I began Pilates training with Keleigh last summer.  Having never done Pilates before I was excited to try something new and Keleigh did not disappoint.  Every session Keleigh's training techniques challenged and encouraged me.  Highly recommend! More...

Having not done Pilates before, I wasn't sure what to expect. But Keleigh was very patient, thoughtful and attentive throughout the entire session. I will definitely be back for another session!!! More...

I am just finishing up a 6 month program at Lifestyles Personal Training, and I can say the experience far exceeded my expectations!  Mark and Drew really honed in on what I wanted to accomplish with my fitness goals and helped me push towards them fast and had a ton of fun along the way. From the first initial body assessment to the insane library of nutritional information I was given and all the way down to the last workout, It has been the best "gym" experience I have had. Every workout is different and I always leave my session feeling like I have accomplished a good workout. They are incredibly accommodating with scheduling, always a no hassle change when life gets crazy. Something I noticed that was different from many gyms and trainers I have worked with, THE ENVIRONMENT. Mark and Drew are always encouraging and positive. Aside from the pain of pushing your muscles, you will look forward to every workout and it will quickly become part of your daily routine that you won't wan't to miss. I packed on about 12 lbs of of muscle and have reshaped my body into something I enjoy looking at in the mirror. I can't recommend Lifestyles enough, mention my name and Mark will add more weight to any workout. lol.  ;-) More...

What can I say. I've had personal trainers in the past but nobody like Keleigh. She listens to you, makes adjustments for you, and offers alternatives to an exercise if you're having problems doing it. She's the best trainer I've had A+++ More...

I have been coming here for a few months and I love it! I originally looked into personal trainers for my knee troubles and to get fit, and Mark and Drew have helped tremendously. They both really know what they are doing. Every workout is different and I always leave my session feeling like I have accomplished a good workout for the day. I go to ASU, and it is super convenient for me because they are always super flexible with my schedule. The gym has kettlebells, weights, machines, and tires to drag outside. Right away, I was sent some helpful food tips and best things to buy at grocery stores! I am always so motivated and would recommend anyone to try lifestyles. More...

Keleigh is an excellent instructor, great communication and direction.  Each session is new and challenging.  Keleigh runs on time, and flexible with my schedule (she'll even come to my home/office).  I really appreciate how she checks-in with me to see how I'm doing the day after a good workout.  Keleigh shares exercises with me to do on my own, always encouraging!  The best instructor in the Valley in my opinion.

First of all, pilates is simply  body transforming. Over several years off and on, I have taken various classes, private, semi-private and group, both with reformer and mat.  While in AZ temporarily, I casted about for a trainer so as not to lose progress I had made in my home state.  I was lucky enough to come across Keleigh and, boy howdy, has she taken it up a few notches with my practice!  She pays very close attention to the details of the movements she guides you through, always changes it up and clearly has a passion for the practice.  Her home studio is very simple, clean and welcoming.  Do not be intimated in the least if you are a beginner and if you are experienced, you will be very happy with Keleigh's level of instruction.

Last summer I decided I was ready to look into exercise assist type options - gym, personal trainer, classes, etc.  During my search, I came across Keleigh at Balanced Strength.  I liked the idea of being able to work out in a home-based setting, and she had excellent reviews, so I emailed her.  She was prompt in her reply and very courteous.I met with Keleigh the following week and I learned just how challenging Pilates is.  But I liked it enough to go back .  Keleigh creates challenging workouts, but she's also very good at making sure you rest when you need to.  And if something doesn't feel right during any part of the workout, she's good at making instant modifications to avoid injury.  Keleigh is also good about changing things up.  Minus a few scheduling conflicts, I've seen her weekly for 6 months now and have only repeated a couple of exercises that I can remember.  We have also incorporated a few HIIT workouts and even a hybrid of HIIT with Pilates.I have struggled with liking exercise my entire life, but I actually look forward to my weekly sessions with Keleigh.  I highly recommend her!

Ah, I have so many good things to say about this gym!! I've been seeing Drew here for a year now and it's been hands-down the best training experience I've ever had. Both Mark and Drew are great. We started with a fitness analysis to get a baseline, which was actually really fun. We also talked about my goals and timeline for them. Then I started seeing Drew three times a week for 45 minutes each session. We do something different each time, which is why I like it. It's not just 3 sets of 10 of exercise A, B, and then C. Drew & Mark have so much knowledge that they put you through your paces with tons of different exercises to work various muscle groups. I've done movements (with & without weights) that I never thought I'd be able to do. The space is clean, totally friendly and non-intimidating, easy to get to, easy to park. I love going here to stay fit, and I'm thrilled with the results, too. I can't recommend them highly enough!! More...

I met Keleigh first through a studio she was working at. She was----and remains--- very dedicated to the "art". She is very precise as to make sure you are doing the movement correctly and honestly, the first instructor I've had who educates you as you go and asking how you feel, where do you feel it, etc.  Although she has a wonderful personality, she does not spend your time (aka your money!!) "gabbing" about things you might not find relevant to your workout. We've recently started to mix up my work outs and adding in some HIIT and Tabata-----wow!! Kick my "high knee"!!! Great job!! I'm in my mid 50's and enjoying my work outs again----thanks K! More...

I tried Pilates a few years ago at my company gym and then again at a local gym. At that point I decided it was not for me. Last month a friend of mine recommended Keleigh and figured I would give it one more shot. I am so glad I did. The one on one sessions are worth every penny. I had never worked with a reformer before and I have to say that it was the best part. I have only been able to do a few sessions so far but I am excited to step it up and start going more frequently. More...

Last year, I was suffering from an extremely tight lower back, weak core, and weak me, which lead to a month of agonizing pain and barely being able to walk. I've never been hit by a bus before, but I'm sure that's what I was feeling like. I had constant pain in my lower back, and when sitting, my sciatica would flair up sending sharp pains down to my toes. Anyway, I went to Mark since I have heard great things about him, they were correct. They helped with stretching out the muscles while strengthening at the same time and within a month, I was pain free. I continued with them for the 9 months and have seen great results. I've lost 14lbs, 3% body fat, 3 inches on my waist, and I feel great. I've gone from benching 25 lbs dumbbells to 60 lbs, being able to do pull ups, and leg pressing almost 500 lbs. I would be a lot farther on my weight loss if I would have cut the copious amounts of delicious beer and terrible food out earlier in my training, but I couldn't say no to that sweet Fresh Squeezed IPA and massive burgers. Once I did, the changes really started to take shape. I started at 3 times a week for 45 minutes, which was perfect for building a routine and getting back into shape. The greatest thing about Mark is his passion to helping you achieve your goals. I haven't met another trainer nearly as dedicated as him. He does have a couple other trainers that he works with and they are top notch. In addition, he schedules you so that you get the attention you need to improve your form and have a fun time working out. If you are ready to get in shape or need help with injuries then I recommending giving him a call,getting an assessment, and if all is good then getting started. More...

Picture it: Super Bowl Sunday, this year. I've decided not to go to a party because I feel like it will get in the way of me stuffing more and more food in my mouth while watching my Broncos lose. Well, first of all, they won! Second of all, when it comes to a personal Super Bowl Party, let's face it: there are no winners.Steak. Crab legs. Italian bread. Jalapeño potato chips. Cheese. Chocolate. Sour Patch Kids.I woke up the next day and decided it was time to start eating better and to take my fat ass to the gym, but I didn't really believe it would work. I'd been to many gyms, many times, and I'm not great at motivating myself (unless it's about eating candy--then I'm pretty unstoppable).The point is that I started to change my diet, and by the end of the month I found Mark and Lifestyles Fitness Personal Training. I liked Mark's manner, and I decided to go for it. There are some details that you don't need to know here about a gallbladder attack and surgery and stuff like that. Really all that did was slow me down. It did not stop me. Let me share with you what has changed from my intake in late February, to my test in early June:Waist: from 40" to 35.5"Weight: from 199.6 to 184.4Body fat: from 23.6% to 16.0%Lost: 18 lbs of fatGained: 3 lbs of muscleMy cardio is similarly off-the-charts improved. When I started working with Mark, Drew and Keith, I hated it and my pulse would climb to 160-170 in a hurry and it would take forever to go down. I had to do very little, because I couldn't do much.Today I did a full workout and while it was challenging, I loved the challenge. I still have a long way to go in terms of cardio health, and I'm not exactly a pinup model yet, but I'm moving in the right direction and I love that. All three trainers have their own styles, and I like them all very much. They keep things interesting. And they're all really nice guys who will give you the attention you need. And they'll help you with food! Suffice it to say I didn't get here eating Sour Patch Kids.I strongly recommend these guys. If you're ready for change, they can help! More...

Mark is a stellar trainer who tailors workouts to fit your specific goals and fitness levels.  He shows you how to do all exercises utilizing proper body mechanics so there is never a chance of injury. The exercise routines are constantly evolving so you never stagnate. Mark is also incredibly knowledgeable about nutrition and diet. He has distilled all of that data (so much of the  material out there is conflicting and inane) into coherent information applicable to your daily life. If you are ready for a positive change, Mark will provide the impetus and tools necessary to accomplish your objectives. More...

Q&As

The most fulfilling part of my work is helping to improve a client's every day quality of life. If I can change somebody's day for the better, that is beyond rewarding. I also just genuinely like people and the one-on-one aspect of training is very enjoyable. Connecting with a client and seeing their health improve through each session is priceless.

I have the unique expertise to construct individualized workouts that get muscles firing correctly in order to correct imbalances, increase flexibility and create a strong core while maintaining joint integrity, which is critical to proper alignment and good posture.
