Ethan McElroy is a wonderful personal trainer. He listened to my personal goals and did a great job of adapting my workouts to build up the areas I wanted to work on. He was high energy and did a good job of keeping me motivated and moving. I really enjoyed that he knew the names of the muscles I was working out and he was very knowledgeable about exercise and the body. I would highly recommend him to anyone trying to get in shape. I loved my results at the end of our sessions together!

Ethan has taught me so much about weightlifting, my abilities and strength, and effective ways to lose fat while gaining muscle. Ethan is always available through email, text, or phone when I need extra guidance. He is a gentle trainer who encourages you to do your best and to never give up. With Ethan by my side, I know I will reach my goals.

Ethan is an excellent trainer. He is patient, but also knows when to push, and when to back off! His knowledge of power lifting is outstanding! If he doesn’t know the answer to a question, he will find it, and get back with you! I HIGHLY recommend Ethan, if you’re looking for a Personal Trainer, for any reason!!
