Definitely worth visiting if you are want personal trainer – The entire team at Muscle Mechanics is fabulous.
They are very knowledgable, professional, patient and helpful. If you are considering working out and don't know how to go about setting up a routine, they will get you started. I promise you will see results if you follow their instructions and commit to a regular sessions of at least 2 to 3 times a week. The staff will also provide guidance regarding nutrition, diet, etc.
I look forward to my workouts, not only because I am getting my body into better shape but also for relieving work related stress. If I could afford to work out for at least 5 days, I would go. I LOVE IT THERE AND YOU WILL TOO - especially if you want ALL the ATTENTION to be on you alone during your 30 min or 1 hour session with a trainer.
This is a small facility, where your appointment time is adhered to but they will accomodate you if you need to reschedule, provided notice is given.
The only issue I have is one guy in particular seems to always leave the toilet seat up. The shower is clean but ladies, bring your own soap and shampoo if you are high maintenance with your products as their stuff is basic. There are ample towels if you need to shower. One last thing, there is no high pressured sales pitch, so don't let that be a reason for not visiting. The payment options can be flexible as well.
Muscle Mechanics – This was my first time working with a personal trainer and I have to say, I had a good experience! Most of my training sessions were with David and he was extremely knowledgeable on various exercises. The sessions were tailored to my specific goals and I did see results I wanted :).
I would highly recommend visiting this gym!! The entire team is great and motivating!
Excellent Personal Training Experience – This was my first time working with a personal trainer and my experience was wonderful. I worked out with Dave for about nine months and enjoyed each and every one of my sessions. He was extremely knowledgeable about all of the exercises and knew how to adjust the machines in order to maximize my results and accommodate various levels of performance. He was very patient and encouraging with me and if I ever had problems performing an exercise due to an existing shoulder complication, he worked with me in adjusting the movement to a level that I was able to complete. Everyone at Muscle Mechanics was very helpful and friendly at all times. The facilitates were clean and the machines were well maintained and easy to use. I would highly recommend Dave to anyone who is interested in a custom tailored exercise regime with quality results.
A Great Gym – I've been working out with Dave for over a year now and still look forward to every session. They have great equipment and Dave always finds new and inventive ways to use each and every machine. I'm always surprised at how he can isolate each and every muscle. He's also done a wonderful job at working me through a couple of non gym related injuries.
All in all, it's been a great experience. Thanks.
Best experience in personal training – I've been with Muscle Mechanics for going on three months now, and they have exceeded my expectations. This is a first class personal training gym with up to date equipment, well qualified trainers, and a clean/nice atmosphere for getting your workout.
My trainer (Dave) keeps a recorded ledger on each workout and adjusts my routine, form and weight limits constantly which has given me very satisfying results.
Although I go there for a great work-out, the time seems to go by very quickly with great conversations and background music during my sessions.
I highly recommend Muscle Mechanics
I have worked out most of my life, but due to a couple of health related breaks in my routine, I was having a very hard time getting back to exercise. The regularly scheduled times with John AAron have helped me do that.
He has had to really individualize my workout due to my age and old injuries. He's been great at that. I look forward to my exercise now and can feel myself getting back into some reasonable shape. Thanks Muscle Mechanics.
Great Training Studio – I have been a client for almost 10 years. Muscle Mechanics helped me meet my fitness objectives. My current trainer is David. He provides great workouts targeted to my specific objectives. I would recommend Muscle Mechanics to anyone who needs some additional structure and attention to meet their goals.
Great Trainers – I've been training with David at MM for 3 months. I've worked with two trainers before and neither experience (though both good) were even close to my experience at MM. David is always prepared, completely competent and professional, has a clear plan for me, holds me accountable, and is constantly changing my workouts as my cardio and strength improves. Everyone I've met at MM is incredibly customer service driven (an absolute rarity unfortunately in society today) and the trainers are top notch (most, maybe all are degreed in some aspect of physcial education and/or nutrition). This place is a real find in Houston and I've been thrilled with my experience thus far.
The perfect gym – I have been attending this gym for 6 months and absolutely love it. The trainers are wonderful and easy going. They really care about you as a person and about assisting you in meeting your goals...whatever that may be. The training sessions are never boring and you will see the results!!! So, if you are ready to kick start your fitness routine, need a little motivation and want to feel your best...give them a call...it is worth it.
Don't wait to lose the weight – As a restaurant manager I was surrounded by healthy and unhealthy options; I was “veggie averse” and often chose the latter. My typical daily menu consisted of following items: Breakfast – 1 Belgian waffle, eggs, bacon, sausage, grits, a biscuit with gravy and hash browns; Lunch – a hamburger, a slice of pizza, and French fries drizzled with ranch and ketchup; Dinner – anything I could eat on my way home, or frozen dinners. Needless to say, I was more ashamed than surprised when I tipped the scaled at 350 lbs in 2007.
I then realized a change needed to happen, I stopped eating the large breakfasts and lunches and limited my trips to buffets. Without exercise, this change in diet contributed to my loss of 20 lbs in a year and a half, but it was not enough. I joined a gym, bought a Wii fit, and lost another 12 lbs in about 5 months. At this point, I thought “I know how to work out and it’s still not working, what else can I do?” That’s when my wife and I decided to join Muscle Mechanics for 3 months.
We threw out all unhealthy foods and introduced ourselves to a new low calorie diet. Muscle Mechanics provided us with a nutrition program that tracks your calorie intake and offers healthy menu options for your favorite foods, supportive trainers who developed a training program tailored to my specific needs, and someone to be accountable to when you think about cheating on your diet. The 30 minute Quick-Fit workouts coupled with an hour of cardio 5 days a week allowed me to lose an additional 30 lbs in 3 months with Muscle Mechanics. My trainers Jerrald & Brandon, John, and the rest of the staff were always great and supportive of me in my efforts to lose a total of 70-80 lbs. I would recommend Muscle Mechanics to anyone who wants to shed a few extra pounds and/or begin a healthy lifestyle.
