Jason Trammell is a very good personal trainer. I am 59 years old and have Spastic/Dystonic Cerebral Palsy. When I went on Thumbtack to find a trainer (I did say I had Cerebral Palsy), Jason was the only one to reply. Most personal trainers would not know how to work with me, but Jason stepped up to the challenge. I have been work with Jason for over 6 months. Once I talked with him about how my disability affected my muscle movements and balance, he figured out the best way in which to work with me. That said, He doesn’t treat me with “kid gloves”, instead he pushes me to my limit and sometimes beyond. When I feel like can’t do something, he gets me to try and usually he is right. This technique helps by reducing my limits and building my strength. I do need to say that I always feel safe that I will not fall or get hurt, because Jason is always close by to make sure that doesn’t happen! Most people hire trainers for weight loss. I was 10 pounds underweight. Jason made up a food schedule for me and is constantly bugging me about eating more, now I’m only 5 pounds underweight. Strength training is so very important for people, especially woman, over 45 whether or not you have a disability. Working out with Jason will keep me from needing to use a wheelchair or scooter for many years to come, as well as keep me independent in my own home and doing all the regular things everyone else can do. Finally, Jason’s prices are very reasonable. if you look up the cost of joining a gym and having a personal trainer 3-times a week, you will probably be paying twice as much! Plus he comes to your home so you don’t have to go out in the cold and rain in the winter. Anne-Marie Hughey 913-745-6540 (Voice) amhughey2013@hotmail.com

I was looking for a personal trainer that would show up on my doorstep whether I liked it or not. When I told my husband that I contacted Jason through Thumbtack, he decided that he also wanted to work out and we made it a couples session. We had 70 sessions with Jason scheduled at 6:00 on Mondays and 7:00 am on Saturdays for about a year. We live in east Multnomah County so it was a drive for Jason. I don't remember him ever being late and, in fact, was most often waiting in front of the house 10 minutes early. I am definitely not a morning person, but this did not scare Jason away. Although my husband was in better shape than I was, Jason was able to tailor our own workouts to make them challenging and effective. I have become stronger and more active. We plan to resume our sessions in the Fall.

I have hired Jason as my personal trainer. I feel his is a master in his field. He will push you but he is always aware when enough is enough. He always has your welfare in mind. I am feeling the results. If you are looking for a trainer, I would really suggest hiring Jason.

Twelve weeks prior to walking into Superior Physique, I had changed my eating habits, started a reputable workout program at home, 5-6 days a week, with absolutely no progress to show for it. I take that back, my pants had actually began to fit me tighter than before I had started the program. Confused, frustrated and determined, I needed a change. I found Turk through Thumbtack.com. Like you, I read the reviews and took a chance. What will a consultation hurt, right? It’s just a chat. Turk was professional, knowledgeable and very articulate. He took time to get to know my history, my goals and areas of opportunity. He takes something that can be scientifically complex (down right confusing), and breaks it down in easy to understand ways. I quickly learned why I wasn’t seeing results and what I needed to do in order to change. My nutrition was out of balance, I was under eating and I needed to add in strength training. The first week, I thought, “Oh my goodness, I have no idea what I am doing- this is a whole new world for me. I am not in Kansas anymore.” I went to two sessions that week, a nervous wreck, a little nauseated, and had no idea what to expect. I cannot remember if I walked in with a terrified look or not but Turk quickly made me feel at ease. First, we went over nutrition in detail and then onto the floor. Turk explained and demonstrated the exercises, showing what muscle groups were being triggered and what the proper form of each exercise looked and felt like (He is fantastic at educating you). The hour flew by and I didn’t die! I found myself wanting more. Seventeen weeks into my journey, Turk has far exceeded my expectations. I can honestly say working out with Turk has become my favorite part of the week. I look back in amazement of how much I have progressed over the weeks. I am thrilled with my results and love watching how my body transforms from week to week. I have gone from 27% body fat down to 21%, and gained 4lbs of muscle. With Turk as my partner in crime, there is no doubt that we will achieve my goals. Not only is Turk extremely knowledgeable and efficient, he is a positive and motivating guy that pushes you to your limits. The limits you had no idea were even there. He has opened my eyes to a world I have never considered before and I love every minute of my new journey. If you are anything like me cardio is easy and comfortable. Easy and comfortable doesn’t always get you the results that you want or need. If it terrifies you, it transforms you. To me this was strength training and personal trainers. I took the leap of faith and taking a chance with Turk has been the absolute, best thing I have done for myself and for my health. Thanks to Turk, I am no longer terrified, I am transforming! I cannot say enough positive things about Turk Fickling – A truly phenomenal guy that knows fitness! I have the upmost respect for Turk and highly recommend him to anyone who wants to make a positive change in his or her life!

I first saw Turk one day after I arrived in the United States while training with my first personal trainer. I remember him with his client taking a moment to walk up to someone on a deadlift machine and telling him “your strongest when your knees are above your feet”. That was the end of our encounter till 2 months ago when I decided that I wanted to do something this year that I have never done before, my first Physique Competition. I wrote to Turk and we met for consultation. He took the time to sit me down and explain macros, kinds of foods, timings of macros, body’s hormonal states and supplementation. The next day we started training and I must say I have never met a trainer who would not only train you but also explain the reason behind everything. He pushes my limits every day with every rep and every set and encourages me to give more. He knows the psyche of his clients and knows how to push their buttons to get the most output from them. Progress: In less than 1 month he successfully dropped my body fat from 15% to 12%. During this month I lost 5lbs of fat and gained 2lbs of muscle. I did my second body fat test yesterday after another month and I currently stand at 9% body fat which is incredible progress. In 60 days I lost 6% body fat (10lbs of fat) and I have grown stronger and look better than I have ever looked in my life. In a nutshell, Turk is a very knowledgeable person and is an inspiration to me. He truly cares and makes your goals his goals. He has attention to detail like I have never seen before. He can look at me and know in seconds that I have cheated a day before. He owns your progress and makes tweaks along the way to ensure you meet your fitness goals. I will continue to train with him till such time that I need to head back to India. I also strongly recommend that you reach out to him and let him help you become a better version of yourself today. Thanks Turk.

Make no doubt about it, Turk is hands down the best personal trainer you'll find. Most personal trainers these days have no knowledge whatsoever about what they're talking about. On top of it half the trainers I see sit around texting on their phone while they're supposed to be training you. Turk is the opposite! Turk is in your face and motivating you like a trainer should be. His training principals have roots with the best of the best (i.e. Dorian Yates) and will give you a workout you won't soon forget. I honestly can't say enough good things about Turk. One thing I can say for sure is that if I was a millionaire I would literally hire Turk as my full time trainer and give him a million a year just to follow me around wherever I went and train me, he's THAT good! Whether your goal is weight loss, competing, contest prep, or you just need someone to give you a good meal plan, Turk is THE MAN! Also, females need not be intimidated, Turk has trained some of the best female figure competitors out there so he knows what he is doing. Give Turk a shot! I promise you that just ONE training session with Turk will convince you that he is a cut above any other trainer out there. What are you waiting for!?

Reasonable pricing for exemptonal amount of support, knoledge and hands on training. I've had personal trainers before but never this supportive and able to work with my schedule. The eating program is easy to follow. It allows for ample system support while providing an abundance of energy, productive and healthy weigh loss.

Brandon is an absolutely amazing personal trainer. I was completely new to training when I first started with him, and even one year later he still he kicked my butt every time. I had never been leaner, healthier, stronger, or more educated on personal fitness until I worked with him. Though life tends to happen and I can’t maintain personal training all the time, Brandon has made a client for life. He knows what he’s doing and how to get results; he’ll pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses, develop personal goals for you, and teach you so much along the way. He keeps you motivated while still being impressively friendly and easy to talk to, so sessions tend to fly by and you’re exhausted before you know it! I will always come back to him for my training needs, and I recommend him 100% to guide anyone through their health journey.

Brandon is an excellent listener, and is remarkable in the way he will adapt your workout to your specific needs. In addition to being very knowledgeable about the body and exercise strategies, he also is constantly researching the literature to discover new solutions to old problems. On top of all that, Brandon is consistently positive and flexible with scheduling changes. Couldn’t ask for more in a personal trainer.

Lisa is a wonderful and inspiring trainer! She is an expert in her field, and I’m very pleased with her services and her guidance. I wish I found her sooner! I’ve been working with Lisa for 1 month, and I am already down 11 pounds so far!! I plan on doing 20 more sessions with her and will keep going until I reach my goals. I know that, with Lisa, it’s possible. Lisa has a special way of making the workouts fun so there’s never a dull moment. Not only does she have a deep understanding of the body and fitness, I feel that she really cares about me as a person and about my health. And the fact that she trains me in my own gym makes it even more convenient; no excuses! If you’re looking for the best trainer and you want someone who will listen to what YOU want, Lisa is your person. I feel very fortunate to have found her. I am finally on the right road to my best body and health. Thank you big time, Lisa!

I hired Lisa for a ten-session personal training package in my home, to kick-start my fitness journey after an extended illness. My experience with her has been wonderful. Lisa shows up on time and gets right to the warmup and work out. I set up some personal parameters that I wanted to work within, and she has designed our sessions within those. She is friendly, encouraging, and makes the workouts fun. She watches for form to prevent injury and gives tips on what to be cautious of to stay safe in different moves. We have integrated some yoga moves and even a bit of meditation at my request. I will be sorry to have our sessions end. Great job, Lisa!! Thank you for getting me on my way!

Lisa was awesome! I purchased several sessions with her as a gift for my parents for Christmas and they have been so happy with her as a trainer. She has made them feel very comfortable, listened to what they were wanting out of their sessions, and really helped them get back on track with their exercise. Her knowledge in different kinds of strength training, exercise, and stretching has been perfect for them and the convenience of her coming to their house has made all the difference. I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone looking to get back in shape, become more flexible, and have a great time while doing so!

Taylor has been absolutely amazing since day one. When I began to look into personal training, I was a little nervous. I was worried about everything from hiring a horrible trainer who yelled at me or was uninterested to not having enough money to really commit to it. Taylor quickly calmed all of those fears. When I met for our free consult she was straight forward and professional while still being very personable. I took the leap and went for it and I have been SO happy with my results. Not only does Taylor completely know what she's doing, but she charges a very reasonable price and is always available to answer any questions I have at any time of the day. Shes fun and encourages me to live the best lifestyle I can. I promise if you hire her, you will not regret it.

I started working with Scott nearly one year ago. I wanted to work on my core strength because I was scheduled to do a 15 mile Power Walk in London and I wanted to avoid backaches and shin splints. I found my training leading up to the walk to be very helpful. When I returned from London, I decided to continue training with Scott because it had already made a big difference in my physical and overall health and well-being. Scott is great to work with and keeps things fun but challenging. I'm not a spring chicken and this program continues to serve me well. We decide together on skills and areas of focus. It seemed indulgent to have a personal trainer, but it is worth every bit of investment in myself. I now view it as an essential service to maintaining my health for the long run.

I was nervous about going to a personal trainer, because I am definitely not the athletic type. Scott put me immediately at ease. It helps that he's older like me and understands the needs of my body. I love the variety of exercises that we do and the care he puts into finding movements that work my body without hurting my joints. I've been going for a month and I already feel stronger and more capable.

I sought out personal training on the recommendation of my physical therapist. The goal was to continue strengthening exercises to improve the condition of my injured ankle and problematic knees. I have to admit, I was terrified to start working with a personal trainer... I was obese, out of shape, and feared that I would be judged. Then I stumbled across Corey at Thrive Body Balance and realized I had nothing to fear. He was very welcoming and willing to work with me unconditionally and without judgment. I've been working out with Corey weekly for nearly 6 months now. I feel so much stronger, and that has helped me both physically and in terms of my confidence. I also feel like I'm taking great strides towards lifelong health, as Corey works with me on "corrective" exercises to improve the alignment and balance of my body. I would most definitely recommend Corey to anyone and everyone. He is extremely knowledgeable, understanding, flexible, patient, wise, and truly just a joy to spend time with. After all this time, I still look forward to my weekly personal training sessions. They have been worth every penny, and I feel very lucky to have found a trainer like Corey.

I had been dealing with pain and declining health problems for years and had the lucky opportunity to meet Corey Walden and start personal training with him as part of a push to really turn my whole health situation around. With just his personal training alone I was able to break my dependence on weekly massages that I had been getting just to be able to move. With the addition of Neurokinetic Therapy we've really found the sources of my pain and mobility problems, and I'm feeling better and moving better every week! Corey Walden is a crucial part of improving my health and wellness; Corey is very knowledgeable and very easy and fun to work with. I would gladly recommend him to anyone who wants to feel better, move better, and be in better health!

I have worked with Corey for the past three months. I originally sought him out for fitness and weight loss but with the initial diagnostic tests discovered several postural issues that needed correction. I am seeing some big changes that have also been noticed by others. I am impressed with Corey's professionalism and the trainer's gym we work out in is well equipped and never crowded. Additionally, what stands out to me is the non-judgmental attitude of all the trainers and very "non-jock" atmosphere of the gym. I highly recommend Corey if you are looking for consistency and growth.

Charles is far more knowledgeable than I ever expected from a "trainer." He knows exactly how to correct little posture or movements to affect the correct muscles that need to be "exercised." In particular, he has worked on my neck, shoulder area, along with various core areas that have resulted in improve movement and strength. More importantly, he is watchful and attentive to all my movements (never leaves my side during my hour long workouts) to answer texts, phones, etc. I enjoy is occasional hands-on to show me which muscles I need to pay attention to while using the various equipment and stretching motions.

So I have worked with 3 personal trainers all right after each other. Out of all 3 I felt 2 were knowledgeable about what workouts were good and would be most effective for my body. Jaylen Eason was one of those 2. However, the one thing that put him at the top of those three, was his professionalism. Smooth way of telling me what I need to eat to help the workouts and weight loss and muscle gain. He always had workouts prepared before my scheduled time. He knew what we were going to do before I arrived so it gave me every minute of my paid time to focus on the workout and not the planning. When we worked out he focused on form to ensure injury reduction and getting the most out of each workout. During my workouts he would push me with encouraging words and not be off doing something else or watching or talking to someone else in the gym like some trainers do. He was 100%focused on me, his client. When finished, he would give friendly reminders of what my homework was and parted with a smile and encouraging feedback. I left due to an injury on the job and have not been able to train since otherwise he would be the guy! Jeremy

I came to Jaylen overweight and experiencing knee pain from an old high school volleyball injury. We trained for roughly six months together. At the end of the six months, I had lost 40 pounds. Jaylen is an excellent teacher and a great motivator. There were times when I felt like giving up, but he just wouldn’t quit on me. Most importantly, he created a lifestyle change within me. One that didn’t just center on health and fitness of the body, but that also cultivated a better mindset and a healthier outlook on life. I highly recommend using Jaylen as your personal trainer. It can change your life.

I worked so hard to get in shape for my wedding and could not have done it without the help and support getBRITfit. I was initially hesitant to start lifting weights because as a female, I was afraid of bulking up but that is not the case at all. I am now toned, have definition, and have slimmed down. I was also having a lot of digestive issues and saw medical specialists without having any luck. getBRITfit helped me change my diet, set up a realistic eating plan, get me on track with nutrition and solved the issues I was having. I look and feel fantastic! I was able to lose 30 pounds and keep it off! I especially love all of the compliments I have been getting and felt beautiful in my wedding dress and swimsuit. Your dedication, patience, and commitment was extremely helpful. Scheduling appointments is easy and flexible and the studio is a nice size for one on one sessions. Whether you want to lose weight, tone up, live healthier, or just feel better, I highly recommend working with getBRITfit!

Amy was the first personal trainer I worked with in almost 20 years. I was looking for help to strengthen my core as well as overall muscle since, at 50, I had lost strength all over and didn't want to rely on one kind of routine. I've been a runner for years and the wear and tear on my knees and lower back haven't helped. Amy started me with simple stretches and core work that I could do at home as well. Weights increase slowly; I never left a training feeling too worn down, but rather energized. I eventually got stronger and more confident in doing things like pushups (which I always sucked at!). The best thing was the work I did with Amy helped heal a longtime ache I had in my leg since having my daughter 10 years ago. Amy is super cheerful, focused and full of conversation; every time I work with her, I leave thinking "time goes by so fast with her! I just worked out for an hour and didn't even feel like it was that long!" Highly recommend Amy!

Hiring a personal trainer can be intimidating. Hiring a personal trainer when you're a large, out of shape, middle aged woman can be down right nerve wracking. I was fortunate to find James a couple years ago after deciding I'd had enough of feeling weak and off balance. Trusting him with my fitness was the best decision I've made in a long time. He is patient. He knows his stuff and all he ever wants is for me to do my best and improve. I've been to trainers who tried to sell me supplements or tried to put me on diets to lose weight. They never asked me what *I* wanted. That was the first thing James asked me. He's the best.

I have been training with James for 3 years. Not only have I made great progress in my training, I have also learned a great deal about exercise and mobility. I highly recommend Primal Fitness to anyone wanting to make a change in their performance and overall health.
