We hired Erika to conduct an interactive cooking class for our daughters 16th birthday. Erika was great with the girls and they all had an amazing time - all while learning to cook and about nutrition. Erika created a menu that was teenage friendly so the girls would really enjoy the food and experience.
Waking up at 6am is difficult and being energized is even more challenging. But Peter is able to keep me focused, engaged and enthusiastic with my 6am workouts and I leave feeling great and ready to tackle the day. He has listened to my workout goals and developed a personalized workout plan for me. I feel like I am working out more effectively than ever before and I can't wait to see the results (I am only a week in). I was impressed the first session when he said that it was a better use of his and my time if I did my cardio warm-up before he arrived so that I wasn't paying him to watch me run on a treadmill - I feel like that showed he respected that I was paying for training and he wanted to make sure I got my money's worth. Peter has also given me great advice about nutrition and workouts outside of my training sessions with him. I feel like he knows his stuff and will ensure I don't injure myself or strain anything while at the same time pushing myself beyond what I think I can do. I feel great and I'm very satisfied so far and would recommend him as a trainer to anyone.
Melissa's cooking event was incredibly informative! I learned so much about nutrition, detoxing, and food preparation. The juice and meals she prepared exceeded my expectations and were wildly delicious!
I was looking for a trainer who was knowledgeable in post surgical training. I had serious issues with my leg and had been through physical therapy and wanted to take the next step to working out again. I needed someone who could assess my limitations and provide a plan of proper exercises without causing pain or injury. Ian was the perfect choice. He motivated and encouraged me every step of the way. The unexpected bonus was his experience in nutrition and formed a plan which helped me finally lose the weight I had gained while recuperating from surgery . I would highly recommend Ian for whatever your goals in training may be. He will definitely help you reach them!
Rich is a very light-hearted, energetic, and passionate individual who is very knowledgable about fitness and nutrition. He is helping me to work towards my goals in a safe and effective way. I feel that Rich has a natural ability to make his clients feel comfortable, while encouraging inner motivation and strength. This results in greater gains both physically and mentally. I highly recommend Rich if you seek someone professional, knowledgeable, and of high value.
Toni is just right nutritional professional I am looking for. My meeting with her went well and she knew exactly what I need assistance with. I am glad that I choose her. She is very well experience in her field and that is what I was looking for. I looking forward to work with her and see the results.
I've trained with Karl in many small-group training sessions and can confidently say he's one of the best in the business!

Whether you're interested in building muscle or slimming down, Karl has a seemingly unlimited variety of exercises that will definitely yield results. With an expertise in fitness & nutrition, he will customize a program using a combination of weights, kettlebells, plyometrics & TRX training, and help you transform your body into what it should be!!
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.
Tom is very knowledgeable in fitness & nutrition. I am very happy to have found Tom on Thumbtack.I have lost 20 lbs. since I started working with Tom. The exercise program he has designed for me truly targets my trouble areas.
Excellent !!!!! I preferred this for my mom who has nutrition issues and barely eats . She’s picky . She loves the meals and it’s comforting to know she is eating 3 meals plus snacks . I would recommend this to everyone .
"I am a challenging client because I hate pushing myself! John makes our work outs fun. They would fly by before I could do too much complaining. What impressed me most is his knowledge of the human body and how it responds to specific workouts, nutrition, and supplements. He's more than a trainer who reminds you that its all a mind game, he becomes your coach. He tweaked my diet, he educated me about reaching my goals, and helped me learn how to maintain that goal. I would recommend him for anyone looking for real results." Cindy
Before working with Jim, I exercised occasionally, but never felt like I was getting anywhere. I mountain biked, played with the kids and ran with my dog, and generally considered myself in OK shape (albeit 15lbs heavier than I should be). My workout runs were typically 2-3 miles at top speed (around 7:30 pace, and my Heart Rate would max out around 180bpm). I didn’t enjoy these “all out” runs, and would usually dread going out for my next run. I’m the type of person who likes to succeed at whatever I’m doing, so I’d exercise in “bursts”. During a burst, I’d exercise frequently and would enjoy seeing my pace improve from 8:00/mile down to 7:17/mile (my personal best 2.5 miles). When I stopped seeing improvement (or got injured), exercise would drop down my priority list, I’d stop for a while and would pick it up again a few months later when I had time. In retrospect, my workout regime was unenjoyable and unsustainable. In March 2013 I weighed 187lbs and felt generally unhealthy and out of shape, so started running. I reached out to Jim and mentioned to him that I was running and he started asking questions. It quickly became clear to me that Jim knew a ton about how to train, and he offered to help coach me. On Jim’s advice, I started wearing a Garmin watch and HR monitor on my runs so he could track my workouts. After a few runs he evaluated my situation as: 1. I have a gifted heart rate (who knew?) so had good potential 2. I was running one type of workout (short+fast), and needed to: a. Slow down and get in more miles, and b. Do different types of workouts, each with its own specific purpose 3. Change my diet to get off my “sugar cycle” and shift and my metabolism to become efficient at burning fat Jim said if I followed his program that I would accomplish things I wouldn’t think possible. I figured I’d give it a try. It turns out that following Jim’s recommendations were easy to do. In fact, switching to longer, slower runs made the whole running experience dramatically more enjoyable. I actually looked forward to going out on runs because I was didn’t suffer the way I used to. Jim also gave me some interesting podcasts and books on the topics of health and fitness; I’d listen to them while running on the trail and get more informed and motivated. I found it very motivating to have Jim monitoring my exercise. I’d send him a report after every workout including the Garmin file; he’d analyze it and give specific recommendations on what workout to do next, diet, recovery, sleep, injury prevention, etc. During this period (April 2013-July 2013) I got the exercise bug. I talked to Jim or emailed every day and was really enjoying it, but I was still running much slower than I used to; I probably averaged 9-10 minute mile pace and hadn’t done anything near my 7:17/mile record. I couldn’t see the results, but Jim constantly analyzed the heart rate, pace, elevation profile of my runs and assured me that I was getting much fitter. It turned out that he was right. He was Mr. Miyagi and I was the Karate Kid. I did a sprint triathlon with some colleagues from work in Aug-2013. Despite never having ridden a road bike and being a weak swimmer, my fitness allowed me to finish 3rd in my age group, and (to my surprise) I ran the 5k at 7:02/mile pace after having swum 750 meters and biked 12 miles. After this, I started seeing some amazing improvements: • Aug 2013: Weight had dropped from 187lbs to 163lbs; resting heart rate had dropped from 70 to 48bpm • Oct 2013: Olympic triathlon: 28th of 204 people. Ran 10k at 6:58/mile (after 0.9 mile swim + 24 mile bike) • Feb 2014: Half marathon: 6:44/mile pace (finished top 5%) • Mar 2014: Sprint triathlon: won age group. 11th of 194 people. Ran 6:27/mile pace (after swim + bike) • April 2014: Olympic triathlon: Ran 6:48/mile pace (after 0.9 mile swim + 25 mile bike) • May 2014: Trail Half Marathon (>2,000’ of gain): 3rd overall out of 134 participants (1:44, 7:56 per mile pace) • July 2014: Half Ironman (“70.3”): 76th of 2535. I even beat 5 pros. Qualified for 70.3 world champs in my first 70.3 • Sep 2014: 70.3 World Championships: 902nd/2235. I raced well and enjoyed it (the competition was very fast) • Nov 2014: Ironman Arizona. 10 hours 46 minutes. 170th of ~3000 (top 6%) despite injury issues. • 2015 Season: 2 Ironmans, a 70.3, a sprint (won age group) and an Olympic (8th overall out of 608 athletes!) It has been really fun to improve this quickly. Jim’s transformation approach has made it enjoyable and sustainable. If I hadn’t worked with Jim, my March 2013 exercise burst would have ended a month later, I’d probably still weigh in the 180s, be doing bursts of exercise and my fitness goal would still be to break my 7:17/mile record. Instead, I’ve successfully and sustainably transformed my health and fitness. I set a goal in early 2014 to qualify for the 70.3 and Ironman world championships. A year ago, that goal would have seemed (1) unachievable and (2) completely insane. Now I’m half way there. I know it IS possible, and more importantly I’m enjoying the journey. I talk to Jim daily by email or on the phone. No matter how much faster/fitter I get, I find it immensely helpful to have Jim pore over the details of my workouts, provide feedback, prescribe new workouts, rest, sleep, injury advice, nutrition ideas, equipment, motivation and goal setting. My goals and exercise program will change, but my transformation is permanent. Jim’s approach made it possible.

Lauren was great! So easy to work with and she really helped me achieve my fitness goals.
Great personal strength and conditioning training! Many different exercises and fun workouts. Also helped me with my nutrition; helped with portion control Highly recommend to all people.
Michele's remarkable combination of expertise, empathy, flexibility and energy has made it possible for me to make progress in losing weight and improving my overall nutrition - goals I've had for decades but never really found the way to work on successfully. Highly recommended!
Best results, service quality, and sessions are actually fun! I've lost 22 lbs over 4 months and I feel great! Even helped with nutritional coaching and meal prep!
Dr. Dom’s nutrition and fitness coaching was just what I was looking for. As a busy professional he recommended the right program for my lifestyle.
I am still working with Barbara and I have been very pleased with her approach and her continuing commitment to my specific needs. I wanted someone who could meet with me, in person, and work in a "hands on" way to help me improve my nutrition and my eating habits. She has done this and, most importantly, she has been teaching me how to do this myself so that I will be able to continue this lifestyle change on my own. I would highly recommend her.
My evaluation of Val as a trainer is that she is OUTSTANDING. I have been with her for 10 years, and here is the reason why. Over 10 years ago, I found myself in the situation of having to become a caregiver (specifically for my Mom). For those who have never been a caregiver, I can tell you that it can take a lot out of you mentally and physically (depending on the situation). I have never been in the best of physical condition, but I had really neglected myself. I attained a weight of about perhaps 220 pounds, very poor cardiovascular status, high blood pressure, a type of pale to greyish skin complexion (not to mention a very scraggy beard). Indeed, if you saw me, you would want to put me out of my misery...this is NO exaggeration. My doctor, upon examination, gave me THE warning...either begin physical exercise, watch what I eat, or be placed in ICU. I joined NYSC, and was referred to Val. She did a physical evaluation on me, determined what type of training I needed, AND she asked me what did I wish to accomplish (which was to lose weight, tone down, improve cardiovascular condition, or, in other words....TO BE COMPLETELY RECYCLED). Indeed, with the precision, planning, and necessary (in my case) toughness of a drill sergeant, 10 years on, I have improved greatly. Indeed, I have more endurance, more flexibility, more muscular development which I could never achieve alone. I simply do not look my age. And I just plain feel better. The training that Val puts me through is quite thorough. There is always advice on nutrition (she has a degree in this), and an extensive knowledge of anatomy with which helps with some muscular problems that I endure from time to time. All in all, I firmly believe that having Val as my trainer saved my life, and I am hoping for another 10 years with her as my trainer. For those of you who read my testimony, I strongly urge you to sign up with an introductory training session with her. Val will listen to your concerns, and ask you what you want to accomplish in a training program. I am confident that you will not be disappointed. Salvatore Mauro December 13, 2016
With 30 minute workouts 2 times a week and dietary support from Michele. My clothes fit and I have more energy than before. All without having to spend hours on the bike or treadmill or without having to starve myself to lose weight. I didn’t think I could do it but Michele helps to keep me on track!
