Latest Review: Anthony is awesome. He has great communication, designs tough yet effective workouts, always has a positive, upbeat attitude (even when under the weather!), and he is incredibly supportive! The gym is unique in that it doesn't feel like one of those massive 24 Hour Fitness behemoths that lack in the community department. God's Gym is very community oriented. Everyone supports one another, and it is really nice to see familiar faces every time I'm in the gym. The trainers want you to succeed and are not just in it to collect money. They legitimately want you to reach your goals, and that gets me through the grueling workouts 3 times/week. The equipment might seem obsolete at first glance. However, this is the kind of gym I imagine hardcore, loyal bodybuilding athletes go to train. Rocky Balboa would train at this gym whereas the scary Russian dude would be at Equinox (Rocky wins the fight in the end!). If you are looking for a no-frills, authentic gym experience, God's Gym is definitely a great place to go. I have only been training at this gym, but I look forward to sticking with it in the long run. Plus, they offer multiple training packages for all types, and it's very affordable. I'll see you at God's Gym!

Latest Review: I've been working with Evan and his team for quite some time now and would definitely recommend them to anyone. I've worked with several trainers in the past at other gyms or studios but have to say this has been the best experience. It's obvious all of the trainers here know fitness and teh facility is top notch. It's a very welcome and low key environment. I've seen several people in their 80s train here which has been great to see! It's never too crowded and only personal training. Would definitely recommend to anyone needing instruction on weight training or looking to get into shape.

Latest Review: 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!

Latest Review: Over the course of four months, I worked with two different trainers. Each was knowledgable, focused on results, professional and courteous. I am very pleased that I selected TrainerSF.

Latest Review: I love working with Laurie! She is great at planning a workout that fits your needs and goals. I know that every time we meet I am going to get a great workout in! Also the training goes beyond just the gym. She provides help with nutrition as needed. I've had other personal trainers before her and never stuck with them. I plan on sticking around with Laurie! I recently moved and it worked perfectly as she was able to accommodate the move and we could continue to work together! 10/10 recommend.

Latest Review: Christina is a wonderful empathetic trainer. She has a gentle yet motivating style of teaching, while maintaining a strong eye on details. I have been athletic the majority of my life and she was able to spot little things I was doing improperly that was straining my lower back and knees. The difference in proper positioning made a major difference in my endurance and results. I had very ambitious goals and with the 14 sessions I had twice a week with her, I was able to achieve every one of them. If my assignment in San Francisco was not over I would still be with her now. I wish Los Angeles had more trainers like Christina!!!!!

Latest Review: 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.

Latest Review: Scott is very down-to-earth, hardworking, knowledgable, and extremely pleasant to work with. Many trainers are like businessmen or showmen, but he is nothing like them. You truly enjoy the workout process and learn a lot from working with him. He has all the best qualities in a trainer I can ask for.

Latest Review: Worked with Ryan for two years. I'm a middle-aged female - a runner who needed to add strength training to my routine. By far the best trainer I've ever had. He showed me I was capable of far more than I thought I was. If he hadn't moved out of my area is still be working with him today. Can't recommend him highly enough.

Latest Review: I was lucky enough to have Fana Fuqua as a personal trainer. Fana, listened to my goals, created a program that was within my abilities and pushed me hard enough to improve my overall fitness and stamina! She is kind, patient, inventive and very professional. She is acutely aware of body position and would quickly re position me to improve my stance and avoid injury. My sessions with Fana left me stronger and healthier. I would highly recommend her to help you attain your goals and create a healthier you!! One of my favorite takeaways from her training was to be reminded BREATH! It is amazing how often we hold our breath when we are working out! I hear her voice every day in my current workout regime.
