    I started training with Carlos at least a year and a half ago. I was at the time morbidly obese with multiple health issues. I had Fibromyalgia as well as late stage chronic Lyme's disease. I couldn't move without pain and I had given up. He was very compassionate in my situation and tailored our workouts to be gentle on my joints. He was so energetic and motivating he got me moving again even through the chronic pain! The first year I lost over 45 lbs and am now just categorized as overweight. I still have work to do, however I can't imagine where I would be now without his training and support. He has a tremendous amount of knowledge of nutrition and holistic approaches to a healthier me. I feel so much stronger and more alive as the pounds melt away. I am a healthier person, Mother, and Wife thanks to Carlos. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is serious about changing their fitness level and improving their life. He is a really good trainer, but more than that he is a really great person.

    Playing a competetive Division 1 sport I am familiar with what it takes to get into great shape and meet your fitness goals. I started using Carlos about 2 years agao and have been able to drop 30 pounds and reduce my body fat by about 10%. Improve my golf, game, eat healthier, and found an overall better quality of life. Unlike trainers that I have worked with in the past Carlos' routines never get old. he is finding new ways to keep workouts cutting edge, but at the same time still making sure that i am meeting my fitness goals. Just like anyone I dreaded getting up to workout, but Carlos has made it fun and with his personality as well it is like you are working out with a great trainer, but also a friend. i would reccomend Carlos to anyone who wants to reach fitness goals from any standpoint. He is the best.

    I started training with Carlos in the spring of 2010 and we discussed fitness goals to improve my golf and skiing. I found his energy and enthusiasm contagious and saw immediate results as 3 moths later I won my golf club championship and I no longer had lower back pain from my golf swing. As we moved into the ski season he adapted our workout program for this sport and I have seen the results on the slopes as my improved endurance and increased flexibility have made me a better skiier. Carlos brings the complete package to your home and varies his routines so that you're constantly engaged and highly motivated. I look forward to our regular workouts and have seen the fitness improvement I was seeking from our training.

    I've been training with Carlos for over 3 years, and now that I live in Manhattan, I make time to come out to Connecticut to train with him because he is highly professional, caring, and enthusiastic about physical fitness. He has helped me to design a workout schedule that I can take on the go when I travel and which I can keep up with during busy weeks when I can't make it out to train with him. Beyond his professionalism, Carlos is a caring individual who is concerned with his clients physical and mental well being. And best of all, I never hurt even after the hardest of workouts!

    I have been training with Carlos Perez for the last five years. After having my first child I was looking for someone who could assist me in getting back into shape and then reaching a higher level of pre-pregnancy fitness. Not only did Carlos help me outline and then achieve several fitness and nutritional goals, he also helped me regain strength and mobility in an injured shoulder that I had been suffering with for a few years-something no other trainer had been able to help me accomplish. I couldn't be more thrilled to have found Carlos. I love to recommend him whenever possible. He's a committed professional who is dedicated in helping his clients achieve their personal goals. On top of all that, he's a great guy.
