EAT REAL NUTRIENT DENSE FOODS
WORKOUT SMARTER NOT HARDER
STOP DREAMING, START DOING
Geno has an extraordinary ability to offer nutrition counselling, a thorough assessment of where you are in terms of strength, mobility, flexibility, fat content and muscle mass. With Geno, it is like going back to school with the very fun teacher or professor you deeply admired. He pushes you hard, but in a fun and motivational way. He explains body mechanics and how supplements work. He lets you know that the workout you did at 26 no longer makes sense at 56. Geno offers peace of mind knowing you have selected someone who has the knowledge and the ability to communicate in a unique and positive way. I would recommend Geno for anyone looking to enhance their well-being, gain a better understanding of nutrition, strength training, yoga, stretching and body mechanics. Life is hard and a successful journey today requires health and focus to succeed. Geno can offer you that, and more.Robert K.Life is hard and a successful journey today requires health and focus to succeed.
I had been assessed with a neuropathy which led to restricted movement in my right leg and ankle. A well-known back surgeon recommended a fusion procedure, which seemed drastic. Thanks to Geno I have been able to put together a nutrition, stretching, and exercise routine which is slowly helping me improve my condition, but more importantly, keep it from getting worse, and not going under the very risky process of spinal fusion which has a very limited track-record. Geno was able to arm me with factual information so I could dialogue with my physicians, and obtain some tough honest answers from them.Robert K.Wellness from within
When I was told that an MRI revealed a small tear in the meniscus of my right knee, I was advised by my doctor to engage in physical therapy before considering a surgical procedure. I had participated in regular exercise using kettle bells and was concerned that this injury would prevent me from this type of workout. I began working with Geno almost a year ago and with his advice regarding hydration, exercise, and nutrition, I have no pain in my knee at all. Specifically, Geno worked with me weekly using TRX, bands, and yoga techniques to improve strength in my ankles, glutes, and core. Geno is excellent with regard to his knowledge of anatomy and therapeutic direction. I am so grateful that he “fixed” the knee issue!Michel S.Heal thyself
I am excited to share my Geno story. I’m 57 years old and I have terrible knees. For 15 years i have learned to avoid stairs, “child’s pose” in yoga and any variation of a squat in Pilates. I have been told by multiple doctors that two knee replacements would be inevitable and sooner rather than later. I even had to give up driving a stick shift becuause the clutch was too painful. I had knee pain all day every day it just varied as to how much. I would never get down on the floor becuause I felt I would never get up. I thought I would soon have to sell my condo and get a one story unit which was horrifying at the young age of 57!! Then I met Geno. First of all the workouts are totally fun and he doubles as a therapist by the way. We started out primarily stretching and working on what felt like simple exercises that were building my butt and working my quads and moving my ankles and that would fix my knees. I was skeptical since I had a knee problem and not a quad problem. Three months later I have absolutely no knee pain. NEVER !! I take the stairs , I get down to sit on the floor to play with my dog and get up again with no effort. I am a completely different person living a different life. More confident and more active. I literally carry myself differently. I walk smarter and more briskly. I’ve toned down and can see my body shape changing. Now we are working with weights and I’m at a 3 minute plank only three months in !! The only challenge for me now is I have a “geno addiction” ! I highly recommend him to anyone who has a Mantra like I used to and says “I have bad knees” all the time. I said it all the time then but I can’t say it now ! I am up and down stairs all day long and do not feel it in my knees at all.Marcie MNo more bad knees!
“I began training with Geno roughly a year ago; coming in, initially, due to constant back and hip pain. We went through a series of focused strength training and intense breath work, poses and stretches that ultimately resolved ALL of my pain issues which have not returned. Instead of focusing on just those areas, Geno knew to hone in on my ankle and knee placement/support, my core and the rest is now history, literally!! He had been talking to me about food and mind/body being 80-90% of body issues and it was not something I took seriously until nearly a year into working with him. We have worked on a series of meal plans, detoxing from carbohydrates and sugar, introducing supplements and paying attention to stress and the headaches I would get several times a month.
I have lost, roughly, 7% body fat in a month and look and feel amazing. I have more movement and flexibility, no pain and look better than I have in quite some time. Geno has extensive training in physiology, kinetics, movement and yoga work. He does really bad Cartman impressions, ribbon dancing, jazz hands, makes you feel inadequate by showing off yoga moves you cannot do, but other than that, it is really fun to work out with him and something I look forward to each week.”Amy G."I have lost, roughly, 7% body fat in a month and look and feel amazing."
Geno is THE BEST and so much more than just a personal trainer! His workouts are tough, fun, and ever changing which has helped me attain my goal of losing weight and gaining flexibility. However, it has been his holistic approach to health that has been the most impactful. Geno has taught me how to manage blood sugar levels, identify how diet and food impacts allergies, and how to improve digestion. He is so knowledgeable about the human body and passionate about teaching, it’s easy to learn and apply the changes to daily life!
Geno truly encompasses Mind, Body, Food. He cares about his clients mental health, wellbeing, and life outside of the gym. The workouts are constantly changing, always fun, and efficient. Just when I get a movement down, he changes it and pushes me even further than I knew was possible. Geno has taught me so much about food and how it impacts my mood, digestion, blood sugar levels, and allergies – things I didn’t even realize were suffering when I met him. He is so passionate about health and explains things in a simple easy way to understand. His holistic approach to health has been empowering and life changing!Erica LGeno truly encompasses Mind, Body, Food. He cares about his clients mental health, wellbeing, and life outside of the gym.
I’ve worked with a number of trainers that tend to focus on just the physical aspect of your body, which depending on what you are looking to accomplish will work for you. However, I wanted to develop a lifestyle change that included the complete package (physical and nutritional) that would not only be results oriented, but sustainable, with my busy schedule. Geno has provided a balance program that helped me to strengthen and tone my muscles through my own body weight even through knee and shoulder injuries and provided nutritional guidance throughout the process that was trailered just for me. It has been a slow, but steady decline over the last year that resulted in a lost of 40lbs and 9% body fat. The best part of the journey has been that I don’t feel I have been deprived of any food that I love, I’m only making more informed choices on what I consume. Thanks Geno for listening to me and my body and helping me transform into my best version of myself.Donna KIt has been a slow, but steady decline over the last year that resulted in a lost of 50lbs and 10% body fat
Donna came in @ 225lbs with chronic knee problems and digestive issues when we started.Donna K Part 2Working through COVID 19
We worked to lose 40 lbs and resolve her digestive issues before she celebrated her 50th birthday. She wrote a testimonial celebrating her success. But COVID hit, and she couldn’t really celebrate with a trip to Italy. So we got back to work. In-person and remote. We worked consistently through the shutdown setting gradual goals. By reopening, she checked in @ 164 lbs. Over 60 lbs less than when we started. Down another 20 pounds and another 5% Body Fat, 4 inches around the waist, and a 30% decrease in abdominal skin fold since COVID. So proud.
"Working with Geno post-partum was probably the best thing I could have done to get my body back into moving and exercising at the right pace, customized for me. Geno really understands what happens to a woman's body after childbirth, and he was able to slowly work and focus on the right muscles in order to get my total body and overall strength back. Each session would start by telling him what felt 'off' on my body, and he would customize my workout based on that. Having that one on one focus, customized to my body's needs was really awesome and probably what kick started my body getting back into shape. I was able to learn how to do movements and toning on my own, and with correct form too, which was also a huge plus."Jackie RGeno really understands what happens to a woman's body after childbirth, and he was able to slowly work and focus on the right muscles in order to get my total body and overall strength back.
I was introduced to Geno to help me with my lower back pain. With a quiet confidence, Geno has not only solved my lower back problem but has truly improved my overall fitness and health. He is a fantastic person who really cares about helping people and I'm very fortunate to have met Geno and give him my highest recommendation. ~ Brian LBrian LNot only solved my lower back problem but has truly improved my overall fitness and health.
Geno has really made a significant impact on my life via both prenatal and postnatal training. For prenatal, he focused on training to provide physical support of pregnancy and delivery. With his support, I avoided many of the pains of pregnancy and a growing body by training, toning and strengthening the right areas of my body. I was also able to work out until right up to labor with him; he modified training based on where I needed support and where I was in my pregnancy journey. Going into labor better prepared not only allowed for an easier pregnancy but also provided a better starting point for recovery. His postnatal training helped me rebuild my pelvic floor, rebuild my strength and coordination and get back down to my pre-pregnancy weight quickly. I was cleared to work out at 8 weeks postpartum and by 16 weeks postpartum I was feeling better than I did pre-pregnancy. In both prenatal and postnatal training, Geno also focused on baby specific training to address the challenges that come from physically supporting a newborn such all day holding and feeding. Working with him allowed me to avoid the shoulder and back pain that most moms experience from holding the baby all day. In addition, my postnatal training aligned closely with COVID-19 arriving in the US, the virtual sessions offered allowed me to continue training and pelvic floor work. The virtual sessions work so well, especially as a new mom trying to find time, that I want to stay remote even in the post-pandemic world.Sabrina PGeno helped me rebuild my pelvic floor, rebuild my strength and coordination and get back down to my pre-pregnancy weight quickly.
Geno went above and beyond to support and encourage me through the process of making some really positive changes in my life. He's a compassionate listener, gives sound - and realistic! - advice, and I was amazed at how he checked in with me, always keeping track of my goals and making sure that I was sticking to our plan. He makes himself available to answer my questions and has such knowledgable, down-to-earth explanations. I can't say enough about this brilliant guy, and I'm so thankful to feel this much closer to optimal health as a result of his coaching! Thank you, Geno!!!DevynHe makes himself available to answer my questions and has such knowledgable, down-to-earth explanations
I first met Geno at the end of my 2nd trimester with my second son. This was a back-to-back pregnancy and I had been feeling so fatigued this time, especially with a little one to chance after, and had no desire to work out. After my first session with Geno, it felt like a weight had been lifted. I immediately booked three sessions a week with him and everything started turning around. Not only did I feel myself getting stronger every day, but I was also happier, my mood lighter, and I felt confident about going into delivery. But more than setting me up for delivery and helping me with my changing/uncomfortable body during pregnancy, I knew this work with Geno was setting me up for what would come after baby.
Two weeks after I gave birth, Geno and I were in dialogue about how and when to start exercising. He wanted to help prepare my body for exercise, so instead of jumping right back in, we began meeting a couple of times a week over zoom to stretch and build back neuro pathways and muscle memory as the foundation for what would come when I was cleared to begin working out again. This not only helped me physically but made me feel like I was taking care of myself at a point when my body was literally at the service of another human.Anna RosePrenatal and Postnatal Planning
I have never had a trainer as wise, smart, or attentive as Geno. Something I particularly valued as my body was still healing. Geno has always been very attuned to and observant of what is going on in my body, and that gave me so much security during my postpartum training sessions. Geno made such a difference in helping me heal and designing a plan that worked for my unique set of needs, that I encouraged my parents to start seeing him. Eight months later, they are each still training with him three days a week over zoom (they live in Michigan), and they credit him for so much of their mobility and pain management. Geno brings such a unique skill set, a wealth of knowledge, and kindness to his practice, that I only wish everyone were able to have the gift of training with him.Anna Rose Part 2Prenatal and Postnatal Planning
