"Joe is a fantastic personal trainer who is both talented and passionate about what he does. He takes the time to assess your current condition and help you build and achieve a fitness plan in a healthy way... I guess that's why he calls it "TrainSMART"! 

I injured my shoulder skiing and needed to find a personal trainer who could help me achieve my fitness goals while re-habilitating an injury. I have learned a lot and feel that I am now building on a better fitness foundation. It is really nice to have the one-on-one attention and I think you get a much better work out when you are being guided by someone who can make sure you are doing everything correctly and that you are pushing yourself in a healthy way. I highly recommend him. 

Thank you for all your help Joe!"

"Having worked with a number of different trainers whose approaches and philosophies of fitness have varied widely, I have been quite impressed with the work being done at TrainSMART under the direction of Joe Fox.  Beginning with a thorough assessment and evaluation, a program is then developed to meet the individual's goals while being mindful of that person's unique and specific strengths and limitations.

Joe's approach to fitness is thoughtful and is grounded in the sound principles of movement.  Once a strong foundation is built, Joe promotes progression in all aspects of your fitness with attention to detail and enthusiastic encouragement.  His background is extensive and his knowledge base impressive both in its breadth and depth. I have found his approach to training refreshing and reassuring. Mindful movement toward your fitness goals is the experience at TrainSMART."

"After my patients have completed physical therapy I never hesitate to refer them to Joe Fox and his colleagues at TrainSMART.  Joe and the trainers at TrainSMART are in the forefront of personal training in western New York because they use the latest methods of movement analysis and core training.  For the client this means that the training will be safe and effective, not a cookie-cutter one size fits all exercise regimen. The feedback from my patients who have worked with Joe is that he takes the time to watch and listen, the program is focused on their personal goals and the level of challenge is based on a careful evaluation of their capabilities.  TrainSMART is a great venue for exercise for those looking for professional guidance to become life long exercisers after physical therapy or for the person looking for a higher level of functional training to enhance their sports performance or just to simply feel better."

"Joe is a true professional who puts the needs of his clients and employees first. He possesses a rare, unrelenting willingness to learn and master his craft.  He understands the importance of movement quality and the benefits that corrective exercises can bring to an individuals routine. Joe especially understands the needs of business professionals who work long hours and spend most of their days sitting. I would highly recommend TrainSMART's services to those in the greater Buffalo area."
