I've sent my wife for a trial session and after first lesson she showed me couple of things that attracted my interest... Now we're both into engaging training that is way more fun than you can expect from routine repetition of the same moves in let's say kick-boxing

As I entered my 60s, I wanted to find a good fitness trainer to keep me in decent shape. I found that person in Colin Lewis. He's knowledgeable, personable, and patient. Whether it was free weights, kettles, planks, or even boxing he always knew just the right equipment, timing, and words of encouragement for an enjoyable, results-oriented, custom training experience.

Not only is Debra a very knowledgeable instructor, she has gained my respect by demonstrating healthy dance/movement/training practices. At every class; she applies and provides injury prevention education with a mindfulness to each student's level. Most importantly she is engaging with a personality that inspires and encourages individual self-expression that can spark a fire of personal growth.

Jeremy and I use to train together in high school, now he trains me while I am trying to get my health and weight back under control since being diagnosed with T2 diabetes. We've been training since Sept 2013 and I have lost 10lb since. Never felt better in years and getting into a strong grove to shake the weight and keep it off. Not only does he trains, but he constantly checks me on my nutrition to regulate what I put in my body. He keeps it fun, active and positive. Always utilizing new methods that he learns from his peers so the training is not always the same every session. If you understand diabetes, it can be difficult to lose the weight while trying to maintain your blood glucose at a safe level. So far together with Jeremy we are on a good pace for me to hit my goal for 190lbs before the end of 2014. Trust in Jeremy! You can't go wrong with FireFitness!

Like a lot of folks, I’ve been trying to balance a busy schedule and spend a lot of hours during the day sitting in front of a computer. I came to Vince looking for help with conditioning and was curious about martial arts. I was also feeling rather nervous and shy about training. My observations so far: Vince listens carefully and knows how to ask questions that get right to the heart of the matter. He’s a rare combination of technical expertise and emotional intelligence, and more importantly a down-to-earth personable coach. He has the ability to drive the big picture (reminding me of goals) while at the same time paying attention to an amazing amount of detail (proper technique training). I absolutely love pad training with him (it caught me off guard how quickly it gets my heart rate going) and he mixes in TRX and Boot Camp elements into our training sessions to keep me engaged. I couldn’t be more pleased with our sessions and look forward to continuing with him. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to feel empowered and experience the benefits of a seasoned coach.

I have been training with Joey for half a month now. Four stars for his awesome personality and great sense of humor, as well as his great insight for physical training. I immediately felt comfortable training with him from my first session. He is very personable, and he is very thorough to show you how to do every exercise without hurting yourself. Fitness Urbano is also a great gym to work out! The staff members are friendly, the environment is super quiet and spacious, and there is no need to wait to use equipment since most gyms are so busy, many people wait to use machines. Also, Joey teaches boxing which I found to be fun! So far, I'm enjoying myself having Joey as my personal trainer. They also have Lola, the owner's dog, who is sometimes at the gym, which is great motivation for me to work out. Dogs are always fun to play with after a work-out session. (Haha) I'm sure after a month or two seeing progress on myself, five stars will be well deserved. :)

So far we have met 3 times. 2 on exercise training, 1 for a massage. And, he is right on cue! I pat myself on the back to have made the right choice (for my first time ever) to have a personal trainer. I won't add any photos (yet) but, in a couple of months, (I'm sure) I'll be able to share the "before" and "after"...photos.

I am still in the beginning stages of training with Alec. I have enjoyed every session, especially boxing. Alec is professional, a very kind person and extremely knowledgeable of everything he teaches. He sincerely cares about you reaching your goals. He always has the time to answer all of your questions and concerns no matter what, even outside of his work hours. I love everything I've learned so far re: the proper nutrition and workouts which will finally have you seeing results. I'm excited to reach the finish line to meet my goal and would highly recommend him to get you there! - Rachael

I love my workouts with Cindy. She is keen with my abilities. I'm an advance exerciser, Cindy's workouts were intense and challenges me. I love the fact that Cindy incorporates kickboxing into my training. I felt every single muscle in my body. 2 days of strength training and 2 days of kickboxing. I look forward to my sessions every day. I'm starting to feel a difference in my body.

Motion Fitness & Martial Arts: is a great place for fitness. Martin is a GREAT instructor, he works with you to make sure you understand the workout and makes sure you are doing the exercise properly. He is very detail oriented and wants to make sure you reach your goal. If you are looking for someone to push you and reach your potential this is the place to go.

Niko Skuljan and I met nearly three years ago (come this June) I posted an Ad on Craigslist for a private one on one Martial Arts instructor (I moved up from San Francisco to Sonoma full time 3 years ago) and decided to give up my Martial Arts trainer in the city, and Niko responded. We agreed to meet, go over in great detail, what my background in training was, what was important for me in my training, and his philosophy on Combat training, in other words....a very comprehensive consultation. The followoing week we began our training. I have been involved in one form of Martial Arts for years, whether it be Judo, A little Tae Kwon Do, Kickboxing and now, with Niko, traditional Boxing, Muay Thai (or Thai kickboxing) as well as Jeet Kune Do (Bruce Lee's form of Martial Artistry) as well as a little Wing Chun. Niko Skuljan is very adverse in ALL of these forms of combat training! He is passionate, very patient, always reliable and extremely knowledgeable! And has an eye like a hawk! Nothing gets by Niko! Never fails to correct your form or stance, but also demonstrates it for you, so you have a visual to go by. We film our sessions, and He and I agree, that is a great way to see whatever might need correcting or what is being executed precisely! He and I have developed a friendship as well (as he is a highly intelligent individual and someone you feel an immediate connection or bond with) Even if Niko is delayed with traffic (as he lives in a different town then Sonoma) he is always fair and we always make up the time on another day of training. I would highly recommend Niko Skuljan to anyone that is considering taking their Martail Arts training to a much higher level! He certainly has mine! Len H. Sonoma, CA

About

Elite Training Center provides a fitness program that includes "box-r-cise," CrossFit training, fitness kickboxing, and weight training. With over 10 years in the boxing industry and 15 years as a personal trainer, founder and owner, Paul Rubio, designed this fitness program with the objective of having each individual reach their fitness goals. No matter what fitness level you are in, this is for you. Train like a professional athlete (at your pace ) with all the benefits and no downfalls. We all know professional fighters are in great shape, so what Elite Training Center has done is joined together a fighter's workout along with standard fitness workouts. By combining these two types of training, people are able to reach fitness goals they never thought were possible. Each class provides fun and challenging workouts that always change; it is never the same boring program over and over. By changing the workout constantly promotes muscle confusion and prevents muscle plateau. Additionally, every exercise is modifiable, so there are no excuses, and anyone can take these classes. If you're ready to make a life change or take your fitness to the next level, come on in; try our program. I guarantee that you'll see results in the first month, or we will give you an additional month for free. The free month offer is based on a minimum of 4-days-a-week training your first month.
