This is an excellent company. They have all the necessary exercise equipment that you want. I went to this store and was completely amazed at the selection.

This place is a one-stop shop for all personal training needs. Brian worked with me as I graduated from UNC and got ready for the NFL. I still come back and work with him before I need to report to summer camp. My wife has been working with his other staff members, primarily Krishinda, and has loved every second of it! They offer a balance that can meet any expectation and get you hitting your goals in stride - Brian and Krishinda are the best around!

I started training about 9 months ago with a friend down the road from ActivEdge at Move It Be Fit and this was a huge mistake... In the last 9 months we have been through numerous trainers that the owner has fired and hired without warning over that time. The owner is a chauvinist pig and I wouldn't let us out of our contracts until they expired. ActivEdge is such a welcome relief to that place that I hope to catch others shopping around and tell them THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO!!! Brian is absolutely amazing! A refreshing personality that has a wonderful staff for us to work with... they make exercise fun and exciting, not demeaning and belittling. ActivEdge is a top notch facility at the highest level. A+++

This is the only program that has ever given me visible results in just a few weeks. The staff is friendly, smart and provides personal attention to assure maximum benefit from your training time. They have a large selection of free weights and machines to use, but the real benefit here is having a trainer set up a custom program for you every time you go. Every session is different so boredom is never a deterrent to training. As your body gets stronger, the trainers raise the bar so that you continually make progress. I spend one hour a week and really feel like I've made a great investment in my health. It's the biggest bang for my fitness buck!

I'm currently seeing Brian for back pain and I have no doubt that he will help me to get back on track again.

I experienced bi lateral tendinitis in my elbows in the past. UNC and Duke doctors only wanted to do surgery. After finding Brian and going thru conservative treatments with him, my tendinitis completely healed.
If you have an issue that needs attention , definitely see Brian Diaz at Active Edge.

If fit is what you want to be look no further! I have been trying for years to get excited about exercise and I never could do it..until now. Brian and Meredith are a dynamic duo that can't be topped! Energy, wit, and class make my workouts so awesome I can't even describe it in words! Go now and you won't be disappointed I promise! A few more weeks and I just may look like I'm supposed to be a cardiac physician haha!

I have always wanted a personal trainer for my wife and I for several years. Unfortunately, the older we got, the less I made it a priority. And, so here we are, in the middle of a financial downturn, and I decided that we should find a persona trainer!! Best decision I have made in a long time!! Brian, and his staff, are wonderful leaders of fitness! After comparing a membership at a local gym for about $50/month and paying him roughly $200 a month I believe I'm getting the best deal in town!! Not only do I get a personal trainer 2x a week for 60 min sessions, I can also come in anytime I want to outside of those times for that price!! As a doctor at Duke, the gym is nicely located on my way home to Chapel Hill and the hours are great for us!! We made some cuts in other areas (like golf memberships that I never use and expensive dinning and clothes) and put it in our health! I can't say enough about how great ActivEdge is for both of our lives!!! I highly recommend!

I have never met a better combo with Brian and Meredith! They compliment each other so well with their different personalities and exercise selection... I have never wanted to exercise more then now! I look forward to every visit at ActivEdge and can't wait to continue for many more to come! The place is addictive and energized! I tried some others first and they couldn't hold a candle to this place! Outstanding quality and expertise! BEST IN THE AREA!!!!

I've been in the area for 2 years after living in New York for several. I have used a personal trainer for the last 6 years and was expecting to pay big money coming from New York for a good trainer. I tried 3 different places in Durham and found ActvEdge to be the best period! Not even close! They had nicer equipment then ANY gym in this area AND New York!! I worked with Meredith and Brian and they knew so much more and kept me more excited about exercise then any trainer I have ever worked with!! And to top it off, they were also the cheapest!! This place is a gem and a terrific deal! What a classy joint!\r

Thanks Brian and Meredith for all you do for me!

I was looking to lose a few pounds over a month or so and was looking for a personal trainer at the start of the summer. I searched the Internet and tried a few different places in Durham and Chapel Hill. After a trial or two at different facilities, I chose to go to Brian and Meredith over at ActivEdge. They were simply the best out there period! I have past injuries that I needed to talk to Brian about and being a physical therapist I felt confident in my exercise routine! When I tried to talk about the injuries with the ""other"" places they tried to say that I really didn't need a physical therapist and that they could help me. But trust me, some of them actually hurt me! Brian and Meredith are a dynamic duo that offer a unique blend of toughness and determination as well as concern and insightful exercise combinations. And to top it off, they are cheaper then all the others!! I was wasting $75/hr and not even working with a physical therapist and now I spend $29/hr and get Brian and Meredith!!! What a deal!!! I would not hesitate to recommend then to anyone seeking a personal trainer!

I am one of the editors for the Herald-Sun and Brian has been writing for us for over 3 years. I wanted to start training for a triathlon and thought I'd start here since he seems to know what he is talking about! But, I was completely surprised and impressed with just how good he and Meredith are!!! Absolutely unbelievable!!! I have tried a lot of personal training studios all over the Triangle and none comes even remotely close to what Brian has done at ActivEdge. His blend on training techniques and focused delivery are the best I have ever seen! He was available for questions about overuse injuries and I was even able to submit insurance for sessions when he worked on my IT band!! All the tools are here for top performance, no doubt!!!

After reading some of these reviews, I would like to add another quality of Brian and Meredith: Moral character. I have lived in Durham and the Hope Valley area for much of my life and am sad to say that many of the other trainers in the area don't quite portray the best morals in their own lives (even if they give some impression that they do). But Brian and Meredith are absolutely fantastic! True role models to my son and daughter, who also go to ActivEdge, as well as myself. I have been through many different trainers and exercise routines, but what I believe should be added to ActivEdge's list of attributes before all others, is it's enriching and moral atmosphere - a must for any concerned parent!

As part of my New Years promise, I tried a variety of different fitness ""ideas"" before finding AND STAYING with ActivEdge. I started with just running on my own - didn't last. Then I added a Pilates class, this helped but wasn't quite what I wanted. My latest debacle was trying a kettlebell class that with my friends, what a disaster. Not only did we do the same thing every day, but I had to commit to several sessions up front and could not get a refund! Anyway, after leaving that ego-laden trainer behind, I found one of the best kept secrets in the Triangle area! (Although I quickly learned that it wasn't so much of a secret after seeing others there - including my own colleagues!). And here I was thinking that I didn't want to see anyone that I worked with, while they are now having as good a time as I am! This group, Brian, Meredith, and Ted, makes exercising fun! Not only that, but I was able to address some orthopedic concerns with Brian and being a physical therapist, he evaluated me and adjusted some of the exercises to maximize my gains. I have only been here 2 weeks since the kettlebell class and what a change! Change in body (4 lbs down) and change in spirit! I love this place and strongly recommend it to anyone looking to kick start a new outlook on life!

I have tried a trainer at the local gym...not motivating enough. Then I tried Curves...too boring and repetitive. Recently I tried a kettlebell class with a friend and injured my low back and couldn't even see patients for 2 days. Then after talking with some of the other Duke physicians, I called Brian. What an exhilarating change! He wasn't overly egotistic like the kettlebell guy, he was a much better inspiration then the other trainer at the local gym, and mixed up the exercises to keep it exciting! Look no farther - this guy is the best! What really impressed me was how thorough the evaluation was, he looked at all my medical history, diet, and exercise background. After watching me go through several movements, he came up with a plan. Granted, he still adds the occasional kettlebell exercise, ugh, but he goes over the movement and will adjust if necessary. He also adds other forms of resistance to give a much more well rounded workout then anything I have ever experienced! We focus mostly of multi-joint complex movements, engaging the core, and adding cardio throughout the workout. His hands-on blend of all different types of exercises, diet tips, and grasp of human anatomy has helped me lose 3lbs in one week! While I know this may not continue at that rate, he has made a believer out of me! I have more energy now then I ever have and love to work out! This place is truly a blessing in my life!

I have been working as a sport medicine specialty physician at 3 different universities in my career. I have never seen anybody better at fusing together rehab and personal training than Brian does at ActivEdge. His skills and personality match and better anyone in the similar field. Everything he does is physiologically sound and I trust him with all my patients for rehab or post rehab concerns. He knows the body and movements that bring out the best results. I highly recommend Brian and his staff without reservations.

I moved here with my husband 3 months ago when he took a job at UNC. I was looking for a personal trainer in the area and some of his colleagues recommended Brian at ActivEdge. Brian is absolutely the best trainer in the area and made me feel like family immediately. I love going over to his warm facility where the staff is always encouraging and helping me reach my goals. With their guidance, I have learned how to take better care of myself and have already lost 5 pounds since starting just before Christmas! If you are looking for a great trainer, motivator, and friend, look no farther - this is the place!\r

I was working out at ""another facility"" off of Shannon Rd. in Durham and decided to give theses guys a try after I did an internet search for other trainers in the area and found these guys. What a team! Brian and Meredith are hands-down better than the other place that I was at! What energy and knowledge and best of all Brian is a physical therapist and was able to get coverage through my insurance for some of the sessions due to a previous injury! Even though it is difficult to change trainers once you become adjusted to someone's style and approach, I am trying to get all my friends from the other place to join me at ActivEdge! This place is top notch!

I came from Atlanta where I trained at a place called Velocity Sports Performance. After 1 day here at ActivEdge, I immediately knew this place was better!!! They transformed my workouts adding several ""new"" and exciting exercises that really made my game pop! In 6 weeks I am running faster, cutting faster, jumping higher and ready for DI basketball. They taught me about body awareness and movement in certain exercises and how that translates into improvements on the court. This place pays attention to all the details and I highly recommend their services to anyone considering taking their game to the next level!

Brian has helped several of our lacrosse players here at Duke over the past year. The players that have worked with him display tremendous agility and movement with and without the ball. They are strong and solid, yet quick and agile and are usually the better athletes on the team. What he has done with those players has really helped our team and I can't wait to send more players his way in the coming years. Any top-level lacrosse player in the triangle area needs to see Brian and get on a program! Thanks for all the help in getting Duke back on track for a National Championship!

Pros: Sports Performance At It's Best!

I have been training with Brian for the past 3 years getting ready for soccer and trying to prevent injuries. His combination of drills and exercises are the best I have seen and done in my 15 years of sports. He offers great explanations of why we are doing them and unlike most trainers can actually give a demo of the drill. Furthermore, any athlete that is looking to combine their gym work with on-field training, this is the place. I have done several private skills sessions in which Brian has led me through some complex movement drills to help my footwork and touch on the ball. He is awesome and I can't wait to get back and train with him again!

I was originally referred to Brian by a friend of mine who wanted me to see him for my recently repaired rotator cuff. Brian gave me exercises and worked on it with his hands for several weeks. After he restored full range of motion and got me back into golf shape, I have continued to come to him for personal training. I meet with him twice a week and love every minute of it! He gets me doing exercises that help with me my golf game as well and lose some weight... Now my friend better watch out before I kick his butt! What a great place and great staff! A must for any aging baby boomer looking to get an edge!\r

Brian was very kind and offered me many different options to get started with a fitness plan - we started out basic with one-on-one meeting once a week. Now we meet 3x a week and I feel great! I highly recommend ActivEdge to any starting a ""new"" plan! Very patient and encouraging - but still exciting! A MUST!!!

I started with ActivEdge in January after a colleague of mine recommended Brian and his staff. He immediately got me started with fun exercises that left me wanting more. After a few weeks, they analyzed my diet and made me realize that killing me in the gym was only part of the equation - the other part is what I eat! Common sense, really, but now the pounds are falling off 2-3 per week!!! Brian has really worked miracles and made me a believer!! I'm healthy AND fit - rare for a doctor, but definitely necessary!! I strongly recommend ActivEdge and hope all realize the potent combination of focused exercise and diet!

We have been using Brian for the past 4 years for various sports at Riverside High School. We usually have the head coach or senior captain schedule the team for 2-3x week for sports like soccer, lacrosse, basketball, volleyball, and football. Brian has different stations set up for them based on the sport and objective for the training session. We are competitive almost every year because our athletes are ready for action when they start! Brian is an excellent resource for other club and school teams looking to get the most out of their athletes!

I was one of the ""New Year's Resolution"" crowd and I am so glad that I decided to go with them! For years I have tried to exercise on my own, wasting money on 2 and 3 year contracts to the big gyms.... Not anymore!! ActivEdge is the best deal I have ever come by! My pants fit better, my husband looks at me more, and I feel the best I ever have!!!! Brian and Meredith have really changed my life!! I make time to exercise and they help me balance my diet and keep things in perspective... ActivEdge is more than a gym... something totally awesome!!

Pros: Staff, location, knowledge

.

I have tried 2 other trainers in Durham at different studios and none matched the intensity and knowledge combination that Brian has shown me. He actually listens to what my previous injuries were and then implements a challenging program to help. Once a collegiate long distance runner, forced to take off several years, and now ready to kick Brian's butt in an April 5K!!! Running stronger then I ever have since college because of ActivEdge!! A must for all ages (including a washed up 50+ year old just looking to see my kids through high school!!).

An expert in all fields of orthopedic and sports related injuries. Brian has done a great job with all the patients that we have sent him over the past 2 years... I hope we continue our relationship into the future!

Pros: Rehab and Post Rehab workouts - Return to sport programs

.

I have spent several years of my life trying to figure out the ""best"" formula for success in my body - I have gone through trainers, fad diets, and gym memberships with the same results... until now! I was referred to ActivEdge and told to ask for Brian who immediately got me going on fresh exercises and challenging drills. Combined with their expertise in nutrition (which is half the battle they keep telling me), I have changed my diet and have never felt better!! Both Brian and Meredith are the best motivating team in the Triangle!! The website says they want to enrich lives and they definitely did, mine!!!! Don't look any where else!

Pros: Music, Atmosphere, Expertise

I moved into the area several weeks ago and tried 3 different trainers in the Durham area. The first two were average motivators, not that bright, and their facilities (although they claimed ""state-of-the-art"") were no better than a middle school gym! Then I tried ActivEdge and met Brian and Meredith... No need to look anywhere else! Simply the best team I have EVER trained with! Brian's knowledge and Meredith's motivation have kept me coming and made a believer out of me! I have already dropped 10% body fat, which they explained is a much better measurement than the BMI, in 2 months! My goal of under 8% is near and hopefully I'll reach it by Christmas! Brian and Meredith are the BEST - Period!!!!! Don't bother looking anywhere else!\r

Thanks guys!

Pros: Knowledge, Motivation

I have been through several different physical therapists and none have helped me as much as Brian. His patience, hands-on attention, and explanation of the injured area were superb. After 3 visits and exercises to continue with, my problem is gone! I am planning on continuing with him with personal training... what a blend a trainer who has a master in physical therapy! Look no where else! ActivEdge is the place to be!\r

Pros: PT and trainer in one!

.

We have been using Brian's services for the past 6 months with tremendous results! His commitment to our athletes is unparalleled! Being a big ACC school we have some of the best training staff in the nation - but we still send our athletes to Brian because of his soccer experience and return-to-sport knowledge. His combination of rehab and athletic enhancement is just what we need! Hopefully, we can become one of the elite DI soccer programs in the nation, but we can't do it without the help of people like Brian at ActivEdge! He is a must for any developing soccer player!

I have tried 3 different trainers in the Durham area and Brian is the best! The programs and pricing that they have are more economical than the others, even though he has more expertise than the rest! Brian is a licensed physical therapist, and this was important to me because of past injuries. I feel assured that Brian will help me recover and meet my goals! He is the BEST DEAL IN THE TRIANGLE - NO DOUBT!!!!! I highly recommend!!\r

Brian and Meredith creat an awesome training atmosphere. My wife first started there last year with Brian and she has been persistent about me starting ever since. I reluctantly gave it a try in August and haven't looked back since! The exercises are challenging without being too ridiculous and their guidance is just perfect (motivating but not distracting). I STRONGLY recommend this place to all looking to get more out of their workouts! AWESOME!

ActivEdge has been helping with our conditioning and fitness programs for all sports at Panther Creek High School. Brian and Meredith are willing to run entire teams at their gym or here at the school. Our inagural season for basketball is coming up and our athletes should be in peak condition due to the efforts and programing of ActivEdge. We will continue to explore other ways to give our athletes the best training around through ActivEdge and look forward to a bright athletic future with their help!

Pros: Top notch group training, sport-specific, central location

Brian has been working on my shoulder for about 2 weeks with great results. We have been doing ultrasound and soft tissue work for the past 4 visits and the muscular problem seems to have disappeared. I tried UNC and Triangle before coming to him and none of their therapists have helped as much as Brian has. I loved the place so much that I plan on continuing with some golf fitness! Thanks Brian!

Pros: Top rate service and excellent atmosphere

I have been sending patients to Brian for the past 2 years with excellent results! At first, patients were coming to me, saying that they had a therapist in mind that they wanted to work with - Now, I refer them to him immediately. He has done tremendous work with our athletes, especially our reconstructive ACL patients. I highly recommend Brian Diaz and his staff for any type of sports or orthopedic rehab without reservations!!! A strong addition to the Triangle medical community!

One of the best I have trained with over the years. My coached hooked with up with Brian when I was having trouble with my rotator cuff on release. After Brian helped me rehab the shoulder, he also helped me get ready for the season with speed, agility, and quickness drills. I'm going into this season in the best shape of my life!!!

Pros: Location - easy to get to even from Raleigh!

.

I have been working with Brian for over 2 years now. I went to a boarding school in Boston, but everytime that I was home, I trained with him. He has helped me get stronger, quicker, and more explosive - all things necessary in lacrosse. Most importantly, he has helped me through a lot of injuries that come with playing high level sports. I am now a member of the Duke lacrosse team and looking to help restore their image and rise in the ranks. Brian is by far the best trainer in the area and any individual looking for athletic enhancement should start and end here!

Pros: Knowledge, Gym equipment

I first came to Brian to get ready for UNC's pro day. He had me doing much better drills and exercises than UNC's program and I was able to make quick progress. I quickly regained the strength and speed that I had when I was at Florida. Some scouts were impressed with my athletic ability that Brian helped restore, but unfortunately the lack of game experience cost me. Brian was such a great help and I loved the things that he was doing for the football players. He asked me to help develop a better program and together we came up with an even greater routine. ActivEdge is geared for the top-level competitive athlete that wants to improve their speed, agility, explosiveness, power, and strength. I wish that I found him earlier!!!

We have been using Brian's services to put on clinics as well as sending our local athletes to ActivEdge for the past 2 years and couldn't be more pleased! He has great breadth of knowledge about body movement and pattern development that has helped our agility and conditioning as well as injury prevention. One of the best trainers in the area, by far!

This place is awesome!!! Brian, if you hadn't been so easy-going and encouraging, I wouldn't even have considered training at all! Meredith, your support, kindness, encouragement and knowledge have helped me to stay consistent and make progress. Both of you lend to the safe, friendly, fun environment at the gym and I honestly looked forward to every workout. Because of what you've done for me I do breathe easier. I also feel great!! And I see new possibilities for my life all the time! I can only hope that Chicago has something as great as ActivEdge! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this to all!!

I have been working with Brian for the past 2 years and have noticed a tremendous improvement in my golf game! He has helped to develop a consistent swing by keeping me flexibile while making me more powerful and strong throughout. I have been training for years without these kind of results. Prior to seeing him, I was training with someone else that was supposedly helping my game. After only the 3rd visit with Brian, I was already leaps and bounds better than years with my other trainer! I look forward to great years ahead and a possible team title for UNC golf!

I read an article that Brian wrote for the Durham-Herald about golf performanec and called him the next day. That was the greatest decision I have made in a long time!! I am 70 years old and love to play at least 3 rounds of golf a week (when the weather is permitting). My swing has been getting shorter and shorter the older I get. Brian helped open my hips up and strengthen my core. I am now playing better then my sons and feel great! He has made me aware of faults in my posture and has helped improve my stance. Best trainer in NC!! Every state needs one of him!! I wish I could carry him around when I play all over the States!!

Brian has been helping me ever since I was a scrawny little 8th grader. He has helped me develop my soccer skills and build my speed and agility up to what it is today (which we continue to work at on a daily basis!). After playing locally for CASL Elite and Riverside HS, I chose to go to Duke and have continued to use Brian to help with my development. My ultimate goal is to win a National Championship at Duke and be a team leader my junior and senior years. Brian helps me accomplish that!

Brian has been helping our girls for the past 3 years with excellent results. As the quality of players at Duke has gotten better and better over the last few seasons, Brian has worked hard at getting them ready for the demands of ACC soccer over the summer. His program that blends strength, conditioning, injury prevention, and skills/field work is right on par if not better than our own programs at Duke. I will continue to send our players there and encourage all local talent to give him a try!

I first sought Brian's advice on my aging knee. Not only did he work with his hands on the soft tissue, but he also provided some great insight and guidance in developing a strengthening program. My knee feels much stronger and I have started to run again! He also put me on a general conditioning program for upper, lower, and core strength. Whenever I am in town, I make a point of getting in there!

When I sought Brian's services at ActivEdge, I was a senior at Jordan HS and just finished varsity tennis. I needed help getting off the baseline and quicker footwork when reacting to an opponent's shot... we were able to improve all of these and more in less than 6 months. I have since transitioned to tennis at NC State and am continuing to do alot of the same exercises here, as well. I wish more coaches at the high school and private level could see what Brian could do to help with fitness. A MUST!!

We have been using Brian's professional expertise and specialized skill set in developing our soccer athletes at UNC. He work with several of the local NC players year round as well as the players that stay here for the summer sessions. The players that use his services are much more prepared physically for the demands of Division I ACC soccer. I strongly recommend his services for those at the highest level.
