Success Stories

Emily before and after (2).jpg

“Before meeting Stavros I had lost weight many times in the past only to gain it back again and then some. But since following Stavros’s program, this is the first time in my life that I have been able to finally lose the weight and keep it off for good!

It has been 3 years since I have reached my goal weight and I have been able to maintain it easily and effortlessly. This is by far the best weight loss program I have ever tried! Thank you Stavros!”

-Emily Volpintesta (Lost 38lbs)

“I LOVE working out with Stavros!!! I’ve lost almost 20 pounds already working out with Stavros and so far the only thing I’ve had to sacrifice have been the pounds, which I’m glad to get rid of. Stavros’ method is new, unique and really easy to follow. I’ve always been hesitant to diet and monitor what I eat because I can’t follow all the calories, levels of various ingredients and other such things diets require, with Stavros none of this is required, all you have to do is follow his rules and you’re on your way to feeling and looking better. As great as I feel weighing less, I feel even better working out two days a week with Stavros. My mental and emotional health has never felt better, I feel as if I can do anything! and even look forward to working out with Stavros, because every session he makes your want to come back and believe me, you’ll want to. That’s another great thing, Stavros has actually made me want to workout on my own, not because he asks me to but because I WANT TO, which has only helped my results.
Overall I can’t say enough good things about Stavros and his method. Working with him has made me feel and look great, which is everything you’ll gain if you join his team.”

“Cracking my weight loss code with Stavros, started with my search for a personal trainer, but all of my roads led to a dead end. These big burly guys wanted to talk to me about , losing weight, by lifting hundreds of pounds, and drinking nasty tasting protein shakes. That is a life that just isn’t for me. I met with Stavros for my free consultation , and scheduled weekly sessions immediately. Working active duty in the United States Marine Corps I needed to lose weight fast; as my career was dependent on it. I gave Stavros a sixty day time frame to lose 20 lbs. He met that goal and superseded it by helping me to lose 30 lbs; and decreased my run time, and increased my balance, flexibility overall and my athleticism on the obstacle course. I continue to recommend Stavros to all my friends, and family.”

“So simple, and yet extremely effective. I still can’t believe how simple it was to change my eating habits and lose weight with The Stavros Method. I lost over 65lbs and I have no problem keeping it off. This is a must try program for anyone who wants to lose weight for good.”​

-Neil J Hutchins (lost 65lbs)

“The idea of walking into a gym with endless weight machines and treadmills was completely overwhelming. What made Stavros’ program appealing was the way in which he simplified things down to 2 elements. A half hour of weight training, a half hour of cardio and you’re done. For me, this was so much easier to wrap my brain around. Now after a year of training, I’m down 50 lbs and have made Stavros’ program a consistent part of my life.”

Darren Morgenthaler, Brewster NY (Lost 50lbs)

“I love The Stavros Method! I was a little discouraged in the beginning because I was losing weight very slowly but then something just clicked and now I am down 20 pounds. The eating rules are easy to follow and you don’t have to sacrifice the foods you love. Stavros always says “this is not a diet” and he is right! It is so easy that I am able to get my whole family to follow the rules and they look great as well!”

“I began training with Stavros in August 2013. My goal when starting this program were to increase my activity, fitness levels and create a healthier lifestyle. Through the lifting, cardio training and following Stavros’ healthy eating habits, I have exceeded all my goals.

I have never felt this healthy, fit and energized and lost 39 pounds in the process. Stavros positive attitude and motivation make every training session enjoyable. This program has inspired me to work out on my own and utilize the healthy eating habits in my daily life.”

Marcy Rudolf, (Lost 38lbs)

“I like the fact that I don’t have to spend hours lifting weights every day to get in good shape. I just need two 30-minute session each week. The strength training exercise program is tailored for my strengths and weaknesses. 
The nutritional program is not one of those hard-to-stick-to “no carbs” or “no fat” diets. It’s just based on common-sense, practical advice that is easy to follow and remember. And it even allows for occasional “treats” so I don’t feel like I’m depriving myself all the time.
I have gone through many years of “crash” diets and weight gains and losses. I think I have finally found a program that I can realistically follow for the rest of my life.
Overall, I lost over 40 pounds in 7 months, reduced my body fat by 17%, and dropped 6 jean sizes. I have maintained my weight goal for 3 months and counting!”

-Michelle Fusco, Newtown, CT (Lost 40lbs)

“Dear Stavros
I cannot emphasize enough about how professional you have been with my program. I came to you in July ’13, requesting a program to tone my body and tighten my waistline. You put me on a routine which accomplished everything and more of what I requested. Your program was not only constructive but you made it enjoyable as well. I will be happy to recommend your services for anyone and I will be returning periodically. Thank you again for your interest on my behalf. You have made a customer as well as a friend.
Sincerely, Bud Ullmann”

"All I can say is that Stavros's approach has changed my life. I have lost over 100 pounds. I am healthier and have much more energy. It even goes beyond weight loss. It is a philosophy that you can use to attain your other life's goals as well. Thanks, Stavros!"

Joe B, New Milford, CT,(Lost 105lbs)

I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed working with you as my trainer. Not only are you a trainer, you are a motivator, a mentor and a friend. Before I came to you I was determined to lose the weight and be healthier but I needed that extra push. I will continue to recommend you to anyone who wants to live a healthier lifestyle and lose weight. Thank you again for all you have done.”

I’ve been meaning to drop you a note for sometime but haven’t gotten around to it. Your reminder and nice article in today’s paper reminded me to thank you.
Although it’s almost a year since I’ve trained with you I have not stopped. I have continued to do resistance training at least 3 days a week. And over the course of the summer I traded the treadmill for read running.
I now look forward to my 3 days a week 3-5 mile runs at lunchtime. I have also run in 3 5K events and have been pleasantly surprised by my results. (Average time of 8:12 per mile)
So I want you to enjoy your holiday and know that the foundation you gave me last fall in training continues to serve me well. When I started with Live Your Way Thin, I weighted 219 lbs I now hold steady at 177 lbs and feel better than I have in years.
Again thanks for the life changing advice and I wish you continued success.”

“Stavros always has your best health interest in mind when he works with you, he is motivating, knowledgeable, and his system works!! I have tried several diets in the past including Weight Watches and I feel Stavros’s method is nothing short of revolutionary. It is an ingenious, sensible way to lose weight”
