Alan Freishtat has created a unique fitness training program perfectly tailored to fit the needs of my busy lifestyle. Alan is a consistent, punctual, creative trainer, who challenges me to increase my cardiovascular endurance, muscle strength, and flexibility in every session. Alan provides a clean and pleasant environment in which to exercise, with all the equipment I need to enjoy a challenging workout. I am grateful to Alan for giving me the direction and information to add energy and focus to my life, and for the privacy and individual attention he so graciously gives me during our time together. He has significantly bettered my life.
Alan’s personal training takes a balanced normal approach to holistic weight loss. It’s a program that can and should become a lifestyle. People ask me if I’m still on a diet. I respond that I never was! No tricks, no gimmicks. Just reasonable, well- balanced eating and exercising aimed at a lifestyle change. That’s how I’ve kept the weight off… and the 20 kilos (44 pounds) is still off 4 years later!
Alan Freishtat is professional, caring, loving, understanding and takes into consideration all of your needs. I am personally working with him for the past few years and I feel like a different person. I am more fit than any time in my life and I have been steadily dropping weight too. I definitely have been able “…add hours to your days, days to your years, and years to your life”- under Alan’s guidance. I would like to recommend to all people living in Israel or that comes from overbroad Alan. He is a fantastic personal trainer.
FEELING HEALTHY AGAIN
I have just completed a program with Alan combining his personal training and seeing his dieticians. I can honestly say that I am feeling the healthiest I have felt in years! This program has positively changed my life in many ways.
ALAN FIXED MY BACK
I had suffered a sports related back injury when I was 13, followed by doctors visits, chiropractors, medications and never ending pain. When I was 17, I met Mr. Freishtat during a year I spent in Israel. After a regimen of stretching and exercise, I can say now, at age 30, I have not had any back pain since. Thank you Alan!!!
As unusual as it may be, I developed type 1 diabetes in my 40s. Unfortunately, I was led to a treatment that was not only not helpful, but harmful to my condition. Alan had a connection to my family and I was advised to see him. Alan and his staff helped me to learn how to eat properly and how to exercise in a balanced way. The dietitian Chavi was very helpful to me along with Alan’s training.
For the first time in years, my blood sugar readings have been steady most of the time and the swings that were taking place have all but stopped. I am very grateful to Alan and his staff for drastically improving the quality of my life and highly recommend the program to anyone with a problematic medical condition, or just the desire to lose weight safely and effectively.
ALSO GOOD FOR THE BRAIN
I highly recommend Alan Freishtat’s fitness programs for anyone who would like to feel better, look better, and be fit. Alan has a great team of excellent professionals who develop fitness programs tailored to each individual’s needs. No one size fits all here!
As a psychologist, I can tell you that exercise is one of the most powerful mental health methods available. Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, coping with stress, ADHD or low self-esteem (and many other issues) exercise and coaching can be a very important part of your program. Since I started working out with Alan I not only have more strength, energy and endurance, but I also feel great about my ability to take on challenges and succeed.
NO MORE BEACHED WHALES
After looking at pictures of myself from summer vacation, I decided that I looked like a beached whale. That is ironic since we moved to the Judean Desert four years ago and kept eating the wonderful Israeli foods available to us. When I saw that I could not chase after our four little grandchildren or walk up our hill for a social get together, I decided that it was time to do something. I saw a woman in my neighborhood who had successfully shed many kilos over a period of time, and decided to ask her the secret to her success. She said “I went to Alan Freishtat!” After inquiring, my husband and I joined his “TEN WEEKS TO HEALTH PROGRAM” and had great success. We decided to continue for another 10 weeks just to insure our eating and exercise routines and have met with excellent results. Good-bye to the Beached Whale and Hello to good health,fitness and good looks too.
KEEPING THE WEIGHT OFF
I take this opportunity of thanking Alan Freishtat, first of all for helping me under his personal and friendly guidance to achieve my goal of weight loss. It was a wonderful ten week program that I found encouraging and a clear instruction on the tactics of how to have a healthy way of food consumption and exercise with very minimal discomfort (and without any ‘gimmick’). It truly has become an enjoyable way of life that I hope to continue. Not only this but he has given me direction together with the dietitian on his staff – Mrs. Miriam Botwinick – to actually maintain this weight loss and keep to the recommended menu of ‘life’.I greatly recommend this ten week program for anyone who wants to truly achieve a desire to lose weight and maintain the loss.
THE NEW ME
Alan and his team have changed my life. Many years ago, I tried my own diet and exercise program and lost 20 lbs. Needless to say, I gained it all back shortly afterwards. Alan and Susan have taught me much about good eating habits and sensible approaches to exercising; lessons that will stay with me. Under Alan’s program, I have lost 36 lbs and over 6 inches off my waist line and have not felt this good in over 20 years. I have more energy now to perform daily tasks and actually look forward to “using my muscles,” such as for my short jog to shul or going up the 10 sets of stairs leading to my office floor. I highly recommend the 10-week program and hope that you will feel as good as I do now.
WEIGHT STILL DOWN!
It’s been about 3 and half years since I participated in the 10 Weeks to Health program. Today I got on the scales and my almost-two year old son climbed on as well. Together we were still under the weight I was when I started the program. I can’t believe that I lost an entire-toddler’s weight and I am so proud that after both pregnancy and parenthood I’ve still kept it off. Thank you!
TIME FOR NEW CLOTHING
For years I enjoyed reading Alan’s weekly article in Hamodia. It was the first article I turned to (and still do). Especially on Shabbos when it was even more difficult to keep eating healthy and under control, his articles at least got me thinking about diet more than I would have. I eventually reached out by email to have Alan help me with my weight, high cholesterol, gout and severe back pain (for which the doctor was recommending surgery). I was initially skeptical about whether doing Alan’s 10 week program on Skype from London could be successful but being accountable to Alan and his team during the 10 weeks and having their ongoing support started to have real results which have lasted. 6 months on and I have lost almost 16 kilos and I am enjoying exercise for the first time. B’H my gout has disappeared, cholesterol is normal and I no longer have back pain.
At the beginning of the 10 week program Alan warned me that I would need to invest in new clothes in due course. I thought that was wishful thinking but that has certainly proved true!
SAVED MY LIFE
When I came to Alan, my life was out of control. I had put on a tremendous amount of weight and at a relatively young age, my cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure and blood sugar were all way beyond normal limits. With Alan’s guidance, I lowered my sugar by 96 points and my triglycerides by almost 200 points. My blood pressure and cholesterol both dropped to normal levels and most importantly, I was able to function normally and with abundant energy. I will forever be grateful to Alan for helping me add hours to my days, days to my years and years to my life!!
APPROPRIATE FOR THE CLIENT AT ANY AGE
Alan Freishtat is an amazing professional. Between the U. S. and Israel, I have had quite a few trainers; Alan is tops. He is upbeat; he really knows what he’s doing; he gives you achievable goals, and is very focused on you as a person. He is, however, not a softy; in other words, he makes you work, but you feel as if the regime he’s giving you is right for you, and you can see your progress. I am somewhat amazed by how much he knows; he is an expert in a lot of fields that are relevant to fitness, health and diet. When you put them all together, they add up to a comprehensive program which is very gratifying to a person who would like to improve his or her health. I have lots of confidence in Alan, and … he is fun to be with!
EVEN AT A YOUNG AGE
My teenage son (age 12) lost 9 kilo in 5 months and feels great about himself! Alan, your coaching gave him the knowledge and ability to control his food intake and learn the importance of exercise. You have taught him the advantages of living a balanced lifestyle and have given him the ability to make proper choices. You have really changed his life. He is healthier, happier, more self confident and feels great about the way he looks. You have empowered him to take control of his life at a young age and I thank you for that. The only problem is that I have to keep buying him a new wardrobe every few months in smaller sizes!
Keep up the great work. With much gratitude for giving my son so much health and happiness.
AN UNEXPECTED RESULT
After 2 1/2 months on Alan Freishtat’s 10 Weeks to Health Program I received unexpected but amazing news. All my cholesterol and glucose levels, which were borderline or high before starting the program, were now well within normal levels. Based upon these results, my doctor informed me that there is no need to go on medications – and to continue the good work! Thank you, Alan and Miriam.
FINALLY LEADING A NORMAL LIFE
I joined the 10 weeks to health program because I just wasn’t managing to lose weight on other diets. I had PCOS issues, gestational diabetes and I had been off carbs, starving, and not seeing results. I wanted to lead a normal life, be healthy, and feel good. I must say this program met my most optimistic expectations. I exercise daily, I eat balanced meals WITH carbs, and feel great about my weight loss.
HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE – NO LONGER!
I have had high blood pressure for quite a while and been medicated for it. I joined Alan’s program without expecting any major results. However, after 9 weeks with the guidance, professionalism of both Alan and Chavi, not only did I lose weight but Baruch Hashem Alan took my blood pressure after the 5th and 9th weeks and it went to normal levels for the first time in years. Not only do I feel good , I am still eating and enjoying more food.
I highly recommend them–They get results!!
