    If you are looking for a personal trainer STOP! Your search is over. Ron Palillo is hands down the best trainer. Through different gyms and workout programs I have worked with several trainers over the past 20 years and none of them can come close to Ron. Ron has helped me train at many different levels for over 5 years. Ron’s workouts are challenging but I enjoyed every minute of it. No two sessions are exactly the same which will keep you motivated and coming back for more. When we started I needed to get back in shape after I had my first two children. Ron helped me get back to a place where I was happy with myself, I could play competitively on my soccer team, and I even decided to dabble in the running community. My focus then changed to long distance running. Ron then tailored our workouts to help me attain my ultimate goal…a marathon. Together Ron helped me achieve that goal. Then our focus had to change again. At about the same time I learned I was pregnant with my third child, and I also tore my ACL. That did not stop my training sessions. Once I informed Ron of our new training obstacles he created a plan that would strengthen my leg and hamstring for eventual surgery as well as keep me and the baby health throughout the pregnancy. You may be asking yourself what else can Ron do? Well, my third delivery was an emergency C-section. After all that Ron has helped me achieve I believe what I am most grateful for is helping me recover from the surgery. I never would have been able to regain the core strength without his dedication and encouragement.
    I am forever grateful to Ron for all that he has helped me achieve over the years.

    I’m the kind of girl that needs to be inspired to work out. Having someone knowledgeable, fun and who knows how to get the most out of my workout time is what gets me going. That’s why I’ve been training with Ron Palillo for over 14yrs. I saw how he trained other men and women at the gym and knew instantly that his genuine concern for his client’s individual health and fitness needs and his sense of humor was just what I needed in a trainer. Ron gave me personalized advice on nutrition and gave me specific exercises to fit my needs. Working out with Ron has made me more conscious of how I treat my body. He is very caring and attentive to what my limits are and how far he can push me. He encourages and motivates me to do better, and yet he knows how much I am capable of. I always look forward to my training sessions. No matter how I feel when I enter the gym I always have a great workout and leave feeling strong.

His professionalism, extensive knowledge and enthusiastic commitment to his work and ultimately his clients, provides the perfect scenario for success and sets foundations for a new healthier lifestyle. He makes each workout challenging, creative and most importantly, fun – yes fun! He also places a high value on correct form with each exercise. He motivates me to push past my perceived limits to get results. If you are serious about changing your life for the better, Ron will lead you every step of the way.

    Thank you Ron, you are the best!

    I have been training with Ron for almost 10 years. Ron is an extremely knowledgeable, caring and passionate trainer. I have had multiple injuries, a pregnancy and the struggle of getting back into shape after pregnancy and Ron guided me through it all. I swore I would never have the ability to be an athlete again after having my son, but the sessions I have had with Ron have really helped transform myself into even better shape than before. He will push you, even when you think you have nothing left. He puts thought and care into every session and will really concentrate on ensuring you have proper form and that you are giving it your all. I continually surprise myself with my growing strength and ability to push myself beyond my limits and I truly attribute that to Ron's guidance. I couldn't be happier with him as my trainer and highly recommend him.

    I have been training with Ron for 10+ years now. His professionalism, knowledge, passion, and enthusiasm is beyond what I could have ever asked for and wanted in a trainer. He has helped me through 3 ACL surgeries and most recently a pretty bad back injury. He is always ensuring I have proper form and continuously educates me every step of the way to help prevent me from any further type of injuries. I am big into Crossfit and Ron pushes me beyond my limits and gives me the confidence and motivation I need to be the best version of me. I believe every PR I hit is due to his ability to make me believe in myself. I honestly can’t say enough good things about Ron. I am so happy to have him as my trainer and friend. I highly recommend Ron. Your outlook on fitness and training will never be the same. You will gain an amazingly positive trainer, coach, mentor, and friend.
