Meet Heather Matte:

Heather Matte after 4 months @ BAM NiagaraI’m a 61 year old woman who started personal training July 11, 2013 with coach Jamie Phelps.

I have worked with various trainers off and on for over 30 years. For the past 8 years I have been completely sedentary and in the worst shape of my life.

It is now November 11, 2013 3 months later, and I haven’t looked or felt this good for over 8 years. I have lost over 45lbs. He literally has transformed my body. I’ll never be 35 again, but I wasn’t expecting to feel like it again, and thanks to Jamie I do now.

Jamie’s commitment, dedication and devotion to his clients sets him apart. His impressive athletic skill set combined with his motivational techniques qualify him to be the best trainer I have ever worked with.

There is no better return on any investment you’ll ever make that will pay the dividends that working with coach Phelps will.

Jamie, thank you….in the words of the iconic Tina Turner….

“You’re simply the best, better than all the rest!!!”
