I've worked with a few personal trainers over the years and I have to say that hands down, Evan is the best trainer I have ever worked with. I started working out with Evan over a year ago. I have chronic low back pain, and had just had a procedure that was meant to reduce swelling and allow me to exercise more and strengthen my core. I had been doing physical therapy for awhile, but found that the workouts were too mellow, and I didn't really notice any improvement in my core strength. My wife had actually been working out with Evan for a few months and she recommended I try a few workouts with him. Evan has been amazing. The workouts are intense and challenging. He focuses on doing intervals of a quick series of strengthing exercises, with a burst of cardio in between sets that keeps your heart rate elevated for the entire workout. Given my back issues, he is very good about checking in to make sure he is not stressing or straining my lower back (or any other injury I might have picked up). I have noticed dramatic improvement in my core strength and overall fitness in my time with Evan. He also has been willing to email me personalized workouts I can do on my own for days when I'm not working out him. I agree with all the other posts here -- 5 stars. Evan is great.
Over the course of four months, I worked with two different trainers. Each was knowledgable, focused on results, professional and courteous. I am very pleased that I selected TrainerSF.
I had signed up to work with Hashim to learn more about proper form, and his methods and knowledge proved extremely effective. He's extremely motivational an an outstanding trainer. My body fat dropped rapidly while my lean muscle mass grew. He pushed me beyond what I thought I was capable and was very encouraging along the way. Hashim made sure to educate me with the proper nutritional habits and workout form to carry forward on my own. Hashim started as a personal trainer for me and became a friend, and I look forward to working with Hashim in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to hit their fitness goals!
We understand that you need to be equipped with the most optimal resources to successfully achieve your health and fitness goals. We have had the chance to accumulate a solid foundation of the health and fitness world over the past few years and have been able to help all of our clients achieve their fitness ideal -- a level of health and fitness they have always wanted to reach, but for whatever reason, had previously lacked the resources. Our main objective has always been to empower clients with both the knowledge and the confidence to pursue a fit and healthy lifestyle because after all, it is a lifestyle. It goes beyond just changing the way you eat or visiting the gym on occasion; it is not only a physical but also a mental commitment. Health and fitness can be considered a science of its own. It takes a lot of time to find the right balance between how much or how often you should exercise to meet your specific goal, what types of foods you should eat to complement your training program, how to avoid injuries, etc. It took me over 2 years to find what worked best for me. I spent countless hours looking up what types of workouts are best for my body type, what time of day is best to workout, what supplements I should take, etc. The millions of opinions you find online more than often confuse you a lot more than they help you, and that is exactly what happened to me. It was a matter of trial and error, and looking back, I wish I would have had someone to guide me along the way and make suggestions as to what would worked best. After all, knowledge is power, and getting the proper knowledge from someone with experience can help put you on the right path to reaching your goals.
