These incredible before & after workout stories are from dedicated clients who have put in the work to achieve lasting results.
I'm incredibly happy that I found Ron. He has changed my life for the better, and every time I see him, I feel stronger. ...I can tell he takes extra care to guide me and never give me the same workout twice. "I'm not a drill sergeant, but I'm not easy either," he said the first day I trained with him, and he wasn't kidding. The workout is always challenging but it’s always a great workout and I feel so accomplished when I’m finished. He also understands that life gets in the way sometimes and never pressures me or makes me feel guilty about missing the gym. Instead, the next time... he likes to talk with me about what fun things I did and he pays attention and follows up on things I tell him about work and family. I have new confidence about myself thanks to Ron’s guidance and encouragement. He is more than a trainer , he is an amazing friend and great person to have in your circle.

...He immediately took interest in my story and I could tell he had a real desire to see me succeed, even though he had never met me. My first workout in one word? Insane.

...my weight loss hit a plateau. I didn't think I could reach my goal weight. That was before Ron brought me to the promise land! ...I have lost more pounds and inches than ever before... pushed me to the limit and beyond.
As a new mom, I was challenged to lose the pregnancy weight and get back into shape... I am very happy with the results... very professional, dedicated and a great motivator... by far the best trainer I have ever had.
...I needed to shed unwanted holiday pounds... working in an office made the battle to lose weight difficult... I began training with Ron three times a week and following all his nutritional advice. It really is amazing, a few tweaks to my workout and diet and the results… at the end of the 8 weeks... I was 18 pounds lighter. I have never felt so accomplished in my entire life... My body fat percentage dropped 7% and gained 4% in muscle mass. I looked and felt amazing. ...The work was extremely hard, but it is incredible to have a trainer that truly cares and shares your goals with you. If you want results, Ron is with you all the way. He pushes you beyond what you ever thought was possible... When he gives you a nutritional plan to follow, you immediately see the results... he is always there to answer any questions...you become a stronger, more motivated person. You begin to look forward to stepping on the scale and watching the numbers drop... my journey with a healthy lifestyle is just beginning and it is all thanks to Ron.
...an excellent trainer... one of the most positive and motivating individuals that I know... by far the best group fitness class I had ever taken... absolutely kicks your butt... fun and leaves you wanting more... took the time to learn about my goals, knew how to push me... a pleasure to work with. I even trusted him to train me at the beginning of my pregnancy. Overall, I truly believe he has the knowledge to help one achieve their goals...
A professional... Few trainers give as much attention to the client at all times during the entire workout. You WILL get results with Ron if you follow his program!
As a runner, I'm picky about my trainers. I was looking to incorporate more cross training into my workouts... so glad I found Ron... one of the most dynamic and challenging fitness trainers I have ever worked with... no two workouts are the same... helped me build upper body and core strength, along with endurance that has helped me excel in my running pursuits. If you're looking for a trainer who will push you, motivate you, and expect nothing but your best, Ron West is where you want to be.

Ron West is by far the best trainer I will ever have... if you're looking for someone to motivate you towards your goals... RON IS THE MAN! I've been taking his kickboxing, boot camp, & personally trained with him for a few years... I can't get enough. You'll feel awesome after taking his classes! Thanks to him I have been losing weight and learned how to make better choices with food! You will not be disappointed!
Ron is awesome! He always pushes you to give everything you can each workout!
Ron is THE trainer for those that crave a challenge and variety!
Lynn Sherman Alloy
I love the training style he utilizes!
...Determined to shed some extra weight... Ron told me that half the battle was the food I was eating and the portions; and not to worry about the rest, that his training routine would take care of it all... I have not only reached my goal, but succeeded it, and did so slowly, and consistently. I train with Ron once a week, but these sessions are more intense and tough on my body than any other exercise, and it’s all worth it. I have increased endurance, stamina, and muscle while decreasing body fat... the training is real hard but Ron does not allow me to give up... pushes me to my limit.. tells me I can do it! ...sometimes before I notice it, the change has already taken place... Determination + a great trainer = SUCCESS! Seeing these results has now left me wanting to set more goals!

...pushes you to limits you did not know were possible. When you think you can't do anymore he is able to motivate you to go to the next step. It is obvious he truly cares about your personal results and wants you to be the best you possibly can be. His passion for his clients and dedication to fitness are contagious which is why I actually look forward to working out. I can honestly say I have reached personal fitness goals that I would never have been able to achieve with out Ron's guidance.
...focused on your exercise and diet! ...If you have the desire and a goal of losing weight, toning up, or training for an event, Ron will be right there giving you the encouragement and the results. I gave a 100% in my training and so did he! I achieve my goal with his help... a fantastic trainer and person.

As a personal trainer and Holistic Nutritional Consultant, being 45 pounds overweight is not a business asset... In order to find fitness once again, I reconnected with Ron... because I knew he was the best in the business. We began with activities I enjoy most –working the boxing bag– and as my fitness and enthusiasm increased, so did the variety of exercises. Ron’s expertise in personal training, coupled with my knowledge of food and eating patterns, had me toned, at my ideal weight, and with the energy I had as a 20 year old within only six months! He is a professional; his no-nonsense approach, along with a bit of humor, will help those who are serious about training get into shape... I recommend him to all those who are looking to get fit.

Serving in the military makes you constantly aware of your physical fitness level and your weight... After being at the maximum allowable weight for several years, I decided to get serious about my diet and exercise... I knew his intensely rigorous and almost militaristic style of teaching would be a perfect fit with my background. I wanted a trainer who would push me to push myself and not stand around chit-chatting. After over a year and a half of Ron’s training and guidance, I am well below my maximum allowable weight-for-height standard and have been performing to the highest level on the twice-yearly physical fitness tests. The potential had always been there, but I needed an exceptional Personal Trainer like Ron to help me realize it.

I have had several trainers over the past decade or so. With a very stressful position, career wise, I very much enjoy a truly challenging and rewarding workout agenda. Only Ron has delivered what I feel is a program that pushes me beyond what I felt were my limitations. He pushes hard but gives you confidence and exceeds expectations with effective results. I look forward to each session as they are always wonderfully creative and ever changing.
Robin A. Meyers
...not only an exceptional physical trainer, but also a really great person... creates opportunity for his clients by providing tips, tricks, and additional outlets for improving your overall physical and mental health... will get you motivated enough to WANT to workout at 5:30 AM through his sheer excitement and energy for life - he did it for me! THAT's what's different - and that's how you see results.

...I have struggled with my weight. I had tried everything and anything! Weight Watchers, South beach diet - I'd lose a few pounds, and then the weight would come crashing back. I had given up and within no time I realized that I was 160lbs. One day... I joined Fitness First, which is where I attended Ron's kickboxing class. I was so impressed with the rigorous workout and was all determined to get back in shape... My goal was to find a trainer who would listen to me, understand my needs and focus their attention on how to best generate and motivate the changes I've always wanted to make... After my first meeting with Ron, I felt comfortable and excited to begin this life-changing program with him... the BEST personal trainer I've ever worked with. With his own unique style and personality, he pushes you to your outer limits... He created a great workout that is beneficial, enduring, rigorous and tiring.. gave me a personalized food journal and knowledge to help me reach my goals and within 2 weeks I could see the difference. After almost 10 months I have lost 48lbs and never felt better... I look forward for his workout as well as kickboxing class... not only helped me achieve my goal but also made me to enjoy working out. Working out with Ron is like an addiction, even my husband trains with him now... I strongly recommend to anyone who is determined, willing to put out the effort, and have fun at the same time.
...a no-nonsense trainer. If you do exactly what he tells you to do, you will slim down and shape up in no time. At 50, I'm stronger and healthier than I ever was in my 30s and 40s... You get your money's worth. There's no playing around with the weights while you chat about your day with the trainer. He will tailor a challenging program just for you that targets your weaknesses and your problem spots. He's the best.
...a trainer like the Secretary of State is a secretary... very conscientious about his business and has the insight needed to provide training that is well adapted to the customer... you get service an order of magnitude higher than you might expect... a good personality and good character... we have lost a lot of weight, increased in strength, and also increased our cardio vascular strength.
I am 64 years old and I have lost over 25 lbs in 6 months... I approached taking on a trainer with some trepidation. At my age I wondered whether I was taking on too much. But, through great advice about diet and an exercise regimen developed by Ron, I am in better shape than I was 20 years ago. "It's all about you", Ron will say... Getting old is not for sissies. But, working with a trainer as professional and personable as Ron, it sure is more pleasurable and rewarding.
Your health is worth the investment.
