I have had Omar for a trainer for the past two years and have seen great results he is very skilled at what he does.
"I've had the great opportunity to train with Omar and can definitely attest to his knowledge and expertise in the fitness field.
Omar understands and is keenly aware of the type of training most suited to his client's specific requirements and what motivates them to succeed and by combining those factors for each client he is able to assist them in generating great results.
I would highly recommend Formula4 to anyone desiring a healthier lifestyle. Great facilities to train in as well."
"My name is Stephanie, I am 34 years old, married with 2 children. My personal trainer is Omar Ali, President and Founder of Formula4 Fitness. I have a few good reasons why I am a member of Formula4 and I would like to share them with you. Not a long story but a "snapshot" of my life.
A few years ago, my parents were both diagnosed with terminal cancer, both in their early 50's. My mother lost her battle with pancreatic cancer. I had given birth to my second child, a son, a week before. Needless to say, the physical and emotional stress from just having a baby and losing my mother was overwhelming. I realized how fragile life can be and how precious it is all at the same time. It was at that point, I knew I needed to make some healthy changes, to do all I could not to share the same fate and be around as long as possible for my family and loved ones. Formula4 has guided me to do just that by teaching me about proper nutrition, living a healthy lifestyle and sticking to it, and I've even learned a little about myself! That I am stronger than I ever imagined! Not just physically but mentally too! It has given me a positive release from the stresses of everyday life.
So for me, being a member of Formula4 is not just about looking my best and feeling fantastic (although that is wonderful too!). It's about reshaping my life's path to get the most out of it. So many of us take our health for granted, I believe it's just human nature to do that. I'm not perfect at it but, if nothing else, I've learned to be more conscious about how I treat my body and what goes into it. I think that's really what matters in the long run.
"Thank you Omar" for always keeping me accountable when I stumble and never giving up on me or what I am capable of accomplishing in the gym!! You make it fun to train and I always look forward to our sessions!"
"I've been training at Formula4 since Feb 15th and not only am I'm blown away by my results but also with the level of expertise that I'm blessed to work with everyday. One of the reasons why I chose Formula4 over any other trainer in the area is because of the one on one training in a private gym where you don't have to fight over muscle heads to use the equipment (no offense muscle heads). For a woman this is huge as many of us feel intimidated when we are competing in a gym full of men. The main reason I chose Formula4 however was because I instantly felt a connection to both Omar and Eric. I felt like I was a friend even though we were strangers. Their commitment to my success is unwavering, their encouragement is empowering and I am constantly being challenged to push beyond what I think I am capable of. I'm not only building muscle but also confidence, drive, work ethic and character. On a more personal note, from the first time I met Omar, I felt like he truly cared about me and wanted to help me reach my goals. I have never felt like a client, but rather part of the Formula4 family. I am extremely blessed to be working with true experts and I know I'm in very capable hands."
"When I first met Omar, I was GM of the Brookside Nubody's (now GoodLife) Fitness Club. I was looking for an experienced Personal Trainer that was eager to come in and start up his/her business from scratch. Within five minutes of meeting Omar Ali, I knew he was the right fit for my team. He had a wealth of experience and knowledge and more importantly he had that entrepreneurial spirit that I was looking for.
Along with his abilities and knowledge as a trainer, Omar possesses a trusting and warm character which makes him very easy to talk to and in his industry it's very important for a trainer to hear what their clients are saying and also that the trainer's clients feel that they can communicate openly and honestly with their trainer.
Omar has followed his dream and is now Owner and President of Formula4 Fitness. I would strongly recommend Omar as a Personal Trainer and I would encourage anyone of any sex, shape or age to contact him ASAP for a free assessment. If you're ready to make positive fitness related changes in your life than Omar is the man to see!"
"What can I say about Omar? He is best described as a professional. I have tried personal training several times and have not remained committed, and as a result achieved no results. Since I began working with Omar and his team, I am getting results and I am excited about every session scheduled.
Personal training is flooded with people who claim to be trainers but provide a cook book approach for their clients. The expertise that Omar brings allows him to custom make the program and more importantly keep clients motivated. It is all about results and he ensures his clients get those results.
Personal training is not a luxury, it is a necessity. I would strongly recommend Formula4 Fitness for your personal training needs."
"After having my second baby I decided I was going to set a goal for myself. I wanted to get into the best shape of my life both physically and mentally. From the initial meeting and consultation with Omar and Eric I know that these two individuals would help me reach my goal, but am shocked that it has only taken 3 months! I am smaller now then I have ever been in my whole life! There is no greater feeling then trying on a pair of jeans that have sat in my closet for 3 years and finding them too big!
Every training session is a challenge which the Formula4 team motivates me to finish. I leave the gym every day feeling a sense of accomplishment and a huge boost to my self confidence. These past 3 months have been such an awesome experience and I am anxious to see what is to come in the next 3!
Huge thanks to the Formula4 team for "transforming" me into the person I always wanted to be."
"I have had the privilege of training with Omar and his team at Formula4 for a little over a year and to say I am pleasantly surprised by the results would be an understatement. Spending time in gyms over the years and watching different approaches to personal training had me convinced that it was not for me but I decided to give it a try after talking to Omar and I am glad I did.
Omar's knowledge and the dedication he and his team have for their clients is like nothing I have ever seen before. Because of this, the guidance received at Formula4 should be described as PERSONALIZED training rather than personal training. Each member of the Formula4 "family" receives attention, training and nutritional advice based on their individual circumstances and goals. This not only creates an atmosphere everyone is comfortable in, it also ensures that everyone reaches their potential. It can be seen every time you enter Formula4.
The Formula4 way is so refreshing and the results so rewarding, I would recommend to anyone that they should become part of the Formula4 Family."
"In December 2010 I turned 50 (gasp). How did this happen? One day I'm young, the next I'm a card carrying AARP member. I didn't feel old but I didn't want to get old either so I did some research , read a lot of books and found a quirky gem of a book called "Younger Next Year for Women". It affirmed what I already knew in my heart -- you have to exercise to stay young both physically and mentally. I learned that the ideal exercise recipe is quite precise – exercise 6 days a week for the rest of your life – do serious aerobic exercise 4 days a week and do serious strength training 2 days a week. The cardio improves your circulation, the strength training fools your body into thinking it's young. (you have to read the book to see how that works). I decided the time was now to follow through on the advice. But I had a big problem: I never did strength training before. I never used those machines or dumbbells. I was afraid of making a big fool of myself or doing it wrong and getting all lopsided or injuring myself and I did not want masculine muscles but alas, I wanted to stay vital more than anything. So I started looking for a small gym whose focus was one-on-one strength training. I found Formula4 Fitness. I had read that the owner had loyal clientele from all age groups and that a 60 year old man was boasting about being in the best shape that he had been in years. Hey, so this wasn't a scary muscle shop, this was a special gym geared for my needs. I checked out the gym, it had everything I needed...it was small and personal and had all the traditional cardio equipment and weight equipment. There would be no sign up sheets and waiting to use the equipment and the owner was very welcoming (but he "looked" like he seriously knew what he was doing.) I was comfortable from the start. My first lesson was January 18, 2011 and I've been a faithful Formula4 gym rat ever since. I literally look forward to the challenges of a well-designed workout and I feel the difference, physically and mentally. Formula4 was a great choice for me and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to take control of how they will age. It's quite the facility.
PS By the way, women don't get big muscles because we don't have the right mix of hormones. All that happens is that you get leaner and toned. Now who wouldn't want that?"
Over the years I have had the good fortune to compete in national and international levels of sport. It became apparent to me early on that I could only be my personal best if I had the best coaching or training within my reach. This lead me to training with many national champions, one world champion and his coach, two Olympic coaches and a career coach of professional athletes. While I am no longer a competitive athlete, I maintain the approach that to be MY best, I need the best coaching available to me. I believe I have found that level of excellence at Formula4 and have had great personal success with training there.
"Like a lot of other people, I have always struggled to lose weight and keep it off. For years I have tried diets and working out at gyms but I was never able to achieve goals that I set for myself. That all changed since I met Omar. I have known Omar for more than three years and have trained exclusively with him at Formula4 for the last year. I have accomplished more fitness goals in the last 12 months than I have ever accomplished in the past and that's even working with other personal trainers. I can proudly say that I am below my goal weight, and more, I am keeping the weight off. All thanks to Omar!
Omar is not your typical personal trainer! He takes the time to listen and discuss your goals and then he establishes a personalized training plan to meet your needs. He is extremely dedicated to helping his clients understand the proper way to becoming fit and healthy. He teaches you how to master the proper techniques when it comes to strength training and then combines that with extensive nutrition advice for a more complete fitness solution. This combination is priceless and the evidence can be seen in all of the accomplishments that Formula4 clients have achieved."
