Harris Sophocleous

Dallas, TX 75234

Growing up in Athens, Greece, I was a competitive swimmer for 12 years. I have over 20 years of experience as a personal trainer and fitness instructor. I am a fitness advisor for police units (SWAT), I am Battling Ropes Certified, and I provide swimming instruction as well. As a fitness expert, I have trained clients from novices to experienced athletes, and have trained clients from age 5 to 85. I enjoy challenging clients to reach beyond their perceived limits so they can reach new levels of fitness of body and mind. I help clients learn how to use their surrounding environments to obtain the best workouts possible.

    I started working out with Harris in May 2013 and I can fully hearted recommend him! I am based in Europe and did my training via Skype. Harris is extremely reliable and very flexible with the workouts hours. We also did training on the weekends.
    His workouts are fun and challenging at the same time! Within short time I faced great improvements in my all over fitness and heath. I am currently running more than 16 miles a week without any problems!

    Harris ran a women's Boot Camp program for almost 4 years on the Chicago North Shore. I can honestly say he was a true professional and an expert at fitness training. He pushed the women to the best physical shape of their lives while doing it in a positive and safe manner. He constantly kept the workouts fresh and challenging. Harris is not only an expert in the field of fitness, but a man of character who always showed up when he said he would and always did what he promised to do. Certainly one of the best trainers you will ever work with.

    Harris was my personal trainer for 1 year in Chicago. Without any doubt I can highly recommend him. He managed, within less than 6 months, to take me from subzero fit-level to a very good performance (including much better looks) that positively affected both my professional and personal life. Harris knows his profession inside-out and is a great instructor bringing in the results and life energy you desire. It was my best USD investment. Needless to say that he is a fun-to train with personality by keeping absolute high level of professionalism. Therefore after my return to Europe I continued working out his Harris via Skype.
