Personal Training

I am in my tenth session with John at Verity Fitness and Nutrition. I am going twice a week and thoroughly enjoy my workouts. He's professional, organized, and effective. John provided a free consultation during which he asked in depth questions to fully understand my true goals. He also listened intently about my injuries and limitations and customized his programs to suit me and my goals. After we began the program, John continues to check in regularly to ensure we are on the path to my goals. My energy and weights have steadily increased over the ten sessions, and I appreciate how John is prepared with a relevant workout before each session. I am pleased with my progress. He has everything you need for a full body workout and engages in clear communication. Not all personal trainers focus on form but John is diligent in ensuring proper form. I look forward to my future success and our continuing sessions.

Saying John is an excellent trainer would be an understatement. He really gets to know you first and sets an environment that is both comfortable and enjoyable to work out in. Throughout the workout journey, he becomes more of a friend rather than a teacher and his knowledge really show throughout this entire process with visible results. He will also let you know if your body is not ready for certain types of workouts or even weights, and will let you know and prepare your body efficiently to be ready to move on. I highly recommend John no matter what stage of physical shape you are in and can guarantee you will have no regrets working with him. He is an excellent teacher and rather than each session feeling like a normal session, they're an investment worth every penny.

John is the best trainer I've ever worked with after 8 years of training. He's professional, organized, and effective. My favorite thing about him is that he always shows up with a plan connected to my goals. With his nutrition input, I'm losing weight and increasing endurance. My only complaint, is that I wish I met him sooner! If you want RESULTS, make the commitment with Verity. I'm extremely grateful for his counsel and I know you'll feel the same.

Health and Wellness Coaching

This is my second time working with John, and my experience has been truly life changing! I trained with him a few months back and he helped me regain my ability to run pain free, and get my passion for running back. He has a unique approach and an amazing ability to teach. This time I wanted to focus on my nutrition, and John has helped me so much. He explains things in ways that make it easy to understand. He immediately removed my anxiety about healthy eating, and made me feel comfortable that I don’t have to give up foods I enjoy, but just find balance and be aware of what I’m eating. I feel like I have learned so much about how training and food work together. Just a great experience, thank you John!

So glad you reached out again Karla! Thanks for the review, that is awesome. I know we are just starting our nutrition journey, but I know you will attack it the same way you did with our fitness training. Be ready to feel amazing.

John has done an excellent job tailoring each workout for my wife and I. He has a deep level of knowledge and coaches us through each movement. His approach is kind which works well for my wife, but is able to push me to exhaustion which I need. Highly recommended.
