About Me

I am a Certified Personal Trainer based out of Bergenfield, NJ, providing service in Bergen County, NJ and surrounding areas under the name Factor 11 Fitness. I offer both "In Home" personal training as well as "On Site" training at my facility.

I make it my personal mission to motivate you and help you realize that you are capable of way more than you might think. It is how I approach my own training and I bring the same mentality to our time together.

Helping people get in shape, get strong and having a more energetic and vibrant life through health and fitness isn't a job to me its a way of life I want to share with you!!!

What to Expect

A typical training session always includes,

A) warmup in order to get the body temperature raised and the joints and muscles prepared for the work to come
B) the prescribed work for the session based on the clients goals and
C) some type of cool down to adequately decompress and reset the body. There may be a few surprises thrown in here or there : ).

I am a very hands on type of trainer who likes to demonstrate and participate with my clients as necessary as opposed to sitting and watching and dictating to them. I always expect an honest effort from my clients in the same manner that I always give an honest effort in providing the guidance and motivation required to get the most from the session. I do not believe in going through the motions, I believe in hard work and extra effort, as this is what brings about the best results.

Training should be hard but it should also be fun and you should complete every session feeling like you gave a committed effort, feeling tired and proud of yourself and looking forward to the next session!

Client Success Story

"Brett is truly a highly qualified personal trainer who has helped me with my fitness endeavors. He has immense knowledge in all aspects of training and does not waste time in getting you to where you want to be. Brett is tough but patient enough to help you with your personal goals. I have trained with him specifically for strength and conditioning such as boxing and HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training).

What I enjoy is that he works out with me and not just tells me how to do the moves. There are two kinds of trainers out there; those who dictate and those who participate - if you are looking for the latter, Brett is the perfect personal trainer for you. You better bring your A game if you're planning on training with him because he is the real deal! "

Brett is extremely knowledgeable, kind and caring. I have a lot of minor yoga injuries and he knows exactly how to help me have an excellent workout while staying safe. He always mixes it up and I am never bored. He also respects the aging process and offers exercises and challenges that are functional and support everyday life movements. I can't speak highly enough about his professionalism, wisdom as well as his interest in helping me get and stay strong!

It took us, me and my husband, a long time to find a good personal trainer for our two kids (Mary 10Y& Youssef 8Y), But I can say we were so lucky to come across BRETT POTTS 's info on Google and we didn't hesitate to contact him right away especially after we read all of the great reviews about him. It's been more than 6-7 months now with Coach Brett, and we are still experiencing the same level, even higher every time we see him, enthusiastic, professionalism, organizing, vast experience in the field, best advices that always hit the spot, and on the top of that his funny and kind spirit that made my kids love their fitness lessons with Coach Brett, never argue to spend more time on court exercising, to my surprise 😀. Since they started their fitness lessons with Coach Brett, there was a great impact on both of my kids, especially on their running and speed and affected them tremendously on how they play their games. If you are looking for a great personal trainer, with great experience and very professional, it would not be better than BRETT POTTS at Factor 11 Fitness, he is the one. Brett Potts is the best when to comes to personal training and fitness. Thank you Coach Brett a lot for all your faithfulness, honesty and professionalism.

Brett Potts is a BEST IN CLASS fitness trainer. I've worked with him for the past 6 months as a "Pre-K" beginner and already see a big difference. I stand taller, I'm stronger and I'm much more disciplined. He listened to my specific goals and made a plan based around those goals. He took time to learn what my ability level was and worked along side me to get better each session. I am excited for the next 6 months and would strongly recommend him to friends and family.
