Very Happy. On a vacation to Yellowstone last year I realized how out of shape I had become. I was winded after climbing for 10 minutes and at the end of the day my knees, feet and back were killing me. With a supportive spouse in mind, I contact avatar. I have been working out there since and, while the progress is slower the I would hope, then results are fantastic. I have a very active family (camping, hiking, etc) and now look forward to this season to enjoy being outside once again with them knowing that my body is much better and stronger. Thanks you to Eric and his staff!
Wow! What a difference!.
Facts on me:
was active 10+ years ago, but put on weight during grad school and long hours at the office post school
Hired another trainer after extensive research over 1 year ago
Wish I had come to Avatar sooner
Facts on Avatar:
Attentive, focused and highly knowledgeable staff and owner
Staffed by people who truly care about you, and helping you achieve long term health and wellness
Being discouraged by a poor experience elsewhere, but not wanting to give up on my goals, I contact Avatar. I initially met with the owner, Eric, for over 2 hours talking about my goals, health and body. I wanted to make certain Avatar was a wise investment. During the meeting we devised a plan of attack that was, to use his word, holistic. He was concerned not just for the aesthetic goals I had for my body, but making certain it worked properly. From the first session, I knew this was a different place. The sessions, not only educate me how to train myself, but also work on the functionality of my body as a whole: Posture, alignment, flexibility, everything! The amount of knowledge the staff has on the body and motion is impressive and should be the standard, not the exception for trainers. I am now 3 months into my program, seeing and feeling results and delighted to write this to inspire others to action.
What more can I say. I have been working with Eric at Avatar for the past 6 weeks and Wow! What a difference I feel in my body. I am stronger, more coordinated and flexible and I am going to start 2010 being a better me. Thanks so much!
Good place for students. I live on west bank and this place close for me. The training is a bit different then I am used to, we work the entire body and focusing not only on strength but also balance and flexibility. All I can say is its fun and the method works as I feel great and am noticing changes. I will keep going here.
Best Personal Training. I work with Eric and his staff a few times a month. All the comments are accurate. You have to try this place out!
Wonderful people. I live here and NYC. When I am in town I always work with Eric. He is simply the best in either city. The workouts are fun, educational and he is passionate about his work and your body. The right trainer makes all the difference in the world!
Great training and honest people.
I only went to Avatar for 6 sessions and worked with Eric the owner. Other studios I went to actually told me that if I couldn't buy a large package that I was wasting my money and their time. Eric actually listened to me needs and financial constraint and designed a program that met my goals and needs within the 6 session.
Eric spaced my sessions out to last over 5 weeks so I was able to get the most from my investment. The service was wonderful and the training was top notch. Best of all he helped me with plans of things to do outside of his studio. I would recommend Avatar to everyone!
Best kept secret. Went to Avatar for 3 months and worked with Andrea and Eric. Great workouts and guidance on how to change my life around. I wish I could still go 3 times a week, but even at once a week they keep me motivated and going! Best of it that they make certain that I know how to workout and be active without them. Had to write a review as these were the reason I called in the first place. Definitively the best decision for health I have made in years was to call Avatar.
Not what I was hoping for.... I had a great initial consultation with Eric but felt like my subsequent sessions really lacked substance. The workouts were just okay - not great, and I didn't come away with any useful tools/techniques as I had hoped and had specifically asked for. I think this is the type of place where a VERY significant financial (and studio time) commitment is required. If you are looking for basic instruction and guidance to help in your independent fitness efforts, this is not the place for you. I wish I had known this before I committed to multiple sessions because, overall, I felt like it was a waste of money for my personal goals for the training. I also feel like gyrotonic is pushed over other disciplines (again, with a significant financial commitment).
Regained contol of my life with Avatar!. Training at Avatar is different, The staff here is extremely knowledgeable and cares so much about each client. I have never felt like a number or 'just a client' but Eric and the staff have been dedicated to helping me archive my goals and regain control of my diet and body. The process has not been easy, nor smooth, but throughout each obstacles they were there to help my succeed. I am still a client and will be for life, not because I need them anymore, but because I choose to and they earned it!!
