I was looking for a personal trainer who would be able to travel to me and motivate me to be more active. I found Svetness fitness online and they were offering everything that I was looking for in a personal trainer (low prices, fitness and nutritional advice). I met with the owner Svet so he could determine what my goals were, which was mainly getting active and shedding some pounds. I was teamed up with Christina as my trainer. She is the Cheerleader I was looking for, always challenging me to jog a little longer or do a couple more crunches when I'm ready to give up. I am looking forward to improving and continuing my fitness goals with Svetness Fitness.

Jones4Fitness responded to my on-line request and promptly suggested Mariam Said as a Fitness Trainer. I pay by check every five training sessions and Jones4Fitness has been very professional and prompt in their communications. VERY IMPORTANT to me was a trainer who could adapt exercises to my physical needs. I have had knee surgery with another surgery pending on my second knee and right shoulder rotator cuff issues. Since January 2014 Mariam has led me through increasingly higher levels of exercise; always checking to stay inside my pain boundaries but extending my capabilities. By constantly designing exercises around my various and changing physical needs Mariam has given me the confidence to stop protecting my sore arm and knees and move forward. I now have increased muscle strength, range and flexibility, feel energized and have also lost weight. I would recommend Mariam Said for her compassion, understanding and training expertise and Jones4Fitness for their professionalism. Thanks Pamela Rieser

I am a mom in her 40's who has struggled with weight issues and maintaining a consistent excercise routine for years. I started fitness training with Fitness Stop LLC a little over a month ago. I met with Robert for an initial consultation, and then I was paired with Garid as my trainer. Garid is great! He comes to my home twice a week. Each excercise session is different from the last, challenging, and motivating. Garid adjusts my program as needed to accommodate previous knee and shoulder injuries. He pushes me beyond what I knew I was capable of in a friendly but firm manner. He is encouraging and knowledgeable. I feel stronger already, and I am truly excited about this fitness journey. With Fitness Stop as my guide I feel my quest for healthy living is off to a great start!

I like to think I know when I'm doing when it comes to weight loss as I've lost over 275 pounds over three years. Then I hit a very frustrating eight month plateau and decided I needed help. That's when I met Agnese and employed her to get me back on track. I complain a lot when working out with her but I have now lost weight seven straight weeks and counting. Agnese is encouraging, disciplined and perhaps most importantly fun to train with. She has a way to push you harder to earn her approval and while she freely offers praise she is quick to correct you if you get lazy with form or effort. Agnese is certified to train for any fitness goal you may have. Our group training is made up of a variety of ages with a diverse end result as goals. Whether you want to lose a few pounds, train for an event or just develop better lifetime fitness Agnese is the trainer for you.

I discovered Jenise through thumbtack and by reading reviews about her. I had been seeking for a personal trainer. After my initial consultation, I knew that she was the trainer for me. To give an overview of my fitness level: I am 26. I am a non-athlete. Actually, I’m pretty uncoordinated and clumsy and have never regularly exercised before. I love yoga but I also never got into doing it regularly enough. Its rare to get the motivation for me to get up and go to the gym which is why I chose to seek a personal trainer that can come to me and give me an individualized service. When I contacted Jenise, she offered for a consultation and to see my goals and ultimately see if my schedule will fit in with hers. I should have worn appropriate clothing at that time to do a fitness assessment… nevertheless, after booking she came to me for the assessment, measurements, and weigh-in. We completed 12 sessions in a 1 month period. Just like learning a new skill or a language or an insurance for a healthier life in the future— every penny is worth it. If I could afford it, I would for sure continue working out with Jenise 3 times a week all my life!! But this has been a really great stepping stone to a STRONGER me. The workouts as other reviews mention are different each time although during every session you focus on different parts of the body. Usually you do one session focusing on lower body, one on upper body and one focusing on the core. She makes sure that your workout is high-intensity and always adds new moves or gadgets to the workouts to make it fun. Boxing, resistance training outside in the neighborhood, when the weather is nice, were some of the highlights for me. Even though, I liked the convenience of her coming to me.. I also liked going to her location at the end of the week to top off my workout and get the MOST out of my weekly workouts. Her gym has all the equipment needed to kick butt. She really understands the anatomy and where your weaknesses lie as a unique individual. She builds your workouts according to these and changes the number of repetitions or the amount of weight as necessary during the workout. She watches you closely on your form and ensures you get the most out of every exercise. I personally never liked working out because I never knew how to. I knew I had terrible form and didn’t know how to fix it. Jenise became a teacher to me and showed me how to properly lift. She also always reminded me to breathe when I exerted energy (I tend to hold my breath when I lift .. its no bueno!) Now I see that I have made progress and I have learned proper form, I am keen to continue with it. My 12 sessions came to an end last week. I would 100% renew more sessions with Jenise if it weren’t for my mother looking to join a gym with me. Right now, my finances and time aren’t allowing me to afford both, but I know for certain Jenise and I will be training again in the future. I can tell she has made a STRONGER me and I don’t want to lose any of what I have worked for this past month! If you are hesitant, I get that. Truly. But give it a shot. Jenise is wonderful. Trust her, she knows exactly what you need. I'm so glad I trusted her on this journey. I highly recommend CW3 to everyone!

Emmanuel is the best personal trainer I've ever experienced and one of the most knowledgable people I know about health that I've ever talked with. He works with you from the ground up to not just "get in to shape" but he will help develop a true and livable, healthy lifestyle in your workouts, nutrition, and day to day activities. WORKOUTS Emmanuel's work outs can be hard, but never grueling. Although If you are wanting to look like an athlete, he will definitely train you like one! Emmanuel doesn't yell at you and tries to throw more weight on you or pushes you to muscular failure. First he assesses the structural integrity of your body and muscular system and see how you move and handle weight. After a workout assessment, he will make suggestions on how to compensate or improve your overall balance. True and complete strengthening can really only take place once the body is working together in a balanced harmonizing way. A person cannot call themselves fit, if they only have one developed part of the body. The entire body has to be conditioned and developed; Total fitness. Once your form is in place, then he increases your function, progressively adding additional weight, reps and intensity/ variations.

To put it succinctly for those that don’t want to read this whole review..... Julian, as my personal trainer, is phenomenal!  He is super knowledgeable, well trained, educated, I would say an expert about training the body to get the results you want. He has a great energy, enthusiasm, and passion for getting you in the best shape you can be!  I can't recommend him highly enough. I chose to work with Julian, personal trainer and owner of Prepare for Performance, cause he listened to what my goals were and his approach to over all strengthening fit with me. I love how he mixes up the workouts always focus on engaging my core in everything we do. I have never really exercised or been into fitness because weight was never an issue, until I hit my mid 40s. Feeling really fatigued, bad posture, headaches, gravity.... Working with Julian is so important to me because able to judge my abilities and push them just the right amount. He plans the workout so that I'm pushing my limits every session. While I whine and complain he gets me through it.  Even with all the technology, YouTube ect...these are not workouts I could do on my own.  Every session is different, challenging, and feels wholly customized so I may reach my goals. Working out with Julian may be my best decision of the year.  My posture is so much improved, I have upper body strength *for the first time in my life*, I am able to do things I would never have done before and feel great (while I am still not thrilled with how I look,there are improvements, I actually will take my shirt off and swim. god, I missed swimming!) Working out is still hard and something I would never do if it were not for Julian. He is fun, engaging, smart, and a “hard a#$” when he needs to be. If you are wanting to feel better about yourself, feel stronger, happier, and joining the gym just does not do it for you...Julian will get you into shape!!

Mr. LaMont is a very knowledgeable & dedicated fitness trainer. He has gone above & beyond to put me in a position to succeed with my weight loss goals. He's a great motivator, as he does it in suttle ways to make yuu think about what you are or are not doing. He has some slogans that just make you shake your head in amazement & after you think about it, it makes perfect sense to you. He listens to my concerns & pushes me when I need a push. It has been a joy to work with him in helping me change my lifestyle to a healthy one. Best investment in myself I've ever made. Miss L. Jones

Niki is absolutely amazing as a trainer! She's firm but also reassuring and motivating. She's extremely knowledgeable about fitness and nutrition and is very accommodating when it comes to what I am comfortable with. It has only been one week since I've been working with her and I am already seeing results. Don't even think twice about booking Niki if you are looking for a challenging yet effective personal trainer.

George has been my personal trainer for 2 months now and I couldn’t be happier with my decision to choose him as a facilitator in my fitness journey. I train with him about 3 times a week and since I’ve started, I can already see and feel results. The idea of exercising and going to the gym always used to give me anxiety. I knew I wanted to be fit and healthy but I did not know where to start. After I started training with George, I began to see that exercising can be less of a struggle and more enjoyable. I actually look forward to going to the gym now because he has and continues to provide me with the directive and tools needed to attain my fitness goals...and it’s been working! From day one, he listened to my needs (which I feel is very important for a trainer to do) while pushing me to levels I didn’t know I could reach. Not only does he encourage fitness in the gym but also outside of the gym by providing a simple meal plan, despite his not being a nutritionist. George is very reliable, and communication has never been an issue. I can always appreciate someone who values my time and money as much as theirs. Which leads me to mention that his prices are VERY reasonable compared to others in the area. I can honestly say that if you choose to go with George as your personal trainer, you will not be disappointed!
