JJ and I have started an intense workout regimen that quite frankly is kicking my a@%... but is exactly what I need to get back into shape both in muscle tone and cardiovascular stamina. He is at once approachable and friendly, he doesn't shout but will hold you to pushing yourself as far as you can go, and then a little more. If you are committed to getting into shape, I HIGHLY recommend meeting up with JJ. He is also extremely knowledgeable regarding nutrition and will literally answer any nutrition questions I have as often as I have them throughout the day via text in a very quick manner. I also really love the variety of workouts he has led me through: weigh training, intense cardio, interval training, boxing/martial arts... I'm pretty convinced he can do anything. Three things you should know: 1. You will sweat... a lot! 2. You will be sore... really sore. 3. You will have a good time through it.
OJ is 1 of the best personal trainers I've ever come into contact with. For starters, your initial meeting is a workout created to personalize your strengths and weaknesses for future sessions. Afterwards, he speaks with you regarding your target goals, time frame, ideal weight etc. Meanwhile, he's compiling a special profile just for you in his computer. He sends weekly updates on your progress like: body fat percentage and weight loss/gain. In addition, he also sends motivational text messages during the week. He really is the most professional personal trainer I've ever encountered. I'm just 3 weeks into my training sessions and I'm already seeing results. Thanks OJ!
Great first training session! Very informative and personable , looking forward to my next session!
When I first decided to start working out with a personal trainer, I looked online for personal trainers in Pasadena. I ultimately decided to go with Hugo based on all of the positive reviews I read of him on here. Since the reviews initially helped me make a decision on choosing Hugo as my personal trainer, I just had to leave my own review. Before committing to train with Hugo, he offered me an introductory deal so that I could experience working out with him. The first couple sessions he evaluated my strength, endurance, and overall physical ability. Once my fitness level and goals were established, Hugo set up a training program and nutritional plan for me. He begins every session by explaining and demonstrating the exercises in the circuit. He also clarifies and demonstrates the importance of proper form, which makes it really easy for me since I'm a visual learner. At any point during the exercise if I forget to use proper form, Hugo reminds me and encourages me throughout. He is very good at helping me understand which muscles each exercise is working out. I like how during every session, he is focused, patient, and motivates me to make sure I'm giving it my all. His professionalism and friendliness make it all that much more of a positive experience training with him. I've been training with Hugo for about three months now, and I can say that I'm truly happy with my results so far. My strength and endurance have greatly increased since our first session. I've noticed my body fat decrease and my muscle mass increase. I also feel much better when I'm exercising and eating healthy, it has greatly helped with my anxiety. I definitely plan on continuing to train with Hugo. I'm excited to see how my fitness level and physique continue to progress. I'm glad that I chose Hugo as my personal trainer, it is obvious that he loves what he does and cares about his clients. I definitely recommend Hugo for anyone looking for a personal trainer, you will not regret it!
Paul is an extremely professional, friendly and helpful trainer! He is experienced and knows what he is doing. He gives out meal plans and excercises that is suitable for my level. I have been training with him for three months now, results are obvious and satisfying! I am really happy with Paul and would recommend him with no doubts!
I have hired Manuk as my personal trainer because I'm Sweatin' for the Wedding. My wedding is in a couple of months and after searching for several private instructors I picked Manuk. Why? Because he guaranteed me results in a healthy way. No gimmicks. I've been training with Manuk for a little over 2 months and I have lost a healthy 15 pounds! I feel so energetic after workouts and Manuk is there to motivate me for every step, every jump, every mountain climber, every push up I do. Manuk is also flexible with his schedule which is always a plus for someone who is busy planning a wedding! He also keeps track of my food log. He educates me on the numbers I should aim for my nutrients and calories. Overall I've seen AMAZING results with Manuk and I can not wait to see my results in the next few months. Thank you Manuk for getting me motivated again!!!!
I've been working with Gabriel at DeVine Physiques for a little over 2 months now. Having been senior editor for a personal-training and group-fitness training magazine in years passed, I had some definite criteria in mind when looking for someone to help me overcome my difficulties with diet-plan adherence and learning quintessential moves that I was afraid to try due to injury potential if performed incorrectly. Upon meeting Gabriel for our free consultation, we reviewed my history with diet, exercise and past injuries, as well as my current goals vs. efforts I'd tried on my own to reach them. He asked the right questions, but more importantly he let me talk about these topics in-depth when needed and actively listened. He did not have a cookie-cutter approach in mind... he was looking for ways to optimize a plan to promote diet/exercise-program adherence and injury prevention relative to my goals with a conscious consideration as to my physical characteristics and limitations at that time (flexibility limits, minor chiropractic concerns, native structural particulars such as being bow-legged, flat-footed, etc.). The plan I brought to the table was "burn and build": start with a goal of losing 25 pounds (cutting), per the suggestion of my physician ... and then shift gears to building muscle on top of that new leaner frame (bulking) --- with cycles of both going forward from there. Gabriel worked with me to develop that idea into action. He advised me re: the importance of tracking calories and made suggestions as to apps that could be leveraged to aide in that often-tedious endeavor. He set me up with his customized trainer/client app and I connected MyFitnessPal to it to funnel data re: my daily nutritional and hydration tracking to him. We've started with two 50-minute workout sessions per week for now. Our goal has been to keep me below 2,000 calories per day... and his strong suggestion (not mandate, mind you... very important) to track everything has opened my eyes as to the caloric and nutritional content of everything I *was* eating (holy crap!) and have currently shifted to eating (oh thank God!). Coupled with drinking at least 96 oz. of water per day (also tracked) to help keep the body hydrated and aide with hunger as my body adjusted to the caloric reduction, my prior junk-food habit/addiction has gone away --- which, as I write this, had not fully hit me re: how big of a deal that really is. I haven't thought of a soda or French fries, etc., in quite some time... instead, I've been trying to figure out just how many ounces of chicken breast are on my plate at XYZ restaurant so I can get an accurate calorie figure for my tracking. ;-) The physical results have been *much* more than I initially expected. In roughly 2 months I've gone from 225 pounds at 5'11" to 204, and now we're looking at what to do once I hit my 200-pound goal. The current verdict is to go for another 10 pounds and see where I land and how I feel before shifting gears to more-intense focus on building/bulking. My cardio efficiency has increased greatly, as I no longer feel like I'm going to fall over going up and down flights of stairs. And whereas I was wearing XL shirts when I walked in the door, I recently shifted to L for the first time in a very long while. I've actually started to look forward to shopping for new clothes and don't dread going into fitting rooms and facing the mirror --- even the ones with horrible lighting. LOL For me, the key to success has been a combination of really wanting to do this coupled with Gabriel's friendly, positive reinforcement. He always points out when I've broken through barriers in my workouts with him, and has schooled me in very understandable terms re: basic anatomy, form, how things such as sitting and driving affect our flexibility and posture over time, etc. Gabriel's never mandated I do anything... instead, he's *encouraged* food tracking, hydration, caloric reduction, showing up for all our sessions, etc., couching those actions as being the bedrock for achieving the goals that *I* walked in the door with. The responsibility lies with *me* to do the work in the exercise programming he sets up for each session as well as the between-sessions work (which is actually *more* important in the long run). His welcoming, friendly, encouraging advisement regarding form and function as we work together in those sessions helps me keep moving forward progressively, efficiently and safely. We developed an easy rapport quite quickly, but Gabriel's very good about keeping us on task ... all while allowing me to catch my breath and regroup between sets or cardio sprints. There is no militaristic aggressive "go go go!!!" kind of atmosphere, but rather a "when you're ready... you've got this... you can and will because you are" approach to gently psyching me up when I might be feeling a bit of a dip in my gas tank. And when I'm actually lifting -- particularly if we're escalating weight to a new level -- he knows when to turn on a little-bit-more-"cheerleader" type of encouragement to help me push through... again, though, all centered on the idea that this is *me* working through *this moment* aiming for completion of *this movement* while being able to trust that he's there to help me make adjustments for optimal safe execution and spot me should I run into an exertion failure --- which is pretty rare, given his method of having rebuilt and reinforced the infrastructure of my core, lower back and legs with moves that I always wanted to try but was scared to do (deadlifts, in particular). He's walked me through those learning curves and longstanding hesitation to the other side where I'm much more confident and actually making marked progress in form + how much weight I can lift. I'm doing things at 43 years of age that I'd always been scared to do. If this has been my experience at the 2-month mark of working with Gabriel, I can't imagine where we'll be at the 4-month mark... or the 6-month mark! This has definitely been one of the most important and positive investments I've made in myself, and definitely the most physical-fitness progress I've made all around since having worked with a personal-trainer roommate who schooled me on basics in my mid-20s. The body usually changes quickly in your 20s, and I was afraid that I'd have a slow tedious climb in my 40s... but Gabriel's coaching (and my diligence; very important factor) have made that climb much faster and fulfilling than I thought would be possible. I look better. I feel better. I eat better. I move better. I *am* better. Other people have noticed ... and *I* have noticed -- not just on the surface, but inside as well -- and I want to keep moving forward to see what working with Gabriel holds in store around the bend.
Great training sessions!, Aaron is very dedicated and knowledgeable when it comes to targeting a specific muscle, mitigating injuries, improving strength, proper meal intakes and overall fitness. One thing I liked is that during my first session he evaluated my strength and weaknesses, then targeted my work outs based on that. Aaron's sessions are totally worth it and I would recommend them to anyone. He is very professional and will push you by encouraging you, if you're looking for an encouraging instructor and for results, you'll definitely not regret this...he definitely stands out from any other trainer!
I have been working with Sandy for about two months. She has been fantastic to deal with. She is knowledgeable, motivating, and her work-outs kick butt!! Sandy has been very flexible in scheduling appointments and she is always on time. The sessions she has created for me have been an excellent mix of cardio, strength training, and AB work. None of the sessions have been boring! I highly recommend her services!!
Meghan Aro is an embodiment of beauty and physical strength. She always inspired me to go beyond my limits and with her guidance and training, I became not only physically but also mentally strong. I have lost 30 lbs, completed a 26.2mile marathon, and am currently training for a half Ironman. Meghan is an exceptional trainer who educates her clients about their bodies and provides not just exercise but also nutritional advice. She customizes and centers her workouts around the client. Every day is a new challenge. I strongly recommend Meghan to all my friends and loved ones.
Gil is a wonderful trainer! He is the perfect balance between motivating and fun. Start training with him and I'm sure you won't regret it!
Judy, Is an amazing fitness training. Very amazing, and impressive with her workout programs that she comes up with. A simple, dumbbells, and jump rope can turn into an 8 week program by Judy's 25 plus years of experience. When I joined Judy's gym, I was bought into another levee of working out that I did not knew exist, that helped me out getting into the fire department. Judy does go above and beyond for her clients, every single one of them that trains in her gym. Like I said, her programs are just that amazing, that Jillian Michaels can learn from her. That is right you read that correctly, Jillian Michaels can learn from Judy, that is how amazing the quality of going to Judy's gym is, that it is just beyond amazing. I highly recommend that everyone that is reading this to join Judy's gym, even just for 3 months and you will see a very big difference with your body for the better part.
I actually met her thru a friend of mine, who was one of her close friends. I had hired several personal trainers but until Mami showed me her own training routines I was never happy. I wanted to get some good toned butt and get rid of my belly fat, after doing her routines for just 4 weeks, I started noticing my body is really rocking hot, and not only me, but all my friends and coworkers noticed the change on my body. She is a multi talented woman who can also listen to others when they need someone to talk to. I still do her routines and I could never be happier about the way I look!! Thanks, Mami!
During my eight months training with Carlos I achieved my goals of relieving back and knee pain as well as increasing my strength and confidence. Carlos tailored my workouts which are always full of variety and a lot of fun. He ensures that my technique is always correct to avoid any injuries. Carlos is extremely reliable and punctual - always set up and ready to start training ahead of time, with an exercise routine planned. I left each session feeling exhilarated! He gives you the tools to grow outside of the gym by giving you training regimes and diet suggestions. Carlos's professionalism and passion for what he does is second to none. If you are looking for a personal trainer in the West LA/Hollywood area then Carlos is the trainer you have been looking for!! If I had not moved across town I would still be training with Carlos. I have been unable to find a workout comparable to training in the gym with Carlos.
Jim is great to work with as he personalizes the work out routine to fit both ability and key areas of focus for the client. During the training sessions he encourages me and challenges me to do more in order to optimize our time together.
I have recently started training with Eddie, not the first trainer I have had, although definitely the best to date. Finding a personal trainer who makes you feel comfortable enough to reveal your biggest flaws, is most definitely a challenge. Eddie has patience, taking the time to explain and demonstrate in a comprehensive manner what YOU are doing and why. He has a serene demeanor while still being regimented and effective, paying attention to his clients needs and goals. Hands down, he masters the combination of being effective and supportive, not an easy feat but he masters it with grace.
I love Jackie’s blend of Pilates, HIIT, strength training, low-impact cardio and other techniques. I’m seeing great results- much better tone, and more strength and stamina- and her positive attitude plus the variety in our workouts keep me motivated and energized. I can see and feel huge improvements in my core strength after just a couple months! I’m so happy to be working with her!
Very professional. Understands client's requirement and gives the right training / coaching. We had to reschedule a few times but Daniel has been very flexible. One of the best coaches we've had in the last 10 years.
I’m the five time winner of “The Toughest Cop Alive”. But After years and years of training competition I had suffered number of injuries the reduced my ability to perform or even to live a normal life without limping and taking excessive amounts of pain killers and anti inflammatory medications. At first i was very skeptical but he was able to diagnose and fix a lot of the movement issues I had many of which I didn’t know were present.
I found Amber when a mutual friend of ours recommended her for what I was looking for with my personal goals (lose weight, get strong and healthy). I wanted to do crossfit but I was too intimidated to go into a crossfit gym because I felt like my fitness wasn't up to par, so I chose to do one on one training with Amber. She was extremely friendly and approachable and obviously loves what she does. She helped me modify the movements for my injuries and my level of fitness. She also helped me make a training plan that I could do on my own. With Amber's help, I've just been able to join a crossfit gym and not feel like I shouldn't be there. Unlike other trainers I've had, I don't dread seeing Amber before we work out, I look forward to it!
Fre is the best trainer I’ve had in the past 5 years. He is a consummate professional. Fre will always tailor your training session to your very own specifications. More importantly, he has changed my life to living a more healthy and active lifestyle.
