I have been working with JJ for about 1 year and 5 months. Great working environment... JJ has helped me lose so much weight and I’ve learned proper workout techniques in this journey. I maxed out at 240 pounds, but today I weight 205 and still Iosing. I would highly recommend sparta academy for anyone looking to pursue a healthy lifestyle. My martial arts has improved tremendously too. JJ is a good trainer on both cross training and martial arts. JJ teaches Brazilian jiu jitsu, Krav Maga, and Muay Thai for martial arts. JJ would encourage you to come to class as many times you can to see results and improvements. If you ever need to lose weight or learn martial arts, then JJ is the man!
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.
I have had trainers before. However, never one like Megan, who cares beyond the workout. Her overall wellness lifestyle is motivating and inspirational. Her classes are filled with support and drive. I like that she is not a pushover or a Drill Sargent. Most of all she knows her stuff. She is always reading and learning, adding more credentials to her resume...and keep classes fresh and different. What she has created is a community of wellness with her blog, videos, and app. I would recommend Megan to anyone who wants to make a positive change in their life.
Jake was awesome! Very easy to talk to and was able to align my goals to my lifestyle. Looking forward to working with him and seeing the results.
The service I received was beyond excellent. My fiance' and I both can say if you really looking for improvement somewhere you're guranteed to receive just that with Mikel Life Coaching.
Dynamic Fitness is amazing. As an athlete, this gym has increased my performance on the playing field, helping me get faster and stronger. The trainers push me harder and help me to complete my goals. I always look forward to coming here and the atmosphere is so welcoming.
I've been working with Clyde for about 10 months. During that time I have dropped from 30% body fat to just over 10%, while losing about 50 pounds. He has guided me along a journey to a healthier lifestyle, not only in the gym, but also through tips on diet and nutrition. He is great to work with, and his own story is truly inspirational.
Emile is the perfect combination of tough ( if you don't feel like your dying there is no change happening) and aware ( Leslie what's going on with you today, what's distracting you from your goal), and I feel like he works with my whole person- mentally, emotionally, and physically. He understands that total success can't be reached with out all those components working together. His professionalism, extensive knowledge, and enthusiastic commitment to his work, provides the perfect scenario and sets foundations for a new healthier lifestyle. Emile is a master of his craft and within 3 months I can feel motivating changes in my body and a positive mental boost that was missing from my life.....Emile and M2 fitness are my sanity!!!
Gabriel has been a great asset as I've been getting back into shape. He's worked with me to get workouts that take my old injuries into account as well as easing me back into an active lifestyle, always making sure I take all the steps to help avoid injury. Gabriel has also been great in helping me clean-up my diet, and his food plans are easy to follow and have really helped me in my progress. It's been great learning new exercises and paying a lot more attention to how the movements and sequence of exercises work together. His studio is the very definition of being a private client, where you work out one-on-one with him which I find both comfortable and intense. You can go all out, with the music jacked up and no one can see you sweat! He's a great trainer and I have really enjoyed working out with him and will continue until I reach my goals.
I'm currently working with Eric to gain strength and flexibility (and improve my overall health). He has been great! I've been seeing him twice a week for about a month, and look forward to continuing training with him. A couple of things that I really appreciate about Eric and his training sessions: - He was courteous of my budget from the start and let me know what was realistic to do within my budget - He explains every exercise in detail (proper form, where you should feel muscles working, how a spotter would interact with the client). This is important for me, because being a girl and not growing up in a gym I had no clue where to even begin. So this is laying a good foundation for the long run even beyond our training sessions together. Also, it makes the client feel more comfortable when they know in advance where the spotter will be assisting at all times. - Eric is always on time. Even at 5:30 AM. He has a client before me at 4:30 AM and is there for that too. - He's been very kind and flexible when I have to travel for work and is willing to adjust the days that we meet so that I still get my two sessions a week in. - He is looking out for you in the long run. There are so many times that I feel discouraged because I can't quite complete a set or my form isn't right because I get tired. He is always quick to remind me that those things come in time as I build up strength. And it's true-- each time I can do a few more and do it better than before. He sets realistic goals and knows that things do not come over night and he wants you to realize that too. Overall, I'm really pleased with how things have been going. It's not a fast process for some of us, but since first beginning I have seen that I have improved in strength and that my body is shaping up. He's a great guy and knows what he is doing. I appreciate that he uses a style that incorporates basic weight lifting and body strength exercises, things that I could realistically do at home or a gym to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Thanks Eric!
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!
I have been training with Hillary consistently for 9 weeks now. She has become the best coach, a close friend, and daily inspiration in this amount of time. I have made huge strides in my running and physical abilities in such a short amount of time. To be exact, all my college running times are quickly being blown out of the water in training with her. But on a more important level, Hillary has been there for me emotionally on the days when life gets challenging and one foot in front of the other proves difficult. Hillary really cares about the whole person-not just numbers, results and times-but how you feel through your training with her. I continue to get stronger every day because of her constant encouragement and careful planning for cross training, rest, circuit work, and run days. Every day is different, fun, and challenging. It's easy for me to get bored with a workout-but Hillary always keeps things interesting! She is always rooting for me every single day, constantly checking in and responding to my messages immediately. Truly, if you want someone on your side in your physical endeavors-if you have any goals in sight but are worried you can't make it alone-then you shouldn't waste any time in contacting this beautiful person. She'll help get you where you want to be-starting now! I have no plans on leaving her watchful eye-in fact I have extended my training with her indefinitely. She's my coach, and I wouldn't want it any other way. I've never had anyone believe in me so much. I would think anyone in their right mind would contact her for that kind of support. So get to it!
Lila is truly amazing. I've been training with her for a few weeks and I could not be happier with my results. I've never worked with a trainer before and I was a little hesitant at first but now I wouldn't want to work with anyone else. You can tell she is passionate about helping people reach their goals. She genuinely cares about my progress as if it were her own and is extremely thorough with teaching me how to effectively do the workouts with emphasizing healthy ways to live rather than just focus on the number on the scale. I was already motivated to seek a trainer but she has truly helped me learn to love working out while focusing on living a healthier lifestyle. I train with her three times a week and we have done something different EVERY single time. She's seriously awesome and soooo encouraging. I highly highly recommend Lila. She goes above and beyond. Total gem.
Everything has gone well. I get a Great workout and good coaching on my eating. I look forward to continuing
John McGrail is one of the best things that ever happened to me. After the 1994 earthquake I had severe anxiety about earthquakes which subsequently led to panic attacks being alone at night in a house without another adult. My friend gave me his name and he changed my life. I feel totally safe staying by myself AND have been able to take care of myself and my children when the ground starts shaking! I have referred many people to him who absolutely love him!
Jen Fisher is an amazing Nutritionist and Trainer! She is a wealth of information and incredibly caring. From the moment we met, I knew that we were going to work well together. She is encouraging, inspiring, and positive. I love her energy and that she empathetic and understanding. I highly recommend Jen to anyone who is looking to make a change in their overall fitness lifestyle and nutrition plan.
Monica is a super coach. She is a fantastic and patient swim teacher. Monica is kind and generous with her time and a darling swim coach. Everyone loves Monica and she is a 5 star terrific coach. We hope to have her with us as our coach for many years to come.
One of the best parts of working with Eugene was his relational approach. No matter what topic of weight management we were discussing, it was never uncomfortable or awkward. Working with Eugene through my struggles and issues was truly like meeting with and confiding in a friend. No matter what question I had asked, he was patient in his explanations and diligent in his follow-through to make sure I had all the tools I needed in order to be able to succeed, not just in the short term but in reaching my long term goals as well. I encourage anyone who is looking for a coach to give Eugene a chance to set you straight. You will not be disappointed.
I trained with her for one week. I had to go back to kuwait. She was wonderful i saw result withen five days Thank you coach.
I have worked with a number of personal trainers and none have proved more effective or knowledgeable than Hannah. My original goal was to cut body fat; however, with her expert diet recommendations and personalized training sessions I was actually able to add lean muscle mass to my frame while cutting the stubborn body fat around my midsection. It's amazing how quickly the results began to show as friends and colleagues noticed and complimented my transformation. Since working with Hannah I have lost about 25 pounds of stubborn body fat that I was unable to lose since college. What I enjoyed most about working with Hannah is that she makes you feel comfortable and really helps you create a healthy lifestyle change - she is not your average one hour gym session trainer. She really gives you the tools and knowledge needed to make those healthy changes even when you are not in the gym. I would highly recommend Hannah for anyone who is searching to transform their body and live a healthier lifestyle.
Marina is a fantastic health coach and a wonderful human being. She helped me establish an easy lifestyle solution to eating healthily without feeling deprived.

She is never intrusive. She helped me gain perspective into the deeper issues related to my yo-yo dieting. I am greatful to Marina for helping me establish a healthier lifestyle. I am more energetic than I ever was before. Thank you Marina for everything!
