I've been working with Leo for close to 5 months now. Prior to training with him, I worked out and had a gym routine. I would see minimal results and was basing my workouts on the little knowledge I had plus watching others in the gym workout. Over time, I hit a plateau and felt frustrated with the lack of results I was seeing. I contacted Leo for a workout and got educated on various things. The three things that stuck out the most to me was my lack of clean eating, improper form on the majority of my workouts, and misconception of a proper workout routine. Since our start, I've improved in all areas with Leo's guidance. He has kept me accountable for my actions, planned workouts on our off days, provided different forms of clean eating, and advised me on all aspects. I feel confident in my appearance and overall health. Leo maintains a friendly and fun atmosphere and continues to challenge me and strives to see gains in my workouts.

I started working with Leo in September of 2017, when I realized fad diets were not working. I was not happy in my own skin and it was time to do something about it. Since the very first time I stepped into the gym I felt like I made the right decision choosing Leo as my trainer. Leo shared his knowledge of proper nutrition, tracking calories, and the importance of proper form. Of all the things that he preached about regarding living a healthy lifestyle; consistency is what stood out most. That is what my issue was, being consistent. I wanted quick results and did not want to do the work. Training with Leo does not feel like a chore. It’s a feeling of accomplishment once the workout is complete, especially with Leo standing behind you pushing you out of your comfort zone. Leo is truly amazing at what he does, I cannot imagine going through this journey without him! I am currently down 40 pounds and I have never felt better! I am happy, healthy and confident in my own skin! Leo pours his whole heart into helping, educating, and guiding people in the right direction. “Make it Happen” is exactly what he does!

I started training with Leo last year in August. At the time I was very frustrated with the weight I had gained during my third pregnancy. After I had my child, I was at 168 and in three months I had lost 18 pounds on my own. However, I got stuck at 150 and the scale was not moving. This was my third child and instead of getting frustrated I decided that it was time to get professional help.
Nine months later I had lost 30 pounds and my body was fitter than ever! During the time of training I got desperate and frustrated but Leo was able to push me and he surpassed my expectations. He always checking on what I was eating and helped me correct any over indulgences that I was having at the time. After the workouts I always felt rejuvenated, had more energy and had a positive attitude towards reaching my weight goal.
I cannot be happier that I found a trainer that helped me not only look better but taught me that with perseverance and a healthy diet you can reach your weight goals and be a happier person because of it.
I highly recommend Leo for anyone that is feeling frustrated and is ready to take the challenge to lose the extra pounds! Thanks Leo!

I began training with Leo because I had hit a plateau with my weight loss and felt it was time I take my training to the next level. I knew Leo would be the perfect person to do that as we've been friends for many years and I had seen first hand what he was able to accomplish for himself. Not many people are able to say they have lost 200lbs+ on their own solely through diet and exercise. I had also seen the results his other clients were getting so I was excited to begin working with him. After our first work out, I knew right away he was the real deal. Since I had already lost about 25lbs prior, I thought I was tough and could handle any workout given to me. Leo proved to me that no matter how fit you think you may be, there's always room for improvement. Leo pushes me to an entire different level of fitness that I would've never thought I could reach. When I'm finished training with him, I feel like I'm on top of the world! Like I can achieve anything and that's really what a good trainer is, someone who can make you feel like any goal that you set is feasible. Nothing is impossible and Leo reassures me of that constantly. I look forward to not only achieving the goals I set with him but constantly making new ones and breaking though barriers I never thought I would.

Cathy Sanders


I have been training with Leo for over 3 years now and he has really helped me to stay limber and strong into my fifties. Leo varies our work out so I don’t get bored, but is also aware of my limits due to some health issues and develops my workouts with all of that in mind. I think you have to like the person you see early in the morning – getting up to work out early is hard enough. I hope to be training with Leo for a long time.




Heather Graham


Almost four years ago I bought 10 personal training sessions with Leo, thinking Iʼd use what he taught me to work out on my own. I never left. Leo transformed my body and my life




Katie Walsh


Leo was the first trainer I ever had so I didn't know what to expect. I knew that I was dreading the pain of it all (being so out of shape) but kept my eye on the prize. To my satisfaction, the workouts were new, exciting, fun, hilarious and, as his title claims, personal. He interviewed me on my goals, strengths and weaknesses and customized my workouts to achieve the ultimate results. I hate planks but he made me do them, kindly reminding me that he's the pro here and that it would work...and it did. =) My quads are a weakness of mine so Leo made sure squats and lunges were always included. They hurt like hell but he was right on track because I built up that muscle. He also shared his own weight loss story with me, which inspired me so much more! It also made me a little more comfortable knowing he knew exactly what I was going through. He's been there, he's done it and he was going to help steer me in the right direction. We got work done but we joked and laughed and shared awesome times together. We even have nicknames and special handshakes! I went from dreading my workouts to looking forward to every day I had a session with Leo. He's one kick ass trainer and an awesome friend. Thanks Leo for a wonderful experience and for helping me be a better me!




Madeleine Hernandez


I started training with Leo two years ago. I was referred to him by a friend who had a very positive experience with him, so I went into it hoping for great results and was not disappointed! I met my weight lost goal of 65 pounds in a little over a year. I now still continue to train with him because I can't see myself working out without him. He's a great trainer who genuinely cares about his clients getting results.




Janice Davis


I'm a 48 year old single mother of two. I trained with Leo for over two years, lost 35lbs during this time and was able to say I was in the best shape of my life at 47. More importantly, I learned to live a healthy lifestyle, be confident, and to love and accept my body. Not only do I consider him a very knowledgeable trainer but also a great friend and part of my family.




Alpa Magloire


Leo was the best trainers I've ever worked with. He is knowledgable, patient and kind while also being strict. He varies routines and helps with daily nutrition. It was great to work with someone who 'gets it' since he's been there. If I hadn't moved away, we'd still be working together. He is a great motivator!




Christine Monaghan


I trained with Leo for two years and only stopped because I moved away. He is a great motivator and puts a lot of effort into creating personalized and challenging workouts. I had previously tried working out on my own and struggled to see results, but working with Leo I was able to lose weight and also build my strength and endurance. He really cares about his clients and helping them reach their goals; he even made time to help me workout when I was in Chicago at Christmas. I highly recommend working with him.
