10. Body by Design Studios
- 22 years in business
- 15 hires on Thumbtack
"Im in my early 70s and while in better shape than many of my peers, I was disappointed with my strength and my endurance, and I was dissatisfied in how my body shape was beginning to change. Part of this was due to back problems and a recent back surgery I had to correct sciatica.
I had tried one Raleigh area personal trainer and think that helped to aggravate my back before surgery, so I was really leery about trying another one but I knew I needed help to look and feel better.
I heard about Joe Augustine and his team at Body by Design Studio from a nurse at my doctors office and went in for my free trial a few months ago. I can tell you that the experience has been life-changing for me! Going two times a week now for five months I feel like I did 20 years ago. I think I actually look better now!
With the help of Joe and the Body by Design staff I have build muscle, my back is pain free and strong, and my waist is small. The workouts are always different, always challenging and always productive. I leave feeling tired but energized and my friends and family notice the difference too!
Body by Design is private, professional and their program just works.
The best thing now is that they have just opened a second studio in my North Raleigh neighborhood, so now I dont have to drive more than 5 minutes to get there.
I highly recommend them if you are considering hiring a trainer and you at least owe it to yourself to give them a try, because theyll give you a free session just to judge for yourself. They are the best in Raleigh in my book."
