I first met Marie when I was looking for a trainer to help me get in shape for the police academy. I was never a runner, but in about 6 months, Marie whipped me into shape. Since then, for the past 8 years, I've trained off and on with Marie (depending on what my schedule allowed). Marie always makes our training sessions fun and different. You never really know what she has in store for you before you get there. Marie has always taken into account my own level of fitness as well as others who have joined in group sessions. She never pushes us further than what we can handle, but always encourages us to go just a little more than we did the last time. My favorite workouts are Bleacher Bootcamp days, where she mixes running with assorted strength training exercises. Your muscles don't know what hit them!

Jonas is very very passionate. During training, he would explain what part of your body is being work on. And he is very easy to reach too. When I had questions regarding training/training at home, I was able to get answers from him right away. Recommended!

I work out with Phil Nicolaou twice a week. I started out slow as all I did prior was use the treadmill. I have increased my endurance and strength training due to his encouragement. He works with my crazy schedule and I am so grateful. I am down 20 lbs so far and my body is really shaping up. Phil has really helped me change my life and become a healthier person.

Elizabeth is fantastic! She put everything together for me in a format that was easy to manage and easy to understand. Her meal plans have helped me to lose already over 5 pounds in two weeks!! Not only did she help me with meal planning, but also helped me determine what exercise level was best for me to achieve the results I wanted. I started this at 190 and I weighed in today at 184.4. This is the healthiest "diet" I feel I have ever been on. I feel full throughout the day and I feel I am getting all the nutrients I am meant to get!

Jen has been a lifesaver! She really took the time to understand what I was looking for, my trouble areas, and taking any limitations into account. For every training session, she always has one of my favorite playlists on and is ready to go with a unique workout. She motivates me and helps me keep pushing myself when I don't think I can keep going. I also travel a lot for work, and Jen is great at giving me "vacation" workouts and checking up on my progress between sessions. I highly recommend Jen, you won't regret it!

I trained with Andre over the last year and he is a true professional. Each training session was designed specifically to me and he accommodated for an injury I had sustained prior to our sessions. Andre also brought a phenomenal attitude and created a fun atmosphere. I would personally recommend him to any of my friends or colleagues.

I found Lisa through her website after quite a bit of searching. I knew what I wanted to accomplish; I just didn't know how to get it done. Nutritional advice, personal training, and motivation is what I was searching for and exactly what I found in Lisa! She is encouraging, upbeat, and always focused on my development. The workouts are fun, varied and always challenging. As I have made lifestyle changes toward being healthier - I feel that I have a true partner in Lisa. She has worked with me on so many different muscle groups and overall cardio fitness my health, body and spirit are all stronger. Each time we go through something new she demonstrates just what a strong and effective teacher she is both my modeling the exercise and patiently giving feedback until my form improves. She is such a strong teacher that many of the exercises she has taught me I now can do at home. Lisa has a variety of videos that she has available for those in-between work outs along with those times I can't make my twice weekly workouts. Simply put - a joy to work with and a complete health coach. I feel nothing less than grateful to have found her.

Keith Barr is a wonderful person and a great track coach! He has been the Head Coach of the Rancocas Valley Track Club, which is a youth sports training program for kids as young as 5 years old, for many years now. The athletes love Coach Keith's easy going personality and the parents love his dedication to the program and to their kids. Keith is very positive, professional and encouraging to all participants. He welcomes athletes of all ages and ability levels and has consistently welcomed athletes with special needs. He has provided many young kids with the knowledge and early training they need to develop early motor skills and become familiar with the sport of track & field. As those athletes age and grow, they continue to get faster and stronger. For those who are older and ready for more serious training, he is very knowledgeable and demanding, yet understanding and encouraging and is able to cater to the individual needs of the athletes. The results speak for themselves as many of the RVTC athletes that Keith has coached have gone on to be track & field and cross country standouts at Rancocas Valley HS and/or college track programs.

Gian is extremely knowledgeable in the fitness world. His understanding of the mental, physical and science of training was key to enabling me to overcome obstacles I encountered as I struggled to get back in shape. He is also easy to work with and understand and I looked forward to working out with him - even when he pushed hard ! He challenges you to be what he knows you can be.

Mike is a terrific trainer- Extremely knowledgable about all aspects of his work, he is a pleasure to work with and always professional in his manner. Several times I had shoulder problems that Mike resolved through careful and methodical work in his training with me- better than the physical therapists I had used. I just had several procedures on torn tendons on my knee and when they are healed look forward soon to working with Mike to rebuild the strength in both knees and legs. That is how much I trust his work. You cannot go wrong with Mike --he has my highest recommendation!!

After a 1.5 year hiatus from any sort of workout regimen, I heard about Adult Gym Class through a Facebook post. After scheduling an initial assessment with Tony, the head honcho, I decided to start training again. It’s been about 5 weeks and I have nothing but awesome things to say about this place. The classes are tough, but manageable, and are never boring. No two classes have been the same. The small-group setting is ideal for me, because I do not enjoy being in an over-crowded class. It’s wonderful to have a coach there every step of the way. Tony is a great instructor and teaches you proper form & technique first & foremost. Getting back into shape will be no easy task, but I trust Tony’s knowledge and guidance and I look forward to continuing with the classes for a long time. I'm looking forward to doing a full mo-fo soon. Not sure what a mo-fo is? Come to Adult Gym Class and find out!

I recommend Alex to anyone....I've been doing the MRT semi-private training classes 2-3 times a week for the past month and I love it, I can already tell a difference in my body. The class is only 30 mins which is great but you get such a good workout in that time period.

Musa Cooper is an excellent personal trainer. He has the ability to train people from beginners level to advanced level. Once he knows a person's fitness goal, he will help them achieve it. Personally, I have achieved the level of feeling that my body is conditioned through Musa's training. I could not have achieved this by myself.

Jacquie was very responsive to my initial inquiries as I had never worked with a trainer before and was starting from zero. She was encouraging and not pushy. I appreciated the first session at no cost / she asked pertinent questions and was quick to understand my priorities. I felt she had a keen sense of 'where I was' in terms of weight training and was able to set manageable goals for me.

5 star because he listens. Because he doesn't believe in killing someone on the first day. Because he's believable. Because he doesn't blow smoke up you know where. Because this will be a process. Because he wants me to be successful as much as I want it. I'm hooked. Can't wait for my next session.

Beth is a terrific trainer! I am very pleased with how she helped me prepare for my Mt. Kilimanjaro climb. She gained an understanding of the climb profile and trekking demands, and then created a training plan to suit my schedule. My plan included endurance, interval, and strength training. She is an expert in all three of these areas. Additionally, Beth advised me on hydration and nutrition strategies, both in general and for the climb specifically. She was always enthusiastic, communicative, and prompt. My positive trekking experience was largely due to Beth's efforts. Her dedication to client's success is genuine. She'll always work hard to help individuals reach their goals!

Jon is a great motivational and knowledgeable trainer. He has in depth knowledge of kinesiology that gives him a real edge over other trainers. He knows exactly which exercises focus on which muscle groups and how much a particular muscle group can be pushed for each individual to avoid injury. In my experiences with Jon he has always been a focused professional while still building a personal relationship with me that has been motivational and encouraging. He has also given me some excellent nutritional tips. I would recommend Jon to anyone looking to get serious about an effective training program.
