Testimonials about Tim:

About 7 years ago, I began experiencing lower back problems that affected many of the sports I enjoyed, especially golf and running. I considered myself to be in average physical condition, but I could not get relief from the constant lower back pain. I began training with Tim Mikulance, who immediately helped me learn about the importance of core strength. Through a combination of individual and group TRX, interval circuits and strength training, he has helped eliminate all of my lower back issues, and I now have the best core strength and cardio endurance that I’ve had in over 10 years.

I began training with Tim Mikulance over 7 years ago when I was looking to add strength training to my workouts. Tim continually pushes me to do things that I never dreamt I would do (like motivating me to train for a half-marathon when I have never been a runner)! Due to Tim’s knowledge regarding strength training, endurance training, and nutrition I am in the best shape of my life!

Tim Mikulance is a truly excellent trainer.

Because of his efforts, I am stronger and weigh less. Tim has been my personal trainer for just 3 months and the results I have achieved to date are largely due to his combination of diverse training methods, individualized exercise programs and challenging yet achievable goal setting.

His professionalism and extensive knowledge (including TRX & a great recommendation for the perfect Protein Recovery Powder) provides the perfect scenario for success and sets foundations for my new healthier lifestyle!

Tim embodies change. Through consistent and positive feedback and encouragement, he retrained my body.

He discovered the athlete in me that I never knew.

Thank you Tim, you are the best!

Having group trained with Tim for over 6+ years, we find ourselves living very fit and total healthy lives. Tim motivates and educates us while allowing a little fun along the way. Best testimonial is from our doctors who keep on telling us that at the ages of 54, we are in the small minority of people living lives with no medications.

I started working out with Tim 11 years ago. My initial goal was to lose the final 50 lbs. in my weight loss journey. I expected to become physically stronger and healthier. I wanted to learn how to best use the resources in the gym and I wanted the extra motivation that comes with committing to working with a personal trainer. I joined a gym and was assigned a trainer… not Tim. While I worked out with my assigned trainer or on my own, I kept an eye on Tim’s approach to training. The types of things he was doing with his clients were the types of things I wanted to be doing. They were doing a wide variety of activities, weight training and cardio mixed, and they were SWEATING!! Tim was kicking their butts and making them work hard. That’s what I wanted and needed. I talked to Tim, switched trainers and it’s now 11 yrs. later.

I achieved my initial goal. I lost the weight and yes, I became physically stronger and healthier. But I got so much more than I ever imagined I would when I searched for a trainer. Tim’s approach to fitness and training focuses on the whole package. Fitness, nutrition, and emotional wellbeing. I would have been able to reach my initial goal by improving in just 1 or 2 of those; however, by following Tim’s approach and focusing on all areas, I am becoming the person I want to be. I can set and achieve bigger and better goals in all areas of my life. Work, personal life and my physical fitness. Tim invests so much of his time and effort into my success, and the success of all of his clients. I really do feel as though Tim is on this journey with me. My success is his success. He’s my voice of reason, biggest cheerleader, and was the first person to get me to believe that I CAN. He pushes me to my limits and realizes that those limits change on a daily basis. His workouts are organized and tailored to my own abilities yet flexible enough that he can change them on the fly if the need arises. I never know what I’m going to get when I show up for my session… heavy weights/low reps, interval training, boxing, stretching, basketball, spinning… Outside?? Inside?? Always a surprise. It keeps the workouts interesting and exciting and it allows me to continue to make forward progress. He focuses on the goals I have, yet finds creative ways to accomplish them. No boredom for me!!

As things in my life have changed, my goals and abilities have changed right along with them. Tim and I revisit my goals on a regular basis and he does his homework to tailor my workouts to meet those goals. When I reach a road block, it’s not uncommon to receive an email from Tim with an article he found on the internet that may just help me out. Yep, when I found my trainer 11 years ago, I never expected to find someone who cared about my overall wellbeing 24/7, not just for the 2-3 hours/week we meet to workout.

Tim brought me back to living an active life! After a car accident, and two rotator cuff surgeries, I had gained weight and had very limited mobility of both arms. Even after lengthy sessions of physical therapy, I couldn’t enjoy the water sports that I have loved my whole life.

After less than 6 months working with Tim, I had lost over 10 pounds (and have kept that and more off), as well as am back to enjoying kayaking, tennis and almost full extension of both arms. My surgeon said that I have recovered better than 99% of his patients, and I owe it all to Tim.

Not only has he been able to get me back to doing the things I love and fitting in 2 smaller size clothes, he also has made me want to maintain this with his positive words and actions. He listens, is truly concerned about more than your physical wellbeing but the mental state that may contribute to going back to old habits…

He recently helped me prepare for a big event… my son’s wedding. My arms never looked better in the strapless gown I wore.

I can’t imagine being without Tim as a trainer… and a friend.

There are few people in life that you consider critical and instrumental to your ability to achieve your goals and fulfill your potential. Tim Mikulance is one of those individuals in my life. As a petite and slight individual who struggled athletically as a youngster, I came to Tim lacking both physical and mental strength. While endurance was not an issue for me, I lacked speed and power, but more importantly I lacked the belief in myself one needs to push forward and see possibility.

I now have that because of Tim. With Tim’s help, I took more than an hour off my Ironman time. While that’s a great accomplishment, what was more meaningful was finally believing and understanding that I could do it. Thoughts of “I hope,” transformed to “I can” or “I will.” From Tim, I built muscular strength as well as mental strength.

Tim’s sessions, are often the highlight of my day or week. He strikes the right balance between knowing how to encourage beyond what you think you can do and recognizing when you’ve finally reached your limit. He balances expectation with care. You always leave an encounter with Tim feeling a sense of accomplishment, a small victory that gives you the confidence to move forward on your next task whether at work or play.

He has that charismatic ability to inspire you even with a simple “Go Pammy” shouted from the sidelines.

Tim’s value is not limited to those who pursue endurance goals. He will always play a role in my health and wellness efforts so that as I age I can continue to enjoy a lifestyle.

Tim is so knowledgeable when it comes to training, I call him “Professor”.

He’s great to work with, pushing you just enough to get great results, without over doing it. Always with a smile. He’s the best!

I worked with Tim as a trainee in his functional strength classes for endurance athletes, as well as TRX classes. He has a huge knowledge base and really gets after it. It made a big difference in my performance. In addition, Tim is very personable and someone I call with a question or just to say hey. If you aren’t training with him you should be!

I started training with Tim Mikulance 10 years ago when I was entering high school and had goals to be a successful high school athlete. Tim’s focus of functional movement and agility training in young athletes was the foundation of my high school success as he prioritized form and technique to prevent injury. As I got older, Tim used that foundation as the basis of my strength training focusing on developing the strength needed for a track athlete. Tim knows that champions are created in the off-season every hop, skip, jump and squat in the off-season resulted in me being a Wisconsin All State Track Athlete in the 200m, 400m and 4x400m.

Tim is one of the most dedicated personal trainers that I have encountered. Tim is constantly developing himself and enhancing his knowledge for the betterment of his clients. I hold him in the highest regard for his ability to breakdown a situation and problem solve from the ground up. He doesn’t focus on the result; he focuses on the cause. Beyond the knowledge of his craft, Tim is professionally driven to help his clients succeed in whatever it is they choose to participate in; and can instill a sense of motivation in the people he works with that they may not know exists. I could clearly hear his voice as I during the many track meets he attended during my high school career.

Personally, Tim’s knowledge and training is my foundation as a Graduate Assistant Athletic Trainer at Syracuse University. He is one of my biggest supporters and has continually provided support, listening to me contemplate college, work, or fitness in general, he has never stopped listening and acting as a key advisor in any small amount of success I can claim as an athlete or professional. Tim truly cares about the whole individual, not just their fitness goals and achievements but their familial, personal, and well-being goals and achievements.

I have been fortunate enough to train with Tim for an extended period of time and I recommend him, and his team at 360 Fitness, with the highest regard.

Testimonials about Matt:

I have been working with Matt for three months and have seen amazing results. I have never felt stronger or healthier. I used to see a chiropractor once a week for my back. Since I have been working with Matt, I have not seen the chiropractor since the end of last year. Matt is passionate about fitness and it shows through the energy and enthusiasm he brings to every session. He makes every workout challenging but fun. He always pushes me beyond what I think are my limits. If you are serious about changing your life for the better, I could think of no better trainer than Matt.

Thanks Matt, you are the best!

I started working with Matt as part of a weight loss program, but we quickly established that my fitness goals went well beyond weight loss to lifelong strength, flexibility, balance and control as I get older. Matt created a rigorous and challenging program for me, and soon had me accomplishing things I wouldn’t have believed possible. His focus on doing things the right way gave me the confidence to succeed. Thanks Matt!

Testimonials about Briana:

Fitness has always been a priority in my life. As a former gymnast and track athlete I was in search of a workout that challenged me as much as my sports did, but also catered to some of my pre-existing injuries. After trying all different types of exercise – yoga, cardio, olympic lifting – 360 Fitness was the first to meet all the things I was looking for. My trainer, Bre Twett, pushes me to better my cardiovascular abilities while strengthening and stabilizing large muscle groups in cardio circuits and strength building exercises. We focus on proper form to build the right kind of strength that isn’t damaging to the body, something my athletic history understands and is able to work with. Walking out of a workout breathing heavily and dripping sweat is always a great feeling. When I finish a 360 workout I get that feeling of accomplishment but also confidence, because I know that the exercises I just did were good for my body and mind. This type of high intensity training was making a difference that I could see! Building muscle is more than throwing around weights, the movement of the body is crucial for healthy progress, 360 gets that!

I started personal training with Bre about 6 months ago, because my body felt like a train wreck. I had bad posture, no strength, horrible balance, and was overweight. After just 6 weeks of using my own body weight for exercising, I have found balance, developed a tremendous amount of strength, lost weight, and can actually stand up straight again. She is very professional, an unbelievable motivator, highly knowledgeable, and her attention to detail in adapting the workouts to fit your body type is truly remarkable. Bre will work you hard to achieve the results you are looking for, and will exceed your expectations.
