Training with Rick got me in the best shape ever. I lost about 15 lbs and gained so much strength and muscle under his instruction. His fitness plan was well thought out and tailored to fit my goals and modified as needed based on progress. His facility has excellent equipment for a great workout that suits any fitness level. Rick was great a coaching and pushing me to stick to my plan and give that extra effort that helps you see the results you want. He held me accountable and made sure I understood the choices I made with both my fitness and nutrition. Because of his coaching – I was able too obtain my goal weight and body fat percentage and see an increase in both my endurance and strength. I highly recommend his services. I posted a picture of one of my training sessions that were...more
Working out with Rick has been an amazing and inspiring experience because of his dedication to his clients. He has not only helped me to achieve my goals, but maintain them. I’ve seen many trainers in my time, Rick is as good as they come; attentive, supportive, and knowledgeable. He is always keeping me on my toes w new exercises and workouts which really helps keep it fresh. I can’t say enough good things about Rick. 5 stars!!!
The best decision we made was choosing Rick to guide us through this process to lose weight and start a more healthy lifestyle. He is fun, friendly and professional to work with. Personal training has been the best investment I made for myself, and I recommend Rick to anyone who is looking for a true fitness coach!
We started with Rick nearly 6 months ago and weren’t sure how we’d fare over the 3 months we signed on for. My wife never worked out a day in her life and while I had, definitely found out it wasn’t the most efficient way. It also didn’t accompany the nutritional aspect that we found out was hugely important. Rick helped us out with both of these. The most important thing it gave us was accountability. Paying for something gives you a great reason to show up and stick to it. I invest/manage people’s money for a living and can say with certainty this was easily one of the best investments I’ve ever made for myself and family. The feeling of seeing your body morph into a leaner, more muscular, healthier overall individual has been great for my me, my wife and overall family. It...more
First met Rick when he was at Orange Theory fitness.. He was the best instructor in the house. I was fortunate enough to score some training sessions with him and glad I did.. He is far better than his peers, he works with you on a personal level and will tailor your work out to your particular situation. Great trainer!!!!!
I have trained with Rick for 10 years and truly appreciate his consistency and variety and knowledge. He adjusts my workout to my needs -whether it be losing weight, training for a big hike or recovering from an injury and always makes for an hour well spent. Whether you are training for something specific or want a long time trainer to keep you strong and flexible and excited about exercise, Rick is your man.
I first trained with Rick about 11 years ago then tried a few other trainers closer to home and came back to Rick (I drive 30 minutes to workout with him!) because HE’S THE BEST! I truly appreciate how he teaches proper form and pushes me farther than I’d push myself in a comfortable and fun way.
Working with Rick for 2 years with great results. Provides personalized workouts and dietary advice that achieve results. I was typical 74 year old with metabolic syndrome and looking at declining quality of life. Lost weight, built muscle and now in best shape since my 20’s. Exercise really is the best medicine and looking forward to many more years of an active and healthy future.
I just wanted to give a big thank you to Rick Wells at Gilbert Personal Training for his work with me as a Personal Trainer. Rick and I have been working together for about nine months and he has been a great instructor and friend in helping me work toward my fitness and nutrition goals. He is such a positive and optimistic person who is constantly encouraging and helps to get me on-track when I’m “off the beam”. Rick is acutely aware of when to push a little harder or to back off a bit when it’s appropriate. Rick is “real” and genuinely cares about his clients. He gets excited when a goal is met and in extremely encouraging when I fall short of my goals. I couldn’t ask for more than Rick has given me and couldn’t give a more ringing endorsement for his Personal Training services....more
Rick has been a fellow colleague of mine for over 10 years and recently I hired him to get my health back. He is beyond awesome at his job and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for amazing results. Because of Rick I am healthier, I have more energy and I’m down over 30 lbs in just a few months!
I was at the end of my rope. I was hopeless. I had tried everything I knew to do. I had tried multiple diets, paid for multiple trainers and pushed myself to the limits. I went on the Atkins Diet because it was all the rage. My friend lost 20 pounds in the first 2 weeks! Certainly I could do the same. After 4 months of living in ketosis, I gave up without any weight loss. This is when I went to the doctor who told me I had a thyroid disorder which can make weight loss difficult. I was thrilled! Now maybe something could help me. Nothing. I felt even more isolated. I started to want to stay in bed all day.
This was my wake up call. I’m not a depressive person. My body was failing me. I needed help. I needed to put it in the hands of a professional. This is when I met Rick...more
At the time we started working together I weighed 355 lbs and struggled just to walk from my car into the gym. With his extreme patience, caring and working relentlessly to change my defeated attitude and habits into a positive, winning outlook, I was able to lose 180 pounds and complete a 5k. In my mind, he will always wear a hero’s cape because I learned from him how to finally succeed at weight loss after 60+ years of trying.
I had a cliff jumping accident that left me with a shattered heal, a steel place and seven screws. My surgeon said I would never run or hike again. Fast forward ten years, and due to a sedentary lifestyle I was more than 40 lbs overweight, taking medicine for high cholestorol and completely unhappy with how I looked and felt. Then I met Rick Wells and began to train with him. He started me on a nutrition plan and encouraged me to run and hike again. As a result, I lost over 40 pounds, my cholesterol is normal and am medicine free. I have since ran a half marathon and completed the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim to Rim hike. Rick is an amazing trainer, encourager and overall great person who truly cares about my health and my personal well-being.
