Gym: Exercise By DesignTrainer: Paul Schmid
Type of Session: Full Body
I used a home workout for 6 months. I got in decent shape, but I couldn't get to where I really wanted to be. Paul held me accountable and really pushed me to limits I never thought possible. He made the workouts fun, payed really close attention to my form, and kicked my butt! Even on days I didn't want to be in the gym, Paul managed to motivate me.

Gym: Equinox Fitness ClubsTrainer: Diego Dias
Type of Session: Functional training
I have always been an athlete. I run, play tennis, swim, box, etc. to keep my mind and body healthy. I had always thought that at 40 I was in great shape. It was not until a friend recommended a training session with Diego did I realize how much more I could get out of my workouts and just how much I could improve. Within six weeks I saw a complete transformation of the body. I feel tighter and stronger and have an incredible amount of energy. I would encourage anyone who wants to experience an amazing workout to give Diego a try..the proof is in the results!

Type of Session: Power/Speed Training
I am a current student/athlete from NSU in south Florida. My trainer understood my strength and weaknesses with my sport (volleyball), and my 2 teamates that went with me. My verticle leap has increased as well as my stamina. Amazing training experience. He also has no problem with taking training outside when it is nice, and the training experience is just as intense.

Posted by: Sandra Rickert in Upland, CA.Posted: October 27th, 2010 03:10PM
Gym: In Home SessionsTrainer: Cheryce Ward
Type of Session: Personal Training
I have never had a gym membership because I always felt intimated by working out in a crowed area. I did some research in my area in Upland, California. I hope a trainer named Cheryce. It was such a pleasure being able to be trained in the comfort of my own home. Plus I saved on not having a gym membership. I have been working with her for the past few months and I feel great and see a difference in my appearance. I would definitely recommend In home trainings with a trainer near you.

Gym: Rogge S&C (In Extra Innings)Trainer: Ryan Rogge
Type of Session: Weight loss/Toning
Ms.Rogge's gym is in a wonderful indoor hitting facility that was perfect for my two sons and I. I let them hit in the batting cage while I worked out! It was a win win. Although Ryan's background is college level Strenght and Conditioning she knows what she is doing with us old ladies too! I'm two dress sizes smaller, and my sons are hitting better then ever!! My only warning is make sure your ready to work, she doesn't play games.

Type of Session: Weight loss/muscle building
I love having a trainer - I recently just ran out of sessions and just hired my trainer again for 48 more 1 hour sessions (the gym has you sign up for 6month contract payments or 12months - with only 6 months its MORE per session - so this was a no brainer, I will be meeting with her weekly. You are MUCH more likely to accomplish your goals with a trainer.

Kyle was very patient and kind, yet demanding.

I trust his nutrition and training suggestions, especially since he has a master's degree in Exercise Science. He even tailors his program specifically to your needs. Great trainer - would recommend him to anyone looking to get in shape or stay in shape in Philadelphia.

He takes into account any problems I may be having a emphasizes to change them. I had lower back pain for 10 years, and it is gone. He noticed a hitch in my step during lunges, we fixed it, and now the back pain is gone. I do run marathons, and cant wait for the Miami Marathon now. thanks Craig!!! Im a new man!

Posted by: Sara Hutchinson in Palm Beach, FL.Posted: September 6th, 2010 11:09AM
Gym: Trainer's gym Palm BeachTrainer: Bridgett Marx
Type of Session: Pilates / strength
wow, i'm so glad to find this website. Bridgett Marx is a con artist!!! I paid $2160 for 24 personal training / pilates sessions up front. First of all, i should have done some research before hiring her. Bridgett had no knowledge about fitness and her workout were made up as you go. She had no clue in what was best for me. It seemed as if she bought a fitness magazine and tried to copy some of the workouts. I actually watched her improperly train another client (never correcting her poor form) Bridgett was more concerned with talking about her problems and her unhappy life. After a few sessions, a went to Trainer's gym to find the doors locked. I found out Bridgett wasn't paying her bills and they foreclosed on her. I've contacted Bridgett several times to to get a refund but she refuses to. She offered to train me at 180 Fitness in West Palm Beach but i don't want anything to do with her. Bridgett Marx is a cancer!!! STAY FAR AWAY!!!

Serious about your Results
Amount: $25.00 per session
Posted by: Pollyanna in Bowling Green, KY.Posted: June 28th, 2010 01:06PM
Gym: Trainer: Derek Long
Type of Session: strength/cardio/food plan/weight loss
I came to Derek Long a 41 year old, overweight, out of shape mother of three with high cholesterol. I was skeptical because I did not want another quick fix. I wanted a permanent solution; I wanted a hot body from a healthy program I could live with for the rest of my life.
Derek is a compassionate trainer who cares about his clients. He made himself available to me to address my concerns and answered all of my questions. Derek created a menu for me from foods I actually eat, it was easy to follow and I was never hungry.
I had never even stepped foot in a gym much less any clue on how to use the equipment. Derek has an immense knowledge of fitness and exercise. He introduced me to the equipment and guided me through my exercises to insure I had proper form. Derek constantly monitored my progress and adjusted my workout so I would continually receive maximum benefits.
When I began I could not run 1/8 of a mile without stopping. I increased my aerobic endurance and in just 2 months I was able to run my first 5K! Derek’s customized plan has brought my cholesterol levels down to normal range, my doctors are very pleased. I tossed that granny bathing suit too and traded it for a skimpy new bikini!
I would recommend Derek Long to anyone who is serious about changing their body and changing their life. He possesses the knowledge and expertise to help you get the results that you want with a plan that is customized to suit your individual needs. 270-784-3234

Gym: In HomeTrainer: Craig Smalls
Type of Session: Strength/Tone/Cardio
Craig has shown me I've never worked out, focused on nutrition or truly cared for my body in my entire life! He has an astounding knowledgeable base and is always pushing to learn more about ME and MY fitness needs. He initially researches your goals and continues to push to find out the latest/greatest! Our workouts are always new/fresh and challenging and best of all...he holds me accountable. Best investment I've made, care for myself. Great rate for a trainer coming to me in the busy DC metro.
