Latest Review: Recommendation for personal trainer: Ron Gordon.
Over the last 2 months, Ron has been a great personal trainer for the following reasons:
1). First, Ron is a great listener, and he listens carefully to both what you say *and* what your body says. He is uncommonly good in this regard.
2). Ron is very thoughtful with his approach, based on what he hears as your goals and based on how he assesses your current strengths. He is not a "one size fits all" kind of guy, but he does have a general approach to training that has worked for him over the years, which includes a heavy emphasis on form and technique to avoid injury and optimize longer-term performance. His respect for and focus on technique was particularly important to me.
3). Ron brings a lot to the table, given his extensive experience with triathlons, marathons and distance hiking. His reference base here is impressive which helps to differentiate him amongst other trainers.
4). Ron is always on time, to the dot, and he is very well organized and process driven. That said, he is paradoxically flexible if schedules, goals or times change.
Overall, if you have exercise and/or physical goals you'd like to accomplish, Ron is a great guy to help you get there and you should at least give him a try. Alex
