Morning classes with Michael

Never hard to get up in the morning to attend Michael’s classes. He’s energizing with his great music, his contagious laugh and his smile. The ambiance is great and the training and exercises are doing the job! In few sessions you will feel it! Michael is very competent, you work out hard but always feel that he’s in control and knows what he’s doing. By far the best training classes ever I’ve assisted to. A must++++++

They made me love the gym again THT trainer Costa

Amazing staff ..friendly, and attentive . They form programs to your needs. I train with them at Gold’s Gym Laval. I lost 20lbs in 3 months with the help of their trainer Costa. He listened to my concerns, health issues and we worked to improve. Very satisfied customer. They made me love the gym again.

A+ all the way

A+ all the way. I am currently training at the Gold’s gym Laval and I absolutely love it. I live in DDO and I travel to this Gym specifically. I walk in and don’t feel intimidated. People there go to train, and are about their health and getting in shape… not socializing around. I have seen people of all ages, Men and woman, which is refreshing. The staff is super friendly, always greeting me and others with a smile. They are always able and willing to help and answer any questions if need be. The trainers Kelly and Costa are very knowledgeable, and reliable. They listen to their clients wa

Michael’s Functional cardio class works out every part of your body. Even parts you did not know existed! He is attentive to students with injuries, very technical and makes us give our 100%. Thank you Michael for very intense but very satisfying classes.

Margaret aka. the Energizer Bunny!

I have been in Margaret’s running classes for the last 5 years and she makes working out hard fun! Every class is different: elastics, exercise balls, free weights, weight bar… it never gets boring! Thank you Margaret for keeping us in shape!

Joelle

Many thanks Margaret!

It’s a pleasure to train with you Margaret! After only a few months, I feel stronger, more energetic, and generally more confident in my physical abilities! Your challenging and varied workouts find the right balance between pushing me out of my comfort zone and making sure that I continue to have fun throughout. Thanks for always bringing your good humor and for sharing your “can do” attitude.

St-Lambert Classes with Michael

I met Michael this winter when attending a class he was giving for the city of St-Lambert. I automatically loved his energy, smile and dynamism. His exercices were exactly what I needed, a good level of difficulty with a nice balance of cardio and weights. I found out he was also giving classes early in the morning with THT. I decided to register twice a week. I REALLY love his classes and know that I work hard without any risks of injury. Michael is bubbly like a glass of champagne! His classes are a great way to start my day. Keep up the good work Michael!

Help achieving my Dream

For many years I’ve dreamt of being able to run a trail marathon. I wanted to succeed before I turned 50 but I wasn’t really sure how to do it or how to remain injury-free. With Margaret’s professional expertise, experience as a runner and her guidance I’m finally on that path of getting back into shape and being ready to run my first trail run in a couple of weeks. The variation in types of exercises, in equipment and her lead to take me outside and onto the Mont-Royal trails has been so enjoyable and fun. Thank you Margaret for being such a great partner/guide and ensuring I succeed!

I have been with THT for a few years and have enjoyed working out with all the trainers I have worked with! Love the convenience and the personalized workouts!

Special thanks to Gold's VSL THT PT Mike Taheri and Petr

I used to be somebody who did pretty high level sports. I gained a lot of weight in the last years. I was not able to keep my physique form even if I was training almost five times a week. When I started going to Gold’s gym, I was 205 pounds in the last 3 months I lost 30 pounds. Mike who is my personal THT trainer, taught me how to get the discipline and the dedication that I used to have. This program allows me to understand how my body reacts to food and I am making healthier choices now. Thanks to Mike and Peter who pushed me beyond my limits every time that I stepped into the gym.

Mona the Miracle Worker

Mona has been training me now for 9 sessions now. I do not like exercise at all but she has been very motivational in her approach and I find myself looking forward to her visits. I am finding great improvement in my mobility issues and would highly recommend Mona as a trainer for people who have injuries to deal with. Thanks to THT for ongoing support.

Wonderful experience with Nick

I have been training with Nick since mid-August and it has been a fabulous experience. Nick is dedicated to making the work-out challenging, interesting, dynamic and most of all fun. He is encouraging, supportive and makes you want to get up before the sun to work out! The sessions are never the same and that keeps it interesting, Nick always has something new to throw at you (it was once literally a 20lb ball that he threw at me!) and that keeps me interested and focused. I feel better, I have more energy and I am starting to see results and others are too! Great job Nick! Recommend!

My Summer Training!

Shout out to both Michael and Nikos for being my summer trainers. Both gentlemen proved to be experienced, versatile and great motivators. They follow up on their programs, ask how you are feeling and will kick you into gear! They adapt the exercise to you and really emphasize proper technique. Total Home Training has been a true personable company right from the first telephone call I had with Christine. No matter what your level of fitness is, THT will give you the attention and encouragement to get it done and feel great! Thank you!

Silvia (first time ‘Trainee’)

Even those with a disability can train!

Despite having certain physical limitations, I have learned that I too can train and stay strong. My trainer Nikos G. is always mindful of what I should and shouldn’t do with my total knee replacement, and chooses appropriate alternatives when necessary so that I don’t get injured. A disability is not an excuse, it’s simply a fact of someone’s life. Everyone can get back into shape and be healthier. Thank you Nikos and much future success to you and THT!

Andrea Cleary

Karine

After three children and a crazy work schedule, the pounds just accumulated! I joined THT at the end of May, and I have been training with Nick Psillis for over two months. My main goal was to get healthy, more energetic and of course get back to my good old size! Nick is fantastic, always smiling, and patient and making sure I give it my best. Thanks to his constant support and fitness routines, I have lost over 15 pounds, and found a great way to reduce my stress level. Thank you.

Thank you Nick!

Many thanks to Kyle Copeland

Kyle has been my trainer for several weeks now and already I can see a difference in my core strength. I also have just a much better feeling of well being. I am a senior and want to keep healthy.

He makes me feel I can accomplish all my goals and encourages me all along the way.

Thanks Kyle

Great training! Thank you, Louis.

After doing five training sessions with you, I am more than excited to say that my abs are coming back! Thank you, Louis. You are a great train who is able to incorporates martial arts in day-to-day workout effectively. Moreover, you also gave me a bunch of tips for me to attain my goal. Despite my laziness sometimes, you always encouraged me to go to workout out constantly and regularly. Looking forward to doing more trainings with you!

Lu Huang

Very happy with our THT training and results.

Hello Sam,

Just letting you know that we have enjoyed our sessions and are very happy with our THT training and results. We are more energetic, and in better shape, which is what we wanted. Mostly, this has motivated us to keep up our physical activities, and has changed our lifestyle. We owe many thanks to Patrick our THT trainer, he has kept us moving and is very inspiring, he knows when to push us and when to re-assess. He has kept us motivated and in our routine, we had never had a personal trainer before, but he has done a great job, our hats off to him.

Teresa and John

Thank you Nikos

After many years of not going to the gym for fear of getting hurt, I decided at nearly 60 yrs young it was time to think about my well-being and physical condition. Sam was honest but never making me feel like it would be impossible to get back into shape. Then comes Nikos, my personal trainer. Well talk about making me do things I never thought I could. After each session I feel like a new person. It is only the beginning, but I see myself improving my posture and pushing myself into doing more than I did before. A big thank you!!!

Josie Tobia

Mona is a great trainer

Mona has been my trainer for several months and I couldn’t be happier. The routines change each week, and I look forward to each session (I used to hate exercising ). She always keeps in touch and offers the scheduling flexibility that I need because of my busy lifestyle.

Highly recommend these people!

Very professional and knowledgeable team of trainers. My trainer Genevieve is amazing and makes the workout fun yet you feel it the next day:))) These are the people to use if you really want to get in shape!

FREE Birthday training session from THT® TEAM

Thank you very much Margaret. That’s very kind from you and THT. And I think you guys have a big part of the success for my mother’s physical condition improvement. Since she felt in february 2014, her physical condition is way better, she is able to follow us in almost all of our activities. She had wonderful Christmas hollidays; we went to see Nutcraker, we spent the Christmas day at friend’s house and we went to Quebec city visit an old friend of her for new Years eve./p>

Thumb up to My THT® trainer

I have been training with My THT® trainer for a few months now. I continue to be impressed by her passion and enthusiasm towards fitness and her genuine caring for her clients. Nothing is ever too much trouble for her and she is always willing to adapt the program to accommodate individual strengths and weaknesses. While I still can’t say I enjoy working out, I definitely miss it the days I don’t have it.

Margaret Britton has changed me!

I just want to say a huge Thank you to Margaret my trainer for the last year. I am truly grateful have me her. She has changed me mentally and physically. I was someone who has never done any form of exercise or played any sport. I was always the spectator in my family’s life cheering them on. She has taught me to be a runner. With her help I did my first half marathon, something I have never even thought of doing myself.and my family was there to cheer me on. How amazing is that. Margaret you are the best. I can’t wait to see what else is in store for me. Thank you thank you thank you

Many thanks to THT for a life changing experience. My extended thanks go out to my trainer, Michael Dere, who has taken me to a healthy lifestyle I never thought imaginable.

His professional and caring “keep it up” attitude made it so enjoyable. Great job!

My experience with THT

For 2 years I had treatments from physiotherapists, acupuncture, water walking, physiatrist, spinal injection of cortisone and finally a long spell with a chiropractor. All this to ease the pain in my leg from the sciatic nerve and disc problems. I thought I had covered all the avenues that might help me until I heard of home trainers. The internet found you and now I am so much better from the training given by THMargaret Britton. She is jolly, inventive and effectual. I no longer require a walker and can walk longer distances without pain. This has been my experience with THT. Thank you

Doreen Turner

My fitness instructor Marie-Anne is a God send

I moved to Montreal in March of this year (2013) from Ireland and was used to my home fitness regime back home. I put on a lot if weight due to the stress of moving and being out of my comfort zone. I felt really down and needed a boost.

I found THT on line from a google search and called up Christine who sent Sam out to assess my fitness. He started me on training sessions in the comfort of my own home and I haven’t looked back since! My weight loss has been dramatic, I’m fitting into my old clothes again and I feel amazing and toned.

My fitness instructed Marie-Anne is a god send, I am going to miss her greatly! Thanks guys, you’ve been amazing! 🙂 I’ll be in touch in the new year 🙂

It is a privilege to write a letter of recommendation for Mr. Sam Maniatis.

It is a privilege to write a letter of recommendation for Mr. Sam Maniatis. I have been a client of Mr. Maniatis since November 2007 and also have the opportunity to observe his interactions with some of his clients. He demonstrates excellent assessment skills and adjusts his coaching to the individual’s strengths and weaknesses. He is caring, supportive and always positive in his coaching. Sam is self-directed learner, expressing interest in current research and development in his field and frequently attends conferences and workshops in order to improve his knowledge and skills. He is liked and respected by his colleagues as well as his clients. Consequently, I have no reservations in submitting this reference. If I can be of further assistance, please fell free to contact me. Sincerely,

M. B.

Marc was always on the ball and his unwavering support and commitment to his clients gave me the confidence I was lacking

I just had to write a comment about what a great experience it has been training with such a professional like Marc and THT. I had been wanting for a very long time to adopt a healthier lifestyle and with two unused gym memberships under my belt and a clothes-hanger/elliptical machine at home I was feeling pretty defeated. I took what little courage I had left and as much will power I could muster to call THT and get a trainer. I am so thankful of Christine’s quick and friendly response to my call, Sam’s well informed and thorough assessment which conveyed a genuine desire to help, and ultimately to Marc’s knowledge, professionalism and enthusiasm throughout our training sessions. Marc was always on the ball and his unwavering support and commitment to his clients gave me the confidence I was lacking and enabled me to finally achieve my goal. Thanks!!!

I would recommend this company to anyone who wants results.

After my Total Knee Replacement I needed to continue my physiotherapy. The CLSC program from the hospital was only 5 weeks. I heard the advertisement on the radio for THT . I immediately called and left a message . I was called back that very day and was so impressed with the interest and desire to fill my needs with my rehabilitation. Sam did the introduction class with me and knew just how to tailor my needs and his expertise in making a good fulfilling program for me. He matched me up with Tessa, an excellent fun loving trainer. My progress with in the 20 weeks were outstanding.. I would recommend this company to anyone who wants results. They treated me with respect, were on time with appointments > Just an over all 100% great experience. Thanks so much .. Sam, Christine and Tessa xo Emily Wetmore.

I just wanted to thank you once again for being such a great instructor...

Hi Sam! I hope this email finds you well. I just wanted to thank you once again for being such a great instructor, your teaching method is to be applauded (not to mention your patience!) You have inspired me to reach for yet another goal – to become a home trainer. I love the idea and I will be signing up for your home training course in April. I have also discovered that at my age I have to be realistic about how long I can actually work as a personal fitness trainer… once again you made me realize that I CAN stay in the fitness industry for many years to come because I can then go to the next level which would be to teach others how to become personal fitness trainers. Thanks again for your inspiration! 🙂

You demystified such complex notions...

Dear Sam; It met you in early 2005 when you were teaching the Phase 3 of the YMCA FIT program. I surmised that you were Quebec’s best trainer. As you know, I have often told you that I wanted to be an exceptional trainer like you. I have followed your presentations very closely since 2005. I attended your MTL Can-Fit-Pro presentation in February 2006 which was very good. Your presentation June 16th, 2007 was outstanding; innovative, but obviously based on years of experience in the training trenches. It employed cutting edge information and state of the art training techniques. This workshop provided what we most need as trainers to completely and effectively train a de-conditioned client IN THEIR HOME. Moreover, you demystified such complex notions as (RNT) reactive, neuro-muscular training while successfully debunking many training myths prevalent in the fitness industry today. With your interactive hands-on practical approach you demonstrated to all of the trainers present how we should be training our clients. I came away feeling that I had progressed to a new level as a trainer. This Workshop is a must for all personal trainers. It was a GREAT pleasure!

Gary Pitts

Testimonial with Chris-Ann Nakis

Sam Maniatis and the amazing team at Total Home Training

I’ve been working with Sam Maniatis and the amazing team at Total Home Training for about a year and a half now. The difference is in how I feel…my core strength, my balance and my ability to easily handle the day to day events we’ve all taken for granted over the early years of our youth. The passage of time changes our abilities…although we hate to admit it! Under the expert guidance and care of Sam and his experienced THT team, I am able to confidently handle the physical changes this new chapter of my life brings me. Do I recommend Sam and the Total Home Training Team no matter what
