It would not be an exaggeration if I said I was trying to lose weight since I was 12 years old. Now thanks to John and his body bus, at age 54 I can happily state I am succeeding. I lost close to 40 lbs in 5 months, and I think the key to this success is John’s ability to motivate, make workout fun, his empathy, his willingness to listen and encourage. Our disappointments become his, our success becomes his and he gets completely invested in our goal to lose weight. John is a great motivator, always on time with a smile on his face and his knowledge about nutrition and how different bodies respond go a long way in helping trainees to lose weight. I have another 50 lbs to go before I reach my goal weight, and I have no hesitation to state I will be able to do it. Never thought I will say it with such confidence but John with his body bus is helping me build that confidence. Will be back after I lose those 50 lbs to endorse him again 🙂


I have been training with John on the Body Bus for 7 weeks. I have lost over 25 pounds and 2 pant sizes. Over the past 20 years, I have tried every diet ever written, only to lose a few pounds then gain those pounds plus more back when stopping the diet. I also have hired several different personal trainers in Ocala, but did not get the results I have gotten with John. At my first workout with John, he counseled me on getting healthy. He set a weight loss goal for me along with an exercise and healthy eating plan. Through his workouts and support, I have already lost 1/3 of my weight loss goal in 7 short weeks. John is the most knowledgeable, supportive, and professional trainer I have ever met. I look forward to my workouts with him each week and know I will achieve my total weight loss and fitness goals with his continued personalized program for me. Thank you John!

I have been training with John for nearly a month and it has been a great experience. I’ve learned so much about nutrition and proper exercise from him- he really knows his stuff! I have had several surgeries on my legs and most trainers in the past have gone “easy” on me (which I really don’t like). John pushes me while still being cautious of the limitations with my legs which I really appreciate. He’s given me faith that I can get fit even if I have bad legs! I have made so much progress in the past month, and have lost approximately 20inches all around! Now I have to move away to go back to school, and I’m really disappointed that I won’t be able to continue using the Body Bus. I would DEFINITELY recommend working with John. It’s definitely going to be difficult to find another trainer with his knowledge base and great, supportive training style!

Having never been to a gym before, and being somewhat intimidated by them, my mother and I decided to finally take the leap and look for a trainer. We spent about a month trying to find one that would fit us and our schedules best when we remembered seeing his bus one day. We soon contacted him, got started and haven’t looked back!
After just five months with him, I personally am in the best shape I have ever been in my life and I see new results each and every day. I have lost inches and pounds and put on pure muscle. Not only has he completely turned around my entire body, but also my lifestyle, dietary habits and my confidence. I am stronger, healthier, and much more understanding about my health and fitness than I was just six months ago.
He is extremely knowledgeable and genuinely cares about your results and I would recommend him to anybody who wants to be fitter and healthier and turn their entire diet habits around.
Thank you so much John!

I started working with John in December 2010. I have thoroughly enjoyed every workout and the encouragement he has givem me. I am 57 years old and I feel like I am starting to get my old figure back. He has been particularly helpful with my diet (or lack there of!!) and has really tried to point me in the right direction. In only 2 monthsd I already have lost inches and my stomach is flatter! I plan to keep it up and I can highly recommend John for any of you out there who really are serious about getting in better shape and having a ‘TRULY’ one on one experience. So much better than a public gym in my opinion!

I have known John for many years and was always impressed by his workouts and what good shape he was in. After many years of different trainers and diets with no results, my husband asked John if he could help me out. Well I had an appointment with John and that was the beginning of a whole new life. After six months my life has took a turn for the better, I have lost weight and inches, I have more strength, more energy, and a whole new outlook on life. I have gained alot of muscle in my arms and back,and my stomach is flat for the first time since I was in school and I am 51 years old. I have learned how, what, and when to eat. I have confidence and feel better than I ever have. I can’t wait to hit the beach this summer I won’t be hiding behind the towel. John is always there when I need to ask him about a move or about my eating plan. I just have so much strength now ,I go for the big weights and don’t whimp out. Thanks John for all you do for me, I only wish I could have started sooner but to quote a friend ” It’s never too late”.

“Trainer, heal thyself.” Even as a personal trainer myself, I reached a point where I had plateaued when it came to my own workouts. I put so much time and effort into the physical fitness programs of others but I was struggling to find the motivation and therefore, the results that I wanted for myself. I needed a new fresh set of eyes on my workout regimens. I also needed a workout plan that complemented my half-marathon training schedule. That’s when I met John, a friend of my boyfriend’s. He gave me all these new ideas for building core strength and gaining all over lean muscle mass. He also helped me with my diet, something I wasn’t an expert in. It has paid off immensely. Not only do I feel the best I’ve ever felt but I’ve knocked off minutes off my half-marathon personal record! Thanks again, John!!

I’ve been working out John for several years and must say that I am in the best physical shape of my life! Prior to working with John, I had what I thought was a good “working knowledge” of the gym and how to get into shape. After only a month with John I was making big gains in terms of strength and stamina. John also wrote a great diet for me that helped me put on muscle, not just mass.

Though I’ve recently moved to St. Louis, MO, John has kept up with providing me workout plans, fitness ideas, and dietary suggestions.

I give John my highest recommendation, not only for the results and professionalism that he shows, but also for his genuine interest in helping myself and others get fit and healthy.

I started working out with John Yule and the Body Bus in May 2009. In 4 months I lost 10% of my starting body weight. Although I am in my mid-50’s, I was able to return to the waist size I had during my 20’s and . John’s workout program, coupled with his advice for my off days, along with nutritional guidance helped me increase my bodys metabolism and keep weight off. On top of that, I feel great. Most importantly, all of my cholesterol numbers dropped significantly and my Doctor stopped urging me to go on Lipitor. You can’t get better than that! I enjoy my time on “The Bus” and, although I am soon to start my 3rd year with John, it is still fresh and exciting. I had never been able to keep an exercise program going for more than about 3 months. It helps to have your “gym” pull up to your house on a regular schedule!

Until recently, health and fitness was never a priority in my life. Because of this, I wasn’t overly familiar with any comprehensive workout routines or diet regimens. This made it incredibly intimidating for me to walk into a gym on my own. I’d heard many great things about the “Body Bus” that I’d always see driving around town, but have to admit that I was initially motivated to contact the company mostly out of vanity. Never did I think that I would also notice a bigger difference in my energy, strength, and endurance more then ever before!

After less then a couple of weeks worth of sessions with John, I’d already lost over nine inches and felt better then ever! My biggest worries committing myself to such a program are much the same as most other working class people- money, time, and fear. His sessions are more affordable then even most “straight out of school” trainers you see at franchise fitness centers. This is especially evident, considering he customizes your daily diet and nutrition plan on day one and provides you with the highest quality supplements in the industry. John will also customize his schedule to sync with your own, and comes straight to you. Most importantly, it’s clear to even the biggest skeptic that after only one session with him, he is undoubtedly an expert in his field. He is completely in tune with your physical needs and capabilities, in my case even more so then I was. He consistently pushes me more then I ever thought possible, but somehow never fails to make me walk out feeling on top of the world!

None of this goes without saying, though, how great of a personality he has day in and day out! He makes it a blast to work out, and is incredibly motivational… He is sincerely invested in your progress, and it becomes obvious how he uses it at his own motivation to quickly transform you into the best version of yourself. The Body Bus has made me look forward to actively do something that I used to cringe just thinking about.

I’ve met body builders and athletes that John trains, and always witnessed how highly they spoke of him both professionally and personally. I believe a true testiment of his ability, though, is how he can convert an average person like me with no health/fitness experience or knowledge and influence them to make an absolute life change, almost overnight!
