In preparation for celebrating my 34th birthday I decided to get focused and start working with a trainer again. I had 5 weeks to make it happen and I knew with help I could do it! I signed up with David Sutton to train twice a week, total of 10 sessions.

Now some of my friends would ask me "Why do you need a trainer? You know what to do." My answer was easy: Even for someone who works in the fitness industry having a personal trainer takes you to a whole other level. The accountability, knowing that I have someone to answer to each week, tracking my progress, working to help achieve my goals and offering support and motivation the entire time.

David Sutton was amazing in all aspects. Knowledgeable, fun, prepared and truly motivating!

At the end of our 5 week birthday burnout I definitely achieved my goal. Slimmed Inches all-around, dropped a couple pounds and lost 2 % body fat. I felt strong, lean and sexy for my birthday celebrations. I went shopping for an outfit, of course, and trying on clothes was so enjoyable, everything looked and felt great on my body. I was even so happy with my results I booked a birthday photo-shoot.

For anyone debating if they should invest the time and money into working with a trainer I highly recommend David Sutton, It's worth it and you won't be disappointed.

If you are serious about working out than this is the gym for you. The gym has quality machines and weight training areas that are all kept up very well. If you are looking for a trainer than I highly recommend Natalie DiTerlizzi. I started working out with Natalie in October 2014. I sought out Natalie to help me loose the weight I gained during my pregnancy. During our first session (which was free) we had an in depth discussion about my goals and what types of workouts keep me engaged and get results quickly. She has created a program that has succeeded in both aspects!!! In three months time I have seen significant weight loss as well as inches. In fact I am in better shape now than before I was pregnant. She is knowledgeable about nutrition and what changes needed to be made to hit my goals. During our session she is always prepared and has my whole months worth of my workout program planned in advance. Natalie also emails me my workout plan promptly after going through it so I can follow it between sessions and checks in with me between sessions to see how i am doing. She also shares various fitness articles with me that she thinks I will find interesting. I have had a handful of trainers over the years and she has by far been the best and gotten the best results. I can't say enough great things about her!! So if you are finding yourself in need of a little butt kicking to help you get in gear and on your way to your fitness goals than please please please get Natalie on your team. You won't be disappointed!!

"I began training with Kyle Farley in July of 2014 a month before my cousin’s wedding. Right away I noticed that I became stronger, happier and saw an overall increase in my energy. By always changing up our sessions, his training style continues to keep me wondering what’s next. The combination of my results and the high fives Kyle rewards me with after completing each challenging set has definitely led to an increase of my overall happiness. Thanks to Kyle’s help I now feel fit, skinny and happy. I highly recommend training with Kyle to all of my friends."

One year ago I walked into Fit Athletic totally out­ of ­shape, lacking motivation or energy and with pathetic noodle arms (I think I was able to manage five push­ups and one questionable pull up). Life had dealt me several heavy blows leaving me pretty much broken, physically and mentally. I’ll never forget that first day training with Kyle Farley. I thought, “This guy is trying to kill me. What a jerk!” He introduced me to a burpee and I thought for sure he was making it up. I remember walking home not knowing if my legs were actually moving forward or at all, and thinking to myself "no chance am I going back!” But Kyle encouraged me to come back, and for some reason I trusted in him. And so it began! Only one year later... I am happier, healthier, stronger, more determined and confident than I’ve ever been in my life. And a lot of this I owe to Kyle.

Now I willingly get up at 4:45am every morning to go to the gym and bust it out like a beast. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done, and I’m so proud of myself! I'm so thankful to have found this thing in my life that brings me so much happiness. I’ve learned so much about myself and know that today, I possess the strength and determination to take on any of life’s challenges. To Kyle and all of my Fit friends and family, I sincerely say THANK YOU for saving me and changing my life. You’ll never know how much it means to me.

I walked into Fit Athletic Club at 250 pounds and knew two things: 1) I was very overweight and 2) I didn't want to be. I started working with Natalie, who put me through "fitness rehab." It was simple: Work out how she tells me to work out, eat how she tells me to eat, and always be 100% honest with her about where I fall short (my big issues are strange working hours and a love for scotch and pizza). Thanks to Natalie I lost 52 pounds! She is very knowledgeable and educated, and knows what needs to be done to get you the specific results that you want. My advice to anyone who wants to get in shape is - give Natalie a chance to change your life! Dedicate yourself, follow her instructions to the letter and get ready to change!

My confidence is soaring, I have more energy, and most importantly I feel better. Whether it’s advice on exercise, food, or just day-to-day advice, Ryan’s expertise and diligence is unparalleled, and I can’t wait to see where my transformation goes from here.”

"I’m feeling great! My energy is high and my body feels stronger & better than it ever has before. I now move faster and for longer periods of time on the basketball court, and every day activities are so much easier. The workouts have been tough, but they are supposed to be - I love pushing my body to new limits! Each workout is a challenge, but afterwards I feel like a million bucks. My training is working well in conjunction with the Fit Natural Foods program. The meals taste great and they are very filling. I don’t feel forced to eat the meals because they are delicious & healthy, and they make me feel even stronger."

“Before I started training, I was a mess. I had gained 20 lbs studying for the LSAT, I was injured, and law school was starting. I lucked out training with Ryan. He fixed my aches and pains, and taught me maintenance/ injury prevention. The extent of my weight loss was an added bonus! Now I can finally do the things I want to, and I'm not done yet.”

“My main reason for training has been to put on muscle mass which has been exceedingly hard for me to do before training with Taylor. When I started training with Taylor I was at 220 pounds. Now after five months of training I weigh almost 240 pounds. I owe a great deal of this transformation to Taylor. He has listened to me and customized my training sessions to mold my body to my vision. His description of proper technique and alignment has kept the aches and pains out of my joints and in the muscle tissue where it belongs. He has consistently coached me regarding proper nutrition and required caloric intake to gain and maintain the new me. When I train with Taylor he is totally committed my session. I appreciate his consistent demand for feedback before during and after every session, it really shows his level of commitment to his clients goals, whatever they may be.”

“Prior to training with Taylor I was overweight and not eating very healthy, after a conversation in the gym with Taylor I explained my needs; I not only wanted to train with a personal trainer who could help me tone my body but I needed nutritional assistance as well I wouldn’t do one without the other, and Taylor obliged me.
Taylor showed me IPhone Apps to use to help me measure my food intake which measured fats, protein, calories and carbs, he also gave me sample menus to use as a guideline for daily consumption and grocery shopping. He instructed me in workouts that would help me burn calories as well as shape and tone my body.
I travel a great deal for work and sometimes it was difficult to maintain a workout program and to eat properly, Taylor also gave me some exercises to do in my hotel room so I could still stay on track for my weight loss and nutritional goals.
To date I have lost 38 lbs and I am eating much better and maintaining what I have achieved through my training with Taylor, I also feel better and have much more energy than I use to have.”

"My journey began when I first saw the scale read 195lbs. Recently engaged and fearful of passing the 200lbs. mark, I decided to stop letting my excuse of bad knees and reoccurring injuries be the reason I was obese. I started educating myself and becoming familiar with the foods I should be eating along with frequent walking for exercise. I realized I was going to need help and decided to hire a personal trainer to help design a plan that accommodated my lifestyle, body type, injuries and most importantly, my weight loss goals. Jordan helped me hurdle over obstacles and push through things I never thought I'd be able to do. After two reconstructive knee surgeries and constant pain ever since, he was able to help rehabilitate my knees that are now pain-free. Without his dedication, motivation, and accountability, I couldn't have achieved my goal of losing 60lbs. before my wedding and 25th birthday!"

“I had struggled with being overweight since the age of 7. I had always watched what I ate and was told by doctors that I was healthy, but I always felt out of place and bigger than everyone else around me. In June of 2010 I decided to make a life changing decision to eat healthy and exercise. To me, I was not going on a diet; I was making a lifestyle change that I could up keep forever. Within the first three months, I lost 15 pounds! I was shocked at the way in which my body had completely transformed, and for the first time, I felt good. In October of 2010 I signed up for personal training with hopes that I could further my health-related success. Four months later, I lost an additional 25 pounds and was astonished at my accomplishments. My body as I had known it for the past 19 years had completely changed. I do not believe that I could have made it to this point without personal training, but I do believe that I can maintain this from here on out with the physical and nutritional knowledge that I have gained from my personal trainer, Jordan Bucklew.”
