"I started working with Brian over the summer to prepare for my second year of collegiate soccer this fall. I went into the season being more prepared than I've ever been. My fitness improvement was very noticeable and even resulted in improved soccer skills. Brian's motivation and encouragement pushed me to achieve greater results than I could have done on my own."
MARK AND BARBARA
"We are a husband and wife team who utilizes all aspects of the studio: buddy training, group training, single sessions and boot camp. We have been training with Brian for over four years and are highly committed to Brian and his philosophy of fitness. We also participate in a high energy, early morning boot camp with Homer. We benefit greatly from training in these different settings as each approach keeps us active, engaged and with staying power. Every workout is unique and well designed and provides challenging routines that address coordination, balance, strength, endurance, flexibility and cardiovascular health. You would think that it would be difficult to address our unique health issues at the same time (Barbara’s osteoporosis and Mark’s cerebral palsy), but on the contrary, Brian and Homer design our workouts that are mindful of these issues, while we build greater confidence and achieve improved levels of conditioning. Further, the trainers keep safety and injury prevention a high priority. One cannot deny the mind body connection – Brian’s upbeat, positive and motivating personality keeps us energized, committed and focused on incorporating healthy behaviors into our lifestyle. When we travel and miss our workouts with Brian and Homer, we typically feel that something is missing both physically and mentally – we hardly can wait to get back into our routine at the studio where we can regain that sense of well-being and vitality."
"I started working out with Brian in January with the original goal of fitting into a dress. Even though I have always been a healthy eater, age has somehow started woring against me. Brian had designed a program that would help me attain my goals. Having a personal trainer was probably the best thing that I have done in a long time. Now, I feel really good!"
Carla is awesome. When I started with Carla two years ago, I just wanted to stave off the effects of aging. Carla honed in on my technique (I now do impeccable push-ups) and methodologically built my strength. She taught me how to challenge myself physically and to have fun with my workouts. I discovered how to tame stress in all new ways. Carla explains the why, what and how of every exercise. Thank you, Carla, for teaching me about the athlete within and for coaching me towards physical and mental strength! You really are awesome.
"BC Wellness is a place where every person receives expert, caring, and personalized training. Everyone is welcome here, no matter your age or fitness. After five years training with Brian, I’ve seen an amazing transformation in my fitness level. I’ve lost weight, gained muscle and have become stronger and more confident. Brian develops a personalized, challenging workout every time, but makes sure it is not too much that your workout would cause an injury. He also stresses maintaining and improving balance and coordination. Brian and Carla have created a fun, positive and welcoming environment for anyone who wants to improve their fitness and overall health. I really enjoy meeting and sharing experiences with the other clients, too."
"I trained with Brian for almost six months, and it was the first time I had worked out with a personal trainer. Not only is Brian a superb trainer with impressive credentials but also an individual who has remarkable interpersonal skills. He has a gentle spirit and is very compassionate about helping others improve the conditioning of their bodies. Because of the training I had with Brian, my running speed improved and my body became visibly toned."
"I have been working out with BC Health and Fitness for about two years now, and BC Health and Fitness has certainly changed my life. First, I have learned how to work harder at losing weight. Second, I have gained muscles. Third, I have learned how to eat correctly. Fourth, my self-confidence has grown a lot. And fifth, I am meeting great people with similar goals and desires. But most of all, it is nice to be in a smaller size."
"I trained with Brian this past summer to prepare me for collegiate cross country and track. I noticed my strength, speed, and endurance have increased leaps and bounds as a result of the training. The workouts tested me both physically and mentally and have done a great job increasing my fitness level. Brian really loves what he does and puts 100% effort into training you."
"After spinning my wheels for 18 months, I started training with Brian to lose weight, increase metabolism, and satisfy the cardiologist who wanted my cholesterol level below 150. I've achieved all goals thanks to Brian's knowledge and interest in improving my overall health. Brian has become more than a trainer; he's become my friend. The cardiologist indicated to never stop training with Brian."
"I started training with Brian 6 weeks after I had my daughter. I lost all the baby weight in 9 months and feel healthy and energetic. Brian taught me how to strength train properly and increase my speed during long runs. He also showed me how to strengthen my back and core, which has improved my posture. I recommend him to anyone! He is extremely knowledgeable, motivating, and caring.
"I started working with BC Health and Fitness about 5 months ago. My initial goal was to start losing weight, build muscle tone and get in good cardiac shape for as surgery I had scheduled. My doctors were amazed how much healthier I’d become in a few short months. Brian kept the workouts interesting, challenging, and dare I say, fun! I felt very comfortable that Brian was making sure I had good technique and customized the workout for some of the limitations I had."
"BC Health and Fitness has been a significant part of my choosing a healthy lifestyle. I have always wanted to be in the best shape possible and to get my health on track as I venture into my 40s. BC has provided me with the tools to make that change with exercise and nutrition counseling that I now find irreplaceable. I am finally on track to a new lifestyle, equipped to make choices to make me the best I can be for years to come. Thanks BC."
"I have worked out with BC Health and Fitness for a year or so now, and it has really helped me. I play a lot of sports, so I definitely need to get stronger for the upcoming season in high school. This program has really helped me to get stronger, faster, and much more conditioned. I set goals while working out and always seemed to accomplish and over pass those goals."
"I have had serious back problems for a long time now. I used to be very active in judo, but the pain took me away from practices. I figured that I was just out of my prime and had to deal with it. I started training with Brian a little over a year ago, and his perpetually positive attitude, encouragement, and experience have helped to put me back on track. I am now back in the dojo and throwing around some young bucks. A professional athlete who used to put food on his table as such, Brian knows what it takes to climb to the top!
"We found our wonderful Trainers by accident in OCT 2013. All because of the FITNESS SIGN on their bldg. When my daughter and I went for our first consult I thought we were joining a GYM. No... what has happened the last 6 months has been a huge BLESSING in my life. Brian, Carla and Homer are the Trainers that have changed my life forever. I thought my energy level was always good. But now 6 months later, I was really out of shape and never dreamed I could achieve what the Trainers have encouraged our fitness levels to be for us,. I look forward to our sessions and they are the highlight of my week now. I am very thankful for the beautiful energy the trainers always pass on to us. We all have a story that is part of our path we travel and I am so excited I have a new path with great trainers to follow now... THANK YOU AGAIN AND AGAIN"
"One blustering cold typical winter evening at the gym I had just completed yet another long, draining, yet ineffective workout. Much like every other weekday, I was sitting in the gym lobby, feeling my efforts to get more fit were completely futile. This day however, I was lucky enough to be approached by Brian, a highly regarded trainer. He told me he’d seen my workouts for quite some time now, and that with better technique, slight modification to my routine, and integration of more weight resistance training in my workout, I would see noticeably better results. Upon saying this, he noted my work ethic and that he saw potential in me as an athlete, more particularly, a runner. This was new to me, and I was flattered. I had never thought of myself as a real “athlete”, and most certainly not a runner. But from that moment on, I had a new source of momentum, an encouraging mentor, and a fresh sense of determination, all derived from Brian. My new attitude was not the only thing which I had acquired while working with Brian. In just one session with him I had learned so much about the proper, healthy ways to train. In no time I had more energy for my workouts, a better body, and prolific workouts. Besides being a coach, Brian has served as a mentor to me since the minute he first introduced himself in the gym lobby. Because of his countless and enlivening discussions with me, his ideologies and advice have played a prominent role in my life, ameliorating my lifestyle both physically and mentally. He taught me that you can’t let yourself look back on life and regret doing something you wanted to. To this day, I continue to train with Brian, but now for a different reason - track. I am now a member of my high school’s track team, something which I would have never ventured if not for Brian’s faith in me. Running is now a huge part of my life, and I gladly attribute a great deal of this to Brian Wilson."
