"At the ripe old age of 16 I was almost bedridden with back pain to which the back specialist finally gave me a diagnosis of degenerative disc disease where seven of my discs were over halfway gone. He said my back was the equivalent to an 80 year old's.
This is where my passion comes in. I have spent my life researching and helping others prevent pain while accomplishing goals they never dreamed were still possible.
I was told no matter what I did that I would be paralyzed from the neck down by the age of 30. I am now 36 without pain most of the time all without medication or surgeries.
This has given me the passion and the knowledge needed to help people get to their goals even when they first believe it isn't possible anymore."
Thanks for your interest in training with me!
I'm a Nationally Certified Trainer based in LoDo, Denver. My training methods have a big emphasis on progressive calisthenics (bodyweight training). Accordingly, my program design is built on a principle of increasing strength and skill level that results in dramatic improvement in body composition when combined with proper nutrition.
I have attained 13 various fitness certifications, and have attended dozens of advanced fitness workshops and seminars with some of the best strength coaches in the world. I'm constantly studying and reading about new advances in fitness to incorporate into my training methods.
Expect me to be on time, with your program already designed on my tablet and with my phone put far away. I'll motivate and guide you every minute of your session. I try to motivate my clients when they are struggling, but I don't ever yell at my clients. We'll be training with a laser focus on your goals until we reach them. It will be challenging, we will have fun with it and every session will make you feel great about your progress!
Sessions will be conducted from an established gym in LoDo (NO MEMBERSHIP FEES).
WHY ONLY $45? To cut down the cost, I implemented a new training model. It’s very simple - you’ll be training together with one of my other clients. You’ll still have your own program for each session, I’ll be there to make sure your form looks good, I’ll demo all the exercises! You’ll reach you goals just as fast, the only difference is that you’ll do it with another client just like you!

I have worked within the fitness industry for well over 20 years now. There's very little that I haven't seen come down the pike in business. From clients not being able to figure out why they're plateauing to every new quick fix workout and diet plan. I have always found that when things aren't working it's usually because at some level basic fundamentals are being ignored, such as proper nutrition, intensity levels and consistency. And of course there's basic arithmetic: calories in calories out. With that said, nothing replaces the real world experience that a Master Level Trainer brings to the table. My experience ranges from working with elite level athletes to corporate execs and the new mom looking to get back into pre-baby shape. The positions I've held within the industry are vast, going from an entry level position to eventually owning my own facility. If there's one thing I always share with clients is that I will never set them up for failure. I'll never ask you to do something you can not do. This is something I constantly remind the client. We have trained and worked your capabilities to the point where you CAN do that.

I have been passionate about fitness ever since watching the benefits that proper nutrition and exercise had on my father during his battle with Lymphoma. I have been training clients of all levels and abilities for over 10 years in Los Angeles and New York City and now I am looking to build my business in beautiful Colorado.
My style of training varies tremendously, as I really do try to make each session tailored to my client's specific needs and goals. I do strength training, cardio conditioning, HIIT workouts, TRX, Kettle Bells, Cardio Kickboxing, Corrective Exercise, Yoga, and Pilates.
Know more. Do more. Be more.
Learn about movement restoration and healthy habits. Personal training teaches lifting technique, supportive breathing methods, and individual movement flows for practice on the positioning you need most to make you feel great all day.
Previous client ailments include cancer survivors, hip replacements, the gamut of surgeries, generalized back pain, recurrent shoulder pain, trauma, and chronic fatigue all in combination with excess weight, lack of lean muscle, and low motivation.

I graduated with honors and a passion for helping others! I am now in business for myself so I can help more people and have more fun doing it!-
My passion for fitness began in 2010 when I decided to get healthy and lead a more active lifestyle. After accomplishing my own fitness goals, I felt better and more confident about myself, and knew that I wanted to help others improve their lives through fitness. After having my baby my main focus has been to help pre/postnatal women find safe and effective exercises to help through this special time in their lives. I believe that every women should feel strong, confident and beautiful no matter where they're in their journey.
A typical first session with me will start with a consultation where I get to know you, your goals and medical history. Following the consultation we perform a movement assessment where we check for muscle imbalances, posture, diastisis, and an overall look at how your body is performing. We then discuss our action plan and the ways I can assist you to help you get where you want to be. Our sessions will then include an individualized program for your specific needs and goals.
I work one on one with clients to provide the greatest amount of motivation and discipline possible.
I guarantee that I will guide you through each step of the way in order for you to see the results that you've always been looking for!

-Guiding clients that want to bulk up, increase lean muscle mass and attaining the most conditioned physique.

As someone who has had my own weight loss journey as well as traversed the ups and downs of three pregnancies, I am familiar with the struggles of trying to lose weight and balance a real life.

I will push you and make you uncomfortable - discomfort is what brings change! We will also discuss nutrition, attitude and lifestyle as components of getting fit and staying healthy.
Hello my name is Chris, I am an independent personal trainer (in-home, outdoors, studio gyms). I'm currently training at of a gym called The Rebel Workout. I have been training one-on-one for five years. Including time at 24 Hour Fitness and Trans Fitness and Kickboxing. My other services are:

Whether you have a teenage child who is looking for sport-specific training, elementary-aged children who want to workout like you or you are a new parent looking to get back into shape and need a extra hand watching your little one. Does your child have Anxiety? working out and doing activities can really help your child through the problems anxiety can bring. I know firsthand. Call or message me for a free consultation.
Before I became a trainer, I worked out simply to stay in shape and get stronger but it became much more than that. Fitness can help you not only physically but mentally as well. I have anxiety and whether its lifting weights once a day, swimming for 30 min or playing basketball, I'm happy and content. That's why I started personal training. I always wanted to get into a job that helped people and I thought Personal Training was the best career path for me. My personal training stands out because I truly care about my clients and their fitness goals are important to me. This is my passion and I show it in every session.You first session is a free 30 min consultation and a 30 min workout. Let me Know.
I have a different experience than any other trainer, and I didn't just decide to take an online test one day! I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi with a degree in Kinesiology - Exercise Science. I have been a professional dancer for roughly five years, currently dancing with Ballet Ariel. Always looking for new challenges, I competed in two different MuscleMania competitions in Colorado - winning first place in the Novice Physique Division (second overall), then first in the Fitness division. I also recently competed on this year's American Ninja Warrior! While I may not have won, it was still a great experience and I plan on improving for next year!
I believe that working out should be fun! You should enjoy the process of changing your body - otherwise save your money and get a program online - the science is out there. My job is to inspire and motivate you to push through your perceived limitations; to allow you to see how much more your body can do!
My name is Anthony, I am offering high-quality personal training sessions at a very affordable rate. I am certified by the Amercian Council on Excercise, and have over five years in the industry. Each session is fifty minutes and is customized to you. I have trained a variety of countless clients, no injuries, no complaints, just results. I also have extensive knowledge in fitness nutrition and am able to accommodate those requirements on top of the training. I charge 30 dollars a session making it more affordable to those who can not spend twice that amount, if not more, in other environments! I have helped clients lose from twenty to sixty pounds completely revolutionizing their life. My approach in your training varies on your goals and the results you wish to achieve.
I train every day people with athletic movements so that you become better at things you love to do outside of the gym!
I was a lifelong athlete - minus a few rocky years in college, when I took time off sports and competing, consumed too much pizza and beer, and found myself 20# overweight and out of shape. For an athlete, it was embarrasing. After graduating, I took charge. No more excuses! I went to work, changed my diet and lifestyle, and lost those 20# to get into the best shape of my life. I learned about fitness in the process and fell in love with it.
My goal is to help you achieve yours - whether it's losing weight, toning up, building muscle, or training for ski season or a marathon... let's do it!
Taking charge of my fitness has had an amazing, positive impact on my life, and I want YOU to experience that for yourself. Fitness should enhance your life outside of the gym. My programs include personal training, nutrition coaching, and the support and accountability you need to achieve exactly what you want for yourself. Let's do this!
In my 8 years as I certified personal trainer and business owner I have enjoyed working with women of all ages and ability levels. Over the years I have found that many women struggle to find balance in their lives, whether it is juggling work and family pressure or finding time for yourself in an ever connected world. I believe that a few small, simple adjustments can lead to long term results. I am passionate about helping others and I work with each person to help them lead a happier and healthier life and feel comfortable in their own skin. I truly love making a positive difference in my clients lives and helping them reach all of their fitness goals.
As a personal trainer I build a relationship with each client so that together we can create a plan that is balanced, realistic, easy to stick with, safe, and gets results! I believe fitness and wellness should be dynamic, and fun. By offering shorter session lengths, virtual training, and fitbit programs, I have something to fit everyone’s schedule and budget. Not only do I have a private gym for training sessions but I am also available to travel to my clients home or office. I work hard to take away as many barriers as possible. My goal is to teach woman how fitness and wellness can easily be a part of each every day. To me, my clients are my greatest asset. Your success is my success!

WHY YOU NEED A PERSONAL TRAINER
"My trainer is committed to getting the most out of the workouts and to reach beyond what I'd otherwise do by myself."
Exercising with personal trainer is the fastest and most effective way to increase your strength, cardiovascular fitness, and lean body mass.1 Period.
Effect of supervised, periodized exercise training vs. self-directed training on lean body mass and other fitness variables in health club members. J. Strength Cond Res. 2014 Jul;28(7):1995-2006.
"I've been challenged. I've exceeded what I thought were my capabilities. I'm stronger now than I've ever been. I've never felt better."
Do things you never thought possible. Run that race. Fit into clothes you love. Get ready for that big day. Feel stronger and healthier than ever.
"I love the personalization I get with each workout. My trainer is flexible to work with and welcomed me at my level of fitness so I didn't feel intimidated. But my trainer also pushes me farther than I ever thought I could go."
The right personal trainer will observe where you're at and take you where you want to be with a tailor made plan to help you to achieve your goals based on your body and your lifestyle.
"I was educated on the value of proper form and technique and couldn't have gotten to the point I'm at without personal training."
Personal trainers specialize in the sweet spot between knowing your limitations and pushing you to the next level. You will always be improving and focusing on thoughtful training as a means of staying injury-free.
"Every workout is a little bit different so my body and brain don't have time to dread what's coming! It's fun and interesting and, most importantly, super effective and efficient."
We know what physical fitness is about more than a workout. In order to see the results, consistency is key. A trainer will keep your workouts fun and challenging so that you stay motivated to achieve your goals.

(Mobile Personal Training with women only) I'm a mobile personal trainer that will come to your home for your convenience, offering custom personal training programs just for you. I also offer 5 Ladies Only Fitness Groups per week in Niwot and Frederick. My availability varies, so you'll need to send me a message for specifics on days, times, etc. I look forward to helping you with your goals to improve your health, get fit and lose weight.
Expect to have fun and work hard training with me! I have helped hundreds of people transform their bodies - and their lives - with my expert fitness and nutrition guidance. My enthusiasm for living a healthy life is infectious; I will lead you wherever you are willing to go. Tell me your WHY and I will tell you HOW. Specialization: Women's weight loss Nutrition for weight loss Functional Training Weight Training Circuit Training Interval Training Yoga My mission is simple: I provide sound advice, planning, goal setting, education, encouragement, and support to my clients. There are no "get skinny quick" fixes in fitness- and I strive to encourage each and every client to work hard towards making exercise and healthy nutrition a part of their daily lifestyle. I do this through the implementation of CUSTOMIZED programming designed specifically for the unique needs of each individual client. Email me if you need help reaching your goals. I would love to help you!
Functional training for the Colorado lifestyle! I don't use machines or heavy weights to train, instead I focus on getting your body to work the way it should. In the process you will lose weight, feel great and good great! I specialize in TRX and Kettlebell training, having the highest certifications in both. I create workouts around these tools that can burn over 1000 calories an hour, plus help you burn calories up to 48 hours after the session.
I am one of the first people to understand that fitness goals can be daunting and at times seem unattainable. I aim to provide a structured exercise program that not only is manageable, but educational as well. I like to really dig deep and learn what each of my clients truly wants to accomplish. Through a remarkable understanding of your needs, will I be able to make small goals for you to strive for success.
I'm Eric Bach, expert coach, writer, and athlete. I've helped hundreds of athletes and regular folks build bodies that are strong, athletic, and capable of handling any of life's challenges. But I'm not telling you this to brag. The road hasn't always been easy. At one point, I was timid and weak, constantly comparing myself unfavorably to others. I was skipping out on challenging situations, from complicated life decisions to being too embarrassed to talk to girls.
I wasn't confident, or capable, until I dedicated myself to change. I built my body and mind, but eventually spent more time injured than training. I wasn't athletic. I wasn't healthy. And I wasn't happy. And I wouldn't be happy until a built a body that was the best of both worlds:
A body that was strong, lean, and athletic. Finally, after years of coaching, studying, and training, I cracked the code. By finding the perfect balance between performance coaching, nutrition, and lifestyle change I've been able to help hundreds of clients build their dream bodies.
Now, I want to deliver to you the same life-changing results: I guarantee you will be stronger, leaner, and more athletic with my personal training program. Your workouts should improve your life, not consume it. They should improve your performance, not just your physique. You deserve a body that looks awesome, yet is powerful and capable of handling anything life throws at you. Now You Can Build a Legendary Body. Program hopping never gives your body time to make progress.
You'll never forge the stronger, leaner, more athletic body you want and deserve. Instead, leave the programming to me. I take the time to get to know you and issues that are holding you back from getting your dream body. We'll start with a detailed initial consultation. Then, I'll a handcraft a program that fits your goals, your busy schedule, and your body. Your workout and diet will be 100% tailored to your goals and your needs. I'll Keep you accountable. Have you ever noticed how having a boss, coach or teacher pushes you to put out your best effort? That's not an accident. Having a coach gives you a huge surge of accountability, promoting the innate drive to put your best effort forward and crush every workout. But sometimes, even that individual drive isn't enough, which is where I come in.
Each day, I'll get a summary of your workouts and notes. That means if you're slacking, I can call you out and get you back on track. Abs Are Made in the Kitchen. This coaching program isn't a one-trick pony. I'll create a customized nutrition plan to accelerate progress and build your best-looking body, without completely abandoning the foods you love. The term diet sucks. Instead, we'll create a lifestyle that improves your health, helps you look great naked, and let' you enjoy the foods you love in moderation.
Your plan will improve your body and optimize your life, not consume it. Now, I need you to ask yourself a question. How much are you getting from your workouts? Have you really changed your body and your life over the last six months or even two years? Most people jump from program to program. I've been there, and it's a first class ticket to nowhere. Others hit the same workout they've done since high school. Both options suck. A lack of variety never allows the body to change, while too much variety never allows you to get strong, jacked, and athletic. Rather than being disappointed despite your efforts, let me do the planning and coaching for you.
If you're a serious action taker and ready to get results: let's do this thing. I coached busy professionals, athletes, and determined clients during the day and slay impractical lifestyles and body fat at night. I relentlessly work to fine tune the best methods to help clients build athletic bodies and awesome lives. By emphasizing basic movement patterns and practical lifestyle change, I create training programs that are 100% individual to you.
Everyone is physically capable of more than they realize.
Whether your just beginning your journey to a healthier you or pushing towards a specific fitness goal.. It is about making a decision to change your life and taking the necessary steps to make it happen. You can't put a dollar amount when it comes to investing in your health and well being.
My goal is to change your lifestyle to a healthier one through not only training in the gym, but using our on-site kitchen allows me to help you learn how to cook healthy food. Your workouts will be challenging but will keep you wanting to come back for the next one! I push you to your limit but will keep you wanting to come back. I tailor my workouts to the clients wants and needs. I always like to help with nutrition too. Our on-site kitchen is a great tool to teach healthy cooking.
The best training money can buy, with a private gym membership included. In my first 10,000 sessions, I've trained everyone from young professional athletes to elderly clients with severe disabilities. I use my expertise in biomechanics to provide both rehabilitation from past injury and "pre-hab" against future injury. I like to have fun. I'll have you laughing while wearing your ass out, noticing improvements you can see and feel, and living a better life. Every client is different, but the human body requires a balance of proper resting tension and flexibility of opposing musculature in order for the body to function smoothly and free of pain. So my philosophy is to create that balance and harmony for my clients, all while reaching their individual goals.
For safety reasons, your first session needs to be either at your building gym, outdoors, or at my gym located at 4697 E Evans Ave, Denver CO 80222
My training programs are individualized and based on your specific needs. Expect to have fun, work hard and see your body change. I have worked in fitness with people of all levels and ages from 7 to 89 years. I don't train with everyone because I love what I do and I want to keep it that way. I interview all of my clients and I am the only trainer in Denver who guarantees results. In addition to my NASM CPT certification, I have a BS in Kinesiology and Health Promotion, a MS in Sport and Exercise Psychology and am currently pursuing my PhD in Sport Psychology. You will be challenged both physically and mentally to beat down barriers to a better you!
I hate diets and fitness fads. I do life change. My passion is to help someone find their own path to success. Yes, you will get leaner in the process but it will come off and stay off. There will be no more yo-yo with the scale. You only live once, and you have only one body to do so in. I believe and teach about good choices. If you spend *most* of the time making the right choices you should be able to live a little and allow yourself life's little pleasures (for me it's cheese) once in a while. SUSTAINABLE LIFE CHANGE! I also like to teach and educate, I find it sticks better
See the goal, Believe you can achieve it, Pursue it relentlessly
Challenging yet encouraging workouts that will change your life. I get people in shape quickly and safely. I hope to teach all my clients the tools and knowledge to make fitness a lifestyle and not just a phase. Fitness is a lifestyle not a phase. Check your ego at the door and prepare to work hard. In the gym, your strive for progress not perfection.
I will do everything in my power to help you reach your fitness goals. All you need to do is show up and work as hard as you can.
My training philosophy is based off functional movement in all three planes of motion. We are going to enhance authentic movement patterns to increase your performance in life and sport.
As your coach, I just want to make you to realize one thing:
Change your Mind and you can change your life.
I publish race pictures of myself to show people that anyone with the right attitude and a little training can do things they never thought were possible.
Trust me, I am not a stud. I will be the first to tell you I am not athletically gifted. I am not winning any of these races, in fact, sometimes I am in the bottom half of all finishers.
You might think that would discourage me. In fact it is just the opposite.
Here is my story.
I grew up tall, gangly and weak. Having asthma, I spent a good part of my life sitting on the sidelines watching everyone else do sports. Yes, I got pushed around in school and had low self-esteem.
At age 15 I was a freshman in high school and couldn’t do a push-up or run a lap around the track. I flunked every presidents fitness test I ever took.
But don’t feel sorry for me, I didn’t even feel sorry for myself. I was just fed up.
The decision I made at that point changed my life. I went against the advice of Doctors and my parents and started working out. It was brutal at first. You know how kids are. You get get teased because you are an easy target. Then you go to a gym and you get teased because you are the weakest one there.
But I had a plan.
If I wasn’t born with the genetics to do this, I would simply be more consistent and work harder. My friends took time off in the summer, I didn’t. They would miss workouts to go party. I joined them after I worked out. Little things started adding up and I started narrowing the gap.
What kept me going?
Yes it was very hard but I saw the pain of the workouts and the pain of trying to get air in my lungs as a positive. I read every book I could on lifting weights and made friends with people in the gym. Any discomfort I had was far better than the 24 hour discomfort of not liking who I was.
In the end, I never became a great athlete. I played a year of high school football and sat on the bench. I played a year of college football at Trinity University (Division 3) and sat on the bench. Just being honest. I never had the experience to get the playing time to get the experience. It is a vicious circle. But I also realized that I enjoyed spending time in the gym more than breaking it down playing football. The joy of getting my Walkman (yes, Walkman. Google it if you don’t know what I am talking about) and going for a run always put a smile on my face.
So what am I doing jumping over fire at age 52?
I jump over fire pits, carry logs and run half-marathons because I couldn’t do these things when I was younger. Heck, I couldn’t have done these things five years ago. And most of it was mental.
You know, we all carry our childhood with us, for better or worse. And many psychologists think that figuring out and coming to peace with our childhood is our job as adults. If we do, we become happier people. If we don’t, we struggle with these issues the rest of our lives. For a lot of people, food is a major issue. You can try all the diets out there, until you change your perception of food, you may always have trouble with self-sabotage.
As weird as it may sound, I am at my happiest suffering during a race. The uglier the race the better. During it, I am at absolute peace with myself. We all spend our lives living different personas. I am a Dad, Husband, business owner etc… When I am on a trail, I am all alone, just me. If I am going to finish the race, I need to overcome a number of emotions such as fear, self-doubt, hunger, discomfort and in doing so, I become stronger. Once you get the mindset to do this, overwhelming fears become insignificant.
This year I earned my first Spartan trifecta completing a 13.5 mile, 8 mile and 5 mile obstacle course.For many, including myself, the races where you push yourself to your limits are life affirming and life changing. This was a culmination of a lot of hard work and sacrifice. Can’t wait to do it again next year.
Warning: If you are reading this and freaking out right now…don’t.
You may be saying to yourself, “Mike, I only want to lose a couple pounds, this seems over the top.”
What I do on the weekends may seem a little over the top to most people. Honestly, I think it freaks my wife out sometimes.Somehow after all these years, I have become some sort of quasi-role model. You don’t have to do anything I do. I just want you to know it is possible.
If all you want to do is lose a few pounds and feel better, that is awesome. I can show you how to do it a safe and efficient way at your pace.
If you have nagging pains from sitting at a desk all day, I can give you an exercise program to fix that.
If you have a history of bouncing from diet to diet, I can show you how to eat so you can control your weight and never be hungry.
In fact, my training may be the safest form of exercising you ever do.
I am not a psychologist, life coach (whatever that is) or motivational woo-woo speaker. But I do know a couple of things.
Never let other people define you.
And never let people tell you what you can and can’t do.
