I began training with Percell Dugger July 2015 and from day one he made it clear he was committed to my fitness success – he was almost cocky about it. In 12 sessions, I have lost 18 lbs. My original goal was to improve my balance, due to a condition that I have, and of course lose weight. But what I’ve gotten in these past 12 sessions has been priceless. The other day I was working out with an 18 lbs medicine ball. I couldn’t believe the coincidence – that’s exactly how much weight I had lost in basically 8 weeks. Percell is a great motivator who executes–period.
At first I was terrified (have you seen Percell’s workouts on Instagram?! – he’s a beast!), but he’s also so cool and flexible. He motivates me to win! I curse him out during every session, but it’s all LOVE. He’s pushing me out of my comfort zone because he knows I can do it, even when I don’t think I can. At the end of the day that’s what you want in a trainer – someone that is not going to judge you, no matter how much you weigh, how slow you are, how much you hate running, or how hung-over you feel after a late night – he’s still going to push you!
Every session is new, vibrant and stimulating. Also, he answers all of my questions with such patience and knowledge. I need that. Percell is an excellent trainer – he’s super patient and he shows up to each session READY TO WORK. I encourage anyone looking to get their sh*t together, join the #GOODWRK™ bandwagon – it will be one of the best investments you make.
I have been a competitive athlete all my life and I've had dozens of coaches & trainers. Percell knew the right workouts I needed to help me progress and transition from a Lacrosse player in college to a member of the U.S National Team in my sport. He curated a unique fitness plan that maximized my efforts and didn't waste my time.

"I know this is going to sound like hyperbole and good golly it would be amazing if I was gifted in mula for the good words I'm about to spew, so let me just preface my praise for Percell by saying this all comes from the heart. I've worked with a trainer in the past, but had to deal with negative vibes, lack of positive reaffirmation and some suspect assisted "stretches." Naturally, Percell is one of the most personable, patient, adaptable and health-happy human beings I've ever met in my life. Training with him is fun and effective as hell! He's extremely motivating when it comes to both fitness and food, plus he's a great guy for folks who can't stand monotony like me. I would recommend him to anyone".
"Sooo I don't know about all you other guys but i'm over the whole video vixen/bartender/thot personal trainer fusion taking place on social media. Percell is legit. He knows his stuff, and was always willing to explain why the workouts we were doing were important, instead of taking the traditional "do what I say b/c i'm the trainer" approach. Above all things, I appreciated him being honest with me when I needed to focus. He was never disrespectful, but the timing of his stern approach was impeccable. Great trainer, but he's an even better dude".
The best thing about Percell is that he is genuinely passionate about his work. He’s not using training to pay the bills while he works on his acting career. He really loves what he does, training and helping clients reach their goals no matter what they are, and that sincerely and knowledge comes through in workout sessions and his writing. I’ve made more progress training with him than with any other trainer I’ve worked with and definitely more than years trying to hack it on my own.
"I was referred to Percell by my girl, Tracy. At first I doubted his vibe because he seemed too cool about things. His confidence rubbed me the wrong way initially, whatever. After our first convo, I could tell what I initially perceived as arrogance, was instead a man who was at peace with himself and extremely knowledgable in his trade. Percell the trainer and person both have a very strong presence, but its subtle, and at the same time comforting. As soon as my first session ended, I knew why Tracy spoke so highly of him. He never once made me feel uncomfortable, or insecure. His positive approach and upbeat attitude make for a great workout, even when I don't feel like it. Now, I love P like a brother! He embodies everything that a great personal trainer/coach should be. He inspires me to push myself further than I thought I was capable of. For that, I am forever grateful. Thank you P! You're the man! Love you, playa".
