I feel fortunate to have such great clients. Here is what some of them have to say about working with me...
"I have always found it extremely hard to put on weight. I enrolled at the gym in 2007 at the age of 19 and, although working out regularly – 3 to 5 times a week – I found it hard to achieve my goals. I committed to healthy habits and nutrition but became quite frustrated for it was very time consuming and demanded a huge effort.
I was becoming low-spirited about getting in shape when I met Gary in 2009. I was living in Toronto at the time and back then I would rather spend my money on nice clothes and other goods. After talking to Gary I realized the importance of having correct guidance to channel my efforts towards the proper exercises and routines. I decided to give it a try and invest my money into my ‘permanent clothing’. I went through my goals, expectations, lifestyle and availability with him and the results were impressive, to say the least. Gary set up specific sets of exercises and brought different routines every other week. What had once become just another day doing the same old exercises at the gym changed into a dynamic routine with hard-to-the-bones exercises, which also made me realize the real meaning of the saying ‘no pain, no gain’ and learn that there are no shortcuts in life.
Gary showed me the ropes to reach a whole new level and mindset about fitness routines and life; the importance of discipline, patience, endurance and keeping both body and spirit at ease. He taught me what I should or shouldn't eat in order to achieve my goals in a timely fashion. Throughout the year and a half I had his services, he assessed me and advised me in many ways and the benefit from it surpassed the 1-hour-training sessions at the gym.
Had I known I could profit so much from this change in my body composition, I wouldn’t have hesitated as much on looking for some help. I feel much more confident of my potential, and both my mental and body health have never been better. I have moved back to Brasil, and nevertheless Gary still advises me from a distance, providing me with new sets of exercises and training programs (especially when it comes to a leg workout). Being trained by Gary was one of the best investments I could have ever imagined regarding my fitness health and life. By doing so, not only have I got a personal trainer, but also a personal friend."

"I have been training with Gary for almost 2 years now and I can honestly say I have developed the body of my wildest dreams!!! Like many other women, I have struggled with weight issues for most of my life.
I have tried every possible fad diet, cleanse, and diet pill in the book. Sometimes I would drop a couple pounds, but eventually the weight would come creeping back on. When I realized I needed to start exercising, I signed up at a local gym and hired a personal trainer. Working out was an unbearable chore for me and even with a trainer, I'd get bored with the same stagnant workouts and the even slower results. Finally, when I had just about come to terms with my overweight body, Gary came into my life.
After a friend had seen dramatic weight loss with Gary's help, I decided to give him a try. And let me just say, Wow!!! Gary is the most impressive and motivational trainer there is. For the first time ever, I look forward to going to the gym! Every workout is exciting and different. Gary makes sure that every minute is intense and engaging, and that each session works on a different target area of my body. But not only is he proficient in exercise, Gary is also my nutrionist! He ended my continuous yo-yo diets, and finally taught me how to eat properly and healthy, without depriving me of the foods I love.
Thanks to Gary, I can proudly say that I have finally achieved the lean, toned, and beautiful body I have always desired!"
"Gary helped me prepare for my first ever physique competition. I never realized what a difference every little thing makes. Even as someone who has been working out for years, every single exercise we do, Gary gives me something to fix or correct and it makes such a big difference. Instantly I actually feel the muscle you're supposed to be working instead of feeling it always in the wrong areas. His diet plans are amazing too, I get lean so easily as soon as I start following it."
"I had been training for years but without any real direction, but working with Gary instantly changed everything. He gave me solid guidance to push me to where I needed to be and laid out everything so it was easy to follow. All I had to do was follow his plan and in 8 weeks I saw more changes than I had in my years of training before. If you're serious about making a serious change in your body he has all the answers."
"1 year in and loving every second of it! Still a work in progress but I am excited about how far I’ve come already. When I first started my journey with Gary I was known to my friends as the lazy one who didn’t play any sports and sat around binge watching netflix. Well no more! I decided to start a whole body and mind transformation and it was the best decision of my life. Gary started me off training at my level and with small things I could do on my own as well such as eating better, doing small exercises in my house, etc. But then I decided I was just going to jump in. I started training with him 3 times a week which would consist of various strength workouts and high intensity intervals to keep me in my fat burning zone. I have never been happier about my life ever since and working with Gary has helped my anxiety and self confidence in so many ways!"
"Gary has been my personal trainer for a year and a half now and he is truly an excellent trainer. 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 new healthier lifestyle! He is the perfect combination of tough ("Gary, you are KILLING me!") and warm ("Melissa, you are doing SO well"), and he works with the whole person - mentally, emotionally and physically. Because of his efforts, I am stronger and more flexible, I have better balance and most importantly, I have lost a ton of weight which has made working out become fun. I recommend him without reservation."
"I have been training with Gary for 6 months in preparation for my wedding and can’t begin to express how amazing the results have been. I have been to other trainers and tried every workout under the sun and have never achieved the fitness level I am currently at. I have never felt stronger or healthier. Gary is passionate about fitness and it shows through the energy and enthusiasm he brings to every session. His easy going, friendly personality creates a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. He makes each workout challenging, creative and most importantly, fun! He also places a high value on correct form with each exercise. He motivates me to push past my perceived limits to get results. If you are serious about changing your life for the better, Gary will lead you every step of the way."
