Stephen is very energetic and very passionate. After a discussion to explain what I (don't) know about health and nutrition, we were on our way! Some personal and business issues have interrupted the regularity of my training, July will be rough, but soon we'll be on a more regular schedule which I know will bring me closer to my goals.I'm excited!!

I train with Jessica. I have done 3 training + 1 orientation sessions with her till now. She is awesome and encourages me to push through and finish all the exercises. One thing I really like is she asks me to visualize my goal when I am about to give up and that encourages me a lot. She also has great suggestions about the diet I should follow and also the cardio I should be doing on my own time. She is a really good trainer.

LOVE Anthony! I have already recommended him to friends and family. Can't wait to continue training with him. Super motivating and encouraging. No "boot camp" mentality here. All positive affirmation while also pushing you (but not TOO much) to take your fitness to the next level

I have never been one to enjoy working out or going to the gym, but Evan has changed all of that. He is a great motivator, and has helped me get into the best shape of my life. His nutritional advice and training have helped me lose weight and get stronger. I have a very complicated schedule and Evan has been very accommodating. He has even provided work outs for me to do when traveling. I highly recommend Evan, I am not sure what else one would want in a personal trainer.

Gerard is a great personal trainer! He offers challenging workouts that have pushed me to reach my fitness goals and tailored my workouts to ensure I avoided flaring up any old injuries .I also found great value from Gerard keeping monthly records of BMI ( body mass index) checks , this allowed both of us to see/ track my progress. I also purchase a nutrition plan along with my training sessions this nutrition plan was easy to follow and offer a jump start to meeting my health goals. This nurtion plan was even able to satisfy my sweet tooth, I have fallen in love with protein cookies, thanks to Gerard!

Aaron was a great personal trainer for a beginner like me. I told him what I was interested in -- bulking up overall, and being more physically active. He came up with a full body program and guided me through it. He then motivated me through the workouts in a way that worked for me -- which was explaining the muscle mechanics of the workout. He was also flexible and accommodating of my tough schedule at the time. Super friendly and chill, I'd recommend Aaron for any training endeavor!

I have really enjoyed working with Jackie and her team. Their training method is challenging and fun, and an hour session with them flies by. I am used to doing relatively strenuous weight lifting, cardio, and ballet, and I get a great workout on their program. It also works well for pre-natal, still going strong at 36 weeks!

I recently hired John to help me develop a better training routine and improve my overall strength. He started by scheduling a free consultation to assess my personal needs and then followed up with an hour evaluation of my current capabilities and deficiencies. On the day of my first training session, John had a 4-5 page document prepared that gave me a line item breakdown of my workouts for the next 12 weeks based on my goals. This comprehensive plan also included stretches that help to break up scar tissue that develops from sitting in a chair all day. He also offered to help me with my dieting habits, something that he was currently doing for a handful of other trainees he works with. If you are looking for a thorough approach to improving your overall health and strength, John is your man!

I had Maria come into my office's gym in SF for personal training. I'm pretty out of shape, and I wanted to get back into it. Her sessions are 1 hour long, and she doesn't cut it short. Very patient and will modify her workout to your fitness level :)

Kenny has played a vital role in me sustaining a healthy lifestyle. He takes the time to assess the individualized needs of each client and gives in the moment feedback to achieve optimal results. One of the things I like the most is the workout routines are never the same. I have been client for 2 months and plan to continue my training sessions as part of my lifestyle changes.

I have had several reconstructive knee imjurues and several trainers etc. I'm very active so I wanted to get focused on strengthening my body. Dave is the best trainer I have ever worked with-- His work outs are individually focused and keep changing amd evolving around the client. He shows a unique ability to support the client and push the client to constantly challenge the client to be better. I am in the best shape I have been in my adult life because of my training with Dave. Can't recommend him enough !!!

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!!

I have worked with Jason for several years, he is very professional and personable as well. He is extremely knowledgeable regarding fitness and strives for perfection while improving the overall health of his clients, Jason's down to earth approach is inviting and subtle which allows for a productive environment for physical training, only matched by his aggressiveness at taking on exercises, I thoroughly enjoy working with Jason.

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.

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 have been training with Lacey for the past 9 months and my growth, both physically and mentally has been instrumental. I have been lifting weights for several years, but I am stronger and more confident than ever, thanks to the programming and support of Lacey. Whether you are just getting started in the gym or a veteran needing that extra motivation, Lacey values all skill levels and needs and can create a custom plan that keeps you motivated and working towards your goals. She is flexible with my ever-changing schedule and attentive to my needs and questions. Lacey is easy to talk to and supportive. I recommend Lacey to anyone wanting to see results in the gym! Thanks to Lacey I have gained strength and confidence with both my physical and dietary needs and you can too!

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.

What can I say about Herman besides that he's awesome. I started training with him after a knee injury playing soccer. He's helped me rebalance, strengthen and add explosiveness back to my knee to the point where I feel way stronger than before the injury! He keeps the sessions fun, challenging, and has great knowledge. It's been a year now and I always look forward to what new challenges he has set up for me.

Matt is working with me twice a week on strength training especially for my core. He is very knowledgeable, professional, and very pleasant to work with. He is patient yet on each machine or exercise he frequently asks me if I can go up on weight, stretch further, etc. He creates a varied routine for me & I enjoy the sessions. Matt is always looking out for my safety & guides me as to proper form. He always takes into account my specific weak areas. He is flexible w scheduling. I've worked with three very good trainers however, I feel I've made the most progress toward my goals with Matt. I look forward to my sessions with Matt & my mind/body feel good when I go home. I know I'm in good, professional, experienced hands.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
