In the last few months since I started working out weekly with Ray as my personal trainer, I have not only dropped just over 20 lbs, but I have increased my flexibility, improved my posture, and developed superior breathing techniques in addition to the weight loss. I am incredibly grateful to Ray for all of his help in assisting me towards achieving my fitness goals and I look forward to every session because they really are an amazing learning experience.
