    I highly recommend Sheldon as a personal trainer. As someone who has long been the "I hate working out" type I knew that hiring Sheldon was going to be something of a challenge for me, but that was partly why I did it. He was so helpful. Knowing my dislike for working out he made it fun and challenging. On those days when I had zero motivation he somehow made me find it. He just has this calm understanding way about him that makes you want to push yourself more. He was always patient and understanding. I always was asking him questions and he always had the answer.
    I have never felt stronger or healthier. I figured once I stopped training with Sheldon I would probably go back to my old ways. Well I haven't! That is how I know Sheldon is great at what he does.

    If you're looking for a personal trainer, I highly recommend Sheldon. My husband and I started with Sheldon via a wedding DJ/personal trainer deal and we couldn't be happier with the results! Sheldon is inspiring, patient, motivating and filled with a plethora of information. Don't be afraid to ask questions, he's got answers. The results we've seen are amazing. He's changed our lives significantly. I've never been successful at making healthy changes and sticking with them and losing weight has always been hard for me. What a gift he's given us. A healthier life! Thank you, Sheldon! ~Michelle (and Jeff)
