I had the chance to train with Doug during a spur-of-the-moment session. I mention the timing because it speaks very much to Doug's training style: Creative, enthusiastic, willing and encouraging. He saw a lost soul at the gym staring into a full workout class, and took a free hour of his day to (literally) show me "the ropes" at the gym. I've always been athletic and love working out. I love a good challenge and a good coach. I also love variety, learning new movements, and pushing myself. But sometimes, someone else pushing you is just what you need. After getting my basic info, Doug put me through a series of exercises that I had never tried before. Kettle bells, ropes, new stability-based movements, etc. were the name of the game. He taught them quickly and effectively, then put me to work. It was absolutely awesome and unexpected. And my three-day soreness afterward was entirely welcome. If you need a great trainer who isn't messing around (but is still a warm-hearted human), then you need Doug!
I would like to emphasize the satisfaction I received by taking sessions with Doug. He has helped me achieve my health, nutrition and body composition goals. He is the best and most knowledgeable Personal Trainer that I have worked with.
The results have been phenomenal.
Every session I am like wow, we have never done that before and we have been training for over a year! I am able to lift more weight and have an awesome body.
I am very happy with the personal training I received from Doug Chironno. Doug is very knowledgeable about both fitness and nutrition. He took the time to understand my goals and tailor a program for me. I found the workouts both challenging and enjoyable and I’ve seen rapid progress in improving my strength. I would recommend Doug to anyone looking to get to the next level in their fitness. Thanks.
“I have been training with Doug since January 2016. The sessions have been tremendously successful - in that time period I have lost about 20lbs and become much leaner. Doug keeps the sessions interesting and challenging. I have been extremely pleased.
I have been working out with Doug for a year now, I have lost about 3-4 inches in my waist, and lost a lot of weight”. Doug has also helped me with nutrition which has made me feel better and has helped me reach my goals!
Doug’s workouts are excellent! They are the perfect combination of high intensity work, cardio & strength training. He has helped me to achieve my fitness goals.
Doug's class targeted other muscle groups on a deeper level the ones I can't normally reach with the exercises I'm doing. Thank You for the wonderful class and I will see you soon again.
Happy with the model workout classes I had with Doug! He knows and sees what you need and how your body works. I like that he takes time to see where your goals are and what you want to achieve.
I have been working with Doug for about 5 months now. Not only has he helped me transform my body & reach my goals, he is encouraging and truly cares about his clients. Doug knows his stuff! Doug has helped me get my waist & hips down to a size that I had been working so hard to get to for years. Doug not only knows what his clients need physically, but also he is very educated in nutrition. He has helped me tweak minor things diet wise, to see the results that I have been working for”. I have worked with many trainers, but Doug has been by far the most hands on, available & truly invested in my overall health, wellness and goals. I would recommend anyone just starting out to very experienced in the gym, to work with Doug. He has the knowledge and skills that can help anyone and everyone looking to achieve their best self.
Workout sessions with Doug always fun, engaging and 100% customized ! He was able to design a fitness program that fits my lifestyle, which involves a lot of travels and work dinners . Doug is highly professional and is driven first and foremost by seeing his clients get in shape ! I highly recommend him!
