    I love the personal attention that Craig provides me whether it be with performing the exercises with proper form and technique or with sports such as basketball concentrating on the basics of the sports with various drills. I have been working with Craig for nearly 10 years, and while he has his own way of challenging a client while meeting their desired goals, he also makes it very fun and for the client wanting to come back for more. His HITT classes are amazing and is by far one of the group classes that everyone raves about. Not only does Craig provide the proper training and exercise regiments, he is extremely knowledgeable about nutrition. Working with Craig for over 10 years, I not only lost over 50 lbs, but also have been able to maintain the weight loss. In addition, I feel much stronger and healthier than I ever did in my adulthood. Craig is an excellent trainer!!!

    I am 69 years old and have been working with my trainer, Craig, for nine years now. At age 60 I couldn't do even one sit up and had little upper body strength. Now I can do sit ups, planks, and have nice muscle tone in my arms. I feel younger and in better shape every year. I have never enjoyed the gym before, and Craig is the main reason I have stayed consistent with my training. He always tailors the session to how I am feeling and what I need - sometimes we just do stretching if my back is hurting. Other times he will push me to add more weight to what I am doing. He really pays attention to his client's needs and goals. Craig works with all ages at my gym and kids up to seniors really like him. Sometimes I really don't feel like working out. But I always look forward to seeing Craig. And I always leave the gym feeling better than when I came. Without Craig motivating me, I know I would never have stuck with this training, and I credit him with helping me to stay in shape and in good health as I age.

    Craig is patient and flexible with scheduling. Craig listens to and addresses any concerns that I have in relation to being healthy. Craig never shames or degrades he remains positive and up lifting. I highly recommend Genesis Fitness One for one’s physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
