Elton has been my personal trainer for a few months now, and with his guidance He is very knowledgeable about the right exercise regiment, nutrition, and has a wonderful disposition. For someone who does not like to exercise, he has motivated me to keep my body moving and (with nutritional advise) to be mindful of my eating habits; and with that, I have lost 15+ pounds (with minimal effort). He has proven to be very professional, effective, and inspirational. I have referred several people to him & they too are very satisfied with his services.

Renard and the Renovate Fitness team were awesome. I love the fact that you can get personal training, but in a small group setting (5-8 people during the sessions I went to). At Renovate, trainers are supportive and they push you and encourage you to do better for yourself. I loved my results and the only reason I am leaving, is because I moved :( Literally the best fitness center in Durham! - Kiki Hicks

I've only had one session so far, but I'm very, very impressed. I was worried a personal trainer would be overkill for what I wanted, which is mostly help with flexibility issues and nagging hip soreness. I can already tell she's going to be a great help. She's murder with that foam roller, but that's just what I need! She's also a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her.

About

Body by Design is the fourth personal trainer that I have worked with, and Joe, Sara and the rest of the team have given me the most effective workout sessions I have ever had. In just a few weeks friends and family began talking about how much weight I had lost and how good I looked. I didn’t tell them that it wasn’t really weight loss (I didn’t tell anyone I was working with a trainer ;-) but that it was weight training that had made me stronger, healthier, and given me a more fit physique. I previously worked with some other trainers for over a year and never got such notice. The most amazing thing though was that, after just about a month of training and strengthening my lower body, my long-standing plantar fasciitis went away. I had previously had physical therapy, orthotics and even injections that did not work. Getting in shape with someone who knows what they are doing can make all the difference, even with life’s aches and pains of aging. Sarah (and all of Joe’s team at Body by Design) is knowledgeable, competent, and always very professional. Joe is also up to date on the latest research and information in health, medicine and fitness and uses that information to constantly make Body by Design a better place. Any time I ask for further information on other subjects, such as nutrition, he immediately responds and forwards the information. I don't think North Carolina has a more informed, professional, and effective trainer! My workouts at Body by Design are always unique and keep me from plateauing. One of their best skills is in making sure that your body develops muscle in a balanced and efficient way so as to avoid injury in both sports and in everyday life. I have been an athlete and have worked out most of my life, but my trainers at Body by Design continue to challenge me in my workouts and I have never been more fit. They tailor workouts for each individual and will not march anyone down the wrong path with fads like crossfit or short-term fixes like starvation diets. They are truly interested in making a positive impact on their clients' lives - for the rest of their lives.

Paul was dedicated and effective in training my son, John, in the sport of rowing. Because of the work Paul did with John, he made the crew team and he'd never crewed in his life! Paul is friendly and supportive! I highly recommend him for personal training.

Working with Mr. Armah has been a challenging experience and I wouldn't change it for the world. He is motivating, caring, and tough all rolled up in one, which is a good recipe for a personal trainer. If you want consistent, long lasting result he is your man. Best Trainer Ever!

Alecia is currently assisting me with personal training at Lifetime Fitness. I have utilized several trainers over the past two years, and I can honestly say that none of them have taken as much time with me as Alecia. She corrects my form, provides workout plans, and she’s available if I have questions. Most importantly she holds me accountable, and doesn’t allow me to make excuses. What I appreciate the most is she values my time. She meets me at each session on time, and we complete the session on time. My overall experience has been amazing. I am impressed by Alecia’s dedication, passion, drive, and professionalism. I would not change anything about my experience. I am sure she will continue to learn new ways to help her clients. If you are looking to change your lifestyle and transform your body, Alecia is the trainer for you.

About

Charles is a remarkable personal trainer. I had always been active in the gym but never realized my full potential until I met with Charles. He asked me, "why dont we set our goal for a bodybuilding competition?" I never thought that that would even be feasible but sure enough under his instruction and guidance I ended up placing third at an NGA sponsored bodybuilding event. I continued to compete until I ended up moving to Pennsylvania. I cannot say how much this man has helped me; not only from a fitness aspect but he helped me grow as a person. I cannot say enough about how great of an experience it was to work with Charles.

Natalie is fantastic. All around. I find that she has a creative, scientific, and systematic approach to helping me reach my goals. She has a lot of knowledge and some really good practical experience. I have struggled with fitness and food all my life and Natalie has been able to engage me throughout my process since I have known her. She gives me excellent advice about fitness and food, she seems to have a million different strategies to address problems so that we pick the right one for me, and she has a very informed background. I find that she is patient, really willing and interested in helping me and she makes me feel comfortable doing everything or talking about the parts that are hard. I know she has helped me tremendously in motivation, in information, and in feeling safe throughout the process. I think working with Natalie makes me better able to achieve my goals. I highly, highly, recommend her.

It was a pleasure working with Clara! She helped me get back on my feet, after struggling with my weight. Clara encouraged me all the way through. She reinforced me during our workouts every time I felt like giving up. Thanks to her dedication and commitment I was able to loose weight, by following a meal plan and a workout routine. Clara is the best person you could ever meet! I would highly recommend her services because she CARES about your needs and long-term goals.

My name is Jake Giamoni and I have been practicing personal training in the local area for the past 4 years. I am a graduate of North Carolina State in 2005. While at NCSU, I was the captain of the wrestling team and won 3 individual Atlantic Coast Conference titles. I hold multiple certifications (IFTA, CPR & AED, Kinesis, TRX) and have experience with a wide range of clients. Along with my certifications, I am also an ex-college instructor of Kinesiology(the study of human movement) at Wake Technical Community College. I have produced many success stories in my 4 years in the business and would be happy to let you contact one of my current or past clients as a reference. I am currently employed by Seaboard Fitness, a beautiful facility in downtown Raleigh. However, I am very open to making housecalls, outdoor workouts, or even coming to your gym of choice. My rates will vary based on location and the specific type of training we will be doing. That being said, I never let money stand in the way of my clients health and will try my hardest to make training affordable for you. Give me a call and we can get started as soon as possible. Your first session is on me! Jake Giamoni CPT
