I used to think I was past the age to begin exercising and my weight gain and energy loss could not be reversed...not to mention my two knee replacements. My wife Ginny told me... "It's not because your're 72, its because you're out of shape. You need to get off your rear and do something about it". I hate it when my wife is right. I started seeing Neal over a year ago and the results have been remarkable. Exercise and diet modification has resulted in 6" waist reduction and 30 pound weight loss, an increase in strength and energy and the ability to do things I thought were forvever lost. I knew something good wa happening when I could see my feet without leaning over. I lost 4" in my waist before I lost a single pound. Neal has done a masterful job of making workouts interesting, challenging and effective - he gets results. *

I started @ BBD in February with a few specific goals in mind. I wanted to improve my overall cardiac health and prevent bone density loss that goes along with aging. I also wanted to participate in outdoor activities without feeling miserable, winded, and generally out of shape.
The trainers @ BBD designed a program to address my goals along with providing pertinent nutritional information. I am blown away by my results. I have dropped 30 lbs and am in the best shape I have been in since college.
The trainers are personally invested in helping you achieve your goals. The atmosphere in the gym is encouraging, energetic and non judgmental. There is great flexibility when scheduling workouts so the "I don't have time to workout today" excuse is hard to use.

I never thought at 42 I could be healthy and fit after spending the last 20years 50 lbs overweight. I had metabolic Syndrome which included insulin resistance and high cholesterol. I would be able to loose a few pounds but never could keep it off or make an impact on my blood work numbers. That all changed once I started working with Neal. I dropped my body fat by 7% in just the first 6 weeks. His expert knowledge of nutrition along with fun and challenging workouts has totally transformed my body. People I have known for years don't even recognize me. He keeps me excited and motivated with exercises that are different from anything I've ever done before. I can't wait to go in to the gym and see what I can a accomplish next. I thank Neal for helping me get back the control of my health, and I am so happy that I have now wiped out metabolic syndrome. I now feel I have a better and healthier future. *
"Neal has been my personal trainer for 3 years and I have seen amazing results during this time! When I first started training with Neal, my goal was to tone and lose body fat, but I was also experiencing low energy; posture issues including back pain; as well as digestive problems. Within 3 months of training, I had lost 6 pounds of body fat; my energy level increased exponentially and my overall health improved dramatically. Neal is passionate about health and fitness, and his innovative training techniques along with a balanced nutrition plan have allowed me to achieve results I never thought possible. As I began to lose body fat and increase muscle, my clothes fit better and I was able to wear a bikini for the first time in over 15 years! I believe that people are always evolving and changing and it's never too late to start… At 45, I am in the best shape of my life and I have never felt stronger, healthier and more confident! It is also very important to set a good example for my two young daughters by instilling healthy lifelong habits. Body by Design provides unparalleled service in fitness which sets them apart from big box gyms. All trainers are caring, supportive and attentive to each clients' needs, and I am honored to be affiliated with the Body by Design family."
I was ready for a big change in my life and I knew I needed help. Being over weight for the past 25 years , out of shape and yoyo dieting . Best decision of my life was to join Body by Design. I am 3 months into training with Jon and Tony . I have lost body fat and feel better than ever. The fitness center is upbeat and motivating. I look forward to my workouts. I give a big Thanks to BBD .

Joining Body by Design has been the best decision I have ever made for my health. After working out with Gina, Jon and Neal for six months, I was able to lose 12 pounds and drop significant inches. Working out with this group of trainers is very high energy and so rewarding. Every time I walk in the door, everyone greets you with such enthusiasm, you are bound to get a great workout. They have taught me so much about how using correct form can help you become stronger and reach your goals quicker. The nutritional support they have given me has really shaped what I eat and has definitely changed my body. I can't wait to see where my next year of training at Body by Design takes me!

I have been a member of Body By Design since Sept 2017. I have to say that Vinny is one of the best trainers in Atlanta! He is extremely personable and knowledgeable. If you are unsure of what to eat/when to eat it- he is just a text message away! If you are looking for a gym with high energy with trainers who truely cares about you! Look no further- I have lost almost 40 lbs and i only saw Vinny twice a week- he gives you the knowledge and the resources to be successful outside of the gym! - I cannot wait until January when I have more time to go back to this place! It truely has changed my life!!!!!!

I highly recommend Body by Deign for anyone wanting a personal trainer. I personally was tired of being fat. I needed a place to go to be accountable, as I was fat due to being lazy. They delivered a tailored workout plan for me to lose weight and firm the fat. The staff are all professional and knowledgeable about fitness and nutrition. So far in a fairly short period of time I have been able to lose weight and inches. I have more energy and feel much better.

“Dave came in with goals of looking to lose bodyfat, tone, and become healthier overall. He has worked extremely hard at ensuring this happens through working with our team on pros who designed a customized program for him. Initially weighing in at 235lbs and 33.25% body fat, Dave dropped to 228lbs and 24.3% bodyfat. The data tells us that a total of 21lbs of bodyfat was lost while 14lbs of lean muscle was added in a matter of 20 weeks. A leaner, more dense and sculpted physique has been the result. We’re super proud of Dave’s dedication, positive attitude, and work ethic! - Body By Design Owner
Monica has had an unbelievable transformation ever since she started with training with Tony 3 years ago. .She has prior experience with several other trainers at “high end” large gyms and speaks as if Tonys training is un-paralleled. At 66, she has lost 30lbs with him and has recently completed her first competition with Tony right at her side. This is a huge accomplishment and ought to be recognized. While some people her age consider walking their dog or on jogging on a treadmill “real” exercise…Monica is preparing for weight lifting competitions. Not to mention, tin July 2015 she came home with a gold medal. While competing is not for everyone…the fact she felt confident enough with her ability and technique to go in front of judges speaks volumes. Great job to Tony and Monica for continuing to show what dedication, consistency, and great coaching can do to the body and the mind!!! She says her energy levels, posture, and mood have her feeling like she is 20 again! Super Inspiring.*

I sought out a new experience since I was not getting the results I needed on my own at a big box gym. I needed help and someone to push me. Man did I come to the right place! I met all the folks here and it is a family atmosphere but a no-nonsense intense workout that gets real results. I have Anna Kravette as a trainer and she puts my body through its paces far beyond what I could ever do on my own. Trust me I don't write reviews often but this little place will get you in shape. I have been working out here for 6 months and I would 100% recommend it to anyone who needs to lose weight, tone muscles, and just be the best version of you. I have lost 16lbs of body fat, several notches on my belt, and my energy levels are through the roof. I feel the absolute best I ever have! Anna is awesome! *
"Best gym experience I have ever had! All of the trainers are amazing! Extensive knowledge and professionalism. I have been with Body by Design for 3 years and even drive an hour to work out here after I moved. They cannot be beat”
