My favorite client story

In 2011, my Dad was hospitalized for 3 months after a stroke. When he was released from the hospital, he was wheelchair bound, and very unhappy with that. I told him to come to the gym with me twice per week. After 2 weeks, he graduated to a walker, and 2 months after that, he was walking unassisted, looking like he never had a stroke.

My training philosophy

If you can do something the easy way or the hard way, while reaching the same results, why not do it the easy way? What if the easy way gets your results faster?

I wanted to find a trainer who understands by back and neck pain issues, and then work with me to build a routine for slowly healing and building strength. Vishal understood what I needed from day 1. He is super patient and engaging. He doesn't push you to the point where you run the risk of getting injured. I highly recommend Vishal!
