    After dealing with tendonitis in my foot for more than two years despite diligently doing my physical therapy, I was beginning to despair that I would ever be able to run again. I contacted Guy in the hopes that working with a trainer might help me get back on the road. We only met for six sessions (over a two-month period), but by the end of it, I was able to run/walk a 5K--far better results than I had hoped for! Guy encouraged me to focus on core strength in addition to the leg strength/balance exercises I'd been doing for my foot, and I was pleasantly surprised at how much that helped. He was very good about checking in with me to see how my foot was doing during and after each session, and how I was doing with my solo workouts the rest of the week. That accountability, coupled with the gradual progress I saw week by week, really helped me stay motivated to stick with the plan. And I'm so glad I did! Guy was also great with my infant son, whom I had to bring with me to most of my sessions.

    Training with Guy has been my gift to myself, and I have have been working with him for over three years. I am a baby boomer who never had gym in school, so working out as part of being healthy, let alone knowing all that that entailed, was not something that has been easy for me. Over the years, I had a few gym memberships, but eventually I'd lose interest and quit. With Guy, I get the whole package. We work on flexibility, strength, my core (always my core,) nutrition, even dealing with stress. Now I'm a grandmother and I'm able to keep up with my 14 month old granddaughter. I continue to learn so much, I'm fit, and I function better in my everyday life, which is my main reason for training. Hey, even my clothes look better! We have fun and laugh a lot, which is important to me, especially since fitness does not come naturally to me. Guy is a wonderful professional, comfortable and easy to have in my home twice a week. He's the best!

    I received two sessions with Guy as a birthday gift from my sister. I am an active mom with zero free time. Our sessions were focused, professional, challenging and a lot of fun. Guy went out of his way (literally) with personalized workouts he conducted with me in the comfort of my own back yard! Despite only having spent two hours with him, I have learned new exercises to vary my routine, tips on maintaining proper form, breathing techniques and the confidence to push myself through those final reps! I highly recommend Guy to anyone who is looking for a personalized setting and unique ways to change up their workouts!

    I have been training with Guy for over seven years. As a person with a physical disability, I was nervous about finding a trainer that would be willing to work with me and my differences. Guy jumped onboard without hesitation. He asked thoughtful questions on how to build the best routine and what he did not know, researched and developed an evolving workout that still changes seven plus years in.

    On top of Guy’s expertise in the fitness world; he is a kind, gentle, caring person who always puts a smile on his face all while loving what he does.

    I have been training with Guy for 5 months, in five months I have lost 36lbs and almost 5 inches off my waistline! Guy is so much more than just a trainer, he has a zest for life and living well that is infectious, he is never judgmental and never not encouraging. Guy has been key in learning how to eat healthy (and delicious) and getting me on an exercise program that works wonders and is always new, fun and challenging. We meet twice a week and it has transformed me into a healthier and more energized person! I’m ready to lose the remaining 25ibs to get to my goal weight.
    Thanks Guy!
