"At the age 47 and a little out of shape, I needed to get in top physical shape for a police academy. (In New Jersey the age limit for police officers is 35, but there is no age limit for correction and sheriffs dept)...... so I new if I wanted this job in corrections, I had to be ready, and if anybody has been to any police academy, you know it's a para military atmosphere. Screaming at you from day one, not caring about your feelings. Their only concerns is that you will be physically and mentally strong in law enforcement environment. The first Day I walked in, I talked to Bob about my mental and physical weaknesses, and he told me not to worry, and to listen to everything he had to say moving forward. I literally felt at ease from that moment on. Now it wasn't always easy, Bob pushed my mental and physical abilities beyond I thought I could ever reach, and after 6 months of running, sprinting,spinning,rowing,pull-ups, push-ups, weight training, jump roap, etc., I found myself in the best physical and mental shape of my life. Bob is more than just a trainer, he is a trainer, a life coach, a friend, (and even an enemy, lol when he had to be). I am proud to say that on July 12, 2016 I graduated as a New Jersey Juvenile Justice Commission corrections officer, cycle 29 and have been working in the jail ever since, and I couldn't be happier about my new career in law enforcement, but most of all, I couldn't of been happier about the choice I made walking into Bob's studio, because I know I could have never done it on my own. Sometimes in life we need a little help to get to the next level, and that's why I made the investment in myself to get to the next level with Bob Pelsang!!!!! Sincerely, S.C.O. T. Venezio"

"Ok so today was my 1st class and I have to say wow. Mike was great. He was very profesional but has this down to earth feel about him. After sitting with him for about 5 minutes he knew exactly what I was looking for and focused the training on that. His skill as a trainer comes out immediately and you can see he genouly wants to help. I can see myself using Mike going forward as my personal trainer. Mike thanks for everything today and See you next week!"

"Hitting the gym was a real struggle for me. I'd get there with good intentions and then have no idea how to workout. My routine consisted of hitting the treadmill, picking up some weights and feeling intimidated by the gym rats I was surround by. I found myself hurting (not a good hurt) and feeling discouraged because I knew that what I was doing wasn’t creating progress. I needed someone to teach me how to workout. I had seen that a couple of peers were training with Bill and their results were significant. I figured what do I have to lose? I knew right away that Bill was exactly what I needed to kick start my journey to a healthier me. During our first meeting we discussed my medical history, goals, and things that he would need to pay special attention to/ make modifications for. I made him aware that I have back pain every so often, he took note of the pain and suggested things that could help alleviate it. One night he put special tape on my back that assists with keeping the spine straight. In order for him to apply it I had to take my shirt off, at first I was really self conscious because I’m standing next to a dude that jacked, while I’m a work in process. I would say Bill is the OG of the "judgement free zone." He is also an excellent teacher, he wants you to understand an exercise from point a to b. If you’re looking for results overnight that’s wishful thinking. It’s a process that takes time, but once you start seeing and feeling the results, you'll know it's because of all the hard work you put in and the motivation Bill provides. Before you know it you’ll start feeling and looking like your best self. Bill pricing is extremely fair for being in a metropolitan area. He is super flexible (literally and figuratively) if you need to reschedule. He is always willing to fit you in at a different time if your original session isn’t doable that week. He comes right to your home, no gym membership required! I would recommend Bill to anyone who is ready to put in the work to become a healthier individual. Not only do I have a trainer for life, I also have a friend for life. Thanks for having my back Bill :) Also I'm in his profile pic, so that's pretty snazzy!"

"I began Keep Moving Fitness with a major spinal injury sustained in the military. This injury had been limiting me substantially from staying actively fit for nearly two years after the incident; The techniques & workouts Peter Gesswein had introduced to me, along with being my personal trainer along the way has miraclulsly healed the pain and has Increased my strength, mobility, and stamina more than any physical therapist or personal trainer I've ever worked with. The professionalism, knowledge,experience, and guaranteed growth in fitness and personal health has guaranteed Keep Moving Fitness and Mr. Gesswein as the only business I'll ever work with in the fitness industry.

"I have been working out with Joe for three weeks now and I have honestly never seen such amazing results in a short period of time. They are very knowledgeable at trainer joes and form a work out and meal plan, meant for your body. Three weeks with joe's workouts and two weeks on his meal plan, I have lost 12 lbs, 1.5% body fat, and my lower back, which was always a problem for me, is getting stronger! I highly recommend Trainer Joes!! "

"Dwayne personalizes the work out to fit the client's ability and goal. He also is up to date with research on exercise which is something I appreciate when working with a personal trainer. Dwayne also respects my time, and does his best to reschedule if I am running late or need to add extra sessions. He really helped me reach my goal !!!"

"Jake is a very knowledgeable and responsive coach. When I came to Jake Porter I was dealing with the possibility of a herniated disc and the reality of a stalled fitness track. Jake has been able to give me specific technical advice and overall encouragement in order to help me develop and achieve personal goals. Interestingly, whenever I have told him about a relevant article that I have read, Jake is able to have a great conversation, interacting with the material while bringing additional information. My favorite miracle is how by teaching me correct form and essential support muscle groups, I have been able to lift smarter and stronger; thank you Jake. I really do think Jake Porter would be a great trainer for anyone."

"I met Frankie at my heaviest after having two kids. I was tired and needed to change for myself and my kids. I hired Frankie as a personal trainer and through his support, knowledge, flexible scheduling, eating habit instructions and motivation, I was able to meet and go beyond my goal weight. He pushed me and kept me motivated. I really LOVED that he was so supportive of me. Every time I think he has no more to show me, he continues to come up with new challenges for me to meet. I highly recommend him for personal training. My beginning weight was 246 lb. and now I am at 137 lb."
