I can't recommend any more. I was a member here for almost a year. The program worked well until two of the trainers left. While I was in the program I wrote glowing reviews until things went south. For the first 4-5 months, I never trained with Ron. It was the two hired trainers I worked with. After those two trainers quit, Often, there were No Trained or Certified instructors available or onsite. I was a strong supporter of this program until I had no trainers. I know Richelle M below and I also know several of the other reviewers. You will see two camps, one will be people that are still there and help him with his business in exchange for reduced or no membership fees and then there are those that did well and left due to poor business practices or due to the lack of trainers or the problems as described. Trish H was a trainer and she is no longer there. Richelle M was a client that would have a different story if she was writing it today. Michelle D is currently there and is the individual that works social media for the owner. I am not saying the program does not work. By all means it does as long as you stick to it but buyer beware.
Being overweight my entire life, I have tried everything. This is the first place I have ever actually enjoyed working out. Yes, I said enjoyed it. The people are simply amazing. You will never in your life meet another group of people who care so much about you and your goals. From Ron, to the trainers, to the members, every single one of them genuinely care about what you are trying to accomplish. The sense of accountability is phenomenal. The camaraderie between members is as good as family. Everything you do will be with a team of people around you to support and motivate you. I have thoroughly enjoyed every single minute. And don't think the workouts will be easy. They will challenge you to your core, literally. But when you are done, you will be so amazed at what you have accomplished. You will leave every day feeling a sense of pride in yourself.
I cannot say enough good things about this place. I just finished my 20th week and I am a completely different person. I love the confidence and strength I have built over this time. I cannot imagine life without Ultimate Body Studios. This place is not for everyone. It is not for people without commitment, drive, heart, and motivation. But if you are truly ready to change your life, there is no better place to be.
Excellent Program! – This is a great program! It's not a typical gym that you pay your monthly fee for and come and go as you like. It's a commitment and an investment that is worth every penny! I did 20 week program in Plano and the trainers were amazing. My results were great and more important - consistent. As with anything else, you will get from this program what you put into it. If you give 100% you will be amazed with what you are capable of doing. The classes are small and personal and the trainers want everyone to succeed. They make themselves accessible by email/txt for support outside of class and really understand how difficult it is to juggle a consistent fitness program into our busy lives. I loved it!
Be all that you are truly capable of being! – I never played sports growing up and as a result, I just never had that drive or competitive spirit that is required to be an athlete, right? That's what I thought - until I was introduced to Ron Lyons Ultimate Body Studios. A few years ago I was working 60+ hours a week with 3 children and a husband on a 12 month job assignment in India. I was exhausted, had gained some weight from poor eating choices and wanted to find some "me" time. I was looking at a finding a personal trainer at the Y until someone told me about UBS. Quite honestly, it was kind of an impulse move but I signed the contract, showed up for my first day and only then did I realize what I had gotten myself into.
I committed to give them 20 weeks of my life and in return, Ron and his trainers committed to hold me accountable, cheer me on when I thought I couldn't do one more rep and most importantly, remind me that I am worth it. They taught me how adapt healthy eating into my busy work day with proper planning and in return I got stronger physically and mentally and without even realizing it, I became an athlete. I was still working 60+ hours a week but when I wasn't working I was running in local events and cycling with my daughter. Before I knew it I was in Washington DC with my brother running the Army 10 Miler and training for a 100 mile Century ride and I owe it all to Ron Lyons Ultimate Body Studio.
On one of my training rides last year I had a crash and serious injury to my arm that required 2 plates and 14 screws to repair. I had 6 months of rigorous PT to regain the use of my arm and I can say, without a shadow of a doubt, that I would not be where I am today - back at Ron Lyons Ultimate Body Studios at 100% - without the confidence I gained through the program. No excuses - just hard work - and quite honestly, the best part of my day!
The only thing I would change about my experience at UBS is an opportunity to hang out with my fellow UBS classmates when not dripping with sweat ... I wonder if we would even recognize each other! :)
Are you dedicated? – Ron Lyons Ultimate Body is not just a gym to workout and be social. It is a gym that holds you accountable and pushes you to the next level. I ask you, name one gym that does this? If you are like me, you cannot come up with one because there is not one. I played college softball and know what it is like to be pushed. However; once college was over, I needed a facility with employees and like members that had same goals as I did…to get results. Not only do the trainers push you to the next level but your classmates do as well. You are held accountable for what you eat (it is NOT a fad diet!) and pushed daily in cardio and weight training classes.
Previous posts from the weak hearted said poor things about Ultimate Body. I can tell you that in order to accomplish your goals here, you have to be dedicated. Those who are not willing to put in the effort and are looking for a social scene, go somewhere else.
I can speak this as a client AND as a trainer. I had such great success with my 20 week program, I got CERTIFIED at Cooper Institute as a Personal Trainer and I am now training along Ron and Corey living my dream. I challenge you to the 20 week. Are you up for it?
Finally... A program that works – If you are looking to be pushed to your limits but definately get resutls. Then here is the place. If you follow what they say and put the hard work into it, you will definatley get what you want out of it. Ron knows his stuff and is will to help you get there. He actually came and spoke to my health classes abotu food and nutrition. So as you see also willing to help our kids make right choices so they dont have to see him later in life!!!!!!
Waste of Money – I signed up for this program a few months ago. I've lost about 20 pounds, but that had nothing to do with Ron, it had everything to do with Corey. Corey is an amazing trainer with a great personality and he really cares about you. With that said, this gym is ridiculous. I was told in the beginning of the course that any missed classes that were excusable would be added on to the end of your course. When I tried to talk to Ron about that, he got very defensive and in my face about how that has even been a practice of UB and if I wanted a makeup class, that was what Saturday was for. I was told Saturday was an extra class they offered for people who wanted an extra kick. He also has no constant payment and keeps putting other members on secret diets. I know that two of the members in another class our now on the Atkins diet. Ron is just a shameful man with horrible business practices and if you say anything to him, or ask him any questions, he will bite your head off.
This gym is awful – The gym is small, dirty and most of the equipment is broken or taped together. I was on a bike when one of the pedals came off. That was three weeks ago and the bike still hasn't been fixed. People have fallen off bikes where the seat has come loose. Ron has multiple trainers that work for him and only one is certified. I've heard nothing but horror stories from other members about the treatment they've received from Ron. He's constantly asking us to promote this business for him. Well here you go, Ron. If you want a small, filthy gym with an owner who doesn't care and never shows up on time, then join here. Flush your money down the drain! If you work out hard, and follow the program (which looks suspiciously like the South Beach Diet), you'll lose weight. But you could easily save yourself a ton of money and grief and go somewhere else.
This program ROCKS! But it's not for the weak minded... – This is my second time around doing this program (couldn't complete the first one cause I got pregnant). I have been at it 8 weeks and have lost almost 7% body fat. It trains you not only to exercise and eat properly but also to control emotional eating and be completely disciplined about your weight loss. The routines are challenging and fun as well as self motivating.
This is NOT for nagging, whiny people (which I'm guessing is the case of the negative reviewers). To make it here you have to be strong, determined and extremely positive. If you have lofty goals for yourself and are willing to hear the truth and do what it takes to reach them, you have come to the right place.
The staff is very knowledgeable, encouraging, motivating and fun. I love UBS and highly recommend it.
Best Workout Experience Ever! Results to Prove it! – I have to say I've been to many Gyms and Fitness clubs and none have given me the results and knowledge that I have gained at Ron Lyons Ultimate Body Studio. I've done all the diets you can think of and worked out in all the gyms but at UBS its how it gets done. I've gone from 36% Body Fat to 19% in 5 months with incredible results. The workouts are never boring as there is new challenge everytime. Ron and his instructors are as committed trainers as I've ever met. They don't take lame excuses and tell you how it is which is exactly what I needed and anyone who's been struggling to get fit needs. A nice kick in the butt. The gym is exactly what a gym should be have the tools you need to reach your goals. I was a member of a spa/fitness club in Plano which was all for show and paid 1000 for a personal trainer for 1 month! I was stupid. Lost 2 pounds. I could have done this for 1 year. So if you are thinking about it. Do it! Call me and I'll share my story with you. 972-567-9442.
