Transformations by some of our clients: * Results vary from person to person
"I came to Alex because I had been doing a lot of cardio and knew I needed more than just that. I wasn't very comfortable with weights and didn't know where to begin. I really wanted to increase muscle tone, decrease fat, and to make a life long change which I knew cardio alone would not get me. With Alex's help I was able to change daily eating habits and greatly better my workouts. I now feel more comfortable and confident using weights. Alex has been a rock for me during this transition. I am so much more happy with my body and through my training I feel better both physically and mentally. Alex has been extremely motivating, knowledgeable, encouraging, and kind. It shows that he genuinely cares about his clients. The man knows his stuff and I truly believe that I picked the best of the best when it comes to trainers."
“I don't know where I would be without Alex's training and his friendship. I have been to many trainers over the years and Alex was the first person to ever listen to my story and get me on the right path. I needed a trainer to tell ME what to do, not tell me what they do for themselves. Alex did exactly that. A new way of eating and training a few times a week and I was down 60 lbs in 6 months, all while maintaining my lean muscle mass. Not only did I feel better (physically and mentally) than ever before, I was able to compete in two physique competitions. Alex is nothing short of amazing and I look forward to seeing him every week.”
"I started training with Alex back in March 2013 for a competition. I met with him for a couple of minutes, told him my goals and that we had 11 weeks to get competition ready. Completely blown away that in that few minutes he remembered me, and built me a program specific to my goals. His style of training is simply the best. The changes that my body went through when I trained with Alex was amazing! Every week I noticed the changes, and couldn't believe that I could look like that ever. It was because of Alex. Every time I trained with him I left exhausted. This motivated me to give my best every day when he wasn't around. I live 5 hours away from Alex and got to train with him a couple of times a month in person. He was always there for me to answer questions, check in with me, and based on how I was progressing changing my routine or diet. I was used to having a trainer in the same town, and did not know what to expect with Alex being 5 hours away but we were always in contact. He was always available to talk, and if not he would make sure to get back to me as soon as he could. As a competitor this is HUGE especially towards the end. Alex was there every step of the way! He's inspiring because not only is his training top notch, he does this every day himself. He lives it and only wants to help others meet their goals."
“What can you say about somebody that you enjoy being around but hate while he pushes you to the edge and then over it. This has basically been my experience with Alex over the last few years. He has helped me to make a realistic workout schedule and diet plan to take me from my previous 300lbs to my current weight of 195lbs and continues to give me motivation to maintain this. It wouldn't have been possible without him.”
"Alex has been not only my trainer but coach as well. Because of his extensive knowledge in injury prevention, nutrition and guidance in fitness, I have competed in 3 shows, and qualified for national level 2X.
Alex has a dialed in approach with a special delivery to meet your personal goals. Alex is driven to get you where you want to be, not only as a competitor, but as a person who wants to better their physique, nutrition, and lifestyle. Alex will customize, formulate, and implement a personal fitness prescription just for you!
I highly recommend Alex by FAR! He Is THE BEST!! I rate him the highest rating ever!!!
Grateful for EVER!"
"So, this is the deal with NXT Level Fitness and Alex Atanasov. I've told others this story, but when I was searching for a personal trainer, I interviewed Alex. Among the many things he told me, this stood out: He said, "If I do my job, I will only be your trainer for a short time."
That statement sold me on Alex. Alex pushes me when I need to be pushed and when I don't. When I fall short, he helps me figure out why and we recalibrate and set new goals. Even though I sometimes leave NXT Level Fitness sore and tired, I am ALWAYS glad that I was there and that Alex is my trainer...and friend."
"Working with Farid was an awesome experience. Farid's coaching not only incorporated how to execute a great variety of exercises while maintaining proper form, but included two other critical aspects to health; sleep and diet. Early on Farid coached me on an optimal diet for gaining strength and losing weight, while holding me accountable to it. His holistic approach to coaching led me to 35 pounds of weight loss before my wedding! I achieved 9% body fat during this time! After losing weight we worked to gain muscle and in a matter of a few months I was able to put on over 10 pounds of muscle. Through this process Farid has inspired and taught me how to take control of my health and to help others with their's as well."
"I met Alex through a mutual friend. I was immediately impressed by the physiques of other people whom Alex had trained in the past, and was impressed that he obviously knew what he is doing. I don't take advice from people unless they have the results to prove their talk isn't just talk. I knew the road to achieving my fitness goals would include sweat and sacrifice, but meeting Alex literally changed everything for me. I was given a workout schedule and general meal guidelines. We modified things as necessary. Alex is an incredible trainer that I would recommend to anyone. I feel better in every possible way, stronger, more self assured, healthier. Alex has pushed me, and whenever I think I can't run anymore, or do another set, his words run through my mind, " if getting a six pack was easy, everybody would have one," and it pushes me to try just that much harder. His people skills and easy going personality make it a joy to work out with him, even when he's making you do stuff you never thought you'd have the strength to do.
In 5 months I've gone from 28% body fat to 17%, something that never would have been possible without Alex's guidance and training."
"Where do I start when it comes to thanking Alex for changing my life...
I met Alex about 2 years ago after seeing a friend of mine that had gone from about 30% body fat down to 6%. I was amazed at his transformation. I asked how he did it and he said it was Alex. So I met Alex and started to train with him. In less then a year I competed in 3 men's physique competitions. I placed in the top 4 and took first place at the final one!
I owe it all to Alex. His attention to detail and passion for his clients is amazing. He is so highly educated in fitness, and he passes his knowledge on to me and his other clients.
I could never have done this without him. I look forward to many many years of training with him!"
"I do not recommend many people in my life, but every once in a while you work with someone who is far better than the rest. Alex is one of those people. He is absolutely the best personal trainer I have worked with. Whether you are training to compete, slimming down, trying to improve your health or just improve your strength, Alex has the background and the commitment to help you succeed. Everyday whether I show up to training ready to go or in a funk. I can always count on Alex to be positive and motivating.
I started working with him a year ago and placed third in my first competition ever. So the results speak for themselves."
"I've been working out for many years and prior to meeting Alex, I thought that I was in great shape and knew what I was doing. After I decided to start training with Alex, I was proven wrong. He took me physically and mentally to a whole new level of fitness. Besides coaching me to 2nd and 1st place in the men's physique division for my first two competitions, he showed me that anyone can benefit from having a trainer. Alex made me feel like I was the only person in the gym when we were training and took advantage of every minute we spent working out together. Whether you're new to the gym, or like I was an expert in my own mind, Alex has the tools that will help you achieve whatever goals you have in mind. I'm grateful to have met you Alex and you'll always be my trainer and friend."
“In three short months Alex was able to transform my body like no one has before. Having worked with multiple trainers before and being a certified personal trainer myself, I never expected the results I have obtained. Alex was always available for help, advice, and motivation. He listened to my wants and needs which resulted in more success than I was prepared for. I feel lucky to have stumbled upon Alex and will use what I learned from him and apply it for the rest of my life. Thank you Alex. “
