I have been working with Matt for 3 months now and I couldn't be happier with the experience. I had already lost about 55 pounds but wanted to learn more about strength training. Well, I got that and more! He is always well prepared for our sessions and continues to challenge me in new ways. In this short time I have gained muscle and strength that I didn't know was possible. Matt's personality makes the workouts fun so that I actually look foward to sweating! His price is very reasonable especially considering that he comes to you. I have lost another 15 lbs. and am looking forward to more great sessions with him.

I started training with Michelle in a bid to lose some of the stubborn fat around my middle section and generally tone up. What I achieved with Michelle’s help was far more than this! Using kettlebells and various bodyweight exercises, my overall strength and fitness improved so much in a short period of time that I was able to perform exercises I would never have attempted on my own.

My experience with Blue Collar Grind has been very valuable. Orlando has been very professional and extremely motivational during this journey I am embarking on. He is dedicated to helping me see success through the goals I have set for myself. His time management has been great as well with scheduling. Also I feel that I am getting a high quality one on training at a very reasonable price per session. Whenever I reach out to him for guidance I feel he is there for me with accurate information or tips that are suited for my situation.

I was informed by my MD - Strength Training would be a good idea. Joe has been most successful with all aspects of training. He takes a personal interest in the particular areas that need work to gain strength and progress to the next level of training. Each time we meet he asks how you are feeling and waits for the feedback before we proceed. Joe is extremely knowledgeable in the area of training and it is obvious he is quite dedicated to his specialty.

Even though I had previous experience working out on my own, Ethan has helped me to branch out, try new training styles, and push myself in new ways! His passion for helping others (not just through fitness), is obvious to anyone he works with. I highly reccomend his training services to anyone looking to get excited about adding fitness into their lifestyle. You won't regret it!

Tyson is an excellent trainer – he takes the time to understand your fitness goals and tailors every training session to uniquely fit your needs and abilities. By varying the workouts, and taking the time to get to know his clients and what motivates them, he actually makes it fun and the time flies by! It’s clear to see why so many of his clients have successfully reached their fitness goals – I highly recommend working with him!

Tifiro Cook is an excellent trainer for all body types and age groups. I started training with Tifiro in July 2014. He was very open to my fitness and nutritional goals. Being a fitness instructor I've seen how some trainers can be intimidating towards their client. You will not get that with Tifiro, he makes you feel like you have a true coach in your ear every step of the way. His training sessions are fresh and exciting. You will never get bored or run into a routine with him. Tifiro will push to improve mental focus to further achieve fitness milestones. Tifiro will mold your training sessions to your fitness level and physical abilities. As someone who has a chronic joint disorder he has assisted in keeping my knee healthy and strengthening up my quads to help support my knee. I have seen tremendous changes in my body that have people asking what I'm doing! When partnering healthy and clean nutrition with Tifiro Cook's training I know I can't lose. In addition Tifiro trains my son who has healthy fitness aspirations and to prepare him for sports when he is ready. My son looks forward to his sessions with T! I recommend all women, men, and children to check him out.

I met Adam a few months back in the gym. From the jump he has been a very genuine person. He had seen me come and go from the gym and struggle with workouts. Always there to offer support and advice......I thought wait this guy isn't training me? He wasn't he was just offering to help. Something that most private trainers don't do. I watched him help clients at the gym and one thing has been the norm. He's not only coaching them but he's changing lives. I visit the gym on a more than regular basis and I see everyone of his clients working out without him. He's making an impact!!

Gentry has been training me since August 2016. She is the most positive, upbeat, motivating person I have ever met and I have truly forgotten the feeling of dreading going to the gym, and reversely look forward to every day I train with her; in fact, more often than not it is the highlight of my day. I started going to her to add upper body strength to my noodle arms and also to get a Kardashian booty, because what girl doesn't want that. I was pleasantly surprised at how working out with Gentry 3-4 times a week produced real results so quickly! Gentry's workouts are unique and challenging every week and the sessions fly by. My self esteem, mood and general health has skyrocketed since coming to her. I love telling family and friends about her because training with her is truly one of the best investments I have ever made! :)

I have worked with a lot of personal trainers in the past and Victory personal training is hands down the best! Not only are you using the latest equipment, you're working with Kathie who has years of experience. She has helped me gain strength, lose weight and overall enjoy the process of challenging myself each workout. I would and have suggested Victory Personal training to all of my friends!

I absolutely love this gym! As a student at OSU for 8 years, I always had free access to all the gyms on campus, but I was never motivated enough to go on my own. Once I signed up for Nate's classes, I started working out 4-5x/week continuously and kept it up for a year until I had to move. To date, this is the only exercise routine I have kept up consistently and I loved the results I started seeing right away. Each class is wholly different from the one the day before and Nate keeps it fun with partner work, running outside, and always the best music. What I love most about Jackhammer is how Nate is willing to go out of his way for his clients. For example, I was supporting myself completely on student loans, and he was willing to negotiate the price for me so that I could continue to work out. He obviously cares about each of his clients and is extremely passionate about training them. He really takes the time to understand each individual's training level, and tailors each workout so that everyone feels successful at the end of the hour. I would recommend Jackhammer Strength Training to everyone trying to find a gym that will go the extra mile to get you healthy!

If you have ever thought about learning to box and becoming the best fighter you can be, then there is no better time than now to make that commitment at Columbus, Ohio's #1 boxing gym. Our focus at Old School Fight Sports & Fitness Academy is to bring back the emphasis on the "old school" skills of boxing training – the same style used by all of the greats but rarely taught today. You'll learn blistering punching combos, elusive defense (rolling, slipping, weaving, parrying), graceful foot work while using angles and precision punching with amazing accuracy and timing. You'll learn these forgotten skills and more. By combining these traditional skills with new 21st century strength and conditioning sports science, we can and will create the best-skilled, best-conditioned fighter that you can be. Boxing striking for MMA is also taught. Attention MMA fighters, we now have a cage to train in.

We want you to be the best you can be. We take our time teaching you skills that are brushed over nowadays. We don't move on until you display correctly what we are teaching. The results will be that you will look night and day better than the other students around town and I guarantee that. Women, learn self-defense and empower yourselves. Don't care to fight? No problem. Our workout alone will get you in the best shape of your life. Experience why so many people burn fat fast and easy with boxing training workouts. Of course, there is no contact to getting you as lean as you have ever been.

We have a convenient location, minutes from OSU Campus, downtown, and Grandview. Come in and try out a class for free. We are now offering morning classes. We also offer an awesome student discount.
