Kurt is a great motivator, a greater relater and the greatest trainer, with compassion and patience that compels us to go the extra mile. Last year, I was fortunate enough to begin his classes, but only part-time. I am impressed at how he is able to push us to the limit as we moan, groan and threaten to quit with every move. He sets the standard and fosters the spirit of teamwork within us all. I credit his class with empowering me to regain the strength, stamina and endurance in my limbs, weakened as a result of long-term treatment. I look forward to attending class this year in a full-time capacity.

Have been working out at the Piedmont/Fayette Cancer Wellness Center for a year now with Kurt after going through cancer treatment. I started with a slow process with Kurt to build strength in my legs and strength in my arms. His strength training program is excellent for any age group. His cardio bounce program is also an excellent program for all age groups who have been diagnosed with cancer or are currently receiving cancer treatment. Once you have cancer and have received chemo or radiation, the shock to the body of the chemicals weaken the body and through Kurt's programs at the cancer center I along with other members of the exercise group have been able to fight off other illness that normally would probably come our way due to a weakened condition from cancer treatment. Strength, energy, balance, motivation, to live are just a few of the many accomplishments Kurt has been able to help me maintain. Thank you Kurt for all you do for us seniors........

Kurt is ridiculously awesome. He makes me work really hard and push me to my limit every time i step in the gym to work out with him. He's incredibly knowledgeable and easily come up with alternative exercises to accommodate my previous injuries. He's super friendly and approachable and extremely professional. He will make every second of your workout count and at the same time, you will have fun, too! Can't say enough about Kurt!

Kurt is an awesome trainer. He has the unique ability to push you beyond your goals while still being incredibly pleasant to be around. Work outs never fail to be both tough and fun. We have been working out together for about six months and I have never felt stronger. He is both knowledgable and professional and makes going to the gym seem like less of a chore.

Kurt is a deeply knowledgeable and highly personalized trainer. We have worked together for well over a year and what I have learned has made a difference in my fitness level and my understanding of how to work out effectively both on my own and with Kurt.

Check out the certifications Kurt has gained. He's serious about his craft and it shows. He also is great at developing a training curriculum that suits the individual.
The skills I have acquired will be retained throughout my life.

Kurt is a phenomenal trainer! He has just the right balance of experience and expertise with coaching and directing. Kurt has a large inventory of apparatus with which he is able to utilize his creativity, making working out challenging, fun, educational, and beneficial while remaining safe. It is evident Kurt has a wide range of experiences and credentials that allow him to better evaluate and meet the needs of individual clients, recognizing that each person has different needs and desired results. What makes Kurt truly unique is his personality. He gains his energy from those around him and finds joy in encouraging and building others up. This is not just a job for Kurt, but a passion. I would recommend him to ANYONE without hesitation, regardless of age, physical ability, quality of health, or level of motivation!

Kurt is truly amazing! I cannot workout with drill sergeant types of trainers nor someone who is going to let me slack my exercise routine or skip the gym one too many times. That is why I like working out with Kurt! Under his supervision, guidance and mentorship I was able to lose weight and build a better, healthier fit body, and I keep improving myself everyday. He pushes me beyond my limits and I see results not only in my fitness life but it reflects on my personal life, too. I am stronger and more confident than ever thanks to Kurt. He cares so much about his clients. He is like a father, friend and a trainer all in one. I highly recommend working out with Kurt if you are looking for results, great motivation, challenge and help.

Kurt is an amazing trainer and I loved working with him. He genuinely enjoys his job and I believe that he truly, and authentically, enjoys working with people. I think his passion and genuineness is reflected in his style or approach to training sessions. He creates fun and unique routines that never become stale or boring. He will challenge, push, and encourage but he will never yell or berate while attempting to motivate you. Simply, Kurt is incredible and probably the best trainer that I've had the opportunity to work with toward my goals.
