Muscle Building Pro!
★★★★★ By Isaac Kahn, Realtor
Lucas James’s knowledge, expertise and passion for fitness has helped me tremendously in achieving my personal goals. First, I needed to gain weight and mass. I was sick of being skinny! After a few months of training and advice from Lucas I was already starting to see awesome results. Lucas gave me a roadmap, and what I loved about it was that it was something I could actually follow. Once I found a rhythm in my diet and fitness training, I stuck with it for about a year on my own. The awesome thing about Lucas is that he programs you to be able to do it on you own, and then he’s right back there when your ready to take the next step! Well… after some time lifting and eating heavy I sure did get the size I was looking for. Now it was time to tone… Lucas was right back there for me with a full new program, and this time my goal was the “shredded look”. After 3-4 months of working with Lucas on the second phase of my transformation, I really had achieved the look I was going for! This changed my life! I now have the confidence, energy and health habits that I never thought possible. Although I am not one of his celebrity clients, he truly made me feel like one. My new look is incredible! Thank you Lucas!
Worth Every Penny and More!
★★★★★ By Dana Stegmeier, RN-DON/CM
My job can be very stressful & I had allowed myself to get really out of shape, I decided I wanted to find a personal trainer who would not only motivate me but to push me to put myself first, instead of always saying to myself “I will work out tomorrow…I will eat better tomorrow…One day won’t make me fat”. I researched several trainers and narrowed this to three then called and spoke to each. By far Lucas was the most professional, realistic and down to earth. Lucas does not blow the “smoke” many trainers do, he also is the only trainer (and he is my 5th…in my lifetime) who explains proper form and his method behind “the madness of his training” Since working with Lucas, I have lost almost 30 lbs! and many inches, If not for Lucas, I would absolutely be so stressed from work that I would be miserable, but thanks to Lucas, I can leave that at work! If you are thinking of going to a trainer, I cannot recommend Lucas enough, he is worth every penny and more! Do yourself a favor and call Lucas today!

Lucas James Personal Training; Change Can…
★★★★★ By Chris Sill, Business Owner
I started with Lucas James Personal Training back in 2009. I had tried other trainers in the past and unfortunately was not able to attain my goals until worked with Lucas James. Right from the start I liked Lucas’s non intimidating personality and his genuineness. Lets face it…these days this is a rare thing to find in any profession! I was very excited to get started because Lucas really listened to me regarding what I wanted to achieve and he worked with me to give me a solution that was life changing. I loved the fact that when I felt certain things I just could do or stand, he created other ways to do things that worked for me thus making it easier to accomplish my goals and stick with it. One of the most important things that Lucas James gave me is motivation and the ability to motivate myself through his positive energy. I want everyone to know that if you have the drive and are willing to work for it, make a change in you life today! Lucas Personal Training will give you the EDGE and help you need to achieve all your goals so that you can live a healthier and better life! “Change is inevitable, but personal growth is a choice” Thank you Lucas James!
Lucas James: Personal Trainer, Motivator!
★★★★★ By Reggie Miles, Professor
I have been working with Lucas James in his personal training program since November 2009. Mr. James has been a motivator from the start. During our initial meeting, he explained his expertise of the field and how he can assist me in meeting my goals. Instantly, I knew this was the guy who can help me reach my goals. Within my workout plan, Lucas created a nutritional plan as well. In addition to taking pictures of my progression every two weeks, he has been very understanding of my goals and has done everything to help me reach them. One of my first goals was to reach a certain weight limit. Within three weeks of taking Mr. James’ direction, I gained 8 pounds. I could not have done this without Lucas. In summary, I HATE going to the gym, but Lucas makes the gym very fun and motivating especially when it cuts into your activity time. However, Lucas will remind you why you are doing this and your end goal. I look forward to our workouts and most importantly reaching my goals. It feels great when an individual says –Wow, you have been going to the gym because they can see the change. Therefore, if you are searching for a personal trainer, I highly recommend Lucas as he rocks!
LUCAS IS THE …BEST!!!
★★★★★ By Alf Bernardo, Nursing Manager
I have been going to the gym for the past 10 years now and I have been with many Personal Trainers but I have gotten the best results with Lucas. He is very dependable and is goal oriented. I have told him many times that my old trainers would always tend to hold back when they see improvement to keep you on the hook. But not with Lucas, he makes sure we are always on target with our goals. I have received many compliments on the way I look and not only that I feel really good and my stress level have dropped considerably. I used to run marathons and I thought I was healthy but while working out with Lucas I found out I could do more. Also the diet part is easy and sensible, I eat more now (6 meals) than when I was on my other diets. Keep it up buddy… your the BEST!!!
Lucas James Personal Training, Scottsdale
★★★★★ By Brooks Holcomb, Attorney
I have worked out with Lucas numberous times over the years and have been thoroughly impressed with knowledge of both diet mechanics and how to develop muscle mass and/or tone down. The clients I have referred to him for personal training have been completely satisfied and very complimentary of his services. His high-energy personality is infectious and is a great asset when trying to fight thru some of the more grueling workouts!”
Lucas is my motivator!
★★★★★ By Claudia Verela, Actress & Model
As a professional model, being in tip top shape most often determines whether or not you book that job. Lucas James is my inspiration! His enthusiasm is contagious and his health and diet tips keep me on track and encourage me to lead a healthier and fitter lifestyle! No more late night drive by McDonald’s french fry runs for me! Thanks Lucas!
Giselle? Yes please.
★★★★★ By Margo Hoffarber, Dental Sales Rep
Growing up, I had always been involved in sports, and I can’t say I’ve ever been overweight, but now that I’m a bit older, and working full time, it seems like my body isn’t quite what it use to be. Ice cream for breakfast? Sure! Doritos for lunch? Why not!? Lucas taught me the do’s and don’t of healthy nutrition. He put together a meal plan for me that I like and can stick with. And by meal plan, I’m not talking Lean Cuisines or Slim Shakes, I mean REAL FOOD. After the first month, not only did I see an improvement in my waistline, but my hair, skin, nails, everything seemed… well… healthier! I was on a rolI…and not like the ones that use to be on my stomach. I made it very clear to Lucas that I didn’t want to look like Rambo, but I was actually considering working out and lifting weights. Lucas put together a workout regimen for me that got my body tight and toned in just a few weeks, and I didn’t feel like I was spending hours in the gym. Whether you are wanting to drop 50 and look like Giselle, or maybe just want to be healthier, Lucas is your guy. I made a lifestyle choice to get back in shape and Lucas is the one that made it possible.
He won’t let me cheat!
★★★★★ By Holly Larson, Business Owner & Mother
Lucas has been my motivation! He is always there to encourage me to workout. He stays on me, and when we train, he won’t let me cut my reps or workout short. No matter how much I whine. And he always does this with a smile, and an upbeat attitude. Lucas is so enthusiastic about fitness, that it helps me. The fact that he is a perfect example of what he preaches, is a great motivator too. I have referred Lucas to all of my friends, he is the most professional trainer I have ever worked out with.
Very Impressed with Lucas!
★★★★★ By Kourtney Hoffarber, School Teacher
I am an avid female runner and I was looking for another way to tone my arms, legs, and abs. After training with Lucas I couldn’t be more happier with my body. Lucas gave me the perfect workouts to help me achieve my personal goals. While working out with Lucas, he is always motivating, positive, and energetic (even early in the morning). In addition, Lucas is professional, reliable, and knowledgeable in all aspects of fitness, nutrition, and strength training. I would recommend Lucas to anyone that is serious about achieving their personal fitness goals! Thank you Lucas!
Toned at 51!
★★★★★ By Captain Mark Anderson, Pilot
As a professional pilot, I spend a lot of time sitting in the Captains seat. Five years ago, I started doing a daily exercise routine as well as taking Karate. Since then, I completed black belt, but had plateaued in the exercise portion of my training. Then one day last summer I had the unique opportunity to receive a morning of personal training with Lucas James. He had me doing the most incredible chest, back and ab workout I have ever experienced. The variety of pushups, pullups and ab sets were truly unique. Plus, he kept me motivated and focused, which is part of his training in mental discipline. Following Lucas James Personal Training program, as well as his dietary recommendations, I have had stunning results. I am more toned now than at any time in my life, which for a 51-year old guy is beyond exceptional. Thanks Lucas!
★★★★★ By Dr. Badyal, Dentist
I received personal training from Lucas James for several months and I can truly say I am in the best shape I’ve been in since high school. I have had full blood tests done just before starting my workout programs and a couple months after. Not only do I look and feel better, but my cholesterol has dropped exactly 24 points and overall my blood profile looked better by just following his workout and diet programs. Thanks Lucas!
Best Personal Trainer! Life Changing Experience
Lucas James has helped me tremdously! I have been weight training for 13 years and have a background in
track and competitive skiing. I have competed in fitness and figure
and know my way around the gym. I found Lucas after becoming
frustrated with the trainers and programs available at the gyms I
belonged to. I had wasted countless dollars and hours with people that
I felt couldn’t design programs to fit me. Sometimes I felt I knew
more about training than my trainers! I was skeptical but Lucas came
through on his promise to challenge and motivate me. During the time I
was training with Lucas I went through a difficult divorce, move, and
job transition. I cannot say enough positive things about my training
experience with Lucas. He was completely willing to adapt and meet me
where I was, but was not willing to accept excuses. I had gotten into
an unhealthy routine of under-eating and excessive cardiovascular
exercise that wasn’t working for me. Lucas taught me that I was
catabolizing my muscle by not replenishing it with adequate protein. I
needed to re-focus on gaining weight, proper nutrition and reducing my
cardiovascular exercise in favor of weight training. I wouldn’t and
couldn’t have made these changes without the education and support
that Lucas provided. He is a daily inspiration in the way he lives his
life, with integrity. He sticks to his word and follows through on his
goals and promises. It helped me to see that I can do the same and set
and achieve goals to keep myself healthy.
