Testimonials

Eagan Personal Trainer Testimonial“I worked out with Mark and Fit Twin Cities for about three months at the beginning of the year, it was great for me to get instruction on a ton of different exercises and start building up muscle. The best part is that it got me motivated to work and got me enjoying it so that I’ve continued working out three or four times a week even now, basically a year later. Without Mark showing me how working out can be fun and pushing me, I likely wouldn’t be doing that now. If you are looking for someone to train you, you probably won’t be able to find better personalized instruction than Mark who is very willing and able to tailor his workouts to each clients needs whether you are looking to put on muscle or to drop weight.”

eagan personal trainer testimonial“In a short time, Mark Spurbeck changed my life for the better!  When I first met with him, I explained that I wanted to work out at home, and wanted to somehow combine cardio with lifting and other exercises.  We had ten sessions together where I learned the proper technique for each exercise.  I also learned my limitations and Mark kindly accepted them with no judgment.  He has a great temperament for training people;  he’s patient, uncomplicated, motivational,  and makes the session fun.   After our last session I felt prepared to go home and get to work.  Mark created four different at-home workout  routines, along with how to set up a workout schedule.  After a few workout cycles and some tweaking of my own, I got into the groove.  I didn’t really set any specific goals, but the results are evident and I am very pleased.  My energy and stamina have increased, and flab has turned to non-flab!  There’s still some flab hanging around…if I told you I now had rocking, hard body you’d know I was lying!!  So with Mark’s know-how and excellent training personality and YOUR determination, it can work!  Why should YOU choose Mark Spurbeck for personal training?  

  • Great value for the money
  • Comprehensive knowledge and ability
  • Non-judgmental, supportive training situation

Training with Mark was the best investment I ever made for myself, and I would recommend him to anyone!”

jenny“I know Mark through his Rebel Bootcamp classes.  I went to several more classes after loving the first one, and they each got better!  I was even able to convince my husband, who typically does not like group workouts, to attend a handful of classes with me thanks to Mark’s motivational teaching style.  What makes Mark a great trainer is his ability to adapt each workout to the individual, giving everyone an equal challenge customized to their own fitness abilities.  He applied this to bootcamp classes by showing easier modifications for some, and amping up the difficulty for more advanced participants.  Never once did I leave a class feeling under-challenged, nor did he push me beyond my capabilities.  Finding that perfect balance between the two is what makes Mark a great trainer!”

mollyThis year I made the decision to change. Change my attitude, change my habits, change my health, change my life. After changing jobs, personal relationships, and poor eating habits, the last step in the year of change was to get in shape. I went to many gyms, was taken on numerous gym tours, was shown facilities and equipment, but never felt like I was in the right place. What was missing? Someone who was invested in my goals and my success. After meeting with Mark for the first time, I knew that this was the fit that I was looking for. Mark listened to me. He listened to where I started, my goals, my fears, and my excitement to begin the last leg of the year of change. What Mark understands is that fitness goes far beyond just physical health. What he wants for his clients, ultimately, is what they want for themselves… to be happy, confident, strong and fit.”

Tara and Becky before a mud run “Working out with Mark has been such a great choice towards building a healthy lifestyle.  During the sessions, Mark has fun and new workouts to keep things interesting and to keep me guessing.  He also always finds the exact moment when I need words of encouragement to power through a particularly tough exercise and praise after achieving something great.  Having a personal trainer keeps me accountable for the decisions made outside of our session as well which is just as important!  I highly recommend Mark as a personal trainer – get out there and impress yourself with what you can achieve!”

Mindy and Mike after a Rebel Boot Camp“After having a baby, I needed an extra push to get back in the game, mentally and physically.  Fortunately for me, someone on Facebook mentioned Mark and Fit Twin Cities.  I had never thought about getting a personal trainer, but I decided to give it a shot.  Since working with Mark now for over three months, I’ve lost a few pounds, and gained tone, strength and ENERGY.  I’ve worked one-on-one with Mark both at my own home and at Minnesota Top Team.  He’s worked with my strengths and pushed me through my weaknesses.  I’ve also attended Mark’s rebel bootcamp classes which were not only a hard workout, but extremely fun.  It’s a great way to meet some other like minded individuals who are just trying to better themselves.  I would recommend Mark to anyone, including new moms who need to get back into a healthy groove.”

anne“I woke up one day after thinking I was 25 and I realized I was 47. My old athletic self had gone away and I was a middle aged woman, and was shrinking in height and growing in width. I needed someone to help me change my life, not terrify me into short term results – I had been down that road too many times.  I called and emailed a few other trainers and IF I got a response there just wasn’t any connection. Mark, returned my email quickly and was willing to work with me. That was the first thing that I was sold on. He came to my house and I saw he was as young as he looked in his picture. I got a bit terrified but then we talked for a while and he was open and honest about himself and he really listened to my story and goals and any intimidation I had went away. I felt completely comfortable.  He was mature way past his years.  I have lost 40 pounds since starting training with Mark! He pushes me enough, but  never pushes too far. He motivates me while I’m there and in between our sessions we email each other which keeps the motivation going in between sessions. I would highly recommend Mark as a trainer. I plan on keeping Mark around for a very long time.”

ellenMark takes a holistic approach to training and really cares about the results in the gym but even more about the person and how fitness is impacting their entire life. Mark puts me through some really tough work-outs but we talk about how the fitness has carried over into stress and anxiety management for me as well. He keeps the work-outs fresh and he always is well prepared with a plan and has something new to bring to each session. For me that is so great because I never know what is next so I just work hard in the moment. Mark encourages me – yet challenges me and pushes me to be my best at all times, but I never feel discouraged if I am unable to do something. If I struggle, Mark quickly makes adjustments so I see success but continue to work hard.
 
I have seen significant changes on the scale, in the weight room, and aerobically but most importantly in my life. I am much happier than before I started training, I make healthier food choices and look forward to working out. I have regained my self-confidence and laugh a great deal more than I did before I started working with Mark.
 
I feel really lucky that Mark came into my life when he did. He is truly dedicated to helping others reach their fitness goals. My work with Mark is not done and I look forward to continuing the journey to reach my goals! Thanks Mark for all you do each work-out to help me find success!”

thom“I decided I needed to lose a little weight 6 weeks before my wedding. I wasn’t sure I could make any noticeable change in that amount of time, but Mark rose to the challenge.  Working out when not related to sports has never been my thing, but somehow Mark was able to make it interesting and fun every time. Mark took the time to evaluate my strengths and weaknesses and build a workout plan that fit me. By the time wedding day came I had lost almost 20 lbs and was in noticeably better shape.”

bri_testimonial“What makes Mark a great trainer is his ability to connect with clients, particularly his ability to understand what his clients are going through. I always felt pushed in our sessions, but never felt like I was going to get hurt or that I was being asked to do something that I wasn’t capable of. Mark is focused, determined and truly cares about the people he works with. He remembers what you work on in your sessions and keeps tab on you throughout the week – even on weeks you may not meet. Would I recommend Mark? Absolutely – 100% without a doubt.”
