Prior to working with JJ, my lifestyle wasn't very active. I knew i needed a personal trainer to help with my exercise routine, and JJ was the perfect guy. Since I started working with him 2 months ago, I am now definitely stronger, and he'll push you during training but still make it enjoyable. He also pointed out the things I needed to maintain during my off days, such as cardio. I definitely recommend him to help anyone who wants to start an active lifestyle.

Jonathan is the perfect personal trainer for busy professionals. He is patient, focused, supportive, professional, and educated. But he’s also hilarious and fun. I’m completely drenched in sweat after every workout, but always leave the gym in a calmer state of mind and feeling a lot better than when I walked in. I love working out with Jonathan and so will you!

OJ is 1 of the best personal trainers I've ever come into contact with. For starters, your initial meeting is a workout created to personalize your strengths and weaknesses for future sessions. Afterwards, he speaks with you regarding your target goals, time frame, ideal weight etc. Meanwhile, he's compiling a special profile just for you in his computer. He sends weekly updates on your progress like: body fat percentage and weight loss/gain. In addition, he also sends motivational text messages during the week. He really is the most professional personal trainer I've ever encountered. I'm just 3 weeks into my training sessions and I'm already seeing results. Thanks OJ!

I hired OJ as my personal trainer. I just had my evaluation and full body workout with him and I am impressed with OJ's professionalism, his quality of work, and his positive attitude. OJ is encouraging and knowledgeable. He cares about his clients safety. When performing the exercises that OJ planned out for me he watched my form making sure that I don't get injured which I greatly appreciate.

Being an athlete my entire life I have had many coaches, personal trainers, and workout experiences. The workouts OJ from One Body has designed to meet my workout goals have been extremely challenging and a perfect addition to my current workout regiment. I am impressed by his professionalism and consistent communication with me in order to assist me in reaching my goals.

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!

First and foremost, I was very impressed by Hugo’s professionalism and care for his clients. He regularly would check in to make sure I was eating properly and meeting my cardiovascular targets. I was also struck by his knowledgeability and emphasis on proper technique, and his willingness to make every session challenging and rewarding. I decided to work with Hugo to increase my lean muscle mass. In the few months I have worked with Hugo, I have not only noticed an increase in my muscle, but I also feel more energized than before. I highly recommend Hugo as a personal trainer.

Wanna be a superhero? Training with Paul Harvey is better than gamma radiation or radioactive spider bites. After a lifetime of reading comic books and benching 135 pounds, I put myself through as much self motivated training as I possibly could. There were improvements but also serious stalls in progress and impenetrable plateaus. I could not get my size past 175 lbs and had average strength. Then at 41 years of age I opted for personal training. I had two simple goals: size past 180 lbs and improved strength across the board. Paul laughed at the first goal, and said no problem. I had my doubts because I had great trouble with gains. I blew past 180 lbs, at 2 years I was steady at 195 lbs, and last summer was 205 lbs. As for strength (and there are a lot of stronger people out there) I exceeded my expectations with a 310 pound bench, 495 pound dead lift, and pulling the entire stack on half a dozen different pieces of exercise equipment. Being a client of Paul's is fun, hard work, and motivating. I catch myself 'prepping' for my workouts in advance to make sure they go well. Now at 44 I get to feel like a superhero.

I have trained with Paul Harvey for 5+ years. I have been working with various trainers for 15 years total, and had never found one who understood my goals and knew how to achieve them. When I started with Paul I was 178 lbs. At 6'4" tall, that was very skinny. My goal was to put on lean muscle. I've added about 30lbs of lean muscle and have a six pack. Paul advises me on how to achieve my goals both inside the gym and at home. He is a smart guy and can carry on a conversation about more than just working-out. He makes me laugh and we have lively debates about current events. Even when I take the skills I've learned from him to my own solo workouts, I still never sweat as much as I do when I work out with Paul. He is a great motivator.

Over the past several years, I have worked with and been trained by several trainers, but I found Manuk to be personable, compassion and above concerned about his clients training goals. His drive for the client's success and his "no non-sense" approach to workout training, I found to be commendable. Specifically, for me, I have always had a weight management problem and been concerned about my weight, since finding and working with Manuk, I have been accountable and through that accountability and my willingness to commit to a food plan, I have seen results I previously didn't imagine. I am currently meeting with Manuk 3x/wk and after each workout, I feel accomplished and complete. I highly recommend, if you are like myself need to be driven and accountable for your weight management, Manuk as your personal trainer! Manuk, puts the "personal trainer" back into personal training, but making me feel as though I am the only client he has and that he is committed to my health and well-being. Real easy to talk to, great listener and provides meaningful feedback. If you are looking for a trainer...give Manuk (MK Fitness) a try..."he will make you sweat!"

Vinny is amazing at what he does. He really took the time during the initial consultation to get to know me and find out what my needs were. His approach encompasses the well being of mind, body and spirit. His demeanor is calm and professional, and it is apparent that he truly cares about his clients' success. This is my first experience with a personal trainer, and I was quite nervous about what I may find. In Vinny, I found much more than I could have hoped for.

Jake helped me with training advice and nutrition advice when he used to live in the UK, before he moved to LA. His information has really helped me, both in terms of improving health and fitness levels. He is incredibly motivating and inspiring - and he was so keen to help me as an individual and find out what would work best for me. I didn't like 'traditional' exercise, like endless runs or boring gym machines - but Jake could find ways to mix it up, keep it fresh and interesting, and I even managed to have fun along the way! I would definitely recommend Jake as a personal trainer to help you achieve your individual health and fitness goals.

LOVE LOVE LOVE MORGAN!!!!! I've been working with Morgan for over a year now since Feb 2015. I started with her to get stronger because I had a minor injury in my pelvis and also to get strong enough to wear heels and feel great at my wedding which was May 2015. I am already a small frame and thin person so it was never about appearance for me, I really wanted someone who would understand how to work with me, and my body... to strengthen my back, to tone my arms... to make me feel GREAT and give me a boost of energy and better mood. Morgan did all of those things and I've stayed with her ever since. I honestly would rather give my every last dime to have her personal training with me than eat or shop or anything else. It has been the best experience for me. Her energy is infectious, she is sensitive and caring and in tune with what I need, want and how to push me in the right way that I stay motivated. I can't say enough about Morgan, her skills, the variety of the exercises keeps it interesting. She is patient, which with me I really need. We've done everything from sweating buckets workouts with kettle bells to yoga to you name it. I have never felt better, looked better, and I owe that all to Morgan. She understands anatomy and it really helps that she has such varied experience in her training from physique 57 to yoga to this and that. If I could afford it I would have her work with me every day of the week! I've worked with several other folks and nobody comes close to Morgan. I hope I never leave LA because I could not envision my day to day without her cheering me on and pushing me towards my goals.

Morgan is extremely warm, knowledgeable and FUN. She can read people well and knows what level to start them out at. In my case, she quickly understood my goals and what I wanted to get out of personal training.

I really appreciate her honest and her genuine nature; she is always great about giving praise and high fives. And her music is awesome!

So many times I have tried to lose the weight that I gained over the last 10 years. I wanted to feel that confidence again when I looked at my body in the mirror. I have tried many diets, gym memberships, DVDs and other trainers. I crossed paths with Meghan through my daughter and it was one of the best things that could have happen to me. I was at a low point with feeling that I was never go to lose the weight and would probably never get back the confidence. Meghan was my trainer for 4 months and in that time I found someone that not only knows what’s she is talking about but each and every time I trained with her she was not only my motivational support in my physical growth but emotional as well. She helped me look in the mirror and not see all the imperfection but all the wonderful accomplishments I was making with my strength and cardio training! Meghan loves what she does and it shows in the way she lives and in the way she lets you know she is invest in YOU, it not just a job to her. She will walk you through a grocery store and teach you what to look for, she will text or email you recipes, she will educate you on workouts and she will teach you about the importance of a healthier you rather than a thinner you, that will come with just learning to be healthy. My knowledge on exercise and food has come so far and I have been working on my own using the tools she taught me to continue toward my overall goal. This time I know I will reach them and the game changer was her.

Meghan is a powerhouse - a true professional! She walks her talk by staying fit, healthy and progressive in the best practice methods available. Although I am a certified health and wellness coach, she added depth to what I know. She provided great tasting recipes that were satisfying and easy to prepare. She also was my personal trainer and yoga coach. She pushed me beyond my comfort zone and helped me understand the true strength of my body. If one makes the commitment to stay dedicated to her program, tremendous health and fitness will be the reward - I highly recommend Meghan!

She is a fantastic motivator, coach and someone who is genuinely interested in helping others.

I feel very lucky and grateful to be working with Danny. I started my journey of becoming healthy, more fit and stronger about one year ago in Seattle. The trainer(s) I worked with there were great; my life and body began to change like never before. I started a search for a new trainer prior to relocating to Dallas - many people responded, but none as sincere as Danny...I could tell he really wanted to work with me. We've had 8 sessions thus far and I am blown away with the progress I'm seeing! It's very apparent he knows how to achieve results efficiently and is teaching me things I never thought of learning. I feel privileged to be working with him and look forward to continuing this journey for a long time. I don't believe in setting limits; I am leaner and stronger than I have ever been in my entire life...now 60 years young. What a difference in the quality of life I have now than a year ago.

I want to let each of you know what my experience has been with Dan. I turn 59 this year and I have worked out with a number of trainers over the years. I call them counters because that’s all they did for me. They counted and I did all the work…no results! Then I met Dan in January of this year. I did the genetics testing as he recommended. Once I received the results he explained to me what the results meant and what I needed to do to get in better shape. From nutrition and cardio to weight training, he has guided me along the way. We started training three days a week. He taught me how to box as a cardio routine. Never thought I would get it, but with his patience and guidance I am now boxing and loving it… GREAT CARDIO!!! Weight training has been amazing! I have never seen results like this before!! His knowledge and understanding of the human body through nutrition and weight training is the most valuable information I have ever received. Thank you Dan for changing my body and life! Robert H.

Phil is the perfect trainer if you're looking for someone who: Focuses on fitness and health as well as looking good. Is excellent at assessing the best workout for you according to what you want. Is a positive motivator. Has a great sense of humor and at the same time is professional and conscientious. I've had several trainers over the years. When my friend asked me if I wanted to train with Phil I was hesitant. Being a trained massage therapist and reflexologist, I'm educated in anatomy and physiology.

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.

I have tried several hot diets - Atkins, South Beach, Paleo - and cleanses that made me feel like I was losing weight but made my energy plummet so fast that I could barely work my eyelids. I have been a dedicated member of my local gym but the personal trainers I had hired at the gym weren't making me look and feel how I wanted. A colleague recommended I contact Kaitlyn. I am so glad I did! Kaitlyn debunked most of the diet myths I had grown to believe. She changed the way I think about eating, what I eat, and how I prepare my foods. I never knew my vitamix blender, cast iron skillet, and baking sheet would get so much use! Her meal plans are easy to prepare, simple, and delicious. I'm allowed to eat carbs! And chocolate! The best thing is that when my husband and I are done with a meal, I'm not left starving and thinking about what strange diet pudding I should allow myself to gorge on as dessert (her meals are WHOLE and SATISFYING). Although Kaitlyn has helped primarily in my eating/cooking habits, I have also incorporated meaningful changes into my exercise routine based on Kaitlyn's advice (more weights, more muscle sprouting barre exercises, and less treadmill-to-death time). Better eating and higher quality exercise under Kaitlyn's guidance has changed my life (and my husband is jumping on our bandwagon too!). Thanks for helping me rebalance, Kaitlyn!

Kaitlyn has been my personal trainer since October 2014. She has been incredible! Kaitlyn is thorough in her training program; asking for any injuries, asking what my goals are, keeping me accountable and making sure I reach my goals. She is quick to make tweaks to the session if I have injuries. She mixes the sessions and avoids repeat workouts (unless they are my favorite). One of the things I really appreciate about Kaitlyn is she gets really creative with my workouts, which makes them so much fun! Over the 18 months she has been my trainer I am considerably stronger, more flexible, faster and leaner. Kaitlyn is very good about emphasizing healthy life decisions, which I really appreciate. I will be honest and admit I haven't always led the healthiest of lifestyles. I feel so good after our session and want to carry that feeling for as long as I can so I now try to make healthier life decisions by thinking twice about the foods I eat and activities I do. I think, most importantly, Kaitlyn is a great teacher due to her attitude. She is so supportive and friendly. I felt immediately at ease training with her.

After having two children, I was ready to get rid of the baby weight and get back into shape! Kaitlyn Noble helped me do just that! She is knowledgeable in all things health and fitness, patient with those who need more hand holding, and she is persistent. She helped me reach my goals quickly and in a healthy way. An added bonus to the personal training, was they way she educated me on a nutritional level as well. Giving me helpful insight into grocery shopping and cooking ideas for myself and my family. I am excited to announce that I have reached my goal of fitting into pre pregnancy jeans, and I believe that with Kaitlyn's help I have made this a permanent lifestyle change. I love working out now! I can not recommend her enough as a personal trainer!

Allen is one of the best trainers ever. He is very professional and cares about his clients. I have been working out with him for a little longer than a year and it has been awesome. I am currently pregnant and I know he will help me get back on track after having the baby!! If you are looking for a personal trainer he is your go to person, he tries to be flexible with your schedules to meet your needs and his prices are very reasonable!!

Setting up my first appointment with Steve was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. In the past, I had many problems and issues with my body (e.g. tennis elbow, wrist/grip issues, and other orthopedic problem). I didn’t have the knowledge nor the confidence to go to the gym without the fear of injuring myself from my physical limitations. However, Steve helped me resolve these issues by focusing on proper form in order to prevent injuries. He designed personalized routines that tailored to my condition and needs. After several weeks, I began to see significant improvements in my body such as gain in muscle mass and strength. Now, I’m able to finish any type of exercises/workout routines appropriately and accurately without injuring myself. I think the improved results from working with Steve spoke the most. Despite my physical limitations, I was able to successfully gain strength and stability without any problems. In fact, issues with my body (tennis elbow, wrist/grip issues, and orthopedic problem) have begun to disappear. At the same time, I was also able to lift heavier weights. I won’t be as strong as I am now without Steve. I have trained with Steve for almost six months now and I am planning to continue. The workout plans he designed and created for me were never boring and always appropriately scaled to my level of difficulty. I strongly believe that the quality of his training and his guidance on nutrition are the reasons why I am able to reach my fitness goals, and ultimately become a happier and stronger person. If you are looking for an authentic trainer, who really cares about you, is well educated, knows almost everything about how a body works, and understands nutrition, then Steve is your guy!

Steve is a nice guy. He help me to become good at soccer. Simply, he knows everything about what the body needs and the food that is healthy for me. When I have pain, for example, in my arms, legs, hand, wrist, and back, he know how to heal that pain. I'm really glad that I chose him as my personal trainer. I really enjoy training with him because I get motivation from him whether by making jok about me by saying that he trains a woman that is stronger than me or by telling me no time for rest and to get serious. I have been trained with Steve for almost 6 months and I wanted to continued with him but I had to get back to my home country for some reasons. If I had stayed, I would have kept training with him. I could say that I got improved at soccer because my friends and the people I play with noticed that. I noticed that myself and Steve was the one who helped me getting that improvement. Thanks Steve for everything I'll keep training until I become stronger and maybe even stronger and reach my goal :(

I can honestly say that working with Steve for the last 3 years has not only improved my body and fittnes but he has improved my health and my happiness too. I have gained the body I have always wanted. I have worked with many trainers in the past due to my job and the reason why I am writing this review is to share my secret... Which is Steve Cook! His knowledge about the body and nutrition is outstanding and I personally have learnt a lot from him. He is very kind and also accommodating about price. If you want to get fit and healthy go to Steve! He is the best

Eric Jorgensen’s knowledge of body mechanics, muscle function and attentiveness in determining the individual abilities of his clients makes him a valuable personal trainer. In the gym, Eric instills confidence and encouragement to make me want to work harder and apply myself more diligently. Eric’s knowledge about life, health, fitness and mind/body/spirit has been an asset to establish balance in my life again. With the high demands of my career, Eric’s exercise rituals and nutrition programs have changed my life. Eric has increased my stamina, helped with my stress management and has made me a healthy person again, I cannot thank him enough for this. I can honestly say that Eric is a true professional in many ways. Eric challenges me, is always encouraging and is there for questions when I need him. I would highly recommend Eric Jorgensen to you, you will not be disappointed. Cody Dylan/Fire Service Captain, Rescue Instructor

I have worked with many Trainers before because I modeled and have been a working actor since I was young. In the past I seem to find them plentiful in LA but they always lacked something. I would get guys who didn't know how to train women or they would be too easy on me. I found it extremely refreshing to find Eric. He wasn't a guy just out of college without much experience yet he was cutting edge w/ his exercises. He challenged me in every way. He honestly should be charging twice as much! In Malibu or Calabasas he would get that & blows my parents Trainers away. I guess I really shouldn't have been so surprised after I found out his history & how many people in the industry he has worked with. He is simply one of the best!!!

I have been training with Dimitri for a month, and I believe he is one of the most experienced and committed trainers I've ever met. He has continously helped me to achieve my goals and makes each session challenging but somehow still fun. My fitness has increased noticeably and i've seen improvements in my ability to do things I never thought i'd be able to and he pushes me to push myself harder I even look forward to our sesssions each day! - crazy!! I know! But most importantly :- 1. He monitors my form and technique to ensure that there are no injuries. 2. He is extremely reliable and punctual, always set up and ready for training ahead of call time. I would recommend Dimitri 100%  and with no doubts to anyone seeking to improve their fitness level and overall confidence.

When I began my search for a fitness professional I had specific criteria which I'm sure most people do. I wanted someone who could push my limits and accelerate my goals but do so safely and without coming across as pushy or arrogant. I hit the jackpot with Chris! He is extremely personable, knowlegable and results driven. Without sounding odd, I might describe him as an artist creating a sculpture. He keeps the workouts interesting and pushes me while keeping things engaging and fun. He keeps tabs on my overall health, always has a great attitude and articulates our strategy. To this point I have added lean muscle mass and lost 45lbs! I would highly recommend Chris as your personal trainer and I expect you will not be disappointed!

Tom Munizza has been my personal trainer for the past 18 years at the Powerhouse Gym in Chatsworth. During this time I have observed numerous other trainers at our gym Tom is by far the most professional, most patient, most caring and best personal trainer I have seen. I get numerous compliments on how great my body looks and a very large part of it is due to Tom and how he has helped me to shape my body. He truly cares about your form and safety in regards to proper weight lifting in addition to you as a person. Furthermore he will personalize your workout to any physical ailments your might be experiencing. Tom has been my trainer through back surgery and a hip replacement. I was able to recover very quickly in large part due to my workouts with Tom - pre and post surgery. I highly recommend Tom. I can also say he is missed dearly by all his clients and other members at the Powerhouse gym.

I love Beth! I talked to a few personal trainers when I started looking, and Beth immediately stood out heads above all the others. Beth did a physical assessment and then took the time to find out about me, my issues, my goals and needs. I have back issues, a bad hip - Beth created a plan specifically for me. I also have an issue with consistency - Beth understands and helps me - now I may miss a workout here or there - but I get right back on the wagon because Beth is there ready to help motivate me again. Which is great because I have gone years between work outs!!! I am so glad I met Beth and know that as a team I will meet my goals to strengthen my core and be fit and active as I move into my 60's. I highly recommend Beth to anyone looking for an experienced personal trainer - she is the best!
