Chad individualizes your fitness goals and needs with expert knowledge of fitness and nutrition. Ive recommend him to my famy and friends.
I am one month into my personal trainer experience with David and my expectations have been exceeded. He listens! For the first time, I feel like I am getting a training program tailored just for me. He has paired fitness with nutrition to help reach my goals. He is supportive, but yet keeps me challenged.
I have met with Brian once so far and was impressed with his teaching method and dedication to his clients. I had a great first work out and he followed up with me the next day to see how I was doing. So far so good, I am excited to see where my progress will go.
Abu is amazing as a fitness trainer! He stays by your side, counts for and motivates you to teach your goals! His expert knowledge in fitness and nutrition helped me to become physically fit! I lost 15 pounds and gained more muscle! He is the best of the best!
At first I didn't know what to expect. I didn't know anyone who could recommend a nutritionist to me and when I looked online, I became a bit wary of whether or not it would be worth it to seek out a nutritionist on my own. But, not only was Cara accommodating schedule wise--so I could meet with her at a convenient time and location--she also provided me with great information, encouragement and steps I could take in order to further improve my health over time. Definitely glad I scheduled an appointment.
When I started working with Jon, he took the time to learn my specific goals, & tailor a workout and diet plan to meet each one. He was very encouraging and motivating. He held me accountable and increased the challenge of our sessions to keep me progressing. He was great at educating me so that I could continue to find success independently. As someone who has never been athletic, he made healthy habits and exercise obtainable & even enjoyable for me!
To say the last year of my life has been hectic is an understatement. In October of 09, I lost my dad very unexpectedly. Then, another blow, my mom went in to the hospital for routine surgery and ended up on a ventilator and in ICU just 6 weeks after my dad passed away. After over 2 months in the hospital, she was able to come home with physical therapy and a home health nurse. (Thank God!) After all that, my family was still in the process of running my dads business as we waited for a buyer. Oh, have I mentioned that I have 2 very active boys who play several sports, a full time outside the home job and many other activities that we are involved in? Time for exercise? Um, I dont think so. Fast Food trips? You betcha! Easy, convenient and cooking was one less thing I had to deal with. Plus, I was way too busy to deal with worrying about what I should be eating and how I should be handling stress. If I swept it under the carpet, itll all go away right? Wrong! Exhaustion, illness and a few extra pounds started to sink in. The weather started to change and get warmer. The thought of having to put on a shorts or (gasp!) a swimsuit seemed like a nightmare. All the while complaining to my husband about how I dont have time get everything done in a day let alone ADD a workout. He did his best to still be understanding of what I was going through emotionally and try to help me see that exercise would help. Oh Id take a walk, try to eat a salad here and there. But it didnt really make much of a difference. Then, I saw the lifestyle changes one of my very close friends was making. Brandi was a busy mom and had an amazing transformation! She encouraged me along the way to join her, but I shrugged her off at first. How could I possibly commit to that? Then I saw her final pictures. (phenomenal!!!) It was time to do something for me. I emailed Hitch Fit the following week. I was put in contact with expert trainer James Hanton. He was very professional and agreed to meet with me before I made a decision about my plan or if I even wanted to commit to it. He was very patient and he listened to me. I was embarrassed when he asked me about my eating and exercise habits, but he never flinched or acted like I was doing anything wrong. He just listened. He asked how quickly I wanted to see results. I answered, 12 weeks., half hoping hed tell me that it was impossible. Instead he said, You can do it! After I left the initial consultation, I called my husband. He encouraged me and told me he had my back. You should do it, Andrea and I know you can. I decided to get going right away. No use it putting it off! After my first training session with James, I cried the whole way home. Not so much because I hurt from the pain of working out (well maybe a little bit) but more because I did it! I took the first steps to a healthy lifestyle and I knew from that point on I was 110% committed. After the first couple of weeks of sore muscles, I really started to enjoy the workouts. The designed meal plan was easy to follow and with a few tips from James, I even got a few new recipes to mix it up a bit. James was enthusiastic and positive every step of the way. He was flexible with my schedule if I needed to make a last minute change and he kept me on track and my eye on the prize! There were many times that I didnt think I could lift another pound, do one more push up or hold my position one more second. But I did! Just behind me Id hear Jamess infamous battle cry, GET IT! GET IT! And I pushed harder. I wanted it more and more with every pound I lost. My schedule was and is still crazy. But Ive learned to manage my time better and everything still gets done. And at the end of 12 weeks, there I was, forever changed! I dont think of this as the end of a transformation. Its just the beginning of a new lifestyle for me. I can deal with stress in better ways and make better choices. James, thank you for your encouragement and faith in me! I am truly grateful for all you have done. To my boys, thank you for your patience with me and for never complaining about a trip to the gym or for eating more veggies. (I told you we wouldnt miss pop in the house!) And to my wonderful hubby, I couldnt have done this at all without you. Thanks for making me feel beautiful every step of the way.
Dhruv is an excellent personal trainer. He is quickly able to assess the needs of a client and understands the clients strengths and limitations. He customizes his workouts based on the client's needs and abilities. He is friendly and personable, and very knowledgeable - he can talk sports and politics/current affairs with the best of them and make you forget the pain of the workout. At the same time he is also a taskmaster, in a "good cop bad cop" sense. He keeps the client motivated, but is also focused on pushing the client hard enough to coax him out of his comfort zone. Working out with Dhruv is almost a guarantee to get good results. I would highly recommend his services.
Eric has been awesome to work with and really helpful with getting my diet and health on track. I’d highly recommend using him!
She is such a great nutritionist and knows her stuff, i love that she really tries to figure what is best for me and not the majority. Very easy to talk to and gives lots of advice and coaching!
Bodies is an awesome facillity which really focuses on creating a family atmosphere. They truly aim to help clients make life changes to improve their health. The trainers and staff are alwasy very encouraging!
After meeting with Rebecca I feel more educated and prepared to eat healthier. I have a few medical concerns and pretty extensive prior knowledge because I tried a bunch that didn't work. She stream lined a program for me and made me feel that I have an ally in my weight loss journey.
As a dietitian, Dianna is knowledgeable, straightforward, and very approachable when sharing nutrition advice. As a person, she is reliable, easy to work with, and very honest. And her creativity in the kitchen is unmatched! It's very apparent that she's passionate about helping her clients by meeting them where they're at and seeing them through from start to finish in a way that's custom tailored to their needs and wants.
