I have tried a trainer at the local gym...not motivating enough. Then I tried Curves...too boring and repetitive. Recently I tried a kettlebell class with a friend and injured my low back and couldn't even see patients for 2 days. Then after talking with some of the other Duke physicians, I called Brian. What an exhilarating change! He wasn't overly egotistic like the kettlebell guy, he was a much better inspiration then the other trainer at the local gym, and mixed up the exercises to keep it exciting! Look no farther - this guy is the best! What really impressed me was how thorough the evaluation was, he looked at all my medical history, diet, and exercise background. After watching me go through several movements, he came up with a plan. Granted, he still adds the occasional kettlebell exercise, ugh, but he goes over the movement and will adjust if necessary. He also adds other forms of resistance to give a much more well rounded workout then anything I have ever experienced! We focus mostly of multi-joint complex movements, engaging the core, and adding cardio throughout the workout. His hands-on blend of all different types of exercises, diet tips, and grasp of human anatomy has helped me lose 3lbs in one week! While I know this may not continue at that rate, he has made a believer out of me! I have more energy now then I ever have and love to work out! This place is truly a blessing in my life!
Pros: Parking (easy), Atmosphere (extremely clean!), Top notch service
