If you have a goal, everyone at Markshane's Shape up Studio will help you achieve it! In March of 2012 I was a 312 pound wife and mother of 4, and I had a lot of health issues. I was on the razor's edge for diabetes and I was recovering from a broken back. I had just finished my 6th round of physical therapy and had been contemplating weight loss surgery. After meeting Markshane and seeing how truley motivated he was to help people (of any level of fitness) get healthy, I scheduled my first appointment. Markshane took the time to figure out my problems with food and scheduled an eating plan for me to kick start my metabolism into high gear. When I started my first workout with Markshane, I was hooked! I Have worked with 4 of Markshane's trainers (Vince, Marcus, Isreal, and Dan) as well as Markshane, and each and every one of them have the same upbeat positivity as Markshane. There is no barking drill seargent trying to intimidate you into doing exercises that you physically are unable to do. Instead, they become your personal fan club. Each workout is another chance to amaze them into cheering you on. In six months I lost 58 pounds and my waist went from 61.5 inches to 42 inches. In 14 months I lost 112 pounds. Thanks to the entire crew of ShapeUp Studio, I was wearing a size 12 for the first time in 20 years! The threat of diabetes is gone and I feel great! When my husband was up for chief, I brought him in to train with Markshane's team. He lost 45 pounds (in 5 months) and is now the fitness leader for his department!
I have had trainers before. However, never one like Megan, who cares beyond the workout. Her overall wellness lifestyle is motivating and inspirational. Her classes are filled with support and drive. I like that she is not a pushover or a Drill Sargent. Most of all she knows her stuff. She is always reading and learning, adding more credentials to her resume...and keep classes fresh and different. What she has created is a community of wellness with her blog, videos, and app. I would recommend Megan to anyone who wants to make a positive change in their life.
Working with Rich was mind blowing! I have always been an athlete but training with Rich took me to the next level. Rich really takes the time to work with you sonyou actually learn how to reach your full potential. It doesn’t matter If your goal is to lose that 10-15 extra lbs or get ready do a bodybuilding competition Rich is the man to go see.
Lana is an AMAZING personal trainer! I've been training with Lana for a little over a month, every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. Her assessments of what you need to accomplish goals are exactly on target. Lana designed a program for me that has been working to help me achieve my goals. She has a way of challenging you that is very successful and rewarding, results are guaranteed. Lana knows what she is doing but is also smart and fun to work out with. She will push you without putting you down and knows how to challenge you to reach your goals. You'll be challenged right away and feel the burn, but somehow keep going back for more. Lana is always cheerful and motivating, and has the ability to constantly change up the routine so that it never gets boring. I'm so thankful for Lana, she not only helped me physically but also mentally.
I have been working with Wes for a couple of weeks now, and I have to say that he has been outstanding. In our initial meeting, we discussed my goals and what I was looking for with my training sessions. He immediately crafted a workout regimen which would allow me to attain my goals. He is excellent at pushing you to reach your full potential. I have had some injuries in the past, and Wes has deisgned programs/routines that allow me to get results without aggravating those areas. I also have a schedule that can be unpredictable. Wes has been great about being flexible with workout times to accomodate me; and without penalizing me financially like some other trainers I've had in the past. Wes is a great guy, and I look forward to continuing to work with him. It is without reservation that I recommend him to anyone looking to improve their physical health.
As a former college athlete, I have worked with many trainers. I consider Dustin to be among the best. He is very knowledgeable, understands body mechanics, remarkably responsible and flexible. I highly recommend him.
I've trained with Lisa for 2 years, initially for rehab and continued on for strength and weight loss, and I would highly recommend Lisa as a Personal Trainer and Nutritionist!
Allison, is the perfect trainer for me. She challenges and inspires me to move beyond my current ability, while also respecting where I am the day we train together. Her motivation is extremely encouraging. She listens to my needs and patiently and thoroughly answers questions and explains how to properly and safely do poses. I am truly falling in love with yoga and feel very inspired to commit to a consistent practice. I cherish her kindness, gentleness and acceptance. I highly recommend her!
I have always worked out, primarily at group classes like Barry's Bootcamp. While I felt in shape, I saw little change in strength and overall fitness. After interviewing with several trainers, I went to Tom looking to see actual results, an improvement in strength and for nutrition advice. I have been working out with Tom since April, and am in the best shape of my life. His workouts are challenging, and personalized to my goals. I have developed more strength, confidence, and overall fitness in 8 months then I had in 3 years in group classes. I think the most valuable part of Tom's training has been the nutrition advice. His meal "plan" (and I hesitate to call it that) is easy to understand and follow, encourages REAL, nourishing food, and most importantly, balance. Unlike my experience with other trainers, I have never felt hungry or restricted, and have never had a better relationship with food. As a bonus, he can also be funny. I highly recommend Tom!
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!
Lisa is experienced and knowledgeable. She brings a lot more to the table then most trainers. She is also a health coach and helps with healthy eating.
I am quite the picky client and when searching for a personal trainer I went thru 10 trainers before I was lucky enough to find Colby. Many people can say they are a "personal trainer" however just because you have the title doesn't mean you are good at it. I can honestly say Colby is THE BEST. Not only has he motivated me to do things I would of never tried on my own. He is also helping me reach my weight loss and fitness goals. I know that with someone like him by my side I will reach every goal I have set for myself. Besides being a wonderful person/trainer he genuinely cares about his clients and when you meet him you will see that for yourself.
I've been training with Zack for the past few months, and I'm so pleased with my progress! I have bad knees, and other trainers in the past have not been able to work my legs without killing my knees. Zack makes every workout intense enough to really feel the burn, without pushing my knees too far. He knows how to push me with each exercise, keep me using correct form, and keep me motivated, all without being intimidating. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a great trainer who will give them results!
Candon has taught me so many different exercises and how to perform them properly without hurting myself. I know what I need to do at the gym, but Candon helps keep me accountable. He pushes me more than I would ever push myself and has me do things I never imagined I could do. It's hard, but I'm always really proud of myself. I'm a nurse and we are very prone to get injured from lots of pushing, pulling, and lifting patients. I see a lot of my coworkers getting back or shoulder injuries. I know I'm getting stronger and I can see the difference in my muscle tone. I like that Candon is creative. I hate running. Im sure he knows that lol. So I appreciate that he doesn’t make me do a lot of running. Instead, he finds other ways to get my heart rate up and make it more enjoyable. I noticed that some personal trainers can be intimidating. Candon is really friendly and approachable. Prior to seeing Candon, I never exercised. Now I always look forward to my next session. Having appointments set up with him keeps me accountable. It’s hard for me to hit the gym on my own because I always find other things to do. But knowing that I have an appointment with him makes it a lot easier… No excuse for me not to exercise!
Roger know his stuff. As someone with medical conditions that affect my mobility and strength on a daily basis, I need a trainer that will adjust his workout routine to accomodate my body. He's able to think quickly and create exercises that will strengthen my muscles without hurting my joints.

John Burson has been my fitness trainer for over 12 years. He is highly competent and very professional, but what I like best is how attentive he is in customizing the workout specifically for me. Over many years, he has always fine tuned each exercise to best match my sometimes changing needs and wishes regarding my fitness. Thanks also to his very friendly attitude, every workout with him is always fun and enjoyable, never boring. Last but not least he is also very reasonable with his rates and flexible to accommodate my schedule. I would recommend John as a rare example of an ideal fitness trainer.
I did a 2 week trial with Adam, and in just those 2 weeks I could feel a difference in my body. The Workouts he had me doing were great! From rope slams, Trx cables and Bear crawls, Adam had me doing everything I needed to be loosing fat and gain muscle. He also recommends a dietary plan. This was great, he provided a shopping list and snacks that I should eat during the workouts to get the best results. Adam is a great trainer and he knows his stuff! i would highly recommend anyone who is trying to live a healthier lifestyle to get in touch with Adam.
Stubbs is a dedicated, knowledgeable, and conscientious trainer and person. Rather than receiving a cookie-cutter workout and simple form checks like I have from past trainers, Stubbs paid special attention to exactly what I was and wasn't capable of then created workouts tailored around my capabilities in order to get me into the best shape of my life. He puts his full effort into achieving your fitness goals inside and outside of the gym. Not only did I make strength gains, but his focus on posture and mobility has eradicated all my back, hip, and knee pain that made me fear working out in the first place. Take advantage of his skills before he gets booked up!!!
Bobbie is by far one of the best trainers in San Diego, hands down. She's an experienced trainer who's sincere about her craft & continues to educate herself & her staff with what's best for themselves as trainers & for their clients as well. She "Consistently" motivates, inspires, & encourages, you to be your best. Bobbie's a rare gem who's not only a phenomenal trainer ... but, a wonderful person as well with a lot integrity. You won't be disappointed
I am so happy to have found a personal trainer who is extremely knowledgeable about the field and very patient with someone who is just getting into fitness. I have been training with Stacey for almost 2 months now and love that our workouts are challenging yet fun. Aside from the workouts, she has created a diet plan specific to me and my needs. My fitness goal is to lose weight and to tone. I am definitely confident that continuing my training and diet plan with Stacey will get me to my goal body! Thank you for all that you do!!
