"...all of this in just 4 weeks! Simply amazing!"
I feel physically stronger than I was 4 weeks ago, I’m more energized and focused and don’t feel constantly tired anymore. I’m sleeping much better plus I’m now much more conscious of what I put into my body and try to avoid the soda’s and fast food whenever possible. I haven’t had either in over a month and I’m beginning to see (and feel) the physical changes already!
… all of this in just 4 weeks! Simply amazing!
I have to admit Phase 1 was very challenging for me, but having you in my ear prompting, guiding and offering support was invaluable and helped me to push through when all I really wanted to do was call it a day and grab a Big Mac! Let’s just say that even though you weren’t there physically with me, I felt like you were right beside me encouraging me the whole time.
Best of all, I feel like I’m on track to achieving all 3 of my fitness goals plus … I’m actually beginning to live a healthier lifestyle … which I guess is the ultimate goal!
"I feel great! I can already feel and see a difference both physically and mentally."
"About a month ago, I finally joined a gym here in Boston and started using your Fitter U program. (I proudly declined the complementary training session offered as part of the gym membership and told the sales rep that I already had a personal trainer on my iPod). After Day 1, I knew I would be hooked. The workouts are fun, energizing, and fit easily into my busy schedule - there's no need to spend all day at the gym!
What I love about the program is that I no longer have to think about my workout - no more considering, "what should I work on next?". Fitter U is productive and efficient, and having you in my ear, encouraging and pushing me, truly is the next best thing to working with you in person. I find I've been pushing myself harder during the Phase 1 workouts than I normally would have if I was on my own.
Most importantly, I feel great! I can already feel and see a difference both physically and mentally. The interval training has helped boost my stamina and endurance, which I really notice on the cardio days. And the positive imagery and coaching you provide has filtered into my daily life. I find I'm setting goals and rewards for myself beyond the workouts, and when the going gets tough (both during interval training and in my life), I try to smile and think of how good I'll feel when I get through to the end."
"It was so thrilling to feel my body capable and wanting even more challenge."
"Hi Yuri, I just wanted to let you know that yesterday I finished Phase One of the Fitter U™ program and today I ran my first ever 5km!! It was amazing! I don't know if it was the coincidence of finishing phase one just before the run today, or what, but I really felt things have changed for me over this last month.
It was so thrilling to feel my body capable and wanting even more challenge. I think I had my first real runner's high too. (After the run, there were many stands of free goodies to eat, and I kept hearing your voice in my head saying to go for a quickly absorbable sugar! I chose juice over the crispy creme donuts.) Actually, I hear your voice quite often. Your positive reinforcement, encouragement and insightful comments stay with me long after the workouts. I really do find you an inspiration! Thank you for your hard work putting this program together. And thank you mostly for your passion about health and living life to the fullest.
I am more excited than ever to continue working with the Fitter U™ Phase Two and I am going to incorporate your running guides (Treadmill Trainer™) into my cardio days."
"The workouts are ever-changing, reducing any chance of boredom..."
"From my very first session with Yuri's Fitter U™, I knew this experience was going to be different. Our workout was one of the most energizing and dynamic I’ve experienced! Not to mention, FUN! What really makes Yuri a stand out for me is he not only addresses the exercise component, he also conditions you mentally ensuring you understand how important a healthy and positive mindset is to achieving your goals. Yuri and his Fitter U™ program taught me to set goals, commit to them and set my mind to not settle for anything less than my personal best.
Since working with Yuri's Fitter U™ MP3 fiitness program my level of fitness has steadily climbed. The workouts are ever-changing, reducing any chance of boredom and because of that, I continue to take the right steps toward my goals. My core strength has increased exponentially and the toning and muscle definition I was searching for is finally appearing."

"After using Fitter U™ I have more energy and enjoy working out again..."
“Hi my name is Barb and I have been using the Fitter U™ program for the last little while. If you are like me and are looking for a change from doing the same old work out day after day or just need an extra “push” to get motivated to work out and actually see results then the Fitter U™ program is what you are looking for.
I chose this program to help me maintain the fitness level I have achieved and to feel energized. After using Fitter U™ I have more energy and enjoy working out again- it no longer feels like a chore going to the gym.
With Yuri you will set up goals to achieve and a reward system that reinforces you once you obtain your goal. I was a little skeptical about this but gave it a shot and wow once I achieved my first goal and got my reward I felt great and was ready and motivated to go for the next one. The goals are realistic and achievable as you set them.”
"It's like having Yuri on my shoulder, keeping me motivated, pushing me harder and supporting me throughout..."
"As a District Vice President in banking, my job requires an abundance of driving, sitting in meetings and long office hours. Scheduling all the necessary meetings, branch visits, customer interactions and community events leaves little flexibility in my calendar for the other important things in my life, including working out and leisure physical activities. Over time, I have established a discipline of 'hitting the gym' but after many years months of doing so, I found that I was not making the progress that I desired.
Hiring a personal trainer made a difference yet I found that I was still coming up short on my health and fitness goals.
Recently, I met Yuri Elkaim and embarked on a more rigorous workout plan. I was introduced to the Fitter U™ program and now find myself making significant progress. In addition to our once a week session, I use the Fitter U™ MP3 program to fill in the gaps and to create a sense of urgency throughout my workouts.
It's like having Yuri on my shoulder, keeping me motivated, pushing me harder and supporting me throughout the audio routines. He fills each complete 50 minute workout with direction, information and guidance - and - the accompanying photos are very useful to reference the 'how-to's"of each exercise.
I highly recommend The Fitter U program to anyone serious about achieving their goals and building a healthier lifestyle."
"I was never able to do a “man's” push-up and now I’m doing sets of them!!!!... I feel stronger, I have gone down one dress size and I am feeling much better..."
“Although I would describe myself as active prior to meeting with Yuri and using Fitter U™, I was finding that I was not getting the results that I wanted. Part of my problem, is that I just didn't know what I needed to do to build more strength and muscle. I see fitness as a journey. When I began using Fitter U™, I had already lost 65 pounds, but the last 30 pounds were not budging. I have now been working out for about six months with the Fitter U™ program, which is naturally tailored to my needs, zoned at my problem areas and has helped me build strength.
I was never able to do a “man's” push-up and now I’m doing sets of them!!!! I haven't yet reached my goal weight, but I feel stronger, I have gone down one dress size and I am feeling much better. I would strongly recommend the Fitter U™ program to anyone interested in looking and feeling better.
An enthusiastic but still learning fitness convert....”
"The music is great and Yuri's motivational words are not only effective but inspirational..."
"I have been working out consistently for almost 2 years now and I'm always looking to change my routine every couple of months to avoid hitting those plateaus and to continously challenge my body. I started using the Fitter U™ program and love it!! It really is like having your own personal trainer by your side via MP3. The program progressively changes each week which I like because I feel my body is always being challenged. The music is great and Yuri's motivational words are not only effective but inspirational....it's not just a physical workout but a mental one as well and that's important to me! I look forward to the next program!"
"Hi Yuri, I wanted to say how amazed I am at the results I have been getting from your three month Fitter U™ workout program. I had read previous testimonials and thought they where a bit hyped, having spent two years dedicatedly going to the gym and working hard. I was quite fit to start with but have really struggled getting rid of extra bits of fat, so I was keen to give anything a try.
"I have been working with Yuri as my personal trainer for close to 5 years. In all those sessions, I’ve never had the same workout twice! Yuri and exercise are synonymous with creative, inventive, challenging and totally fun.
What I admire most about Yuri is his knowledge and understanding of exercise physiology and sport psychology. He utilizes this not only to motivate a maximum effort, but also to support and encourage the attempt. Through a combination of cardio, strength, and core training, Yuri’s sessions have helped me to develop a better sense of strength and balance in my body. Yuri’s sessions are totally energizing and leave me feeling fit and healthy.
Between both of our busy schedules, training sessions with Yuri are sometimes not as often as I’d like. This is why his revolutionary Fitter U and Treadmill Trainer MP3 guided workouts are so fabulous. The same knowledge and creativity that Yuri delivers in a personal session has been transmitted to an audio format that I can take with me wherever I go.
Each session and module is progressive and expertly guided by Yuri. The same attention to cardio, strength, and core training is captured in the Fitter U modules. The audio is not ‘canned or computerized’. It literally feels as if Yuri is personally there with me; encouraging and motivating as always.
If you don’t have the time and/or funds for a personal trainer, I highly recommend the Fitter U and Treadmill Trainer modules. They’ve really spiced up my workouts and have made going to the gym fun and beneficial to my health and well-being!"
"I have really noticed my endurance and pace improve over the last month with Treadmill Trainer. I have also noticed that I am able to run faster and farther.
“Since using the Treadmill Trainer™ I have been able to run a lot longer and a lot further as I could never get the motivation to get passed the half hour mark and it never occurred to me about interval training. I used to only run between 20 and 30 minutes depending on what I could be bothered to do and running at the same speed but now I do the Treadmill Trainer™ 3 times a week and I've just introduced another one of your cardio workouts as well.
Also I must say after the first few weeks I was getting off the treadmill so energized and extremely impressed with myself that I could withhold the distance. I felt that my fitness level had increased dramatically and my body was starting to change shape (although I was eating more because I was running more!!! something I need to curb). Nonetheless, my stamina and enthusiasm for running was increasing and still is.
When I was in my youth I could run for miles and now that I’m a little older I've lost the edge to get out there and do it but with your MP3 Treadmill Trainer™ I am building up my confidence and my fitness level that this summer I will be taking my running to the streets with confidence. I have had so much trouble trying to download music (from other sites) that I could run to, and run to the beat so that I didn't run at snails pace but with your encouraging voice and excellent beats in the background you have pushed me to go that extra mile.... to be honest I don't think I could do it without you on the treadmill as you give me the motivation to do it.
So I would just like to say a big thank you for bringing out these fabulous workouts! Keep them coming cause you can keep training me and pushing me every step of the way.”
I've been an aerobics instructor for many, many years, but recently decided I needed a change in my routine. I chose running because it can be done anywhere, anytime, and this appealed to me as a great way to break free from years of scheduled classes.
“I feel great and so many people have complimented me for "looking great"! What a wonderful feeling!!
"First of all, I would like to confess to you that I am not a runner, I never was. I have only dreamed of it!! Until now, and that is thanks to you! I always felt like a loser at the gym. I wanted to run on the treadmill as easily as all the "runners" but after about 5 minutes I had to stop and walk. (The Walk of Shame!!)
I have been using Treadmill Trainer™ Volume 1 for about 3 weeks and I run (yes run!!!!) 4X per week. I can't believe the improvement in just 2 weeks. I am so excited to see what I will be doing 4 weeks from now!! I don't really weigh myself regularly but my clothes are starting feel very loose, I even had to buy a new belt yesterday!!
I have tried to run in the past but I always injured myself or got so discouraged I gave up. With The Treadmill Trainer™ I feel great and I am so proud of myself for getting through the entire workout. I am anxious to get to the gym and see what I can accomplish today! The workout is so easy to follow and there is so much interesting information packed in there it never gets boring. The music is not distracting and it has a quick beat that keeps me flying! I feel great and so many people have complimented me for "looking great"! What a wonderful feeling!!
I can't skip a session with the Treadmill Trainer™. I am so excited to get to level two I push myself!! I have to make excuses to take a day off.
I am a shift worker and I work the craziest schedule you have ever seen!! (really you wouldn't believe it). High stress job, the works. I was taking prescription sleep aids, stomach medication and I was using a night guard to prevent me from grinding my teeth at night. I don't need to take the stomach meds or the sleep aids, they were gone with in a week of starting the Treadmill Trainer™. Last night was my first night without the night guard. So far, so good!!
I have signed up, together with several of my co-workers, to run the relay in the Toronto Marathon this fall. Do you believe that?? I am (finally) a runner!!
“...thanks Yuri for putting the fun back into running and working out. I am now toned and glowing with pride at my achievements…”
Firstly I’d like to say I’m no athlete and I’m still only on the first volume of the Treadmill Trainer but I’d really like to give you an account of how it’s been for me.
My job involves a lot of travelling and my exercise regime has reduced me to climbing up the stairs to bed in the evening! I did have a gym membership but I felt so out of place with such fit and athletic people surrounding me making feel so worthless, that I just couldn’t drag myself there any longer. I am not overweight and at 45kg and 5’2” I am actually under weight so I need to tone up and put some muscle back on.
I knew running, particularly interval training, was the best thing for me to get fit, so I decided to give the Treadmill Trainer™ a try when it came up on the Google search. It downloaded as easy as pie and I was out that evening as soon as I got home.
I was a little nervous at first not liking, in fact loathing running, but Yuri’s voice was so reassuring and the instructions were clear and concise that I actually started to enjoy the run round my local lake in the afternoon sun.
The sense of achievement it gave me completing the volume was so memorable. I had the biggest smile on my face all the way home! There were tough bits, as in any workout, but Yuri seemed to know when I would be getting tired and doubting myself. It was like he was really there spurring me on right to the last second of the final jog.
I now go twice, if not three times a week and that sense of achievement is all I need to carry me on to the next volume and I can’t wait!
So, thanks Yuri for putting the fun back into running and working out. I am now toned and glowing with pride at my achievements, however small they are.
In the past I have 'run' on and off, but actually found it quite boring. Having already completed your 3-month Fitter U™ program and losing 7% body fat taking me back down to 21%, I thought I'd give the Treadmill Trainer™ a go.
At only $12 or so, even if I only used it once it wasn't much of a loss. I am now using it twice a week and am really enjoying the variation it offers. I never thought that I'd be able to run/jog for 40 minutes without collapsing in a heap on the floor, but the way you break it down into sections makes it easy and the time fly.
In a week or so when I feel very confident with what I'm doing I shall certainly get Volume 3!
I love the Treadmill Trainer™. At 60 years old I decided to challenge myself and run for the first time in my life.
I am relatively fit and thought that I could just start running and go for a few miles. However, it was very difficult for me and I was ready to give up because it was not fun at all.
But one day when searching the web from Schererville, Indiana, I found the Treadmill Trainer™. I have now gone 3 weeks on Volume 1 and I am doing very well and today I will start Volume 2. In just a few weeks I should be ready to compete in my first 5K run!
Thanks for keeping me from giving up on running for I expect to be doing it now for several more years.”

“Now, I am able to run without getting winded and fatigued…The Treadmill Trainers™ are very structured and provide an intense workout in a short length of time!”
Before using the programs, I would experience pain during and after running. I would only be able to run for short times, usually either too fast or too slow. It wasn't until the Treadmill Trainer™ series that I realized my form and my pace were the problems.
Now, I am able to run without getting winded and fatigued. The pain has disappeared. The Treadmill Trainers™ are very structured and provide an intense workout in a short length of time. It is truly like having a personal trainer and a running coach right there by my side encouraging and motivating me with every step.
When I feel like I can't make it another step, your voice comes in right on time letting me know that I can make it. My confidence in myself and my ability to run, injury-free, has improved 100% because of your teaching in the Treadmill Trainers™. I purchased all 3 volumes and I use them everyday.
The wealth of knowledge and the teaching offered in the programs is priceless. Yuri, I cannot thank you enough and words cannot express just how wonderful the Treadmill Trainers™ are.
My life and my health have been forever changed by the Treadmill Trainer™ series. I am telling everybody I know about you. Thank you.”
