We love testimonials from our happy clients!

Here are a few below:

Best work out facility in the entire area–I have belonged to enough to make that statement. No more of the gyms where you sign up and then get practically no personal attention unless you beg. I have been working out at Elite since early on and get the personal attention I want and need.

Patricia C. – Columbia, SC

Hey…loved speaking to the owner (Tina). From fitness to supplements to nutrition she has it down! Keep it up girl!

R. R. – Columbia, SC

Tina is awesome! She makes you feel comfortable and meets you where you are ability wise (have not worked out in years!!) to develop a plan specific to you. I opted for the personal training with Tina because I needed the accountability. She documents everything so she is not “guessing” what weight or routine you did last. She has helped me make changes in my diet that are doable and not a quick fix gimmick. I travel with my job and Tina is always accommodating which helps me stay on track. Highly recommend this gym and Tina – she gets results.

D. B. – Irmo, SC

I’ve been going to Elite for 3 1/2 years….longest I have ever stayed at a gym!!! Tina has helped me become stronger, drop about 20 pounds, and even enjoy a serious workout! Lots of great tips with my eating habits and wonderful motivation to get healthy. I am so much stronger, have more energy, and my clothes are 2 sizes smaller….can’t beat that!

Jane D. – Columbia, SC

It’s a great place to get professional, skilled AND fun training. Tina Wilkerson, the owner, is very knowledgeable and a great motivator! Josh Ballard, one of the trainers, will give you a workout that will push you to the limit but in a good way:) Joining Elite Personal Training has been one of the best decisions I’ve made thus far 2014! Check is out! You will not be disappointed!

T. S. – Columbia, SC

I’m in my fourth month of personal training with Tina, and I love it! My goals were to gain strength, balance, muscle tone and to do what I can to keep my bones strong. I’ve enjoyed the workouts from day one but am now seeing and feeling the results. I feel stronger and notice a big difference with daily activities. I can even keep up with my two-year-old granddaughter with lots of lifting and toddler activity without getting sore and achy! This is the first time ever that I can truly say that I enjoy exercising. The personal plan, guidance, and encouragement from Tina make all the difference!

Carole M. – Columbia, SC

Tina knows what she is doing! I have dropped over 20 lbs and gained muscle in several months of personal training with her. She has helped me look at my diet, showed me healthy and delicious ways to eat that also enable me to lose weight. She pushes me further than I would push myself and has taught me the right ways to exercise. I strongly recommend her to anyone who is serious about changing their life. She is worth the cost!

Lynne O. – Columbia, SC

I will never go to one of those “super” gyms again. the classes are small and a personal trainer works directly with you with a tailored workout routine so you get the best results!!! you know exactly what you’re working and they make sure you do it correctly unlike going to a class with 20 or more people and have no idea if you’re doing it right. love, love, love this gym!

Amy C. – Irmo, SC

With the help and encouragement of the trainers at Elite Personal Training, I have lost over 50 lbs. More importantly, my quality of life has increased immensely. I am in the best shape physically that I have been in in 20 years and just feel better in general. I owe so much to them – not just for the physical changes, but the emotional changes as well. While the work is hard and challenging, I actually look forward to my workouts (and I thought I would never say that). This is due solely to the atmosphere that they have built at Elite. I know that they truly care about me and my well being.

Sam Gunter

I was like a lot of others when it came to exercise – I had been to several gyms and instructed on what to do, then was left alone and never knew if I was doing the exercises properly. Not so at EPT. The first day I walked in, I was scared to death not knowing what to expect. I was totally surprised that not only was I going to be trained but I was going to change my entire eating habits. It was not an easy challenge for me but with the assistance of the trainers I was motivated and never bored. With diet and exercise, one of my goals of losing 30 pounds was achieved within 6 months. It was very rewarding that I had finally been able to achieve a goal that I had not been able to accomplish and maintain! Tina is one of the most conscientious trainers anyone could want. She stays right with you, encourages you, and makes sure you are doing each exercise properly. The workouts are fun and entertaining (if you can believe that) with lots of laughter to make it feel like exercise is actually not hard work at all.

Marcia Padgett

My experience has been phenomenal. It took no time for me to realize that the trainers here are sincerely interested and personally vested in helping me reach my goals. They are trainers, motivators, cheerleaders, and drill sergeants all at the appropriate times. The uplifting and positive environment make me look forward to each session’s fun, even though I know the exercises are going to be tough. I have no doubt that each session will be specifically tailored so that I can reach my individual goals effectively and safely. They take the time to explain the importance of doing the exercises the right way and carefully watch to make sure proper form is used. I have already seen a vast improvement in muscle definition, and my clothes fit much better. As important, I have a different attitude toward and renewed interest in health and nutrition.

Kassi Sandifer

Elite Personal Training Rocks!!! I had decided late in 2009 that I had to make drastic changes in my life when my doctor told me that I would qualify to have gastric bypass surgery. This scared me to death and I made a decision to change my life. I wasn’t going to have this surgery, I had to be strong enough to make the changes myself but needed guidance. I wanted to be healthy and fit and set a good example for my daughter. I can honestly say that Elite Personal Training has changed my life!!! I have lost 89 pounds and am amazed at my body’s transformation!! Coming from someone who has always disliked exercise I can now say that I love to work out and feel amazing!! Tina and Louise offer not only their expertise in strength training and diet but offer encouragement, motivation, diversity and constant challenges in my workouts. I recently saw my doctor and was told that my heart rate was what he typically sees in runners and swimmers!

Kim Summer

We have really enjoyed our experience with EPT. We have found the motivation and accountability we lacked while working out on our own. We both feel stronger and have more energy. We have also lost weight – myself 13 lbs. and my husband 10lbs.! The atmosphere is very inviting. We feel like with the other members, we have joined a fitness community/family, not just a gym. We trust the trainers to make a strenuous workout fun. We really enjoy the results we have seen so far and look forward to the continued success with EPT.

Jonathan and Kathryn Mount

The tailor says my expensive Italian made suit pants cannot be taken up anymore. I’ve lost four inches off my waist and counting – 17lbs. total! You will cost me an entire new wardrobe but I’m not complaining. The upbeat atmosphere and friendly banter amongst new friends I’ve met at EPT motivate me to look forward to workouts. I am stronger and healthier than I have felt in years. I recently aced my doctor’s stress test having scored twenty years younger than my chronological age. Ten years ago the test was extremely difficult and surpassed my abilities. This time, the physical challenge was comfortably within the maximum capabilities you have helped me achieve.
