    • Jeffrey E. - Woodcliff Lake
      Before seeing Bill I was overweight and had trouble walking. After working out with Bill, I lost 10-15 lbs and and have a much better gait. For the first time in years, my bp and colesterol were normal--the only change I made in my life style was working out with Bill.
    • Dave G. - HoHoKus NJ
      When I started with Bill I was a 30 year old man with an extremely weak lower back. I was unable to lift properly and build up some muscle. With Bill, it was apparent that he had a lot of knowledge and experience. My strength increased, along with my size. Never ever once, did I hurt my lower back. Listen, practically anyone can get a personal training certificate now a days, so it's essential to choose someone with the proper education and background. He's like an encyclopedia of knowledge.

      I started training with Bill in the summer and have significantly increased my strength. I can now deadlift 320lbs! I'm amazed at my increased confidence while working out. He customizes every workout to maximize performance and muscle growth. He knows how to make results happen. Bill is a professional and motivating trainer/coach who knows what he is doing.
    • Louise S. - Waldwick NJ
      Bill is THE BEST personal trainer around. I met Bill shortly after the birth of my 2nd child. He customized a postpartum workout and quickly got me back to my pre-pregnancy weight, just in better shape. No other trainer has the ability to motivate or customize a workout like Bill. I wouldn't be where I am today without him.

He knows, understands and respects my limits and at the same time does not let me just slide by. He knows how to train and get results. The sessions go quickly!

      Bill Lutz is the most knowlegable & reliable personal trainer I have ever had the privilege to work with. His method makes the hour go quickly and I feel great and looking forward to the next session when we are done. Bill exemplifies he Fitness Performance motto, "it's all about you." He has worked around my sometimes challenging schedule without a problem. Anyone who has time pressures and needs to make the most of their time in the gym should hire Bill Lutz. If you have a home gym as I do, Bill will travel.
    • Jay Cohen MD. - Fair Lawn NJ
      Bill has worked with my father and his girlfriend, both senior citizens who wanted to improve their general conditioning. Bill assessed their needs and developed a program that was both invigorating and enjoyable. They started gently and over time increased the intensity of the workouts as their level of fitness improved. More then that, the workouts were fun and entertaining as well. Bill brings enthusiasm and a sense of humor to his workouts, and I highly recommend him.

      I have been working out with Bill for almost 10 years now and he has sincerely changed my life. He is willing to adapt to any fitness needs that you want but is also able to motivate you past where you thought were possible.
