“Doug Murphy has helped me to not only lose 44 lbs so far (YAY!) but also to increase my fitness level significantly. When I started seeing Doug I could not walk up a flight of stairs without being winded but now I can complete a 1+ hour kickboxing class at Results Gym. Doug gives intense workouts that have increased my stamina and have reshaped my body.”

GP, Silver Spring, MD

“After 2 kids and years of not exercising I didn’t think I could ever get back in shape. I’ve tried gyms and diets….nothing really worked. After 4 months of working out with Doug I’ve not only lost 20 lbs, but got muscle definition to show off. I now weigh and look like I did when I was 18!!! I am a believer!!!”

T. Rosenbaum, Potomac, MD


Dealing with physical issues? Don’t despair. As you get older, your workout routine needs to adapt to your changing body. I work with deconditioned older adults, post-rehab clients, chronic pain sufferers, and others with multiple health challenges.  I’ve gotten results for clients up to 92 years old. You can do it!
