To give you an idea of how qualified this gentleman is...I'm a personal trainer who also uses THUMBTACK and James Terry is MY trainer! As it turns out we're both also professional mma fighters and James has helped me improve my wrestling, jiu-jitsu, striking and conditioning for nearly all of my fights. James' personal training knowledge and experience gives him the ability to help a variety of different people. Whether you're a proud new mother looking to lose that baby weight or a hungry mma fighter looking to come up the ranks; James "Intensity" Terry is your guy!

James Terry has been my mma teammate, friend and corner for fights for the last 10 years. James is second to none with work ethic and consistency. He understands how to work and improve anyone at any level. Whether you want to become a top of the line fighter, get in great shape or just improve yourself, I recommend James Terry.

Kelvin is awesome! I've been training with him for 9 months to improve my cycling skills. He tailors his programs to my needs as a cyclist and I've seen fast and continuos improvement, from losing 10 lbs to strengthening my muscles and to speed increase on my bicycle rides. Kelvin has also helped me get back on track after a back injury, he provided exercises and slowly got me into shape again while strengthening my back so I don't suffer from an injury again. Lastly, Kelvin has been a great support for me when mental challenges have made me feel that I can't continue with my training to reach my goals. He has given me advice and cheers me on to continue with my training. Overall Kelvin is the whole package, he provides tailored exercises, emotional support, and injury recovery! I highly recommend him!

I took Kelvin's Thai kickboxing classes at the LinkedIn corporate gym. His classes were always challenging and fun, regardless of your skill level. Kelvin did a great job honing the technique of the the regulars and people with prior fight training. And Kelvin always welcomed new newcomers and helped them develop foundational skills. Even though I took Kelvin's classes once or twice a week for over a year, I never got bored. Kelvin changed up the classes pretty frequently with new drills and strike combos. One of the things I really miss about working at LinkedIn is coming to Kelvin's class.

Kelvin is by far the best personal trainer I have worked with. His dedication to his craft and his clients is truly awesome. My colleagues and I have had great results almost entirely because of him. He was one of the top reasons for me to stay at LinkedIn.

Cindy's experience and professionalism really shows during our first consultation and workout. Cindy addressed my muscle imbalance with my hips and shoulders. After 3 sessions with Cindy, I've already started feeling some improvements with my movements. Her workouts are challenging. She knows when to push me when I needed and adjust to my needs. I like her coaching and positive encouragement and a good personality. I've sample 4 other trainers before meeting with Cindy. All 4 trainers put me through the same workout right away with benching & squats. Cindy was different and I was sold right away.

I have been training with Cindy Hom at Apex Wellness for five years. She is a terrific trainer! I'm a senior and she knows just how to deal with the difficulties associated with age. She's added many years to my life. It's no joke staying in good physical condition at my advanced age. She understands the human body and has consistently pushed me to do things I didn't think I could do. Working with her has allowed me to keep up with my great-granddaughter, which is not easy to do. Knowledgeable AND understanding is the way I would summarize Cindy's approach. You can't go wrong!

I love my workouts with Cindy. She is keen with my abilities. I'm an advance exerciser, Cindy's workouts were intense and challenges me. I love the fact that Cindy incorporates kickboxing into my training. I felt every single muscle in my body. 2 days of strength training and 2 days of kickboxing. I look forward to my sessions every day. I'm starting to feel a difference in my body.

Thomas is a phenomal trainer, I would rate my overall expierence with him as an 11/10. His multi-faceted training approach targets everything from nutrition, personalized training regamines, recovery and supplementation. My sessions have included strength and interval training as well as self defense martial arts. I work in law enforcement and found a necessity to upgrade my hand to hand techniques which Thomas as helped me greatly improve. After several sessions with Thomas I was able to learn his diverse background in the fitness realm, from high school athlete to professional mixed martial artist. His training sessions were very specific to my need, and extremely intense as well. Not only is he an excellent coach that talks the talk with an encyclopedia of knowledge, he walks the walk. It's nice to see a trainer who practices what they preach and puts in the work. If you want an awesome workout and great session check him out.

I've been training/working out with Tom for almost 6months now. Training with Tom is great, his knowledge of different workouts and exercises helped me grow as an athlete. His pricing is fair and a better rate than most trainers in the area. The workouts are always different and help me hit the goals or skills I want to improve on such as, improvements in my boxing/kickboxing, wrestling, jiu jitsu, mobility and also strength training. When I first started working with Tom I was completely new to lifting but now I am able to lift 1.5% of my body weight in both my squat and deadlift. His ability to adapt to my needs whether minor injuries or muscle soreness is fantastic. Tom puts his clients as a priority and has never been late to any of our training sessions; he's been more than flexible to work with my frantic schedule weather it's training early in the morning, afternoon, or late at night.

Thomas is such an awesome trainer. I’ve been working out with him for the 6 months and have noticed such a difference in my body and how I feel on a day to day basis. He’s helped me get into great shape, while also improving my mobility and strength. Would totally recommend him!

I contacted Terri to teach a self-defense class to a group of 18-year-old young women, before they went off to college. Terri was quick to respond to my e-mails and easy to work with. She organized the class, complete with online sign-up and payment and we were all set. The girls loved the class and felt that Terri not only taught them physical ways to protect themselves, but she also gave them loads of advice about how to carry themselves, how to react in situations, what to be thinking about, etc. I would recommend Terri highly.

Terri was incredibly helpful. She gave me two private lessons preparing me for self defense (body lang, verbal and physical skills) for me to use when traveling the world alone. I highly recommend using her as a resource. She tailored my lessons to my needs, was personable, and I learned a ton and gained confidence! Thanks Terri!

Terri Giamartino reached out immediately. It was very clear that she sees her students as a community and family. I went for a free class to try it out. She was very welcoming and so were the other students. I was immediately accepted into this fold.

I was a little hesitant to train with Geoff at first since he owns a martial arts gym & I wasn't that interested in the sport. I saw an image in my head & wondered what training with him would be like. In my head I saw a scene from the karate kid & didn't think he'd give me the kind of workout I was looking for. I am SO glad I decided to ignore my initial hesitation & try things out. The workouts we do change every time & I'm constantly challenged & out of breath. He incorporates a boot camp style approach with weights, lunges, running & several surprises that will keep you guessing walking into each session. Geoff will push you but be right there with you, encouraging you the entire way. I came home from the first workout so sore & spent & was instantly addicted. My sister listened to me detail the session & signed herself up to train with Geoff the next day. My body is already transforming & my endurance is increasing. I won't be giving up my training time slot with Geoff anytime soon.

I have worked with Geoff in three different areas. 1. My grandson took Jui Jitsu with Geoff and his team for a year. He excelled and did tournaments and placed. The professional and personal style of training for children is excellent. 2. I took kickboxing for about nine months with three different ladies in which Geoff was our instructor. I gained strength and endurance through these classes. Enough to where I am now in the third phase of our relationship in training. 3. I now train with Geoff twice a week. We work on kickboxing, endurance and Boot Camp training. Switching off each training session because I need to switch it up. That is to say that Geoff will personalize your training if that is what you need. Pro-Fraction is what I needed for fitness.

Geoff Quares has been training my family for the past several months and I couldn't be happier with the results. My wife and son are avid Muay Thai and jiu jitsu fighters and are very impressed with the quality of training Geoff provides. In December of 2014, I too decided to put my gloves on and give Muay Thai a shot. This past month, Geoff has combined intensive physical training (both cardio and muscle-building) with his Muay Thai expertise, to create a perfect program for my needs. I have gained knowledge and skills, as well as improved my physical health substantially over the past several weeks and look forward to what is to come. My three year old daughter is eager to take his classes and I highly recommend Geoff as a trainer for all ages and levels.

All sport Martial arts has been an outstanding Influence in my life. Run by Jay and Gina Auen the couples energy is magical. Over the past 5 years I've watched them give countless children, and adults the skills needed to live a life of excellence. Teaching them the leadership skills, Team work, and self discipline needed to lead successful lives. The best part is neither of them stop learning new drills and techniques, there is always something new at All Sport every time I walk in.I am 100% Certain without their coaching and guidance my life would not be nearly as successful or Joyful for that matter, it is both an honor and privilege to be a student here and I hope to see some of you at the gym in the future. Do your best, forget the rest - All Sport Martial arts.

My three children have been training with Jay since they were five years old. Now that they are becoming teenagers, they look to him for physical training but also as a life coach. Jay teaches self discipline and respect as he coaches. My wife and I have been training with Jay for the last one year. We have trained with Jay for fitness, self defense, kickbox, and jujitsu. Since we enjoy working with him, we have also scheduled our own private family classes with him. I learn something new each class and have fun at the same time. I have lost over 40 pounds in the last one year.

I've been attending Allsport since I was five years old; that's almost thirteen years now. And there still isn't a class where I don't learn something new. Not to mention all the life lessons and self discipline Allsport has caused me to accumulate. Jay and Gina really do have an amazing program.And now we share an amazing gym with battle control, which makes everything even better. So over all I would definitely recommend you come train with us.

A great place to work out! I have known and trained with Jeremy for over 15 years, and I am excited that he has finally decided to open up a school. I have studied martial arts for over 20 years at various schools and styles ranging from Tae Kwon Do (with Jeremy) Capoeria, Muay Thai, Judo, and Wing Chun. Of all my instructors, and I have had some great ones, I can safely attest that Jeremy was the one that allowed me to grow the most. if you are a beginner, or advanced in martial arts I guarantee that if you spend six months training under Jeremy at IMA, you will see tremendous improvement with your technique and fitness goals.

Niko Skuljan and I met nearly three years ago (come this June) I posted an Ad on Craigslist for a private one on one Martial Arts instructor (I moved up from San Francisco to Sonoma full time 3 years ago) and decided to give up my Martial Arts trainer in the city, and Niko responded. We agreed to meet, go over in great detail, what my background in training was, what was important for me in my training, and his philosophy on Combat training, in other words....a very comprehensive consultation. The followoing week we began our training. I have been involved in one form of Martial Arts for years, whether it be Judo, A little Tae Kwon Do, Kickboxing and now, with Niko, traditional Boxing, Muay Thai (or Thai kickboxing) as well as Jeet Kune Do (Bruce Lee's form of Martial Artistry) as well as a little Wing Chun. Niko Skuljan is very adverse in ALL of these forms of combat training! He is passionate, very patient, always reliable and extremely knowledgeable! And has an eye like a hawk! Nothing gets by Niko! Never fails to correct your form or stance, but also demonstrates it for you, so you have a visual to go by. We film our sessions, and He and I agree, that is a great way to see whatever might need correcting or what is being executed precisely! He and I have developed a friendship as well (as he is a highly intelligent individual and someone you feel an immediate connection or bond with) Even if Niko is delayed with traffic (as he lives in a different town then Sonoma) he is always fair and we always make up the time on another day of training. I would highly recommend Niko Skuljan to anyone that is considering taking their Martail Arts training to a much higher level! He certainly has mine! Len H. Sonoma, CA
