Personal Quote: “My philosophy has been to modify exercise in a way that it becomes enjoyable, but also promotes healthy behavior which helps influence the overall quality and longevity of an individual’s life. The quality of a person’s life is directly proportional to their commitment to excellence, regardless of the obstacles that may stand in their way.”


“I would recommend working with a personal trainer, even if it’s just once a week.  It’s harder to skip workouts when you know someone is going to ask you if you’ve been to the gym!”


“Thanks to all my Mettler team for making my recovery from back surgery much easier. I was strong and well-prepared for the required limitations placed on my movements. It wasn’t an easy task given the pain I was in prior to surgery.

Anthony, my trainer, worked with Matt, my physical therapist, in designing specific stretches and strengthening exercises to make my legs and arms strong to help me rise from sitting, etc. Anthony was the best in guiding me through my regiment of exercises.
