I worked with Baron for a month while I was working in San Jose. My goal was to kick start myself back into a healthier lifestyle and hopefully lose some weight. What impressed me about Baron was his smiley approach to each training. He ensured that each training was a challenge but we always had fun. He was able to give a comprehensive work out despite the poor resources in my hotel gym. By the end of our time together I had toned up and built muscle. I did not lose weight (one of the intended goals) but felt that I had been given the kick start that I had asked for to help me step back to a healthier life style (main goal). In hindsight I would have asked Baron for more help nutritionally (though I am not sure if this is a service offered). To wrap up though...I had a lot of fun and always looked forward to my training which I cannot always say about a gym session. It was a great way to spice up my fitness regime and I would certainly recommend Baron to others.
After years and years of wanting to have a personal trainer, I always pushed it off. But something about turning 25 was a wake up call for me. So I made the plunge and did my research and looked into plenty of Personal Trainers but none of them really stood out. It wasn't until using this service and Anthony reaching out to me is a very fast manner that I took the opportunity to meet with him. Let's just say after a quick 15 min phone call and getting to know one another, I was hooked and ready to go. I started my training session on Monday and for someone who really hasn't stepped foot in a GYM or lifted weights, Anthony understands that and works to your level. During the 30 min workout (which felt longer at times haha) he was with me every step of the way, motivating and encouraging me to complete my sets. It has truly been the best investment I have ever made and look forward to accomplishing my goals. You won't go wrong with God's Gym & Anthony as your trainer. This guy knows his stuff!
I have had Personalized training from Evan and he has been outstanding. He tailors the workout routines according to your fitness level and also is very conscious of your injuries. I had a ACL surgery on my knee a couple of years back and he was very mindful of that and making sure that I don't injure myself. He also gave me good nutrition guidance which I did not have before. That along with the workouts have brought considerable change in my fitness level. He is very motivating and good at pushing you by the right amount. I would highly recommend Evan to anyone looking for a personal trainer.
Gerrard offers a high intensity workout, that is engaging and fun at the same time!
I engaged Jackie's services for a home Pilates instructor for my boss who is a highly trained athlete and who is very particular around instructors. Jackie sent one of her two instructors located here in the Bay Area. He is incredibly pleased with the level of instruction, the quality of the training, and in Jackie's overall service, i.e., website, communication, and online payment feature. Highly recommend.
I've worked with other personal trainers in the past. But my experience with John exceeded my expectations for several reasons. Upon meeting him I felt quickly at ease. He was able to quickly assess my physical ability and pushed me just enough past my comfort level. I had an amazing workout! He was very encouraging and positive towards me. It was very obvious he was extremely knowledgeable not only in training but he also came up with a detailed strategy to help me reach my fat loss goals especially with my nutrition. I feel very confidant in his ability to help me. I also know he will keep me free from injury. He exceeded my expectations. It was the best experience I've had with any personal trainer.
My name is Derrick and I am a NBA referee, and ever since I met Xavier I have a deeper understanding about Health and Fitness. He has taking my training to another level of confidence. He has been dedicated to helping me reach the best condition I have ever been in. I would say that he is one of the best trainers out there and I will definitely continue to use him.
Azz is a fantastic trainer who is professional and knowledgeable. When I first met Azz, he inquired about my health history including injuries and limitations. We discussed my personal fitness goals and then the work began! I have been working with Azz for years. Each session we work on aerobic conditioning, interval training, muscle strength and stretching. He also offers great nutritional counseling. At the age of 65, I am stronger now than I was in my 20s!!! Azz offers positive reinforcement while getting me to work hard. And... he is fun and genuine!!!
I trained and took High Intensity Interval Training with Cassie for over three years and she is, simply put, amazing. She motivates you to push yourself but is careful not to let you overdo anything so that you put yourself at risk for injury. She provides excellent training and nutritional advice as well. Cassie is the best!!
James "Intensity" Terry is an outstanding personal trainer, team leader, motivator and educator. James trained me using weights, proper CrossFit exercises, martial arts (under the leadership of my husband, and his Coach, CUNG LE), and his own brand of Intensity training! During my difficult pregnancy James inspired me to do whatever I could and had me back to sumo squats by my second trimester. James leads while jumping in and doing the exercises with you allowing you to go beyond what you have ever done before. Training is about pushing yourself but limiting exposure to injury. James Terry is one of my favorite trainers of all time. My husband, Cung Le, only allowed James to hold mitts for me, when he wasn't able to. That in itself speaks volumes!
I've worked with Giuseppe for about 1.5 months now and am very happy with the progress so far. He created a nutrition plan that fit into my busy lifestyle and the personal training sessions have been intense. I am looking to slim down and he explained very clearly how / when that will happen. I definitely recommend him to anyone who is serious about losing weight.
Working out with Joe has changed my life. I am down nearly 40 pounds in 4 months but, more importantly, I am stronger and more fit person today thanks to Joes workouts. I have been motivated by his own stories of weight struggle and the desire to live a healthier lifestyle. Joe has been in my shoes. He understands my struggles with eating and exercise. And hes crafted a lifestyle change plan for me to help me get over my hurdles and stay on track to meet my fitness goals. He has tailored the workouts to my needs, changing it up to keep it fresh, balancing strength training with cardio exercise to maximize my results.. He has pushed me when I needed pushing and scaled back when he would see me struggle - not to the point where I was giving up but rather reducing the intensity of my workout so that I could finish it and not feel defeated. Hes has motivated me and, despite my resistance and my hate of running, has turned me into a runner - first 1 mile, then 1-1/2, then 2. Today, I am running more than 3 miles on my own several times a week and plan to run in a 5K next month. ME... of all people. I highly recommend Joe as a personal trainer. I am on my second 20-session plan with him and plan to sign up for at least one more to get me through the end of the year and closer to my long-term goal. Beyond that, I plan to start attending his boot camp sessions soon as a way of maintaining my weight once I reach my weight loss goals. "
For years, my workout regimen consisted of running and Pilates. Running strengthened my heart and legs, while Pilates kept my core muscles strong and flexible. But something was missing, and I found that missing piece when I began boxing with Jeremy. Not only is boxing an intensely demanding physical workout, it is a mentally challenging workout as well. A professional fighter himself, Jeremy teaches technique, movement, and combinations while also prepping his clients with cardiovascular warm ups, coordination work, and strength. Jeremy has the patience, the knowledge, and the passion to empower and inspire any individual at any fitness level to reach his or her full physical potential. After finishing a workout with Jeremy, I feel strong, I feel empowered, I feel like my money has been well spent, and most importantly, I've had a really good time. I've learned how to physically defend myself should the situation ever arise, I've become noticeably stronger in my upper body and core, and my overall workout regimen is more balanced. In working with Jeremy, I've not only gained a great trainer, I've gained an advocate for my overall physical and mental wellness, and a friend. -Meredith van Loben Sels, 35
Every Monday and Wednesday a half dozen or so women gather at a local park for an amazing workout/boot camp. The training always includes cardio and core with alternating days of leg work out, arms and whole body. The training is directed and Vanessa pays close attention to intensity and form. She is quick to adjust an exercise if it is beyond an individual's skill and strength! I've been working out with Vanessa for six months and have gotten much stronger! The work outs are fun and never routine. I'm past 65 years old and the rest of the gals are from 35 to 50! Vanessa is amazing in her coaching and training. She is patient yet not afraid to push and challenge! I highly recommend working with her. The only thing that could make it better if she could just control the weather.
Ben is, by far, one of the most professional and dedicated personal trainers I’ve ever met. For starter, he is always punctual and responsive. (Can’t tell you how many times I’ve had a personal trainer cancelled on me last minute.) More importantly, Ben is extremely knowledgeable in his area of expertise. He actually dedicates his time and energy to tailor personalized workout programs that are not only specifically aim to reach my goals, but also accommodating to my body condition. Throughout each training session, Ben always pays extra attention to my techniques for potential improvements. Furthermore, he always manages to come up with different variations of movements to ensure that I can train in the safest and most effective way possible. I noticed substantially amount of muscle and strength gains after a month of training sessions with him. You honestly cannot go wrong with training with Ben!
He is very in-tuned and observant on how my body moves and react to the exercises he prescribes. He adjusts the level of intensity accordingly. He's focused during training sessions but yet knows when to chat and loosen up the intense environment with a good giggle and laugh. I enjoy the variations he introduces as part of my training plan, this way it doesn't make sessions boring and mundane. Encouragement and praise in the form of verbal and a high-five hand slap is very motivating. And after seen my body starting to tone and becomes stronger and of course loosing weight is definitely a huge plus in my books. What a great refreshing experience thus far working with my trainer.
Mario offers customized workouts; i've seen quick progress in strength and endurance as a result of my training with Mario. He is knowledgable, flexible and fun to work out with!
I had just overcome pneumonia and had lost about 10lbs; Dan not only helped me create a reasonable high-calorie diet to regain the weight, but also explained the pros and cons of cardiovascular exercises vs strength training, and how they play into my already high metabolism. His wealth of knowledge in nutrition and fitness was astounding! To the point that I regained the weight in about a month, started taking daily vitamin supplements combined with regular outdoor walking exercise, and included great options for stress management. Due to its success, this has become my health & wellness regime for the past two years.
Jenny has a really great way about her, is very personable and makes the time pass really quickly while slowly ramping up the intensity of the workouts. You don't even notice it and all of a sudden you're doing more reps and running further, faster. I'm doing better already after a few weeks of training and looking forward to what she has in store for us next!
I've been working with Leandro in SF for about a month now. The gym is for clients only. Which I love as I feel comfortable working out there. Honestly, first thing, he's personable and dependable. Additionally, he focuses on creating client-specific programs that work for you. Everything from eating well to an intense workout! He's helping me reach my goals thus far & his background as an athlete (bodybuilding) and knowledge of fitness sets him apart from his competitors. So his services are for everyone; athlete's craving that specific type of workout or clients that want to train hard and stay motivated! I highly recommend this nice guy.

Come and spend 30 mins with me. Learn why High Intensity Interval cardio is more effective for reducing fat and increasing your metabolism. It's not just a trend. Long distance or "steady state" cardio will actually slow down the process of becoming more fit.
