Icon Gym Success Stories

Adam Foote, Icon Gym Testimonials

Dave Shutler is literally the best personal trainer and coach this side of the Mississippi! He's trained me and many of my friends and family to get in the best shape of our lives. I've never met another trainer that has the knowledge and experience Dave has. And his ability to explain all the nutritional and exercise details in a way that we can understand them is what this industry needs more of. Dave will forever be our go-to resource for all things health and fitness. Keep it up Dave! You are truly the best!

Jen Peters, Icon Gym Testimonials

Dave has trained me for about a year on and off. I always end up coming back to him because my workouts with him are SO much better than without him. Besides the fact that he is fun to train with, he pushed me harder than I thought I could be pushed. If I had any health or fitness question he always had a knowledgeable answer ready to share. I appreciated that he was much more than just a trainer but also helped me with the nutrition side of things as well. If you are ready to transform your body and lifestyle- Dave and icon gym are the way to go.

Caleb Armstrong, Icon Gym Testimonials

The first thing that I noticed about Dave Shutler was his genuine enthusiasm for working with me. Over the months that he has trained me, Dave’s sincerity and deep knowledge of all aspects of fitness have never failed to impress me. I am always continually impressed by his humility too. He can shift gears from a casual conversation to an in-depth discussion about fitness and never come across as if he is lecturing or condescending.

This enthusiasm, attention to detail, and sincerity is something that was a pleasant surprise. I had never worked with a personal trainer before this year and, I suppose, I had some thoughts regarding what to expect from one.

Needless to say, Dave blew my expectations out of the water. He is approachable and kind, and is ceaselessly engaged in the success of his clients. Despite the intensity of some of the workouts, and the jelly-legs that they may produce, he is there to push you; he is always in your corner. He is your strongest ally while you are pursuing your goals.

It’s easy enough to become jaded when working with clients but not once have I felt as if Dave didn’t want to be there working with me to achieve my goals. He possesses an innate ability to motivate you to do better, and your successes are that much stronger because of his genuine belief in you.

He’ll make you push yourself, and those successes won’t be painless. There’s no question about that. It won’t be easy. It shouldn’t be. But it’s a hell of a lot easier with Dave at your side.

Richard N England , Icon Gym Testimonials

Wow where to start, well to put it in simple and easy terms. Dave has changed my life, he has made training and going to the gym the highlight of my day. I have lifted for a long time but could never get over that edge, or loose that last 5% body fat that I wanted, well Dave changed all of that. His nutritional guidance and outstanding custom workout programs are tailored to your specific needs not some cookie cutter routine that was taken out of the latest edition muscle fitness.

He's been able to help me fully understand how to work out properly ensuring that old injuries do not occur again and encourages me to push myself. He willingly shares his expertise with you to make the sessions fun, challenging, and a learning experience. He is easy to relate to and has a good sense of humor which helps to motivate me.

Most importantly Dave is an amazing friend, he is always putting others before himself and working with people in anyway to help them achieve there fitness and life goals. I am truly blessed and can not offer a higher recommendation for a personal trainer.

I trained with Dave for a couple years now. I was working towards competing in my first Figure Competition. Although I have been in shape and worked out my whole life I had no idea what I was doing when it came time to compete. Dave worked with me tirelessly and I got 2nd place in my first show! Dave made the process so easy & fun and was always there to support me when I needed him. I would recommend him to anyone!

Luke Leaman, Icon Gym Testimonials

I've spent the last four years meeting with and teaching thousands of coaches from all over the world. By far Dave Shutler is one of the best coaches I've had the pleasure of knowing and working with. His thirst for knowledge and attention to detail make him an anomaly in a sea of personal trainers. I consider Dave not only a great coach, but also a great friend with the highest standards of work ethic, trust, and loyalty. If i were looking for a coach for myself, Dave is one of the first guys I would contact. I would highly recommend Dave and Icon Gym.

Shane Whittle, Icon Gym Testimonials

I HIGHLY recommend Icon Gym and its owner, Dave Shutler. If you are serious about your health and fitness you need to invest in Dave's coaching! I've had the privilege to work with Dave Shutler for over 4 years and in that time, I've made serious lifestyle changes. Through Dave's guidance and expertise of proper diet, supplementation and training I was able to transform my body from 22% body fat to 8% body fat while adding a tremendous amount of muscle. In addition, I've learned healthy habits I will carry with me throughout my life. Working with with Dave Shutler and Icon Gym has been one of the best investments of my life. He will change you for the better!

Kadya Araki, Icon Gym Testimonials

I couldn't speak more highly of Icon gym and Dave. Dave has completely changed the way I think about training and dieting. I was the typical under-eater before I started training at Icon gym. I thought that severely restricting my calories was the way to get lean. Through Dave's coaching and support inside and outside of the gym, I've managed to completely change my mindset. I'm eating more than I ever was before, and am getting leaner at the same time.

Dave truly cares about the best interest of everyone he works with. He is extremely knowledgable about everything fitness and nutrition related. His emphasis on form and technique in the gym has corrected a shoulder issue that I had been dealing with for months prior to starting with him. He also tailors his approaches with his clients based on their individual needs and goals.

Plus, there is an infrared sauna in the gym! I highly recommend Icon gym to everyone.

Jeffrey German, Icon Gym Testimonials

A trainer who actually cares about the results his clients achieve, sometimes more than the client themselves. Dave definitely knows what he is doing and helped get me back on track in the gym when nothing i was doing was working.

Alesia Lewis, Icon Gym Testimonials

Dave is very knowledgeable and not your "cookie cutter" trainer. His knowledge expands beyond a basic personal training certification and he is always out learning more. Dave helped me figure out a nutrition plan suitable for the workouts we were doing and I saw results very fast. If you are looking for a trainer who knows what he is talking about - Dave is your guy. I love that Dave is very fit himself and actually practices what he teaches you as a client.

Corinne Petty, Icon Gym Testimonials

I trained with Dave for just over six months before he had to relocate to open his new fitness center. When Dave moved it was a real loss for our gym and his local clients. The time I spent with him was by far the most focused and productive that I have spent in a gym. Easily the best trainer I have ever worked with.

Dave's strongest asset is his ability to listen to his clients individual goals and needs. He targets sessions to those needs specifically, whether it is stength training or cardio fitness. He applies his expert level knowledge and practical experience with weight training and fitness to each session.

Moreover, and this is where Dave truly surpasses all other trainers, his wealth of knowledge on the human body from nutrition to supplements, to the importance of sleep and low stress levels is incredible. He advises on life hacks to achieve true health and fitness, such as nutrition and lifestyle needs. In this way, he is not just a physical trainer, but a true health and wellness mentor.

I give Dave my absolute highest recommendation and endorsement!

Christopher Infantino, Icon Gym Testimonials

I can't recommend Dave Shutler of Icon Gym enough... I've had the pleasure of training with Dave for over three years. What separates Dave in my mind and experience has been his genuine caring of getting the results you set out for. It's not a simple "Here's a few workouts and a diet plan, follow them and you'll be good". It's a deep dive into your own person needs and results. Everyone's body, goals, and metabolism are different and Dave has demonstrats he can adapt his training style to your specific situation.

Dave is a great trainer. You can tell almost immediately that he is 100% dedicated to his clients and their progress. He explains things in a way that is easy to comprehend. I loved working with him. I always felt my training was challenging and effective. Professionally, Dave is one of the best trainers I have worked with. He was always readily available if I had questions or concerns. After a few weeks working together, I saw noticeable changes in my physique and body composition. Dave is not not extremely knowledgeable about health and fitness, but he is also one of the nicest and caring guys I have encountered. I would recommend him to anyone at any fitness level looking to make positive changes in their life!

As a competitive athlete for many years it can be tough breaking through mental and physical plateaus. Icon Gym (and the owner Dave in particular) has not only motivated me to consistently strive for my best self, but has encouraged me to view fitness from a whole new (and healthier) perspective. Forget about preconceived notions of diet/fitness and open your mind to what Icon Gym has to offer. Dave is an enthusiastic, humble and extremely genuine guy. His approach to diet/fitness is innovative, realistic, and backed by science. I'm so pleased with my experience!

I signed up with Dave about a year and half ago. I was always into fitness and had been training for years prior, I always thought I knew what it meant to be fit and healthy. However, Icon Gym and Dave have totally changed my perspective on training and what it actually means to live healthy. Dave is extremely knowledgable in dieting and the factors effecting performance outside of the gym. Dave has opened my mind to not only new training techniques, but also a new lifestyle. Working with Dave has completely changed the way I approach every day. Dave will create a plan specific to the person, regardless of your experience or level of fitness. He is a great leader both in and outside of the gym. He has elevated my performance on so many levels. I highly recommend Dave and Icon gym.
