Testimonials

OKSANA LUTSYSHYNA

JD May was my trainer for about a year and a half.We met twice a week, and he had workouts ready for me. One thing that I noticed right away was how thorough JD always was. We never wasted any time. JD knew howto make every minute count, and he would make sure that I actually did the necessary number of repetitions, and did them correctly (and yes, at times it *did* hurt,especially the leg presses). JD is also very responsible: he really watched out for me, made sure all the workouts were safe, and gave advice about food intake.He is one of the most organized and well-meaning people I met: he never canceled any sessions, we were able to keep the schedule, and he was always very kind tome. Even if I messed up.

Having JD as my trainer changed my life: it meant the world to know that I am not alone in this endeavor. A good trainer becomes your guide and your friend. I actually learned to enjoy exercising. Now when I moved away, I still exercise because he helped me to develop a habit. I also remember his teaching me about different muscle groups and how to exercise them best (and now I know where the triceps are, and why it is important to exercise the back).

BROOKE FEELER

"I’ve been with THRC for 5 years now, and I’ve never enjoyed a gym more than this one! They are my family away from home. Someone always greets you at the door and makes you feel comfortable as soon as you arrive. I worked with one of the trainers, JD May, and he continues to motivate me and cheer me on beyond our sessions together. I have never known a more motivated or encouraging trainer than JD. I will continue to be a member of THRC as long as I live in San Marcos!"

I joined THRC in mid March and it was honestly the best decision I had ever made. I wasn’t eating properly and wanted to change that but didn’t know where to start and I had the time and  commitment of wanting to work out but felt so intimidated by the whole aspect of it.

For the longest time I was constantly going through phases of working out and trying to eat healthy. I just could not stay committed. To be honest, I thought working out was boring and not for me. I got to the point where all I did was complain about my unhealthy habits and realized how annoying I probably sounded to everyone.
