I've been training with Mitch for only a few weeks now and he's been great! He does a great job with educating me about the workouts I'm doing, as well as my nutrition plan. He pushes me and makes the workout session feel fairly short (that's a plus for me!). I recently had a baby, so he's definitely helping me gain back muscle and lose excess weight...and doing so the right way!Mar 28, 2017Verified
I am super excited that I found Mitch! He is an awesome trainer, worth every minute and dollar! He is patient, pushes you, trains you just right then pushes a bit harder and the stretches are so good! Call him up, take a chance and you will agree. Looking forward to my progress. He does a full body and meal breakout and really shows you where you are, (no denial here) and where you need to get to. Super smart, engaging and easy to work with.May 25, 2016Verified
I started training with Mitch almost a month ago and I couldn't be happier with my experience with him. In this short period, I have noticed positive changes in both my body and in my energy. I came to him with a history of neck and shoulder pain which had previously prevented me physically and psychologically (fear of aggravating pain) from exercising. However, Mitch has been able to work around my injury and still help me reach my goals without flaring up any pain. In fact, my neck and shoulder have never felt better. In addition, he provided me with great information and instruction on nutrition. Mitch is highly experienced and extremely knowledgeable, and this shines through with every training session I have with him. I would highly recommend working with Mitch, especially if you have concerns about prior injuries that may be prohibiting you from getting back into shape. He definitely lives up to his title as "South Bay's Best Fitness Trainer".Feb 18, 2015Verified
I have been training with Mitch for the last few years and he is simply the best. I came to see Mitch after giving birth to my son in order to get back in shape. He has helped do that and more. I have always been athletic, but the transformation in my core strength, back, arms and legs is amazing. He knows how to motivate and challenge you to do more and different, but also tailors your workout to your specific needs. It is not surprising he has been voted one of the best in LA! Thank you Mitch!Dec 1, 2014
I've learned so much working with Mitch. I was already working out everyday on my own, but Mitch taught me so many new things and techniques. I've gained so much more muscle in the past couple weeks working with him, and have actually lost about 5 lbs. Not only did he work me hard, but he gave me the motivation to get stronger and faster. Thanks to Mitch I feel better and stronger!Jan 15, 2014Verified
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Over 50,000 training sessions in 28 years. I've helped thousands of clients get into better shape. I was voted South Bay's Best Personal Trainer and recently named “One of LA’s Top 5 Trainers” on the LA Hotlist! I began my career as a personal trainer at age 15. Since then, I studied Kinesiology and Physical Education, Nutrition, Exercise Physiology, Biomechanics, and Anatomy at CSU Long Beach, I've held 5 nationally accredited certifications (ACSM, NSCA, AFAA, NFPT), published hundreds of articles on nutrition and exercise, and I've been featured on SportsDesk, Torrance CitiCable, The Easy Reader, and The Daily Breeze. My clients include actors, fitness competitors, bodybuilders, firemen, police women, runners, tennis players, skiers, golfers, martial artists, doctors, lifeguards, yoga instructors, and even other certified personal trainers.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I've worked out regularly since I was 12 years old. I always loved lifting weights. At age 15, I applied for a job as a fitness instructor at a local YMCA, because I thought it would be a fun, low-stress after-school job, and for the FREE membership! By age 17, I realized that I could make a career out of it. But, I never dreamed I'd be so successful at it that I'd still be doing it in my 40s.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?First, you must decide precisely what your goals are. How much weight do you want to lose? What body parts do you want to tighten, tone, or strengthen? What injuries do you need to rehabilitate? Exactly what level of fitness you want to achieve? How much better you will feel when you achieve your goals? And how will you know when you've achieved your goals? Then decide how soon you'd like to achieve your goals. What's a realistic time frame to achieve your goals in? How important is it to you that you achieve your goals? And what will happen, or how will you feel if you DON'T achieve your goals? Finally, how committed are you to achieving your goal? How much time are you willing to devote to achieving your goal? How many days a week are you willing to train? What time of day will you devote to training? What days of the week? How much are you willing to change your eating habits and lifestyle? You should be able to answer most of these questions before starting a personal training program.
