Having worked with several trainers throughout my life and throughout my own career, Tony is by far the most knowledgeable, educated, and skilled fitness professional that I have worked with. From being a division 1scholarship lacrosse player, to competing in MMA, Muay Thai and boxing, Tony understands my competitive drive and desire to be pushed. He takes a personal investment into my goals and objectives. I have become stronger and fitter in a shorter period of time than I ever have been previously. Tony’s programming is top notch and has had such a positive effect on the way I look and feel.
I hope this letter finds you well! I joined KickedUp Fitness just a little over one year ago, April 2015. I did a lot of research on local gyms in the Annapolis area before signing up. Even researching online I felt a connection to your gym over all the others. It had a good vibe, gritty and real, which is extremely important to me. My intent was losing weight, strength training and getting in shape for the biggest trip of my life I was taking with friends to Peru. At that time it was one year away. I signed up for unlimited kickboxing classes and met Brenna.
Brenna and I started chatting after a class one morning and I told her what my goals were. Being impressed with her knowledge and motivation during the classes I was taking with her, I signed up for training sessions with her immediately. This was one of the best decisions I’ve made concerning my fitness and well being.
I trained with Brenna from May through November 2015, about twice per week and picked back up again in February 2016 for about 4 to 6 weeks before my trip in March. She was able to help me lose twenty pounds, over 20 inches, and pushed me to be able to accomplish what I thought at times may not be possible. She helped me to greatly increase my range of motion, to build muscle and strength. When I started, I could barely do jumping jacks, push-ups, etc. By March 2016, I was able to hike Incan stairs and mountains in the Andes with ease, one of the mountains, Waynu Picchu, is one of the 20 deadliest climbs in the world, and I did it! All of the step-ups, mountain climbers, squats, push-ups, dips, and HIIT training Brenna coached me on helped me to achieve my goals. I had a great time on my trip and I truly wouldn’t have been able to accomplish my goals on my own. Brenna is a true professional and knows her stuff. She’s funny, tough and to the point. I greatly appreciate that about her.
