I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for superb and highly professional personal training that you have given me these last eight months.
As you know, when I first started, I had not worked out before. At age 39, it was a completely new experience, going from unhealthy to healthy, a weakling to well-built. I am happy to tell you that the improvements in my physique have been dramatic and much more than I expected for sucha a short period of time. You are the best in town in the science of personal training and I say that without qualifiacation. As a physician, I appreciate somebody who knows what they do and is an expert at it and you certianly fit that bill in the area of body building.
In any event, I just wanted to thank you for your help and to let you know that I will not hesitate to refer you to any of my friends who need personal training.
Emma Iyalla, Supervisor, Hillside Community Center
A mere thank you does not express how we really feel about all the wonderful things you have done for us at the Hillside Community Center.
You put a smile on the faces of the 42 children, who received gift certificates as Christmas presents to shop at Target Storesl. That was the only Christmas present most of these children received.
Thanks to you, Hillside Community Center is $2,400 richer, to enhance our varied programs for the children.
And the 22-station professional standard weight room equipment you are responsible for at the Center is going to benefit the whole community. Youth, young adults, and senior citizens, are all excited about it, and are ready to start working out.
Thank you Josh, you are one in a million, and we are glad to have you as a friend.
Richard Zavala, Director Parks and Community Services Department

I am a teacher in Fort Worth and I watch Channel 11 early morning news as I prepare for work each day. In November, 1996 and again in March, 1997 I was watching your program when Josh Stroud, a Certified Personal Trainer and Pro Body Builder, was one of your guests. For a brief amount of time he talked to the listening audience about balancing, strengthening and toning our bodies. he also demonstrated The Bodymaker.
In November, when I first saw Josh I had every intention of calling to make an appointment, but procrastinated instead. However, in March, when I had the opportunity to see im on your channel once again, I called immediately and made an appointment to meet with him at his gym for an evaluation. I found Mr Stroud to be very personable, professional and extremely knowledgeable about general health, fitness, and personalized training. I became one of his clients and have lost over 20 pounds. I look and feel iek a different person. Before I became on of Josh Stroud's clients, exercise was something I dreaded and just simply avoided. Now it is fun and I actually look forward to working out. I have also learned more about nutrition and folow a nutrition plan that has also proven beneficial in my weight loss plan.
Thank you for having had Josh Stroud on your show. I am grateful for the time Josh Stroud was alloted on your show, but by the time he aired (between 7 and 7:30am), most of the work force had probably already left for work. I think icreased exposure to the public would certainly encourage and help more people who are overweight and reluctant to do something about it. We are regularly hearing about the failing health and the numbers of overweight people in this country, fad diets etc. I would like to see more time allotted to programs such a Josh Stroud's.
I just wanted to say thank you so much! You completely changed my body. Before coming to you I coud do maybe two push-ups and now I can do at least ten sets of ten without feeling weak or in pain. My whole body looks different and the whole time I was training with you, you encouraged me to do my best and improve. Country Day School was blessed to have you this summer. All the athleets that came owe you so much because you taught us so much. You made me believe that I could reach my goals and I did. Thank you so much Josh.
