Before going to Carsten, I had never set foot in a gym. Over the past several years I have become more and more self conscious of my rising weight, blood pressure and overall lack of energy. Carsten went far beyond what I thought a trainer would do. First, he took me grocery shopping, looking at the foods that I had been buying and helping me modify my selections to healthier choices without overwhelming me with a diet I could never stick to. I told him that I also eat out a lot and he took me to lunch and taught me to order smarter food off the menu. In the gym, Carsten is my biggest cheerleader; he has the gift of knowing exactly how hard to push me to maximize my workout without going overboard and scaring you away. Most of all, he has helped me adapt healthier habits that I can take with me for the rest of my life.– James S.
