Introduction: Our team of Kinesiologists is the most educated group in the IE. We take the responsibility of our clients giving us their bodies to change seriously. That requires a level of professionalism and expertise. Our team currently holds 8 Bachelors and 4 Masters degrees with specialties in literally every area. We see and design fitness programs as a science because each client has specific needs to fit their current condition and their goals. Our studio is located in Murrieta. The long answer is: In our fitness services, attention to detail in every aspect of the process. We start with an assessment process which breaks down the way each body moves to determine where there is movement dysfunction. This is HUGE! If we have movement dysfunction, sooner or later we get hurt and the only thing that can stop a motivated, dedicated fitness routine is injury. Identifying areas of need right off the bat allows us attend to those areas first so as to reduce the risk of injuries. We use the information during the assessment to develop corrective and resistance exercise programs that also target the body's physiology along with the anatomy. Different fitness goals require different ways of training. During exercise sessions, our service becomes just as much an art as it is science. Finding what makes people click and how they respond to different types of communication is how we keep clients motivated and progressive. Also, the relationships we build with our clients are more than just someone we do business with. We look to really get to know our clients and often, over time, become friends. Our goal is not to just lift up people physically. We want those whom we work with to feel lifted up mentally and emotionally after their time with us. Sometimes that means listening and letting people vent about their day and sometimes that means giving advice. We particularly enjoy mentoring our youth athletes. True health and wellness involves this aspect along with the physical and we want our clients feeling good when they leave their time with us. There are two things that we enjoy about our work more than any other. First, is the complexity and uniqueness of each person's individual situation. We love the challenge of evaluating each person's past history, current situation, and future goals internally and on the surface. By delving deep into the client's situation we can identify the most important issues to attend to. Then we can truly create personalized, efficient exercise and nutrition recommendations specifically for that one person. Secondly, we love the reward of seeing people progress towards and reach their goals. Nothing is more motivating than results. This goes for the client and for us as well. When people see results from their hard work they gain even more momentum to keep moving forward. When we see clients light up because they are meeting and surpassing their goals, it increases our energy and passion for helping them. That cycle is amazing fuel! In our nutrition services, first, we work as a team. I have 3 functional nutritionists and 1 registered dietician on staff. We collaborate on client cases to assure that our clients get the best service possible for their situation. We also don't just tell people what to eat and what not to eat. We spend a lot of time helping them integrate a healthy way of eating into their lifestyle. We understand that everyone is busy and they need something that works for their job, family, time, and budget constraints. We also do a lot of the grunt work of telling them where they can find items for the best price. One aspect that we're very proud to offer is that we are always available to them via phone, email, or text. Our coaching program is 24/7 not based on billable hours. If they are out at a new restaurant and don't know for sure what they should choose, we are essentially right there at their side.

I was contacted shortly after my request by Eric. We discussed my options and set up a consultation at PHP the next day. The trainers are really friendly and listen to any feedback you may give. The family was very welcoming of me and I truly appreciate that. The facility is clean, organized, and the perfect environment for reaching your fitness goals. I hope anybody who is interested in fitness, joins PHP to see maximum results.

After a long deliberation with my self , I decided to finally get myself a personal trainer. I've never worked out a day in my life (except the normal stroll with my dog , every other day) . So this was a little scary. But thankfully Eric made this experience a wonderful one. From the first email, address me by name and acknowledged my current situation and goals that were included in the questionnaire ( the other trainers I had respond to me, we're like, on auto reply or something. Maybe they were out on vacation? Idk) Anyway, pro health was the best decision I've made. If your nervous about working out, suffer from anxiety or just not sure if you can really pull it off. Eric will help you reach your goals and you'll see results fast. I did. The work out plan he had for me was 100% customized for me. Within the first 2 weeks my butt and hips were getting toner then I've ever seen them, it felt so good seeing my body transform so fast. And to be honest I WAS NOT dieting, HOWEVER at the same time my mind didn't want a bunch of junk food no more and my moods we're so much better and i motivated everyday. Pro health is a perfect example of what a personal trainer should be knowledgeable, ( I had a lot of random questions and he was able to answer them every time ) friendly, confident and makes sure you have a personal experience reaching your goals and keeps you motivated. Keep up the good work! Your amazing

Eric is my personal fitness trainer. I have been going to him for 6 months and I love his patience and flexibility to create a workout plan that works for me. He is also very knowledgeable about nutrition and explains how the two integrate for optimal fitness and health.

Eric responded to my original request quickly and provided a personal response specific to some questions and parameters I had posted. He is professional and demonstrated a high degree of knowledge during the initial evaluation / "on boarding" process. Eric was able to develop a customized plan tailored to reach my goals, taking into account my current musculoskeletal / physical condition, to avoid injury and incorporate proper technique and recovery. His excitement and commitment to his clients clearly shines through. I am already seeing positive gains and solid improvement within 2 full weeks of training with Eric. I look forward to continuing to work with him to achieve my goals and would highly recommend him to anyone who is serious about making a change for the better!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Our pricing depends on the type of service and we have many options so as to fit any particular client. We offer 1-on-1 personal training sessions as well as semi-private,group classes, and even online training. Our nutrition services range from diagnostic testing, personal consultations, and our full coaching program. Some services are monthly, while others are per session or per test.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The first step in our process is to set up an assessment or evaluation. This is an hour appointment where we break down everything. For fitness, we talk about injury and health history, go over goals, and really go in detail on what the difference is between our semi-private and private training options are. During this time we also run potential clients through our Biomotor Screening to look at how their body moves and lines up. This allows us to identify areas of need and in many cases where and why people are experiencing injury or pain. We use this information to create an efficient, truly personalized exercise program. After going through movement assessments, we go into details over scheduling, the cost of services and sign-up paperwork. Our first session after sign-up is teaching the client their personalized homework workout as well as any testing or measurements for us to keep track of. For nutrition, we go through a different version of health history so we can figure out exactly what your body has been going through, what you've done in the past, and what your goals are. We try to focus in on 3-5 main health complaints and put together the picture about why they are where they are and how we should best attend to them. By finding out as much information as possible at the very beginning we are able to deal with the biggest issues first. At this time we would go over any functional labwork that would be beneficial to look at and talk about our first steps working together as well. Once we get lab results we have a clear picture of what is going on inside and we match that with what you told us is going on outside. We then put a plan together to attend to those issues and work through them step by step.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Our team has a vast array of education and training.
