Joe Fox and all involved at TrainSMART are a class act. Their understanding of exercise is excellent and they are always updating their knowledge by attending continuing education courses. They are truly life-long learners and unselfishly share what they learn with other health professionals and you as a client. They start with an evaluation that helps to determine your current functional status (i.e., where you move well and not so well). They will then move into developing an individualized exercise program that will improve not only your strength and flexibility but also the endurance of your core and extremity muscles. This will be transformed into a life style change and they will show you how to incorporate this program into your daily routine. When I have patients of mine that needs a personal trainer or are transferring from a rehab program, with a physical therapist, to a home or community based exercise program I recommend consulting with Joe Fox and his staff at TrainSMART. I have and will continue to recommend TrainSMART to my patients. Their philosophy and mine, as a Spine and Sports Medicine physician mesh well together. As an example when I explain to a patient why they need to avoid seated weight machines, as this will increase their disc pressure too much, I know that will be reinforced by Joe Fox and his staff. Everybody is on the same page. They are conveniently located downtown, in a great facility, with parking just across the street. I give my highest recommendation, without reservation, to Joe Fox and his staff at TrainSMART. Keep up the great work! Michael C. Geraci, Jr., MD PT - Spine and Sports Medicine
philosophies of fitness have varied widely, I have been quite impressed with the work being done at TrainSMART under the direction of Joe Fox. Beginning with a thorough assessment and evaluation, a program is then developed to meet the individuals goals while being mindful of that person's unique and specific strengths and limitations. Joe's approach to fitness is thoughtful and is grounded in the sound principles of movement. Once a strong foundation is built, Joe promotes progression in all aspects of your fitness with attention to detail and enthusiastic encouragement. His background is extensive and his knowledge base impressive both in its breadth and depth. I have found his approach to training refreshing and reassuring. Mindful movement toward your fitness goals is the experience at TrainSMART. Megan Farrell, MD Associate Medical Director Center for Hospice and Palliative Care of WNY

Joe and Brandon and the team at TrainSMART are amazing. I am walking better, feeling stronger and my over all health has increased dramatically. I have recommended TrainSmart and the team to several other folks. These folks are fantastic.
Joes expertise in fitness and nutrition has been a huge upgrade for my workouts and overall health. Understanding proper technique has lead to increased results with less chance for setbacks. His excitement for your well being is infectious! Thanks Joe!
Joe Fox is a fantastic personal trainer! He works hard to make sure you understand how little movements can make a big difference in completing your goals. Joe is a pleasant man to work with and his gym is very neat and clean. Thank Joe for all your help!
Joe is an amazing trainer and really can connect with every individual he coaches. He has helped me throughout my high school and college tennis career and has given me tools to help me with my athletic career for the rest of my life. I highly recommend TrainSMART.
Trainsmart has been by far the best investment I have ever made in my overall health and fitness. I can't believe how much progress I have made in my personal goals thanks to the motivating and extremely knowledgeable trainers. My only regret is that I didn't find them sooner.
After many years of chronic back issues this team completely changed my entire work out and stretching routine. Mainly because everything I was doing was wrong. That was October of 2016. 2 plus years later and I haven’t had a major back crisis since. Thank You Joe Fox and Team.
Joe and his staff are extremely knowledgeable and their progressive effort toward continuing their education is nothing shy of impressive. Having worked together, it's clear to see how compassionate Joe is toward his clients, their success and having a great time in the process!
Trainsmart is an amazing semi private gym! Trainsmart really focus on individual needs and will work on improving any limitations you may have in a safe manner. Each of the trainers will go the extra mile for you to make sure you are getting the most of each workout and improving.
Highly educated and Top trainers and health care providers in the area. Not only can they help get you in shape, they can help fix most orthopedic problems and help make sure they don't plague you forever. They have a unique approach to fitness and health. I fully endorse them!!!!!
I highly recommend Joe and his staff at Trainsmart. Joe presented a "Lunch 'n Learn" session to my entire team, focused on healthy lifestyle, exercise, and eating. It was very informative and helpful. He provided thoughtful analysis and fact-based information. It was a great session.
I went to Trainsmart as a skeptic, 2 1/2 years ago, even though I’m not the lean mean fighting machine I want to be I’m a believer! Joe and his team customize workouts to your body ability and goals. I work out and don’t hurt myself which I did for years. Try and see for yourself!
Joe is extremely professional and dedicated to making certain he is well-versed in the latest training methods and incorporating them into his client's programs. He took me "back to basics" and focused on core strengthening--results were visible and took my weekend warrior activities to the next level. Thanks Joe!
My experience at TrainSmart was very educational and life changing. Joe Fox, the owner of TrainSmart is very dedicated and passionate about his work and clients. This is the first place that I would recommend any spinal problems patient to try out before spending hundred of dollars on chiropractor and a workout facility.
Joe has fantastic energy. Expertise backed in the art and science of health, personal fitness goals, and feeling good! His presentation inspired our team to think more critically about how their excercise and diet habits effect their physical and mental performance. Whether we like it or not, this has real bottom line impact for business!
Joe Fox and his team at TrainSmart are awesome! Joe is very knowledgeable and passionate about what he does. He shares his knowledge with you and explains why you need to do certain exercises what the desired results are, and makes sure each one is properly executed. When training with Joe or any of his staff you feel like you are their only client.
Joe is without question the leader in fitness and training in Buffalo today. With a practical and personable approach, Joe has developed an incredibly satisfying fitness program for me, yielding both immediate and long-term results. I would (and have) recommend anyone looking to improve their quality of life, to start with Joe Fox.
The staff here are genuinely some of the smartest, most dedicated folks around. They’re not dedicated to just learning and refining their craft, but they’re dedicated to you. Joe, Brandon and the team are constantly doing things right - if you need a boost in your training, a step in the right direction, or guidance on how to start, you NEED to be here.
I met Joe Fox on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus a couple of years ago during a health fair. He really impressed me with his knowledge and dedication to learning all he could about the human body. He continually seeks the best way to move correctly and strengthen. He loves to educate his clients and provides complete individual treatment to each of us.
When working with Joe Fox, two things immediately stick out: 1. that he has a complete understanding of human anatomy and physiology and the means of improving the two, and 2. that he cares deeply about the people he works with, and the commitments he makes. TrainSMART is an obvious choice when looking for training in the Buffalo Area regardless of your training goals.
TrainSMART is the best gym environment I have ever experienced . Brandon and Joe are extremely knowledgeable and motivating trainers. Their commitment to safety and their client’s needs has empowered me to work hard and achieve physical fitness goals which I thought were beyond me. My progress and the fun, supportive atmosphere of the gym keeps me coming back consistently.
Joe Fox and all the trainer’s commitment to find the proper exercise, technique, and form to get every client out of pain is second to none. You can feel the personal commitment that they have for each and every person they train. I have been going there for 3 months now and would tell anyone with back pain or any kind of physical pain to give Train Smart a try, you won’t be sorry.
In having a close professional relationship with Joe and his team I have seen first hand how they conduct their business as well as his care for his clients. He truly gives the one on one care it takes to reach your goals and keeps you safe by perfecting your form. Clearly the place you want to go to better your function, improve quality of life, and reach your overall fitness goals!
My wife and I work with Joe multiple days a week. Joe has developed specific programs to address to both of our wants and needs as athletes. We've worked with many trainers over the years but Joe goes above and beyond with his knowledge of the body, resources and the effort he puts into working with us. We can only give Joe and TrainSMART the highest of recommendations!
Joe and the rest of the TrainSMART staff will help you achieve your personal fitness goals, no matter how simple or complex. Joe has the knowledge to tailor a program specifically to meet your needs, and to adjust the program to keep you challenged. You will see improvements in health and wellness and Joe will make it rewarding and fun in the process. I highly recommend Joe and the TrainSMART staff.
I was dealing with a shoulder injury for many years in my mid 20’s and heard about Brandon Mancuso through friends and decided to give him a shot. After just a few short visits with Brandon and some rehab exercises that he showed me to work on I’m between visits, I was feeling much, much better in no time at all! Very professional and one of the most knowledgeable healthcare professionals I have ever been around!!!
Joe has a personal knowledge base and a team that is second to none. For me they focused on designing the best possible program and also connected me to the area’s leading experts to ensure their program for my arthritic knees and hips was the best that was humanly possible. Thanks to Joe and his team I have avoided knee replacement surgery for not only the last two years but well into the foreseeable future! Thank you!
Joe is an extremely knowledgeable trainer who cares deeply about the health and well-being of all of his clients. His patience and support continue to keep me on track with my fitness and life goals and I am thrilled with the results I've attained so far. I highly recommend Joe and his staff to anyone who is looking for a positive and effective program to improve their overall physical and mental well being!
TrainSMART has professional and friendly staff that has their client's physical limitations and goals in mind at all times. Joe, Brandon and Jennifer all care about their client. They were flexible with my scheduling needs. Brandon adjusted my workout routine as needed to continue to challenge me physically all while considering my limitations with my left knee. I highly recommend trainSMART for semi private yet individualized training.
Joe Fox and his staff are men of their word. If you have pain anywhere and you been told theirs nothing that you can do to get out if it or that you’ll need an invasive procedure, look no further than TrainSmart. Joe and his staff are extremely knowledgable and are THE BEST personal trainers in WNY. If you have any health, fitness, or improving your quality of life goals TrainSmart is the place to get the help you need to get it done.
TrainSMART offers a level of one-on-one training that would be very hard to match at a "big-box" gym. Joe Fox uses his experience and expert knowledge of physiology and bio-mechanics to assess individual strengths and weaknesses and prescribe a personalized exercise program. The focus is on quality, not quantity, of movement; not just building muscle but also addressing core strength issues and preventing injury. I look forward to working with Joe again!
I have trained at many different personal training gyms and always pushed myself to muscle failure . As a former athlete this has lead to lower back pain and stiffness along with a limited range of motion. Since training at TrainSmart , I have regained my core strength , improved my balance , and best if all no long recovery time after work outs. Joe Fox and team are the most qualified and efficient team to and gain strength and healthy way of getting results.
Last year I experienced another bout of back pain and had used all of my physical therapy sessions that insurance covered. My physical therapist recommended TrainSMART due to their highly skilled staff and reported results. I was so pleased with my experience at trainSMART. Not only did my back pain disappear within weeks I was also stronger and more confident. Joe, Brandon and the entire staff are extremely knowledgeable. I will definitely return to them with confidence.
I searched for a place to train for a long while before settling on TrainSMART and I don't think I could've made a better pick. I didn't really have much gym experience before coming to TrainSMART but that was no issue with them. When it came to creating a program that met my goals and giving me the tools and guidance to get there, they were amazing. If you're on the fence I'd say sit down with Joe or Brandon and you'll quickly realize what a great operation they have running.
Remember your program you wrote for me? Joe’s workout for back and ribs Yeah Joe, I still have your hand written workout you made when you came down to Florida few years ago. I still use it almost every day (six (6) times a week. I feel it keeps me running smooth. I attribute the lessening my back problems, to the point of elevating the problem, to your training program and work outs. Remember Joe’s workout for back and abs: Stretches Cardio AB Exercises God Bless Jack
I have been working with Joe and Brandon from TrainSMART for the past several years on the rehabilitation of a individual currently with a Traumatic Btain Injury (TBI). They developed a customized program to address physical coordination and balance retraining. The results have been a dramatic increase in the quality of movement and stability to the individual. The progress continuues to be steady and consistent thanks to the efforts of Joe and Brandon.
I've been training with Joe Fox for almost 4 months, and I am thrilled with the progress that I've made! I am now stronger, toned and most importantly, my run times have improved! Joe designed a workout for me that specifically targets the areas where I need work to reach my fitness goals. I highly recommend working with Joe, especially if you have a goal that you are trying to reach. He is a true professional and he has a wealth of knowledge to share. And he's a lot of fun to train with!
I was extremely impressed with TrainSmart's trainers. I have been dealing with a 20 year shoulder injury that held me back from my full potential in any type of physical work or exercise. Within two or three sessions the staff zeroed in on the exact location of the injury, targeted it with therapeutic and strengthening movements which helped and that I still use on my own to this day. They are the most skilled staff in training and rehabilitation that I have been to and I worked with several over 20 years
Owner, Joe Fox, is extremely personable, professional, and knowledgable. He will give you the attention and expertise necessary to reach your goals quickly and effectively. The gym space is small, but that's not necessarily a downside. I never knew how much could be done with so little until I met Joe at TrainSMART. He will teach you the tools you need to succeed, and coming from a seasoned athlete who has had several different trainers over the years, this is THE place to go in Buffalo!
I’ve been working with the TrainSmart team for six months now both on the chiropractic side and the training side. I came in with major lower back pain due to an accident. I’d wake up in pain and with limited mobility every day. I’m happy to say that they get results. I now get up pain free most days, I am much stronger, and my mobility has improved. I can do activities I could no longer do before. We only get one body and I’m psyched to have the TrainSmart team helping me take care of mine.
TrainSmart is, in my humble opinion, the best personal fitness center in Western NY. Period. The trainers at TrainSmart are top notch: I can not say enough positive things about Joe Fox! Joe is the most knowledgeable, passionate, enthusiastic trainer I have ever worked with. His degree of patience is extraordinary, and his ability to communicate and emphasize correct form is truly REMARKABLE. I look forward to all of my workouts at TrainSmart! Workouts are safe, FUN, challenging, and make fitness easy to adhere.
Joe Fox team at Train Smart is second to none! Whether your looking to get in shape, lose some excess Buffalo Wings and beer weight, feel better getting out of bed in the morning, stand upright and just age better! Joe’s team will work with you with patience, offer suggestions and hints to help you progress torwards your goals all in a safe, friendly and fun atmosphere! I would highly recommend this business if any of these goals are yours, your goals are within reach at Train Smart! Gene Szerbiak Print2Web, LLC Buffalo, NY
Going to TrainSmart is one of the best fitness decisions I have made. The gym has a welcoming and friendly atmosphere and everyone on the TrainSmart staff are both professional and knowledgeable, with a willingness to share their knowledge with you. I was given my own personalized fitness routine designed for my specific fitness goals and needs which changed as trainers continually assessed my fitness level. I found these workouts to be challenging and effective. Also, the lessons I have learned about proper body movement are invaluable.
Joe Fox is truly amazing to work with. For the past two years i have worked with Joe Fox to better my health and my life. Joe is not only very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about what he does, he is also very friendly and manages the workout around you and what you are capable of. His methods have focused my workouts on preforming exercises i may have never even thought of doing on my own that have benefited me in more ways than one. Without a doubt i would highly recommend Joe to anyone looking for great one on one personal training.
I started working out with Joe Fox from TrainSMART in the fall of 2012. I have found Joe to be very knowledgeable, motivating, and effective. His workout routines are evidence based and get results. Since starting with Joe my posture has improved, I have more flexibility, my lean body mass has increased, and most importantly for me, I no longer experience back pain. I have worked out with other trainers and never got the results I was looking for, I would highly recommend Joe Fox at TrainSMART. Sincerely, Michele LeVine ANP at Sleep Medicine of WNY
Joe, Brandon and the staff at Trainsmart are extremely knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. They really care about their clients and work hard addressing the key issues holding them back or causing them pain. I have had many musculoskeletal issues and they have gotten me to a place where I feel like I am still getting a great workout without the pain I have felt in the past. They tailor the workouts from person to person, which is great since everyone’s body and tolerance for certain movement patterns are different. I highly recommend them!
I have known Joe since High School, and his enthusiasm and passion for fitness dates all the way back to those days. When I decided I wanted to take my training to the next level, Joe was the 1st person I thought of. He did not disappoint!!! Joe helped me to create a personal routine that not only allowed me to reach my goals, but he did it in a way the also fit with my busy business travel lifestyle. So from South Africa, Mexico, New Zealand and even right here in Western New York, I am able to workout knowing I am improving my total body. Thanks Joe!!
To Whom It May Concern,
I started working out with Joe Fox from TrainSMART in the fall of 2012. I have found Joe to be very knowledgeable, motivating, and most of all effective. His workout routines are evidence based and get results! Since starting with Joe my posture has improved, I have more flexibility, my lean body mass has increased, and most importantly for me, I no longer experience low back pain. I have worked out with other trainers and never got any results, I would highly recommend TrainSMART.
I really enjoy the training experience at TrainSMART. For the first time, ever, I am regularly working out. They are very careful to protect the lower back and they promote better mobility and flexibility along with core strengthening. I move better and feel better. They also provide advice for eating well and better habits. The trainers are wonderful. They are genuinely pleasant and nice people. I highly recommend TrainSMART. There's no shortcuts to better health, but if you stick to it and put in the sweat and time, these guys can guide you to a better you.
The most mundane and oftentimes skipped exercises and stretches for me, like planks, come alive under Joe and Brandon’s tutelage. Not only do they teach the proper form, but you learn all of the reasons why the exercise is right for you and the benefits you will reap from your hard work due to the enormous breadth of knowledge possessed by the trainers at TrainSMART. Now these so-called “boring” exercises become my favorite activities in the gym as I know they will, without a doubt, help me achieve the fitness goals that I have set for myself.
I've been working out at TrainSmart for the past 2 months. Joe, Brandon and Matt do an amazing job. They make a customized workout plan for you based on your goals. Mine has already been changed several times as I have progressed. They do a great job of watching everything you do to teach proper form, and make sure the right muscles are firing. Most importantly, I believe they perfectly balance the art of challenging you without ever giving you more weight than you can handle and/or risking injury. I can't recommend the TrainSMART team enough. They really care.
Joe, Brandon and the rest of the team are all incredibly knowledgeable with an integrated approach to personal training which really works. I trained with this group in preparation for a black belt test and feel the training I received from TS was instrumental in achieving the overall conditioning I needed for that test (shout out to Tim on this one as well, ty Tim!!). They differentiate themselves from other personal training groups in many ways technically which I really enjoyed. Above ALL of that, this team really cares. Thanks guys for a needed great gym in Buffalo!!
I attended "Sitting on a Time Bomb - What Happens When We Sit & What Can We Do About It" given by Joe Fox. It was a mini MBA on positive backcare, sitting and health. Joe has a commanding knowledge of the subject matter and lead the group through pragmatic, simple and exceedingly helpful methods of improving your physical health. His proven experience, and knowledge, along with engaging style, relayed nuggets of information and immediately useful concepts to help me improve my lifestyle. The hour long seminar was certainly worth the time - because his suggestions worked. Thank you Joe!
I have been working with Joe for some time now and his process is very thorough. His methods are very specific to your individual needs and allows you to progress at the appropriate speed for your current health and fitness. By building the right foundation I have been able to made significant strides in improving my overall health (Flexibility, Strength and Cardio Fitness). Joe was also able to help me correct an injury I didn't even know had occurred and included its treatment in my overall program. This could have gotten significantly worse if Joe had not found it.
I was at Buffalo for a month due to work and getting to know TrainSMART was the best decision I made! I suffer a constant shoulder and neck stiffness due to my occupation and Joe and his team was so helpful teaching me how to relieve my pain. I mostly worked with Matt, Tim, and Andrew but all the trainers are simply amazing. They are very professional and knowledgeable about the exercises they teach and they taught me not only how to use my body but also how to protect them. My shoulder feels better than ever and I just wish I had more time with TrainSMART. Thank you so much for all your help!
I am a physician 3 months post lumber fusion. Great place for rehab. Knowledgeable caring staff who really know their stuff. Flexibility and strength have increased dramatically and I am returning to work. The place is light years ahead of where I have been in the past. I recommend them without reservation.....that was my original post....18 months later its even better...playing golf and tennis again....lighter stronger and I am enjoying my life all which would not have been possible without Joe and Brandon...simply, give them a try you will be pleasantly surprised....great energy and expertise...
Joe Fox is a consummate professional. He eliminated my back pain in the first 2 to 3 weeks. I have increased my core strength, gained flexibility and improved functional movement. I look better and feel better. One reason I like Joe as a personal trainer is because he takes time to show you the exercise, explains why it is important and helps you learn the movement properly. He is patient and helpful. My stress level is always lower when I leave then when I arrived at his gym. Every week it is a fresh new work out and it never gets monotonous or boring.
The trainers at TrainSMART are helping me recover from lower back disc herniations when my doctor told me surgery was my only option. They have a unique model of personal training, with highly qualified staff members comprised of physical therapists, chiropractors, and personal trainers. They offer something that I couldn't find elsewhere... a smart blend of physical therapy and personal training with qualified staff, smart, personalized programming, with slow, smart progression and form correction. Can't recommend them highly enough! They have helped me improve my quality of life, and for that I am forever grateful.
I was recommended to Joe Fox by my brother Mark who had been working with Joe for over a year. Since I recently experienced back and hip surgery I was looking for the right trainer to assist with rehabilitation and core strengthening. Joe's personal attention to my condition and necessary training has been outstanding. His programs are designed to be thorough yet cautious by developing the correct program for long term benefit. Joe's passion for training excellence and commitment to ongoing improvement was obvious from the start. I would highly recommend Joe to those seeking professional training expertise and guidance.
Joe, Brandon, and their team are some of the most knowledgable and caring personal training/ medical wellness group I have had the pleasure to work with. As a Physical Therapist, I often worry about who to collaborate with and who to send clients to when they need a different level of care or to focus on their training/wellness goals. However, I have no doubts when collaborating with the TrainSMART team or sending clients to them, because I know that this is a group of caring, honest, and very knowledgeable individuals. It is very easy for me to give them a 5 star review and hope that my review can help someone reach them!
It is with great pleasure that I am writing this letter to recommend Joe Fox, owner of TrainSMART. He is one of the most incredible individuals that I have ever met. His unlimited passion, expertise and knowledge is extraordinary. His search for perfection and his motivation to be the best personal trainer is astounding. He has literally changed my life. He worked in tandem with my doctor and physical therapist to create a complete customized program for me. I have trained with many individuals and have been associated with excellent health care professionals but I have never been so profoundly affected by anyone like Joe Fox.
I turned to TrainSMART to assist me with weight loss and improved cardio vascular fitness. I recently completed an 18 week (36 session) program with Brandon. I have a 30 year history of weight training but was amazed at the approach that TrainSMART took. Brandon taught me the importance of core fitness and also created a unique regiment that changed frequently and constantly challenged me. I felt that the approach was more about long term fitness vs. a quick fix. The end result was a 4 inch reduction in my mid section and a new approach to fitness that is sustainable. I highly recommend Brandon and TrainSMART to assist you with your fitness goals.
Working with Brandon and Joe was an absolute pleasure. Their knowledge in personal training is astounding! They perform an initial screen to evaluate your weaknesses and limitations (unlike many other gyms). Using that screen, they construct an individualized workout plan to work on such weaknesses. I noticed a significant improvement in my triathlon workouts such as staying in the aero position on the bike, improved range of motion and mobility of my shoulders when swimming, and more efficient running stride while running. Would highly recommend to anybody who wants to work on more functional movement and improve stability and mobility of the joints.
I was an Intern at train smart over the summer and I was able to see first hand the hard work, dedication, and passion that Joe Fox and his team put into helping see that their clients reach their goals. It’s clearly not about making money for them, they want to see people succeed and that was awesome to see! I was able to learn so much from them about what it really means to be in charge of someone’s health and wellness and helping them reach their goals! I’m so thankful for the opportunity I had there this summer it was such a blessing to work along Godly men that wanted nothing more than to help people feel good and look great through following trainSMARTs system!
TrainSMART is truly a unique environment built by the most compassionate and skilled doctors and therapists in town! Making the decision to become a client was one the best decisions I have ever made for my overall health. The doctors and trainers work together to design customize programs to facilitate recovery from injury with progression steps to gain and improve strengthen and endurance. I finally believe I will overcome the challenges I've faced from low back pain and other injuries in order to maintain a healthy active lifestyle. In addition, the team whole heartily cares about clients and it shows in the work they do. I love this gym and get excited for every session I spend in the facility!
TrainSMART has given me the confidence to go above and beyond what I thought were my limits. It is so true ... if you think you can't ... you can't. My body is starting to transform from all the hard work. I have called Joe Fox over a period of years talking to him about my spine issues and each time I would call he would say he can help me. My fear of hurting myself kept me from going. I called again in April and decided to finally meet with him. His energy, positive attitude, his knowledge and professionalism convinced me that I was exactly where I needed to be. Joe said, "We change lives." Joe and his Team have changed my life. I can't say enough about TrainSMART. All I can say is, don't think about it...just do it!
Joe Fox from Trainsmart Personal Fitness was at the office I work at, for a nutrition talk in January 2019. Joe's presentation was very informative and was a good fit for those that are already on the road to eating healthy and for those of us that are trying to get on that road! I have been to other seminars etc, and often times the speakers make you feel like a total failure, Joe was extremely encouraging and he made sure he talked to everyone about how to make getting healthy as a way of life, not a diet, and how the small changes he suggested were a sustainable way to start for everyone to get on a healthy path!. We will be having Joe come back again for additional speaking engagements and I am looking forward to them. Thanks Joe Fox
Joe Fox, Brandon Mancuso and the entire team at TrainSMART are very knowledgable and extremely professional. They create an easy going and friendly environment ideal for a fun work out. Their attention to detail and constant encouragement is one of the many reasons as to why I look forward to going to my classes at TrainSMART. Before I began training with them in January 2018, I had started to gain more weight than ever before. I wanted to change. The expert team at TrainSMART put together a program for the goals I wanted to achieve and within a few months I saw significant weight loss and noticeable muscle tone. In addition to this, my posture improved and my upper back problems were significantly reduced. I am eager to continue training with them.
Joe recently came in to our office conduct a wellness seminar for our employees titled “Sitting on a Time Bomb” regarding lower back health core endurance. Joe’s hour-long presentation covered a multitude of topics ranging from the small activities we do daily that aggravate our lower backs to how we can strengthen our core to be able to withstand the every-day tasks we simply cannot avoid. Joe’s discussion was highly interactive and very informative! The best part of the presentation was that Joe actually took the time to demonstrate a few simple stretches and exercises one can do to strengthen the core! This really was a great presentation that our employees enjoyed!
Thanks Joe! Top qualities: Personable, Expert, Creative
I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Brandon and Joe at train smart. They are extremely knowledgeable, and are not shy about sharing that knowledge so you can fully understand what you are doing and why. Some of the exercises are unorthodox, but that's what makes them special! When asked what my goals were when I came, I replied with longevity in my sports without injury. I am a triathlete, and marathoner. I've struggled with injury in the past. I'm not built like athletes you commonly associate with either sport. I've had weight struggles for most my adult life. By working with them I experienced a great increase in the muscle tone in my core, where I hold most my weight. My performance in my sports has vastly improved as well.
TrainSMART Personal Fitness is an incredible organization that takes personal training to a whole new level. Joe Fox and Dr. Brandon Mancuso, DC are dedicated professionals that care deeply about their client's and focus on helping you achieve the best quality of life possible by "moving well". They are never about "pumping iron" and "running endless miles" on a treadmill, but instead take the time to teach you the proper way to move. Their practice focuses on functional movement and takes into consideration everything from how you breathe to the importance of making the slightest corrections to accomplish each repetition in perfect form. As a satisfied client that has seen remarkable personal results, I recommend them without hesitation.
After a back injury and surgery, I was struggling to find a place to train hard without fear of reinjuring myself. I have worked out at several fitness clubs and with multiple personal trainers in the Buffalo area, and I knew I needed trainers with more expertise who would closely monitor my workouts and progress. I am so thankful I found TrainSMART. TrainSMART has the most competent, knowledgeable trainers I have ever worked with. I have been working out here for a little over a year and in addition to regaining my strength, my back pain has steadily decreased. The TrainSMART team gives their clients the personal attention and instruction that is frustratingly absent at so many gyms. Their dedication to their clients in deeply impressive and I cannot thank them enough for their help in my recovery!
I am fortunate to have known Joe Fox for a couple years. We were classmates in the UB Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership CORE program. He is a driven individual, with an aptitude for analyzing problems and devising solutions. When Joe opened TrainSmart, I took the opportunity to work with him to assess my fitness level, and to have him devise a regimen for improving my problem areas -- regaining flexibility and increasing core strength. Joe provided me with a straightforward evaluation and wonderful training program that hit on the problem areas and beyond. I found his approach to fitness to coincide with my own -- focusing on overall health, rather than just trying to build mass or lose weight. It was comforting. I highly recommend Joe Fox as both a personal trainer and as a problem solver. He is a unique individual.
When I first moved into Buffalo I researched a few gyms before making a decision to commit to TrainSMART. My routine traditionally included working out with heavy weights, aerobics, spinning and running. What intrigued me the most about TrainSMART is their unique approach to fitness. Less reps with proper form provides a greater benefit over many reps with bad form. Body weight workouts, lighter weight workouts and overall functional fitness moves while concentrating on alignment is a superior challenge. Ultimately it is an effective way to change up a workout routine and cross train. Joe and his staff are very knowledgeable and truly care about helping you be the best you can be. I'd highly recommend anyone who is looking to truly better themselves and see progress to have a conversation with them and learn how they can help you.
I’ve been working out at Trainsmart for almost a year now. When I started working out here I had knee pain preventing me from doing much. The amazing trainers at Trainsmart have helped me get back to an active lifestyle and have taught me so much. As someone who has been active for most of my life, I was shocked at how little I knew about proper form and correct technique. Trainsmart has helped me become stronger than I’ve ever been and more confident in my abilities. Triansmart has a unique approach to fitness. They spend time creating a personalized fitness program that caters to your physical needs. There are never more than 4-5 other people training at the same time as you which allows plenty of attention from the trainer. Whether you have an injury limiting you or you’re just looking for a more personalized workout, Trainsmart can help!
I've been working out with Brandon Mancuso and Joe Fox at TrainSmart for almost a year. As someone who is a bit past middle age (!) my initial goals were different than a lot of people who work out to look good or lose weight. My goals were to become more flexible, gain strength and reduce the chronic low back pain I've had for years. I am proud to say I met those goals and feel great (except if I miss a session or two, then my back pain flairs up again...but that's due to my own laziness)! Brandon and Joe have helped me to achieve more fitness than I thought possible for someone with my level of back pain. Brandon and Joe offer excellent service overall but most importantly they are HIGHLY qualified to do what they do. I greatly respect the TrainSmart team and recommend them without reservation. Give them a call...you won't regret it!
Joe Fox and his partner Brandon Mancuso are fabulous trainers. They are professional and extremely well educated in body mechanics and ways to increase your metabolism. Both are very dedicated to making your workout personal and continually demonstrate and observe exercises for proper form and to avoid injury. Joe and Brandon are sincere in wanting the best results for their clients and take a truly personal approach to work out sessions. I have been with TrainSmart for almost 1 year, and both trainers have never hesitated to show me a modification to any exercise that could potentially cause injury or discomfort, yet both have found ways to continue to challenge me and ensure I'm getting the most out of my sessions. I would highly recommend either trainer with total confidence for anyone looking to step up their exercise efforts, or for anyone who is just beginning.
We’ve had the true privilege of working with Joe Fox and his staff at TrainSmart over the past year. During that time, we’ve experienced Joe’s passion and skillset for personal training that is of the utmost quality. Joe and his team work with a comprehensive group of medical professionals in the area to help collaborate on the best interventions for every single client. Above all, Joe is one of the most professional and compassionate personal trainers that we have ever worked with. He is up to date on the latest techniques and research to achieve the best outcome while making it fun and enjoyable for his clients. Joe establishes a professional connection with each client and supports them with his genuine caring demeanor.
We trust and respect Joe Fox at TrainSmart and look forward to continuing to serve the WNY community in health and wellness.
INVEST IN YOUR HEALTH. I have been working with Joe and Brandon at TrainSMART for a few months now and I can honestly say that I've never had such a comprehensive and personalized workout program. I have not only been training my body, but also my mind. I have learned the importance of maintaining a neutral spine throughout my entire workout and how certain muscle groups work for stability, while others work for mobility. I continue to grow stronger steadily, without experiencing overwhelming soreness, because my program is designed to make me work hard without over-training. I have tried a wide variety of workout programs including p90x, yoga, weightlifting, running, and circuit training; but my body has never felt better than it does now. Joe is a great motivator with a great sense of humor that helps get you through each workout. 10/10 would recommend.
I have been working with Brandon for a few months now, and I think Trainsmart is a really great facility. The philosophy is all about health, and making sure you are being trained correctly, with a strong emphasis on the core and corrective movements. I have never been consistent in working out, but with Brandon, I have been encouraged to be consistent and I see steady improvement in both my mobility and strength. The workouts are creative and varied, and continuously challenging!
Brandon is all about general health, getting enough sleep, drinking more water, eating better - and he constantly includes practical tips to incorporate into the everyday. They are also super-flexible with times, which is a huge bonus when work or other commitments get in the way. Brandon goes out of his way to make sure you can get your workout in! I really couldn't recommend Brandon more highly!
I have had the pleasure to work with Joe Fox and Dr Brandon Mancuso throughout this past year. I am SO pleased to have found personal trainers in the Downtown Buffalo area that I can refer patients to once they have successfully completed their physical therapy. Joe and Brandon truly understand injury and how to avoid a relapse in injury. They have attended many of the same continuing education courses that I have which allows us to be on the same page in the treatment of our patients / clients. I truly trust Joe and Brandon for the aftercare of my patients as I am confident that they will take the patients to the next step in their recovery. The also provide top notch customer service, and offer a variety of health and wellness at their center. I highly recommend TrainSmart for anyone looking to safely engage in improving their health and wellness! Dr. Rebecca L. Korosi, PT, DPT, ATC
When my doctor made his assessment and referral to meet Joe Fox, I had reservations. Having suffered from sciatica down the right side of my body for years due to a slipped vertebrae, I didn’t think I was going to be able to make it through the first week to make any progress. The pain was near unbearable, but I had to think my doctor knew what he was doing. So I made a vow to stick things out and over a year later I’m still with TrainSMART. I learned that their programs are customized to each client based on their specific needs and goals and I absolutely love that. I love how knowledgeable the staff is, in addition to their ability to address any question or concern without hesitation. The passion and positivity I feel also contributed to my being near pain free for over 6 months now. These are skills that are priceless. I continue to get stronger and fitter and owe a lot of it to TrainSMART. Truly an amazing group of professionals!
TrainSMART lives up to it's name. If you are looking for a group of fitness professionals who understand how to take your fitness to the next level, in a manner that is safe, individualistic, goal-oriented, and pain free, then this is your place. I came to TrainSMART to get back into shape after major shoulder surgery, and after experiencing their fitness program, there is no group of experts in Western New York, if not the entire state that I would trust more for my physical health. The staff at TrainSMART made me feel safe, confident, and hopeful, and I got the results that I came for. I recommend the TrainSMART team to anyone not only wanting to achieve ideal levels of fitness, but also anyone wanting to learn what "smart" fitness is. The knowledge they will impart on you, is the kind of knowledge that will stick with you for a lifetime... therefore gifting you the ability to feel in empowered in your own body, and it's strength, every single day.
Transmart's instruction and training program has been “LIFE CHANGING” for both my wife and I. Joe and Brandon allowed us to regain control of our lives with respect to the level of our physical fitness. What first started as an idea to try something different (and to to try and lose some weight during the process) has morphed into a new healthy life style that now has us asking how far can we take this journey. Maybe I do want to do “Tough Mudders" next year or start skiing agian? Last month my wife and I completed a tree top obstacle course. The point is we now have the hope of doing physical activity that only 5 months ago would have been ridiculous to think about. Personally, I'm seeing body weights that I have not seen in 25 years, that's significant for me! The interesting thing is that while I continue to lose inches I don't feel thin, but rather---I feel strong and confident---- I feel in shape for the first time in 30 years!!! Thanks again TrainSMART
I highly recommend Joe Fox and TrainSMART Buffalo to anyone wanting to improve their fitness level, but also, their overall well-being. Joe has demonstrated his passion for improving people’s health for many years, and with TrainSMART Buffalo he does this on many levels. Naturally, there are exercises and routines, but the TrainSMART approach incorporates a lot more. They work on the whole person and all aspects of wellness, which means proper (smart) techniques to maximize results and minimize potential of injury; a unique inter-disciplinary mix of training modes, therapies, and counseling; and seminars to broaden and deepen students’ awareness of important issues and “how the pieces fit together”. You need to spend only a few minutes with Joe to see his level of commitment and his command of the subject matter. Anyone who is interested in living well, including feeling and looking better, would do well to utilize Joe’s services. Mike Elkan Account Executive Time Warner Cable Business Class
I don't normally write detailed reviews but I think these guys earned one. My 30th birthday present to myself was to invest in my health and fitness. I trained at TrainSMART for two months in May+June and I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a personal trainer; from the inexperienced beginner to the fitness enthusiast who is looking to avoid injury. My goal was to become stronger without risking injuring myself as the weights got heavier and also to lower my body fat percentage. Both goals achieved as evidenced by my pre and post measurements. The trainers were very knowledgeable and extremely helpful (mostly trained with Brandon and Andrew). They want you to achieve your full potential and have long term results. They provide constant encouragement and support as well as a friendly environment. They tailor and adjust your workout plan according to your baseline, progress and any concerns you may have as you go and on the spot! Personally, I would train with them longer but my budget and lifestyle (travel) do not allow it for now.
Joe had an in house training called Core Training 101 which was excellent. I learned more in this one training than I did my entire last semester that I had in college. Everything that I had learned from this training had challenged what i had known about the core already and how basically a majority of my workout when I go to the gym is not good for me in the long run and needs to be revised. One big concept that I had taken home for myself was what I had learned about the abdominal. The purpose of the abdominal is to resist motion. However, more often than not, when we see people in the gym, the exercises they do, they do with the intent of creating motion even though the abs are more for anti rotation and to prevent one from going into lumbar over extensions as an example. So Joe and his team are excellent at making sure the clients achieve their goals while at the same time making sure to correct deficiencies, and their exercises all have evidence based practice behind them from some of the leaders in functional strength training and safe back training.
Meticulous attention to detail and focus on functional strength/stability greatly sets TrainSMART apart from the rest of the fitness industry. If you're looking for a place to just focus on getting huge or that shredded beach body; this is not the place... But if you are looking for a clean, private facility with educated professionals that will take a real interest in your health and well-being, then you will absolutely love it here. My personal experience, well, for years I have struggled with chronic low back pain. I was medically discharged from the military and had been taking a myriad of medications trying to manage my pain. After just 2 weeks working with Joe and Brandon, I was off all pain medication. After 5 weeks, my back is pain free and we're working on SAFELY progressing me to a program where I can regain my strength and get back to the things I enjoy most. I honestly believe that if I had met Joe Fox 4 years ago I would still be in the Army today. These people are masters of their craft. They love what they do, and I know they can help you too!
TrainSMART is not cookie-cutter. Cookie cutter is everywhere else. Just not here. I’ve worked out with most of the trainers at TrainSMART , but mostly with Joe himself. I can honestly say that Joe takes a personal interest in who I am and what MY needs and goals are. His enthusiasm and his interest in you as a person and in you achieving the goals you set for yourself- is really beyond the dollar that you pay him. Joe inspires me in so many ways. Business is always all about making money, but Joe values caliber and integrity more than he values the almighty dollar. I can honestly say that. I doubt if I ever have or ever will meet trainers and affiliates even remotely close to Joe and his gang. They are the best bang for your buck fitness wise and I expect to squat, rock and roll and shimmy well into my 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, maybe more (who knows?) - if Joe has anything to do with it. And for the gift of strength, and mobility, delivered with the uniqueness of their truly client centered style, I am unabashedly grateful and indebted. Priya P, PhD.
I’ve been working out with Brandon Mancuso for 7 months. Before this my wife and I went to Bally’s for a year or so, without a trainer, and we eventually got bored with the same machines all the time. This has not been a problem with TrainSMART. Their workouts focus on multiple coordinated muscle groups at the same time. They mostly use suspension and resistance training, which allows for a highly customizable, personal and diverse exercise program. We’ve never been bored by exercise routine. Their facility is also conveniently located right in the middle of medical campus in downtown Buffalo. Brandon is very approachable and is an exceptional fitness trainer. We’ve tried a couple of trainers at other gyms in the past, and have never stuck with it for long. Brandon has been the exception. On top of his experience as a trainer, he also has a Doctor of chiropractic, so he’s been able to pay attention to potential problems and help avoid injuries. Overall I highly recommend both Brandon and TrainSMART as an alternative to the standard gym routine.
No More Lower Back Pain! I have worked with a number of personal trainers in Buffalo, NY and I believe Joe Fox from TrainSMART Personal Fitness is by far the best! I was overweight, had no energy, chronic low back pain, and felt physically in a rut. I felt like I was going to the gym and wandering without direction. I lost more than 40 lbs in 6 months and just feel great! My low back pain is gone! Joe taught me how to build my core endurance and stabilize my spine first before running me through exercises. I learned more from Joe in my first few sessions than I did in years with several other personal trainers. It's actually scary how many personal trainers in Buffalo are just not educated and don't know how the body works. Many give terrible nutrition advice and actually have taught me exercises that were detrimental and made my low back pain worse. Joe Fox is the best Personal Trainer in Buffalo NY that I have ever worked with! I can highly recommend Joe Fox and TrainSMART to anyone looking for a professional Personal Trainer in Buffalo NY.
I personally think TrainSmart is a one of those rare "training" facilities that address the problems insurance-based physical therapy cannot manage due to the restrictions on the American healthcare system. As a competing athlete, I've faced my fair share of bodily discomfort and injuries, going to 5 physical therapy places that offer cold pack, hot pack, electrode therapy, acupuncture, and massage as modalities, and very cookie cutter exercise prescriptions that only have served in temporarily reducing pain, not curing the root. In the short month I have been attending, I've had reduction in symptoms of pain that are permanent, and have increased my athletic performance from through a method of training the fundamentals that are neglected in most strength and conditioning coaches I have trained under to this day. Joe Fox and Brandon Mancuso are excellent rehab specialists that are passionate at what they do, and are life long learners, and work with an extensive network of capable MDs and Physical Therapists to thoroughly treat patients. I highly recommend TrainSmart whether it be for weight-loss, rehabilitation, and to improve athletic performance.
TrainSMART personal fitness is an organization that approaches the idea of personal training a very unique way. They start you off with an FMS assessment, which helps them recognize movement patterns that would support your activities of daily living and allowing the personal trainers, physical therapist and chiropractor to make programming decisions with precision and purpose. TrainSMART emphasizes the importance of performing the exercises the right way while remaining safe and pain free. The trainers pay so much attention to the very little details such as the importance of proper diaphragmatic breathing and proper foot contact. They are all genuinely interested in you walking out of there looking, but most importantly feeling better. I personally have only been training there for about a month and I already feel so much stronger and I know for a fact that I have so much more progress to make with the encouragement and feedback I receive from the TrainSMART team. If you are in search of a fitness center that is concerned with your personal problems such as low back pain, shoulder immobility, poor core strength and so on, TrainSMART will provide you an extremely knowledgeable team that will help you achieve your goals. Thank you TrainSMART for your hardwork!
Joe and his phenomenal team of trainers are the most caring, experienced, and knowledgeable group of people I’ve ever had the pleasure of training with. Being a personal trainer myself one day and an avid gym-goer, I can easily recognize that their attitude and techniques are far superior to those of fitness trainers that populate the franchise-gym atmosphere. They genuinely care about you as a person, not as a “customer.” They formulate a workout plan that is customized to YOUR body, challenging you just enough while focusing on enhancing your neuromuscular connections before advancing to heavier/more complex exercises. They do it right, taking into account your specific goals while progressing you through stages of your regimen to keep you safe from injury. I came here because I’ve noticed I have developed some musculoskeletal imbalances over the years. That combined with overtraining with heavy weights have caused discomfort in my knees, hips, low back, and biceps. After running me through a fitness test Joe and his crew put together a workout for me and have been constantly revising as they closely analyze and monitor my movements and feedback. I am beyond excited to be working with these people and I highly advise anyone looking for legitimate personal training to give Joe Fox and his outstanding team a shot at helping you achieve your goals!
I’ve been working out at trainSmart for the past 2 years. I’ve found that all team members work ethics to be highly above my expectations. Joe has created a very modernized gym facility. Before beginning working at trainSmart they accessed my movement patterns & limitations. They wrote up a personalized workout program tailored to my needs. Along the way modifications were made accordingly to my capability. Joe Fox & his team are highly knowledgeable, encouraging & compassionate about their clients. The training team pushes me to a point where I wouldn’t go on my own. Being apart of trainSmart has changed both my mental & physical approach to positive mind, body & wellness techniques. Matt Veronica DPT, is a Physical Therapist with the team & also a part of MoveWell 1:1 Physical Therapy. I had a shoulder replacement in May of this year & did my rehab here, working on mobility & strength training step by step. I was truly amazed at how quickly I recovered as was my surgeon. My shoulder is pain free & stronger than ever...thank you Matt for your expertise. TrainSmart also has a chiropractor, Dr. Brandon Mancuso, DC., also a personal trainer. To me it’s a one stop facility that helps to correct the many facets of your body. Joe has mentored many, whom are now very sought out “EXPERTS” in the field. They also have a diverse range of clients both by age & profession’s. TrainSmart has a very inviting facility & I’ve never been happier!!
This place is THE REAL DEAL. Joe Fox has passionately accumulated YEARS of knowledge and experience to bring TrainSMART to life and it is literally changing lives for the better every single day. If we take good care of our bodies, our bodies will reciprocate. Our health is undoubtedly worth investing in but obviously we don't want to waste our money/time/energy investing in the wrong people or places to assist us. I can't think of one case where I would not recommend TrainSMART to someone... athletes, youth, the elderly population, "average Joes" and everyone in between have something to gain from all that TrainSMART has to offer. With TrainSMART, it is never too late, too complicated or too unrealistic to work on improving your quality of life, your health/fitness and overall happiness. Their team provides every single client with the attention necessary to develop a truly wise, personalized plan that WILL get you to whatever goals you are striving to achieve. They do not give every client the same plan, rather, they take the time to learn about YOU, your history and what you want to accomplish. I can't stress enough how much faith I have in the TrainSMART team. I have been training here for a mere month yet I have learned more applicable information than certain undergraduate semesters in college even taught me. I am seeing changes in my attitude, my habits and my strength with each training session. Thank you for the amazing work you do, TrainSMART!
I am a 54-year-old woman, who had a full right knee replacement at the age of 50. Years prior to my knee replacement I was very active and worked out very diligently. I was and am an interior designer, a skier, a Gardner, and was very active on a daily basis. I had 4 arthroscopic surgeries, with no positive long term results. With no other real alternatives, I decided to replace my knee. After my knee replacement surgery, my right leg had atrophied quite substantially. I went to rehab for a year and I was not happy with my results, and I knew I needed to do something else to improve my muscle strength and tone to my leg.
My husband started to train with Joe and I started to see results fairly quickly for him. So since I was determined to restore the strength to my leg, I gave Joe a try hoping for more positive results.
My situation was unique to Joe because he had never trained anyone with a knee replacement before. Joe created a training routine based on my challenge of a knee replacement, and my goals I had set for myself. I wanted to build my muscle back up in my leg, and tone at the same time. I also wanted to be back on the slopes skiing.
Joe exceeded my expectations. He created an all encompassing body workout routine, based on my needs. I am probably in the best shape of my life now, under his guidance and custom personal training. Working out will always be a challenge for me, but Joe has always kept me motivated and on track. He has really worked me hard, and yet at the same time has always been sensitive to my challenges. Needless to say it has been a very challenging and rewarding experience. I am confident in saying that I am much physically stronger and in better shape today because of Joe.
Prior to coming to TrainSMART, I frequented my physical therapist with injuries from running and typically ended up feeling better but never had a long-term plan to prevent injuries in the future. When I came to TrainSMART, I was shocked by how quickly I felt stronger not only in my running but in my everyday activities. TrainSMART individualizes each client's program based on how you move, your injury/medical history and your current goals. The training staff (including a chiropractor and physical therapist) are extremely well-versed in movement and provide hands-on assistance to ensure you are safe, pain-free and getting the most out of every session. TrainSMART shows you how movement really IS medicine. TrainSMART also provides nutrition guidance by working one-on-one to make a nutrition plan that guide you to your goals while considering whatever life or work can throw at you. If there is anything that the TrainSMART staff can not help their clients with, they are always willing to reach out to their incredible network of physical therapists, trainers and doctors to find the answer or provide the care and education their client needs. I cannot believe how strong I feel after only a few weeks of training at TrainSMART. My running has only improved in both my form and performance and everyday activities are easier than ever before. I now know how to lift/set down everything from groceries to my nephew in a way that will protect my back and allow me continue doing the activities I love. I cannot wait to see where I can progress in training with the support and guidance of the TrainSMART staff. Whether you are rehabilitating from an injury, looking to lose weight and feel better or you are an athlete, TrainSMART Personal Fitness can help you achieve your goals and then some! TrainSMART is truly unparalleled in Western New York.
I attended the GolfSMART workshop offered by TrainSMART on 7/25/19. This presentation was outstanding and based upon science and was very empowering. Mr. Joe Fox and Dr. Brandon Mancuso did exactly what they promised. They strategically and intelligently presented the facts based upon research and then presented the simple exercises that were designed to help improve your golf game at any level without experiencing any low back pain. As a local WNY high school golf coach and a Level One golf coach for the First Tee of WNY, I found that these skills and exercises are transferable to the student-athletes I coach and or instruct. No matter the age or level of experience, the skills presented by TrainSMART can and will make the difference and help improve and grow the game of golf. The skills introduced in the workshop provided an excellent base that will allow the golfers to warm their bodies and loosen the muscles and joints prior to starting the golf round. What was refreshing was that these sport science professionals made the learning environment fun, engaging and spoke at a level where anyone can learn and understand the concepts and skills presented. They allowed us to videotape the presentation and answer all questions asked. If you are looking for place to train and what want to improve your golf game. I highly recommend TrainSmart. Golf is a life-long sporting activity that can and should be enjoyed by all. However, the sport of golf places demands on our bodies (repetitive movement patterns) that if done incorrectly can cause health problems (low back issues)., which affects ones personal enjoyment level. Spending 20 minutes a day incorporating the skills taught can and will make the difference, change your life and allow you to grow and enjoy your golf game. Keep up the great work and please develop more GolfSMART workshop. You are making a difference by providing these educational workshops.
