I have been working with Michael for 2 years. He is absolutely everything I was looking for in a personal trainer. Very affordable which has enabled me to keep up at least 2-3 sessions per week which is essential for me because without our scheduled sessions, I simply won't make myself go to the gym. I've tried many gym memberships, group classes, meetups, etc, etc, etc over the years and the truth is, exercising just isn't my thing. But it is Michael's thing. He practices what he teaches. The other thing I love is he is not one of those stereotypical, over-the-top personalities. He is encouraging but not in that "omg! you're doing sooooo great!" way. I find that very annoying with other trainers. On the flip side, he also isn't in my face yelling which I do not find motivating either. I'm not the "boot camp" type, personally. But, I have a feeling he has that in him if you need it, lol! :) Overall, he has kept me going these last two years and I owe him far more than he will ever know for that. I could not recommend him more highly. Oh, and yes, I am seeing great results!!

Mike is an AWESOME personal trainer. He works around your schedule and very flexible. He is willing to travel to you and that was a plus. We would have our sessions at my apartment gym. Mike is also great with nutrition advice. He got me on the right track and I know if there was anything I had a question about he would steer me in the right direction. Definitely a great investment and will be continuing to work with him to reach my goals.

Mike is a Personal Trainer/Nutritionist that helped me lose weight and learn more about proper weight management, diet and exercise. He is easy going, personable, and professional. His rates are very reasonable, and I was happy with the results I was seeing. He is very serious about helping others and it reflects in his approach to me as a client.

Courtney tailors each workout to reach your goals whether that is to increase cardio endurance and/or to become more toned. He's flexible with his schedule and easy to work with in additional to assisting with healthy meal planning. I have seen a difference is my physical appearance, energy, and strength. I would fully recommend him because he is a great personal trainer.

This was my first time exploring a personal trainer and I must say it was a good experience. Courtney motivates without that "drill sergeant" mentality and doesn't beat you up if you happen to indulge and eat what you probably shouldn't have. He will give suggestions as to what to eat and what to expect.

My daughter and I signed up with with Terry at HBF in late December of last year. I've been on my meal plan going into 3 weeks and I can already tell a difference and see that I've lost inches in my waist. I don't think of the meal plan as a diet and I actually enjoy the food. Terry has been instrumental in his dedication in seeing me succeed. The personal training that I'm receiving is top notch and I look coward to the results.

Initially, I wanted Terry to just help me lost weight because it had gotten out of control for me. Terry has helped me understand what overall health means. He has developed customized meal plans as well as customized workout plans that not only help me lose weight but become healthier. I could not recommend him more highly to anyone that is seeking a personal trainer.

Simply put, Johanna is a great trainer. She is very knowledgeable as a trainer and is enthusiastic about helping others. Since I started with Johanna, I can honestly say that she has been nothing but the absolute best. Johanna got rid of all of the fears I had with beginning a new training regime, and till this day she continues to be the perfect example of what a personal trainer should be. Johanna was easily welcomed into my gym, and puts any piece of equipment to good use. She’s firm without being too pushy, and gets the job done. I would highly recommend Johanna as a personal trainer, and look forward to working with her even when I pass my personal goals.

Aside from being an awesome zumba instructor, she's an amazing trainer. She's been my personal trainer since Sept and she's already helped me accomplish some of my goals. She gives me the encouragement I need to continue to work hard and see results. She's a great motivator. I've learned so much from her that I'm able to use good form when performing various exercises.  She also took a look at my eating habits and was able to provide so easy suggestions. Thankfully, they weren't so bad.

Her classes are energetic and pumped up. She goes out of her way to accommodate you with scheduling. I've taken her classes for almost a year. I would always recommend her.

Sherry has been my personal trainer for three years and I credit her with all of my understanding of physical fitness. This ranges from the importance of weight training to proper nutrition. She holds you accountable for your own health so you understand that long term goals are driven by you with the best navigation by her. She's easy to talk to, open and understanding to all levels of fitness. I continue to better myself outside the gym because of her example and encouragement.

I've been working out with Daniel for nearly four years and his classes have completely changed how I approach fitness and my personal training. Daniel incorporates many different styles and approaches to training including boxing, sleds, sandbags, kettlebells, bands, and body-weight exercises. Each class works your conditioning, as well as your strength and balance. His sessions continue to evolve and adapt with his clients and the industry to ensure that each class is different and meets the needs of members, while still continuing to challenge and push everyone to the next level. I would highly recommend EDGE Performance Training to anyone seriously interested in fitness and improving their workouts.

I have been visiting Edge for personal training/ group classes for about the last 6 months. I highly recommend the gym for those looking to train with individualized support and attention. The gym has clients that have been training with the owner, Daniel, over the years, giving it a more personal feel. Conveniently located right outside of Uptown, Edge Fitness has an open floor plan (think former warehouse space), with all the equipment neatly laid out (weights, cardio, boxing etc). Classes and personal training sessions push you, regardless of your fitness level. Tip: Purchasing training classes also gives you access to gym facilities outside of your training sessions.

I have been working out for about 5 years. I'm 53 years old and was always thin but never muscular or toned . My 5 years at the gym with a trainer on and off got me in very good shape . I wanted to step it up and get in the very best shape I could and look like I could compete in a show, but without actually competing. That's when I started elite training with Ishmael. He is the best trainer I've ever worked with . He pushed me and made me realize that I can become strong and look as great as I wanted to. His workouts are tough.. But after you are done, you feel so awesome , and the results are amazing !! I'm toned, muscular, I have abs and in the best shape I have ever been in my life ! I would still be training with him if he didn't move away !! Whether you are a beginner or in great shape, Ishmael will get you where you want to go! The BEST trainer ever😀

Ishmael started training with me after I had become very out of shape and overweight. I had no motivation to work out until I started training with him. His style of training was extremely effective in motivating me to work hard at the gym. Since training with him I have found a new passion in working out. Ishmael also developed a diet plan for me that actually works. It's strict a diet plan but it's easy to follow and has resulted in rapid weight loss. Ishmael is not only a great fitness trainer but is also very knowledgeable in nutrition. Ishmael is an excellent motivator and truly cares about the people he is training.

I've been working with Candice since January. This is my first experience with a personal trainer and it's been excellent. When we started I had back issues and she thoroughly research my problem and to determine the best program to strengthen my back and to be sure we didn't do anything to harm it. I also wanted to improve my golf game and she researched and incorporated exercises into our program for that as well. My back feels so much better and I played two rounds of pretty good golf this weekend! She is extremely conscience, reliable and flexible and she really does her homework. She documents every session to determine progress and she is always positive, encouraging and complimentary on a job well done. She actually makes our sessions fun! I would not hesitate to recommend Candice and actually have already done so with friends.

He always works out beside me so it doesn't feel like he's just standing around watching over me like most trainers do. He truly gives you a great experience!

I am training with Erik Pedrow and believe he is one of the most committed and gifted trainers around. Fitness is a passion for Erik; and it's infectious. He is college educated, smart, and keeps up with the latest in physiology and nutritional research. Erik has a keen talent for transforming his knowledge of hard science into an effective, challenging, and fun program that is geared just for you. Erik took note my goals, likes, dislikes, and current physical ability to create a customized strength building and workout program. I believe that without Erik's 1-on-1 training I would not have progressed as quickly and safely as with a one-size-fits-all program found at other gyms. Erik keeps me motivated and moving in the right direction to achieve my fitness and strength goals. Erik trains his clients at Masters Gym which is an awesome "urban" gym with an unbelievable sound system that makes workouts fun!

I heard about Erik's Fitness from a friend of mine so I decided to try it out. At first, I didn't know what my level of commitment would be, but after the first few sessions, I began feeling so fantastic afterwards that I knew I was hooked. I never thought about personal training, thinking that I could do it all myself, but Erik showed me that there is so much more to a work out than anything an internet routine can provide. Not only do I see the results I was hoping for, but I can feel that my body is more balanced and working at a higher capacity than it did before. Erik's knowledge of fitness, and his enthusiasm to see you succeed inspires you to work your hardest and keeps you looking and feeling great. This guy is the man, and I encourage everyone to come in and see what real personal training can do for them.

I started with Erik almost three months ago and have seen amazing results. He has motivated me to not only workout, but to be healthy in all aspects of my life. Whether it be workouts or nutrition, Erik really knows his stuff and is able to apply it on a personal level. We don't just workout, we have fun doing it. I am currently benching and squatting more than I ever did in high school, where I was working out five or more times a week. The experience has been extremely worthwhile and I would recommend Erik to anyone looking for a trainer!

Having only worked out with friends in the past I was excited but unsure about having a personal trainer. When researching trainers in the area I was astounded by the prices and knew that it was never going to happen, until I happened to get a message from Johnathon at Lincolnton Personal Trainer. Not only was Johnathon affordable, but his messages to discuss goals and organize plans were prompt, and well thought out. Even after becoming a client, Johnathon will stay in contact with you regularly. Going to work out alone can be very intimidating to everyone. However, Johnathon makes working out a very relaxed and stress free environment. His number one focus is on the safety and well-being of his clients, and always explains the purpose of proper form and how it prevents injury. Johnathon also keeps up with the amount of progress you are making with every specific workout and will inform you when it is time to go to the next weight level. He will only push you to what he knows you can do. It certainly is not easy at times, but the conversations and good laughs help you to forget about the pain. If you are looking for or are considering getting a personal trainer, I would highly recommend talking to Johnathon.

In the last 10+ years, Sydney is the only coach/trainer that I have found with dynamic range, sensitivity, genuine respect, and awareness to cater her training, whether you're a competitive athlete or just trying to get back in shape. She deeply cares about helping people get better/healthier, but she doesn't force it. She has helped me figure out what I want, rather than what she wants, which is rare in this industry where it's easy to cop-out and say, "take a few vitamins, do horrible workouts, juice cleanse, and you'll be fine." The list is endless, but I can't say enough about what a great trainer she is, and an even better person.
