Today, I’m diving into the heart of the Fit Team – the testimonials of real people who have embarked on their natural bodybuilding, athletic, fitness, and health journeys with me over my decade as a certified, professional personal trainer.
These are not just stories; they’re transformations, victories, and the proof that hard work pays off. Let’s hear from some of my incredible clients past and present and their fitness testimonials.
Before and After
Before we get to the testimonials, let’s talk about transformations! From day one to the last rep, my Fit Team clients have shown what consistency, discipline, and dedication can achieve. Scroll down to witness the jaw-dropping ‘before and after’ pictures. These transformations are more than just physical; they’re a testament to the mental and emotional strength that our community builds.
It’s not just about the numbers on the barbell. The Fit Team, past and present, has shared their personal journeys, the struggles they’ve overcome, and the mindset shifts that fueled their success. Check out some of their stories below to hear about the resilience, discipline, motivation, and the grit that keep the Fit Team moving forward.
“I was a skinny, Division 1 soccer player. After my college soccer career prematurely ended, I wanted to focus on transforming my physique. Working with Fitman and really learning about how fitness works from the training to the nutrition and recovery has impacted my life immensely. My health is truly my wealth.”
Michele (49 and 50 years old in this picture)
“I had been training for a long time, but I was not able to attain the results that I wanted with my body. In 2015, I began to work with Fitman when he was still an independent contractor in Philadelphia. I followed him to Roslyn when he opened his own gym in 2017.”
“At the age of 50 I was in the best shape of my life. I was stronger, more muscular, and I had abs!”
“I once weighed close to 600lbs with a 72-inch waist. I had actually chosen the suit for my funeral and laid it out on my bed because I did not think I was going to make it much longer at the time. I thought I was going to check out.”
“I hired Fitman when he was a new personal trainer at Bally Total Fitness. He was the only trainer at the gym who would even consider working with me as the other trainers thought my size was just too intimidating. Trainer after trainer walked right past me when I initially signed up at the gym. They saw me as a lost cause.”
“Fitman worked with me every single week in the gym and with my nutrition to help me go from 550lbs all the way down to 440lbs within a year. At 440lbs I decided to get a gastric bypass to help me more along my journey. I continued training with Fitman and I eventually reached 330lbs. I’m glad that Fitman did not ignore me on that fateful day because working with him improved and changed every aspect of my life.”
Amy (46 Years Old in this picture)
“After my first figure competition, I knew I had to make big-time changes in order to build a better physique. To prepare for my figure competition in 2015, I hired Fitman to be my contest prep coach. His training and nutrition program was completely different than what I had done before because he focuses on making objective progress over time.
“The lifting, sprinting, and nutrition information he provided for me made my journey to the stage much easier. I was extremely happy with the incredible progress of my physique, and especially being in my mid-40s when I didn’t think it was possible.”
Ishmael (39 and 40 years old in this picture)
“In early 2013 I looked in the mirror and only saw a skinny fat guy looking back at me. I was approaching 40 years old, but I felt much older. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired.”
“I began working with Fitman in 2013 and began my journey to building muscle, losing body fat, and improving my physique. Using his program allowed me to totally transform my formerly skinny-fat body into a lean and athletic body. Even though it was not my goal, I was even able to compete in the 2015 NGA Mr. Natural Philadelphia master’s bodybuilding division. At my first show I placed 2nd in my class!”
Johanna (2019 NGA Ms. Natural Philadelphia winner)
“I started working with Fitman when I was running track at Pennsbury High School. Fitman’s coaching and training transformed me from a below average sprinter into a NCAA Division 1 sprinter. I walked on and made the track team at Rider University after training with Fitman. In April 2018, a few years after my college track career ended, I decided that I still wanted to compete in something.”
“I chose to do a figure competition. Working with Fitman and following his program led to me winning the 2019 title of Ms. Natural Philadelphia at my first ever competition. I NEVER did conventional “cardio” like using a treadmill, elliptical, or stairmaster during my prep. Fitman’s sprinting and lifting program, along with his nutrition protocols is what I used to get stage ready.”
