Joel is an extremely knowledgeable and talented trainer. This guy seriously knows what he is doing, which is a big deal for people like me that do not have time and money to waste on a template workout program at a gym. He is very obviously very experienced and has the education to back up what he is doing. I contacted Joel to interview him after reviewing the company web site and we extremely impressed with the no pressure, partnership feel immediately. As a fat Information Technology guy, I have never been athletic in my life and do not expect to be contacted for the NFL draft anytime soon, but at 46, I am not about to lounge my way into obesity like most of the men in my industry and community. On a flight to Dallas, I realized that the tray table was resting on my guy. This was a lifestyle change for me and I decided to commit. Joel helped me do just that and I am never slowing down again. I am in phase two of a 6 month program and the results are remarkable. For the first time in many years, I feel strong again and have increased my endurance dramatically. Joel keeps it serious and fun at the same time. He is a very cool, respectful, and business minded person, and meets you exactly where you are. He wasted no time working to correct years of bad gym efforts and increased my flexibility in order to get the exercises right. There is nothing worse than doing exercises the wrong way. I found that out quickly into the program. Joel also offers nutrition consulting, which I found to be far more enlightening and appropriate for me apart from other experiences with nutritionists. I know what I can cook and Joels team helped me identified a reasonable diet that doesnt require a trip to an esoteric whole foods store miles from my house. Also, his team helped me decide which diet decisions to make while I am on the road. Restaurants like fat guys like me and much of the food is like bait on a hook. All of the information that we discussed makes sense and now I know what to do within the bounds of my busy schedule. In less than 6 weeks, I have lost enough fat weight and gained muscle to see a significant difference. However, the real difference is with the confidence and the motivation to keep on track. With the concierge model, I can continue to keep my busy schedule without trips to a gym where the training help is not even close to the level of quality that Joel brings. If you are a busy professional and you want results and are willing to work, contact Joel immediately and get started. I cant wait to write a follow-up to this endorsement in another few months because I am convinced that results are going to be amazing. Final thought; I found that my mental state was 90% of the problem. Joel and his team helped me realize that I can do this and be successful in meeting my goals. Getting your head right is something only you can do, but once your there, Joel capitalizes on it and gets it done.
Ali is by far the best nutritionist you'll find. She is the ONLY one to actually answer ME instead of an automatic response! She takes the time to get to know YOU and why you are there to meet with her. She learns everything she needs to know about you instead of you walking in and saying "I want to lose 10lbs" and she then hands you a "plan" to follow. She s'more than that! She has an outstanding background and is very knowledgeable and passionate about what she does. --She also understands may pay situation and works with me around it instead of pushing me out the door. --I'm also VERY picky, and where I feel most people would not want to work with me, she's willing to take on the challenge and help me break my pickiness. I HIGHLY recommend Ali!! :)
I hired Harry to write me a nutrition plan. Though he is a trainer, I work on my own program at the gym and did not want to change that. He took the time to look into what I was doing, was supportive, added a few pointers and then wrote me a nutrition plan. The nutrition plan is great- been following it a little over a week and I've lost more weight than expected PLUS my workouts are stronger than ever AND I have gone from needing 3 cups of coffee and 2 caffeine pills in the morning to one small cup of coffee. That alone is priceless. Plus the absence of processed sugar helps make my skin look better. The plan is great- he gave me some meal ideas, plus the macros so I could customize it, as well as a list of foods.... good thru bad. It's a very sustainable program, a good mix of carbs, fats and proteins, so I'm not eating 3 weird shakes a day, no carbs and only fish or anything weird like that. I look forward to all of my meals. I've done a lot of diets... paleo,low fat, primal, vegan, vegetarian, atkins, South Beach on and on and none have left me feeling this energized with such immediate results. And it feels like a long term solution. Usually 1 week on a diet has me wanting to eat whatever I can't have, but I don't even want the junk right now. Definitely give Harry a shot if you need a nutrition plan. Though I did not use him for training, he took the time to understand what I was doing, had respect for it and encouraged me to keep it up versus trying to sell me training. Going to bet he knows his stuff in the gym as well.
I have never worked with a nutritionist before (probably why I need one now, lol) but Heather has made me feel totally comfortable and answers all my questions fully. She makes herself available any time for her clients and that is so important for me with my work schedule and she never makes me feel like I'm bothering her. She's like consulting with a friend I've known for years but with better advice (: I'm pretty early in my program so I can't speak to long term results but I'm only part way through the first week and I can already feel a difference from just these few days! I should have done this years ago and would have had I known how nice it is to have a helping hand in getting my life back together.
I began using Carol after learning that I had early stage cancer on my vocal cord. I was fortunate that the cancer was treatable with surgery, but I wanted to give myself the best possible chance of remaining cancer free. After researching the impact of diet on cancer I felt like I needed a nutritionist who would work with me to translate all the data and design a plan that made sense. I didn't want to inconvenience my family with what might be an unusual diet, so I also wanted someone who would prepare meals for me so I could have food ready to eat for lunches and dinner. I've been using Carol's services as both Nutritionist and Chef for over 6 months now and I would strongly recommend her to anyone who's interested in a healthy diet but not willing to sacrifice great tasting food in the bargain! Carol has designed meal plans, shopped and prepared meals for me that are delicious and provide excellent sources of foods known to help the immune system protect against the threat of cancer. I'm very athletic, and I was concerned that the change in diet would lave me with less energy for my workouts. I was thrilled to find that it was just the opposite. I've never felt better. Carol is a warm and caring person and is very enthusiastic about sharing her knowledge on how healthy eating habits impact the digestive process and immune system. If you have questions about how to eat better and love every bite, you should try her..
Debbie is great to work with. Her commitment and passion drives me to be better. Not only does Debbie motivate me to exercise but also brings great passion to a healthy lifestyle and diet. Best ever to work with!!!!
Christine truly "walks the walk". She personally does all of the things that she recommends to others. The Shakeology meal replacement shake is amazing! I love the fact that she is a "personal" Trainer....everyone of her Clients become like family to her. You will NOT be treated like a "number" as you have in the past going to a typical gym. No matter your fitness level, she will customize a program just for YOU. Her most recent success story is a young 70 year old. I'm loving the P90x 3 that I purchased from her, and I just turned 48 years old. I've also used many food ideas from her. As an added benefit, she is also a Certified Nutritionist. No exercise program will work unless you are correctly fueling your body. That doesn't mean food deprivation. Hire her and you will look and feel better than you ever have in your life!
Justine helped me sculpt my rocking bod! With her assistance I lost 10lbs and maintained a vegan lifestyle. She encouraged me every step of the way by leading a healthy life herself. Her honest approach is very helpful for those of us who need an honest opinion in life. If you need a kick in the butt then she is your girl! 😁
