Eric Cruz has been my personal trainer for over two years at Dynamic Fitness High Performance Kinesiology (DF-HPK). Eric listened to my goals and we set about meeting and exceeding them. Besides being overweight and having poor eating habits, I had ongoing low energy and back pain. My exercise routine at home was not getting the results I desired anymore. Eric was able to assist me in motivating myself to be a better person. I have lost over 40 pounds and now eat healthy foods that keep me full. Eric helped me in strength, balance, posture, and in achieving a lower BMI. What is impressive is that Eric is always on time and keeps the training interesting yet challenging. Eric works around my commuting schedule. I get a lot of complements at work now and fit better in my clothes. DK is located on Jefferson Avenue a few blocks north of Winchester Rd.

Karen taught an hour session for me and my girlfriends. It was SO much fun and a great workout. She was a professional and did corrections for us while also taking some great pictures. Would strongly recommend her for anyone else who was considering. Thanks!

Doug Malo has been training me on weights for the last 4.5 months and I keep coming back. I feel he takes a personal interest in me, as a client, because when he listens to me, he hears me and works with me. He is present and takes into account the whole person he is working with to provide for their needs. I came to Doug after a long spell of physical inactivity due to extended care for my husband and subsequent period of adjustment after his death; my goal was simply to get in better shape and regain lost muscle mass. Though I still struggle with depression, Doug's training regimen is helping me develop mental toughness to see through my commitments for my physical improvement. I've lost 8 pounds (142 lbs down to 134 lbs) which for some people doesn't seem like a lot, but the weight has shed effortlessly and without rebound and I'm more energetic and much stronger. Doug is well-informed and well-read yet doesn't push a lot of information but rather points to his sources. He is neither dogmatic nor stringent as a lot of personal trainers can be, but rather sensitive to his clients' physical makeup and abilities. Doug is a kind and flexible, a cheerful encourager as well as a great support.

Coach Hobbins took a deep personal interest in our desire to become better swimmers. Within 6 weeks, my husband went from not being able to swim a lap to completing a 3/4 mile swim in a Triathlon. Coach's teaching styles and his encouragement led to our success. We would recommend Coach Hobbins for anyone wanting to improve their swimming ability.

Throughout most of my gym-haunting years, I really never thought about using a personal trainer. To me, that concept was for the rich and famous, or the serious body-builders, or the pretentious. Besides, who wanted to be saddled with the responsibility of an exact time to show up and have someone always on your case about eating right and exercising? I kept my own schedule, was reasonably active, and generally kept my weight under control, or – after a high peak, got it back under control with a variety of diet plans. Then I met Eric. He was the owner of the gym I joined in Palm Springs. He is extremely personable and outgoing, and always made sure to greet everyone by name. I started watching him with clients and noticed he was very patient, trained a variety of ages, fitness levels, and attitudes – and didn't fit my concept of trainer, aka drill sergeant, at all! By encouragement and compliments he motivated people to keep pushing themselves and achieve new levels of strength and fitness. Meanwhile, he'd talk to me and suggest that maybe I could benefit from a trainer. No pressure – just suggestions. Eventually, I succumbed to his charms and we started working together. What a difference that has made! Although I had used many gym machines over the years, I never really knew how to systematically and most effectively work my muscles – and I certainly had steered away from free weights. With Eric's expert guidance, we tackle the whole body over the course of our three workout sessions per week. Each third of the body gets a great workout each hour session, then gets the needed rest while the next third works. In this manner the workout is more intense, more effective, and much more enjoyable than just wandering around the gym doing a little of this, a little of that, and ultimately achieving little of anything. Working with Eric is one of the best things I've ever done for myself. His knowledge of muscle physiology is superb, so he knows what exercises and equipment to use to work on specific areas, or what things to avoid when there is a physical limitation/injury. His demeanor is wonderful – always cheerful, generous with praise, urging me to go just a little bit more or a little bit heavier. He makes the workouts fun and the time flies past. Does he let me get away with anything? Absolutely not! He knows when the weight is too light, or the reps aren't quite enough, or the exercise is too easy, so he changes it up. But, this is not the drill sergeant approach – just a friend helping a friend do good things. He doesn't make me go past what I am capable of – he just helps me increase that capability. With a variety of exercises and a guide at my side, there is no boredom, no wondering what to do next, and no inclination to quit early and go home. I look forward to my workout sessions, and relish the regular schedule which has become an integral part of my life. And, now that he has his own training space at Get-Fit, training is easier without having to dodge a lot of people at a standard gym. We have also worked on diet for weight loss. Eric has given me several diets which I have (mostly) followed. The regular accountability which I initially feared turned out to be a good tool for staying on track. I lost the weight I needed to lose, taking my time so it would stay off, and now can manage it relatively easily with the regular exercise and modified diet. When I slip a few pounds, we increase the cardio portion of the workout and I'm soon back on track. I've been working with Eric for more than four years now, and my experience has been tremendous. I've become addicted to working out rather than having to force myself to go the gym. I've lost 30 pounds, dropped 2-3 sizes, developed muscles that actually show on my body (and which I love to look at!), lowered my body fat to 18.6 percent, and feel more toned and stronger than I have ever been. Not so modestly speaking, I'm in much better shape than all of my senior friends and peers. But most importantly of all, I'm happy with me and what I've achieved. Personal trainers? - a definite YES! Eric – the BEST!

Everything was very personal and easy to follow. He sent me a great food plan and list of good foods to eat; as well as customizing your routine to however you are and how ever you'd like to improve yourself. I intended to just do the one free work out I'd won, but I liked it so much I've been with him for a couple months now, very flexible schedule and awesome to work with. 10/10

Jen is very competent as a trainer. She is very friendly and personable. Everyone who trains with her loves her. In my opinion, she is better with women and older people. She is still a woman herself and shouldn't be training men who lift heavy and need a "spot".
