“Where do I begin…
I have known Casey since 2015, and from the start I knew he was full of passion for fitness and helping others! Up until 15 weeks ago, I’ve been supporting what he’s been doing from the sidelines, but always wondered what it was like to actually be a #caseytrainclient.
So one day when I weighed 245lbs, was in the worst shape of my life, had no confidence, and just looked disgusting, I made one of the best decisions and joined the family officially! I have tried other diets and workout regimens, but never stayed consistent.
I knew Casey knew his stuff, but I didnt know he knew as much as he does! Casey is the most knowledgeable, motivating, inspiring, and downright passionate coach out there. He is available 24/7 to answer any questions or even just to celebrate the small (or big) goals with you, or just to help keep you accountable! Through the strategic diet and workout routine, along with the expertly crafted supplement line of Iron Muscle Nutrition, I have lost 45lbs of FAT in just 15 weeks while putting on lean muscle! I’m feeling more confident every single day and am breaking personal records almost daily! This experience has been invaluable, and I cannot be more grateful! Watch my progress… I’m only getting started!”

Good Morning Coach, brother and most importantly friend!
I don’t even know where to start this email to you Casey. Before we connected in September 2018 I was on a fitness journey that looked like tires spinning in mud. Thinking I looked pretty good but not feeling great! Always sucking in my gut to try and give the appearance of a chiseled physique, but at the same time having massive pain in my back and shoulders constantly! I was on a road that was leading me to having diabetes, as it is in my family. My systolic blood pressure was sitting usually in the high 140s and even at one point got to almost 160s, being with you for the last 12 weeks now when I check it’s sitting at 117!! I’m honestly not sure where I would be without you and your help and guidance! That is why I took the plunge and signed on with you for 12 weeks at first and now for the full next year! I had no clue I could do what you have shown me I am capable of! Without your nutrition plan and overall input into what I am doing with my health I don’t know where I would be. The CaseyTrain family are all there to help and offer nothing but support and it has been an amazing thing that has been put into my life. My kids, my wife, and I will be forever grateful for what you have done for me. I believe it has extended my lifespan by a great amount and I will always be a part of This Casey Train family for the rest of my days!! Thank you and much love always!!

“My name is Lisa Workman. I’m 42, a mother of 2 boys, a wife, and elementary school teacher.
I’ll never forget the first time I messaged Casey. I had been watching his story for a while, making little comments here and there, but there was one part of his story that just made me think “I need that kind of motivation and positivity in my life”. So I sent him a message saying I needed him to motivate me every day. His reply, “I got you.” And he really does. Even before I became part of the family, Casey motivated me to start a change in my life for the better.
My experience so far, going into my 6th week, has been an inspiring and positive one. I’ve lost 11lbs, inches all over, and compliments on how good I’m looking. I brag about Casey and Casey Train to everyone I come in contact with. I’ve struggled with my weight all my life and I’ve tried everything out there. Casey is an excellent coach and has talked me through some bad days, and keeps me focused on my goal.
I feel better every day, I’m more energetic and ready to face my day head on to get my “W” at the end of the day.
It’s not only about weight loss. Casey has helped me find something that I thought I had lost a long time ago. It wasn’t long ago, I lost sight of my value, my worth. I have been made to feel unlovable, unwanted, and unworthy for so long that I started to believe that I was all those things and so much less. Through his messages and motivation, he has inspired me to be the best version of me that I can be. To beat the person staring back at me in the mirror. My life is getting better, I’m feeling awesome and more positive and I know that it’s because God placed Casey in my path.
Casey isn’t just a fitness coach, he truly is a genuine, God loving, good person and knows his stuff. I’m lucky to have such a positive role model in my life, a good friend, who I can call family! Let’s get it!”
My name is Cody Wyatt and joining the CaseyTrain family was one of the BEST decisions I have made in my life.
I was 6’6″ 451lbs and just full of excuses and would run out of breath with the slightest movements. All I could do was think about both my boys (Sam and Ollie) and how I would affect them when they started sports, or if they wanted to play outside with me and I had to tell them no cause daddy was to tired or worn out. I didnt want that to happen, so on 10-26-18 I walked through the gym doors to make a change to better myself, not just for me, but for my boys and to one day show them anything is possible.
I was a couple months into my journey and I had done ok. Slowly worked into a routine, tried to follow the somewhat little knowledge I had on diets. Tried powerlifting and all that fun stuff but that wasn’t it for me. I wasnt doing this to try to be the strongest one in the gym. I was doing it to become healthier and be better by the day in all aspects of life. This is where the fun began.
Sent my first message to Casey not knowing who he was as a person or anything. I had known some clients that worked with him and I wanted to see what he could do with me. Let me tell you… After our first conversation I was fired up like no other. I’ve had coaches before but none like Casey Barnette. We instantly went to work. Dialed in my meal plan, workouts, daily activities, and weekly check ins. Called him whenever I had a question or was confused on a matter. The passion he has for his clients is one like I’ve never seen before. We are all family in CaseyTrain and EVERYONE has eachothers back. That’s all because how Casey chooses to lead the CaseyTrain family. He leads by example. To Be Better By the Day in all aspects of life. Hes not just a coach to me. He is someone that I crossed paths with and am proud to call him a brother.
I was 451lbs at one time. No energy, stamina, endurance, self confidence, and even hated looking at myself in the mirror. Now, now that I’m part of the strongest family out there, I have all of that plus some. Ive lost a total of 183lbs as of now and this is the best I have ever felt in my life physically and mentally. Working towards my first show and many more after! Reaching goals I’d never thought I’d ever reach. A complete night and day difference between who I was and who I am now.
I could seriously go on and on about what Casey and The CaseyTrain family means to me but to sum it up. It truly saved my life in more ways than one!!
“Casey is not just a trainer, he’s a motivator, a barrier breaker, and a straight up selfless guy. He’s got a vision and big dreams. I got introduced to Casey from Shyy another one in the family and one of the hardest working women in the gym I’ve seen. So I knew that there was something there. When I started Caseytrain I had a big dream and knew what I wanted but didn’t know how to get there. I had this mental barrier that I would never get big enough or that I started too late to become a bodybuilder. He shows all of us that the things we think that are impossible become possible. Everyday we have a choice to go out and get what we want and chase our dream or just let them pass by. Failure is all part of the process but when your learn from your failures you start to change and grow. Casey calls all of us his family because that’s how much he cares and wants to see us succeed. We’re all part of something bigger so let’s make this train grow!!!!”

“You must make a choice to take a chance or your life/body/health will never change, but you are not alone in manifesting your dreams or goals….this is what the CaseyTrain family is about and has meant to me. I am going into my 6th week and haven’t seen my body respond in such a way ever. I’ve tried to read and do things on my own, and I couldn’t’ stick with anything. Since joining, I haven’t been perfect, but have been honest and communicate everything on my progress. I’m a former college athlete, with 3 young kids and let everything go. Personally going through the most difficult time in my life from multiple angles, but I made the choice and took a chance to reach out to Casey (thanks Jake S.)! A decision I will never regret.
I’ve seen improvement every week, even with subtle changes he will make in my diet, and it motivates me to keep going. Seeing others in the family grow and succeed is even more empowering. There are just intangible motivations and knowledge you gain working with CaseyTrain:
1. Passion – Casey truly cares about your growth and achievement. A focus on you and your goals as an individual. We are all different in sizes, weight, height, daily movement, etc., and he adapts to you. This is a family, a network, but everyone matters to Casey and gets his undivided attention. He takes the time with you, answers your questions so you feel at peace, and gets you going for the next week (send your plan in on time ).
2. Focus – He has a rare gift, a drive that in my opinion, sets him apart from other trainers. It is something that is infectious and I’m sure why he does what he does. His commitment to each person, the members he reaches across the nation, and continuing to expand the brand is special (not to mention continuing his own personal goals and ambitions). This man is always on – rain, no sleep, or shine; and you want that from a leader. As he would say….”be better than yesterday or beat yesterday’s version”
3. Family – The support system of the family is something truly special. You feel a part in some way of each other’s journey and growth. Anyone that does not have “CTrain” swag on will out work us on any day (they better not). You are surrounded by people working towards common goals and that’s a positive thing to be a part of. Feed off that energy, and just put in the work, hold yourself accountable, each day is a win and focus on that….the finish line will come, but win each day!
I am grateful to be a part of such a positive and motivated group of people, from those who are actual Athletes, to single mother’s or dad’s, or those just wanting/needing a new change. Joining the family has changed my life in ways I wouldn’t have imagined, but feel this is just the beginning….Let’s get it!”

“My journey began with Casey in March. I had major surgery in December and was unable to exercise for approximately 6 months. His name kept coming up at the local gym and always in a positive way. I knew this was not an accident. After contacting him and lining out a nutritional and exercise plan I knew immediately he was “my trainer”. My first eye opener was the amount of food I was NOT eating. Mercy it was hard to get all of it down. He was very positive and encouraged me to eat it all. After a few days my body realized I was doing this and accepted the food. My metabolism was in the tank and without his help it would’ve stayed in that very tank. For the first time in my life, I see zero point in starving myself to lose weight. I also feel like I finally have a sustainable solution. When he says you can ask him anything at any time he really means it. I have had some strange questions and he genuinely wants to answer you promptly and correctly. My strength has improved so much that it is crazy. I have tried to do this myself and did ok but never did it well, until I hired Casey. Following his plan has given me a sense of confidence about my body that I haven't had before.
I do not foresee a time in the future without having Casey as my coach. I am frequently asked “WHY did you want to lose weight? You aren’t fat.” THAT was never the point. Weight is a number and a healthy functioning better metabolizing body is and was the goal. I want to be healthy, happy and fully functioning until my golden years. I am on the right track and intend on staying the course. If you are considering using Casey PLEASE do yourself a favor and jump in. What do you have to lose except bad habits and health problems? Thank you Casey for all you do to better all of us.”
