"I started working out with Russ in the Spring of 2005. I considered myself in fairly good shape for a 51 year old woman, so I was a bit doubtful that I could change my body in any significant way. In the beginning, I approached weight training as a way to mainly 'slow down' the inevitable aging process. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd go from a snug size 8 to a comfortable size 4! Also, never before could I imagine looking for an excuse to show off my arms in a sleeveless anything! Now I can! I feel stronger and stand taller than I ever have in my 52 years. Thanks, Russ, for making a believer out of me!"
Russ is a FANTASTIC trainer! His expertise,
motivational skills, and positive, fun-loving attitude have kept me consistent with my workouts. I've had great physical results, but I think the real upshot is, for the first time in my life, I actually look forward to going to the gym!
I'm 37 and over the years I had gained way too much weight for my frame. As I was trying to make my 'comeback' on my own I hurt myself as my body didn't respond to what I thought I should be doing like it did in my 20's. By the time I got to Russ I was physically not doing too well, such as a hurt lower back and coming off a dislocated shoulder, but also, mentally I was discouraged. Russ sat me down and we had a frank discussion about everything; my diet, habits, injuries and where I wanted to be. We then started slowly with a focus on building core strength and not exacerbating my injuries. Russ, along with being the best trainer I've ever worked with, is truly knowledgeable, motivating and best of all, consistent.
From seeing him 2 days a week to 5 days a week he's always positive and has limitless ideas of how to keep my workout fresh. Even though I was an athlete, I don't think I ever 'really' trained properly before I met Russ. I highly recommend him.
