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!
Great first training session! Very informative and personable , looking forward to my next session!
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!
Paul is an extremely professional, friendly and helpful trainer! He is experienced and knows what he is doing. He gives out meal plans and excercises that is suitable for my level. I have been training with him for three months now, results are obvious and satisfying! I am really happy with Paul and would recommend him with no doubts!
Yes, me and my husband hired Ted as a private trainer because we we're very impressed by his knowledge and his passion .Cannot wait to start the training: )
I started training at M2Fitness a few months ago because I would like to join LAPD and I need to develop the strength required for the job. Within the last few months my family and friends as well as myself have noticed such a great physical change in my body. I have lost body fat, gained muscle, toned and dropped two dress sizes. So far I am very happy with my progress! Emile knows exactly what you need to get you to your goal and he gets you there. M2Fitness not only pushes you to your desired goal but pushes you to desire more. They completely changed my view of fitness. Something I used to hate I now love. It is a new lifestyle and mindset that will never change for me!
I trained with Manuk a couple times a week for the last three months and couldn't have had a better experience. I feel like my old self, I learned new ways to stay in shape, and had a personalized meal plan that was tailored at various points throughout my training. Manuk will kick your butt into shape and really cares about his work. He makes himself available outside of his sessions and is just a great guy. His prices are great compared to packages at larger gyms. Setting goals and having accountability is something that I need in order to make big changes. Manuk made it happen.
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 Aro is an embodiment of beauty and physical strength. She always inspired me to go beyond my limits and with her guidance and training, I became not only physically but also mentally strong. I have lost 30 lbs, completed a 26.2mile marathon, and am currently training for a half Ironman. Meghan is an exceptional trainer who educates her clients about their bodies and provides not just exercise but also nutritional advice. She customizes and centers her workouts around the client. Every day is a new challenge. I strongly recommend Meghan to all my friends and loved ones.
I have been working with Sandy for about two months. She has been fantastic to deal with. She is knowledgeable, motivating, and her work-outs kick butt!! Sandy has been very flexible in scheduling appointments and she is always on time. The sessions she has created for me have been an excellent mix of cardio, strength training, and AB work. None of the sessions have been boring! I highly recommend her services!!
I worked with Margo over the course of about 5 months and had a great experience. I had already been exercising consistently for a while but Margo helped me bring my fitness to a whole new level. He created a personalized workout plan that incorporated the things I wanted to focus on: functional fitness and MMA. Throughout our time together we also modified and tweaked my workout to focus on my weaknesses. He was always available for questions and delivered on his promises. If I didn't have to move away I would still be training with Margo, and I highly recommend him to any of my friends who want to push themselves past their comfort zone.
Gabby is very thorough and knows how to get the results you want. I am training with her to get in shape for my wedding and told her I did not want to get bulky- just toned. She created workouts that are high intensity interval that helped me get leaner/toned. I've seen results already and it's been only a month. I wouldn't be able to push myself to do these workouts on my own- so it's really helpful to have her to help me and make sure I push myself to keep going.
Derek was professional, he listened to my needs on what my goals were. He was always on time and had a set plan of action for every training session.
Before Lucia I use to work out but never really noticed a change. Once i started my traing with her I felt better and actually understood what I was doing. Not only that but I told her the areas i wanted to fix and she immediately took that into consideration and listened to what i wanted. She explains each exercise thoroughly and motivates you with each exercise and every session you have with her. Over all having her as a trainer has helped me get into shape and continue to work harder for my goal. With her training I've seen a big change. Thank you !
I contacted Jason because I was looking to lose weight and wanted a personal trainer to work with. I love the fact that he had his own personal studio where we could train one on one without the distractions of a whole gym with thirty other people. I bought three months worth of sessions coming in 3 days a week. He was very flexible with my schedule which was something I needed with my work. His rates were awesome, I dare say unbeatable. I came in assuming the usual 3 sets of 15 reps of this and that. But boy, was I wrong. And in a good way =). His method is different from other personal trainers I've worked with in the past. The sessions were intense and left me feeling stronger than when I came in. Other trainers I've worked with had me looking at the clock wondering when the set would be over and the tortture would end but Jason made me want to keep going, he challenged me and made me feel what I can only assume athletes feel when they are training before the start of a season. In other words, it was hard work, intense but the hour flew by because he's actually made working out fun, never boring as no one session was the same =). Which was the best part. Each session was different and it made me look forward to what we were gonna do that day. I'm glad I chose to come to him because Equinox, NYSC, and Bodyscapes, honestly cannot compare to the service that Jason provides. I am speaking from experience. And what makes him successful at what he does is his PASSION to getting his clients healthier and transforming their body.
Great!! Mariano combines knowledge with heart to help you achieve your fitness goals. With him you will learn to adjust diet to your customized workout routine while gaining the encouragement to succeed. Within only a few weeks of training he's helped me realize great positive results, fast! I definitely recommend him.
I've done group training and individual training with Vanesa. She pushes you and gets you to do things you don't think you can. The sessions are always fun, and always a workout. She is constantly changing things up so I'm finding myself sore often, which is a good thing! The one thing I love is that she focuses on making me strong, which does more for my confidence than the scale. I've gotten into the best shape with her and highly recommend her.
Julie is very professional she knows fitness training and education. She presses you to go further while being patient. She is good with the equipment that can be very intemidateing. But most of all it's her personality. She not just your fitness trainer she cares the quality of your life. And she quickly becames your friend.
Jeremy and I had our intro class and he assessed my level to gauge what training progression he can give me. He’s very pleasant and totally understood what my goals are. He also said highly informative things about how muscles work and what the moves are supposed to be targeting. He made me do some exercises that got me winded already and then he said “imagine that but 3 rounds of it for the next sessions”. Exactly what I want and need. I am excited to work with him and to get whipped into shape.
Very professional. Understands client's requirement and gives the right training / coaching. We had to reschedule a few times but Daniel has been very flexible. One of the best coaches we've had in the last 10 years.
It’s been a pleasure training with Elbert. I’ve been training with him for some time now and all I can say is that he is very reliable, motivating, knowledgeable, committed & punctual. He would always go out of his way to ensure I felt comfortable in every workout. I love that he was well organized all the time and always planned ahead of time programs that best worked for my fitness goals. What I enjoyed the most while training with Elbert was that he would always incorporate a variety of challenging yet fun training routines. Most importantly, he always ensured my technique was correct to avoid any injuries. It’s never a dull moment with Elbert! -Nayely Monroy
