I was very pleased with the sessions with John Peters. He was inspiring, professional, invested and also had a good sense of humor. I'm a very shy person at the gym, he was very helpful in helping me relax and get over that a bit. Highly recommend!
I've trained with Christian since 2010. He has helped me to prepare for 2 bodybuilding competitions (1st place and then 3rd place at pro level). It was his motivation and excellent training techniques that got me there. Christian is great at goal setting and getting you to the most direct path to that goal. He has worked with both athletes and anyone who just wants to get into better physical shape. Christian is not like the average personal trainer that you see at the big box clubs---he is an awesome coach who loves what he does and can share his wealth of knowledge of fitness. I can't imagine a better partner for your fitness goals.
When Erik says hes dedicated to your health he means it. He runs a first class studio with only the best trainers who are passionate about health and wellness. They truly invest in their clients. They offer knowledge, wisdom and expertise regarding fitness and nutrition. They provide priceless encouragement and endless accountability to help keep you on track and the workouts are never the same. There are nutrition seminars to help you tackle the nutrition battle, specialized fitness seminars that equip you to be successful on your own, frequent fitness tips that offer a new twist to a workout, and plenty of motivation along the way. I have far exceeded my weight loss and fitness goals and am getting stronger and faster as I get older. That would not be happening on my own. Working with Erik and his Puravida trainers has transformed my life!
Jessica is an amazing trainer. When I began training with Jess almost 3 years ago I was a year out from having twins. I learned early on from Jess that that inches come off faster than the pounds. After 4 months I was down 10lbs and that didn't seem like a lot but I lost 27inches and went from a size 12 to a size 6. With monthly measurements you can see and feel that you are achieving a goal and that building muscle does not mean bulking up if done right! As time progressed and I built more muscle, literally one day the pounds just flew off (20+ lbs lost). I stated when we met that I would never be able to do a sit up. I have since blown that out of the water and run numerous 5k's, 10k's, and 3 half marathons! The last being Big Sur, my dream! I also had a very high and erratic heart rate. After 3 years my heart rate has improved and is 30-40 beats lower while running. I now understand the need for a personal trainer. She pushes me beyond what I would make myself do. However, Jess will also listen as I have chronic IT Band issues. She understands when I say that I need to back down on something (as I never back down). Jess is an amazing trainer who will teach you new things about yourself and introduce you to new workouts you may not think of (TRX, Yoga, Boxing, how to use paper plates in a workout if you don't have equipment). She is truly amazing and most importantly we work as a team to achieve goals together! It speaks volumes that now my mother has come to understand why I use a trainer. My mother has now taken up strength training and yoga with Jess at the age of 62!
Dane trained me 18 months 2x weekly until the gym went out of business. Now am lifting on my own at another gym, not getting gains with the speed which I had been but still learning to work out on my own. The muscular base I build with Dane makes that possible and fun. The GOOD: -knows how to push but not injure a 50 year old client -expert at getting the most results for the time you put in and making it interesting by mixing things up -extraordinarily calculating and strategic: Let Dane know your goals and constraints (e.g. gain muscle but have a sore shoulder) and he will react with speed and skill to get you there -great physiological understand (gave me an expert eval on my shoulder soreness confirming no tear and proscribed exercises to strengthen lower traps and re-balance the muscles with good success) The BAD: -knows how to push you without injury, but still one time I had to take advil within 2 hours of blasting my legs with high volume squats. Once he builds you up to safely push you, you will discover what SORE feels like (even that is addicting) -you have to find supplementary instructional videos on your own as the focus is on maximizing the training session for results now (not focusing on how you will branch out later on your own). I have discovered insightful youtube weightlifting videos on how to bench press by Art of Manliness (Rippetoe) and Alan Thrall that I think are helpful additions to the Dane's coaching. SUMMARY: Encouraging, challenging, keeps you from hurting yourself while still getting you addicting to moving heavy weights and the exercise "high" you get by moving out of your comfort zone. Results, professionalism, and a little fear (that your heart will explode). I did things I thought I was way to old too do, and am still benefiting from it. I couldn't recommend Dane more highly.
Before I saw Brandt I was frustrated with the lack of progress I was making in standing due to being an amputee. Now I go to PT once a month and Pt says to keep seeing the trainer. I get a great workout with weights, boxing, bands, medicine balls.Upper body strength increased, weight decreased. Brandt great sense of humor. He helps with self esteem.
Eric is an exceptional trainer. He is attentive and engaged with his clients. He also understands his clients needs and goals and works to accommodate both, unlike most big box chain gyms.
NEVER BORING...With kettle bells, medicine balls, bosu ball, bands, agility ladder, boxing gloves and pads etc...Dr. Backlund makes each workout different and creative every time.
I met Maurice years ago at a gym where he was personal trainer as I was incorrectly using the machines he came over and introduced himself and showed me proper mechanics so I concluded to buy training package with him because I had fitness goals and 1 was to tone my arms for my sister graduation. To make long story short I went to Atl with the best looking arms I ever had!! I appreciate the knowledge Maurice has in health and wellness. Thanks Maurice
My experience with Amy is in relations to Pink Gloves Boxing. Amy does an amazing job leading the Pink Gloves Boxing training. Not only do you get a great workout you also learn proper boxing technique. Amy is a great trainer!
Brian really cares for each individual client. I was working out, but struggling with weight loss. Brian looked for other ways to up my progress. I now record my food daily and send my results off to Brian each night. If I miss a day, I get an email from Brian, to keep me accountable and on track. You are not going to get that from other gyms and trainers.
This is the first time I have used a trainer of any sort and I wasn't sure what to expect. Jon has been great at listening to me, helping me make goals I can achieve, and teaching me new exercises. I LOVE working with him. Worth every penny. (:

Abby is a phenomenal trainer! She has a wide variety of experience in boxing, kickboxing, weightlifting, bootcamps, and knows how to help you reach your personal fitness goals one-on-one! She is motivating, fun, and an all-around genuine person!
Seth is very knowledgeable in the many facets that make up fitness and nutrition. In the 4 sessions I have had with him I have learned a lot. He helped me establish a routine for the 3 days per week that I go to the gym. The routine has proven to be quite beneficial to my priorities of gaining strength and mass. His method of explaining the proper way to exercise is very straight forward and easy to understand. Another great aspect about a good trainer is a good personality and Seth has that too. All around great trainer that deserves a 5 star rating!!
Very happy to support this organization. I have been taking Thai Boxing and self defense lessons here for several years, and just recently added some work with their personal trainers. All I can really say is - it works. The activities are engaging and have kept me going for several years in a healthy lifestyle. Down over 80 pounds since working with them, and feeling healthier than I did in my college days (I'm 29 now). Thanks MKG!
boxing and circuit training is huge when talk about getting into shape also eating health.
