Tom Laudano, Aquatic Pool & Spa Services:
In the last 15 years I’ve had a few personal trainers and also joined a couple training facilities. All of them were non productive for me except one that I joined recently and that’s Results Plus of Hamden, CT. I say this for several reasons. My wife & I own our own business, and we are hands on just like owners Dave & Krista Parise. The entire staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable with nutrition and fitness, which makes the sessions fun and successful. After being there for two months I feel better mentally and physically, I think more clearly, I eat better, I have lost weight and gained muscle in the short time being there. It’s exciting to see a change so quickly especially being 51 years old. I truly have to say I enjoy going to Results Plus thanks to Dave, Krista and the entire 13 qualified personal trainers. Thank you for pushing me when I didn’t think I could go any further.
Dr. Richard Diana, Connecticut Orthopaedic Specialists:
Training for athletic performance has evolved considerably over the last 1/2 century. As a former NFLer (Miami Dolphins 1982-3) who lived through the archaic high-risk years of “benching and squatting” and as a present day sports medicine orthopaedic surgeon, I know the toll inappropriate training can have on the human body. Fast forward to 2012 and cutting edge athletic training is radically different from the past. Training techniques are intimately coupled to risk benefit analysis in order to help athletes get strong, fast and stay safe.
A well-conditioned, buffed athlete on the verge of injury is exactly what we are trying to avoid. And this is the perfect segue for me to introduce Dave Parise, an experienced strength and conditioning trainer who I have known professionally for over 20 years. Dave is the antithesis to the “bench, clean and squat” trainers of the years past. He is meticulous in his attention to training techniques and a staunch believer in applying risk benefit analysis to the goals of individual athletes. Maintaining flexibility while improving ballistic strength and reaction time is his forte. And he does this while keeping athletes free from training related injuries.
I have lectured as a sports medicine orthopaedic surgeon at Dave’s Training Center and I have trained with Dave on many occasions. I have also seen his expertise work with athletes rehabilitating from orthopaedic surgery. Dave is one of those unique trainers who believes in efficient, safe training and has the science background to use state of the art techniques to back up his recommendations. I believe Dave’s expertise and people skills would work well for professional athletes.
Brian, D.D.S., M.S.:
First of all, I want to thank you and your staff for what has been to this point such an awesome experience! As you may know, I am an exercise and sports enthusiast and have always made working out and eating right a part of my daily life as opposed to a side bar. Coming from a background of working out, collegiate sports and other sports related activity for 25 years, I realized quickly after one visit with you guys that I never really learned the proper way to train both in a functional, strength and power manner. I can also say without reservation that there is no workout facility that can compare to what you and your staff offer and as a testament, I have highly recommended you to many colleagues, patients and friends. Having said that, I feel at this point, I have reached my personal goals I wanted to get from the program which have included the following:
1. I have learned the proper ways to train safely and effectively
2. I know longer avoid “leg” days. In fact, I love working legs now and have seen great results.
3. I have lowered my body fat to 7-8% simply from tweaking my diet but have maintained my weight in the process.
4. I no longer have knee or back pain
5. I drink plenty of water now, which has, in my opinion, eliminated the migraines I use to get more frequently
6. I have increased my overall strength, power, and function
7. I can now organize a personal training regimen for myself that incorporates all I have learned at Results Plus.
Having reached these goals, and for that matter, having never needed motivation to eat right or get out of bed early to workout, I completely understand there is always room to grow and improve which I certainly plan on doing and once my other goals have been reached in the near future. I will always recommend you and your facility highly to all who take fitness seriously.
I also want to thank all the trainers each had an impact on my learning process. All your trainers have really helped me take my strength training to another level which I never was able to do in the past. Form is everything!
John Jr., Commercial Furniture Service Corporation:
I am writing this email to tell you about the awesome workout that I had this morning with Steve. After missing my appointment on Monday, I was really looking forward to getting back to my routine, and Steve delivered. I feel like I am entering Phase 2 of my fat-man rehabilitation. Thanks to your staff of pro-ninja trainers, my aerobic levels are the best that they have ever been, and I feel I can improve my endurance even more. If that is not cool enough—I am getting stronger! I “pushed around” more weights today than I thought I was capable of and I feel fantastic. The great thing is nothing hurts! I want more. I can’t wait to train on Friday. You should be proud that after having six trainers, in three facilities—all in your area, Results Plus is by far the most educated, professional training facility I have ever experienced!
Thanks again. I really enjoy all your trainers. They are true professionals of their craft.
David V., Department of Health Services:
Personal training at it’s finest! I have sent over three new clients for Dave Parise and his staff. The facility is far ahead of the standards you might find at the local gym and fitness center. The personal trainers at Results Plus are extremely educated and well worth the fee. This was my third personal trainer from the North Haven area. I feel I found the service and results I demanded at Results Plus. I recommend Dave Parise and all the certified Results Plus trainers to anyone who really is committed to seeing and feeling the difference.
I wanted to write again about Dave Parise and Results Plus. I live in North haven CT, and work in Hamden. The personal trainers at Results Plus are outstanding, HANDS DOWN! I am content that the fitness center days are over. The best advice I could give is Dave Parise and the certified personal trainers in Hamden CT. are noted in my book, and many others as the best in their industry. My husband and I tried other trainers at local fitness centers and gyms—there was no comparison. Results Plus is in a league of its own. We both have made this the best choice and experience of our lives. Thank you Dave Parise and Results Plus personal training center!
Dr. Nancy J.:
I was impressed, moreover with the education. To whom it may concern: Recently, I was transferred, relocating from New York to North Haven, CT. I had a good trainer in the city. Last month I joined Results Plus in Hamden, CT. I was overwhelmed with the education of all the trainers and fitness professionals. Dave Parise has a large staff, and is present most hours of operation. I must say I am on my way for the first time to reach my goals and objectives. I am now trying to get Dave and his staff to do a seminar on proper exercise for Yale Hospital. I have lost 18 lbs., but more importantly my blood lipid profile, and my sugar levels have never been better!
A few words about Results Plus: They gave me my life and self esteem back! I love my new me. Dave, your Trainers are by far the best in the industry. Thanks gang, I couldn’t have done it without you.
They have my business! I have tried many trainers; Dave Parise and his staff are EXCELLENT! The first impression was what made me join. Dave and Krista are very professional and listened to all my concerns. They have my business.
The investment was an excellent experience! Words are only reality once experienced. I am thanking Dave Parise, Jason, Krista, Dom, Matt, and all the other 12 or so trainers at Results Plus for giving me the knowledge, and motivation to stay on an exercise program. My rewards for finding Dave’s trainers are 32 lbs lighter, 19 points lower in my cholesterol, and no more knee pain! I recommend Results Plus before any other! I will be there for many years to come. I also started my son on the program for football training. Thanks Dave!
