Working out with Kathy is time very well spent. A few years back I had a sports related injury which lead me to a long hiatus from my regular fitness routine as a trail runner. I began to use certain avoidance motions and postures to sidestep the pain involved with the injury. As a result of that (and very long work days sitting at a desk) I developed a muscular imbalance which manifested in a severe weakening of the knees. Sitting down became nothing more than a semi-controlled fall, getting up from a squat involved an act of God, and any type of fitness routine became an unattainable dream. Before the injury I was an avid trail runner - logging 5+ miles per day and loving every minute of it. I missed the strength and agility I knew when I was in that condition. The time spent hitting the trails was emotionally cathartic and the physical exercise kept my body lean and rather badass... I lost that routine to the injury for long enough that it allowed certain insecurities or fears to get a pretty tight grip on my psyche. I gained weight- a lot of it... I would get so frustrated with not fitting in my clothes and simply not feeling good that i would spring into a new fitness regime with unequaled fervor only to overdo it (of course) because i wanted SO MUCH to be back to that time when i felt so much lighter- physically and emotionally due to the therapeutic nature of pushing myself physically. I developed a pattern of self loathing, which lead to an "I'm going to do it this time!" mentality, which lead to pushing too hard too fast, which lead to another injury... Which then lead to more avoidance postures for fear of a re-injury. Which lead me to finally hunting down and calling in an expert. I realized that I needed someone to rein me in, and direct my intent so that I could regain my strength and fitness at a smart pace, and avoid any overuse or new injuries in the process. I also needed someone to understand anatomy well enough to develop the weak muscles (and determine which ARE the actual culprits) first to rehabilitate the muscle imbalance and not exacerbate it. I found thumbtack when I searched for personal trainers online - Had never heard of it but the premise was definitely intriguing. I chose Kathy for a few reasons: - Kathy responded quickly and asked pointed questions to try and ascertain what the root issue might be. (Most of the other responders just talked money, and avoided any further discussion about my specific needs) This was very important to me. - Kathy relayed some lessons/expertise she had learned/gained having worked with clients having issues very similar to mine. Which demonstrated that I would not be a guinea pig for her. - Kathy was clearly a no silly frills, get the right job done the right way the first time type of trainer. I could not have made a better choice! She very thoughtfully and systematically went about rebuilding my muscular foundation. She adjusts to *your* needs- and never puts you in a one routine fits all type scenario. Every workout we built more upon the developing foundation, but never OVER did it. Working with her I have regained so much confidence and trust in my body that I had lost. My capability grows everyday as I get closer and closer to feeling like myself again. If you're on here trying to pick the right trainer for you, do yourself a favor and see what Kathy can do for you. She's focused, pragmatic, smart, and she will do what's best for YOU. Plus, (And this is a huge plus) She's a whole lot of fun to sweat yer butt off with!

I had Kiola raines as an instructor for an online fitness program . Kiola is an excellent instructor. She provided precise and clear instructions during each session, always explaining the reason for completing the movements as demonstrated in order to get desired results. Kiola makes the work fun and teaches with energy and enthusiasm. While my participation was via long distance , I still was able to understand all of the instructions and was able to reach my goals and my improve my overall fitness. I would recommend Kiola as an instructor- trainer to anyone that wants to improve their health and well-being. She is an excellent motivator !

We will train outdoor so you can feel the sunshine and be one with nature. I specialize in your overall body wellness. It's not about getting ripped at the gym, but being fit, healthy and full of energy all day long. After learning about your goals, customized workout featuring cardio, resistance training, high intensity interval training focusing on proper form, alignment and core activation will be created for you. Do you offer help with a diet? Absolutely, we offer nutritional counseling and support for in-home meal preparation. How long are the personal training sessions? It's 60 minutes a session. After each session, you will rule for the rest of the day. What types of people have trained with you? I have trained all types of people from young to old. I have trained new mothers looking to get back into pre-baby shape, cyclists, people training for triathlons, as well as people who just need the motivation and structure to help themselves get into shape and healthy living. What do I need to bring to work out? You will need workout clothes, sneakers, a towel, yoga mat and water (No iced water! more on that when you get here my friend). Can I train with my friend? Of course, grab your spouse or friend and train together; the more the merrier, and you will all keep each other motivated.

Christy is without a doubt, THE best personal trainer. I can confidently say after I've a lot of progress on my goals of being healthier, Stronger, and having more energy. I'm always excited about what's coming next.. Feeling stronger makes me want to feel stronger, If that makes sense! She is a personal trainer, Nutritionist, And life coach all in once. I now know that "healthy is not something to achieve easily" Christy is awesome, She knows what she is talking about and shows that she really cares. I could write all kinds of stuff. I'm grateful for a big shift that's taking place on my whole attitude toward diet, exercise, And myself. I couldn't have gotten this far without Christy's constant encouragement, listening to my every woe and not forcing advice on me but giving me options that allow me to still have a life. Thanks for your help, Christy is a big deal!!

Holly thighburn! I had the pleasure of taking Roshelle's mommy and me class and I felt it for days afterward. It was a killer. I did a lot of exercises I've never done before. She was super helpful and informative and helped me to modify all the exercises so I could save my sore knees. She also helped my with my twins so I could get the most out of my workout. She definitely puts the client at the forefront of her training sessions. She made the class fun and helped break the ice so I could become acquainted with other moms. I have no doubt my postbaby body will be even better than my prebaby body if I keep showing up to these classes. Thanks Roshelle!

I have had many personal trainers in my lifetime, and none have come close to the knowledge level and ability of Nicholas Geiger. Besides his infectious energy and always super positive manner, he knows more about the human body than most trained medical professionals! He motivates me to work out as if I am 30 years younger, and because of his expertise, I have lost 3 pants sizes!! I give him my unqualified endorsement. international speaker, author and management trainer

About

Danny has been my personal trainer for the past 2 1/2 years. Since I began training with him, I have dropped weight, body fat, and feel great about my body image! I never thought that I would be one of these people that are comfortable in a bathing suit and a pant suit alike. Besides physical appearance, training with Danny has transformed my eating habits and my lifestyle. I am happier, healthier, and look better! If you have problems getting to your workout because of a lack of motivation or you have not seen results because you don't know what it is you're supposed to be doing, hire Danny and watch yourself transform!

About

Tamara Kunkle has been my personal trainer for the past five months. I’m thrilled with the results she’s helped me achieve, unlike my experiences with past personal trainers who either failed to motivate me or caused me to suffer an injury. Before we started my program, she interviewed me extensively and ran me though some diagnostic tests. During that interview, and in every discussion we’ve had since, she listened to me attentively. She encouraged me to set goals and we collaborated to develop a reasonable time period over which to attain them. She believed that my past training injuries were due to a weak back, and that it’d be best to strengthen it before undergoing rigorous training. It worked. I’ve been injury-free and I’ve never felt better and happier about myself. Tamara gives me her undivided attention when she works with me. She’s present during every repetition of every exercise she’s given me to do. She leads me through precise, thorough exercises that have toned and firmed my muscles, increased my stamina and improved my health. Attaining results keeps me excited and encourages me to continue training with her. I really look forward to the days that I work out with her. She’s been present during every repetition of every exercise she’s led me through over the past five months. Unlike the past, boredom has never been an issue because she not only varies my workouts but she varies the work out location, too. Sometimes we work at the gym; other times, we work out in the park or in the streets around the Fit Stop gym. Though very challenging, her work outs are always fun, too. Tamara impresses me with her vast knowledge of health, i.e., its physical, dietary and emotional aspects. She imparts this knowledge in an upbeat, encouraging manner and she is one of the most positive people I know. Although her work outs are extremely challenging, I’ve remained injury-free. Tamara is firm in encouraging me to work out harder than I think I’m able which truly brings out the best in me. She is also one of the sweetest, kindest and most caring individuals I know. I’d whole-heartedly endorse her to others.

I can get you ripped! I offer Los Angeles mobile personal fitness training. When people become members of a health club, they want to get in shape. However, statistics show that after three months, most people stop seeing progress. They end up getting discouraged and quit. What’s worse is they still are stuck in a costly year-long contract and have to pay monthly gym fees. You hear celebrities talking about their personal trainers all the time. It's no secret that celebrities get a lot of help with maintaining their bodies, but you don't need to be rich or famous to have your own personal trainer. In fact, you don’t need to spend a lot of time or even leave the comfort of your own home. I have been helping people achieve the fit, sexy body they’ve dreamed of for over 8 years now, and I’d be delighted to do the same for you! I provide workout at your convenience. I make getting in shape convenient for you. I offer the option of you coming to me or me coming to you. I do not work out of any particular gym, so I can train you practically anywhere you’d like. You don’t need any fancy equipment or even a lot of space in your home, office, apartment or even a local park. Many interested clients are under the myth that they will need to have a large house, work-out room or at least some exercise equipment. This is not true! That's the beauty and appeal of my service – I provide all the equipment necessary for a cardiovascular or strength training work-out. If you prefer, you may also come to my fitness studio in Los Angeles to train or meet me via the internet webcam for your sessions. I offer a typical mobile training session scenario. Lori has two kids, a 6-month-old baby and 2 1/2-year-old wild man. She has a small house, so we train in her backyard. By the time I arrive at her house, she has warmed up by just finishing a local aerobics class or a power walk with the baby jogger. Both children are with us. I help to keep the 2-year old occupied by applauding his basketball shot or returning an occasional hockey puck, all the while instructing mom through a basic strength training program. Often, we put the 6-month old in a front pack while mom executes her lunges. Now get this: the baby weighs at least 16 pounds and on top of that, this mom holds 12-pound weights in each hand, total = 40-pound lunges. This ain't a walk in the park workout! When the 6-month old is not in the front pack, I help to keep her amused by holding her and letting her watch her mommy do all these silly things, or we incorporate her into the workout as resistance. I tell my clients upfront that they don't need to hire a sitter. I come prepared to do double duty: trainer and child entertainer. Some moms, however, want an hour with their trainer alone. For these moms, we recommend scheduling sessions when dads are available or arrange for a sitter. Jeffery Vega said, "It’s great because he comes to your house, so you can be lazy, but he makes up for it when he gets there!"

About

"Your life is meant to be lived so train your life now." Until I hired Eric Casaccio as a personal trainer, I never understood or appreciated what he meant by that statement. Once I started working with him, it suddenly made sense. In the time I've worked with Eric, I've dropped approximately 28 pounds and lost 4 waist sizes (from a 33/34" to a 29/30"). I hadn't worked out in years and Eric made the process fun, exciting and challenging. Not only is he incredibly personable and professional but he knows exactly what he's doing. He listens to his clients and makes their goals his own. He knows how to design a fitness program that pushes you and makes the process of transforming your body (and life) fun -- a tricky balance, indeed. I would recommend Eric without hesitation to be anybody's personal trainer.

About

Hi! I'm Emily, and I absolutely love what I do. I help people surprise themselves with what they can accomplish. The body is capable of amazing feats, and anything is possible if you train for it. My philosophy is simple: if the process of getting in shape gives you joy, you'll never quit. My workout design is as fun as it is challenging. I believe in instinctive eating instead of dieting, and that you should always feel better after a workout than you do when you start. I educate my clients about how their bodies work, so they can do the things they love to do better and without injury. I have worked with a wide variety of clients (ages 15 to 85) for weight loss, nutrition, sports performance, injury rehab, and prenatal and postpartum fitness. In addition to personal training, I teach outdoor fitness boot camps that take a "recess" approach: we create games and other fun activities, so that our members enjoy the process of getting in shape as much as the end result. I have mentored other trainers to develop their craft, and now lead a team of stellar fitness professionals. My team and I were chosen to be off-camera trainers for the new ABC reality series, "The Revolution" (premiers Jan 2012 and Starring Ty Pennington, Tim Gunn and Harley Pasternak), and our clients were among the most successful participants to date. Testimonials: (more on my website) "I began working with Emily, not on a regular basis, but rather to give a kick start to my exercise regime for my upcoming wedding. Not only did she customize a program specifically for my needs, my body, and my schedule, but she also provided me with tools to stay on track." - KC, 23 "I had thyroid surgery 5 years ago, and ever since then, I have struggled with energy levels and weight. After my surgery I went to curves for about 3 years, and I just kept gaining weight and couldn't get back to my "before surgery" weight. I finally decided to go with Emily and have achieved so much than I ever did. Just a few conversations about diet and exercise and going through the motions have done so much for me. I find her to be very knowledgeable in her field, and she knows exactly what I need for my specific condition." - Mary, 52
