    Anuj has been the best trainer that I have hired till date, I have taken help from many trainers in the past with minimal or no result however with Anuj, I have had a different experience altogether. He is pretty knowledgeable, gives you honest & right suggestions and keeps you motivated in order to achieve the overall fitness goal. His workout & diet plan for me helped me in losing close to 7 kgs within a month. I would highly recommend people struggling with their fitness to at least have a word with him and see how it goes. I'm sure with his guidance and support you can definitely achieve your fitness goals. ..

    I finally took the plunge about 6 months back and the skeptic in me decided to get a personal fitness trainer through an app called Urban Clap. Of all the potential trainers that I received calls from, Anuj sounded the most professional and aware. Still a little hesitant, i decided to meet him to chalk out a plan and do some expectation setting. He came across very confident, courteous and passionate about his craft; someone who was extremely well-informed and knew exactly what he was talking about! There's always science and logic behind his explanations; be it the exercises or nutrition which for me makes him that much more reliable and his instructions that much easier to follow. Now after 6 months, in spite of a few misses on my part in the form of a sudden illness and sometimes sheer inconsistency and a lack of will, I've managed to shed about 14 kilos! Always ready to guide & motivate and also be strict wherever needed, whether it was training physically with him or simply following his carefully designed diet and exercise plans remotely, he has invariably been a great support. Here's wishing Anuj and SPT lots of success in the days to come! Cheers!! ..

    Hi, so finally i am writing this, b4 i start lemme tel you this guy "ANUJ TYAGI" , he is a great human being before a fitness trainer . I met him when i was struggling with my fitness issues and had no one to actually guide me or tell me about how a body functions (how a body functions, what it needs and more over exercises that one has to perform ) . Just one amazing day i have asked him after finding his big poster in "DRONACHARYA THE GYM" , about how he built such an amazing physique starting that day and now ,its been almost a year he is my fitness expert . And i can proudly say he is a good soul and he has the vision to motivate to get fit because for initial few months i was being coached for free, i wasn't paying anything and after spending a good spam of 3 months , i have realized this guy should be my trainer because he knows what a body need and how it works and that too with out any Suppliments or steroids . I can proudly say he helped me to gain the physique that i have now . Three months TRANSFORMATION period , i cant forget that , be it diet , protein or exercise , he guided me with everything. Thank you so much much for being there and supporting me and hope to get trained by you soon...

    I was in a doubt to hire a trainer from a website as I have always taken training from the Gym itself. Anuj Tyagi proved me wrong by providing me well balanced meal plan and workout schedule as per my needs. He is the most humble trainer that I have spoken to. Appreciate the way he explains everything. I learnt much more from him online than I ever did during my Live PT sessions in the gym...

    This May sound cliche coming from a brother but believe me if you are looking for genuine guidance w.r.t. your fitness goals then Anuj Tyagi is the right person for you. He is extremely focused when it comes to his client's transformations. For Anuj, it is not only about getting slim/shredding weight or bulking up those heavy muscles. He believes in total fitness. He will prepare your training and diet plan as per your goals. And if you follow his prescribed regime then I am sure you will be healthier........ ...

    I was very hesitant to hire a personal trainer, but after a few workouts I knew I was ready to commit. Workouts with my SixPackTummy trainerAnuj are never boring, and there are always new exciting exercises. It has only been three months now and I am in better shape than I have ever been, and I consistently have more energy. I have lost weight, gained muscle, and increased my endurance. I have also been able to increase my flexibility and improve my balance. Anuj is excellent at providing a full body workout, and at explaining the benefits of each exercise. ..
