Every girl in my house has taken a class from iGO Fitness, my youngest took Yoga for Kids, my oldest took ACL Injury Resistance Program and Youth Athlete Development and I took Yoga for Newbies. Owners Cory and Cari treated my family like their family. Very accommodating, friendly, and KNOWLEDGEABLE! The best part is they can translate all of the physiology, personal training, athletic development and yoga terms & techniques into instructions we can actually understand. For example, this was my third yoga class (first with iGO) and it was the first time I actually UNDERSTOOD what I was supposed to be doing! Cari accommodated for my body type and explained things in a way I got the very best experience. Plus, they keep their classes VERY small so we always get personalized attention.
I began training with iGO Fitness in February of 2011 and in just three and a half months I have noticed a huge difference in my body definition and performance in athletic activities. I play on three soccer teams and would pull my hamstrings all the time, with the focus and dedication of a personalized training program these injuries are a distant memory for me. Cory, the founder and lead trainer of iGO Fitness, is a fun and energetic trainer who's enthusiasm during his training sessions is matched only by his passion for helping people become healthier. iGO Fitness is the way to go for a healthier you.
When I started my search for a personal trainer, I had three basic requirements: Someone who could help me establish a program that could be done in my home and on my travels, could work with a motivated but out-of-shape 66-year old woman, and could accommodate to a physical therapy program for some joint issues. On a five-star scale, Cory Sims from iGO Fitness gets 10 stars from me! Cory has patiently and consistently challenged me to progress beyond what I thought possible (he assures me that there are full-on pushups in my future!), and I have seen significant improvement in strength, flexibility, and balance. As we go through my workout, he gives me solid information about how my body functions, and his work has been a great accompaniment to my physical therapy. His instruction is focused and specific, and my PT is very impressed with his ability to help me make subtle corrections that both support my physical therapy and avoid recurrence of injury. In addition to his technical skills as a trainer, he's a delight to work with. He has a great sense of humor, and genuine ease in working with people. It's one thing to have a program that works while the trainer is standing beside you, but it was very important for me to have a program that I could do on my own. I had a chance to test the portability of my workout routine in a 3-week trip to Europe, where I was able to continue my workouts almost every day, using equipment that fit in a small corner of my suitcase. Will I ever do a one-handed pushup? I have my doubts, but Cory has been so successful at challenging me that I do have to consider it a possibility!
I've worked with Cory and iGO Fitness from the beginning. My goals have mostly been conditioning, balance and flexibility to support my figure skating habit. Along with that are the challenges of a body that decided to twist itself up in unique ways. I've been impressed with how passionate and thorough Cory is with researching new and creative exercises for me to work on to make improvements in my sport and fix the numerous muscle imbalances that threaten it. In fact, I'm happy to say, due to all the colletive hard work, I recently passed my first figure skating test, and am now working to try a competitive program this next season. I also had the opportunity recently to take the new Yoga classes and it was exactly what I needed to stretch out and relax before enduring a skating workshop. I don't think I would have survived without it. Cari was fantastic and I learned that Yoga was much more active than simply standing in poses - there's a lot more to it and I felt great afterwards. If you're tight on time or have an unpredictable schedule, then this is the program for you. No more excuses about being too tired to go to the gym when now the gym comes to you!
I had the pleasure to participate in Cory’s workout services while visiting a friend in Madison (Cory’s regular client). I was impressed with Cory’s friendly personality and his knowledge of workout techniques. He knew exactly what exercises to utilize for my unique condition (4 lower back operations) while giving me a thorough workout for all other areas of the body. At the end of the session, he performed hands on stretching on my legs and lower back. I was exhausted but invigorated. I’m sure his credentials far exceed the program he provided me. I would highly recommend him for personal training and fitness.
I’ve been practicing yoga on an irregular basis for two year. I’ve recently had the desire to dive deeper into my practice so I sought advanced education from Cari Sims. She was extremely knowledgeable not only with proper alignment and breathing, but Cari is also impressively educated with muscle function. After our session, Cari followed up with me to go over her recommendations and offered additional information on how to improve my shoulder and hip mobility. The next day I attended a flow class and was pleasantly surprised with the awareness I had gained with my poses and how my breathing had vastly improved. I was able to relax into some of the more challenging positions as well as having more ability to activate my core muscles throughout the entire class. This has given me a new sense of excitement to practice yoga. I highly recommend working with Cari to improve mobility and awareness, so you too can practice yoga with purpose.
Finding iGO Fitness was a very happy accident. They are so much more than a regular gym or yoga studio. They are very committed to doing things correctly and providing quality programming. I strongly endorse them and am so happy to be joining as a regular member!
I am over 50 and had as one of my goals in my initial work with Cory at iGO Fitness, to be able to work for hours in my garden and not get sore, in addition to being more toned and fit overall. I can only say that one recent weekend I worked for over 12 hours, weeding and digging and hauling wheelbarrows around with the only soreness coming from a few rose bush scratches! I have realized that the workouts help me to enjoy my grandchildren more too. He has worked around multiple injuries (not from my workouts), and has always kept things interesting. I never know what the workout will encompass. He is always prepared and encouraging. Sign up now, you won't regret it!
I found out about iGo Fitness after Cory gave a very motivating and enthusiastic presentation on what they had to offer and how it could benefit me personally as a high school soccer player. Initially, I was very nervous going to my first training session because this was the first time ever I was going to be working with a trainer. However, to my surprise, the training atmosphere was very different. It was was very relaxed and accommodating for a newcomer like me. There was always the right music played and also I could play my own music if I wanted. Cory is an excellent trainer who makes the sessions fun and very beneficial, while being very motivating. He made the training sessions seem very easy also. The training sessions were also specific to me so I would be a better soccer player, adjusting the trainings according to my abilities and how I reacted to it. He pushed me to do the best I could, and yet he never made me feel like I couldn’t reach my goal. I could also get appropriate feedback on how I’m doing with a particular exercise routine or stretch. If I needed to particularly stretch some part of my muscles, and I didn’t know how to, Cory would show how to do that very easily. Training at iGo Fitness was one of the most beneficial things I believe I have done for myself. It has given me whole new perspective on personal fitness programs.
