Harold & SamanthaFrom the desk of: Harold and Samantha Prestenbach,
LIFT Training Studios
Serving Mandeville, Louisiana

Dear Friend:

  • Do you believe it’s finally time to get your weight and fitness under control but fear you just don’t have the time to work out? 
  • Do you long to look trim and toned on the beach… or feel confident in the boardroom because you look your very best? 
  • Are you worried that your excess weight is going to start negatively affecting your health?

If so, you’re not alone.  In these days of Supersizing, the last thing you want is a Supersized YOU!

You don’t have to shy away from the mirror or avoiding social situations because you don’t feel good about how you look and feel.  

It’s time to LIFT yourself up, get trim and fit at LIFT Training Studios!

Maybe you’ve tried working at a fitness center before and failed.  Maybe you’ve avoided joining simply because you feared it was too expensive or too time consuming only to turn around and get nowhere for all your efforts.

Let’s face it.  How many people do you know who’ve joined traditional gyms and never gone!  It can be very frustrating when you’ve put in your time, money and energy into something you want so badly only to end up getting no results.  The truth is big gyms just don’t offer you the kind of person attention you need to succeed at your weight loss and fitness goal.

Big Box Gyms Herd People! They Don’t Teach You How to Lose Weight!

It’s not hard to fail if the people running the show aren’t giving you the personal guidance you need.  Unless you’ve worked in fitness before, it’s hard to understand what it will take to lose weight and get your body firm and fit like an athlete.  All the fancy equipment in the world isn’t going to make a difference in your health and fitness if you don’t know how to use it

What worse, left unsupervised, you may even be working your muscles incorrectly, putting you at risk of injury.  Even the smallest injury can further keep you back from achieving your goal of losing weight and getting fit and toned!

My name is Harold Prestenbach and in 2007 I founded LIFT Training Studios with my wife, Samantha.  We both recognized a need that wasn’t being fulfilled in the fitness industry.  Gym memberships are a dime a dozen.  Signing up for a program doesn’t guarantee you’ll lose any weight or firm your muscles.

11-21-2009 03;57;33PM

The vast majority of people who sign up for impersonal gym memberships never attend or quit within the first few weeks  because they don’t have the guidance and support needed to succeed.

Samantha and I recognized early on the importance of solid guidance.  We wanted to create an exclusive private personal training facility that focused solely on giving personal attention to each and every client so they could get the results they desired. 

Although Samantha loved the career she had, she knew there were men and women who had the strong desire to lose weight but were intimidated by the over-crowding of Big Box fitness centers and the lack of guidance.

With our experience in fitness, and my experience Tai Kwon Do, LIFT Training Studios was born and has built a reputation of getting serious results for all our clients.

Unlike other fitness centers, we don’t use gimmicks or hard core persuasion to get you through the door.  We don’t need to!  We want people who have a strong desire to lose weight and tone their bodies to come to us to help them achieve that goal.  At LIFT Training Studios, you’ll get real-life one-on-one training, nutritional consulting, and real life solutions to your physical fitness needs.

Hear what our clients have to say!

Celeste Walther-Moran

Celeste Before & AfterApproximately 14 weeks ago, I committed to making a change to improve my overall lifestyle. I needed to work on my diet, exercise and over all health. Joining LIFT Training Studios "14 week Total Body Transformation" program appeared interesting. But, 14 weeks meant 3 times a week of one-hour workout sessions, cardio two to three times a week and changing my eating habits. Hmm…was this really obtainable? To reach my goals, I would be incorporating cardio, weight training, and modifying my diet. I was not a runner, I could not bear to sweat, and I am somewhat of a "girlie-girl" and I LOVE chocolate. After signing the dotted line, I knew I was in for it. However, soon this commitment became a personal challenge.

As a competitive person, I knew there could be only one winner. It was me against me. My personal trainer, Sam, within no time, deprived me of my diva status. I began to listen more with each work out. "Remember; never let them see you sweat." With her knowledge and guidance my sessions became something to look forward to. I no longer feared the scale, sweating became a feeling of cleansing as I detoxed from all the chocolate and sweets (okay, so maybe there was a relapse here and there). The point is… I am mirror friendly again. Now that my 14 weeks are over, I not only feel GREAT about myself but I have achieved and exceeded my goals. Oh, and I even ran my first 5k!

With 30-45 minute sessions, you may be worried about programs that make you bulk up.  The last thing a woman wants is to bulk up like a man.  And men need a program that will help build their muscles in all the right places. 

My program caters to the unique needs of both men and women.  Woman will work toward getting natural curves that complement their figures.  Men will tone, strengthen and define their muscles so they can have the body they’ve always wanted!

LIFT Training Studios is unlike other programs you may have tried in the past.  Here’s the difference:

  • We are a private studio for personal training in Mandeville, LA near New Orleans.  You won’t be left on your own.  During each 30-45 minute session you will be guided through your training by a professional Mandeville personal trainer.
  • We don’t believe in intimidation or overcrowding.  Bumping elbows isn’t our idea of fun and it certainly makes it difficult to be productive.  We want you to work out in a fun and friendly atmosphere so you’ll be motivated to reach high and achieve your weight loss and fitness goal. 
  • The LIFT Training Studios in Mandeville is designed to get you in the best shape of your life.  To do this, we need to give ample time to each client.  That’s why LIFT Training Studios is by appointment only.  We strive to accommodate your busy schedule. 
  • After working with over 1000 clients we know what you can achieve by joining LIFT Training Studios and we stand behind both you and our program 100%.  That’s why we’re the only fitness and weight loss program in the area that offers what we call the "See Results or Get Your Money Back" Guarantee!

To get the most out of your training, we suggest you train 4 days per week.  But if time is an issue (and what person isn’t juggling a busy schedule these days) you can achieve the same incredible results in just 3 days.  We will simply adjust your training program to a 3 day schedule so you will get maximum results!

Most people begin to see visible results in 2-4 weeks, but some people actually begin to feel and see results in as little as a couple of days after training starts.  It’s very common for LIFT Training Studios clients to go down a pant size or 2 within the first 30 days of training.

This Could Be You!

What can YOU expect when you join LIFT Training Studios?

  • Customized 30-45 minute workout sessions with an expert Mandeville personal trainer.
  • Nutritional consulting to help you eat the right foods so you can lose weight.
  • Food journal, newsletters, grocery shopping list, and meal plan to keep you on track.
  • Drop inches from your waist, thighs, buttocks and upper arms
  • Burn fat and lose 3-6 pounds on average per week
  • Drop 1-2 dress sizes
  • Lose 2-5% body fat every 30 days
  • Firmer thighs and butt
  • Flatter tummy and no more "saddle bags"
  • Reduce fat and that "bloat" feeling
  • No membership fee to have to pay
  • More energy than you’ve ever had before
  • Reaching a level of fitness so you can do the things you never thought you could do.
  • Getting back into your skinny jeans or that little bikini so you can feel confident and your sexy best on the beach
  • More confidence than you’ve had in years!

Rick & Julie Loumiet


My husband and I are so happy to have discovered LIFT Training Studios. The impact in our lives has been amazing.

Turning 49 years old and knowing I had to start being proactive about my health, I signed up at LIFT for a seven week program -- 30 minute sessions, three times per week, with Lift’s Lead personal trainer . Realizing 49 years of on-again-off-again exercise habits (mostly off-again) had taken a toll, and being reasonably sure 30 minutes wouldn’t kill me, I put my confidence in the expertise of Lift. Seven weeks later, I had lost pounds, inches and body fat. I was so excited about the improvement I had seen. And so was my husband! We decided LIFT was well worth working into our budget, and two years later continue to believe that. So much so, that at the beginning of this year my husband, Rick, who has always been well-disciplined with exercise, also became a client of LIFT and is seeing the difference a personal trainer makes.

I ran one mile for the first time ever in my life just before turning 50 years old. I’ve lost about 20 pounds, 24 inches, and half my body fat (and yes, that does include my thighs!). Who knew I would ever actually see abs and not just believe they were there by faith? And, my husband and I recently rode our new bicycles 40 miles in the Tour de Life! Perhaps the most amazing transformation has been my attitude about exercise, nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. Exercise is not a dirty word any more, and I’ve discovered nutritious food can actually be tasty! I may be getting older, but I feel new and improved.

LIFT Training Studios has a staff of professional personal trainers who plan creative, challenging workouts designed to meet individual needs. Rick and I continue to be encouraged and inspired to make healthy choices that we know will reap a lifetime of reward. And as for me and what keeps me motivated? The same as it was two years ago. Real results! At LIFT, you have not only a personal trainer, but a whole team whose goal is your growing success with results you never imagined possible.

Jamie Hilderbrand

Jamie Before & AfterThroughout my life physical fitness has always been a priority. I was satisfied with my fitness level but I knew I could push myself to another level. After college and starting a full time job, my fitness routine became intermittent. I knew at that point I would need someone to give me that extra push and hold me accountable for my workouts. Fortunately, my friend recommended that we join Lift together for a 7-week program to enhance our fitness level. This could not have come at a better time since my wedding day was in 7 months. After seven weeks at Lift I was hooked! The trainers’ professionalism, creativity and dedication had me coming back for more. Ten months later I am still hooked. Tim has been an excellent trainer and a great motivator. Throughout my training he has also placed a great emphasis on nutrition. Being a part of Lift has greatly improved my body and overall health.

Kelly Nolan

Kelly Before & AfterI can't thank Sam and Harold, LIFT Training Studios, enough for opening up a boot camp at a time that I could attend...5:45am. Plenty of people think I'm crazy getting up that early, but let me just say when I finish that class I feel energized and ready to start my day! PLUS there are NO excuses that early in the morning :) Sam and Mark have worked me hard in order for me to achieve my goals - lose weight, tone up my body, fit into my clothes better and feel good about myself! I felt like a million bucks in that bikini and I don't even like wearing bikinis!!! This picture will be my incentive to keep up the hard work.

"Sweating like a pig" and staying away from the sweets, that I always crave, to get my arms looking sexy, legs sleek and toned and my abs lookin’ like a 6 pack will be well worth it!

Thanks for everything!

Suzanne Sonnier

Suzanne Before & AfterThank you LIFT for my new body! No one ever had the knowledge, expertise, or patience to help me achieve my goals. Here I am, 5 years later and I'm keeping off the weight! Losing over 150 lbs was a shock, but my trainer believed in me and helped me set goals along our journey. Each step was slow but progressive, helping me tackle obstacles along the way. I look better now than I did in my twenties!

Kristee Brown

Kristee Before & AfterAll I can say is Lift is incredible. I can't believe four years ago I met with Sam and I was eager but nervous. I knew I had a lot of work to do to get back in shape but Sam assured me that what I wanted to accomplish could be done. They helped me with nutrition and pushed me to levels I never knew were possible. I'm hooked! Every year I find out there is something new I can do. I went on a cruise and surfed! Do you know how hard that is on your core!? To say I'm in the best shape of my life is an understatement. I look and feel amazing and it's all because of Lift.

Mandy Rouse Martinolich

3 years ago, I walked into Lift just a few months before my wedding needing to tone up fast. I didn't have much weight to lose but I knew my body could be healthier and look better. Having already bought my bikini's for the honeymoon too, the pressure was really on! Lift started me instantly on a meal plan with awesome meal suggestions that actually helped me with my stomach issues as well. Weeks into my training, my dress was already being taken in more and more. I had never looked better! After the big day, Lift was just a part of my life. Not long after, I found out I was pregnant and Lift kept me in shape during the whole 9 months and got me back into shape soon after. My husband joined me in training and we completed our first half marathon with Lift's help and support. Having just welcomed my second son into the world, I know exactly what to do now to get my pre-baby body back. Thank you LIFT for keeping me fit! You are like a home away from home.

Peter Miller

Peter Before & AfterThe quality of my life before I discovered fitness was very low. Physically, I was always tired and never slept well. I was over weight, standing 5’ 10” and weighing 218lbs with a waist size of 41”. My poor lifestyle and dietary choices led me to having high blood pressure and eventually being a first stage diabetic. Mentally, I was distressed with the way I felt and looked and I was not comfortable being around others because of it. In December of 2006, I found myself at 64 1/2 years old on blood pressure medications while the doctor informed me about my diabetic problems (What a great Christmas present). At last, I knew it was time for a change. I had a long talk with myself and decided if I wanted to be around much longer I needed to take action. Fitness has changed my life in so many ways. No longer do I have medical problems, I sleep well at night, eat healthy meals, but most of all I feel good about myself. My current weight is 158 lbs , waist size 31, Body Fat is 11.8 %! Thanks to the trainers at LIFT Training Studios, I am stronger now then any time in my life! With out my personal trainer and the training techniques they teach me, the results I have achieved would not be possible. They motivate, challenge, and guide you to a better life.

Samantha Jane' Prestenbach

Sam Before & AfterJust because I've been a personal trainer for over a decade doesn't mean fitness came easy to me or I've always had it right. It's quite the opposite actually. See, I was never an athlete, other than cheerleading and a natural love for running (but certainly did not have natural endurance), I was your typical young female. I loved watching movies and especially my Sunday tradition of watching "Sex in The City" while enjoying a pint of ice cream. I ate fast food regularly, I drank soft drinks like water, I certainly didn't drink enough water, I did not want to push myself if it meant any discomfort (not even if it meant I would change my body) and I certainly did not want to hear I was in denial. Too addicted to food and laziness to admit it was sabotaging my only hopes to enjoy the body, the life that I was given and to make wellness my own. Through my years in fitness, owning my own business, becoming the partner my husband deserves, and learning to be the mom my 2 baby girls deserve; I have finally found myself and the true meaning of wellness.

Anything we do at LIFT, we live our selves. We have searched for years to find not only nutrition that produces weight loss and fat loss, but nutrition that promotes longevity and true health! I am a walking testimonial to that, our 30 Day challenge keeps me lean, energetic, and healthy year round no matter if I train 0, 2, or 5 days a week. Our approach in exercise is efficient in every way. We are movement specialists and will wake up the body. After having 2 babies, I never thought I would bounce back from each one so seamlessly and oddly enough, with a stronger body.

I have some fantastic friends who treated me to a personal trainer as a wedding present, and let me tell you, if there is someone special you would like to give an unbeatable gift to, send him or her to LIFT! Working with Sam at LIFT has changed my life. She is awesome! I've always enjoyed healthy foods but Sam taught me to how to balance my carb, protein, and fat intake by eating clean. She also kicked my butt in the gym twice a week! We did something different every day. She pushed me out of my comfort zone and into the best shape of my life. As a result of my time at LIFT I lost 8.3% body fat in 3 months and gained the confidence and know-how to maintain the healthy, happy me that Sam created!

This truly is the gift to last a life time. Thanks guys

Brett Laurent (42 years old)

Brett L. Before & AfterI've been working out at LIFT for the past 8 months and have seen amazing results in that time. I've lost 25 lbs along with lowering my fat percentage from 25 percent to 12 percent. I have never felt stronger or healthier, even when I lifted weights consistently in college. LIFT is passionate about fitness and it shows through the energy and enthusiasm that the trainers bring to every session. Each workout is very challenging, creative, and most important, never the same! LIFT also places a high value on correct form with each exercise and motivates me to push past my perceived limits to get results. My energy level, balance, and flexibility have improved immensely.

If you are serious about changing your life for the better, LIFT will lead you every step of the way and keep you coming back for more.

Thank you LIFT, you're the best!

Laura Montgomery

Laura Before & AfterFor twenty years I had worked out on my own, doing aerobics and light weights. At times I was very enthusiastic about my workouts and at other times, did just enough to not feel terribly guilty. I read just about every diet book and fitness magazine I could find. But my weight and body fat kept increasing each year. Fast forward to 8 months ago (August 2008). My husband and I adopted two children in August of 2007, and suddenly my workouts became less important and there was always something else that needed to be done instead of exercising. I convinced myself that I really didn't look much different, but my clothes and energy level told me otherwise. I realized something needed to be done. I needed to get control of my health and fitness level. I joined LIFT after hearing about the Total Body Transformation. After meeting with Harold and Sam and describing what I wanted in a trainer, they introduced me to Tracey. I started training with Tracey in August 2008. She has been terrific. Without being a drill sergeant, she pushes me to levels I did not know I had in me.

She has taught me to lift heavier weights without the "bulking up" I had always read about but did not desire. Tracy encourages me constantly concerning my progress and motivates me to continue to push forward. I have found my body changing in ways I never thought possible. I am 44 years old and basically thought that much of how my body looked was not going to change. I didn‘t feel old but every so often I felt like I was too late in trying to change my body. I was wrong! In training with Tracy, she has allowed me to see my body change, as I never thought it would. I lost 20 pounds over the 14 week TBT, but more importantly, I lost inches from all over. With the right fitness knowledge, Tracy has been able to transform my body to a shape I had only dreamed about. With her encouragement and expertise, she has guided me into new territory and each week I look forward to see how much more I can do. I have an increased energy level, eat healthy without feeling like I am on a diet and continue to see results even after having completed the 14-week TBT. Tracy has been a perfect match for me in pursuing my fitness goals. She has allowed me to be the 44 year old I had only dreamed of. Her positive reinforcement along with the healthy realistic attitude she projects makes it a joy to train with her. I could never have achieved these incredible results without having trained with Tracy!

Jennifer Stockstill Before & AfterJennifer Stockstill

Fit Body Boot Camp is no joke, it's the real deal!!! It has been such a positive influence on my life. I have so much energy now and actually look forward to working out! The workouts are always changing and always challenging and the results are BIG! In just a few weeks I began to notice more defined abs and toner arms and legs! The instructor is energetic, fun, and encouraging! Simply - I love it!

Alisha Wimberly

Ashley WimberlyAlysha Wimberly, Mrs. Louisiana 2006, sought out my services for event preparation training. This was the closest to an event that I had ever trained anyone, we had about 4 weeks to get her into peak physical shape for a national pageant. As one could imagine, Alysha was already in great shape. My job was to fill out her muscles and tone up a few minor trouble areas for her swimsuit round. We trained at least 3 days a week and she did cardio on her own in addition to following a very regimented diet. As challenging and intense as the training was, we still managed to have a blast together at the same time. Her light hearted demeanor and will to succeed makes this woman beautiful inside and out. We tested her body fat before the pageant and she registered at an incredible 12.5 %. Now, that is dedication. Keep an eye out for this bombshell. She's not just gorgeous, but she is an incredibly talented singer as well with a bright future ahead.

Christopher W.

Christopher W."Training with Samantha has transformed my body and completely changed my life. Her passion and drive for helping me achieve my goals is the reason I am now in the best shape of my entire life. I eat better, I lift better, I feel better and I look better. She worked with me to not only improve my weight training and cardio, but also to set a healthful and completely do-able fat-burning diet. Thanks to Samantha, I lost 27 pounds and cut my body fat in half in 4 months. She motivated me and inspired me to take better care of my body and to workout more capably and effectively. She clearly cares about what she does. My results are proof of that."

Ann Hall

Ann Hall"I have been a member of a gym for over 15 years and have seen little results in changing my body until I started personal training with Sam. Having a personal trainer introduce me to weight training and proper nutrition led to my success. The key to success was not only the knowledge Sam provided in developing my exercise routines and nutrition, but her special motivational skills that allowed me to maximize my results,stay focused and enjoy my workouts."
