The first three weeks training with Adolphus was a decent experience since I was paying $150 a week for four times.  He then told me to purchase a package deal or no more training, I got the feeling he was hurting for money.  He made the agreement of 30 sessions for $900, I was nervous but decided there was no other option.

After I came back from Christmas break he cancelled several times then told me he would be there.  We trained 14 times over three months.  He no showed 11 times and cancelled 7.  After I confronted him several times to explain how important my health and fitness was he told me that he knew I wasn't going to renew and if I wanted to continue to train with him I would have to pay an additional $500.  Even though he still has not made good on 16 times nor would he give a refund.

Adolphus Vaughn is the "Ripoff King!"  During my times trainging with him, he did become verbally abusive and would make up lies so that he would then place the blame on me, not being accountable for any of his no shows or cancellations.  He always has an excuse. 

If you do decide to use Adolphus don't leave your wife alone, he will hit on her and make sexual advances the entire time of training.

Awesome Trainer

AUTHOR: Regina S - (United States of America)

So many times I take at face value some of the stuff I read on the internet.  But too many times you only read about the disgruntled consumer and not those that have a great experience.  My husband and I have been working out with Aldolphus Vaughn for 4 months.  I was cautious after reading poor reviews but decided that a few free sessions will tell me if they were true.  I instantly liked his philosophy on fitness and his no nonsense workout on the very first free session.  We signed up initially for 60 sessions and have already renewed for many more. 

There was a time when I was an active runner and fitness enthusiast but after serving a career in the service and a knee injury and just the aches and pains of growing older, I just sort of quit and quickly fell out of shape, gained weight etc.  I went to Unique Fitness to start some weight lifting and low impact training.  The very first thing we discussed my weak areas, what hurts, what's aches, my concerns.   I told him I only wanted low impact, no running jumping etc.  Over the first 2 months we were worked on strength and every session he emphasized diet and protein shakes....every session almost to my annoyance, but I listened and gradually "got with the program".  

I didn't realize what he was doing, but do now.  He saw my weaknesses as challenges and before I know it I started to see improvement and feel stronger.  One day he told me to get on the treadmill and run for a minute and I grimaced knowing it would hurt.  He encouraged me to try. I did and was amazed at how good it felt.  I was running again and feeling great, no pain.  I'm running, jumping, lunging...you name it.  He's helped me to strengthen those muscles needed to support that type of activity and I feel great.

This man is an awesome, no nonsense trainer.  I never feel like I've wasted any time during his sessions. I get a full session, at which I'm exhausted by the end, every time.  I look forward to working out with him and would recommend him to anyone who's serious about getting in shape.  If you're looking for somewhere to look cute in your workout clothes and just talk about fitness, this is not the place to go, but if you're serious about getting in shape and want a trainer who focuses on you and building you to your potential, this is the place to come.

Your Kidding Right?

AUTHOR: Adolphus Vaughn/ owner Uniquefitnes - (United States of America)

I'm Adolphus. Owner and trainer for Unique Fitness. Where I have been in business now for 6 years! I was recently made aware of this negative posting by one of my Longtime clients whom I have been training now for over 4 years. I first want to say that it's almost virtually impossible to rebutt someone who remains anonymous.. After reading the posting. The first thing that comes to mind? Is why did this individual wait until practically a "Year" to file this complaint. Which they speak of Christmas. That's almost 8 months. That's the first shady thing I noticed. Secondly, they mentioned something about not letting their wives train with me. So are you telling me? Whoever you are. That I came on too your wife for an extended period of time, and you "Still" allowed her to frequent my facility and subjest herself to this humiliation? I think not!! So in my defense. I ask that "Anyone" reading this nonsense.. Please look between the lines and the message being sent and make a wise a sensable decision on what you believe.. This has to be someone with entirely too much time on their hand to try and slander and defame my character.. For ALL those interested in the most affordable, reliable and best trainer on the planet. Please come and see me before you make any decision on you health and well being. You will definitely not be disappointed! My Word! Over that of some disgruntled unhappy individual. Who let's their wife go through that? I'll tell you. NO ONE! That's who. Thank you.

Recommendation for Unique Fitness

AUTHOR: Gary - (United States of America)

My wife and I engaged Adolphus Vaughn as our personal trainer.  We signed up for 30 sessions and are very pleased with his efforts and training techniques.  Ive been in sports and worked with coaches since the 4th grade and Adolphus possesses the same characteristics as all successful coaches.  He is very driven and results oriented and demands hard work and discipline.  He can be very tough and an in your face type coach, but has always been very courteous and respectful.  I would recommend him as a personal trainer to anyone who is dedicated to achieving results.  This is not a social gym.  This is a gym for people who are serious about improving their health and bodies.      Gary Payne, CPA
