Another 5-star review for Body by Design

Coming to BBD is the best thing I have ever done for myself. They strike a perfect balance between accountability and support. Their guidance allows me to only focus on getting stronger, healthier, and leaner. It makes a difference to train with professionals who not only understands technique but received a degree to better understand the physiology of the body… I have seen more results in 3 months with Mario than I have in 10  years of trying to train on my own.

A 5-star review for Joe Augustine and Body by Design

When I relocated to Raleigh last year, I never thought I would find a personal trainer who rivaled the one I’d been training with in New York City. I can tell you that Joe and his trainers are the best in the business and are knowledgeable, caring, and a lot of fun!  Working with a trainer is as much about the relationship as the routine, and there is someone for everyone at BBD.  Lastly, it’s affordable and worth every penny.

You can't change your age but you can change HOW you age - and we are living proof of that. We came to Body by Design in our late 60's two years ago hoping to loose a few pounds and maybe get a little stronger. What we got was a new way of life! We now look and feel at least 10 years younger and we now both compete in athletic events, something we didn't even do in our 20s! And if we can do it, anyone can...anyone that gets the help of Joe and his team at BBD!

Client gives Body by Design personal training a 5-star review

I know the importance of being healthy, but at age 38 I realized I was far from healthy. My cholesterol was high, my endurance was low, and I had put on nearly 30 pounds. I tried to get fit on my own, but things would come up at work…at home…with friends…then I'd need to start over again. Then I heard about Body by Design and personal training was exactly what I needed! They trained my body AND my mind. I’ve never looked or felt better thanks to Body by Design!

Busy mom gives 5 stars to Body by Design

I used to model, but after I had my beautiful boy, I thought my body was gone forever.  I tried everything -diet plans, group exercise, and other personal trainers…but nothing worked. Then a new friend told me about Joe and Body by Design. Working with Joe has made all the difference in the world. I’ve dropped my 40 pounds of baby fat”, and for the first time in my life I have really toned and defined muscles too! Oh, and I can model again! Thanks BBD!

Athlete gives Body by Design 5 stars

I have been an athlete and have worked out most of my life, but my trainers at Body by Design continue to challenge me in my workouts and I have never been more fit. They tailor workouts for each individual and will not march anyone down the wrong path with fads like crossfit or short-term fixes like starvation diets. They are truly interested in making a positive impact on their clients' lives - for the rest of their lives.
