When I first met Frank and Joe I was not very happy to see them. I knew I would be put through pain and doing something I did not want to do, exercise. But after a month or so of working with them, I had a change in heart , I decided that if I am going to have to show up and workout I should take this serious and not waste my time or theirs. The only way this was going to work is if I wanted it to put forth the effort. I told Frank and Joe that I was ready for this change and they were there with me every step of the way providing support. Unlike any other trainer they truly care about their clients. When their clients succeeds then they succeed, if their client fails then they fail. So, they put forth all of their effort into helping me change my way of life. With their help and expertise they have changed my way of life. Frank and Joe placed me on a diet plan that changed my life for the better. It changed my eating habits were I would choose healthier options and moderation. Then they changed my workout schedule. So instead of just working with them 3 days a week, I began to workout 7 days a week. 6 days of lifting or a circuit with cardio and then the 7th day of just cardio. They taught me an important life lesson from working out, I learned to be more disciplined in my way of life. Because of their effort, support, and encouragement, I have lost over a hundred pounds. I began at 355 and I am down to 229. I plan on continuing to lose weight with the support of Sentinel Performance. Dieting and exercise now has become a way of life for me.
Brinn Clutter (Junior Olympian Downhill Skier) February 19 - 22, 2014 - I am so pleased to announce that I made the Central / Rocky Division Junior Olympic Team! Thanks so much to God, my family, coaches, trainers, friends, and teachers; I wouldn't have made it without you!
April 2015 – I am excited to let everyone know that I once again made the Central / Rocky USSA Junior Olympic Team! Without a doubt, this year’s achievement would not have been possible without God, my family, private coach, trainers, friends, and teachers!
As most of you know, I have been training with Frank and Joe for over two years now, and Sentinel Performance has definitely been the key to my success. After my improvement and successful 2013-2014 season, I was determined to make additional gains this season; so Frank and Joe upped the ante last spring and put me to work. Last year I qualified for the Junior Olympic team in the top 25%, but I was determined to improve. With their help I was able to improve my ranking again by another 11 slots and medaled in slalom! I entered this season with more strength and power than I have ever had and anticipated great things. However, not everything went as smoothly as planned. My season this year was plagued with problems from never-ending equipment issues and faulty race boots to absentee coaches. For a significant number of my races, I stood barefoot in the snow until my feet went numb so that I could endure the pain of ill-fitting race boots and critiqued myself since no coach was available. Consequently, it is evident that my success was due solely to the strength and power that I had gained through training with Frank and Joe. Without the improvements I had made in the off-season using their purposefully designed program, this year most likely would have had a very different outcome. They were the key, and I could not have done it without them! I have already started post-season training and am ready to dive into my summer program knowing full well the importance of doing exactly what Frank and Joe ask of me and working as hard as they need me to. Their expertise has been proven once again, and I am extremely grateful they are in my corner.
Having worked with Frank and Joe for the past couple of years, I am more pleased than ever as I continue to watch their wisdom and purposeful design play out on the race hill with my daughter, Brinn. As you may have read in Brinn’s up-date, this past ski season was a challenging one for her. Nevertheless, it was successful for the sole reason of the time that she had invested with Frank and Joe. Daily in the off-season she was dedicated to pursue what they asked of her without question. Their personally designed program inspired a purpose in her to which she was fully committed. The gains that she made with them are what carried her through this season. As an exercise physiologist, I trust my daughter’s training to no one else; they are simply the best.

"I would consider myself a pretty active person. I enjoyed spinning/biking, rollerblading, pilates and weight lifting classes. But after having my second child, gaining a total of 80 lbs., with both pregnancies, and almost 2 yrs. later, I could not lose those last 15 lbs. of baby weight. I was spinning at least 3 times a week and lifting weights but was getting frustrated when I wasn’t seeing results. I was introduced to Sentinel last fall and originally didn’t except to lose any weight. I was only looking for a new challenge and basically to tone up. What Frank and Joe offered was different than any other gym I had been to. They pushed me beyond what I thought I was capable of doing. They have a different approach overall and the education to back it up. After a couple months I noticed more definition in my arms, the weight started coming off, and I went from 22% to 14.5% body fat. I couldn’t be more thrilled with my results!"
To anyone looking for an amazing fitness trainer and/or competition coach: " My experience training with Sentinel Performance has been nothing shy of amazing. Training with Frank Cosenza, specifically, has always been a special treat. He makes me feel comfortable and confident in the gym at all times. That is definitely huge selling point for me, especially being a female about to lift some heavy weights. He is also flexible, in that he took my schedule and worked with it every single day. He tailored my workout programs and meal plans to my body so that I was able to respond appropriately. Frank and the trainers of Sentinel Performance truly care about their clients and their results. We took several progress pictures, body measurements, and maxed out twice to see how I had been progressing through the program. I trained with Frank from the begining of July until the end of October and saw some outstounding results for sure! The knowledge and expertise these trainers have in this field is like none other. Frank was able to successfully train me for my first ever bikini competition where I took 4th place in two divisions! There were times where I felt like I couldn't do it anymore, especially when my Aunt passed away during my months of training. But Frank was there to build me up and encourage me to keep pushing. He is so dedicated to his work and only wants the best for his clients. If anyone is thinking about training with Sentinel Performance I would strongly reccommend giving them a try. And if anyone is looking to compete, I definitely suggest training with these guys!"
