I made the mistake of purchasing a month of training through Groupon for this company. After numerous, emails directly to them, phone calls, and questions on how to reserve a training spot on their website forums I never received any answer or response. This continued for several months until my time to redeem the deal expired. I was very, very disappointed with this company. I would not recommend wasting your time and money on it.
The best boot camp In Atlanta. Dez pushes you and always comes up with new exercises daily. I highly recommend anyone looking to get into shape to join!!
Find a REAL bootcamp – I find it interesting that almost all the reviews of this bootcamp were written on or around 5/26/2010 - tells me they're probably not real reviews. I made the mistake of attending after reading these reviews and WOW - this wasn't real bootcamp. Sorry, people, but if you think this one is actually good (or even acceptable) you need to try one of the many REAL bootcamps around Atlanta.
The instructor has no idea how to motivate people. He didn't try to learn anyone's name and half the time he sat on the grass facing AWAY from our class while we ran up and down a hill. Hill workouts are great, but I'm paying to be pushed. How about you get up off your a$$ and run with us? Or encourage the people falling behind?
Also, I was under the impression we'd be outside - using things around us for our workout. No. Two days a week were held inside the hell of all malls - Gwinnett Place Mall. The store he turned into a studio was dirty and disgusting. Not a place I wanted to lie down and do ab work - I'd much rather be on the ground in the park where birds and dogs...well, you know what they do.
I could keep going on here, but that's pointless. This bootcamp sucks. Period. It has the potential to be OK if the owner would put a little effort into it, though. Small changes would make a huge difference.
THE ULTIMATE WORKOUT EXPERIENCE – As most people know, starting a workout program can be hard. And even harder when you feel like you aren't having fun. Well, Body Firm Atl definitely sets the fitness standard by providing a versatile workout program, bringing life to it through creative means and just making it an enjoyable experience.
I also appreciate how the trainers show regard for other aspects that influence my results such as eating habits. (Most times we are allowed 1 cheat day)
This is 'THE ULTIMATE' workout experience.
Great experience – Before participating, I was skeptical of my abilities. Dez pushed me to do things I haven't been able to do in years. With his help and the support of my fellow participants, I wad happy to see results!
Reshaping body and life – I have attended many boot camps but it was much different working with Dez. I came in thinking I could just do the bare minimum, lose a little weight and all was good. NOT! He didn't tolerate my slack and kept pushing me to realize that I could accomplish allot if I pressed. The workouts were excellent, just when you thought you could handle it, Dez would change it and take you to the next level. The monitoring and constantly writing down what you were eating each day was invaluable. I would avoid eating junk, just because I didn't want to hear Dez's mouth the next morning :)
If you follow his lead - the results he promises are the results you will get. Definately a positive lifestyle change!
Life Changing – I am a working mother with two kids who never thought that I had time to work out. Dez White's Body Firm has changed that for me. During my first workout with him, I thought that I would not finish his class, but Dez gave me the motivation and inspiration to keep pushing through each exercise. I built up my confidence little by little at each session and now I actually enjoy coming to my workouts!
I never get bored because Dez never does the same workout twice. This is something I value and that I have never found anywhere else. I love coming to his classes not only because of Dez but because of the great people that I meet there that are just like me...trying to reach a goal.
Dez is the absolute best trainer that I have ever had. He makes me feel like I am getting a celebrity workout at a Wal-Mart price. His classes are always creative, challenging and educational. He will even develop a personalized fitness plan to help with your problem areas and combine that with his nutritional plan. To top it all off he has a great personality that will help you get through any workout no matter how hard.
I have made a lifetime commitment to myself to continue working out with Dez because of the results that I have seen. As long as you put in the work Dez will guide you to your goal. After only six weeks of working out with Dez I lost 2.5 inches from my waist, 1 inch from hips, and two inches off my thighs. This has been a life changing experience and I can't wait to find out how many more inches I have lost! See you at the next workout.
Pain is just weakness leaving the body! – I gained a lot of weight from college and starting my career and I felt like there just wasn't enough hours in the day to have a good work out routine. Dez completely changed my view of that.
The Body Firm is not a regular bootcamp. It's really is a lifestyle change. There are a lot of different class times and the variety of exercises really keep you motivated and focused. I came into The Body Firm unsure of if I could keep it up because I was totally out of shape but Dez made it so easy through constant feedback, encouragement and just an all around knowledge of different body types and how to do what's best for you. I love it!
You will surprise yourself! – I've have been to several fitness boots camps and The Body Firm is by far the Best!
My first day of boot camp I thought was going to be a breeze. Boy was I wrong, I was out of breathe before I even finished the warm up. Dez is a great trainer, each workout is different then the last and he will push you during every workout from beginning to end. His motto is "Don't cheat yourself". Everyday I surprise myself more and more on how much more in shape I'm becoming
So for all of your who have been cheating on your diets and putting off getting in shape, Don't cheat yourself another day! The Body Firm is just what you need to meet all of your personal and fitness goals.
Get in shape fast! – Dez is an awesome trainer and I really enjoyed working out with him, even at 5:30am! I enjoyed it so much that I am starting back up next week!
His workouts are never the same, and they are even fun! This program is for people at all fitness levels, even those brand new to working out. Workouts consist of weights, running, games, drills, etc. You see results quickly, and have more energy than you thought possible.
The price is very reasonable and so worth it! Times and locations vary, so there is something that fits into everyones schedule! And, if you miss a class, you can double up the next day, or even go to one at a different time. If you are looking for a fun and exciting new workout with quick results- this is definitely where you need to be!
