Thank you Steve for helping me becoming a better me!
I have struggled through the years to find a workout plan that I can stick to. Going from gym to gym and workout programs like Insanity gave me a brief moment of fulfillment but soon changed to my old habits of struggling to find a workout that I could stick with and actually enjoy without becoming too boring. I am glad to have found Steve and BE1ST Fitness! His workouts are designed to make each and every person better while maintaining a fun atmosphere. The environment is very friendly with everyone supporting one another in doing their best. Steve motivates me to do my best every workout and give it everything that I have. I’ve lost over 5% body fat, 15 pounds, and find my clothes fitting better in only a few short months. Thank you Steve for helping me becoming a better me!

Wendy is always dedicated, which keeps me so motivated!
helped me gain strength and confidence in my ability.
I have had the privilege of working with the trainer Wendy Cohen for the last few months and it has been a fabulous experience. She has really helped me gain strength and confidence in my ability. It was very hard for me to get started back to working out but she really encouraged me to work through the aches and pains. She has truly become a key component in my health and fitness journey and without her I would still be sitting at home wishing I was doing something to help myself get healthy and fit. She continues to be an intricate part of my mission to good health and a stronger more lean body. I am so thankful for all I have learned from her and I know that she will continue to be an inspiration to me.
Inspiring us all with your energy and passion!
A big thanks to Wendy for Believing in me, pushing me past my comfort zone and making me realize I can do so much more than I thought. Even if I feel like I’m dying, in the moment, its worth it. This is exactly what makes me feel stronger, a survivor, a winner! Keep doing what you are doing , your inspiring us all with your energy and passion!
Wendy is such a great trainer!
Wendy is such a great trainer! Her workouts are always high intensity and NEVER boring! She is always changing it up to make sure we are getting the best out of our workout at BE1ST. She is tough but extremely personable as well.
training sessions allowed me to lose over 20 pounds within a matter of months
Wendy honestly cares about her clients and the people she is training. As a personal trainer, she ensures that she gives each and every person her undivided attention and helps them reach their goals. I wouldn’t be as fit or healthy as I am today without her. Her one on one training sessions allowed me to lose over 20 pounds within a matter of months. She is passionate about what she does and her enthusiasm and high energy show through in each of her workouts. She is continuing to grow and improve as a personal trainer with no limitations in sight!
Wendy makes sure your best is the best you got.
This is a testimonial regarding Wendy Cohen and how she interacts with her participants as a trainer at BE1ST. Wendy is a caring, patient person who understands the different skill levels of those who are in class. She is able to work her routine with modifications, if necessary, to make sure that each of us gets the most out of her workout. Wendy has been known to come along side of you to instruct you personally. Wendy runs a demanding class that is challenging and difficult but when you are done with the class you feel like you conquered the "beast". In short Wendy makes sure your best is the best you got.
You feel like it's a personal training session but in a totally relaxed fun environment.
BE1ST Fitness is an incredible and different gym experience. Its is so much different than the normal gym routine . You will be doing things you have never done before but loving every minute of it. Every day is something new and exciting. Steve pushes you to limits that you didn't know you had. He does all of this under careful watch that your form is correct so that you are getting the most out of your class or session. If you tell him your not comfortable doing something he will modify it for you but still keep you in step with the class. You feel like it's a personal training session but in a totally relaxed fun environment. It's is never boring and everyone working out next to you is rooting for you as well as helping each other out. We are always cheering each other on ! It feels like a little family there. I honestly believe that Steve truly wants you to feel good about yourself and see results. I have had many trainers and I can say that Steve is the best!
Very happy with the progress I made
September 2013... Not feeling too happy with my physical state, I tried the free trainer session at my gym. The "trainer" was ridiculously scary. To my relief, after the evaluation session, he suggested I'd go with Steve. A bit skeptical, I went back and the training Steve offered was totally different: it was adequate to what I was capable of doing, he explained what and how to do it, his tone was nice yet firm and it was fun. Ever since then, I train with Steve 3 times a week. I feel much better, am very happy with the progress I made, noticed changes in my body and look forward to train (something I would never have expected saying!!!). Steve is a great trainer, he is ambitious and ambitious for you, even when you doubt your capacities. His work shows the care and passion he has for fitness. I guess the way his business is growing, the way people are leaving the gym with smily sweaty faces and all the different classes he offers are the best proofs that if you are looking for an efficient, safe, yet fun way to get in shape, don't look any further!
this is the ONLY workout that can get me out of bed
Bootcamps at Be1st Fitness have been a great experience for me. It takes a lot to motivate me to want to workout and this is the ONLY workout that can get me out of bed and motivated on a saturday morning or in the evening after a busy day! And when I feel like quitting or slowing down Steve is there to keep me on track with his motivating words, and emails making sure I do all I can to stay on the path to a healthier me!
Be1st has motivated me in ways i thought were never possible
Working out used to be a once in a while thing for me. I always thought of my self being a great athlete strong fast in shape never thought i needed to workout. When i would workout i would do typical things bench press, curls, shoulder press, etc.. I got dragged to my first boot camp class at the end of 2014. What i was hearing about these classes i thought they were pretty dumb and i thought i would get nothing out of it because i thought i was in shape, athletic and strong, but was i wrong. That first class kicked my butt. At the end of the class i was asked "so what did you think?" What i thought was that class was insane and i wasn't coming back but what i said "it was good i liked it.". Did i think i was coming back no, but did I, yes, because that class was not only the most fun i've had working out but it was the best workout i've had in a long time. I workout at be1st 5 times a week, i take at 3 classes a week sometimes more and it never gets old the trainers are always thinking of new things to do, different ways to push you, get you stronger and more comfortable with who you are. Be1st has motivated me in ways i thought were never possible, i recommend this place to everyone i know, im proud to be a part of the family here at be1st fitness.
BE1ST is exactly what I was looking for.
BE1ST is exactly what I was looking for. I was previously doing cardio but nothing to tone my muscles. Here at BE1ST with Steve, I'm able to stay motivated and in shape. The workouts are always challenging to keep you in great shape. Since June 2014 to now I see a big difference not only with my weight but with my overall muscle tone. Thanks to my trainer for pushing me right to my limits.
After a month it was clear that I had found a new home at Be1st.
I clearly had no idea what was in store for me when I took my first class at Be1st. I walked into the gym with extreme joint pain and zero confidence in my endurance. That all changed when I met Steve. He immediately instilled confidence and urged me to take it slow but to challenge myself at each session. After a month it was clear that I had found a new home at Be1st. The once a week class turned into two and before you knew it, I was taking multiple classes per week. My joint pain disappeared, I was dropping inches and pounds, and my strength was increasing on a daily basis. I also made friends who share my love of our classes and trainers. I can't imagine doing this without our Be1st family! Now nearly a year later, I credit Be1st as the partner on my journey to a new and improved me!
Steve cares and wants his members to get results
-I have been working with Steve, owner of BE1ST, for just about 2 years. I have worked with other trainers before but never got the results I wanted and therefore gave up. I decided to give personal training another chance and I am glad I did. I felt Steve understood me on day one. He listened and heard what my goals were, he noticed my strength's and helped me in a very sensitive way with my weaknesses. He made me feel like I can do it...and pushed me to limits I never thought was possible. In October 2014 I completed a half marathon which would have been impossible to achieve prior to me training with Steve. He encourages me to keep challenging myself. He also took into consideration all my back issues with every workout. He knew how to make modifications but still allowed me to get results. My overall belief is that Steve cares and wants his members to get results....I am onto my next challenge and he is supporting me and I believe with his expertise and my motivation I will get there !!! Being healthy and fit never felt so good !!!
