What are clients saying about us?


When you decide to hire a personal trainer, you are charting a course for your personal best. As you know, achieving your personal best is not easy: otherwise, you would be there now.. Therefore, when you commit yourself to hiring one, you should expect that the trainer has the expertise, dedication and time to help you get to where you want to be. Julian Turner is that trainer. He is experienced, dedicated and knowledgeable. He strictly adheres to good form, attentively refreshes your routines and practices what he preaches. He recognizes that there are many parts to a healthy body. Combining fitness and nutrition equates to an increase in the quality of your life, a decrease in risk of diseases and a decrease in your stress level. He gently encourages full effort on all sides of the health equation. In sessions with him, Julian challenges his clients appropriately. He will drive you to perform a few more reps than you thought possible. He trains for peak function. You never leave in pain. Nor do you wake up two days later unable to function. He insists upon good form and protects your joints. He modifies or alters exercises immediately if you have a twitch of pain or discomfort. Julian trains many different clients. Retired individuals, couples, young athletes, triathletes, body builders, post operative patients, stay at home moms, and so many more. He is constantly educating himself in the field, researching the newest fitness theories as well as vigilantly reviewing anatomy. I certainly look forward to each session I have with Julian as I have trained with him over the past few years. He has seen me achieve my peak form, and helped keep me stay healthy and strong during my third pregnancy. I am confident I am getting the best trainer money can buy.

I have been training regularly with Julian Turner of Reach Your Potential for approximately 15 years. I quickly lost 45lbs and have subsequently maintained a healthy weight and BMI. He also has been instrumental in helping me manage a work related musculoskeletal disorder. Julian is knowledgeable,professional and results oriented. I recommend him without reservation.

I trained with Julian as a college volleyball player during the summer of 2005. I have worked with many different personal trainers in my years as a multi-sport athlete, and as far as knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm for physical wellness is concerned, Julian is one of the very best. Julian is the type of person who will always go that extra mile to make sure you're getting the results you want. He readily worked out with me at 5:30am 3 times a week, as well as made sure I was eating the right foods, and competitively encouraged me during my workouts outside of our session. With my workouts, Julian always made sure that the work I was doing was sport specific and knew exactly what I needed to be doing in order to be in top form for the start of the volleyball season in August. I have never felt more confident on the court than I did that season, and I know I owe that to Julian's dedication to my success.

For the past three years I have followed a series of progressive exercise programs designed by Julian Turner and approved by my cardiologist. They build upon my initial rehabilitation following Cardiac Bypass Surgery in 2004. These programs have greatly improved my strength, balance, endurance and flexibility. I have been impressed by Julian's professionalism and recommend him very highly.

I've been working with trainers, for may years, in many places and you are the best! You are particularily good working with older people. In that you understand the importance of balance and core strength. I am 74 years of age and do not have the dicipline to regularily train by  myself, but always enjoy working with you. You have a wonderful personality, and a way of making training enjoyable.

After joining the El Conquistador Country Club in the spring of 2005, I was referred to Julian Turner to assist me in personal training. I had been to water aerobic classes for nearly 20 years but I felt I needed other exercises to keep me more active. Before I began working with Julian, I was using a cane for balance. After a short time of performing the exercises he gave me, I did not need my cane anymore. My balance has improved greatly and I'm much more active. I just celebrated my 90th birthday and I owe much of my well being to the schedule Julian worked out for me.

Thanks and Sincerely,

-Doris Wade 



I have known Julian for almost 20 years. I have witnessed, first hand, his skills as a personal trainer become more and more advanced. Julian built Reach Your Potential from the ground up and has made it a very successful business with an underlining goal to help others achieve levels of fitness they may not have reached on their own. Julian has been a terrific friend, but most importantly, he has kept me honest with my fitness goals. From nutrition guidance to injury prevention to recovery from injury... Julian has been there to help me with each training session. He has helped educate me on exercises that keep my core strong and my posture up right. There has never been one triathlon, bicycle race, or run, that Julian's advice and positive words of encouragement has not entered my mind and kept me going. Thank you Julian for all you do for others as well as for me!

Finding Julian in July of 2004 was an answer to a prayer for us. My husband at the age of 74 fell from a ladder in April and suffered a sub dural hematoma. Our primary care physician recommended Julian following weeks of physical therapy. Jerome needed assistance with walking, balance and muscle strengthening to help him enjoy an improved quality of life. A few months after watching Jerome improve, I asked Julian if he could work me into his schedule, I was 75 years of age. We both feel richly blessed to have Julian as our personal trainer and friend. He is always cheerful, happy, professional and ready to guide us with different routines that give us confidence. I could write pages of fun with Julian however the bottom line is coming to exercise three times a week is a luxury to teach us and the benefits are healthy and rewarding.

Thanks Julian

I have been a client of Julian Turner's for 15 years. I came to Julian for personal training because I wanted to increase function, strength and flexibility. I was diagnosed with scoliosis as a child and had a Harrington rod fused to my spine when I was fourteen. Since then, my flexibility was limited, and I over compensated my upper body weakness by utilizing my hips and legs for most of my activities. Julian has been diligent and consistently observant of my limitations, and over the course of the 15 years, he has enabled me to regain the strength back in my upper body.

Dear Julian,

It has almost been a year since I came to you in order to get on a program to gain strength and endurance. As you know I had been working out in a gym for several years, but had been following my own routine. I did not feel I was making satisfactory progress. I am now 67 years old and I am running out of time. Under your expert care I have gained strength, flexibility, endurance and muscle mass and at the same time have lost some weight. People tell me that my appearance is improved and I know my posture is better. I know that these results are due to your skillful guidance and instruction. I have been very impressed with the progression of exercise and the way they match my capabilities. I look forward to continuing with you in the future and continuing to make progress towards better health and fitness.

"You never think much about disability, however temporary, until it happens." Thank you, Glenda, for helping me achieve the strength and flexibility to walk without a limp, tie my shoe laces, cut my own toenails, and to increase my sense of well being after my second bi-lateral hip replacement. I can now do things I haven't been able to do for myself in 15 years. Thank you for giving me the skills support to help me become the person I want to be.

My kids participated in Ryan's Summertime Athletic Development program and really enjoyed it. My sons, ages 11 and 13, both saw improvement in their footwork and reflex times for tennis, their sport of choice. They enjoyed the routine Ryan developed for them and the "friendly" competition that went along with it. My daughter 11, gained strength and muscle tone. She really pushed herself and felt a huge sense of accomplishment that comes with completing a tough workout. She liked the program so much that she is continuing it through the school year.

Working with Ryan in Athletic development has brought Calvin all sorts of rewards. He is more physically toned and his coordination has vastly improved. In the swimming pool, Calvin continues to use the fruits of his labors. He has consistently dropped upwards of 4 seconds in each of his events at each long course meet this past summer.

All of the balance and strength from training with Ryan has helped me become the player I am today. He has helped me become the captain of the third best soccer team in the state, make the Arizona state soccer team, as well as get recruited by three division one colleges. I am now committed to Wagner College in Staton Island with a starting position as a freshman and I owe a lot of my success to Ryan. more over he has given me an attitude that i can do anything as long as I work hard and focus.
