"I am now 65 years old and had developed such severe shoulder pain in my shoulders that I had trouble sleeping and putting on a jacket. I traveled a lot and putting suitcases in an overhead bin was very hard. I was diagnosed with labrum tears as well as near full length tendon tears of my shoulders. I traveled to Colorado and had stem cell treatments. Physical therapy was prescribed and since my wife who had a very bad knee and children had gotten such great results at CFC I decided to utilize CFC, specifically Andrew for my therapy. Andrew has individualized my therapy and workouts, and I am now in great shape. I still am receiving laser to my left shoulder but the right is normal. Andrew has also focused on my balance since I have a hereditary middle ear issue and flexibility to prevent injury. I have to say, as a physician, I am very pleased with the science Andrew utilizes as well as his personal touch. CFC has done a great job for my entire family."

If you are experiencing any type of back pain or back stiffness, you need to contact the folks at Columbus Fitness Consultants. They helped me solve my back pain, without the use of drugs or surgical procedures.

Initially, I tried all of the traditional processes. I contacted my doctor, who prescribed Aleve for 30 days, followed by a prescription for muscle relaxers. The muscle relaxers just make me sleepy. I tried both heat and ice-pack solutions. I worked with my massage therapist to see if she could work it out.  I googled stretching solutions as well. 

Eventually, I contacted Andrew at Columbus Fitness Consultants. I saw an 80% improvement after the first visit.  I had additional sessions with Jake. They worked different muscles in the body to address the pain. I can tell you that as of today, the lower back pain is gone. They will be my first point of contact, should I ever experience any other type of pain. A couple of years ago, they treated my husband’s back pain, as well. So, it is safe to say that as of today, we are both loyal customers of Columbus Fitness.

“I am grateful for the expertise and care given by my Columbus Fitness Consultants team. Due to my occupation, I had started to develop neck and back pain. I needed a solution besides OTC medications and wanted to improve my overall well-being. I had my initial consultation in June 2021 with Sarah Wilson, who helped customize my recovery plan. She recommended Muscle Activation Therapy and partnered me with Caleb Reed to aid in my strength training.

Sarah has helped educate me on the cause of my issues and helped eliminate my chronic pain and improved my overall posture with MAT. She is intelligent, kind, and I look forward to my sessions.

In order to maintain my results from MAT, Caleb has been wonderful to work with. I train with him twice a week and have developed overall strength, muscle tone, and endurance. He is very knowledgeable about physiology and encourages me to do my best at every training.

Self-care is an integral part of well-being. I am thankful to Sarah and Caleb for helping me invest in being the best version of myself.”

"I started at Columbus Fitness Consultants in 2008 and I’ve been there ever since. It’s the best investment in my health and well-being.

Working out one-on-one with a trainer at CFC provides me with customized sessions that allow me to work to my potential and keep improving. I have become stronger and improved my balance, keeping me active.

Over the years I have worked with multiple trainers at CFC, all excellent. CFC provides continuing education to all their staff so there is consistency in their knowledge which they share with their clients.

Muscle Activation Technique has also been an integral part of my health regimen at CFC. I started MAT to relieve acute shoulder pain, and it worked. I continue with MAT on a maintenance basis and the positive results keep me coming back.

The leadership and staff at CFC set a welcoming, respectful, and fun tone, and their commitment to their clients’ well-being is evident. This is a good place to be."

"My first appointment was on August, 8th, 2020. I called asking about the radial shockwave therapy for my knees. I started with treatment on my knees and then transitioned to workouts and now have moved into the maintenance phase.  I’m pain free and extremely grateful.  I was able to cut grass and take the dog for a walk with my wife without any discomfort last night. I’ve been with Jakub since the beginning. Andrew provided one MAT session early on in my treatment. I have referred my father for his hands, my son for MCL strain and a coworker for chronic heel pain.

My knee pain was debilitating, and I was ready to schedule replacement surgery based on a recommendation from my orthopedists.  Columbus Fitness Consultants was my last-ditch effort before surgery.  I’m happy I made the call.  I’m pain free and haven’t been back to see the orthopedists. The modalities used at CFC: MAT, FSM and Laser have been the most successful.

Jakub is a wonderful practitioner.  I value his expertise and treatment recommendations.  I called Jakub when my son strained his MCL and Jakub was able to see him the next day and provide treatment.  As a result of Jakub’s recommendations and treatment, Sam only missed one football game during his senior year; both Sam and I are grateful.  Sam received an athletic scholarship to play football at Ashland University in the fall so you can imagine the level of trust I have in Jakub and his talents.  I’m thankful to have developed a relationship with Jakub and CFC."

"I first started coming to CFC in June of 2020 and have been coming pretty much consistently ever since. I have worked with several staff members and they have been very considerate and sensitive to my hip pain in the gym. My hip no longer hurts constantly and they have helped me with exercises and activities to improve it. In my experience, all the exercise clubs/franchises don’t give you the individualized attention and care that I receive at Columbus Fitness Consultants. They really care that your health improves and you’re not treated like a number or just another client. It’s almost a holistic process for weight training!!! Like the Bible says, you should treat your body like a temple."

"My first introduction to Columbus Fitness Consultants was in January 2017, 5 years ago, when my husband and I were looking for a good exercise bike for our basement. I had suffered a knee injury a few years before and had had arthroscopic surgery on my right knee for a torn meniscus. Arthritis had started to set in in that knee and then I suffered a torn meniscus in my left knee, which made it a chore to walk any distance. I decided not to have surgery on the left knee and opted for therapy instead. Traditional PT was limited and did not get me where I wanted to be, so when I learned about the additional therapies offered at CFC, I jumped at the chance to try them. When I started with Jonathan, my knee pain and gait were so bad that I had to have 4 weeks of MAT (muscle activation technique) and FSM (frequency specific micro-current), just to get me to the place where I could walk better and could tolerate the workouts. What a difference that therapy made! Since then, I have seen Jonathan twice a week with the exception of illness, vacations, etc. We have developed such a good rapport that I consider him to be a good friend. I have worked with Jonathan except when someone was covering for him on vacation. I know most of the other trainer/therapists by name and have witnessed the utmost of professionalism and care. My husband and son have also been clients of CFC. A good friend just started recently and is thrilled. Since starting at CFC I have lost almost 40 pounds and can walk better. My knees still hurt some, but doing MAT periodically and FSM more frequently have kept me on my feet and moving. I had a concussion 2 years ago which kept me from working out for about 2 months, but Jonathan was able to help me by doing FSM and by easing me back into working out in a safe way. Recently, Jonathan treated my knees with laser therapy, which I feel was effective at reducing some inflammation. With the ongoing therapy and workouts, I am increasingly able to do more activities with minimal pain. Given that I am 62 years old and was feeling old and less capable of doing things when I started, I feel it is remarkable that I am feeling younger and stronger 5 years later.

CFC is a wonderful place to get help rehabilitating from an injury, but it is also a great place to get personalized attention while working out, and knowing that there is expertise there to deal with any type of sports injury is helpful and comforting."

"I first started coming to Columbus Fitness Consultants in Fall of 2021 and come about 2-3 times a week. I do Muscle Activation Therapy, MAT, and Personal Training and I could not be happier with the results. I work with Sarah for MAT and Kyle for personal training. Since starting at CFC, I have been able to get more range of motion in my knees and my everyday tasks seem to get easier each day with little to no pain. I have also noticed that walking/running and steps are easier than they ever were before and the workouts through the personal training program are fit to the specific goals you want to reach. The staff here at CFC is truly amazing, they are so kind and flexible with your schedules, and you will not be disappointed!"

"CFC did a complete physical assessment of my strengths and weaknesses and developed my personalized workout plan. My personal trainer directs each session, sets up the equipment, demonstrates and instructs me on each exercise, provides new and challenging workouts, and offers unlimited words of encouragement. I provide the sweat! CFC is a values based, customer-service oriented, professional business. My workout sessions are a precious gift I give to myself, an investment in my physical and mental health. Thanks, CFC, and my trainer, Kari, for helping to make that happen."

"Joining the CFC family has been a game changer for me. My team (Andrew, Katie, Jake, and Caleb) has made significant progress reducing my pain, improving my balance, and increasing strength to the point I postponed a 3rd back fusion. Not only are they great cheerleaders, but everyone on staff is always warm and welcoming when I come through the door. What a caring atmosphere! In addition, my program is designed for me. If a technique doesn't produce results, we try something else. No "one size fits all" PT here. The team truly wants the client to improve.

I have been coming to CFC consistently for 8 months (July 2020). I look forward to the MAT and microcurrent treatments. Mastering the jelly balls is my current goal. I have referred friends and my eye doctor."
