Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it, here is what some of our clients have to say about working with Barby and the Energy Fitness team.

Roz B-Project Director, Rozalyn Group
I really appreciate the private sessions you gave me, they were terrific. I love the precision around alignment, thank you! I will happily recommend you.
Iain T-Media and Marketing Consultant
I have been working with Barby for over 5 years. At all times she has been energetic, motivational, thorough and through the process, has become a good personal friend. The results speak for themselves; I am healthier, happier and have more energy. I strongly recommend her services.
Natalie T-Director of Digital and Marketing Content, Universal Music of Canada
I'm addicted to training with Barby. I've seen major improvements in tone and endurance since we've started. I've trained with 3 other trainers in the past but none were able to get me the same results. Barby knows exactly how to push me to my limits and doesn't let me quit until I'm there. Every workout is different and keeps me challenged!
James M - Senior VP of Sales, NBC Universal Studios Canada
Barby is the total fitness professional, she has the ability to customize her sessions based on her assessment and delivers results. I was so impressed with Barby I hired her to deliver personal fitness sessions for my wife. In addition to hiring her through a series of personal sessions Barby ran the fitness facility at my office and provided some fantastic insights in "overall fitness strategy" including nutritional expertise, among many other things within the health / well-being / general fitness area. Truly a pleasure to work with.
Sheila A - Personal Training Client (78 years old!)
Don't expect a one-night stand with Barby because you keep coming back for more of exactly what you need to succeed. And that is: 1) persistence when you say I can't, 2) humour when you whine, and 3) continual progress that you never expected. She is Energy Fitness at its best, for any age...even mine (78 and holding)!
Sarah S - Senior VP of Business Affairs, Universal Music Canada
Barby is a fitness guru committed to fitness and her clients' results. When you have a workout with Barby, you feel it! I hired her for personal training sessions and gained strength and endurance as a result, and also had a lot of laughs! I regularly attended fitness classes she gave at my office as well, and found the classes challenging. Barby utilizes different techniques for a full body workout, focusing on the core, rather than taking the easy way out and just putting her clients on treadmills or weight machines. I recommend Barby.
Sheldon P - Co-Owner, Personal Best Health and Performance Inc.
I have had the privilege of knowing Barby Ginsberg for close to 10 years, first as a student, next as an employee, and finally as a colleague. As a college instructor I had the opportunity to hire outstanding students from the classes I taught. Each term one or two students clearly stood out from the others, to the point of me seeking them out to become members of my team and company. Barby was one such person. Upon meeting Barby it was clear to me that she had, and continues to have, a thirst for knowledge and continuing education. Barby's desire to pursue continuing education, and her qualities of empathy plus her passion for helping others, combine to position her as an ideal fitness professional. She is an asset to our field, and it is an honour to work with her.
Lena T - Facilities Manager, NBC Universal Studios Canada
Barby Ginsberg has been the resident fitness director at Universal’s Fitness Facility for the last 7 years. I have personally known her for the last 6, both as the manager of the building and as a gym member. I regularly attend Barby's classes, various seminars, competitions, and special events that she conducts. Barby is a very dedicated and passionate professional. She has increased our fitness center’s attendance by motivating members to get healthy and fit. She is very approachable and knowledgeable, and members always provide very positive feedback about her.
Sheila S - Teletriage Nurse, North York General Hospital
I met Barby 4 years ago when I hired her to train my then 17 year old son for university football. After much discussion about my back issues, as I suffer from spinal stenosis, I decided to hire Barby for myself as well, and hoped that she would be able help me ease back into a more active lifestyle and to reduce my daily pain. At that time, I was fairly deconditioned, but Barby facilitated my recovery while encouraging me to go past my self-imposed limitations and fears. She inspired great confidence in me, and was very motivating during those times when I became unfocused. Today I have very little pain and my flexibility has greatly improved as has my strength. Barby, not only has been my fitness trainer for 4 years, but she has also been infiltrated into my entire family and friend network- we are all so grateful!
Ron S - Executive VP and General Manager, NBC Universal Studios Canada
I met Barby in 2007 in our corporate fitness facility where she was our resident Fitness Director. I hired her as my fitness trainer, and for over 6 years she continues to challenge me every week. Barby has genuine interest in my specific goals and communicates her vision on how to accomplish them . She is personable, knowledgeable, motivating, and makes our sessions fun, even when exercise isn't fun!
Gina R - Mother of 4 and Personal Training Client
I have worked out with Barby for a number of years, as have my children as well. She is always professional and upbeat. Her energy is boundless, and she has an amazing capability of being able to personalize and tailor her workouts based on the age/gender and fitness level of all of us individually. She always comes prepared with her agenda for each of us, concisely written out and thoroughly premeditated. Her sense of humour and attitude in general always keeps our interest high--she even makes her own musical CD's for each of our tastes to keep us on task!
Nikki R - University Student
Before I left for university, Barby Ginsberg was my personal fitness trainer. I always looked forward to her coming over to my house to workout with me. Barby taught me how to work many different muscles in my body, and I still use this knowledge today when I workout at my school gym. She put me in the right direction to staying physically fit and made me want to lead a healthy lifestyle. Barby had a personalized workout plan just for me because she knew exactly what I would benefit from working on. She corrected my form if I was doing an exercise wrong and could always tell me the reasoning behind improving my form and how it would affect me. She really knows what she is doing. Thank you Barby!
Anonymous - Art Scholar and Writer
Barby Ginsberg has the skill and drive to train marathon athletes and the patience to work out with even the most reluctant and sedentary of clients, of whom I was one. She never loses her sense of humour or her confidence in your ability to improve. I never expected to keep training for as long as I have, and now (almost) look forward to our sessions. My posture and energy levels, as well as my strength and endurance have greatly improved. And my supply of bad jokes has expanded as my waistline has shrunk. Thanks, Barby—you go, Girl!
Adam S - University Student
Three years ago, I asked my mother if I could try out some training sessions from her trainer. Before going away to university, Barby helped strengthen my endurance which enhanced my athletic abilities. Not only was this an enjoyable experience, Barby had me laughing and smiling from the second I started. Time usually seems to stand still when I work out on my own. But looking back on my experiences with Barby, it is unbelievable how quickly that time flew by.
