I finally reached my weight loss goal today with the help of Craig Favara and his mad crazy personal training skills! First time in my life working with a personal trainer, most definitely not what I expected. Significantly less time both per session and frequency, not hard or intimidating in any way. I actually look forward to each session, the transformation occurred quickly and was so motivating: my strength, energy, and overall good health is amazing. I haven’t felt like this in too many years to want to admit… my ONLY regret is not doing this sooner…like years ago! Kudos to Craig! Bring it on 2014! I’m ready! – Pam
