Outstanding personal trainer, outstanding individual. Truly appreciate the fitness program Eke has developed and delivers on an ongoing basis for the Mendon Fire Department. He clearly understands our needs as a group, but also believes in variety as no two programs are the same. Eke is not just a valuable resource to the department, he is considered a member of the department.
As a star rating, Eke is 5 stars!
I have had several Fitness Trainers over the years. Eke by far has been the best trainer , health and fitness coach ever. Those who I have referred to training with Eke have had similar exceptional experiences with him. We all agree he is super fun to train with too.
Eke is second to none when it comes to personal training. Eke has worked with me diligently to develop an individualized workout routine to fit my personal goals. He has also become a great asset to the Mendon Fire District in helping keep all of our firefighters in shape and motivated to live a healthy lifestyle.
In January of 2019 at the age of 57yrs, I went to my Primary care Doctor for my yearly physical. The results were terrible. I weighed 240lbs, heaviest in my life, blood cholesterol over 300, and A1C for diabetes at the limit to start treatment. This news motivated me to do something about it. I joined IslandFit in April of 2019 and began Cycling and doing HIIT classes 4x per week. I just saw my Doctor in July for a follow-up and my weight is down to 220lbs, cholesterol at 200 and A1C back to normal limits. This is a lifestyle change facility. I love the support from Eke, Claudette and my IslandFit family of members. Thank you all for your support, I could not have done it without you all! Peace and Love.
For 2 years I have been going to Eke’s classes at the Mendon Fire Department. I’ve never stayed this long with any type of fitness program until working with him. Our group consist of different abilities and age levels. Eke is able to challenge those who need it and also make accommodations. Everyone feels welcomed and respected. His style motivates us to keep coming back.
When I started working out with Eke I wasn’t sure how comfortable I would be but he put me at ease and made me feel comfortable. Eke is patient and pushes you to a higher level. The first few weeks I didn’t think I would come back but over a year later I come every week looking forward to working out and getting stronger. I feel better and have more energy and I look forward to working out. Eke goes out of his way to make his class fun and productive. Anyone who has him as a trainer or are in one of his classes is fortunate and will exceed your goals.
I have been training with Eke in both individual and group training sessions through the fire department for over 10 years. He has created programs for all fitness abilities and is always introducing us to new and challenging fitness routines. He makes the group workout enjoyable and has the skills and knowledge to tailor specific exercise routines for myself and the other members.
I’ve been active and played sports my whole life, but at 38 years old with 2 kids I currently feel that I’m in the best shape of my life. The purpose of training to me is to be functionally strong and fit- this means that on any given day I can haul the seats out of my car, move 20 wheelbarrows full of compost into my garden, run a marathon, climb 5 mountains, or just have enough energy to keep up with my 3 and 5 year olds. My goal is to be healthy and active for the rest of what hopefully is a long life- and Eke’s approach is helping me achieve that. With the help of technology like MyZone as well as years of experience, Eke knows just how hard to push me to get me out of my comfort zone while still being able to complete every workout and be recovered and ready for more the next day. In addition to the physical improvements I’ve seen, working out with Eke has also had a positive effect on my mental well being. Having a solid exercise routine has helped me sleep better and reduce stress, and Eke in particular is excellent when it comes to being supportive and building confidence. He helps me tap into my inner beast and makes me feel like there is nothing I can’t achieve! I would highly recommend Eke and Island Fit to anyone who is looking to improve their fitness as well as their overall wellness.
I’ve been an athlete for most of my life, whether it’s figure skating, hockey, hiking, running, rugby, biking, boxing, muay thai, etc. So being active, fit and training towards a goal is something that’s very important to me, yet I still often experience peaks and valleys in my level of fitness. I sometimes struggle to make time, and go through phases of discipline and drive to zero motivation, which is very frustrating to me. I’ve never done or really considered personal training before, but after complaining about my current fitness lull to a friend, she recommended Eke and IslandFit to help me get back on track. I’m so glad I took her recommendation for a variety of reasons but mostly because it is exactly what I need to get back in shape and stay consistent with training! Eke is so knowledgeable, patient, encouraging and supportive. He really takes time to understand your goals, assess strengths and weaknesses, and caters your training sessions to strengthen weak areas and correct muscle imbalances, to enhance power and improve performance. Utilizing MYZONE heart rate monitors is a great tool that gives instant feedback on training effort and provides motivation in real time. Truly intelligent training. The facility is pristine and has a lot of equipment I haven’t seen in other gyms. The atmosphere is very positive and non-judgmental. Basically, I can’t say enough great things about Eke and IslandFit. The classes are also great! Training and attending cycling classes is 100% the reason why I did well in my last triathlon. I look forward to every training session to improve my level of fitness, build strength and power. Eke keeps me accountable for rebuilding, maintaining fitness and working towards new goals!
Check IslandFit out.
I have been working out for 40 years. Have done aerobics, CrossFit, weightlifting, and run thousands of miles. After working out at IslandFit for the last couple of months I feel I am in the best overall shape I have ever been in. Eke pushes you past the point where you would quit working out alone. His Cycling Classes are challenging but you can still set your own individual level. Eke’s HITT classes are very challenging and as tiring as most of the WOD’s I’ve done. Training with the MyZone heart rate monitor provides instant feedback on how hard you are training and when to back off. My resting heart rate has dropped to 50 bpm for the first time ever!
Overall, a great experience, and I plan to continue training with Eke at IslandFit.
As a personal friend and long time colleague of Eke Aiono, he is an amazing professional and one if the best in the field. Congratulations Eke on this new endeavor. You will do well and the Rochester community is lucky to have you. Good luck my friend and I will be coming to visit!!
