    Optimal Fitness and Nutrition -Done for you grocery list and custom meal plans!

    (34 reviews)

    Train with a Doctor of Exercise Science and Master Trainer (more about that below) Not just a ordinary "certified" trainer. My clients train optimally! As I utilize the Optimum Performance Training Model, I I help you enhance the following with efficiency *Burn fat in ways you likely didn't realize *Build muscle (through proper nutrition) no hard dieting or boring diets! *Build core strength *Reduce Stress through specific techniques *Alleviate the need for medication *Alleviate back pain and other types of pain *Better Sleep *Lifestyle and Weight Management *Manage chronic diseases * Achieve that lean and fit look that most people desire. I also do a lot of couples training. Whether you're looking to be a bodybuilder want to lose weight pre-or post natal or are over 50 and want to maintain your strength,functional ability ,health and wellness I can help there also! Everybody is different and has different needs and my system allows the client to get a truly custom designed workout to fit their needs by looking at how their body moves and correcting any weak links to give them OPTIMAL results! Need proof of the success of my optimum performance training? Just look at my testimonials! Secondly I am the only fitness professional with a Doctorate in Exercise Science and Medical Fitness. This is a dual degree program that takes my education to the pinnacle of fitness and rehab. Many trainers are "certified," some have degrees. I combined everything to give myself the best training available! I went beyond "certified" trainer because that simply requires passing one exam. I obtained over 33 certifications 4 of which are Master Trainer certifications. These require rigorous testing above and beyond any "certified trainer," designation. These are often live experience where the trainer candidate must pass specializations and a live experience to be graded by top professionals in the field. Some of accredited certifications go beyond simply passing ONE exam like most trainers. I am (as you can see in my images above) a Master Trainer through 4 highly respected fitness schools. In addition I am certified in special needs clients (chronic disease management through exercise) low back disorders, sleep science, nutrition,lifestyle and weight management and more! That I can help people achieve life changing results through my program design and nutrition planning. When someone tells me they've lost inches, dropped 50+ pounds of body fat and feel better than ever, I've done my job! People look to me for guidance and support. I have helped stroke victims, cancer patients, obese clients and even Parkinson! When someone has difficulty walking and now 3 months later they can do one leg squats THAT is incredible!

    Hooked On Fitness LLC

    (10 reviews)

    I have been where many of my clients are when they come to me. Anyone can find a trainer to tell them what to do, but it's not every trainer that can understand the emotion behind needing to get in shape, feeling frustrated and sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. I can. I love helping my clients achieve their goals and hit benchmarks, no matter how small the improvement. When I see someone master a new move, increase their ability, achieve something new, it makes it worth the work! It makes me happy to hear someone say, "I couldn't do that (whatever it may be) a month, six months, etc. ago!"

    Hi, my name is Josh Zelkovitz, and my job is to whip your butt into the best shape of your life; that is, if you want it bad enough. I am a NASM and AAI certified personal trainer, and have worked in the personal training business for several years. My passion for health and fitness can be seen in my work ethic, and the results I get for my clients. In-home personal training, in particular, is one of my specialties. I enjoy working with individuals in their homes, as it provides for great personalized attention in a comfortable setting. Nothing beats the extra motivational push that a great trainer can provide. I also offer small group discounts, so your friends and family can share in the experience and benefit as well. And best of all, I can bring the equipment to you.

Optimal Fitness and Nutrition -Done for you grocery list and custom meal plans!

...I understand fitness training is a business, but I believe you have to put the client needs first, not just worry about meeting the expected sales quota...

After growing tired of working in various health clubs that lacked the focus on their client's needs, Phil Nicolaou took the challenge of building a whole new company that embodied his desire to help people reach their health goals.

With his doctoral degree in fitness training, national certifications, and his relentless desire to provide a personalized approach to his client's lifestyle and fitness needs, it wasn't hard for Phil to build his client base.

Gary of West Chester was one of my most successful clients. All of my clients are a pleasure to work with but he was one of them that took my advise and ran with it. 8 weeks later his body fat and other health markers improved so much that his physician was impressed. He made amazing progress. He also went at it full throttle.

If you want to improve your overall health and fitness while being motivated, inspired and attentively guided, enroll in the programs offered by Phil.
