Private personal training, group personal training, and personal Trainer Reviews
Sarah | "i love coming here and will continue to come for years to come"
I am so glad I found Sergio. I have changed so many trainers because I wasn't seeing progress and I wasn't satisfied with them. I have seen great progress in such a small amount of time. Sergio is an amazing trainer and I love the fact that his gym is private. Sergio and his girlfriend Jackie are the nicest people I've met. No matter what they will always greet you with a smile. Often times I get lazy and don't feel like going to the gym but because of these two, I go religiously. I am so very happy with Sergio and Jackie and how amazing they are. I have recommended them to my friends and family. I love coming here and I will continue to come here for years to come. They have gone above and beyond to make sure their clients are comfortable and they have gone above and beyond to make sure they accommodate me keeping my schedule in mind. Whenever I change my schedule, which is often, Sergio is happy to do it without complaining.
Brett | "Sergio and Jackie were so kind, knowledgeable, and welcoming i felt comfortable right away!"
I have been going to Surge for about a month now, and I am seeing some serious results! I feel healthier, stronger, and in great shape. Jackie is an amazing personal trainer, listens, and knows when to push. I honestly knew nothing about how to work out properly, and I was a bit intimidated before I went in for my first session. But Sergio and Jackie were so kind, knowledgeable, and welcoming that I felt comfortable right away! I look forward to my workouts, and the rates are really affordable! I cannot recommend this place enough.
Lilly | "sergio makes the gym environment extremely comfortable for first timers"
First Time signing up with a personal trainer. Sergio makes the gym environment extremely comfortable for first timers, allowing us to understand how progress is measured in terms of what we are looking for in sessions. Do not be fooled by the fact there are not many machines. You would be surprised how much your own body can do with the exercises Sergio has you do!!! I have been at the gym since January 2017 and have already lost close to 5lbs, consistency is key and Sergio helps you stay on track with your own fitness.
MAriela | "I live 40 minutes away but Jackie's worth the drive and i will not go anywhere else"
I don’t normally write reviews and it’s not like Surge To New Levels Gym needs another great review but I felt everyone needed to know about Jackie. She’s part of the Surge to New Levels Team and is an outstanding personal trainer. I have been training with her for a month now and I absolutely love her!! I have a hectic work schedule and Jackie was able to accommodate me. She’s extremely patient and knows what works best for me but also pushes me and doesn’t let me give up on myself. I look forward to the days that I get to train with her. She’s definitely helped get my confidence up and my strength. I live about 40 minutes away but she’s worth the drive and I will not go anywhere else. I already recommend her to my friends and family and recommend her to anyone reading this review.
Tara | "don't miss out on the opportunity to work out.. with a trainer who builds you every step of the way"
Sergio provides an excellent level of service. Every workout has been custom-tailored to meet my needs over the last 4-5 months. He continues to find the right balance of pushing me to, but not past, my limits. While he clearly knows about and has had great success in the power-lifting world, he is very approachable for a casual fitness enthusiast like myself. He definitely delivers on his promise to make you stronger with his unique approach. He handles his business with great integrity and shares his expertise with ease for all levels. The Surge to New Levels gym itself matches his inspirational approach. It is a vibrant, clean, welcoming space with all the equipment you need to get to your own next level, whatever that may be. Don't miss out on the opportunity to work out in a space that takes away all the pressures of working out with a trainer who builds you up every step of the way.
Jeanette | "Overall I'd give Jackie a 10/5. Our Relationship has definitely flourished and i'm excited to see where it goes from there"
My experience with Jackie has been nothing short of amazing! She is extremely patient with me, as I tend to have little injuries (sometimes from running, sometimes just because I'm a cluts). She also pushes me to my full potential and I've seen my body change throughout the four months that I have been with her. Jackie listens to my goals and makes my workout plans based on that. For example, we first started off doing a lot of strength training, but since I'm training for my third marathon, I asked for more agility as I am going for a faster end time this year. Needless to say, she listen and is kicking my ass! Overall, I'd give her a 10/5...our relationship as trainer/trainee has definitely flourished and I'm excited to see where it goes from there. Sergio and Jackie are doing great! Keep it up guys. Just know that I wouldn't be consistently coming back to you guys if I didn't genuinely believe in your skill sets and the way that you run things.
Cesar | "both trainers are extremely nice and friendly. truly recommend people to check this out. you won't be DISAPPOINTed"
Extremely knowledgeable coaches they know what they're doing. They teach you the proper stance and technique for a more efficient and safe workout. Ive been training with Sergio for over a year now. I'm extremely stronger physically and mentally from when i first started training. Both trainers are extremely nice and friendly i truly would recommend people to check this gym out. You wont be disappointed.
Aditya | "Sergio and Jackie are friendly and honest people"
Sergio and Jackie are friendly and honest people. The gym is full of high-end equipment, and comes with a great atmosphere."
SAGAR | "My girlfriend and I have seen so much progress in just two months of us being here"
I would highly recommend this place. My girlfriend and I go together and both of us have seen so much progress in just two months of us being here. Jackie and Sergio are amazing people and they are very welcoming. Sergio is very knowledgeable and knows what he's doing. I look forward to coming here and the best part is, we don't have to pay for a gym membership which is great. The workout regimen and meal guides he provides have proven incredibly effective. Again, highly recommend!
Nubia | "I love the atmosphere and equipment"
An awesome gym ! For whatever your fitness goals may be ! Started training here only a few months ago and I love the atmosphere and the equipment ! Sergio is very knowledgeable and He has helped me out so much whether it's one on one or group training ! Highly recommend you to stop by and see it for yourself !
Jeff | "Both Trainers are fantastic and dedicated to helping you reach your goals"
Awesome experience at this location both trainers are fantastic and dedicated to helping you achieve your goals. Highly, highly recommend.
Megan | "sergio and jackie are so knowledgeable yet some of the most humble people i've met"
Such a supportive and friendly atmosphere at this gym! Sergio and Jackie are so knowledgeable yet some of the most humble people I've met. By far the best gym I've been to!
Cassandra | "He is not the typical trainer who does not listen to his clients and is only there to collect a paycheck"
Sergio is an awesome guy to have train you!! I'm always looking forward to the days that I train with him because I know when I leave after that workout I have been challenged and I'm one day closer to my fitness goals. He is not the typical trainer who does not listen to his clients and is only there to collect a paycheck-- I have a lower back issue and he's always checking with me on how a certain exercise/lift felt on my back. He truly listens to his clients and what they want out of their gym experience!! The facility is great too! I have been to gyms where I feel uncomfortable training at because it feels like a beauty/popularity contest. Surge To New Levels Gym has the atmosphere where ALL will feel their very best there, no matter your fitness level, weight, gender, etc. Everyone there is super nice, accepting, and very helpful!!
Srikrishna | "The owner is knowledgeable experience and friendly"
Surge To New Levels is super well stocked with the best equipment I've ever seen in a gym or worked with. Sergio, the owner, is knowledgeable, experienced and friendly. If you are either interested in powerlifting or strength and conditioning, definitely check this place out!
Sid | "sergio is the real deal.. in this industry you will find people with their heads in the clouds..humility is rare..he will never let you feel below him"
Sergio is the real deal. In this industry, you'll find people with their heads in the clouds, egos to the ceiling. Humility and sincerity are rare. Even though this man is an accomplished lifter with amazing knowledge and drive, he will never let you feel below him. I've spent at most a few hours training with him, but I would happily recommend his gym and training to anyone. His personalized approach to fitness and community spirit is truly inspiring- and you're guaranteed to achieve results with him.
Mayra | "it has been a wonderful experience and sergio had already helped me lose close to 25lbs"
I highly recommend this gym to anyone who is serious about lifting or getting in shape. It has been a wonderful experience. Sergio is an outstanding and knowledgeable trainer/gym owner and has already helped me lose close to 25 pounds. I suffered a back injury in 2005 and he has helped me strengthen my core which has help with the back pain.
The gym itself is super clean and has the best equipment in town. I am so glad I have him as a trainer.
Tami | "genuinely nice and humble so you are never intimidated..always encouraged. don't hesitate to call him"
Sergio is the BEST! He customizes each workout so that it is challenging but never too strenuous. He gets results. I have seen physical changes in my shape over the few months I have been working with him, but more importantly, I am so much stronger in everyday life. Also, he is a genuinely nice and humble person so you are never intimidated - always encouraged. Don't hesitate to call him if you want to gain strength and confidence.
August | "the owner is always getting new equipment asking for peoples suggestions"
Great enviroment for making progress not only are the trainers knowledgeable and very experienced but the members too, all of them add to the environment and experience in some way, whether it just giving a spot or rallying behind someone on a big lift. The owner is also always getting new equipment and asking for peoples suggestions. It has everything i need to meet my goals
Nina | "you truly feel like your success is his success.. he really listens to his clients"
Sergio is incredible at what he does! He's truly invested in each of his client's success. He created a workout and eating plan for me that challenges both my mind and body. You truly feel like your success is his success. He really listens to his clients. I appreciate how he adjusts workouts depending on injuries, soreness, etc. Give him a shot! You'll really be glad you did!
Deepthi | "sergio is very comfortable to work with"
Sergio is very comfortable and easy to work with. I am very happy with the service I got till now.. looking forward to reach my goal with his help.
Brett | "very knowledgeable and take the time to explain and demonstrate exercises"
Great place to work out! Sergio and Jackie are always friendly and helpful. I've been seeing Sergio and he is very knowledgeable and takes the time to explain and demonstrate exercises while still pushing me and packing a lot into each hour long workout. The gym has a great environment and I always look forward to going.
Ruby | "My sister and I commute from midway and it's totally worth it!
Highly recommend it!! For years I've been telling myself I would work out but I always lacked the knowledge and motivation. Sergio educates me and always pushes me to do better. My sister and I commute from Midway airport and IT'S TOTALLY WORTH IT! congrats Sergio on your success with your business
Vanesa | "sergio is the best i cannot emphasize that enough"
Sergio is the BEST. I cannot emphasize that enough . He truly cares about your goals and success. He isn't like other trainers that do not value your time and are only worried about making money. He will motivate you to your fullest. I accomplished more than I thought I would. I am very pleased with him and will be returning with Sergio soon!
EVelyn | "i have nothing but good things to say.. I can honestly say that working with sergio got me through my plateau"
I have nothing but good things to say about Sergio. For years I had been going to the gym on a regular basis, but I was not seeing the results I wanted. I took some personal training classes that my gym offered, however I felt like my needs/goals were still not being met.
I came across Sergio through friends who had used his services. After seeing their impressive progress pictures I decided to give personal training another chance.
I can honestly say that working with Sergio got me through my plateau. Within two weeks of seeing him twice a week I started seeing results. I started lifting and lost the fear of "looking manly". I lost body fat, arms/legs were looking toned, and my core was more defined. There is no greater satisfaction than seeing your before and after photos and seeing what you are able to accomplish if you just push through.
I can tell you that Sergio is tough, but that's what makes it worth it! Highly recommend him and his services!
Josielyn | "very detailed with his instructions and definitely knows his craft"
I did a one on one training with Surge. He definitely kicked my butt and I really enjoyed it. He was very detailed with all his instructions and he definitely knows his craft. He was easy to talk to and has made the training less stressful! Great trainer overall and would highly recommend him to anyone!!!
Mike | "he came highly recommended and he's lived up to the billing"
I love working with Sergio. I was looking for someone to teach me how to squat and deadlift as I had no prior experience. He came highly recommended and he's lived up to the billing. He's very knowledgeable and has a great demeanor. His location is out of the way for me, but it's worth it.
Tomas | "sergio is an all around awesome person who is driven, knowledgeable, and cares about his clients"
Sergio is an all around awesome person who is driven, knowledgeable, and cares about his clients. I have never been serious about the gym until i started going to Sergio. In the past year I have smashed PR's and put on 40 pounds of muscle. Sergio got me to love working out again and I cannot thank him enough for it!
Cassandra | "he was more than someone to tell me what to do, he was a teacher who genuinely cared"
In February 2015, I decided to take a chance at a free personal training session with Sergio. I had been struggling for months to get my health and fitness back on track. Throughout the session, Sergio was patient, flexible, and understanding, and he accommodated to my physical draw backs. I was able to comfortably do exercises and still get a good workout in. After that, I knew that Sergio had what it takes to help me get back on my feet. I’ve always had an issue with my balance, but over time, my balance and coordination improved so much! I learned to lunge, squat, and even deadlift, exercises that I never really focused on because I thought I lacked the ability and I definitely lacked the knowledge. Now, thanks to working with Sergio, these workouts are routine and are definitely a huge benefit. I went from eating twice a day, to eating practically all day and eating better. Sergio helped make sure that I was doing what I was supposed to be doing and even went over the WHY. He was more than someone to tell me what to do, he was a teacher who genuinely cared. So now 3 months down the road from where I began, I am more educated about fitness, eating better, more disciplined, stronger and have lost body fat. I’ve dropped 7lbs and have managed to keep them off. Thanks to Surge To New Levels, my lifestyle has changed and I cannot thank Sergio enough, it feels great to be living a healthier life!
Derek | "most trainers nowadays will think up one workout plan, surge actually thinks of a plan to help each individual person"
Great personal trainer. Very knowledgeable person and the way he actually helps is astonishing. Most trainers now a days will just think up of one workout plan and apply it to everyone, Surge To New Levels LLC actually thinks of a plan to help each individual person and it actually works! I recommend him.
Stephanie | "his sessions are tough in a good way and never intimidating, always encouraging"
I am someone who before meeting Sergio had never really worked out and had never weight trained. Sergio is an amazing trainer and is very passionate about what he does. His sessions are tough but in a good way and never intimidating. Sergio has been very encouraging and patient when it comes to my fitness goals.
I've been going to Sergio once a week for about 6-8 months now with my sister and have seen awesome improvements. We started with lower body and within weeks saw my legs getting toned and gaining muscle. Never would I have thought that I would ever be able to squat 135lbs and it feels great! I am stronger than I was before I started and know that I can only get stronger! All due to Sergio pushing you even when you feel like you can't because he sees your full potential! Not only has he helped me with my fitness goals but also with nutrition. Everything is personalized to meet all my goals. HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM!
Jackie | "as a girl i always found the gym overwhelming, but i would recommend him to absolutely anyone"
Before training with Sergio I had lost some weight just from dieting alone but I still wasn't happy and I knew that I would see better results by adding in exercise to my daily routine.
As a girl I always found the gym and personal trainers to be overwhelming, but after a friend recommended Sergio I would recommend him to absolutely anyone who is looking to take on a healthier lifestyle. He is truly awesome at what he does!
Sergio's guidance in strength training and eating healthy has allowed me to see results, feel more confident but always strive to be better and stronger. He is humble with his knowledge and knows how to give his clients that extra push without being intimidating which to me is the key to a great trainer!
Josephine | "the equipment is new and always challenging"
I've been working with Sergio for about 5 months now and he has the knowledge base to show results. He pushes me to be stronger each session while keeping in mind my goals and what i am able to do. The equipment is new and always challenging. The company (people) and atmosphere make me want to come back each week. It is never boring here, plan to get your workout in.
