As a mid-50s professional, I have little time to concentrate on the status of my physical wellbeing. The years of neglect were showing. In making the smart move to hire Mark as my personal trainer over a year ago, I am definitely seeing the reinvigorated-self return. The convenience of Mark offering these workout sessions in my office is hugely valuable to me. His sessions are no less grueling, however, since he incorporates the use of bands in nearly all the exercises. Mark's ability to customize and continually monitor the core-building exercises demonstrates his knowledge and study of his customer's needs. He provides additional resources even after the session has ended by emailing YouTube videos and providing advice that might help achieve success with a more difficult routine. The results that I am seeing in my overall balance and muscle strength have been tremendous. Investing in myself again, with Angelelli Fitness as my guide, has never felt so good!
I was a bit apprehensive about working out with bands at first, but I figured I would give it a try. I have been using weights for years with other personal trainers, but was able to achieve a lot of the same results with the bands. Due to some physical conditions I have, I was limited to how and when I could do cardio, if at all. To my surprise, I was getting a pretty good cardio workout at the same time, killing two birds with one stone. This made my cardiologist happy and got him off my back about doing cardio. I also found that the bands didn't stress my body out like weights did from time to time. Being 55 years old, this was huge for me. I highly recommend Mark as a trainer. He does a great job.
As an avid golfer in my late sixties, I am keenly aware of the importance of maintaining the highest possible level of flexibility as I continue to age. I was beginning to have issues with my hips and lower back that made it difficult for me to play golf at the level I was accustomed to. In developing a workout routine, I wanted not only to improve muscle tone and flexibility, but also to create a routine that specifically targeted the golf swing. Mark took the time to listen to my specific goals and developed a band exercise program that clearly helped me reduce the pain and stiffness that was hindering my golf swing. As a senior, I was apprehensive about doing various exercises properly, not only to get the maximum results, but to avoid potential injury. By reading instructions or watching videos, I was never certain I was doing an exercise correctly. Having a professional to personally guide me through this process was invaluable. And on that aspect, Mark excelled! I have no doubt that Angelelli Fitness has helped me create a program that will lead me to several more years of enjoyable golf.
