    Our Philosophy

    Personal training is about more than just working out. Our role as your fitness coach is to provide you with the tools and support needed to reach your goals.

    It is not just an exercise program. Getting in shape and healthy is a life changing event. It requires dedication and maximum effort.

    Our program does not include fad workouts or the latest diets. We do not have any magic pills or videos to sell you.

    While fitness and nutrition science continue to evolve, the tried and true methods that have worked for hundreds of years are still the core of a successful program. These core principles are tweaked for improvement as new research provides more effective or efficient methods. Ultimately, these are minor changes to the basic fitness principles which have always worked.

    As your personal trainers and coaches, we will not only provide you with training but nutritional guidance as well. We will help keep you motivated and positive.

    We will always remember that being fit is just a part of the end result. Losing weight, reshaping your body and being healthy will also restore your self-esteem as well as give you a positive self-image.

    From Donna Block



    From Komini and Kajal Joshi (The “KJ” twins)

    I want to start by saying I am a 21 year old, 5’1”, female and I LOVE junk food. I could eat 3 tacos at Taco Bell, a Nacho Bell Grande, a Mexican Pizza and a large soda with at least 2 refills. I also Love cheese. I would buy blocks of cheese and eat it every-day. Wawa became my best friend. A day would not go by without me eating out for my school lunch break or dinner. I would just go eat out for fun. As my love for food was growing, so was my waistline, my double chin and my FAT!!! I started losing my confidence and my self-esteem. I stopped wearing jeans and shopping. I tried everything, dieting, Cross Fit, the gym, Weight Watchers, walking more, drinking more water, the cabbage diet, the juicing diet, you name it. I kept yo-yoing. I would be good for a week or 2 then binge and end up eating 4000 calories in one meal. Yes, it is possible.

    My cousin’s wedding was coming up and I promised myself that I would the weight but the day of the event, I was heavier than ever. The next day, I knew I needed help because I had a problem with food. I knew that I couldn’t do it on my own otherwise I would have had it fixed by now. I sat in my room literally crying, desperately calling all the gyms and Googling “personal trainers”. The lowest price I got was $350 per month. Knowing I couldn’t afford that, I cried even more and then went downstairs to comfort myself with more junk food.

    On my kitchen table I saw a newspaper with an ad for training that’s affordable. I quickly called the number and spoke to Mr. Chuck. He is friendly, flexible in terms of what time to train and, most importantly, he has a whole lot of knowledge about fitness and nutrition. I went in the next day with my sister and we both signed up right away. I told him in 2 months I wanted to lose all my fat.

    Day after day we met with him to train. I lost ALL my fat and started to gain lean muscle. He completely helped me with my diet and he is really a gift from God to me because I was so depressed before I met him.

    I started to fit into my jeans again and amazingly by the 4th week I was into my “skinny” jeans that I wore in high school. He was so helpful and patient. He answered all the questions I had and boy, did I have a lot of questions. He made me realize how bad I was actually eating and most of essentially, how to clean it up.

    I am almost embarrassed to say this but I have seen more results in 2 months of working out with Mr. Chuck than I have gotten in my whole life of trying everything else. I can’t believe how much time I was wasting!

    I can’t say enough about Mr. Chuck. He always gives me way more than I pay for. I could thank him every-day and it would never be enough. Every time I feel like quitting, I can hear him encouraging us and push us. I hear him say, “control the weight” or “you can do it” and I can. When I am at school or work and about to take a bite of something that I shouldn’t be eating, I hear his voice in my head, “put that garbage down”. It gives me the strength to make the right choice.

    I would recommend Mr. Chuck to anyone who is seeking a friendly and committed personal trainer to help them reach their fitness goals as well as to learn about training and nutrition.

    We are so happy to help people change their lives.  Here is another note from one of our clients.


    From Sheila

    So, I’m a nurse, supposed to be a a good example for patients, right?  Just turned 50 used to be in good shape, next thing I knew I had put on a fast 30 pounds in one year. Then, I see a couple of my nursing students looking in great shape and asked them what’s the secret? They give me a number and I call it. With one phone call I got hooked up with a private gym, a personal trainer and a nutrition counselor all in one. Best move I ever made. Best shape I have been in. Best price I ever paid. Lost weight and feel healthier than I have in a long time. Word is out, what are you waiting for!  You want it? You need to call Chuck!!!!
