About

I engaged Brian as a personal trainer. I'm now in my 4th week working with Brian and I'm seeing excellent results. We worked on my specific goals at the start and Brian has done an excellent job of designing my program based on my starting condition as well as working towards my goals which included fitness, weight loss, and flexibility. Communications have been great.

Ben has been my personal trainer for over a year now and has definitely exceeded all of my expectations! I've worked with many different personal trainers and none of them could even come close to comparing to Ben. He is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about health and fitness. Ben is a trainer that actually practices what he preaches. He always makes my workouts fun but also challenging. He knows how to keep me accountable and motivated during my workouts and with my nutrition. I know he genuinely cares about my progress and has influenced me tremendously to never give up and keep working on my nutrition and fitness goals. I lost 100 lbs with Ben's guidance and support. Working with Ben has been one of the best decisions I've ever made and I'm so thankful for everything he has done to help me gain happiness and health!

After searching for a personal trainer that would make my weight loss and fitness goals seriously, I finally found the best! When I met with Christina, we discussed weight loss goals, eating habits, current exercise regimen and my long term goals, in addition to working out for 45 minutes. Extremely knowledgeable in all areas of fitness and diet no matter what your goal is, she will help you! One of the best things about training with her, you also get tips, tricks and diet help during your fitness journey! Christina makes you feel comfortable from the beginning, I was completely out of shape, overweight by roughly 50 lbs (she says 40 total) and embarrassed! . When I started with Christina, I had less than 2 months to lose almost 20 lbs to meet a weight goal to lower my health insurance, she pushed me at each session to accomplish this goal! Thanks to her I reached my goal, lowered my insurance and feel GREAT! I still have about 20lbs to lose and I know if I continue training with Christina I will reach that goal in no time! These last four months have been great with her, I know without a shadow of a doubt she has my best interest at heart! Thank you Chris from the bottom of my heart for all your support. I look forward to the day when I reach that fitness goal I am striving for. What a celebration that will be with you!!! **no pictures yet, journey is not complete**

I've been training with Jason for 2 years. I came to him having gained 10 lbs in my new job and I needed help badly. I have since lost the 10 lbs and a bit more, lost 10% body fat and added muscle. I am back to my natural body weight. I work out 3 days a week with Jason and add 2-3 days per week more of cardio. The great thing is that as I have gotten older and more prone to aches and pains, Jason has designed routines that get results but that don't injure me. The gym is small, quiet and comfortable. The attention is personal. I have highly recommended Rev Fitness and Therapy to several of my friends and co-workers and they love it too.

About

Mari is one of the best personal trainers I have ever had the privilege to work with. She is friendly, professional and incredibly knowledgeable. She takes the time to get to know the individual's fitness goals and tailors programs to fit each client. She helped me get in shape for my wedding and has been a very positive influence on me as I work out during my pregnancy. I feel comfortable talking to her about what I would like to accomplish and she is able to work with me as my needs change. I look forward to our sessions every week and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to take their workouts to the next level.

Personal trainer extraordinaire. Lynn offers the total body and mind experience with real results. My wife and I have worked with Lynn since March 2014. She and I sat down and set some realistic goals and I have achieved all the goals we set for the year. Lynn carefully customizes each session and delivers both a fun and challenging workout. I appreciate that Lynn keeps our workouts engaging with variety - we never know what to expect next - and are always eager for the next session. Above all, Lynn targets all her workouts with a focus on proper form to eliminate the risk of injury. What can we say - Lynn has helped us transform our lives with solid training, proper nutrition, and a positive mindset. Thanks for being our partner!

Over the years I have worked with different trainers whose knowledge, methods, and philosophies have varied greatly. Quite honestly, of all I have been most impressed with Alexis. Her background is impressive and her overall knowledge of health and fitness is extraordinary in its breadth and depth. She closely monitors posture and form. I am amazed at the progress I have made in form because of her insistence on proper technique. She is apologetic for her consistent monitoring however, I am certain she has helped me avoid serious injury as I am working well beyond what I ever have without one incident. In the past there were several exercises that inevitability would cause a tweaked back, arm, or leg and that has never happened with Alexis. I am certain it is because of her persistence that every move be performed with proper form. Alexis has also been very flexible with my ever changing schedule and work demands. Alexis is a training professional that I would recommend without hesitation.

Sherri is just fabulous to work with and has created customized workout routines to keep me motivated and progressing in between her visits. I am quickly seeing the results. Also love that she does each new routine with me and adjusts it based on my ability; plus she builds in timing flexibility so if I have less time one day, I can adjust the routine to meet my needs. I highly recommend her!

About

We train clients from athletes to seniors with a combination of resistance training, aerobics, flexibility, and our unique mental conditioning process! We have over thirty years of proven success! Vince Anello is a five-time world powerlifting champion. In 1998, he was inducted into the Strength Hall of Fame in York, Pennsylvania. - - - - - - - - - - - DR. JUDD WHERE ARE THEY NOW? as told to PL USA by Judson Biasiotto Ph.D. 'The legacy of heroes is the memory of a great name and the inheritance of a great example." - Benjamin Disraeli Have you ever wondered what happened to the superstars of yesteryears? Many of them I am sure are etched in your mind forever. Lifters, who, by way of their greatness, literally transformed power lifting from a backyard event into a forceful and thriving international sport. I am also sure there are other lifters, despite their greatness, who have escaped the recesses of your mind for some reason or another. Over the next few months, I am going to profile some of our sports most celebrated lifters drawing upon interviews, research, and articles from Power lifting USA in order to determine where they are now. In short, we are going to take a trip down memory lane in order to call to mind what some of these lifters accomplished during their career and to find out what they're up to now. Vince "Vin Dog" Anello In the seventies, along with Larry Pacifico and Fred Hatfield, Vince Anello was as celebrated a worldwide figure as United States power lifting has ever known. In power lifting circles, he was considered a god, a multiple world record holder and a national and world champion many times over. Without question Anello is considered one of the greatest power lifters to ever walk onto a lifting platform. He is literally a power lifting icon. He is also considered by most lifting experts as the greatest dead lifter of all-time, bar none. When elite superheavyweights were struggling to break the 700 pound barrier in the dead lift, Vince was consistently exceeding the 800 pound barrier weighing less than 200 pounds. In competition it was not uncommon for Vince to out dead lift his nearest competitors by as much as 200 pounds. He was literally a dead lifting machine. His coach, Vince Lubawicki, once told me that when Vince was training for the 1976 Worlds he actually pulled a mind boggling 880 pounds. "Vince was scheduled to pull 750, 800 and then 820," Lubawicki explained. "He pulled the first two lifts with relative ease, but the 820 went extremely hard, literally spine bending, which really surprised all of us-including Vince. When we checked the weight, we discovered that we had misloaded the bar. We had 880 pounds on the bar, not 820 pounds. During my entire power lifting career, that was the greatest lift I ever witnessed." Making near impossible lifts was rather commonplace for Vince Anello. In fact, his phenomenal career has been one long highlight film: 20 world records, and countless national and international championships. His best lifts at 198 pounds, equipment unaided, are a 750 pound squat, a 500 pound bench press, an 821 pound dead lift and a total of 1980 pounds. Not surprising, Vince was inducted into the Strength Hall of Fame at York, Pennsylvania in 1998. Vince's allegiance and commitment to the sport of power lifting are rather obvious when you talk to him. Certainly his views on the current state of power lifting are rather unique and refreshing. "I love power lifting and I always will," Vince says. "I contend that we are all brothers and sisters in a great sport, regardless of all the federations. I have competed in a number of different federations, and I have found wonderful people in every one of those federations. Still, I just wish power lifting would consolidate all of these governing bodies so that we would all be together again. I think it would make the sport more credible. Our world championships would then decide who are the strongest women and men in the world, and our records would reflect a more valid measure. As it is today, with all the federations, it is hard to determine who the best lifters are." Amazingly, Vince competed well into the nineties even though he had a badly damaged hip. In 1998, he was forced to retire because of his hip. Shortly there after, he married Sue Hoch, the absolute love of his life. In 2003, due to extreme pain, he had a complete hip replacement. Sue was instrumental in nursing him back to health. Together they founded Anello Body Fitness (please see the link on website section in this profile page), a fitness personal training gym in Strongsville, Ohio. The institute is designed to train athletes both mentally and physically. "I have always felt that athletic performance is multi-dimensional," said Vince. "An athlete is not just a physical being. He also has a psychological and social side. Consequently, for an athlete to reach his optimum level of performance, he has to concern himself with all three systems. He has to put all the systems together to form an integrated whole. That is what we try to do at our personal training gym, and we have been extremely successful with this approach, not only with the athletes we train, but with everyday folk who are trying to lose weight and get into shape. I am really proud of what we have accomplished at the fitness center," continued Vince. "Honestly, helping others to reach their goals has given me as much satisfaction as any world title I ever had." Sue and Vince are also very active in the Greyhound rescue program. They have their two dogs with them, Ajax and Firefly, around the clock. "I love animals. No matter where we go we take Ajax and Firefly with us-we are family," Vince admitted. "Our clients at the gym absolutely love them. In March, Betsy, our first dog, passed away. It literally broke Sue's and my heart. I miss her terribly. " There is no doubt that Vince is a power lifting icon-one of the greatest power lifters of all-time. More importantly, though, he is a wonderful human being. He has outstanding character. He is extremely devoted, honest, humble and kindhearted qualities which are indeed rare in today's society. Numerous times during his career, he has gone out of his way to help others. In fact, he has a propensity for putting others ahead of himself. In this respect, he is a very special human being. Perhaps, the most important and most revealing facet of Vince's life is the fact that he is a man of compassion and love. He is constantly reaching out and helping others with his time, his money, his knowledge and energy. His philosophy is, basically, people first and things second. Everyone who knows him loves and respects him. In short, Vince Anello is not only a world-class athlete, but he is also a world-class person.

I offer specialized personal training for people interested in all types of fitness training. Fitness doesn't "fit' everyone the same way, and it's not a one-size-fits-all system.

My job is to educate you so you know as much as the fitness professionals and help guide and motivate you to reach your goals, and push you to be the best that you can be. I don't follow the trends; I follow what's most effective and attractive to you. Your goals are my goals, and I will care about helping you reach them. Everyone deserves fun, fast, effective, and affordable fitness, not just Hollywood celebrities. Let me pamper and push you. You will not be dissappointed!

Lose weight without a diet. This is not a get-slim-quick scheme. I am a personal fitness and nutrition expert with years of experience in helping people of all shapes to permanently lose the weight and get healthy for good. I have lots of references. I do not sell any diet pills, programs, etc., so, I am not here to sell you dreams of magic potions that do not exist. I just teach everything I know about fitness and nutrition and guide you every step of the way, and the rest is up to you. I live in NE Ohio and my clients are in the greater Cleveland, Akron areas. I'll come to your home or health club, and we will work outdoors as well if you wish. After working with me, many, many of my clients have told me that fitness has become an addiction for them, a healthy addiction of course. Nonetheless, they have said that now they need it, and crave it. This could happen to you, I promise. I have a way of making you love your life and love yourself. Body and mind, health and fitness will become your way of life. You will even have the power to influence your family and friends in a positive way. I will help you transform your body, your image, and even your mind. Your Life. I have had clients with depression who say they no longer need to take medication and are free from all anxiety. You will never regret it, and you will never look back. I have a money-back guarantee! If you are not completely satisfied with your results after working with me, I will reimburse your cost in full! I use some very nontraditional techniques to get the results my clients are looking for. I promise you, you will never be disappointed. Helping others is a strong passion for me. Not only will I help you to stay fit and motivated, but I will also guide you through the plethora of food choices that we are all faced with today. I will make it easy and fun for you to not only be healthy but to stay ahead of the game when it comes to so many diseases that are preventable simply through wise food choices and whole living. I look for clients who are willing to work with me two times per week. Plus, you will receive many additional free benefits throughout the week including weekend group activities. I am looking for someone who is extremely serious about changing their lifestyle and bad habits. Someone who will stay dedicated to the program for the long haul. This is only for people who are willing to make a commitment for 1, 2 or 3 months and then for a lifetime on their own. Consultation cost is free. I will be interviewing you as you will be interviewing me. We will need to like each other because once you enter into an agreement with me, we will be communicating daily! I am extremely easy and fun to get along with, by the way. Please write to me, or call me. My name is Ingrid. Go to my website for more info. In your request, please tell me about yourself: your age, fitness level now and in the past, health issues, lifestyle, eating habits, a little about your family and your work. Just give me your first name and phone number. There is no need for any personal information. The most important question: Why are you looking for a personal trainer? Once I review your information, I will contact you either by phone or email within 24 hours.
