Aaron has helped me trim down, increase my stability and improve my overall strength and fitness. I love the power 30 minute sessions – they work into my schedule well and give me a solid workout. Aaron’s approach with both fitness and nutrition has been terrific – I am a believer!

My trainer, Aaron, is just fantastic. He makes every workout challenging, but keeps the atmosphere encouraging and fun. He is very knowledgeable, and researches the best exercises to achieve my individual goals, and adapts our program as we progress and change priorities. … I had tried for nearly two years on my own to increase my vertical leap with no success. Within weeks of working with Aaron I was starting to see results in this area as well as overall strength and conditioning.

I came to Core Results about 18 months ago after a recommendation from a good friend and 6 months after having an inexplicable heart attack. Aaron has become my trainer and friend. He is focused and always aware of my activities and knowledgeable on how to push the right workouts! I train 3 days a week and walk everyday and have felt the best I have in years! Thank you Aaron!
