Mark's Story:

"The Encore Personal Training program gave me the determination to change my life and get healthy. At 40 years old, I am now in the best physical condition I've ever been in. While living in Las Vegas, the personal trainers at Encore changed my life and the way I live my life. I am now taking dance lessons at Stoney's on Friday nights. Before, I never had the energy to go to the lake or the pools, now I have a boat. It felt so great when I first noticed the weight coming off. The biggest change in my life is that now I am attracting the type of women that I'm attracted to. Before I started working out, I was less confident in myself. The Encore Personal training program made me more outgoing. I met a lot of great Las Vegas locals in their networking system.

I do circuit training on average 3 days a week for 30-45 minutes after I warm up and then I do my cardio in addition to that when I have time because my trainer makes me be on time, stretch and follow a custom meal plan. Sometimes I go 4 or 5 days a week because itÕs the same price per month so its easy for me to budget. My favorite workout is leg day and I love the chicken recipe. Their trainers work on shifts, so you know you still have accountability in case you need to come in earlier or later. Having booked recurring appointments makes me show up and the Encore website saves me a whole lot of time if I need to reschedule.

Honestly, I decided to join Encore to date more attractive women, but now, I'm glad I joined for my health. I am so much more positive to be around and I would recommend Encore to everyone."

LVAC Personal Trainer Carol Strom, about Mark

"This is a good example of how toned muscles look versus being out of shape. Mark lost 4.3% of his fat (10lbs) and gained 4lbs of muscle in a few months and has maintained it for 2 years. Mark now has a passion for working out and he said that he is ready to take it to the next level. Encore is like a school for LVAC members. People meet other health conscious people who care about each other and grow as an athetic team. We take new people and advanced people and place them with the right trainer based on their goal for private or partner matching based on their skill level."

Goal: Celine Dion Impersonator…AFTER 40 and childbirth!

Achieved: American Superstar headliner at Stratosphere, and world tour starting with a performance for the Sultan in Malaysia, plus many more exciting opportunities in television and film as a singer, songwriter, vocal coach and music producer.
Elisa's Story:

"I searched through many personal trainers, and Carol's resume and excellent before & after results on her website stood out the most. Carol is very professional but she also knows how to balance the line between kicking your butt in training and also being able to have a good laugh with you. The most remarkable difference is
how her program has improved my cardio fitness and stamina! When I first started I couldn't run one lap around the track (1/7th mile). I had to use my asthma inhaler and thought I was having a heart attack. Now I can do cardio like a kid, and I feel even better after 40 than I have in my whole life! I would recommend Carol to anyone, any day and swear by her skills, knowledge and genuine Love for what she does. She has helped me in so many ways, most of all by getting me fit for all the touring I am going to be doing!"

LVAC Personal Trainer Carol Strom, about Elisa:

"Elisa is a former showgirl who was concerned about getting bulky with weights. After she finally submitted to lifting hard with circuit training for 30 minutes, 3 times a week, her figure transformed to become smaller, tighter and more toned than she'd ever been, especially in her legs and gluts. Most notably, her self confidence has improved. Before, she had asked me, 'Will I ever get rid of the cellulite?' Now, she has become an inspiration to her friends, and someone even asked me if she was a supermodel."

“After enjoying many late nights of clubs and cosmos I woke up one morning only to realize that I was not looking my best, actually I didn’t recognize myself! My body looked unhealthy and I was significantly overweight from my party lifestyle and very bad habits. Encore Personal Training turned my life around, I now look and feel better than ever! My custom Encore meal plan was the easiest I’ve ever followed. The success from working out has opened so many doors. I am now working as a professional model with an agency (www.kathrynstone.wetpaint.com). Recently, I was awarded the title of "Miss Henderson International" and am getting ready to compete for the Nevada state title. Thanks LVAC and Encore Personal Training for helping to make my dreams a reality!"

AFTER - Muscle Gains & Fat Loss Results Achieved with Group Circuit Training

Dr. Barry J. Lasko's Story

  "Many don’t know what Barry has overcome to achieve such outstanding results. Barry has the focus and determination of a true winner. He is a coach’s dream because he will do exactly what you tell him.

  "On our first meeting, I was worried because Barry could barely climb the stairs to his treadmill test. The routine physician release to work out and find out what was wrong with his breathing turned into an emergency pacemaker and defibrillator install due to sleep apnea coupled with a congenital heart defect.
  "With Barry’s heart doctor’s okay, we saw his determination and hope deepen. The breathing machine for sleep apnea and the pacemaker corrected the heartbeat, so we got permission to gradually work up from slow workouts 2 days a week to 5 days a week and ten 45-minute sessions of cardio a week. He also attended all video posing practices and professional photography sessions to see how he was coming in. Many people wouldn’t dream of getting up before work and then coming back after a busy day, or follow a very strict diet for 12 weeks. That’s what it takes to look like this for a contest. He trained like a champion, integrated laser surgery into his dentistry business, rescues animals, and continues to be a devoted husband and father of four. He even has a cute therapy dog in his dental office. Barry is a champion, role model and inspiration to all of us here at LVAC."

Wow...Where to begin? I was skinny up until I was 7 years old, then the weight problem developed and persisted for the next, almost, 30 years. Weight up & down, up & down...how many times? Many, at least 5 or 6 to count off the top of my head. Then after praying for years to overcome heaviness, it was time. In the beginning of summer, I was at my heaviest around, 243+. I made a decision to lose the weight at that time. The weight started to come off slowly with smaller portions. I became conscious about watching what I was eating, smaller portions, half portions, portions as small as your fist (two fists at first!) lots of salads, carrots... Click here to continue

I joined the gym in June. I began to go on a "regular" basis a year after I signed up. Although I am quite driven and self-disciplined, I was able to lose only 1 pound in a two-month period. It wasn't until I received Personal Training that I began to see results. And although I was eating pretty healthy, my personal trainer pointed out that my portions were too big, and set me up on an easy to follow diet plan. I was also concerned that with my Fibromyalgia (a condition that is like arthritis of the soft tissues and muscles) I would not be able to do a proper workout without being in serious pain from it. My personal trainer had knowledge of this condition, and was able to tailor my initial workout schedule and diet...Click here to continue

I couldn't be more satisfied with my progress. The fact that Encore Personal Training is a full time professional fitness company gives me confidence that they will be there for me though out the challenge of regaining my health and fitness. I am very impressed not only by Encore's expertise in the field of exercise and weight training, but in their overall fitness knowledge. I have been struggling with an ever burgeoning body for the last 20 years. Encore has managed to make me work harder than I thought possible. With all of the choices in Las Vegas, I plan to continue to drive from North Las Vegas to train three times a week! (Toni has been in over 40 major Hollywood motion pictures)

Then I lost my mother, my brother, and 2 dogs of 15 years (who were like children to my wife and I), all in less than a year! I was at my highest weight 230+ lbs and I couldn't walk because of bad knees. In fact, I had to wear knee braces on stage to get through each performance. I couldn't sleep, had no energy, and was diagnosed with high blood pressure. I looked and felt like an 80 year old man with a bad back....Click here to continue
