I am male and 63 years old. Marie Solimeo has been my personal trainer for more than ten years! When I started working with her, I had recently gone through a difficult treatment for a serious illness. I seemed to feel tired all the time. Since that time, Marie has helped me gradually raise my fitness level, using a combination of careful strength and aerobic training. Through her patient work, she has been immensely helpful and has really improved my quality of life.

Marie is a terrific trainer. She pushes me to work hard, but she makes it fun. Every day is different --but always a challenge. After 25 years with many different personal trainers, I finally found someone who makes me want to exercise! And I've lost 20 pounds in the process

EXCELLENT!!! Jonas is the best personal trainer I've ever seen. I've actually been trained by him for 4 months. Why I just comment now is I believe that data and experience is more convincing. I've lost 18 lbs during these four months, more important is my body fat started at 17% to 6.7% ! I can't believe myself! But it's true! Additionally, Jonas is more than a professional trainer but a kindhearted, patient, humorous friend! I highly recommend him and F.A.M.E fitness! You will never regret your choice! Hopefully my poor English didn't make any misunderstanding (at least Jonas can bear my English, lol)

Great trainer! Adjusts to your specific schedule, needs, and location for training. The FAME fitness gym is also really nice. No work out is identical, and each work out is challenging but focused around accentuating your strengths while strengthening your weakness. Definitely recommend FAME fitness and it is now a part of my weekly work out regimen.

Love my trainer, Jonas! Very knowledgable in fitness and nutrition. Workouts are different everyday and I never get bored. Plus the gym is clean and the members/staff are welcoming and friendly. Highly recommend if you need a little motivation to stay on track with your fitness goals!

I only started with Marcellus Beasley as my personal trainer two weeks ago and already feel 100% better. He is great to work with and knows how to motivate me. He works me to my limit and understands where that is and doesn't push me more than that. I have lost 8 pounds in two weeks and can already tell how much stronger I feel. He offers great advice about diet and exercise. I look forward to working with Marcellus for a long time in the future.

Marcellus has been great to work with. I was looking to make some long term lifestyle changes, take better care of myself, and ultimately look and feel better. After only a few sessions I've see and felt noticable improvements. Marcellus makes it so I actually want to workout. I can't image doing this with any other trainer.

I have known Phil since high school, and it seems that his work as a personal trainer is a natural extension of who he is as a person. His passion for sports, and genuine concern for the welfare of the people in his life are vital elements of his profession. Helping people to better themselves is what it's all about, and this guy lives and breathes it. The depth of Phil's devotion to the field of physical fitness is astonishing, as evidenced by his countless certifications. Most importantly, his good nature and friendly disposition make it a pleasure to be in his company! I fully endorse Phil, both as a friend, and a source of inspiration to those who want to reach their potential.

My experience with Gymstarzsfitness LLC has been amazing!! As I'm sure we have all experienced this at one time or another that sticking with an exercise program is easier said then done. I would be on again, off again. I was my own worst enemy. I Would always put off going to the gym for tomorrow and tomorrow again and again. I just couldn't get myself motivated. Then I heard about Gymstarzfitness LLC. At first I thought I couldn't afford to pay a personal trainer, and if I was going to get any type of results, I would have to at least go 2 times a week which I thought would be out of the question and way too expensive. But then I found out about Gymstarzfitness LLC's great rates and I gave it a try. That was 5 months ago, and I'm still going strong. Down 20 pounds and 2 sizes. My overall body fat percentage has gone down and the best thing of all is my clothes have never fit or looked better. I went from making excuses to actually looking forward to my training sessions. Each week, I can't wait to see the new workouts that the trainers have come up with. Always pushing you to that next level and always having something new and different. Gymstarzsfitness LLC has given me that motivation I needed and didn't allow me to give up. The trainers are so supportive and get just as excited as you do when you start to see results. As Gymstarzsfitness LLC has grown, it has also been great to watch the other Gymstarzfitness LLC members obtain their goals. We found ourselves, not even knowing each other, liking and tracking each other's progress. Which makes me feel like I'm a part of a team as well. I have my confidence back and haven't felt this good about myself in a long time. I highly recommend Gymstarzsfitness LLC to anyone who is serious about making that change to be the better you that we all know we can be. If you put in the work and dedication, Gymstarsfitness LLC will get you there and won't break the bank while doing it. Kim Heit

I have worked with Andre for about a month now. In the short period of time I've worked with him, I'm already seeing amazing results. Andre is professional, personable, and a pleasure to work with. He knows when to encourage and when to push, though never too much. I've benefited greatly from his extensive knowledge in exercise and nutrition. Having worked with other personal trainers, I can say that Andre is one of the best. Whatever your goal, he'll lead you every step of the way. Highest recommendation.

Andre is an awesome personal trainer. I met him at my gym a few years ago and haven't worked with anyone else ever since because it's hard to find someone as genuine as he is and truly cares about well-being. He's encouraging, funny, always has a smile on his face, and is full of energy. He pushes me to be better and doesn't give up on me when I give up on myself. His passion for healthy living and wanting that for others is evident---I highly recommend him for anyone in their fitness journey.

While this new step towards working with a personal trainer is a bit daunting, Andre is very understanding and supportive of helping me to be successful. He is responsive, flexible, offers clear goals and is very easy to work with (despite the fact that I am a reluctant customer)! :)

I am a student athlete at the William Penn Charter School. I am a senior and had a problem with my shoulder and lower back so I needed a one-on-one experience with a trainer. I was referred to Gian and decided to give him a try. I was so impressed by his skill and knowledge that I was driven to come every single week! Gian worked hard to make sure that I had a great program to compliment my back and shoulder injuries. He made my bench press, squat, and deadlift numbers so much better than the first week and the results of it all were amazing! My shoulder feels better and same with my lower back! I could not have asked for a better way to spend my baseball off-season! Thank you for teaching me all that you did! I hope you continue to grow and that other people get to experience all that I did!

Gian is a great trainer. He is able to custom tailor a workout plan for every client based on specific goals, concerns, and abilities. His focus on technique really puts you at ease that you will never be pushed to compete an excessive that is unsafe.

Gian is personable and professional and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a personal trainer.

I’m so lucky I found Tony. He is very responsive and knowledgeable. He’s gotten me into gear and I can feel the difference already. I’ve already had four sessions and have no intention of stopping any time soon. He really is a great trainer, he does not allow any distractions to interfere with your work out, he is never on his cell phone and is completely committed to helping you do the workouts correctly. His studio is very nice, clean, quiet, and relaxing to workout in, also a bonus I never have parking issues. If you’re looking for a new trainer I highly recommend Tony at Adult Gym!!

His custom workouts, which are designed to increase your lactate threshold, are tough and effective. Since starting less than one month ago, I have already noticed myself getting stronger and leaner. I highly recommend him!

In one word I can describe Mike…. AMAZING!!! I've only been working with him for a few weeks now and I feel like he has already changed my life. I hired him to help me strengthen my knee post-surgery, improve my over-all strength, increase my endurance and my most important issue….over-all toning. He is very professional, knowledgeable, courteous and always on time. He responds very quickly to any questions I have when I don't see him. He went out of his way and made me a "goodie bag" of different whey proteins for me to try before I spent money buying one. How freaking nice is that!!! He never ceases to amaze me. He is constantly creating new ways to challenge me and make my workouts fun and different. We meet in the park three times a week and I'm astounded at how he uses the simplest methods to really create challenging workouts for me. One thing is for sure, he is not predictable. I look forward to my time with him. He is very encouraging and makes me feel good about myself. My money has been well spent on him and I would highly recommend him as a trainer. I can't imagine what my days would be like without him. Jill

Mike has been great. We train at pompano beach park 3x/week. He is professional, courteous and always challenges me to be better than I was the session before. Mike has helped me increase my strength, improve my tone and increase my endurance. I have signed up for another monthly package with him for January. He is well worth the money spent on a trainer. I love that he meets me at the park- I hate being confined to a gym. He is a great trainer.

Ed has been my trainer since the start of 2015. My weight was at an all time high & knew I had to change my lifestyle. Ed devised a plan to help me achieve my fitness goals by educating me on the process of healthy living. Week after week, I began to see a change and have him to thank for motivating me to stay dedicated to achieving my fitness goals. His professionalism in the industry, positive outlook for fitness, & motivation has helped me reach obtainable goals in a timely manner. From TR-x training, supplement suggestions, to meal prep, Ed can help you stay balanced throughout your training experience.

I have been a client of Rodger's for going on a year now and I am not sure how I was managing my fitness life before him. Well thats a lie....I do know how - I just was not. I have never been a healthy eater and I always lacked heavily in the motivation area when it came to working out. Rodger holds me accountable for each workout and pushes me to be a better version of myself. You aren't just getting a trainer with Rod, you are getting a life coach, a nutrionist and a pillar of support. Rod is flexible with his clients which works perfectly with my chaotic work schedule. My bad eating habits have slowly diminished over time and my muscle definition is showing through. I can honestly say I never imagined either of those happening, but then I started going to Rodger for my healthy lifestyle needs.

If you’ve stumbled upon this review of TJ Coakley, more than likely there’s a reason. You may have a specific need that perhaps you don’t even fully realize. TJ is well qualified to train your body, he definitely knows his stuff, but there are lots of people out there who are qualified to train your body. The thing is, TJ’s more than a trainer. He’s a coach. TJ concerns himself with you as a whole. I was hesitant to hire a trainer, but within a few minutes at my initial consultation, I knew I was in good hands and I felt at ease right away. Then at our first session, I began to feel even better than “at ease”, I became hopeful and excited. He took an actual interest, more so in fact than anyone whose help I’ve sought ever has. I have some specific issues that need extra consideration, and from day one, I felt genuinely invested in. TJ is a kind and gentle man. Not to say he won’t make you work, because he will. But he’ll work with you based on you. He listens, hears, and responds to your needs. TJ is knowledgeable, dedicated, and very well equipped. If you’re sitting on the fence about hiring a trainer, hop off. TJ will help you reach your goals in more ways than you’d expect, and you’ll be really glad you let him help you.

Joe has an evidence based view of fitness and nutrition and backs up his views and workouts (and nutritional counseling) with research from peer reviewed journals. This was important to me. His approach is very personalized and based on an individual assessment. It’s not one-size-fits-all and it’s very thorough. The workouts are designed to strengthen weak areas and build a strong foundation. Then he helps you build on the foundation. What I opted for was one personal session per week, which consists of one-on-one training, no other people present, in a well-equipped facility with ample parking. 3 prescriptive workouts per week focusing on my particular needs (and the workouts change as you progress), and nutritional counseling, which is quite detailed. He’s available via text/email as you have questions. Sessions are challenging but supportive, he’s not a drill-sergeant type but definitely pushes you. He has a long-term view of fitness and sets you up for long term success. It is an intelligent approach to what is often a confusing endeavor. One quality I look for in people I hire or businesses I use is excitement. If someone is excited about what they’re doing I think it’s a great indicator of their work ethic and dedication to their clients. I definitely see that Joe is excited to use his academic and clinical knowledge and experience to improve peoples’ lives.

Training with Joe has been an absolute pleasure. He is a true professional and a gentleman. Joe has an evidence-based approach to his personal training which I find extremely important. All of our sessions are tailored to my specific needs and goals. Joe will work at your pace and work around your schedule to make the sessions productive and valuable. He is always available via phone/text and will touch base with you on a weekly basis to set-up training sessions or even answer some questions about diet/exercise that you may have like myself. Joe is extremely flexible and easy going, which makes everything run efficiently and without added stress. What makes Joe stand out is his educational background. Joe is very well educated on human anatomy, nutrition, health and the science behind it all. He is punctual, dedicated, respectful, and compassionate. I highly recommend Joe, without reservation, and look forward to progressing in our weekly sessions.

I am currently using Paragon Training and would highly recommend Cal McLellan for your mobile training needs. Mobile training allows me to schedule sessions at my convenience, in the privacy of my own home, which has made me continue on with the program. I automatically renewed my sessions and am currently into my second round of mobile training with Cal. He has tailored a program just for me, bringing all the equipment needed for each workout. His knowledge of this unique personal training program, coupled with incorporating nutrition into my personal plan, has already helped me in my quest to reach my goal of not only wanting to change my lifestyle to a healthy one as I get older, but inspiring me to workout, which going to a gym never did. I would highly recommend Cal if you are looking for someone who not only motivates you, but understands that not everyone (especially me!) likes to workout. I explained my past training experiences at gyms, and how feeling "bullied" left me feeling defeated. Cal is the complete opposite, yet I assure you...motivating at the same time. His goal is an all-around approach to see your personal fitness and nutrition goals attained. This is a long review, but I am very happy with everything so far. Call. You will, too.

Calum is an awesome trainer. He is one of the only trainers I actually trust and feel confident working with---he has a strong background in strength training and programming, but is also constantly doing research and experimenting with programming to bring his clients' training to the next level. Not only is he extremely competent, but he is also a pleasure to work with-- he provides a solid balance of pushing you to work harder to reach the next goal or the next seemingly impossible weight or rep and also being an extremely nice guy who is easy to be around. He's a good fit for any athlete of any ability. He is the only trainer my mom, who is older and has a lot of mobility and health issues, will work with because he truly listens and responds to the client at hand and meets their needs. His programming has pushed her, and me, to our strongest. He is one of the rare trainers that puts his client's goals and accomplishments above his own ego. I can't recommend him enough for anyone looking for a either a personal or group trainer. He can make a work out out of literally any equipment so there are never any excuses!
