My name is Victoria Turkin and I have used personal trainers for about 20 years now. Since meeting Richie Smyth I can truly say that he is one of the best trainers I have ever had in my life. Following his diet plan I lost the way that I wanted and got into the best shape of my life since using him. Seeing that Richie has a physics background, he uses different techniques in his training. He hit your muscles differently than I've ever had any other trainer do with me before. So if you are looking for the top-of-the-line trainer Richie Smyth is the one to go to.

I've been training with Richie on and off for the last thirteen years. Ideally I'd love to train with him five days a week. Unfortunately, work and life in general make that difficult. When I first started with Richie he would have me demonstrate how I did a certain exercise, like a dumbbell curl. He would make adjustments as needed and I would almost always have to go to a lighter weight. He would emphasize form which worked hand in hand with exploiting the muscle. The day after working out with Richie I always had that "good sore" feeling in whatever body part we worked on. He also had me write down what I ate everyday. I was already pretty meticulous with what I ate. He gave me a meal plan and I followed it to a T. Five weeks into the meal plan Richie gave me he re-checked my body fat. It dropped from18% to just under 13%. When he saw the results he stood up and hugged me. I didn't know how to react at first especially since I only knew him for a few weeks. He then explained that he was psyched because I followed the meal plan. The measurements he took didn't lie. One of the biggest reasons that I really enjoy training with Richie is that he is creative and does a great job at "muscle confusion." The work he does in preparing for an individual's training session pay off over time. He is by far the most knowledgeable person I have ever met when it comes to weight/fitness training. On days I'm not training with Richie I hear his voice in my head pushing me. That's the positive effect he'll have on you! Don L.

I have been training with Richie for almost 2 years. He is fantastic! He is very knowledgeable and professional. I have noticed changes in my body. He always pushes me just enough to notice differences without hurting myself. Can't say enough good things about him.
