I have been with Phil as my trainer for a number of months now and I cannot recommend him highly enough. Never had a personal trainer before. He focuses on a combination of functional, weight-based, and cardio exercises tailored to achieve your goals. He also provides practical diet and lifestyle advice that complements the exercise routine.

This is actually my second time working out with Phil. Back in 2012 I was looking for someone to help me get in shape and I stumbled upon his website. After booking a consultation with Phil I quickly learned he was very well educated and knew exactly what he was talking about. The next six months was probably the most physical activity I had ever done in my entire life, and i was surprised I had it in me. Thanks to Phil’s help it made it a lot easier to continue on. I was fairly new to the workout routine and the whole healthy eating lifestyle. I didn’t understand the meal plan at first and was confused about how to count calories but anytime I called Phil he was always there to answer my question’s and educate me.
Being in my late 40’s the years were catching up to me as well as the pounds and my fitness level wasn’t great and I knew I needed help. My fitness goal?…total body fitness, lose weight, increase strength…to be fit!
If you are in that position I can tell you from my experience with Phil’s help that it’s never too late, or so he told me. I never really worked out before and getting a gym membership I knew wouldn’t really inspire me and self motivation can be difficult – so what a better idea than having your own personal trainer that can teach and inspire you.
Phil has made me work harder than I ever would on my own. He motivates me to push past my perceived limits to get results. His knowledge and experience will take you places you never thought possible. Having taken the steps to contact Phil and work out with him has been a great experience and for that I want to say thanks for all your help. He has taken my muscles to places I never thought they could go!

” My lifestyle and eating habbits left me overweight, lethargic and depressed. I got to the point where I had to do something because I could not continue living in this state. I started working with Phil and as the months went by my weight started dropping and my body began to take on shape. As a result of Phil’s expert guidance and my willingness to change I have achieved a physique I never thought possible. I now wake up each morning with a smile on my face and I look forward to each day. “

” In May 2012 I decided to seek out a personal trainer as I was not happy with my health and physical appearance. I researched the internet to find the best fit for me and after I read all the previous testimonials of others on Phil’s website I decided I would give him a call. The “best” decision I could of ever done for myself !!!
After my consultation with Phil I started to train with him 3 times a week at the beginning of June 2012. At that time he had provided me with a Nutritional Program based on my own personal requirements and also gave me homework exercises that are very reasonable to do. For every question and explanation that I required he always explained his reasoning or what benefit I would get from such exercise … and I’ve asked many. It is now December 2012 and I’ve been training with Phil for 6 months and have lost 34 lbs and 22 inches overall !!!! I continue losing my weight and inches to date and love the multitude of compliments I receive on my achievements and change everyone sees in me physically.
When I started my journey I had high blood pressure, was on medication (where my dose had recently been increased) and took water pills to help reduce my blood pressure. I currently do not take “any” medications for blood pressure as it is completely manageable and has been reduced (the healthy way) to a safe healthy level. What an impact Phil has had on my life!
Phil takes his training very seriously and knows how to push me physically when I keep stating “I can’t”. How many times he heard that from me. I still continue to train with Phil as I am now heading into the toning and sculpting phase of my workouts which I enjoy and look forward to each session.
I 100% endorse Phil due to his knowledge, expertise and, above all, the results that he helps you achieve. He provides me with great motivation which complements the challenges he sets for me. If you give Phil a call, I guarantee … you will not be sorry !”

Abeer’s Total Transformation
” Its been just over a year since I started my fitness journey and what a change it has been. Not only physically but mentally as well. I could have never imagined that living a healthy lifestyle by working out and eating right can change a person’s perspective in life so drastically. Before I started to seriously devote myself to fitness, I was too self conscious about myself, and in short I was just not happy about myself or my life and the way it was going….nowhere. I decided to get a trainer since I had very little motivation to work-out alone and the only reason I got him initially was to look good. Little did I know the other benefits that come along by stepping into the fitness world.I started having a more positive mindset and a can do attitude with my family, friends, and at work too!
Don’t ever think though that just because you’re working out, you have the privilege of eating junk food everytime cuz you assume you burn it all off. I cannot stress how important it is to start eating right/healthy, because even if you do limited workouts, you will start seeing a drastic change in yourself (physically & mentally). I’d like to thank my trainer and my friend Phil Jelinowski for my trasnsformation in life. You my friend are the best trainer I could ever ask for. This is just the beginning…

John after 6 months
“When I came in I weighed 125 lbs at 5’8”; my cortisol level was high and my testosterone level was low due to having a high stress job and not sleeping properly. After 6 months of training I gained 8lbs of muscle which I didn’t think was possible for me because I’ve tried so many other things before. I would recommend Phil Jelinowski’s fitness services to anyone, especially others that are looking for knowledgeable, supportive, informative fitness training. Phil is knowledgeable in areas of nutrition and physical training. Phil listens attentively to his client’s needs and personal goals for health and fitness from which he designs the most appropriate program. He provided individual training in the form of an efficient program tailored to meet my busy schedule that included flexible appointment times and a comfortable setting to workout. He gave me specific dietary advice, in addition to explanations for his recommendations. Throughout the training sessions, I have felt both challenged and supported by the training that he provided and through the words of encouragement, which is so important to mental conditioning. Phil also made himself available through phone calls and email for on-going consultations. His individualized exercise program and commitment to my fitness goals has been very helpful and assisted me in laying the foundation for on-going physical fitness training. “

” I was referred to Phil by my esthetician. I came in on July 2008 weighing 222lb at a height of 5’8. I began to train twice a week with him, and followed the nutritional program he sketched out for me. After the first hard core session I couldn’t move. I remember going to Wonderland that day, or even 2 days after, and everything hurt. I couldn’t even walk up the little grass hill without feeling all the muscles in my legs. I discovered muscles I never knew I had! It was a good kind of pain though.
Little by little, but not to forget, consistently, the pounds kept coming off. And that was motivation in itself. You know, along with all the compliments. Especially from people like my dentist who obviously see more of a change because they don’t see you as often as everyone else. By spring of 2009 I was at 182lbs and I lost 6 inches off my waist line.
Of course there were and continue to be many obstacles and even road blocks along the way; plateaus were reached, cravings were had, but I kept on trudging through. You’ve gotta leave room for error, otherwise you will never succeed. Having one bad meal does not mean giving the plan up completely and going back to your old ways. “

” I found out about Phil through a mutual acquaintance and wanted to give it a try because I was very weak and wanted to put on some extra weight and shape up. The training regiment was strict and demanding but after a few months the results started showing: my skinny arms got fuller, my buttocks got firmer, and my body took on more shape without looking overly muscular. I was able to do 10 pushups (I couldn’t even do one when we started) and I was lifting 200% more weight than I started off with. Phil is very knowledgeable in designing exercise programs that work and has obtained the highest level of education in fitness. I would recommend him to anyone who has specific goals and doesn’t mind putting in some hard work to reach them. “
– Ayesha H, Family Doctor, Mississauga
” In the 9 months I have been working with Phil I have noticed major improvements in my physique, strength, stamina and energy level. My blood pressure has dropped from 140/85 to 120/70 and my cholesterol level has gone from high to normal. The exercise regiment Phil designed for me is challenging, safe and never boring. He motivates me to work harder than I ever thought possible. I would recommend Phil to anyone, looking for a knowledgeable, supportive and well informed trainer.
– Michael B, Project Manager, Toronto
” Phil is a fitness professional who has obtained the necessary formal education and relevant experience to help his clients reach their fitness goals. My goals were to lose weight, increase my cardiovascular endurance, strength, and flexibility all of which were attained to my satisfaction. He takes a balanced approach and tailors the workout plan according to the individual’s progress. He also thoroughly explains each exercise and willingly answers any questions while remaining fact based. Phil is skilled at correctly gauging my energy levels for each session and supplies the motivation to complete the appropriate number of repetitions for each exercise for optimal results. His willingness to keep a flexible schedule to accommodate my work and home responsibilities is greatly appreciated. Above all he has an infectious and untiring positive attitude which makes me look forward to every workout. I always feel energized after a session and glad that I invested my time and money in my short and long term health. I would, without any hesitation, recommend Phil’s fitness services to anyone interested in learning how to safely and effectively increase their fitness levels. “

” I purchased the Be Your Own Trainer package. I enjoy working out on my own so I see Phil to have him create programs for me. I’ve always been an athletic person competing in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and boxing. I’ve also suffered from low back pain. Since seeing Phil and doing his routines I’ve added 40 lbs to my bench press and improved my overall fitness. Even my low back pain has improved. I’d recommend him to anyone.

” Phil did a very thorough assessment of my fitness level and designed a program to help me achieve my goals of losing weight and gaining strength. It was hard work, but Phil encouraged me to stick with it, and it paid off, as I am leaner and stronger than I have ever been. I highly recommend Phil to anyone that is serious about getting into shape. “
– Amrita Chandra, Marketing Director, Toronto
” I was in pretty bad shape and wasn’t happy with my appearance or how I felt on a day to day basis. I have a very sedentary job so I wasn’t very active and had bad eating and sleeping habits. Worst of all I had high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I’m middle aged so I was beginning to get concerned about my health. When I first started training with Phil it was tough because my body wasn’t used to any kind of activity. But as the months went by I started noticing significant improvements in all areas of my life, not just how fit I was. Phil helped me get into a better state of mind and definitely improved my health and well being. The best thing was that his services were very reasonably priced and he took care of all my needs and made sure that I was on track. I would highly recommend Phil to anyone who is looking to improve their health. “
