Laura and Nash

I’ve been working out with my personal trainer, Josh now for a little over a year following the birth of my first child.
Just a little background about me: before having a baby, I was very active, fit, worked out 5-6 days a week and had a super flexible schedule. I was very self-motivated and challenged myself physically to the best of my ability.
Then, I got pregnant ☺ My energy level dropped tremendously and I started eating everything in sight! I no longer had the desire to work out and used my pregnancy as an excuse to be lazy and eat. I gained 53 pounds. Once my little guy, Nash arrived, I had to learn to adjust to motherhood. I decided to breastfeed (for 12 months) which also increased my appetite. I knew I had to do something or else I would never get back into my pre-pregnancy pants again. Once my doctor released me to work out after having Nash, I was not motivated at all to go to the gym…it was easier to just stay home with my baby. This is when my husband Brian, introduced me to his long time personal trainer, Josh.
I’ve been training with Josh 2-3 times a week for a year now. Although I used to work out all the time, I was very nervous to start back up again after such a long time off. Josh took all that anxiety away. He was patient and took the time to learn about me and what motivated me.

Each workout is different, challenging and fun (sometimes, ha-ha). There are times I think, “There’s no way I can do that!” But he constantly pushes me and allows me to see that I can do way more than I give myself credit for. There have been numerous times when I’ve had a bad cramp, stiffness or unexplained soreness. Once I mention it to Josh, he says, “Oh, I know how to fix that!” He is a knowledgeable trainer with such great passion for fitness. Throughout this fitness journey, I’ve gotten to know Josh and now consider him to be a great friend. He came to my son’s first birthday party with a little Mickey Mouse and on his trip to Disney World for a conference he brought him back a Donald Duck. So, not only is he passionate about fitness, he is passionate about his clients (and their families).
The results I have achieved to date are largely due to Josh's perfect combination of diverse training methods, individualized exercise programs & challenging yet achievable goal setting. His professionalism, extensive knowledge and enthusiastic commitment to his work and ultimately his clients, provides the perfect scenario for success and sets foundations for a healthier lifestyle.

All in all, I love training with Josh and would highly recommend him to anyone. He is a great guy, he has amazing fitness knowledge, and he will work his hardest to help you reach your exercise goals.
