About George

UNCC alumnus with a bachelors in Exercise Science. NASM certified.  My goal is to change the world through exercise. So many of our health issues such as low back back, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, etc. can be changed through exercise. I am a huge advocate of proper form with lifting.  I have been a personal trainer for the past 3 years training many clients at my university gym as well as my own private clients. Since I was young I knew I wanted to change the world in some way and this is the wawy that I feel I can make the greatest impact on other people's lives. The world we live in is at war with our lack of fitness to be the best people we can in our work place and just in life. My job and passion is to push people to levels they did not believe they could and see things they could not imagine by improving their fitness levels which will change all aspects of their lives. 


My favorite client story

My favorite client story is a college student named Gabe. He could not move much weight at all when I first met him but as I continued to train him he fell in love with calisthenics and got extremely good at moves specific to his passion while also losing fat and gaining a very noticeable amount of muscle in the process.

My favorite exercise

The Bulgarian split squat

My favorite quote

"Born a peasant
Lived as a warrior
Died as Kings and Queens"

My training philosophy

Expose the weaknesses to build a solid base from the start. Whatever movement patterns we have that inhibit proper movements I fix those first and as a result enhance how long a clients can keep progressing while decreasing the risk of injury.

My training experience

I have trained a variety of clients from students at my university to staff members upwards of age 50. Some clients have wanted to gain muscle, some just wanted endurance, and most popularly most wanted to lose some weight and just feel better about themselves. I have trained many different clients. Some of which I still successfully trained despite varying levels of Asperger's and language barriers. I take pride in showing things and explaining in a way that everyone can understand without feeling belittled or intimidated.

George was a great trainer. He started by getting to know me and my goals. From there, he custom made a program based on by objectives. I didn't feel like he was giving me a canned program. It's been three weeks since I started working with George and I'm seeing results! I'm feeling energized and stronger. This is a big deal for a 45 y.o. woman lol! I would highly recommend George to anyone young and old. You won't be disappointed!

George is a wonderful trainer who is extremely kind and patient. George goes above and beyond in our sessions. He works hard to make me plans to follow when we aren’t meeting. It is a great price for above and beyond service.

Sofia R.

George does an excellent job of setting personalized goals alongside well thought out workouts. He makes an effort to understand my limits and motivates me with these in mind. His sessions leave me feeling much more fit while also being knowledgeable of new workouts and ways to improve my health. Great trainer who I couldn’t recommend more.

George is very knowledgeable trainer. He truly understands the aspects of health and fitness!

Dominic

Definitely recommend George. He's a cool guy and really knowledgeable. He gave me a lot of tips and tricks that helped me get my training and eating habits together. Finally looking forward to the summer!

Kenny S.

George helped me kickstart my fitness journey! He’s knowledgeable, considerate and good at tailoring the routine to the client. A++ all around. I couldn’t recommend him more.

Deni

George is wonderful. In my first session with him he ran me through many tests to get an understanding of my physical ability. He explained the science behind everything he was doing and why that mattered for me and my health. George has kept me motivated (even though COVID) towards achieving my goals. He's funny, too, which really helps alleviate some of the pressure of the more awkward parts of working out. I would recommend him to anyone!

Gabe C.

Training with George is excellent! Like I mentioned in the headline, he knows a lot. He is encouraging and provided me with lots of motivation and support to get through the workouts we have done together. Whatever your goals, whether you are a beginner and want someone who is patient and can provide guidance for your forays into fitness, or you're more serious about improving your lifts and techniques, George has you covered!

Charles

George is great! He is a super smart trainer who isn’t in it for a quick dollar. He is empathetic and so caring. He knows when a workout can go harder and when to back off so you can recover and stay injury free. Overall a fantastic trainer.

Tim M.

What I love the most is how patient George is. He proceeds at a pace you are comfortable with and makes sure to avoid injury. He cares a lot about form so that you can optimize the impact of every movement. I learned a lot, especially about the muscles that are being targeted. Strength training became something that I did with a fully engaged mind. It totally stepped up my game!

Lanre O.

George is one of the best personal trainers I have ever had the pleasure of working with. George excels at the one on one experience and really prioritizes your goals. I 100% recommended working with him it’s the best decision I ever made!

Lena

George was great in getting me started on the right foot! We identified goals and are getting there with consistent excercise and a balanced diet. I recommend George to anyone from a total beginner to the athlete trying to maximize performance.

I've been training with George for about 3 weeks. I think he's awesome. He pushes you but not to the point of feeling discouraged. He's very knowledgeable about the muscular system and he knows the best exercise for each muscle group. And he is always concerned about performing any exercise safely to avoid any injuries. I would encourage anyone who is trying to get fit to give him a try.
