When I came to Moe, I weighed 226 lbs and had a body fat percentage of 30.2%. After 2 months, I officially weighed 212 lbs and had a body fat percentage of 22.4. Moe has taught me how to eat nutritiously and how to be aware of what I eat at every meal and snack.
I have also learned how to exercise efficiently and utilize my heart rate to accomplish my fitness goals. Finally, Moe has been a source of constant support and encouragement, which is a major reason why I was able to reach my goal.
I know that I will be successful in my nutrition, fitness, and lifestyle because I have the knowledge and experience to do so. I would recommend Moe to anyone. I am proud to have made an investment in Moe and I can't thank him enough for what he has meant to my life.
You might say that I'm a late bloomer. I discovered Moe and the benefits of regular supervised exercise at the age of 54!
I was driven to Moe by a variety of circumstances, a need to confront the effects of my advancing age and to combat a nasty rehabilitation from knee sugery. My prior efforts had only resulted in further injury and several bouts of physical therapy.
Moe has changed all that. He listened to my list of concerns and took the time to devise a comprehensive fitness plan tailored to me. The results over the last 18 months have been superb. The general improvement in conditioning has been augmented with better posture and, as a bonus, reduced knee pain.
I'm honored to have this opportunity to recommend Moe's services to others, particularly to folks who feel they've been underserved to some extent by other professionals in this field.
If you asked me a year ago if Iíd ever consider going to a personal trainer I would have said no, the reasons being I canít afford it and I can get in shape on my own. Then a good friend of mine gave me a gift certificate for three sessions with Moe. By the third session I was already feeling so much better I decided to take the plunge and commit to seeing him twice a week for three months. Now I tell people you canít afford NOT to go to Moe.
Itís the best investment Iíve ever made. Three months later my lower back pain and bursitis are completely gone, Iím down two full clothing sizes, I feel 20 years younger and most of all, I am finally committed to exercising regularly for the rest of my life. Moeís knowledge, professionalism and words of encouragement during training sessions make him an excellent choice as a personal trainer.
from Fran Kinghorn, age 54 :
I have had the pleasure of working one-on-one with Moe Brown for almost 2 years now. During this time period I have gone down 3 dress sizes, become noticeably stronger and more toned, completed 2 half marathons and a handful of other other races and, most importantly, have made exercise and healthy food choices a part of my everyday life. I have truly learned to love to exercise!
My transformation is largely due to Moe's diverse training methods, individualized programs, and challenging (yet achievable) goal setting. His professionalism, extensive knowledge and commitment to his clients provides a platform for success as well as the foundation for a new, healthier lifestyle. All I can say is if you do what he tells you to do, you will succeed!
from Clara Rosenthal:
Working with Moe has transformed my life. He helped me reach and then exceed my weight loss and fitness goals, which led me to reassess what I might be able to do. With Moe's guidance my cardio routine started to include running. After he coached me through my first 5K race, my twenty-something daughter invited me to run a 10 mile race with her. I followed Moe's training plan and found I could run 10 miles. That gave me the confidence to tackle the water, and now, finally at age 58, I'm learning to swim. Along the way, exercise has become a fun, integral part of my day.
When I initially called Moe, I knew I needed to lose weight, but was unable to stick to a plan and felt the gym to be ineffective drudgery. I came with a simple goal that was unreachable on my own Ė to be fit and healthy. He put together an individualized plan of diet and exercise. He taught me to be aware of the macronutrients in my diet, not just calories; the purpose of strength training, different muscle groups and the importance of proper form, various types of cardio routines and their place in my overall fitness; and most importantly, the role a positive can-do attitude plays in overall success. What began with a simple goal has become a journey, and I'm looking forward to seeing where it will lead.
from Karen Baron:
I was privileged to work with Moe for 3 months at Your Personal Best. I cannot say enough positive things about working with him over this time. I came to him full of aches and pains and a body that didnít work well. Moe never coddled, but always encouraged. He helped me to set attainable goals and we began working and never looked back. As a woman who had always HATED exercise, as I came to work out I began to look forward to my time and the work we would do. Over my time working with Moe I became stronger and more flexible, and more confident in my abilities. I will always be grateful for the jump start into my personal health that Moe helped me to achieve.
