Eddie is an awesome trainer! He mixes up work outs to make it fun! And really knows how to correct any weak spots! I feel like I’m going to recess and physical therapy at the same time

Eddie is incredible and everyday pushes me to be better than my last session. I used to love the gym but fell away for about a year because I couldn’t keep motivated and wasn’t challenging myself. Now I love it again because I’m pushing myself farther than I ever even would’ve tried in the past. Highly recommend. More...

My husband and didn't have any experience working out or the time to really hit the gym every day. Guard Up worked with our goals and schedules. Hoping to start using them for meal prep soon to get back to eating healthy. More...
