Client Testimonials

Check out to see what our clients are saying:




I started working with Cindy shortly after having my first child. I had been an athlete my whole life prior to having my son but had never worked with a personal trainer before. After his birth I was looking to get back into shape but did not have hours to spend at the gym with a newborn. I decided to sign up for a series of 30 minute sessions with Cindy. Cindy really listened to what I was looking to accomplish and came up with short dynamic workouts for me to do at each of our sessions. I was amazed at the great workout I could get in just 30 minutes. Cindy specifically designed the workouts based on my goals and showed me that it was possible to get results in just 30 minutes. I would definitely recommend Cindy as a personal trainer for anyone looking to get in shape or improve their overall fitness level.

I've been training at Studio 1-on-1 once or twice a week for a couple of years now with Cindy and my experience there has been extraordinary. I had been through a period of several years not working out at all and really needed help to kick start a program to get back in shape. They tailored workouts for me from day one that really challenged me but made me want to push through it and prove to myself I could do it. I've seen incredible results, lost weight, gained muscle mass and stamina, not to mention all the comments from friends and family about my positive change. I couldn't be happier with the team at 1-on-1!

  • Sam, Sr. Systems Analyst



I have really enjoyed training at Studio 1-on-1!  Everyone has been very welcoming, including the other trainers and clients. Of course I love working with Cindy!  With Cindy I am getting a workout and learning about form, breathing, nutrition, and hydration all at the same time.  While having fun!  Plus, she checks in on me periodically during the week which is a really nice touch and appreciated. Most importantly, I just feel better overall and have a better outlook since I began training.  I am very happy with my decision to join Studio 1-on-1!

  • Drew, Medical Consultant



I've been training with Laura for almost 3 years now and she really is the best trainer in Charlotte, hands down. When I started, I didn't know much about strength training and how important cardio plays a big part of what we wanted to accomplish. Laura has been very patient with me and my level of dedication but she has always made me drive for my goals. She consistently encourages me in fitness, diet, and health & wellness and has been instrumental in my outlook in living a fitter, better life. Laura is always initiating new training methods to keep my muscles guessing and keeping each work out session exciting and unique. Overall Laura is a perfect trainer, with loads of personality and always making all your workouts entertaining. I highly recommend to anyone working out at Studio 1-on-1 Fitness Training in the South End of Charlotte,NC. Laura and her staff are great friends and truly the best trainers in the area. ‎

  • Luis, Creative Director



"If you are anything like me, you are probably embarrassed about working out in front of large crowds because you feel ashamed.  Well, this is what brought me to Studio 1 on 1.  The studio is cozy, comfortable, convenient and you are not on display.  Like I said, this brought me but this is not what kept me.  The difference between Studio 1 on 1 and other gyms is that you are VALUED. Laura fits the individual with the trainer and vice versa so that the unit works.  Because you are valued, the lines of communication are open and you are free to express yourself.  The most important difference is that at Studio 1 on 1, you feel as though it's your second home because the clients in addition to the trainers support one another and if you don't have support, then you will not succeed.  If you want to get in shape, feel comfortable doing it, receive support and guidance along with camaraderie, then Studio 1 on 1 is the place for you."

  • Stephanie, Financial Analyst



I have been working out with Laura for almost a year and have seen major changes. She knows how to get the most out of a 30 minute session! She pushes me hard while making sure I am using correct form. Unlike other trainers I have had and seen, she pays her clients full attention for the time they are with her. I would recommend Laura and 1-on-1 fitness to all my friends.

  • Kelly W., Dentist



Training with Laura has been the perfect solution for me to get in shape and help my tennis game. She is a master of efficiency, which helps with my busy schedule – we are able to do in 30 minutes should take over an hour, and her location is super convenient. Just as important is the quality of the exercise – we train at a level of intensity that I could usually not achieve on my own, and all of the exercises are targeted and pre-planned. I can just focus on showing up and doing the work (and not get caught up over-thinking it).

  • Cary, Business Owner



Extraordinary Trainer! I have been training at Studio 1 on 1 consistently several times a week for over 7 years. My workout is customized to my needs and I can honestly say I haven't had the same workout yet! I've even worked out through two pregnancies and Laura took the time to make adjustments to my workout for my safety and comfort. I feel like when my muscles start to peak, Laura sees that and adjusts my workout accordingly. Incredible motivation! The studio is modern, clean and very private. The equipment is updated regularly so I don't feel like I'm working out on anything outdated. If you haven't yet tried a Sproing treadmill, this is the place to do it!

  • Kim D.



I have been training with Laura on and off for the past few years. She does a great job of challenging you with several DIFFERENT exercises. It is never boring and she does a great job of mixing things up. She helped me recover from a shoulder injury and was very conscious of how I felt before, during, and after the exercises. The studio itself is clean and well stocked with equipment (not machines), a changing area, a fridge to keep your water bottle, and various nutritional items (drink tabs, bars, fruit).

  • Will, Financial Consultant



I am very pleased with the training expertise and attention I have received at 1-on-1 Fitness Training. I have been training with Laura for several years and have made gains in strength, balance and function... She also has been very instrumental with my therapy program after hip surgery.

  • Clay, Business Owner



Having Laura as my personal trainer has greatly improved my quality of life. Prior to working out with her, I was in rough shape, recovering from an auto accident and afraid to attempt much physical activity. After a year and a half with Laura, I am definitely more physically confident in my everyday life. Laura always has new exercises and equipment to keep the workouts interesting. I like her studio where it is never crowded and always pleasant. Working out with Laura will continue to help me to deal with some of the physical challenges of aging. Thanks, Laura, for having the right amount of "serious" balanced with a great sense of fun.

  • Martha, Artist



I highly recommend working with Cindy at Studio 1 on 1.  She is extremely knowledgeable about the human body and various exercises to ensure you are getting the best workout possible.  After expressing my concerns over my weight and overall health, Cindy has worked hard to create a program that will maximize my time and help me achieve my goals.  I have already seen amazing results, my weight is lower than it has been in a few years and I am starting to see changes when I look in the mirror.  I am very satisfied and will definitely continue on with Studio 1-on-1!

  • Chris E.



As a Physical Therapist, I know the importance of communication with clients to reach personal movement related goals. Cindy at Studio 1-ON-1 is my own personal trainer who has done an excellent job by listening and putting together programs to reach my personal goals. I can definitely say that communication backed by education and experience makes Studio 1-ON-1 a notch above the rest.

  • Francois P., Physical Therapist/Educator



Darius Moore was my running coach when I was enrolled in the Run Fit program at Run For Your Life for two consecutive 9-week courses in the spring of 2015.  I very much enjoyed Darius being the coach of our classes. We met two times a week for an hour and he assigned us homework to complete each weekend.  He led our class in warming-up, running, cool-down, post-run exercises and stretching.  He also led discussions on injury prevention and nutrition.  The goal of our class was to be able to run a 5K by the end of the 9 week period.  He incrementally increased our running distance each week to lead all of us in reaching our goal.

Darius shows a genuine interest in each of his students.  He is an excellent listener which makes it easy to ask him questions and talk to him about challenges that arise.  Darius is a great coach to a wide variety of students, ranging from beginners to advanced athletes.  He is supportive, encouraging and motivating.  I highly recommend Darius Moore as a coach and a personal trainer.

  • Christie D.



During 2012 through 2014, I had the pleasure of working with Darius as my personal trainer. Darius worked with me in improving my overall fitness, but also focused on improving my skills as a runner. In our weekly meetings, I could count on Darius to be prompt and professional. Our workouts were intense, but he structured our sessions in a way that was fun and made the time pass quickly. Under his direction, I made great strides in my overall health, including weight loss, lowered blood pressure, and increased “good” cholesterol. I also greatly improved my form and increased my endurance and speed as a runner. Darius is not only a fun and effective trainer, but he’s an all-around great guy. If you’re in the market for a trainer, he should definitely be your choice.

  • Mali G.



I have been working with Darius since October 2015 on a 1:1 basis.  I first met him through a group running program.  The program was good, but Darius was outstanding as a leader, mentor and coach.  As a result of his training, I have seen an improvement in my breathing, endurance, time and overall ability to run for longer distances.  Darius has been a great motivator and coach.  Always positive, engaging and responsive to my (many!) texts and emails.  I can say without a doubt, I would not be running a ½ marathon without Darius’ training and guidance.

  • Betsy G.



Laura is an excellent trainer.  But to state this doesn't begin to scratch the surface of why she's the best.  Laura gets to know the client; the needs, the goals, the abilities.  And then she motivates and pushes you to stretch those goals, further your abilities, and push you towards meeting those goals and striving for better.  She has an acute knowledge of strength, flexibility and cardio exercises to seamlessly move you from one to the next.  She models the techniques if you're unsure, gives simple and easy to follow advice to correct your form .She knows when to push you and when to stretch you.  In short, she's a one-stop shop. Highly professional, friendly and talented.  You can't get this kind of training in a "big-box" gym.
