Meet Our Trainers

I highly recommend my YMCA personal trainer, he has really helped me become physically stronger. He has provided me with months of progressive and interesting workouts. He is very knowledgeable, friendly, encouraging and motivating. Investing in a personal trainer has been one of the best things I’ve done for myself and it has definitely improved my overall health and wellbeing.”

Pamela Brown, Trainee

“Joining the Y for the sole purpose of working with a personal trainer is the best decision I have made in a long time!

My personal trainer is an excellent trainer and motivator. She is supportive, encouraging, friendly, and has a great sense of humour. She always asks how I am doing and seeks feedback during every session.

A testament to how much I’m enjoying the personal training is the fact that I haven’t missed a session. It’s been such a rewarding experience that I have signed up for an extended programme!

Go raibh maith agat!”

Rose Marie Mysers Veitch, Trainee

When I registered for my first half marathon I decided to hire a personal trainer to help me prepare for the race. I honestly couldn’t have chosen a better trainer than my YMCA personal trainer. During our initial consultation I asked for a sport-specific, diversified program and he’s delivered in spades. In fact, he’s exceeded my expectations by presenting new (and fun!) routines each time we meet.

It’s obvious that my YMCA personal trainer has a genuine interest in helping me meet my fitness goals. He’s full of enthusiasm and encouragement, and is constantly cheering me on to reach my full potential (even if it means jumping in and doing the last set of squats or push-ups with me). I’ve tried many times to do my own strength routine but was never able to stick with it. Now that I’m working with my YMCA personal trainer, I actually look forward to going to the gym! He helps me get the most out of every workout and the improvement in both my overall fitness and my running performance is striking. My YMCA personal trainer’s extensive knowledge, coupled with his positive attitude, make him an absolute joy to work with.”

Valerie Francis, Trainee

“This note is a testament to the expert personal training skills and abilities of my YMCA personal trainer. I started to work with him in mid-November, 2014. Quite frankly, up to then, I had been doing my own workouts in the same way and without seeing any improvements at all.

That quickly changed with my YMCA personal trainer! He quickly diagnosed my strength limitations and worked with me to build greater strength, flexibility and endurance. I am astounded about the amount of improvement I have experienced. I am performing exercises I never felt would ever be within my personal capability and the impact has been tremendous. I appreciate the care my YMCA personal trainer takes to ensure I am using the right techniques and to prevent injury. I also know he takes great care to carefully plan each session so that I experience improvement in each session.

As a bonus, my YMCA personal trainer is such a great person – very motivating, a great sense of humour, and just pure fun to work with. I look forward to every session with him. I feel very fortunate indeed that he was my assigned personal trainer. Thanks!”

Jane Pardy, Trainee

“My YMCA personal trainer is a professional, knowledgeable, positive, energetic, and humorous personal trainer!

He provides me with dynamic workouts and encourages me to try new things. Because of his training, I am stronger and healthier. He knows when to encourage and when to push, yet never too much. The results I have achieved are largely due to my YMCA personal trainer’s combination of diverse training methods, individualized exercise programs, and challenging yet achievable goals. When I could not manage something, he would provide a variation that allowed me to build up to the full exercise. When I thought I could not do something, it was broken down to help me accomplish it. He places a high value on correct form with every exercise and helped me understand the importance of correct form. My program is devised to allow me to progress to more and more advanced exercises, and I am amazed at what I can now lift, press, and push. My overall fitness and strength is improved so much that I am able to perform exercises I would never have attempted on my own. His safe and effective exercise programs, and friendly personality creates a relaxed and comfortable environment. He makes each workout challenging and interesting. He motivates me to push past my perceived limits to achieve results. I have learnt so much from my YMCA personal trainer, he is willing to share his expert knowledge and answer any questions. I really appreciate how he listens to what I want to achieve and designs a varied and challenging workout program for me. He works me hard, and it would have been easy to give up, but his motivation and enthusiasm is a driving force to help me persevere and challenge my abilities. I trust and value his guidance.

My YMCA personal trainer is a truly exceptional trainer. He is enthusiastically committed to his work and ultimately his clients!
