Jonathan is highly professional and intelligent person. He is serious about his work, and it is clear that he loves what he is doing. The most important is that Janathan is a real leader -on one hand is he is tough and strict but on the other compassionate and supportive.

Being an athlete my entire life I have had many coaches, personal trainers, and workout experiences. The workouts OJ from One Body has designed to meet my workout goals have been extremely challenging and a perfect addition to my current workout regiment. I am impressed by his professionalism and consistent communication with me in order to assist me in reaching my goals.

Jake's great interpersonal skills makes training an enjoyable experience with total quality in every respect. I'd highly recommend him to anyone!
I had my doubts about getting marriage counseling, but when I started going to Michelle she proved to me how helpful it really is. So much that I think every young couple needs coaching in order to avoid serious relationship issues in the future. With her loving sidekick/spouse helping out, it provides a male and female aspect of each situation that comes up. Overall, Michelle is a great, caring person that will provide you with positive energy, motivation, and useful resources for life (not just marriage counseling). Coaching or no coaching, it's always nice to be blessed with the presence of such a person in your lifetime.
Jobi is an excellent personal trainer. He's nice, funny, and extremely knowledgeable. Arguably the most important aspect of him is that he will only push you as hard as you want to go. I never feel intimidated and I always get a good workout.
I've been working with Gabriel at DeVine Physiques for a little over 2 months now. Having been senior editor for a personal-training and group-fitness training magazine in years passed, I had some definite criteria in mind when looking for someone to help me overcome my difficulties with diet-plan adherence and learning quintessential moves that I was afraid to try due to injury potential if performed incorrectly. Upon meeting Gabriel for our free consultation, we reviewed my history with diet, exercise and past injuries, as well as my current goals vs. efforts I'd tried on my own to reach them. He asked the right questions, but more importantly he let me talk about these topics in-depth when needed and actively listened. He did not have a cookie-cutter approach in mind... he was looking for ways to optimize a plan to promote diet/exercise-program adherence and injury prevention relative to my goals with a conscious consideration as to my physical characteristics and limitations at that time (flexibility limits, minor chiropractic concerns, native structural particulars such as being bow-legged, flat-footed, etc.). The plan I brought to the table was "burn and build": start with a goal of losing 25 pounds (cutting), per the suggestion of my physician ... and then shift gears to building muscle on top of that new leaner frame (bulking) --- with cycles of both going forward from there. Gabriel worked with me to develop that idea into action. He advised me re: the importance of tracking calories and made suggestions as to apps that could be leveraged to aide in that often-tedious endeavor. He set me up with his customized trainer/client app and I connected MyFitnessPal to it to funnel data re: my daily nutritional and hydration tracking to him. We've started with two 50-minute workout sessions per week for now. Our goal has been to keep me below 2,000 calories per day... and his strong suggestion (not mandate, mind you... very important) to track everything has opened my eyes as to the caloric and nutritional content of everything I *was* eating (holy crap!) and have currently shifted to eating (oh thank God!). Coupled with drinking at least 96 oz. of water per day (also tracked) to help keep the body hydrated and aide with hunger as my body adjusted to the caloric reduction, my prior junk-food habit/addiction has gone away --- which, as I write this, had not fully hit me re: how big of a deal that really is. I haven't thought of a soda or French fries, etc., in quite some time... instead, I've been trying to figure out just how many ounces of chicken breast are on my plate at XYZ restaurant so I can get an accurate calorie figure for my tracking. ;-) The physical results have been *much* more than I initially expected. In roughly 2 months I've gone from 225 pounds at 5'11" to 204, and now we're looking at what to do once I hit my 200-pound goal. The current verdict is to go for another 10 pounds and see where I land and how I feel before shifting gears to more-intense focus on building/bulking. My cardio efficiency has increased greatly, as I no longer feel like I'm going to fall over going up and down flights of stairs. And whereas I was wearing XL shirts when I walked in the door, I recently shifted to L for the first time in a very long while. I've actually started to look forward to shopping for new clothes and don't dread going into fitting rooms and facing the mirror --- even the ones with horrible lighting. LOL For me, the key to success has been a combination of really wanting to do this coupled with Gabriel's friendly, positive reinforcement. He always points out when I've broken through barriers in my workouts with him, and has schooled me in very understandable terms re: basic anatomy, form, how things such as sitting and driving affect our flexibility and posture over time, etc. Gabriel's never mandated I do anything... instead, he's *encouraged* food tracking, hydration, caloric reduction, showing up for all our sessions, etc., couching those actions as being the bedrock for achieving the goals that *I* walked in the door with. The responsibility lies with *me* to do the work in the exercise programming he sets up for each session as well as the between-sessions work (which is actually *more* important in the long run). His welcoming, friendly, encouraging advisement regarding form and function as we work together in those sessions helps me keep moving forward progressively, efficiently and safely. We developed an easy rapport quite quickly, but Gabriel's very good about keeping us on task ... all while allowing me to catch my breath and regroup between sets or cardio sprints. There is no militaristic aggressive "go go go!!!" kind of atmosphere, but rather a "when you're ready... you've got this... you can and will because you are" approach to gently psyching me up when I might be feeling a bit of a dip in my gas tank. And when I'm actually lifting -- particularly if we're escalating weight to a new level -- he knows when to turn on a little-bit-more-"cheerleader" type of encouragement to help me push through... again, though, all centered on the idea that this is *me* working through *this moment* aiming for completion of *this movement* while being able to trust that he's there to help me make adjustments for optimal safe execution and spot me should I run into an exertion failure --- which is pretty rare, given his method of having rebuilt and reinforced the infrastructure of my core, lower back and legs with moves that I always wanted to try but was scared to do (deadlifts, in particular). He's walked me through those learning curves and longstanding hesitation to the other side where I'm much more confident and actually making marked progress in form + how much weight I can lift. I'm doing things at 43 years of age that I'd always been scared to do. If this has been my experience at the 2-month mark of working with Gabriel, I can't imagine where we'll be at the 4-month mark... or the 6-month mark! This has definitely been one of the most important and positive investments I've made in myself, and definitely the most physical-fitness progress I've made all around since having worked with a personal-trainer roommate who schooled me on basics in my mid-20s. The body usually changes quickly in your 20s, and I was afraid that I'd have a slow tedious climb in my 40s... but Gabriel's coaching (and my diligence; very important factor) have made that climb much faster and fulfilling than I thought would be possible. I look better. I feel better. I eat better. I move better. I *am* better. Other people have noticed ... and *I* have noticed -- not just on the surface, but inside as well -- and I want to keep moving forward to see what working with Gabriel holds in store around the bend.
Eric is a great coach. His training is one of the best and I have become a way much better athlete all around ever since I started with him.
Megan is not kidding! She has been great and world class trainer. I was really impressed by her optimized knowledge of fitness and professionalism and with her coaching skills and confidence building to customers so they can give more and more to achieve their maximum potential 👍
If you're like me, you're reading this wondering if you should take the plunge. While each situation is unique, I gotta say... DO IT! If you have the means and could use guidance in any aspect of your life, absolutely dive in. Fawn is incredible. I've been working with her for over a month now and I've seen so many significant changes in my life, changes that wouldn't have been possible without Fawn's support and knowledge. I contacted Fawn when I decided I needed a more hands on approach to improving my outlook and my habits. What I've achieved in my short time with her is far greater than I ever expected. I come away from our sessions more positive, more motivated, and refreshed. Her meticulous handling of each session, her ability to listen with an intent to understand, her check-ins, and her resource sharing is so intuitive. She knows because she's been there. Her scheduling system is wonderfully easy, which is especially helpful when dealing with different time zones. She utilizes Google Docs for session notes, which I love! I can carry my progress in my pocket. Fawn does an amazing job laying out a path at the beginning of coaching, but she also knows when to make adjustments. Much like life, you can only prepare so much before you have to simply run with what you've been given. I love that each conversation feels like catching up with a wise friend I've known for years, all while aspects of my goals are starting to fall into place. I'm incorporating her suggested action items in a way I've never been able to do before: effortlessly and optimistically. I'm gushing, but so what? One thing we touch on so often--and for good reason--is gratitude. I'm so grateful to have found Fawn and I can't wait to see where the remainder of our sessions lead.
Gilberto is extremely informative, inspiring, encouraging, motivating, results oriented, friendly and dependable personal trainer I have come across. I highly recommend you work with him, you will not be disappointed.
Both Judy and Frank are outstanding! They have pushed me to where I never though I could ever be within just 5 weeks. I have lost over 55 lbs in less than 6 months due to their expert personal training. Destination Workouts have changed my life for the better, and went well beyond my expectations. Judy truly cares and pushes my limits with her positive enthusiasm. 100% recommended, you will not regret it!
Chad's style of massage was perfect for what I needed. I have been having back and neck problems for a while now and he intuitively knew where he needed to focus on without me even telling him where it hurt the most. He covered all the major and minor muscle groups and did so at the perfect level of pressure for me. I need a 10 out of 10 pressure-wise and he fulfilled that and more. He's is the first masseur I have ever had who was able to do that, so I was pleasantly surprised. His space is clean and well put together. His music was nice and relaxing. The hot towels he had were amazing. I felt like I was at a high-end spa. I will definitely be back for more.
This is the very first time that I worked with a personal trainer who had extensive knowledge about injury prevention. His personal training approach that was informed by the physiology of exercise rather than from a results driven model really helped me through the process of meeting my particular health and wellness goals. He constantly walked me through each of the excercise routines, and checked in during and after to ascertain my comfort levels!
I have been working with Kalyn for a few weeks now and I’m very happy with everything. Training has really been tailored to me and my goals which is what personal training is all about.
Jeremy is extremely knowledgeable in the field of health and fitness, he has a degree & several certifications! He took the time to roll out my tight muscles so that I would be in alignment for my workout. Jeremy is fun & personable as well making the sessions extremely enjoyable! Also, I’m getting great results! I highly recommend Jeremy Zarghami with Lion Heart Athletics!!
Despite my lapse in communication, Frank was persistent and stuck with me during my health coach trial. During our meetings, he gave me time to talk out the things that I thought I needed to work on. And then provided valuable and helpful feedback in order to work on improvement. He is extremely kind and passionate about his work, which was key. Highly recommend him if you are looking for a health coach!
I received Pedro, my life coach as a gift from the universe. It could have been any coach when I purchased a package of life coaching sessions on ethical deal. But I found THE coach. A coach that throughout a one year process helped me heal the past and find the courage to live my dreams. I wouldn't be where I am today without Pedro coming into my life and am very grateful to Pedro for his guidance and the benefit he brings to peoples lives. If you are looking for positive change in your life I highly recommend Pedro.
Jackie has seriously been one of a kind! She is not just a personal trainer / a proffesional gym coach but also a mentor and A friend!!

I am the one on the right and I have lost 30 pounds in a matter of 2 months all because I have moral support from Jackie .... she just doesnt treat you like a client she really genuinely cares for your health being and goal strives !
I trained with her for one week. I had to go back to kuwait. She was wonderful i saw result withen five days Thank you coach.
I reached out to Coach D to progress my strength, as I was plateauing in the gym and had an inclination it might be my diet. He informed me it might be many things, not just diet, but was willing to help anyways. I'm the type of guy that likes getting to the point and having a gameplay laid out for me. D was able to work directly with that mindset and helped me understand what I would need to do. In the end I'm not entirely sure whether it was the coaching, diet, or motivation factor that broke me through the plateau. I do know that Coach D was able to work with me personally and helped share his personal eating habits, recipes, and advice. And for that I'm grateful and would recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone looking for a boost in their life!
Working with Jasmine has literally changed my life and the way I think. I've participated in her group coaching and also hired her to have private sessions. Jasmine has made a positive impact in my business, personal life and inner-self. She's inspiring, kind hearted and a beautiful soul. I can honestly say that Jasmine really knows how to work with ones self as an individual. I will definitely be recommending her to my family and friends.
