Patrick Murray8 Reviews
I'm a health & fitness specialist who has worked with the Essex/Hudson County community for the past 9 years, while working as a Fitness Specialist with cancer patients in a Stage III Cardiac Rehabilitation & Diabetes program at Robert Wood Johnson Fitness & Wellness Center. My clients have varied from professional athletes to cancer patients, diabetics, pre/post natal mothers and the senior population. I have always seen each client as an athlete in their own way, no matter their goals. My clients goals become my goals and it becomes a team approach to their success. Workouts could vary for different goals and contraindications, but could include weights, boxing, kettlebells, flexibility, mobility, dynamic core movements; as well as behavior change strategies.

My favorite client story
I have a client who is 69 years old and has been working with me for the past 6 years. One week he's telling me how much the workouts have benefited his softball performance. The next he's telling me how much the workouts have benefited his business. It's always a new story. This inspires me, along with every client who benefits from reaching their goals and living a healthier lifestyle.

Patrick is a fitness trainer who is very knowledgeable and careful, taking into account a client's condition and needs. I came to him after a series of accidents and injuries over several years that left me weaker and bereft of the fitness I once had. He has provided me with a broad spectrum of stretches, core and resistance exercises that address the need for overall strength and flexibility. After several weeks of training and exercise, I feel stronger and more confident. I am grateful to him for his knowledge and patience, and I would highly recommend him.
I came to Patrick with the challenging goal of improving my golf game by building strength and stamina, while increasing flexibility. His program, custom designed for me, has brought great results. His workouts have given me more confidence in my golf game with a stronger, yet more relaxed swing. I have added almost 20 yards to each club AND improved accuracy. Patrick is very knowledgeable, and together with his personalized approach, he optimizes the results of each workout. I honestly have never felt better!
I started training with Pat after physical therapy for a ruptured Achilles tendon. I look forward to working out with Pat. I’ve lost weight and inches. I’m 53 years old and getting “WOW”s from people seeing my transition. I have difficulty with healthy food choices. Pat’s patience with my struggle and his extensive nutritional knowledge has been so helpful. Working out with Pat was a great decision.
I came to Patrick while recovering from cancer and chemotherapy. At that point in my life I had gained a lot of weight and was always tired. As a military chaplain working with young soldiers, I knew it was imperative for me to return to my pre-cancer body or I would not be effective as a role model to my soldiers. At first I was too tired to work out or even eat properly. One of Patrick’s greatest skills is in motivating people. He texted me to see how my body felt and to make sure I was following the diet. After only a few just a few weeks of sessions, I noticed that my will caught up with need to get back in shape. As time went on, I soon got into a regular routine and now about 5 months later, I have the energy and drive to run and keep up with my soldiers. I would recommend Patrick for behavior change and training as I know I could not get back into shape without some drastic measures and a trainer who cared more about me than the money I paid.
Patrick is a superb trainer – he comes to each daily session with a varied and well thought- out fitness programme exactly tailored to my needs and ambitions. Training with New Motive Health has produced amazing results. My physical health dramatically improved in a matter of a few weeks. Patrick has helped keep me motivated and helped to maintain the great results we achieved together though a tailored but constantly evolving fitness program.

Patrick's skill as a personal trainer is beyond compare. Through his expert guidance over the last five years, I'm pain-free and in the best shape of my life. He listens carefully to what you want to achieve, and then helps get you to a level you didn't think was possible.
Working too hard, long hours, mental and physical stresses were too much; Patrick helped me come back to my senses with better diet, exercise, meditation and sound healing. His encouragement and professional skills inspired me to take better care of myself, starting 7 years ago. My life has been, and is, so much more rewarding for me. Patrick has worked hard and well for me!
