Latest Review: A forty-eight year old man who first came to John Drumm about six months ago. Due to a serious but unrelated medical condition, my workout program has come to a hault. But when the doc gives me the green light, I will definitely return working with John. John Drumm gets a five star rating from me for several reasons. His calm demeanor helped me to relax and feel comfortable starting to workout after a lapse of two decades. I had been very athletic and no stranger to bench presses and dumbbells through my first thirty years of life. His way of communicating helped me to accept necessary truths without getting discouraged. Fact is I had been sedentary for years and certain joints were pretty worn out. Even though I'm a typical ex-wieghtlifter who wanted to jump back into it, he helped me to see that I couldn't just pick up where I left off. He never tried discrediting my experience in fact he is a great listener. It's that I was able to build upon prior knowledge easily. This brings me to the main point; John Drumm is a gifted teacher and without being that, his vast knowledge of the human body and the workout equipment would not have become part of me. Despite being unfit and older I remained justifiably optimistic that I could get the results that I wanted. (And I have!) I just needed a guide in the background. And with him, I started to get the results that I wanted going about it the right way! He was also able to explain why certain more modern machines had advantages on getting the results more efficiently and safely. All the while respecting my inclinations toward free weights and recognizing how useful they can be, and using them! . Again it was my program not his and unlike many trainers he made sure he didn't get in the way.
