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!

I have been training with OJ for a month now and I couldn't be happier with my results! I have never used a personal trainer before and I was nervous about being over worked causing me to give up on my fitness journey. Since day one I have felt like OJ listened to my needs and made a plan that catered to my goals. He has also been very accommodating to my schedule which is important to me since I am a grad student. Since training with OJ I have noticed a change in my physical appearance as well as my stamina and will power; I believe this has a lot to do with OJ’s motivating and supportive demeanor. I am excited to continue this fitness journey with OJ and I look forward to meeting my overall goals. I highly suggest contacting OJ for your fitness needs!

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!

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!

I had no idea what to expect when I started looking for a personal trainer. I just knew I had to do something more than join a gym, and never go. Taking the free assessment session with Hugo was one of the best things I have done. You can definitely tell that he knows what he is doing. He is always well organized, hardworking, and dedicated to you, and your training. He's extremely patient with you, and always encourages you too. You are also provided with a meal plan that is easy to follow, and instructions for cardio training as well. In the past year that I have trained with him, I have lost over 30 lbs, and 4 inches off my waist. Not to mention I feel much better, and am stronger physically. I couldn't have done it on my own, and I don't mind paying for the help to get there. Hugo always works with your schedule, and is pretty accommodating. He truly cares, and wants you to succeed. You definitely get what you pay for, and it's worth it. If I didn't relocate up North, I would still be training with him today. If you want the best, train with Hugo!

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.

I was introduced to Coach Hunter when my son was in the 8th grade. I was told that he was one of the best 1-on-1 coaches in the San Gabriel Valley. When we met Coach Hunter, my son had been a long time offensive lineman who had suddenly grew in height and lost a considerable amount of weight. As a result, my son was no going to be considered for the offensive line in high school. I asked Coach Hunter if he could convert my son into a wide receiver since he had decent hands and was 5' 11" in the 8th grade. To which he agreed to help Coach Hunter's rigorous workouts, his attention to detail and his customized training had an immediate impact on my son's performance. Within a short period of time, my son was not only competing as a wide receiver, he became a starting wide receiver at his high school. Due to the tremendous amount of success that we experienced so quickly, I promised Coach Eric that he would remain my son's personal trainer throughout high school. This year, my son achieved what only 2% of all high school football players achieve. My son received a full scholarship to play football for a Division 1 school as a wide receiver. For a kid who only has played wide receiver for four years, the odds of achieving such a feat is tremendous. We owe all of it to the work of Coach Hunter. Coach Hunter is a man dedicated to teaching the fundamentals of football. He has expert knowledge on both sides of the ball and has been a great mentor to my son, on and off of the field. Not to mention his rates are extremely reasonable and well worth it. I highly recommend Coach Hunter for any parent who is looking to have their child compete at the high school and college levels.

What stands out most about Manuk is how much he cares for his clients. Every workout is personalized and he takes the time to show you the proper form for each exercise. He takes health and injuries into account and adapts accordingly, while maintaining a challenging workout regime. He makes himself very available to contact, I've had plenty of nights where I frantically text him and ask what I should eat instead of junk food. Manuk is great at making personal connections with his clients. He'll remember what you have going on in your life outside of the gym and shows a genuine interest. I think this connection is important to seeing results. On days where I am not feeling it, Manuk is there to push me and I don't want to let him down. I love starting my mornings working out with Manuk, it sets my day off in such a positive way that I can't help bring that positivity with me everywhere else. Manuk is always open to feedback which to me is a sign of a true professional. If you are considering getting a personal trainer, I strongly recommend contacting Manuk. He offers a free consultation so you really have nothing to lose...except for maybe some spare lbs :)

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!"

I have hired Manuk as my personal trainer because I'm Sweatin' for the Wedding. My wedding is in a couple of months and after searching for several private instructors I picked Manuk. Why? Because he guaranteed me results in a healthy way. No gimmicks. I've been training with Manuk for a little over 2 months and I have lost a healthy 15 pounds! I feel so energetic after workouts and Manuk is there to motivate me for every step, every jump, every mountain climber, every push up I do. Manuk is also flexible with his schedule which is always a plus for someone who is busy planning a wedding! He also keeps track of my food log. He educates me on the numbers I should aim for my nutrients and calories. Overall I've seen AMAZING results with Manuk and I can not wait to see my results in the next few months. Thank you Manuk for getting me motivated again!!!!

Hands down Jobi Morrison is the BEST personal trainer! I have been training with Jobi for 5 years. I'm the strongest I have ever been! My workouts are never boring.

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.

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.

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.

If one makes the commitment to stay dedicated to her program, tremendous health and fitness will be the reward - I highly recommend Meghan!

Aaron Valizan has been my brother, Shawn’s personal trainer and “life saver” for a couple years. Shawn was a NCAA two time Men's rings gymnastics champion, and was a personal trainer himself up until he had his 2 strokes. Shawn is only 55 years old. A few years ago, had two strokes which left him incompacitated and unable to: • Read • Remember anything • Walk on his own • Eat his meals without help • Make it to the bathroom • Remember where is living He has stayed at two Skilled Nursing Homes: San Marino Manor for 6 months Glendora Grand which is where Shawn has resided for two years. I decided that Shawn needed someone who could relate to his background and understand his illness and physical handicaps. It was very difficult for Shawn because he did have a vague memory of being a PT and thought he still had clients that he worked out with. I started researching Personal Trainers in his area and found Aaron Valizan. He was highly recommended, and I also found out he had 10 years of nursing experience in the hospital setting, so I set up a time for him to come out to Glendora Grand convalescent home to meet Shawn. They hit it off right away. Shawn was actually smiling for the first time in years. I started booking their appointments. Shawn showed progress after only a few weeks. Then, Shawn caught MRSA, which is a highly contagious disease. He was transported to Inter Community Hospital where he was put into an isolated department with a private room. Aaron visited Shawn (wearing scrubs, gloves and booties to protect him from contracting the disease). He immediately lifted Shawn’s morale which in turn got him to start to eat. The hospital staff was really impressed with how well he worked with Shawn. Aaron started organizing some training sessions for Shawn for when he returned to Glendora Grand. Within one month, he had Shawn out of the wheel chair and walking on his own (Shawn’s disease was gone). Every time Aaron walked into Shawn’s room, his fact lit up and he was ready to “go work out”. When Shawn was feeling better, Aaron decided to sign him up at a local gym, giving Shawn a lot more to look forward to do. His symptoms improved on a regular basis. He remembered that he had appointments at a gym and could not wait to go. I could not be more happy! Today, Shawn has improved on a regular basis. Aaron has kept up their appointments at the gym and coming by to work with him at Glendora Grand. Shawn looks forward to every appointment. Honestly, I have been so impressed with Aaron and thrilled with the amount of time and patience he takes to work with Shawn. I think we are beginning to see “The Light at The End of the Tunnel” and hope that Shawn will improve on a regular basis. I cannot thank Aaron enough for all that he has done for my brother. He has literally “saved his life”! Thank you, Aaron!! XOXO Patti Jenkins

Aaron is an amazing trainer. He is very knowledgeable about fitness, health and healthy eating and lifestyle. Through training with him, I've lost 20+ pounds and hit fitness benchmarks that I never thought I could accomplish (like deadlifting 205 lbs). I've worked with two other trainers and Aaron has been the best all around trainer I've had. Aaron has helped me become more knowledgeable about health and fitness. With all these advertisements, products, diets and programs promising quick health results, Aaron has taught me the best practices for making lasting changes and how to be smart and critical of these mixed mainstream messages around health. I am so thankful to have him as a trainer. He has helped me develop goals and achieve them!

Aaron has been the highest of quality personal trainers I've ever had the opportunity of training with.

With Aaron, not only have I improved my body's adaptive athletic ability, but I've also learned how to properly manage my own physical body and its capabilities for any type of exercise. He's been absolutely phenomenal and I highly recommend his training services to any and individuals. No matter the fitness goal, Aaron can help you get there!

LivePhysical Fitness is the second best find I have made on the internet, right behind my fiancé. I was looking for what I thought would be the impossible: a personal trainer that would be able to work with my injuries that affect nearly my entire right side of my body. LivePhysical sent me to Adrien who took everything in stride. He researched my injuries, talked with doctors to make sure that he the exercises he wanted me to do would not hurt me but help. Adrien is knowledgeable, respectful, professional, and personable. Adrien fully supported me when I said that I wanted to talk with my fiancé before signing up. There was no hard sell. A huge plus for me. My fiancé and I both signed up with Adrien and are so glad we did! A month into our new life, and we are feeling so much better with Adrien’s guidance. And Adrien is creative and careful to work with my limitations. He is very positive when I feel like my injuries will never get better. Adrien is a fantastic motivator and support. With his workout routines, modifications for my injuries, and nutrition plans, Adrien has been a fantastic personal trainer. I look forward to the rest of our journey together.

I have worked with personal trainers before and I have never had the results that I have had with Adrien. He changes the workouts every time so your body doesn't plateau. You want to work with him.

Gil Correa is a highly skilled trainer with a great attitude. I have worked with a number of personal trainers over many years both in New York and Los Angeles and none have proved more effective or knowledgeable than Gil. After some time of working out by myself I realized that I needed a pro who would help me stay in shape and reach new goals. I got lucky by finding someone of Gil's caliber and could not be happier.

awesome and INTENSE is all i can say about Jeff's training sessions. first i would like to say that i never thought i would have considered hiring a personal trainer because of all the bs gimmicks and crooks out there. JP understands that every indivual has a different outlook on fitness and self image. i met jeff, told him all my goals up front, and took a chance. throughout every training session jeff has been encouraging and challenging. its never a dull moment. i've been with jeff for 3 months now, it's an investment worth making as long as you stay commited and driven.

Margo has been a great trainer with me. I've only had a couple of sessions with him and I feel great. He's really patient with me and I'm a person that is not athletic at all, so for someone to take the time and explain how to do these exercises correctly is really great. He also provided me with a diet plan to help reach my goal. He's very motivating and I would highly recommend him to anyone that's trying to get fit.

Steve totally rocks!!!! I went with the stereotypical, "I've gotta look good for my high school reunion" and Steve helped me accomplish that. I really struggled with my motivation, getting up off the couch, and getting into the gym. By working with Steve, not only did our appointments give me a reason to go, but he showed me all the reasons that I'd want to go on my own. And the best part, reaching my goals was just as important to him as it was to me. I don 't think you could ask for more from a personal trainer.

He's a great conversationalist and every workout is different so it's never boring.

One of the most important things that Steve does is always watches form to maximize results and prevent injury.

He knows every muscle in your body and he comes to every session with a plan on how to get the most out of them. He encourages you to work out without being too tough, and the results speak for themselves. We both feel stronger, healthier even a bit younger after working out with him. Even when we're not at the gym, Derek is with us: he emails helpful hints on diet and at-home workouts.

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 strongly encourage anyone who is considering a healthier lifestyle to hook-up with Danny and let him guide you toward your goals.

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. I have found a lot of personal trainers to not be so well rounded in the whole aspect of fitness. I was impressed with Phil. My body is shaping up quickly and I always enjoy the workouts.

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 had a tough year, physically, emotionally, and mentally due to my pregnancy. Joining BSF Gym has changed me in every type of way. I can’t describe how my moral has been since I gave birth. Yes, my husband has made it clear he’ll always love me regardless but the self esteem is someone worse enemy and mine was killing me. It wasn’t until I joined a gym, a family, a life changing style of living. This gym is so different, so motivating, so far from my house 😭 but every drive is so worth it! BSF Gym takes the time to get to know your goals, pushes you to limits you think didn’t exists, but most importantly doesn’t let you slack off and cares for you and your well being. At any other gym, trainers will let you take more breaks than usual, slack off, and not put their heart into it (per personal experience) because regardless, they’re getting paid; not BSF Gym. They work around your schedule, and let you take your kids so you can’t use that as an excuse to not workout ! I wouldnt trade this gym for any other, seriously. I love you guys!

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!

I've been working out with Kaitlyn for the past few months and I'm already seeing amazing results. She's incredibly skilled and knowledgable in her profession, and her exercises are fun yet challenging. I'll admit there are times when I'm feeling less than motivated, but Kaitlyn never fails to find a way inspire and lift me up. I also opted for a nutrition plan given my lack of creativity in the kitchen and it's been extremely helpful in keeping me on track. Somehow she's found a way to make healthy eating less painful (there's nothing worse to me than bland baked chicken with the same old veggies), and I'm grateful for that. I'd highly recommend Kaitlyn if you're looking for a personal trainer. I'm finally feeling confident in my body again and I owe it all to her!

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!

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 :(

If you're looking for a personal trainer, Vanesa is the way to go! She is dedicated to getting you to reach your fitness goals; whether thats shedding pounds, gaining muscle, or having the strength to do other activities (I can say this because these were all my goals). I've never had an unanswered question (about workouts, food, pain, etc ) or a missed session. She has been super accommodating to my schedule and previous injury. Anytime I would feel pain somewhere in my body she would give me advice on what to do, which has always fixed the problem. She has a positive adittude and will push you when you want to give up or are tired; she gets you to the place you want to be. I don't know what more you can ask for in a trainer.

Jared Hughes was my personal fitness trainer for 2 and 1/2 years. We worked together faithfully 3 times a week. Jared would assist me with the exercises that were a bit difficult for me. If I was able to complete the exercise myself he was there to spot me. He kept an eye on my posture and voiced corrections to make if necessary. He kept track of my progress on charts that came with the P90X program. During the workout sessions he would encourage and complement me. Jared was always on time and very polite and charming. He demonstrated professional behavior at all times even with his choice of music. I was able to fully concentrate on my form while he counted and knew what exercise was next on the list. Jared also has knowledge about nutrition, supplements and vitamins. Honestly my experience was top notch and something I really looked forward to. He has an upbeat positive personality.

This month was my 83rd birthday, and I've never felt more fit, flexible, or strong. She pays close attention to my particular needs and abilities, and is always concerned with safety. The gym is small, friendly, and devoted to personal training.

Donna is the absolute best!! Not only a Fittness trainer, she's a great life coach and friend. I've been working w her for years and plan on working w her for many more years to come bc every time I finish working out w her I feel so much better about myself.

I love Donna!! She's the best!! So motivating and encouraging, she helps keep me accountable for my diet and Fittness. She's more than a trainer, Donna is a great role model, and her story is inspirational.

I've been training with Dan consistently over the past year, 2x's a week. This is honestly the best shape I've ever been in my life! Dan makes sure to switch up his workouts to keep them challenging and also fun. Adding circuit training to my weekly regimen has not only changed my appearance, it has also improved my overall health. You'll find yourself getting into the habit of staying active on your own time and making better choices when it comes to your diet. I highly recommend getting on track with a trainer who will motivate you to live your best life! Thank you for everything, Dan!! :)

If you want a trainer who knows exactly what you need to get into shape, be healthy and look great, Dan Padilla is the man you want. He is not only knowledgeable, he really cares about how well his clients do. I had 3 trainers before Dan and I just wasted my time and money until I met him.

First of all, its great to see Mami going independent. I am her former client, I moved to Chicago a while back, but hey, this girl really changed my body type from being obese to being in shape. I still do most of the work out that she has taught me and as she has done many sports such as gymnastics, martial arts, and dance, she taught me all the hard yet great conditioning that no trainers have never taught me. She is awesome, sweet, and super bad ass, yet she is hardcore some point because she wants to see her clients successfully reaching their goals. Thank you for asking me to review you, girl, and you know I got your back, and I know you will do awesome. I can see her completely successful doing on her own.

She is a very creative and motivated trainer and knows how to train others w some fun exercises. I don't like jogging or treadmill for that I have to do like 10-20minutes. So she came up w some fun cardios to make me forget that I am training. Well training is supposed to be fun, and by having fun and often times being pushed by her, I have been losing weight and gaining a toned body. She has dance, gymnastics, martial arts skills and she is capable of mixing those exercises into our sessions. Her nutrition knowledge is great as well. Been with her for about 3months already. She motivates me and tells me that I can achieve any!!

I actually met her thru a friend of mine, who was one of her close friends. I had hired several personal trainers but until Mami showed me her own training routines I was never happy. I wanted to get some good toned butt and get rid of my belly fat, after doing her routines for just 4 weeks, I started noticing my body is really rocking hot, and not only me, but all my friends and coworkers noticed the change on my body. She is a multi talented woman who can also listen to others when they need someone to talk to. I still do her routines and I could never be happier about the way I look!! Thanks, Mami!

Simply put, Justin is fantastic! Unlike many trainers, he actually knows what he is talking about and genuinely cares about you and your results. He has a way of making the most challenging workouts really fun! I've never done a whole lot of weightlifting before but after training with Justin, I've noticed significant strength gains! Not to mention my arms and back look way more toned now. :) My biceps are pure muscle thanks to Justin! I could go on and on! There's no other way to say this. If you're looking to change your life for the better, reach out to Justin!

Justin is an outstanding personal trainer. He and I have been working together for about a year now, and my results have been excellent. I'm the strongest I have ever been, and I've managed to do it while avoiding any of those pesky lifting injuries you get over time. Justin has deep knowledge of both traditional (bench, squat, deadlift) and athletic lifts (kettlebell, bodyweight) and a strong grasp of mobility that make him a truly great asset on your exercise journey. He's highly recommended!

Increasing strength and doing moves I wouldn't think to do and wouldn't think I could do. 3 months of personal training = Deadlift 62 to 118 lbs for 5 reps, Bench press 75 to 100lbs for 5 reps, Turkish get up 30lbs for 1 rep, goblet squat 35 lbs to 62 lbs for 5 reps.

I found Amber when a mutual friend of ours recommended her for what I was looking for with my personal goals (lose weight, get strong and healthy). I wanted to do crossfit but I was too intimidated to go into a crossfit gym because I felt like my fitness wasn't up to par, so I chose to do one on one training with Amber. She was extremely friendly and approachable and obviously loves what she does. She helped me modify the movements for my injuries and my level of fitness. She also helped me make a training plan that I could do on my own. With Amber's help, I've just been able to join a crossfit gym and not feel like I shouldn't be there. Unlike other trainers I've had, I don't dread seeing Amber before we work out, I look forward to it!

I've had a number of trainers over the years, and genuinely I believe Amber is the best. The workouts are challenging, and sometimes leave me gasping on the ground, but they are always completed. She pushes me hard, but she knows how hard she can push. Each workout is always different, and therefore never boring. Every few months she sets a new goal and I impress myself with what I'm able to accomplish with her encouragement. She's also been really accommodating with a recent (out of gym) injury and has made it possible for me to continue exercising while I heal. I could go on, but in short, Amber is the best!

Amber is an excellent personal trainer. Her workouts are challenging, interesting and fun. She is the perfect combination of tough and motivating, knowing just how far she can push you. She puts emphasis on good form and includes core work. I walk away from every workout having learnt something about my inner athlete.

I was referred to Ryan through a mutual friend and took him up on his strength training program. I was not disappointed! Ryan was very professional and fun to be around. Some trainers can be all business and boring, but he was easy to talk to and made the few months I worked with him enjoyable. The great thing about the way he trains is that he understands your goals aren't the same as everyone else's, he tailors the program to your specific needs. Also, not only is he knowledgable with weight training, but he understands diet and nutrition as well. I needed a lot of help in that department and was able to come out of the experience with knowledge to take with me for the rest of my life. The results? In just a few months I was able to (finally) add some size to my chest and arms, as well as come down from a 34 waist to a 32. I don't know about you, but that's a win for me! Overall, I definitely feel I got what I paid for and would absolutely recommend him to others. Don't hesitate, give him a shot. You've got nothing to lose (except fat) and everything to gain (knowledge, energy, muscle)!!!

I lost over 30 lbs and feel more in shape and energetic than ever, and I owe it all to him. He was able to push me in the most motivational yet understanding way.

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!

Marielle is fantastic. I've met with trainers who have little interest in tracking changes, discussing a diet and lifestyle regimen, or really what it takes to be committed to your overall health - she does all of that and more. She is not satisfied with the same workout every time we meet - she mixes it up and pushes past where we were at our last session - thank you! She sets attainable goals that we meet at our sessions together. Again, I've trained in the past with folks who want to do the same thing every time we meet and I find myself losing interest in the workouts and their training. She is a professional. She shows up on time, responds to requests, is punctual and friendly. I couldn't recommend Marielle more. I wish I had stupid money so I could see her 5 days a week.

BEST TRAINER I'VE EVER HAD! I came to Marielle weak and totally out of shape. She pushed me to my limit, but never made me 'dread the workout' like some other trainers do. She makes the workouts fun and explains everything. She actually cares about your progress. She will not only help you with your workouts, but she will help you with your diet and do her best to inspire you to be the best version of yourself. She is accommodating, to both physical attributes and to scheduling. I've been training with her for almost a year now and will never train with anyone else again, she has changed my view on working out and having a healthy lifestyle. I highly recommend her, she really is the best.

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.
