JJ and I have started an intense workout regimen that quite frankly is kicking my a@%... but is exactly what I need to get back into shape both in muscle tone and cardiovascular stamina. He is at once approachable and friendly, he doesn't shout but will hold you to pushing yourself as far as you can go, and then a little more. If you are committed to getting into shape, I HIGHLY recommend meeting up with JJ. He is also extremely knowledgeable regarding nutrition and will literally answer any nutrition questions I have as often as I have them throughout the day via text in a very quick manner. I also really love the variety of workouts he has led me through: weigh training, intense cardio, interval training, boxing/martial arts... I'm pretty convinced he can do anything. Three things you should know: 1. You will sweat... a lot! 2. You will be sore... really sore. 3. You will have a good time through it.
OJ is 1 of the best personal trainers I've ever come into contact with. For starters, your initial meeting is a workout created to personalize your strengths and weaknesses for future sessions. Afterwards, he speaks with you regarding your target goals, time frame, ideal weight etc. Meanwhile, he's compiling a special profile just for you in his computer. He sends weekly updates on your progress like: body fat percentage and weight loss/gain. In addition, he also sends motivational text messages during the week. He really is the most professional personal trainer I've ever encountered. I'm just 3 weeks into my training sessions and I'm already seeing results. Thanks OJ!
Paul is an extremely professional, friendly and helpful trainer! He is experienced and knows what he is doing. He gives out meal plans and excercises that is suitable for my level. I have been training with him for three months now, results are obvious and satisfying! I am really happy with Paul and would recommend him with no doubts!
One of the better decisions I have made for myself. All my long life I have loathed exercise but find myself coming back for more with Jobi's training. He is so knowledgeable about Fitness and health.
I trained with Manuk a couple times a week for the last three months and couldn't have had a better experience. I feel like my old self, I learned new ways to stay in shape, and had a personalized meal plan that was tailored at various points throughout my training. Manuk will kick your butt into shape and really cares about his work. He makes himself available outside of his sessions and is just a great guy. His prices are great compared to packages at larger gyms. Setting goals and having accountability is something that I need in order to make big changes. Manuk made it happen.
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.
Meghan Aro is an embodiment of beauty and physical strength. She always inspired me to go beyond my limits and with her guidance and training, I became not only physically but also mentally strong. I have lost 30 lbs, completed a 26.2mile marathon, and am currently training for a half Ironman. Meghan is an exceptional trainer who educates her clients about their bodies and provides not just exercise but also nutritional advice. She customizes and centers her workouts around the client. Every day is a new challenge. I strongly recommend Meghan to all my friends and loved ones.
Great location, flexible hours, and quality training. I highly recommend Fit Club Studios!
Gil is a wonderful trainer! He is the perfect balance between motivating and fun. Start training with him and I'm sure you won't regret it!
Gabby is very thorough and knows how to get the results you want. I am training with her to get in shape for my wedding and told her I did not want to get bulky- just toned. She created workouts that are high intensity interval that helped me get leaner/toned. I've seen results already and it's been only a month. I wouldn't be able to push myself to do these workouts on my own- so it's really helpful to have her to help me and make sure I push myself to keep going.
Derek was professional, he listened to my needs on what my goals were. He was always on time and had a set plan of action for every training session.
Judy, Is an amazing fitness training. Very amazing, and impressive with her workout programs that she comes up with. A simple, dumbbells, and jump rope can turn into an 8 week program by Judy's 25 plus years of experience. When I joined Judy's gym, I was bought into another levee of working out that I did not knew exist, that helped me out getting into the fire department. Judy does go above and beyond for her clients, every single one of them that trains in her gym. Like I said, her programs are just that amazing, that Jillian Michaels can learn from her. That is right you read that correctly, Jillian Michaels can learn from Judy, that is how amazing the quality of going to Judy's gym is, that it is just beyond amazing. I highly recommend that everyone that is reading this to join Judy's gym, even just for 3 months and you will see a very big difference with your body for the better part.
Great!! Mariano combines knowledge with heart to help you achieve your fitness goals. With him you will learn to adjust diet to your customized workout routine while gaining the encouragement to succeed. Within only a few weeks of training he's helped me realize great positive results, fast! I definitely recommend him.
I have been training with Mark for the last 2.5 years and I am in my late 50's. I have never felt and looked better. I have two jobs and a hectic schedule. Mark is highly skilled, professional and flexible with training time that fits my schedule. He is one of the best. I was really lucky to meet and and to work with him.
My husband and I both work out with Donna. What we love is how she customizes our workouts for our specific needs. No two training sessions are exactly alike, which make them fun and challenging. She comes up with inventive kick-ass routines to continuously keep us on out toes.
Hiking, running, strength training, and HIIT are just a few of the things she has trained me in. Very well rounded trainer, will easily adjust/ modify the regime to fit individuals with injuries or difficulties. Great with motivating you to increase your intensity.
during the first session we tested my strength and he really walked me through everything we were doing and why we were doing it. he listened to what i wanted to change and then showed me workouts that would achieve my goals. i cant wait to really start training with him
Are you looking for a personal trainer? One that cares for you and your health. One that has trained men and women for years with great care and knowledge. Tom Munizza is exactly who you need. I've been the recipient of his careful training for over 15 years. He has trained both my daughters as well. He's a gentleman and a caring soul. You can't find a better trainer! Sincerely, Lee Meriwether
Michael and I have a lot history of working out together. We began training in New York years ago, but stopped when I move out of state. Now that my business regularly takes me to the west coast, I'm able to sneak some sessions in with him and get a great workout during my travel days. He's incredibly knowledgeable and we work out really well together. Highly recommended for anyone, no matter your fitness level.
Glenn for the win! Glenn is a phenomenal personal trainer. My husband and I have thoroughly enjoyed training with Glenn and his staff. One thing we really like about Glenn is that he is able to accommodate and help with injuries/rehab and diet question/issues. You can't go wrong choosing Sweat Equity Fitness! Glenn and team are awesome!
I had never been able to keep a workout routine until Lindsey came into my life. Words truly cannot express how incredible she is not only at training you, but putting together a plan for you that works and is motivating. She truly is the best!!
