I was pleasantly surprised after reading the terrible reviews that I found. You are paying very little for what you're gettin and with a little internal motivation, you'll get great results. I'm a veteran fitness enthusiast so I wasn't expecting anything when I went it, but I was pleasantly surprised by the difficulty of the QVR classes! Coaches are encouraging regarding which weight to choose also.

I loved how easy it was to schedule an appointment, and how personable all the staff was. Its definitely intense but I liked it. I found it hard to keep up with some of their diet recommendations, though I was more interested in getting active then losing weight fast. If you're a beginner and looking to learn I def recommend Body by Todd!!

About Body By Todd

Although he's now a fitness expert and personal trainer to the stars, Todd "The Bodyman" wasn't always in perfect health. Todd struggled with both childhood lung disease and a ballooning waistline before losing more than 40 pounds and reclaiming a healthy lifestyle. Not only did he overcome those obstacles, he went on to become a black-belted martial artist, serve in the US Army, and eventually marshal his expertise as an active-lifestyle consultant for NBC 4 television. Today, Body by Todd's online resumé sparkles with celebrities such as actor Danny Glover, NFL pro and sports anchor Cris Carter, and recording artist Marti Dodson.

It's not just Todd who has emerged victorious from personal health battles. His team of trainers—which includes new moms and former cheerleaders, gymnasts, and soccer players—has each eked out hard-scrabble victories against excess weight, losing 25–75 pounds each. Todd and his crew have helped more than 10,000 clients reach their fitness goals with custom programs, using straightforward nutritional guidelines and exercises that, like dinner parties spent rubbing elbows with famous Muppets, are easy on the joints.
