Working out has never been enjoyable for me. Even after I lost a significant amount of weight, hitting the gym was fairly low on my prioity list. Given that I'm not very self-motivated athletically, I realized I needed help. To say that I'm lucky to have found JJ right off the bat would be an understatement. He has completely changed my attitude towards physical fitness and although I like to complain throughout the workout, I love every painful minute of it. Not only is JJ incredibly professional (he knows what he's doing), but he's hilarious and easy to get along with. After only a month of 4 days a week, I've noticed some really significant changes. I'm lucky to have him and I look forward our future workouts.

I have been training with OJ for a month now and I couldn't be happier with my results! I have never used a personal trainer before and I was nervous about being over worked causing me to give up on my fitness journey. Since day one I have felt like OJ listened to my needs and made a plan that catered to my goals. He has also been very accommodating to my schedule which is important to me since I am a grad student. Since training with OJ I have noticed a change in my physical appearance as well as my stamina and will power; I believe this has a lot to do with OJ’s motivating and supportive demeanor. I am excited to continue this fitness journey with OJ and I look forward to meeting my overall goals. I highly suggest contacting OJ for your fitness needs!

I've had personal trainers in the past but none like Hugo. He is very professional, knowledgeable, and passionate about physical fitness. I have been training with him for approximately a year and have always had a positive outcome. I give my full recommendation to anyone looking to start their fitness journey with a true professional.

I have enjoyed starting my fitness training. Jobi has been very patient with me and has taken the time to tailor my workout to my specific needs. Knowing when to push me or to encourage me, he has been very professional and his experience and knowledge in this field is evident. I especially appreciate how flexible his schedule is.

Hmmm... I'm not really sure how to write a review for this guy without sounding like a cheesy advertisement, but really, that's just how wonderful he was. I've been a long distance runner since I was 12 (I'm 26 now) and cardio has always been my preferred exercise. I've been plagued with injuries off and on for the last couple years so I decided I would give personal training a shot, learn how to sculpt and work out my body in a different way. I am so glad Manuk was up to the task. He sat me down and asked me exactly what I wanted to accomplish during our time together and what my long term goals were. He gave me an overview of what he thought the best plan was to meet these goals and always answered my persistent (and annoying) questions. One of my biggest problems with being in the gym and trying to convert to a healthier life style is accountability. I can work hard in the gym with Manuk three days a week, but it's the times that I wasn't with Manuk that made it hard because it was easy to "cheat". Manuk makes himself accessible to his clients. He encourages you to share apps such as my fitbit and my fitness pal to help with your nutrition, he encourages you to text him when you have questions... and I do mean any question. This guy even gave me tips on what booze would be least damaging to meeting my goals when it came time to go on vacation with my friends. The most helpful thing about Manuk, however, is how much he cares. There were times were I had personal things going on in my life that really affected my performance when I would meet with him, but he would be right there in that moment with me telling me he understands and encouraging me to use that in our work outs. And it worked. I, unfortunately, had to move 400 miles away for work and family, but I have yet to really click with any fitness instructor or trainer the way I did with Manuk. He's just that genuine (something I'm finding out is pretty hard to come by in this industry) and just that great.

Vinny is probably the most positive person I have ever met. Vinny is a great coach and has taught me a lot about how to really train hard. Vinny maximizes your workouts in ways i thought weren't possible. He shows great dedication in his work and has helped me with with my fitness training and getting my meal plans together. His work changes you for a lifetime, that's for sure.

It's been a year since I started working with Derek. In this one year I've learnt a lot from Derek in terms of overall fitness, exercises, right postures, nutrition and so on. He does due diligence with your current physical state and tailors the exercises according to what is best for your body. I'm very happy that I choose Derek as my personal trainer as his recommendations and training has helped me be in track to achieve my goals. More than a trainer Derek has become a great friend of mine. Along with the exhaustion I look forward to the great conversations we have at the gym.

After realizing my 48-month old baby weight wasn't going to melt away on its own, I decided to give Allen Russel and SKILZ Fitness & Sports a call. Allen did not disappoint. He customized a work-out plan for the target areas that I wanted to tone and a meal plan to help me lose the weight. He was very accessible and accommodating with my rigorous work and mom schedules and results were visible. Allen has not only been an ear, but a motivator, drill sergeant and now friend. Guarantee he won't disappoint!

Worth every penny for sure. First, the facilities at Next Level Fitness are top notch and allow for variation in exercises. Equipment very well maintained. Lee is the type of trainer who listens to what you want to accomplish and helps you achieve that. I wanted someone to motivate me and push me and he was awesome at increasing intensity when needed while being very careful about avoiding injury. Knowing that I am a runner, Lee didn't focus as much on cardio. Instead, he tackled my weaknesses by focusing on compound movements and core exercises since I'm a beginner in strength training. In short, he is not a cookie-cutter trainer. The warm up and stretch routines he taught me have been very helpful in maintaining healthy and happy joints (specially since I run frequently). Furthermore, he helped learn how to continue training on my own beyond our sessions, unlike other trainers who just want your money. I feel prepared to hit the gym on my own for a while, but I will definitely be coming back to Lee. He is very flexible with his time and will go out of his way to accommodate you. Always on time, always prepared, very organized, and overall a pleasant person to be around.

I highly recommend Luis as your personal trainer. I am a female who has worked out with him for over a year now. He promised me I wouldn't 'bulk' up, but rather slim down and get more toned. He was correct! I am down several sizes and still going. The personal one-on-one training is great and his positive attitude keeps me coming back for more!

Coach Sarah's method is - not to be dramatic - life changing. After motherhood changed my body completely, my only goal in teaming up with Sarah was to "get feet on pavement" as she said. Literally that's all I wanted -- Accountability and motivation to get me out jogging. Then it turned into a 10k race that I won medal that said "top 100 female finisher" (not many people at the race but it's still a victory!) which now turned into half marathon training! In 2009, I said to myself "never running a half marathon again" after my first Disneyland Half, and in 4 weeks I'll run my 2nd. All because her method restored this mamma's "runner's high." She's sweet, incredibly encouraging, but tough! Thank you coach for giving me back my love of running!

Carolyn is not the run of the mill trainer! She is a different kind of personal trainer who actually cares about her clients. She evaluated me as a whole person: personality, habits, diet and mental state. In one week I felt results because she understands my body type and ability. This is the first time in my life I have ever enjoyed fitness to the point that I actually look forward to each session. She is one of L.A.'s best without a doubt.
