WHAT CLIENT'S SAY
My experience in working with Doug Patton of Simply Fit has been really outstanding. Doug has been working with me for almost 8 years now and the benefits to my health and stamina have been wonderful. There have been years when I was able to get to the gym 5 days a week, and other years when I have hardly been able to keep any consistent time. Sometimes this has been because of an injury or temporary illness, and sometimes just procrastination. Through it all, Doug has been patient and persistent in keeping me on track and has adjusted my regimen over time according to what I can handle, as well as pushing me to exceed my capacities. I am now 68 years old and the result of this time working with Doug is that I feel as good (and weigh the same) as I did at age 50. I would enthusiastically encourage anyone I know to consider working with Doug to improve their health, strength and stamina. He is a consummate professional and knows how to implement a plan appropriate for one’s ability. I would never consider working out without a trainer, and plan on working with Doug for many years to come.
Just want to thank Doug Patton for years of great training. I met Doug when Anytime Fitness first opened on 4th street and definitely not in my best shape. In a short time, he evaluated my needs and strengths and I was quickly on my way to being in my best shape. Through the years he has met all my challenges including my diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis and has adjusted my workouts to fit my life. It’s been a few years now, but Doug keeps my workouts interesting and fresh.
Over the years we have developed a friendship and I am honored to call Doug a good friend. He is dedicated, loyal to his workouts, his clients and has an outstanding work ethic. So, thank you Doug, I feel great and I owe that to you.
I have been working out with Doug for 8 months now, and I can honestly say that I see a huge difference in the way I look and more importantly, feel. I’m in my mid-thirties, and my body is not springing back into shape like it used to, so I decided to get off my derriere and do something about it, and I’m super glad that I did. Doug is an amazing trainer, and I can’t say enough fantastic things about him. He can motivate me when I’m feeling lazy and I can always count on him to push me further than I ever thought I could go before, while making sure that I am exercising safely, and I know my limits. When I’m working out with Doug, I’m having fun because he is super creative with his workouts; In 8 months I don’t think I’ve had the same workout twice! Working out with Doug has increased my energy, metabolism, and definitely my confidence.

Doug first walked into the doors of North Shore Gym in Lakewood, Ohio at the age of 18 with a passion in his heart to be a bodybuilder. Even at that age, he already had the physique of a lifter. Within days, it was known that K.I.S.S. was his favorite workout music, along with Guns & Roses, and of course, Hells Bells by AC/DC. Gary & I took an instant liking to Doug, and he became one of our Staff at North Shore. He worked his way up from cleaning the equipment to becoming a trainer. This was what used to be called a “Hard Core Gym”, and the atmosphere was always charged. Doug has a way with people, he could relate to anyone, and their goals. He became a leader, with many fellow members wanting to be his work out partner. Always trustworthy, always dedicated, always considerate, always psyched for the burn, Doug was/is a true hardcore lifter. We are so very proud of him, and so grateful that we’re still in touch all these years later. This world needs more Doug Pattons, he is making the world a better place, one rep at a time!
I’ve been training with Doug for a couple of decades now! He has a lot of experience and can create a work out plan for your personal needs. And he covers the three major areas a person needs to balance for a healthy life style…fitness, diet and strong social ties. On the fitness front, I really needed help building strength. Doug worked with me to understand the different weights and machines and how to use them to improve strength and balance. He pushes me, but knows I have limits and takes them into account without making me feel limited! With diet, he is knowledgeable about changes you to need to make to achieve your goals. This includes everything from eating clean to creating protein shakes that taste good and supplement meals. And training sessions can be like visits with a friend. Doug does an excellent job getting to know his clients personally, and what is important to them. Over the years there are times we’ve shared the joys of life, the loss of loved ones and everything in between. He boosts your confidence and always makes you feel stronger and lighter when you leave than when your arrived! I appreciate all the time and energy Doug has put into our training sessions. Here’s to the next decade of training together.
