Sam Lindsey – Owner of STL Fitness and Body Mechanx

My name is Sam Lindsey and I am the owner of STL Fitness and Body MechanX; “where fitness is a way of life.” This means that when performing any physical activity some facet of what you do when you are exercising you will use in your everyday life.  I have worked in the fitness industry more than forty years and I have seen many changes that have brought changes to my approach to the way I consult with potential clients as well as my present clients.

I am a native Floridian and Boynton resident. My fitness background is I am certified as a Personal Fitness Trainer with International Sport Sciences Association (ISSA). Under this umbrella I am certified in Fitness Nutrition, Fitness Therapy and Strength and Conditioning. I am also working on my next fitness certification with the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM).

I have and will train with people who want to be able to perform daily activities with ease and confidence. I work with the athlete, bodybuilders including choreographing and teaching posing technique, women’s fitness contest choreography, seniors etc. I also will give nutrition guidance and show you how you can live a healthier lifestyle and enjoy your food selection.  I will evaluate your fitness level and together we will work out a program designed for you. With any fitness training you will work with flexibility, cardio, balance and stability and much more. I will say that there is no one fitness program that works for everybody which is why I take all of my perspective clients through a health history questionnaire before we start designing your fitness program.

So feel free to contact me so we can work out a specially designed program for you today! You won’t be disappointed.

Grateful & Happy

I was grateful and happy to have had Sam as a trainer. He had patience and always took the time to explain the machines and how to do the exercise properly with good form. With me he also gave me tips with my nutrition. He was easy and comfortable to work with. I’d definitely recommend him.

Great personal trainer

What makes a great personal trainer? I think it is someone like Sam Lindsey who taught me that engaging your core is one of the most important things you can work on before working with weights or doing cardio. Sam has the best workout routines. Never, ever the same. Never, ever boring.

I started working with Sam when I was in my 60’s so I can personally state it is never too late to start a workout program. Consistency is the key. Sam has been my trainer for over 12 years and I never walked out of a training session with him thinking it was a waste of time.

I highly recommend Sam whether you hire him once a week or once a day, you will stand straighter, walk further, have more stamina and just feel and look better than you did.
