  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Worked with Steve for the better part of two months. My original goal was oriented toward weight loss, but after learning all what Steve had to offer, I asked if our workouts could be focused on developing my boxing, as well. My boxing “skeels” really developed under his tutelage and shedding the weight just came naturally as a result of the workout intensity. If you’re looking for a babysitter or somebody to coddle you, look elsewhere; if you want a guy who’s really going to push you to be a better you, while sharing a few laughs along the way, look nowhere else. Unlike a lot of trainers who stick you on a treadmill while they screw around on their phones, Steve gives you 100% of his attention every time. And this guy knows boxing, kickboxing, jiu jitsu, MMA, fitness, nutrition — you name it. Can Bruce Lee say that? No. Bruce Lee is dead.

  • 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!!

  • I have been working with Steve since I moved to Dallas in October 2012. Before starting, I met with Steve to talk about my goals. He listened to what I had to say and built a plan that worked for me. Steve trains me three times a week, and he got me to change my diet. In my time with him, I dropped 4″ from my waist and dropped about 30 lbs. If that was not good enough, I have been putting on the muscle I wanted. Enough about me. Steve is the real deal as far as being a trainer. He’s not one of those trainers we have all had where we are told to do 10 reps while the trainer is looking at the phone or talking to someone else. Not only does he have the standard workout routines down, but he’s also inventive in coming up with new routines. Believe me, I am not the easiest client in the world, but he developed the routines I need for results. He is completely flexible with my schedule, and I always feel like he bends over backwards to meet my available time slots. Folks, there are a lot of gyms in Dallas and a lot of trainers. Bottom line is that you are not going to do any better than Steve. He’s got my business, and I am not going anywhere.

  • Steve has been my personal trainer for a year and a half now following a few health issues. The results I have achieved to date are largely due to Steves perfect combination of diverse training methods, individualized exercise programs & challenging yet achievable goal setting. His professionalism, extensive knowledge and enthusiastic commitment to his work and ultimately his clients, provides the perfect scenario for success and sets foundations for a new healthier lifestyle! I recommend his training without any reservations!!

  • Great boot camp! I have been working out with Steven for about 4-5 months and I have definitely seen results in my overall physique and even my eating habits – it is intense and he doesn’t let down but the results are worth it.​

    There are different exercises every week which keeps muscles confused so I feel like I am always building strength and muscle. Plus the price is amazing for all the workouts received. I would definitely recommend Fighting for Fitness whether you are looking for quick results or an entire lifestyle change.

  • 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.

  • I worked with Steve for 5 years before I moved away from Dallas. I have never had a trainer who knew the strengths and weaknesses of my body so well. He did a lot of physical therapy exercises for my back and neck which made so much of a difference in my day to day. Steve also has a wealth of knowledge about nutrition and lifestyle tips. Steve is more than a fitness trainer – he’s a great all around coach to get you healthier in every way.
