    I had recently done an informational interview with Tony and he was so helpful! Since he has experience in such a vast array of the health and fitness world, he was able to answer any questions I had related to health and fitness and even business. Tony is an individual who truly cares about the people he meets and connects with. Thank you so much for all you have done Tony!

    Tony is an excellent teacher! With his always pleasant disposition, he leads his class, always providing the instructions to movement at exactly the right pace in advance of every change in pattern.
    With my recent move to Silver Spring, Zumba at the Montgomery Rec Center was my first introduction to “Senior” exercise. Prior to attending, I must admit I had some hesitation, because I was concerned that the class may not be intense enough. Then I met the instructor, Tony, who excels at demonstrating both low and higher impact to each Zumba moves. Thanks to the motivation of Tony, the class is just PERFECT! Tony, I especially like when you modify the class with new exercise, it keeps me motivated to push myself to my personal best.
    Thank you Tony, you are an excellent instructor!

    Regards,
    Loretta D Dougherty

    I've trained with Tony for about 6 years now, and plan to continue to train with him. He has an excellent personality and is focused on helping you as best as he can. He's very knowledgeable in pretty much all aspects of the fitness world and will gladly share what he knows with you. Tony is flexible and accommodating to my schedule. He's truly a great person and I look forward to continuing to work with him.

    Response by Tony Bryan, Sr. on Sep 06, 2016

    Thank you so much Jackie. I enjoy training your sister Jen and you every week for the last 6 years! Wow! Been that long! See you guys soon.

    The thing about Tony that sets him apart from other fitness instructors is that he is really smart, has great intuition, and he is focused on his clients (instead of on himself). Moreover, you catch the joy he radiates and want to work your hardest for him while also having fun with him. I've never met another fitness instructor that comes close.

    How I miss you so...
