“The results started coming and they haven’t stopped.”

Dietrich is the real deal. I’ve been weight training since I was a teenager, but this past summer, I decided to commit to achieving something I’ve always wanted and never had: a six pack. After 5 months of personal training with Dietrich, I’m in the absolute BEST shape of my life. I’ve shed almost 5 inches off my waistline, 25 pounds of fat, and packed on several pounds of muscle. Now, I just need to find a good tailor!

“Dietrich has created a new me inside and out.”

I’m a 43 years old woman with two children, ages 8 & 12. I’ve always been somewhat in shape, but spending the first part of this year with Dietrich Horsey, my body is now leaner and stronger than it ever has been. Dietrich isn’t just a fitness professional trainer that takes your money and develops workout for you. He truly takes the time to invest in what you want, your physical and mental capabilities along with your nutritional daily intake before he starts a personalized training program. His attention to detail is amazing and can read your body like a book… It’s kind of scary when he knows I’ve cheated for the past couple days….

“These workouts were much more functional, and challenged my body in a way that it hadn’t been before.”

Dietrich helped me win my 2nd figure competition. Dietrich provided me with a personalized nutrition plan that was tailored toward what I was looking to achieve, as well as customized workouts geared toward increasing my muscle mass. He was also able to coach and guide me with my posing/stage walk to assure everything was in sync come competition day. The workouts Dietrich gave me were unlike the training that I did with my previous show. These workouts were much more functional, and challenged my body in a way that it hadn’t been before. I am in the absolute BEST shape I have ever been in in my life and have come so far from my first show back in April, and I owe it to Dietrich.

“Dietrich works continuously to make himself a better trainer.”

It would be very easy to make this testimonial about me, because I have improved my fitness level. Dietrich works continuously to make himself a better trainer. I don’t know of anybody who attends more classes and workshops. Dietrich then takes that experience and knowledge and shows up at every session prepared and ready to go. He designs workout programs of 4-to-6 weeks duration with specific goals in mind. When a program is finished, Dietrich has another program ready to go. My body is continually challenged, with no fitness plateaus or boring sessions. He helps turn weaknesses into strengths, concentrates on avoiding injury, and is very conservative with any injury that might occur. I strongly recommend you try Dietrich, except at 6:00 a.m. Mondays and Wednesdays. That’s my time.

“He is always devising new, interesting, effective, and YES, FUN workouts.”

Dietrich is an amazing trainer and an incredible person. He is always devising new, interesting, effective, and YES, FUN workouts. I have been weight training for the last couple of years, and at the age of 58, I am really proud of what I have accomplished, but in my short time with Dietrich, I have increased both my endurance and the amount of weight I can lift. I feel really toned and strong. We talk about goals and how I am going to reach them. He inspires me to really feel that I can and I have. Thank You!

“I have not only reached my goal, but am now surpassing my goals beyond what I had imagined.”

Dietrich has been my trainer for the past 2 1/2yrs. I initially came to him overweight, unhappy, and with a completely blinded relationship with food. It has been my pleasure…and challenge, to work with Dietrich over the years. I have not only reached my goal, but am now surpassing my goals beyond what I had imagined. I’VE done the work, but there is no way I could have done it without the guidance, patience and perseverance of Mr. Dietrich Horsey.

“Dietrich is the LEGMASTER, believe me!”

I’ve always liked lifting heavy weight, but I didn’t do it sensibly. For years I would over train and wind up injuring my knees and shoulders. However, in just a few years of training with Dietrich, I have not only doubled the amount of weight I can squat and deadlift, but I also have not had one ounce of pain. The key to Dietrich’s training is his thorough knowledge of anatomy and physiology. Dietrich has taken me, smartly, sensibly, and incrementally beyond my wildest dreams and still building!

“I am starting to enjoy working out. Shhh…don’t tell my wife.”

After years of successfully avoiding the gym, Dietrich transformed my out of shape body and lack of true desire. After a few weeks he had me believing that I actually can get back in shape! More importantly, I am starting to enjoy working out. Shhh…don’t tell my wife.

“I was stuck and unhappy with how I felt in my body”

I came to Dietrich a year after my last pregnancy. I was stuck and unhappy with how I felt in my body. So I started twice a week with Dietrich, supplementing with cardio in between. Dietrich also had me record my food daily. It took 4 months of exercising 6 days a week and eating clean until I started to feel like me again. I can easily say I am healthier, stronger, and more disciplined than I have ever been.

“I have been an athlete all my life, but I have never been this strong!”

I have worked with Dietrich for the past year. I have been an athlete all my life. I have never been this strong! Dietrich is so much more than a personal trainer. He gets to know his clients and works with you where you are at the time. He moves you to places you didn’t even know you could get to. Since working with Dietrich I have added 30 yards to my drives on the golf course. Each shot has gained distance and my scores are coming down:-)!! I would tell anyone Dietrich is the guy to train with.

“His skills in individualizing the routines and changing them frequently, keeps it interesting and effective.”

I have had the pleasure of working with Dietrich for four years, and the results have been remarkable. His challenging cardio routines, weight lifting regiments, and nutritional advice gave me the knowledge I needed to lose 40 pounds and recover from a shoulder injury. His skills in individualizing the routines and changing them frequently, keeps it interesting and effective in addressing whole body fitness. It has changed my life and that makes it worth the four hour drive I make to work with him.

“D has gotten me to limits I did not know I could attain, and keeps raising the bar for me! Thanks, D!”

I'm a 55-year-old guy who has tried to work out on my own and occasionally with a trainer over the years. Just when I would start to feel strong, I would hurt my back or have some other setback. I had worked with trainers, and never felt it was worthwhile. No one seemed to understand my 50+ issues, and what they showed me I felt I could do on my own. D has changed my outlook on working out altogether, and the results are there to prove it. I am stronger than I have ever been and, more importantly, my back never bothers me. I am in much better shape now than when I was in my thirties.

“I have found a great trainer, Andreea!”

“My first goal was to lose weight and get in shape, not get big, but get strong and limber. I felt if I found a good trainer (and I have found a great one!) and trusted him or her, I would make progress. That is what I wanted and that is what I found. Andreea is the best. She has put together a program that has been perfect for me and delivered results that I am very happy with to this point. I feel much better, and I am starting to see that I can be one of the fit people. I never ought of myself that way before.”
