Overcame Emotional Eating & Renewed Energy!

"Training with UMAX has allowed me to a take a 360 degree look at my well-being and to go on the record about the vision that I have for my life.  I was asked to examine various aspects of my thinking patterns or behavior and their respective impact on my ability to consistently work on embodying and realizing the vision that I have for my life.  I was asked to do exercises which both revealed and challenged the status quo of how I usually operate.  In my case, it has allowed me to find the momentum necessary to break through a mental and physical plateau. I am filled with renewed energy. I have found the courage necessary to start on a nutrition plan that I could only have done by letting go of emotional eating. I am also training for the Spartan race where I look forward to completing amazing feats of athleticism, strength, and power. Overall, the journey that I embarked on through since training with UMAX has allowed me to shift into a higher gear and to continue my efforts at self-actualization."

Lost 80 Pounds in First 1.5 Years With UMAX!

"My fitness journey has been a long one. I have had several trainers in different states. But meeting UMAX was destined. My aunt was originally a client of his. She used to show me videos of her workouts and ask me to go to kickboxing class he does to Soca music. It took me some months but I finally pushed myself to take the class. And I was so impressed by it that I signed up for personal training classes. I have been with him ever since. He is amazing at what he does. He doesn't only just give your physical exercise but he exercises your mental as well. Thats what made him stand out to me from all the trainers I have encountered. I lost 80 pounds in my first year and half with him. I was looking like a snack and half. I would recommend him to the world. He helped me achieved a goal I wanted for so long through determination, perseverance, and dedication."

Lost Over 45 Pounds In 6 Months!

Umax educated me in so many ways from eating the right food, making the right smoothies, meal prep, etc. But what I love most is he NEVER and I mean NEVER gave up on me even when I gave up on myself and that says a lot from a person. That it's not about the money that it's about my end goal and what I wanted to accomplish. Umax would always call and check up on me to see how I was doing even if were not training.. Now my fitness journey was extremely hard but successful- I lost over 45 lbs in this picture and it took us 6 months to get there . Within that 6 months he pushed me to do things I've never thought I could do such as pushing 70lbs weights, running on a treadmill while it being off YES I said OFF, doing pullups like a man ( which I always wanted to do). He taught me about burpees and running for a long distance (mind you I hate both), I learned how to box. He also made me run with a 100lb boxing bag on my back which I never thought I could ever do and so much more. I've learn to stop complaining (well at least out loud) but he showed me how much I can do. With this journey I was able to encourage so many family and friends with what I accomplished. So Umax thank you for always being you and being so passionate about your career and with your clients. Thank you for educating me on so many things that I would never forget and pushing me to be a better person and I know it was a lot of work but you never gave up on me and I will never forget that. I'm forever grateful. Thank you so much.

Neck and Chest Back to College Measurements!

"Training with UMAX has been a great experience. It wasn't long before I started to see and feel the results of his personalized training regiments. After a year of weekly training sessions with UMAX, my strength, endurance, and flexibility are vastly improved.


I used to have a visibly fit body in high school from playing competitive sports year-round, but my upper body strength was never where I wanted it to be. It only got worse after high school as my level of physical activity dropped significantly. Per my request, UMAX helped me build muscle mass in my upper body and improved my core strength significantly.


I was recently measured for a new suit and dress shirts and even the sales associate was impressed. After taking my chest measurement, he said, "Oh...43 inches. I see you've been working out." The only other time my chest was 43" is when I was significantly overweight in college. My neck is back to college-age measurements as well (17 inches), but without the double chin/excess fat. In other words, UMAX is turning me into a beast!


The best part about working with UMAX by far is the knowledge I continue to gain. I used to be completely lost at the gym or when trying to exercise at home. Now I'm able to work out with confidence on my own. It would take me an entire day at the gym to go through all the different exercises UMAX has taught me. Even without a gym or any equipment to speak of, I can still execute an extremely intensive and well-rounded workout."

Lost 12 Pounds on  the MAXLETE SUMMER WARRIOR Transformation Challenge!

"My experience with the Summer Warrior Transformation Challenge was AMAZING! Before I met UMax, I felt stuck in a vicious cycle that left me feeling like I couldn't lose weight again. After just two weeks, people noticed a difference in the way I carried myself. I felt accountable and capable of approaching weight loss in a different way. The customized workouts and the fabulous APP gave me the confidence I needed to get back in the weights room and focus on myself in the gym environment. It also allowed me the space to figure out that I CAN workout at home!! UMax is passionate about debunking weight loss myths and educating us about nutrition and exercise. And he does so without judgement. He creates a safe environment where each of us felt heard, listened to and ultimately challenged to face our real fears and explore ways in which we might stand in our own way. This transformation program along with UMAX's professional integrity, experience in fitness and natural ability to connect with and inspire people, has helped me to learn new tools to stay focused and motivated. For that and so much more, I am truly thankful."

Lost 7 Pounds on the MAXLETE SUMMER WARRIOR Transformation Challenge!


"This Transformation Program changed my life! It reshaped my view on fitness, exercise, nutrition, focus and determination. Umax and his associated trainers helped me to push myself past what I thought I could do. They taught me proper form for some exercises. But, the biggest change was my mental state. Fitness is part physical and part mental. They go hand in hand! Learning that and understanding that during this challenge really boosted my workouts and outlook on fitness!"
