.....I have no doubt that the fitness I gained by training under Preston's guidance has helped me achieve these goals. He has an ability to cut right to the chase - no wasted workouts, no wasted energy chasing some off-the-wall target. He is a clear communicator and a great motivator. I would unequivocally recommend him as a trainer - both for physical fitness and for life. He truly cares about people, and is willing to go the extra mile to encourage.
