I can't tell you how much I am enjoying Brian's program. I am feeling stronger. But the best thing so far is that my back pain and leg numbness is much, much better which is huge. The strength program has really helped me get stronger now that I am in about 7 months post surgery.
"Brian’s straight forward approach to fitness is personalized, methodical, and comprehensive. He is a knowledgeable, supportive, and enthusiastic coach. Under Brian’s guidance I have learned that training smarter does not necessarily mean training longer or harder. Brian’s personalized approach has helped me identify my fitness goals and develop a fitness plan to support those goals; to focus on “Quality over Quantity”. I have gained strength, balance, and cardio fitness under Brian’s coaching. Training with Brian has been challenging, lots of fun, and extremely rewarding."
"I am 63, had lost muscle tone, gained 20 pounds and was sluggish in the afternoons. Two months ago Brian introduced me to a program specifically designed for me. Each session I improved, gaining more strength and better balance. After one month inches around my back, waist and hips disappeared, clothes fit better, and I was alert in the afternoon. Brian’s knowledge and ability to adapt techniques extends beyond assisting seniors; he designed a rigorous and fulfilling program for my athletic teenage granddaughter. Time with Brian is a wise investment in a healthy future for all ages."
"I highly recommend Brian Gwaltney as a personal trainer. In a short period of time, he has helped me achieve many of my training goals, far quicker than I thought possible. He's also customized a long-term plan that is concise, detailed, and matches my individual goals. I've been a runner for most of my life and have been plagued by one injury after another. Brian's carefully planned workouts have enabled me to run injury-free and with renewed confidence."
"I have been working with Brian for three months now and I have seen amazing results. I have lost three inches on my waist and two on my hips. I am having to find smaller clothes and new belts. I am also much stronger and for the first time in 15 years, I can exercise without my inhaler! Brian's complete approach that includes diet and exercise has changed my life."
"I feel that the relationship has been a good one. While I've been able to set goals and train myself in the past, it has been much more difficult over the years to stick with a program that has increased my running ability without causing injury. With Brian, I've been able to focus on all of the components to being fit: better nutrition, increasing lean muscle, balance between work, play, pray, etc. He has been most encouraging and positive & he explains his methods well."

We believe that training should be reasonable. No one needs to throw up to get a good workout. In fact, we would classify any workout that leaves you physically ill as harmful. We want you to incorporate exercise into your daily life and have it support your life over decades.
Missing one workout won’t kill you. Missing 20 will cause problems. We don’t care if every workout is perfect, but we do want you moving every day. Consistent training over time will produce results and those results will last. Our goal is to help you turn movement and exercise into a daily habit for you.
If you get hurt in the gym, you failed. Training should build you up, not break you. Our number one goal is that you stay safe and injury free while working out.
None of us have lives that revolve around our time in the gym and we believe your training should reflect that. Your workouts should make the rest of your life better. A successful workout program let’s you play with the kids, go on a hike whenever you want, play sports, and enjoy an adventure.
Balance is a broad category in this sense. It encompasses literal balance like standing on one foot; balance between movements like pushing and pulling strength; balance within your workouts with times spent on strength, mobility, conditioning, and rest; and balance within your life so training makes you a better person that is happier, healthier and more capable. Occasionally, someone has a goal that requires asymmetries on one or many of those categories, but for the most part, we should all be striving for balance.
This point I stole from Ken Blanchard’s One Minute Manager. There is a tremendous amount in this statement and it is worth some reflection. It implies you have a goal which is vital to success and it also implies that every action you take affects your achievement of that goal. Evaluating your training against your goals is one of the most important things you can do. Your goals in the gym and out of the gym need to be considered as not all goals are synergistic.
