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 :)
Aleksander is a great, motivating training! On-time and always engaged.
I've never seen a studio or gym this nice and well kept. It has top notch amenities(shower, towels, air conditioning in SF!) and staff. I've been training here for some time (3 months) and have seen great results, especially my balance.. Evan works with a great staff and Scott (my trainer) has designed a very effective workout program to address my right side\leg which is weaker than the left from breaking my femur. Great experience, would definitely reccomend for personal training!!!
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. :)
John is an amazing trainer. He is professional, always on time, and perpetually energetic. Even on days where I felt worn down, he managed to get me energized. He also understood what I wanted to achieve and was very focused on my goals. By far the best trainer that I have had the opportunity to train with! I had to take a break from training due to some life events, but I will definitely train with him again as soon as I can!
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.
I recently moved to San Mateo. I was looking for an experienced personal trainer with a private gym and Kip was the guy. After I posted the search on Thumbtack, Kip quickly responded back with an offer and set up an trial training session with me. The trial went great, he pushed hard but was checking up on me from time to time to see if I needed a break or drink of water. I recommend anyone to sign up with him and try it out for themselves. Another thing I like about Kip is that he checks-up with you after the training to see how you feel and adjust the next session based on your response.
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.
Xavier is one of the most hardworking and dedicated trainers I know. I needed help with my Army Physical Fitness Test training, particularly with my two-mile because I had a huge mental block and never broke that barrier or dropped my time no matter what I did. I found out that Xavier had done extensive research prior, and there were many days we went over one hour but he did not charge extra. He is someone I would describe as not after your money but truly cares about helping you reach your goals, no matter the cost and extra burden on him. The special thing about Xavier is really what you are getting in his packages-- it's not just physical training, but a package that addresses all three things: physical, emotional, and mental. With my mental block, he took me to speak to his wife, who was professionally certified. All at no extra cost to me-- it was all on his dime. Why? Because like I said, he cares about the person and his/her goal rather than just making money. When I was injured or on the brink of getting injured, he was able to help me with physical therapy as well (he's a massage therapist) so I didn't even have to go to a doctor for that. (He really knows what he's doing with physical therapy and massage; I actually feel that it's his specialty). It obviously worked because I was somehow able to avoid all those close calls, recover from a strained shoulder and strained hip, and prevent further injury ALL while intensely training at the same time nonstop for the twenty days I had left. We definitely went over just one hour everyday but Xavier never said anything. I know what I was able to achieve earlier, and I had reached my wits' end with making any improvement. Today, saying I reached my goal is an understatement. I completely smashed my goal and broke a mental and physical barrier forever along the way-- by almost 2 minutes. Something I couldn't break by even a minute for NINETEEN years by myself. But only twenty days with Xavier and suddenly I broke it by not just one but TWO minutes in an already short two-mile run? AND somehow got over my greatest fear at the same time? That's what I call a miracle. Got above and beyond for everything else. At times I know I gave Xavier a hard time because sometimes I wouldn't listen to him or argued with him about what was right. But it doesn't matter who was right or wrong at that time because all that matters to me is the end result-- and I succeeded. Thank you Xavier!
I haven't been swimming in years but have just started training for a triathlon. Veronique's clear instruction, tailored to my needs, helped me enormously with the fundamentals of swimming - important concepts I was never taught as a child on swim team! Her expertise will be invaluable as I learn to navigate the water with strength and efficiency.
I would hands down recommend Dima Rumanov to anyone who is looking for the ultimate body and mind transformation. He is patient, dedicated, hardworking, always so positive and understands that the struggle is real. I first went to Dima to get a "lean toned body." He helped me set up a fitness schedule, homework, and a meal plan to help me reach my desired goal. Over the course of a year, training with Dima 2x a week, my goals changed and Dima was always accommodating and altered my program based on my goals I was trying to achieve. I lost a total of 15lbs and then decided I wanted to get stronger and he changed my program changed again to include more weights. Initially I was hesitant to start heavy weights in fear of getting "bulky" or "beefy." Dima is an expert trainer and now I am stronger and leaner than I have ever been and you can see the results of my transformation in the image below. I am thrilled with both my physical and mental transformation and if you follow Dima's program (which includes a mostly health diet with cheat days) you will get the results you desire. He is A+!
Andrew is very knowledgeable and know what he is teaching and training.
Scott has been training me at the YMCA for my first triathlon. Since it is my first one and I don't know anything, he has been super helpful. He is very knowledgable about body mechanics and form on the bike, running, swimming and strength training, which is helpful in improving your performance and in preventing injuries. Scott is also has a deep understanding of nutrition and how that helps your training. He is also very friendly and helpful with any questions.
I had been toying with the idea of getting a trainer to help me get to the next level of my athletic ability. My wife set me up with Jay Queen of New Vision Fitness. My 1st, 2nd and current impression is that he is a true believer in the power of fitness and good diet to transform your ability to live life to the fullest. He is eager to help you get to that next level no matter your current fitness level. He can adapt quickly and effectively. Jay has been punctual and able to work around an adjustable schedule. His prices are quite fair and honest. (He gave me a refund when he felt that he did not need to monitor my diet! He had the money and just gave it back with no prompting. He is that honest. ) Jay is not doing this job for money. He is a trainer because he truly feels it is his mission to get people more active and healthy. If you are serious about getting more fit and active, look no further. You have found your trainer.
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.
What can I say about Herman besides that he's awesome. I started training with him after a knee injury playing soccer. He's helped me rebalance, strengthen and add explosiveness back to my knee to the point where I feel way stronger than before the injury! He keeps the sessions fun, challenging, and has great knowledge. It's been a year now and I always look forward to what new challenges he has set up for me.
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.
Holly is one-on-one training with my 87-year old mother to help tone and strengthen muscles, develop balance, and increase mobility. She is sweet and kind and my mother adores her. Holly kindly provided me with her assessment of my mother's strengths and weaknesses after their first meeting and shared her goals for future sessions. I am delighted to have discovered her.
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.
I’ve been training with Anuathlete for 6 months now and let me tell you, it’s been a great experience. Bobby is very knowledgable and an excellent trainer. He truly cares about his clients and is committed to helping you reach your goals. He will ensure you get the right workout plan for you to fit your desired results. He’s always encouraging and pushes me to give it my best. His workout programs are challenging but rewarding. I’ve made a lot progress in those six months and I’m extremely satisfied with the results I’m seeing. I definitely feel more confident than ever before. If you’re ready to transform your life to the best version of you, then sign up with Bobby. I highly recommend him.
