Prior to working with JJ, my lifestyle wasn't very active. I knew i needed a personal trainer to help with my exercise routine, and JJ was the perfect guy. Since I started working with him 2 months ago, I am now definitely stronger, and he'll push you during training but still make it enjoyable. He also pointed out the things I needed to maintain during my off days, such as cardio. I definitely recommend him to help anyone who wants to start an active lifestyle.

Jonathan is the perfect personal trainer for busy professionals. He is patient, focused, supportive, professional, and educated. But he’s also hilarious and fun. I’m completely drenched in sweat after every workout, but always leave the gym in a calmer state of mind and feeling a lot better than when I walked in. I love working out with Jonathan and so will you!

AWESOME PERSONAL TRAINER!! I started working out with OJ in July 2016. I was kind of skeptical of a new personal trainer because of my bad experiences with other trainers, but OJ is very different. He wants to know your goals and definitely makes you put in the hard work to accomplish them. When I am scheduled to workout with OJ, that entire hour is totally focused on my health goals. He is very patient and encouraging and for once in my life, I don't dread working out. I actually enjoy the intensity of the work-outs and I have lost weight already. I am not where I want to be physically as of yet, but I have already seen improvements with my body and overall fitness level. What I do know is, if I stick with OJ, my goals will be accomplished in no time!! My advice for someone looking for a personal trainer, give OJ a try, you definitely won't regret it!!

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!

Being an athlete my entire life I have had many coaches, personal trainers, and workout experiences. The workouts OJ from One Body has designed to meet my workout goals have been extremely challenging and a perfect addition to my current workout regiment. I am impressed by his professionalism and consistent communication with me in order to assist me in reaching my goals.

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!

Hugo is hands down the best trainer! This is my first time ever having a personal trainer and I couldn't have picked a better one. In my first month I lost 18lbs!! Hugo is so nice and makes sure that before you perform any exercise he shows you the proper form to prevent injury. Included in his program was a personalized meal plan to suit your goal plans. I would definitely recommend anyone to train with Hugo!

I've had personal trainers in the past but none like Hugo. He is very professional, knowledgeable, and passionate about physical fitness. I have been training with him for approximately a year and have always had a positive outcome. I give my full recommendation to anyone looking to start their fitness journey with a true professional.

Hands down Jobi Morrison is the BEST personal trainer! I have been training with Jobi for 5 years. I'm the strongest I have ever been! My workouts are never boring. I always look forward to see how he will challenge me with cardio, strength and balance and I am never disappointed! Jobi always takes the time to listen to my questions about fitness and nutrition and always provides sound advice. I usually shy away from recommending people or businesses, but with Jobi and Fitness Comes First I say Go Now! You will NOT be disappointed!

I am currently working with Jobi. I haven't worked with a personal trainer before often thinking that they were somewhat over rated. However after meeting with Jobi and speaking with him about fitness goals I knew I found the right guy for the job. He does what he can in regards to scheduling and seeing what works best for you and truly puts his clients needs first. I am looking to the end result of my time with Jobi.

Jobi is an excellent personal trainer. He's nice, funny, and extremely knowledgeable. Arguably the most important aspect of him is that he will only push you as hard as you want to go. I never feel intimidated and I always get a good workout.

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.

5 out of 5 stars easily. Exceeded my expectations with just my first visit. Erwin is such a caring, professional trainer and custom tailors your workouts. I have been working out with Erwin for a little over a month now. My body has improved a thousand fold both physically and health-wise. Myself; I no longer suffer with constipation (I have had issues since I was 14 years old) weird phantom pains (I had for the last 5 years) or lack of strength (from years of not exercising). I have never worked out before, and working out has changed my life for the better. Erwin is the best. His expertise is extremely valuable. My own personal fitness goal is to be totally physically fit again and tone. With Erwin, I am on my way!

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.

I highly recommend Adrien as a personal trainer. He is consistent, motivates you, and I noticed results within the first month. I work with Adrien twice a week. I am currently towards the end of my second month and I am continuing to see results. I have more muscle, definition, and have lost inches. I have worked with personal trainers before and I have never had the results that I have had with Adrien. He changes the workouts every time so your body doesn't plateau. You want to work with him. You won't regret it :)

Looking for an experienced, family friendly, and highly supportive personal trainer that specializes in MMA? Look no further. I randomly found EJ while walking through my community (and coincidentally on thumbtack..small world!) and I saw him training a mother and daughter. After exchanging info and then researching him more on thumbtack and the web, I decided to start training with him. The rest is history. I've since focused on boxing and Muay Thai mainly for self-defense and the cardio, and it's been working out really well. My power, speed, and stamina has improved significantly. I'm even thinking about getting my daughter to sign up with him to train. Great coach and trainer. I couldn't ask for anything more.

Really enojoyed having EJ as my personal trainer. I was able to see the results that I wanted right away. He's very flexible with scheduling workout times, affordable, personable, encouraging and was able to give me a workout plan when I couldn't make training sessions or was out of town. He's also the kind of trainer that if you have an issue with something you can talk to him and he'll make the adjustment. I would definitely recommend.

I've tried a few different personal trainers at big gyms over the years, but none as great as Steve. He pushes you hard and motivates you in a positive way. He's a great conversationalist and every workout is different so it's never boring. Steve is knowledgeable about everything fitness related and customizes his plan for you -- even working through your diet and nutrition. One of the most important things that Steve does is always watches form to maximize results and prevent injury.

I want to let each of you know what my experience has been with Dan. I turn 59 this year and I have worked out with a number of trainers over the years. I call them counters because that’s all they did for me. They counted and I did all the work…no results! Then I met Dan in January of this year. I did the genetics testing as he recommended. Once I received the results he explained to me what the results meant and what I needed to do to get in better shape. From nutrition and cardio to weight training, he has guided me along the way. We started training three days a week. He taught me how to box as a cardio routine. Never thought I would get it, but with his patience and guidance I am now boxing and loving it… GREAT CARDIO!!! Weight training has been amazing! I have never seen results like this before!! His knowledge and understanding of the human body through nutrition and weight training is the most valuable information I have ever received. Thank you Dan for changing my body and life! Robert H.

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.

I have been training with Dimitri for a month, and I believe he is one of the most experienced and committed trainers I've ever met. He has continously helped me to achieve my goals and makes each session challenging but somehow still fun. My fitness has increased noticeably and i've seen improvements in my ability to do things I never thought i'd be able to and he pushes me to push myself harder I even look forward to our sesssions each day! - crazy!! I know! But most importantly :- 1. He monitors my form and technique to ensure that there are no injuries. 2. He is extremely reliable and punctual, always set up and ready for training ahead of call time.

I have worked with my share of trainers and by far Brian Kranz is the BEST! He begins your training with a 1 hour comprehensive assessment. Brian takes the time to know you, your body, your limits, and what you want to work on. After your assessment Brian schedules training based on you and your capabilities. I have been training with Brian for a couple of months and I have noticed a big difference in my strength. I can do regular push ups, my biceps and triceps have remarkable definition, and my abs are on their way to rock solid! Not to mention the additional overall strength I feel in my legs! If you are looking for a trainer who really takes the time to work on you - look no further than Brian Kranz and RED Fitness!

I sit at a computer all day for work, don't do much physical activity and have horrible posture and pain because of it. I got fed up with the pain so I decided to see a personal trainer. A friend of mine told me Brian is the best so I set up an appointment. He starts you out with a one-hour assessment to see what you need to work on and then you go from there. Within a couple weeks my back pain was so much better and I've been improving every week. I'm so glad I went to Brian and now I now why he's the best!

If you want to see results and enjoy working out at the same time, hire her as your personal trainer. Not only will you get results from her HIIT workouts (high intensity interval training), I guarantee she won't make you feel uncomfortable or feel like she is staring you down as you workout because she does the workout alongside you. It's great motivation to keep pushing through the workouts even when they get tough because she doesn't quit. She is extremely effective and she always keeps your goals in the forefront of her mind. You achieving the results you want is one of her main goals. Beyond seeing results, she wants you to enjoy your experience. She is great at catering to your needs as long as she is made aware of your circumstances. She knows how to properly challenge you so every workout feels totally worth it. You won't regret hiring her. If you want to see results, and have fun while working out, she is the trainer for you! I should know because I lost 25lbs in 2 months by doing her workouts weekly. I'm 5'6" and female. My starting weight was 160lbs and my end weight was 135lbs. I'd still be working out with her if we lived in the same state. Don't miss out on this amazing opportunity to workout alongside of this amazing trainer!

I love Beth! I talked to a few personal trainers when I started looking, and Beth immediately stood out heads above all the others. Beth did a physical assessment and then took the time to find out about me, my issues, my goals and needs. I have back issues, a bad hip - Beth created a plan specifically for me. I also have an issue with consistency - Beth understands and helps me - now I may miss a workout here or there - but I get right back on the wagon because Beth is there ready to help motivate me again. Which is great because I have gone years between work outs!!! I am so glad I met Beth and know that as a team I will meet my goals to strengthen my core and be fit and active as I move into my 60's.
