Boston Personal Training Success Stories
Here are a few more success stories we'd like to share with you from a handful of
clients we have worked with at Stephen Cabral Studio.

“Steve has been my personal trainer for two years. He is excellent. I have never
been in better shape, and he knows his stuff better than any trainer I have had in
the past. I am a physician, and this guy knows more about orthopedics and injuries
than I do! He is also the head of several gyms and trains numerous other trainers.”

Dr. Chris Phillips

“After 1 1/2 years I have made more progress with Steve than I have on my own or
with other trainers in the last 10 years. I have lost over 12 lbs, 3 inches off my
waist, and decreased my body fat. Steve is fun to work with and at the same time
very motivational.”

Mark Anxil


I went from 207 lbs. to 186 lbs. in just over four weeks! Not only did I lose 21 lbs.,
but my body fat went from 24.9% to 13.7%. Thanks to my new exercise routine, I n
longer have to take daily medication for my high blood pressure.”

David, Boston MA


Mark Kohler


“I lost 23 lbs. following Steve’s exercise and nutrition program that was designed
specifically for me. The best part is that after 14 years of smoking I finally quit!”

Jorge G.        


“When I started working with Steve 6 months ago, my goals were to achieve
increased strength, flexibility and improve my overall general fitness level. Steve
structured my workout program to include weekly sessions of upper and lower
bodystrengthening and stretching in addition to cardiovascular workouts.  As a
result of
this program, I have seen great improvements in muscle definition, flexibility, and
overall body strength. In addition, I have lost weight and am getting increased
distance with my golf game!!!”

Deb G.


“I searched for a trainer who could offer both personal attention and a wide range
of services to help meet my goals and keep workouts fresh and interesting. Steve
was the only trainer who could help me using Yoga, Martial Arts, Strength
Training, and Golf and Tennis Conditioning to make workouts fun.  For the first
time, I was excited to workout and the results were obvious. Steve's program
flexibility and commitment make him an ideal trainer for whatever your needs.”

Martin Twain


“8 weeks!  How is that for a testimonial?! A few of my friends from work and I
decided to have a little contest to see which of us could lose the most body weight
(percentage) in 8 weeks to get on track for the summer. Steve helped me design a
6 meal a day eating plan and also a workout schedule that I could do at lunch.  I
ate 6 300-calorie meals per day and tried to keep a healthy ratio of carbs - protein
- fat.  I worked out 45 minutes per day at lunch by doing circuit training and a quick
10-minute cardio session. Over the 8 weeks I lost 21.5 pounds, going from 211.5
to 190 pounds! I did falter a few times with my nutritional program during the 8
weeks, but Steve’s strong base program kept me losing weight!”

Mike Spellman


“Thank you for your patience and help. It has worked! I feel much better and have
lost 15lbs, so I am ready for next year. Happy New Year!”

“Whether I was losing weight, toning up, or just increasing overall strength and
stamina, Steve's program became a part of my life. It did not require long hours in
a gym with impossible equipment. It was a lifestyle that incorporated smart, healthy
eating with a simple, yet extremely affective strength and cardio routine. Steve
provided a workout that kept my heart rate up and my muscles engaged, allowing
me to loose weight and cut inches in less time then I thought possible. Through
Steve's program, I have been able to adopt a healthy and active lifestyle which
keeps me engaged and experiencing results at all times. The benefits of this
program will change your life.”

Felicia Sauza


“I have worked with Steve Cabral for over two years.  Steve is a dedicated
professional who understands his client's needs and helps them achieve their
personal goals.  He tailors the workout to achieve maximum results and varies the
exercises to focus on all muscle groups for a complete workout.  Steve set up a
balanced workout routine for me that focused on building lean muscle, core
strength, and better flexibility.  I have reached all my goals for reducing body fat,
increasing lean mass, and strengthening my core muscles.  I have great respect
for Steve and would recommend him to anyone who wants to work with an
experienced trainer.”

“I started hitting the gym in August of 2004.  I did some basic cardio for about 40
minutes a day and attempted to put a program together with weights.  Not a pretty
picture.  As most guys do, I concentrated on doing arms, chest and abs and not
focusing on the total body.  Needless to say, I was not getting the most out of the
time I was spending in the gym.  I was 34 and wanted to drop about 20 lbs and
increase my overall muscle to make me stronger in my activities. In November,
after losing my interest in going to the gym, I contacted Steve and let him know
that I was interested in putting together a few sessions to get me on the right
track.  During our first meeting I let him know my goals, to drop the excess weight,
and to put a solid program together to see results.  I explained that I wanted to
make the most out of my time at the gym and to see results as well as have fun.
After the first 12 sessions, I was hooked.  I was feeling better, had changed the
way I looked at my workouts and made the commitment to myself to put in the time
and effort both inside and outside the gym.  My program changed every 6 weeks
and as my personal goals changed, so did the programs.  Once I lost the weight, it
was time to focus on my core strength and finally on gaining muscle through
nutrition and working out.  A year and a half later, I have had some great results
thanks to the training program.  It is one of the best investments you can make in
your own personal health and well being and Steve and his trainers truly partner
with you to make your goals a reality.”

Paul Clark


“I had applied for a government position.  The position required that each applicant
pass a physically exhaustive fitness exam that required strength and endurance.
While I was not a novice to working out, this exam required me to develop
additional skills.  I had taken the fitness exam prior to signing on with Steve and
failed.  Once I started working out properly under the guidance of Steve using the
new strength training exercises, I trimmed down & toned up. I passed the fitness
exam the second go around!  I have been able to improve incrementally using his
advice.  I don't think I would have been able to do it on my own.  Steve was always
there to push me to do better.  Thanks Steve!”

“As a personal trainer I am well informed on health, nutrition and certainly on
exercise.  However, after going through some personal changes in my life I had put
on a few extra lbs. -yes, trainers are human too!  I wanted to lose the weight for
myself, but also wanted to feel good for my wedding in July.  I for some reason
could put together plans for my clients, but needed that extra motivation for
myself.  Steve and I had worked together previously, so I knew how wonderful he
was at his profession.  A friend was also working with him and sang his praises so I
gave him a call. - great move by me:) Steve is an incredibly talented personal
trainer.  His workouts are clearly individualized and he always goes the extra step
to make it a fully comprehensive program. He is up to date on nutrition and
training and will spend additional time to provide you with all the tools he can.  
Steve is so incredibly motivating, fun to work with, creative and truly vested in his
client's progress. This may sound "cliche", but I've really watched and felt my body
transform since we've been working together, and I'm thankful to have him as my

“Working out with Steve has been one of the best decisions I have ever made!  I
am more inspired to focus on my exercise routine and I’ve noticed faster results
than just doing cardio on my own.  Steve will take the time to understand your
fitness goals and puts together a program specifically tailored to you.  I’m getting
compliments every day on how great I look; the whole experience has been
transforming.  Thanks Steve for your help, dedication, commitment and motivation
– I couldn’t have done it without you!”

Crissy Cerullo


“I have been a client of Steve's for the past 1.5 years.  Steve is a true
professional.  He is dedicated, knowledgeable  and definitely  makes sure you
achieve your personal goals.  Steve keeps the workouts fresh and fun and pushes
you to see maximum results.  I feel that Steve should the mold for all other
personal trainers. If you are looking for the Best of the Best you have found it with
Steve and do not need to look any further. “

Paul, Boston MA

"I can’t say enough about working with Steve. He has a great way of motivating me
while easing into a serious workout on the days that it's hard to muster up the
energy.   I don't want some "hyper drill sergeant" walking in, and I don't want
someone who's going to let me slack off either. Somehow with his great manner,
he gets me to do it.    Also I love the luxury of Steve coming to my home. That way I
know I'm going to fit in my work out."

Anthony Corey

"Thank you Steve. A couple of years ago I catapulted myself into my
cobblestone driveway while helping my son bungee-cord his surf board to the
top of my car. Because of my 18 months or so of working with Steve before
the fall, the muscles in my back helped protect my spine. After Steve helped me
recover from the injury, I am fitter now than I ever was - and that's pretty fit."

Crystal Gandrud

In all my years of training as an international athlete, I have yet to come across a
training program that gave me the results I was looking for, as quickly as Steve’s
program did. His program is as scientific as it is comprehensive and, most
importantly, results-oriented.

Before starting his routine, I had trained using a variety of methods, adopted by
coaches in different countries. However, his program was, by a long shot, the very
best. He doesn’t have the usual ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach, nor is he someone
who simply talks the talk, as knowledgeable as he is on training techniques AND
nutrition. His program is very comprehensive in that it focuses not just on the
exercises, but also on stretching and nutrition. As excited as I was about starting
up, I was even more amazed by the results I achieved in just 4 weeks. Specifically,
I dropped 6 pounds of fat whilst adding 5 pounds of lean mass, something I had
struggled to accomplish earlier.

I have already recommended Steve to a lot of friends and I strongly encourage
anyone who is committed to their fitness goals to meet with him; it definitely is
worth the time and effort.
