Brian was my trainer. He was technically sound, motivated and helped me boost my strength, fitness and energy levels. I hated to see him go after my company moved to a new location and we took on a new fitness contractor. I would highly recommend him.
Brian was my personal trainer for over a year. He was always prompt and professional. The workout plan he developed for me was personal and helped me to become stronger and more fit. I highly recommend him for a similar role.
After training with Brian for over a year I have seen a complete transformation in my physique. The results have been amazing! I have lost over 20 pounds, but more importantly I have gained a newfound confidence! Brian goes above and beyond for his clients. Reviewing and recording workouts, taking into consideration previous injuries and building workouts to meet individual fitness goals can be attributed to my own success. His positive attitude and professionalism has motivated me to live a more health-conscious lifestyle. Taking the extra step to implement a personal trainer into my own fitness routines truly elevated my workouts and provided me a program that I intend to continue long into the future. If you want to get fit, learn about proper nutrition, and experience engaging and customized workouts, then Brian would be a perfect trainer for you!
