Review of Old-School Fitness by Richard Vandenberg

I decided to train at Old-School Fitness because I wanted workouts tailored to my needs plus a private space. For 10 years, I competed in figure shows and wanted a change from training isolated muscle groups and literally hours of cardio on step mills in gyms. CrossFit was an option, but overtraining and injury were always in the back of my mind. I wanted a fitness program for the long term.
Workouts at Old-School Fitness offer a lot of variety, which keeps me motivated and looking forward to my sessions – they incorporate strength, toning and cardio into full body exercises. I like using kettlebells, the BOSU, boxing and medicine balls. I’ve developed a lot more flexibility and functional strength – helps me working around the house and managing 4 large energetic dogs.
Training with Rick has helped me get back into shape physically and mentally. He pushes me just enough to go beyond what I think are my limits, but also is in tune when I need to back off in intensity yet still provide me a dynamic workout. I’ve gone done several clothing sizes without the stress of a strict competition diet and have gotten out of the rut of my usual workout routine.
I really enjoy the privacy of the studio too - usually it’s just my trainer and myself. I don’t feel self-conscious about learning new exercises or have to share my personal space and equipment with others. Training at Old-School Fitness has definitely put the fun back into my working out.
I’ve been a client for 2 years and continue to enjoy my workouts and time spent at Old-School Fitness.

Skip the Cross-Fit and big box/cookie cutter gyms and go see Rick and Sharon. After an initial assessment, each workout is customized to your specific needs. No upselling, no contracts, just personalized training at your pace. New to working out? Been a while since you hit the gym? Not a problem! Are you in shape and want help with a specific goal? Not a problem! As a 42 year old who sits at a desk most of the day, they have helped nearly eliminate my back pain and increase my mobility, well as help me with my long term weight loss and fitness goals. Trust me, I've been to many other trainers, and Old School does it right.

I've been training with both Sharon and Rick for nearly a year (3x/week). I've lost 25 pounds, gained visible muscle but most importantly healed a serious back injury through their carefully customized workouts. The studio is very private - only one or two clients in the gym at a time. They emphasize technique and pay close attention to form which I especially appreciate having been injured. They are patient and listen and never push beyond my capability. I'm doing exercises now that I would have thought impossible to do even before my injury.

I am very grateful that I found Old School Fitness. As someone who does not enjoy exercise for the sake of exercise - now that I've experienced the benefits - I am committed to investing in my health in a way I never did before. I highly recommend Old School Fitness to anyone at any fitness level.

I have been working out with Sharon at Old-School Fitness for a little over a year. I’ve learned how to set achievable nutrition and fitness goals so that the changes are sustainable and results are long-term. I love training in their studio since there is never more than one other person training at the same time as me. Sharon knows what I'm capable of and always has a great workout planned that pushes me just enough. The results have been awesome--fat loss, toned muscles, and improved self-esteem!

After suffering a soft tissue injury, heeding medical advice and spending 6 months with PT and massage therapy, I felt things were at a stalemate. Then I found the next level to achieve full recovery. The training and knowledge I receive at Old School Fitness has not only restored my health, but encouraged me to continue on to a better fitness level. I am steadily seeing a dramatic improvement in my strength, toning and even muscle definition through the program tailored for me. Their training has and still is paying dividends in my overall health and well-being. I highly recommend both Sharon and Rick.
