Professional Training Works

Personal Trainers have been in the Wisconsin news ever since Bret Farve, GB Quarterback, showed up for camp in possibly the best shape of his life.  In addition to being in great shape, he also has a strong positive outlook on the Packer’s season!

However, you don’t have to be a professional athlete to reap such benefits from using a Personal Trainer (like Kevin Monroe). About ten weeks ago, Kevin set up a training program tailored specially for me. The goals/design were set to lose weight, firm up, and improve golfing and skiing readiness/performance. The program included aerobic exercise, high repetition weight training, and sport-centered stretching activities.

To date, the results have been fantastic! Body weight is down 10 %, with the “inches” melting around the belt line while adding lean muscle in the back, legs, and arms. The results have translated immediately into current sports activity—golf. My drives are at least 20 yards longer and unbelievably straighter.  Also, my stamina is now outstanding. This translates into results. Take a look at the USGA handicap index results received by e-mail today. Kevin’s personal training program started in late May. Not yet reported in these results are the last three rounds at the Meadows of Six Mile Creek—a 78, 76, and a today…73—easily the best of my life! The handicap index will likely be down near 7 when those go into the calculations…. so maybe Bret Farve would like to play a round of golf?

My attitude has changed dramatically. I just can’t wait for downhill ski season—instructing/coaching at Cascade Mountain in Portage will be the most fun ever. A trip to Colorado looks better and better—maybe even a shot at officiating the World Cup Races at Beaver Creek!
If you see me at the club — please come over and give me some support, or better yet, tell me how Kevin has set up your program and what results YOU are achieving. The results don’t lie — Personal (Professional) Training works!

Highly Recommend Online Training

I’ve often thought I owe you another email to tell you what your encouragement and online training notes did for me. I have been pretty good about keeping a routine. This winter, I did two spin classes a week and supplemented it with the weighs and elliptical at home. Your online training got me to lose an additional 10lbs… but more than that, I gained muscle and felt ‘fit.’ I enjoyed how you were able to recommend a workout that I could understand with what I had available.

I highly recommend online training with Kevin Monroe, especially the 16-week transformation program! I’m amazed at how well the email instruction worked for me.

What did I have to lose…

I had been a member of several other fitness clubs; however, those memberships produced minor results. When I researched Kevin Monroe, I decided to sample his services, and I thought… what do I have to lose?

Well, let me tell you:
– Body weight down 30 pounds
– 100 point drops in cholesterol
– 166 point drop in Triglycerides
– HDL rose 8 points while LDL dropped 68 points
.5 drop in Prostatic Antigen and Blood pressure plummeted to 102/72 with a pulse of 68.

All of this is due to the exercise and diet programs designed by Kevin Monroe. His strong passion for his profession as a personal trainer convinced me to follow the exercise and dietary schedule. I observed that he practiced what he preached as he had an exercise and dietary routine.
The exercising was difficult initially, but Kevin’s encouragement and willingness to always be available for conversation helped make the initial exercise and diet bearable.

Quickly it developed into a habit and became a part of my daily routine to exercise five days a week and follow the nutrition plan 24/7.

Thank you, Kevin!

Easy-to-follow Program

Monroerealtraining.com put together a comprehensive and well-planned program for me. One phone call to Kevin resulted in an intense and easy-to-follow program for personal training at my workout center. They provided me with all the data needed from start to finish to obtain my personal goals and the results I wanted in easy ABC directions. Kevin has followed up with several calls with additional suggestions to increase the intensity and move to another level in my program. Results have been beyond my expectations. I can’t say enough about this program and the work Kevin has done for me.
Thank you

Post Rehab – Whole New Challenges

Right after surgery, my upper body was stiff, and my neck was sore. I looked up a personal trainer I heard about in the Madison area. He’d been in the Marine Corps, and his name was Kevin Monroe. I wanted to get some information on post-rehab. Next thing you know, I’m signing up to train with Kevin. He told me I needed to set goals. I’d always wanted to ski the American Birkenbeiner. After some personal training, I was in the best shape of my life, but I didn’t have the technique for skiing. I’d only been out four times. But I did it anyway! I started running 5Ks and 10Ks. They were a whole new challenge. I won a medal or two. Then I started running longer distances, eventually Marathons and my first Ironman Wisconsin in 2004, and the Boston Marathon in 2005! Today I train people for endurance (biking, running, and Ironmans)! Thank you so much!

Thank You!

I wish to THANK YOU so much for all you have done for me – just getting me into a routine of exercise is a MAJOR accomplishment – the personal training has been invaluable!  I hope to retain your services for training in the future, even after I move.

Again, Kevin, thank you SO MUCH for all you have done for me – it’s so appreciated.

Met Personal Goals

Kevin sat down with me for about 15-20 minutes, asking me detailed questions about my personal fitness goals and my diet.  A few days later, Kevin had put together an awesome routine for me. The routine covered every area of fitness I was looking for. My personal goals were to gain overall mass, new ways/techniques of lifting, better nutrition, and better cardio. Since I have started my new workout routine with Kevin, I have a new sense of motivation. I have also met all my personal goals. Not only have I met my goals, but I have also avoided all types of injuries thanks to Kevin’s attention to detail. I would strongly recommend Kevin as a personal trainer for anyone.

Diet and Exercise are Good for Us

Dear Friends,

We all know diet and exercise are good for us, and we need to do them either to lose weight or maintain a healthy lifestyle. The problem is… how to go about it!
I am a 49-year-old nurse who juggles a full-time career and family and tries to have a hobby. As women, we know how hard that is to accomplish. Now let’s add diet and exercise into that mix, and what will we get… A recycle bin full of canned diet milkshakes, a cupboard full of cardboard meals that even your teenager won’t eat, and an exercise program that lasts about two weeks. The results are often just barely adequate and short term and the cycle of frustration and guilt sets in along with throwing out that favorite pair of jeans you know won’t ever fit again.

One day, I stumbled upon a program involving a personal trainer, which included diet and exercise. I needed focus, direction, and a diet and exercise program for my lifestyle and me.  I needed accountability, goals, and a support person who knew what I wanted and how to help me obtain these goals.
Kevin’s personal training and weight loss sounded like the answer to my problem. I have been working with Kevin for four months, reached my initial goals, and now working towards even more. I have lost weight; I am stronger and healthier and just feel “all over good!” At times it has been hard, but through personal training, I have learned that the result is well worth the effort and continues to be so. It’s a positive lifestyle change.

I highly recommend Kevin’s program to anyone struggling to become the strong healthy person we’re meant to be. So give it a try… Personal Training works, and Kevin knows how to do it!

P.S.  Keep those favorite jeans!

Strengthened and Stretched my Grumpy Old Muscles

Dear Kevin,

I so enjoyed our workouts this summer. The routines you created for me were interesting and effective for my exercise needs as an active older adult. I experienced much less pain at the end of the summer than I have in the past; I attribute that to our sessions, which strengthened and stretched my grumpy old muscles. And, as a bonus, those deceptively simple stomach exercises on the balance ball slimmed my torso. Given my fondness for food and wine, that was a real surprise!

I also appreciate your flexibility. On the occasions when I was feeling stressed and deflated by life’s difficulties, you adjusted the routine so that I could still do a workout. I invariably felt better both physically and emotionally after those sessions.

I am looking forward to seeing you in September and next summer. Please give my regards to Connie.

With much gratitude,
