That is the most important factor to me in a trainer-- they need to be able to motivate me, and if they can make jokes while doing it, that is a plus! I train with Chris at an ungodly hour in the morning-- and I am not a morning person, yet I am still motivated to get up and into the gym with him for our sessions. I like the gym he trains at because everyone in there is serious about working out, and sometimes we work outside which is great, too. Chris' routines are always changing, so I'm never bored, and I feel like I am getting a great work out.

Pros: outside workout

.

Working out with Chris gives me so much energy and makes me feel wonderful, its better than a massage even! Whoever below said Chris is how a personal trainer should be is exactly right. He knows how to motivate and push people and when to introduce something new. The gym has never been crowded during my visits and I've gone at all times of the day. I've always been able to get right on the equipment that I want to use. He switches things up between inside and outdoors constantly. Its great to be able to step outside in the fresh air and do some butt kickin' lunges, squats or ab work on a mat. Chris doesn't just count reps and sit there. He is always cracking jokes, working to correct my positioning, and most of all -- smiling! Every workout is different too. I also like the fact that the rates are very affordable and I never felt like I was being "sold" something. Chris is great at listening to what your goals are and helping you get there. He knows what to have you do for optimum results. I've worked with other trainers before and never had a trainer who was so positive and energetic. I've done way better at losing my "love handles" and toning up than before thanks to Chris!

Pros: great attitude/personality, knowledgeable

Cons: none

I tried out his free sessions and I thought they were alright. But once I signed a contract, the training quality went down. We worked out in the parking lot because the gym was so crowded all the time. Be careful when you select a trainer.

"A Positively Fit" Personal Training is much more than a physical workout. Chris also challenges you mentally. His program focuses on the person as a whole. The workouts he creates for you are always very challenging, but he is always there to support you through-out the process. Chris is always changing things up, so there is no chance of you getting board! His positive attitude is very contagious, which makes you want to attend your sessions.

The environment is very energized with people cheering you on. Everyone attending is there for the same reason, and you don't want to let them down along with yourself. Of all the gyms I have attended in the past, this is the first I have attended that doesn't make me feel intimidated. Everyone there is highly supportive, which encourages you to work even harder.

If you are looking for a trainer/gym that is a "Meat Market" this is NOT the place. If you are out for a "Positively Fit" environment to make yourself a better person, than Chris at Positively Fit is the place for you!

As Buddha once said, ?All that we are is the result of what we have thought.? Chris encourages you to think positively about your workouts, even if you don?t accomplish the tasks the first time through. He promises you that it will get better and he is right!

I can?t recommend him enough. Chris has changed my life, and will continue to do so!

Pros: Very professional, no BS gym.

Cons: The music they play isn't always that great.

I have been training with Chris for over a year. I feel and look great. His workouts are intense but personalized for what you can handle. I have muscle tone and more energy since starting the program. If you ever want to miss a workout, you better have a great excuse, Chris doesn't except lame excuses. Thanks for the workouts and friendship, it is appreciated.

Why even hire a personal trainer? Why choose Chris as your personal trainer? These are two very good questions. The answers are simple and make perfect sense. How many people join a gym and then never go or find reasons not to go? When you have a trainer it keeps you motivated and provides for an atmosphere that makes it easy to stay committed to your workouts. It becomes a habit with so many incredible benefits that just aren't possible on your own. Having a trainer is like having a personal coach, motivator, health advisor, positive influence all in one.?

Why train with Chris? Yes, there are thousands of trainers out there and your choices are many. Chris is someone who takes his profession very seriously without being too serious if you know what I mean. The workouts are always enjoyable. He takes the time to understand your individual training needs and overall fitness goals. He is friendly and sincere with his approach and adapts your work outs accordingly. I think the biggest testament is that I have been training with Chris for almost 3 years and he has always been upbeat, non intimidating and attentive to all of his clients. He makes sure the personal touch is part of his daily routine.?

Over the last year, Chris has become a friend, mentor, dietician, and Jedi Master to me. Working out with him has been something I looked forward to doing, knowing that the hour would be physically tough but always lots of fun, and often spiritually uplifting. Chris has a personality and attitude that make him easy to work with, even when I was having a rough day or just wasnt into the workout. He is an expert at motivating and inspiring me to succeed in my goals, in the gym as well as in my life. I truly believe that he is the type of person that sincerely wants people to achieve happiness and fulfillment, and goes out of his way to make sure he is giving them everything they need towards that end.

I am now 40 years old, but people tell me I look 35. I feel great. I look 100% better than I did last year. I can see the difference in the mirror and everyone that knows me makes very flattering comments. I never ate poorly, but Im eating so much healthier now than ever before. Im stronger, more flexible, and have greater endurance than I think I ever had in my entire life. My experience with Chris McCombs has been life changing in ways I didnt think possible, and Im very grateful that I ended up working with him.

Pros: Chris is someone you want in your life...better than Tony Robbins!

Cons: He's so damned tall I get neck pains talking to him :)

Chris, if your attitude determines your altitude you are definitely flying at flight level 41!

Thank you for keeping me and making me WANT to be accountable for my training. I come away each day knowing that I am going to live longer and remain healthier because I spent an hour with you doing the right things for the right reasons in the right way with the right people and the right attitude. What a difference!

You do important work and you do it well. You should be very proud of the difference you are making in people's lives each day. Thank you for doing it with me.

All my best,

Pros: Ease of access, importance of time, complete workout

Cons: Pain is a sign of weakness leaving the body and there is a lot of it :)

I have been training with Chris for the past three months. I have spent many years at larger gyms working my butt off and getting little results. It wasnt until I met Chris that I made noticeable results in my body. I have lost body fat, toned up areas that seemed impossible in the past to tone, and I have more upper body strength than I have ever had in my life. Chris is a great motivator and very knowledgeable about what works when it comes to getting in shape. In the past, there were many days when I dreaded going to the gym and jumping on the treadmill. But with Chris, I look forward to a good workout. His workouts are a great combination of motivation, friendship, laughter and at the same time a challenge while using in a variety of different exercises. His full body workouts are never boring or repetitive. He puts a sincere interest into all his clients lives but at the same time he makes sure you are giving your workout 100%. After each workout I leave feeling so great. Cant wait to see what results I will get in the next three months! Thank you Chris for sharing your love for fitness and continuing to inspire me!- Candice

Been training with Chris for about 8 months now and have gotten HUGE results. I'm way stoked about how I look and feel now. He's an amazing person to be around and I'm so happy I've had the opportunity to train with him. I've always wanted a trainer who would help me transform myself into that "idea" physique I worked out hard for over the years and now I finally found him.

Since I started at Positively Fit (with Personal trainers Chris, and Josh), I've toned up and lost weight. I only go once a week, but still getting results! They are very energetic, motivational, and the workouts make you feel the BURN. They're all really awesome over there, pushing you to the limit. You'll be doing things you never thought you could do, and that's the best reward. You surprise yourself!

Chris is nice, friendly and a very genuine person. He gives positive feedback and encouragement. At the same time, he pushes his clients and doesn't tolerate slacking off. This has made such a difference: I can't afford the luxury of having a personal trainer every time I work out, but Chris has taught me to push myself so I can maximize my workout every time I go to the gym. I have been in Chris' program for 5 weeks and my endurance and strength have increased dramatically!

I have been working out with Chris for about 6 months and couldn't be happier. He is an inspirational, hard working, focused trainer that challenges you every minute of the workout. I can see my efforts turning into results and I would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking to get into shape quickly. Thanks Chris.

Through infectious enthusiasm and undying encouragement, Chris has retrained my body while I have begun to retrain my mind. He knows exactly how hard to push me so that I can feel proud of myself and not want to give up. He keeps the exercises interesting by constantly switching it up so that I dont get bored. He has reminded me that striving to have a fit body can be fun and that the concepts of training are not just used to mold a healthier-looking physique but also can be applied to create a more positive attitude which has lead to a fuller life."
