I recently signed up for a personal training session with John. I have been an avid member of Wildcat Fitness, minus the few months I was away studying abroad, and I really enjoy the atmosphere of this gym. Upon returning to the states an MRI examination found five stress fractures in my foot, so needless to say my running routine came to a halt and I quickly found myself stuck in the same monotonous morning routine of lifting the same weights and doing the same cardio. However, after my training sessions with John I am now more confident with my lifting techniques and I learned so much from the short amount of time we spent together. John was able to show me the proper ways to lift and he helped explain to me what I was doing incorrectly, and how I could improve my daily workout sessions. My first session consisted of an abs workout and arms, and needless to say I finally began feeling the burn in my muscles once again. I really appreciated how he took to the time to discuss with me the areas I wanted to work on, and he also thoroughly explained and modeled each movement to ensure I was comfortable with the weights and that I was doing the movements correctly. A few days later we then did a leg workout, and the next day I certainly appreciated him showing me new lunges and squats to help improve my tone. Throughout my two sessions with John I was able to improve my workout and I also learned more than I anticipated about the proper ways of lifting, nutrition, and the importance of hydration and stretching. John is extremely knowledgeable about the gym and he was able to help me feel confident about my gym routines again. His dedication to helping those he is training is admirable and I definitely want to continue with training with John in the near future!
