I've been working in the ABA field for over 5 years and love fitness. Fitness has been such a positive outlet in my life whether is... for physical health but also for my mental health. It wasn't until the pandemic hit that it dawned upon to merge my passion of ABA and sharing my love of fitness. I googled personal training and that is where I found Special Strong. From day 1 I was hooked-I read the curriculum and the requirements to obtain my certification and what sealed the deal for me was when I got a text message from the owner/founder himself Daniel-making himself available to answer any questions I had (mind you on a saturday). I loved how Special Strong was started and love seeing the clients on IG and their successes and how much fitness has helped them. The modules are easy to follow and broken down for you to understand and to apply with potential clients. I can't to take my test for my certifications and to become of the Special Strong Family.read more

I have known Heather for at least 3 years and she is a very loving person. Heather puts her heart into the hurting and this is her... gift from God! When I heard about Special Strong and what they can do I was so excited that Heather is working with such an amazing place. If you have a special needs person in your life, you know it is very difficult to be alone with your spouse/family. One of the parents always needs to be with them. Just to have a community with people that really cares and supports you is so important. Bent Tree is one of the few churches that had a ministry class so the parents could worship together. Daniel goes to the Bent Tree church and he is using his gift to do so much more! Special Strong with Heather and the rest of team are not just helping the parents and family, they are teaching exercise, relating and understanding the needs to each one of your loved ones! I have read a lot of the reviews and how the parents are just so blessed with what has changed with their special one.read more

Daniel, the owner of Special Strong, is really great. I know that I would never have achieved the level of fitness and wellness if not... for the personal attention given in my training sessions. During our sessions, Daniel was always very encouraging and had a vast knowledge of his profession. I definitely recommend Daniel to anyone looking for great quality personal training. While training with Daniel, he ensured that my technique was always correct to avoid any injuries. He was extremely reliable and punctual – always set up and ready to start training ahead of time, with an exercise routine planned. He was always creative and focused on helping me achieve my goals and made every session challenging and somehow fun, so much so, I actually looked forward to my workouts.read more

Special strong is truly amazing! It warms my heart to see what God is doing through this fitness ministry. I have known Daniel for... many years. I have watched him grow in his walk with the Lord. God has blessed him with so many gifts. He has so much compassion for those who are physically challenged. His impact on the people he works with and trains is immeasurable. I love watching the videos and seeing pictures of all the progress his clients are making. There is always an encouraging word, praise for an accomplishment, and support from all those who support special strong. When I think of Daniel and all he’s doing with special strong I think of the scripture Matthew 25:23. I think of God smiling down from heaven saying “ well done good and faithful servant.” I am honored and blessed to support this ministry and will continue to pray for Daniel and his team.read more

Daniel & I became acquainted in April of 2014 when he became my Personal Trainer. He is an excellent trainer and very focused on... helping you reach your goals& understand what its going to take on your side to achieve them.I would often arrive early and see Daniel with his clients that had different motor skill challenges. Daniel has a passion for helping those individuals and truly has the heart for it.He and I had many conversations about it, prayed about it & it was what God had put into his heart and he followed that calling.I’ve seen him and his team at Special Strong devote their time, energy & passion/love for what they do. They’ve had progress with individuals that their doctors didn’t believe was possible!I know this is long winded but if you’ve made it this far, think of how much further you and your family will make it working with Special Strong!I hope this helps, if you have any questions or comments that I can help with please feel free to ask!Thanks,Eric Haleread more

Daniel Stein is truly a humble trainer who lives to help others. His patience and willingness to listen to your problems, concerns,... and goals really puts you at ease when dealing with the stresses of needing a trainer. He is very knowledgeable in the world of health and has great verbal skills when explaining the ins and outs of the process to make sure you are able to comprehend the information.I have never had Daniel as a trainer myself, but I have seen him work, the amount of time he puts into his clients, and his eagerness to be a helping hand.

I have no one in my life that has needed the services that Special Strong offers but I can tell you about a man who has had a vision... and a heart to help any and all that are wanting to stay fit and strong physically for as long as I can remember. Daniel has such amazing integrity to serve the Lord with everything in him ever since I have known him and his passion for fitness is driven by his desire to please God by taking care of his own body and share that knowledge with anyone willing to listen. A lot of businesses will place a Christian symbol with a cross or a fish on their sign post to let people know what they stand for but Daniel carries those symbols deep inside of his heart. He is the real deal and is proving how much he loves God’s children by helping many of those who are physically challenged that most would turn their backs on. It is a huge task that God continues to bless in many many ways. So not only is this a review to share what an amazing business this is but even more so it is an appeal to all who read this to take the time to pray for this beautiful ministry called Speical Strong.read more

Her schedule... accommodates mine, she pushes your reach your potential by encouraging you, she’ll even do the exercise with you to make sure your successful. She’s diligent in explaining what each exercise does, how it benefits you, and how long to do each one. I mean i could go on and on and on, but overall when she assesses your needs she tailors the workout accordingly. Within the first week I noticed a difference. I’m thankful to have her in my corner!!!read more

When I began working out with Lee Seale I was barely able to walk across a parking lot without being winded and my strength level was... poor. I'm able to participate in charity walks and my strength levels are now on par with my high-school days. While under his direction, I was able to rehab a bad shoulder and knee. I no longer have a sore shoulder and I walk just fine. Mr. Seale knows how to encourage you beyond what you normally think you could accomplish. It might seem like a simple thing to someone else but to be able to lift my arm above my head now without pain is like a minor miracle.read more

This company is amazing! They set up a specialized bootcamp on our campus to serve our students - all adults on the autism spectrum... (nonPareil Institute in Plano). The trainer, Akilah, has a perfect combination of physical fitness training knowledge and ability to handle individuals with any set of challenges. And she knows how to make a workout FUN - her campers are always wearing a smile! Thanks to the founders Daniel & Trinity for making this experience possible at nonPareil.read more

I work at one of the locations where Daniel works and have seen first hand how he genuinely cares for his clients and it is reflected... in how they respond and cooperate. I have seen the results and the progress his clients have made. I love how excited they are when they arrive for their sessions! (It is a contagious excitement!) Not only does he modify every workout for each client, but he remembers the little details that show his love for what them and what he does. Not everyone is able to work with the Special Needs Community, Daniel and the Staff at Special Strong have that gift.read more

My training experience with Daniel Stein of Special strong has been 2nd to None, and I don't say that lightly. I was born with Ehlers... Danlos Syndrome, a genetic connective tissue disorder that causes hypermobility & dislocation of joints and wide spread pain. No other trainer, nor physics therapist for that matter, has been able to properly modify exercises to help me strengthen my body without injuring myself more. I'm incredible thankful that God put Daniel & Trinity in my life, and I highly recommend them and the Special Strong organization to anyone who thinks they are too sick or too disabled to exercise.read more

Testimonials

Our Clients Love It

My child loves the group class. He mostly enjoys getting out of the house-the social aspect of working, being around others like him. It is a good mix of balance, cardio, and strength. Surprisingly, my child works hard and doesn't even whine when things challenge him. I'm very satisfied with the patient, knowledgeable trainers and challenging program.

Christie J. (Erin)

Since starting Special Strong in 2016, my son, Robert, has fewer meltdowns and has developed more endurance for physical activity. Robert needed an outlet to manage his meltdowns and help with flexibility. He can now endure over an hour of physical activity and started playing multiple sports! Robert's teachers have told us how much improvement they have seen in his behavior and he is learning to listen and follow directions without my having to be there to ensure that he listens to his instructor. I also got to speak with a nutritionist through this program. She helped Robert to develop better-eating habits which resulted in losing over twenty pounds! I am so grateful for Special Strong and everything they have done with my family.

Jennifer H. (Robert)

Over the past two years, my son was diagnosed with several medical conditions. He lost so much physically, spiritually, and emotionally. As he began to heal, I knew more could be accomplished. I found a personal trainer and a nutritionist through Special Strong. They have brought life back into my son. Thank you, Special Strong, for giving me my son back.
