I could not have asked for a better first experience with a personal trainer. Damion was accommodating, professional, knowledgeable, kind and patient. I can't begin to list all the adjectives to describe what a nice experience it was. I surely am not the typical gym goer and I do have some physical limitations. Damion was reassuring and considerate of my limitations, and found ways around them! I had several sessions with him before I had to stop because of a back injury(which had nothing to do with the training) . I certainly want to get back to it as soon as possible! Thanks Damion for going out of your way to make my personal training sessions a positive experience!!

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.

I was always “somewhat” satisfied with how my body looked and the level of energy I had. But I’m sure this is true for many people... I was unsure of nutritional goals and of course had a few trouble areas that never seemed to budge no matter what. Rob Brinkley has set up a routine, personalized for my needs and I could not be happier with the results. The amount of energy that I feel now, the better knowledge of nutritional needs, and my physical appearance have been amazing. I would highly recommend Rob for anyone searching for a friendly, funny, knowledgeable and supportive personal trainer.

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.

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!

Randy Fobbs was an amazing trainer. He assisted me with weight loss and dieting. Prior to his service, I did not see such dramatic changes in my body. He helped condition my body and taught me the importance of every workout and a clean diet. One of the phrases I'll never forget is that I was over training and he reminded me " we workout to live, not live to workout" . He was able to look at me at tell me if I had something to eat that I shouldn't have. He taught me how to invest in my health and body. For that, I'm grateful. It look about 2mths for me to see the dramatic change. He helped me meet my fitness goal by June 2014. He went above and beyond to create meal plans for me and always being accessible. He was ALWAYS early, so yes he was on time. The quality of work was amazing. I miss his service. I'm actually emotional writing this. I turned so much working with him, words can't express it I don't believe there's anything he could've done better. He had the right amount of everything to make it a pleasant and quality experience.

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.

I enjoyed working with Stedman. I found him encouraging and highly motivating. He would push me to excel at whatever exercises we did and he often was willing to try new things with me. One of the things I enjoyed about working with Stedman was that he never minded me asking questions about what we were doing or why and what it was working. He was confident when I would ask him form related questions and something I found him to excel at was if he didn't know an answer to a question, he would find someone who did know. I found him to be a fantastic teacher and trainer. I would highly recommend hi to anyone looking to push themselves to be the best they can be.

Joshua is one of the best trainers I know. I came to him when I was almost about to give up with my weightloss journey. I met with Joshua and gave him my goals and he gave me the tools needed to reach these goals. Every sessions was something new. He pushes you beyond your limits and when you feel like almost giving up he's right there to cheer you on. I lost over 10 pounds working with Joshua. It may not seem like a lot but it is. Thanks Joahua for everything!

Danny has been my personal trainer for the past few weeks. Within the first two weeks I'd already noticed changes in my body and in the way my clothes fit. Within 4 weeks I saw continued improvement and endurance during activities. Danny continuously challenges me so that I am never comfortable, and it pays off. He's personable and is clearly passionate about his line of work. I tell all my friends how hard he kicks my butt in the gym -- I love bragging about it. Looking forward to continued results.

Keith is awesome! He's very knowledgeable and keeps finding new ways to challenge my body. He has this uncanny ability to push me beyond my comfort zone but not past my body's limit.

I was very skeptical about a personal trainer but Robert made me feel comfortable. He understood my needs and recognized the areas in which I needed more work. The work was hard but he encouraged me the entire duration of the workout and I was actually stronger than I knew I was. I reached my weight loss goals and beyond! I would definitely recommend his services!!

About

I'm Danica Trebel, a life and family dynamics coach, personal trainer, health coach, and oneness blessing facilitator. Knowing the power and the healing that can come from a family united, it's my passion to help empower each person discover their own worth, find their own voice, and share their own greatness with everyone around them. By doing this, we begin to eliminate self-doubts and behaviors, and we walk through the door toward healthy communication, fresher perspectives, and greater faith. A world transformed. It was my life own experiences with eating disorders and the separation from my family that led me to this place of healing and passion to help others. I know first hand what it's like to be the teenage girl who lacks self-confidence and searches for her identity and comfort in food. I also know the impact that "relationship" had on my children, as I was absent from their lives for nearly six years. It was my son going into high school that was my wake-up call, and I haven't looked back since. I've used those experiences, as well as gained more formal education and training, to hone my skills and knowledge of how to help people live their lives to the fullest through simply learning how to communicate, be vulnerable, and be real. When all is said and done, there is truly nothing more valuable than the gift of understanding, and it's my deepest desire for you to have the life with your family that you've always dreamed of having, and it might just be closer than you think! Unpacking. Less Lugging. More Living.
