I've met with a number of personal trainers, and it's exceedingly difficult to find someone that's friendly, knowledgeable, and organized. George is all of those things. I meet with him twice a week. He pushes me hard every single time. I highly recommend working with George.

Baron helped get me set up with one of his trainers. So far the experience has been great. They were super flexible with my schedule and Cory has really given me motivation to work hard. I'm seeing the results already! Thank you!!

Anthony is awesome. He has great communication, designs tough yet effective workouts, always has a positive, upbeat attitude (even when under the weather!), and he is incredibly supportive! The gym is unique in that it doesn't feel like one of those massive 24 Hour Fitness behemoths that lack in the community department. God's Gym is very community oriented. Everyone supports one another, and it is really nice to see familiar faces every time I'm in the gym. The trainers want you to succeed and are not just in it to collect money. They legitimately want you to reach your goals, and that gets me through the grueling workouts 3 times/week. The equipment might seem obsolete at first glance. However, this is the kind of gym I imagine hardcore, loyal bodybuilding athletes go to train. Rocky Balboa would train at this gym whereas the scary Russian dude would be at Equinox (Rocky wins the fight in the end!). If you are looking for a no-frills, authentic gym experience, God's Gym is definitely a great place to go. I have only been training at this gym, but I look forward to sticking with it in the long run. Plus, they offer multiple training packages for all types, and it's very affordable. I'll see you at God's Gym!

Evan & his team are really awesome! I highly recommend them because they listened to my needs, customized my workouts and communicate really well. The trainers are super friendly and are always checking on how you feel specifically with any injuries. They are all friendly and make you feel welcome. Try them out!

Gerard is the trainer of trainers, he has stamina, strength, and balance in training me. I am older, and I need to be watched for my strengths and weaknesses. He knows nutrition as well, and combines the training with that skill, which makes him exceptional. He's tough and clear about body building.

I was looking for a personal trainer for my SO as a Christmas present since he was having trouble getting motivated to get back into shape. This was my first time using Thumbtack and by some stroke of luck I found Aaron – he was exactly what I/we needed! Aaron was able to train with him over the course of a few months and was very flexible with my SO's busy schedule. He also was able to meet at a public park near our flat so everything was super easy and convenient (no excuses!) My SO is diabetic so it's very important for him to look after his diet and general health and Aaron definitely helped steer him in the right direction with advice on both diet and exercise. He also pushed him the right amount in terms of physical ability. I think the best part about training with Aaron is that my SO was able to learn a lot about his problem areas (flexibility, etc.) and use those lessons outside the personal training sessions. I would definitely recommend Aaron, he's a nice but tough guy!

I've worked with other personal trainers in the past. But my experience with John exceeded my expectations for several reasons. Upon meeting him I felt quickly at ease. He was able to quickly assess my physical ability and pushed me just enough past my comfort level. I had an amazing workout! He was very encouraging and positive towards me. It was very obvious he was extremely knowledgeable not only in training but he also came up with a detailed strategy to help me reach my fat loss goals especially with my nutrition. I feel very confidant in his ability to help me. I also know he will keep me free from injury. He exceeded my expectations. It was the best experience I've had with any personal trainer.

This is the perfect place to come to get fit. My usual MO is sign up for fitness classes or trainers, get pushed really hard and give up in a week or two. Youniquely has a different style from other trainers, bootcamps and fitness classes I have taken. The training is truly uniquely fitted to your needs and accelerated or decelerated based on how you are doing and whether you want to or not. This is the difference between buying a dress that is mass-produced vs getting a custom fitted gown!!

Very professional and great trainer. I was initially going to only sign up for one package of sessions but after my first group of sessions, I realized that John has more to offer than just training me on how to exercise. He's great on monitoring my nutrition and ensuring I actually eat. I interviewed a number of trainers but felt most comfortable with John and glad I did. I would recommend him to anyone....

It's an exceptional experience to have someone be "team you" from the moment you meet them. Kenny is your number one supporter and your greatest challenger from the moment you commit to your journey. He definitely has the knowledge and the experience to get you to your fitness and health goals, but he has the heart too. You may not "like" him all the time but you will love your results if you trust this trainer and his process

What would I do without Gretchen?! She has been a true partner on my weight loss journey. I started with a plan to see her for 10 sessions, but she’s so great that I’ve lost count of how many sessions we have had. My new plan is to work with her indefinitely. She’s incredibly kind, non-judgmental, and knows exactly how to customize workouts to get results. I feel stronger every week, and am continuing to lose weight at a steady pace. She’s completely changed how I feel about exercise!

I've been training with David for about 5 weeks now. I decided to train with David initially because I felt like he listened to my goals and he sounded like he had a lot of experience. He was the first person I interviewed but I remembered that he was the most humble and down to earth, and I had a feeling I'd be comfortable training with him. All the men trainers I interviewed talked to me like I had two brain cells, and I found David to be the most up front and honest. My goal is to lose weight, tone up and to strengthen my left shoulder for outrigger canoeing. So far, I am noticing a huge difference with my left shoulder. Its stronger and it no longer bothers me when I go paddling or perform certain exercises. Its still not 100% in strength but has gotten a lot stronger through training. All our sessions are pretty different and varied. I never know what to expect from David, which is good. I get bored at the gym because I love the outdoors, but David keeps it interesting. David pushes me when he thinks I'm slacking off, which often times, he is mostly right about.... I need someone to push me or I will slack off, which is probably a good reason to hire a trainer. David goes out of his way to make it work for his clients. He genuinely cares about his clients and loves what he does. I can tell by the excellent service he provides for his clients. My personal belief is that its important to practice what you preach, and David is a trainer that is in great physical condition, and knows what he is doing. I personally did not want to hire a personal trainer at the local gym that looked like they needed training themselves... I highly recommend David as a personal trainer. Due to his diverse background, I believe he would be a great fit for many.

Mohamed is the best trainer I have ever trained with. I have trained with a number of other trainers before but no one as good as Mohamed. He genuinely cares about his clients and wants us to see results which is why he checks in daily to see how I am feeling. He is an all in one trainer, in the sense he not only helped me get fit physically but also helped me become positive/strong mentally. He saw that I was working out with him but was not happy mentally (job situation) but he helped me deal with it. He such a positive person with a lot to offer. His workouts are awesome, he challenges me every time I see him. I am doing workouts that I have never done before or even knew I could do. I definitely see a lot of results after I started working out with him. I would recommend him to everyone!

Cassie has been invaluable to me and my fitness. Not only is she an amazing trainer that pushes me with varied and challenging routines. She also is working with me to address my nutrition and has extensive expertise on both side of the equation of the interaction of exercise and food. I am on a solid path to health as a result of Cassie's support. The studio is great, clean and has a wonderful atmosphere.

So far we have met 3 times. 2 on exercise training, 1 for a massage. And, he is right on cue! I pat myself on the back to have made the right choice (for my first time ever) to have a personal trainer. I won't add any photos (yet) but, in a couple of months, (I'm sure) I'll be able to share the "before" and "after"...photos.

Cindy's experience and professionalism really shows during our first consultation and workout. Cindy addressed my muscle imbalance with my hips and shoulders. After 3 sessions with Cindy, I've already started feeling some improvements with my movements. Her workouts are challenging. She knows when to push me when I needed and adjust to my needs. I like her coaching and positive encouragement and a good personality. I've sample 4 other trainers before meeting with Cindy. All 4 trainers put me through the same workout right away with benching & squats. Cindy was different and I was sold right away.

I’ve been training with Herman for almost 3 years now, and believe he is one of the most experienced & committed trainers around. I started training 4-5 times a week and really enjoyed the variety & challenge he put into the personal one-on-one session. Herman are fun to work with and he pushed you to the limit to achieve your goal.

Matt is working with me twice a week on strength training especially for my core. He is very knowledgeable, professional, and very pleasant to work with. He is patient yet on each machine or exercise he frequently asks me if I can go up on weight, stretch further, etc. He creates a varied routine for me & I enjoy the sessions. Matt is always looking out for my safety & guides me as to proper form. He always takes into account my specific weak areas. He is flexible w scheduling. I've worked with three very good trainers however, I feel I've made the most progress toward my goals with Matt. I look forward to my sessions with Matt & my mind/body feel good when I go home. I know I'm in good, professional, experienced hands.
