"Brooke is an ideal personal trainer. She explains everything to you, so you understand what muscles you are working out. She changes things up, so you are not doing the samething everytime. She is on time, never forgot about me. She cares about your progress and gives tips for after and before workouts (what to eat, how to help your sore muscles). Most of all she is a pretty awesome person, I mean who likes working out with a boring, bossy trainer, you want someone who cares about you and your body and can make you laugh away some of the pain. I HIGHLY recommend Brooke!"
Tabitha F - Raymore
"Brooke is an AMAZING trainer, she is very motivating and keeps me focused on my goals. She also does a great job of keeping me accountable outside of the gym. I eat better because I don't want to waste her time or mine."
Jeremy S. - Raymore
"My time working with Brooke Higgins was exceptional!! EXCELLENT trainer and even better person! She has a great personality and relates well to all her clients. Having also been trained by Brooke, her workouts are amazing! I would recommend Brooke to anyone looking for a trainer!!"
Brett G. - Raymore
" I enjoy working out with Brooke. She stays positive and drives me to get more out of my workout than I can by myself."
Kevin K. - Raymore
"I do want to recognize Kaitlyn Bailey for her tremendous work over the last two months. Kaitlyn has a gift for working with clients, like myself, who start their journey at the lowest fitness level. She has worked with me to modify exercises when needed, while still pushing me a little past my comfort zone with each visit. An example - two months ago, I started doing squats by sitting down & up on a bench. Later, I would squat by leaning against a balance ball and rolling it up and down a wall. Next, came a traditional squat, but with the safety net of a bench behind me. Yesterday, I was doing squats while standing on a wobble ball. A small accomplishment indeed, but a huge one to me. I came to Bodies not knowing if I would make it past the orientation session. Two months in, and I've never felt better. Thanks,"
Sara - Lees Summit
"Love the place, it's great work environment and even better workout! Staff and clients are all so friendly and helpful. Thanks Bodies "
Kelly P - Kansas City
"My instructor was Sean and I went to bodies twice a week to get in shape so i could join the army. In two months i saw substantial weight loss and massive gains in muscle mass and strength and I gained much needed cardio that i lacked. In 3 months time I saw that I was lifting more and could do more things as my entire body got stronger. The staff was very nice and helpful and always willing to give advice. If I wasn't deploying soon I would go back. Thank you Sean and Brad at Lee's Summit, Bodies personal training. "
Jared Spears - Lee Summit
"Bodies has been a very positive/uplifting experience. There is a positive environment. Knowing Ambrah and her heart is different than other trainers I have had. Through Ambrah’s encouragement/weight training I have lost 11 lbs and 11 inches. Also using My Fitness Pal and logging exactly what I eat has been an eye opener. The encouragement from Ambrah and the results you see are all the motivation I need. I would encourage anyone to try this out. The most important thing is knowing our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit and we need to be mindful of how we are treating it. The more we work at it and the more positive results we receive. Just as we when we read and spend time with the Father we are encouraged and feel stronger. Thank you Brad and Jen for allowing the Lord to give you a vision for people and caring about them enough to give of your time. Thank you, Ambrah for your sweet spirit, expertise, encouragement and friendship. "
Robin W - Kansas City, Missouri
"My experience with Bodies has been great! I am a “cardio fool” and have been for a long time. I love to be pushed and challenged with training for races but was looking for a new experience and challenge with weight training instead of just cardio!! That is why I came to Bodies. Now I would say I am slowly becoming a “weight fool”! I definitely feel stronger and my body feels a little tighter. It is a good feeling!! I LOVE the friendly staff. I love that you feel a connection with everyone when you are working hard and you all had to get out of bed early for the same common goal. It makes you feel united with a group of people that you don’t even know. I try to always think about the end result. I know what I want to see in the end and I try to always stay focused on that. It takes time and dedication and that is probably the hardest part. Patience is “key” (and Alyssa would probably say I am lacking in that area!) “JUST DO IT”!!! If you think about it too long you will find a million reasons to NOT do it. At least just schedule a consultation and see what it is about. That is free! If it is money, I am sure you can think of areas to cut back so you can put some money toward your health. Do you really need those new shoes or clothes or Stabucks or dinner out? Probably not…there is no better way to spend money than on ensuring a longer, healthier life and having someone at Bodies help you transform your mind and your body into lifelong healthy habits!!!"
Michelle Israelite - Lees Summit, MO
"I found you guys on Google and have been coming for almost 3 months. The workouts that you do are completely different; it is fun and the results are awesome! I've seen weight loss and strength gained. Try it and you will see how much fun it is! I am excited to do Tough Mudder this October with Bodies!"
Daniel Summers - Lee's Summit
"I love the Bodies Personal Training experience. The trainers are nice, friendly, like to joke around with you and make you feel comfortable and want to see you succeed. I heard about Bodies from a Living Social deal. Since it isn’t far from where I live, I thought I’d try it out, fully expecting to probably not go back. However, I have been back every week for about 3 months now! That says a lot in itself. I love Bodies because it is a more personal experience. You work one on one with your trainer, or with a small group so you always have someone watching you and helping you work out in the correct positions. They also hold you accountable whereas a regular gym allows you to “cheat” because no one is helping you, and therefore you may not achieve your goals. The trainers are also there to motivate you when you think you can do no more. Did I also mention how much fun it is to have someone you can banter back and forth with?! What keeps me motivated? I must say, it definitely helps when your trainer is easy on the eyes! Sean also pushes me but still understands my limits as well. He is positive and encouraging to all of his clients, which I know works for me. I do not respond well to someone yelling or talking me down because they think that will push me to work harder. It does not work. Since beginning training with Sean, I have noticed my thighs and backside really toning up. :) I have lost several inches and clothes are now starting to have some more room in them. A smaller pant size will be needed soon! Advice I would give to someone thinking about going to Bodies would be to give it a shot and go from there. Although it can be more expensive than attending a regular gym, you can easily reap more benefits in a shorter amount of time and develop a fantastic support system. I would definitely refer a friend to Bodies Personal Training! I have mentioned it on Facebook several times so I am definitely promoting Bodies! Also, I have noticed several recent changes – the retail area, the newly painted lockers and freshly painted walls. Keep it up! You guys rock! "
Lauren B - Lees Summit
"I learned about Bodies through Living Social (great marketing tool, Brad and Jen!). I've been with Bodies since the end of Februrary 2012. I'm really pleased with my experience at Bodies. I've always been a little reluctant to try a personal trainer for fear of being screamed at by some jerk trainer. I'm not sure where I got that idea, but it's definitely NOT like that at Bodies. Sean is very encouraging and even though I work my butt off (literally), I have fun with him and the other clients. The other trainers are super nice, and Brad always greets me by name when I'm there, so I always feel welcomed. Even after long days at work, I look forward to going. I've never had a trainer before, but compared to other gyms, I think Bodies is more laid back. The trainers mean business, but I don't have to fight for a piece of equipment and I don't feel like anyone's judging me or trying to show off. It's a positive environment, and I have the guidance and expertise from my trainer to get the most out of my workout and to hit every part of my body. Quit making excuses and just try it. You have nothing to lose, except maybe a few pounds and inches. If you're worried about the expense of a trainer, take the money you're spending on fast food, premium cable channels and gaming apps and apply it towards a trainer (at Bodies, of course). It's an investment in your health, and it's so worth it to have the attention of a personal trainer to help you meet your goals. Maybe this will sound a kind of vain, but my motivation comes from seeing my body change and getting compliments from my friends and family. Hearing, "Wow! You are really looking great, Lisa!" makes the sweat and the soreness all worth it. Muscles! I have them! I'm really starting to notice some definition in my arms, legs and back. I'm not bulking up, but the fat is going away and the muscles are starting to emerge. I've also lost 10 pounds and about 15 inches at my weigh in and measurements about a month ago (according to my scale at home, I've lost another 2 pounds since then!). My waist is smaller, my clothes are looser, and I've been getting all kinds of compliments, too! I workout outside of Bodies, but I've definitely seen a change in my shape and muscle tone since I started working with Sean. Sean is great! I tell anyone who asks what I've been doing to get in shape and lose weight that I workout at home, I've changed my eating habits and I go to Bodies. I have to be honest, though: I haven't actually told anyone, "you should call them, here's their number" - not because I don't think they'd have the same success as I have, but more because I'm stingy with my secret weapon. Sorry guys! I'm working through my issues with sharing. Despite my selfishness, I did encourage my husband to start going to Bodies. I don't know if he actually listened to me or if he decided to go because I'm looking so good and he realized he has to step his game up! :D"
Lisa Berry - Lees Summit
"I just felt that at the age of 54, I needed to do something for me. It’s a bonus that my son is getting married soon and now I will feel great for that special day. Let’s just say, I am sleeping better and it’s me time. It has kept me on track. I know that being with a trainer has made my goals easier to obtain. I have lost about 30 inches and 30 pounds so far. Everyone at Bodies is enthusiastic about what they are doing. I like the atmosphere of a smaller gym which is not over crowded. I know it seems like a tough thing to get started, but I did it at my age and now I’m feeling great. It really helps physically and mentally. Just try it. You don’t have to have a special occasion to do it for yourself. Just decide that you are the special occasion. "
Kim Smith - Lees Summit
"With a family and friends dynamic Bodies is a great place to go to get the knowledge and support to not only get a healthier body but a healthy life! They helped me get in shape for prom. Get in shape after college and now get in shape for my Wedding! I love them (even if they are family)! "
Kat Woods - North Carolina
"THE VERY BEST TRAINERS IN TOWN are also some the the KINDEST people I have ever known!"

Tyler Trodden - Bear Mountain, New York
"Greatest trainers anywhere! This is the best group of folks to help you get in shape. Excellent nutritional support and great trainers. Check them out!"
Sage - Lees Summit
"It's a great gym to jump start your new goals, weight loss, toning or just body building...they do it all well!"
Paige W - Kansas City
"Phenomenal personal trainers. Brad & Jen have created a great gym, and a fantastic team of very talented personal trainers who care for their clients very much."
Placher S - Overland Park, KS
"Great personal trainers. Personal service from trainers who care about your success"
Greg Hull - Lee's Summit
"This place is great! I never thought I needed training (or could afford it) but I was wrong. Not only are the trainers knowledgeable, but they are also great people. I've been lifting hard for 6 years and Alyssa has taught me so much just in the short time I have been training there."
Matthew Van Doremalen - Lee's Summit
"I love that I get an amazing hardcore work out every time I'm there with great trainers! The studio is set up perfectly where it's welcoming and clean and when I'm there I feel like part of their family"
Maeghan W - Blue Springs, MO
"I love working out with Brad. In 6 weeks I have lost 9lbs and many inches. I recently had a baby and gained a lot of weight. Since training at their facility, I have gotten a lot of comments about how good I am looking. They also really help you keep motivated and supplement your training with helpful nutrition consultations. Thank you for all your help."
Kelly L - Lee's Summit
"You guys at Bodies are always smiling and have a blast working out. You generally care about your clients and their families. It’s a smaller gym so its not chaotic which I used to hate about the big gyms. At Bodies when you leave you cannot wait to come back. There is no more dreading the gym for me, it’s the highlight of my day!! I keep LOOSING weight and inches. I can actually see my muscles and it’s just plain fun at Bodies. Anytime I am not feeling it or have no energy Sean knows just how to motivate me and push me when I need it most. He won’t let me short change myself and I always leave knowing I gave it everything! I have lost over fifty pounds. I used to be a size 14 (and that was tight) and now wear a size 9 (its usually loose) I have muscle definition I have never had and strength I did not think was possible. I LOVE IT!!! I have been in and out of gyms since I got out of the Army in 2006 and never have I felt so motivated to work out like I do at Bodies. Everyone is always smiling and it is like a second home to Kylie and I. Sean makes my workouts fun and even though it hurts like crazy I am still having a blast. Sean is a great trainer, he has taught me how to push myself past what I think I cannot do. I ABSOLUTELY recommend Bodies and Sean Corson to everyone I can. DO IT NOW!!! Go in and get a consultation. Check out the webpage and the amazing results of Bodies clients (where you will also fine mine!). If you didn't ever think working out was fun you definitely will if you go to Bodies. My daughter who is 8 recently started training with Sean and I have to say thank you so much to Bodies for giving my daughter and I the experience of training together. I have never seen her so happy and motivated about something. This is something we can share and memories that will last a lifetime. I love you guys at Bodies. Nothing compares to how Bodies has completely and totally changed my life. I am happy in my own skin and can look in the mirror and finally like what I see."
Jessica H - Harrisonville, MO
"My clients are my friends, and my working partners my family. I always do my best to end on good terms or do my best to let the ones I've trained before know I still care, and still appreciate them. I love my job the people i work with and most of all, love seeing people smile when they leave! Well most of the time... unless its legs. ;-) "It doesnt matter the client, everyones there to make themselves a better person.""
Sean Corson (Bodies Personal Trainer) - Harrisonville, MO
"My experience with Bodies has been invaluable! Before I started sessions at Bodies I was starting to feel like I was in a workout rut and wasn’t seeing any results. But now I have so much more motivation and have learned new routines and exercises to keep me moving in the right direction. I’ve hit my target weight and seen an overall higher level of fitness and endurance. Having personalized workouts really does keep me motivated and holds me accountable. If I know Brad is putting thought into what workouts are best for me I feel compelled to hold up my end of the deal by eating well and getting to the gym on my non-Bodies days. I definitely recommend giving it a try. I’ve learned so many more workout tips and ideas, more than I would have learned by myself. It really has been such an invaluable addition to my workout routine!"
Elizabeth - North Kansas City
"We feel great about “Bodies.” Everyone is very friendly, and we like the atmosphere here. Our bodies are physically changing and our clothes are loose! Also we have much more energy during the day. Our eating habits have changed too. We love the flexible schedules, good variety of equipment & workouts, keeping track of counting calories and water intake. Our goals keep us pushing through and our trainer encourages us. Anyone thinking about the service: Just do it, we’re having a great experience so far and are having fun too! Also, love that you have Christa Northup is available for massage, she is awesome!"
Cherra & Jim - Lee's Summit, MO
"Hey I have seem to have lost something. Something in which has been close to me for a very long time. Not something of value but something through a long relationship I came to know very well. So I ask of you to join with me in this great day. A day in which I have lost my outer shell! That outer shall has disappeared and is no longer slowing me down. My outer shell being gone is causing me to lose my pants! I cant seem to keep them up without a belt around my waist. So please join with me in celebration of losing ones self so that the inner man may be glorified in the body! As to shaping my body and yours we shape our lives! 1 Cor 6:19,20 our body is the temple of the Lord! We should keep it in his glory and not ours! ;-) thanks for everything guys!"
Tim - Raytown, MO
"I love training at Bodies! Taking that first step to come in and make that change has been one of the best decisions that I ever made. Alyssa has made this a wonderful experience. It's such a good feeling being able to fit into clothes I couldn't a month ago.The difference between Bodies and elsewhere is the personal attention and care that I receive from Bodies. Alyssa goes above and beyond to help me. For somebody that is thinking about coming to Bodies I would tell them don’t hesitate, you won’t regret coming here. I said it before, it’s one of the best decisions that I ever made! "
Courtney Southard - Harrisonville
"Bodies gave me the motivation to finally get my butt in gear, because even though I knew what kind of cardio and resistance training exercises I would benefit from, I never did them. They provide great work outs, progressive home training programs, nutritional advice, and gave me information about my "baseline" so I can see improvements along the way. Time seems to be the biggest obstacle as a graduate student in Physical Therapy, working part-time on the weekends, volunteering, and maintaining somewhat of a social life. =) Once I started working out regularly it felt so good that I wanted to keep going back, so now if I don't work out 5x a week I feel sluggish and a little guilty! I haven't reached any of my "official goals" yet, but already I look and FEEL so much better (and people have noticed) because I'm eating healthy and have more energy throughout the day. I just pulled out a pair of pants I hadn't worn in over a year and .... they fit perfectly again! It's those little victories that keep me going! "
Emily - Kansas City, MO
"I have been working out with Brad for 1 ½ years and have noticed major changes. I came into the gym not knowing what or how to get in shape but I have now gained approx. 40lbs. of lean muscle. The atmosphere in the gym is like a family where they care about you inside and outside of the gym. I have also ran multiple races from 5K to half-marathons with Brad, when you want to quit he will continually motivate you to do better."
Steve - Lone Jack, MO
"What a blessing it has been to be a part of Bodies! I have been going for well over a year and have loved every minute of it. Brad and all the staff are awesome. Everyone is kind, welcoming, patient, energetic, enthusiastic and challenging. I work mostly with Ambrah but have worked with many of the other trainers and they all have been so positive and helpful. I (and my family) have seen a change in me; I am stronger, more toned, have added energy and have even had to have many pants taken in at the waist! Yay! The music they play is motivating and wholesome. It gets me going and energized to push myself and believe me, if I were working out on my own, I'd never push myself. Thank you Bodies for making health & fitness fun!"
Jennifer Spears - PLEASANT HILL
"Bodies Personal Training has the best personal trainers and the best personal training PRICING!!! They also have free group runs every Saturday 3-14 miles long right here in Lees Summit! Love these guys and you will too!"
Carla Sallas - Lee's Summit
"Brad and Jen have given me a confidence that I didn't have before. I not only know what I'm doing but I've helped family and friends with workout and diet questions. Brad has been more than just a boss in the weight room, he's inspired me to learn what he's teaching and to continue to educate myself even after we've finished. Jen has instilled healthy eating choices that I am proud to serve my children."
Nicole P. - Independence, MO
"My husband and I have been working out with Jen and Brad since July 2009. Both of us have seen dramatic results. We have lost body fat and feel stronger and healthier than EVER. We have become very close to the McClearys and treasure the friendship that's developed in addition to the increasingly healthier lifestyle. Brad and Jen prove that being in shape is more than just the number on the scale. It's truly about mind, body and soul. You can't have one without the others. "
Melissa and Patrick W. - Lee's Summit, MO
"Brad is a great trainer, motivator and lifestyle changer. Brad has worked with me and my injuries to do a routine that does not aggravate them. Jen is an awesome resource of information about nutrition and is an influential person towards my diet lifestyle change. I tried several approaches towards my weight loss and I did not have as much success as I am having now. In 8 1/2 weeks I have lost 22 pounds, 18 1/2 inches overall and 6 1/2 inches off my waist, I feel healthier, more alert and I have tons of energy. Thanks to Brad and Jen I feel better informed about nutrition and with their help I was able to change my diet to one that is sensible and sustainable, that is working for me, and that I do not have to starve or feel that I am starving and I can still dine out at least once a week and still lose weight (fat). In the past I have tried the meetings, the work out DVD's and the membership contracts. In the meetings I felt like another face in the crowd where I felt shamed into losing weight; and yea don't get me started with counting points. While with the work out DVDs I could not do most of the exercises due to my past injuries and as far as the gym memberships, I was just another contract to them and they got paid regardless of the progress I made or lack of. Now I feel my goal is a obtainable and my new lifestyle change is sustainable, and I do not have to buy high priced specialized food to maintain my diet to lose weight. Brad has helped me build muscle and lose fat. Now I see some muscle definition in some areas of my body and I feel stronger thanks to him. Before meeting Brad, I was out of breath and in pain (injuries) just by climbing a few flights of stairs. Now I can tackle that task with no sweat. With Brad's help, he guided me to change my lifestyle to enjoy workouts and now I feel motivated to continue working out with Brad. I am excited about the results and I like what I see. I am even more excited with what I am going to look like by the end of this year. Thanks to Brad and Jen I have lost fat and gained muscle. The proof is in the lost inches, pounds and increased strength without starving and not having to feel weak or shameful. If you feel that you have failed in the past like I have, you should give Brad and Jen's service a try. They are true professionals, great motivators and genuinely care about your progress. They don't get paid more for making you feel sore."
Jason C. - Kansas City, MO
"I'm so glad I chose Brad and Jen to help me reach my fitness goals. I went to them after having a baby. I was ready to get back in shape and I knew a personal trainer would give me that accountability piece I really needed. I have always been an active person, but they have given me the tools to push myself harder than I would have working out on my own. I love the fact that they have taught me new exercises techniques to keep me from getting bored. They have such a well rounded program. Not only do you get to build muscle and shed pounds in their gym, but they customize the workouts based on the clients individual needs."
Jamie H. - Oak Grove, MO
"Well, let’s see. I’ve been a client for years and keep coming back for more abuse. I love the fact that you guys concentrate on training and the workout and not selling products or your services. Your service speaks for itself and doesn’t need to be “sold”. I like that if I feel something isn’t working for me or I feel a certain area needs more attention, you alter the workout to address that. And I like that you push for me to work harder without being mean or forceful. You’re my trainer and I know that if I want to see results it’s up to me, you don’t force it. Oh yeah, the best part is your willingness to work out a schedule that’s best for both of us."
Susanne J. - Independence, MO
"Motivation and accountability are great tools to use in weight loss and training programs. Brad McCleary flawlessly executes both of theses abilities as a trainer with strong Christian values. Brad has the knowledge and experience to keep the programs in line with whatever path to success you choose. I have been in a resistance training program with Brad for a little more than three years. My initial weight loss and success has only faltered with my commitment and effort. Brad has always been available to give 100% to my goal. He has always had the knowledge and ability to see where you are, and change things up to help keep you making progress."
Kim B. - Independence, MO
"I still remember when my doctor told me I should start working out to keep up my health. I was 80 years old and I hadn't worked out a day in my life so going to a gym was a pretty scary thought. Brad not only showed me what to do, he took me under his wing and became my fitness resource. Now I'm 84, still with Brad, and I feel younger today than I did going to the gym that first day. "
Mary D. - Independence, MO
"Brad McCleary has been one of my favorite people for almost four years. His Christian ethics shine through in his training, and I know he actually wants to help people. When I turned fifty-five I wanted to get strong enough to water ski again, which had been my passion when I was young. I contracted for personal training sessions with Brad and was pleasantly surprised at the progress an “old girl” like me could make. Not only did I feel better, but I looked much better. With three sessions a week, I was able to increase my stamina and feeling of wellbeing, while dropping a dress size. When I had my annual physical my heart was strong, my bone mass had actually increased, and the doctor was very surprised at how healthy I was! I actually look forward to my work-outs, instead of dreading them, which was how I felt without a trainer. I am happy to say I have been able to water ski these last two summers and look forward to many more!"
Carol C. - Blue Springs, MO
"Even if you only buy one package, working out with Brad will teach you how to work out the right way!"
Nick M. - Lee's Summit
"Brad and Jen are the answer to my prayers! They are the perfect mix of motivation and accountability. With the help of their nutritional knowledge I am able to make this a permanent life change. I had given up on “working out” and they helped me to find fun and enjoyment again through exercise. I have them to thank for making my wedding day more beautiful then I could have imagined! Thank you guys for all that you do!"
Heidi T. - Independence, MO
"All I can say is just do it! I wasn't ready to start any of kind of exercise program, but I knew I had to do something. I also knew that it would have been easy for me to join a gym but I knew I would have never gone. I need that accountability and Bodies Trainers were the ones for me. They are AWESOME!! If I would have said to myself, I'll start when I'm ready, I'd still be sitting on the couch today. My main reason for getting into shape was because of my children, I wanted to play, ride bikes, just have fun with them and not be a parent that stood and watched them from a far. I started seeing Brad and Jen in February of 2009 and made a goal to lose 70 lbs. One year later I lost the 70 lbs and lost 55 total body inches, Thanks to Brad and Jen! No longer do I have high blood pressure and my health is better than it has been in years and now I am riding bikes and playing with my children!! Not just the main goal I have reached, but it's the little things on a daily bases that make a difference, like getting up in the morning and not being sore or running up my stairs rather then slowly walking up them using the hand rail, and being able to cross my legs at the knee and not the ankle sure makes me feel good!! Now I have set another goal and I will reach it as well with the help of Bodies Personal Training. They had faith in me from the start and still do. They have given me back my confidence. Another main reason I choose Brad and Jen is because of their faith in Jesus Christ, it is inspiring to me that a young couple such as Brad and Jen have so much faith. Thank you Brad and Jen you have made me a new person and I will never go back to the old Mary."
