  • I have been working with Eddy for almost a year and a half now. He has given me the tools to improve my flexibility strength and overall better health. I would recommend him to anyone looking to improve and get back on the court or what ever sport you wish to play. He knows how to make that happen!

  • I started with Jenna in conjunction with chiropractic care for a knee injury. Then I trained with Jenna all through pregnancy and I felt great! It helped with my energy during and recovery afterwards. I was running for the go train at 9 months! Now Jenna is helping me get "me time" and make the most of my time at the gym as I learn to balance it with work and family. I would highly recommend her!!

    Tanya Pulfer
  • She was my prenatal fitness coach, and she did an amazing job, would recommend her to any expecting mother or anyone just looking to get in shape

  • I spent too many years hating my body and dreading exercise because it made me feel worse about it. Jenna has a unique approach to fitness that focuses on what your body can do (instead of what it can't), building your strength and stamina in ways that focus on your mental and physical health, and most importantly she is very open about her own fitness journey. She is body-positive and supportive but she'll never let you get away with slacking off when she knows you can give more! Now I exercise because I am learning to love my body not because I am ashamed of it.

  • ​I started working out with Jenna about 9 months ago. If you 're like me and go to yoga, pilates, biking, dancing but just can't see yourself lifting weights, then you need Jenna! She pushes you enough to make you stronger but not discourage you from coming back. Plus she'll accommodate your schedule and play your favourite song to motivate you!

  • Earlier this year I made the decision to get healthier and stronger. I have issues with sciatica and needed someone who could understand my limitations. I signed up for 40 sessions with Jenna. After the first day I won't lie I wanted to sleep in a constant hot bath for weeks...this was after the first couple lol but Jenna would push me and text me. Jenna is a fantastic couch and motivator. She helps you get out of the workout funk and understands when you need a week off to reset. She pushes you hard at the gym but I promise you she is doing it because she knows the results you will get. My but has never looked so good and I am very impressed with the weight I can lift/leg press. This is all thanks to Jenna. If you really want a change I HIGHLY suggest you see her.

  • Jenna is an unbelievable coach and motivator. I started with her at a very low fitness level after I sustained a major injury. She has been supportive to no end. She tailors my workouts to keep things fresh and take into account my goals. She is positive and understanding of my limitations while still being firm enough that I'm motivated to succeed. My body and strength and self confidence have benefited so much from her. I'd highly recommend her if you're looking for a trainer.

  • For me what makes Matt a fantastic trainer besides his knowledge and capability as a trainer, is that he has the biggest heart and he truly cares about his clients. I have been boxing with Matt for about 2 years now and I cant believe how much stronger I am from training with him.

    Erika Pompili
  • Exhlerating, fast pace with challenging surprise a minute activities. My body takes me where my mind never thought I could go. Love the adrenal rush. My fitness level has never been better.

    Michelle Ann Lewis
  • I have been attending Tony's Total Body Blast classes for more than 5 years. These classes compliment my other workouts as they combine cardio and strengthening. Tony continually changes the exercises, working the entire body in a fun and exciting environment. No matter what stage he will challenge beginners and advanced. Tony will push you to work hard!
