Dewayne was by far the best trainer I've work with since hiring personal trainers in 2006

Greg is the ultimate professional honestly the most professional trainer I've ever met and I've met many "trainers". Greg made me feel very comfortable starting with our first email. He pushes me through my workout in such a positive way that I'm surprised at what I am capable of doing. Extremely happy. We will be working together for a long time.

One word: Transformative. If I were asked to name one person who "brought the groove back" to training, it would be Kadian (a.k.a. Niko) 1. Professional 2. Knows what he's doing and talking about. He is a science guy buy doesn't make you listen to a whole science lecture while you're trying to get the position right and count your reps (unlike some trainers.) 3. Listens to your individual needs, and will adjust accordingly 4. Approachable, motivational, and most importantly, makes you look forward to your next session! I've always dreaded working with trainers, but love going to the gym generally (machines used to be heaven!). But I needed to stir things up and my routine was getting too boring, and thankfully, I was sent this angel to guide me. Location is great for me and I look forward to our next session.

I have hired many trainers throughout my life, and I can say with much assurance that none have met the standard that Charles has displayed. Not only does he come on time and work around my schedule, but since I've hired him I have seen a significant change in the shape of my body, as well as what I've been putting into my body. I cannot thank Charles enough.

Having Rhonda as my personal trainer was an absolutely wonderful experience. She is patient, professional, and reliable. She took the time to understand my needs, and helped me improve where I needed it most. She educates her clients in the process by teaching proper form and informing them which muscles are being targeted with each workout. She is extremely knowledgeable and just an overall wonderful person to work with. Our sessions always flew by because she made the workouts fun and effective. I’ve definitely incorporated her advice in my own workouts at the gym. I highly recommend her!

For the longest time I have been an avid runner and managed to keep my weight down without a gym or trainer. After experiencing shin pain and neglecting my upper body I sought out a trainer. After a 'functional movement assessment' I was prescribed exercises to correct imbalances from chronic running and it has helped me alleviate my shin splints and increase my upper body strength which even relieved my carpal tunnel pains. BONUS: boxing workouts & yoga!!

I found Maik through Thumbtack, never having worked with a trainer before. I am not a gym person, and never have been. But I decided to make a change this year, and he has really helped. I choose him because he seemed to really know his stuff, and he does. He is friendly, with no attitude, and really wants you to succeed. He is also very thorough. He is always checking up on how you are doing, and providing homework to do on the weekends. He also provided me with a diet that I found easy to follow and one that has also given me more energy, and stamina. If you are looking for a qualified, friendly and very thorough trainer, I can't recommend him enough.

Carlos is the secret, the real deal. At first I was hesitant about paying for a trainer. I thought I knew it all about exercise being fairly athletic. I also thought that only celebrities had personal trainers and paid dearly for them…until I met Carlos. I didn’t just get a fitness trainer I have an accessible counselor that guides me in exercise, nutrition, and everyday conditioning. When I travel he sends me exercise regimes for the hotel gym and constantly advises me on dieting and working out. As far as results: I’ve lost 52 lbs. and have great energy. Carlos is the real deal. If you don’t believe it, just ask me.

i have been training with Brenda for 9 months now and she is great! Before Brenda, I did have a very good trainer in another city but then I moved to NYC, so I knew what the standard was for someone who would push you but also understand your personal needs and tailor the workout to make sure you are satisfied. I used Thumbtack to find a trainer and read positive reviews about Brenda and decided to give it a try--she has lived up to all expectations. Her schedule is flexible so she can meet you when and where is best for you (some trainers' schedules are too packed and if you're 5 minutes late, they take 5 min off the end of your session, or do not let you reschedule a session without giving you a hard time). She tailors the workouts so if you want to do something on a particular day or are feeling a bit sore in one area, she will work around that but still make sure you are getting an intense workout. Brenda is friendly and personable to talk to and will advise you on anything from nutrition to specific workout regimens to improve a muscle group. It's important to find a trainer who you really get along with and feel comfortable around, and I have found it very easy to work with Brenda. I'm 100% satisfied--highly recommended!

Ratul is the best trainer I've ever had an the best bang for the buck! Unlike the other trainers that I've encountered, Ratul makes sure that I get the best workout in and is not a clock watcher. He is constantly checking in with me by texts and in his food tracking app to make sure I'm staying on plan. I wholeheartedly recommend him!

I started with Chris a few weeks ago. He has helped me get back into a gym schedule and I've definitely been feeling stronger already. He also gave me a couple home workouts to do on my own which is super helpful on the days I get stuck late at the office and can't get to the gym. Glad I made the commitment to finally start training!

Carmen was a fantastic trainer and gym mentor. I was the type of gym member that had my three machines that I stuck to because of convenience, not knowing what to use for my body, and I was simply intimidated. Carmen not only educated me on how to get fit and the machines to use but she built my confidence at the gym. I am very grateful for her giving me the right tools and that extra push. If you want a trainer that is more than just a coach ... she is your girl!

I have worked with many trainers and by far, Marvin is the most motivating. I have seen the best results from him. He not worked with me on exercise, but nutrition as well. I looked amazing in my wedding dress thanks to him. Thank you Marvin for everything!

I'm always on the go, and fitting in time to go to the gym is not always in the cards with my schedule. Being able to work with Erika and Mobile Fitness, in the comforts of my home, on MY time has been awesome! As a former athlete, when she arrived at my home with a couple small 30lb weights, I thought our workout would be a 'cake-walk'... I don't think I've sweat so hard in YEARS! I used to think that I could only get a solid workout in a gym, with HEAVY free weights and/or 'pumping iron', but in our sessions, she would (for lack of better words) kick my butt with lots of body weight focused workouts, resistance bands, and high intensity training! She even addressed multiple issues with my knee mobility (which I had lots of problems and issues with in the past, but no more!). I'm BEYOND pleased with the results I've gained through Mobile Fitness and can't wait to see what kind of results I'll reach in 2018!

I hired Lauren to help me fix my coordination, teach me how to properly workout while dealing with my back pain. I had several trainers prior, however, I never had the one who catered to me the way Lauren does. From teaching me how to use different muscles group of my body to completely improving my overall life by 2000%. She approached me as a person who needed help, as an individual and not just someone who could been fit under cookie-cutter method. She literally changed my life. From nutrition to stretching, to teaching me how to properly work out - she does it all. I am a vegan/vegetarian, so she continually teaches me how to improve my diet by providing solid advice. She turned me into a new person. My back pain is gone, and she did what no one could for several months. She is a miracle trainer! Thank you, Lauren!

I’d worked out plenty before meeting Cody but had not done so in some time when I met him. In a matter of months he helped me shed the extra pounds and drove me to achieve even more. My waist shrank a few inches as my muscles grew. From the beginning we worked out outside taking advantage of the local parks. I had always considered weightlifting to be a boring type of exercise but now looked forward to working out because it was completely different than holing up in the gym. Training sessions with Cody are intense from start to finish, well-planned, and personalized for my specific goals, abilities, and objectives. Cody is 100% present during training sessions, focused on me, his client. During the sessions, I feel challenged but confident, secure that he is guiding me with knowledge, experience, and attention to form. He takes the "personal" part of "personal training" just as seriously as the "training" part, and makes me feel like my goals are as important to him as they are to me.
