My husband and I have been working out at Body by Choice for almost a year now. Our trainer is Nate and he is an... awesome trainer. We enjoy the privacy of the gym and the one on one training we get. I have felt stronger, healthier and more motivated to workout since I have been going to Body by Choice. We also have three kids that are ages 21-24 that also work out at the gym and have loved it. I would recommend this to gym to any age that is looking to start working out or getting into a workout routine.read more

I have recently joined Body By Choice and could not be happier. The owner Nick and my trainer Kolby have put together a... personalized plan to get me back in shape and help relieve some of my chronic pain. Kolby pushes me every workout and I trust in his process. Also meeting with the nutritionist has completely changed my eating habits. The education about nutrition is priceless. I have renewed hope that I will meet and exceed my fitness goals.read more

I just finished my first 12 weeks at BBCT and absolutely love it there. I trained with Kolby, who I think is an amazing... trainer. He tailored my program to fit my goals while also helping me recover from meniscus surgery and rebuild strength in my knee. He really knows his stuff and taught me a lot during our sessions, plus he made it fun. The staff there is great and are all very friendly. Tiffny overhauled my diet and made my eating habits much healthier. The benefits of the personalized, one-on-one training have been extremely evident since I started, and I'm looking forward to seeing how I continue to progress. I would recommend BBCT to anyone and everyone.read more

I would give six stars if I could! I cannot recommend BBCT highly enough. This place has a nice private atmosphere... which is perfect for someone like me who is still early on in their fitness journey. I never feel self conscious or judged by anyone which can be a big fear for a newbie. I work with Stephanie and she is AWESOME!! If you can laugh with someone at 6am while you're pushing through a tough workout then they're doing something right! If there's something that she introduces that needs to modified, she can show you different ways to do it which is great. She's good at giving you the "why" behind what we're doing. I also enjoy the check-ins with Tiffny - she has a ton of knowledge on how your body is processing not only the food we consume but also products we interact with daily. I am definitely loyal to BBCT now and in the future. Honestly it's not even near where I live and work and it's so worth it to drive out there. I could not have started this fitness journey without them.read more

The knowledge that Nick & the rest of the trainers bring is something beyond any gym I have ever been a part of. Their... genuine interest in helping accomplish your health & fitness goals is also on a level that is beyond what most gyms/trainers offer. They are truly the best of the best & highly recommend if you're looking to change your lifestyle.read more

Far and away the best gym and personal training in West Michigan. Nick and company put in a lot of work to make sure... you have a complete plan (workout, nutrition, supplementation) tailored to your specific needs. I've worked with Nick, Nathan, and Tiffny. They (and the rest of the team) are awesome! The facilities are first class and I love the private gym experience. I highly recommend BBCT to everybody. Tell them Austin sent you!read more

I have been going to BBC since January, and it has been a great experience. The equipment is in good shape, the staff... is friendly, and the gym is always very clean. After an initial meeting with the owner, Nick, I was paired up with AnnaMarie as my trainer. She is awesome and everything a trainer should be: smart, invested in her clients, willing to push you to achieve your goals, and funny (read: willing to give my sarcasm right back to me during my workouts). Highly recommend AnnaMarie and BBC to anyone who is looking to meet their fitness goals.read more

I have been going to Body By Choice Training since June. I have completed one twelve-week program and just recently... started a new twelve week program. I have been able to work with three different trainers at Body By Choice. My trainers are Nate, Taylor and Andy I train with them three times a week. I have loved training with them and have felt stronger, healthier and better about myself since I’ve started. Each of them push and support me while I am training. They also have a nutritionist that is available to improve your nutrition. I highly recommend Body By Choice if you are looking to get in shape and improve your overall health. They are the experts 🙂read more

BBC is the most amazing gym I've ever been to. Not only is the equipment fantastic, clean and in really good shape. But... they also pair you with a trainer. Since I've been going there, I've had the pleasure of working with Annamarie. She will push you and support you and encourage you. And if you show up, you will succeed. In the time I've been going here, I've also gotten to know the other trainers along the way. Any trainer there, will be with you literally every step of the way. All of the plans are customized for you and your goals. They show you how to do things safely and very effectively. This is not a gym where you walk in the door and hop on a treadmill for 30 minutes because you don't know what else to do. You show up, you have a full workout plan waiting for you, you get a consistenly great workout.read more

I play professional hockey in Europe and I chose Body by Choice because of the elite level training programs they offer... to athletes. I worked primarily with Nick and his colleague Kolby who are both very knowledgeable. Nick set up a personal program for me including diet, supplementation and a strength and conditioning routine that helped me reach my goals. In only 10 weeks I dropped 4% total body fat and put on 13 pounds of lean muscle. If you are serious about your sport and live in the Grand Rapids area you need to give them a call. I highly recommend Body by Choice.read more

Weekly training sessions at BBCT over the last year have been a crucial part to my strength development and lean muscle... gain! Taylor's motivation and careful program planning has kept me focused and allowed me to realize my body's full capabilities as she pushes me for one more rep - something I would've given up on if I were by myself. Up until a year ago, I have always just trained individually and certainly continue to do so, but have found that even a weekly session has been incredibly beneficial with regards to reaching my fitness goals.read more

I have been working with Taylor for about 4 months now and I’ve never felt more motivated and excited about working... out -and these workouts can be intense! - as I do when coming here. I’ve seen and felt so much improvement, physically and mentally by pushing myself and having that support system to keep me going even when it gets tough. And it’s not just Taylor but all the other trainers and clients are supportive and friendly too. It’s also super awesome to hear my friends and family comment about how they have noticed how much better I’ve been looking and feeling lately since I’ve started training here! Highly recommend!!read more

I chose BBC based off of google reviews back in the spring. Their website was highly intriguing as well as their... reviews, and for good reason. All of their trainers are extremely friendly, helpful and supportive. Their combination of professionalism, knowledge and kindness sets them apart from other gyms. Not only do they help you out with training but they also have a nutritionist who helps you with choosing better and healthier meals. If you have any questions about shakes or supplements they are more than happy to help you, however they never once pressured me into buying them. Just going to the sessions twice a week with a trainer and eating healthier, they helped me lose 20 pounds in 12 weeks! All while gaining muscle and feeling stronger every week. It is on the pricier side, but they have different plans that you can ask about and surely afford. Ultimately, you’re not only investing your money into the company, but into yourself and they will guide you every step of the way to help you meet your goals.read more

I... have built so much strength in my body that I had lost for a long time, more than I had hoped for as I had worked with other trainers before without these results. And my positive results are evident in my medical assessment - my Doctor is very pleased with my numbers! Annamaire is a pleasure and joy to work with and has made a real difference in my life.read more

As a “senior citizen” I was troubled with various signs of aging including lethargy, weight gain, dangerous falls... and lower back pain when walking or doing chores. Nathan at Body by Choice has reversed all these symptoms and has given me a new lease on life. I was never comfortable in a gym environment and had no idea what I should do. Nathan and the “family” at Body by Choice erased my self-consciousness and made the experience something to look forward to. As a bonus, terrific weight and nutrition coaching is available from Tiffny, as well as on-line coaching. The change in my health is worth every penny. “When you have your health, you have everything.”read more

I can't say enough about Nathan and Body By Choice staff. They embrace and welcome you along with helping you achieve... physical goals you never knew you could. The positive environment and having the one to one with a skilled trainer makes all the difference. Nathan and the other trainers are so very knowledgeable in their field of expertise which has allowed me to enjoy training. The benefits are priceless with my increased energy level and ability to focus more in my day to day life. They embrace the full spectrum of optimal health from eating behaviors to stress relievers and what it takes to become the best you could possibly be and feel. Thank you all Body by Choice trainers, especially Nathan who keeps me on track.read more

Tiffny has been super helpful in helping me with my nutrition plan and keeping me motivated by going over my body measurements. Can't say enough good things, keep up the good work!!read more

12 weeks ago, I joined BBC to gain strength and lose fat. I had major surgery in July of last year that left me very... week. I met with Nick and put a plan together for nutrition and exercise with measurable goals. I’ve worked very hard under the watchful eye of Ann Marie, and met all my goals. I not only don’t want to lose what I gained, I want to take it to the next level. All of the staff at BBC are so supportive, it really is something I look forward to. I never dreamed that at 62, surviving lung cancer, I’d be in the best shape of my life. So now I reach higher. Great facility, people and program.read more
