Gerard is the trainer of trainers, he has stamina, strength, and balance in training me. I am older, and I need to be watched for my strengths and weaknesses. He knows nutrition as well, and combines the training with that skill, which makes him exceptional. He's tough and clear about body building.
I have worked with John for almost a year now. Over the course of the year I’ve been more than pleased with the service, not only was the system very structured punctual and professional, but I’ve had more results than ever before. John/fast pace PT is the third personal training service I have used, after having two other personal trainers. Structured system compared to traditional personal training is much more effective and I have appreciated all of John’s, and his team is hard work . I look forward to more training and even more results to come. Eli
Felipe is my first personal trainer ever, and it's been an amazing experience for me so far. I've never been a workout person at all before, so I was a bit concerned about my ability to stay focused and motivated. But Felipe's approach works great for keeping me motivated. For one thing, he's about more than just counting reps. He always makes sure to explain why he's added a particular exercise to my routine and what I can expect to get out of it. Which is good, because when your biceps are burning and your knees are crying out in agony - and that is going to happen, it's just part of the whole personal trainer experience - it's a lot easier to keep going when you understand why you're doing it in the first place. More than that, I've seen definite improvements in both how I look and how I feel since I've been going to Felipe, and it's only been a few months. He's also a great guy who defies the stereotype of personal trainers who motivate their clients by making them feel bad about themselves. Felipe doesn't work like that at all, and if you're looking for a personal trainer on the Peninsula (San Mateo), I'm telling you, he's your guy.
James has trained me and several of my teammates in wrestling and MMA. I've watched all of us make jumps in skill level in his class. James is a patient and effective teacher. He is a trainer you want if you're after detailed, personal attention. His monumental patience can be seen in his teaching me wrestling. Over a year, he brought me from a sad, landlubbering state to a less sad state where I can execute wrestling fundamentals. Improvement was incremental, and he was always encouraging and made training engaging. He is also an excellent dancer.
Dario is the best trainer I have had. He always comes up with new workouts that challenge both my body and mind. I love the endurance workouts where he sets me a time challenge to beat (I always get a great night's sleep after those workouts!). The workouts are really varied from cross-fit, to Olympic weightlifting, to boxing, to plyometrics, to agility circuits. Because of this attention to providing new and challenging workouts I believe Dario is one of the best trainers out there.
I've always been active and fit. I've studied martial arts for over 10 years and have trained competitively for full contact San shou kickboxing matches, judo tournaments and Kung Fu forms competitions. I'm used to sweating it out and tough coaches. After a string of injuries, work priorities and age on my bones, I was feeling demotivated, lazy and really out of shape. I decided that I needed a kick-start and a switch up to my routine so I started training with Daniel. And he is awesome. His background in kinesiology allowed me to train hard while rehabilitating a lingering hip injury. He taught me a ton in areas where I haven't had much experience but wanted to learn, like strength training with weights and isometric training. And he always kept it fresh and fun. My favorite was going out to the field and doing killer coordination drills. Daniel definitely makes you put in the work but he's friendly and motivating and we built a great relationship during our training time together. What was supposed to be a short jump start package for me turned into a long term must have element to my routine. I'm sad he moved away but his choice to continue his education in grad school is going to make him even more effective as a personal trainer. Daniel rocks!
Laurie has been my trainer for over ten years. Her positive attitude toward life always makes me feel good. She knows the body, and when I have had an injury, she suggests a safe way to continue exercising without causing further problems. She is a professional with years of experience as a trainer. I am 74, with good balance. I feel strong with lots of energy. Part of that is definitely having Laurie in my life.
Shakina is personable, knowledgeable, extremely flexible with when and where to workout, super friendly...and best of all, she gives me the results I want! She tailors my workout to my ability while still making it challenging. I started with her 3.5 months after I had a baby (3 days a week for 30 min sessions) I couldn't do a single push up, could barely jump rope, and lunges were a challenge. Just 2 months later I see definition both in my arms and back, my baby belly is shrinking (though this is always the last to go), my husband continuously compliments me on my tight butt, and I've progressed INCREDIBLY in my ability to complete the tasks I've mentioned above. I look forward to seeing my body continue to transform with Shakina and highly recommended her for both personal and group training!
I started training with Nate in the typical fashion – about 2 months before my wedding. I hadn’t worked with a trainer before as motivation to get to the gym has never been an issue for me. Tennis, running, spinning – lots of cardio plus a weekly tennis game was plenty to keep me feeling good mentally, able to eat & drink what I wanted, and to generally be happy with how I looked. But, as one does before their wedding – I decided to try something new. I was immediately hooked. Nate made strength training fun – it wasn’t just a run through various machines on the strength deck or run of the mill free weight exercises. He had me flipping tires, throwing down medicine balls, swinging kettle bells, pushing sleds, jumping on boxes and running stairs. Of course, when it came time to use those traditional machines or free weights, there was some sort of twist to keep it fresh. Without a doubt – my body changed – for the first time in my life, my abs had great definition and I found that I needed to log less cardio time as in truth, ti get the the psychic benefits of cardio work within a good half hour. I kept training with Nate after my wedding and through my first pregnancy. We adjusted the work outs as time went on and followed the rule of not adding anything new. I felt great throughout and was still running (or at least waddling) through my 8th month. I had a very easy time losing the pregnancy weight and I’m certain it was because I stayed fit and active through those 9 months. Though Nate left New York for sunnier pastures on the West Coast, we’ve kept in touch and I’ve been lucky enough to squeeze in workouts with him when I’ve traveled to San Francisco and LA.
I have really enjoyed training with Nick in my home. And thanks to Stella's excellent care for my children, I can concentrate on my workouts and really make each session count! Over the years I have worked with trainers at various gyms on the peninsula (Equinox, Gold's and Crunch) and I have felt most comfortable with Nick. Every session is tough but do-able because he's tailored it perfectly to my abilities. Nick's everything you need in a trainer (knowledgable, effective, firm, focused) while remaining patient and kind. His support really encouraged me during our sessions and motivated me to work hard on days that I exercised on my own. I am so pleased with my experience with Palladino Play and Train and recommend them wholeheartedly!
I met with Elyse at her gym, Perpetual Motion Performance Training, in an easily accessible and nice area of Walnut Creek. The gym itself is well equipped with ample floor space, full wall mirrors, plenty of weights, and all sorts of other fitness equipment (even a giant tire!) needed for the full-body workouts they provide in both personal training and group classes. My training experience with Elyse was excellent! Her easy-going and encouraging attitude coupled with her knowledge and experience makes for an enjoyable and effective work out. She is incredibly good with recognizing ability levels and takes care to create and adjust her instruction to ensure your body is challenged, but not damaged, during your session. I highly recommend Elyse for personal training, whether experienced in fitness, or just starting out and afraid to take the jump, she'll get you going and help you achieve your fitness goals. 2 thumbs WAY UP!
I came across Barroga Fit through yelp. I had an aggressive goal for sometime and I tried multiple trainers, but it still wasn't what I thought I was looking for. Until, I did an assessment with Ana. The way she spoke about my goals like it was her own and how she guided me on how to get my 20 lbs weight loss goal was all the things I never got from the other trainers. Ana helped me with my 20 lbs weight loss goal and kept pushing me to do things that I never thought I would ever be able to do. Because of her I have completed 2 5k runs.
It was a pleasure working with Anthony. He was my personal trainer. He is a great guy and very knowledgeable about fitness training, nutrition, and healthy living in general.
San Jose Adventure Boot Camp has something for everyone. Whether you are slow and slumpy like me or fit and fine like many of my fellow campers, you WILL get a great workout and have a good time, too! Brett is an awesome trainer. Most trainers can give you a bunch of exercises to do, but Brett manages to challenge, encourage and entertain us all at once. It's cool to be able to get your butt kicked and laugh at the same time! I was so anxiety-ridden about starting this camp, I was pushing 50, always been out of shape, and never really exercised before, but from the first day I was there I was comfortable and felt good about being there. It's been almost a year now, and I am still showing up. When are you going to sign up? .
John challenged me to work harder, encouraged me and gave me the tools to try things that I didn't think I could do (box jumps!) and helped me realize that I had the capacity to succeed...and he made my workouts fun!
Steve was born to train. Throughout my life, it was always a challenge for me to stick with a particular discipline - and I rarely did. Presently, I've been training with Steve approximately a year and a half. I not only find it easy to commit to the training, I honestly look forward to it. Steve inherently knows what works successfully for one person, may not for another. For me, he knew the key was to tailor my workouts to suit my personality. We consistently changed my routines and environment. I love the outdoors, so we took our cross-training to beautiful trails, parks, and beaches. An association with what I most enjoyed was now defined with exercise - and it made all the difference. Steve is naturally gifted to build from the inside out. He'll educate not only on a physical level, but also an emotional one - getting the results at his client's pace. Above all, Steve exercises loyalty to see you through to your desired goal, and I'm soon to reach mine.
I finally found a form of fitness that keeps me motivated, is never exactly the same, and brings me outdoors for much of the training! Luis at FitHab changed my outlook on fitness. I gave up on gyms because the monotony of machines and indoor fitness classes were not enjoyable--boring. But Luis runs his sessions on trails and in parks! He is a "fitness scientist" as he teaches clients the proper way to safely and naturally move while climbing rocks, trees, and hills! My workouts with FitHab are challenging, ever-changing, and always motivating to want more. I can't fully describe the experience in words---just trust that this 48 year old, who almost gave up on ever getting healthy, actually LOVES a good workout on the trails with Luis!
I am so pleased with my experience training with Samantha. I have tried working with other personal trainers before. Not only do I see much more results in a shorter period of time with Samantha, but she keeps the workout interesting and new. She is also the sweetest and most professional trainer I have worked with. Whether you want to up your workout or are in need of some motivation, I highly recommend Samantha.
My experience training with Tony has been progressing very well within the past month, his strength when it comes to being my personal trainer is really understanding anatomy and where you need most improvement on as an individual. He watches you very closely and ensures you get the most out of every workout by adding on high-intensity training and bringing new equipment every week. Boxing, climbing stairs, running outside at the park when the weather is nice, and jumping rope were some of the highlights for me. Highly recommend, and I hope if you're in the Bay Area you will get a chance to workout with him too!!
I have been training at Pellarin Performance twice a week for a few months, and I couldn't recommend it more. I already see the results, I got back in the shape I once had before starting an office job. At Pellarin Performance, John will listen to your personal objectives and design a training program tailored to your physical goals. There are plenty of interesting workout equipment (kettlebells, ropes, jumping boxes, power sled, and even big truck tires) which are integrated into every workout session to make it unique and so much more efficient than at a basic gym. The workout area as well as the bathroom and shower are very clean, and the gym is well located in Redwood City and easily reachable.
Fiona Cantando has over 5 years of experience in vertical jump exercises. This pro has gained several positive jump workout reviews from clients.
I trained with Nate for about a year and the results I saw I never knew were possible. He put an incredible amount of thought into every session to ensure each workout was different, challenging yet doable and most importantly, fun (at least as fun as working out can be). Nate always held me accountable to ensure I met and exceeded my goals. One of things that makes him stand out among other trainers is his keen knowledge and understanding of kinesiology. He's able to develop customized fitness plans for every individual client no matter their goals, age or experience. Nate is an incredible trainer, one of the best, and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
