By training with Turk I find myself working harder than I thought I could, getting results I didnt know I could get, and wanting to do more. I hired Turk because of his expertise on both weight training and nutritional planning. I was looking to gain muscle, and have always been on the slender side so I knew I needed a trainer that would help me eat right as well. Our first session focused on designing a meal and workout plan tailored to help me reach my goals. Having grown up an athlete, I was no stranger to the gym. What I didnt realize is how many exercises I had been doing wrong all my life. Turk has taught me to use proper technique to maximize the results of the workouts. I have been working with Turk for 3 months, am already in better shape than ever, and have no intention of stopping now. Because of his encouragement and the progress he has help me make so far, I have gone from wanting to simply put on muscle to being motivated to train with him for next years NPC bikini competitions. I highly recommend Turk for anyone who is serious about working with a trainer for whatever your goals may be.
First off, it turned out that I actually knew Felton. My husband used to train with him and he was a friend of a friend. Felton will definitely help you get your fitness needs met. He will kick your butt with Cora activities and strength training. He also assist with nutrition planning and monitoring. He's an all-around good guy too.
The event was a plant based cooking class with 10 people preparing a Mexican dinner. Everyone took on at least 2 different dishes and we shared the meal at the end. It was a good group that interacted well with each other and we had a lot of fun. Emily cruised through the different stations answering questions and helping people with their dishes. She spoke with confidence and authority on nutritional facts and food preparation while keeping it light hearted and enjoyable.I would not hesitate a moment to take another one of her classes.
I was very satisfied and impressed with the level of expertise, acute knowledge, and passion that he has for his profession. Apart from his physical training, he is well versed in food nutrition, which in my opinion is a potent mix for anyone serious about fitness. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is willing to change and commit to a healthier lifestyle.
I very highly recommend Sage Holistic's Mimi as a nutritionist and lifestyle counselor to anyone who wants effective advice for healthy living improvements. She suggested practical recipes that I could prepare for my small family, gave specific nutrition advise applicable to my particular situation, and via regular meetings helped me stay on track with implementing her suggestions for improved sleep, lowered stress, and a sensible approach to weight reduction. She did all this with a smile on her face and a helpful, authentically caring attitude. I am continuing to rely on her help to boost my health and energy.
Alex is great. He offers the right amount of push to get you through your workout safely and successfully as well as knowledge on supplements and nutrition. He cares about your goals and is thoughtful on how you will accomplish them.
I first started training with Alex at West Coast Strength in 2013 after having my second child. In my initial consultation we just talked. He instantly put me at ease and asked about my goals, lifestyle and nutrition. Through our conversation, I felt like he really took the time to get a sense of who I was, and what I wanted to get from training. He took what I told him and used it to create a strength training program and nutrition plan specific to my needs. He did an amazing job of making my daunting goal seem achievable. Over the past four years I've watched him train hundreds of people, from high school athletes to elite bodybuilders to moms and older adults looking to lose weight and change their lifestyle. What is unique about Alex is his ability to connect people...he cares about each and every one of his clients and it shows through the enormous amount of time and energy he puts into helping them achieve their goals. He leads by example and lives the healthy lifestyle he and his business at West Coast Strength promote. My first meeting with Alex I remember him telling me that results wouldn't come overnight but if I could "put in the work and be patient" the results would come. Patience doesn't come easily to me, and initially I struggled with the concept. Since then I've come to realize he was right, and that his initial advice applies not only to my fitness, but to my life as well. Working with him the past few years changed my physique, but it has also made me mentally stronger. I would recommend him and West Coast Strength to anyone looking to make a similar life change.
I worked with Will on several occasions in terms of nutritional counseling and race preparation. Despite the potential disadvantages of a virtual coaching arrangement, Will made it possible through punctual communication via email, texts and google documents. He made the training fun and interesting. I plan on using his services in the future.
I feel blessed to know Marketa and to have her on my side to walk me through the huge nutritional changes in my life. Marketa actively listened to what I shared with her, carefully compiled all the information and put together a personalized food plan based on what she thought was best for me. I've been walking this road with her for 2 months now and I can already feel the positive changes happening in my body. She's not only available every day when I have questions, but she checks in with me regularly and provides ideas, tips how to improve my progress. She is truly a life changer to me!
The Back to Basics Nutritional Program is informal, relaxed and very professional. I would highly recommend them as the best place to start a journey to eating healthier, sleeping better and eliminating sugar from your diet like I did. Even lose some weight. Sharon S.
I've been working with Lucas for the past few months now--this is my first time using a personal trainer and I'm hooked. Lucas listens to my concerns not only with my body but with my appetite and catered a workout and meal plan according to my lifestyle. He started me off at a lighter pace but perfect for what my body needed to get accustomed to heavy lifting. He checks in with me every other day for an update to keep me on track. If I don't make it to the gym or have a cheat weekend, instead of making me feel worse about the situation, Lucas just motivates me to work harder. He guides me on what workouts I can benefit from most to make gains even if I have an off week. I can see changes and I feel changes and that to me, is what makes the pain and sweat worth it. But I wouldn't be able to keep the mentality and focus if it weren't for a coach like Lucas. He pushes me, challenges me to keep going and at this rate, I'm so excited to see where his training takes me.
There are so many counselors, healers, therapists, lifestyle gurus and professional advice-givers out there that it's easy to feel overwhelmed by all the choices. As a mother of three, I've spent who knows how much time and money looking for effective support for my family's health, only to find superficial, time consuming programs that may produce short-lived results (that require constant re-upping to maintain any effectiveness), but never really get to the heart of what we need. Nothing I've tried has come close to the kind of immediate, deep affect that working with Krista has provided. Her methods are so gentle and intuitive that it's hard to believe the powerful results. Within a week of our first hour-long session, my energy and sense of well-being were raised dramatically. I felt clearer and more confident in my body's ability to heal and was amazed when the results started reaching beyond the original issue for which I had sought her out. Five years later, I don't hesitate to turn to Krista first for all of my and my family's health questions, from nutrition to mental/emotional and relationship dilemmas. Her compassionate manner and truly holistic approach have given me the support I've needed to overcome blocks and reach my goals, without the confusing and often guilt-inducing yo-yo effect I've experienced with other practitioners. She understands that our lives aren't cookie-cutter and our issues aren't compartmentalized, and so is able to invest in the whole client and get to the actual root of a problem, instead of just temporarily easing the symptoms. If you've tried all the healthy living fads, diet programs, all the different therapies, alternative and conventional, and are still feeling stuck, please set up an appointment with Krista, and get ready for a breakthrough!
Rene is a fabulous coach! She brings a calm yet motivational presence to each session. I loved how Rene clearly listened to what I wanted to accomplish and helped me clarify a path forward. Her expertise in nutrition partnered with her coaching skills were an excellent match for my needs. I have been able to stay committed to my 3 month goals thanks to Rene, and I am so grateful for the results of our work together.
I trained with James and dropped 10 pounds and down to 8% body fat which is hard for a girl to get to . James steady and patient and focuses a lot on form. He wrote me an awesome nutrition plan that I wouldn't have been able to get from anywhere else. This guy is awesome!
I personally enjoy helping my customers achieve their results. I make them feel like home.
