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!

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

I have enjoyed starting my fitness training. Jobi has been very patient with me and has taken the time to tailor my workout to my specific needs. Knowing when to push me or to encourage me, he has been very professional and his experience and knowledge in this field is evident. I especially appreciate how flexible his schedule is.

I have always been an athlete growing up, and I still consider myself pretty fit. However was getting bored just running and didn't want to spend the money going to a crowded gym so decided to give personal training a try. Lana is the perfect choice! I've been with Lana for a little over a week and she is outstanding! Very professional, and nice yet extremely motivating. She knows a lot about cardio and strength training, and even runs with me during our workouts. I highly recommend Lana.

She is great to work with. At first I was a little skeptical working wit has a female because there wasn't many male reviews but she really knows how to get you motivated. She gets you back on track when you have bad weeks tracking nutrition. I haven't started training with her yet and have only done the nutrition portion. I've been working through injuries and her ability to design a proper macro program has got me where I need to be, now that I'm healthy I look forward to seeing how she challenges me with training!

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'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!

Where to begin! First off Matt is seriously just amazing and one of the sweetest people you will ever meet. He truly loves what he does and cares about each and everyone of his clients. When I first started training with him I was around a size 10 pushing 12, after training with him for about a year, I am down to a size 4 and have lost a decent amount of weight but also put on a lot of muscle. He helped me become the strongest I've ever been in my life and become more confident in myself. He helps you understand what you should eat and how you should be eating. So it's not that he's just training you, he's also teaching you. I can't even begin to tell you all that he has taught me. If you need a trainer, he truly is your guy. He will help you reach whatever goals you have and you will love the training sessions!

I did a lot of research on the internet on Fitness Trainers before deciding on Colby and was thoroughly impressed & satisfied with the training program he set out for me. I loved the professionalism of the whole experience; his knowledge, work ethic, the FACILITY & STAFF. It was not a "meat locker" but people with a common purpose working hard to attain it. What I love was Colby was 100% on me in training ... no wandering eyes, answering phone with other clients and NEVER gave me the sense he was board with what he was doing. Always encouraging and keenly aware of what I was going thru mentally as well as physically. Though I have moved out of the area, I still hitting him up with advice and help & he always responds ... he is the man! Try that with some of the other trainers after your contract is up! Highly recommend him to anyone that is serious about their training on ALL levels. I am no pin up model lol. Thanks Colby!

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.

“Amanda Zizzo is a beast! She is tough, competent, determined, and enthusiastic. She’ll push you mentally, physically, and emotionally. Because of her guidance and help, I’ve lost weight, I’m stronger, I have better stamina, and balance. I’m more confident and healthier than before. Amanda, thank you for being you! She believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself. She is one of a kind!” Abby was set up on a two-month program with me and once we started training, the transformation had begun! She consistently worked out 4-5 times a week and followed the plan I had given her. On top of the workouts, she maintained a healthy diet by following her macro count and nutrition guidance. Abby made sure to stay on top of her cardio program as well, which was 3-4 times a week, including some HIIT (high-intensity interval training) cardio. She is so driven, and has put a lot of effort into her fitness journey. She began to have more energy and strength, wore a bigger smile on her face, and had more confidence. With her positive mindset and dedication to the workout program, she has dropped 15 pounds. I am so happy that I could help her with her transformation, and guide her throughout the experience. The greatest part is that this is only the beginning of her fitness journey! We are still training to this day, and she continuously strives to be better. I am so excited to see what goals she can achieve and how far she can go!

Vera is a very motivating trainer and gives excellent instruction and advice based on individual needs. I joined Vera's running group in April 2017 and later began strength training with her, and as a result have been in the best shape for the last 15 years.

I have had a few different trainers before finding Brittney, and I didn’t have a great experience with them. I felt as if the meal plans that I was recieving were pre-made and not really for me. Training with Brittney, she’s provided me a meal plan that works for me! There’s certain things I cannot eat and she makes the point to form the plan around my tolerance and still achieve results. I have lost 10 pounds in two months of training with her AND gained 5 pounds of muscle! I feel amazing. I am still training with her and plan to. With demanding job as photographer, I find it really easy to get the work done and it’s all explain for me in the app. Best trainer I have ever had! Thank you for all your hard work! 5 out of 5!

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.
