"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."
