America’s Favorite Trainer: Monte Sanders


“After losing 15 pounds, I felt a lump in my breast, so Monte’s program saved my life.”
“He has changed my life in so many ways. I have lost 45 pounds and have been able to keep it off. I have become a confident and healthy person.”
“Because of Monte Sander’s training, I have gained my normal blood pressure back and I am no longer pre-diabetic.”
“I have woken up at 4:15 a.m. three days a week for six years now, and because of Monte Sanders. I have him to thank for being healthier and in better shape than I was 20 years ago.”
These are just a few of the outpouring of responses Burnalong received from the search for America’s Favorite Trainer. Monte is living proof that a great coach doesn’t just help you fit workouts into your life; a great coach transforms your life.  Monte Sanders, CEO and Founder of MBS Fitness Lab is the 2017 winner of America’s Favorite Trainer.

Where it All Began: Monte Sanders Training Ray Lewis and Ed Reed

Monte’s most notable work has been on the football field, training his NFL Hall of Fame client, Ray Lewis and soon-to-be Hall of Fame client, Ed Reed, from the Baltimore Ravens.  Shortly after Ray Lewis led The Baltimore Ravens to their 2000-2001 Super Bowl victory, Monte was introduced to Ray and they began exercising together. The first workout was grueling — to say the least — spanning the entire day, targeting cardio, weight training, endurance, core work, and more.

At the end of it Ray looked at Monte and said…

 “I want to tell you something. I have never met anyone who finished a workout with me. I’ve worked out with hundreds of thousands of people. Teammates all over. The University of Miami… everywhere. No one has ever finished a workout with me. I’ve got to have you with me all the time.”

— Ray Lewis

And so the unbreakable relationship between a trainer and a client began.

They set big goals and made not only exercise but the balance of mind, body, and spirit, the number one priority.

For fourteen years, Monte has been Ray’s Personal Trainer, working out with him during the season and traveling the world with him in the offseason to keep his mind and body in top shape for the NFL football season.

Ed Reed soon joined the workouts, and together the three of them continued the grueling and intense training for years to come.

Monte and Ray continue to workout together each week, and every summer they inspire and train top high school athletes from across the country in The Under Armour Football Camp in Florida.

But, Monte isn’t only a celebrity trainer to Ray Lewis and Ed Reed. He found a very deep calling to help people who need it the most, both in his community through in-person bootcamps and nationwide through online exercise on Burnalong.

Helping Everyday People Achieve Their Goals

Monte works with corporations, public institutions (like the Baltimore Police), and individuals. He runs wildly popular bootcamp in the Baltimore, Maryland area that attracts people from NFL cheerleaders to new moms to women and men in their 40s, 50s, 60s, and 70s.

His focus is to help everyone — regardless of where they are in their fitness journey — achieve their health and wellness goals.

Monte’s impact on the lives of those he trains could not be more evident in the responses Burnalong received from the search for America’s Favorite Trainer.

Tears filled our eyes as we read response after response about how Monte has helped people lose weight and keep it off, get off medication, lower their risk for chronic illnesses like diabetes and heart disease, and gain strength, stamina, and confidence.
