Coach X has been an integral part in the improvement of my overall health and fitness. I really like that he offers group and personal training options. I take group 2x per week and personal sessions 2x per week. Not only have I lost weight but I feel great! 😊 His style of teaching is firm but fun. He has a great personality and provides just the right amount of support to get me to the next level. His workouts are challenging but effective and never boring. I've been to just about every gym in Richmond and several personal trainers with a fraction of the results I've received in less time from Coach X. He's amazing and I highly recommend him to anyone who is serious about improving their health and ready to do the work!

Coach X is a great personal trainer. He takes the time to actually work with you to get beyond the goal you set, from when you first started to train. Also he works around your schedule.

I have hired baldeep for my postpartum period of pregnancy.I have been training with baldeep for about like 3 weeks now and I am already seeing improvements. I find I actually look forward to my workouts. I really enjoy the variety & challenge he puts into the sessions. After giving birth, there are a lot of changes everywhere. You’re stiff and sore; not to mention, you’re mentally drained from staying up around the clock with your newborn.He is very patient and always very encouraging. I believe he is one of the most experienced & committed trainers around. I would recommend baldeep in a heartbeat .

Hello my name is Joshua Hunter and I am currently an athlete at Hampton University. While I was in High school I trained Baldeep. He was my trainer for almost two and a half years, and the exsperience was great. We worked on football conditioning and weight training. After the weight program that DeepElevation gave me I saw an increase in my performance on and off the field. Even though he was just my personal trainer he emphasized academics success. If I hadn't trained with Baldeep I would not be were I am today.

Baldeep was very approachable, sincere, and knowledgeable. He customized my fitness goals with emphasis on weight lost and toning. His approach is scientific with interval training, cardio, and weights. Baldeep is very professional and honest. He also gave me a plan for knowing what to eat. He is the best trainer I have ever had.

The staff at FSR fitness studio are very encouraging, motivational,conscientious and professional. What I like most about them is they believe in Total Fitness- Mind, Body and Soul. More specifically, I have been working with my personal trainer now for about 3 weeks and he has helped me to create a healthy meal plan, designed effective exercises that I can do at work and tailored a workout plan just for me as I work toward reaching my personal goals. I'm pleased to say that since I have been working with my PT, I'm more energetic and motivated, overall healthy and happy with my new Wellness journey?.

First, Let me just say I love the service Glatter Fitness provides so much I did a video testimonial! I am in the best shape of my life, I am happier, healthier, and stronger. I never really put much stock in strength training (weights and kettlebells) as a method to lose weight for fear it would make me "bulky" but it is actually quite the opposite. I have lost weight, I am stronger than I ever thought possible, and have lowered some health risks, which before starting were an issue for me. Michael always answers questions I have rather knowledgeably. He is far more knowledgeable than some other personal trainers I have encountered and can even provide me a source for the information he gives. If you are willing to put forth the hard work, actually come and work out, and follow his food guide, you will make improvements. I went from doing push ups on my knees to being able to do one hand push ups. I can lift weights in excess of 150 pounds. I have a smaller waist size and far better endurance. As far as accessibility, he does not limit when you can come, which I love. He has 5 class times throughout the day so it allows for flexibility. I don't foresee any time in the future where Glatter Fitness will not be in my life. When I say I am in some of the best shape of my life, I mean it in every way possible. I owe all this to Glatter Fitness!

Love Glatter Fitness. The boot camp style program with small group classes is perfect. The trainers are all fantastic and motivating. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants personalized training without the high cost of a personal trainer.

When you think about some personal trainers you think about what you see in movies, reality shows, and TV in general. What I mean by this is a hulking and aggressive figure who barks instructions and who reminds you more of a drill sergeant than a trainer. When I had my first session with Jacob my mind was instantly put at ease as his soft spoken demeanor and encouraging methods had me doing 2 or 3 more reps than I thought were possible. When taking breaks in between sets Jacob and I talk about our lives and passions and we have built a relationship stronger than just trainer and client. Since I started working with him I have lost multiple inches on multiple problem areas of my body and I am beginning to see the results I have craved for so long that I thought were lost forever. Without writing a novel singing Jacobs praises (which I could do as he is awesome!), I will just say that if you are in the Richmond metro area and are looking to shed some pounds for whatever reason please go see him at Crunch Fitness on Brook Road in Lakeside and I promise you that you will be happy you made that decision every day. He has given me some of my health back as well as my confidence so thank you Jacob!!!

I was very hesitant about online personal training at first, but Jacob really eased my worries with his positive energy and outlook on getting me the correct program. He really listened to the goals I wanted to accomplish and made the perfect program to suit those needs. He was there for me every step of the way and was quick to respond to my questions. His programs and very detailed, organized, and easy to follow. I would highly recommend Jacob to anyone looking to achieve their goals.

I’ve been working with Jacob on my personal training goals for a year. The results speak for themselves. His mastery and coaching of form and technique is superior. Furthermore he continues to challenge me with progressive training techniques that improve my strength and physical appearance. His continued professionalism and knowledge keeps me coming back.

Andrew is the best! If you want an effective workout with someone that will guide you to your best self then this is the personal trainer for you. He's an easy person to get along with, though that doesn't stop him from giving you a killer workout. Want to work with a professional who cares about your progress and doesn't just focus on weight but on overall health and how you feel, go with Andrew.

Linnard helped me reach my fitness goals and was able to work with me and my preexisting injuries and get results. He helped me plan my meals and gave me one-on-one personalized training and exercises that I could do on my own as well. Even though, I am 47 years old, he challenged me to to get optimum results by increasing my lean muscle and strength. He is the best personal trainer I've had, hands down. Debbie Morris

I was really impressed with Josh when I hired him as my personal trainer. My abs are one of my trouble spots; I have split abs from 3 pregnancies, and because of that , it's a dangerous spot to work on. Josh, however, knows his stuff, and was able to help me safely work my core. The difference was incredible! He's very polite and extremely professional. I'm kind of stubborn, but he motivated and pushed me not to quit, do one more rep, to keep going. He can clearly inspire anyone if he can get this feisty redhead to do it! I've suggested Josh to numerous friends, I highly recommend him as a trainer.

Josh was my personal trainer for about a year and a half. He trained me twice a week. I have had a number of trainers over the years, and I was in the best shape of my life when I worked with Josh. He pushed me hard, but appropriately so. Not only did he focus on my physical fitness journey, he focused on my eating habits as they related to the work I was doing in the gym to ensure I was eating enough to gain muscle and see progress. Josh has a good personality for the work he does - he's confident but not arrogant about it. I'd highly recommend him.

I worked with Josh as my personal trainer for several years. Josh did a great job with coming up with new routines and workouts to keep things fresh. He always took into account my challenge areas and pushed me when nessecary. I also brought friends with me to sessions and he came up with great partner workouts! My favorite saying of his, Don't be a cupcake! I highly recommend Josh to anyone looking for an awesome trainer and person!

CJ is an awesome personal trainer. I have several injuries that she was able to work around when she created my workout, and added in some exercise to make the areas strong. She also was able to realize I was bored easily, so the routines vary to keep me interested. I am definitely stronger since starting with her, and have lost 6 pounds in just about 5 weeks!
