I love and enjoy Israel! He is professional and going to push you to your limit ! I can't wait until I start my training back up again.
What really impresses me the most about Jose is that he genuinely cares about you as a person. He is very attentive to any pain and discomfort, and he does exceptionally well at finding alternative exercises to work around that trouble area. He does well to address both short-term and long term goals, and will help you form a comprehensive plan to meet those objectives. Jose understands the body well and keeps informed of different exercise fads. The best advice I can give it to keep consistent in your training with him. Do not get impatient or frustrated if you do not see immediate results. It took me about 3 months before I really saw any noticeable differences myself (others noticed them before me), but after I hit that point, it was a steady increase for me. Give him a shot if you want a great trainer and to have fun while training too.
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.)
My trainer pushes me to reach my fitness goals, and more. I love that he's more focused on your overall health, and not just building mussels. I've lost 7lbs so far, and I've on some 6 sessions so far (within 3 weeks). That's awesome! I would recommend LMSL Training to everyone.
Ricky took me from a couch potato (who could barely make it through my first training session) to a fit and motivated regular at the gym. I lost pounds and inches, and I gained strength, endurance and confidence. He challenged and encouraged me at each step. I highly recommend Ricky for training at any level. Whether you're a beginner or a star athlete, he can help you reach your fitness goals.
I've been weight training for 25 years and have a pretty good understating of fitness & nutrition. After my first session with Will, I knew immediately that I was working with a guy that had a very high fitness & nutrition IQ. Will takes an inside out approach, the right approach, to your body, and although the weights and reps seem at first a bit entry level, you will leave each session knowing that you just got worked out in a way you never have. I can honestly say that I would very highly recommend Will to anyone that is serious about a real long lasting transformation. No matter what your end desire might be, Will knows exactly how to get you there without wasting time or money! Jeff Snyder General Sales Manager Bentley/Rolls-Royce Houston
Akshay Raju - Personal Training is really great. I was skinny but too unmotivated and shy to go to the gym. I had Akshay Raju as my personal trainer and now I noticed a positive change in my appearance. I am happy and now more confident with myself. I definitely recommend Akshay Raju to anyone looking for great quality personal training. Karla Gonzalez - 07.24.2016
I really enjoy working with Amy. She is professional and always gives me a different workout. She is also flexible with our training time.
Robert is amazing! I've only been training with him for about 10 days but I already see major changes in my body. Losing those last 10 lbs has been so difficult for me in the past, but I'm already down 5 pounds since we started.If you're looking for someone to whip your body into shape, while keeping you entertained the whole time, Robert is your guy. Investing in myself while working with Robert is the best decision I've ever made!
Sid is a one stop fitness trainer. No matter what your goals are, Sid knows how to get you there. I started with Sid training my son in mixed martial arts, the workouts were so interesting that I joined and started training. So if you are looking for a 5 star trainer, then look no further.
This is my first time working with a personal trainer and my experience has been nothing but positive. José Alberto is 100% committed to get the results you are looking for. When you are training with him even little adjustments he does when lifting weights, from the way you position your shoulders or back to how your far apart your feet are make a great difference and the best part is that you see the results. I have been working with him for only one month and I have seen faster results with him by training smarter and targeting those areas that you want to improve.
Brady knows his stuff, tailors workout to your age, abilities and physical condition, and he is professional - on time and prepared. Oh! And he's fun. If I hadn't moved away, I'd still be training with him.
Jonathan was by far the most involved trainer I've had to date. I've gone through 4 trainers in my life, none of which before Jonathan was personally invested in me sticking to the program and checking in on my progress. I opted to choose from his lowest cost training program. Even though I only saw him 5 times in one month, he made sure to be available to answer all of my MANY questions about the program and it's constantly changing challenges. One thing I truly enjoyed about training with Johnathan was his emphasis on safety and form. One detail I enjoyed about training with Jonathan the most was his concentration to you in your work out. He was never distracted by his phone or other things during my work out. He truly made personal training PERSONAL. That which is something that is lost with other trainers who get distracted easily or seem detached during your work out.
Personal training. I've trained with Jason off and on for the last 10 or so years. He tailors to what you are looking for in fitness. Whether it be gain muscle mass or losing inches he's the man to go to. He very knowledgeable in all aspects of fitness and can answer any questions you may have. He's been my trainer and more importantly a friend.
Her transformation is motivation alone! I still do my online training through Missplatinumbody! Couldn’t be more happy to have her as my trainer.
Zein made getting in shape easy and stayed engaged with me through the whole process. Making sure I was staying on track on down days and prepping for the week. Thanks to her dedication and training I lost 40lbs and feel great.
Greg is my personal trainer at Houston Gym. At the request of my naturopathic and primary care physicians, I was instructed to begin a resistance training program to address a few health issues. I was skeptical of personal training, was unsure of my capacity to "stick-to-it" and achieve my aims. The owner of the gym suggested I work out with Greg. 2 months later, I am in better shape than in my 30s (I'm 54). Greg is conscientious, knowledgeable, skilled and is exemplary at tailoring my workout to fit my aims. He knows how to vary a work out (upper and lower) to address not only groups of muscles but refine the workout so as to address specific muscles that need toning. His attention to detail helped me calibrate and equalize what seemed to be an strength imbalance between my left and right sides (very odd). He is also quite patient, truly listens and varies the workout routine to keep it building my body without the boredom that can be possible in working out. Not only is Greg a great trainer, but he also is quite knowledgeable about the body's musculoskeletal system and the nature of injuries to the system. I recently had a shoulder injury (doing upward dog in yoga); and had to see an orthopedic specialist. Greg was very sensitive to the doctors instructions and modified my upper body workouts in such a manner that I can continue to build my upper body at the same time give my shoulder injury time to heal. Without question, the reason I'm still with Greg as my personal trainer is that he makes it a challenge, yet always within my range. Highly recommend Greg
I’v been training with coach Carlos for more than two years, since day one he’s been motivating me to grow on every area on martial arts, pushing me with my weight loss and my discipline, he’s not just a great trainer also a great person.
I been training with Torrance for about 3 weeks now and I couldn't had ask for a better trainer. He is very knowledgeable on all aspects of body trainning technics. He knows what's best for you and your goals that you have set to accomplish.
Eric is one of the most patient and challenging trainers out there! If you are willing to put in the work he will stick by you and help you through it all. No matter your level of comfort or expertise he will adjust your workouts and meal plans to fit your needs and abilities! I was beyond a beginner and he got me started and on track with weekly progress. If he can help and train me to my goals he can help anyone !! He is an awesome person, motivator, and trainer! I would recommend him to anyone!
