TWO WORDS.. AWESOME TRAINER!! I've worked with personal trainers in the past. Jaisen hands down is the best experience I've ever had. He takes your goals seriously and really listens to your concerns, as well as articulates a goal oriented plan you can stick to. He's excellent at what he does, and I would enthusiastically suggest him to anyone!

I had my first personal training session today, and it was terrific. It was very challenging but extremely well tailored to my capabilities and goals. I've had several other personal trainers but this is the best session I've had, ever.

Working out with Jaisen is a completely different experience! I have tried personal trainers at the local gym, and my level of dissatisfaction was quite high. Jaisen is focused and knows how to motivate. Highly recommend.

Marcia is by far the best personal trainer I've ever had! She truly has many years of experience behind her, and you can tell right off the first work out. Training with Marcia is challenging, but never boring. Her wonderful personality shines through her work, making you feel comfortable and at ease. If you stick with her and follow her instructions, fast results are 100% guaranteed. Trust me, I know from personal experience!

My experience with Marcia has been excellent and exactly what I had been looking for in a personal trainer. Marcia is very knowledgable, professional, and always on time. In the time I have been spending with her I have lost weight, gained a better understanding of my nutrition needs, and muscle mass. Working with Marcia has been very rewarding.

Excellent trainer. He knows his stuff and knows how to make it fun. I highly recommended him to my nutritionist since she's always looking for a personal trainer to send her clients to. He knows how to make it interesting and is always looking for different ways to do things. He uses my equipment so I'll know how to use it when I do it on my own.

I needed a major lifestyle change and used thumbtack to help find a personal trainer. Working with Katia has been life changing. I am doing things I have not imagined my body doing. Katia is very sincere in helping to achieve my goals. I cannot wait to see how my body transforma. She is informative with nutrition and is a goddess in fitness. Making changes to yourself can be uncomfortable and scarey but Katia has made this transition for me very enjoyable. I look forward to our sessions because I know Katia is going to kick my behind where it has to go. I am very grateful.

Working with Katia was an a great experience. I haven't worked with a personal trainer in over a decade and even back then it was short-lived. Katia was knowledgeable, and amicable with a great disposition. She asks you all the right questions and takes the time to get to know you as a person and also allows you to get to know her. Most importantly she carefully measures your abilities as you first get started so she can really work out a plan that best suits you. That said, she works you hard but she works you smart. Highly recommend!

Kat was my personal trainer for over a year. She was tough, inspirational, knowledgeable, and extremely effective. She was also a pleasure to work with. Many days we would laugh our way through the workouts. She always had a positive outlook and quick to push me a little harder, even when, frankly, I just wanted the workout to be over. In the end, I appreciated her enthusiasm!!! I would whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone who wants to feel better, and look better!!

I have worked with several personal trainers in the past and I can honestly say that the experience I have had so far with Eddy is by far superior. With past trainers, I would get stuck doing the same routines over and over again, but Eddy is always introducing new exercises. His sessions are innovative and exciting, and he really knows how to push you to your limit. The best part is that the sessions are fun! Working out with Eddy is always something I look forward to! I have no doubt that he will help me achieve my goals quickly. Eddy is also extremely knowledgeable about nutrition and he takes the time to give advice on eating habits and supplements. To anyone who has a fitness goal, I highly recommend training with Eddy, you won't regret it!

Ive been working out on and off for 20 years, Ive tried every kind of work out and diet, and have run into a wall because trainers or myself have tried to do to much in too little time or not appropriately. Gary took the time to pace things out and make sure that Im ready physically and mentally to go to the next level and most importantly to make sure I'm successful with my goals. Not only is Gary a great guy but he is always paying attention to details making sure you do things right and get out that extra REP!. I have lost over 40lbs over last 5 months and have gained muscle and I feel great. I highly recommend Gary to anyone, who really is ready, to get in shape, feel good, and be healthy. Sincerely Mike M. PS He will even tell you if your shoes are not right or comment if they are not double knotted because you waste time if they come untied during a work-out. A True professional unlike those commercial trainers in the big box Gyms.

Three months ago, I contacted the local personal trainer community via Thumbtack with a loosely formed goal of achieving ... vanity. I am your usual customer wishing to "tone down". What I achieved in my three months with Mike is much more measurable. One exercise I was never able to achieve was running. While I had the interest, my endurance failed me. Since joining h.o.w., I can easily run over 2+ miles, which may not sound like much, but starting from zero to an easy 2 mile sprint is an achievement. I am now training toward a one leg squat. Try it, I dare you!

Mike is an excellent trainer. I came to him in a great deal of pain from a back issue and he patiently worked with me to get past that and increase my fitness while not worsening my pain. He has a deep understanding of fitness and physiology and an easy going nature that makes working with him a pleasure. I've had a variety of trainers over the years and feel Mike is at the highest level of quality.

I started with Bernadette back in February of this year. First off she took the time to assess me and my needs and discussed my goals at length. She then formulated a plan for me, her enthusiasm and willingness to never give up is infectious even when I'm not feeling it. Initially my thoughts were to lose weight to fit into a bathing suit for a vacation, but now that has changed to trying to live a better and healthier life. Bernadette is the best cheerleader even when I fell off for a couple months she stuck with me to get me back on track. Through the ups and downs she has stuck with me. I have had other personal trainers in the past and by far she is the best I've had. Thank you Bernadette for all that you do and look forward to continued success. I would highly recommend her.

Bernadette is an awesome personal trainer. She motivated me to get into the habit of exercising and and feeling good about myself. I really like the fact that she takes the time to give me exactly what is suited for ymy body and helps me improve and I can clearly see the effects after a few months. She usually stays with me overtime if our schedules allow it and makes sure the session ends properly. She seems to truly care about her clients and I feel she takes the time to prepare for each session in advance.

Excellent experience ! I was a bit nervous in general before meeting but Hideka made us feel comfortable immediately ! She was extremely knowledgeable about health and fitness which was impressive. She was willing to work around our busy schedule which was super convenient . Hideka was patient, organized, and had a really positive attitude ! My partner and I️ inquired on training together . Hideka found out our strengths and weaknesses and focused a work out plan based on that which made it feel more personal and unique. Hideka made working out fun and exciting which was really awesome ! She is very motivated and conscious and really good vibes; we got a lot done and left our first workout feeling really great and extremely productive ! We are super lucky to have found her /Looking forward to future work outs and we highly recommend her she is fantastic ! 5 Stars! :)

Debra Ann gives so much to her clients, she is a trainer, a weight loss EXPERT, (she knows more about nutrition than anyone I know and it's my interest also,) therapist and cheer leader. I can't speak highly enough about this gem. She works so hard for me and all her clients as she truly cares. That is a rare quality in any profession and this is not an easy one. She has kept my weight at the ideal level and my body is much stronger and fitter for just having known her. She is so MOTIVATIONAL it's unreal. There are few genuinely caring, enthusiastic and knowledgeable professionals in the field like Debra Ann.

It wasn't until I started working with a nutritionist that I started seeing the results I wanted. I have lost a total of 64 pounds ; from March 2016 up until now. It was a long difficult Journey that took a lot of will power, determination and consistency; but with the help of this wonderful nutritionist I was able to achieve my goals. She helped me figure out the calories I needed to consume along with listing certain foods I should and shouldn't eat. Taking that chance and going to see her was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

I had the pleasure of working with Cortney at Hudson Valley Peak Performance last week. She was very knowledgable and professional. I loved her whole person approach to health and wellness. She took the time to listen to my short and long term goals and discussed some recommendations to help me achieve those goals. Her focus on nutrition and self-care in additional to exercise was exactly what I was looking for and I appreciated the breadth of knowledge she offered. I had some muscle soreness from traveling and she walked me through some great stretches that gave immediate relief to the worst of the pain and my discomfort has improved immensely after following her advice for continued care. I wouldn't hesitate to visit her again and utilize her training on a recurring basis to help me meet my fitness and wellness goals.

Cortney is very professional and friendly! I was hesitant about signing up for a nutrionist, but I am glad I did. I look forward to working with her in the future. She signed me up to receive certain food to help me reach my goals and also offered to be my trainer. I was impressed by how dedicated she was to me. She stayed on the phone with me to make sure I understood everything and answered all of my questions while staying very positive and friendly.

Suzanne is fantastic! She puts together workouts that are very specific to my needs and changes it up each session. She is knowledgeable, safety conscious, very supportive, and incorporates a wide verity of methods to help me reach my goals. At first I was embarrassed because I new that I was very weak and very out of shape. She took the time to actually "listen" to my apprehensions and, I am now more confident that I can get fit again, with her help and encouragement. In the past, I made excuses to avoid exercising. Now that I am working with Suzanne, I already see results and have more energy which gives me the desire to continue to workout. She also focuses on your health and is sincere in all her efforts to help you reach your goals. I highly recommend Suzanne to ANYONE who needs a little push, and also wants the correct guidance so that they work out safely and at the pace that will give them results. In a nutshell, Suzanne is a GREAT personal trainer and a wonderful person to work with!

I had many trainers in the past, and no one has matched up to Patrick. After meeting Patrick for the first time, I came out with so much knowledge on nutrition and the basics of fitness. His style of training not only motivates you, and he focuses on how your body reacts and lets you be in control while getting results. The nutrition aspect helped me out tremendously. Before, I was going about it all wrong with my eating pattern, and now I have it down Correctly to a "T". Patrick has set up my own special healthy eating program for life and I feel great! I have lost 5 pounds, lost 3 inches in my waist and overall I have so much more energy! My body feels tighter and I no longer feel the jiggles. Not only will I continue with Patrick, but I will recommend him to anyone that needs a fully knowledgeable trainer that gives you results! Thanks Patrick!

I wanted to try something different after my fat loss stopped. I started the Patrick’s program and right away saw results because of the workouts and nutrition. I noticed right away my jeans fitting better and my face bloat went away. I lost 12 pounds, 2.5 inches of my waist in the first 21 days and was amazed. I was not sure at first if I could do it but with support of Patrick and his team I was able to surpass all my goals. Thanks Patrick!

Tim Johnson is an excellent trainer! I started training with him one month ago and have already lost 7 pounds and 4 inches. His exercises are made to target every part of the body with very noticeable results. Workout sessions are powerful, but without the physical torture one imagines is needed to achieve a fit/toned body. Not only is Tim an excellent personal trainer, but a very kind and respectful person. He is flexible with hours, which is great if you have a busy lifestyle, and is willing to come to you for sessions. If anyone is looking to see results with motivation and positivity, Total Non-Stop Training with Tim is the way to go. Thank you Tim!
