"Training at Trammell Fitness and Martial Arts has helped me improve physically and mentally. I am constantly challenged and Rich has increased my confidence as well as my conditioning. I do both personal training and karate classes, and I'm addicted to both! Going to the gym is a lot cheaper than a psychologist!"

Debbie Auerbach of Astoria Denistry

"Over that past few years, my workouts with Rich have been very fulfilling. Not only does it give a full body workout, but it is also the best stress and tension reliever next to a massage! I don't mind admitting that I'm a control freak and a thinker: so believe it or not, the boxing drills and techniques work hand in hand with my eagerness to always learn and manage my physique! Lastly, Rich is the only trainer I've had that could keep my attention; once you wrap up one drill he's on to the next one, and the next, so by the time the hour comes, I'm quiet, totally worked out, and ready to get out the door and conquer the world!"
