"I just wanted to let you know that I made the Varsity Lacrosse Team at CCHS! I am so happy and excited! I wanted to thank you so much for helping me get in shape, it really made a difference for me during tryouts! I will definitely be back over the summer once our season is over! "
"When I started, I was 100. Now I am 50 years old. PTI is the best and most intelligent training program I have every been in. It has done wonders for my balance and over-all health."
"We wanted to send you a quick note expressing our gratitude for all Sean Duncan is doing for Zach. He is not only helping him with his training and running, but also he is a wonderful role model for being a well-rounded, thoughtful person. We are impressed with Sean in many ways and truly appreciate his comprehensive approach to his work with young athletes."
-JENN AND DAVE MUNN
"I have been training with Yury five months, and in that time I have seen enormous improvements in my physical strength and endurance. Yury immediately saw where I had weaknesses and identified areas of imbalance, and was able to develop a program to address these issues. As well as this, he introduced me to a wide range of agility and plyometric exercises to help improve performance. His wealth of knowledge of principles of training make each session very interesting. Although all the sessions are physically very demanding, they are also very enjoyable. I find myself looking forward to each workout with enthusiasm.
The areas where I previously had minor recurring joint pain and small injuries have strengthened significantly so that I no longer have these problems. I fee much stronger and fitter, and my muscle tone and definition is greatly improved. I am amazed at the improvement in my overall strength. It has been a great pleasure working with Yury, and I feel privileged to have had such a talented trainer to help and advise me."
-LUCINDA WRIGHT, triathlon competitor
"Yury has been my personal trainer for nearly ten years. Although Yury has many years of experience training and coaching young athletes, his knowledge of physical training has also allowed him to carefully tailor a training regime for someone like me - a woman in my sixties with various injuries, including a total hip replacement. Yury's guidance has made it possible for me to gain more strength and flexibility than I thought was possible at my age. One indication of the depth of Yury's knowledge is the way he adapts his client's training regime on a minute by minute basis through intense, detailed observation of his client's performance at each repetition of an exercise. His very personalized, customized approach to personal training is based on years of experience and acute observational skills."
-BETSY CONSTANTINE, age 70
"Our training was absolutely successful and I skied better than ever at 10,800' for the last three days. No adverse effects from altitude, and great recovery between runs. I haven't kept accurate track but I would estimate I've skied 40,000' of vertical and I have a full day of skiing ahead.
Thank you and PTI for all your help and support! I couldn't have enjoyed this experience without you."
"I made the team. They moved me to wide receiver the day I got here but I worked my way into the slot where they hand me the ball some. They went from 96 to 75 guys, so doing all the little things really mattered. Thanks for all your time this summer, it was certainly worth it for me. I’ve never felt faster. "
"Personal Training International has changed my life. Four months ago I started working with PTI because the result of an accident had caused the muscles around my hip joint to deteriorate with resulting sciatic pain. Not only has the pain been relieved, I have learned a whole new method of remaining strong,active and energetic into older age. I can think of no other practice where trainers are dedicated to developing the perfect ratio of strength, stability and balance in their clients. PTI practices preventative medicine at its best."
-SUSAN NESSEN, age 78
"Yury and Svetlana have proved that someone my age can be taught new tricks for fitness. In short, they run a world-class operation for people of all ages. That is not surprising given Yury's previous experience as an Olympic track-and-field-coach in Ukraine."
-DANIEL BUSHNELL, age 98
"Yury, thank you for your training and your brilliant support and coaching."
-JARROD SHOEMAKER, age 26, Olympian, under 23 World Champion in triathlon
"My training with PTI has given me the competitive edge in track and field, helping me to qualify for the Indoor National Track and Field Championship in 2004 in the 800 meters."
-DAN KAMAN, age 23, 800 meter runner
"I just want to let you know what a wonderfully transforming experience it has been to work out at PTI.
As you probably know, Sean has a great talent for inspiring and motivating others. Also, he was able to assess my specific needs and customize training to fit them - and then push me just the right amount! Somehow he managed to get me past a lifelong aversion to exercise.Thanks you so much for everything!"
"Yury has been my personal trainer for 10 years. In that time I have nearly doubled my physical strength, lost 20 pounds, made major improvements in my physical endurance, I can normally outlast tennis opponents that are 20-30 years younger, and greatly improved my flexibility and balance - a significant deficit in the elderly."
-WENDELL G. SYKES, age 82, tennis player
"I have been a client at PTI for the past six years and have had a phenomenal experience with them. I have received very individual attention to my needs through two pregnancies, the recovery from having a baby, and strengthening my entire body. My workouts added tremendous gains in my strength and power. I run faster, I sleep better, and I eat more healthily as a result.Yury and Svetlana listen carefully to my needs, they are sensitive to changes in my life, and they are interested in giving me a professional, thorough, and enjoyable workout. They offer new and exciting things to their regimen all the time and it keeps things interesting. PTI is a fantastic place to grow your whole self!"
-JOHANNA BOYNTON, age 42, mother of four
