“As a medical school student and Olympic distance tri-athlete, my health and physical fitness have always been a major part of my life. As a result, I never felt that I would benefit from the assistance of a personal trainer. Spurred by curiosity and a rapidly approaching college spring break in the Dominican Republic, however, I decided to try a workout with one of Beacon Hill’s personal trainers.
I first came to Will Gibson in the spring of 2007 with the goal of becoming bigger, faster and stronger. Will not only exceeded all my expectations as a personal trainer, but also thoroughly impressed me with the variety in our workouts and his knowledge of strength and endurance training. If there was an exercise I did’t like, he replaced it; if I got lazy or unmotivated, he pushed me harder. Will was constantly challenging me and pushing me to new limits. As a result of working out with Will, I saw significant and rapid increases everywhere.
I was so pleased with the results that I have continually gone back to Will as a personal trainer.”

“Working with Will Gibson gave me the jump-start I needed to take control of and make the best of my time spent at the gym. His good humor, patience and encouragement kept me pushing myself to reach ever-higher goals. In the time I spent working with Will, I was able to greatly improve my health and athletic ability. The benefits of personal training can't be overstated for the person who wants to get started in the gym but isn't quite sure how or for the person who is a veteran but is looking for a way to create diversity in their routine.”

“The Personal Training Staff here at BHAC go above and beyond to help out their clients. They are committed to helping their clients achieve their personal goals and coaching them along during sessions. Even when a session is not scheduled, programs and instructions are left to help their clients through a workout on their own.
From my personal experience, Lee, my personal trainer, has worked with me to create a workout suitable for my style. She is constantly checking on my progress and giving me words of encouragement if she sees me "slacking" and compliments me when she is proud of my work. I have been very impressed with the Personal Training Staff here at BHAC.”

“I made the decision to start training at BHAC back in December and asked Will, the Club Manager if he could match me up with a trainer who had a fun personality as well as someone who would push me hard during our training sessions. He couldn't have matched me up with anymore perfectly than with Lee Crabb, my trainer of 3 months! When I met Lee for the 1st time, she was so upbeat and I loved her enthusiasm. Lee was very thorough in talking with me about my goals and recommended circuit training which I absolutely love because it mixes things up and I get a killer workout!”

“I first met Eric when I walked into BHAC. He had a big smiling face but a no nonsense image about him. As a personal trainer myself, I knew that I wanted someone experienced and someone that wouldn’t put up with any excuses…any! I had a goal of competing for Miss Massachusetts USA and knew that I had a long way to go. I wasn’t going to get there myself.
Eric laid out the ground rules: train hard, eat well, and keep your sights on your goal. He wouldn’t accept anything less since I wanted nothing less. Eric was my voice of reason when I didn’t think I could or wanted to skip one day. I can remember some mornings not wanting to wake up and do cardio. Truth be told, if I didn’t do my cardio in the morning, I wasn’t going to do it at all. Eric challenged me to keep a journal, wear a heart monitor, and change up my walking routes so that I could stay encouraged.
Those few things helped, but it was Eric’s ever changing, ever challenging workouts that got my body into the best shape of my life. One day we would work hard on muscle training. The next workout would consist of endurance training by means of running stairs and jumping over boxes. My body tired, but my mind and muscles were stimulated.
Eric went the distance with me as he does with all of his clients. He saw me through my hard times and even saw me compete at the pageant. Eric is not just a trainer. He is a mentor, a teacher, a challenger, and supporter. Trainers are easy to come by, but a trainer like Eric is priceless.”

“Eric is full of energy and ideas. I never tire of the workouts he plans and have made great gains with his guidance and support. Having him as a trainer is a perfect compliment to my own training plan. I would highly recommend Eric to anyone interested in taking their fitness to the next level.”
