“Clayton is so attentive, supportive, and willing to be flexible with each individual client!... You will have fun, and he’s going to help you feel like your best self!”

"Life Changing! Those are the best two words to describe Clayton as a trainer. When I started with Clayton, I could walk a quarter of a mile and after two months, I am doing a mile without any problems. His compassion, knowledge, and personality are perfect for anyone, no matter what level of physical activity you are at."
- Billy Burkle, @BillyBurkle
"Clayton truly is a five gold star trainer!
(With a BRILLIANT attitude!)... His genuine positive attitude really set a beacon to embrace ‘finding failure’ -which took me a second to value the growth in doing one more rep. Clayton speaks transparently of his deep understanding that our body is mechanical and can be optimized at any level of performance."
