I've met with a number of personal trainers, and it's exceedingly difficult to find someone that's friendly, knowledgeable, and organized. George is all of those things. I meet with him twice a week. He pushes me hard every single time. I highly recommend working with George.

OMG!!! I don't think I can work with any other personal trainer. Baron and Marcos set a really high bar. I'm new to "getting fit" so I know absolutely nothing at all. I went on a lengthy email exchange with Baron before I started, and Baron was prompt and thorough with his responses. Never did he get frustrated with all the stupid, inane questions I threw at him. Marcos is an awesome trainer. Always on time, totally flexible, and quick to think on his feet to adapt the routine to my unfit body. I've only been six? sessions in, and already I'm seeing results. For example, I went from not being able to plank at all (soooooo embarrassing) to being able to plank for over a minute. Baron and team is probably the best value of all the trainers in the Bay Area. Considering that your trainer **comes to you** and brings all the necessary equipment for the session, I don't think ANYONE can beat their price.

Baron is an exceptional personal trainer whose passion for health and fitness is inspiring. I've been training with him for the past 5 months and each session is so much more than just a killer workout. He challenges my mental limits by pushing me beyond the edge of my (perceived) physical limits. He thoughtfully fine tunes his extensive knowledge of fitness / body mechanics in order to meet specific individual needs. He is very patient with me - and if a new technique seems intimidating, he will take the time to explain and answer any of my questions. One of his many skills is knowing how to push without being "pushy" - to motivate without being demanding. And he always knows exactly what I need to hear to get me through the "I can't" moments. Baron is professional, engaging and genuinely cares about his clients' success. I highly recommend him.

Baron is an amazing personal trainer because he not only tailors workouts to a person's individual needs, but he makes sure that you're doing them properly. I've been working with him for the past 4 months and I've noticed such remarkable changes in my body's tone and core structure. I was a fish out of water at first, but with Baron's guidance I now feel stronger and more confident in the gym. He always pushes me to try my hardest, and keeps me motivated, which has meant a lot to me! Baron is knowledgeable, professional, and dedicated to helping people reach their goals.

After years and years of wanting to have a personal trainer, I always pushed it off. But something about turning 25 was a wake up call for me. So I made the plunge and did my research and looked into plenty of Personal Trainers but none of them really stood out. It wasn't until using this service and Anthony reaching out to me is a very fast manner that I took the opportunity to meet with him. Let's just say after a quick 15 min phone call and getting to know one another, I was hooked and ready to go. I started my training session on Monday and for someone who really hasn't stepped foot in a GYM or lifted weights, Anthony understands that and works to your level. During the 30 min workout (which felt longer at times haha) he was with me every step of the way, motivating and encouraging me to complete my sets. It has truly been the best investment I have ever made and look forward to accomplishing my goals. You won't go wrong with God's Gym & Anthony as your trainer. This guy knows his stuff!

Tahisha V.

I've worked out with trainers before, even one that I loved, and the experience with Anthony has still been on a different level entirely. For the last 5 weeks, I have had the pleasure of having Anthony as my trainer. I have found capacities in my body that I didn't know existed. Anthony is hardly summed up by a five star review. Anthony has one of the sunniest and positive personalities you'll never meet. The workouts are different every day and are fun and enjoyable and never boring. The gym environment is also great. From other trainers and other gym goers, everyone is kind, supportive, and encouraging. Expect to be greeted by everyone when you arrive. Since my first day, the atmosphere has been nothing but positive. I feel very welcomed and extremely comfortable. I've been very impressed with my experience thus far. I love the that God's cultivates a great mix of clientele. I see both men and women (regardless of age, level of fitness, or experience) working on their goals.

My review is specifically for Anthony, my personal trainer of four sessions. He is kind, funny, motivational, positive, enthusiastic, responsive, and was never intimidating nor condescending. He was patient with me when I had to reschedule sessions again and again because of my personal schedule, and always showed up to sessions with a smile, ready to fist bump you. As a complete beginner to using the gym equipment, he helped me feel at ease and competent. One thing to be aware of, though, is that you may share Anthony with a couple of other folks during your session (perhaps there are 1-on-1 options available), which works pretty well as we take turns using the machines. It just means that you may have to be more proactive in grabbing his attention to ask questions, if you do have any and which I know he'd be happy to answer. All in all, 5 stars for Anthony!

I've worked with a few personal trainers over the years and I have to say that hands down, Evan is the best trainer I have ever worked with. I started working out with Evan over a year ago. I have chronic low back pain, and had just had a procedure that was meant to reduce swelling and allow me to exercise more and strengthen my core. I had been doing physical therapy for awhile, but found that the workouts were too mellow, and I didn't really notice any improvement in my core strength. My wife had actually been working out with Evan for a few months and she recommended I try a few workouts with him. Evan has been amazing. The workouts are intense and challenging. He focuses on doing intervals of a quick series of strengthing exercises, with a burst of cardio in between sets that keeps your heart rate elevated for the entire workout. Given my back issues, he is very good about checking in to make sure he is not stressing or straining my lower back (or any other injury I might have picked up). I have noticed dramatic improvement in my core strength and overall fitness in my time with Evan. He also has been willing to email me personalized workouts I can do on my own for days when I'm not working out him. I agree with all the other posts here -- 5 stars. Evan is great.

I have never been one to enjoy working out or going to the gym, but Evan has changed all of that. He is a great motivator, and has helped me get into the best shape of my life. His nutritional advice and training have helped me lose weight and get stronger. I have a very complicated schedule and Evan has been very accommodating. He has even provided work outs for me to do when traveling. I highly recommend Evan, I am not sure what else one would want in a personal trainer.

I decided to seek a personal trainer to motivate, inspire and help me achieve my weight loss goals - what I got with Oga was so much more! His energy, enthusiasm and sense of humor makes you excited to train with him everyday! Oga has been so flexible with my crazy work schedule AND pushes me beyond what I thought I was capable of. I am already seeing amazing results and lost 3% body fat in just 3 weeks!!! I have never been a gym go-er, so I am so thankful that I've found a trainer who makes every workout new and exciting. I couldn't imagine training with anyone else! I never thought I'd love working out as much as I do, I owe it all to Oga!

Oga is a fantastic personal trainer!!! First time in my life I am not only being able to exercise regularly (always gave up on my own), I am also able to have a diet that keeps me feeling satisfied and healthy. Feeling super energized after each session. His positive energy and motivation help me to push myself harder and he changes up the workout every session to make it more fun and challenge the body. I strongly recommend Oga if you are looking for a personal trainer who can personalize your workout and give you the result you desire.

My husband has been doing Pilates sessions with YouniquelyFit’s Pilates trainer, Christina for a couple of months and has been able to alleviate his back pain by strengthening his core. Feeling like it was time I too began a program, I reached out to Jackie and she matched me up with Mallory, who focuses on different exercises because I have different goals and issues. She shows up at my house on time, is very motivating and knowledgeable. Mallory makes sure my knee injury isn’t stressed by the exercises, while still pushing me and ensuring a challenging workout. What a great trainer, and a great service! I highly recommend YouniquelyFit and especially Mallory for personal training.

I've worked with other personal trainers in the past. But my experience with John exceeded my expectations for several reasons. Upon meeting him I felt quickly at ease. He was able to quickly assess my physical ability and pushed me just enough past my comfort level. I had an amazing workout! He was very encouraging and positive towards me. It was very obvious he was extremely knowledgeable not only in training but he also came up with a detailed strategy to help me reach my fat loss goals especially with my nutrition. I feel very confidant in his ability to help me. I also know he will keep me free from injury. He exceeded my expectations. It was the best experience I've had with any personal trainer.

John is an amazing personal trainer, he is the type of trainer that makes you feel so good about what you're accomplishing, while at the same time pushing you to excel.

I would highly recommend training with him.

John got me to my goal. And he was REAL. Way honest. He was nice and knowledgeable but he didn't sugar coat what I really needed to do. I told him I wanted to do 5 pull ups (couldn't even do half of one to start). He laid out a plan, told me that with my lifestyle it would truly take at least 3 months. He changed up my diet (which I didn't always follow...) but he showed me I could eat what I want a couple times a week, creating balance with a focus on eating what would get me to my goal. I truly needed the nutritional help. John was extremely professional, kept his eye on my alignment, encouraged me when I did well, fired me up when I needed a push, and answered all of my random texts and calls. He would alter my written weekly workouts if I didn't feel I could do something on my own and then made sure to show me the way when we had another in person session. I could go on. But the best part is that I can now do 5 pull ups. I feel mighty at 5'1"!!! There is no magic to reaching a fitness goal...really any goal. You just have to work hard and that's what I learned from John. I had to want it bad enough. Honestly, paying someone was enough of an inspiration in some ways. I didn't want to waste my money by being lazy. I listened to the professional. John is the second personal trainer I have hired. I won't be looking for a third. I will be continuing with his monthly programming and jumping into some group sessions when I need that extra energy.

I have been working with John for the past 5 months and seen a great change in my figure. Before I started working out with John, I worked out in group class exercises And thought that I was in the best figure I could have achieved. John pushes you even harder to to be better in shape not just physically but nutritionally. He will coach you how exercise, food and sleep are very important to achieving your overall fitness goal. I have been more than satisfy with John as having him as my personal trainer. He pushes you hard, but it is well worth it! If anyone is finding a friendly, yet professional personal trainer who will help you achieve your fitness goal, John is the guy that you need to go to.

I have worked with John for almost a year now. Over the course of the year I’ve been more than pleased with the service, not only was the system very structured punctual and professional, but I’ve had more results than ever before. John/fast pace PT is the third personal training service I have used, after having two other personal trainers. Structured system compared to traditional personal training is much more effective and I have appreciated all of John’s, and his team is hard work . I look forward to more training and even more results to come. Eli

I love working with Kendall! -She's passionate about fitness, nutrition, and an overall healthy lifestyle. If you have food items that you feel you can't live without, she'll help you work them into your diet in the best way possible. -Kendall is always on time! Even on the days I happen to arrive early, she's there waiting for me. -She's great about scheduling our time together and does a check-in with her clients every Sunday to reconfirm the schedule for the week. -Safety is her #1 priority in teach her clients how to lift weights and get into shape. She's always asking for feedback about feel, comfort, pain levels, etc. Only once I had to tell her about pain I was experiencing in my knee, and she immediately modified my motion to alleviate the pain. -Kendall is an excellent motivator and really helps you get past your own mental blocks about your body and losing weight. -She's honest about necessary commitment vs. personal goals and explains her rates/pricing really well. -The gym where she hosts clients is really the most intimidating part of the experience. On any given day you'll see people training and practicing for body building competitions. If you don't mind learning alongside the pros, you'll be fine. -Everyone at that gym also works out with a personal trainer, so it's a very comfortable experience being around people working on the same goals that you have -I am still in my first month training with Kendall but am already seeing results in how my clothes are fitting me. I'm really excited to continue seeing changes over the next few months! I train 4x per week with Kendall and believe it's worth every penny.

I have had the pleasure of being trained by Kendall for the past seven months. When I was searching for a trainer, I wanted to work with someone who was well-rounded to help get me get to a healthy lifestyle. I have been very impressed with Kendall and happily recommend her as a personal trainer. Kendall started by customizing my training based on my physical objectives and body type. She offers me guidance with my diet, to make sure I maximize my efforts. Kendall also takes my busy travel schedule into account. She has taught me good form, so that I can work-out on my own, during my business trips. Moreover, she also takes my physical injuries into account, making sure I get a complete workout without compromising my health. I give Kendall five-stars and highly recommend her as a personal trainer.

All are outstanding and I would recommend her highly.

Felipe is my first personal trainer ever, and it's been an amazing experience for me so far. I've never been a workout person at all before, so I was a bit concerned about my ability to stay focused and motivated. But Felipe's approach works great for keeping me motivated. For one thing, he's about more than just counting reps. He always makes sure to explain why he's added a particular exercise to my routine and what I can expect to get out of it. Which is good, because when your biceps are burning and your knees are crying out in agony - and that is going to happen, it's just part of the whole personal trainer experience - it's a lot easier to keep going when you understand why you're doing it in the first place. More than that, I've seen definite improvements in both how I look and how I feel since I've been going to Felipe, and it's only been a few months. He's also a great guy who defies the stereotype of personal trainers who motivate their clients by making them feel bad about themselves. Felipe doesn't work like that at all, and if you're looking for a personal trainer on the Peninsula (San Mateo), I'm telling you, he's your guy.

Dima is the best personal trainer I've ever had! He created a personalized fitness plan specific to my goals and my schedule. My focus was around strength training. The best part was that he also taught me basic information that I needed to know in order to modify my fitness plan over time in order to make it more challenging or in order to fit my changing daily/weekly schedule. Not all trainers are willing to share their secrets, but I definitely felt like Dima really cared that I reached my goals and that he was willing to share whatever knowledge necessary in order for me to do so! He was always approachable, understanding, patient, and easy to work with, but was also tough, constantly pushing me to exceed my own expectations. I'm one of those people who can get pretty lazy, but Dima was always encouraging and kept a positive attitude! Positivity is key! He knows what he is doing. He has knowledge from formal training/education, but more importantly, he has personal experience as a health and fitness fanatic who is constantly striving to improve himself. He's one of my fitness role models, and I am constantly thankful for everything he has taught me!

Dima is very knowledgeable and professional. He is always positive and very attentive during the workout to help me use the correct form to make each exercise effective and to prevent injuries. He doesn’t give me more than I can handle but he also knows how to challenge me to go to the next level. In the past I have worked out in all different ways, from exercise videos on my own to fitness classes and gym memberships. This is the first time I have had my own personal trainer and I have to say that it’s the most effective workout method of all! I have only been training with Dima for two months and I’ve learned so much and can already notice a huge improvement in my strength, endurance, and energy level. I highly recommend Dima!

I've been going through cycles of setting up a gym schedule for myself and then failing to follow it. I've run through a few personal trainers in the past year or so, and can honestly say Dima changed the way I look at fitness. It was hard to motivate myself before, and I wasn't seeing improvement. Dima taught me about the whole fitness lifestyle, from plannjng my diet to getting the perfect form in a deadlift. I've seen more results in my 12 weeks with Dima than I did in a year at my old gym. And, going to the gym is fun for me now because of Dima's relentlessly positive, goal-oriented training style. Thank you, Dima, for giving me the personal training experience I always wanted.

My personal training sessions with Nadia left me feeling exhausted and weak but like there was hope. Nadia, a fitness enthusiast, was the perfect mix of intimidating and inspirational. She listened to my goals and helped me outline a way to achieve them. Most importantly, she already felt like someone I could see myself looking forward to seeing each week. Nadia truly cares about getting you healthy and has a deep knowledge about diet and overall health that is a valuable pairing with the physical workouts she provides. A while back I was lacking motivation to exercise and decided to work with a personal trainer for a few weeks. I found Nadia on the web and I feel like I hit the jackpot. She is such a motivation and so positive. I look forward to every appointment. She is a master at her trade and truly cares about each client. She offers on-line nutrition and fitness challenges each month, as well as recipes, and ideas about how to organize your life for success. Nadia is committed to making the world a healthier place one person at a time.

Mohamed is the best trainer I have ever trained with. I have trained with a number of other trainers before but no one as good as Mohamed. He genuinely cares about his clients and wants us to see results which is why he checks in daily to see how I am feeling.

2 years after my c-section, I continued to have pain in my lower back. Even though physical therapy helped, the pain lingered on. I was unable to do any exercises beyond the ones recommended during the physical therapy. That's when Radha came to the rescue. She listened very patiently to my problem and customized exercises that suited my comfort level and yet pushed me to getting stronger. All our training sessions started with assessing my pain level and exercising accordingly. Her training routine has definitely served as a springboard for high intensity exercises. I would highly recommend her to anyone who requires personal training.

Radha is great to work with. She really takes time to customize each of her clients, with me I have a bad knee and shoulder and we have been rehabilitating yet still working the muscles and fine tuning technique. I have never worked with another trainer that puts in as much effort to create a workout plan. The days I see Radha (2x a week) are my "happy days" because I always feel I challenged myself and she definitely inspires me and never leads me to regression like my other trainers in the past.

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.

I really enjoy working with Herman. He is very engaging during the training. Herman will motivate and push you beyond your limit that you didn't even know you are capable of. He focuses on what your goals and your needs are and adjust the workout or meal prep to help achieve it. He is also very responsive and flexible with my capabilities. He will adjust the workout to my needs, my range of motions, and my injuries. When my wrists are acting up, he will alter the exercise and accommodate to my limitations. Not only is he a personal trainer, he is also a friend who cares about how I'm doing in life. He would check up on me on how my injuries are doing or if I'm sore from the workouts. He'll also give me suggestions on how to alleviate the pain or tells me how to stretch to help my soreness. Overall, I am really satisfied with Herman and I am really seeing results!!

I've been working with Herman for two years. He's been an excellent trainer. Professional and responsive to my needs as they change. I have seen solid results. I recommend him highly.

Kathy makes working out a fun experience and caters the excercise program to your needs. She pays attention to your goals and any limitations you may have. She is one of those trainers that geniunely cares about making you a better version of yourself. I love that she takes the work outs anywhere...her studio, the outdoors, any place can become an excercise forum. I highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for a different approach to health and fitness.

Kathy was very professional, she explained every exercise, made sure that my former was correct and just made the entire time very enjoyable. The 50 minutes went by really quickly, that's how much fun it was. Believe it, you can exercise and get a great workout in while having fun.

Kathy is the first person to make working out fun for me! She's energetic, outgoing, and motivates you in a non judgmental environment through classes and private sessions. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for real results in a fun environment!

Matt is working with me twice a week on strength training especially for my core. He is very knowledgeable, professional, and very pleasant to work with. He is patient yet on each machine or exercise he frequently asks me if I can go up on weight, stretch further, etc. He creates a varied routine for me & I enjoy the sessions. Matt is always looking out for my safety & guides me as to proper form. He always takes into account my specific weak areas. He is flexible w scheduling. I've worked with three very good trainers however, I feel I've made the most progress toward my goals with Matt. I look forward to my sessions with Matt & my mind/body feel good when I go home. I know I'm in good, professional, experienced hands.

I had Sanchez as a trainer for about two years before I moved out of town. I still make sure to see him when I travel back to town. Dude knows his stuff, is light-hearted but unrelenting, and actually gets results. Recommended for those focusing on strength training, though he might Zumba like a motherfucker; I don't know.

Matt is super knowledgable, goal oriented, and knows how to get results for his clients. If you are looking for a "just go through the motions" type of trainer, Matt is definitely NOT your guy. He knows how and how far to push you. I highly recommend him.

My previous trainer was quitting a large gym and asked if I would like a recommendation of an excellent trainer. At first I was going to look for one myself, but knowing my previous trainer, also excellent, I said "ok". Well I have been with Chris going on 4 years now. He listened to my primary goal, which was to lose weight and have more energy. I was approaching 64. I told him trainers say "put on the muscle and lose the weight". Well I bulked up, which I did not want and added more weight due to the muscle. I weighed in at 210 for a 5'7". Chris set up a program mixed with cardio, resistance training and some weights. He also threw in core strengthening to achieve better balance and prevent falls due to my increase age. Chris also talked to me about food and nutrition, which goes hand in hand with exercise. One thing that I find extraordinary about Chris is that he is also a therapist. He checks in on my mental health and listens to my personal challenges with family, business and politics without being judgemental. Chris understands that those challenges if not vented or voiced affects our subconscious and our attitude toward training and exercise. He has gotten me off of Costco hotdogs and pizza. I walk everyday without any rest stops on a hilly street in my neighborhood. I now weigh 179. My goal is 170 and it is within sight. I could not have done this without Chris.....MrFitWell.

Mr. Fit Wells has been huge for keeping me accountable towards my goals. Mr. Fit Wells reminds me of my personal promise to myself and provides me with the tactics I need to complete each and every day, week and month to ensure I am in line towards completion of my goals. He also does this in such a way that I don't feel pressured or sold—I feel empowered, feel like I am responsible. I couldn't thank this company enough for all the knowledge and support provided.

Always responsive and available. Honest and open- will not try to answer a question unless he knows the answer and will find the answer if he doesn't know at the moment. So professional and encourages me to apply lessons learned in gym to life as a whole.

I am a diabetic (insulin) and have high blood pressure. I'm overweight and pretty much really out of shape. I need someone to work with me and push me to meet my goals. I am very good with my diet. I follow a strict diet to ensure I eat a low-fat and low-carb. I stay away from almost all processed foods. I've got that down. I just need help with exercise.

Training will be primarily with body weight exercises, kettle bells, weight vest and environmental challenges / exercise (e.g. trail run with weight, etc). I am focused on a 4 to 6 month plan to body recomposition and functional fitness. I will be doing a work schedule of approximately 2 weeks in San Carlos, alternating with 2 weeks travelling for work. I will need both sessions to do while I'm at home, and also specific workout / nutrition plan for when I'm away.

Ideally, I would like to train twice a week, but that would depend upon the cost. I want to develop a weekly fitness plan, and it would be great if the personal trainer also had a nutrition background or could help me develop a meal/diet plan to complement the workout plan.
