Turk is a very experienced trainer. He is patient and very knowledgeable. People who stick with him will definitely achieve their goals. My goal is to bulk up. When I started training with him, I was 150 pound. I was skinny and a hard gainer. Now I weigh 165 with pretty decent muscles. Those 30 pound gain is not fat but almost pure muscle gain. I am a chemistry graduate student . I always ask him about what this exercise does since I have un-naturally high curiosity. He is always patient and takes his time explaining things in detail with me. I am really glad that I found him. he is way better than regular trainers from 24 fitness, LaFitness, and etc. The only thing I wish more is that I could gain more. But like I said, I am a very hard gainer. I am happy that I gained 15 pounds of lean muscle over 1 year. So if I can do it with my disadvantaged body type, you can definitely achieve your goal way faster with him training you.
I have been training with Laura for about a month and I am so pleased the results. She puts a lot of thought into designing a routine that works for me individually, she listens to me and knows what my goals are. I really enjoy the space where we train; I feel like I can focus and get the most out of my time with her. Laura is a genuine person and a joy to work with. I’m so happy that I found her on here Thumbtack. I’m looking forward to see how I continue to progress working with her.
I am very happy with Rebecca as my personal trainer. She is very sincere with wanting to help improve my overall health. If I have a question, she answers it quickly. My training sessions with her go by quickly, are challenging and fun.
I had a great experience strength training with Jaylen. I saw him twice a week over the course of 3 months to help strengthen/rehab a snowboard knee injury that had me out for about 3 months prior to meeting him. He helped me achieve my goals and exceed my expectations on many levels. He was more than able to lay out a plan for each session and was very receptive to input as to what worked and what didn't. He also helped me on target areas that I wanted to see more improvement on. He was very upbeat and helped me to stay motivated and made me want push myself every session. Also made me want to stick with a diet regimen. The end result was fantastic and the overall experience was superb. I would highly recommend him and would work with him again in the future!
Coach Hieu was a great coach. After the first training session, my son learned the proper techniques in controlling the ball. Coach Hieu gave my son the confidence that he can improve his game. Most importantly , the Coach was patient and was detailed in explaining what he wanted in the training. My son enjoyed listening and learning what the coach had to say. Coach Hieu is one of the best coach. If you want to improve your game, I would recommend Coach Marcelo.
My wife did 12 strength training sessions with Jason. Our goal was to learn proper form when doing strength training and understand how to incrementally push ourselves using both machines and free weights. Jason was always well prepared and punctual for our sessions and made sure that we maximized the time we spent at the Gym. Jason demonstrated a wide variety of exercises to ensure complete strengthening of the body. We both feel a lot stronger since our sessions started and Jason has given us all the tools we need to succeed in our fitness goals.
I started working with Scott nearly one year ago. I wanted to work on my core strength because I was scheduled to do a 15 mile Power Walk in London and I wanted to avoid backaches and shin splints. I found my training leading up to the walk to be very helpful. When I returned from London, I decided to continue training with Scott because it had already made a big difference in my physical and overall health and well-being. Scott is great to work with and keeps things fun but challenging. I'm not a spring chicken and this program continues to serve me well. We decide together on skills and areas of focus. It seemed indulgent to have a personal trainer, but it is worth every bit of investment in myself. I now view it as an essential service to maintaining my health for the long run.
Taylor is amazing! She will push you, encourage you and challenge you every single day! What I love most is that even outside of training, she is constantly there for support and advice.
Dahn is a top-notch trainer/coach and wellness instructor! I have known her for three years while working with her at the Curves Center in Aloha. Dahn has been my coach and instructor in Zumba classes and as a trainer assisting individuals/groups during a 30 minute completion of the Curves circuit. Dahn is an extremely knowledgeable and positive person who shares her love of exercise, nutrition, positive thinking, and in directing us to additional book readings/web sites that are helpful to everyone in getting/keeping their bodies in tip-top shape! Sincerely, Kathy Kay Aloha Curves Member for 3 years January 2018
Constance has been training me for a little over a year now. I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. I am so grateful to have her in my life. I've learned so many valuable lessons about myself and fitness, all things that I will be able to keep with me forever. I feel like a better, more knowledge person because of what I have learned through our time together. 1. Constance is considerate and adaptable which goes a long way in personal training because she will be very intentional in meeting your needs and making sure you feel good. She's FUN and motivating and positive, but she's also honest and direct. She truly wants to help people and loves her job, which makes her SUCH a pleasure to be around. She makes it so that I actually look forward to working out, rather than dreading it like I used to. 2. She will kick your butt. She kicks mine every week until I'm crawling on the floor, and even though it's challenging, I ALWAYS walk away feeling strong, proud, and energetic. 3. Constance is also pretty much a physical therapist and personal trainer in one. She's taught me how to massage my muscle tissues so I have more range of motion. She's taught me about how I can correct my posture through working out my back. If there is something feeling out of line with my body, I can tell her about it and she's able to give me concrete advice on what exercises I can practice to solve my problems. 4. She knows a lot about fitness, health and nutrition as well, so she's full of helpful advice. She takes a more natural approach to things, which I appreciate. She isn't trying to take any shortcuts. She's trying to improve your overall well being for life. 5. She mixes up our workouts. I've learned so many fun new ways to use TRX, slam balls, kettle bells, all that equipment I used to see in the gym but had NO idea how to use. Her workouts are never boring. Okay, obviously I could go on and on about this girl. I've lost weight, gotten stronger, eat better, and exercise smarter since I've met Constance. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
My husband and I have been working out with Lexie for 3 years. She is always on time, professional and adapts our workouts to our individual needs. We are able to workout at our home and she is not phased by young kids or dogs joining us.
It is a great experience. He knows just what exercises are needed for an individual and helps you master them. He is also great helping you understand nutrition and how to eat when you are strength training. I am going into my 2nd phase and can't wait to see the results. I have noticed reaults from my 1st phase of training. :)
I hired Lisa for a ten-session personal training package in my home, to kick-start my fitness journey after an extended illness. My experience with her has been wonderful. Lisa shows up on time and gets right to the warmup and work out. I set up some personal parameters that I wanted to work within, and she has designed our sessions within those. She is friendly, encouraging, and makes the workouts fun. She watches for form to prevent injury and gives tips on what to be cautious of to stay safe in different moves. We have integrated some yoga moves and even a bit of meditation at my request. I will be sorry to have our sessions end. Great job, Lisa!! Thank you for getting me on my way!
Let me start off by saying that I hate jogging to keep in shape. I will happily sprint around an Ultimate (Frisbee) field for hours, but I can't stand going for a run. When I started medical school and did not have time to play pick-up games, I got out of shape. With the club season for Ultimate on the horizon, I needed to get back on my game. I thought that in order to develop the speed, agility, and endurance I needed on the field, I would have to eventually do some running exercises. So I joined the gym in hopes that I could work out on my own time and have enough equipment to not get bored. But it was too overwhelming. I did not know how to structure a workout to fit my needs and did not have enough experience with the equipment to ensure proper form. Luckily, a guy at the gym recommended that I try a personal training package with Berley. Even though he has never played Ultimate, he knew exactly what I needed. Each session was unique, but challenging. Sometimes I came in slightly sore from the previous session, but he would have a workout that focused on using my muscles in a completely different way. Berley was great at recognizing when I could push myself further and when I needed a break. Even though the workouts were intense, I always felt really good about myself when I left. The best part: Berley never made me do any running :) Aside from feeling good at the gym, the results have been very noticeable on the field. I am able to sprint a lot faster than I ever had before. My endurance is better. I can jump higher. I am able to change directions more quickly. It feels good to be able to sprint equally hard when switching between defense and offense on a long point. It feels good to stay on the field for many consecutive points before feeling tired. It feels great to keep up with some of the best ladies in town and leave a lot of other people in the dust. And when I'm feeling tired on the field, I think of my sessions with Berley and tell myself that I have a lot more in me. Berley was an amazing and inspiring trainer. He helped me find strength that I didn't know I had and renewed my passion for fitness. I am sad he left Portland, but I feel lucky that I got a chance to train with him.
I sought out personal training on the recommendation of my physical therapist. The goal was to continue strengthening exercises to improve the condition of my injured ankle and problematic knees. I have to admit, I was terrified to start working with a personal trainer... I was obese, out of shape, and feared that I would be judged. Then I stumbled across Corey at Thrive Body Balance and realized I had nothing to fear. He was very welcoming and willing to work with me unconditionally and without judgment. I've been working out with Corey weekly for nearly 6 months now. I feel so much stronger, and that has helped me both physically and in terms of my confidence. I also feel like I'm taking great strides towards lifelong health, as Corey works with me on "corrective" exercises to improve the alignment and balance of my body. I would most definitely recommend Corey to anyone and everyone. He is extremely knowledgeable, understanding, flexible, patient, wise, and truly just a joy to spend time with. After all this time, I still look forward to my weekly personal training sessions. They have been worth every penny, and I feel very lucky to have found a trainer like Corey.
