Stephen incredibly knowledgeable and has a wonderful personality, and will push you beyond your mental (which I need most) and physical limits to get most out of the training without screaming at me. He is fully focussed on you while training and whenevwer time permits he quickly jots down my progress and motivates me with all the Instagram recordings :) he is either working out with me to demonstrate or couting my reps or recording the video for my reference. there is decent progress within a month and i am hopeful that I will achieve my target soon with help and motivation from him. I strongly recommend him to anyone for best body and mind :)
Corey is an awesome trainer. First off he asked me what my goals were and when I wanted to reach them. At first I just wanted to drop a few pounds, but then I had to change that to prep for a physical exam for a couple different police departments I was applying for. Corey didn't miss a beat and engineered a plan that not only helped me accomplish my original goal, but got me ready for my employment placement tests. Another great thing about Corey is that he gets to know your personality. I am a bit of a tomboy and really like the outdoors-I hate treadmills or any machinery that doesn't let me move out. Corey encouraged my love of hiking and incorporated that into our workout plan and after a few weeks of circuit training, he introduced me to boxing (which I have come to LOVE). His process works! All the exercises we did during circuit training came together in the boxing lessons and I was thrilled! Corey listens to his clients, gets to know them and works with them towards their goals in a way that is both fun and effective! I don't hate exercising anymore! Thanks Corey!
I have had a wonderful experience training with Anthony at God's Gym! He tailors each work out to my abilities, challenges me to incrementally work harder to build strength, but does not push me beyond my abilities or risk injury. Work outs are challenging, get my heart pumping and leave me with the "good" muscle soreness for a few days. There is minimal downtime in the 30 minute sessions, thus there is no wasted time. This contrasts to my experience during training sessions at other gyms. I feel that these sessions are consistently higher yield compared to my other gym experiences. Anthony, himself, is awesome. He is kind, patient, has a great sense of humor. He is VERY encouraging. He provides nutritional guidance specific for your goals. My schedule can be quite variable, and he has consistently accommodated this so that I could make as many training sessions as possible. The entire team at God's gym is very welcoming and supportive. A great environment, and an amazing community that I am now happy to participate in! Also, I would recommend that those considering this gym should not be "turned off" by the name if they are not religious, people of faith, Christian, etc. This is a comfortable and welcoming place for ALL people to train. :)
I first started working with Evan about 3 years ago and have benefitted tremendously from HIS hard work. He is constantly expanding his knowledge base, testing the latest nutrition and training fads, measuring them against the tried and true and satisfying himself that clients will benefit before unleashing them on us. And when he does unleash his learnings - watch out! The workouts are tough and engaging and if YOU do it right you will leave exhausted, but feeling great, and aching to come back and do it again. And again. Without the personal fortitude to get to the gym without an appointment, I find Evan's routines - and the results - the perfect motivation. I have been an extremely happy, regular client for all 3 of the years I've been training with Evan. I travel frequently for work, so Evan has helped with routines and exercises that can be done in my hotel room. He is also capable of accommodating that travel schedule and training me on a somewhat random, somewhat regular basis, but always picking up where we left off and pushing me/encouraging me to the next level of fitness and awareness. His considerable skills and conscientiousness aside, Evan is funny and interesting, so the sessions are not JUST about training and nutrition. He's worldly and has lots of worthwhile news, stories and information to share. I highly recommend him!
At age 53, I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and osteoporosis of the spine and hips. Following a successful surgery to remove my thyroid, my endocrinologist recommended that I pursue weight and resistance training in conjunction with a year-long course of daily injections to treat my osteoporosis. Since that time, I have felt so incredibly fortunate to have met Jackie Sizemore. Training with Jackie, with her expert knowledge of physiology and hands-on guidance, and experiencing the results of the comprehensive Youniquelyfit method, the T-Score for my spine went from -3.0 (osteoporosis) to 1.0 (normal bone density). I owe this dramatic improvement to my health to my bi-weekly training sessions with Jackie Sizemore in conjunction with my endocrinologist’s care. Working with Jackie is always challenging and never dreary; her positive, encouraging, and creative training sessions really make you feel good (with muscles tingling after intensive matt work!) Now, at age 58, and with thanks to Youniquelyfit, my flexibility, agility, and muscle tone has improved noticeably and my once constant back pain (attributed to spinal bone loss) has disappeared. I highly recommend Jackie Sizemore’s Youniquelyfit training sessions for anyone contemplating getting into the best physical condition of their lives.
John is doing a great job training my 12 year old son who competes in travel baseball. My son really enjoys his sessions and his fitness is improving everyday.
Kip is great! Great personality and perfectly responding on your needs. He can help on your diet - work schedule and on your goals. Nice, clean and easy location. I really liked and highly recommend him. 5⭐️
I first started my fitness journey after learning my body fat percentage had hit a personal high of 27%. It was then I decided to make health a priority in my life and start taking exercise and nutrition seriously. I signed up for Thumbtack and put out a request for a trainer near my home. John was one of the first to respond. We spoke on the phone about my goals and then scheduled a free consultation where we practiced a few basic movements and took my measurements. After our consultation, I committed to 20 personal training sessions. In each session, John tailors exercises with my goals in mind, and pushes me beyond what I think I'm capable of. He is always mixing up exercises to keep things interesting and my body guessing. John has me training with everything from kettle bells and cables, to rowing machines and TRX. In addition to the challenging workouts, John is consistent and reliable. He sends calendar invites for our scheduled training sessions and lets me know in advance if he needs to reschedule. It's now been nearly 18 months since we first started training. I've lost inches of body fat and gained confidence and energy. I look forward to our training sessions and even have my boyfriend hooked on couple workouts with John. :) I cannot recommend him enough for those ready to commit to a healthy lifestyle.
Andrew is very knowledgeable and know what he is teaching and training.
I have worked with many personal trainers over the years, but no one has delivered excellent results as consistently as Joe. I've lost weight, while actually enjoying the workouts! It is serious training that is 100% personalized to your body and goals. His private gym is a great environment to avoid the crowds and never feel intimidated. There's really no better investment you can make in yourself-- try a few sessions, and see for yourself! You won't regret it.
Santa Cruz Core Fitness + Rehab is the place to go! From the owner, Jaimi, to the receptionist, and trainers, they are all amazing and professional. They are very knowledgeable and make you feel really comfortable and positive. They are willing to work things out for you and your goals. I am just starting my fitness journey and I've never felt this great. And I've only been in for 2 training sessions. You guys need to check them out as they are expanding locations. They are now in Santa Cruz and Watsonville. You won't regret it! Also, the workouts are AMAZING!!!
I have been training with Felipe since 2010. Before I started training with him, my workouts only consisted of high-intensity cardio kickboxing. After training with Felipe, I realized that while I was fit, I was not strong. Now I get a great mix of cardio and strength training. One of my goals was to be able to do a pull-up on my own. Now I'm strong enough to do 5 in a row! I love the workouts that Felipe creates. Every day is different and he is constantly adding new things to keep it interesting. His workouts can consist of hitting a tire with a sledge hammer, pushing a car in a parking lot, lifting weights, or TRX exercises. And that's just a sampling of it. It changes all the time. He is also a big believer in having correct form. Doing the workout correctly is more important to him than how many reps you can do. If you're looking for a personal trainer who is different than most, Felipe is the trainer for you!
I had been toying with the idea of getting a trainer to help me get to the next level of my athletic ability. My wife set me up with Jay Queen of New Vision Fitness. My 1st, 2nd and current impression is that he is a true believer in the power of fitness and good diet to transform your ability to live life to the fullest. He is eager to help you get to that next level no matter your current fitness level. He can adapt quickly and effectively. Jay has been punctual and able to work around an adjustable schedule. His prices are quite fair and honest. (He gave me a refund when he felt that he did not need to monitor my diet! He had the money and just gave it back with no prompting. He is that honest. ) Jay is not doing this job for money. He is a trainer because he truly feels it is his mission to get people more active and healthy. If you are serious about getting more fit and active, look no further. You have found your trainer.
I have had personal trainers before but only at a gym. When i trained with Armando Ramirez it was in the comfort of his home. He trained me in his garage and it was for a month. I told him I wanted a work out plan that would target a total body work out crunched into an hour. He first weighed me and tuck measurements. So I can see my progress. That was very helpful and I like that I felt comfortable with him. I liked how it was one on one without the crowded gym environment. Armando showed me how to enjoy working out instead of counting down the minutes. I liked how it was quick and do able on a weekly basis. He always made sure my form was correct. In the past other trainers didn't give me as much attention due to other clients in the gym. Armando also pushed me when he seen I wanted to give up. But it was not aggressive it was very motivational. He showed me that I was capable of exceeding in my work outs. One thing, Armando did not have to many work out machines but his work out consisted more of stability and balance. I liked that better because I can do those work outs anywhere. No GYM needed. I really recommend training with Armando!!
I started training for powerlifting with Dima in March 2017. In my 10 week meet prep for my first powerlifting meet, Dima helped me bring my deadlift up from 265 Ib to 303 Ib. Now, in progress towards my second meet prep, he has been very patient in helping me address my weak muscle groups to bring up my total for my upcoming meet. I would recommend Dima if you are training for strength, fat loss, muscle gain, or injury rehabilitation. He will help you surpass your current goals and envision new ones.
James is a perfect mix of tough and encouraging, and can help anyone of all fitness levels. He can adjust to the kind of fitness or circuit training you want. He may push you hard at times but he’s fun, flexible and respectful. All he wants is for you to reach the fitness goal each client desires. James combines the best nutrition and circuit training that's best for you to achieve the best results. He is one of the greatest personal trainers I've ever encountered. He’s funny, warm, approachable, demanding, rigorous and really knows his stuff. You just cannot do any better. I highly recommend him as a personal trainer.
Mo is a fantastic trainer. He is very knowledgeable, a true expert in his field. He's a compassionate, attentive trainer. Be prepared to be pushed outside of your comfort zone during your training sessions. He makes training fun and you'll rarely do the same routine twice. The variety of exercises and support I feel keep me coming back for more...not to mention the results. You won't find a better trainer anywhere else.
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.
My wife & I hired Jon about a couple of months back for personal training with the primary goal of improving our strength and fitness. We are very happy with the work outs and routines and the results so far. Jon always arrives on time, has no problems spending extra time for advice or workouts. He is genuinely interested in improving our health. I highly recommend Jon & Hyper-Active Monkey Fitness to anyone looking to reach their fitness goals.
Chelsea instructed me for the last two years in personal, one-on-one training sessions. She helped me with several of my ailments- plantar fascitis and herniated disk with exercises, stretches and guidance for at-home exercises. She additionally taught a beach workout that I would regularly attend with men and women of all ages and it was always the highlight of my weekends. Her positive energy, education and fitness knowledge were catered to my individual needs and even when I would maybe ask too much of her, she always found time to meet me with my strange ever-changing work schedule and sometimes last minute needs.
Benjamin Lim is a treasure !! Very professional and knowledgeable about all aspects of fitness training. Super good bargain too. Ben's technique is based on science, not the usual mumbo jumbo. My fitness level is improving dramatically thanks in large part to Ben, though I do also have other personal trainers. If you can only get one trainer, get Ben. Don't waste your time investigating other trainers. You won't find someone better, especially at that price. In case you suspect this review is unreal or biased, it isn't. I never met Ben until he started training me a couple months ago in my home.
