Pat’s Success Stories
Patrick applied his advanced technical competencies to diagnose my strength imbalances and flexibility shortcomings. He prescribed an individualized program that has been effective in helping me achieve my strength, mobility, and body composition goals. He continues to coach me on how to properly execute the various new movements and exercises we do. Patrick proved to me his skill as a trainer when I was struggling with consistency between sessions. He figured out how to hold me accountable and motivate me to do what he laid out for me. I’ve had a great return on investment through working with Patrick. I was shocked when Nurse Gina told me how many pounds of fat I lost, and pounds of muscle I gained, during my recent health screening. Others have commented on my progress. It’s been really nice seeing my clothes fitting better and definition in my arms and shoulders that wasn’t there before. Most of all, I am pleased I was able to reduce my blood pressure. And, the intermittent knee and back pain that restricted me on occasion over the past 15+ years has completely subsided. Patrick never gave up on me. He continues to believe in me and support me on my fitness journey, which is proving to be both fun and rewarding!
I have been training with Pat for over two years. I’ve learned more in those two years with him than during my forty years of going to the gym overall. Every session is new and fresh. He teaches proper form, and shows genuine interest in his clients.
I just completed a three-month training program with Patrick. I joined the Center after an injury related to bicycling. Through Patrick’s assessment, knowledge, and patience, he developed a weight/core strengthening and stretching program to help me avoid injuries during athletic activities. I will continue the fitness program he created for me. I highly recommend Patrick as a trainer.
Pat recognizes my physical limitations, which I believe are age-related. With his direction and patience, I have achieved many fitness goals. One of Pat’s numerous talents is his ability to immediately address any pain and discomfort I may experience during exercise. Pat applied his knowledge of physical therapy to help relieve my back pain. My primary-care doctor was so impressed he suggested I keep training with Pat. Pat helps his clients achieve fitness goals with his talent, patience, and great personality.
Patrick became my trainer in July 2018, after my trainer at that time left the Center. I was immediately relieved because the transition to a new trainer was stress-free. Training with Patrick is never boring or routine. He is focused and passionate about his craft. With compassion, he listens about my physical issues and concerns, and addresses them. Patrick ensures all moves are properly and safely completed. He challenges me to work harder without being pushy. His positive attitude and energy always motivate me. He makes me want to succeed in my training and attempts at wellness. Patrick’s professionalism, education, and certifications are evident daily as my overall strength and physical performance continues to improve. He always focuses on new and improved methods to meet my training needs. He also seeks out advice from other staff professionals. I am happy Patrick is my trainer. I could not ask for more!
I joined the Center in 2017. I realized I needed help to achieve my fitness goals. I sought the expertise of a personal trainer and met Patrick. I found him extremely knowledgeable and patient. He motivates me each week to work toward my overall health and wellness goals. I feel stronger now. I look forward to continuing my fitness journey with Patrick’s guidance.
I had the great pleasure of working with Patrick for several months while he helped me achieve my fitness goals. I was most impressed by the time Patrick spent with me up front, asking questions and actively listening to my responses to fully understand my goals. Patrick’s workouts are challenging, quick, fun, and very focused. He advances my fitness plan by encouraging me to do my best at every session. He also shares useful tips and information so I can learn more about fitness. I always enjoyed the workouts and looked forward to my twice weekly sessions with Patrick who is consistently upbeat and motivating. His professionalism, extensive knowledge, and enthusiastic commitment to his work and clients provide the perfect scenario for success. Training with Patrick is a wonderful, rewarding experience!
Patrick has been my trainer for a little more than nine months. I am very happy with the results: weight loss, muscle gain, and a boost in confidence. I learned new weightlifting techniques, cardio exercises, and warm-up drills. In the time Patrick has been my trainer, I increased the amount of races I typically run. I also signed up for my first half marathon. Patrick taught me the importance of stretching, recovery, and working areas runners need in order to excel. With his training, my pace has gotten faster and my recovery time has decreased. Additionally, Patrick is very knowledgeable in strength training and conditioning. He knew the answers to all my questions, and shared explanations. You can tell he is passionate about fitness. He encourages you to be your best. You’ll have fun seeing the progress.
All my life, I had a nagging injury that plagued me. Physical therapy and chiropractic treatments helped but the injury always resurfaced. Many times through the years, I would be in pain and agony. I came to the Center by chance. Then, I started to train with Patrick. He is an excellent trainer who is very focused. He challenges me but never pushes more than I am capable of doing. I feel stronger and pain-free. Exercise was never my favorite. However, it feels good to be pain-free. Also, I have osteoporosis and we are working on that. It is amazing what can be accomplished with such an excellent trainer.
Patrick helps me fight back against age, aches and pains, and multiple orthopedic surgeries. For me, Patrick’s background in physical therapy is his greatest strength. He helps me improve my strength and balance while reducing my pain. He listens well, asks pertinent questions, and carefully observes movement. The workouts he creates are cohesive. They complement, rather than duplicate, what I do in Group Fitness classes. He builds from one set of exercises to another as I master a skill set. In addition, Patrick is always positive and supportive. I have a long way to go. I am confident Patrick can help me get there!
Pat is very supportive and encouraging. He has helped me a great deal. I see the benefits from training with him.
I have been training with Patrick for the past year. His high standards challenge me to work harder than I believed possible. He is focused and results-driven, which sets the tone for my workouts. Patrick customized a program for me to reach my own fitness goals, along with additional goals he set for me. Everything is possible with his direction. He has multiple certifications and his college degree, which further qualifies him to analyze and correct my every move. Previously, I wasn’t able to do a particular exercise with a weighted bar. He zeroed in on what caused the problem and showed me steps to correct it so I could accomplish the exercise. He is talented and smart, and loves to share his knowledge. I can’t say enough good things about Patrick.
