John is a fantastic trainer. Let me just say, I'm not a newbie to the gym at all. I've been going since 2012. My problem never had to do with getting up and going to the gym but my intensity at the gym seemed to be lacking. I've tried 2 other trainers before with almost zero results. It was almost as if they didn't really care about my goals and they were happy that I already cut the check. So, needless to say I wasn’t looking forward to getting another one. However, this time it was different. My diet was much better and my goal wasn’t weight related this time. My goal was to look good and feel good. I wanted that 6 pack! But again, how could this trainer do anything else for me that I wasn’t already doing on my own? I was about to find out. I had my free 1on1 personal training to try him out and see if I thought it would work for me. First off, that was awesome. I loved that I got to try him out before hand to see if he fit. That training session was killer. Then, I had my first boot camp class with him and wow! He kicked my butt. And the second and the third boot camp class kept getting more and more challenging. I couldn’t believe it. I used to go to the gym and get on the elliptical and burn X amount of calories in 45 minutes and go to work feeling like I could have probably done another 45. After one of his boot camp classes I am drenched in sweat and passed out on the floor. And the best part, I feel ACCOMPLISHED afterwards. Like it wasn’t a waste of time and that I truly gave it my all. And even better, I crave the next class I have with him because there’s not another workout like it.
I have three favorite things about John compared to the other trainers I’ve had. First off, he’s in shape. The worst part is trying to get trained by someone who doesn’t do what they preach. Second, which is probably my favorite, is that he is not standing on the sidelines yelling at you to work. At his boot camp classes, he is right there with you working hard and sweating. He’s doing the exact same workouts with you so I use it as leverage to try and keep up with him! Third, you know he loves his job and even better that he loves to train those that want to change their bodies for the better. Your goal is his goal. And he’s even training for a competition of his own so you only get dedication from this guy!!
All in all, John is awesome and I’ve already recommended him to multiple of my girlfriends who are trying to get in a shape because he is that good. But be prepared to work and sweat if you come to one of his boot camp classes!!
