As a woman in her middle years, I was watching my weight gradually creep up, and along with it, a sense of discouragement. I had seen the ads for Bodynetix and, at first, believed that this level of training was beyond my abilities. Boy, was I wrong! One day, I mustered the courage to try a class. What I saw amazed me! Women my age and older were in the class, all getting strong and fit. As my confidence grew, I could feel muscles I never knew I had becoming toned and strong. My newly found body confidence has, in turn, led to a general sense of life confidence. If I can get through a challenging workout at Bodynetix, I can handle anything that life throws at me! I feel fantastic, people comment that I look great and I can say that my stress level has dropped more than 50% since I started classes. The workouts are varied, never dull and Chris, Carl, and Nathan put everything they have into their training. They are positive, encouraging, and enthusiastic! Bodynetix will literally change how you feel physically, and mentally! Give it a try!
I have been going to BodyNetix FitCamp for for over 3 months and don't ever see myself stopping. Personally, I had struggled with traditional gyms for years... with accountability, knowing what to do, and being able to push myself. When I joined BodyNetix, Chris, Carl and Nathan helped me overcome all of those struggles. The trainers have helped me get on the right track to meet my goals, and push me to work harder than I ever thought I could. BodyNetix has not only physically helped me, but mentally too. I'm stronger now knowing I CAN do it!! For those of you who are wondering if BodyNetix is for you - the simple answer is YES! The trainers help you achieve your goals, whatever they may be and push you to do better than you ever thought you could. Thank-you BodyNetix, for all you do!!
Last year I had gained 30 pounds by not eating healthy and not exercising. As happy as I tried to be with my body, I just didn't have any self confidence in myself. I blamed my knee injury, my work, but most of all I blamed myself. Finally, I was tired of carrying the extra weight and started working with BodyNetix to get back into shape! I enrolled myself in the 12 week, 3 day a week FitCamp and The Results Club weightloss program. I knew it was going to be hard as I work full time, but having 19 FitCamps starting at 6AM to choose from and an online booking site made it easier to manage. Its been really hard work, but with the help and encouragement of Chris Ketch, Carl Ketch, and Nathan Mahon, I have been able to lose 18 pounds so far! I'm more energized, my family, coworkers and friends keep telling me how good I look, but most importantly I FEEL GREAT! If I can do it YOU CAN TOO!!!!!!!
My testimony is regarding the wonderful friendly, motivational, encouraging support you have provided me during the last six months since I have come to BodyNetix to up my overall strength and conditioning. I chose to make BodyNetix my home after the testimony and praise of members who have found support and obtained results before me. I have been challenged and made more gains than I could have imagined. The fitcamps you offer have me wanting more. Even with an extremely busy schedule I make time for FitCamp because I am de-stressed, energized, feel fit, healthy and more self-confident as a result. I have tried to reach my goals on my own but have found greater success and enjoyment in classes at Bodynetix. Thank you for helping me to exceed expectations of my level of fitness and aim higher. You have offered sensible and knowledgeable feedback, suggestions and advice. Long distance running is easier, packing kids and groceries done with ease, physical work less challenging and the change is noticed by friends and family. I look forward to ongoing attendance at your fitcamps and maintaining strength and health.
We moved to the Comox Valley 3 years ago and it has taken until now to find a class, instructor and fitness regime that suits my style and fits into my very busy schedule. I was fortunate enough to win fit camp passes in a raffle a few months ago and I have to say it is without a doubt the best thing I have ever won!! Nathan varies the workout from one day to the next, keeping my zest to attend classes very much alive and working different parts of the body on each occasion. He is a true motivator and drives me to push towards and often exceed my goals. I still have a way to go to get to my ultimate fitness levels, but I am definately on the right track, in the right class, with the right trainer. Thank you Bodynetix, and thank you Nathan!
The Bodynetix experience is, quite frankly, remarkable. The trainers will insist that you commit to your workouts - not for any reason other than complete support to make you the most fit that you can be: regardless of your age, capabilities or fears. You will reach deep and you will sweat. You might even curse, but you will be thankful and look forward to the next workout, because you will see and feel the changes in your body almost immediately. I am very grateful for the time and energy I've put in at Bodynetix. I began by working with Chris in one-on-one training when I had injuries that seemed insurmountable. Now, years later, I've joined Fitcamp and recently Hot Pilates, and I am thankful for Chris, Carl, Nathan and Cathy, whose knowledge, passion and drive continue to motivate me daily. Every day, year after year. I am also thankful for Glen, who keeps staff and clients accountable in the best way possible, and for the friendships I've made with other wonderful Bodynetix buffs! The Comox Valley has so many great businesses and this is truly one of them.
Bodynetix is what fitness training is all about! From the moment you meet the guys, you feel like you've hit home and are finally about to step into a healthy lifestyle and stay there. In the past, I'd joined gyms, bought DVD's and promised myself I'd workout at home - I think we all know how this ends. Once my daughter was born, I had some excess pounds to drop, so I decided to take a serious step toward a healthy lifestyle and join. After my first month with the 2-Day FitCamp, I knew I was a lifer - It's been 2 years now and can't imagine my life without it. I've gained strength, stability, endurance, confidence, knowledge, some great friends and a HUGE belief in myself. I can sleep and focus better, my posture has improved and I have more than enough energy to keep up with my toddler and handle my busy life (without coffee). Chris and Carl have had my back since day one, Nathan keeps me guessing what's next, and they have never let me accept anything but 100%. For every 'fence and back' they are right there, making sure your giving your all, the whole way. For every mountain climber, push-up or 'core-cardio combo' they are there, pushing that last rep out of you. I'm never bored, leave exhausted and feel like I'm part of a family. I highly recommend Bodynetix to everyone!
You guys are amazing fitness trainers! You have such different personalities, but your styles complement each other and what you do works. I would think that you both must getting worn out from the demands of your job (getting up so early, putting in such long hours, dealing with clients all day long), but it doesn't show. Your dedication to getting the best out of the class meant that I worked harder than I ever have and even though it hurt sometimes, it was totally worth it and I loved every minute. Thank you for such a great experience!
Chris and Carl are the best! They both give and expect 100% from their participants. Just when you think you can't do another bi-cep curl or another mountain-climber, they're always there encouraging you to keep going. The fitcamps run by BodyNetix are absolutely fabulous! Having not had success with traditional fitness club memberships in the past I knew I needed to do something to change my lazy ways. The workouts are both fun and challenging. I sometimes go into a workout feeling tired and "not in the mood" and it amazes me how as the workout goes on I get more and more energy. By the time it's over I feel fantastic and ready for life! I have been in the program since November with my motivation at that time being to get in reasonable shape for a trip to Mexico. The results of those early sessions were enough motivation for me to keep going with the program. Since November I have lost approx. 11lbs, have gone down a clothing size, and most importantly feel stronger both inside and out. I feel that this increased strength is helping me to get through 2 life changes happening at the same time - a new home and a new job.
All three instructors are great. They each have different ways of teaching therefore you are never bored. Encouragement is always given and they always push you hard. The program is as follows: Have you ever been in a gym class and found yourself looking at the time ? Well this class you do not have time to look at the clock. It is an energetic camp that is full of hard (sometimes unwanted exercise like burpees!) combined with cardio and weights all in one very fast hour. I do not know how Carl and Chris do it but this is the first camp that I have been and never know what is coming up. I love it because I'm never bored.
The instructors are always positive and energetic, but not so positive that you want to kick them. They really seem to believe that I can do whatever they throw at me and that makes me believe in myself. I have been training with BodyNetix since September of 2007. I remember at the beginning when we did cardio, that I would wheeze so badly that I was certain I had asthma. I had it checked out and it turned out that it was caused by poor fitness. Now, when I do the cardio portion, I not only keep up, but I don't wheeze at all. I could go on at great lengths about my increased strength and energy, my ability to fit into smaller clothes, and how exercise makes me a better person by relieving my stress (my family thanks you), but I would like to mention pain relief. Months ago, I had to go to physiotherapy for knee pain. I went back to exercising, but new knee pain struck. A little disheartened, I spoke to Carl about it and he helped me to pinpoint my weakness and gave me exercises to strengthen it. I have been knee-pain free since - and that has been longer than six months!
I love the way you motivate us all, you tap into that inner drive with discipline and humour...a great mix! I love the way the program is different every week, new excersies with greater challenges keeps the workout from becoming tedious. I look forward to the abuse every time I come! I have to say that after 5 weeks my muscle tone has greatly increased, along with my energy levels. I'm getting muscles that I didn't even know existed!
The instructors have been great so far. They all work hard and are positive and very helpful in motivating and instructing. Classes are well planned out and the entire hour is used to its max. It's always a positive vibe, and the energy is up beat and professional. I'm really enjoying the class. It's everything that I thought it would be and more. I was looking for motivation from this class and the instructors are delivering, they continue to push my limits. The classes have been great; I feel healthy and strong again and look forward to have an active athletic summer. I appreciate all the hard work and effort the instructors give and would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to kick-start their health and fitness level.
I think Chris, Carl and Michelle are great. They are always very friendly, ready to go and are very motivating. Their positive energy shows and is transferred over to the class. The instructors are very encouraging and give that extra "push" to make you want to try harder, and to WANT to do that last rep that you didn't think that you had it in you. I love the class that I am in. Even on the days that I don't feel very energetic I have never regretted going. The program is fun and well thoughtout. It has never been boring or run of the mill, there is always lots of variety in the exercises that you do. There is lots of motivation from all the instructors and they are always there to answer any questions or to show a modification if needed. I have recommended these classes to lots of people. I have been training with Bodynetix since March 4 2008. I have felt a noticeable difference in my strength and energy. This hour away helps me to let go of any stress that I may be feeling and to just have fun. Even on those days that I have been too sore to move it hasn't been enough to keep me away.
Focused, knowledgeable, true commitment providing easy to follow effective fat burning techniques. I see the care the BodyNetix team takes to insure safe, efficient proper form. The combination of cardio drills and strength training pushes my strength and endurance to a level that maximises my calorie burn! The best part about the program, you can be at any fitness level to join! The moves are easily adapted to fit your personal needs. Beginner or elite, you will see amazing results.. Commit to it and it will work for you!! This is my second time joining BodyNetix FitCamp. My body responds quickly to the interval training and "supersets". I am able to achieve my goal of having a high energy, strong, sculpted body quicker. It truly is a Great feeling!!..I feel fantastic and excited to see what's coming next! A strong outside, makes for a strong inside.
Chris, Carl and Michelle are fantastic trainers. Very attentive at making sure we are doing the exercises correctly and boarding on cruelty in their zeal for encouraging us to go that extra bit to get the most out of our workout. The program is amazing. It kicks my ass but I am so pleased with the strength I am already feeling in my body in just a few weeks! I have improved in just 3 weeks. I am stronger, doing the cardio for longer and being able to push myself and complete the sets which I was unable to do in the first week. It is a fantastic start to my day and after having 2 babies in less than 2 years I am so pleased to start to see some abs again! Plank is a word I use to fear but now I am embracing it :)
Call this a testimonial if you like.....but I just want to say that I've NEVER enjoyed working out so much as I have in your classes! In just a few short weeks, I've noticed changes in my body that make me feel strong and able to handle life's challenges. I've never focused so much on my breathing, and never in a million years did I think I could get my butt out of bed for a 6am class. I really appreciate the accountability emails, which make me feel like I'm part of a team, and that I'm supported on my fitness journey. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
In a few words...Chris & Carl Rock!!!! I have always been involved in athletics and fitness, but after having my son my body has not been the same and I am sure anyone that is a mom knows what I mean!!! I had heard from a friend that the BodyNetix FitCamps were amazing and she was so right!!!! After only 5 weeks of Girl Power FitCamp, I cannot believe the differences!!! My muscle memory is coming back faster than I anticipated! I feel stronger physically and mentally! I can feel my body toning and tightening after every session and cannot wait until the next one! I love that I can come to their studio and focus on my workout without distraction! Chris and Carl, THANK YOU...for turning my workouts into something amazing where it is full of variety, fun, encouragement, motivation and most of all...challenge!!! This is the perfect addition to my already healthy lifestyle!!! Can hardly wait to see where I will be in a few more months!!!! Thank you so much!!!"
I joined a BodyNetix FitCamp because I wanted to get in shape but I had no idea how much fun it would be or how it would change other aspects of my life. Not only am I in better shape but I have more energy, I am in a better mood and I get more accomplished in my day. Chris and Carl are great to work with, they push me when I need to be pushed but they make exercise fun and it is never the same class twice! I love FitCamp and I have recommended it to all of my friends!
I thought the mini FitCamp in January was fantastic and I'm also enjoying the current one (I realize it might not look like I'm enjoying it as I huff and puff but I really am). In fact, I've lost 20 pounds since Christmas and feel really good! I don't know why more guys like me don't sign up for classes? I've seen a lot of guys in the Comox Rec. Centre gym over the years who use the machines and weights, but they never seem to get into shape. They should sign up for a Fitcamp! (Ed has now lost over 35 pounds!) Way to go Ed!
It's true! Healthy staff increase moral, business productivity and most importantly, patient and customer care. These are some of the reasons I have chosen to work with BodyNetix, to provide my staff with an effective, enjoyable fitness program. With the exception of the occasional jovial complaint of sore muscles after a good workout, my staff are reaping the rewards of healthy living. Thanks to the BodyNetix team for working with VisionWorks Optometry and keeping us exercised and in great shape!
I thought I would let you know that my physiotherapist was very pleased with my muscle tone - said I had beautiful quads (not joking) - Stop laughing! and was very impressed with the strength I have in my back now. He said that it shows how good the training is from you and that it's a very good program. That you Chris for working hard to work around my knee issues while continuing to strengthen everything. So a BIG THANK YOU to you and to Carl too!!!!!
Chris and Carl put in very long days, but you would never know. We are in their last classes of the day and they still greet us with enthusiasm and a lets get going attitude. Never a dull moment. With the new equipment and the cardio program that Chris has put together for the small group training - we get it all. The equipment is unique and allows for beginner and long-termer to do the same routine but at their own pace (unless Chris thinks you're slacking - then he is on you) Chris and Carl are also very flexible, so if you have an injury or just cannot do a particular exercise they will adapt to something different. Sometimes at the end of the sessions you wonder who is going to drive you home because you can't imagine actually getting into your vehicle let alone turning it on. When that happens you know that Chris and Carl have done their jobs. It's a good feeling actually. I think the whole concept is great. I have been with Chris for almost a year now - 8 months in a semi-private at his studio and since the beginning of February in his small group training. I have never felt better and now that my inner self is stronger and I have more energy I will be concentrating on shedding that extra packaging. Just a note that although my weight has not changed I have dropped 2+ sizes and I don't know how many inches. Chris and I are working on stage 2 and I appreciate the confidence that he has in me to succeed.
Chris is great! He has a very positive attitude that makes you want to keep working harder to meet your goal. I also like the fact that he demonstrates all sets and will customize them to fit everyone's needs. I look forward to my twice weekly workouts. I like the change up of weights and cardio in every session and the energy level that Chris has to keep you on track ( even when you know you are sucking that day ).
I joined BodyNetix in Feb of 08. I had worked with a personal trainer for about 3 years prior, but sadly he passed away. I was given all his home gym equipment but was finding it very difficult to stay motivated on my own. So slowly i did less and less until for about 6 months I did nothing at all. Then one day i heard Chris on the radio and decided to give him a call. Originally all I wanted was for someone to set up a program for me to do at home and get me motivated again. Chris actually took the time and recommended someone to me that does in home training. I thought about it some more and I listened to Chris on the radio and corresponded with him by phone and email and finally decided to go to the grand opening of BodyNetix 2. I joined on the spot in the Small Group Program. I was only going to go for 3 months to get back on track, but I'm hooked now. I love working out with the other ladies in the group. We always manage to have a few good laughs as well as an awesome workout. Chris and Carl have been very professional and motivational all the way. They answer all my questions and are very informative. I feel very comfortable being there. So if you're thinking of getting in shape, I highly recommend you give BodyNetix a try! You won't be disappointed!
I wish Chris and Carl all the sucess they deserve. YOU GUY'S Rock!!!!!!!
Chris' attitude and energy level is fantastic during our sessions. He is fully focussed on maximizing our time so that I receive a quality work-out while taking my skill level into consideration. He is professional and extremely knowledgeable in his field, able to answer any questions I have no mater how technical. Chris loves what he does and it shows in the quality of his work. My total lack of athletic experience made me hesitant when it came to entertaining thoughts of going to a gym. It was the private one-on-one training that BodyNetix offers that made me take that first step to living a more healthful lifestyle. Now, one year later, I am stronger and more confident.
Chris has been exactly what one would expect in a good trainer - positive, knowledgeable, motivating and has a sincere interest in the clients fitness goals. Chris pushes you to your outer limits increasing your strength as well as your confidence. I look forward to each and every session! I feel stronger and I can definitely see some muscle definition that wasn't there before - I actually have biceps and triceps!!! The resistance training program is a perfect compliment to my running which will help me achieve less body fat, prevent injuries, and run faster! Thanks Chris for your dedication and knowledge - I look forward to seeing continued results and to running a personal best time in my next marathon!
I originally started going to BodyNetix to look good for my wedding, and now it's nine months later, & I still work out 3x's a week with Chris. We do work very hard, & get very sweaty, but we also have alot of fun and alot of laughs. I think that you have to have the ability to feel comfortable enough with your trainer to laugh at yourself when you are completely red in the face, and pushing yourself to just lift those weights above your head one more time. Not only have I lost a lot of weight and have way more energy but I have also really learned a lot in this time about healthy eating in general. Chris, Carl & Nathan are experts in their field, and if you have the privilege of working with them, the sky's the limit in terms of what you can achieve.
I am taking strengthening training with Chris at Bodynetix and have been for over six months. A girlfriend convinced me to join her following her great success with his program. She had been motivated to go by hearing Chris on the radio; he was incredibly enthusiastic about helping people get healthy and even across the radio was clearly passionate about his job. My experience with Chris has been just that, he is enthusiastic, passionate, and knowledgeable about the human body, movement, strength and health. His attitude and energy are projected on to you as you work through the ever-changing work-out routines, which I have found to be key in sticking to a program. Having entered the program with a neck and back injury, I was looking for a way to gain some strength back and possibly energy to be able to enjoy other activities again. Although I will always struggle with the injuries, I have found that through the strength I have gained I have also gained back many areas of my life that I missed greatly. I enjoy walking and gardening again. My clothes fit me better. Many of my daily stressors are funnelled into the work out, with a much more positive outcome. The changes have been remarkable!
I started with Chris in November 2006 as part of a "couple's bootcamp" with 2 other couples as an attempt to get fitter before a friend's wedding. When we started out I thought I was going to die. I didn't really take it too seriously until March 2007. In the last year I have lost over 40 lbs and feel better and look better than I have in years. I have a healthier mentality about working out and eating right. Chris has been there for me every step of the way. When I have questions he answers them honestly, when I need encouragement he is there to give it. I have definitely had my weight loss ups and downs over the past year, and he is always supportive and never negative. He pushes me out of my comfort zone just enough that I get better at what I'm doing, but not so much that I get discouraged. I can do things now that I wouldn't have ever been able to do if I hadn't been working with BodyNetix. Thanks Chris.
Since the first email to BodyNetix and the return phone call from Chris, my life has changed. I knew that I had made the right decision. Upon meeting Chris he quickly put me at ease and gave me tons of encouragement. I started training with Carl 3 times a week, starting as a 14 year smoker (half my life), overweight person who had never stepped foot in a gym or done any exercise at all. Carl was able to assess my needs and weaknesses and was able to direct me in ways to reach my goals. The workouts were tough but do-able, the routines varied and I was never bored.The benefits of training with BodyNetix include the clean, comfortable work out space, the dedication of Chris and Carl as a team to ensuring the health, fitness and satisfaction of their clients. They offered convenient scheduling and when you are there for your hour, the time is dedicated to YOU! After 3 months of training with Carl I have lost almost 20 lbs and over 16 inches of total body fat! I am down almost three sizes in clothes! I have never felt better about myself. I am excited to move on with my life with my new body and ability to tackle new challenges in the fitness world. Thank you BodyNetix!
I've been working out with BodyNetix for just over a year and have finally lost 'that last 10lbs!' Moreover I've lost 4 sizes, totally firmed up and feel great about myself (finally.) I could never stay committed to a gym membership. BodyNetix has a variety of options that keep me motivated - it's the only program I've ever stuck with and will continue with. Thanks guys!
Since starting my regular workouts with Chris and his incredible team at BodyNetix my fitness goals have been met on every level. Trust me when I say that I do understand how fitness plays an incredibly important part in your life. I once weighed 600 pounds and realized that if I didn't do something to change my life that I would die a young man because of poor eating habits and an incredibly inactive lifestyle. Part of my success is because Chris and BodyNetix helped me discover my long term fitness needs and goal. BodyNetix has helped me manage a healthy weight, build muscle mass and have pushed me to work harder than I thought I was capable of. I'm now in the best shape of my life and they've motivated me even further with their tireless dedication to the personal needs of their clients. Now, not only do I workout regularly but I actually REALLY look forward to each and every work out. If I don't get my workouts in with Chris I feel like something is missing in my week. Fitness is now MY lifestyle! Thanks Chris and BodyNetix for helping me realize my lifelong dream of being healthy!
I lacked energy and endurance and wanted to improve my overall health. I heard about the trainers at BodyNetix and thought I would sign up. I have been going to Carl at BodyNetix since May 2007 and have had great results. I used to have shoulder pain and now it is gone. My breathing is more controlled and I have more energy during my workouts and throughout the day. Working out and having the great support and encouragement from Carl has helped me to become more conscious of making changes in my lifestyle. I have found Carl to be a good listener when discussing my health and my personal fitness goals. He shares his knowledge and experience through open discussions which makes everyone feel that they are not alone in their journey to become healthier and stronger. I want to thank you Carl for all of your support. "Maybe you will turn me into a 'Marathon Runner' yet"!
I started doing strength training with Chris in February 2007 after hearing his ads on the radio. At the age of 42, I had experienced many injuries to my neck, back, shoulders and feet and was just recovering from my third surgery to my wrist. I needed to pass a fitness test for work, but because of my injuries, I was not successful in working out on my own. I went to see Chris for a consultation and he immediately gave me the confidence that I needed to begin to strengthen my body without further injuries. He quickly and easily modified the exercises that I was unable to do due to old injuries or lack of strength. Chris has made working out a fun experience due to his great sense of humour. I have been so successful in my training that I have now been training with Chris for over a year and will continue to do so until I move from the Valley this summer. I passed my fitness test last fall but I enjoy our workouts so much that I decided to continue them twice a week. I have not had any new injuries and I can now easily cope with the old ones. My flexibility and range of motion have improved greatly and I have the strength and stamina to keep up to my energetic 4 year old. I can now be confident with myself and I LOVE the way my new body looks and feels! Chris, I hope you keep my time open for me when I return to the Comox Valley. I would, and do highly recommend Chris to anyone who wants to have a happier and healthier life!
