Variety is the spice of life.

This is particularly true when it comes to exercise. Regardless of whether you are training for a movie role, triathlon or wedding, to recover from an illness, or to return to your lifelong fitness journey, it’s important to keep the body guessing. So many different ways exist to work out a single muscle group. In fact it’s good for your muscles to challenge them in different ways. A knowledgeable personal trainer will help ensure that you don’t get into a workout rut.

Why hire a personal trainer?

Safety is number one. A good personal trainer will: demonstrate an exercise for you as many times as you need; guide your form; determine the weight, resistance level and number of repetitions that are ideal for you so that you challenge yourself; provide constant feedback; and answer any questions you may have about your workout and about fitness and nutrition in general.
Your time. A good personal trainer will produce results, by: making the most of your time; maximizing the benefits of each and every workout session; and providing exercise and nutrition plans for when you are on your own, unable to get to the gym or having a busy week.

Mansur--aka the Greatness-- deserves tons of the credit...

Mansur Mendizabal is the best. Since I started training with him, I have lost over 20 pounds and kept it off for over two years. I am 48 years old: in the best shape of life and look better than ever. Mansur--aka the Greatness-- deserves tons of the credit for helping me get there. Mansur has created his own training system that he calls functional training. Through one minute drills, he works your entire body in one hour or less, focusing on strength, cardio, and, agility. He pays special attention to core strength. Even thought I had been training for years, my first session with Mansur knocked me on my ass. Over time, though, I have made amazing gains. I now wear a weight vest during my sessions and can do multiple one minutes sets of medicine ball push ups with my feet on a Bosu. It blows me away. My self esteem has never been better and I have tons more energy than I used to. Plus, Mansur makes training fun. He has a great sense of humor and is a master story teller. I highly recommend him has a trainer. Start now and have fun.
