When I started to train with Austin Villamil, I was trying to improve my overall health and fitness, with an eye towards also boosting my mood and sleep. I thought that working with a personal trainer would give me the structure and accountability I needed so that I wouldn’t just give up.
Working with Austin has been exactly what I needed. My time with him each week is always fun. He challenges me, but also pays attention to what my body needs on any given day. I can feel the progress I’ve been making, thanks to Austin’s ongoing encouragement and support, his attention to detail, his dedication to helping me with all my various aches and pains, and his warmth and positive attitude.

"Results! Ever freaked out before looking at the results of a test only to discover you ACED it because you had the DOPEST teacher who set you up for success? If you have not, then you need to get with the program with Austin Stubbs at Perform for Life. If you have, then you must already be on his program. I began my fitness journey in February 2017 with high expectations for success for myself. But I also was concerned about the usual hard and heavy tidings of menial progress, thinking I would reach these goals in 1-2 years. Luckily the expert team at PFL matched me up with Austin Stubbs. My requirements were excellent chemistry and excellent results. My first workout with Austin was the best workout of my life. Beforehand he had prepared a careful analysis of my body and honed in on dormant muscle groups in my body. This made me feel alive and connected my self discipline with the physical/body work. Within 2 months of regular training I had reduced my body fat percentage from 17.8% to 12.8%, and had gained 2 lbs of lean body mass. I had exceeded my 1-2 year goal in 2 months! I eliminated so much fat and put on lean, hard muscle mass. The results came so fast and furious that I had to ask if Austin and had an insurance policy to replace his clients' denim jeans with new sized down ones! He didnt have such an insurance policy but he did have a plan to build up my glutes to keep my nice selvedge jeans from falling to my feet, and it worked! So, I get to lose all the fat, build a better but and keep my jeans on, all in a day's work, no way!! The chemistry is outstanding and Austin takes careful notes and has a very organized and individualized plan. He is flexible with his time, early or late, and adjusts goals as progress is made. I continue to work with more refined goals now to keep my 41 year old body and mind younger and healthier than ever. I did the right thing for myself and so should you."

"I trained with Charles for three months to prep for my wedding and it was the best choice I could have made! Charles has a great way of pushing me to do things that I would never do working out on my own, while also helping to understand the mechanics and the reason why I am doing the exercises. Charles' laid back attitude and calming presence makes workouts fly by. He consistently listened to the exercises I enjoyed and helped to tailor my workouts to the things I enjoyed.
Most importantly, I can see a huge difference in my strength and body composition since starting to work with Charles. I had particular areas that I wanted to target for my wedding dress - Charles not only improved those areas but also improved my entire body. He paid attention to my body composition and my strengths and weaknesses and worked to improve those.
Overall, I am so thankful that I decided to work with Charles, and look forward to continuing to work with him in the future!"

My experience with Perform For Life has been life changing. For many years I avoided returning to a gym due to an injury experienced with a former trainer during a workout. While doing an evaluation with Justine and Bryant, I was introduced to Michael Phillips who would become my trainer for the next two months. Having not done a formal fitness regime in some time, Michael started with simple exercises that enabled quick progression and results. I gained confidence with his mentorship and felt safe working with him. His detailed, intelligent and research based approach to my program created a sense that I was working with one of the best. Over the past two months I have created results and never have felt pushed beyond my limits. When I experience aches and pains, Michael works around my issues and we continue to move forward. I could not have had a better experience with Michael and the entire P4L team. Despite my relocation out of the area, I will continue to use Michael to write a program for me and will commute into the city once a month to continue my progress with the intention of eventually doing so on my own. Before meeting Michael and the rest of the team I would never have thought this possible. My outlook on fitness has changed and I now have the confidence to live a healthier lifestyle. Thank you to Michael and the entire team at Perform For Life.
