Dustin has been amazing targeting the areas I needed work on and keeping me motivated. So far my experience has been exactly what I was hoping for in a personal trainer.Aug 6, 2019Verified
I started training with Dustin about a month ago! It's been an amazing experience for me!! Dustin is great trainer - he knows what he is doing - his workout sessions are fun and extremely effective as long as you follow his plan! This was my first time using a personal trainer- so I'm very happy that I chose Dustin. If you are looking for something to better yourself and your health Dustin is the way to go!! ???Mar 20, 2016Verified
I started with Dustin in early January 2020 with the starting weight of 195 lbs and body fat of 27.2% (per my scale). Oh boy! The first few sessions were really tough and at one point, I was questioning whether I should give it up. However, Dustin is always there motivating and checking on me with responsible eating and exercising. He provided basic guidance on my diet as well as supplements to support my weight loss journey. With 8 sessions, I was able to drop the weight to 182 lbs and body fat at 17.8%. I am excited where this journey will take me to, and I certainly recommend him if you are looking for a personal trainer. Thank you Dustin for so patient with me.Mar 2, 2020Verified
I have enjoyed working with Dustin so far this year. When I researched personal trainers on Thumbtack, I received quotes from a few trainers. Dustin was the only trainer to actively follow up after sending his initial quote. While continuing my research, I discovered all the positive Thumbtack reviews he’s gotten, and I also found his public Facebook (RichterFit – Body Optimization by Dustin Richter) and Instagram pages, which contained helpful posts and videos about exercise and nutrition. It’s Dustin’s dedication, evident in the reviews and posts, that made me choose him as my personal trainer – and I don’t regret that decision. If you commit to the exercise regimen and meal plan, you’ll see results. I lost 13 pounds in about three weeks. Dustin changes up the exercises to prevent boredom, and his sense of humor adds levity to the sessions. I never thought I’d actually *enjoy* exercise, but I do, even on the days when I don’t see him. If you’ve ever considered making positive changes in your life, give Dustin a call.May 19, 2017Verified
I was looking for a personal trainer and found thumbtack and thought I would give it a shot. I put in my info and started getting emails, I was not sure who to choose but that's when Dustin Richter reached out to me thru the app, that automatically spoke volumes to me. He seemed to care about finding out what my journey was and he seemed to want to help me get there.. . He also offered me two free sessions to see if I liked him and the training he had to offer.. I really liked the sessions and he was point blank if you want to be successful follow the meal plan I give you and you have to do the work.. It has been a month and a half and I have lost 18 pounds! I could not be happier with Dustin, his training, and always being available to answer any questions I have had to help Me along.. I would highly recommend giving Dustin a try, he rocks!Nov 4, 2015Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I do everything within my power to develop the most effective training plan possible for achieving your health and fitness goals while still staying within your budget. Just because I have a great deal of experience and have been fortunate enough to experience an awesome amount of successful with my clients doesn’t mean I charge exorbitant fees for my services.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First we should correspond via message or verbally over the phone in order to discuss your precise goals, current fitness levels, injuries, past experiences with exercise and nutrition, and any other questions or concerns you may have. From there we can schedule a complimentary workout/fitness assessment so that you can try out a workout for yourself and assess my abilities. Then from there, we work together to formulate the training plan that will best allow you to accomplish your goals, while still respecting your budget and time availabilities.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine, International Sports Sciences Association, International Fitness Professionals Association, Apex Group, and DotFit over my 16 year career. I also attended the University of Nevada Las Vegas for 4 years and am pursuing my degree in Exercise Physiology with an emphasis in nutrition, to elevate my credentials and knowledge base to the highest level I can.
