“Working out has never been something I have enjoyed doing and have always struggled to be consistent with and maintain. I began personal training with Josh simply looking for the accountability and motivation to keep me going but have gained so much more.
Josh has taught me a great deal about fitness and nutrition and has given me the motivation and confidence to set and meet goals that I never dreamt possible for myself. He has truly made a positive impact on not only my health and well-being but my life as a whole. Taking the step to work with Reed’s Wellness and Fitness Training has been one of the best decisions I have ever made for myself and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to become a better you.”
“Ladies over 50 or who are in the “change of life”: Please try a personal trainer. Josh got it through my hard head that we need to strength train. I always thought that cardio was the only important thing to burn calories. But when I noticed that my body was not responding like it used to in my 40’s, I was frustrated and thought that menopause was unbeatable. I went to Josh just to see what personal trainers are all about. I learned the importance of strength training – Especially as we age!. Our body’s shape can still be changed and re-shaped by strength training. You will notice subtle changes very quickly. Give it a try. Josh is extremely knowledgeable about the body and how our body uses nutrition. It all matters. Don’t “give up” because of your age. Exercise and strength train in spite of your age.”
“I had just gotten engaged when I decided it was time for a change. I was terrified that I would be disappointed in my wedding photos, and in my dress shopping experience, so I knew I needed to try something different. I had attempted to loose weight before and was successful to a point. However, I would get tired of the same routine, bland foods, and made up every excuse my hectic schedule would allow, to skip my workout or get fast food. Before I knew it, any weight I had lost, I gained back and then some. I felt like I had no clue what to do to successfully lose weight, and felt like I needed some help to get started in the right direction.
I had always been really intimidated by the idea of personal trainer or fitness classes. I thought I would be way more out of shape than anyone else in the class or feel uncomfortable with one on one attention. However, that shiny new ring on my finger gave me that extra incentive to step out of my comfort zone and look for a personal trainer.
I really had no clue where to start. I made a request on Thumbtack and spoke with several trainers just to see if personal training would even be a good fit for me. After meeting Josh the decision was easy. He made me feel comfortable with things I was nervous about, such as creating a meal plan I could stick to, even though I’m a very picky eater, and assured me my goals for my body were achievable. I was still extremely nervous to start my workouts, but Josh made me feel much better from the start.
I’ve been working with Josh for over 5 months now and though I still have a long way to go, I’ve achieved more than I ever realized I could. When I started working out consistently I expected to loose some weight. However, I didn’t expect to become stronger, leaner, have a happier attitude, more energy, more confident, and a better understanding of nutrition any my own body. I’ve learned so much from Josh! My entire mindset has refocused. I’m no longer only doing this for a dress, or pretty wedding photos. I’m doing this to better my entire life and thanks to Josh, so far so good
I’m starting to see more and more improvement from myself and it feels great. I’m so happy that I made the decision to seek out a personal trainer but even more happy that I chose Reed’s Wellness and Fitness Training specifically. I cannot say enough great things about Josh’s approach to helping people. I could go on forever about the different things he does that makes making these lifestyle changes manageable. From specific nutrition advice to working around injuries, or helping to strengthen muscles that caused me continual back pain, it has been truly a personalized experience that I don’t see how any other trainer could do it better.
I would HIGHLY recommend Reed’s Wellness and Fitness Training no matter what your fitness goals are. Josh definitely knows what he is talking about and truly cares about your fitness goals.”
More like 15 Stars. I am a 12 year veteran of Master Fry’s kickboxing and was looking just to try something else, just once. I bought a Groupon and went to Josh‘s spot in Ludlow and have been going back ever since. Unlike most gyms I have been to where the “trainers” just follow an app or give you a list of exercises, turn on music and walk away, Josh is extremely passionate and knowledgeable about fitness which allows him to tailor every work out session and exercise within it to each person at the class. I never leave Josh’s without feeling like I did some work and bettered myself…isn’t that the point? Super cool dude, super great work out, super awesome deal – get it! ♥"
“Josh is an excellent trainer. I’ve been working with him for a little over year now, which is the most dedicated I have ever been with any program. He updates your workouts so that you don’t get bored. He is also very attentive to each individual’s own personal needs and adjusts workouts accordingly.
As a nurse I am on my feet for hours at a time and have always dealt with lower back issues, but Josh has carefully watched out for that and I have noticed an increase in back strength with a decrease in pain. That is only one of the many results I have noticed since working with Josh as my trainer. The effective workouts and his positive attitude are what keeps me coming back! I highly recommend Reed’s Wellness and Fitness Training!”
