I came across Justin's expertise a couple of years ago when I just wasn't feeling motivated. I was a former college athlete and seemed to have just burned out on staying in shape. It had always come easy for me, but for the first time in my life I found myself dreading having to go to the gym. I had a class or 2 with Justin though and explained to him what I was going through and he encouraged me with verbal motivation, which it's easier to maintain than it is to get to where you want to be, and by setting up a plan of action. I found the desire to go back to the gym after battling it for a month or so. Justin rocks and knows what he is doing. I'm proof of that and that was while he was still in his graduate program. He even checks in on me to see how I'm doing after the relationship we built over the course of training. Thanks Justin!
I took a great beach group fitness class with Devin and found him to be knowledgeable, patient, supportive, and encouraging. He gave us a different workout each time and kept things positive and fun, while making sure we really enjoyed our total body work out.
I started using Devin Burke as a personal trainer in January and knew right away that he was an exceptional trainer. His knowledge of the skeleton and muscles, along with his experience in a physical therapy facility, results in a superior workout. We did a functional workout with a concentration on building muscle and core strength. Devin incorporated many different types of exercises, including TRX, resistance bands and some equipment. If you have any issues, such as back problems, Devin will have you do alternative moves so that you will get the benefit of a full session. My goals were set in January and by April I had exceeded them. I was thrilled! Not only did he make this possible, but I also had a lot of fun along the way. I can recommend, without any reservation, using Devin Burke as a personal trainer. The only thing you have to lose is weight and flab!
I began an exercise program recently and wanted to be sure I was utilizing my time and effort at the gym where I live and not just wasting my time. Justin came by and explained to me the various methods of exercise to utilize in my gym with the treadmills and exercise equipment. He was very knowledgeable regarding burning calories knowing the best times of day to exercise, the foods to stay away from, and is an overall very nice guy. I have lost 20lbs and look forward every morning to going to the gym. I am eating well and have a new outlook on life. I would recommend Justin. He is extremely knowledgeable in exercise programs and staying fit and healthy. Thanks Justin for the skills and inspiration I needed!
