I have had trainers before. However, never one like Megan, who cares beyond the workout. Her overall wellness lifestyle is motivating and inspirational. Her classes are filled with support and drive. I like that she is not a pushover or a Drill Sargent. Most of all she knows her stuff. She is always reading and learning, adding more credentials to her resume...and keep classes fresh and different. What she has created is a community of wellness with her blog, videos, and app. I would recommend Megan to anyone who wants to make a positive change in their life.
I’ve used a lot of professional trainers before, but this is the first time that I’ve seen someone that knows the science of how to get your body back into action and shape, while making sure you’re enjoying it too. He makes the sessions very different every time so your body doesn’t get used to it and you’re looking forward to the next workout. He’s very professional and at the same time makes it very fun. Highly recommend him.
There are many trainers in San Diego County. They offer the standard service, if you show up they will do their job for an hefty fee. But you know at the end of the day they could really careless if your reached your goals or if your life truly improves. Sifu Ferreira is a wolf in sheeps clothing! Other trainers or sheep, will find various ways to over commit and under perform for their clients. Mr. Ferreira will enlist his clever approach to invoke a character logical change on a phenomenal level to help to define, identify and achieve what it is you really desire! (in plain english... He is really good) While other trainers pose as alphas boasting they can deliver results and lead their clients to success. The truth is the chronically fall short in the true commitment it takes to really help a person change their life. The passion and drive he possesses comes alive in all Sifus interaction with his clients. Mr. Ferreira instills a true grit perspective to his work. There is an unprecedented change induced within each persons life he touches. This phenomenon is uncharacteristic of any other relationship you will ever know. For the past 20 years he has made people and the improvement of their overall health/life an art. If you are just looking for someone to help you shed a few vanity pounds, he can do that job with ease! As many of his other testimonials will tell you. However, for someone who needs a fundamental overall, from the word go Mr. Ferreira, can offer shift in perspective no on else can! I have had many other experiences with other trainers, and Sifus unconventional no nonsense approach is the best I have found. I trust and have trusted this man with my life. I know with each interaction his only agenda is helping me reach the goals I set for myself. He has taught me to trust myself, and I can achieve the things that I am put my mind to! Other testimonials fall short in mentioning the insight, and perspective each interaction with Mr. Ferreira brings. People become overweight for many reason, Laziness is hardly ever the root cause. Sifu Ferreira is a master craftsman, if you give him the raw material (which is you), he will return someone you will not recognize. Together, as a team working with Sifu Ferreira professional guidance you will achieve your goals. You will get the desired results and you want. Sifus approach may be unconventional by some standard terms, however you can not dispute the results. During Sifus 8- week challenge I departed with 30 inches over all. I dropped two sizes, and I have more energy than ever before. I know LOVE getting up at 4:30am and MISS it like breathing when I do not! I have learned I am a capable woman. I can also get what I want. My overall health has benefited greatly! I still have work ahead of me, but Sifus passion has become contagious. Sifu s has told me I will not always be there. I beg to differ! Even when his not around he is in my head! That is his gift, he is able to get inside your head and show you your ugly side! The best part about is it is as temporary as you make it! Sifu shows you how to take change beyond physical, it becomes both mental and physical .Which leads to a complete change! THANKS!!!!!
I was initially hesitant to make the jump to personal training since I had been going to a gym for a long time and felt I already knew what I needed to do. Once I started to stagnate yet again by plateauing on my strength and losing my motivation to go, I decided to finally make a change. Working with Tom was an incredible experience and really changed how I worked out. I came in thinking I knew everything and there wasn't much he could teach me. It didn't take long for me to realize how wrong I was. His depth of knowledge is amazing and when talking to him I could tell he was always learning more and never getting complacent. He corrected a lot of my bad mechanics that I'd developed over the years and taught me some new movements to incorporate into my routines. I really appreciated the fact he could explain exactly why my mechanics were poor and why I needed to change them. Initially I needed that explanation to understand the reasoning and establish a trust with him. Eventually I got to a point I just did what he said since I had complete faith in his coaching, although if I asked he would always tell me why. The overall result has been I can currently lift more than I ever could before and I'm not injuring myself like I used to. I also really appreciated how he approached coaching me. He could read my mood and know how he needed to interact with me whether it was as a coach, a cheerleader, a buddy, or a hardass to push me. I may not be the easiest to work with but he always found a way to motivate me despite whatever my mood/mindset was. Training with Tom has been a great experience overall and I just wish I made the decision to do it earlier.
Rochelle starting training me after I had my twins (I also have a 2 year old). With three babies in 2 years I really needed some help jump starting my exercise routine, and getting my body in shape. Rochelle was the perfect trainer to get me back on track for feeling strong and healthy. I have been working with Rochelle for 3 months now and am seeing great results. Rochelle has the perfect balance of pushing me, encouraging me and helping me get to my goals. I LOVE her coaching style! She's also a mom so she understands the challenges of having small children, trying to balance a busy schedule and knowing what your body has been through during and post pregnancy. With a busy schedule it's tough to make time for yourself, and I am really enjoying having 2 hours a week dedicated to working with Rochelle. She has been such an important part of my life the last several months and I am so thankful she is training me!
It has been great having Elle as our trainer. We (my wife and I) used her for 2 months kicking our butt into gear. She had a eclectic mix of routines for us each time that were fun, but wore us out! I would highly recommend using Elle to jump-start a workout regimen or to freshen up an old one... or to simply motivate you to continue.
I just finished my first week and it feels great! The trainer is very supportive and approachable. I like that he lets me go at my own pace but pushes me to work hard, respectfully. Especially, since I am new to the whole trainer and building muscle :) What I enjoy the most is the workouts are simple to do but work out a variety of muscles. Trust me you feel it the next day and you know your getting stronger. The location is also great because it is very accessible and there is always parking.
Hillary is an amazing personal trainer! I have to say I'm a bit picky coming from Denver where there are a lot of great athletic trainers, but she won me over within the first training I had with her. Hillary brings great exercises to each class that really help achieve my goals, long-term, while keeping me motivated and engaged in the interim. She is great at giving positive feedback on form and tips on how to increase the intensity of each move to get even more results. Can't wait for my next workout with her!
I have known Kendra for more than four years and consider her one of the most transformational people with whom I have worked. Her ability to share her knowledge of physiology, combined with her ability to address critical health issues related to nutrition and active living, make her an inspiration who has helped me personally change my bodyand therefore life. I am confident that she will do equally well with all clients in training and perfecting their physical capabilities. I began working with Kendra in DC with the goal of losing weight and getting into shape. After surgeries on each knee, I had lost mobility, agility, and the ability to run and play sports. This lack of activity led to an increasingly sedentary lifestyle. I had gained 30 pounds and lost significant motivation to work through the pain felt by what was previously easy exercise. I specifically met with Kendra because of her specialization in working with athletes in strength training and conditioning in the hopes that she would be able to help get me in shape to run, ski, and even be competitive again in simple sports such as flag football. From our first meeting, she demonstrated deep knowledge of anatomy and physiology. She researched the specifics of my injuries, and developed an evaluation routine that I underwent for a month to help measure my range of motion, stability, stamina, and strength. The results were used as a baseline against which Kendra created a tailored exercise plan. After four months, I had lost 10 pounds and was back on a treadmill. Most importantly, I was enthused to keep going. Kendra continued to create regimented exercise plans with interim milestones and a final goal, incorporating research, updates received from her attendance at professional association events, and through her collaboration with other trainers. For example, she developed a strength training routine for me based on a combination of National Academy of Sports Medicine recommendations. She updated the plans at least quarterly, and would demonstrate each exercise and movement with me to ensure that I was able and confident in what I was to do. Many clients have benefitted from Kendras ability to stay abreast with current research and trends in strength training. Through individual and group training sessions, she exhibits her ability to apply her knowledge to the needs of specific clients. She works with a range of clientele along with other trainers to incorporate input and feedback in her design of classes and exercise plans. Over the years in which I have worked with her, Kendra has always strived for and succeeded in understanding the root cause of clients physiology and joint issues. More importantly, she invests in her clients as people - taking into account their personal motivations, mental well-being, and lifestyles - never judging nor dictating regimens that are unattainable. Two years into working together, I owed her for getting me in shape to run with ease, handle the slopes of the Rockies, hike throughout China, and be confident with my 35 pound-lighter body. Four years later, Ive kept the weight off, remain active, and owe it all to Kendras training!
Our experience with Anita, owner of Speedy's Fitness has been fantastic. She trains my two teenage boys. Occasionally she trains me as well. We will never go to another fitness center. Bob and Anita Spartage are the best trainers.
My trainer Sanj was very professional, motivating and really knew what I needed and made the change happen. He pushed me on every single workouts and made me keep a food and workout diary and checkd it often. It was great being accountable like that and being such a positive motivator. I felt amazing and am so happy with my results. Thank you Sanj for getting me in shape and on a healthier life style.
Baya is an experienced trainer who has personally trained for various races all her life, including the ultimate ironman triathlons. Noone knows better than she, yet she is patient and accommodating. She inspires others by her way of life: She's the ultimate health and fitness coach
I am extremely happy training with Justin. I've never worked with a private trainer before and Justin made me feel quite at ease. He tailored his approach to suit my needs and went far beyond my expectations. He has a friendly caring attitude and not only focused on my physical training but also on my mental approach and gave me some great mind training techniques to work on as well. Overall Justin is a top notch trainer with lots of experience and for a fraction of the cost of big name trainers. I highly recommend Justin and cant wait for my next session.
I began training with Cliff about 6 months ago. My goal was to get faster and more explosive for football this coming fall. Since starting my training I've improved my 40 yard dash and increased my vertical jump by 6 inches! I feel that my feet have gotten quicker and my body overall feels very strong. This is the best I've felt going into a season, and I can definitely say I owe it all to Cliff's training. If you are a young athlete trying to get better at your sport, I highly recommend working with Cliff !
Sam is one of the best trainers I have ever worked with. She knows her profession and has helped me improve on my weaknesses and strengths regarding sports performance and on the basketball court training as well. She is worth way more than what she charges and is a great deal for what you get out of it! As a Division one athlete she understood the quality of training I needed and her program exceeded my expectations .
Before I found Cat, I was at a dead end in my life. Feeling lost and usless to my husband and three kids. I had no energy or patience to cook, play or spend time with either of them. That was not how I imagined life as a stay at home mom. I felt the guilt weighing in on me more and more everyday. I was depressed, high anxiety, falling apart mentally and emotionally. We were eating fast food almost everyday, some times twice in one day. We spent more time on our devices then we did with one another. All of us walked around with short tempers, anger and resentment. I could feel my family growing so distant with our bad habits, lack of positive structure and respect for one another. It was getting out of control. I was aware that no one should be living this way especially those I love and care so much for. That's when I made the decision to seek out help. I came across Cat through a search on yelp. Her title "holistic nutritionist and transformational life coaching" grabbed my attention immediately. I had no idea what I was in for when I made that first call. What. A. Ride. She flipped my life right side up and although her pricing was a bit above our middle class family budget, I couldn't be happier to have hired her! I'm actually getting teary eyed just writing this. She is the sweetest person you could meet and though we differ in age and background she still seems to truly understand and relate to my struggles in life. She's given me endless support and has never made me feel guilty for my failures. In fact she lends out her hand, helps me back up and reminds me of all the acomplishments I have achieved so far. Let's me know I have it in me to keep moving forward with my growth. She's given me the tools to help with my anxiety and self control. Before I felt so overwhelmed grocery shopping and cooking. Now I have all the confidence meal planning, prepping and making wholesome meals for my family everyday. We almost never eat out anymore! I've now the energy to spend quality time with my family. Not to mention my husband and I have lost over 20 pounds combined and my little one is back down to a healthy weight. Cat guided me gradually into letting go of old habits and beliefs that weren't serving me anymore. And transitioned my mindset to see my trials as a learning experience. Our family has grown so close in these last 3 months, more than we ever have in the past 10 years. My children are also health conscious now, they're known to ask their grandparents if what they're feeding them is gluten free and organic (hehe). And my 8 year old says his dream job when he gets older is to be a personal trainer, he would make for an amazing one! When looking back on how far we've come with all the changes Cat has helped us make I get an overwhelming feeling of gratitude and just feeling blessed. The satisfaction of this feeling surely beats any feeling I've ever gotten from my old habits and short lived gratifications. I would highly recommend Cat to anyone looking to improve their mental and physical health in a holistic way. I promise you won't be disappointed.
Danielle has been a true pleasure to work with. She is flexible, easy going, and a great trainer. I have really enjoyed working with her and saw results after 3 sessions. After watching me have results and enjoying my workouts, my husband jumped on board. After the first week he was sleeping better and feeling great. Daniella is awesome - I highly recommend her!
I worked with Anthony from my sophomore year of high school to my senior year, and his training truly prepared me to be a Division 1 athlete and helped to keep my body healthy. When I first started training with Anthony I had a shoulder injury that prevented me from performing on the volleyball court and left me with constant shoulder pain, after a few months my injury was not only healed but I was actually playing better than I ever had. Throughout my time training with Anthony I gained 6-8 inches on my vertical jump and became much more powerful and explosive on the court allowing me to play on high level teams and be recruited by top schools throughout the nation. All of the training was very specific to my sport and it definitely showed. The focus on not only pushing my strength, but doing the lifts with the right technique kept my body healthy while still growing much stronger. Coming in to division 1 volleyball after working with him I was not only prepared, but ahead of the curve for our demanding strength and conditioning workouts. All in all, working with Anthony not only saved my shoulder and therefore my volleyball future, but helped make my entire body stronger and ready for the high impact of a division 1 sport!
Training with Branden was a great experience. He made me do many exercises from bear crawls, push ups, mountain climbers, jump squats, to what ever he can push me to do. I never really did weight training til I worked out with him. He pushed me to a limit I never knew I could reach. He genuinely cares for his clients and believes in you when you don't believe in yourself and that's is a quality that makes him the best! So if your looking for an outstanding life coach/trainer BRANDEN NICHOLSON is your man!!!
Lexi is amazing. I'm am a 40 year old female nurse and I had tried everything to lose weight. All I would do was yoyo diet and lose and gain---until I met Lexi. She put me on a fitness schedule and helped me with my diet. One thing I loved about Lexi's workouts besides the fact that they deliver results, is that I never got bored. They vary from session to session and got my heart rate up. She also explains why we are doing the exercises we do so I learn a lot. She isn't one of those trainers that just counts along. If she sees me struggling, she jumps right in and sweats alongside with me. Everything she has taught me and the results I've gotten have changed my life. In 3 months, I lost over 20lbs and gained lean muscle. I am so lucky to have her as my trainer.
Kasia guided me to a new way of life thru diet and exercise!! I lost 20 lbs and feel so much better. She really cares❤️ She tailored my workouts based on my age and fitness level. She is an amazing trainer and life changer and I'm forever grateful 😀
I have been a competive athlete all my life and when I entered my forties, it became more and more difficult to stay in shape. It never occurred to me that was doing it wrong. Working out that is. Well...I was. I was a typical runner/weight lifter and when I felt like I was getting out of shape, I would run more and lift more. WRONG! Last year in 2009, I found myself in a situation where I needed to drastically increase my fitness level so I could become a member of an elite tactical team. The try out was ridiculous. Just to pass mith a minimum score, I had to run a 440 meter sprint in under 75 seconds. I had to do 65 perfect push-ups, 65 full sit-ups, 15 dead hang pull-ups and run a military obstacle course in under four minutes! ALL WITH NO REST, ONE EVENT RIGHT AFTER ANOTHER! I couldn't do it. Could you? I heard about Brian at Motiv8 Personal Training and I gave him a shot. Wow! Not only did I pass the physical challenge, I smoked it! I can't speak highly enough of Brian and what he was able to do for me and my overall fitness level and health in general. I am in the best shape of my life! I have a washboard stomach and I am 44! I now smoke guys half my age! Even though I played college football and competed in martial arts, I had no idea how to train. I mean really train. Brian at Motiv8 Personal Training did it for me. He literally changed my life. If you don't do it, you're nuts!
I didn't have a clue about working out I was always that guy at the gym jumping from machine to machine. Then a friend referred me to Ryan and it's been nothing but muscle gains and serious conditioning Thanks RYAN!!!!
Stacy is one of the most driven and professional trainers I have ever met. She takes her job very seriosuly and makes sure you are challenged. Even when I was recovering from surgery, not only did she take the time to adjust my workouts during this time, but she continued to encourage me to continue challenging myself. I would highly recommend Stacy.
Let me start by saying Im 49, have ankle/knee injuries, I'm 70 lbs overweight and not to mention I stand just under 5 feet tall? Going into this I knew I had a lot of work to do, but my question was, Did Strive understand they had a lot of work to do also? I decided to speak with Strive on Miramar Road in San Diego because they are in in the middle of work and home. The 1st person I met was Anthony, Fitness Director. I had no idea what I wanted or what I was looking to do. I know I wanted to feel better and look better. Anthony was very knowledgeable about what my body was or was not doing. My 1st response was $392 a month is a lot of money for telling me to jump around and lift a weight. However, I am also a firm believer in paying good money for good service. And believe me its so much more then jump around and lift a weight! The 2nd person I met was Stephen; Wow, I put that poor man through the ringer. He is the one who schedules, stays in contact with the customer, re-schedules if need be and answers ANY of your questions. After dealing with me and my fear of commitment, I think hes heading for sainthood. He never once lost is cool with me What he did after he hung up the phone could be another story. Thank you Stephen! The 3rd person I met was my trainer, Nahid She is absolutely the BEST person you will ever meet in your life. If you feel lost and not sure what direction you need to go in, she is there to help you get where you want to be. I made a promise to myself that I wouldnt say no to anything she asked me to do. She is well aware of my ankle and knee injuries and she was able to get me to do several squats and several lunges that I have never been able to do until now Shes personable, understanding, motivating and above all patient with me .there are at least a million other positive words I could use to describe her. She's a truly genuine person! Did I happen to mention Ive only been with Strive less than a month? I have a long way to go to reach my goal, but I know if I can put in the same effort theyve put into me, Ill be successful. Only you can invest in yourself, no one else will do it for you .Why not have a good team backing you up all the way through it! Thank you Strive I look forward to a long lasting relationship with you! Sherry
Andrea King will blow your expectations out of the water. She goes so much farther with fitness then I would have imagined! I have had another personal trainer in the past, and there is no comparison. Andrea is THE Best. She is highly approachable to begin with. Her calm energy makes you feel at ease, as if you can talk to her about anything. She listens to your concerns and what all you want to work on, and will go out of her way to make sure you meet your goals. She develops a fully comprehensive nutrition plan made just for you. That includes allergy restrictions and sensitivities. I don't know other trainers that do that. She also gives you the tools to succeed far after your training with her has ended. Since working with Andrea, I have learned several things about my health and back pain that doctors and physical therapists could never address. I also have learned better time management. My husband and I are both thankful that we chose the real deal.
I am really enjoying working out with the GAIN Personal Training service. I love the expertise of my trainer (Emily) I admit, even more, love that I don't have to think about the exercise program or what to do next. She tells me through the app and the flexibility of doing my workout whenever and where ever I want is perfect for a full time, traveling, working mom like me!
I'm an athlete trying to increase my speed and explosiveness. Ryan and the crew at NLT got me to that next level. It wasn't all about supplements and such like the competitors but more about the dynamics of body mechanics. I learned how to best move myself. My 40 yard dash was shortened by a 3/4 of a second and by vertical jump increased by 5 inches!
