What Tony’s Clients Say:
After having surgery on my neck last year, I joined the Center to rebuild strength and flexibility. Initially, I was working with another trainer but then chose to work with Tony. After our first session, he explained things about functionality that my physical therapist and others had not. His fitness routines utilize the whole body to assure balance. The personalized attention Tony gives me has been well worth the investment. I am confident with Tony as my trainer. He listens and often asks for feedback. He gauges my fatigue level and knows exactly how far to challenge me without overdoing it. He helps me stay focused, and keeps workouts interesting by varying the exercises. After six months, my upper-body strength has increased a great deal. My muscle tone improved and I even lost a few inches in my waistline. I continue to work with Tony and look forward to our sessions.
