I have been training with Ricky Jackson for over 10 years. I first started when I began training for the Golden Gloves. My goal was to win my age group in my weight division. Ricky had the unique background of being a former professional world class fighter and a body builder. His skills in both areas helped me accomplish my goal and I won the Houston championship. I have continued to train with Ricky and introduced my 2 daughters who now train with him also. They are both in outstanding shape and capable of being personal trainers themselves. One of my daughters became an ODP level soccer player who now plays Division 1 soccer. Whether you want to become an accomplished athlete or just attain your highest level of fitness Ricky has a program he can design and implement for you. I must warn you thought that Ricky is just as committed to your goals and will make sure you are advancing and progressing daily. He is a trainer for all levels of fitness and ages. More importantly he is an amazing person and I am proud to call him my best friend! Scott Bowers UBS Financial Services Inc. Senior Vice President

When looking for a personal trainer I wanted to find someone who would take a personal interest in my success and push me beyond what "I" think my capabilities are. Ricky does this and more. He has a great workout program but he goes above and beyond to make sure your nutritional needs are being met as well. In less than three months I saw a significant change in the way I looked and felt. What I love most about Ricky's program is the mix of exercises. For example, Ricky will use boxing as cardio vs. running on the treadmill, he will mix in the ab work so you won't be overwhelmed doing them all at once, and he uses a mix of body, machine and free weights to keep your body guessing! Not to mention, if you are an athlete like myself he adds an entirely different realm of workouts in the mix. Ricky is by far one of the best trainers in the business!

Ricky is excellent. He is knowledgeable and very professional in his training. Ricky has the experience to draw upon so he can design a workout program that fits my exact needs. I have been working out with Ricky for 8 months now and am completely satisfied. I have worked out with numerous other personal trainers but I have never been as well trained as I am with Ricky. I HIGHLY recommend Ricky.

I love my workouts at LMSL Training. The workouts are never the same and are very effective (you'll feel the burn after working out with him). I remember first working out with Jerell I would use 10lbs for dumbbell set. Now I'm using 25lbs when doing dumbbell sets, which I thought I would never get to this point. Jerell is very personable and helpful when coming to his clients. He shared with me different routines I can do when I'm away from his gym & gave me tips on what to eating throughout the day. You can really tell he has a true passion in the Fitness Industry & enjoys transforming people. I would gladly recommend anyone who's looking for a personal trainer to train with Jerell. Stick with him and you'll see real results & great improvements in your body!

I have always struggled with my weight. I have tried a number of approaches to weight loss such as dieting and weight lose supplements and nothing seemed to work. I was introduced to Mr. Tigner by an associate and after speaking to him. I immediately knew I wanted him as my personal trainer. He showed passion for his clients and was very knowledgeable on the goals he wanted to set for me. I have only been working with Mr. Tigner for a couple of months but I have already seen a big difference in my health and weight loss. Mr. Tigner is the best!!! I have lost weight and I really feel good about myself. I would recommend him to anyone who is ready to improve on their health and overall appearance!!! Thank You Coach!!!!

My husband and I started LMSL Training (couples session) almost three months ago. Our Personal Trainer Jerell Tigner, is awesome!!! The workouts are intense and fulfilling and the results are noticeable. If you want a great workout program, someone who is patient and consistent, with affordable pricing... LMSL is the right fit for you!

Darren has been my personal trainer for about 10 months now and I am so grateful that my wife discovered his profile on Thumbtack. I wholeheartedly endorse him for anyone considering embarking on a new fitness goal or even for seasoned athletes looking for a jolt if their existing routine has gotten stale. Darren not only excels in the physical aspect of training, but he also brings a balanced mental component to our sessions. As anyone can attest who's recently started to workout after a long layoff, the hardest part is starting. What they also don't tell you is that maintaining your workouts is probably the next hardest hurdle to tackle. But that's where Darren really shines. Under Darren's tutelage, I've become accountable to myself and I really look forward to my sessions to see what new exercises we'll incorporate or to try and beat my weightlifting bests. I would classify Darren's workout management as 'adaptive'; that is, he can take what he's given in terms of available equipment, or if the gym is too crowded on a given day, and craft a workout routine that is challenging and never boring (he takes what's he's given and makes lemonade from lemons). I think that boredom is responsible for more broken fitness promises than any other factor. With Darren as my trainer, I've never been bored and almost a year later I don't think we've ever repeated a workout! With Darren as my trainer I've been steadily increasing my strength gains while steadily shedding excess weight and improving my cardio fitness. Darren also provides nutritional counseling, rehabilitative training, and he will travel to your home or business for your workout needs. He really is my 'health and fitness concierge,' and anyone considering personal training services shouldn't pass up the opportunity to train with Darren. Robert N.

Darren has been a Godsend to me and in just the past 6 weeks has completely and totally changed my life! He is an incredibly smart, wise and knowledgeable trainer who is always in a happy, positive mood, full of energy, and treats me with the upmost respect and kindness. His expert coaching and guidance has been invaluable to me. I no longer suffer from chronic lower back and sciatic nerve and leg pain like I did prior to hiring him. He pushes me to do my best and always makes it fun and interesting with new activities that I would never have thought of that are transforming not only my body, but my mind and soul too. My friends and family have begun to see the changes in me and say I radiate with health and happiness now. He is positive and uplifting during training exercises and the time flies because he is so fluid at moving me from one exercise to the next. I am never bored. He is a gifted, talented human being with a heart of gold and soul to match. This man truly cares about his clients and I couldn’t be happier with my choice of trainers. I look forward to working with him twice a week for the foreseeable future. Darren is the real deal and I would definitely recommend his personal training services! He has earned my trust despite my reluctance and concern due to numerous health issues I had and not knowing my way around a gym, and I am truly grateful to him for everything he has done to make my life better. I look forward to every session! God Bless and thank you SO MUCH Darren!

I HATE working out! I LOVE to eat but I realize that "All eat and no working out makes you look terrible and feel horrible!" Marcaus made my work out experience FUN and even though it was tough, he motivated me and encouraged me the whole time. Excercising is difficult but if you have an awesome trainer, it makes it WORTH it! I can't wait to see my results within a month and I'm going to take it one day at a time. I feel really good that I started this journey with someone who is passionate about his work ethic and improving other people's lifestyle! Happy Client, BNW.

I am writing this to let the world know of one of the greatest person I have had the pleasure of coming across the gym in the many years of working out. Who am I talking about, William Nguyen, aka better known as Will of course. I have known Will for many years now, I met him at the 24 Fitness located in Diary Ashford, in Houston Texas. I remembered Will coming to the 24hr Fitness as a personal trainer, he was always focus on his task at hand, which was training his client. He caught my attention, because if how focus and determine he was in making sure the client was well trained. Believe me when I say, " Those are hard, and far in between to find in many personal trainers that I have observed in the many years of working out. " Will is very dedicated to his training, and I have seen him grow as a person, and trainer. Will has never change is way of taking care of his clients, he just continued to get better at his job. Will takes is training seriously, he has recently taken his training, and body to a new level. He is now competing and doing an excellent job at it. I see nothing but greatness for this young man, he is one of a kind. I would not hesitate to hire Will to train me. He is worth more than I can put in words. If you don't believe a word I say, check him out for yourself, you will not be disappointed. Will Power Fitness.

I am 47 years old and i've worked out all my whole life . I've never had a personal trainer. Will is extremely detailed. I'm sore for days but I saw results after three sessions. I highly recommend anyone whether you've had a personal trainer or not to work with him. You tell him what you want ( what you want your body to look like) he listens well and gets it done. He works very well around your schedule. Thank you Will!

I have just started working out with Tony and I have to say it has been a very rigorous and fast-paced training so far! I really enjoy the fact that Tony is knowledgable, and is a skilled trainer. I also know I needed someone who was going to motivate and push me and Tony is doing that! For him it is about the substance of the training sessions meaning he is not just interested in running throught the session just for the sake of doing so.. he really takes his time to ensure you have the correct form, and are correctly completing all of your sets. I had not worked out in awhile, but now that I am again, I believe I made the right choice in choosing Tony as my trainer and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to get into shape and live a healthier lifestyle!

Donovan is an excellent trainer! I have only been training with him for a couple of weeks and I am already seeing improvements in my strength and endurance. His sessions are fun and easy-going, but challenging at the same time. He pushes me just the right amount, so that I am working hard but not overexerting myself. The fitness plan he made for me is specifically tailored to my own personal goals. Being a busy grad student, I appreciate the fact that he brings the workouts to me and he is very flexible with scheduling. He also has the most competitive prices of any trainer I've seen. I highly recommend him!

I just had my first training session, and Donavan is absolutely incredible! It was all extremely, extremely professional and above board. Now the workout, to be honest, I haven't worked out in a while so it felt pretty brutal, but Donavan knew exactly where my limits were and was able to back off just the right amount to keep me motivated but not have me getting to the point of exhaustion. Also, he's clearly very, very knowledgeable on the subjects of not just exercise but nutrition as well. Working with Donavan, I can see the way clear to getting into the shape I want to be. Definitely recommend!

Greg is my personal trainer at Houston Gym. At the request of my naturopathic and primary care physicians, I was instructed to begin a resistance training program to address a few health issues. I was skeptical of personal training, was unsure of my capacity to "stick-to-it" and achieve my aims. The owner of the gym suggested I work out with Greg. 2 months later, I am in better shape than in my 30s (I'm 54). Greg is conscientious, knowledgeable, skilled and is exemplary at tailoring my workout to fit my aims. He knows how to vary a work out (upper and lower) to address not only groups of muscles but refine the workout so as to address specific muscles that need toning. His attention to detail helped me calibrate and equalize what seemed to be an strength imbalance between my left and right sides (very odd). He is also quite patient, truly listens and varies the workout routine to keep it building my body without the boredom that can be possible in working out. Not only is Greg a great trainer, but he also is quite knowledgeable about the body's musculoskeletal system and the nature of injuries to the system. I recently had a shoulder injury (doing upward dog in yoga); and had to see an orthopedic specialist. Greg was very sensitive to the doctors instructions and modified my upper body workouts in such a manner that I can continue to build my upper body at the same time give my shoulder injury time to heal. Without question, the reason I'm still with Greg as my personal trainer is that he makes it a challenge, yet always within my range. Highly recommend Greg

I've seen great results in the 3 weeks I've been working with Tonya. As a trainer she is knowledgeable, motivating and enjoyable to be around. She knows what I am trying to achieve and she makes a plan accordingly. When I was going to the gym, I would skip days if I wasn't feeling up to it, but with Tonya I actually look forward to workouts. This is my first time using a home trainer and I was nervous about who would be coming into my home, but Tonya is friendly, fun, professional. I recommend her highly to all my friends and family in the area!

The best trainer I've ever worked with! I shredded pounds like crazy. Mark is very knowledgeable and patient with his clients. He truly knows what he'd doing and he wants to see you push hard to get to where you want to. He is as happy as you when you see results. He focuses on all your needs and works with you to achieve your goals. He's as invested and dedicated as you would be to help you lose weight or get toned or whatever it is you are trying to reach. He even sells nutrition plans and those helped me so much because I had no idea where to start to count macros. He planned out a nutrition plan for me and I had lost a crazy 22 lbs! He's the best, you gotta work with him.
