“I have been training with Marc for over 5 years now on Skype. What a wonderfully varied personally-designed exercise routine Marc has planned for me over the years. I look forward to my triweekly sessions with him and via Skype, I rarely have to miss a workout! Exercise is so vitally important to me especially since I had my 70th birthday last year! Thank you, Marc!”

– Christianne, Boca Raton

“I started working out with Marc quite a few years ago. Inadvertently following him from a fitness gym, to a Pilates studio where he taught fitness classes and ultimately to his own personal gym. One spring, some of us students were lamenting having to leave for the summer months and miss the opportunity to continue working out with Marc on an uninterrupted basis. That is when the idea to continue through the summer using Skype was born. Now, whether I am away traveling for work, summering up north or even experiencing a ‘time crunch’, I can still workout through Skype. Marc is a unique combination of nutritionist, physical therapist, psychologist, personal trainer and innovator to keep you interested, healthy and always coming back for more. What else could you ask for? I have recommended him many times to friends and colleagues and will continue to do!”

– Tracy, Thoroughbred Software, NY, KY & FL

“I met Marc when I was in a very good shape and I wanted to train with him because of his attitude and commitment towards sports and fitness. We started to work together as a team, based on my background (I was a professional volleyball player) and his knowledge. I have been pregnant the last 9 months and I look good and feel fantastic thanks to my workouts with Marc, which include a bit of everything. He is an amazing person and an outstanding professional, able to diversify and make fun every activity. He knows how to push you to ‘get there’ with a big smile.”

– Luigina, Rome, Italy

“Marc is an exceptional trainer. What I love most is his wide and varied background. It gives him a wider range and more options for helping with any challenge. H works to keep the workouts fun and varied – no boredom here! Marc likes to connect those in his community and offers great advice in his emails for all around good health. Bravo Marc!”

“Following my severe stroke, after 90 days in the hospital my body had atrophied significantly. I needed to rebuild my body strength and endurance. A friend recommended Marc. For several years now, he has helped me so much and I plan to continue with him for a long time to come. He has been great to work with either using Skype or at his home.”

– Sandy, Atlanta, GA

“I started training with Marc and I have to say that my body hasn’t felt this strong and balanced in years. I thought I was fairly fit before he started training me, but Marc introduced me to a whole new level of fitness. He is extremely knowledgeable about the anatomy of the body which allows him to customize and tailor the workouts to the needs of the individual. Because he is very versatile, the workouts are never the same and some days he will add yoga, bodywork and even meditation when needed. I always feel uplifted and complete when I leave his studio. I highly recommend Marc’s services.”

– Nicole, Yoga Instructor, Florida

“It is really my pleasure to write this review. I feel I found a treasure when I found Marc! He is so much more than a trainer. I believe he is truly a “Physical Health Professional”. He has been training myself and my daughter for the past couple of months. My daughter has scoliosis and has a history of experiencing pain whenever she used to exercise. Since she started working with Marc she has been pain free. He is teaching her how to train one side of her body different than the other depending on which side is concave or convex. If you are looking for someone with a genuine insight into health, fitness and well-being, you have found your Guru—-Marc Thompson!”

– Donna, Philadelphia, PA

“As a physician I can truly appreciate Marc’s extensive knowledge of physiology and kinesiology specifically related to his ability to understand and design routines and programs. However, it is his dedication and unfailing support to motivate and tailor workout programs to each individual that sets him apart from all other trainers I have had experience with.”

– Mark, MD, Florida

“Marc Thompson is an excellent trainer who keeps his clients motivated and excited about working out for better health. His training sessions incorporate several different styles like boxing, core training and strength training for a full body workout. He also keeps his clients focused to get the most out of each training session.”

– Debbie, Business owner, Psychology BA, New York

“Marc is a gifted and supportive coach. Traveling around the country has allowed me the opportunity to work with many fitness trainers, but the results I have received with my body after just a few sessions with Marc, has far surpassed any other personal training instruction. Marc is an incredible motivator and has the ability to challenge my body & mind past its limitations. The end result is not only a stronger body, but a new-found self-confidence! Marc is gifted in communication and instruction. Marc is an expert in his field and has the ability to integrate body, mind and spirit throughout his training sessions.”

– Amie, LMT, North Carolina

“As a gym owner and fitness program founder and director for over 12 years I have come to know many trainers, both good and bad. As a trainer Marc Thompson ranks among the top when it comes to responsibility, professionalism and knowing how to relate to clients of all ages and ability levels. In addition, he is a disciplined person in and outside the gym. He not only talks the talk, but he can walk the walk…ask him how he once lunged home from work one evening!”

– Rene, Gym Owner, Pennsylvania

“I sought out a personal trainer who would have the appropriate credentials, history of experience, and just as important…. a personality that would motivate me, inspire me, and occasionally laugh with me as we navigate this journey of well-being. Marc Thompson is all of the above. He is professional, caring, and dedicated. As a physical therapist, my standards are high, and he continues to meet and exceed them.”

– Beth, Licensed Physical Therapist, Florida

“I have been in the fitness field for over twenty years. I have ten published books and have been training for decades. Marc is the most phenomenal trainer I have ever had. His depth of knowledge is remarkable and his great attitude makes training a joy. I am enjoying amazing results and I have never had more fun in the gym.”

-Annette, PhD, Florida

“I highly recommend Marc Thompson to anyone interested in changing the way they feel about themselves and their body. He has incredibly knowledgeable about body mechanics and kinesiology. Therefore, he’s able to zero in on what you need individually to help you achieve your goals. His positive outlook and words of encouragement will help anyone along your journey.”

– Elizabeth, LMT, Florida

“Being a YMCA Multi-National swim team champion allowed me expert coaches. In dancing I trained with many professional level coaches, including a former Rockette. Yet none have compared to Marc Thompson. His approach to physical fitness encompasses the total body with consistent positive encouragement and motivation, creating a driving force within yourself to exceed even your own expectations. Truly, one of the most talented, professional and motivate coaches anyone could ever discover.”

“Three years and 99 pounds…. that’s right 99 pounds… I would love to take all the credit and certainly ultimately I am the one that is eating healthier and moving more but without Marc (and my therapist) none of it would be possible…. Marc knows just what to do and when to do it… every workout is different which keeps me interested and involved… stability ball, yoga, weight training , cardio, pilates, core work, stretching the list goes on and on… there’s food education, massage… and one of the most amazing things is I don’t even live in the same state… I am in California and Marc in Florida… we skype, I know it sounds crazy, but it is fantastic… no excuses when I travel Marc comes with me. on my computer that is…I am blessed to have met Marc and am grateful for his participation in this life changing journey… anything is possible when we put our minds to it and have a knowledgeable professional as a guide… Marc believed in me when at times I did not believe in myself… and today three years later and 99 pounds less…. yay!”

– Sara, Los Angeles, CA

“The greatest compliment I can give to my trainer, Marc, is my level of commitment to the fitness program which he has designed for me. His interest in my health and fitness is a positive force that enables me to stay focused and handle the daily stress of my workday.”

– Debbie, Private Investigator, Florida

“I have had many personal trainers throughout my life, but Marc Thompson is simply the BEST trainer I have ever had! He is extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of personal training, exercise, nutrition, equipment, etc. Marc is very professional, but also makes the training fun and adds much variety; therefore, no routine is ever duplicated. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is considering a personal trainer”

– Kathy, Marketing Director, Florida

“I’m sixty-six years old and no model of beauty and fitness. I will spare you the grisly details. Over Thanksgiving this year, my three kids pointed out to me that I would be pushing up daisies pretty soon if I didn’t do something to reverse the process of deterioration. I knew from bitter experience that I lacked the will power to train myself, so I decided to hire a trainer to force me to get fit. People warned me: “Marc’s too hard.” They were wrong. Marc isn’t too hard, and he isn’t too easy, either. He knows when to push me and he knows when to back off a little. It’s been two months now and I’ve pushed the sessions from two to three a week. I’m beginning to see real results. I feel much better physically. I also feel a real sense of accomplishment. I couldn’t recommend Marc more.”

– George, Delray Beach, FL

“I started working out with Marc after I tagged along with a family member for a studio session. I live in New England, so I did not think I would become a regular client but with his skype sessions I now am able to due 3 sessions per week. I love being able to work out at home and Marc is extremely flexible in arranging class times to be able to make room for me when I have time. I have noticed my core strength and balanced has improved greatly since I started working out. I was never a flexible guy before and never thought I would try yoga but after giving it a try with Marc I have found that it is great for my body and strength and has really helped with my flexibility. I due 30 minute skype sessions and love the amount I can get out of only 30 minutes, there is no drive to the gym and back its just 30 minutes of workout and you are done. I would say my favorite part about working out with him though is that I am never bored by our workouts, every session is something different and new. I would recommend Marc to anyone who asks.”

“I just started working out with Marc and he is the real deal! My first session was so intense I almost didn’t think I could finish it. I was shocked at how out of breath I got after a half hour. I was totally impressed by the intensity of the workout. I was sore (in a good way) for few days which let me know I got a good work out for sure! One thing I really appreciated was that Marc was very motivating and patient with me even when I’m struggling with a workout. My goals right now are to lose 20lbs. I just started my journey and I look forward to doing more sessions with Marc. I think that this is the start of change for me and the path to a new and healthier life style.”

– Adlin, Boca Raton, FL

“Marc is an amazingly gifted, imaginative and intuitive personal trainer. No two sessions are alike, and he always finds a way for me to push myself far beyond where I would go on my own, which is typically somewhere south of Argentina. I’ve worked with Marc at his studio and via Skype, and have found that he is equally inspiring and engaging both in-person and on-line. Furthermore, his knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and alternative treatment modalities allows him to adjust to whatever I’m feeling on a given day. He is always positive and supportive, and I would recommend him without reservation to anyone wanting to improve not only their physical condition, but also their overall well-being.”

“My name is Nikki, I am 25 years old and in good physical shape. I tore my ACL for the 3rd time and did not want to go through surgery yet again. I am a professional cheerleader and needed to get ready for my upcoming season and I felt that I needed more of a challenge than physical therapy alone could provide. I needed someone who understood the physical tasks of my sport and could help strengthen my knee while maintaining my flexibility. I began training with Marc and worked with him twice a week for about 2 months before my auditions. I was challenged, encouraged and made substantial progress not only with my knee, but my full body physical strength and endurance improved as well. I never did the same work out twice, which made every work out that much more challenging. I did everything from yoga to circuit training, each with a specific target to strengthen and rebuild my muscles. Marc took the time to understand the specific tasks I needed to be able to do as a professional cheerleader and made it his goal to see I was able to feel 100% confident in myself to perform my routines. I cannot thank him enough and am glad I can lean on him to keep my body strong for years to come.”

– Nikki, Miami, FL

“Marc is an extremely caring, knowledgeable and creative person. I have been working with him for nearly two years and am always thrilled and amazed at what he plans for me each session. Each time I feel challenged yet cared for and always feel Marc is able to know what I need as soon as I walk through the door (which certainly varies!). His wealth of experience and knowledge is great and has certainly helped to improve my health. In studio or Skype both work very well and I highly recommend Marc to anyone looking to improve their health (cardiovascular, weight loss, muscle tone, flexibility-you name it and Marc can do it!). Thank you, Marc!”

– Carlee, Boca Raton, FL

“I met Marc at a local event and after speaking with him and learning about his business I was really fascinated by this fitness concept he has put together. As a health care provider, I truly appreciate people like Marc that give the opportunity to reach many goals while being able to improve individual life styles. I would suggest to anyone to be exposed to this type of experience and having Marc as a trainer and supporter.”

– Antonella, Boynton Beach, FL

“Marc is an outstanding fitness coach. He knows many exercise techniques, and is patient and caring. Marc had me doing things I’d never have thought possible.”

– Richard, Boca Raton, FL

“Marc is amazing! His varied background brings so much more to his clients than just a trainer could. He’s fabulously well educated in so many disciplines he can offer a personalized experience no matter what you need. I work with him virtually and he keeps it fresh, fun and challenging! Treat yourself!”

– JoAnna, Boca Raton, FL

“I have been doing virtual workouts with Marc for about 4 plus years now. I started when I had my first daughter and leaving the house to get a workout in was difficult, what with nap schedules and not wanting to put her in a gym daycare. Now I have daughter #2, and I see him 2x a week – it’s so nice not to have to leave the house to get a great workout in. Marc is so knowledgeable about the body that he creates the perfect workout just for you. If you’re working towards a certain goal, if you’re pregnant, if you’re injured, he’ll tailor a specific training session. I would highly recommend VF Fitness.”

– Alexandra, San Francisco, CA

“I have been training with Marc at Virtu-Fit for many years and I am fitter than ever. He helped me recover from a knee surgery after PT and has helped me meet my fitness goals since. He is kind, challenges me to be my best and is encourages me to adapt healthy habits. He also accommodates to my travel schedule and is flexible with my training routine. Love VF!”

“I look forward to my Skype training with Marc. In my 3-day a week program, Marc keeps the exercises varied between weights, pilates, balance, yoga, etc. I am never bored with every session being uniquely different! Marc’s positive attitude keeps me focused. I also recently learned that since I began my workout program with Marc over a year ago, my bone density has actually improved! My doctor, Marc, and I were very pleased! I would highly recommend him for a complete excellent fitness regimen.”
