Richard has been my trainer for 2.5 years. I've never had a trainer before. Now I can't imagine working with anyone else. First of all he's just a really mellow, genuine, caring person. He never gets distracted while training me and focuses on everything I'm doing. He's very comfortable training both men and women of any age group. And he treats me like an equal. He's never condescending when I question something. He's tough when he wants you to just push that next lift and I had to learn to trust him. But he's also understanding if you don't feel well. Pretty quickly he learns his clients strengths and weaknesses. With me it was always trying to conserve energy so I could do more rep.'s He realized thats how I was thinking! And then spent many sessions teaching me to change that habit. He's got a sixth sense for all this. Just by watching you he can figure out how you're thinking while you train. Initially I was expecting him to look at me and think "older woman, I won't push too much". I had seen that mentality with other trainers at the same gym. Which would have been insulting. I was SO wrong! He trained me as if I was getting ready for my sport. I was already in good cardio shape but wanted to build muscle and get stronger. With Richard I could not believe how I was lifting 6 months along. I would never have believed I could become as strong as I am. He taught me so many techniques to mentally open up to lifting to my full potential. And he taught me good lifting technique so I have not had one injury in all this time. He also changes the work-out the second he feels you've gotten comfortable with it. Which I hate but is necessary! He's passionate about his career and you can tell he feels great when he sees that you're improving. He's also very knowledgeable about the role nutrition plays and stressed how important it was to allow some weight gain, steering me away from obsessing about the scale. I am really proud of my accomplishments. I work out in a gym that can be very intimidating when you wander near the free weights. All young guys full of machismo. But with Richard's training I walk in there alone now and I know what I'm doing. His training has greatly improved my confidence. It's affected my whole life, not just my work out : )

Bruce is my private fitness trainer. I first came to him after having a hip replacement in 2014. In 3 months, I was able to regain my endurance, core strength, balance and flexibility. Bruce is an outstanding trainer with great background, experience and personality. I am very grateful to him and recommend him without reservation. I can say that honestly not only as one of his clients, but also as a former trainer, professional dancer and yoga teacher. Feeling so good now I'm ready to get back on my mountain bike!

Really all I can say is that I have know Jamal "Dash" and have been working fwith him for 2 years now. Honestly he is the best basketball trainer that I ever had. He took my game from good to excellent. Before I went to him I dreaded drbbling the ball, but knew that I had to convert to a point guard to play for the upcoming year at D1 SUNY Albany. Dash instilled both confidence and skill in me.I have trained with alot of coaches but his skillset supecedes any trainer that I have worked with. He has a plethora of self taught drills. His specialty is ball handling. He prides himself in speed, and efficency. Alot of trainers are not hands on. Every drill he teaches, he can do himself, and is fully engaged in every workout. The work does not just stop when the session is over, he watches film from workout and tracks your improvement, then changes workout accordingly. Most importantly Dash loves this game for than any trainer I know, and is always aiming to take himself to the next level. He preaches that there is always another level. I absolutley love Dashletics, and will reccomend him to anyone who is looking to take their game to a different level. I am vested for life.

I've recently started working with the Train Harder Team and they are awesome! I've attended group training and I also have one on one personal training with Brian and I'm extremely impressed with their knowledge and how attentive they are. They're extremely easy to do business with, they care about their clients and go above and beyond to work with you and help you achieve your goals. They ask questions and listen to your needs in order to design the best package for you. The team has 5 personal trainers which includes a yoga instructor, they also offer Zumba, team training and nutritionist services. They are extremely professional and caring, they accept all forms of payment and as I said before they will work with you. Please check them out, you will not be disappointed!

My son has trained with Tony for the past two years and his development, both physically and mentally, has been tremendous. Tony is a motivational leader that takes his role as a mentor very seriously. Tony's credibility as a former athlete that competed at a very high level as well as well as his knowledge and professionalism make him the best trainer we have ever encountered.

      My son did not make his basketball team and was very disappointed. I started to seek for a trainer and came across Shadow Elite Academy! His session was so much fun! My son absolutely loved going every week, and has improved drastically!! I'm confident he will make the team next year!! Also, he gave him an awesome shirt to wear to his sessions. My son wears it proudly!

He worked with me for a year and it allowed me to advance my game to high school standards and beyond. He can help you to boost your dribbling, shooting, passing, and all around game.
