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!
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'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.
Great location, flexible hours, and quality training. I highly recommend Fit Club Studios!
I have been training with Adrien for only a few weeks now and I can see definite results already. Adrien is a very inspiring and motivating trainer that goes out of his way to ensure that you get the best training experience possible . Everything from meal programs down to just checking up on you to make sure you’re doing fine. I highly recommend Adrien to anyone who wants to get in the best shape possible.
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.
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.
Judy, Is an amazing fitness training. Very amazing, and impressive with her workout programs that she comes up with. A simple, dumbbells, and jump rope can turn into an 8 week program by Judy's 25 plus years of experience. When I joined Judy's gym, I was bought into another levee of working out that I did not knew exist, that helped me out getting into the fire department. Judy does go above and beyond for her clients, every single one of them that trains in her gym. Like I said, her programs are just that amazing, that Jillian Michaels can learn from her. That is right you read that correctly, Jillian Michaels can learn from Judy, that is how amazing the quality of going to Judy's gym is, that it is just beyond amazing. I highly recommend that everyone that is reading this to join Judy's gym, even just for 3 months and you will see a very big difference with your body for the better part.
I have been training with Mark for the last 2.5 years and I am in my late 50's. I have never felt and looked better. I have two jobs and a hectic schedule. Mark is highly skilled, professional and flexible with training time that fits my schedule. He is one of the best. I was really lucky to meet and and to work with him.
Michael Jennings specializes in fitness training that is tailored to meet the needs of every client! He is a skillful observer of each client's ease of movement, level of strength and endurance and designs workouts to address the needs. He will challenge, adjust, cajole, be a cheerleader - literally do whatever it takes to attain goals. I love every workout with Michael, even on the days when I think he is truly diabolical!
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.
My husband and I both work out with Donna. What we love is how she customizes our workouts for our specific needs. No two training sessions are exactly alike, which make them fun and challenging. She comes up with inventive kick-ass routines to continuously keep us on out toes.
Hiking, running, strength training, and HIIT are just a few of the things she has trained me in. Very well rounded trainer, will easily adjust/ modify the regime to fit individuals with injuries or difficulties. Great with motivating you to increase your intensity.
Rose is an extraordinarily knowledgeable and creative trainer; she is super professional and has a seemingly endless bag of tricks to keep your training routine fresh and engaging - I can't recommend her highly enough - she comes to my building and I am very happy to recommend her enthusiastically to residents and friends.
Kelly helped me get into shape right before I became pregnant. She helped me focus on a work-out plan that fit well with my goals and what I wanted to achieve. She also customized a monthly meal plan exclusively for me and my interests. I couldn't be more happy with her dedication to push me when I needed the drill sergeant trainer, but also balance it out and be supportive when I was not feeling well or sick and needed to take things slow. Another plus factor with Kelly is that she LOVES dogs. We incorporated workouts that helped me focus on myself, without feeling guilty or losing out on time I could spend with my dog outdoors. Kelly is super professional, educated and experienced in personal training. I would recommend her to any of my closest family and friends.
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.
Glenn for the win! Glenn is a phenomenal personal trainer. My husband and I have thoroughly enjoyed training with Glenn and his staff. One thing we really like about Glenn is that he is able to accommodate and help with injuries/rehab and diet question/issues. You can't go wrong choosing Sweat Equity Fitness! Glenn and team are awesome!
My experience working with MPC to hire my first ever personal trainer has been more pleasant than I had anticipated. Previously I had a difficult time in my attempts to hire one on my own but MPC staff (thru Thumbtack) made the process seamless plus my first 2 training sessions were FREE; what a great way to start this journey. They took the time with helping me find the right trainer to meet my specific needs and goals. Upon first entering the facility I felt instantly at ease, there’s really great energy flowing through this space. Anyway, I’m really impressed with the facility layout and the variety of equipment throughout. My chosen trainer turned out to be a great fit, she makes sure I understand why we do the exercises in the order that we do them; she’s a real pro and has a terrific & clever sense of humor. Looking forward to continue training at MPC and possibly hiring some of their other practitioners for different specialties.
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.
I’ve had an amazing experience for the last year. Alex helped motivate me and keep me on track with attaining my goals. He made sure to check in with me when we weren’t training and always had some advice to offer. He made himself available at times that were convenient for me and always tailored my workouts to fit my preferences/needs, and of course to help me attain the body I wanted. He constantly challenged me by changing up my routines. It’s an absolute pleasure working with Alex!
