    A very talented trainer. He showed me exercises that have helped me become much stronger and have helped alleviate my back pain. Thanks Lucas!

    Lucas is one of the most qualified fitness professionals that I know.
    He evaluates each client upon meeting. Lucas takes time and makes sure he ask the questions that will help him understand the needs or physical challenges that needed to be addressed before training.
    The assessement will bring him closer to the desired goals with less room for injuries. I respected that focus in him,because you feel safe with a person that is concerned about how you reach results.

    Wow! After training with Lucas I have more energy and I feel and look younger than ever! His philosphy, dedication and commitment to his clients is what makes his one on one training stand out from the rest. I just wish I would have started training with him sooner!

    "I cannot give enough accolades about my trainer, Lucas. He is by far the most dedicated and good-mannered trainer I have had over the past 17 years. He is also the most prepared trainer out that I have experienced, arriving at each session with a written and detailed workout plan. I happen to have a high blood pressure condition and Lucas even personally keeps track of my blood pressure for me! He is very concerned about my overall health and uses his thorough knowledge to guide me towards a healthy lifestyle; this seems to be a main goal of him. He is also encouraging and understanding always aware of one's limitations by finding ways to work around an injury, for example. I feel I would be doing myself a big disservice if I were not training with Lucas and should anyone considering training with him. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding lucas ability or character"
