CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

After only a few months of working out with Chad at ICON Gym, I not only look and feel better, but I’m better equipped for any physical challenges that may arise as part of my job. As a police officer, physical conditioning and response time can be critical. The top-notch team of professionals at ICON Gym has provided the necessary training, nutritional guidance and encouragement to be successful. I highly recommend ICON Gym to anyone looking to get fit and feel great.

BridgetMy wife has been training with Chad at ICON gym for one hour, three days a week, and after only a month we have both noticed dramatic differences!  My wife has always been beautiful, but after working with Chad she is even hotter than when we met 12 years ago.

The approach Chad takes at ICON is not a “one size fits all” program.  It is custom-tailored to each individual’s current physical condition, goals, and schedule.  I can’t recommend him highly enough.  If you’ve been thinking about getting a personal trainer but you’ve felt intimidate or unsure if it will get the results you want, look no further.  Checkout ICON and change your physical appearance, health, and confidence today.

R.FredrickIf you want to be barked at like you’re in boot camp, don’t come here. If you want the same old routines with the same low results, then don’t come here. If you don’t want more confidence from the way you feel and look, then don’t come here. If you WANT life changing training that gives you energy, confidence and trainers that can heal your body and put you on a path to regaining control of your life, then look no further. This is your new home. My shoulder had been hurting for the last 10 years and within the first 2 months it felt better and after 4 months, I can use it with full motion again.

My son has been working with ICON Gym for about six weeks now.  When he began, I was immediately impressed by the professionalism, expertise, and infectious positive attitude of Chad and ALL the trainers.  The equipment is top of the line and the training plan is tailored to my son’s specific needs and goals.

After about three weeks, I noticed obvious improvements in my son’s physique and he became much more motivated to work and work hard!  He has followed the home instructions, including stretching and diet, and has gained weight, strength, and conditioning.  We’re very pleased with the quick results and the integrity of ICON and its program.  Thank you all very much for your interest in my son.

As a police officer for more than 15 years, with 12 of those years on the SWAT team, being in top physical and mental condition is not only vital but critical.  With Chad’s help, he’s taught me that you cannot have one without the other… that mental strength correlates with physical strength, and when you have both, nothing is impossible.

HobbsChad has been my training coach and partner for the past several years. When we first met, I was having sharp pains in my left shoulder. After his assessment, he told me I was weak in my back from working chest (bench press) more than other muscle groups, and I was even doing that wrong, which was causing the pain in my shoulder, not to mention I could barely press 135lbs. The first several weeks of our training were devoted to strengthening my back and shoulders, and teaching me proper form. Since then, my physical performance and appearance at work has improved. The 135lbs bench press has been replaced with a 315lbs bench press, as well as heavier lifts with other muscle groups, faster run times, and more stamina!

Over the years, I’ve come to know Chad well, and I can definitely say that he possesses the rare ability to genuinely care about each and every person that comes before him.  He understands that if you truly want to help someone, you must take the time to get to know the person, inside and out in order to help them improve in all ways.

As for me, with Chad’s workouts and his nutrition guidance, I’ve become physically stronger and gained muscle. I am amazed at his never-ending depth of knowledge.  And even now, with his unique exercise techniques and workouts, I continue to build strength and mass.

Currently, Chad is working on a program to help my Department’s SWAT team achieve maximum physical stamina and efficiency.  A team is only as strong as the weakest leak, and in an effort to continually push the team’s strength boundaries, Chad will determine the physical fitness of each operator. From there, he’ll craft a specific strength conditioning training program to help the team achieve and exceed optimal levels of performance.

Chad isn’t just a trainer.  He genuinely cares about each and every person and does whatever it takes to help bring out the very best in the people he works with.
