I’ve worked out at Mitch’s for 21 years. The past 10 years have been the most rewarding because of my association with the gym’s Master Trainer Doug Slabach. My 5 star rating reflects that Doug is exceptionally great in his profession. He is very knowledgeable about the human body and how to care for it from the standpoint of strength, flexibility, endurance, balance and nutrition; his training methods are not cookie cutter but rather are focused on the individual.

I started with Doug at age 65 and now I’m in my mid-70’s. Through the years, Doug tailored training to meet my needs as I’ve aged. Because of Doug, today I am physically fit and in excellent health. He’s addressed my various aches and pains with various training modalities to aid my body heal itself.

I could go on, but staying with Doug for 10 years should be recommendation enough; if the results weren’t great I would have moved on. If you want training excellence to improve your health, strength, endurance, flexibility and nutrition, you should sign up with Doug Slabach.

I wish I could give ten stars to my personal trainer, Doug Slabach who works at Mitch’s Gym. If I worked with him years ago, I’d of avoided all those trips to the chiropractor.

Doug’s knowledge about the body and movement frames his creative approach to exercise. Each session offers new exercises keeping it fresh and challenging. His precision in utilizing a series of weight bearing exercises and resistance combined with his laser-like attention ensures that his client works at their edge without injury.

Training with Doug was a really smart move. The massage with the deep muscle stimulator at the end of the session isn’t bad either.

Mitch’s Market Street gym is amazing, great gym, great staff! I have been training with Doug Slabach off and on for several years now, and truly believe he is one of the most experienced and committed trainers around!!

I started training twice a week prior to having children and postpartum. He even trained me during my second pregnancy up until I was almost 8 months! I really enjoy the variety and challenge he puts into the sessions, but most of all I LOVE THE RESULTS!

He ensures that my technique is always correct to avoid any injuries and he is extremely reliable and punctual. Always set up and ready to start training ahead of time, with an exercise routine planned. Doug is focused on helping me achieve my goals and makes every session challenging and somehow fun.

I highly recommend him to anyone looking to improve their fitness with a dedicated trainer. I promise, you will not be disappointed with the results.
