In-home personal training and fitness is very important to Phil, as many years of extensive business travel took its toll on his body.

He lost nearly 60 lbs. and 6 inches on his waist line. In other words, he believes in the product because he has benefited from it for over 5 years. Phil loves to create meaningful relationships with GYMGUYZ clients, using his past experience to help guide others in their personal transformations.
