“I play a lot of tennis and have always done various sorts of exercise. But never personal training. An acquaintance turned me on to Marc at UPT and it has been a blast working with him for the past few months.
I love to play tennis, run and do a variety of exercise classes. In the last couple years though, I have gained a bit of unwanted pounds and I felt like I was weaker in general with various aches and pains. (Hip, shoulder, foot and neck pain) It seemed like the more I tried to exercise, the more little injuries popped up.
Marc has been great for me. I tend to overdo things, exercise being one of them. Marc has taught me that I don’t have to kill myself in the effort of seeing great results. I don’t have to do a million crunches, pulling neck muscles in the process, to get my core the way I want it to look. He has shown me new ways to stretch to prevent injury and new strategies toward my exercise regime that have shown results that I am very happy with. He has shown me that I really don’t have to be in complete and utter pain/exhaustion to accomplish the goals I am trying to achieve…losing some weight, fitting better in my clothing and feeling better overall, pain free.
I have lost the weight I wanted to lose. I am stronger and definitely quicker on the tennis court. But probably most important is that my aches and pain are way more minimal to what they were when I started with Marc. He finds a great balance for me in terms of pushing myself but not overdoing it. It has been a great experience for me working out at UPT.
