Why I love Shape Up Studio...There are several reasons. First of all, there is something about that gym that feels different. There's really good energy and the atmosphere feels relaxed and fun at the same time. All the trainers are so kind, approachable and very knowledgeable. I've been going there for a few months now and have gotten to meet Markshane. He's very dedicated, professional, and filled with energy. He takes the time to really listened and help you reach your goals, whether it's loosing weight, training for an event, or simply keeping an active lifestyle. I also love my 30 minute circuit class on Tues & Thursdays with Vinny. That class is super fun and you go at your own pace. Getting massages with Christine, the massage therapist, is also a treat-Especially, when it's in the same building. They have a nutritionist there as well that can guide you and keep you on track. A lot of the comments below definitely resonated and seems that there is a commonality: and that is a great place to train with the support you need. That is why I love Shape Up Studio! P.s. Oh and did I mention it's always clean?!?!!!!! There's a container of Clorox Wipes in each machine!!! Come check it out! There's a complimentary trial day to see if it's a great fit for you!

My experience with Anne Masri was outstanding! She is absolutely an expert nutritionist, specialty chef, and very professional in her work. Plus Anne is a very pleasant and caring person. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Anne and the private, personalized nutritional cooking lesson that she gave me in my own kitchen. I could not have asked for better. Anne exceeded my expectations! I highly recommend Anne to everyone who wants the services she provides. Thank you, Anne!

In March 2017, I was stuck in my weight loss efforts despite limiting my calories and exercise efforts. Shedding 30+ pounds had been a struggle for years – my weight would yo-yo; sometimes being able to lose a few pounds with deprivation, but the pounds always returned once I started eating again. I was also experiencing fairly severe health annoyances like constant watery eyes and significant swelling in my knees – but my focus was really not on those things; it was on wanting to lose weight. Convinced that my metabolism was permanently stifled due to my age and years of yo-yo dieting (I am 55 years old), I was ready to give up and accept the way I looked and felt as my unfortunate reality. My husband thankfully encouraged me to see a Dietician/Nutritionist, and I found Donna online. My first appointment with Donna was in late March. We decided that I would do a 2 week cleanse (Detox) to rid my body of toxins – it was excruciating (but worth it!), proof that my body was full of bad things. I then went through testing for the LEAP program. The results were very interesting – things I had been eating for years in my efforts to lose weight – like certain fruits, garbanzo beans, cabbage, corn, chicken, and beef – and things like basil, garlic, and peanuts – were identified as intolerances for me. Donna explained that these foods led to inflammation and worked against my weight loss efforts. As well, consumption of these foods was causing/aggravating the other health symptoms I was experiencing. Fast forward to six months later, and while I have not been perfect, I am over halfway to my weight loss goal! Thanks to Donna and the LEAP protocol, I have lost about 20 pounds, the swelling in my knees is noticeably reduced, and my eyes are only occasionally mildly watery. My physical and mental health has improved, and I am aware of how I feel when eating certain foods to the point that I embarked on a 10-week program to give up sugar on August 1st. One of the best things about the LEAP program is that it is not a Diet – this is a Lifestyle Change which I will be able to maintain. I highly recommend Donna and the programs she uses to others struggling with health issues, including the inability to lose weight. It is amazing how much what we ingest affects our health, and it’s not just avoiding those foods we know we shouldn’t eat! I was eating hummus and grapefruit regularly in my prior weight loss efforts, and it turns out those so-called health foods were working against me. This program has been life changing for me, and I am so appreciative for Donna and her true concern about my health.

Before I worked with Andrea, I had personal health issues, uneven strength on my body due to knee surgery that was 10 years ago, and not much experience with weight training. All I did was cardio and I noticed that wasn't helping me lose any body fat for the long run. I was also too shy to work in the weight rooms at public gyms, so I looked up a personal trainer. As a nutrition coach, she really makes you look at eating clean not as a "diet" but as a "change in health". I no longer looked to foods for comfort, but enjoyed having a more nutritious diet. My cravings for sweets stopped and my moods definitely boosted, which I think are the most important things in order to lose fat. Andrea really designs workouts specified for your goals and your body. She knows what she's doing and she has the professionalism that helps you through the workouts mentally. In the 7 months I've trained with her, it definitely was not an easy task. Focusing on my health, staying disciplined in my training, and fighting through plateaus - but without her I could not have done it myself. I am now noticeably leaner and stronger and have evenly strengthened my body. Most importantly, I feel better about myself and want to continue on this positive cycle throughout my life. She definitely beats any nutritional book or workout video you'll ever encounter, and I would highly recommend her to anyone!!! Thank you Andrea!

Will is hands down the BEST personal trainer I have ever had! He is incredibly knowledgeable with kinesiology and body mechanics. He takes a sincere interest in injury prevention by educating and correcting improper form, as well as remains PRESENT the entire session to ensure you are focused and to help you surpass your own personal goals... he is never on his phone or looking away. Always communicates thoroughly, checks in with me between sessions, motivates my growth, and takes the time to understand my personal needs. I have never been more satisfied with the quality and care given to me by any other sports professional. Highly recommend a thousand times over. Thank you so much Will!!!!

    Started out going to John due to several serious ankle injuries. After a very detailed re-hab program, (in office) and at home exercises my ankle felt great. I have not had a problem since. Johns approach to injury is very comprehensive and I have and continue to recommend his services and knowledge. I still see John mainly as an extremely knowledgeable exercise trainer/consultant, and for his knowledge in nutrition and wellness. His positive feedback with the right amount of push to better you overall wellbeing is an approach you will not get anywhere else.

      Christa, and her services, are all you need for holistic wellness. As a massage therapist she integrates her extensive knowledge of anatomy with intuition, to create the massage you need for healing, relaxation, or rehab. As a nutritionist, she gives clear advice based on her years of research and strong listening to your goals and or symptoms. She also connects with the emotions that are commonly tied to symptoms like chronic pain, chronic fatigue, injury, illness, and poor health. Christa tells you what you need to hear, without judgement, and with compassion and authenticity. She has been a life changer for me, first supporting me in cutting gluten out of my diet, and then cutting out sugar. Without her, I wouldn't have known why I should, beloved I could, or known how to- step by step. I can't say enough about her talent, commitment, and passion for helping people to live their healthiest life possible.

      I've struggled with my weight most of my life. I've yoyo'd between obese and athletic. It wasn't until I worked out with Thomas that I was able to develop strategies to stop the yoyoing and stay in shape. Thomas isn't just a personal trainer. He's also a motivator and a life coach. He teaches you strategies to get your workouts and diet under control, but when you fall off the wagon he encourages you to get back on and brings you up rather than scolding you. I've worked out with several different personal trainers of the years, but Thomas is by far the best. If you are looking to lose weight, train for a sport or get in shape to run a marathon, give Thomas a call. He will get build you a strategy to not just achieve your goal, but thrive.

      This is my first time using a trainer. I have always been active with sports/ fitness classes / and running, so I wasn't sure how I would benefit from the one on one training. Antonia has done a great job of assessing my strengths and weaknesses, and really focuses on my weaknesses and areas for improvement. I am an avid runner( half marathons/ marathons/ trail), and she focuses on core strength, stretching and balance. Within a very short period of time (< 2 months) I accomplished significant improvement in my strength, abilities and fitness level (standard pushups, flexibility, loss of inches/ fat). She varies the workouts so it never gets boring. She has a lot of ideas on fun ways to workout. Extremely professional approach to working out. She is easy to get in contact with and is always responsive. She is very punctual, and is flexible to work around my schedule.

I've lost over 50 pounds and am fully living my life's purpose due to Jenay's compassionate, helpful, and solution-oriented approach to the multi-faceted problem of dieting. She has helped me to really notice not only of the unhealthy food choices I was making but WHY I made them. A++++

          Best nutritionist in San Diego for natural and healthy foods, especially if you are thinking of becoming a vegan or vegetarian! Basically, I was a bachelor and I needed guidance for grocery shopping, meal prep and did one of her cooking classes focused on smoothies and juicing - was geared to yogis/athletes (pre and post workouts). I was taken to People's in Ocean Beach for a one hour tour (place is all vegetarian), and I learned the best things to pick out from each isle. She also treated me to a salad in their cafe, and told me what salad bar items pack the best nutrition (I was focusing on slowly eating less meat and just making sure I was getting good protein). My work is hiring her for our corporate wellness program based on her dietician background and nutritionist certification...sweet! She has awesome teas too, they cleanse you out ;)

My mission is to support women to take control of their health, so that they can improve their energy levels, decrease digestive issues and maintain a healthy weight.

          I do sports nutrition, fitness training, pet sitting and nannying. I have had experience in just about everything, I have certifications for fitness and nutrition and a bachelor's degree in science-animal science. Just ask, and I will be happy to explain!

          About

          I have a general practice in traditional naturopathy and clinical nutrition. I work with all conditions, but always from the point of view that if we do not address and reduce or eliminate the causes, then we can never get the maximum desirable improvements. Suppressing symptoms is not what I do. If you are looking for a drug, herb, nutrient or diet that will give a “quick fix”, please do not contact me. Reversing major health and medical issues takes time and effort, but the results are generally exceptionally rewarding and sometimes even miraculous. I utilize diet, vitamins, minerals, homeopathic remedies, Enderlein remedies, gemmotherapies, herbs, energy medicine and other modalities in which I have been trained. Please visit my web page for additional information, and be forewarned that I am generally booked up between 1 and 3 months ahead for taking new patients. I have been a sole practitioner for almost two decades and I do not have front office staff, so please do not drop by without a scheduled appointment. Thank you for your interest in improving your health or the health of a loved one.

          Q & A

          Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

          How much does a nutritionist cost?

          A nutritionist provides expertise and guidance to help clients with all diet-related health matters, including losing weight, gaining muscle, improving their sports performance, and managing diabetes or high cholesterol. Nutritionists can help people learn to follow special diets in a healthy way, such as becoming vegetarian or vegan or developing a low-sodium or gluten-free eating plan. The average national cost of a nutritionist is $60 to $100. Nutritionists often require an initial consultation with a new client, during which they’ll take a medical history, assess the client’s nutritional needs, and determine the best course of action; this first meeting usually averages $100-$120 for a 45-minute to 90-minute consultation. Subsequent nutritional counseling sessions generally cost less, ranging from an average of $45 for a half-hour session to $60-$90 for a one-hour session. Like many professional service providers, nutritionists may offer discounts through package pricing. For instance, a one-month package with two sessions and email support costs an average of $190; a three-month package with three sessions and email support costs an average of $360; and a six-month package with six sessions and email support costs an average of $540.  

          Are nutritionists covered by health insurance?

          Nutrition counseling can be a critical component of good health care, especially for people recently diagnosed with diabetes or high cholesterol who need to adhere to a specific diet. People also meet with nutritionists for help developing a healthy vegetarian or vegan diet, developing an eating plan to lose weight or gain muscle, or improving their sports performance by changing their diet. Nutritionists may be covered by health insurance depending on your reason for meeting with them. Nutrition counseling is more likely to be covered if it is part of a doctor-prescribed treatment for a particular medical condition, such as diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure or coronary heart disease. For example, Medicare covers medical nutrition therapy services only for people diagnosed with diabetes or kidney disease, as long as they get a referral from their doctor. Also, insurance providers more often cover nutrition visits if the patient has been referred to a registered dietitian within the carrier’s network of providers. Insurance plans vary greatly, so research your benefits before visiting a nutritionist.
