I started working out with OJ towards the beginning of January- I had lead a sedentary lifestyle for a long time and felt kinda lost on where to begin. So far I've lost 14lbs, feel stronger, and feel more confident and capable while working out. I feel like he is a great choice for anyone started from a place of low fitness or obesity. PROS -it's private. I always felt very self-conscious working out in the big commercial gyms with tons of people around. There have never been more than 2 other clients (of his partner) during my sessions and often there is no one else. I can focus 100% on form and effort rather than getting caught up in how ridiculous, red-faced etc I must look -attention & assistance even outside of sessions. He's always quick to reply to texts whether its scheduling, nutritional questions, or asking for a routine to do. He's also been very accommodating when I've had to cancel or reschedule. -Limits! I feel he is so good in this department. I always leave a session feeling like I've been pushed to the very edge of my limits but not past- the only 2 times I went to far was due to stuff on my end that I hadn't mentioned (sick/hadn't eaten). He doesn't let me quit when I have to pause but can keeping going overall and he'll call me on it when he knows I can push harder, go faster etc, but he'll adjust the exercise if he sees I'm truly approaching the edge of my capabilities. And he's never misjudged which is which so far. Similarly, I can't get away with slacking on form due to fatigue or inattention but I'm not pushed to have form that I'm just not capable of yet (ex. pushups) This has probably been the biggest thing that keeps me coming back-I've had trainers who wanted more than I'm physically capable of, or pushed me to the point of failure which is very discouraging. -Each session is different and varied- I don't get bored. Also if I ask for a particular exercise he's always been willing to add it to the next session which is nice. -Sincere praise. When he tells me I'm doing a good job I know I actually have! That's way more encouraging than liberal amounts of undeserved praise CONS -The only con/downside is that I was initially looking to focus on lifting- reviewing moves, making sure my form was good, and developing a routine or 2 I could use at my regular gym. But I was also only planning to do a month of training and I'm at 2.5 now, and more than fulfilling my larger goal of general weightloss/fitness! So obviously it's a very minor complaint.
Jake helped me with training advice and nutrition advice when he used to live in the UK, before he moved to LA. His information has really helped me, both in terms of improving health and fitness levels. He is incredibly motivating and inspiring - and he was so keen to help me as an individual and find out what would work best for me. I didn't like 'traditional' exercise, like endless runs or boring gym machines - but Jake could find ways to mix it up, keep it fresh and interesting, and I even managed to have fun along the way! I would definitely recommend Jake as a personal trainer to help you achieve your individual health and fitness goals.
Emile has literally helped me change my life. When I met him I was 15lbs heavier and in a very negative place. With his guidance and support I've completely changed my life. He never gave up on me, and his belief in me helped me build confidence in myself to change. We not only worked on the body (amazing workouts and amazing nutritional counseling!), but also the mind and the spirit. True transformation!! Training with Emile has been an incredible journey and it's not even close to being over!!
Great Trainer!!! My son who is a high school defensive line player thinks he's the best. Nutritional instruction to help him during training and regular feedback on what he needs to do to reach his goals. We are very pleased thus far!
Kellie is OUTSTANDING!!!! From nutrition to physical training, she has it *ALL* covered!!! I'm reaching my goals of weight loss and feeling fit for the first time in years!!! Kellie is enthusiastic and professional, I could not have asked for a more positive experience!!!!
Meghan Aro is an embodiment of beauty and physical strength. She always inspired me to go beyond my limits and with her guidance and training, I became not only physically but also mentally strong. I have lost 30 lbs, completed a 26.2mile marathon, and am currently training for a half Ironman. Meghan is an exceptional trainer who educates her clients about their bodies and provides not just exercise but also nutritional advice. She customizes and centers her workouts around the client. Every day is a new challenge. I strongly recommend Meghan to all my friends and loved ones.
Great. She is professional, on time and knows her stuff. I've never really been successful with getting fit because I never understood nutrition but now I get it and I think I'm on my way to my goals.
Elite Fitness is top notch. Mariano is the man! Im down 12 lbs in 2 weeks and Im seeing great results due to his nutrition guide and workout plan.
I've worked with several athletic trainers in my past, and Joe is by far the best I've ever had. He's extremely professional, knows what he's talking about, and his sessions have made a HUGE difference on my body and life (in the most positive way possible). Joe also makes the extra effort to ensure proper form to avoid injury during all exercises. He is knowledgable about human anatomy and gives valuable nutritional advice. I highly recommend him- he is worth every penny!
I've never enjoyed working out (especially in group settings), but as I get older I realize it is necessary for general wellbeing. Starting up with Jason was a great way of easing back into the swing of things while not have to deal with contracts and commercial gyms. His expertise in choosing appropriate exercises movements, scaling, scheduling, as well as sharing some of his nutrition tips, have made our biweekly sessions something I actually look forward to!
Jeanne Peters was rsferred to me by my sister. I thought enough of whaymt i had heared about her expert evaluations that i traveled fro Arizona to meet wigh her..she did a thorough Nutritional evaluation and i must say no one since including my own physicians gave me the time she afforded me. Jeanne Peters turned on a light to Vitamin D deficiencies and can only blame myself for not placing a Vitamin order once i realized they could be beneficial... I joined in Jeanne Peters Bone Density Camp online for several evening and once again was very impressed.. i have visited CALIF and have stopped in on ocassion but have found her out of the office.Sorry i missed you. Jeanhe Peters evaluated my yearly results on Blood work with her recommendations. Having a Nutritionist as sharp and intelligent as Jeanne Peters is an essentiall need for each of us..Once you are advised in regards to your health listen and take hede. I neglected to take Vit D and became ill it affecting my immune system..after a year of chronic ilness i can say that the Vit D is essential in my well being. Jeanne Peters is available and it is our responsibility to govern our health and call on her for advice visits and ongoing nutritional care and support. I love her videos of her Kale Salad and her soup made from cooking a variety of bones. I learned so much. You see i was listening closely and will once again review and assess and follow through in regards to my health. Thank you Jeanne Peters for opening my eyes to good health. !!!!
After 3 weeks on Mr Slotkin's ClearVite detoxification program I had much increased energy even upon awakening caffeine free. I was able to sleep with less frequent restroom visits even at 63 years old with longer and more restful REM sleep. In addition, even though I was no more than 10 lbs above the ideal and my body mass index was fair to good, I lost approximately 10 lbs of non-lean body mass (abdominal fat) and my BMI improved to midrange-good for my age. I have been a sports medicine podiatrist that, including my training, have treated patients for almost 42 years. Forty years ago i started learning the proper use of what was known at that time of different vitamins and minerals. I later started learning a little amount of common herbs. Even though i have been trying to take the most advanced nutritional supplements for decades, Mr Slotkin's expertise and knowledge has taken my health, through his recommendations, of diet and supplementation to levels i have never seen or experienced. I highly recommend utilizing Mr Slotkin's knowledge and expertise to achieve your own health goals.
Jeremy helped me to lose my baby weight and he made something that felt very overwhelming to me actually fun and enjoyable! He’s more than just a trainer- we had talks about nutrition and fitness and how to become a better person overall! Jeremy’s laugh is infectious and he is the perfect blend of being such an amazing professional and being completely relatable and down to earth at the same time!! I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking to start their health journey or to anyone looking to take their current journey to the next level!
Courtney is the best trainer I have ever had! She is educated, committed, and will help you reach your goals. She whipped my butt into shape and taught me so much about nutrition and exercise. Because she is so upbeat and funny, I had more fun working out than I ever anticipated! I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to get in shape with a down to earth, fun, knowledgeable and experienced trainer!
Doing nutritional consultations with Kay Curtis is one of the best things I've ever done. Here's the deal: I was an athlete, and in great shape until I injured my knees in a subway accident. Being unable to run, over the years, I gained weight. There were some other life changes that also contributed to the weight gain. I've always been interested in being healthy and I was taking a lot of vitamins and supplements. I read the ads or heard about the newest supplement on the market that would support some body system or prevent some unhealthy thing from happening. "Prevention" was the buzzword that would hook me. I was "trying" to be healthy. I started seeing Kay Curtis because I had heard other success stories. In my first meeting with her, she had me bring in all of the supplements I'd been taking. She tested me on all them and I found out that I tested poorly on a lot of them. Yikes! She then tested me on the extremely high-quality supplements that she uses from Standard Process. The purpose of testing me on many supplements was to find out what organs needed help (adrenals, heart, etc.) Her philosophy is, in order to lose weight, you need to be healthy. So I got rid of the "bad" supplements and started on the ones Standard Process that Kay recommended. The first thing I noticed was that I was sleeping better. For many years I've had problems getting to sleep. I don't any more. This is a MAJOR win! Secondary to that, I have lost 35 pounds. Those supplements I was taking in an effort to be healthy were actually working against me. There was no logical system to what I was doing, I was just adding things to the mix hoping that they were doing what they were supposed to do. Every sane diet tells you to stop eating bread. I've been addicted to bread my whole life and have tried to stop eating it many times. Bread was one of my favorite foods. I couldn't imagine a meal without it. I actually didn't feel like a meal was complete unless I had at least one piece of bread. Until now. One of Kay's suggestions was to try a low-carb bread. Usually stuff like that is awful but she has found a low-carb bread that actually tastes good and has a good texture (not like other "alternatives" to bread that taste awful and have the texture of crusty old gym socks). The first couple of weeks on the diet Kay recommended were very hard, but I lived through them. She is very helpful, with good suggestions for getting through rough spots and things that a difficult. This is not a deprivation diet. The idea is to have meals be satisfying and healthy. I was never hungry on this diet. Snacks are encouraged - healthy ones. Now, I don't crave sweets all the time. I don't have to have chocolate. (I never thought I'd say that!) That's amazing. I can't believe that when I want a snack, I think about having a cucumber! And I love it. There's a lot of false data, fad diets and junk supplements out there. I'm so glad that I have Kay Curtis to advise me in this complicated and crazy area. I highly recommend Curtis Nutrition - not just to fix what might be ailing you, but to achieve optimal health and wellness. Kay Curtis is there for you, with solutions.
I was introduced to Elayne Good about two years ago. At that time I couldn't boil water. Elaine has painstakingly taught me about food, food combinations, food preparation, and general education on nutrition. I have watched her in the kitchen and marveled at the fact that she is like a chemist. She experiments with foods and flavors and ingredients and can come up with inventive and delicious new foods in a single meal. I adore this woman and could not recommend her highly enough. She is brilliant she is warm she is an incredible chef.
I started working with Shelly Joseph when I was a freshmen in high school. I played competitive and high school soccer and had a friend recommend her for some personal training. It was probably the best decision I made for my competitive career. Her personal training helped me become one of the strongest players on the field. When it came to working out she really helped test my muscles as a soccer player. She kept my muscles balanced and healthy all throughout my career. Even when I was injured from an ankle injury she helped me with my rehab and pinpointing how we could make my ankle stronger. She is more than a personal trainer, she has a lot of knowledge from nutrition to understanding why certain areas in my body were hurting. She made working out fun and I looked forward to going to the gym. I was in the best shape of my life during my time with Shelly.
My name is Brett Beck and I have had the pleasure to work with Lela for over two years now. She was someone that was always on time, positive attitude, outgoing and always went out of her way to help out with any task. Working with her clients she was always very detailed and personable. She understands people and how to work with different personalities to push those individuals to hit there goals or over all better themselves. I definitely would recommend her for anyone that needs training or nutrition. Thanks Brett
Patricia was fantastic! I was in need of both energy healing and nutrition counseling, and Patricia was there every step of the way. Her energy healing was deeply helpful in clearing some past emotional trauma. In terms of the nutrition counseling, she provided me with weekly goals that we devised together to accomplish. She really worked with me to figure out what MY goals were based on my health history and to provide the support and vast knowledge to achieve those goals. Her supply of information was extremely enlightening and new to me, but she made it not only easy to understand, but fun to implement. I have had more fun working with food since I worked with Patricia. She doesn't teach you to diet and restrict your food, but she teaches you how to enjoy your food and get the most out of it. Most importantly, she teaches you to really enjoy it and make the best choices for yourself everyday. It helped me, a sufferer of frequent migraines, to lessen the frequency of those migraines to almost nonexistent. I can't recommend her services more highly, and I look forward to continuing to work with her!
Emily Luxford is one of the most knowledgeable and compassionate health practitioners I've ever encountered. I have complicated health issues and I take a rare medication that most doctors have never heard of. Emily had looked up this medication before my first appointment and familiarized herself with the side effects. I was incredibly impressed with her on that first visit and have been ever since. Emily has been a key factor in my successful journey towards improved health.
