"I ordered six sessions of training over three weeks with Ernie Port. In just the first two weeks, I lost 8 lbs. My wife has even begun to see changes as I lose fat and gain muscle. Ernie makes getting into shape practical. He's not someone who advocates any sort of a crash program or diet that only works temporarily. Nor does he push you so hard that you dread working out with him. He encourages a lifestyle change that is actually doable by the average person through weight training, cardio, and diet. I truly enjoy training with Ernie. He has the incredible ability to gauge how far you can go, then push you just beyond that, giving you results that would be unattainable on your own. This, among other things, shows that he is a seasoned trainer. I will definitely order more sessions with Ernie in the future. My health depends on it!"

"A+ for Ernie Port after first 20 sessions with him. I recently moved to Boulder and wanted to continue with fitness and strength training as part of my effort to stay strong and healthy as I enter my "senior" years. Ernie's commitment to me and his focus on my goals and specific training needs has been outstanding. He not only challenges me during each workout, he also provides me with great health tips to round out my program. He is skilled, knowledgeable, and fun."

"I have worked with Ernie for over 14 months and feel great, have dropped 35 lbs., while gaining muscle mass and strength. I appreciate that Ernie pushes me during each session, yet is never overbearing. As well as weight training, he has started to get me thinking more about my diet, and is always helpful when I have questions.
I plan on continuing to train with Ernie and would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a great personal trainer."
Rob Toftness -Software engineer
"I really look forward to working out with Ernie each week! I needed the motivation to make exercise a part of my daily life and he has provided that motivation in a way that's relaxed and fun. Since I started working with Ernie, I'm stronger and more fit and our weekly workouts are always enjoyable. I like having a standing appointment with Ernie, it keeps me moving forward with my goals and I can see the progress. Ernie has a calm personality, so even though he pushes me, it's always positive. Aside from my improved fitness, I've genuinely appreciated the chance to get to know Ernie - I feel like I have a really fit friend who comes to work out with me each week!"
Greeley Sachs -Business owner & Mom
"Ernie is the first personal trainer I've used and I'm very impressed with the experience. He was very adaptive to my level of fitness and specific needs and modified the intensity and variety of the workouts both cardiovascular and on a strength level. Ernie consistently and conscientiously brought enthusiasm to the program and inspired me to continue the discipline beyond. We also worked on nutrition and workouts outside the gym sessions. I am happy to recommend Ernie's fitness and health services."
Johan Erasmus -Database support manager
"I started training with Ernie over 2 years ago with the aim to make workouts a part of my daily life. As I see myself getting stronger and fitter, the initial thoughts of “why am I doing this???” over morning coffee have changed to “Let’s do this!”. Thanks to Ernie’s training, tips, and motivation the BolderBoulder 10km run became the highlight of my spring and I am looking at running a half marathon this fall. Ernie has the perfect feeling on choosing exercises that keep the balance between challenge and doable. He has helped me to find confidence in my physical strength and has taught me how to break the walls along the way. In addition to our weekly meetings I have started to exercise on my own. Yet knowing that I need that extra push and inspiration from a third party I will keep working out with him. Ernie is flexible, competent, friendly and reliable. I feel great and look forward to becoming fitter and healthier."

"I completed 16 great sessions with Ernie...he has me on the road to better health and form. I'm feeling great again! I just signed up for my 3rd round of 8 sessions, as I'm right on track to meet weight reduction goals...with his expert guidance!"
Christian Vanek -Business owner
"I had several goals when I started training with Ernie. In less than a month I was well on my way to completing all of them. He is an easy going and dynamic personal trainer and I would highly recommend working with him!"
Dr. Lauren Kutscher -DVM
"I've completed 20 sessions with Ernie and am ready to take on more! Ernie is helping me achieve my training goals with gentle encouragement. He makes a workout seem easy going, yet he keeps me focused, and at the right intensity level required to meet my goals. He is serious about training but easy going. I actually WANT to come to the training sessions. He is always on time and ready to go. I have trained with many trainers over the years, and unlike others, Ernie is focused on me, not himself."
Dr. John Sadler -Child Psychiatrist
"After giving birth to my daughter and not exercising for a whole year, I thought my body was never going to be able to recuperate. However, within one week of starting to work with Ernie, I started to lose weight and see results.
My overall body tone looks healthy, in fact, I'm fitter now than when I was in college. But what's most important, training with Ernie helped me approach fitness as a lifestyle. On top of our biweekly workouts at the gym, he emphasized a healthy diet and the importance of living a healthy, active life year round.
In short, Ernie is a fantastic coach, who is able to adapt to your fitness level while pushing you to work hard beyond your comfort zone. I'm definitively signing up for more sessions with him."
Ayari De la Rosa -Business owner & Mom
"Working out with Ernie has been a life changer for me. My previous experience with trainers had left me unsatisfied and unmotivated to continue. I was looking for a change in my life and I knew that I needed someone to get me going in the right direction and keep me on that path. After the very first session I knew that Ernie was the right fit , as he is very motivating and makes you want to push yourself with each exercise. He is also very flexible which made planning my workouts around school very easy, which meant that I could always stay on track. I have completed over 25 sessions with him and would highly recommend Ernie to anyone who is having a tough time getting their workouts and fitness to the level they want to be at."
