Meet September’s Client of the Month – Emily!

Emily Fabiano

What made you originally choose Nunn’s Performance Training?

I chose Nunn’s because my mom, Connie who is a firefighter/paramedic, worked out there and I saw how strong and in shape she was. She doesn’t go to just anyone for training so I knew I would be in awesome hands with Jason and Kristin. I also have back issues and I knew strengthening my core and back was vital to my overall health and important since I stand all day at my job.


What have been your accomplishments so far?

My accomplishments so far at the gym are I have broken the chin up record for 14 and also have the pull up record at 12 if Dana hasn’t beat me yet! Ha!


How has your success in the gym impacted your daily life?

My success at the gym has impacted my daily life by making feel more confident and strong. I don’t think there is a better feeling than being a STRONG woman!!

Top 3 Questions I’m Asked When People Find Out I’m a Trainer


The conversations usually start off nice enough. You meet someone new, they ask you what you do and then the questions start coming. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I appreciate people being interested enough to ask beyond, “what do you do?” But seriously when I’m at a party or on vacation, the details of your diet or my workout are the last thing I want to talk about. Here are the top 3 things I’m regularly asked when people find out I’m a trainer.

  1. Oh you’re a trainer! Do you, like, workout every day?

Meet August’s Client of the Month – Laury!


What made you initially choose Nunn’s Performance Training?

Brian and Susie Singer recommended Nunn’s to me.


What have your accomplishments been so far?

My initial goal was to get in better shape and lose weight.  I have accomplished this so far but have more work to do.


How has your success in the gym impacted your daily life?

I feel better physically, as well as eliminated some of my back pain issues that I have had for a number of years.


What are your future fitness goals?

Same as my original goals, continue to get in better shape and lose weight.

So you want to do a pullup? Here’s how.

To me, pullups are one of the best exercises for developing back size and strength.  They are a staple in our programming for both kids and adults.  But what if someone can’t do them?  Does that mean they are doomed to be small and weak?  Absolutely not! Here’s the progressions we use to get people better and pulllups:

1.  Lose weight – Very rarely will you ever see a male over 20% bodyfat or a female over 25% be able to do a pullup.  Having extra fat just means you’re having to move excess weight.

2.  Banded chinups (supinated grip)/Banded pullups (pronated grip) – For this one, we place a band around the J-Hooks of the squat rack and stand on it while pulling up to the bar.  I do this, instead of looping it around the chinup bar because it is easier to adjust the height of the band.  It prevents the athlete’s shoe from getting caught in the band while exiting the rack.  It’s really important in all of these exercises to squeeze the shoulder blades together in the back.  It shouldn’t look like you’re doing a crunch at the top.

What made you initially choose Nunn’s Performance Training?

I needed a coach for Special Olympics, and I wanted to continue working out through the year and possibly compete in standard competitions.

What have your accomplishments been so far?

Since joining Nunn’s I have lost approx 20 pounds!  At this year’s Special Olympics competition I took all four gold medals and increased the weight in all my events.

How has your success in the gym impacted your daily life?

In my daily life I have seen an improvement in my stamina.  I also have more energy and feel better about myself.  I am doing better and taking care of my body and slowly making changes in my eating habits.

What are your future fitness goals?

Overall I want to continue improving my health.  I would like to build enough muscle and lose weight so I can look like a body builder.

Meet February’s Client of the Month – Amanda!


What made you initially choose Nunn’s Performance Training?

I decided to train at Nunn’s Performance after seeing a family member’s results from the gym.  I had been training for while myself, and trying multiple things, but I wasn’t seeing the results that I felt I should.

What have your accomplishments been so far?

Where to start?  Being 5 foot on a good day, it shocks me that I am now training for a power lifting competition, deadlifting 200 pounds, training with heavy weights. Let’s just say that I thought NONE of this was possible.

How has your success in the gym impacted your daily life?

I am now comfortable in my own skin; I’ve always struggled with confidence and I am now working hard, seeing results, and am actually proud of myself.

Meet January’s Client of the Month – Chris!


What made you initially choose Nunns Performance Training?

The desire to improve my performance in the big 3 lifts –  Squat, Bench and Deadlift – while improving my body composition.

What have your accomplishments been so far?

All three lifts have gone up as indicated by improvement in my 3, 5 or even 8 rep weights. Total improvement won’t be realized until the powerlifting meet this coming April, 11th. What I can say for sure is that from May 1st when I joined the gym to my last measurements done on Oct. 25th my bodyweight has stayed at 200.5 but my body fat has gone from 16.1% to 9.91%.  In short, my pants fit better.

How has your success in the gym impacted your daily life?

Success in the gym gives me most of my positive attitude and can keep me upbeat through the workday.

Excited For The New Year!





Wow! 2015!

We are so excited to see the changes we have planned for 2015 at Nunn’s Performance Training! Equipment upgrades, website changes, the addition of “clubs”, awards for mental attitude/biggest improvement/largest strength gains in 2015, a referral incentive program, contests and more! We are also excited for our kids programs!

Tiger Cubs debuted in 2014 with 2 test classes boasting great success! Kiddos ages 4-9 loved this 6 week long game based program so much that upon request, we added classes for 2015!

Our Fundamentals of Athletic Development classes start back up this spring and we are looking forward to helping another group of young athletes ages 9-12 become faster, stronger and more explosive through our combined speed, agility and beginning strength program.

Meet December’s Client of the Month – Jill!

What made you initially choose Nunn’s Performance Training?

I found Nunn’s by using Groupon. I was excited to find a business that provided training near Avon. It also didn’t hurt that it was a great deal! As a member of a larger gym, I always felt intimidated and overwhelmed. Being a runner and having run a few half-marathons, I would use the treadmill and that was about it. I wasn’t having much luck losing weight and I wanted to work on gaining strength and muscle tone. I knew I couldn’t accomplish that on my own. After my Groupon was finished, I went back to my other gym and fell right back to my same treadmill routine. I couldn’t wait to get back to Nunn’s and continue lifting weights. I really missed Nunn’s a ton (especially Jason….because we all know how awesome he is!).

Meet November’s Client of the Month – Steve!

Steve Ernst


What made you initially choose Nunn’s Performance Training?

Prior to joining Nunn’s Performance Training, I was working out intermittently at another gym and I felt that my lifting form was less than desirable.  I was looking for a trainer to work on my lifting form and challenge me.  The minute I walked into Nunn’s Performance Training, I knew that I found a knowledgeable staff and intense gym.

What have your accomplishments been so far?

I am in better shape now than I have been for many years, the strongest ever, and lifting form getting better all the time.  I have been at the gym for over 1 year consistently and I hit new personal bests frequently.

How has your success in the gym impacted your daily life?

I have increased energy throughout the day and my years of chronic neck pain are gone.
