Client Testimonials

The clients at ECF are one of a kind! We have such a range of individuals in our gym family... but they all work equally as hard to make progress toward their individual goals. At Elite Custom Fitness, we are always trying to build confidence in our clients through building up their areas of weakness and teaching them proper technique. We believe that with a strong foundation, any individual has the ability to make significant progress. You will never walk into our gym and feel intimated or less than anyone... You will feel empowered, cared for, and like you are part of the family!


I had let myself go and not exercised for several years as I took care of my family and worked part-time. One day, I realized that I was tired of being overweight and out of shape and I started working out with Tim. After working out with Tim twice a week and following his advice on nutrition and exercise, I was able to lose almost 30 pounds in 6 months! I gained back confidence and my energy level rose significantly! I feel like he has helped me to make a complete lifestyle change that will be with me forever. I am extremely grateful for his encouragement, support and motivation along the way.

I started going to ECF about a year ago, and Jess is my trainer. I couldn’t ask for anything better! She’s great at getting to know you and what motivates you. All of my training is customized to what I need and what I want to get out of it. I also love that this isn’t the standard gym where all of the random people are staring at you working out. It’s a small location, but the most people that I’ve seen in here at once is three (outside of the owner and any other employees). I heart ECF!

I have been going to Tim for almost a year now. Working out at the gym on my own just was not cutting it for what I was trying to do. Tim personalized my workout to what I am looking for and helps me to be stronger all over. It has been very beneficial since I have certain areas due to injury that maybe have had chronic pain in the back. The best thing is he know when to push you, but not in a way you will get discouraged. I highly recommend Tim.

A friend introduced me to Jess and ECF this summer and I immediately loved it. I would go once or twice a week with my friend and both she and Jess would challenge me to push my limits.

The facility is well-equipped and in a private location. I had never felt rushed, crowded, or intimidated. Jess made me feel comfortable and would encourage me to work harder. I look forward to getting back into it!

When it comes to personal training, Tim has great knowledge and enthusiasm. Being a former Division 1 athlete and continuing my training after college I never lost a beat when Tim became my trainer. I worked with Tim for three months and in that short time frame he has guided me to a new personal best in the power clean (125k) and helped me prepare to train for the US Track and Field Championships.

First Class Fitness Trainer. You can not find a better trainer. Personal development, strength, and attention to detail. I would recommend Tim to anyone that is serious about fitness. I drive all the way from Beaver to come to Tim, and it is well worth it.

Tim is a great trainer. He uses his education and knowledge to create an atmosphere of accomplishment for his clients. The programs he creates are based on the individual, and expertly modified if needed. By following the program Tim designed for me, my endurance has increased and I am significantly stronger. The environment is perfect for someone who seriously wants to improve and learn. This is not a situation where you are waiting in line for a piece of equipment, or trying to remember how the trainer told you to do an exercise during a 20 minute orientation. Here you get skilled, professional, one-on-one attention during each and every session. Tim’s personality makes training fun. I highly recommend ECF.

Tim, Jess and Freddie are outstanding trainers. I’ve been training at Elite for just a few months and have already improved my form, gained strength and reached new PRs. I really appreciate having someone that can identify where my weaknesses are and can target those areas with specific exercises. Everyone is very supportive and encouraging. I have a personal plan for improvement that actually works. I have a great time training at Elite and am looking forward to training in 2016.

ECF is one of the finest gyms you will come across. I’ve been lifting weights for half my life in gyms throughout Western PA. With Tim’s custom training regimen, you WILL see results. Over the last year, I have had the benefit of meeting and seeing numerous folks in the ECF facility. The theme is consistent... a tailored workout in a great atmosphere. Regardless of skill, training style, goal, or fitness level, everyone is respected and puts in hard work. That work pays dividends as you become stronger, leaner, and healthier. I highly recommend shaking the years old, or even abandoned, fitness routine and trying one of Tim’s innovative and fun programs. Hope to see you there!
