Latest Review: I have trained with Paul Harvey for 5+ years. I have been working with various trainers for 15 years total, and had never found one who understood my goals and knew how to achieve them. When I started with Paul I was 178 lbs. At 6'4" tall, that was very skinny. My goal was to put on lean muscle. I've added about 30lbs of lean muscle and have a six pack. Paul advises me on how to achieve my goals both inside the gym and at home. He is a smart guy and can carry on a conversation about more than just working-out. He makes me laugh and we have lively debates about current events. Even when I take the skills I've learned from him to my own solo workouts, I still never sweat as much as I do when I work out with Paul. He is a great motivator.

Latest Review: When I first decided to start working out with a personal trainer, I looked online for personal trainers in Pasadena. I ultimately decided to go with Hugo based on all of the positive reviews I read of him on here. Since the reviews initially helped me make a decision on choosing Hugo as my personal trainer, I just had to leave my own review. Before committing to train with Hugo, he offered me an introductory deal so that I could experience working out with him. The first couple sessions he evaluated my strength, endurance, and overall physical ability. Once my fitness level and goals were established, Hugo set up a training program and nutritional plan for me. He begins every session by explaining and demonstrating the exercises in the circuit. He also clarifies and demonstrates the importance of proper form, which makes it really easy for me since I'm a visual learner. At any point during the exercise if I forget to use proper form, Hugo reminds me and encourages me throughout. He is very good at helping me understand which muscles each exercise is working out. I like how during every session, he is focused, patient, and motivates me to make sure I'm giving it my all. His professionalism and friendliness make it all that much more of a positive experience training with him. I've been training with Hugo for about three months now, and I can say that I'm truly happy with my results so far. My strength and endurance have greatly increased since our first session. I've noticed my body fat decrease and my muscle mass increase. I also feel much better when I'm exercising and eating healthy, it has greatly helped with my anxiety. I definitely plan on continuing to train with Hugo. I'm excited to see how my fitness level and physique continue to progress. I'm glad that I chose Hugo as my personal trainer, it is obvious that he loves what he does and cares about his clients. I definitely recommend Hugo for anyone looking for a personal trainer, you will not regret it!

Latest Review: I am not what you would call a very active person. I was eating unhealthily; work outs were few and far between, and I was feeling really down with myself. I tried the trainers at my gym and while they weren't awful, they lacked some connection to you; yeah they were cheerleaders, but they are also helping 12 other clients. With Gabriel, I found a personal connection that felt like he was genuinely concerned for my well being. I've personally known Gabriel for about 5-6 years, but as a trainer he is compassionate, encouraging, and willing to work with you, IF you put in the work. I'm working in his long distance group, and originally the thought of doing long distance made me a wary, but Gabriel stays active. Following up with you each week to check on your progress; 1:1 meetings so that you can vent or discuss what's working and what doesn't. Yet the best thing, is that he listens. He doesn't try to put you on to a plan that is one size fits all, he adapts to what you can do that point and time and has that plan grow as you grow. I would recommend DeVine Phsiques to any one who is looking for a trainer either near or far!

Latest Review: First of all, its great to see Mami going independent. I am her former client, I moved to Chicago a while back, but hey, this girl really changed my body type from being obese to being in shape. I still do most of the work out that she has taught me and as she has done many sports such as gymnastics, martial arts, and dance, she taught me all the hard yet great conditioning that no trainers have never taught me. She is awesome, sweet, and super bad ass, yet she is hardcore some point because she wants to see her clients successfully reaching their goals. Thank you for asking me to review you, girl, and you know I got your back, and I know you will do awesome. I can see her completely successful doing on her own.

Latest Review: Mike is an awesome trainer. His workouts vary and they are always intense and challenging. He always caters the workout to whatever goal you have set. Unlike most trainers, he is not worried about collecting your money as he is about building a life coach relationship. He understands work sometimes gets in the way and you can't always commit to a schedule. We just make it up on another day. No big deal. Most trainers try to charge you even if an emergency does happen. But back to his work outs...it is intense. But he always makes it fun. Stick with his workouts and nutritional plan and you'll be shredded in no time. He is easy going, funny but more importantly, he is totally invested into your health. Best trainer at Madator Fitness (Pasadena, CA)!

Latest Review: I've been working with trainers for about 10 years, and JJ is truly the best trainer I have ever had. He is truly invested in helping you achieve your goals, and he provides me with the push and support that I need. Instead of doing the same thing over and over again (like so many trainers do), he varies the workouts and will adapt the routine to my energy and strength level... all while keeping me on track and pushing me. Better yet, he's a great guy. JJ was an awesome find, and I have no doubt that I'll continue to see amazing results.

Latest Review: Kelly helped me get into shape right before I became pregnant. She helped me focus on a work-out plan that fit well with my goals and what I wanted to achieve. She also customized a monthly meal plan exclusively for me and my interests. I couldn't be more happy with her dedication to push me when I needed the drill sergeant trainer, but also balance it out and be supportive when I was not feeling well or sick and needed to take things slow. Another plus factor with Kelly is that she LOVES dogs. We incorporated workouts that helped me focus on myself, without feeling guilty or losing out on time I could spend with my dog outdoors. Kelly is super professional, educated and experienced in personal training. I would recommend her to any of my closest family and friends.

Latest Review: I have had an amazing experience with Calvin! For most of my life I struggled keeping weight off. I could lose the weight, but never keep it off. It was always so disappointing. Then I met Calvin and it changed everything!!! He not only help me lose weight and transform my body, he has also helped me keep it off. For over 3 years now I have kept it off!!! Calvin has me do exercises that I was never able to do, or thought I could never do before. My experience with him has been so motivating. I always feel amazing after a workout with him. Even when I feel like it's too hard!!! He's help me change my life!!! I am grateful to have Calvin as my trainer!!!! He's the best;)

Latest Review: I started training over at A4 about a year and a half ago - with about a 5 month break due to a relocation for work. A4 helped me get in shape physically and mentally when I prepared for my first tournament. I ended up taking second, and I owe it all to the coaches and students here. Adam, Akkim & A4 Fitness can take you to new levels. This place feels like home. There is definitely a family aspect that surrounds the gym, and every new person that comes in can instantly feel it. I've tried a few other gyms around the area and none can compare to the attention you get in these classes from the coaches. I recommend to all of my friends and family! Hopefully I can take myself to new highs this year while back at A4, but I really have no doubts.
