“People have become separated from their bodies. They are no longer whole. I see them move from their offices to their cars and on to their suburban homes. They stress out constantly, they lose sleep, they eat badly. And they behave badly. Their egos run wild; they become motivated by that which will eventually give them a massive stroke. They need the Iron Mind.”

Client reviews

What the clients have to say

  • I have been working with Christian at Valor Body for about 8 months and I can truly say he is the best trainer I have ever worked with. I have lost over 80 pounds since starting to work with Christian. He is never judgmental and really cares about his clients health. His workouts are always very creative and it’s never the same thing twice, so you will never be bored! He listens to what your goals are and can adapt any workout on a moment’s notice to fit your needs. He isn’t afraid to jump in with you during a workout and is always very motivational! He has truly inspired me and has helped me create a healthy lifestyle that I will take with me forever.

  • Christian is dedicated, diligent, and responsive. I have been training with him for almost four months and he does his best to keep the routines exciting, challenging, and fresh. If there are goals that I want to achieve, he is sure to incorporate workouts that will help me realize them.

  • Christian is very knowledgeable and committed to helping you achieve your goals. Also, you can’t be the price. Great experience all together.

  • Christian is an awesome personal trainer. You can’t ask for anyone better. He is very professional and concerned about who you are, where you want to be and helping you to get to your goal. He is a true friend that cares a lot about you and your health. He pushes you to the limit. The workouts are no joke though. However he works with you and it has been paying off for me. When I first started it was super hard. I have a thyroid issue. I have been struggling with my weight for a long time. I was tired of it. I wanted to not only get in shape but I wanted to live a healthier lifestyle. Out of all trainers and workouts Christian knows how to target those areas of your body where it is needed and he has a lot of knowledge with what works best for your body type, what you can eat and how in the long run to keep the weight off . I have lost a good amount of weight. It feels good for people to notice and compliment you on a job well done. Clothes are getting loose and I am starting to see a transformation. From the bottom of my heart Christian I appreciate you so much. I am glad I met you and I wouldn’t trade you in for no other personal trainer not at all. FYI after my trip to Florida for my performance I will be back ready to work hard. Motivation your friend XavieraXaviera E. on December 16, 2015
  • Christian created a personalized workout program designed for me to succeed. He will help with diet and nutrition as well. Highly recommended.James M. on November 24, 2015


  • Christian is a phenomenal trainer with a profound understanding of what needs to be done to achieve your desired results. His methods are unorthodox and his workouts are never the same, so your body can’t adapt to the exercise (making it less effective), ensuring maximum results. I highly recommend Valor Body training if you’re serious about exercising and reaching your full potential!
  • Christian is a very caring and competent professional trainer. He is genuinely concerned about me meeting my fitness goals. I am confident that I will reach my goals with his guidance and his willingness to go the extra mile to assist me. I would highly recommend this personal trainer.

  • Ladies, if you want to quit messing around and really, truly get your a$$ kicked into shape, Christian is the guy. He is personable, down to earth and professional. But make no mistake — he will not cut you any slack because you are female. He will push you just as hard as his male clients, but as he likes to say, that’s what changes you. And after only 2 short weeks of working with him, I realize that statement has more than one meaning. With his help, I have accomplished more than I ever thought I was capable of, and for the first time in my life, I actually look forward to working out.

  • I have been using Christian since November 2014 and I am very happy with the progress and service he provides. I am a 32-year-old Type I Diabetic (28 years) and I have always hated to work out. But Christian has changed my mind about that. With his customized individual workout plans and nutrition goals, I have lost 12 inches. I can dead lift 250 lbs and I have a pretty great left hook. Christian is very flexible which I appreciate since I my work requires me to travel A LOT. I cannot wait for the next 16 weeks.

  • This has been a great training experience. Christian is always hard working, professional and communicates well. He takes the time to understand your strengths and weaknesses in order to best accomplish your goals.

  • LOVE LOVE LOVE VALOR BODY! This guy will make you sweat!
    I started training at Valor to get in shape for my upcoming wedding. Our workouts took place in his gym along with outside at a nearby park. I trained with Christian three days a week for an hour each time. I am going on 4 months now working with him and I am down 15 pounds and able to lift more weight than I ever imagined I could!
    What impressed me the most about Christian was his flexibility with scheduling appointments and overall attitude about health and fitness. This guy is super fit but is always honest about how he loves to eat and enjoys drinking beer. He made me feel that I didn’t have to completely change my diet in order to be successful but rather make little changes instead. Another plus is that if he doesn’t have a client scheduled after you he will sometimes go over to get more of a workout in!
    Word of advice: Your workouts won’t always take place in his heated garage! In fact, he will get you outside as much as possible. Dress appropriately and be up for anything!

  • Christian is an amazing trainer who really knows how to help you achieve the body you want or need! He has helped me immensely with strengthening my back ( with bulging discs) but also with muscle tone all over! He pushes you to do what you didn’t even know what was possible. He also takes the time to get to know you and what you want to achieve. I highly recommend Valor Body!

  • I have never been one to stick with a workout routine. I generally start going to the gym for two weeks or so, and then life gets in the way. I’ve never progressed enough to see results. So when I realized I had two months until my wedding, I searched for a personal trainer on Thumbtack and found Christian/Valor Body! I’ve never sweat so much. And most importantly, I’ve never seen results like this OR felt as good as I do now! Everyone around me has noticed, too. Christian knows exactly what exercises to focus on in order to get the results I’m looking for. He’s flexible with scheduling sessions, and he’s also very reasonable. I never feel like I’m being judged or yelled at. I highly recommend.

  • Christian is an amazing personal trainer. He bases each client’s workout on their needs for that day and the stage of their training. He keeps me motivated each week to keep pushing. I would recommend Christian to anyone who needs help kick starting their motivation to get healthy!

  • If you want to get in shape, he’s the man to see!

  • Christian is a great trainer. His workouts are tough, but the results will be well worth it. He will push you to the limit with both traditional and nontraditional strength and circuit training. If you’re looking to get stronger and leaner, this guy is GREAT!!!!

  • Phenomenal experience! He knows his stuff! Can’t wait for every week! 🙂

  • Big Shout out to my trainer Christian Shelton at Valor Body. In the small window of time I had available to work with Christian the experience was amazing. I would highly recommend him as your personal trainer. He is very thorough and personable in his style of training. He takes the time to listen to your personal goals and desires and works very well with you until all challenges have been met. What impressed me the most about Christian’s style of training was that you don’t have to worry about being the strongest or toughest each goal is mapped out for your own personal strengths. He definitely taught me about self motivation and mental strength not everything about exercising is physical. I definitely proved to myself that I was more mentally strong and physically stronger than I thought. I’m very pleased to have had the pleasure of working with such a talented trainer who genuinely cares about his clients well being and overall personal health.

  • I have tried different programs, including Crossfit and have worked with other trainers, and I can easily say Christian is the best. I cannot believe my results. My strength gains are amazing and I am more toned than ever. His workouts are tough, but he makes them fun. I have my permanent personal trainer!

  • Christian is the man! An intense workout makes you leave knowing that you just busted you butt!

  • As an athlete, it’s hard to find a workout that challenges you both physically and mentally. Christian kicked my butt and tailored the workout to my needs. Great opportunity for all skill levels to get into great shape. Highly recommend checking out Christian Shelton and Valor Body!

  • I watched Christian create a workout for my son on the fly while we were in Michigan not long ago, he also motivated the other children and their mother to work out as well (a first for all of them). His dedication to healthy living is astounding. I have requested a workout and diet schedule for myself which I plan to incorporate, his motivational tactics will make you believe that you can achieve your goals.

  • Lifting weights can be intimidating for a woman. Working with Christian has not only given me the confidence to attempt weightlifting but the knowledge of proper form to avoid injury. I have nothing but positive reviews for Christian and Valor Body.

  • Working with Valor Body and Christian has been a great experience! I have been able to better understand my body and it’s needs in fitness and nutrition with Christian’s help and guidance. His positive attitude combined with just enough of a tough push has helped me so much!
