Chelsea is our June Client of the Month!
Chelsea has been training with us since March 2023. After visiting numerous personal fitness websites, Chelsea chose EPT. She wanted results, and she got them very quickly. Her progress in a few short months has been nothing short of phenomenal. Chelsea lost 20 pounds, decreased her waist since by 5.5 inches and her hips size by 4 inches! These are major accomplishments. Any loss of visceral fat is life altering since visceral fat drives metabolic disease. Chelsea is now well on her way to better health.
Due to injuries from years as a competitive figure skater and a sedentary job, Chelsea wanted to get back in shape. Her primary goal was weight loss. She is one of EPT’s most dedicated clients. Chelsea has not missed a single session and never complains about difficult training routines.
Look at these additional accomplishments:
Plank: 56s. -> 2:30
Leg press: 225 -> 270
Push-up: 9 on 30” box -> 2 from floor
Chelsea is committed to an active lifestyle. For example, on the 4th of July she went whitewater rafting. With improvements to her knee, ankle and foot issues, Chelsea enjoys walks with her pit bull mix. She also went hiking recently in Virginia.
One new goal is to achieve one bodyweight pull-up. Will she do it? With her determination and positive attitude, there’s no doubt that Chelsea will achieve this goal and many others!
Virginia R. is our May 2023 Client of the Month!
Ginny began in-person training with EPT in August 2022. For quite some time, she has dealt with a condition that caused her left leg to lack full extension, resulting in atrophy of her calf. Since training with us, Ginny has increased her left leg’s range of motion and has also begun building muscle back in her calf!
Because of life’s challenges, Ginny uses exercise as a positive outlet and always feels better when she trains. She lights up a room just by walking in the door. Ginny’s enthusiasm is contagious. She is quick to compliment and encourage others.
Ginny recently moved to Virginia to be closer to her son and grandchildren. We now train with Ginny virtually. Although it was an adjustment at first, Ginny continues to stay consistent and engaged. Now that’s dedication!
Ginny’s goals included improving muscle mass, flexibility, and mental health – all of which she has achieved! Notice the improvement in her stats:
Single Leg Stand 15s - 1:00
Plank 3:00 - 4:10
Lat Pulldown 65lbs - 85lbs
Pushups (elevated) 15 reps - 26 reps
EPT is not the only one to be impressed with Ginny’s accomplishments. Her doctor is impressed as well. Once she lowered her blood pressure, the doctor cut her medication dose in half. Way to go, Ginny.
Ginny is the ideal client. She always wants to push the bar higher and expand her goals. We couldn’t be prouder of Ginny and her accomplishments. She is what EPT is all about!
Janine R. is our April 2023 Client of the Month
Janine has been training in-person at EPT since January 2023. Dealing with a multitude of debilitating medical conditions at a young age, she has confronted obstacles that would keep most of us on the sidelines. Not Janine. She doesn't give up. She perseveres!
Despite her daily challenges, Janine has prioritized her health and has rearranged her schedule so that training at EPT comes first. She is dedicated to training 3x per week. Janine never knows how she's going to feel from day to day, yet she always walks through our doors ready to do her best. This effort pays off because she always feels better after working out.
Janine's goals include getting stronger, increasing stamina, and becoming more functional in daily movements. Dealing with various disorders and chronic illness, she aims to get back to living a more normal life with less discomfort. Let’s look at her progress in just three months:

Vince G. is our March 2023 Client of the Month
Vince has been training virtually at EPT since June 2022. He has a very demanding job as a DOD Program Manager, but that hasn’t stopped him from consistently training twice weekly. He always brings an enthusiastic attitude no matter how tired he may be from work stress. Knowing that he feels more energized after a workout motivates Vince to keep attending his virtual sessions.
Vince’s goals for training have been to increase lean muscle mass, improve strength and prioritize health. He admits he never enjoyed exercise before and always avoided it. Not now. Vince is confident in his ability to maintain a routine and enjoys pushing himself to new heights. Let’s look at some truly impressive increases:
Leg Press 230lbs > 495lbs
Lat Pulldown 77.5lbs > 122.5lbs
Pushups 16 (regular) > 30 (bosu instability disc)

Vince, congratulations on your hard work. It's paid off. You demonstrate what can be attained through diligence and consistency. We know there will be even more achievements, and EPT will be there cheering you on!
Janine is our February 2023 client of the month!
Janine has been training at EPT since September 2021. She has never missed a single session. This dedicated client tackles everything with an amazing “can-do” attitude. Obstacles don’t defeat Janine –they challenge her.
Janine’s programs fluctuate between high intensity interval training and bodybuilding. No matter if she’s engaged in circuit training or lifting heavy weights, Janine is always one of the hardest workers in the room.
Most clients relish their breaks. Not Janine. She detests rest intervals and would rather keep working.
Despite serious health setbacks this past year, Janine has persevered and emerged stronger and more resilient. Take a look at her progress:
Leg Press 95lbs > 275lbs
Lat Pulldown 50lbs > 85lbs
Pushup 13 (on knees) > 14 (full reps on feet)
Arms Increased 1.25 inches
Waist Decreased 5 inches
Hips Increased 2.5 inches
Janine has also been one of our most compliant clients regarding nutrition. After several weeks of nutrition counseling with her trainer, Janine switched to eating 3 meals of whole food per day with healthy, sustainable snacks in between. She also improved her supplement regimen and feels the best she has in years!
Great job, Janine. It is an absolute pleasure to witness your hard work pay off. Keep on your path to success!
Dan is our January 2023 client of the month!
Dan has been training at EPT since June 2022. A retired Marine Corps Advisor, Dan works full-time as a police detective and a member of the SWAT team. Between two active teenagers and taking jiu-jitsu twice a week, you’d think Dan would be busy enough. Yet he is dedicated to training at EPT.
Dan’s areas of focus include injury prevention, cardiovascular health and strength training. One of Dan’s original goals was “bullet-proofing” his back. The frequency of his back issues has diminished, plus Dan has improved fitness metrics across the board. Here are some great examples:
Sit & Reach 0”-> 17”
Back Extensions 10”->20”
Leg Press 360lbs->545lbs
Lat Pull-Down 160”->190lbs
Training with EPT keeps Dan in tip-top shape for a very important and demanding job – keeping the public safe. Dan, thank you for your service on the job and your work ethic in the gym! We appreciate you. It’s a pleasure to train someone so motivated. Congratulations on your success. We know you’ll keep on crushing your goals!
Nick is our December 2022 client of the month!
Nick has been training at EPT since June of 2022. Nick had a sedentary lifestyle and the demanding operational management role in his family business. He came to us initially looking to improve his overall health, decrease body fat, and increase lean muscle mass. The quality of his life literally depended on achieving these goals since his hemoglobin A1c level was 6.7 – full-blown diabetic.
Nick has since committed to training at EPT 3x/week, and despite his demanding schedule, has been as consistent as they come! Due to his incredible work ethic, motivation, and drive to improve his health, Nick has accomplished a life-altering feat of having lowered his hemoglobin A1C into a normal range to a 5.6!
He's also lost 15lbs along his journey in a very sustainable manner, coming in at just under 200lbs! One of Nick's best qualities is his ability to heed advice and take action. We are so excited for your progress Nick, and it's been such a pleasure having you as part of our family at EPT! Keep crushing your goals as we partner together to improve the quality of your life and extend your longevity.
Ilene is our November 2022 client of the month!
Ilene has been training with us at Elite Personal Training since February of 2022. Since then, she has trained 3 times every week and hasn’t missed one session. She is one of our hardest working clients and never shies away from a challenge. Let’s look at what all that hard work has done for her over the past 9 months:
Leg Press – 120lbs -> 425lbs
Lat Pull-Down – 50lbs -> 80lbs
Push Ups – 20 incline on barbell -> 15 on the ground (YES REAL PUSH UPS!)
But it doesn’t stop there, her measurement changes are even better!
Weight - down 8.8lbs
Arms - increase 1" - 10.5" -> 11.5"
Chest - decreased 3"
Waist - decreased 3.5"
Hips - increased 2"
These numbers tell us that while Ilene lost a healthy 8.8lbs in 9 months, she gained a tremendous amount of muscle in her arms and butt. Way to go Ilene, you’re an inspiration to all of us!
Eshowe is our October 2022 client of the month!
Eshowe, otherwise known as Eppy, began training with us in February 2022 due to an encouraging push by her son and just like anyone else was apprehensive about starting exercise. After a few months of consistency, she grew more comfortable with an exercise routine and now even looks forward to coming to each session. Since then, she has decreased her waist circumference by 4 inches and dropped about 6 lbs.
One of the main goals she wanted to improve was her balance because her vision is very impaired. She went from a 5s. modified tandem stand to now almost 3 minutes! She also went from a 45s. incline plank to now almost 2 minutes! So not only has her balance improved but so has her strength which is extremely important because did I mention Eppy is over 90 years old!? Wow, it's amazing to see such progress at this stage in her life. I think it's safe to say we all want to be like Eppy when we're her age!
Aimee T. is our September 2022 client of the month!
She began training with us in March 2022. Because she lives out-of-state, Aimee trains virtually. Can this be done? Yes, it can. Aimee was initially skeptical about getting results without any equipment or in-person guidance. After the initial evaluation, EPT discussed ways to accommodate virtual training and sent her a box of equipment. In just six weeks, Aimee made remarkable progress.
Thanks to a creative and flexible trainer, regular attendance, an enthusiastic attitude, and impeccable eating habits, Aimee dropped 14 lbs and decreased her waist circumference by 2.5 inches. In addition, she improved her strength and endurance by going from 0 to 28 pushups with good form and increased her plank from just under 2 minutes to over 7 minutes! Awesome.
Aimee comes to every session ready and eager to train. She’s game for every exercise thrown at her (even planks)!
Joe F. is our August 2022 client of the month!
Joe consistently trains three times per week at EPT and comes into every session with an amazing attitude and outlook on training. He begins every session eager to initiate his warm-ups and tackle the workout. Joe has improved his performance in the following ways: Lat Pulldown increase from 115
pounds to 145 pounds; DB Bench Press increase from 60 pounds to 100 pounds; and Leg Press increase from 360 pounds to 450 pounds. Joe is also looking to further improve his health and fitness. He will begin to learn safe and sustainable ways to enhance his nutrition. This will help to supplement all the amazing progress he’s made with exercise. Keep kicking butt Joe!

Bill began training with us in February 2022 and has been trending in the right direction ever since. He trains three times per week virtually via Facetime and the results have been staggering.

Keep up the great work Bill. The sky is the limit!

This included: 63 reps of 63 lbs. on the leg press, 63s. on the plank wheel, 63s. tandem stand, 63s. of step-ups, 63 pilates, and 63 mountain climbers! Her strength, range of motion, and balance have progressed tremendously since she first started at EPT.

You're doing a GREAT job Martha, keep going strong!
Jackie H is our May 2022 client of the month!
Like most of our clients, Jackie came in with goals that she wanted to get accomplished. Her primary goal was to lose fat and her secondary goal was to take care of her health. Jackie accomplished both of her goals and more! She is currently down more than 10 lbs, at peak athletic performance, and although she refuses to admit it, she has made major improvements in aspects of her health and fitness that she deemed impossible.
Her commitment, perseverance, and discipline are what makes Jackie the ideal candidate for the Client of the Month.

Sid is our April 2022 client of the month!
Sid originally came to EPT to rehabilitate his surgically constructed patellar tendon. After his successful rehab, we transitioned him into an individualized personal training and weight management program.
Sid went from ambulating with a knee brace and 2 crutches to jogging and becoming an unstoppable force at our fitness studio.
He has lost over 50lbs since first beginning personal training and can easily deadlift over 200lbs. As a father of 2 and a doctor by profession, he never lets anything get in the way of him bringing 1000% effort every time trains at EPT.
Way to go, Sid, keep up the excellent work

Since Janice started training at EPT, she gives it her all at every session! Proper training and form technique can be difficult but she is always looking to see how she can improve and be better. She is not only motivated but disciplined and this shows in her improvement of her plank time going from 1 minute to 5 and a half minutes! She not only has a strong mental mindset, but also has been able to improve her overall strength, flexibility, balance, and also decrease her waist circumference.
Keep up the great work Janice (our pb&j queen), we can’t wait to see what you accomplish next!
Lauren is our January 2022 client of the month!

She’s previously played several different sports, has an extremely strong work ethic, and is always up for a challenge. Her endurance and stamina are remarkable to watch because she was able to increase her 2-minute plank to over 10:30minutes! Her upper body strength has improved tremendously from not being able to do 1 pullup to doing 4 and also increasing her pushups 5-fold from 5 to 25! Not only has Lauren been progressing in all areas of fitness, but she is also seeing more muscle definition than she ever had before!
Keep up the great work Lauren, we can’t wait to see what goals you crush next!
Duncan Is Our December 2021 Client of the Month!
Duncan has been training with us for just a little more than one year and he is our first client to be the Client of the Month for a second time and this is well deserved! Duncan has been faithfully training three times per week and gives maximum effort and focus each and every session. Duncan not only trains hard but has also established excellent and sustainable eating patterns. What is the result of Duncan’s effort and hard work?
He has lost 20 pounds, packed on muscle, improved his flexibility, and has achieved 13.7% body fat. This percentage of body fat would be incredible for any individual, at any stage of life, but this is mind-boggling for a man in his sixth decade of life. He has absolutely crushed his goals of feeling and looking younger.
To celebrate his newfound health and fitness level, Duncan celebrated his 66th birthday by doing the following:
66 sit ups
66 second plank
The entire EPT is both proud of Duncan and thrilled for his success and we look forward to where the next year will take him!
Steve is our November 2021 client of the month!
Steve has only been training with us for 2 months and has made great strides in improving his strength, flexibility, and endurance. Not only has he trimmed down inches in his waist, but he also dropped 35+ lbs in weight, reducing his overall body fat percentage. Being able to rep out pushups was one of his goals, and he has since increased it from 2 to 30! Steve realizes the importance of flexibility because when he first came to us, he could barely touch his toes. Now, with proper stretching, he's touching them with no problem! You can call Steve a plank master because he first started out with a 31s. plank and now can hold over a 6-minute plank and 2:22 minutes with 100lbs on his back!
Steve not only works hard in his training but also with his nutrition which combined, has given him tremendous results. Amazing work, Steve, we can't wait to see what goals you crush next!

Miriam is our August 2021 client of the month!
Miriam had been receiving physical therapy for her myofascial cervical pain prior to training here. Having myofascial cervical pain limited her quality of life and she wasn't able to enjoy the activities she used to do. She found us because she wanted to make some lifestyle adjustments to improve her symptoms.
Miriam has been training at our studio for about 3 months. Her overall training has helped improve her symptoms by training the muscles around the area so not one muscle is overcompensating and because of this, she has not had any flare-ups since. In addition to improving her symptoms, she has been able to increase her strength, cardiovascular fitness, balance, and flexibility. Miriam is an ideal client to work with because she puts her best effort in and pushes hard each session! She’s proven this with a 6 minute and 3-second wall squat!
Keep up the great work Miriam, we cannot wait to see what goals you crush next!
Angela is our July 2021 client of the month!
Angela found us because she wanted to train at a place that understood her knee. Having malalignment of her patellas, it limited her quality of life and she was afraid of doing any sort of movement.
Since working with her, she has made huge strides, figuratively and literally, toward bettering her health and quality of life. Angela is the perfect client that embodies the notion of little wins leading to big wins. From being afraid of bending her knees, to being comfortable enough to train, to her having the confidence to not allow her knees to dictate her life. Angela’s journey is just beginning, but if she continues to build confidence and display the effort she has up to this point, she will continue making improvements.
Angela was able to lower her blood sugar levels from pre-diabetic ranges to completely normal ranges!
We are so excited that Angela chose us to help her achieve her goals! Keep up the great work!!!
George is our June 2021 client of the month!
George has been training at our fitness studio since the beginning of April. He started after having surgery on the cartilage of his knee. George played multiple sports and has been extremely athletic throughout his life but noticed more recently poor dietary habits and declining exercise levels started making a difference in how he looked and felt.
George’s persistence and hard work has paid off very quickly. In less than two months he has lost 32 pounds of body fat and has accumulated more muscle mass and tone. George has lowered his cholesterol and blood sugar levels to normal ranges and is getting off of his blood pressure medicine. He has lost inches off his belly, increased his flexibility, improved his cardiovascular fitness and reports looking and feeling better.
