- The weird thing is, nothing important ever hurt—like my back. All the pain—and there was plenty of it—was what [trainer Jay Siefert] called 'good pain.'…The sense of accomplishment after each session was indescribable… – Dorothy Weiner, Ladue News
Four Google Maps users give Studio Element five stars:
- Extremely diverse set of exercises, we rarely do the same thing twice and i'm always exhausted afterwards. The personal trainers at studio element have to be some of the best in st louis [sic], highly recommended. – Travis
- CUSTOM-tailored fitness programs. Comprehensive, including nutrition consultation. I benefited from participating in a 'small group' personal training 12-week program, which was helpful given my budget. Good trainers, good facility, RESULTS! – Jon
