Check out some of my other latest reviews from everyday people that decided to hire Dr. Phil as their Philadelphia Personal Trainer!

Personal Training review from Mr. March King of Prussia area came to me with shoulder difficulties and in just a few sessions 

Dr. Phil is not just a trainer

“I prefer to use his professional title, Dr.Phil, as he is not just a trainer, he understands body physics. Doing an excellent job with my rehab needs for my shoulders.. Helping me to understand right from wrong when it come to muscle building.”

“As I said there is a difference between a “certified trainer” and a Doctor of exercise science and medical rehab. ” 

I’m 64 and haven’t been to a gym in years. I’m not trying to be a model just lose some weight and get healthy. I was really nervous my first season about what I’d be able to do and how I would be looked at being overweight and out of shape. Phil made me feel comfortable from the very beginning. He is very patient and encouraging. Phil started me on things that I was able to do. The workout is interesting and the time flies. He makes me feel like I’m not actually as bad as I think I am and that I CAN DO THIS. I’m really glad I (finally) got started.” Lucky R. Philadelphia.

“Phil is fantastic! He has been really great to work with. I have been dealing with chronic pain and lack of diagnosis for a year. With Phil’s help I am getting stronger in spite of not being able to do weight-bearing exercises. I really appreciate how he has catered the program to work with my body’s limitations. He is a great motivator and I am always amazed at much I accomplish in just an hour.” Christine L. Northeast Philadelphia.

“Phil was very professional,courteous and very helpful. His experience and knowledge shows through his vast education . I have had trainers before but in just a short time I realized his experience and knowledge are above anything ive ever seen and yet he’s humble
He helped me get off of medicine for various issues and his system is like no other.
If you want an experienced respectful and exceptionally knowledgeable trainer contact him. Not all trainers are the same and it’s very evident in this case.”

Phil helped me get my life back when modern medicine and others didn’t.
I had low back issues and various injuries and needed a trainer to understand that.

Thanks dr phil” Carol C
