Daniel was an excellent trainer, but more importantly a kind and reliable professional. He was very understanding and accommodating with sudden changes to my schedule. After working with him for a few weeks, I experienced increased strength and began to see changes to my body. I definitely recommend him to anyone who needs that extra push to achieve their fitness goal.Jan 23, 2017Verified
Daniel is extremely encouraging, yet patient. I know it's just the beginning of my journey with him as a coach but I could not be more excited about this work. Looking forward to adding another review after the next few weeks and/or months to talk about my progress.Nov 15, 2016Verified
I worked with a personal trainer for one year before moving to NYC. He's the first trainer I experienced here and I had one session with him. He did not show up for the scheduled 2nd session. Here are some additional facts. He showed up on time for the first session after a couple calls and texts to agree on time and cost. Overall, the session went OK with a couple areas can use improvement: 1. provide adequate protection. Especially given that it's the first session that he doesn't really know my strength level, providing protection when I lift weights overhead should be part of the trainer's job. 2. record performance. we performed about 10 exercises and I didn't see him record weight/repetition data. I decided to give me another try on the basis that he seemed to be a nice guy and he provided competitive rate. However, he did not show up at scheduled time. When I text him 15mins past appointment, he text back saying that he have a family emergency so he have to go out of town and he emailed me the previous night. When I mentioned that I received no email, he indicated "I sent it yesterday evening to the one you provided. It may have ended up in your spam, or wasn't delivered. But in any event, you should have your funds back." I doubled checked my spam folder and didn't see anything. People have family emergencies and it's totally fine to cancel sessions for that reason. However, all of our previous communications were via text or phone call. I only provided him my email (over the phone) for paypal billing purpose and have not had any email exchange with him. He choose email which he believe may "ended up in your spam, or wasn't delivered." after having left my voicemails and communicated via texts on multiple occasions. I'm only providing facts here and you can form your own judgement based on the information.Jan 9, 2017Verified
