I have been working out and training with Ubbe Liljeblad at his fitness studio for almost eighteen months.   I have thoroughly enjoyed my workout sessions with Ubbe.  He is very knowledgeable about all aspects of training and the human body.  Ubbe tailors the workout to the individual.  He listens to your health concerns and helps you realize your goals.  The most important thing is he lets you set your goals.  He is there to help in a variety of ways such as tailoring the workouts, counseling, encouragement and he also becomes your biggest fan and cheerleader.  I set a goal to lose twenty-five pounds which would get me back to a weight I maintained 20 years ago and I am happy to say with Ubbe’s help I have achieved that goal.  Along the way I have learned a lot too.  Ubbe is very knowledgeable about the body, muscle building, muscle protection and how the body works in general.  Our workouts can be strenuous, but there is an element of fun and education that makes the whole experience of trying to get into better shape and living healthier a whole lot easier than I ever imagined.

I would recommend Ubbe to anyone that is serious about getting in better shape and looking for a healthier life style.

In August of 2011, I contacted Ubbe Liljeblad. I was at that time, a three year breast cancer survivor, my once athletic body was bloated from chemotherapy and steroids, which had saved my life. I had been diagnosed with two different, aggressive and advanced forms of breast cancer at age 44. I was ready to get my body back, and regain my health. I have always been conscious of what I put into my body. I had been a fit and healthy mother of two boys. Organic food, exercise and athletics were part of my daily routine. Until that terrible diagnosis, and the fight for my life; I had gained more than 60 pounds during my treatment and chemotherapy. I had no idea where to start to regain my health, and to shed the unhealthiness that had plagued me for the last few years, post diagnosis and treatment.

I began to work with Ubbe, and with his expert training regimen and diet, and was able to quickly drop almost 50 pounds. My “tumor markers” continue to hover around “normal.” Both my internist as well as my Oncology team are amazed, and continue to support my healthy lifestyle. Ubbe is still an amazing part of my support system, and continues to offer a wealth of information regarding health, prevention of illness, weight loss and management, and a personal cheerleader for my continued strength and good health. I have recently reached the five year marker of my original diagnosis, and have been declared “No Evidence of Disease.” I am strong, fit and healthy. Cancer is now in my past. With Ubbe’s guidance, encouragement and support, I continue to reap the benefits of a healthy lifestyle that I never thought was attainable for me.

I strongly recommend a personal lifestyle shift and regimen, with Ubbe. You will only welcome the healthy lifestyle, newly discovered strength, and profound changes in your mind and body, as well as ways of thinking about your health and the one body we are given, that Ubbe can so easily help you attain.

As a professional Pilates and yoga teacher, I became discouraged with the recurring low-grade injuries I was experiencing; rotator cuff,  knee instability, occasional low back issues. When I tried to work myself vigorously, I would always get visited by an old injury, or new discomfort. I started working with Ubbe 6 months ago and he has been a savior! He has been able to analyze and problem solve, with me, to set up a program that’s really working. I’m stronger than I have been in years, and pain-free in my most challenging moves and postures!

As a fellow health and fitness professional, I have known Ubbe for over 20 years. He is well respected for his commitment to thorough, enthusiastic and science-based work with clients – all shapes and sizes are welcome in his studio. Most notably, Ubbe “walks his talk”…his work is a testimonial to his passion for total body health, inside and out. He is a warrior for wellness!

I have known Ubbe Liljeblad for 16 years and believe he is one of the finest personal fitness trainers and all-around health, fitness and nutrition professionals I’ve ever met. I’ve worked one-on-one with Ubbe in the gym and have attended a variety of his group fitness classes. I’ve also attended and learned from his talks on wellness and nutrition, and am an avid reader of his health-related postings on Facebook and other sites.

Ubbe has a gift for helping people achieve a healthy, balanced lifestyle and reach their full fitness potential. In the gym he exudes calm and professionalism, leading workouts and teaching sessions with humor, grace and an ever-encouraging style. I’m grateful for the fact that Ubbe Liljeblad is a personal friend, as well as my fitness trainer, and am in awe of his skill as a fitness pro.
