Why our Trainers are the BEST!

I have been working with trainer Tony Rodgers for several months now.  I had good expectations coming in, and now I can say they've been met and then some.  I began training with a couple of nagging injuries and in worse physical shape than I imagined.   I'm very happy with the result thus far, and as I soon become an alumni, I will even likely continue with training moving forward.  I hope and expect these same results for anyone considering the training programs with the RecWell center.

 - Jamie

My current trainer, Jason listens, encourages and challenges me to give  my all. He has helped me develop my mind set in a positive way and I have changed from a person who thinks I can to - I know I can!

- Jose Lebrun

I know that I would never have achieved the level of fitness and wellness I have if not for the personal attention given in my training sessions. Jason is always very encouraging and has a vast knowledge of his profession.

- Current Patron

I would recommend Recwell’s personal training program in a heartbeat. I now aim to continue to train and maintain a good level of fitness with his help and achieve all my fitness goals!
