I've been working with Dewayne for 5 consecutive years. When I first began training with Dewayne I was at my highest weight, 250 pounds. Previous to working with Dewayne, I trained with 3 different personal trainers. I did not obtain the results that I desired working with those trainers. However, as of today, I am delighted to say that because of Dewayne effective training skills my weight is down to 152 pounds. I am no longer taking Insulin for my diabetes. In 2012, for the first time my cholesterol was below 200. I am very pleased with my results and I HIGHLY recommend Dewayne Barrett

We're in a month into our training program with Greg and its going great. He's excellent - our workouts are a nice balance of hard physical work and fun cardio with boxing. We do a lot of laughing as Greg makes jokes and keeps our spirits up as we push ourselves with the weight training. Getting our training schedule set up was very easy and Greg's facility is very easy to get to and very clean and well maintained. Overall Greg is just top notch!

During the third year I was training with Rhonda, I underwent a joint resection in my shoulder. As an adjunct to the physical therapy I needed, I continued to work with Rhonda, albeit on a slightly modified schedule. During that time, she helped me stay on track with the cardio and other strength training we had been focusing on, while still protecting the shoulder while I regained my full pre-surgery range of motion. Another client of hers and I nicknamed her the "the serial abs killer" while we were comparing notes after our respective training sessions. Rhonda is a very caring professional who always encourages her clients to be the best they can be. She possesses a wonderful skill of identifying weaknesses and then finding multiple ways (some even fun) of addressing and overcoming them.

I love working with Charles. He has always been motivating and apparently driven by a love for health and fitness. Willing to go beyond obligations and willing to help with excercises and additional aid even if not during a training sessions. I know i can reach out to him any time and even get messages from him to see how ive been. Sometimes if even to help keep me accountable.

I have enjoyed training in Krav Maga and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for 4 yrs now and Serge is one of those instructors I have a lot to thank for that. I have taken his classes as well as his one on one personal training sessions to work on advancing my skills in Jiu-Jitsu and Krav Maga. Serge is super skilled at addressing our needs and gearing our training to what most benefits our improvement. He is also very accommodating to schedule when training sessions are desired. Serge has a great rapport with his students and proves his skills by all the years of training in various martial arts. You won't be disappointed training with Serge. I guarantee it!

Katie is amazing! Not only did she make our sessions fun and interesting, she helped me organize my fitness plan for the days I didn’t see her, provided nutrition advice along with recipe ideas, didn’t mind holding my crying baby during the workout, and constantly upgraded our workout by finding new exercises for me. She tracked my body fat % and BMI which went down dramatically after this summer with her! I’m happy to continue losing weight with her sessions and now we are working on strength training. She is also very sweet, easy to talk to, punctual, and emphatic to my needs. Well worth the money!

I started training with Maryellen in my home about 9 months ago.I enjoyed training with her so much , that eventually my daughter joined me as well. If you are serious about working out,Maryellen is the perfect person for the job! She is always on time, very thorough and pays attention to every detail of my workout. She knows when and how hard to push me- always striving to get me to the next level. I highly recommend Maryellen to anyone who wants to get in shape and feel good about themselves. - I am glad i found her!

I recently started training with Carlos and he’s exceeded all my expectations. I’ve been training for over 20 years and am in pretty good shape, but wanted to get my body to the next level. Since I never worked with a trainer before, I was not sure what to expect. Carlos is truly amazing and I mean it! He has a terrific demeanor, exceptional motivator, inspiring and has innovative approaches to driving results. In a short period of time, he has taught me creative methods to shocking my body. Additionally, he provides guidelines for clean eating along with a training regimen you can do when you’re not with him, to keep the momentum going. I really believe what sets him apart from other trainers is that he genuinely cares…During one of my workouts, I arrived on an empty stomach and immediately, he brought me a protein shake to ensure I was properly fueled up for a hardcore workout!! He won’t EVER let you give up and does an excellent job at picking you up, when you are down. I would LOVE to train with him Forever & Ever, because, YES, he’s that GOOD! Everyone needs a ‘Carlos’ in their life. -Cherline Beveridge

I had two separate 25 training session packages with Trainer Chris Langsdorf and I loved every bit of it. Saw legitimate results right away and always pushed me to take my work outs further and kept me motivated through each session. I also learned a bunch of new exercises I didn't know and wouldn't normally have done. To top it off, in between sets, we laughed, traded jokes, talked life - I got not only a trainer, but a friend out of it too.

When I first met Erika, I had just set out to attempt my first ever sprint triathlon. Up to that point, I had been exercising on my own and lost over 100 lbs. I still needed lots of training and only 8 weeks until the race. What Erika then did for me was above and beyond what I could have done on my own. We began training; building powerful muscles and developing balance and stability. She even helped with nutrition planning and recovery tips. I completed my first sprint triathlon but felt my result was lackluster. For a first timer, this was normal. The next day I quickly signed up for another sprint triathlon for that summer. Once we began training for that, Erika amazed me yet again. The training sessions became much more intense. She provided solid motivation to keep up my mental strength. We built lots of explosive muscle and incredible cardio stamina. I finished the 2nd triathlon in the top 50% overall. It felt amazing. The training also translated well in my other hobby, soccer. The results were very real.

I couldn't have had a better experience training with Herbie. He is diligent, professional, and offers great value for his services. He pushes me during each session, changes it up so I am not repeating the same exercises each week, and works with me to understand what I am pleased with vs what I want to continue to improve. Within 6 weeks I started seeing noticeable results in my overall physique despite only training with him once/week. I have worked with several trainers in the past but Herbie has by far been the most qualified and continues to exceed my expectations. Highly recommend him!

It has been a great experience, hiring Olivier as my personal trainer. was the best treat I gave to myself. Aside from just training me, he provided me with a nutrition plan, which was a bonus for me, and helped my process. I would definitely continue working with him.

I had the pleasure of working with Tiare. When it comes to someone to help you get fit he is the right guy to go to. Before he even gives you any feedback about what is it that you need to do, he makes you fill out a form about your goals and what is it that you want to work on. I believe that’s a good way to get to know someone and he was able to see where my mind is as far as what i want and where i am at with my fitness life.Once he read my paper work which i known he did because he gave me great feedback which proves he takes time to get to know you before getting to know (if that makes sense). He is definitely a pusher once he sees that you are really insterested and very consistent. He follows up with you to see if you are doing your part and motivates you. He definitely does this because he loves it and wants to help people not just about the money. I will definitely recommend training with Tiare if you want to change your health and gym life.

Carl Replied immediately to my request for a trainer on Thumbtack. Within minutes we were communicating about his background and experience. He asked me what I was looking to get out of one on one training. 10 minutes later, an appointment was scheduled for several days later and we have been training together ever since.

Valerie Graham is the best thing that happened in my life. I have been training with her for 3 years. Her training style is incredible. She has a great passion for fitness and is superb at what she does. A trainer who listens and makes you feel you are heard and handles you with great empathy and compassion. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, flexible and effective and also very kind and just a joy to be around! Every time I workout with her, it feels like its the first time all over again, that is the kind of dedication she offers. She plays several roles - a great motivator , a counselor , a friend, a confidant, a goal setter and the list can go on. But who ever has the opportunity to have her in their lives for sure will be blessed with good health and fitness. She's one of a kind ! Go get her people ..that would be the best decision of you life , trust me !!!
