Jeff H. In early February of 2015, I made the decision to hire a personal trainer to help lose weight and get into better physical condition. I had in mind a preference to work with an "independent" trainer; not one associated with one of the "chain" fitness centers. A quick Internet search led me to Josh Norris. I was very impressed with Josh during both our initial consultation and the complimentary first session he offered. Since then, I have signed up for one year's worth of training (my idea, not Josh's). In the four months I've been training with Josh, I've lost about 25 pounds, added a noticeable amount of muscle, and significantly improved my cardiovascular endurance. I've come to consider Josh a good friend in addition to a remarkable trainer. He is very knowledgeable about human physiology and the roles played by both diet and exercise in getting into shape. His attitude is unfailingly positive. He is a tremendous motivator. He understands that each person is different and requires an approach tailored specifically to him or her. He is flexible in terms of scheduling, while being very appreciative when his clients are flexible with him as well. He varies his training routines so his client's body doesn't get used to a particular sequence of exercises and "stagnate". This is also effective at making the workouts more interesting. He is very mindful of the possibility of injury or overtraining and watches carefully and asks questions to ensure that he is pushing hard, but not too hard. Let me say in closing that Josh is an extremely professional and RELIABLE trainer and I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend him to family or friends. I find him to be a young man of sterling character.
