I've had many trainers over the years and I can confidently say that OJ is by far one of, if not the best. First, he's extremely approachable and not intimidating. He makes you feel super comfortable and not self conscious which for most of us girls is critically important. Even though he works with top NBA/NFL athletes, he still makes you feel comfortable and special. He creates a program specifically based on your personal needs and goals while also educating you on some additional areas that might be beneficial as well. For me, I really just wanted to focus on my upper body and my cardio but he had a way to incorporate some lower body exercises within the program that complemented what we were doing. OJ is patient and extremely invested in making sure you achieve your goals. He is motivating without being pushy. But...he also knows how to push you to get the very best out of you. Lastly, OJ is constantly working on his craft. He's continually educating himself and his clients on the newest methods and most efficient ways of training, not a lot of trainers I've worked with do this. He's there for you and for someone like me who is all about relationships in business and in life this goes a long way. OJ gets my highest recommendation.
Kevin is very meticulous and caring. He is not a "cookie-cutter" trainer that treats everyone the same. He sets my workouts and goals to what works for me and is keenly focused on "training the body" not "breaking the body."
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!
Ted is extremely knowledgable about bodybuilding, the human body, and everything to do with bodybuilding competitions. I met him in the audience of a bodybuilding competition. I could tell that he really knew his stuff. He's been studying bodybuilding for 35 years now, that is rare to find in a trainer!! I could not believe how in shape and muscular he was when he told me his age. I thought to myself, "wow, he must be doing something right". He agreed to train me and I learned much more than I'd ever known about weightlifting and the workings of the muscles in the body. I will always be grateful for this knowledge, and I saw incredible results! I feel that I am stronger today than I've ever been and I owe this to Ted's guidance. His services are very reasonably priced, and he truly cares about you becoming your best self, he is also compassionate and trustworthy. He will help you grow and progress but he will not risk injury while doing it. He's very cautious and does not believe in pushing the body until it breaks, but rather, will show you the most efficient and smartest ways to reach your goals. He's a gem!
I have been training with Jobie for about 5 years. Great trainer!!! His knowledge of how the body is supposed to work, in my view is very important. I think that is why I do not get hurt while training. If I am doing something wrong he will correct my stance and or posture so I do not injure myself.
wonderful work ethic and super enthusiastic!! He and the other personal trainers that work for him are helping me to reach my weight and strength goals!! He and his team are dedicated, always on time and go above and beyond to deliver great service! :)
I'm currently working with Eric to gain strength and flexibility (and improve my overall health). He has been great! I've been seeing him twice a week for about a month, and look forward to continuing training with him. A couple of things that I really appreciate about Eric and his training sessions: - He was courteous of my budget from the start and let me know what was realistic to do within my budget - He explains every exercise in detail (proper form, where you should feel muscles working, how a spotter would interact with the client). This is important for me, because being a girl and not growing up in a gym I had no clue where to even begin. So this is laying a good foundation for the long run even beyond our training sessions together. Also, it makes the client feel more comfortable when they know in advance where the spotter will be assisting at all times. - Eric is always on time. Even at 5:30 AM. He has a client before me at 4:30 AM and is there for that too. - He's been very kind and flexible when I have to travel for work and is willing to adjust the days that we meet so that I still get my two sessions a week in. - He is looking out for you in the long run. There are so many times that I feel discouraged because I can't quite complete a set or my form isn't right because I get tired. He is always quick to remind me that those things come in time as I build up strength. And it's true-- each time I can do a few more and do it better than before. He sets realistic goals and knows that things do not come over night and he wants you to realize that too. Overall, I'm really pleased with how things have been going. It's not a fast process for some of us, but since first beginning I have seen that I have improved in strength and that my body is shaping up. He's a great guy and knows what he is doing. I appreciate that he uses a style that incorporates basic weight lifting and body strength exercises, things that I could realistically do at home or a gym to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Thanks Eric!
Mark is a great trainer!! He is different from other trainers. He can relate to his clients and makes you feel he's on the journey with you. I've never felt intimidated with him like I have with past trainers. He has made me feel better about myself. I'm feeling more energized,healthy and confident about myself. Oh and the food he cooks are so good and healthy so it has all helped me out tremendously on my journey to staying healthy and fit. If you want a trainer who can be a mentor and a friend not just some stone cold trainer then Mark is the guy for you!!
Aaron Valizan has been my brother, Shawn’s personal trainer and “life saver” for a couple years. Shawn was a NCAA two time Men's rings gymnastics champion, and was a personal trainer himself up until he had his 2 strokes. Shawn is only 55 years old. A few years ago, had two strokes which left him incompacitated and unable to: • Read • Remember anything • Walk on his own • Eat his meals without help • Make it to the bathroom • Remember where is living He has stayed at two Skilled Nursing Homes: San Marino Manor for 6 months Glendora Grand which is where Shawn has resided for two years. I decided that Shawn needed someone who could relate to his background and understand his illness and physical handicaps. It was very difficult for Shawn because he did have a vague memory of being a PT and thought he still had clients that he worked out with. I started researching Personal Trainers in his area and found Aaron Valizan. He was highly recommended, and I also found out he had 10 years of nursing experience in the hospital setting, so I set up a time for him to come out to Glendora Grand convalescent home to meet Shawn. They hit it off right away. Shawn was actually smiling for the first time in years. I started booking their appointments. Shawn showed progress after only a few weeks. Then, Shawn caught MRSA, which is a highly contagious disease. He was transported to Inter Community Hospital where he was put into an isolated department with a private room. Aaron visited Shawn (wearing scrubs, gloves and booties to protect him from contracting the disease). He immediately lifted Shawn’s morale which in turn got him to start to eat. The hospital staff was really impressed with how well he worked with Shawn. Aaron started organizing some training sessions for Shawn for when he returned to Glendora Grand. Within one month, he had Shawn out of the wheel chair and walking on his own (Shawn’s disease was gone). Every time Aaron walked into Shawn’s room, his fact lit up and he was ready to “go work out”. When Shawn was feeling better, Aaron decided to sign him up at a local gym, giving Shawn a lot more to look forward to do. His symptoms improved on a regular basis. He remembered that he had appointments at a gym and could not wait to go. I could not be more happy! Today, Shawn has improved on a regular basis. Aaron has kept up their appointments at the gym and coming by to work with him at Glendora Grand. Shawn looks forward to every appointment. Honestly, I have been so impressed with Aaron and thrilled with the amount of time and patience he takes to work with Shawn. I think we are beginning to see “The Light at The End of the Tunnel” and hope that Shawn will improve on a regular basis. I cannot thank Aaron enough for all that he has done for my brother. He has literally “saved his life”! Thank you, Aaron!! XOXO Patti Jenkins
Margo is a great personal trainer. He helped me get back to pre-baby body after 4 kids. Margo never gave up on me even when I wanted to quit on myself. He included a personal nutritional plan with my fitness training which none of the other personal trainers I've worked with provided. I highly recommend his services.
Jim is an excellent trainer. He has great rapport, and he's very creative and inventive in coming up with ways to build muscle and core strength and stamina . So far we've met three times, and I feel 100% better already - fatigued but with a feeling of accomplishment. I actually look forward to each workout because I know Jim will help me meet my goals. What I like about Jim the best, though, is something he does after the workout. He just texts a word of encouragement or a thumbs up or a note on how I did. I've worked out with many trainers in the past, and no one has done that. It's a great way to keep this 66 year old motivated. I highly recommend him.
Jacob trained me for 6 months and this being my first experience hiring a personal trainer, I was nervous about the experience. Jacob made me feel comfortable from the start and what I appreciated was the fact that he took the time to educate me about what the excersise or activity will accomplish. In addition, he performs a lot of different activities at every session so you will never be bored of doing routine training. I highly recommend him especially for first timers. I lost a total of 30 pounds and 10% body fat training with him for the 6 months but most importantly felt good about my fitness once again.
Luke is a great trainer, personable and helps you achieve your fitness goals. I definitely increased my overall body strength and looked toner/slimmer. Highly recommend!
My experience with Emmett overall has been great and I got to say he has made fitness into a lifestyle for me. I reached out to Emmett when I knew I had fallen off my fitness routine. When I started training with Emmett I didn't have much muscle mass. I got to say after training with him the first month not only have I seen improvements on my legs and back strength but overall putting on some weight. From that month on, I got my cut and lean around my body and he helped me clean up my diet. I am very thankful for his help and highly recommend him!
I have been working with Lucy for about 6 weeks. I have a bad back and bad knees. Lucy will show me an exercise she wants me to do and think "that's going to hurt" and I am surprised it does not. Other times I start the exercise and even changing up the angle and it is still painful. Lucy knows when to stop and try something new just for me. She is surprised at times what I am capable of and others what I struggle to accomplish. She is learning my personal body and am grateful she is willing to take the time to listen to me and adjust my workout accordingly. I know the difference between pain and muscle soreness. After a workout I am grateful to be sore because I know that I have used muscles that have not moved or worked out in many years. I am also grateful I am not in pain, sometimes a trainer will push you so hard that they cause pain to their client, Lucy is conservative in her approach since she tends to work with an older clients. Lucy also is very good at reading people and always willing to offer a listening ear. She is like a BFF who always has something positive to say while still encouraging you to do your best. She is the perfect trainer for me!
Laura is very attentive to detail. The plan she created for me is perfect for my lifestyle. She gives immediate feedback & will create a program that works for your body & what you can commit to. She is also very lighthearted and makes what can be very challenging be motivating & fun. She is very understanding of how difficult weight loss has been for me, but still pushes me to give my best. Also, she so is very reliable & always on time.
Vanessa meets all these standards. I have learned things about my body I didn't recognize. She Is teaching me the importance of posture and strength. Pushing me In areas I can build In. I didn't just purchase sessions but I was also given a meal plan for guidance and a reference guide teaching me the difference In good and bad nutrients In food. She worked out a schedule that works out for me during the weeks and Is always on time and checks on me to see how I'm doing. I have been a member of different gyms and I've never had the follows up I get with a trainer! I'm very happy I invested in myself and choose Vanessa as a trainer. I would recommend her to anyone because I know she values herself and the work she puts Into her clients.
I started my training with Fit to You, Marcos a few months ago. I was nervous and wasn't sure what to expect since I had never "worked out" before nor had I ever stepped foot in a gym. When we first met I felt he listened to exactly what I was looking for in a trainer and what I was looking to accomplish. My experience has been nothing but positive! Marcos has worked his schedule to accommodate me and the time I am available to workout. He is always positive, uplifting, encouraging and patient. Each workout session he has pre-planned for me in what he believes I can do and what is the next step in fitness for me. I have definitely seen a change in the way my clothes fit, my body and my strength. If you are looking for a trainer, don't look any further because Fit to You has been the best investment for my health and fitness journey.
I absolutely love Blackshear Fitness!!! They have the best trainers in town. I have been a part of this family for a little over 3 years. I drive about 25 minutes each way just to attend the boot camp classes. They have always pushed me to do my best and challenge me every single time. Classes are available 5 days per week at no extra cost. They are truly the best!
