Client Testimonials

One-on-one experience

I spent a lot of time researching for a Personal Trainer. Being a Physical Therapist, I needed someone who I believed knew “exercise” as I do. I never liked going to the gym and needed someone who would give me a ” one to one” experience. Gabe is the perfect trainer for me. I have been with him 6 months and have gone down 2 sizes as well as feeling like I have more energy in which to do my job. He is not a “Bully” but he works you HARD! Gabe is very concerned about his clients’ progress and what their goals are and what they want to accomplish! I feel very happy to have Gabe as my trainer and plan to be with him a long time!

I am stronger and more flexible

Ben at Rivertowns Personal Training Company’s Nyack studio has been an exceptional trainer who both pushes and encourages me to do my best. Initially, I was somewhat intimidated by free weights and Ben’s instruction has given me a high level of proficiency and confidence when I’m working out alone. Because of Ben, I am stronger and more flexible and working out has become something I look forward to every day. I attribute the results that I’ve achieved to Ben’s diverse training routines and the challenging workouts he provides. His encouragement also makes a big difference. I accomplish more in a 30 minute session than I would alone for an hour or more.

He always finds time for me

I have been training with Gabe at the Rivertowns PT location in Nyack for about 2 months. I have lost weight and put on muscle in a very short period of time. He modifies my workouts so that they don’t aggravate my injuries and accommodate my fitness level. I am a single parent that works full time but he always finds time for me. He has educated me on nutrition and eating habits. He is a great motivator.

Rivertowns PT has changed my life. I’m 54 and for the last year watched my son work out with Gabe and his team (always thinking those days of work outs were over for me.) It wasn’t until I saw a mother and daughter finishing a session that I thought it possible to start working out with my son. Well, they say a picture is worth a thousand words, so check out the before and after photo. It’s a work a progress after 10 weeks. Gabe is also a nutritionist which has also helped my situation. Gabe has never allowed me to hurt myself. That was my biggest fear and he has never let me down. I really am indebted to Rivertowns PT company for my renewed energy, strength and elimination of many of the aches and pains that I thought were just part of being 54. It’s also a great way to spend time with my son.

When working out with Gabe at Rivertowns PT I feel I’m getting every penny’s worth out of my workouts. I can’t believe that I “enjoy” going to the gym 3 days a week. I really do enjoy it! And even more so, I enjoy the results of losing 12 pounds (so far!), 18 inches (so far!), and dropping my body fat percentage substantially in just a few months. A healthy diet and exercise is the only way to get those results, and for me, having the accountability and knowledge of a personal trainer has made all the difference in the world.



I have been training at Rivertowns PT since they first opened their first Westchester location in 2007. I love it! Personal training with Gabe provides me with the motivation I need to work hard at getting and staying in shape. I presently go three times a week for personal training, and it is the best gift I have ever given myself. Gabe balances strength training with cardio work outs to provide diverse sessions that never get dull or monotonous. I’ve found that Gabe really listens to what my goals are and modifies our sessions to suit my personal needs, as well as giving helpful nutritional advice. I am happy to say that I truly look forward to my work outs.

I am currently a client at Rivertowns PT…My trainer, Gabriel, has been an inspiration and mentor to me. He is extremely knowledgeable, teaches by examples and lives each day by exercising. I followed exactly what he has told me to do, and in just a short span of three months, I lost twelve pounds, tightened up problem areas, and clothes that I haven’t been able to fit into in years are once again part of my daily wardrobe. The 3 friends I have referred to Gabriel all love training and are getting great results as well! Thank you for helping me get my body back!

Been working with Ben for more than one year. Fabulous training by knowledgeable instructors who continuously make training fun, safe and productive while pushing each individual to meet their goals. Ben and George make an excellent team and work with me to schedule around my busy career and hectic lifestyle. They offer advice on good nutrition and ‘out-of-gym” exercises. Highly recommend this program!
