Latest Review: My experience with Shape Up Studios was absolutely top notch! I am an avid action sports enthusiast (MTB, Surfing, skiing, climbing etc) and as a result suffered a series of knee and back injuries. Fortunately, none required surgery but I was barred from physical activity for the better part of 6 months. In short, I grew weaker and wider during that time. After extensive rehab with my physical therapists and light physical activity i felt i was ready for strength training to get back in shape and work to get strong for a solid winter. I got cleared by my physician and therapists to do so and started searching for good trainers. Enter Markshane and the team at shape up studios. Markshane took the time and effort to understand where I was coming from, the nature of my injuries and what my goals were. He has an impressive setup with which he can set a biometric baseline and share, in layman's terms, where you stand in a holistic fitness spectrum so you can set realistic goals. It was clear from my first appointment that I had found the right team. Once my goals were set, I was introduced to the person that was going to be working one on one with me for the next 3 months: Manny. To put it bluntly, Manny kicked my ass for 3 months, two times a week. He is a hell of a trainer with a good eye for form and a good sense of how to push his clients so they can get the most out of their workouts. I learned a great deal from this man about form and how to structure workouts to get the most out of them. He was extremely encouraging the entire time and made a point of customizing my workouts with a focus on functional strength that i could use in the activities I love. I went from being scared of a kettle bell swing during my first week to doing deadlifts with confidence and something resembling grace and good form. I lost 7lbs (not bad considering my 3 months included thabksgiving and the holidays) and my back has never felt stronger. Im stoked, my body feels great, and I'm extremely grateful for the work Manny, Markshane and the team put in to help me get my results. The gym itself has everything you could ask for and it has a great vibe. You always have the space to workout comfortably, it has all the bells and whistles, you dont feel judged, everyone is encouraging, and everyone is there to work hard for themselves. The good vibes are key as I feel many gyms have too much of a bro-ey edge to them. At the end of the day though, it comes down to you. How bad do you want it? It will still require hard work on your end, good discipline, good diet (my weakest point and the root cause of not having lost more weight than I could have) and more than anything, good attitude. Go out there and get it people! I'm off to enjoy winter for now but will most likely be back when the Krispy Kremes get the best of me! Disclaimer: if you are working out of any form of injury, consult IN DEPTH with your physician(s) and physical therapist(s) to determine whether you are ready for strength training and its inherent risks.

Latest Review: Rich was such an amazing investment in my life. I was 60lbs overweight and needed motivation and expert guidance to get this fat off! I am an ex college football player and figured I knew how to workout but just needed that push. So, I met each through a friend and let's just say what I thought I knew, I didn't. He showed me so many different exercises and the proper and safe way to reach my goals. His routines were ever changing and he kept it fun. His personality is great, he truly becomes your friend and coach. I lost the 60lbs in 8 months and I feel amazing. He truly is a life changer. His mind for training is one of a kind. The way he combines and create routines is something else and I have learned so much from him. I highly recommend him if you're looking for a trainer who will guide you step by step and give you the proper nutritional advice to reach your goals. He is a great person and trainer and you'll have so much fun along the way!

Latest Review: Dustin "IS" the best trainer!! He knows exactly how to MOTIVATE, ENCOURAGE, COMMUNICATE, and most importantly TRAIN his clients. Today was my first session, and while we were training he made sure that I was good. Each time I felt like calling it quits, his words and attitude kept me from quitting. For these reasons I will continue to Move Forward with Dustin, and I HIGHLY suggest everyone that is reading this review does the same and MOVE FORWARD with Dustin of course!!!!

Latest Review: If you are SERIOUS about becoming the best version of yourself, Jon Sanchez is the man for the job. I am a former Marine who specialized in High Intensity Tactical Training and he definitely gave me the best workouts of my life. He held me to a high standard and it’s hard to find trainers that will do that for the risk of losing them. He will encourage you and push you to better your health. He is also very flexible. I have a job where every week my hours are different and he was always flexible with my hours. I’d highly recommend to anyone no matter what level you are on. He will meet you where you are at with your fitness level and take you to the next level.

Latest Review: Candon is very knowledgeable about all aspects of a good workout - physiology, nutrition, personal weaknesses/challenges. In addition he is super to work with and encouraging along the way. It's great to know that I'm doing what is effective, rather than just random exercise that may or may not be effective - or worse yet, cause harm. Our workout sessions include a good variety of cardio, strength training, and stretching so it doesn't get boring. He is able to give me exercises and routines that address my personal goals and I know I work harder and more effectively with his guidance than I would do on my own.

Latest Review: Lana is a truly outstanding personal trainer. I have been working with her for over 5 years. She is knowledgeable and keeps up with the latest info & trends in the fitness space, continually adding to her repertoire. In addition to strength training (with weights), core work and aqua running / water fitness, we've started working with TRX (she's TRX certified too). Lana incorporates a scientific, yet fun approach and we train with heart rate monitors (optional), so we have a measure of fitness and strength progression and I am seeing definite results. She works around my injuries so that I am able to continue training consistently. She has developed a very personalized training plan for me, which she adjusts on an ongoing basis, as I progress. No cookie cutter programs here!!! AND, I am now fitter, stronger and more flexible than I have ever been. Lana walks the walk and is an amazing athlete herself. She is dedicated to my health & fitness and while she is always warm and encouraging, she is also firm & focused - always keeping me on track.

Latest Review: Sarah is an all-around fantastic trainer! She always shows up prepared and on time for your session, with a positive attitude. Sarah is very encouraging and helpful; she also is able to create specialized workout classes that are fit for your body and catered towards what you want to work on. Her group classes are also THE BEST. I love that everyone shows up enthusiastic about what Sarah has to offer; it is so motivating to be surrounded by tons of her clients working hard and getting excited about being strong and healthy. Staples Fitness is the way to go, whether you are in San Diego or just want online coaching! :)

Latest Review: I've been doing personal training since 2010 through many different trainers, my all time favorite was with Brittany. I went through a phase where I wasn't conditioned to training, had gained weight and wasn't use to lifting weights. The first time we trained together, I thought it was really weird but she made it of importance about my breathing and posture and didn't just get right back into lifting like I use to. A couple sessions later, I really actually felt a difference because she made it important to recondition myself and make sure that I breathe properly while I train! She not only made me feel physically fit, she was a great person to talk to, and made me feel great while I worked out and constantly pushed me to be a better person. I wouldn't ever want another trainer, and when I'm done with my break from training, Brittany and I are going to be back out there hitting those new PR's!
