What I can do for You?

I will push you, motivate you and support you to elevate your fitness routine and exceed your personal expectations. You won’t believe the level of results you can achieve with me until you experience the power of exceptional personal training for yourself.

I hold one of the industries best certifications and years of real-world fitness training experience.

I will function as your colleague, coach and teacher as I help you achieve optimal health and fitness through a state-of-the-art complete fitness program that includes the following elements.


I will identify your specific fitness needs and create a plan for you to efficiently and effectively achieve your desired results.

Customized Planning

My customized training plans are tailored to meet your specific goals, while maximizing results and minimizing injuries.


As your coach, i ensure that you execute each exercise properly to maximize results and minimize injury. I also ensure that you do the right amount of each exercise — too little won’t bring about change, and too much will slow down your rate of improvement.


I take pride in keeping up to speed on the latest science and technology information associated with health, exercise science and nutrition.

Results Measurement

Every 4-12  weeks (depending on your program), I provide a comprehensive progress report that shows your individual progress relative to your specific health and fitness goals. During your workout sessions, I not only give you exercise-specific direction, but also explain the reasons behind my methods so you’ll know exactly what we’re doing and why.


Most importantly, I demand accountability. To bring real change, you need a personal fitness coach who is directly responsible for your success in the program. I demand accountability — not unkindly, but firmly — because it is necessary for success. Success is my business and i take achieving your health and fitness goals seriously. I plan and organize your workouts so that all you need to do is come into the studio ready to work.

Meal Plan


Health not only encompasses the foods that we eat, but also how we are feeling physically, mentally, and emotionally. One of the key components to improving health and eating habits is proper planning. When healthy, nutrient-dense meals and snacks are planned out ahead of time, you can enjoy the rest of your week knowing that you’ll be fueling your body well. Meal planning is an easy, cost-effective process that will save time and improve your nutrition. The Lionlamb Personal Training Meal Plan guides you in what foods to eat and how often to eat based on your specific dietary needs. These meal plans make it easy to shop, prepare, and enjoy each day’s meals while still eating healthily. These weekly meal plans include:

  • Meals planning for 7 days
  • Recipes for healthy meals
  • Nutritional information for each meal
  • Shopping lists

Without planning, your food choices throughout the day may not be the most nutritious. Break the fast food habit, and stop settling for the same boring meals each night. Let me help you plan and enjoy affordable and nutritious meals!

Get A Truly Personal Experience at Lionlamb Personal Training Studio

Our Personal Training Studio in Potsdam,NY is just that, Personal. A quiet and private space dedicated to you and your personal goals.

Hugely popular all over the world, one of the biggest advantages a studio has over a gym is that they are free from crowds and clutter, offering a spacious, clean and quiet environment where you can focus on your training and your goals. Better yet, you have your very own personal trainer at your disposal, dedicated to monitoring and motivating you every step of the way towards you achieving your full potential.

Imagine not having to scramble for exercise equipment or working out without being concerned about what others are thinking?

A Personal Training Studio offers you a relaxing and quiet space to train in, without people disrupting your routine. As this may be the only time in your busy day that you get a real chance to focus on yourself and your goals, it's great to have an environment that allows you to 'zone out', particularly if you lead a hectic lifestyle or have a stressful job.

Many people feel uncomfortable in big mainstream gym’s as they feel they are constantly being watched, while ironically they can’t get attention from the people they need help from. Without having someone at hand to ensure you are doing what you say you will and are comfortable with your program, you are less likely to get the results you are after. Statistics show one of the main causes for people dropping out of gyms is that they lose focus, confidence or direction, leading to lack of adherance and attendance. It seems unfair that your weekly payments are still being drained from your account, when you are not using the facility you joined. The only result you get in this case, is alot of money spent with little or nothing to show for it.

At a Personal Training Studio you only pay for each time you enter the studio, not for those weeks where you are on family holidays or didn’t have time to train because of other commitments. Having a personal trainer to take you through your workouts every time you come into the studio means you have constant professional guidance, reducing the risk of injury and the time it takes you to attain the results you are after.Every time you come into the studio you are training with your trainer and every program is tailored to suit your lifestyle and your goals.

When you are in our studio, it is all about you! We provide you with a hassle and stress free experience. Contact us today so that you can experience the difference yourself.



I am a 46 year old women and I have been a yo-yo dieter for years. I've taken pills, went on starvations, anything to loose weight fast. I made a decision in August of 2015 to get in the best shape I've ever been in. I wanted to be fit for once in my life. I started dieting and exercising. I started to train at Lionlamb Personal Training with Durek in March of 2016. Durek has been teaching me nutrition, how to eat better and lose weight.  He's also taught me a lot about fitness. He encourages me and pushes me to do the best I can. He holds me accountable for exactly what I need to do to reach my goal. I can't believe how much muscle I have put on in such a short amount of time. I'm watching my body transform into somthing I never thought possible. I highly recommend Lionlamb Personal Training.

Hi, My name is Tracy Connally and I am 43 years old. In 2014, I was discouraged about gaining some extra weight and not being able to lose the extra fat. I felt that I could not make any positive changes on my own concerning my weight. I met Durek and He encouraged me and helped me to realize that weight loss is possible at any age with dedication and consistency.Durek, also taught me about clean eating while training and how they go hand in hand. I recommend lionlamb personal training to help you with your journey to a better you. Having someone to encourage you helps tremendously to pursue your goals.
God Bless You

I started working out with Durek at Lion Lamb PT in July 2016, at that time I was an insulin dependant type 2 diabetic.  I was unhappy with my body and my health. I was scared to walk through doors, scared of being judged and scared I wouldn't be able to do what he asked of me...but was the best decision ever!  Durek welcomed me with a smile and made me feel comfortable within minutes.  I signed up for 3 days a week, and it was the hardest thing I have ever done, but Durek stayed by my side giving me all the advice and encouragement I needed! September 9, 2016 is a day I won't easily forget, it's the day my doctor took me off the insulin! Durek is committed to my health more then I am some days! It's a great environment to be in and Durek is a great trainer!

I have been working with owner/trainer, Durek, at LionLamb Personal Training in Potsdam, NY. I know it has been less than a month but I already feel that my shoulder and neck are getting stronger. The pain I felt in my right lower back/hip/knee has almost completely disappeared. I feel stronger, healthier (and just plain more endorphin filled)!

Durek is excellent at assessing the issues someone is having and adjusting training and equipment to target those muscles anyway. He really listens, thinks things through and does not look at an age-challenged person as hopeless or a waste of time. He has a very positive attitude and also really knows his stuff! He is the first trainer that I have worked with that is not pushing me beyond what my injuries allow, but IS pushing me within my abilities at this time...and, because of is working! I highly, highly recommend this training center.

-Michele Lapointe

January of 2015 I set out on my fitness journey. I was nearing 200lbs at 5 foot 1, and scared of my reflection in the mirror. I was semi successful on my own and lost 50lbs but was never able to achieve the level of fitness and physique that I wanted. Fast forward to January 2018, I had put 30lbs back on but wanted to look my absolute best in October for my wedding. At the end of April I began working out with Durek. I began to see drastic results within weeks. I have always had an interest in working out but I would always end up injuring myself or not pushing myself. I wanted more than anything to be able to look back on my wedding day and not pick myself apart. Durek pushed me to achieve things I never could have dreamed of achieving. He never let me give up and always reminded me of the goal I had set out to reach. Without him I can honestly say I would not be in the shape I am now. Not only was I dedicated to working out but he was dedicated to pushing me. With my wedding only a week away I can say I am 100% happy with the progress I made and I owe it all to Durek! I would have never been able to do this on my own. I would have given up long ago! 

-Brianna Miller 

Being trained by Durek has changed my life forever! He has such a deep understanding of the anatomy of the body and uses it to focus workouts on exactly what you need! I have been going to him twice a week for 5 months and with his exercises and the nutrition advice he gave me, I was able to lose 60 pounds! I suggest him to everyone I know and to anyone looking to change their lives. I am beyond grateful that I went to Durek and that he changed my life, you can change yours too if you choose to go to him as well!!!
