Barry is extremely experienced and personal training comes naturally to him. We really liked that Barry took the time to lay a strong foundation for us, instead of rushing us; because he was concerned about safety, we began with low weights and simpler exercises to condition our bodies. With each exercise, he provided a thorough explanation of why we were doing the exercise, the correct form with which to perform the exercise, and how the exercise advanced us toward our goals. He even corrected misconceptions we had from working out with friends in college. Even though it sounds basic, laying this foundation enabled us to progress a lot without experiencing the bodily damage (e.g. extreme soreness and sometimes pain) that we used to experience from working out too hard before we were ready. Later, we were amazed at how much we were able to do because of the strong foundation we laid. As we progressed, Barry gave us more independence and guided us from a distance so that we could work out by ourselves in the future. Everything Barry did seemed to come to him naturally, probably because of his extensive knowledge and experience!
