I have been a member of Shape Up Studio Personal Training and Markshane Malone for over 2 years now and have never felt better! I know I can always call/text him when I have any questions at all. All of the staff at Shape Up Studio has been amazing throughout my weight loss journey! And the new updated gym is out of this world! You won't be disappointed if you choose to go here!
Rich has the rare combination of passion and patience not often seen in the fitness and training world. In my many personal ups and downs in my ongoing battle with my weight, Rich was the one trainer who knew how to push me, yet keep things fun and interesting. He never allowed workouts to get stale or repetitive and knew that perfect balance to push you to the limit without breaking you. The best part about Rich is that he is a normal guy's guy and doesn't look down on anyone. He knows how to relate complicated nutrition and training principles to a lay-personwho doesn't understand the first thing about any of it. My only complaint is he no longer is local so I can't train with him anymore! However, I recently lost 40lbs implementing those many little tricks he passed on to me years ago. As I said, he knows how to relate the information in ways that are easy to remember and so that you won't forget. Do yourself a BIG favor and train with Rich today!
I have lost 15 pounds and 20 inches in two months. I had back surgery in the summer and Meagan's training and nutrition was perfect. Karen Joseph
I have always been an athlete growing up, and I still consider myself pretty fit. However was getting bored just running and didn't want to spend the money going to a crowded gym so decided to give personal training a try. Lana is the perfect choice! I've been with Lana for a little over a week and she is outstanding! Very professional, and nice yet extremely motivating. She knows a lot about cardio and strength training, and even runs with me during our workouts. I highly recommend Lana.
Dustin is an amazingly professional trainer that is highly responsive to the needs of his clients and we'll build a custom Training rooting for you based on your specific goals and resources. I met with him this evening at the park and she had me doing several of his high intensity interval routines that's just it my abilities and made it possible for him 2 gauge my aptitudes at this time. The workouts were challenging but not overwhelming and Dustin was very responsive to my needs whenever I was unable complete the set or if I was in pain he was able to switch out the routines to make it more comfortable and always kept a very positive motivational attitude. I'm looking forward to continuing working with him swords my health and athletic goals! To be thorough I am a 37 year old male that is trying to lose 35-45 pounds in body fat and gain a muscular toned physique so we'll see where we can go from here!
I hired Tom initially to get in shape for my approaching wedding in Hawaii, which I then continued for 3 months after as the results were excellent. Tom pays attention to your goals, habits, metabolic type, and physical abilities. His diet suggestions and diversity in workout routines kept things interesting and fun (as fun as working out can be at first!) Tom's knowledge of CrossFit training, weights, and various other disciplines set him apart from your typical 24hr fitness trainer. He was willing to be flexible with my work schedule and was always available for a quick call or text. Tom provides encouragement, support, and puts together a solid plan to achieve your goals. I would highly recommend Tom for anyone hesitant or intimidated by the gym and or initial commitment of getting in shape.
I recently did a private instruction session with A. Doyle. It was my second time ever doing yoga and I was intimidated by the atmosphere of a gym class. Allison's instruction was the perfect alternative. I didn't feel self-concious at all. I learned classic yoga poses and breathing techniques. She tailored the lesson to my beginner level and was very attune to my particular strengths and limitations. She had alernative poses ready for me in the case that something was too challenging, so I never felt like I "couldn't" do the lesson. She was attentive to correcting my form (making "adjustments") so that I had a good foundation to start on. I feel that in a group class I wouldn't have gotten nearly the personal attention. She takes her time and even repeated the lesson once we were finished (without my asking) so I could try it at a different pace and with my new knowledge. I appreciated that she didn't watch the clock or appear rushed in the least. She seems to truly love what she does and is perfectly suited for private instruction. Her rate is more than fair for the quality of instruction you receive.
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!
I love Lisa! Her prices are unbeatable, and she's very understanding and flexible. Our sessions are always super fun, and she feels like family. She pushes when you say push, but is careful to avoid anything that could strain or injure you. I referred my sister to start training with her as well, and she really likes it too.
I did a lot of research on the internet on Fitness Trainers before deciding on Colby and was thoroughly impressed & satisfied with the training program he set out for me. I loved the professionalism of the whole experience; his knowledge, work ethic, the FACILITY & STAFF. It was not a "meat locker" but people with a common purpose working hard to attain it. What I love was Colby was 100% on me in training ... no wandering eyes, answering phone with other clients and NEVER gave me the sense he was board with what he was doing. Always encouraging and keenly aware of what I was going thru mentally as well as physically. Though I have moved out of the area, I still hitting him up with advice and help & he always responds ... he is the man! Try that with some of the other trainers after your contract is up! Highly recommend him to anyone that is serious about their training on ALL levels. I am no pin up model lol. Thanks Colby!
Candon is the first personal trainer that I have stuck with- Now for over 2 years! I am already very knowledgeable about exercise and weight training, but Candon takes my workouts to the next level and keeps me motivated. He is a true professional that makes the sessions fun and challenging. He genuinely cares about his clients and knows everything there is to know about building muscle and avoiding potential injuries. I am so grateful to have found him!
Pete is great at creating ability specific strength training work-outs. He is always changing it up and makes each work out an appropriate challenge.
Diane is awesome! She started training my son and now has become our family coach, training me and my husband too:) Thank you Diane!
I've known Jon for a number of years. I met Jon when he was a student athlete at San Diego State University playing football. He's always been determined to be a personal trainer and there wasn't a droubt in my mind that he would reach that goal. When I learned that he was actually training people I had to see what he was doing. So I started following him on Instagram to see him in action. I was impressed with what he was doing with his clients that I called him up and set up an appointment. He stopped by my office (which I appreciated) and we talked about what my fitness goals and objectives were for training and the next week I was at his training facility training. He didn't go easy on me and he didn't let me slack on any part of my workouts. I thought he would take it easy on me but he didn't and I appreciate that. There were times I told him I couldn't do an exercise and that the weight was too heavy but he encouraged me to do it. And I did it. His positive attitude and patience with me makes him an AMAZING trainer. Not only does he care about your fitness journey but he cares about you as a person. Side note he allows me to have fun (telling jokes and singing) when I workout, while still pushing me to get better and stronger. I would recommend that you give Jon a chance and see for yourself what an AMAZING trainer he is.
Everything was straightforward, I felt no pressure to commit. He is very mindful of my fitness goals and limitations.
Jamie was very quick to respond and I appreciated his professionalism and personal interest. He was the only professional to actually take the time to type out and message me and ask what my goals were instead of these automated message estimates others are sending. Thanks
Working with John is great! He's very knowledgeable on strength training and nutrition. And he comes right to you! (I can work out conveniently at the fitness center in our condo community.) Also, his price is very reasonable.
Cody is the ultimate professional when it comes to quality personal training. I can definitely say he made my all around fitness exponentially better. His structured workouts not only allowed me to track my progress, but actually feel the results too. Time and time again he pushed me beyond my limits and really got the best out of me. My strength, flexibility, and attitude towards fitness all drastically improved after my time with Cody. Although we had to part ways because of distance, I would still recommend training with Cody to anyone looking for a true training professional. He will make you BETTER.
“Amanda Zizzo is a beast! She is tough, competent, determined, and enthusiastic. She’ll push you mentally, physically, and emotionally. Because of her guidance and help, I’ve lost weight, I’m stronger, I have better stamina, and balance. I’m more confident and healthier than before. Amanda, thank you for being you! She believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself. She is one of a kind!” Abby was set up on a two-month program with me and once we started training, the transformation had begun! She consistently worked out 4-5 times a week and followed the plan I had given her. On top of the workouts, she maintained a healthy diet by following her macro count and nutrition guidance. Abby made sure to stay on top of her cardio program as well, which was 3-4 times a week, including some HIIT (high-intensity interval training) cardio. She is so driven, and has put a lot of effort into her fitness journey. She began to have more energy and strength, wore a bigger smile on her face, and had more confidence. With her positive mindset and dedication to the workout program, she has dropped 15 pounds. I am so happy that I could help her with her transformation, and guide her throughout the experience. The greatest part is that this is only the beginning of her fitness journey! We are still training to this day, and she continuously strives to be better. I am so excited to see what goals she can achieve and how far she can go!
Training with Matt is well worth it! He kept me driven to reach my fitness goals!
I've been a client of Sly King Fitness for over 4 years now. I've never been more pleased with my body. I'm leaner, yet stronger than I've ever been in my 38 years of life. Prior to training with Sly, I was struggling to lose weight despite working out often. I was actually bulking up in my arms with my own workouts, which was not the lean and toned look I was going for. My workouts with Sly have helped my arms to get to the lean, toned shape I was after- I never think twice about wearing a sleeveless, spaghetti strap, or even strapless top! I'm a stronger runner now thanks to the overall conditioning Sly has helped me with. I believe he is able to adapt to every clients wishes, goals, and timelines. My workouts are always challenging but enjoyable thanks to Sly's great personality, creativity, and knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and exercise. I have and will continue to recommend him as a trainer to all of my family and closest friends.
