Impressed already!

I met Garrett through a few friends' recommendations. Yesterday was my first boot camp introduction and I was impressed by his information and demeanor before we even kicked our 'booties' in to gear.

This morning, it took me twice as long to go down our stairs in our two-story home due to the 'good workout hurt' from yesterday and I'm Loving it! I've been wanting to meet with a personal trainer for a couple of years, but just never found the right individual, until now. I'm at that point in my life that all the working out I've been doing for years, just doesn't have the affect I want it to be, and I truly think Garrett will be the one to kick that all in to gear. Happy!

I cannot recommend Garrett highly enough. I came to him by recommendation of my chiropractor. I am a professional pianist and will spend hours a day practicing and rehearsing as well as performing, but it comes at a physical cost. Garrett has been doing site-specific training with me to strengthen my shoulders and back so that I can maintain a long day of practicing and rehearsing without pain. The fruit of his work with me has been more than I ever dreamed of, giving me endurance and strength while playing (not only in my back and shoulders but also in my hands and arms - an unexpected bonus), thus meaning I have the freedom and ability to continue working and doing what I love. That is a gift. He knows how to coach you through both the physical and mental aspects of the training. The depth of his knowledge of health and fitness continues to amaze and impress me as does his skill at structuring and building work-outs, both group and individual. He calls his training business Balance Fit. It is exceedingly well-named. If you are looking to build stamina for your work, lose weight, develop a better understanding of nutrition, or just for a terrific work-out, look no further than Garrett. It has been a privilege being trained by him.

Garrett makes each class different, challenging and fun! He is incredibly knowledgable in all aspects of his job and is a great motivator. I'm so glad a friend got me connected with Garrett's boot camp class.

Garrett is my Lead Trainer for my 8 Weeks To Wellness Program at Hruby Chiropractic Wellness in Greenfield. He put me through the program and mirrored my personality to keep me both focused and motivated for 2 H.I.I.T. (High Intensity Interval Trainings) twice per week for 8 weeks. Garrett has a wonderful ability keep you inspired and motivated throughout the hour workout. He has done amazing transformations with my patients as he helped them believe in themselves. I am grateful he is part of the wellness movement! Thanks Garrett! Dr. Rick Hruby

Garrett has helped change my life. After a yearly exam by my physician last October; finding out that my cholesterol was high and heading towards pre-diabetic blood sugar levels, I knew I had to get serious about getting healthy. After meeting with Garrett, I knew he was the person that was going to change my way of thinking. He is so inspiring, never judging, and knows just what to do and say to keep me motivated. After 4 months of working with him, my cholesterol dropped in to a healthy range, and I had lost 25 pounds. I feel so much healthier! He has gotten me on a great routine, and I still train with him. I actually look forward to our sessions!

*MUST READ*
I met Garrett in 2009 when Self Magazine provided me with a personal trainer while writing an article on my weight loss. After working with him for only a short time (less than a year) he helped me to lose over 50 lbs. I toned up my body so much so that for the first time in 30 years, I could actually wear a bikini & look good in it! These have been the best days of my life working with Garrett. He is a constant source of inspiration & confidence! In 2011 I was given a very shocking diagnosis of renal failure. I was taking 18 medications a day. When I felt all was lost, Garrett took me under his wing & led me to the education I never knew about. After watching a documentary & making the life changes he recommended, two months ago I got a clean bill of health! I am off all but 1 medication now! I owe this man everything! He helped me lose weight & get healthy! What more can one person do in such a caring way to change a persons' life?

I have worked with Garrett Stangel several times in the last few years. Garrett is an incredible support system and motivator for anyone looking to gain physical fitness and "life" fitness. He has a vast knowledge base to help you through your challenges, and is able to guide you to the best solution for you. He caters his services to meet your needs and finds ways to help you focus and understand that stresses happen daily. And it's not what stresses your going through...it's how you handle "life" (hence the "life" fitness). Garrett helps you find that balance in life and helps you realize that you are worth it, which is one of the first healing steps towards overall mind and body fitness and health. I highly recommend working with Garrett to reach your goals.
