I started training with Chris at Aum Training Center after someone recommended Chris to me.  I hated working out and eating correctly.  Chris met with me and we discussed my goals.  He made suggestions relative to changing my diet and we committed to start training together.  After four months, I am down almost 22 pounds and I feel much better about myself.  Chris has taught me about working out and I no longer feel awkward when at the gym.  Chris is so patient with me and encouraging.  I couldn't more highly recommend a personal fitness coach!

I have been training at Aum Training Center since January 2016, and I love it!  Chris is knowledgeable, patient, encouraging, and most of all, listens.

I came to the center a few months before turning 60, feeling lethargic and taking multiple medications to relieve the pain in my joints.  Four months after beginning my training at Aum, I lost nearly 40 pounds and the pain in my joints is now gone. I feel better than I have in years and I’ve even discontinued taking several medications (under the approval of my doctor).  It’s great to feel healthy and strong again!

I initially came to the Aum Center six months ago to get medical advice for my hypothyroid, then I decided to see what Aum Training Center was all about. I was currently seeing a trainer on a weekly basis at one of the best gyms in Boston and was not completely 100% about how things were going. My first session with Chris- I was sold. He did all these tests-- body fat, etc. We looked at my stats and made some serious goals. Our sessions are tough. He pushes me like no other trainer has pushed me. He gets me in the zone, and I'm able to do things that surprise me every session. What I like most about Chris is how passionate he is about his clients' success. He gets just as excited as I do! It's awesome. This type of support just makes me want to work harder. I have lost inches off my waist, and my body fat percentage has gone down like crazy!! When we're not working out together, I have a super detailed training plan that I follow for weight training and cardio. Every month he switches it up based on our goals. He's also created a custom nutrition plan for me. I've made major changes to my diet, and I've never felt better.

I found out about Aum Training Center through a friend, Sashya, who wanted to work out together.  We go twice a week, listen to some awesome music, and push our limits every time. Chris has this energy that is super contagious. What distinguishes Chris from other personal trainers I've worked with previously is that he helps you with nutrition, establishing new habits, designing strategies for managing stress, and planning ahead on these matters. I have lost 20 pounds over 4 months, and I’ve gained a tremendous amount of energy and  a more positive attitude. I look forward to my sessions because they are fun with a friend and a peppy, strong, happy-go-lucky yet a very demanding trainer, who has only one goal for you - progress every week. It’s been a fun ride and I love having this as part of my life.

Transformative.  "W"holistic.  Personalized.

Chris and the Aum Training Center model re-define an approach to wellness that goes far beyond the experience of a 'training session' to include personalized support around the entire training experience - nutritional support, personalized “on-the-go” travel workouts, motivational coaching, and more.  For someone otherwise intimidated by training, the experience has given me a confidence and commitment to my own physical well-being that had never existed prior to my time at Aum. The training delivers tremendous results and the workouts are comprehensive, tailored not just to the individual, but the individual's place in their wellness journey.  As a physician, I cannot more highly recommend Chris and Aum Training Center as a catalyst for transformative, 'w'holistic, and personalized change in my own life.
