When I reached out to Benny, I was ready to give up on my physical health. I had been told by doctors that I needed surgery on my lower back. I was in unbearable pain.Benny did an evaluation and gave me some incredible feedback. The issue was my lack of mobility. All the pressure was on my lower back. I needed to work on my hip mobility, core and glutes. He told me to give him three to four months and he would have me back on my feet. True to his word, I am back! After a couple of months, I was exercising without pain. By the fourth month, I was squatting, lunging and jumping with no pain. It used to hurt to walk and trying to put my socks on in the morning was very painful. Now I am pain free!! I highly recommend thisgym, they know what they are doing. I am so grateful to have found Benny and his knowledgeable staff at Ultima Fitness.
Response from the owner: For the opportunity!!

Ultima fitness in Plano is a great find! Benny the owner, has created a top-notch fitness spot that's all about helping you reach your fitness goals. He knows all about nutrition.The personal training is excellent. They take the time to get to know you, what motivates and demotivates you and adapt as they go. The time flies by when I'm training there. The facility is spotless and has a super positive and friendly vibe. If you're in Plano and looking to get fitter, this is your place. Benny and his team will make sure you're well taken care of.

My husband, daughter, and I started going to Ultima Fitness on Feb 1 2023. I had taken the step mainly to get my daughter and husband fit. They were skeptical when we started and did not want to attend personal training sessions anywhere. Now they are more interested in getting to the center than me. Benny has been a great trainer. In addition, he has guided us to improve our eating habits by sharing his immense knowledge about healthy living with all of us. His advice and training have shown tremendous changes in all three of us in just two months. Primarily it has been a game changer for my husband's pre-diabetic blood sugar level. His fasting blood glucose levels used to fluctuate between 120 and 130. In just a month, his fasting glucose level is consistently in the range of 90 and 99. We are delighted that we found this family-friendly Gym which is not overwhelming like the big gyms. It is a very comfortable setting. All the personal trainers are just great. They all know what they are doing and sincerely help every client. I highly recommend Benny and his team to anyone looking to be fit and lead a healthy lifestyle. You will not be disappointed at all!!
Response from the owner: Thank you Viji for the opportunity. We are glad that you and your family have chosen ultima fitness for your fitness goals.

Love this place and Benny! He makes working out FUN, and has so much knowledge on everything (not just exercises). He has helped us immensely with our eating, stretching, supplements, managing stress, etc etc etc. Every trainer is so fun and bubbly and it is a great community to be a part of!
Response from the owner: Thank you Mallory. We do our best to make sure our client get to their fitness goals, and their longevity through nutrition and lifestyle.

Excellent trainers and a fantastic Gym. Benny and Sam will keep you on your toes throughout the sessions. You wouldn't go wrong with any of the trainers you are working with since they all care about "training" you and getting you healthier. My whole family works out here at Ultima Fitness, and we have fundamentally changed our eating and workout habits to the healthier side. We are getting healthier, stronger, and feel more energetic together. I was pre-diabetic before I joined Ultima Fitness, and I am happy to report that my fasting glucose is now in the mid-nineties. You know the typical range of numbers that shocks your Primary care Physician. 🙂 into asking, "How is this possible? I didn't give you any medication". We are glad we found Ultima Fitness and hope you can too!
Response from the owner: Thank you Raj. We are so happy to have you and your family at ultima fitness. We always strive to set a higher standard in training, which include nutrition and lifestyle change. You can never outrun a bad diet.

Absolutely the best personal training available. I’ve had several PTs over the years and Benny has been the only one who understood how to enable a change for the better. I’m 48 and in better shape than most 30 year olds. Come on out and see for yourself!

I’m so glad I found Ultima Fitness. This gym is exactly what I was looking for…strength training, a nutrition consultation, and the accountability that comes with scheduled personal training. The 1:1 guided workouts with the trainers are never boring, but definitely effective. The gym has lots of options for different exercises. The cherry on top is that the owner, Benny, is a super nice guy who is very knowledgeable and loves to help people. I usually workout with Benny, but I also workout with Carlos who is also a great trainer. These guys know what they are doing and keep me safe, but work me hard to reach my fitness goals. The gym is clean and I feel very comfortable there. I highly recommend Ultima Fitness.
Response from the owner: Hi Stacy.Thank you for choosing us for your fitness goals. We are very passionate about helping everyone reach their fitness goals, and quality if their life. Than you for the opportunity.

If you are looking for a gym where every minute counts, where you are guided in every aspect of your health, nutrition, supplementation, look no further. Results are the only goal at Ultima Fitness. In our opinion boutique style gyms with personal attention and training are the way to go if you are looking to dramatically and quickly turn your health around, lose weight, and/or build muscle and endurance. My husband and I are in our 50s and during Covid, our health took back seat. We knew we had to take action. The owner Benny is a guru of information and pushes us in ways we just know we won't push ourselves. It's a delight to go work out and we look forward to every session. In a very short time we've lost 20 pounds and put on 5-6 pounds of muscle, but we're not done! Beyond this, we feel great, have more energy and sleep like a rock. Benny and staff are so knowledgeable, professional and motivated. Big box gyms just can't give you what small gyms can. I have some physical restrictions and Benny works with me to ensure we are making gains but not so fast that I risk getting hurt. He's careful about form and reads the clients cues throughout the workout. We are in good hands.
Response from the owner: Thank you Kim and Robert! We are glad you’ve chosen us to help you both with your fitness goals! Look forward getting you both in your fitness goals!

This gym is about results. It is 100% personal 1 on 1 training. I was looking to get back in shape and improve my health. Guidance on eating, vitamins, when to exercise, with the one on one focus really helped me surpass what I thought was possible. I got “Gains”. Got Healthy, Lost fat. Gained strength and muscle. Great Gym and staff – trainers.
Response from the owner: Thank you Scott. It's a teamwork and thank you for choosing Ultima Fitness for your fitness goals.

Excellent gym and trainers. In just 8 weeks I’ve gotten stronger, leaner, and made many positive changes to my lifestyle. Love the family atmosphere, and for the first time ever I actually enjoy going to the gym. Trainers Benny and Pedro are very experienced and keep the workouts fresh and fun. They have the right balance of motivation and kindness to get you through your workout, and leave with a smile.Update: A year later my husband and I continue to be impressed with our personal trainer Pedro's expertise, personalized training sessions, and plan. During this past year it has been comforting to be at a gym that feels safe and is never crowded - we are often the only clients there during a session. We are pleased with the education, support, and plan that helps us live a much healthier life than before we joined. We look forward to our sessions each week, and enjoy being a member of the Ultima Fitness family.
Response from the owner: Thank you for the opportunity to let us work with you!We customize each and every workout to fit our clients goals and we continually modifie your training to continue with your progress including your nutrition.

This is a great personal training gym! All the trainers are extremely knowledgeable and lots of fun. The owner, Benny, will help you with meal plans and get you on a path for overall healthiness. They encourage coming to do cardio on days your not training which is big bonus. And...you'll feel like your part of a family as you get to know other members. Lots of us have been going for decade(s). Excellent for all ages and fitness levels. Love me some Ultima Fitness!

The best in town!I met Benny (the owner ) after my husband went on a search for a personal trainer that can fit both of our lifestyles . My husband is extremely high energy and needs someone who can handle him. I’m more mellow in comparison to my husband . What I liked about Benny is that he listened to both of our concerns /goals . I feel that with other trainers is always very cookie cutter . The trainer does the same workout with all clients .I’m a believer that your workout should be customized to the clients needs/wants and Benny truly does that . He is also extremely concern about health and making sure your mental / internal health comes first and I appreciate that .I recently worked out with his two other trainers Lana and Pedro and they are both very knowledgeable. They bring different techniques to the table and keep things fresh . I highly recommend this facility and the personal trainers . Look no further and come set your lifestyle goals with Benny and his crew , you won’t regret it !
Response from the owner: Thank you very much Nicole!We appreciate the opportunity to work with you and Andrew. Our focus in our facility goes beyond training.We focus on your overall health and lifestyle through nutrition, cardiovascular health, flexibility, core, and stamina. One does not work without the other. Emphasis on the weak part of your body so we can train the body as whole. This approach continues with your training as we make assessment every month so we can make minor adjustments on your diet and to make sure your on track. Health body, healthy mind is our approach.Thank you 🙏

I've been a regular client here for fifteen years. I can't say enough good about them. This gym is like Cheers - everyone knows your name. Many of the clients are long-term. This is a facility operated by several experienced trainers for their clients. You work out with a trainer and your program is customized for you. The emphasis is on cardiovascular fitness and muscle tone (at least my program is). I've seen these guys work with everyone from high school athletes to folks after accidents and operations. I encourage anyone thinking about to stop by and see for themselves.
Response from the owner: Thank you for giving us the opportunity to work with you.

I've had an excellent experience here. I've had multiple trainers over the years and Benny has by far been the best (as have the results in a relatively short time frame). These guys pay close attention to where you're starting from, what you need / what your goals are, and all of that across the spectrum (strength, conditioning, nutrition). So glad I didn't sign up at the massive gym down the street.
Response from the owner: Thank you for giving us the opportunity to help you reach your fitness goals.

Ultima Fitness is a neighborhood workout facility that offers personal training and a wide range of equipment to allow you to exercise all of your muscles and to gain cardiovascular fitness. I especially love working with Bennie who combines motivational and supportive encouragement with perfection; I saw changes in my fitness within 2-3 weeks of weekly sessions. Moreover, I never leave my personal training sessions feeling too sore as if I have worked too hard. Ultima offers a great facility for anyone who wants a neighborhood fitness experience.
Response from the owner: Karen - thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We value you and are happy to hear you enjoy our approach to fitness!

Excellent educated trainers that work with you at the level you're at. They motivate and encourage, changing up the exercises so you don't ever get bored. It's a small gym so you get to know the others who train there as well. No waiting for machines to free up. The best part is the accountability.
Response from the owner: Kelly - thank you for this review! We are always happy to encourage, guide, and keep you accountable. It is a pleasure training you and thank you for your loyalty!

Joining this gym is the best thing I have done for myself. The trainers are professional and attentive to your individual needs. The first time I came into the gym I had a “duck walk” because I was favoring a weak knee, they have been working to strengthen the muscles in the legs and there is notable improvement. When working with the trainer they make sure you are executing the proper technique so that you get the most out of your workout.Beyond the excellent facility and training the environment of the gym is special. The staff and other members are friendly and no matter when you go in you are greeted and made to feel welcome. It’s like having a second family.My experience at the gym makes a challenging day better and always improves my attitude.
Response from the owner: Thank you for being a part of our family, Kathy! We value the opportunity to train and support your health & wellness.

There is a reason Ultima Fitness has been awarded "The Best Gym In Plano"!!! This is a gym where they truly care about you and your fitness and nutritional needs. I have been training here for 7 years and always look forward to my workout. The trainers are very innovative in their training techniques, which keeps your workout interesting, challenging and fun! At 56 I can do things I never imagined I could do. Bennie, the owner takes the time to help you with a personalized training, cardio and diet plan. By sticking to his plan I lost 20 pounds and 10% body fat the first 6 weeks. I also love the small gym atmosphere, it's like a second home. I have made some wonderful friends at Ultima Fitness! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this gym. I would highly recommend Ultima Fitness to anyone! Come in and check it out. You will be glad you did.

Ultima Fitness has been key in helping me reach my personal fitness goals. The results achieved thus far in only the first 6 weeks have far exceeded my expectations. By combining the right mix of cardio, abs, weights and diet, I have already gone from 24% body fat to 16%, in only 6 weeks. I can’t wait to see the results of the next 10 weeks. The motivation provided by Benny and other trainers has helped me push my limits and achieve levels I would not have otherwise expected. Each morning I look forward to my workout.
Response from the owner: Incredible results. Thank you for choosing Ultima as your partner in health & fitness.

“I am 49 years old and I have been working out at Ultima Fitness in Plano for the last 7 years. When I first started, my cholesterol was high, my blood pressure was high and I couldn’t walk up a flight of stairs without being winded. With training and diet advice I am in the best shape of my life. I am stronger than I have ever been and my stamina is excellent. I do not have any health issues at all now. I feel like I am 25 again.

The club is not just a place to work out. You become part of the family. Everyone knows each other and it becomes a place you enjoy going to talk to friends and get the best workout in Texas. I even have my kids working out there with me. They are strong, fit and always do the best in school fitness tests.”

“I first started going to Ultima Fitness in May 2012. After 40 years of virtually no exercise I knew that I needed to do something.

About a month after starting to exercise it was time for my regular annual physical. That’s when I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. The doctor was very supportive when we discussed the diet and exercise approach to control diabetes.

I consulted with Benny. He gave me nutrition tips, advice, and guidance. I also followed a rather intense cardio and weight training regimen. When I returned to my doctor for my follow up visit I was 35 pounds lighter and my A1C numbers had improved to the acceptable range. My doctor was impressed with the progress and scheduled more follow up visits to confirm that I stayed on track. After a few months, my blood work numbers all came back in the normal range. All of this was without the use of any medication.

“Being a member at Ultimate Fitness has benefited me well beyond my expectations! The one-on-one personal training is a step above the regular big gyms. Most gyms personal training tends to let the customer dictate the workout. Ultimate Fitness personal trainers control the workout to get the maximum out of you. Nothing makes me feel better than to have my trainer push me to the limits of my workout, while keeping it fun.

Benny and his staff have a variety of training knowledge and skill-sets, so if you really want excellent personal training and don’t want to get lost in a big impersonal gym, I suggest you try Ultimate Fitness.”

“I have been a client at the Ultimate Fitness gym for over 8 years now and ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!!! Ultimate Fitness provides a private, small and intimate atmosphere for working out that I enjoy. Big gyms, with a lot of people and equipment, are overwhelming for me. Ultimate Fitness is the perfect size. With just a few trainers and a few clients at one time, you know that you are priority to them. It has that family style feel where everyone knows each other … it feels like home the minute you walk through the door.

The trainers are AMAZING!!! They all have their own unique way of training which makes for an awesome variety of workouts. They train to get the best out of you each and every session. Whenever I need to work on a particular set of muscles (like getting ready for swimsuit season) they know exactly what to do to get me in shape.

They are EXCELLENT with setting me up on a healthy nutrition plan and following through with me to make sure I’m on track and not slacking.

“For several years my husband had been experiencing pain in his back and hip. Since it was hereditary, we went to doctors for pain management. The pain never went away. Then we happened upon Ultima Fitness one day and decided to stop in to inquire about their personal training. Everything changed for us! Thanks to Benny’s personalized training program, my husband no longer needs any type of medication for back and hip pain and actually has more strength than ever before. The customized workouts are a total package specifically designed to strengthen your body for the long term with information on the importance and need for good nutrition. Today, keeping fit is more important than ever – if you desire an independent life style.” ~ Johnnie and Gloria
