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 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!
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. :)
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!
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.
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.
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.
I'm still training with Maria 2 x a week and I find it unique and challenging. I have noticed significant improvement in many areas that were my achilles heal when it came to working out. I am also slowly but surely developing comfort on TRX which was one of my primary goals when I began with Maria. Outstanding experience.
I've received massages from probably a couple dozen people in my life. Xavier gave me the best massage + reallignment I've ever received. He is incredible. After one session with him, I signed up for weekly personal training sessions with Xavier. He is friendly, fun, and professional. Could not recommend any higher!
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.
Jennifer is a wonderful trainer. She's not at all intimidating but doesn't let you slack either. I have been working with her twice a week for nearly 6 months and I always look forward to our workouts. She incorporated TRX, HIIT, step, weights, body weight and pilates reformer into my training and I am loving the improvements in my strength and cardiovascular endurance. Our workouts have given me a positive attitude and keep me motivated to exercise outside of the studio as well.
Jay is simply amazing! He evaluates your fitness level, and then drafts an actionable plan to help you achieve your goals. Best part is, he's in tune with your abilities, and isn't afraid to shake up the plan to accommodate your capabilities! And it's not just about the sessions you pay for, the guy is invested in making you reach your goals and will check up on you regularly to make sure you're doing okay and on track. Upvote!
We hired Shawn to work with my elderly father to help him improve his endurance and recover from a knee injury. Despite his foibles, Shawn has been a great influence and we are already seeing an improvement. She is also incredibly responsive and creative in her training approach.
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 used Christina for weekly personal training for about a year. Christina was able to craft a unique training regimen for me based on my specific goals. I learned a lot of new techniques from her that I still am able to use on my own today. Christina's sessions were intense and definitely felt like I got stronger and more fit as a result of working with her. Christina also has a great engaging personality and that made our sessions enjoyable even with the intensity of the workout.
I have worked with a lot of trainers before and I wholeheartedly recommend working with Herman, who is hands down the best trainer I've worked with. He is relentlessly positive, always encouraging and helped me reach a lot of strength goals. I really appreciated that he was focused on form and alignment, not about the numbers. His approach helped me have an overall more positive view of my success and improvement. After working with him for six months, I was the strongest I've ever been. He's incredibly responsive in scheduling and was never annoyed when I had to reschedule due to my job that doesn't provide me with a lot of flexibility. Happy to answer any other questions you might have! Happy training!
Mel was a great trainer. We workout together to improve my core strength and flexibility over the course of a few months. Additionally, she is a very sweet and genuine person. Mel is a motivator and gets results. I’d highly recommend her.
I’ve been training with Ravi Machado now for about 1 year, and I look forward to our sessions every few weeks. My initial goals in wanting to hire Ravi as a trainer were to gain strength and improve posture. I already had a good foundation of how to lift weights but with some recent neck and lower back pain I wanted more guidance on lifting with correct technique as to not cause more pain. Ravi not only has been helpful in those regards, but has taught me a lot more. Sometimes we work out with body weight, or with a combo of weights, and kettlebells. And other times we’ll just focus on Pilates (as he’s a certified instructor), and some sessions we’ll do a combo approach of weights, HIIT training, and Pilates — which is nice and keeps me on my toes not knowing what I’ll expect. What I’ve learned in my time working with Ravi. I need to stretch more (I have tight hip flexors and hamstrings). The Pilates machines are perfect for doing just this, and even though I dread stretching at times, it’s so necessary to prevent further injuries. I sit and drive a lot for work, and though I’m an active person and fit, he helps me identify those trouble areas of my body that I need to prioritize with stretching (and strengthening) — and we all have them. And not to mention that Pilates is a killer workout! I’ve learned to focus on my back and strengthen my shoulder/back stabilizers to help combat neck pain which has definitely lessened as a result of working together. I also now know how to properly swing a kettlebell and give myself an awesome leg workout in a short period of time. If you’re looking to add variety to your workouts, get stronger, become more flexible, improve posture, and become more aware of how your body and muscles behave and hold onto tension, definitely work with Ravi! I promise you you won’t be bored and his down to earth personality and expert knowledge regarding personal training and Pilates will keep you coming back for more workouts. - Mike N, San Francisco - 5/31/18
Lacey is very knowledgeable about nutrition in addition to her strength and conditioning training programs. I had a baby less 12 weeks ago and she is helping me with a nutrition plan that takes into account my workout schedule and the fact that I am a nursing mom. The nutrition plan allows me to eat what I want, but focuses on when and how much to eat in order to maximize fat loss and increase my strength. I have noticed a huge increase in the energy I have during my training session since I have started my nutrition plan. In the first week on Lacey's nutrition plan, I lost 2 1/2 inches on my waist. Lacey is very accessible as well. She is extremely responsive and encouraging. She is just a phone call or text away when I need some advice or motivation. I highly recommend Lacey for your training and nutrition plan needs!
Ali is knowledgable and professional in her training. She helps you set realistic and attainable nutrition and fitness goals. Ali is supportive in person during a training session and also offers encouragement through social media as well. She is the best!
