OJ is 1 of the best personal trainers I've ever come into contact with. For starters, your initial meeting is a workout created to personalize your strengths and weaknesses for future sessions. Afterwards, he speaks with you regarding your target goals, time frame, ideal weight etc. Meanwhile, he's compiling a special profile just for you in his computer. He sends weekly updates on your progress like: body fat percentage and weight loss/gain. In addition, he also sends motivational text messages during the week. He really is the most professional personal trainer I've ever encountered. I'm just 3 weeks into my training sessions and I'm already seeing results. Thanks OJ!

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.

What stands out most about Manuk is how much he cares for his clients. Every workout is personalized and he takes the time to show you the proper form for each exercise. He takes health and injuries into account and adapts accordingly, while maintaining a challenging workout regime. He makes himself very available to contact, I've had plenty of nights where I frantically text him and ask what I should eat instead of junk food. Manuk is great at making personal connections with his clients. He'll remember what you have going on in your life outside of the gym and shows a genuine interest. I think this connection is important to seeing results. On days where I am not feeling it, Manuk is there to push me and I don't want to let him down. I love starting my mornings working out with Manuk, it sets my day off in such a positive way that I can't help bring that positivity with me everywhere else. Manuk is always open to feedback which to me is a sign of a true professional. If you are considering getting a personal trainer, I strongly recommend contacting Manuk. He offers a free consultation so you really have nothing to lose...except for maybe some spare lbs :)

Vinny is amazing at what he does. He really took the time during the initial consultation to get to know me and find out what my needs were. His approach encompasses the well being of mind, body and spirit. His demeanor is calm and professional, and it is apparent that he truly cares about his clients' success. This is my first experience with a personal trainer, and I was quite nervous about what I may find. In Vinny, I found much more than I could have hoped for. I have no doubt that he will help me reach my goals.

Ronnie is someone worth having as a personal trainer. As someone who normally does my own thing when working out, I was nervous with opening up to her when we first met. Needless to say, I had nothing to be so nervous about. Ronnie made a point of making me comfortable so I could voice my physical concerns and goals without any problem. She crafted a challenging workout plan for me to follow as well as put me on to counting the calories I eat to give me a firsthand look at what I need to put to aside in order to get to where I physically need to be. Incorporating a perfect form when exercising to get the maximum result is Ronnie's specialty. I definitely felt the difference between how I used to workout and how I workout now. If you are in search of a great trainer who knows her stuff and will stand by you every step of the way with encouraging words and proper motivation, Ronnie is it. Her style is such that it motivates me to push myself without feeling forced to. I truly get the most out of my workouts nowadays. I have Ronnie to thank for reigniting my love and value of exercise. Kudos to her.

Meghan is a powerhouse - a true professional! She walks her talk by staying fit, healthy and progressive in the best practice methods available. Although I am a certified health and wellness coach, she added depth to what I know. She provided great tasting recipes that were satisfying and easy to prepare. She also was my personal trainer and yoga coach. She pushed me beyond my comfort zone and helped me understand the true strength of my body. If one makes the commitment to stay dedicated to her program, tremendous health and fitness will be the reward - I highly recommend Meghan!

It's been a while since we had personal trainers, so there was a bit of a 'gulp' factor when taking the plunge once again. We never looked back - Sandy is awesome! Not only is she prompt and professional, but she makes working out really fun! She is open to suggestions, keeps every session fresh with a wide variety of exercises and adapts to your physical limitations. And...she also travels to your home, which is a major convenience factor. If you are thinking about bringing a personal trainer to your routines, Sandy is a brilliant choice - you'll be so glad you did!!

Phil is the perfect trainer if you're looking for someone who: Focuses on fitness and health as well as looking good. Is excellent at assessing the best workout for you according to what you want. Is a positive motivator. Has a great sense of humor and at the same time is professional and conscientious. I've had several trainers over the years. When my friend asked me if I wanted to train with Phil I was hesitant. Being a trained massage therapist and reflexologist, I'm educated in anatomy and physiology. I have found a lot of personal trainers to not be so well rounded in the whole aspect of fitness. I was impressed with Phil. My body is shaping up quickly and I always enjoy the workouts. Do yourself a favor and check him out.

She's the best! She's my first ever personal trainer, and I have nothing to complain about. I love working out with her. I was very unhealthy when I began to train with her, and now I can finish a session without feeling sick! I love how she motivates me to push, and she truly cares about me.

During these past 4 years Charlie's exceptional training program has kicked the late middle age out of my body and given me a second shot at 40. I've never felt better physically, mentally, and maybe even spiritually. Now that's a top PERSONAL trainer for someone (me) closer to 60 than to 50. Paul D.

Allen is one of the best trainers ever. He is very professional and cares about his clients. I have been working out with him for a little longer than a year and it has been awesome. I am currently pregnant and I know he will help me get back on track after having the baby!! If you are looking for a personal trainer he is your go to person, he tries to be flexible with your schedules to meet your needs and his prices are very reasonable!!

Lee is an absolutely fantastic trainer! I am one of those people who starts something and quits pretty quickly. I had a baby and was in the worst shape of my life. I was nervous about getting a personal trainer for fear of being judged, not being able to keep up with the work outs, or the age old fear that nothing would change and I'd be stuck the way I am. Lee changed all that for me. Our first session he was easy on me, but still pushed me to do a much as I could. Then we built from there. He encouraged me to not only work out, but change my eating habits for a healthier lifestyle. He was always respectful and got to know me. He figured out just how far he could push me. As a married woman, I appreciated that he asked about my husband and never made me feel uncomfortable. I began feeling better and more confident in myself and my abilities. The only bad part about Lee is that he can't make the 4 hour commute to Memphis to continue training me! Seriously though, extremely professional guy who is dedicated to getting you to where you want to be and helping you to see that you can go further! I highly recommend him to train you no matter what stage you are at in your fitness.

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.

I highly recommend Luis as your personal trainer. I am a female who has worked out with him for over a year now. He promised me I wouldn't 'bulk' up, but rather slim down and get more toned. He was correct! I am down several sizes and still going. The personal one-on-one training is great and his positive attitude keeps me coming back for more!

Donna has been my personal trainer for about five years. It's the best investment I've ever made in health an well-being! This month was my 83rd birthday, and I've never felt more fit, flexible, or strong. She pays close attention to my particular needs and abilities, and is always concerned with safety. The gym is small, friendly, and devoted to personal training.

I've been training with Hiram for over a year, he's very professional and knows his stuff. Most trainers I've encountered are always just about the money, Hiram cares about his clients and wants to see you obtain your goals. He goes hard but it's worth it, I consider Hiram a friend now and wouldn't train with anyone else! Hire him if you wanna see results!!!!!
