I was referred to Carl Warren for personal training services 10 years ago by a mutual friend.  At that time, my goal was to lose 20lbs. Given that I had worked with other personal trainers over the course of my adult life, I quickly realized that that there was something special about Mr. Warren. His focus was not just on my physical being, it was on me as a total person – mind, body and spirit. He did not take his partnership with me lightly. From the time I presented for any given workout through my warm-up period, he accurately assessed the state of my total being and subsequently tailored each workout accordingly. With his help, I became healthier and met my goal! He did his work in a highly professional, motivating manner with great skill and integrity being “present” at all times. Over the course of our relationship, he has acted in the capacity of my trainer, counselor and life coach. Carl Warren is consistently exceptional and I would not hesitate to endorse his services. “
