My experience with Josh has been great! I started seeing my results as early as two weeks into my training with him. He also offers great nutrition advice and ways to keep active on days we don't meet. He has a good way of knowing how far to push you without going past your limits. Definitely would recommend him for others!
My husband and I have been going to Chad for 6 months now. He is a great personal trainer. He really listens to your needs and encourages you to do well. He is very consistent with his training and will work around your schedule. The things I like most is that he also helps you with your nutrition and tells you what to eat! This is huge for us.
Ken has the unique ability to tailor his training to his clients needs and abilities, even as they change on a daily basis. I believe it is due to this that I see the results Im looking for when training with him. Im stronger, more confident, and during training Im frequently surprised to find that I can do more and better than I thought I could. Kens boot camps easily surpass any others I have tried in the past, as he provides consistent attention, guidance, and last, but not least, motivation! When training one on one, I have found that it is like second nature to Ken to adapt his training program to what each individual needs physically, and mentally, to produce the optimal results. If you are looking for a trainer to assist you in reaching your fitness goals, Ken would be my first recommendation.
I just had my first training session with Sarah. It was incredible. She really listens and understands. As someone who suffers from muscle and nerve pain every day due to fibromyalgia, I was concerned that a personal trainer would push my body too much and I would be struggling for a week after. Sarah has put my body at ease. She worked me enough that I feel a burn but my body isn't in agony. I am so happy to have found Sarah and I look forward to many, many more sessions with her! I would highly recommend Sarah to anyone!
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've been training with Brian for almost two months now. Trust me... He is one of the most experienced and committed trainers I've ever seen. He always checking up on the diet and keeps track of myself which is great and I haven't seen that much with the past trainers I've had. He’s a great nutritionist with so much of knowledge. Great diet plans, if you are really motivated to do so. Talking from my experience, I lost over 14 lbs in four weeks. Im really committed and he knows my goals. He knows my limits and how to push myself little more every day. My fitness has increased noticeably. He is very reliable and on time, always set up and ready to start training with an exercise routine planned. He makes it fun and enjoyable to train and he is very motivating and encouraging. He’s a professional trainer and I would have no hesitation in recommending him as your personal trainer if you want to achieve your fitness and health goals. Cheers!
Nick ROCKS. There's no other way to say it! :-). Not only does he really know what he's doing, he's fun and makes training sessions challenging and enjoyable! I have very high standards for a personal trainer, and Nick meets them all. I couldn't be happier with how he is helping me get back to the top of my strength and fitness potential! Thanks, Nick!
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.
I started seeing Eric from a referral by my sister. I was currently doing lab testing and supplementation with my ND, and figured I would let Eric take a shot at my health issues. The first consult I overlapped with my ND, taking Eric's interpretation to her for review and 2nd opinion. Her response to his evaluation was that "he probably has more schooling, experience, and detailed knowledge about this evaluation than I do, so I think you are fine to work with him." I don't have insurance, so the cost of seeing Eric, or seeing my ND was pretty close to the same. After a slow year of testing and supplementation, we saw a few changes in the right direction. It wasn't until I finally started following his diet/exercise recommendations that the changes became much more obvious. I've always been on the "small" side for my weight, so I didn't really think my diet mattered much. Besides, I thought I ate relatively healthy anyways, and had fewer digestive symptoms after following a gluten free diet for the past year. I knew I wasn't in "optimal" health, but I didn't think his diet was necessary at first. But after a year of supplementation, he finally pushed that diet was the next step. Within just a few weeks of REALLY following his recommendations-- getting enough calories, timing of meals, walking every day, and WATER-- I could SEE a difference in my body, and felt a difference in my energy and moods. That let me know, ok ok, he's on to something. I just figured that his process was like my ND in that the blood work shows improvement but nothing I would physically see or feel a difference with. Now, almost two years later, (because of my own stubbornness in not wanting to continue this process) even though I still have some residual health issues, I also have the faith that by listening and really DOING what Eric recommends, we will be able to positively address those issues as well. Eric has helped me see my health like playing a sport. You have to commit to practicing the little things everyday, making good habits everyday, or else you will never see the progress you really are wanting to achieve. You can't be a successful athlete without practicing everyday. In the same, I can't expect to be in optimal health if I'm not willing to follow my "coaches" training recommendations on a consistent basis. When I do what he says, things work like they should...shouldn't that be enough proof for me? We will see in the next year. Regardless, Eric has shown he knows what he is doing, and has taught me to believe his ability to accurately evaluate and interpret what is needed for my optimal health...its up to me to actually follow through.
What I like best about Ted Owens is that he is smart, well educated, and funny. I picked Ted nearly a year ago to be part of a team of experts I was then assembling to REMAKE myself at age sixty-eight. I had packed on too many pounds, let my joints get stiff because of arthritis, and neglected both diet and exercise for over a decade. For several months I had also suffered a mysterious pain that limited movement in one arm and shouldera pain that even my orthopedic surgeon seemed unable to diagnose, let alone to fix. Ted has been very successful in motivating me to move again. We began slowly by repairing and strengthening my too long unchallenged muscles. Because of his multiple degrees and certifications, Ted simply knows more about the human body and how it works than do most folks who call themselves trainers. He is constantly able to adjust workouts to meet the needs and limitations of each client, whether that person is twenty or seventy. If one exercise hurts too much, hes always got another in mind that does not hurt but will accomplish the same end. It took a while, but the pain in my arm went away altogether. Not only that, my knee joints are now both stronger and more flexible than they have been in years. I no longer choose to sit out of family activities. In fact, I astounded my grown children last fall by joining them on a three-mile hike into the woods (six miles round trip!!) while vacationing in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia. Rather than following, I set the pace and led all of the young adults up the trail and then quickly climbed to the top of a waterfall while they were busy playing with my grandchildren in the stream sixty feet below. I wasnt even winded when we were caught in a sudden thunderstorm and ran most of the way back to our car. Want to feel twenty years younger, a great deal fitter, and much happier with yourself? Hire Ted.
I appreciated Jordan's guidance as my Personal Training because he kept me accountable and also modified our sessions, catering to some injuries I have. My experience with him has been great.
Adi has been a great influence on me even after just a week! Her home training is excellent and challenging. I also took her food demo class and that was great! She was very clear and had specific dietary recommendations for me and my family that are easy to follow. She is prompt, fun, and professional with lots of personal training and nutrition expertise. So glad I found her!
Rebecca is an amazing yoga instructor! She is so conscientious in giving the best instruction, making certain the atmosphere is calming and positioning is correct to be beneficial. I highly recommend Rebecca as a fitness trainer; she is extremely positive and has a fantastic temperament!! I was amazed how she helped my breathing while exercising!
I trained with Jill for three months and have nothing but great things to say about my experience! Before training with Jill, I was active but wasn't seeing any results. She helped me get on track with nutrition and I saw great results not only physically but also mentally! Jill is fun to work with and very motivational. Thank you Jill for helping me get my fitness and nutrition in balance, I feel like a new person!!!
Dhruv is dedicated and focused guy. In my 1st meeting with him, I was surprised to see someone who was interested in asking questions about me instead of showing packages and enrolling me for the fitness training. he has a very logical thought process, he understands the pain of 'being out of shape' and provides training in a very practical / custom training routine that helps motivate you to get up and work hard. Constantly pushes the envelope. He enjoys transforming people's priorities around eating and exercise, he believes in healthy living. he enjoys football and I can truly call up on him as a 'friend'. Highly Professional !!!!
Erica is very warm, professional, and knowledgable. I'm happy to work with her knowing I'm getting the proper nutrients and doing the correct techniques and exercises to reach my optimal health and most beautiful body. She's super helpful!
Did personal training Philip and got amazing results. He is very detailed on how movements are to be done to ensure great results and keep you safe.
Laurie is extremely knowledgeable and tailors my plans just for me. She has helped me work through injury/soreness/inflexibility with each stage of our journey together. We have worked together for several years now and I wouldn't use anyone else! She's awesome!
Ryan invests in the goals of each one of his clients, maintains accountability, and pushes you to next level training with both proper form and fun.
Great training experience and thought it is a really good workout!
