Here’s What Our Members Have to Say about Burning Fitness Personal Training…

“The best place in Buffalo to go to if you’re just starting or continuing your fitness journey.

I’ve only been going for a couple months and I’m already noticing positive changes physically, and most importantly mentally.

Steve and Trey are extremely good at what they do, and go to great lengths to work with you and motivate you.”

“I’ve been going here for about 6 months and I can definitely see a difference in my strength and endurance. Steve and Tre are very knowledgeable and fun to work with.

I love how the program switches up so the workouts don’t become stale.”

— Lynn A.

“I joined Burning Fitness in November 2022 having never set foot in a gym before and living a completely sedentary lifestyle.

I absolutely love the supportive, encouraging, nonjudgmental atmosphere here as well as the small group sizes.

Steve and Tre have both been wonderful about explaining (and often reexplaining) exercises to me, including the “why” behind them. The facility is top-notch and centrally located. Highly recommend!”

“So excited to have joined Buffalo’s hottest new gym!

Steve Berning, the owner, has been my personal trainer for some time. He truly cares about all of his clients; achieving our fitness goals are as important to him as they are to us. And, I’ve seen some fantastic results under his guidance and coaching. 💪

The space is 🔥too. It has an urban look and feel, has all the equipment I need, and provides for enough space to do the work with a healthy distance from other members. It’s also immaculately clean with a spa-like locker room. Check it out!”

Within the first two weeks of working with Steve, he began adapting the program to push me and develop me. He responded to my desire to pushed, driving me towards my best self.

“I have been training with Steve for 6 months now, and the results have been incredible! 🔥🔥 Before training with Burning Fitness, I used to struggle with motivation and energy — I found it so hard to get TO the gym for my workouts and then to keep up DURING my workouts. But Steve’s contagious energy and drive helps me push myself everyday, and leaves me feeling GREAT about my workout.

I HIGHLY recommend Burning Fitness Personal Training. Steve is the top of his field — and by far the best trainer in Buffalo.

“My wife and I have been going to Burning Fitness for a little over a year. Steve, the owner is professional, extremely knowledgeable, accommodating, helpful, attentive, and friendly. Trayvon is also a great trainer at Burning Fitness, also knowledgeable, and super friendly. We are both just retired and this experience has been positive and we feel so much better, our endurance and strength has improved and the daily aches and pains I was experiencing have vanished. I recommend Burning Fitness to anyone interested in improving their overall health and wellbeing. Kudos !!!!”

— David C.


“We have had many “starts and stops” over the last few years in our quest for better health and weight loss. Together we decided to make an appointment end of February 2023, as our annual January New Year resolution was not working very well one month in to 2023. We made a commitment to twice a week to begin in March.

Our first three months were not easy, but with encouragement from our trainer Steve and Trevon some weekends, we were able to experience noticeable results. Balance, Flexibility, Strength and Nutrition have been reintroduced in to our daily routine, as a lifestyle, not “diet and exercise.”

Our second three months have given us more confidence, greatly improved health reports from our Doctor as we ramped it up, committing three times a week.

If you are looking for results with a trainer who will custom build a program for you, Burning Fitness should be a top consideration!

Did we mention we are female 66 and male 61?
This gym is for all ages and stages!!! Go for it!”

— Cheryl C.


“This has been the best experience I have had working out, I look forward to going and I feel so motivated. Both Tre and Steve are great, and anyone who is looking for motivating trainers absolutely look into burning fitness!!”
