What Clients Say

We really enjoy training with Geof. He is genuinely invested in our success, which extends beyond just working in the gym. His gentle but firm encouragement has been really motivating to not only exercise but eat better and live a healthier lifestyle.

Kevin Z.

Working with Geof on my weight loss journey has provided the structure, challenge and encouragement I’ve needed. I always look forward to my sessions and I feel good when I launch off to the next part of my day.


 Geof help me ease  into working out in a way that allowed me to see improvements over time. He is very responsive to my needs.  As an example, I recently injured myself.  I explained my injury to Geof and we developed exercises  that I could continue to do without irritating the injury.  This allowed me to continue my workouts without losing what had taken so long to accomplish.  In the past, this type of event would have probably been the end of me hitting the gym!!
Simply put, I may just be in the best shape of my life.  At least the best shape since I was in my 30’s.  I’m 59 and I feel like I can do anything I could do when I was 30!  I recently traveled to Patagonia and my wife and I did a strenuous 12 mile hike.  This would have been impossible two years ago!!!

Geof has been my personal trainer for 3 years now and in that time I have made some big and positive changes to my life thanks in part to his continued efforts.

a few words about me
“Working to help others become healthier and happier is my passion.”

Struggling with poor health due to obesity is a burden no one should have to bear.

Yet now more than ever so many people have to bear the burden of being overweight.

It doesn’t have to be this way!

My name is Geof Shuford. I am the owner and primary personal trainer at Phoenix Fitness in Denver. Since 2010 I have helped hundreds of people confront their obesity and remove obstacles on their path to lasting health and wellness.
