I have been working with Brandon for about nine weeks. I have worked with trainers before and I'm very happy with Brandon. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable about fitness, he pays great attention to my specific needs and ensures I'm getting the most out of each and every workout. I've learned a great deal from him and I am very happy to recommend him to anyone that wants a trainer that will lead you to positive results.

"My experience training with Brandon has gained me the ability to jog. That may sound ridiculous to some but it wasn't something that I have always been able to do. I've always struggled with aerobic-style exercise and, as I've gotten older, I've developed allergies and asthma. Shortly after Brandon started working with me, at a very gentle pace, he took me up to 3 miles without stopping once. Now, 2 years later, I jog at least twice a week.

I've also learned a lot about diet and how it contributes to the effectiveness or failure of your fitness program. Previous to his instruction, I had been avoiding certain foods, namely carbs, under the misconception that they were fattening. I was also over-loading on protein. He set me up with a diet based on my fitness goals and activity level.

Besides fitness, his guidance has helped me in other areas of my life as well. Beginning last year, he introduced me to meditation. Previous to that, I had been medicated (since 1988) for anxiety and depression. At times, I wasn't even able to leave my home without an emotional meltdown. Since I first started meditating, at Brandon's recommendation, I have progressed from academic probation to a "B" gradepoint average even though specialists told me that part of my brain was underdeveloped.

Even though Brandon trained me 2 years ago, he still continues to be a source of encouragement and instruction at no profit to himself because he is committed to the positive welfare of others.

I haven't been on prescription antidepressants in two years and I get out of the house every day now with no symptoms of anxiety. I'm beyond grateful for Brandon's encouragement and guidance in helping me develop into a healthier individual, mentally and physically." Tammy E.

"My son is not the typical client for a personal trainer. He is recovering from a severe stroke, and only recently have the doctors begun suggesting that he might be capable of walking again.

We contacted Level Up Fitness and Wellness after returning from a month of physical training at Project Walk in Carlsbad CA. Brandon Ballentine did an initial evaluation and has been working with Zac for several months.

Zac's injury includes limiting his memory and causing him to be highly distractable. He is physically nine years old, but his maturity lags that by at least three years. Because of those and other issues, working with him presents some unusual challenges.

We have tried a number of local physical therapy providers and personal trainers over the years, and I was not optimistic about finding someone able to deal with our situation consistently

Brandon reviewed all the materials we brought back from Project Walk and has done an excellent job of tailoring an ongoing program targeting the areas that Zac needs to progress in in order to be a viable walker. He also has been remarkably patient and innovative while keeping Zac on track and motivated.

We are continuing with Zac's training sessions, and have seen improvement in both strength and flexibility. Zac looks forward to his training sessions and I am thrilled with his progress." ~ Linda, Zac's mom
