    I greatly enjoy the Zumba Gold class that Tony teaches at the Mid-County Community Center. I look forward to going and feel great afterwards. I hope he will continue to teach this class.

    Thank you so much Mary! I love teaching at Mid-County. I cannot wait to see you every Thursday at 1030pm!

    Tony has taught our Zumba Gold classes at Mid-County for the past year, and I am delighted to recommend him highly for his wonderful work. He is enthusiastic, and has an abundance of positive energy. We eagerly anticipate his class every week, and he motivates everyone in the group to **move** and give 100 percent. We all feel happier and healthier due to the energy, passion, and commitment he imparts. We forget our age when he is leading our classes! Thank you, Tony!

    I would recommend Tony's classes and personal training to anyone. My husband and I love his classes because he works all of the little muscles that most trainers ignore. When I was pregnant with my 2nd child we hired him to do personal training with me and he was great. I had severe hip problems relating to the pregnancy and he helped me work out and stay in shape (I only gained 25 lbs!). His workout had an added benefit of reducing my hip problems, which even my physical therapist couldn't do! I wish I had known him during my first pregnancy. He is a great guy, very personable and professional, and he clearly loves what he does.

    I have known Tony for over 20 years and we have always found him to be very professional, energetic, creative and very effective in his programming for everyone he works with. He is always striving to improve his skills and implement them where appropriate. He is friendly, reliable and very considerate of everyone's needs. We look forward to continuing and growing our professional relationship for many years to come.

    Tony is the best personal trainer I have had the chance to work with. He knows how to train clients of every fitness level, when to push a client and when to hold back, and best of all he nurtures his clients. He doesn't simply teach others, he continues to grow as a personal trainer and learn new techniques. If you have a chance to take one of his classes, do it, you will enjoy the experience and get a great workout.

    If you are having an off day and a workout seems like too much have a chat with him. I'd be surprised if he didn't have you feeling up to the challenge within a few minutes.
