Westchester County, NY for a FREE Fitness Assessment
I just want to let you know what a pleasure it is having Barry as our instructor. He’s friendly and very knowledgeable. He makes you feel comfortable and helps you when you’re unable to do some of the exercises. I certainly would like to have him as our instructor for the next session.
I just want to let you know how much I LOVE these classes! I so look forward to each class, and as of today, have not missed a session. Barry is an incredible instructor; he takes his time to explain and show you each exercise. If it’s a tad too difficult, no problem, he’ll modify. Outside of loving summertime, the outdoors, and water classes, these classes have also proven to be a big plus for me health wise. I had a Total Knee Replacement 10 months ago, and up until June, walked with the aid of a cane. I spent 7 months in Physical Therapy and taking Barry’s classes has accelerated my recovery. My legs have become stronger and I have more endurance. I also have other health issues(need surgery on my shoulder) and Barry always took time to ensure I wasn’t hurting during any routine. All I can say is, where do we go from here?????
Peter & Sybil S.
If anyone could benefit from having a genuinely-brilliant personal fitness trainer come to their home, they should definitely choose GYMGUYZ. GYMGUYZ has been working with both Sybil and I for the past six months. We are invariably impressed with their skills, techniques, innovativeness, and amazing knowledge of anatomy and physiology. Above all, their thoughtfulness and integrity are impressive!*
STEVEN AND JULIE R.
Eleven months ago I was your typical 32 year old father of two; overweight, out of shape, and generally unmotivated to do anything about it. I figured between a two hour daily commute and 12 hour work days, I didn’t have time to work out at all. With a little prodding from my wife I decided to give a personal trainer a shot, but I was skeptical. GYMGUYZ was referred by a friend and they came over to give me my first serious workout in years. Within 2 weeks I began to feel different and look different. At the beginning I was 228 pounds and based on a series of measurements I had the equivalent body of a 68 year old. As of my last weigh, in I was 208 pounds and was I equivalent to a 30 year old. More importantly the workouts have improved how I feel, my energy level is up, and I actually look forward to the sessions now. For someone with a full work schedule, the convenience of having a home trainer who brings all the equipment can not be overstated. GYMGUYZ keeps the sessions fast paced and always incorporates new exercises and equipment. GYMGUYZ has a very positive attitude and gets the best out of his clients. Soon after I began, my wife started to work out with GYMGUYZ and we have since added on couple’s sessions as well. The work outs have now become a very important part of my routine and that is mostly because they keep them fun and challenging at the same time. I recommend GYMGUYZ to anyone who is looking for comprehensive, home based fitness training. You can’t find a better company as far as my wife and I are concerned.*
As a physician, I am constantly instructing my patients on the importance of proper diet and exercise. The only problem was that I did not practice what I professed until I met GYMGUYZ. Under GYMGUYZ watchful eye and through GYMGUYZ patient but powerful workouts, I can now look my patients in the eye and tell them that hard work does pay off. Thank you GYMGUYZ! I could not have done this without you.*
I was going to the local sports club three times a week for the past four years, and dreading every minute. I was going through the motions of exercise without seeing or feeling positive results. Ready to throw in the towel, I called GYMGUYZ as a last resort. It was the best phone call I have ever made. GYMGUYZ has been my coach for the past year and I can honestly say that I look forward to our daily workouts. Even though some days I think I cannot possibly do any more pushups or abdominal crunches, GYMGUYZ motivates and inspires me. GYMGUYZ belief in me has never wavered, and thanks to GYMGUYZ a new me has emerged. Thank you GYMGUYZ for changing my life.*
