Below is a collection of client success stories. Please note individual results will vary
“High school and the beginning of college probably were some of the most toxic times for me. Before I can remember I was playing competitive soccer so I always had workouts planned for me. On top of that, I was extremely confused about how to maintain a balanced diet and developed a very twisted perspective on a “healthy diet”.
I started struggling disordered eating in high school and that continued into early college. Due to a lack of knowledge of how to develop a structured workout plan, I became a “cardio bunny” and my weight fluctuated between 35 lbs. Germain and I met my freshman year and it became very evident how dedicated he was working as a personal trainer at NCSU. He became one of the few people aware and who I could trust knowing about my previous struggles with eating disorders. On October 14, 2014, my dedication to fitness completely changed…
“I’ve been active ever since I could walk. Starting with ballet and gymnastics at the age of 4 and eventually transitioning into competitive cheerleading, hip-hop dance, and volleyball. When I went to NC State in 2012 I carried on being active by playing club Volleyball and after a year of doing that I decided to pursue another passion of mine, fitness.
During my sophomore year, I went through a course, audition, and interview to become a group fitness instructor, which led me on an incredible fitness journey that lasted throughout the entirety of my undergraduate career.
For 3 years teaching group fitness was a very big hobby of mine, though one that I decided not to continue after graduation, mainly because I was really excited to not have to plan my personal workouts around the classes I was teaching. I wanted to be able to focus on just myself for the first time in 3 years. Little did I know, I would enter the biggest fitness rut of my entire life…
… Before joining ACC, I wanted to live an overall healthier lifestyle. I wasn’t experiencing any “problems” aside from being overweight. I had tried many weight loss programs prior to ACC such as AdvoCare, Low Carb, and Medi WeightLoss. However, after a while, I would always gain the weight back.
I’m happy to confirm as a result of ACC coaching I was able to lose weight (15 pounds total, 11 of which were pure fat) and gained muscular strength, which were my top two goals when I started this program.
Without a doubt, I am most proud of how much my body has transformed. Many people have told me that I am looking “healthier.” Strangely enough, my skin has started to look better too (added bonus!).
Now when I look in the mirror I notice how broad my shoulders look and how defined they are in addition to my chest…
Before signing up for Belladonna Conditioning Coaching I had never done online training through an app, however, after working with the app everything turned out just fine!
Before joining BCC, I had tried group fitness classes and working out with friends, but I still wanted to try something else that would help me lose weight and help me tone my muscles.
As a result of BCC coaching, I was able to successfully lose weight, an accomplishment which I’m very proud of.
I am grateful for having Germain keep me accountable throughout this program. The structure and knowledge Germain brings as a trainer is something that was extremely beneficial to my overall experience.
And while sometimes I was a bit confused with the formatting of the workout programs, for example, rep ranges and percentages based off my 1RM, I would definitely recommend this program.
It’s a good alternative to not working with an in-person trainer or for someone who doesn’t have the time to meet with them. And there’s really no downside to trying it, it’s cheaper than personal training and I really can’t stress enough that you should just go ahead and try it for yourself!
“I’ve been working with Germain for over four months and he is a truly excellent trainer. He helped me get out of the rut of excuses that kept me from working out in the past by motivating me to push past my perceived limits and get results! His professionalism, extensive knowledge and enthusiastic commitment to his clients provide the perfect scenario for success and learning—particularly when it comes to correct exercise form. I’ve gained energy and muscle while losing fat, and in the process, my balance and flexibility have improved immensely. He is the perfect combination of challenging and inspiring, and because of his efforts, working out has become fun. Through Germain’s perfect combination of diverse training methods, individualized exercise programs, challenging but achievable goals and consistent and positive feedback and encouragement, he retrained my attitude while also training my body. Whether it’s lifting weights, boxing, CrossFit, or TRX I recommend Germain without reservation. Let him change your life!”

“Germain has been my personal trainer for almost three years. I’m in my mid 50s and I can truly say, with his help, I’m in the best shape of my life. My custom workout is new every week which keeps it challenging, creative and fun. He knows my strengths and weaknesses and knows when to push me and when to back off. I appreciate that he is able to provide viable work-arounds when I am hindered with a specific injury. Not only is Germain professional and motivating but he’s also a very nice and likeable guy. If you are considering a personal trainer look no further – he’s your man!”

“Exalted Vigour Athletics (EVA) helped me burst through many plateaus. Doing the Hollywood physique coaching program I saw many changes in strength gains and muscle size. The weekly workout program is easy to follow as the program also comes with an easy way to track your workouts. The Exalted Vigour staff was easy to reach for help or questions I had. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone wanting to increase muscle size or get back in shape.”
