"Brendan taught me a lot so when I workout by myself I really know what I'm doing. I saw great results without putting in endless hours at the gym. Brendan makes working out fun so you can do even more."

- Liz Atkins, Toronto

"From our very first workout several months ago, I knew I had made a great decision to train with Brendan. He is very in tune with customizing programs to meet your goals -- in my case improved overall fitness to complement jogging. He comes up with new programs every week and they are always fun, efficiently organized and easy to carry over to workouts at home. Brendan's enthusiasm and knowledge of training makes it all a very worthwhile experience."

- Richard Elliott, Lawyer, Toronto

"Brendan,
Thanks for yesterday... after I saw you I went and did Day-1 of the exercises. I'm sore today... but a good sore... muscles all across my body that you've re-introduced me to. And the best thing is that I feel absoluely nothing in my back... it's like it wasn't invited to the party! I'm already looking forward to Day-2 exercises tomorrow :)
Thanks again... I really feel like you've helped me out. "

- Katherine Smart, Toronto
Michelle Massie

"From my very first work-out with Brendan, my whole concept of what I can achieve by staying fit changed radically. A little more than one year later, I feel stronger, fitter, more positive and healthier. I look to the future with renewed enthusiasm. I whole-heartedly recommend his services to anyone who is committed to ensuring their long-term wellness goals!"

- Michelle Massie, President of Michelle Massie Marketing, L'Orignal Ontario

"I used to think I didn't need a trainer because I'm already motivated. But from working with Brendan I know it's much better. It's so much more fun, I love it!"

- Laila Zichmanis, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing, Toronto

"I have been working with personal trainers on and off for almost 15 years. During that time I achieved mediocre results. I started working with Brendan 5 months ago and have lost over 20 lbs and 7% body fat. I cannot believe the changes in my body, my energy level and my health. In addition to this, I can't wait to get to my workout sessions. Brendan incorporates exercise with fun "muscle games" (competitive games between exercise sets). It is just the thing I needed to keep me motivated and achieve results beyond my expectations. My workouts with Brendan have made such a positive difference in my life."

- Lynn Jessop, Human Resource Consultant, Toronto

"Along this life journey, I continue to learn that you either get "it" or you don't. Those who get it, like Brendan Fox, embody the essence of enlightened, compassionate leadership. I particularly like his customization of each workout, done in a humorous way, which adds a great deal to the enjoyment of "sweating buckets". His wide-ranging and always positive conversation during each workout adds to the experience. A quintessential professional trainer, he is a credit to his craft and I highly recommend him."

- Charles Coffey, Order of Canada
Dr. James Aw

"I used to struggle to achieve 25 pushups. I've been training with Brendan for the past year and a half, and am now able to do a clean 78 pushups in one minute. He's taught me how to train smarter - not harder. With his coaching I've noticed tremendous improvements in my overall fitness and health."

- Dr. James Aw, Medcan Clinic Medical Director, Toronto

"I have been working with Brendan 3 times a week for the past year and a half. I find Brendan to be very innovative, creative, and never boring. He changes up routines all the time. He is not judgmental. I have noticed that he is very supportive of his clients, regardless of what fitness level they are at. Brendan sets realistic targets, and helps clients meet them so that they feel good about what they are doing, and are motivated to set the next target"

- Bob Armstrong, Lawyer, Toronto

"Besides being an incredibly positive and energetic person, Brendan Fox is an amazing trainer who emphasizes the "personal" part of personal training. Whether he's doing research to help me rehab my rotator cuff, creating hilarious workout themes to make the session more fun, or carefully working with me to regain abdominal strength after a recent surgery, he always makes me feel stronger, more energized and ready for more!"

- Beverly Mitchell, Owner of Gardenscape Fine Garden Tools

"Brendan makes workouts much more efficient. I can't overemphasize that. He maximizes the time, I don't need to think of what the workout is, I just do it. And I know I'm getting everything in, in a quick 45 minutes."

- Michael Hatcher, VP of European Equities, Toronto

"You always find muscles I didn't know that I had!"

- Hilary Clarke, Lawyer, Toronto

"What I like most is the discipline. Brendan gives me a new program each week, I do it at home, then we switch things up the next week so that I don't plateau."

- Jeff Kennedy, CFO, Toronto

"I've been training with Brendan for 2 years, and we're still making big strides. The intensity level is much higher than when trying to push myself on my own. It's also the variety of exercises that keeps things interesting."

- Craig Pho, Portfolio Manager, Toronto
Shirley Keillor

"After just one year with Brendan, my bodyfat has gone from 38% to 19.6%. My clothing size has shrunk from a size 16 to a size 8! Oh, and by the way, I'm 65 years old!"

- Shirley Keillor, Real Estate Agent, Whitby, Ontario
Samniang Minc

"I had tried other personal trainers before without success. Then I heard good things about Brendan and decided to give it another chance. I lost 52 pounds in 8 months. I would recommend Brendan as the best trainer out there!"

- Samniang Minc, Chef, Whitby, Ontario
Claudia Pinto

"Since training with Brendan, I now have abs I've never seen before! The stuff he does WORKS, I look and feel better than I ever have!"

- Claudia Pinto, Whitby, Ontario
Ed Buffet

"At about the time of my heart attack, my blood pressure was about 160 over 110, and was 29% bodyfat. As a result of regular exercise and sensible eating, my blood pressure is now 120 over 70, and I'm 19% bodyfat."

- Ed Buffet, CEO Buffet and Company, Whitby, Ontario

"My blood pressure was 70 over 30, and I was intimidated to exercise. The important thing was finding a trainer who understands, and knows how to build confidence. I'm feeling stronger everyday, and am more confident about living with my low blood pressure."

- Sheryl Wright, Retired Pilot, Whitby, Ontario

"Initially I thought the price of having a trainer was high, but I hired one anyways, and came to realize the tremendous value. Since investing in Brendan I have lost fat, am more focused, and have energy all day long."

- Dr. Naresh Kumar, Cardiologist, Whitby, Ontario

"Without Brendan's enthusiasm and knowledge I know I would not have been able to lose 113 pounds. Thanks Brendan for believing in me!"

- Michelle Dovell, Whitby, Ontario

"Before I went on the Brendan Fox experience, I was 280 pounds and had no self esteem. Since then I am down to 200 pounds and am happier than ever!"

- Ryan Sallie, Oshawa, Ontario

"Brendan is awesome. Brendan makes the training fun, but at the same time gets me the results I want. My bodyfat was reduced from 32.1% to 12.1%."

- Tammy Stevenson, Oshawa, Ontario

"I'm extremely happy. I didn't expect to lose 11 pounds in only 3 weeks."

- Scott Boyle, Whitby, Ontario

"It's a good thing I can sew. I've had to alter all my clothes to fit a thinner me!"

- Anya Bungay, Whitby, Ontario

"I turned to Brendan to help me get ready for my wedding - lose some extra pounds and tone up. He created a great program that not only motivated me but also took my lifestyle into account. In only a few short months, he helped me lose the weight and significantly decrease my body fat. My dress maker told me that I had to stop decreasing in size as she could only take the dress in so much! Brendan's enthusiasm made it the process fun and (relatively) painless."

-- Tricia Hough, Director of program integration, Canadian Tire

"Thank you for inspiring me, and going the extra mile. You make working out "fun"!
