I have trained with Russ at the FD for a couple of years now and without a doubt it has been the single most positive fitness experience of my life. My next scheduled session is 6am tomorrow (number 182 …. seriously!) and I am pumped ….. Why ? #1 Russ is amazing - extremely energetic, positive and motivating. I am thankful to know this dude. #2 The workouts are hardcore – personalized, intense, varied, progressive and fun. I am never bored and always challenged. #3 The gym is awesome – private, clean, equipped and welcoming. I am amazed by the ever-evolving equipment and sequences of movements the gym facilitates. #4 The FD produces results – improved strength, cardio, mobility and skill. I can do SO MUCH now that I couldn’t before. If you are serious about fitness and maximizing your own personal potential I would highly recommend trying a session. You will NOT regret it!Dr. Paul J Collins MD FRCSC FACS

Nev Hicks of “Rev with Nev” and Russ Hicks of “ The Fitness Definition” are well educated professional fitness trainers who focus on their clients goal with creativity and zest. Every session is a cocktail of unique and fun exercises; no two workouts are ever the same. You are their focus and their goal is to push each client to the max, mentally and physically. You sweat, laugh and groan through each regime, then can’t wait to come back and do it all over again. After 30 years of personal trainers, these two are hands down the best I’ve met. Thanks Russ and Nev for 6 years of helping me meet my personal best.Kathy Collier

Nev Hicks is a truly excellent personal trainer. She is the perfect combination of tough and realistic! She really believed in me, giving me the confidence I needed to succeed. When I began training my son was only 6 weeks old and it was a great transition to get out of the house and back to pre-baby body. Because of her efforts, I became stronger, more flexible, and more agile; all of which were goals I set out to achieve. I also had the pleasure of participating in several sessions of boot camp run by both Russ and Nev. It was such a fun way to get in shape. They were very creative with the exercises and made me look forward to boot camp nights! Highest recommendation!Elaine Mouawad
