Character. Dedication. Confidence.

Prob’ly not the first words you think about for a personal trainer…

But I saw those qualities in Brooks before he started training me.

I’ll never forget when I saw him go straight from deadlifts to a crazy jump-rope routine.

I asked if he offered personal training. 

And 8 months later, he’s still got me under his wing… 

Helping me push my body AND my mind to new heights.

The reality is, most trainers are frauds - they don’t "practice what they preach."

Their bodies and mindsets are apparent contradictions to their training professions.

Not Brooks.

He looks NFL-ready because he STILL trains like an athlete. 

AND he regularly makes the time to rack up certifications. 

This means, that all his knowledge benefits me…

Because now I can do 13 minutes of non-stop core work anytime I want. I see at least 10% increases in my lifts regularly.

And most importantly, I feel unstoppable in the gym.

I’m still amazed at how far I’ve come in such a short amount of time.

All thanks to Brook’s expertise and those 3 little words I mentioned in the beginning.

Excel Fitness is blessed to have him and so am I.

If you’re ready for a challenge to go to the next level, he’s your guy.

The best part of Excel Body Fitness is the people! The workouts are of course, top-notch too! Carolee is awesome and is passionate about health and fitness. Great location for anyone in Cary area! Definitely recommend this gym, 2 thumbs up!

Great, hour-long boot camps with instructors that will challenge, encourage, and sometimes frustrate you lol.
The gym is primarily for structured workouts in a class setting. There are treadmills, nautilus, and free weights which are sometimes incorporated into the classes but can also be used with memberships.
Excel offers kickboxing, yoga, spin classes, and various types of boot camps.
Fun, challenging workouts with Carolee and is co-owner she was very knowledgeable and her team.

Best gym ever! It is the only workout I've ever stuck with. They are able to accommodate exercises for individual issues like a personal trainer would do. The variation in classes is also excellent you never get bored!
