John is a great personal trainer in large part because he's an excellent teacher. His personal training sessions have taught me how to create a varied and effective workout. John consistently explains why we're doing what we're doing. He is very proactive too! He provides good information about healthy diets that is useful in everyday situations Very punctual and reliable, I've enjoyed every minute with him. After several sessions with him I have more energy and feel great! If you are based in San Diego, please contact him ... it could be your first step towards a better YOU.Mar 2, 2019VerifiedJohn Burson: Optimal Fitness and Nutrition's reply
Thank you very much, Cristian. You are an exceptional person. It was a pleasure working with you.
I’ve recently started training with John and I would recommend him to anyone! He is very professional, encouraging, and passionate about fitness. I used to hate the gym but now I’m eager to train every week. He is very patient and ensures you are properly conditioned prior to trying any strenuous activities. Working out has become my new therapy. I recommend John to any one seeking an encouraging and knowledgeable trainer!Mar 8, 2019Verified

I appreciate your appraisal. You're moving away soon. I'm going to miss you. However, I know you will keep on the path.
John is a very nice guy and I really enjoyed working out with him. He definitely knows what he's doing because he has been a trainer for a long time. He first evaluates your fitness level, then he gives you the best exercise for your body. I only knew John through this website and I would strongly recommend him.Dec 25, 2014VerifiedJohn Burson: Optimal Fitness and Nutrition's reply
Thank you very much, Mohammed. I hope my helps will continue to benefit you.
John has been great getting me up and going. I am use to doing a lot of longer swims, bikes, runs and wanted to trying changing my routine and work on some muscle building. He is helping to show me the differences in how one trains when the goal changes. He as also given me some good ideas on nutrition and what to each to meet this goal!!Mar 4, 2015VerifiedJohn Burson: Optimal Fitness and Nutrition's reply
