I am an athlete at heart and I found myself completely unhappy with my body and health about a year ago. After trying to work on my self esteem first, I decided in September it was time to get back into fitness like I had been my whole life. I came on thumbtack and scheduled meetings with five different trainers. I met with JJ first and cancelled the rest before I even had a workout with him. Honestly I hired him only based off of his personality and game plan for for getting me back into shape. He literally is one of the funniest people I have met. However he doesn't mess around when it's time to work. And each workout I find that he can push me to limits I didn't know I had. I have lost 24 pounds so far but have become so much stronger and healthier. We weight lift, do cardio, and he has taught me personal defense. I was skeptical paying money to get fit but I'm investing in my health and it truly makes me happy. (He is going to make fun of me for getting sappy on this but whatever he deserves it)

I recently hired OJ has my personal trainer and I couldn't be happier. I'm so excited to work with him. Not only is he very professional, he's motivating, which I think is big part when trying to loose weight. My workouts with a previous trainer don't even compare to OJ's workouts. I would recommend OJ to anyone who is serious about getting in shape:) Jessica Moreno

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 an amazing wealth of knowledge!! He has trained me in a way that totally works! He has definitely got a system that blows away the competition and gives lasting results. I was a sceptic but he has made me a believer - I have gained more muscle volume and reduced weight in less time. Anyone can appreciate that, right?

If you are looking to work up to high energy workouts, lose weight and have fun, Fitness Comes First is the way to go. I couldn't be happier with my choice! The great part about Jobi is, I just don't go into a gym workout and leave. Jobi provides constant attention. I am constantly reminded to stay on track and be accountable to my mind and body. The individualized attention I get is superior.

Last winter I was fortunate enough to meet Paul and start my physical training program. I approached Paul with the lack of motivation to push myself to the level I desired. I wanted drastic results. I was ready to sculpt my body into top shape after having my second child. Although I am accustomed to weight training and competed in Division I college sports, I was a novice to Paul's style of training. I am constantly challenged by his weight training workouts which are infused with explosive squats, plyometrics, and sprints to name just a few. After six weeks, I had achieved more than I would have thought possible. The benefits included: a substantial drop in body fat (my leanest yet), increased overall body strength and energy, accelerated stamina, stabilized mood after recently having a baby, and sound sleep. After two years, I still look forward to each workout, and prepare for each session like I am pitching in the college world series, as he continuously keeps me guessing by introducing new skills and methods to keep my interest.

I was a little over weight and couldn't figure out why I was having so much trouble getting rid of that last little bit of fat around my stomach. I am an active guy who eats healthy and exercises regularly. I was convinced that I was doing everything right and there was nothing more I could do. I had come to the point where I told myself this was as good as I'm ever going to look and this was my body's limitation. I met with Manuk. We sat down for a consultation. He asked me about my weight training routine, my diet and my overall lifestyle, both in and out of the gym. Then we got deep. He not only wanted to know what I wanted out of fitness but also why I wanted it. I love how detail oriented he was. He seemed to genuinely care. I was a little bit caught off guard because I was just used to those trainers at big corporate gyms that all they wanted to do was sign you up for training so they can hit their monthly quota. However, I felt like Manuk was different. The consultation was unrushed. He broke down fitness in a way that really sank in for me. Finally, he mapped out a plan on how we would, "attack this obstacle." I was in and couldn't wait to start. We trained 3-4 times per week. I had a program and diet to follow and we coordinated the days to make sure we hit every muscle in my body. I had to do check-ins with him whenever I did cardio and on the days we weren't working out together to make sure I stayed on track. He would usually ask me what I ate the night before or what I was planning on eating throughout the day. Diet was a huge part of it and Manuk helped me figure out a plan that worked for me. I work long hours and I don't have the luxury of cooking every night. I loved the way my body changed. I loved how much stronger I had gotten. I loved how lean I was and most of all I loved how despite my own thoughts, I had pushed past my plateau. Manuk took my body to the next level, to say the least. I look better in my mid thirties than I did back in my twenties. Let's get it, Manuk! ^Manuk quote, LOL

Working with Vinny has completely changed how I work out. I was always good at motivating myself at the gym, but I knew I wasn't maximizing my time. By combining martial arts, weight training, cardio, and my own diet plan (created by Vinny and based on my specific measurements) I'm now seeing big changes in my body. He's such a great motivator to do that "one last rep" and really focuses on not only training the body, but the mind as well. I'd recommend him to anyone and everyone!!

I'm a little over a month in and am super happy with the progress I'm making. I'm 25, tall and skinny, and have been working towards gaining weight/muscle. With Ronnie's eating advice and training plan, I've gained over 8 pounds and friends have been telling me they're seeing a difference in my body. Ronnie is super awesome, friendly, and challenges you to push forward and do more. Highly highly recommend!

I have been training with Meghan for the last 3+ months and have noticed a significant improvement in positioning, mobility and balanced strength ever since. Meghan is professional, attentive and focused on helping me achieve my fitness goals. Her programming changes every week to ensure I am engaging and activating muscles in ways that will improve strength as well as guarantees that I will never get bored. After being an active Crossfitter and olympic weightlifter for four years, Meghan's isometric and body weight strength programming continues to challenge me in fun and surprising ways.

Sandy is such a lovely person to have as a trainer! She thinks of different hour long work outs for you for every time you train! We did a mixture of cardio and weight training, with special attention to the places on my body I wanted to tone. She's super personable, friendly, approachable, and generous with her time. I also lost a few inches the first month I trained. She was also willing to meet me at a local park or my own residence, which was helpful with certain weather conditions. I would recommend her to anyone who wants personal training--if you're looking for someone who yells at you and is more of a "sergeant" about it, though, this isn't for you.

Started with Gil to balance yoga and weight training. He's very easy to work with and was always prepared with workout plans to help me progress. Over the 20 sessions I grew more comfortable doing handstands without relying on a wall.

We have been training with Shoshanna since March. My daughters and I have worked with trainers before however, it never stuck. Shoshanna has a way of keeping us motivated and encouraging us to stick with it. Shoshanna has specialized workouts for each of us and they have been extremely effective. We have not lost a ton of weight but, we are toned and we have lost inches. She is very good at what she does but, she will not take it easy on you. She will push you and you will have muscles hurt that you didn't even know you had but, I ALWAYS feel great after a workout with Shoshanna!! We are very lucky to have found her!!!

I have never had such great success with dieting or exercise. Lucy, has been such a great motivator. She works with your needs and areas of concern. Lucy, is a great trainer. She has helped me with my weight, toning and energy. I also have a bad back. I do not feel like i'm always in pain anymore. Lucy showed me how to use my knees and my legs.

This is an excellent private gym. I've been going there for over a month now and I love it. It doesn't smell like your typical gym. It is well ventilated. The trainers there all seem to be professional and have a great relationship with their client. I also like the fact that there isn't a lot of noise. So no grunting or dropping weights. Very comfortable for all.

Chris is a great trainer and really knows his stuff. For many people, it’s tough to take that leap and hire a personal trainer to get in shape. It’s especially tough if you haven’t done any weight training before. However, Chris will teach and work with you no matter what your abilities are. He’s funny and keeps the intensity at the right level to see results while still being able to enjoy it. After working out with Chris, I feel refreshed. I don’t feel overworked, exhausted, or too sore. I’d highly recommend Chris to anyone who wants to improve their health, body, and happiness.

I first began working with Jared after a series of 3 or 4 mediocre trainers. So when he put so much effort forward to initially and constantly understand where I was in my body, health wise, and where I wanted to be I was pleasantly surprised. Jared goes out of his way to make sure I have an understanding of what is going on with my body and am on track in and out of our sessions which I greatly appreciate. He has a vast knowledge of his profession and ties our work in with my dance and yoga background which helps me on a personal and professional level, as a yoga instructor. I would not be where I am today physically, health wise, and knowledge wise if it were not for his dedication. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a true transformation.

I was only with Edward for 3 months. By the first month I lost 11 pounds. I learned so much though! My starting weight was 151.1 and I dropped to 135. In my personal experience with edward, I can say that he is completely dedicated to his job! He works around your schedule. He gets to know you as you work out with him on a one on one basis. He is attentive on getting to know your strengths and weaknesses . Not once did I feel I couldn't achieve my goal. My greatest motivation was that he believed i could do iy, thus i did.He will reach out to you on a daily bases to motivate you to schedule the next work out session. For a trainer this good, I'd expect his prices to be super high, but on the contrary, they are less than reasonable (in my opinion) . With this review I just want to say thank you -abi
