TESTIMONIALS --MARC D. THOMPSON,  VPT

"Marc draws from his wealth of fitness and wellness knowledge to give his clients an incredibly personalized experience. No two sessions are ever the same. They are always challenging, always inspiring one to take it to the next level....something we rarely do when working out solo! The beauty of the virtual training system is that you can work out virtually anywhere, at home, from the office, in a hotel....so no excuses!" -Louise, Canada

"I started working out with Marc quite a few years ago. Inadvertently following him from a fitness gym, to a Pilates studio where he taught fitness classes and ultimately to his own personal gym. One spring, some of us students were lamenting having to leave for the summer months and miss the opportunity to continue working out with Marc on an uninterrupted basis. That is when the idea to continue through the summer using Skype was born. Now, whether I am away traveling for work, summering up north or even experiencing a 'time crunch', I can still workout through Skype. Marc is a unique combination of nutritionist, physical therapist, psychologist, personal trainer and innovator to keep you interested, healthy and always coming back for more. What else could you ask for?? I have recommended him many times to friends and colleagues and will continue to do!"-Tracy, Studio and Skype Student, NY, KY & FL

"Marc set up an exercise program for me several months ago. The training includes exercises to help me cope with Parkinson's Disease. My balance and strength have improved and my overall health is better. I sincerely appreciate Marc helping me to be healthy and active." –Cheryl, retired CIA, Harrisburg, PA


"Marc Thompson is an excellent trainer who keeps his clients motivated and excited about working out for better health. His training sessions incorporate several different styles like boxing, core training and strength training for a full body workout. He also keeps his clients focused to get the most out of each training session."–Debbie, Business owner, Psychology BA, Rochester, NY


"Marc is an exceptional trainer. What I love most is his wide and varied background. It gives him a wider range and more options for helping with any challenge. H
e works to keep the workouts fun and varied - no boredom here! Mark likes to connect those in his community and offers great advice in his emails for all around good health. Bravo Marc!" --JoAnna, Delray Beach, FL

"Skype? Virtualhomefitness? Wow what an amazing experience! 8 months 3x per week at home or away and I have lost over 50 lbs. Marcs' gentle spirit and wealth of knowledge has proven to be a winning combination...oh yeah I have also worked really hard. Yoga, pilates, cardio, weight training, stability ball--the list goes on. Body, mind and spirit Marc has worked the whole me. As silly as it sounds he even taught me how to breathe. A unique experience which has changed my life. Wishing the same for you." –Sara, Warner Brothers, Sherman Oaks, CA

"I started training with Marc and I have to say that my body hasn't felt this strong and balanced in years. I thought I was fairly fit before he started training me but Marc introduced me to a whole new level of fitness. He is extremely knowledgeable about the anatomy of the body which allows him to customize and tailor the workouts to the needs of the individual. Because he is very versatile, the workouts are never the same and some days he will add yoga, bodywork and even meditation when needed. I always feel uplifted and complete when I leave his studio. I highly recommend Marc's services." -Nicole, Yoga instructo
r, Delray Beach, FL

 "I met Marc when I was in a very good shape and I wanted to train with him because of his attitude and commitment towards sports and fitness. We started to work together as a team, based on my background (I was a professional volleyball player) and his knowledge. I have been pregnant the last 9 months and I look good and feel fantastic thanks to my workouts with Marc, which include a bit of everything. He is an amazing person and an outstanding professional, able to diversify and make fun every activity. He knows how to push you to 'get there' with a big smile." –Luigina, Rome, Italy

"As a physician I can truly appreciate Marc's extensive knowledge of physiology and kinesiology specifically related to his ability to understand and design routines and programs. However, it is his dedication and unfailing support to motivate and tailor workout programs to each individual that sets him apart from all other trainers I have had experience with." –Mark, MD, Delray Beach, FL

"Marc is a gifted and supportive coach. Traveling around the country has allowed me the opportunity to work with many fitness trainers, but the results I have received with my body after just a few sessions with Marc, has far surpassed any other personal training instruction. Marc is an incredible motivator and has the ability to challenge my body & mind past its limitations. The end result is not only a stronger body, but a new found self-confidence! Marc is gifted in communication and instruction. Marc is an expert in his field and has the ability to integrate body, mind and spirit throughout his training sessions." –Amie, LMT, Asheville, NC

"Marc's the best. He understands the body and creates each session based on the abilities of each client. Every workout is different and fun. You will be pressed to do your best and feel better for it." –Elaine, Meier Associates, Atlanta, GA & Delray Beach, FL


"As a gym owner and fitness program founder and director for over 12 years I have come to know many trainers, both good and bad. As a trainer Marc Thompson ranks among the top when it comes to responsibility, professionalism and knowing how to relate to clients of all ages and ability levels. In addition, he is a disciplined person in and outside the gym. He not only talks the talk, but he can walk the walk...ask him how he once lunged home from work one evening!" –Rene, Gym Owner, Philadelphia, PA


"I sought out a personal trainer who would have the appropriate credentials, history of experience, and just as important.... a personality that would motivate me, inspire me, and occasionally laugh with me as we navigate this journey of well-being. Marc Thompson is all of the above. He is professional, caring, and dedicated. As a physical therapist, my standards are high and he continues to meet and exceed them." –Beth, Licensed Physical Therapist, Delray Beach, FL


"I have been in the fitness field for over twenty years. I have ten published books and have been training for decades. Marc is the most phenomenal trainer I have ever had. His depth of knowledge is remarkable and his great attitude makes training a joy. I am enjoying amazing results and I have never had more fun in the gym." –Annette, PhD, Delray Beach, FL


"I highly recommend Marc Thompson to anyone interested in changing the way they feel about themselves and their body. He has incredibly knowledgeable about body mechanics and kinesiology. Therefore he's able to zero in on what you need individually to help you achieve your goals. His positive outlook and words of encouragement will help anyone along your journey." –Elizabeth, LMT, Delray Beach, FL


"Being a YMCA Multi-National swim team champion allowed me expert coaches. In dancing I trained with many professional level coaches, including a former Rockett. Yet none have compared to Marc Thompson. His approach to physical fitness encompasses the total body with consistent positive encouragement and motivation, creating a driving force within yourself to exceed even your own expectations. Truly, one of the most talented, professional and motivate coaches anyone could ever discover." –Jeff, Delray Beach, FL


"The greatest compliment I can give to my trainer, Marc, is my level of commitment to the fitness program which he has designed for me. His interest in my health and fitness is a positive force that enables me to stay focused and handle the daily stress of my workday." –Debbie, Private Investigator, Delray Beach, FL


"I have had many personal trainers throughout my life, but Marc Thompson is simply the BEST trainer I have ever had! He is extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of personal training, exercise, nutrition, equipment, etc. Marc is very professional, but also makes the training fun and adds much variety; therefore, no routine is ever duplicated. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is considering a personal trainer." –Kathy, Former Marketing Director, Delray Beach, FL
