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.
iGO Fitness is the perfect solution for everyone who would just like to have to satisfaction of a great workout in the comfort of their own home.
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.
