This is the best workout of the week. I’ve been working with Steve for over a year now and every session has been phenomenal. I came to Steve wanting to learn basic self defense and MMA. He... incorporates every aspect of fighting into each session, every workout is leaning experience. He’s always on time and has a plan for each session. Definitely a professional.read more

Steve is the man. I've known Steve for over a decade personally. I started working out with him after dealing with some long term injuries. Steve has really made an impact with the injuries I was... dealing with, that were long term in benefit. I have a longtime fitness background myself, and I'm pretty skeptical of most trainers, but Steve is the cream of the crop. He is the Dallas personal trainer that I really trust and who I decide to put my safety and well being in the hands of. He understands fitness, nutrition, injuries and the interconnectedness of the body ,he also truly cares about his clients. You can't go wrong with this guy.read more

A started working with Steve after Iearning that we lived in the same building. As a soccer player I had good leg strength but a weak core and upper body, my goal was to increase strength in these... areas. Steve and I met every week, initially focusing on my form so each exercise had maximum benefit and I didn't get injured. In a short period of time I had more energy, increased muscle definition, I'm stronger and lifting heavier every month. Each week there are new exercises with the right amount of sweat and pain that you know you've had a good workout! I no longer live in the same building but I still have Steve as part of my weekly routine.read more

Steve is an awesome trainer. Easygoing, knowledgeable and attentive, he focuses on my goals in each session and then adjust his workout plan based on my feedback throughout the session. He also... genuinely cares about his client and sees my success as his success. I would absolutely recommend him.read more

I am 51 and stronger and leaner than ever. My lower back pain is virtually non existent due to intense core strength and my functional strength is excellent. I look forward to the training sessions... and each one is totally unique with obvious significant forethought. In high school, I trained with Coach Gayle Hatch, who is a legend and was a U.S. Olympic Team coach. Our training is similar in many ways but even more intensive than with Coach Hatch.read more

Steve is an amazing trainer. I have been going to him for the past 3 months to lose weight and get healthy. And though I have lost about 25 lbs that I am beyond happy about, he has helped me realize... the greater importance of a healthy body and becoming a better me rather than just numbers on a scale. He has made sure to work with me on my goals and has supported me in my struggles. Rather than judging me for missteps, he used them as lessons to better myself the next time. He truly wants you to succeed and gives you the tools to do so. His sessions are personalized to get the best work out each and every day. Even when you feel like giving zero effort, he will push you to turn a lazy day into a productive session. You will leave the gym sweating and slightly short of breath, but it will be worth it.read more

I was 50+ pounds heavier when I first reached out to Steve Hess. I had hardly ever spent any time inside a gym, and to be honest, was completely intimidated by the whole idea of getting myself in to... shape. I had no idea what I was doing and had no idea how to reach the goals I had set for myself. Calling Steve was the best thing I could have done. He is everything you could want in a trainer. He'll teach you, motivate you, hold you accountable and is always available for any questions you might have . It's obvious that he genuinely wants to see his clients succeed. If you're overweight and/or new to exercise and getting healthy and wondering whether or not you should give Steve a try, trust me - do yourself a favor and don't hesitate. The man knows what he's doing. He will help you get where you want to go.read more

After my daughter's great results, I too started training with Steve. I agree with my daughter, he is the best trainer I have ever had! He taught me exercises I had never done before. I gained... strength, flexibility, and muscle tone, as well as losing weight. The exercise circuit was well rounded. Steve spends each session teaching how to do each exercise correctly. Steve made me realize how important daily nutrition is. Maximum results are achieved by a combination of exercise and good nutrition. I want to recommend Steve to anyone looking for a trainer!! read more

Steve has been my personal trainer for the past 5 months. He is the best personal trainer I have had! He has helped me to transform my diet and has given me tips on how to have a healthier lifestyle.... Steve is always available for questions and nutrition advice. He is professional and encouraging! He adds different routines each time, so it is challenging. I have lost several pounds and inches in all areas of my body. I am continuing to lose weight and almost to my goal! read more
