I love, love, love Samara's ability to scrutinize the text and guide me into creating finer, more compelling work. And the performance warm ups (relaxation/concentration) prepare me to deliver!

There are a few things I believe sets me apart from most personal training services. I genuinely care, you are not just a number. If you are successful in achieving your goals it brings me personal fulfillment. I started working with my own personal trainer for 2 years so I truly understand what it's like to be on the other side, the possible reservations you may have, and how challenging it can be to get motivated. If you choose to work with me, I will help you work through any obstacles you may have and do all that I can to keep you motivated. I will help you build and maintain a long term lifestyle change in which eating healthy and exercise becomes a part of your daily routine that you truly enjoy.

About Josh

Hey, I'm Josh, I got into personal training because I saw the benefits it provided me as a client and I wanted to help others achieve those same benefits. At the time I was 15 I was short pudgy out of shape and zero confidence in myself, I got a trainer for a couple of years and over the course of

I took training sessions with Josh in the gym and now in his home after the gyms closed due to Covid. He is personable, supportive, and very educated. He has a great sense of humor as well! He took the time to get to know me and my needs and struggles and always comes up with appropriate exercises to focus on my goals and can quickly adapt new routines whenever I have had injuries. He is wonderful to work with!
John C Stuart
I started training with Josh 3 years ago. I was grossly over weight and nervous about joining a gym. I lost 40 pounds with his training, guidance and diet suggestions. He truly believes in what he does and has made a big difference in my physical health. This led me to feel better mentally which goes hand in hand. Highly recommended.
Sharon Carl
Josh is great to work with. He was our trainer before COVID closed our gym. We are so happy he decided to offer us the opportunity to train on-line. My husband comes to my office and we do our training together. Josh gives us a workout that keeps us healthy and focused. Josh knows the areas that we need to work on and provides coaching that is challenging and affirming. We highly recommend Josh either online or in person.

"Baruk is one of the best trainers I've had for learning how to not only condition my strength more but also to learn self defense and boxing techniques. I feel great everytime I leave his class and I look forward to the next one. He pushes you to succeed in the workouts he gives you and little by little with time you see yourself improving week after week. I've been going once a week for a few months and I feel such a difference in my strength and I'm seeing results. I take what I learn and I also apply them to when I go to the gym on my own on certain workouts he gives me. I definitely recommend him!"

"I've only been working with Ron for a little over a month now but he is an excellent instructor. He is very knowledgeable, detail oriented, and easy to learn from. He knows what pace of instruction works and he doesn't try to rush through anything. Also, I find it helpful how he can relate the forms to a practical martial arts use which helps me to better understand. He frequently reminds me that my Tai Chi Chuan is great for where I'm at which is a powerful reinforcement. It encourages me to continue to practice and improve daily. I recommend Ron to anyone who is ready to start learning and discover the benefits of Tai Chi Chuan."

"Dennis is extremely knowledgeable in his art. He is very patient, and not only shows you how to execute a move, but why to do it. He will challenge you, but you will not leave empty handed. Unlike some other instructors, he will not wait until you have been attending class for months to teach defenses against weapons. It is not uncommon to learn knife and gun defenses your first class. Take one of his classes and give Krav Maga a try. Something you learn there may very well save your life."
