bodyFi has it all – I've been working with Lauren doing bodyFi PT (personal training) for several months now and she is fabulous. I am a working mom hitting 40 and waaay out of shape. Lauren listened to what was important to me (not be tied to gym only workout) and whipped me into better shape. I just started going to her bodyFi Bootcamps at the Marina Green and love it. Two best things about bodyF: They do these 30 minute intense bootcamps and/or training sessions that don't waste your time with things like running. It's hard core, one thing to the next, and it is a full workout in half the time. Love it. Second best thing is that the whole team is great, so as a working mom with a nutty schedule, I was able to work with others if needed. I worked out with John, Daniela and Jameela each at some point and each one was fabulous. No more working around your one trainer's tight schedule and/or if they get sick since they have a team. AND, really great pricing for working out at home, the gym or outdoors, so even more flexibility. bodyFi is really the best of all worlds.
I lost 12 pounds and 13.5 inches in 2 months with BodyFi – BodyFi has helped me get into shape after trying and failing at a number of other things. Their High Intensity Bootcamp is challenging but because it's only 30 minutes, it's totally doable. And it's outside, which I like so much better than being in a gym.
I lost 12 lbs & 13.5 inches in BodyFi's Biggest Winner Challenge. The contest created a fun atmosphere. Aemar is a great drill sergeant and manages to make the workouts really fun. I've also done a few private sessions to turn it up a notch. I especially recommend trying those if you can afford it because John (or whomever you work with) really zeros in on your weak areas and helps you strengthen them.
Excellent for Mind Body and Spirit! – When I first got signed up for Bodyfi I didn't know what to expect, but after about 4 months, 20 lbs and a whole lot of strength and confidence, I am proud to say that Bodyfi has been outstanding. John and Aemar really get the concept of getting people excited about exercise and overall health. I started out doing bootcamps, which can be at the group locations, or they will customize one for you. After about 6 weeks of bootcamp, I was feeling better and found myself looking for more. I started doing personal training with both John and Aemar and while I often found myself out of breath and struggling to finish, I also noticed big gains in my overall strength and was watching the lbs shed off! I joined their Biggest Winner Challenge, which was a fund raiser compatetition for St. Jude's Hospital and also a real challenge of fitness to see how many gains you could make with body fat, weight loss and inches lossed in the right areas and gained in others. After 2 months, I had lost 20 lbs and am doing things I never thought I would be able to do. I ended up winning the competition and feel so awesome about my acheivments. My clothes are all loose and some need to be replaced. I feel so much better about myself from a fitness stand point, but also an overall well being standpoint. John really helped me with my junk food habits and suggested all sorts of excellent alternatives. Have you ever had Pop Chips??? So good and so much better for you. I would highly recommend these guys, if you're willing to give them your time and effort, you will be gauranteed results!
Great Personal Training! – At 61 and 60, it wasn't easy to find the right folks to provide personal training - and they come to our condo to boot! All of the trainers are just great and they customize the training to meet our needs. Value adds are nutrition, health and well being coaching, and programs we can do between sessions. Highly recommended!
I love BodyFi – When I took advantage of BodyFi groupon deal back in January I had no intention of sticking with it for the long haul. My plan was to try bootcamp just to kickstart my activity level and then hit the gym on my own. Well that's totally changed! I've been working out with Aemar ever since. In fact, I even did a Personal Training session with Aemar where he came to my apt and gave me a workout plan that I can do at home. I've lost 32 lbs in 3 1/2 months! I'm noticing muscles on my body that I've not seen before!
Aemar is a wonderful trainer. He varies the workouts so you won't get bored. He pushes and encourages you without being a Drill Seargent. ("You are strong! Yes, you can!") He'll help you work with your old injuries....he always has alternatives for me and my bad shoulder. And he makes it fun!
Joining Aemar's class at BodyFi has been one of the best things I've done for myself in years. no joke. Try them out!
Best Personal Trainers and Workout Program – Wonderful results. I don't think I've ever looked better in my life. I've gotten so many compliments on my new physique since I started training with bodyFi. So far I've lost 2 dress sizes and many inches off my waist, arms, and thighs. I've been getting personal training sessions twice a week with John & Daniella and bootcamp classes with Aemar & Lauren 2-3 times a week. John really is the best personal trainer out there. He's great at getting me motivated and gives sound nutritional advice.
The bootcamp classes are very effective. The classes are only 1/2 hour, but you get a great full body workout. I've tried the High Intensity and Fusion classes. They are very different workouts but I like the variety that you get from each class. I love all the trainers and thank you so much for getting me in the best shape of my life!
I forgot to mention the downside. I kept having to go shopping for new clothes because everything I had started falling off me after one month of training.
bootcamp! – I had the opportunity to work out with each of the bodyfi trianers and had a wonderful experience! Working out at the gym or by myself is not my thing, so I gave bootcamp a try. I saw results right away and met a lot of great people along the way. The bodyfi team not only provided some solid and satisfying workouts, but they are also provided individual attention and great customer service. The workouts varied each day, which made the time go by quickly. Thanks for the great experience and I look forward to starting up again!!
Personal Training has changed my view on fitness – John and Aemar have been the single biggest fitness success program I've experienced. Period. Just before saying to myself, "maybe this is just how I'm suppose to look," I decided to hire a trainer to see if the personal attention would provide any differing results.
I have never been more satisfied with any fitness program. There, I said it again.
I've been having John and Aemar train me three times a week since last November in one-hour sessions in my building's fitness center and the results have been beyond what I could have hoped for. The hour is never the same, so I'm always doing something new.
There styles are different, but they will always challenge you, coach you and most importantly to me, motivate you to push yourself past what you thought you'd be able to do.
So, if you've been thinking about it, DO IT. Hire a trainer and hire good ones like John and Aemar.
Love BodyFi! – I've been doing BodyFi's High Intensity Bootcamp four times a week for a month now. The workouts are tough but not overwhelming. I've seen results in such a short period of time it makes it totally worth the effort. Class times and locations are broad and convenient, scheduling is easy and the instructors (Aemar, Lauren, Daniella and John) are motivating and fun. I would absolutely recommend it to everyone!
BodyFi will kick your ass and you will like it – Wow.
Coming from someone who used to think getting a work-out meant chasing down a taxi in a pair of five inch heels, I can honestly say BodyFi is an accessible, results-inducing, and fun program that will work for everyone. I never thought that anything other than the promise of a $5 manhattan could get me out of the office at 5 pm, but now I find myself actually looking forward to the high-energy, fast-paced, 30-minute program.
Thanks to Aemar, Lauren, Daniella, & John, I feel better, I sleep better, I have more energy, I find myself drawn to healthier foods, and my clothes fit better! The trainers are incredibly accomodating and continually ask for feedback so they can improve the schedule and routine for the clients. Knowing that are morning, mid-day, afternoon & weekend options helps me plan my sessions around social and professional comittments so that I don't have to miss a workout.
I would recommend this to anyone!
