’t know what to expect (plus Jillian Michaels and trainers like her scare me), but Bennett has been the very opposite of those stereotypical personal trainers. For one, he is an excellent listener and wants to know your goals and your body’s trouble areas. He is careful not to push too hard and is very keen on safety. Most importantly, he does things the right way, with the whole picture of fitness and diet and proper form and safety. He will meet you at whatever stage you are at and work with you to increase your health and fitness. One of his favorite expressions is “For now,” as in “Bennett, I am having a hard time doing this exercise.” “For now,” he’ll say, pointing me toward a fitter future. I see a lot of the reviews are from people who have been working with Bennett for 4+ years, so as a newbie I am speaking to people just now considering (or who have hesitated to consider for whatever reason) working with a personal trainer. Bennett is an excellent person to get you on your way.
Over the last 3 years I have been working with different personal trainers and out of all the trainers Erik has given me hope that I will be able to reach my dream of being healthy. He is willing to take that extra step to help his clients out! Best decision to work with Erik to reach my goal!
Chris is an excellent well rounded personal trainer. He is very passionate about what he does and very caring about each individual person he works with. Not only does he provide a good work-out routine (in the gym and homework) but he also provides powerful insights on nutrition to help you get to your goals. Several times I was struggling with life itself so he took the time and talked through these items with me to encourage me, keep me moving forward and keep me motivated with my fitness goals during those hard times. He does a great job providing a wide variety of work-outs so your never bored. Over the past year, I have yet to do a work-out with him that is the same. He has intense hard calorie burning workouts, heavy weight lifting workouts, and area focused workouts that are tailored to your specific goals. Being a tennis competitor I have had to wear a knee brace for the past 4 years. With his strength training program, and working through my knee injuries I have been without a knee brace for 4 months now! On top of that I'm quicker on the court and can really jump up and take tennis balls out of the air for a more aggressive play. Recently I became sectionals tennis champion and am a national qualifier for the Indian Wells tournament. He has gotten me to my goals and so much more! Hands down best personal trainer out there! Extremely recommend!
I like to describe Doug as "the Cadillac of personal trainers." So if you're looking for the best, you've found him. One of the reasons I esteem Doug so highly is because he strives to make things simple. "It's not easy," he says, "but it's simple." I appreciate this approach because it helps me focus and not waste my time constantly looking for the next new thing.
If you are looking for a trainer who can deliver results then kevin is your man.
Aaron is the only Personal Trainer that I would recommend.! Over the past 5-10 years I have had quite a few trainers, but none of them knew how to train as well as Aaron continues to do. He reviews my plans and follows my exercises intently. He knows how to work with me no matter what kind of mood I'm having and he always works great with me. I am sure that if I were to review Aaron Anderson's work display and knowledge again in a year or more I would say that he continues to get the goal that he and his client set out to get :-)
Bethany has been outstanding to work with! I have had a few personal trainers over the years, and she is by far the most attentive and focused on the things I need to improve/work on and on identifying new things to apply her focus. Even over the month I have been working with her I have started to see some dramatic improvements!
Michelle is an amazing trainer, she has helped me in many ways, not just helping me get in better shape. She has helped me feel confident in myself again!! Michelle is highly recommended (:
Jason is very approachable and easy to work with. He is very knowledgeable about nutrition and body work. He will help you to reach your personal goals regardless of what they are: to lose weight or to win the next bodybuilding competition.
I am 56 years old with some past medical issues that made me seek out a personal trainer for toning and weight loss. Working with Alena Kuzma has been enjoyable and educational. She is easy to work with, gives me confidence with weights, and more importantly to me, she watches out for my safety. She teaches about nutrition that goes hand in hand with working out, which has been very valuable and helpful. I feel I am making steady progress (after all, it took time to put the weight on). Her rates are very reasonable and I would highly recommend Alena to anyone as a personal trainer! Becky
Tyler is experienced, incredibly knowledgable and tailors my workout program to my specific goals and what works for my family's schedule. Even though I only see him twice a week, we are constantly in contact. Whether it be me asking questions about nutrition and macros or him sending me daily workouts and assessing my soreness; it's as if I have a personal trainer everyday. He clearly loves what he does and he's taking my fitness to a whole other level.
Jordan is an excellent personal trainer! He really has a passion for what he does and it shows. He really motivates you and pushes you to go the extra mile. He keeps things fun and inferesting. I can honestly say I would not be where I am fitness wise right now if it wasn't for working with Jordan. I would highly recommend working with him if you want to get your butt kicked!!
William has been extremely committed to helping me achieve my goal of a healthier lifestyle. I've been working with him since January and continue to see physical results. By changing up the workouts my mind and body are constantly guessing and I never get bored. I would strongly recommend Will as a personal trainer - his expertise will help anyone reach their goals!
Christian is a top notch personal trainer. Professional and focused on my needs.
Over the last five years I've gone through more trainers then I can count. For one reason or another, they never work out. That is until I met Steve. I've been training with Steve for over a year now, and he is a perfect match for me. He doesn't let me walk away from my goals (trust me I've tried). He's motivating, dedicated, and educated in fitness. Working in healthcare, I know a lot about the human body. So it's easy for me to spot a phoney trainer (someone who pretends they know what their talking about). Steve is just the opposite, he is educated and passionate about his career and it shows. ive already referred friends and family to Hoke fitness and have yet to find someone who disagrees with me. I've finally ended my tourtoris search for a trainer, and I encourage everyone to try Hoke fitness so your search can be over too!
I have had amazing success with Coach Drees Training. I have tried just about everything out there and have not gotten where I wanted to be. From other personal trainers, weight loss programs, to nutritionists. I have seen the healthiest and best results from my training with Coach Drees. His expertise in the exercise movements and the proper form in doing so has made a huge difference in my success. I've been working with Coach Drees for about 3 months now and not only do I look better, I feel better. I have more energy, less daily aches and pains, and more confidence in the exercises I do. I highly recommend Coach Drees Training to anyone looking to not only look better but to feel better!
