Success Story from

John Montenieri

In February of 2015, I was practicing martial arts and suffered a complete tear of my Achilles tendon. Not an injury to suffer at any age, but I was 58 at the time. After two months of non-weight bearing, my stamina and muscle tone had been depleted. Knowing that I wished to return to martial arts, I realized that I would not be able to develop my own comprehensive plan to recover and go back to what I loved to do.

My research for a personal trainer led me to Dennis Blair, and he came up with a personal program to slowly but surely get me back to where I wanted to be. Dennis was able to push me, and I was able to see the positive results of his program. I learned to fight through mental hurdles and continue to work hard so that my stamina and strength increased.

Dennis is a great coach and never wavered on his support and ability to make me better. Fast forward one and a half years and not only am I back to martial arts, but I’ve picked up two other martial arts disciplines as well. I now practice three different martial arts, teach tai chi and also train dogs. If Dennis hadn’t come up with a personal program for me, I would not be doing what I love today.

All I can say is if you are in need of a coach/personal trainer, look no further then Dennis Blair. Thanks, Dennis, you’ve helped me reach my goals and recover my active lifestyle.
