"8 months ago I was a self-professed "lazy person". I am a 34 year old mother of 3 young children. I never enjoyed exercising, hated sweating and was terrified of the thought of even being in a gym. I was unhappy with my appearance and weight so with the encouragement of some friends I joined the gym in May 2014. I spent a few weeks taking spin classes and using the elliptical 3-4 days a week. I never would go alone and heaven forbid I touch anything that wasn't cardio.
After a month I became frustrated that I wasn't seeing any changes, after all now I was a self-professed "cardio queen". At this point I thought maybe I needed some help so I called in the big guns...I hired a personal trainer...but not for his "big guns", I had heard he was the best, that all his clients loved him and that he would be a good fit for my personality.
I hired Doug without even saying 2 words to him. I signed up to train 1x per week. After my first month I already lost 3% body fat! I became hooked. Doug has always been so supportive and motivating. He is possibly the most kind and patient person I know. He is always available to answer any questions and goes above and beyond to be flexible and accommodating. More importantly then all that, he is an amazing trainer. In the past 8 months I am currently down over 15% body fat and have lost more then 40 lbs and over 32 inches. He has helped me become confident lifting weights, doing TRX and boxing.
I look forward to every session with him and have since upped my sessions to 4-6 times a week simply because the value is there. I know that when I have a session with him I am guaranteed a great workout and the results shortly follow. He might be magical....but if not he at least knows the tricks to transform even the least athletic, most out of shape person into a now self-proclaimed "exercise phanatic". Doug is extremely professional and dedicated. I highly recommend him if you are serious about training and getting results. "
