"Since hiring on my personal trainer from A Better U, I have lost about 12 lbs and 8% body fat in 2 months and I am feeling great! Getting in shape is all about discipline and pushing yourself. A Better U personal training did just that, motivating me to start working out, discipline myself to stay on a routine schedule, and learning how to exercise and lift weights properly!ABetter Ualso applied themselves to my schedule and met me at my gym, allowing me to continue my normal routine. I would recommendA Better Upersonal trainingto anyone who is serious about getting in shape and living a healthy lifestyle. Thanks"A BetterU" for your great service! "- Joshua Dziabiak, CEO, josMedia, LLC. & Next In Line Records"I started withA Better Ujust over 8 months ago, with lofty goals and very little motivation! I desperately wanted a "quick fix" but knew that no such thing existed. Ultimately, I wanted results that I could maintain. The results so far have been amazing! I have lost over 35 pounds and over 9% body fat. My biggest improvement by far has not been what I have lost, but instead, what I have gained. My stamina and energy levels have increased dramatically, as well as my over-all health and mindset. In the beginning, it was the accountability to my trainer that kept me going. Now, I look forward to my sessions as part of my daily routine!Jasonwas able to apply knowledge in ways that targeted all of my specific goals while maximizing the very little time that I had to dedicate. My trainer (Jason) created a workout regime that was structured to be challenging yet achievable, and focused on both my long and short-term goals. If it hadn't been for A Better U's flexibility, personal attention and constant encouragement, I am certain that I would not look or feel as I do today! I can honestly say that since starting with FocusQwest, my overall quality of life has improved significantly. I no longer view my personal training as a luxury, but as an essential part of my new, healthy lifestyle! Thank you! "- Wendy Burlingame, President & Director, Great Expectations"As a physician, I knew the do's and don'ts of nutrition and exercise but despite that knowledge, I continued to gain weight and didn't follow an exercise regime. I had tried every fad diet and joined all the right health clubs but the results were always the same - as soon as I stopped dieting, the weight came right back! With my busy work schedule, I always had a ready excuse why I couldn't take the time to make nutritious meals or go to the the gym regularly. When I turned 50 this year, I decided it was time to make a serious lifestyle change. I had previously received a brochure from A Better U personal training and had saved it in a drawer for 2 years! I finally got up the nerve and motivation and called the trainer. I started working with the personal trainer at home in September of 2005 and 8 months later, I've lost 70 lbs! I've lost weight before, but for the first time, I'm fit and toned. The exercise has become such an important part of my life and I continue to exercise at least 3 to 4 times a week. I try to eat a balanced diet but I'm no longer starving myself as I did with other diets. I'm continuing to lose weight and inches because of the regular exercise. The weight loss and my improved health and personal well-being have made me a true convert - exercising is now an essential component of my lifestyle. My trainer has pushed, encouraged, and challenged me every step and that kind of attention is just what the doctor ordered! "- Dr. Marie R. Baldisseri"I have been very impressed by Jason Montgomery, in particular. We have continued a referal relationship sinceA Better U began in 2001. Jason is knowlegable of the human anatomy as well as the body's natural response to exercise & nutrition, and he has high success rates.
I would strongly reccomend A Better U to any of my clients who are in need of a personalized fitness program, or weight loss in general. I know Jason truely cares about each of his clients... if there is ever a safety issue or health concern he calls me just to confirm safe program procedures or to review his exercise prescriptions. "- Dr. John Shanley" I began working out with Jason and Jeff in November of 2007 to prepare myself for my wedding. I have been at it for 3 months and feel fantastic especially after today’s results! My first two weigh- ins were frustrating; I just wasn’t getting the results I wanted. To get me more focused Jason put me on a low cal diet in which the menu changes every 2 weeks. Well, today I had my third weigh-in and within my last ten sessions I have lost 15 pounds!!!! I am so excited and feel fantastic. My advice to all is to just get past those first couple of months even if you don’t think you are getting results. The hard work will pay off it just takes time and patience-I’m proof. Good luck to you all!"- Jen D., (26)" I am a full time working mother of 4 young children who just kept making excuses for not being able to work out. I have only been "at it" for 2 weeks with "A better U"...but after only 6 classes, my energy level has skyrocketed, I'm sleeping better and I feel amazing! I can't wait for the next session to see the real results which = weight loss, inches lost and increased strength and stamina. If anyone can help me achieve my goals, these guys can!!!!!! "- Karen (38yrs old)"I have been a client of Jason's since 2008 when I moved back to Pittsburgh. I love having a personalized workout that challenges me and most recently one that has worked around an old elbow injury, then surgery. I have been able to successfully drop body fat and weight even with an injury! Thank you Jason for keeping me motivated and on track. My before and after pics aren't far off! I feel great and couldn't be more pleased with my results."- Jamie Hampers (33), Mom & real estate agent"Exercise has always seemed like a chore to me, but I knew it was something I needed to do. Once I discovered Fitness in the Park, that all changed. I now look forward to exercising and thoroughly enjoy the workouts. Not only are the workouts fun to do, but the results have been great too. I am now in the best shape of my life. After having participated in the program for the last 4 months, I have now lost over 30 pounds, dropped 4 sizes, and lost over 16 1/2 inches. I no longer hide behind baggy clothes and avoid cameras. I am proud of myself and accomplished more than I ever thought possible!"- Angie D, Fitness in the Park"
What started as sort of a “joke” became something I just can’t do without! There was an email advertisement for boot camp and my best friend and I joked that this was exactly what we needed – someone to literally “whip” us into shape! I must admit when we actually did sign-up we were apprehensive: “could we keep up; would it be worth the time; what were we expecting to achieve…”. All answers were clear immediately following our first week: well, we could sort of keep up; it was definitely worth our time (having muscle aches where we didn’t even know we had muscles); and, Jason was straightforward & honest about setting real expectations. At the conclusion of first month my clothes were fitting differently, my bulbous; jiggling body was changing shape; and I had such an increase in strength and stamina, I was surprised – almost 3 inches off my thighs – really…? How big were they?!?!? I have been attending Jason’s camps for 5 months (going into month 6) and am so pleased with the results! Initially, I could do no more than 10 push-ups (on knees); I could scarcely lift the 5lbs weights – now I just want to say, “bring it on – what little surprises do you have for us this evening, Jason?!?!? Ah-ha, I am now capable of doing standard push-ups and I’m progressing to 10 lbs weights! The classes are, on no account, routine –Jason is constantly switching things up; we never know what to expect (definitely NOT predictable); and he is incredibly patient, committed and displays a genuine goal of helping each individual achieve tremendous results. The fact that I’m still sticking with boot camp is a huge testimony to what a great program this is – we never want to miss a class – truly! I get so many comments on what better shape I am in – but in the final analysis, the real benefit is how it makes me feel about myself! I think I speak for our group in sharing, we don’t want to go back to the way we felt before….so, hopefully we’ll see many more new faces next month! Come give it a try – it’s never boring; definitely challenging- no matter your fitness level -; and most of all, you will feel incredible!
"- Lisa G., CMU"I have been doing Fitness in the Park for the last six months and can honestly say that it’s a great workout. Jason has been offering a good solid workout that is for someone who wants to work hard and see results. I have always worked out at home doing step aerobics that at times seemed difficult and hard to get through. I have seen a noticeable difference in my strength and endurance and on my boot camp off days the aerobics are much easier. This is a class that is good for everyone because it progressively gets more challenging and pushes you to the next level, it never gets boring (the hour goes quickly). If your goal is to lose weight or just tone your body then this is something that is worth a try! "- Lori Gibson"
So, I’m not the most motivated person out there. I want the results, but have struggled to find a program that can accommodate my less than athletic build, whiny nature, and overall reluctance to sweat. I’ve tried almost every class out there, and have joined every gym in the tri-state area during the last 15 years. When I started at Jason’s boot camp, I was both hopeful and skeptical. Hopeful that this would finally be the right fit for me, and skeptical that anyone could make working out something that I enjoyed. I am pleased to report that I am now one of those people that I have seen over the years (in all those classes and gyms) looking forward to working out, and actually loving it! I don’t know if it’s the camaraderie that the all girls’ class generates, or the atmosphere that Jason creates that has made an exerciser out of me, but whatever it is, it works! I mean it REALLY works! I’ve only been at it a few weeks, but already I find myself being excited about going to camp, and have begun to enjoy the side of effects of all that "camping". At last, I’m getting my results. But perhaps more importantly, I think I’ve finally found my fit….(ness).
