My experience with MarkShane and his group of professional trainers has been one that will last a long time in my mind and heart. The staff is curtious, kind and know their job well. I tried losing weight on my own with no success, but after coming here I emedietly lost weight and became a new person. I would recomend them to family and friends and anyone seeking professional help in weight loss training and healthy nutritional guidance.
Bo is type of trainer that push clients to be faster and stronger. He creates workout goals with client base on their fitness level, but at the same time building client's endurance. He also cares about client's nutrition, making recommendations to improve client's diet. His boot camp work out classes priced very reasonable, so I highly recommend to anyone.
When asked about doing the Sifu Challenge... Working out at 5am, 6 days a week, for 8 weeks... the first red flag was 5 AM!!!! I wanted it to be at another time, but then I started thinking "What time would be better?" 6am to 7am, I would have a conflict about 2 days a week. 5pm? I would have a conflict 4 days a week. 5 AM!, I had no conflict, except sleep, and it was way to early to commit. My second thought was imagining what my life would be like without doing the challenge, or with doing the challenge. Without doing the challenge, though I was in what was considered good shape, I wanted to tone up, loose a few pounds, and increase endurance. Being an actor, there is a big difference between being "in shape", and being camera ready in shape. The Sifu Challenge, is what I needed to align with my goals. Looking at my life without the course, nothing would change, I would still have my complaints and unfulfilled goals, and aspirations. With the course I would be in line with how I see myself, and could reach my goals in a short period of time. 5 am, would mean I needed to be up, 3 1/2 hours after going to bed. I made the decision, a no brainer, to join the Challenge, and once that was made, the rest was awesome. There is something very empowering about getting up at 4:25am just for yourself, driving to the school just for yourself, and having a workout session set up and designed just for you, with other people set out to accomplish the same goal. It's like a portal opening up in the universe, for your physical transformation, that then vanishes at 6:15am. We all arrive, workout, and leave in an hour. Sifu pushes you, somewhat, but it really is up to you to push yourself. Results will come with minimal effort, but real breakthroughs come with challenging yourself to make tomorrows reps more than today. Its easy to see results in the melting and sculpting of your body, but it is difficult to know the results strength wise, as you are increasing the number of reps you are doing... i.e. in 2 min. if you do 20 bench presses, of light weight the first week, and you are doing 40 the second with slightly more weight, you still reach a point where you can't do more, and the number what ever it is... is just a number. Muscle confusion, the "Swallow challenge", cardio, and friends. No matter where you are now, out of shape, "in shape", weak or strong... you need to take the challenge! I did, and my life has altered. I just turned 45, and I can honestly say I have more strength, endurance, and physical fitness, then I ever have. I joined the 200 pound bench club, have tons more energy, and can literally feel my body burning at a higher level. sifuferreira.com R C Jones
Lauren and her team are amazing! We hired LA Fit Life as part of our Wellness Month at our law firm. The program exceeded our expectations! We had nutritional seminars, boot camps, and a variety of other fitness classes. Everything was geared for all levels and the reviews I received from our staff and attorneys was fantastic. The professionalism, experience, and execution of the month long program was perfect in every way. Thank you Lauren, and I hope to work with you again!
It's awesome working with Peggy at Fit by Design! I especially loved her boot camp classes and the way she motivated us all at the crack of dawn- she made it fun and challenging so you can definitely feel great after an incredible workout!
My experience has been like no other when it comes to fitness!! I have a long road ahead of me with my weight loss goals, but I couldn't imagine this journey with any other trainer...his knowledge of the body and what it takes to achieve the lifestyle I need is amazing!!! This trainer practices what he teaches and understands from first hand knowledge because he treats his body like a temple. I know we all can not look perfect but he's the guy to help you be the best you can be for yourself. Jessie is the total package...great trainer and overall an awesome guy!!! If I could give more stars I would...I'm only 3 weeks in and he's changed my life already!! I feel great and I look forward to working out...I never thought I would have that attitude about fitness :) if you choose Jessie, be ready for the best decision ever!! Good luck to everyone who reads this review, Cindee S
I am a current EBC Camper that falls into the obese category. I am just keeping it real. Many believe that they are not capable of doing a boot camp style workout. I am here to tell you that with EBC its possible and results will come with consistency and persistence. My EBC journey began at the end of July 2014. At the start of camp, I weighed in at 283lbs. I was insulin resistant and pre-diabetic. I had high blood pressure and I was physically miserable from being so out of shape. I am pleased to tell you that through amazing coaching and guidance from Monique and Sean Patton, and other supportive campers, I have transformed my body, my lifestyle and my overall wellbeing. I have lost 60lbs. of fat; my diet is clean and all my pressures/numbers fall within the normal range. My EBC journey continues! I look forward to our sessions and being challenged as well as my continued transformation.
Elle is helping me with overall fitness. She leads our boot camp execise grp and is always willing to customize a workout to the individual pace. She motivates me and makes every work out a fun experience.
Angie is our fitness trainer at the San Diego Tech Center and teaches classes ranging Core Strength, High Intensity Interval Training, Strength Training to Boot Camp. She makes classes fun, keeps pushing us push our limits, switches things up if she senses we are plateauing. She is very friendly and extremely approachable, be it advising on specific personalized exercises, diet, injuries, or just general health. Just by attending her classes, I can lift heavier at the gym. My flexibility, core strength and endurance have all significantly improved. This helps me tremendously while playing those long league level tennis matches. I have also been injury free, since her workouts target all major and minor muscle groups. Thank you Angie, for all that you have done!
Goat Fitness has been one of the best things I have ever done. Like most women I know I struggle with my weight. I am small person ( 5 feet tall) so I feel like my weight goes up and down a lot. I have done diets and boot camps and everything worked for like 2 weeks but, I never really achieved the results I was looking for. I would loose like 5 lbs and stop losing weight. Not to mention I couldn't eat anything I wanted and the work outs were ridiculous. Lucky for me one of the girls I work with goes to Goat and she looks amazing and all she did was talk about how great this gym is. There are those people who LOVE working out .... I am not one of them and I don't understand the people (like my friend) who are super into it. But.... she looks great and she told me her trainer said she can have a bagel and cream cheese. That got my attention!!! Every work-out/ trainer I have ever seen has told me that I basically have to cut out everything I love to eat which for me is wine and cheese which sucks so I do it for 2 weeks then I stop losing weight and say screw it back to eating what I want. There is another way!!!! So I decided to go see this amazing trainer that allows you to eat foods you actually like. Lets just start with everyone at the gym is incredibly nice. I talked with Jon and he talked about getting the results I wanted and how to reasonably achieve them. He was honest and up front this isn't the place where you drop 20 lbs in a month first that isn't healthy and it typically doesn't taste or feel good. He explained that what I was looking for would yes take time but, we could certainly get there in a few months. I don't have ridiculous goals I just want skinny girl arms and to fit into a pair of pants like the average woman. I appreciated Jon's realistic approach to weight lost. We did all my measurements and he built me work outs that would help me get to where I wanted. Another great thing you can pick different packages so I picked the 30 minute training ones. I have never been so happy to work out. The work outs are definitely changeling but, they don't kill you ( you will be sore though) but, its over super fast! Back to the food because when I think weight loss I typically go to great well I can't eat this or this or.... and it goes on. I can have my wine and my cheese!! We set up my macros to show me I need this many: Carbs, Fats, and Proteins. I can eat those anyway I want!!! If I want to have wine that is fine I just need to make sure it fits into my macros. The trick is if I know I am going to have a glass of wine later its the first thing I put in my phone so I know I am having it and I see what else I have the rest of the day so I get my wine! This fits into my life which is more important to me. I work 2 jobs and don't have a ton of extra time. Most importantly they care they really do and they are very flexible. I am happy to say .... I fit the pants .... and I have wine & cheese :)
Jon created a comprehensive program tailored to my needs. I feel better, look better, & am getting close to my weight loss goal.
Vanessa is a great coach who offers a wealth of knowledge in fitness and weight loss. As a client she kept me motivated by giving me different workouts that were fun, taught me about which muscle groups I was working out and how to stretch properly. Vanessa offered insight into how to eat healthy to help me stick to my weight loss goals. Vanessa is very personable and professional. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to start working out again and doesn't want the intimidation of a big box gym. Vanessa is also able to train athletes that are looking for a change in their workout routine. Give Vanessa a try and get ready for a great workout!
My son has been frequenting a boot-camp at his school and also attending class with Bryan on Saturdays. I have definitely seen a difference in his stamina, coordination and weight loss. Bryan is patient with the kids and helps motivate them with positive words and encouragement. He inspires my son to do his best and come to class. He gives a workout that is adaptable for the level that they are at as kids but also adjusts it if there are adults in the group. I recommend this class to all.
I have been training with Morgan for almost 5 months now. Her boot camps are fun and challenging and have really whipped me into shape! I'll be 40 next month and have never felt better!
I've had the privilege to train with Quinn as a personal trainer and to attend some of his boot-camp style classes. I am a well-trained endurance cyclist and I teach indoor cycle classes. Quinn structured my workouts to focus on body parts I didn't use cycling, and he challenged me without being a jerk. I have a masters degree in Exercise Physiology, so I know my stuff. Yet each session, Quinn surprised me and made me stronger. Some women in my cycle classes even asked me how I got my arms to look so good! I love his can-do, no bullying style. If you want real results, go with Quinn. Your time and money will be well spent!
I have worked with Jaimie for over a year with individual personal training sessions to help me achieve my fitness goals. She helped me lose body fat, increase muscle strength and drop some unwanted pounds. As a client, I felt that Jaimie went over and beyond what a personal trainer is supposed to do- she encouraged me to try different activities, like boot camp & spin classes. She would help me with areas in my life that were keeping me from achieving my goals. She would check in with me constantly to make sure that I was staying on target with my goals. Jaimie is positive, caring and will help you achieve any of your personal fitness/nutrition goals.
I have been working with Rob Lamb for nearly a year, and the one thing that I world tell any of his potential clients. Rob has a habit of giving you more then you pay for. He's not a clock watcher and will take the time make sure you get a great workout. If you belong to a gym, have a home gym, or no gym access at all he will tailor your workout and give you recommendations on what you should be doing between sessions with him. He also runs a free weekend boot camp for his clients and any guests that would like to try out his service. It's rare that I'd give any business a 5 star rating but I can't think of anything negative about my experience.
The boot camps are so much fun and energetic I felt good after every work out. Lauren knows what she's doing and I can't wait to train with her again. I look forward to training with her again.
My health and fitness journey has been a long arduous process. I've hired several trainers before all of which I've felt weren't 100% commited to my goals (they wanted the money of course) which left me discouraged and unmotivated. When I found Crawford Boxing & Fitnesss my outlook completely changed. The owner/trainer, Vaughn Crawford, is the best personal trainer in the business. He is engaged and invested in your fitness journey. Each session is tailored to push me to be stronger (physically and mentally), have more endurance, and become leaner. Not one session has been the same and it NEVER gets boring. I've gone through circuit training, conditioning, boxing with pad drills, weight training, plyometric workouts, group workouts, boot camps and so much more. It's to the point that I've fallen in love with boxing. CBF offers different locations: beach, parks, boxing gym, etc., flexible hours (I'm a working professional and flexibility is important), and nutritional counseling. They offer web training or text workouts when you're traeing. The CBF clientele is so diverse: business owners, students, pro and amateur boxers & working professionals etc. but they have one common foundation: CBF and Vaughn has trained them to be the best and healthiest shape of their lives. Join the Crawford Boxing & Fitness Team - it's a game changer.
