    I am 68 years old, and have recurring back problems -- nothing that needed surgery, but enough to drive me away from running, then from biking, and most recently from golf. I went to Denny with goals of improving overall fitness and getting my golfing life back. He listened carefully and suggested a series of sessions -- three one hour intro sessions, and then 10 thirty minute sessions. I have now been through 6 of those thirty minute sessions. Denny's eye and ear are amazing; he listens and he watches. His judgment about what to work on must be VERY good, because I already feel much stronger through the middle of my body (core, glutes, hips). I can do my 3 mile walk and my 4 mile elliptical machine workout a full minute faster, each of them, without trying harder than before to move fast. Of course I work out on my own on days when I do not see him, and that's a big part of this fast improvement. But he has helped motivate me to do that, because I have seen results so quickly. I will post another review in the spring, when golf season begins!
    For now, I am just very grateful for Denny's skill as a trainer.

    I enrolled in a series of training sessions with Denny in August. I have had recurring neck and shoulder problems for years and have been in and out of physical therapy and exercise classes. Denny immediately determined my problem areas and designed a well rounded program to keep me both in shape and out of pain.
    He is a patient trainer who takes the time to explain (in some cases over and over again!) and pushes you when it is needed.
    I will be a student of his for many years!!
    I highly recommend him.

    I contacted Denny about the Biometrics program. I just finished the program and in 6 weeks I had a 12 lb difference between fat lost and muscle gained. I lost inches, became super strong and started a fitness and nutrition routine that will last because it is simple and doesn't take a lot of time. Denny was a great trainer who explained things and supported my goals. Jennifer

    Arriving home extremely stiff after a lengthy vacation with hip and back soreness i scheduled an introductory session with Denny who was highly recommended by my golfing friends. The introductory session occurred in late February 2014. Denny provided a multi step stretching regimen that i religiously executed at least once a day for several weeks. A noticeable physical improvement became evident about the second week with continuous improvement thereafter. Denny then provided a second increment of exercises that focused on continuous limbering of my muscular structure but also started increasing my strength.

    At this point about two months after I started with Denny there is no doubt his instruction has helped my golf game and my total physical well being.

    I have been training with Denny since mid-summer and am amazed with the results I've seen in such a short time with the increase in strength and balance! Denny customizes each workout to keep them challenging and interesting. He adapts the workout to my abilities and always with a focus on my goals (including weight loss). His expertise in overall health and fiteness and ever-present encouragement have helped me push toward new goals including possibly training for a 5K in the spring. I have never been a runner and with issues with both knees did not think that would ever be possible...until now. Thank you, Denny, for making fitness fun and for the great workouts! Susan Fernandez
