I've been training with Travis for a few months now. One thing in particular that has stood out to me is that he genuinely cares; he is truly invested in helping assist his clients achieve their fitness and lifestyle goals. In addition to having been a personal trainer for many years, his longstanding career as an EMT has certainly benefited him well and enhanced his knowledge of the body, strains, and working with injury. His session exercises are specifically chosen to maximize results but if you need an alternative exercise or one to be modified he has the know-how. Whether you're a serious lifter or out-of-shape beginner, he has the knowledge, experience, and dedication to get you on the right path.
I believe it's because of the above that he has come to build a small community of sorts amongst his clients. When I first started training with Travis, I was introduced to several other female clients and each one was not only inspirational in how far they've come in their fitness journeys, but they had also formed friendships with one another and train together often. Their invitations to train with them outside of my sessions helped to reduce my gym anxiety and support the building of confidence from which Travis helped me to re-establish.
Lastly, Travis practices his own advice, and I think that's one of the best things any professional can do. He believes that fitness and health is a lifestyle, and doesn't end outside of the gym. Diet, sleep, life stresses, and work all contribute to one's overall physical (and mental) health. Travis encourages his clients to make themselves a priority and give their body and mind the self-care that is necessary in order to not only be healthy, but genuinely happy as well. I could not imagine a more wonderful trainer to have started my gym and fitness journey with. To anyone that is considering whether or not you should do this, my advice is to just go for it: you deserve to be the best version of yourself possible and to have a supportive, knowledgeable, and experienced professional alongside you in the process. That professional is Travis 🙂
