Troy is the greatest trainer to invest in. He is extremely informative, understanding, and constantly educating himself in fitness. I've been training with him for years and notice his growth as a trainer, even while battling Cancer.

Amazing friend and trainer!


Running, working out, and eating healthy are three major aspects of my life. I've always been a hard working, dedicated, and focused athlete. After moving to a brand new state for training to become a professional runner, I needed to work with someone who wasn't afraid to push me beyond my expectations and limits. After my first session with Troy I knew I made the right decision. I often called him insane throughout our workouts but his insane style had me stronger than any other point I had ever been in during my running career. I admired how he developed workouts that catered to my training style and also my level of fitness. I also admired how he explained what muscle group each exercise worked. Overall, I had an amazing training experience with Troy and this was one of the best investments I could have made for myself.

I am really impressed with the training provided by Troy. He is very educated in his craft. He makes sure to explain the exercise you're working on and the reason why. I love the fact that he just doesn't show what to do and the correct way to do it, but he works out with you!!! That's a big plus in my book. I would recommend that anyone truly wanting to change their fitness lifestyle work with Troy Gilchrist.

After giving birth to my son, I really lost hope of getting 'my body' back. Mr. Gilchrist always pushed me and showed me that with effort and will, you actually can do it. I am now in better shape than I was prior to becoming a mother (and all you ladies know how AWESOME that feels!). If he can help me, I know he can help ANYONE.

I have been training with Troy now for enough time to know he is a serious professional. One of my favorite things about his workout style is he doesn't "chat" or make small talk during sessions. He is ALL business. This might not be everyone's style, but I like nothing more then to know he is entirely focused on my workout, and not all trainers are like that. He uses every minute of the session efficiently, there's no waiting around at all. He has the entire workout on his iPad ready to go and he puts a lot of personal thought (ie: modifying for pain or injury) into every single session. I have worked with 5-6 trainers throughout the years and Troy absolutely stands out as one of the most dedicated, I feel lucky to work with him. He also is readily available on email to answer questions and found us a great gym to train at since I don't belong to a gym. Finally, I am seeing great results which obviously is the most important. I highly recommend Troy.

As an executive director who is always on the move, I must say Mr. Gilchrist has always been able to work with me and my schedule. Even when I have to travel for work, I don't have to worry about missing a beat because I know Mr. Gilchrist will be up and ready waiting for a Skype session! By far the most convenient thing ever!
