“Since working with Janet, I have increased my strength and flexibility. She adapts each session to deal with my issues and I have seen a decrease in joint pain in addition to improving my flexibility. She takes a holistic approach in dealing with her clients, making suggestions for better health, diet and fitness. She motivates the unmotivated!“
– Chuck Stern
“I have been working out with Ethan for over a year now. His passion for health and fitness shows in his enthusiasm day in and day out. I prefer full body high intensity interval training and he delivers. The variety of his routines have kept me on track with my goals. He is always energetic and positive—great to train with!“
– Stuart Wash
“My Trainer, Janet McMullin, has really helped me change my life! When I started training at age 69, I had two knee replacements, poor posture and flabby abdominal muscles. But what really drove me to personal training was my lack of balance and my daily back pain. I had read in studies that weight resistance training led to better results than shots in the back. Consistent training with Janet for over 2 years has transformed my body’s functioning. I was the lady the airlines met at a ramp with a wheelchair. Last week I went from A concourse to C46 in Atlanta, moving fast, with two bags in 27 minutes! No wheelchair!
People say I’ve lost weight. That’s not true, but I have lost 2 dress sizes. I have a new, more active, functional and safer life! Thank you Janet!“

“I have been working out with Joey a little over a year. Prior to coming here I had worked with a trainer at another facility for about 15 years. I quickly began to notice a lot of differences. The level of Joey's knowledge far surpasses my other trainer. I have found that a personal trainer is the only way I can consistently work out. A gym setting makes it too easy not to go when I feel something more important has come up. Also this enables me to work correctly and safely. High praise is due because Brian Cole Personal Training Associates was actually recommended to me by another fitness facility.“
– Bob Murphy
“I am a senior citizen, who after many years of caring for others and neglecting myself, decided to put myself first. My goals were simple: more energy, strength and balance. Weight loss was also important, but not the top priority. Brian Cole Personal Training Associates has such knowledgeable Trainers. Before starting a specific program, they evaluated my personal needs and goals. (This never happens in group classes). In 7+ years I have accomplished so much.
- I can play 18 holes of golf without huffing and puffing.
- I no longer stumble and fall from poor balance.
- I am stronger at age 69 than I was when much younger.
- And my favorite...I no longer need to sit or lean against furniture to remove my shoes or slacks!
My quality of life has improved because of the professionalism, quality and care of my Trainers. Although I have worked with Janet McMullin and Wendy Stephens, I have observed others and would work with any person Brian hires. Quality...Professionalism...Caring...and Friends.“
– Brenda Epes
“Stephen has been an excellent resource for me in developing a physical fitness program and proper dietary regimen. I have worked with several trainers over the years but I give Stephen my Highest recommendation!“
– Dorothy Burch
“Considerate of one’s limitations but gently encouraging—stretching those limitations to new strength, flexibility and balancing heights! Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere which makes the hard work almost fun!“
– Pamela Martin
“Stephen Sibert’s positive and encouraging approach has enabled both of us to regain our physical well being after surgery. His range of exercises ensures that we are continually challenged to improve.“
– Pat and Willard Hoskins
“Since going to Brian Cole Personal Training Associates the results are great. Prior to working out with Brian I used to go to the gym 4-5 times a week for years. I currently go 2 times per week with much better results. I've saved time and am aware of improvements physically, personally and professionally!“
– Tony Reed
“I started training with Ethan seven months ago and we have been working on getting my Mom Bod back in shape. He is extremely knowledgeable, has taught me a lot about exercising safely, is encouraging and excited for even the smallest improvements and makes me want to keep coming back!“
– Ann Trotter
“When I started working with Personal Training Associates for rehab of a severe shoulder injury, I expected to work for six months or so. I’ve been working out for about six years now and the benefits are still happening. Improvements in my overall fitness including getting out of bed without pain and stiffness and fewer episodes of back pain, make me feel 10 years younger. No one can truly understand the benefits of resistance training unless they’ve done it—especially those over 40 years old.“
– Michael Gross, DVM
“A truly personalized exercise program with Stephen has helped me prepare for and recover from knee replacement surgery as well as strengthening all areas of my body.“
– Charles Wornom
“Joey Wallen is my trainer. He works from a client-specific agenda to address weaknesses and develop individual programs. He took a basket case when he agreed to help me. I am a senior person with age-related issues and particular physical problems. Or, I was! I was faced with increasing disabilities which prevented simple daily personal tasks (get in/out of tub, tuck shirttail into jeans, brush hair, lift pots, carry handbag, climb stairs, rise from chair...). Joey designed a way forward beginning with simple moves and unsophisticated props. Within six months, noticeable improvements and ease of motion were obvious. Two years into the effort, new and more ambitious goals have continuously been advanced.“
– Diana Freeman
“After months of suggesting we need to start a regular scheduled workout period, my wife gave me a non-refundable one-year workout program with Personal Training Associates. Knowing how I feel about the dollar, she knew she had me. Eight years ago to date, our ‘feel better with Wendy’ began.“
– Tom Hunnicutt
“Unfortunately I took a fall February 2017 which resulted in a broken neck. But fortunately after two surgeries, physical therapy, and my doctor's approval, I was able to start working with Stephen Sibert at Personal Training Associates in July 2017. He has helped me regain strength, stamina and to feel better about myself. I am back to normal in a few short months and am actually enjoying my workouts.“
– Jeri W. Greene
“Wendy is a wonderful trainer and a marvelous friend who cares about her clients. I am better off because of her and look forward to my workouts.
– Alan Diamonstein
“My twice-weekly sessions with Wendy are one of the most beneficial regular events in my life. I always leave feeling better than when I came in after the varied protocol she puts me through.
– Saint Lee
“I’ve learned that building muscle can definitely influence the aging process and that you can get stronger as you get older. The training is intense but enjoyable. Besides the strength benefits, there are measurable positive changes to your overall health. The knowledge and the benefits are things all individuals from all age groups should experience.
– Richard B. Chance, D.V.M.
“Ethan has been fantastic to work with. The training has helped tremendously with ongoing back and knee pain. After just a few months of targeted training I was pain free! He is always upbeat and enthusiastic so I am always challenged.“
– Christine Conrad
