I have lost 15 pounds and 20 inches in two months. I had back surgery in the summer and Meagan's training and nutrition was perfect. Karen Joseph

Rich was such an amazing investment in my life. I was 60lbs overweight and needed motivation and expert guidance to get this fat off! I am an ex college football player and figured I knew how to workout but just needed that push. So, I met each through a friend and let's just say what I thought I knew, I didn't. He showed me so many different exercises and the proper and safe way to reach my goals. His routines were ever changing and he kept it fun. His personality is great, he truly becomes your friend and coach. I lost the 60lbs in 8 months and I feel amazing. He truly is a life changer. His mind for training is one of a kind. The way he combines and create routines is something else and I have learned so much from him. I highly recommend him if you're looking for a trainer who will guide you step by step and give you the proper nutritional advice to reach your goals. He is a great person and trainer and you'll have so much fun along the way!

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.

Yesterday was the first day of training and all I can say is I got really lucky finding Mark. He's a very nice guy, he works with you perfectly, he's personable and genuinely cares. The really cool thing about working with Mark is that I'm walking away from our meetings feeling super motivated, even more than I expected. I'm looking forward to working with him through my journey of getting back to where I want to be weight and health-wise. I highly recommend Mark!

We’ve been very fortunate to have found Lauren. She started training my husband and I in June, 2015. She listens very close to Steve and I to uncover what matters to us as it relates to our goals, and has designed individual strategic plans to get us there. It’s a moving target and she changes it up as needed to keep us challenged and going in the right direction. This is including our nutrition and physical workout sessions. I am in my late 40's and have worked with a few trainers in the past, however no one quite like Lauren. This is her passion and I am sure this why she is so good at what she does. Her commitment is very strong to find what is going to bring us the changes we are looking for and keep us growing stronger and healthier along the journey! Lori & Steve K.

I've been doing personal training since 2010 through many different trainers, my all time favorite was with Brittany. I went through a phase where I wasn't conditioned to training, had gained weight and wasn't use to lifting weights. The first time we trained together, I thought it was really weird but she made it of importance about my breathing and posture and didn't just get right back into lifting like I use to. A couple sessions later, I really actually felt a difference because she made it important to recondition myself and make sure that I breathe properly while I train! She not only made me feel physically fit, she was a great person to talk to, and made me feel great while I worked out and constantly pushed me to be a better person. I wouldn't ever want another trainer, and when I'm done with my break from training, Brittany and I are going to be back out there hitting those new PR's!

I hired Tom initially to get in shape for my approaching wedding in Hawaii, which I then continued for 3 months after as the results were excellent. Tom pays attention to your goals, habits, metabolic type, and physical abilities. His diet suggestions and diversity in workout routines kept things interesting and fun (as fun as working out can be at first!) Tom's knowledge of CrossFit training, weights, and various other disciplines set him apart from your typical 24hr fitness trainer. He was willing to be flexible with my work schedule and was always available for a quick call or text. Tom provides encouragement, support, and puts together a solid plan to achieve your goals. I would highly recommend Tom for anyone hesitant or intimidated by the gym and or initial commitment of getting in shape.

I had the privilege to work with Lisa Michele and give her program my highest recommendation! The 90-day program put together by Lisa exceeded all my expectations! She taught me different ways to think about food, in terms of eating and preparing food. We also spent time discussing fitness topics, and even though I live in Phoenix, she was able to prescribe an exercise program that helped me meet my fitness and health goals. I finally lost those stubborn last 10 pounds I struggled to lose, strengthened my upper body and I even ran my first 5K race, with her training program, support, and encouragement. Lisa has a friendly personality, abundant energy, empathetic soul, and is a genuinely good person. Her program really worked for me.

Candon has been my personal trainer since 2014 and I am in so much better shape today, both physically and mentally, than when we started. In 2014 I was a real "newbie" -- with lots of "nevers": had a gym membership, "worked out", had a personal trainer, the list went on. Candon worked with me to assess what my goals were and what I wanted to achieve. He is very knowledgeable of physical anatomy. He's helped me so many times when I've come in suffering with overused or strained muscles--a side effect from sitting all day at my office job--he seems to know just the right exercises to help alleviate the pain and strengthen at the same time. He also helped a great deal during my rehabilitation after having both of my hips replaced. We both feel that I've healed fast. Candon has a great sense of humor and for me being able to have fun and laugh while I'm sweating and working my butt off is a real plus. (Sometimes we lose track of the number of reps and I end up working even harder!) I'm not the type of person who would ever do well with a "drill sergeant" screaming at me to do another push up or another rep! I highly recommend Canady Training for your personal training needs.

I've known Jon for a number of years. I met Jon when he was a student athlete at San Diego State University playing football. He's always been determined to be a personal trainer and there wasn't a droubt in my mind that he would reach that goal. When I learned that he was actually training people I had to see what he was doing. So I started following him on Instagram to see him in action. I was impressed with what he was doing with his clients that I called him up and set up an appointment. He stopped by my office (which I appreciated) and we talked about what my fitness goals and objectives were for training and the next week I was at his training facility training. He didn't go easy on me and he didn't let me slack on any part of my workouts. I thought he would take it easy on me but he didn't and I appreciate that. There were times I told him I couldn't do an exercise and that the weight was too heavy but he encouraged me to do it. And I did it. His positive attitude and patience with me makes him an AMAZING trainer. Not only does he care about your fitness journey but he cares about you as a person. Side note he allows me to have fun (telling jokes and singing) when I workout, while still pushing me to get better and stronger. I would recommend that you give Jon a chance and see for yourself what an AMAZING trainer he is.

I worked with Anthony from my sophomore year of high school to my senior year, and his training truly prepared me to be a Division 1 athlete and helped to keep my body healthy. When I first started training with Anthony I had a shoulder injury that prevented me from performing on the volleyball court and left me with constant shoulder pain, after a few months my injury was not only healed but I was actually playing better than I ever had. Throughout my time training with Anthony I gained 6-8 inches on my vertical jump and became much more powerful and explosive on the court allowing me to play on high level teams and be recruited by top schools throughout the nation. All of the training was very specific to my sport and it definitely showed. The focus on not only pushing my strength, but doing the lifts with the right technique kept my body healthy while still growing much stronger. Coming in to division 1 volleyball after working with him I was not only prepared, but ahead of the curve for our demanding strength and conditioning workouts. All in all, working with Anthony not only saved my shoulder and therefore my volleyball future, but helped make my entire body stronger and ready for the high impact of a division 1 sport!

Dina is an accomplished professional with over 20 years experience. I needed to train with someone who had my best interest at heart and I am very glad I met her. Dina is helping me with mobility issues. After 2 weeks I can say that I can actually move better.Dina is patient and thorough. She includes not only physical training but also diet and attitude along the way. She is fun but never looses track of the real goal...training. I will continue to go to Dina and will certainly tell friends about her.

Cutting right to the chase, beginning personal training with Brittney Reyna(Reign Athletics) at Self Made Training Facility is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am 34 years old and at no point in my life have I ever looked as good, felt as good or had as much confidence as I do now. I had been wanting get in shape for a long time but had no clue where to begin. I didn't know what exercises to do, what to eat or what gym would be a good fit for me. That's when I found Brittney and Self Made Training Facility. Training with Brittney is like being on a two person team. She cares just as much about my fitness goals as I do. Brittney has a genuine love for her profession and it shows. Whatever exercise we are doing she makes sure my form is correct and always pushes me to my limit to get the most out of the exercise. Brittney also keeps the exercises varied and challenging to get the best results. She always addresses any questions or concerns I have even on days we aren't training. Then there's the food. Brittney ensures I am getting proper nutrition with a custom made meal plan. The meal plan is easy to follow and made up of foods I enjoy. She changes and adjusts the plan as necessary to keep me on track. Brittney has been a great instructor, motivator and ally in my fitness journey. I have a ways to go yet to reach my goal but I have every confidence I will get there with her help. I couldn't ask for more. As far as the facility, Self Made Training Facility has all of the equipment you expect to find in a top notch gym and everything is clean and well maintained. The atmosphere, however, is what really sets Self Made apart from other gyms. Every time I come in I see other happy, energetic clients being pushed, motivated and encouraged towards their fitness goals by their trainers. Everyone is friendly, upbeat and positive. Its a place you want to be at, not have to be at. So there you have it, Brittney(IG @ReignandGain) and Self Made are the real deal, 100 out of 100. My only regret is not starting sooner!

I am so happy to have found a personal trainer who is extremely knowledgeable about the field and very patient with someone who is just getting into fitness. I have been training with Stacey for almost 2 months now and love that our workouts are challenging yet fun. Aside from the workouts, she has created a diet plan specific to me and my needs. My fitness goal is to lose weight and to tone. I am definitely confident that continuing my training and diet plan with Stacey will get me to my goal body! Thank you for all that you do!!
