“I want to thank Kennett Washington for all of his help in helping me prepare for the NGA Olympus show. With his knowledge and expertise my diet was effective and training was king. Oct 25th 2008 I turned pro after winning the Master division at the NGA Drug-Free Olympus Bodybuilding Show held in Buffalo NY. I thank God for his help and support.”

I gave Kennett a call, set up a consult and came with a very long list of questions. As an engineer I want to be told what to do, when to do it and why I’m doing it. This is exactly what I got, and then some. I wasn’t looking for someone to yell at me for 30 minutes and scare me into working hard. Working with Kennett was always comfortable and I was consistently pushed to my physical boundary without ever feeling unsafe. I was working with Kennett three days a week and started to see major differences when I looked in the mirror. I was amazed at what these changes did for my confidence and how much better I felt just going through the day. Driving home and feeling great after a hard workout with Kennett became something I looked forward to and even though I went after a long day at work I never once made an excuse not to go. It was fun and even after nearly a year I still enjoy “my time” in the gym. I’m on my own now but can walk into any gym and know exactly what I should be doing, how to safely and effectively do it, and without worrying about what the people around me are doing.
I would highly recommend Healing Strength Personal Training to anyone looking to improve themselves but may feel overwhelmed and not know where to start. While Kennett will not do the work for you, and it won’t always be easy, you will get what you put into it. For me, I put all that I had into it and what I’ve gotten back I can’t quantify, but will stay with me forever. Thanks Kennett for everything!
Standing Vibrant and Active Fitness Bootcamper with
Stand Out weight loss of 108 pounds thus far!
When I began my weight loss journey with Healing Strength Personal Training I was 220 lbs. and a size 22. I had difficulty breathing, my energy level was zero and my body ached from carrying all the excess weight around. With the inspiration, motivation and guidance I received from Healing Strength, my weight dropped 52 lbs. and I was a size 14. Throughout this process I learned not only how to eat nutritionally and train properly but also the importance of drinking plenty of water and the significance of not just losing weight but losing actual body fat. Healing Strength Personal Training not only changed my body image but changed my life. Today I don’t live to eat but I eat to live and I feel great. I greatly appreciate all that Healing Strength has done for me because now I will be able to live and enjoy a longer life.

“Kennett taught me that through proper diet, exercise, and supplementation I could reach and surpass my fitness goals and competitive bodybuilding aspirations. After working with Kennett for a year, my dream of competing in a bodybuilding show was realized. I am very thankful to Kennett and Healing Strength Personal Training for helping me to achieve my goals.”

“I joined Healing Strength Personal Training boot camp the week before Thanksgiving 2011. This is my first time in any type of boot camp or organized fitness training. I didn’t take any measurement at the beginning. I decided to take my measurements for the first time in February 2012 to track them. In two months I lost a total of 15 inches and 8 pounds. The first weekend in March I wore a pair of pants that I had not worn in 2 years. I love and enjoy my boot camp. Kennett Washington is the absolute BEST!!! He encourages you to work at your own pace however he will push you to do more. Thank you Kennett for all you do to help me to become a more healthier woman.”

In the Spring of 2012, Nick was in 7th grade and made his middle school baseball team. When school ball was over, he transitioned to another local traveling baseball team. It was the Charlotte Stealth team that practiced and trained at a facility on Nations Ford Road.
It was there that Nick met Kennett Washington from Healing Strength. In August 2012 Nick began working out with Healing Strength 3 days a week. Not only did the trainers from Healing Strength start to teach Nick about strengthening his body, he also learned about nutrition.
Nick dropped his training back to 1 or 2 times a week once school started. However, he began to work out at home using the techniques he learned from Healing Strength. His diet also improved dramatically.
He continued with baseball and made the middle school team again in Spring of 2013. But this year he looked a lot different. He had lost 30 pounds. He was quicker and now ran a 6 minute mile. He also was down to less than 1% body fat. Many of his teammates hardly recognized him. All his hard work paid off as he developed into a much better ball player. He was even named MVP of the team this year.
The trainers at Healing Strength helped our son gain confidence and improve his athletic abilities. They also taught him how to better understand his body’s physical and nutritional needs.
We are so proud of Nick and his discipline to achieve his goals. We are so grateful to Healing Strength for all of the time and effort they put into working with our son.
The attached photos are Nick’s school portraits taken in October 2011 and one year later in October 2012, just two months after he began to work with Healing Strength. What a difference they have made in his life.

I had a wedding in Jamaica and I knew I had 3 months to get bikini ready and to fit into my dress perfectly! Kennett and his team at Healing Strength Personal Training was key to my success. The service at HSPT was excellent the trainers were knowledgeable on fitness, nutrition and other ways to help me reach my goals. Their tailored workouts helped me reach my goals and mixing it up every workout made it fun but also pushed and motivated me so I never got bored! I truly enjoyed my experience working with Kennett and his staff of friendly trainers who actually care.

Kennett’s boot camp is awesome!!!! I have been to several trainers around Charlotte and this by far is the best! Kennett is so knowledgeable about health and fitness. He have showed and told me many things that can improve my overall health that I never knew. Kennett has a different workout plan each time that challenges you at your own level. His encouragement throughout the workout keeps you motivated and anticipating what’s next. Not only have I lost pounds and inches, I have become stronger and faster. I can do more push ups than I ever imagined. I even look forward to the one exercise I have always hated-running. I can run for longer periods of time and at a faster rate. If you are looking for a trainer that gets results and help to transform your life Kennett Washington is that trainer!

Bootcamp is one of the most rewarding and challenging experiences I have done! Bootcamp makes you not only physically stronger, but mentally stronger as well. The other ladies that I workout with are not only fun, but supportive and inspirational. For the month of February (just for February), I lost 1 & 1/4 inches off of EACH THIGH. If you are on the fence about joining, try the camp just for one day. You will so enjoy the experience that you will wonder what took you so long to join! Your body will thank you!

“Thank you Kennett for helping me achieve better health. I feel very blessed that I found you on the internet and gave you that first phone call. I know I will look so much healthier and leaner when I attend/perform at the BMAs!”
God Bless Always,
“It was a pleasure to work with Kennett for the time that I did. I felt that he was not only my trainer, but became a friend as well. He was always willing to work around my schedule, and I was able to contact him anytime I had a question. He knew how to train me according to my abilities and always pushed me to do the best I could. He was a great motivator, and thanks to him I ran my first 5K. I learned a lot about myself and really enjoyed working with him.”
“Kennett is the best! His awesome style of training has given me the edge over many of my opponents. I have improved my time in the forty-yard dash and quickness in lateral movements on the field. I have also increased my total over-all body strength by 25%!”

“Kennett is by far the best personal trainer that I have ever known. In fact, to call him a personal trainer is an understatement. His knowledge of the human frame and biomechanics and how to optimize the function of it surpasses most physical therapists. I have experienced his unique style of training and was impressed by his multifaceted approach to integrated core training. He has worked with me personally to help me achieve champion status in several elite competitions. As a chiropractic doctor I entrust my patients to his care. I refer to Kennett my patients that need intense neural pathway re-education and muscle coordination rehab. I highly recommend him.”

“Dropping my body fat and increasing my lean muscle mass was awesome… I had felt out of balance for quite a while. But having more energy at the end of the day is by far the best part, and for that, we all (Molly, Collin, and I) thank you. Keep up the good work and keep changing lives.”
