The Best Personal Trainers in Philadelphia
Philadelphia's Top In-home Personal Trainers
Best of 2017 - Check out these highly rated in-home personal trainers in Philadelphia
Hello, I’m Phil Nicolaou. In high school I was very athletic. Having played sports such as basketball, soccer and baseball all year round, I kept myself in good shape.
However, all that changed when I got to college. When I was about 20 years old, I lived a very sedentary, college-like lifestyle. I spent all my free time playing computer games, which are very fun, but require no energy and no caloric expenditure. Then one day, I had a physical exam with my long-time primary care physician. My doctor said that by spending so much time at home in front of the computer, I developed a really bad eating habit, and considering I hardly moved, I managed to accumulate quite a bit of body fat.
He said for someone my age and height, my BMI (body mass index), which is the measure of your body weight for your height/size frame, was not good and that if I continued down that path, I stood a good chance of developing various diseases that are caused by being VERY overweight, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, among others.
I had not realized that my health had deteriorated that bad! This was a wake up call for me. The next week, not knowing ANYTHING about exercise or dieting, I decided to join a local gym. I went religiously, but had no clue what I was doing. I worked my chest everyday thinking that the more I did this, the more I’d get big and strong! I didn’t know that muscles need time to recover and that they grew at rest, not at the gym. I would also do two hours of cardio. For someone that just started working out that is what I would call a SEVERE overtraining! Two hours of cardio a week into a workout routine?!
But I didn’t know any better. Until one day, at the front desk of the gym, I came across a business card for a personal trainer. I had nothing to lose, so I called this trainer, told him my situation and he said he could help! He was my trainer for about a year. He prescribed proper cardio workout for me to do, monitored my food intake and monitored my weight exercises. And in several months, I went from having 38% to 15% body fat.
Working with him inspired me to become a trainer myself. Since then, I've managed to obtain over 10 more certifications ranging from nutrition to yoga, pilates, core conditioning and post-rehab, so when we work together, you can trust that I DO HAVE the KNOWLEDGE and expertise to help you!
I have been a personal trainer since 1999, so rest assured you are working with the best in Philadelphia!
Since then, I realized that it is my calling to help people achieve life changing results through proven science! To get out of being obese and to get off the medications that can be costly both money-wise and health-wise.
Becoming a trainer is the best decision I made to help people! I went from being obese to being healthy and you can too!
Let me help you learn what I’ve learned through NESTA, the IFPA and through daily experience,over the past 10+ years. Let me help you see that you can change your life and to live a happier, healthier and longer life. I learned a lot about dealing with various health challenges that people faced. Let me be your guide to complete wellness! Let me be your mentor to make your transition.
People always tell me “do you know what it’s like to be so fat that your clothes don’t fit, to turn to food for comfort, to get laughed at for being larger, to not be able to fit into certain rides or do certain fun activities with family and friends just because you are too big?” My answer is YES, I do know and YES, we can change that. That is one thing not written in stone! I can empathize with you! I know the road is not easy, but I will be there every step of the way as your trusted fitness source! I can help you change your mind set to think healthier and more positive and to become healthier through a proper program design and implementation and, most importantly, through wellness coaching. To see what aspects of your life you feel are lagging behind and to make your life a complete, well-rounded wheel that when put on your car of life, will give you a smooth ride! You don’t have to be fat or unhealthy anymore! Lets go!

My mission is to assist individuals in discovering their athletic capabilities, regardless of age or fitness level. My approach is to initiate training through a movement screening process, to fully understand how your body responds to training activity. This assists us in building a targeted program that will enhance mobility, stabilization, conditioning, strength, and power. Most importantly, this provides a platform for education and insight into your specific body mechanics.
I request the utmost compliance in a training program. In addition to our meetings, I supply program templates to integrate both cardiovascular and strength training for you to follow between our scheduled meeting times. These additional tools are imperative to help you progress towards your goals quickly and efficiently. With my coaching and expertise, I look forward to helping you reach your health and fitness goals through sound science, hard work, and education!
I became a personal trainer to help people live happier and healthier lives. My goal is to provide my clients with exercise and nutrition education that empowers that person to take control of their health and wellness. Based on an initial fitness evaluation, I create a detailed exercise program for each of my clients that best fits his or her needs and goals. I provide additional mobility, strength, cardiovascular, and nutritional programming to my clients so that they have guidance between each session.
Having trained and educated other personal trainers in a corporate gym setting, I have a great deal of experience articulating the science behind exercise in an easy to understand manner. I describe my training style as supportive, educational and encouraging. My specialities include weight loss and nutritional programming, strength and condition, boxing, martial arts, and movement analysis/correction. I hold a black belt in Kenpo karate and have been coaching clients in Muay Thai Kickboxing, traditional boxing, jiu jitsu, and wrestling for 4 years.

I believe the body needs to be challenged in many ways for it to be at its best. Therefore I train the body from head to toe and have you exercise in multiple ways, such as up and down, side to side, and twisting motions. I also incorporate many neglected areas such as balance, reaction training, stability training, power training, and flexibility training. I also advise clients to use the foam roller to improve muscle imbalances and to reduce the chances of injury.
I grew up my whole life playing sports. I never lifted a weight until I was a senior in college. Fitness has become the most empowering and consistent thing in my life. It's my passion to help people find their place in the gym and build self confidence.
If you can change your body you can change your mind. If you can change your mind you can change anything. I would love to be there while you realize this and help you change your life.

Hi my name is Jordan Hankins and I am a challenge seeker, human performance coach, artist, foodie, yogi, fan of hip hop, volleyball player, and dog lover. I joined FYT to help others commit to leading a healthier, more fulfilling lifestyle through diet and fitness. My clients include mothers, fathers, athletes, business owners, students, and other professionals who have a hard time making room for fitness within their busy days. My area of focus is interval strength training, weight loss, functional mobility/flexibility, and injury prevention. My favorite exercises are those that require you to move using the whole body through interval training. I pack a lot into an hour session and am very attentive of your abilities to either scale back or push you to do more.
The world of health and fitness can be overwhelming and confusing with many theories, fad diets, and complicated exercises. I teach my clients proper nutrition and exercise based on their personal goals and unique bodies. I love to see my clients progress each week in the areas of strength, fat loss, cardiovascular capabilities, flexibility, and improved blood pressure readings!
We can work together to strategically reach your goals for a better quality of life, improved internal health, and a nicely toned body! It is essential that my clients have a motivation to change because with change, comes resistance.

I do my best to balance professionalism with fun. It goes without saying I'm going to push you past your comfort zone but I'll never make you do something unless I'm certain you can do it. You'll realize quickly that I know your limits better than you do.
I understand what it's like to be human. As soon as I finish one meal, I'm thinking about the next. I strive for a manageable lifestyle. A life worth living with a body worth living about.
My clients know me for my clear direction and insightful advice. During the workout, I'll give you instructions that are easy to follow with the support and motivation to crush each session. You'll leave with tips that will allow you to make conscious decisions outside of the gym.

"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."

My approach to training is based on building a rapport with each client; understanding their exercise likes/dislikes, goals and lifestyle. From that, I create a program that is tailored specifically to each client’s needs — complete with nutritional guidance.
I like to keep workouts fun and challenging, while offering variety. Starting at a pace that you can handle is critical for me, followed by increasing levels of intensity as your fitness level progresses.
Ultimately, my goal is to impart to each client a wealth of knowledge of good exercise and fitness so that they’re empowered to eat well and stay fit whether working with a trainer or not. This ongoing client education not only keeps them interested and highly motivated, but the physical results are truly amazing!

For two years, he was tasked with providing exercise instruction for those who fell below the Navy’s fitness standards with the goal of them passing the physical performance tests.
After receiving an Honorable Discharge from the Navy, Harry continued his education at Penn State University, where he earned a B.S. Degree in Kinesiology/Movement Science, with a focus on Physical Therapy. While there, he took several nutrition courses which provided him with a deep understanding of health and fitness at the molecular level.
Passion for “all things fitness” drives my desire to do more and learn more; and it makes me a trainer who will teach, build and encourage my clients to not only be fit, but to BE the best that they can be. “No one stops, no one quits”.
