I have known Terry for almost 4 years and he knows his stuff! He is incredibly knowledgeable about personal training and massage therapy. All trainers and massage therapists should understand how your body works like he does! I am in the best shape of my life thanks to Terry! 👍

Thomas is an excellent trainer and it was very evident from the get go that he is very passionate about what he does. I had initially contacted Thomas concerning my chronic knee problems and my desire to go back to high intensity, aggressive activities after my latest ACL reconstruction. From the moment I first contacted him, he showed he was very professional, open, compassionate and experienced. He is very good at encouraging, pushing and progressively challenging when needed in a careful, safe way but will also advise to back off and be patient when I’m not quite ready to safely do something while encouraging that I will eventually be able to do that activity when my body is ready. Thomas is very thorough he is consistently assessing and guiding progress as well as form from all angles during training sessions. He will make sure you understand how to and are fully capable of correctly performing an exercise unassisted, on your own before assigning it. He will check up on me if I don’t inform him how my body is doing after a newly intense training session also if I get very sore or if a body part gets injured or decides to act up and keep tabs on the progress. I was very impressed during some of our first interactions, how thorough he was in trying to gather as much background information and history as possible concerning the issues I had sought him for. This included past physical therapy visits, evaluations and exercises and relevant medical records. He tries to make himself available and is very willing to work with you and your schedule. He is very accessible and doesn’t mind when I would go to him outside of appointment time and will try to give the time necessary to help you with what you need and never makes you feel rushed or like you are bugging him. The same goes for texting; he would thoroughly and quickly answer his texts Thomas is a very good an knowledgeable resource, I often use him as a resource to check if my body is ready to safely do or start easing into an activity I want to do (like running or grappling) or if I need to be patient and wait a little longer and if I have questions about training, exercises, fitness, nutrition, etc.. He is open to questions at any time and will thoroughly explain his answers to make sure you understand It is quite evident that Thomas is the most interested in helping you to have a healthy body and to reach your fitness goals. He tries to make training as affordable as possible he would inform me of gym training package deals when they occur and tries to find ways to make the training package as affordable as possible. He often tries to work with you and your schedule and will move things around if need be to find a training schedule that works. His approach to training is very holistic and, although we focus on the knees as the main issue, he also helps to fix other imbalances or deficiencies that he or I might find through training. He also works to just to improve the whole body as a whole. He also advises on other elements that affect the body including on diet and nutrition to help make sure the body is getting the right amount and type of nutrients and energy it needs for it to be able to do what it needs to and give you the results you want. In the 6 months or so that I have actively trained with Thomas, I and several people around me have seen great improvement and positive changes. His he is very straight forward in a kind way and his training sessions are always very positive, challenging and fun.

I hired Isreal through Thumbtack and I honestly couldn't have found a better trainer! Isreal immediately made me feel comfortable at the gym and worked with me to find a stable training schedule. He is very flexible and will work with you as little or as often as you need. He's available for sessions at his gym or sessions at your home/local park, whatever works best for you! I started out training 2 times a week but have quickly changed that to 4+ times a week. He's just that awesome. He is passionate about your fitness goals and will develop a training schedule to target your individual needs. Our first session consisted of some fitness tests (how many jumping jacks/push ups can I do, how many crunches in a minute, how long can I hold my plank, etc...). This helped him identify where I was at, physically, and what kind of exercises we should focus on moving forward. He's worked with me to identify a weekly meal plan, as well. We frequently review what I'm eating and how certain types of foods are affecting my body. Isreal goes above and beyond to ensure you are meeting your fitness goals, no matter what level you are at. He's always on time and will always make you leave sore as heck! I truly and honestly could not rave about this guy any more. I've had many trainers in my day and never had someone care so much about my fitness. You will not be disappointed, I promise!

Jose's been a great trainer! He's helped me to develop very reachable goals and I've seen such great results. My body is a lot stronger and my body fat percentage has gone down. He's very helpful inside the gym and outside the gym. He's also quite knowledgable about diet issues and has been keeping me on track. Jose is pretty chill and I'd definitely recommend him. :D

During my quest to find the best trainer out there for my needs, I found Alex Hernandez. I knew from my research that the qualities I was looking for in a trainer included experience, education, personality, the ability to communicate well and professionalism. I met with/spoke to several trainers through Thumbtack and outside of Thumbtack that unfortunately were lacking one or more of these qualities until I met with Alex who, as it turned out, had all the qualities I was looking for in a trainer. It also didn’t hurt that he offered a couple of free sessions. (I know this is a rather wordy review but if you are like me and prefer to do your due diligence before hiring a trainer, I think it’s worth the read.) Experience: Yes, having years of experience is great, which Alex has but what I most valued about Alex’s experience is that he had been through the same struggle of losing weight and figuring out how to establish and maintain a healthier lifestyle as I am going through now. Because of this, I felt Alex had a unique perspective as a trainer and would be able to better understand my struggle with losing weight and be better equipped to assist me through that struggle. Experience was also very important to me as I was coming to the table with several injuries that any trainer I selected would have to have the know-how on how to handle those injuries during training while still allowing me to make regular progress. After a couple of complimentary sessions with Alex, there was no doubt he had the necessary experience to help me. Education: In addition to having over a decade of experience in personal training, Alex also had the appropriate credentials. One of these credentials was particularly important to me, his NASM certification as a Weight Loss Specialist. (FYI - You can check a trainer’s credentials on the NASM website.) Beyond his certification education, Alex also educated himself on me. Alex took the time to ask me questions and learn about me, what I wanted to accomplish with training, what injuries or medical issues I had, what concerns I had, what my day-to-day life was like and what my nutrition looked like. For me, this meant Alex was asking all the right questions to educate himself on how best to help me. Personality: If you’re looking for a trainer who will yell at you like a drill sergeant, then Alex isn’t the trainer for you. If you’re looking for a trainer to handle you with kid gloves and baby you, then again, Alex isn’t the trainer for you. If you are looking for a happy medium between the two with a few jokes and quotes of encouragement thrown in, then Alex is for you. Alex is encouraging yet pushes you beyond your limits just enough every time so every session always contains progress. When I first started working with Alex, there was a particular exercise that he had to modify in order for me to complete. Recently, I was able to complete this exercise, multiple reps, without modification and he was more excited about it then I was. Who wouldn’t want a trainer like that, someone who is excited for you and your progress. Communication: Alex has been great about communicating with me since day one. I tend to have a lot of questions and Alex has always been very good about answering those questions for me whether during our training sessions or via text (in a timely manner). Unlike some trainers, he does not brush off your questions. Alex will regularly check on me after a session to make sure none of my injuries were exacerbated due to the session. It was important to find someone I could communicate well with because I knew my injuries would be a constant issue and I needed to be comfortable enough talking with my trainer and expressing when I felt the pain from a pre-existing injury was too much and/or when I felt I was just incapable of doing an exercise due to my injuries without feeling I was being judged by my trainer. I have found Alex to be very easy to communicate with. Professionalism: The last quality on my list was professionalism. I have had trainers who were physically inappropriate with me, I have had trainers who would talk badly about their other clients either in front of me to another person or directly to me, I’ve had trainers that would spend majority of my session texting/playing on their phone and paying no attention to me at all. I have never had any of these issues with Alex. During our training sessions, he has always conducted himself in a professional manner making sure the focus is always on me and my training. I honestly believe Alex is worth every penny as a trainer. I’m very happy I found him, that I have had the opportunity to work with him and that I now know what it is like to work with a real trainer. **As of this review, I have worked with Alex for 8 weeks. **I have lost inches and pounds and have gained muscle and strength. **Several aches and pains I had prior to my training with Alex has dissipated. (I used to get terrible ankle and shin pain walking to and from work every day which has subsided substantially since training with Alex.)

I have been training with Ricky for a little over 3 years now. When I started with him I was 10 months post-op from having an L5-S1 Anterior Lumbar Fusion (back surgery). For ten years I had issues with my back, throughout my entire 20's I felt like I had the body of an unhealthy 80 year old. I was in pain all the time. I could not exercise or do most things people my age were doing without "paying for it" during the following weeks. I had heard about Ricky from some friends and they all spoke of him very highly. I was very skeptical about training because of my history with back pain, but eventually I was talked into at least giving it a try. The first time I worked out with Ricky, we talked extensively about my concerns and about my surgery. He developed a program to help me strengthen my core to help support my back and lessen the pain. When I started I couldn't run more than a couple of minutes, could barely squat 85 lbs. more than once and was still dealing with back pain. Within 6 months of training with Ricky I was running 2 miles, squatting 225 lbs 10 times and I no longer had back pain 24/7. Due to a new job and hectic travel schedule, I had to take a 10 month hiatus from the gym. However, I've since returned to the gym and part of that decision was due to that "sneaky" back pain I felt returning. Since being back in the gym the last 3 months, I am doing things I never thought possible. I am already up to running 3 miles every workout and I feel great. My strength is also returning rapidly. Training with Ricky was one of the best decisions I ever made, he has changed my life! People workout with trainers for all different reasons, I chose to do it because I wanted to take control of my body and be pain free. Ricky Jackson helped me achieve this goal. In addition, working out has helped to increase my self-esteem and confidence in my abilities.

What an excellent experience! On our first meeting; Jennifer listened to what I wanted to achieve, took the time to asses my previous injuries and has made a plan for me. I can't wait to see how far she can take me. I am not a gym rat, but want to be health so I can better take care of myself as I age. (I'm 54.) I don't want to be a helpless old lady, if I can help it. With Jennifer's help and knowledge, I can see myself getting stronger and healthier.

It's been 3 mos since I started training with Akshay 4 times a week. I have worked with trainers before at 24 hrs and privately..but there is no question he is the best. His technique is excellent and gives knowledge when asked or required and that's huge foe me . Great personality and never in your face. He has been punishing me for 3 mos and I keep goin back for more because I see the results. He is cool and easy but has a knack to make you slog and that matters. The best trainer yet.

I have been training with Will for just over 3 weeks now. In that short time, I have already learned so much, and I feel strongly that working with Will is one of the best health decisions that I have made. Will teaches me the fundamentals of strength training and fitness that many other trainers overlook the need to do. He helps me to understand the basics of how and why my body works the way that it does before, during and after training. Will unselfishly approaches my fitness with regards to my goals and what I hope to achieve through my workouts; and he teaches me that fitness is a journey, not a destination. Will is a highly motivating trainer and is skilled in knowing how hard to push his clients to enable them to achieve desired results. Will is patient, committed, cognizant of my abilities; and he literally works beside me and with me throughout my workouts unlike other trainers who walk away from their clients and/or act indifferent during training. Will is always actively engaged in his sessions and is more than worth the investment in my health. If you are ready to take your fitness to the next level and make positive changes in your life, I highly recommend Will Power Fitness.

I have been training with Fitness Stop for more than 2 years. Following their nutrition guide and training with Robert, I lost 30 pounds and went from flabby to strong. I have never had such great abs. The best part is that the trainer comes to you, so you don't have to motivate yourself to get to the gym. All the trainers that I have worked with have taken me through challenging and efficient workouts. They are always friendly and encouraging. Working with Fitness Stop is actually fun!

Ashleigh was chosen from a bundle of personal trainers to be our official trainer for our Real Women, Real Results Houston weight loss contest for I-REMOVE. She did wonderfully! Each of the ladies she worked with had so many amazing and great things to say about her too. All together they lost 48lbs across 4 ladies and that is wonderful! She worked with them on an individual basis and even put together a home routine for one contestant that couldn't make sessions. She did everything in her ability to help these ladies succeed and worked with various levels of fitness too. Ashleigh has even helped our company (InQpharm North America) internally by giving our office material for blogs, and helping us to come up with some in office exercises we can do to stay moving all day. You can't go wrong hiring Ashleigh, she was wonderful.

I've seen great results in the 3 weeks I've been working with Tonya. As a trainer she is knowledgeable, motivating and enjoyable to be around. She knows what I am trying to achieve and she makes a plan accordingly. When I was going to the gym, I would skip days if I wasn't feeling up to it, but with Tonya I actually look forward to workouts. This is my first time using a home trainer and I was nervous about who would be coming into my home, but Tonya is friendly, fun, professional. I recommend her highly to all my friends and family in the area!

After 3 years of being in and out of the gym I was looking for something other than the typical bench press, squat, and curls workout to get back in shape. After meeting with Mac for 5 minutes I knew he would be able to provide the knowledge, variety of workouts I was looking for and get this dad bod back in shape. He always keeps our workouts new and interesting and pushes you to the edge so you get a quality work out. If you want want a professional trainer work with Mac. I promise your muscles will be so sore they feel good and you will be flexing in the mirror in no time.

His process is very professional compare to other personal trainers I've been to he's professional with his job. He takes your initial measurement and body fat percent to track your progress along the way
