"I've worked with Brian Calkins & his staff for several years and really enjoy his style of fitness training.  He provides an excellent balance of fitness knowledge with a relaxed and enjoyable training atmosphere.

Brian pays careful attention to individual needs and fitness goals. Under his direction I'm motivated to push myself a little harder and am always surprised when our time is up!  I'm impressed by the thoroughness and accessibility of Brian's recently completed book "Burn Body Fat the Right Way ."  

In selecting Brian as my fitness trainer, my husband and I have found an engaging and enthusiastic partner in fitness - we're having the time of our lives!"

Hi Brian,

"Just thought I would give you an update on how I am doing in terms of numbers...

In the beginning of December I was at 29% Body Fat and weighed 134lbs...

As of yesterday, I am at 20% Body Fat and weigh 128lbs.  I am extremely pleased with your program.

If you remember, I had pretty good success with Body for Life, or so I thought.  At the end of that 1st "challenge" I was at 18-19% Body Fat, and only 117lbs.  I was tired, sore and hungry a lot.  I did not know how to eat properly for my growing muscle and I am sure that by the end, I was tearing into muscle tissue for energy.   I looked skinny and did not have the muscle I thought I would.  Needless to say, it was hard to maintain and after a couple of years, the weight slowly started coming back. Thank goodness I came across your website.

Under your direction, I have come to understand so much more about eating properly and exercise, you have filled in the gaps that you cannot get from reading a diet article or book.

Thank you again for sharing your knowledge."

-Marianne Gossard, Mason OH

Dear Brian,

"Just a note to say thank you.  Now that our 16 weeks are officially over I wanted you to know that as of yesterday I have lost 27 pounds!  That is great for me.  I haven't been able to stick to the exercise 100% the last week or so but I haven't deviated from the way of eating so I think that is what is really helping. I leave for Hilton Head next Sunday and that scares me a little but my plan is to come back and get right back into it.   

Thank you again for being so nice and helping me.  It was a great experience for me to prove that I can really still loose this weight even though I'm old! 

Good luck to you and your son in college and also to you and your wife and your new little one on the way."

-Toni Brezinski, Monroe OH

American Council on Exercise Personal Trainer of the Year Says...

Brian and his team of trainers understand more than exercise - they understand how to make exercise a part of your life.  They care not just about making the most effective exercise program, they care about making a program that works for your goals and works to make you better in every other area of life.  When you are more fit, you are a better worker, spouse, friend, parent - a better person overall.  Brian's team at HealthStyle Fitness also is keenly aware of the fact that you have many responsibilities and interests outside of your exercise program that place demands on you.  They help you find the right amount of exercise for the time you have so you can maximize your fitness efforts for maximum results without having workouts take over your life.  They care about your workout program, but more importantly, they care how well it fits your life. 

If I lived in Cincinnati , Brian's team would be the trainers I worked with!
