“i.e. fitness is amazing! You can find equipment and trainers at any gym. This gym and these two trainers are top notch! Their programs and knowledge are over the top. They continue to educate themselves with proper technique in the work outs they provide and continuously help you with nutrition. The bottom line is this: Ian and Emily are two individuals that care for all their clients well being and are always there for you. This is what separates i.e. Fitness from other Gyms!! Give it a try! You will not be disappointed!”

“I love i.e. fitness!!! This is the only exercise that I have stuck with, EVER!!! I have been coming to this class for over a year and a half now, and Emily and Ian keep it fun yet challenging, with lots of variety so it never gets boring! They go above and beyond, with different challenges for every fitness level, and extra nutrition advice and info to really take your health to the next level. Excellent class, and even better trainers.”

“I started training with Ian & Emily in the fall of 2014, when I was age 60. The improvement in my health, strength, energy level and general fitness after 10 months of i.e. fitness training is nothing short of astonishing. At age 61 I am in the best shape of my life! Ian & Emily are extremely kind, generous and knowledgable, and the knowledge they share goes far beyond mere exercise. They provide their clients with powerful insights about diet, nutrition and positive mental attitude as well. The personal attention and encouragement they give to every one of their clients is tremendously inspiring, and makes training fun and easy. I have never really enjoyed exercise classes, but the i.e. Fitness class is something I look forward to with great enthusiasm. I can’t thank them enough for the dramatic improvement in the quality of my life!”

“I had been looking to get back into the workout routine for a long time and was struggling to get motivated and get to the gym. That all changed when I found i.e. fitness. Ian and Emily are so encouraging and uplifting and their gym is like a family atmosphere and is not intimidating at all! This was what I was exactly looking for. They offer both personal training and boot camp sessions. Their classes are a mix of both cardio and strength training. Just after a few months into it, I already see a change in my physique and energy level! It is all because of ie! This is the best I have felt in a long time. Thank you Ian and Emily for getting my butt in gear!”

“Great workout given by great instructors. They are constantly changing the exercises and have a written plan in place for every session. They go bell to bell – a full 60 minutes. No time shaving to transition to the next class. Their passion and dedication is apparent the moment you meet them, and they treat everyone with the same respect and make you feel comfortable whether you are a professional athlete or a fat old man like myself.”

“Emily and Ian are really a cut above when it comes to personal trainers (and I have tried many!). I have been training with Emily for about a year now and always get an amazing workout that is tailored to my specific needs. She is currently helping me train for my first half-marathon! Not only has she been a phenomenal friend and trainer to me, but she also trains my son with special needs and I could not be more grateful to her for her kindness, compassion and patience. Ian is an amazing trainer to my other two boys who cannot wait for their sessions every week. I cannot rave enough about these two!!”

“It was really difficult for me to work out because I couldn’t get motivated and having a gym membership didn’t help much either. After joining i.e. fitness several years ago (2012) I have a very different attitude toward exercising. Ian and Emily inspire you to succeed and strive for your goals. Their encouragement, praise & humor create an atmosphere that motivates you to push yourself to the max. The workout is different every time so you never get bored. I have worked with many trainers at gyms but there are no trainers like Ian & Emily. Thank you!”
