"I look forward to my sessions, to how I feel afterwards and my progress. I've been working out with Henri for over a year. Having worked out with a few different trainers, I truly appreciate all that Henri does. Henri truly helps me work towards my goals. He remembers them, tracks them and customizes my program for my goals. As my goals grow, he works these goals into my program. This allows me to make progress without getting bored. The specific exercises he brings are interesting, new to me and challenging. This requires thinking and time outside of our sessions. I much appreciate this hard work. Henri always has a positive attitude and a genuine persona. Between the beta-endorphin injection from working out, and Henri's positive attitude, I never fail to leave the gym feeling far better than when I entered. I consider Henri a friend at this point and his friendships help me keep going when I feel like throwing in the towel. I believe many UFIT one-north trainers exhibit this kind and genuine attitude, but Henri epitomizes it for me."
