William customizes each workout so I get the most out of each training session. All in all, I've recommended William to several friends, and all of them have seen the results. It is because of William’s professionalism, dedication, and customized programs that I have been a long-time customer.

My training relationship with William Ortiz began in the beginning of 2001. My wife gave me a Christmas gift of a personal trainer as I was no longer my college weight of 185-200 lbs. I had ballooned to 260 lbs with the help of working desk jobs and studying my way through law school. Since I am 6’2”, I had basically mastered the art of hiding my weight gain. William and I hit it off immediately as I lost 50 lbs in seven months as we ran mini races, worked out about 5 days a week and basically made working out into a way of life for me. William taught me about eating better and caring about what you looked like. Eight years into our relationship, my weight has been up and down but I am exactly where I need to be to continue to work hard at it with the help of Fitness Blueprint.
In the last couple of years, my career as a baseball sports agent has taken off. William along with Fitness Blueprint has trained several of my athletes from the minor to major leagues. He has helped them immensely to lose and maintain weight, get stronger and faster and also develop a sense of pride in their appearance. Fitness Blueprint is on the verge of becoming a major player in the field of athlete training.

I hired William Ortiz (Fitness Blueprint) in November 2008 with the goal of dropping my body-fat percentage from 22 to17% which is the ideal weight for a 1st baseman /Designated Hitter. I needed to prepare my body and mind for spring training 2009. The program was designed for 4 weeks and included around the clock nutrition and power training. Every day we ran 3 to 8 miles through the mountains in Puerto Rico, followed by intense power training and plyometrics in the gym. The 4 weeks were definitely hard and intense but the bottom line is that William delivered the results that I required. I dropped 15lbs of solid body-fat and my body-fat percentage now sits at 17%. The nutrition was customized according to my activity level since I was still playing winter ball during the program. I am extremely happy with the results that William provided. My performance has increase on the field and I am overall a stronger player. I recommend William Ortiz for any athlete looking to improve their game or any person that seeks a fitness specialist.

As an inactive person weighing 236 pounds, I was lost and did not even know where to start on losing weight. I decided to get personal training to help guide me and was lucky enough to find William. William showed me how to eat healthy, do the right exercises that will fit my goals to lose weight, he knows when to really push and motivate me, something no one has ever done before.
William gave me the path to success with my own customized workout program and following it turned out to be the best decision of my life. Now, 24 weeks later, weighing 196 pounds, my life has drastically improved. I run, train and wear clothes I never thought I could ever fit and look good in. I never thought life could ever be this good. William Ortiz showed me what I’m really made of and what I could accomplish. William is a specialist when it comes to the science of exercise, nutrition and motivation. He just knows what it takes to get the results. He’s always focus and aware of what the body can and cannot do.
I began training with William a year ago; I was 15 pounds overweight, had little muscle mass and cardio endurance and my body-fat was 34%! On a referral from a friend, I met with William for a complimentary session and was very impressed with his level of knowledge, passion, kindness and commitment. He doesn't just push a generic program on his clients and sit back on the sidelines while you work out. He specifically tailors each program to the individual to yield the greatest results. He cares about getting you both physically and mentally healthy and strong. I've had a knee injury for most of my life which has made working out incredibly tedious, boring and difficult. William makes working out challenging, engaging and fun! He has taught me discipline, patience and commitment. I'm stronger, more confident and the healthiest I've been in years.

"Training with William was great! Going to the gym was never really all that exciting for me but Fitness Blueprint's variety of exercises in combination with the boxing made the once a week sessions a lot of fun and I saw my fitness level improve dramatically. I also really appreciated that William was able to accommodate my hectic and changing schedule. Thank you William!"---Stanley Hum, MD
