My name is Christina, and I have been training with Umo Callins for the past eight months. I have had trainers in the past but none of them were as passionate, dedicated and driven in helping me reach my personal fitness goals as Umo Callins. On my first day of training I was a little nervous because I did not have good experiences with trainers in the past and didn’t want to have a repeat. But the minute I met Umo, I knew that she was the real deal. Not only did her body look amazing but she had a very positive and encouraging attitude during the entire work out. If she saw that I was about to give up and call it quits she was right there cheering me on telling me that I could do it. By the end of the work out I was soaked in sweat and exhausted but I felt that I conquered the workout and was ready for the next one.
Umo is very educated in creating workouts that will impact the specific areas of my body that I want to improve. When she is instructing my workouts, she shows me the correct form in which to do them and what muscles will be emphasized for the particular move. If I am having problems doing a particular move she will show me modifications instead of just skipping the move all together. One of my big problems with trainers in the past was when we are working out they would be talking to other people at the gym and not really paying any attention to me and what I was doing. Not Umo! She gave me her full attention throughout the entire workout.
Another great aspect about having Umo as a trainer is that she is a Registered Dietitian. Umo has helped me tremendously with healthy meal planning and starting on the right kind of supplements. I never knew how big of an impact a healthy diet can make on my workouts and body until I started training with Umo. She has showed me that just because it says “low fat” or “fat free” doesn’t always mean that they really are. I have learned how to look at a nutrition label and pick out what ingredients are really in it and what will end up causing me more harm than good. She has given me some great recipes that are healthy and actually taste really good. With all of her advice and guidance I have done a complete 180 with my diet and nutrition, and I am seeing results that I never thought I could have.
Since I started training with Umo back in March of 2012 I have been able to run in three 5k races, some of which have had multiple obstacles. I have shopped for pants in smaller sizes. I have more energy during the day, and my work has improved. I can finally wear a bikini at the public pool or lake proudly! All in all, Umo is the real deal when it comes to trainers. She truly cares about her clients, and always wants the best for them. I don’t think I could ever go to another trainer because she has set the bar so high for what is expected out of a trainer. I am so grateful and blessed to have her as my trainer.
