Here's what our customers are saying about us!
Kim
I have been overweight since I can remember! From being overweight, I have developed diabetes. That made me think. I am so glad my friend “who also lost weight” told me about Terry. I couldn’t have done this without him! The best is he comes to you wherever you are. I wouldn’t have done it if he was just a trainer in a gym; I know myself too well! I look back at these pictures and think, "OMG why did I wait so long."
 
I still have 26.4 lbs to go along with 4.5 points on BMI… but Terry keeps me in check. He is not only there to support my physical change, but my emotional change also. It is like getting a 2-in-1 package deal. He’s a great listener! I went from a size 22 to a solid size 12 in just one year (that includes a 5 month plateau). So really, that is just 8 months at a healthy pace! Think about it for LIFE - it only took me 8 months, and my diabetes is under control!
 
I have tried all the diets that everyone else has tried, but nothing has come close to this life-changing event that I have received with Terry! He's a good motivator, and I'm not saying I don’t feel like it today. If you need a wake-up call, you get one. There is no excuse! You get that push you need! He is a great investment for anyone who is ready for a change!

Kim Before and After Training
Cindy S.
At my first face-to-face interview with Terry, he asked me what my goals were. I responded that I wanted to be stronger, faster, and better. He smiled and said B.T.F. can do that! It's almost 5 years later, and I am still here! Not because my goals weren't met, but because THEY WERE! I got RESULTS! I got FIT! I got HOOKED! Being a "BTF" client means:
 
B-building muscles and core strength
T-trainers who teach you, not just train you
F-fitness for life
 
You want results? Then Body Temple Fitness just makes sense!

I never been to a personal trainer and really didn't know what to expect. My 50th birthday was coming up..I had this great trip planned to Jamaica but needed some help so I could really enjoy myself . Terrace the owner made me feel so comfortable from my first class I really worked harder than I imagined I could and my results was amazing. I can't say enough about my experience. I wore a 2 piece bathing suit for the first time in years .It was definitely worth it ....no matter what ur goals are either short or long-term you definitely can't go wrong at Body Temple Fitness

Rachel B.
Terry made me feel like myself again. I'm so happy I found him & got to work with him. The exercises he showed me and the strength he gave me, I will take with me in whatever fitness journeys I take in my life. I always came home from BTF feeling better than I did when I walked in the door and I have Terry to thank for that. He has an amazing personality and an equally amazing thought process on how to make each client feel great about themselves and achieve their fitness goals. I will definitely be back to training at BTF in the future. Don't forget the hot sauce!

I was referred to Body Temple Fitness by a good friend who swore by Terrace as a great trainer who gets you results. As someone who is not a gym person (& an inconsistent exercise person), I was was a little intimidated by the notion of personal training, but I decided to bite the bullet after seeing a Groupon deal. I'm so glad I took the leap of faith!!! I have been seeing Terrace for a little over a month and I train for a half hour, 3x a week. In only one month, I have dropped 7 pounds, 5% body fat, and my overall measurements have decreased 5"!! I should add that I work a strict diet and have been off dairy, carbs, and sugar for the past few months, so when I started training I was already down 20 pounds. I went to Terrace with the specific goal of building lean muscle, toning, shaping, and of course dropping a few more pounds. I'm so happy with my progress that I signed up for 30 more sessions! That's how much confidence I have in Terrace's expertise and knowledge. I have abs (!), shoulder and arm definition, but most importantly I'm feeling great! He knows what exercises will work for your specific body type. The man just knows what he's doing; its that simple. He is very friendly, funny, & motivational. The workouts are never the same and he knows how to meet you where you're at, how to challenge you, and how to get you where you need to be to get those results!! I'm looking forward to continued progress to reach my body shaping and weight loss goals. I can speak firsthand that you will not be disappointed as long as you maintain your part and not sabotage your progress. There is no pretense at BTF...everyone is real and it's an atmosphere of positivity and support. I highly recommend Terrace and BTF...if you want RESULTS, this is the place to go! Thank you Terrace for your dedication to my goals!!

Barbara H.
As a beginner, I was truly blessed by the one-on-one training session and support by the staff - especially Tammy! Being a part of this fitness center has helped me lose weight, build muscle and build self-confidence! What an awesome fitness center! 

Luz C.
Trainer Tyrell has done a great job teaching my son basketball skills that have given him the confidence he needs to play and enjoy the game more than ever before.

Shelly S.
I had a wonderful experience working with Terry and Shelly to plan my daughter's 7th birthday Zumba dance party. They took care of EVERYTHING! Which was great for me being a busy mother of 3. They are very warm, friendly, and professional. I felt like I had know them for years. :) My daughter and her friends had a wonderful time. I certainly recommend them as party planners, and I will definitely have them plan my other daughter's birthday party.

I've been with the BTF family for a little bit over a year now and it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. I couldn't be happier with the results I have reached. I have lost over 20lbs in less than six months and my energy level is through the roof! Each trainer has a special way of training that will keep your work outs well rounded. When you actually enjoy working out it no longer becomes a task, it's becomes a way of life and with out the BTF family I am not sure if i would have ever felt this way about working out. I truly enjoy it and I know my overall happiness would not be where it is today without the team that has helped me get there!

Christina R.
Over the past 8 years I've tried several different gyms, trainers and routines to get me to my ideal weight/ image and none of them could possible compare to Body Temple Fitness! Terry goes above and beyond and delivers more than what you would typically experience in a personal training session. Not only does he make the work outs fun but the atmosphere as a total package is like no other! He works around my schedule and customize my routines to my needs. Terry's uplifting spirit and motivation leaves you feeling accomplished at the end of every work out. He is not just an ordinary trainer but a lifetime friend!

Christopher B.
The Ulbrich Boys & Girls Club invited Terry Johnson down to speak to a group of teens and perform a fitness demo. As the Program Director, I knew I needed someone that would grasp the teens attention. Terry went above and beyond and rocked the Club. The teens talked about the session for the rest of week!! I have known Terry for years now and he connects with all ages. I highly recommend Terry and Body Temple Fitness.

Ann S.
My daughter and I go to BTF together and have so much fun! We're both feeling stronger and healthier, and losing weight in the process! We have worked with four of the trainers and they all push us just enough to get more, safely, out of ourselves each time. Great nutrition coaching and a true family atmosphere here, with very personalized workouts, and participants of every fitness level, size and shape. So encouraging. We look forward to coming to BTF each week.

Adrienne S.
Terry, and Body Temple Fitness has left my son feeling confident, with an improved self image. A real gift when school can be so unkind. I'm so thankful to Terry and BTF!

Susan M.
This time around my personal training goals revolve around keeping my cancer at bay. My Doc says "keep doing whatever it is you're doing - it's working"! In our co-training sessions with my husband, Terry brings laughter along with knowledge and "kick ass" workouts. We look forward to our sessions and urge others to run (not walk) in and give Body Temple Fitness and Fitness Guru Terry Johnson a try. You won't be sorry!

Lindsay M.
Terrace and his team are all wonderful. My work schedule can be a bit hectic. It Terri works with me so that I can always get in. In addition to the meal plan and classes I attend I have support everyday from him. I have been working with him for a month and have lost 11 lbs and my cholesterol triglycerides and blood pressure are all down. My Dr. even told me to thank Terri for him. I recommend btf for anyone looking to work hard but have fine while doing it. It's like a family there!

Dorian K.
I (and my body) wish I had discovered Body Temple Fitness years earlier. Owner Terrace Johnson excels at concentrating just the right amount of variety, challenge, and kick-butt inspiration in a short duration with laser intensity to satisfy every exercise palette. He knows just how to cater to a client's desired focus while offering a well-rounded, versatile plan that is tailored to an individual's unique profile with a healthy respect for any limitations and a great balance of cardio and strength training. I would unequivocally recommend Body Temple Fitness for all ages and body conditions. Bravo! (B=Body T=Toned F=Feels Good)

Terry and his other trainers helped me achieve my goal to become educated and disciplined about my weight loss. Everyone involved had a great personality and you could tell they really cared about the progress you made and weren't just trying to sell you more sessions.These are not your typical personal trainers.

Ryan
3 weeks into family training with Terrace in the Middlefield location. It's a super convenient power 30 min session and he keeps it fun and motivating. Definitely glad we signed up.

Sofia A.
Great place, really personalized attention and Terry (the owner) is a great, down to earth guy who will get you results! This place is like a big family and they treat you as such.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this place !! Just added another personal training day to my routine . I see John, who also teaches classes 6 days a week , I take 2 of his yoga classes . You can purchase class packages separately . This is my therapy, and before you think you can't afford it , talk to Terry . I had surgery in September and was back at it 4 weeks later. One on one personal training based on YOUR ability . Real trainers training real people , no worries about other people watching !! That's what I love , they are totally focused on YOU . Keep up the great work guys !!

Stephanie M.
This is not a gym, it's a family. Everyone knows you and everyone is rooting for you. The trainers care about your journey and have the knowledge to get you there if you are willing to put in the work. Personal training and classes are awesome!! Highly recommend giving it a try, you won't be disappointed! Good luck! :)

Alan C.
Terry and all of the trainers are great. They have done an amazing job of helping me lose weight (~20 lbs) in ~4 months, and strengthening my whole body, This is especially outstanding, with my MS diagnosis. They really help factor that in to every workout. So much so, when my physical therapy ended, I increased my plan to 3 training sessions a week. Thanks BTF!

Melissa K.
For years I made every possible excuse not to take care of myself. Then one day Lucy walked over to me at a town event and talked to me about BTF. That was May 7th, 2016 and I signed up that day. I have been training twice a week with Lucy since then and I have lost weight and inches. But most importantly, I feel great! Lucy is just what I needed, a knowledgeable and supportive trainer that takes the time to plan my workouts and explain the muscle groups we are working with each one. If you are feeling self conscious and don't want to work out in a crowded gym, BTF has a private location in Middlefield where you can work out one on one with your trainer and feel at home. BTF has changed my attitude about gyms and working out. I love BTF! And I love Lucy! Terry and his entire staff are there to help you with your fitness goals - and they are committed to your success - call them... you will not be sorry.

Melissa H.
Body Temple Fitness is not only a personal training studio, but a family. With each person you meet when you walk through the door, you feel a sense of warmth and caring. Terrace cares about each individual and will do whatever it takes to help you reach your goals. I have seen first-hand, from senior fitness all the way to athletic training, the transformation that takes place with him and his clients. I am proud to be a part of the BTF family!

Denise Q.
I've been working out at Body Temple Fitness for years and I can't say enough about how life changing its been for me. Once I committed to the process and with the help of these awesome trainers, I've lost inches and gained muscle but the real difference for me is how much better I FEEL! No matter the aches and pains I walk in with, they always give me the best work outs, working around my issues and I always always leave there feeling 100% great ! They listen to my needs. My son now goes there and what a difference it's made for him and his abilities !

Tracy Ann G.
BTF helped make my dream come true! I was applying to be a Police Officer and started training for the Cooper pretty late in the game. In September, I couldn't even do one push up and was definitely not a runner. I had to do 11 (don't laugh) push-ups and run a 1.5 mile in October. While doing push-ups at home late in September, I tore an abdominal muscle and couldn't do any core work. My doctor said there was no way I was going to be able to take the Cooper in 4 weeks because recovery would take at least 3-6 weeks. I talked to Terrace, who came highly recommended, and he said he was going to help me train and get me through the Cooper. He pushed me through core work that strengthened my upper body without using the abdominal muscle. He made me run, which I hated. In three weeks, I was doing 12 push-ups!!! He knew exactly what to do to work around the injury. The morning of the Cooper, I stopped to see him for a pep talk. He said he was coming to watch. That was all I needed. I had to pass the Cooper at 40% of the standards to move on - and I blew past that at the 50th%!!!!!!
In December, I was hired by a local police department and left for the Police Academy. With Terrace's encouragement always in the back of my mind, I left the academy doing 75 push-ups and taking 2 minutes off of my run time. In those 2 years, I've lost 30 pounds and continue to work out every day. I drop in for BTF classes when I can, which I love. I owe my career to his expertise, his knowledge, and his encouragement. I'm still amazed that he knows so much about exercise and the human body that he worked me through core exercises without exacerbating the injury and healing it instead. Thank you, BTF!

I started working with Terry at Body Fitness Temple about 4 weeks ago and have never felt better. Down 15 pounds doing three thirty minute sessions a week and following the meal plan Terry provided. The workouts are different every time and Terry makes it fun. Everything from weight machines, to punching bag, swinging ropes, push ups, crunches, and cardio. He is a real motivator and he's there to help you achieve your goals. I mentioned that he put me on a meal plan - which I thought was a code word for a diet when I first heard about it (done that before, never have been able to stick with them long term)... that's not what he gave me - just a list of meals with sensible food choices and good sized portions, but nothing out of control. I haven't been hungry once on that meal plan.

I'm a big guy and ideally I'd like to lose 100 pounds. I was a little bit nervous about going to see a personal trainer and being in such bad shape as a starting place. That fear was completely unfounded when going to Body Fitness Temple.

I'd highly recommend Body Fitness Temple to anyone that was looking for someone to help them get in good shape and needed someone to keep the motivation level high.

Joanne J.
Terry, came highly recommended to me from some Women, that I trust, I had a personal training session with Terry, I felt so much more confident when I left that I made the right decision for me. That I was not only going to loss weight but also get an education about the process and the Machines I was working on. I wanted a TRAINED PROFESSIONAL someone with experience. I found just that at
BODY TEMPLE FITNESS AND TERRY, STAY TUNE WATCH WHAT WE ACCOMPLISH!

María Sofía A.
Great place, really personalized attention and Terry (the owner) is a great, down to earth guy who will get you results! This place is like a big family and they treat you as such.

Kate M.
Terry and his staff are wonderful! The best workouts by far! Not only were the one on one training sessions challenging but it gave me the confidence I needed in the fitness world. It's a great family setting where I felt real support for my weight loss goals. Plus they make a "mean" protein shake!

Vejay C.
BTF is by far one of the most professional and friendly personal training facility you can ask for. With training programs that’s tailored to your individual goals along with a personal trainer that is professional, friendly and results driven, I couldn’t asked for a better team and atmosphere to take on my fitness challenge. If being fit is your lifestyle goal I recommend you give Terry and his team a call.

Rich H.
Want a place with individual attention or small group classes? If yes, then this is the place to go.

Diane T.
I finally stopped putting off what I should've been doing a long time ago. I walked into BTF, thinking, that joining before the holidays was a bad idea. I couldn't be more wrong-- I have a great support group and family! I've seen results in a short time! I honestly look forward to it!

JoanAnn N.
Amazing people, phenomenal instruction BTF you are the world to The Natola family, your work with special needs adults on saturday morning is priceless ... Truly Thank You!

MJ F.
Terrace keeps me motivated. When I leave BTF I wish that I had another 1/2 hour to work out with him. 2 times a week for a 1/2 hr. is not enough for me. As my personal trainer he is the VERY BEST! In a very short time he has restored full range of motion from a rotator cuff operation that physical therapy could not do in 8 months of going once a week. We never discussed my range of motion, or lack of, then one day I noticed it was back. That was after 5 visits. LOVE everything about BTF!

Kathleen G.
Best workouts I've ever had!!!! Terry is a very attentive trainer who encourages and pushes me to attain and even surpass my goals!! I walk out of every session feeling a great sense of accomplishment!!

Patricia O.
This is a great place for the whole family to get fit and enjoy being active !!

Christine I.
The best thing I ever did for myself was to join up at BTF!
